When I am looking to invest my finances in something. I want to know that it works. I also want to know that it works for people like me. I DO NOT fancy spending money on anything that won’t provide it’s intended outcome.
For me, this involves analyzing & research. What do other people say about it (reviews), what is the personality like behind the product (this involves me going down a black hole of videos oftentimes).
I do this for anything; side hustle, hair products, subscription services, business coaching, etc.
So all this being said, my question to you is… What is a selling point for you? How do you decide to invest your money? Does it matter that people like you use the product/service?
I think it should matter. You should know it will work for you. So here are 3 questions asked by couples like you last week & my answers to them.
Did you know that most vendors have very little 2021 availability? This means that any couples or clients who seek to book them will have to do it for 2022. What this means for you, is if you wait to book your vendors, you are going to have to choose possibly between your ideal vendor or date. I highly recommend you lock in those MUST HAVE vendors ASAP.
Since your wedding is so far away this is actually beneficial to how you make payments. It will allow you to pay your deposit (securing your booking) and to have payments that you can plan for a long time in advance! If your wedding is at the end of 2022, you could potentially invest that money** in ways that will accrue interest and grow by the time final payments are due too!

A wise and well-seasoned planner once told me that there is no such thing as a hidden fee. Well, then how do I get random charges for things I didn’t know about? The answer to this is you are just not asking the right questions. How are you supposed to know the right questions to ask? Hire a planner. Here at Peace & Pine Events, we know what to ask for. We have a questionnaire that we ask vendors.
In addition to asking our questions, we also review your contracts to make sure that what you are expecting is what you get. Most of the time when looking through the images online. Venues will show you setups of furniture and other elements that are included for additional fees. By having your planner reviewing the contract. We are able to make sure what your vendors are providing is EXACTLY what you would expect.
First of all. Take some deep breaths. You are amazing. You’ve got everything within you to do this. Although, having someone by your side through this. To plan, or assist in your wedding is so important. We are here to make sure that you enjoy your engagement and wedding day. This should not be the most stressful part of your life. This should be an exciting time, where you get to plan a dream celebration with loved ones. So I would encourage you, if you are anxious or worried about planning your wedding, or planning a covid wedding, to contact us. We look forward to getting to know you and hearing about your special day. Hopefully, after that conversation, peace will follow.
Following those conversations with my couples. I was so excited to hear them breathe audibly & deeply at the end of our consultation. It only made me sad to think of how long they had been holding that breath allowing it to consume their days. Friends, I believe in you. I care deeply about you. That’s why I have structured my consultations to the care & nurturing of you and your wedding day. So please don’t hesitate to at least book your FREE consultation. I promise you. It’s 100% worth it!
