December 2019  -  Why You Need A Wedding Planner

The average wedding takes hundreds of hours to plan.   A  significant amount of time is spent sourcing, meeting and negotiating with vendors.  Including reception venues, stylists, florists, caterers, musicians, photographers… and the list goes on and on. 

A wedding planner simplifies the process by managing meetings, reviewing contracts and ensuring that every vendor is fully briefed prior to the wedding.   A planner will keep track of your budget and handle all the logistics.

On the big day, the wedding planner is the director of the entire event and ensures that every vendor successfully executes their assigned task.  This includes directing your timeline and sometimes your guest,   

However, there is a misconception that wedding planners only work on big-budget weddings.  This couldn’t be further from the truth.  Most wedding planners, have a range of packages available, from partial planning, on-the-day management, venue sourcing and full planning.  Packages can be tailored to suit the requirements of the bride no matter the budget.   As for the Planners involvement, well that is entirely up to you.  

When you hire Rooted Events and Designs as your wedding planner we work  to ensure that your expectations are meet.   It is your special day and we want to make it as special and memorable as possible. 

The Ring

   January 2020  -  He popped the question! You said yes! Now what?

 Congratulations!  You are getting married!  We know how tempting it is to immediately start pinning boards, signing up for every online resource and start your planning.  If you have planned weddings and events before it can be a breeze.  

 For those of you who have only attended weddings, been a part of a wedding party (maid of honor or a bridesmaid) you will soon find out there is a bit more to do than just picking a place and shopping for a dress.   

There is a plethora of things to do and  they can seem very overwhelming.   Before you do anything, we suggest  you sit with your significant other and discuss a budget.  Couples who have a defined budget, and know that the budget, "is the budget" will not be so persuaded to go down the proverbial "rabbit hole" of  overspending.  

Here's where we can help you!  We offer couples a complimentary face to face or phone meeting to help them establish their needs and wants, while keeping to a budget.  In our meeting we discuss things like your top three most important things,  guest list, venues, catering, drinks, and the most important thing of all not over spending.  When you become husband and wife you don't wake up the next morning frustrated that you both now have a wedding to  pay for and the wedding is over!

We have seen the most elaborate weddings extravaganzas, to the most breathtaking backyard DIY weddings ever.   Here's an example below of what we are capable of, while keeping to a budget:

 Last year,  we had an opportunity to work with a couple that had lost their dream beach wedding venue to a hurricane just weeks before the big day.    We had a little over two weeks to help them relocate the wedding  location back to Atlanta.  This meant securing a venue, hiring all the vendors (caterer, photographer, DJ, florist, baker) and quickly get new invitations out to all the guest.   The couple got to do a cake tasting, meet with the florist and photographer.  The last steps were arranging  all the accommodations and transportation.  That is where we really stepped in and made it all happen.   

This all was done in under three weeks!  We have the proof on our website in testimonials and pictures.  Better yet, and  once "the dust was settled" the couple received a refund from the beach venue and saved thousands of dollars, all by allowing us to jump in and make their special day happen.  

Yes, it was unfortunate about the hurricane.  No, they did not get married on the beach.  However,  they did have a beautiful wedding that had everything (minus the beach) and more they wanted!  To this day, I still receive referrals and comments from their wedding guest about how wonderful and special the wedding was.   

I guess my point is, you have your beautiful ring, the man of your dreams, and now you are going to plan your wedding.   So remember this, to communicate about finances and the budget, hire someone to help you if you are not sure what to do, but most of all, enjoy your engagement and planning you very special day!


Thank you, Courtney and Matt, for trusting us!  We were and still are, honored to have been a part of your special day!
