bride.jpgHow long have you been planning weddings?

I’ve been planning weddings for about 28 years. I worked as an event planner for the Hecht Company for several years and developed the experience and desire to pursue this as a career. Because my own wedding had been a disaster with no one to help me, I vowed that none of my sisters would end up in a situation like that. I made it my mission to make sure they each had the wedding we dreamed of as children, and that’s where the spark to plan weddings was born. I hold the designation of Professional Bridal Consultant through the Association of Bridal Consultants and have been continuing my education through the Association.

Why should I hire An Unforgettable Moment?

When I first started as a wedding consultant, I loved the phrase “one day, your way, why not” ... and I still do. This phrase can mean something different to each bridal couple, but that’s the approach we take to every wedding. When we start the planning process we want to show that we value your uniqueness, which translates into a custom wedding. This takes into account a lot of things like your visions, your taste and preferences for décor, vendors and venue selection. It is very important to us that we all work well together. And because communication is key, we’ve just added a convenient new video conferencing feature that allows us to talk online, face-to-face, in real time!

I'm worried about the expense. Can I afford a wedding planner?

The cost of a wedding planner should be a part of your budget, not an addition to it. Especially today, hiring a planner just makes sense. Weddings are complex events, and there are thousands of details, choices, purchases and decisions that need to be made. A professional planner will guide you every step of the way, act as your advocate, friend and negotiator, save you time and money, and help keep you within your budget. What a wonderful gift to give yourself! CONTACT us today for a complimentary consultation..

How many weddings do you do in a weekend?

We schedule one wedding per weekend so we’re always available when you need us most.

If I choose to have a day-of coordinator, will you be there? What if you need extra staff?

I cannot stress enough the importance of having a complimentary introductory meeting. There will be no surprises on the day of your wedding. Our fee for day-of coordination will include additional staff if it is determine that this is needed.

What if I want to participate in the planning process? Will you do everything?

Our introductory meeting will allow both sides to ask questions as we familiarize you with the wedding planning process and offer services that will benefit you. You will decide how much or how little you want to be involved. Whether you require someone to handle every detail or just need some assistance with vendor negotiations and contract review, we’re here to answer your questions and create a custom package that best suits your needs. An Unforgettable Moment offers everything from full-service wedding planning to month-of coordination and day-of management.

What if I have a favorite florist or caterer that I want to use?

No problem whatsoever. We’ll work with them and hopefully form a lasting relationship.

Do you have a payment plan?

Yes, and this is customized to you. We accept checks and credit cards. Final payment is required 30 days before your wedding.
