WHY HIRE US?
We understand that the wedding planning journey can be both exciting and overwhelming, especially in these changing times. The wedding industry has always echoed the importance of hiring a wedding planner, and boy, have things evolved since then! The impact of Covid has stirred up increased costs and tighter budgets, shifting the landscape of wedding planning.
Remember those days when the average wedding budget ranged from $25,000 to $35,000? Well, Covid brought a twist, pushing those numbers to new heights – between $35,000 and $50,000. The basic elements that make up your perfect day - catering, photography, music DJ, bar services, and venues - have all seen their prices climb. You might wonder why. Perhaps it's the rebound from lost Covid revenue, or simply the rising cost of living. Regardless, it's you, the radiant bride, who ends up bearing the brunt of it all.
Let's talk about venues. They've hiked up their rates, introduced extra fees of up to 15% for every vendor involved, and even curtailed the time you have to bring your wedding vision to life. Can you believe it? There's even a local venue that dared to raise its rates from $12,000 to $18,000 in just one year.
But fret not, because at Embellished Wedding and Events, we said, "Enough is enough!" We're here to rein in those escalating costs and make your dream wedding an achievable reality. We're not just wedding planners; we're your allies, your advocates, and your budget warriors.
We've worked tirelessly to devise a solution that brings those wedding expenses back to a comfortable $25,000. And guess what? We've gone a step further. We've crafted packages that encompass everything you need: the planner, venue, catering, bar service, photography, music DJ, decor, floral arrangements, and a day coordinator. And the best part? These packages start at just $12,000. Sounds almost magical, right? But it's not magic; it's a result of our dedication to you.
How did we pull this off? It's all about the relationships we've fostered with vendors across the state. These relationships allow us to secure discounts for you while promising our partners a steady flow of business. In fact, we collaborated with our vendors for over 300 weddings in 2022 alone. But that's not all. We've also made strategic investments in certain wedding elements like floral and decor, allowing us to offer you a whopping 50% discount and help you save big.
Oh, and let's not forget about the venues. We've scoured the land to find those hidden gems that not only fit your vision but also fit your budget, further enhancing the value of your package.
But we didn't stop there. We evolved into more than just wedding planners; we became a Wedding Management Company. Like that expert construction contractor who brings your house to life, we oversee every facet of your wedding with precision. From budget management to negotiating prices with your chosen services, we're there every step of the way. We handle quality control, staff management, product coordination, and time management, ensuring your voice is heard throughout the process.
So, gorgeous brides, who do you want by your side? A regular wedding planner? Or a Wedding Management Company that's also your venue, catering, bar service, resource hub, and quality assurance all in one? A company that makes affordability a core principle without sacrificing your dreams.
