Favorite flower (to work with):
I would choose roses mainly due to its overall beauty. The secondary reason is the variation of colors and the great smell they give a room. Guest always remember what they observed, felt, heard and most importantly smelled at any event.

Why should people hire an event planner?
Hiring an event planner helps you to have a thinking partner and executionist. It does not take from your part in planning. As your special day approaches, things will become stressful and overwhelming at times. It is refreshing to know that you can call, email or meet with someone who is invested in your celebration. On the big day, you will be able to enjoy this grand moment, friends and family.
When shouldn’t they?
Having family and friends step up and take on crucial roles supporting for the duration of planning will help you through the process.
If you have people in your circle that has a specific skill set, knows a few vendors that can be gifted to you, go for it.
Self Aggrandizing Bonus question:
When planning an outdoor wedding, how often do clients comment on the challenge of wearing heels in grass?
Wearing heels, we all know is like the biggest pain. As women we want to wear our high heels with stiletto or 6 inch heels. Nature does not understand that our walking to a ceremony or reception on top of grass requires support.
Do you suggest Solemates Heel Protectors?
Absolutely, Solemate Heel Protectors are ideal. They allow you to remain comfortable, balanced while still fashionable.
