How to Know When You Need the Olivia Pope of Weddings

Not every couple needs a wedding designer + coordinator.  It may seem counter-intuitive to admit that, but let’s be honest with each other, okay?

Planning a wedding should be exciting, romantic, and a true bonding experience with your partner, family, and friends.  Planning a wedding should not be stressful and consume your every waking moment.  This is why wedding planners exist.  Necessity really is the mother of invention. And that’s the exact reason Ashley and I partnered to create our business, Noir Event Co.  Not only will we take away the stress of planning a wedding, but we’ll give you back your much needed sanity.  It’s your job, your families’ job, and your friends’ job to enjoy your wedding, not work it.

So, how do you know when having the help of your Aunt Susie and second cousin just won’t be enough?  Let’s attack this head-on.  No nonsense.  You may want to consider hiring a wedding planner if…

  • You have no idea where to start and the idea of planning a wedding sends you into a self-induced anxiety spiral.  
    No worries.  We’re basically the Olivia Pope of weddings.  If you don’t know who Olivia Pope is, please begin watching Scandal immediately.  Basically, we’ll swoop in, hold your hand, calm your nerves, set you at ease, and rock your wedding.  We hope we get to share a bottle of red wine with you at some point, too.
  • You have lots of ideas, but don’t know how to organize and make your vision come to life.
    You’re our favorite!  We love couples that bring a binder of magazine clippings to our first meeting, send us links to their Pinterest page, and email us “I love this! How can we do this?” ideas in the middle of the night.  We’ll keep you focused, take all the boring/not-so-fun stuff off of your plate, and guide you through the process.  We promise it will be fun.
  • Your venue has an on-site wedding coordinator, but you don’t feel like you’re getting the attention or full-service your wedding will require.  
    Listen, I’ve worked with some amazing on-site coordinators.  Heck, I used to be one!  On-site coordinators know the venue like the back of their hand and are absolutely key to making your wedding a success.  We know how to partner with your venue, fill in the gaps, and execute your wedding flawlessly.
  • You simply just don’t have the time or energy to devote to planning a wedding.  
    Guess what?  We DO.  You’re in luck.  Hire us and we’ll take it from there.
  • You need a professional.  
    We have the experience, the expertise, and the passion to make your wedding incredible.  We’ll answer all of your questions, be your biggest fan, and take away the stress.  Think of us like an encyclopedia, waving one of those huge foam fingers, relaxing in a hot bath.  Can you see it now? Good.
  • You need help mostly on the day of the wedding.  
    You’ve spent months, maybe even years, planning this one day.  Now you need someone to make it come to life.  Have fun getting ready with your pals, marrying the love of your life, and celebrating.  We’ll handle the rest.

Like I said, not every couple needs us.  But, you’re not one of those couples, are you?  We thought so.  Let’s do this!
