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?
