How did wedding planner make your day special?
When you say special, do you mean completely ignoring me during my entire wedding day?
Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered?
She did recommend a few vendors, but all of the decor elements and the inspiration came from me.
How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla?
She wasn't even there while I was getting ready, so I cannot answer this. She also was not there during the moments before I walked down the aisle. Can I put "Not Applicable" for this section?
Value of a wedding planner?
This is a very condensed version of my review: At the end of the day, my wedding day was perfect. It truly was the day I have always dreamed of, but I really feel like none of that is owed to Deborah Simmons. Everything was my planning and agonizing for many months with the devoted help of my mother. I was really looking forward to relaxing and enjoying the day we planned for for so long, but I still spent most of the night completely stressed out. I’m not sure if Deborah were disinterested in me and my wedding because of my smaller budget or the fact that I’m not one of her usual Jackson socialites. I really expected more from her. Thirteen percent of my already tight budget went towards hiring Signature Occasions. At this point I don’t see any benefit from this decision. This is money that could have gone towards the flowers that came out of my own pocket or we could have not spent it at all. $1,950 might not seem like a lot to you, but I know it’s a lot of money to my parents who work extremely hard and it is definitely a lot of money to me.
