Congratulations on your engagement – now is when the fun planning can begin!  Here at WeddingRule, we know that many couples would like to take an active role in planning their perfect wedding, and this can be an excellent way of stretching your budget.

However, don’t discount a wedding planner’s professional services, especially for crucial tasks like timeline management and budgeting. Hiring a wedding planner for month-of or day-of coordination will also ensure that you get to enjoy your special day from start to finish.

Elizabeth Gopal’s favorite moment of any wedding that she helps create is when she sends the bride down the aisle. At that moment, all eyes are on the happy couple, and one can’t help but smile. East Made Co. takes its inspiration from Elizabeth’s worldly travels and has a particular fondness for Parisian architecture and Scandinavian design. Their elegant weddings are filled with innovative styling and bespoke details that add meaning and personality to your day. Services include full or partial wedding planning, as well as the option for assistance with design and styling if your venue already has most of the vendors chosen. Day or month-of coordination and management services are also available.

Briana Dixon started Nouvelle Weddings in 2009 as she found her creative eye and logistic expertise were perfectly suited to wedding planning and coordination. Briana and her team know that a wedding planner needs to be so much more than a logistical wizard (though they are); they need to be a thoughtful negotiator, a budget stretcher, and a friend that you can confide in. They will be there at every turn to guide you through the process so that you can ensure no detail goes amiss. Design and coordination service packages can be tailor-made to your requirements, or you can go for one of their available packaged service options.
