Today I am happy to present you with images from my recent Disney’s Snow White inspired Wedding photoshoot! With the hard work of many vendors (all of whom will be listed at the end of this post in great detail!) we were able to bring together a beautiful snowy tribute to the loveable red-lipped Snow White.  With the AWESOME Fieldstone Barn at Armstrong Farms as our backdrop, we were literally stepping into a fairytale fit for any bride to be! If youre looking for a bit of Disney wedding inspiration look no further!

Wedding Planning Wednesday 

Welcome back folks to our first Wedding Wednesday of 2015.  I had great plans for the monthly WW (Wedding Wednesday) last year and well… life got in the way and I have been a total slacker.

This is NOT going to be the case this year.  You will get information on planning your wedding if it’s the last thing I do!

I am SO happy to kick this years tips off with the topic of Wedding Planners.  A lot of people don’t realize the value in them so I wanted to shine the spot light of an awesome Pittsburgh Wedding Planner I have had the privilege to work with this past year and have come to call a friend.  But enough of my yapping about it – Lets here directly from the source – Ashley of AB Occasion Design.

From Wedding Planner Ashley of AB Occasion Design:

So what does a wedding planner do?  The world may never have a complete definition but nevertheless, take away this message: the primary duty of a wedding planner is to satisfy the concerns that the bride had when she decided to look for a wedding planner. No two weddings are alike and the duties of a wedding planner changes with each and every client he or she will work with.

So let’s get right down to it! The following is my summary of the primary duties and skills that wedding planners are responsible for, from Engagement to Honeymoon!

When a wedding planner first meets with a client, the conversation should consist of simply explaining the packages available and briefly discussing the type of wedding the client wants. Typically, a wedding planner is hired for either Full Service or Day-of Coordination, and it is imperative that the planner fully explains to the client what is included in each of their packages.

Day of coordination involves taking care of all the logistical details of the wedding on the day of the wedding itself.

Full Service planning involves everything included in Day of Coordination plus a lot more, such as managing budget, vendors, venues, and all the nitty-gritty details that go into planning a wedding.

What does a day of coordinator do?

A day of coordinator will coordinate the logistics of your wedding day to make sure that everything that you have spent months planning runs exactly how you envisioned. From the arrival times of the florist, limo pick up and drop offs to packing all your gifts and goodies at the end of the night, the day of coordinator they will take care of it all.

It is strongly recommended that every couple that is planning their own wedding hire a day of coordinator. Planning the entire wedding without a coordinator is already stressful enough, so the least you can do is hire someone who can handle the stress of the day. Your peace of mind on your wedding day will be worth every penny!

What should you expect from your day of coordinator?

When your day of coordinator comes on board, she or he will be the new point of contact for your vendors. They will introduce themselves to your vendors and get an idea of what to expect on the wedding day. Also, the coordinator will review your contracts and understand exactly who is doing what and when. She will create your day of timeline, which will break down all the details regarding arrival times, setup and breakdown.  The day before your wedding, your coordinator will run your rehearsal, and on your wedding day, she will be there to run the show!  We’re there to make sure that each hour of your wedding day is worry-free and seamless.

What is included in full service planning?

Full Service wedding planning is comprised of everything included in Day of Coordination in addition to months of planning and perfecting prior to the big day.

It includes determining a budget for the wedding, selection of venues and vendors and turning magic into reality, Save the Dates, wedding invitations, rehearsal dinner invitations, menus, place cards, programs and welcome letters.

Wedding planners can save you time and money.  AB Occasion Design offers an initial, no-cost meeting with couples to learn about them both as individuals and as a couple and to determine their wedding wants and needs.  Based on this information, and the couple’s budget, we’ll customize individual planning packages with the services most beneficial to the couple.

We can help you bring your vision to life and we’ll let you actually enjoy your wedding.

You hired us for a reason let us sweat the small stuff and you sit back and enjoy your big day!

Still on the fence about hiring a wedding planner let us treat you to a cup of coffee and answer any and all your questions you may have about your new best friend…Your Wedding Planner!

(Hey it’s Krystal again!) So there you have it.  Day of Coordinator or full wedding coordinator.  It’s SO worth considering.  Wedding Planners make the day go by without a hitch and they take the worry off of you.  Ashley is worth a call!
