 Before you rush to book a venue and that band you saw play at your sister’s friend’s wedding, pause and hire a wedding planner. Selecting a wedding planner should be your very first order of business for several reasons…

Peace of mind. A full service wedding planner does more than create timelines and coordinate with vendors. An experienced planner will help you navigate through the entire planning process and will take on nearly all of the wedding planning responsibilities. The relationship you build with your wedding consultant will be a partnership designed to relieve you of stress while ensuring your big day is exactly as you have imagined. Your planner will advocate on your behalf and any interaction she/he has with others will be a reflection of you.

Budget management. Everyone has a budget. Spending it wisely on things that will make your wedding uniquely wonderful is crucial. If dancing the night away to an amazing band is your number one priority but you book a venue that consumes 75% of your budget, you will likely have to redesign the overall wedding experience, putting you in an undesirable situation. Before you put down any deposits, your wedding planner will work with you to create a customized line item budget based on your priorities, and industry standards, so that you do not end up sacrificing what is most important to you.

Vendor selection. Hiring vendors to provide services at your wedding is not something that should be done in haste or without guidance. Additionally, you should not set out to hire the least expensive person in the industry. Remember that you are investing in an experience. The primary objective should be to identify vendors who are within your budget, align with your personality and style, and will get the job done. Your wedding planner will make recommendations based on previous experience and knowledge of professionals in the industry. Recommendations are never made because a planner will receive a ‘kick back’. Professional planners abide by a strong code of ethics and are solely focused on what is in your best interest.

So you’ve hired a planner, now what? Enjoy every moment of this new adventure!

Planning my daughter’s first birthday party was almost as much fun as my own wedding.

hot air balloon birthday party

My sister and I started We Tie The Knots because of our passion for throwing really amazing parties. We like to thank our Mom for setting the bar high on our over the top childhood birthday parties, so now we get to spoil our little ones.

I was inspired to design Willow’s first birthday party around the theme of “Up Up and Away!”, you must take a look at these beautiful invitations and centerpieces that really tied the entire theme together.

Looking for interactive ideas for a girls first birthday party can be challenging, but I immediately fell in love when I decided to make a fake hot air balloon for the kids to have the perfect photo-op.
