Final Planning Meetings


I have had two Final Planning Meetings in the past week and in each meeting the Bride felt that they were very organized going into the meeting but then at the end felt totally unprepared and a little overwhelmed. So this prompted this PSA.

The purpose of a Final Planning Meeting is to look at all the elements of your wedding, this includes items like venue, the menu and vendors. We’ll also discuss other details like ceremony processional, flower placement, table linens, etc. Overall, just make sure that you and I are on the same page. This meeting is so important because when wedding day arrives, I am an extension of you, handling all the details you loved and wanted – just the way you wanted them. You and FI can relax and just enjoy the day knowing I’m working for you to help create a fantastic day you’ll always cherish.

Things to remember to bring with you (this is not a complete list but a few of the bigger items we’ll discuss) – all of your vendor contracts, pictures of your wedding inspirations – to refresh my memory if I don’t have copies of them, copies of your ceremony order, copies of your readings, etc.

So after the final meeting and you’ve got a to do list the size of Texas, relax and know we’ll get it all done and know my team and I have it all under control!

What a great day!


I’m having such a great day today…let’s take a look at why.

1. The blog is up and running – which you knew that because you’re reading it now.

2. I received the newest Columbus Bride magazine and one of my couples from last year – Aerik and Lindsey Williams was featured. Congrats Aerik and Lindsey! I also received a little credit in their feature. Yay me! This was my first time to be published.

3. I did a walk through of the space that we’re doing my photo shoot in next week with Amy from C Studios. It’s a fantastic loft space that is modern but comfy. It’s going to be great!

4. We have a Columbus Bridal Consultants meeting tonight. I love attending these. I get to hang out with the other planners in the city and just have fun. Emilie from Emilie Duncan Event Planning is giving a presentation abut plagiarism and ethics. We have a small problem with new wedding planners in the city coping website content and partaking in some unethical advertising methods.

5. I also surprised my wonderful hubby at the office today (Meyers & Associates). Since I was in the neighborhood this afternoon I dropped by to say “Hi”. He just completed the firm’s office building and it’s so FABULOUS he did a great job and I’m so proud of him. I’ll have to get some pictures to post so everyone can see.

What a day and it’s only half over!
