Weddings, Inc is a full-service wedding and event planning business. It is run by Chandra Demers and Kara LaPres. These two have a knack for producing top-notch events and I highly recommend them as wedding planners.
Demers is a wedding photographer so she brings an inside knowledge of weddings to the business. She's seen the ups and downs and also witnessed the difference between brides who have a wedding planner and can sit back and enjoy the day, and brides who don't have a wedding planner and end up stressing over every detail.
I recently spoke with Demers about hiring a wedding planner and she made an excellent point about justifying the cost of a wedding planner. She told me: "You’re gonna spend all of this money on a wedding. You’re going to spend $2000 on a band that’s going to be there for 3 hours. Why not spend a little bit on someone that’s going to be there for 8 months and help you through everything?
She also pointed out that in the long run wedding planners often pay for themselves via the money they are able to save brides and grooms. Because they deal in the industry every day they know the best places to go for nicer invitations at a lower price or they know which florists run specials at certain times of the year.
The services they provide include everything from helping pick the wedding date and location to selecting vendors such as caterers, florists, photographers as well as details like sending invitations, decorating for the reception and general shuttling of guests. They also provide brides and grooms with their own personalized website which allows family and guests to find all the information they need (including wedding reception locations, gift registries, local hotels, restaurants and attractions and more)
I have witnessed these two in action and I can guarantee you that they won't miss a detail. Enjoy your wedding day and leave the details to Weddings, Inc.
