"Contrary to what I was told when I first got into the business, Type-A clients work well with planners; in fact, I think they make us better planners."

Hi Leslie. Nice blog. Do you really like dark blue? My blog seems to be more girly, it's pink. Haha. Anyway, thanks for the pros and cons article. I went to the link you have posted and I think that hiring a wedding planner can be really costly at times. However, what I really like about having a wedding coordinator is that they fix things for you, handle arrangements, and you don't have to worry about the whole process since they'll be there to guide you. Check this one out, it's a great piece written by One Heart Wedding, they talk about how big of a help planners can be.. (

Hi Ariette,

I do. I also love green - peacock colors.
My entire house is decorated in those colors.

A wedding planner's fee should be a part of the budget, not in addition to the budget,
and frankly, we're your best wedding investment.
I only wish more people understood that.

I will check out the One Wed article you shared.

Thank you! Leslie
