We have sourced only the best northwest suppliers for your special day, saving you literally weeks of research and stress, and pass on all discounts received from each supplier directly to you.
So can you afford not to hire a wedding planner? There are many professionals hired for all elements involved in weddings, i.e. florists, caterers, stationers, chauffeurs, videographers, photographers, cake makers etc, so why not for the planning?
