If you’re not planning to have any formal events at your Florida Keys wedding, and you’d like a cocktail party more than a dance party, it may make sense to save money by hiring a non-professional. But if you’re investing thousands of dollars on creating the perfect day, please don’t jeopardize it by hiring someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.

As important as vendors are to a successful wedding day, you can imagine how nervous we get when clients say they are using friends or family members as vendors.

Weddings in the Florida Keys are magical, special, romantic, and a day to remember. However, planning a destination wedding is sometimes stressful, time consuming, and although fun and exciting, can be a lot of work for a bride and groom. There are a lot of decisions that need to be made and plenty of small details that are easy to overlook. Hiring help to ensure that your wedding turns out exactly how you dreamed is always a good idea. Wedding planners often offer two options: Day of wedding coordination or wedding planning service. But what kind of help do you need from your wedding planner in the Florida Keys?

Day-of Wedding Planning:

Day-of Wedding planning is exactly what it sounds like, day-of help with small details to make sure the event runs smoothly. Day of wedding planning is perfect for couples that are capable of planning the wedding themselves. If you are organized, excited about the process, and have enough time to commit, planning your own wedding may be the perfect route to take. While this option has the potential to be overwhelming and stressful, there are so many benefits to planning your own wedding including saving money and being 100% involved. But, when it comes down to the day of the wedding, you do not want to be worried about what time the flowers are arriving, when the cake should be brought out, or where the band should set up. This is where a day-of wedding planner steps in to make sure that all of your hard work in planning this wedding pays off and runs smoothly. On your special day you should not have to worry about any details except saying “I do!”

Full Wedding Planning:

Wedding planning can be overwhelming and time consuming and many couples are unable or don’t want to commit to planning everything themselves leading up to their wedding day. Full-service wedding planning offers couples help every step of the way from picking a venue to overseeing the vendors. This type of planning allows couples to rely on someone else to stay organized and on top of the planning process while still being very involved in decision making. However, this type of planning can be very expensive especially when customization is desired.

The best type of planning is different for each couple. Your decision will likely come down to budget and time. Talk to your partner about what would be best for your pocketbook and the ideal option to minimize stress!

Sadly, I had to help a Bride cancel her wedding this week: She arrived into town for her destination wedding with hopes that the hurricane would take a turn to the north into the Atlantic Ocean. A few days later, the county issued a mandatory evacuation for all tourists. I could tell she was fighting back tears when she called me asking "What am I going to do?"

It's not a subject most Brides want to discuss or think about when they are planning the most important day of their lives. Weather does not discriminate. It doesn't matter where you live, inclement weather is considered an "act of God" and cannot be ...
