ARE YOU READY TO TALK WITH ENGAGED COUPLES? I am offering 50% OFF my proposal creation course. Use coupon code PROPOSAL. I hosted a webinar last month which focused on how to make connections with potential couples and make them convinced about hiring you as their planner from the first call. One of the key points that resonated with a lot of planners in attendance was the importance of having a proposal that represents your brand and clearly articulates your services to an interested client.

Should I Bother? -Webinar Q&A


I get this question so often from emerging wedding planners and I can totally relate.

Believe it or not, a lot of people who want to start out as planners feel the exact same way. In your heart, you really want to do this, but your mind is saying, “no, there are so many other people who do it so well so why bother?” I get it, but before you rule yourself out, come with me on this journey.

Close your eyes with me for a second and think about the major restaurants in your area (you can open now so you can keep reading lol). For my area DC, Maryland, and Virginia there are a lot of fast-food restaurants like McDonald's, Burger King,...
