1. What is unique about Always Yours Occasions?

You can relax knowing we are there to take the stress off, mentor you through the process, and keep the wedding day flowing smoothly. At Always Yours Occasions, our brides and grooms are our focus, so we personally stay in communication with you and your wedding vendors so we all work as a team to create the special day you have envisioned.

One of our goals is to keep you within budget and to provide you with cost-saving tips that will cover your investment in us. This is most easily done when you bring us on early in the planning process.

Sometimes in planning, there is a difference of opinion or perspective between the bride and groom and their parents. Along with Kate’s degree in communications and Cheryl’s background in Family and Child Development, we also draw upon our own experience of running a business as a family to help you navigate tricky situations.

If you have a wedding with a larger guest count and many details, you can rest easy with two certified coordinators orchestrating your event. Or, you can choose to have only one if your event is more relaxed and intimate.

You have access to partnerships through our membership with the Association of Bridal Consultants and its partnership with Sandals to help you get special pricing on select hotel rooms, invitations, and Sandals’ destination weddings an honeymoons. 

Who will benefit from bringing a planner onto their wedding team?

     Planners can make a big difference regarding yours stress levels, organization, and enjoyment of your wedding day. Before we get into all the benefits, let’s talk about who might need a planner. 

  1. Couples who want a coordinator for their wedding day so they don’t have to manage the wedding while they are getting married.
  2. Couples who desire to plan the majority of their wedding and turn over preparation close to their wedding so they can be fully present on the day of their wedding.
  3. Couples who are busy or overwhelmed and want a professional to come alongside them to help plan or put it all together.

Each couple is unique so our packages are custom designed and personalized. We’ll be launching a DIY wedding mentorship in the near future for those who want advice, but don’t need a full planning package.

Why Invest In a Planner?

  1. Wedding planners can save you money. They help you establish a budget and stick to it. An added bonus is their cost saving tips can cover most or all of the investment to hire them.
  2. Planners can save you time. A professional planner helps you with designated details, freeing you to do what you love the most.
  3. Planners provide emotional and mental relief. Their expertise and experience brings peace of mind and order to the planning process removing much of the tension that otherwise could rob you and your family of the joy of the journey. Plus, you know there is a professional managing your event on the big day so you and your guests can simply enjoy.
  4. Planners support you. They impart harmony and a sense of calm. You don’t have to plan and coordinate alone. A good planner has your best interests at heart and is in your corner from start to finish.
  5. Planners allow for a better life/work/wedding balance. Planners can take on the bulk of responsibility and legwork helping alleviate stress and overwhelm.
  6. Planners usually work as a team with other wedding professionals, making your day seamless. They can connect you to vendors that are a good fit for your budget and style.
  7. Professional planners often have partnerships for special pricing on hotel blocks, honeymoons, and destination weddings. When researching planners, ask about their specific memberships with industry leaders like the Association of Bridal Consultants.
  8. Professional planners are licensed and certified to meet legal requirements for venues. This gives an added sense of security that your day is handled by coordinators who know what they are doing.
