I wanted to plan the wedding myself, but wanted some up front guidance on vendors, creative ideas, etc. Stephanie was great. She met with me several times, helped me visualize the ceremony and reception, and then sent me the perfect list of vendors to use.
She had some great ideas for the kids' table (candy centerpieces, crayons, snacks) and for adult centerpieces. They prompted me to come up with my own idea of floating candles in punch bowls on some of the tables, with flowers around them.
She helped me put together a schedule for the wedding day, so I can give it to my best friend so she can help keep everything on track.
I loved that Stephanie was so experienced and so flexible. She gave me exactly the help I needed. She was always happy to answer the silliest questions and kept checking to make sure I was doing okay.

How did wedding planner make your day special? Stephanie did everything that was necessary to make my wedding day a success. She even went so far as surprising us with champagne flutes which we didn't expect to have (we were just going to use wine glasses). There's not enough space here to write everything, so I'll just say that with her, I didn't have to worry about anything. That's what made my day special.
Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? She suggested a kid's table, and she set it up and decorated it for us. Everything related to the kid's table, she did on her own and it was a big hit. Our wedding was a little out of the way so she suggested street signs to direct the guests, and then she actually went and got the signs and put them up. And of course she told me to relax and not to worry about anything.
How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? Simple - she took care of everything.
Value of a wedding planner? For us, she was invaluable.
How did wedding planner make your day special? Stephanie's experience allowed her to be on top of things that I would never have thought of. From the simplest detail such as vanity baskets for the guests to have a chance to freshen up to setting up a gorgeous fruit and cheese display to allow our guests to be able to snack while we took all of the pictures we wanted. The small detail that she did that REALLY accented my reception was a total selfless act on her part. She went in the cold to gather small tree branches, painted them white and strung white lights from them and just had them placed elegantly around the perimeter. I cost me nothing but it really made an impact on the ambience of the reception!
Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? Her wisdom and experience came across in every aspect of the planning phases. I think I was most impressed that she wanted to go with us to see our church and you could just see the wheels turning in her head to make the event stay in line with our theme and that was simple and elegant.
How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? This was a second marriage for me so I don't think I was a Bridezilla but she made a very detailed planning list and then a detailed wedding event order that once I saw that and how concise everything was, I never worried again about who does what and when it was supposed to be completed. She completely took the worry from me.
Value of a wedding planner? Anyone who thinks you can do your own wedding...probably can pull it off. However, if you want to create something that is more than just vows and a reception, the planner has the ability to put your dreams into reality. Stephanie could almost read our minds on what we wanted it to look like and my reception was Simple but VERY elegant!
