Anyone who’s ever planned a wedding knows it can get a bit stressful. From choosing the venue to flowers to food…you’re sure to lose sight of what it’s all about if you can’t keep things organized. But that is what a wedding planner or consultant is here for. To help alleviate that stress and take things down a touch. Today, we have Angela Byrd Reed from The Blessed Bride, LLC. She will be giving her insight on choosing a wedding planner, the services she offers and the trends she sees in wedding planning. Read on below 🙂
o The inspiration behind The Blessed Bride© (TBB) came to me during my own engagement season. I coined the phrase for myself during that time! I truly feel that the Lord led me into this venture. Regarding my background, for many years prior to my engagement, I have planned events, small and large; from weddings and showers to reunions and concerts. I would also have to take into account my years of being in the wedding industry as a flower girl, junior bridesmaid, and bridesmaid! I’m certain that I have Katherine Heigl’s character beat in “27 Dresses!”
o TBB offers full-service wedding planning and coordination services. In addition, we specialize in proposal planning, engagement events, as well as anniversary celebrations. We value building relationships with our clients. From the moment a gentleman is ready to propose through the couple’s first anniversary; we want to make those moments special and tailored specifically to the couple! I am truly blessed to have my husband, Patrick, serve as the director for The Gentleman Groom. The Gentleman Groom division of TBB offers advice and preparation to guys planning to propose.
o I really enjoyed working with couples who are completely in love and want to visually express that love on their wedding day! I love getting input from not just the bride, but the groom (if willing!) as well. Couples who are fun-loving and can simply enjoy the natural flow of things — these types of brides and grooms make all the prep and planning worthwhile!
o One misconception that brides have about using a wedding planner is that many believe it’s a task that anyone can handle. This is definitely not true! An effective planner must have not only the talent, but professionalism to communicate with various vendors, time management skills to keep things moving along in a timely fashion, and an overall passion for the business! I love LOVE! Planning and witnessing the union of two people in love is pure happiness for me.
o Yes! The Blessed Bride is available for weddings outside of Georgia, in addition to destination weddings.
