If you want to create a special occasion celebration that is sure to feel....well..."special", don't wait until "things slow down" or "I have more money to work with" to get started planning. Waiting costs you opportunities to save bundles on the big items now and ends up nickel & diming you at the last minute.
If you're working with a planner who is truly in your corner, they'll help you secure a venue early on so you're not price-competing during peak times, along with some other details that can and should be handled as much as a year in advance. Then, you can relax and actually enjoy the planning process as you watch it unfold.
We know how to keep things within your budget and we know how to set up a budget plan that spreads cost out over time. So waiting until ____.....not necessary and NEVER A GOOD PLAN!
