Why do couples love working with you?
Couples love working with EWD because of the EXPERIENCE. We truly believe you should enjoy the moments from saying “I do” up to your last dance at the reception. Our processes were created with this in mind, making the planning experience a fun, memorable experience that builds anticipation up to the wedding day, eliminating the stress and anxiety often associated with wedding planning!
What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
LOVE! Really, weddings are all about love and whether it’s the bride, groom, or mother of the bride….everyone is excited and happy! I love interacting with all of our clients and am rewarded by the look of relaxation and genuine happiness on their wedding day.
How did you get started?
It was destined to happen. My A type personality plus a love for planning all things social made me an easy target for friends and family to request I plan their birthday party, housewarming, bachelorette party, etc. I even planned my families very first family reunion in 2000. It was planning my first wedding in 2005 that pulled me all in. That was when I fell in love with all things WEDDINGS. It was at that point I decided to make it a career. I enrolled in wedding planning classes immediately and began my dream career. Enchanted Weddings by Design was birthed on April 1, 2015.
What budget range do you cater to?
It is difficult to pinpoint an exact amount. When looking at a clients’ budget, we have to consider more than the overall dollars. Guest count and spend per guest are important components. Our ideal couple is looking to spend approximately $200/guest which would equal a total budget of $30,000 for a guest count of 150 people.
What typically happens at the beginning of the process when someone contacts you?
Our processes are very streamlined. Potential clients have the option of sending us a note with questions or scheduling a complimentary consultation directly from our website. The consultation is for 1 hour and can occur via Skype or in person.
Kudos to Yolanda and the team of Enchanted Weddings by Design for delivering an u forgettable day and experience as promised! Everything was perfect and I recommend you to anyone I know getting married. You rock.
Yolanda with Enchanted Weddings was a blessing. I with their help planned my wedding in 60 days. Yolanda assisted with permits required by the county, cake tasting, venue set up and break down. You name it she does it. The most important part she provided was security! She took the worry away from me and my family and allowed us to enjoy ourselves. From coordinating with the catering service to keeping the bride calm thru the day. She is the bomb.Com and my husband and I praise her daily.
“I was worried about the logistics of my outdoor wedding. We rented everything from tents to Silverware. From the beginning Yolanda assured me all I needed was to communicate my dream and she and her team would handle the res . That is exactly what she did and I am forever grateful. She made my day!”
