Charleston Wedding Planner

Wedding Planners

Did you know that hiring a wedding planner can be a huge help and save you money? The planner will provide assistance with searching for the perfect venue and find great vendors that will fit within your planning budget. We have relationships with vendors and will often be able to introduce you to professionals that you could not find on your own. Due to these relationships, we can get a discounted price that we can pass onto you!  The wedding planner generally steps you through every process ranging from invitations, bridal gowns, tuxedo rentals to guest accommodations, welcome gifts, and total design of the event. Average time spent on planning a wedding is 200+ hours. (Thinking a friend or a relative can be your planner? Read this first.) Price $2000.

Initial and ongoing assistance through the wedding day

CAS_2123What can we say…Penny was PHENOMINAL!!! My husband and I had Penny take care of EVERYTHING regarding our wedding and she exceeded all of our expectations. We were able to enjoy our day and not worry about a thing. The venue looked like a fairy-tale and Penny made sure that every detail was taken care of on the wedding day. We can not express how GRATEFUL we are to Penny for making sure our day was everything we ever dreamed of. Thank you Penny!!
