Top 5 Reasons To Hire At Your Service Events Planner LLC

March 6, 2009 by  
Filed under Featured, Wedding

Lynchburg Party PlannerAt Your Service Events Planner LLC is an awards-winning weddings and events company, with offices in Chevy Chase MD and Alexandria VA. Weddings are something that all of us dream of as being romantic and so perfect. But of course when the time draws near and we have to actually plan our wedding, reality steps in and we realize that all is not as exciting as it seemed. Hiring At Your Service Events Planner LLC, who is an Accredited  Wedding Planner, is just the answer for calming the anxiety that goes into wedding planning. But if you are still not convinced, let’s take a look at all the things that we will do for you and save you anxiety.

We Manage Stress!

The first thing that automatically comes with planning a wedding reception is a lot of stress. There are hundreds of details that go into planning the perfect wedding ceremony and reception. If you treat your wedding as one big project, this project is going to need a project manager who is going to be your wedding planner. Connie Amos-Parsons, owner of At Your Service Events Planner LLC, happens to be a former Project Manager PMP. We are going to help reduce the stress by doing what we do best, stress management.  We will manage even the smallest details from the budget to all the different things that will require hiring, coordinating and contracting wedding vendors. We will do all the leg work for you, not only making you feel at ease but giving you ample time to take a break, pamper yourself and also give you time to spend with your family and friends.

Your Investment/Budgeting

The wedding budget is obviously a very important part and needs to be done prior to everything else. As novices in planning your wedding and event, you often wind up wasting precious time and resources by making the wrong choices, which we are well versed with and know how to get you the best deals from the best vendors. We will assure the services provided, by having contracts from reliable recommended vendors. Wedding vendors will often do favors for a planner that they do lots of business with, but would not be available to the couple. You do not need to worry that we will stifle your ideas. We will work in coordination with you and get your input and approval prior to making a decision. We are an added value and have resources that you will still be saving a lot of money.

Distinctive Appeal

Often couples get fascinated by the latest trends that are just not practical. You can’t decide how to make your wedding ceremony and reception special and distinctive from others. We get it.  We will help you achieve your ideas in a realistic way and also provide you with suggestions to  shape your ideas into the unique wedding you dreamed of.

Advisor

With so many possibilities, couples can feel overwhelmed and often end up buying something they don’t plan because they have been pressured by friends or family. We will know who are the best in the business and guide you into buying just what is right for your wedding.

Middleman 

Although it’s hard to believe, couples can get a lot of emails and calls by all the different vendors they have seen and visited at bridal shows. Also, wedding vendors you choose may ask you a lot of technical questions you may have no idea about. That is where we as your wedding coordinator will step in to assist you with clarifying contracts and advising you as a go-between.

Do yourself a favor and consider contacting Connie at At Your Service Events Planner LLC today! You may be surprised at what is really possible for your dream nuptials for you and your fiance.  At Your Service Events Planner LLC–we plan great weddings and events!

 

Why Should You Use At Your Service Events Planner LLC?

Filed under Featured, Wedding

Lynchburg Wedding PlannerAt Your Service Events Planner LLC  is an award-winning wedding and events planner.  Why should you use At Your Service Events Planner LLC is a question that is asked by clients as well as industry professionals. What sets us apart? The term Wedding Consultant or Wedding Coordinator has been misused so often that it has become confusing for people to truly understand what a professional Wedding Consultant really does.  Let’s break it down.

We all know that professional photographers produce beautiful pictures and present them in elegant wedding albums. Videographers capture all of the colorful emotions of the wedding day in a video. The wedding florist works hard to arrange a picture perfect bouquet for the bride and fill the ceremony and reception area with beautiful flowers. The Wedding DJ (or band) plays the role of Master of Ceremonies and sets the tone with music.

Nearly every professional in the wedding industry has a tangible product that they offer couples. A Wedding Consultant/Coordinator/Planner, however, has a more challenging time trying to sell an intangible service. So what does a Wedding Consultant really do?

At Your Service Events Planner LLC wears many hats.  We call ourselves–Ninjas!

  • We act as facilitator between the couple and the various people and facilities involved in the wedding (Church, reception facility, vendors, family members, wedding party, etc.).
  • We take on the role of financial planners who assist couples in creating a realistic budget and help them stick to it.
  • As Consultants we are teachers who educate couples on wedding etiquette and protocol.
  • We are legal consultants who review contracts before the couple actually signs on the dotted line.
  • We are talent recruiters who recommend the most professional and suitable vendors for each couple.
  • We are designers who make sure everything is presented well and is color-coordinated. We are pleased to have a floral and decor designer on our team.
  • We may also take on the role as therapists who work hard to keep everybody sane in the midst of all the stress; we are “fire fighters” who are quick in responding to negative issues and thus quick to put out fires.
  • And lastly, we are the logistics managers who cater to every detail during the planning stages, coordinate with the venue manager, and on the wedding day.

With “wedding planning” topping people’s list as one of the biggest projects of their life, doesn’t it make sense to hire a “project manager” to lead the way?  What sets us apart? Fortunately, Connie, the owner of At Your Service Events Planner LLC, has experience as a Project Manager PMP.

Besides allowing you to focus on preparing yourself for the big day, we can also be helpful to vendors to make sure vendors are paid on time and help to convey what the bride and groom really wants. We create brilliant timelines and share them with all vendors.

  • We serve as team leader on the couple’s wedding day.
  • We serve as the point person for everyone involved in the wedding.
  • We want the team of professionals to do a spectacular job so we are constantly communicating with each vendor.
  • We especially make sure that each vendor is up to date on any changes on the wedding itinerary and timeline and make certain that vendors receive their meal in a timely manner.

With the presence of a top Accredited Wedding Planner, everyone benefits.

  • The couple can focus on being the guests of honor.
  • Having a Coordinator frees up all the other professionals to utilize their gifts and talents to the fullest, not having to spend their energy on the time consuming aspects of the planning.

The next time you hear someone comment, what exactly does a Wedding Consultant/Planner/Coordinator do? The better question is what is it they don’t do?

What are some areas that At Your Service Events Planner LLC may be responsible for?

  • Provide resources for reliable and trustworthy vendors.
  • Give guidance in a cost-effective planning approach.
  • Offer etiquette guidance.
  • Provide traditional, contemporary and practical tips.
  • Monitor Wedding expenses and payment.
  • Advise on contracts, bill of sale, proposals and insurance.
  • Attend the rehearsal, ceremony and reception to insure a smooth effortless day.
