What you should and shouldn't expect from your Wedding Planner!

Happy #WeddingWednesday loves! 

I know last week, I gave you some tips for hiring a Day of Coordinator  and today I want to talk about what happens you sign on the dotted line! As a planner, I want to make sure you know to expect and not to expect! 

1. Expect that your planner has your best interest at heart.  It is our job to make sure your vision comes to life, so trust the advice we give you while helping you plan your wedding! 

2: Expect that your planner will guide you through the planning process as seamlessly as possible. You obviously hired a planner because you realize you couldn't do everything yourself, so make sure you allow us to guide you through each step and not rush the process. I get it, you're excited and ready for the Big Day, just relax and enjoy each moment! 

3: Expect open and honest communication from your planner; they aren't mind readers. Make sure you communicate with us with any concerns as they come up, and know that we are equipped with the expertise to tackle any situation and solve it for you! 

4: Don't expect your Wedding Planner to be your slave. Just because you are paying for a service, doesn't mean you "own" us..... enough said.

5: Expect that your Wedding Day will be flawless! We work hard to make sure your day is everything you've dreamed of, so let us take care of any hiccups that may come and you just enjoy your day! 

Make sure you like, comment and share this post with a friend because FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS PLAN BAD WEDDINGS! 

Until Next Time, 

XOXO, Amber

My journey to becoming an Event Planner dates back to my childhood, assisting my mother with planning and executing parties at our home and for my dad’s fraternity. I was training to be a professional dancer at the time, so I never thought about being a “Party Planner”, it was just fun for me to help her. After a fabulous and exciting dance career that spanned 20 plus years, I began working as a dance instructor at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in downtown Chicago. Because of my excitement for our studio events and knack for organizing parties, I was soon promoted to Guest Director. This position allowed me to see that Marketing and Event Management was something I enjoyed, and it was then I realized this could be my next career move! I spent the next two years learning as much as I could about the Event Industry, including an internship with Desiree Moore Dent, Owner of Dejanae Events,as well as studying and becoming a Certified Wedding & Event Planner/Designer through Lovegevity’s Wedding Planning Institute. This is how I learned more about the business side of running your own business, which was invaluable information! During this time, I offered my services to family and friends for any event they may have been having to gain as much "real world" experience as possible. In May of 2013, I decided to get my business license and launch Events with Ambiance. It has truly been eye opening that I am now an entrepreneur, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! I am grateful to have family and friends support me, my company has truly become a Family Business!! I am blessed to surround myself with people who are just as passionate about my business as I am; for me, Event Planning is about more than just throwing a great party, it's about creating an unforgettable experience for my clients and their guests!
