Planning a wedding is not only time consuming, but overwhelming to the average bride. Unless you have experience in event planning, relationships with wedding vendors, extra time in your day, and little interest in enjoying your actual wedding… then YES, planning your own wedding might be the best option. However, let’s keep it real. Let’s minimize the stress and maximize the fun! Wouldn’t it be nice to take your vision to an individual that is not only experienced in wedding planning, but has a reputation for being a master of organization and a true visionary with an eye for style.
Last week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Sarah Willard, owner of Music City Events, one of Nashville’s Top Wedding Planners. We’ve worked with Sarah and her team on many events and I quote “the weddings are gorgeous, the couples are happy, the schedule is flawlessly executed and the events are simply fun!” So, what’s the formula?
Your First Meeting w/ Music City Events
When you meet with Nashville wedding planners Music City Events (MCE), it’s more than just a discussion about your wedding, it’s an opportunity for Sarah and her team to learn more about your lifestyle. What is your vision and what is your top priority? The goal is to not only create a fabulous event, but an event that represents who you are as a couple.
“I always ask my clients to send 4 images that resonate with them. From there, I create an inspiration board to help me better understand their vision and design their event” – Sarah Willard (Music City Events)
Choosing your Vendors
While MCE has worked with just about every reputable vendor in the Nashville area, you’ll never get bombarded with too many options. Their rolodex of contacts is categorized by style, budget, and personality, so after careful research, they are able to present their clients with options that best meet their needs.
“It’s our job to make sure our clients have everything they envisioned for their wedding and that their top priorities are met, so regardless of their budget, we have the ability to put together the perfect package using our resources. If you meet with us before you book any vendors, we’ll make sure you don’t have to give up something important in order to make something else happen. ” –Sarah Willard (Music City Events)
MCE has a package for every budget. Their prices range from $500 – $3975 and include everything from basic planning assistance to full planning and “day of” coordination. In 2014, MCE will be launching a virtual planner that will give brides the opportunity to organize their event online through an innovative system that will provide professional documents and resources to help facilitate the independent planning process.
Why we love working with Music City Events
Photography is a top priority for many of our clients. When we work with MCE, we never have to worry about our couples losing portrait time or missing photo opportunities due to inadequate time allowance. Someone from their team is ALWAYS available and present to orchestrate the day’s activities ensuring that people are where they need to be as moments unfold.
Hire a planner, but make sure you hire a GOOD planner! We’ve had the pleasure of working with many great Nashville wedding planners in addition to Music City Events.
