Lynchburg Wedding PlannerHe’s bent down on one knee, looked you in the eyes and given you the promise of a lifetime together. You said, “Yes!” but now you’re saying “Oh no!” Now that you’re planning a wedding there are so many things to do, so many plans to make. And especially in Alexandria which offers everything from Old Town charm and history to beautiful luxury and historic venues in the DC, MD and Northern VA metro area. To put your mind at ease, you need to hire…At Your ServiceEvents Planner!

Step 1

Surf the web. At Your Service Events Planner has two locations–Alexandria VA and Chevy Chase MD.  By simply plugging “Lynchburg Event Planners” into your favorite search engine, a myriad of results will pop up. Begin checking out their sites, read their bios and keep a list of the top 5 or 6 that excite you.  We hope that At Your Service Events Planner will be top of mind!

Step 2

Contact the Event or Wedding Planner. If you already have your date set or in mind, be sure to first check that they are available and you can hire them to plan your DC, MD or VA event. If they are available, continue the dialogue based upon how much you’re looking for them to do for your day. Try and narrow your list based upon availability, personality, knowledge and experience.

Step 3

Meet with the potential event and wedding planners. Now that you’ve narrowed your list, set-up a time to meet with the Alexandria event and wedding planners either in their office or in a neutral location. While you should discuss specifics about budget, colors and how you imagine the day, this stage is really about gauging your potential event planner. Do your personalities compliment each other? Some people want a strong-willed wedding planner, while others merely want some assistance. Also, be sure to look at their reviews. A wedding and event planner should be happy to give them to you.

Step 4

Make your decision. Now is the tough part. Hopefully out of the few people you met with, you found a connection, and we hope your decision will be At Your Service Events Planner! But a note of advice would be, don’t skimp on the price here. If we are truly going to be the brains behind the operation, you want a good set of brains, not a cheap set!

Step 5
Use us! You hired us, don’t be afraid to ask questions. After all our knowledge and expertise is why you hired us.
