Florida Wedding Expo – July 30, 2017

I know, I know it’s been awhile. Well, I’m back and I promise to stick around! : -)

Okay so let’s get down to business. This past Sunday I participated in Florida Wedding Expo at the Orange County Convention Center.

Why Should I Hire a Wedding Planner or Coordinator?

I have met some brides that think just because the venue has a coordinator they don’t need a wedding planner. Although a venue coordinator is great and extremely helpful (especially to the wedding planner), outside of the needs of the venue they are limited to assisting you with planning the other details for the day. So with all that being said, here are my Top 5 Reasons to Hire  a Wedding Planner: Continue reading “Why Should I Hire a Wedding Planner or Coordinator?”
