Please take a moment to read this before hiring Wishes!
How long have you been doing what you do and how did you become a wedding planner?
I was introduced to the world of events ten years ago when I landed a job servicing social groups at a local hotel. My next stop was coordinating sales meetings and large tradeshows for a manufacturing company. After receiving a certificate in conference planning I was hired to assistant in the planning of large retreats and conferences for a Seattle based law firm. It was after planning my own wedding I learned I absolutely love working with linens, flowers and all the intricate details that make a wedding distinctive. I love people. I love making them happy. I love working hard to fulfill their visions and dreams of their perfect day. I love designing unique and beautiful weddings that reflect my couple’s personal style. It makes my job very rewarding and puts a smile on my face every day. My goal was to create a team of wedding professionals who share my true desire and commitment to work with couples and design extraordinary and unique weddings. We as a team believe in flawless execution, exceeding expectations and remaining affordable…every time. Our heart and soul goes into each and every wedding.
We love your wedding planning services and gallery, and your packages sound great. So, can you tell us what really sets you apart from all the other wedding planners out there?
Wishes! is a full-service, full-time wedding planning firm, based in Seattle, Washington, serving the world. We will respond to your questions and concerns in a timely manner. We will always get back to you and you are always a priority for us because we only work with a limited number of couples per year.
We will provide answers to your many questions and become your trusted advisor. We will develop a close relationship and give you a sense of comfort, trust and confidence in us. Having this connection allows you to express your needs and opinions openly and honestly and makes the planning experience an enjoyable and effortless one. We want you to feel comfortable and to always be able to laugh out loud with us. We will ensure you have a great experience.
We will match vendors to your wedding planning needs, loves and personality. We will properly match you to the right vendors. We always take time and sincere thought in matching you to each and every vendor who compliments your needs.
Our weddings are also extremely unique. You will receive a wedding that is customized to you and not just what I love. It’s not about me, it’s about you. I’m not like other wedding planners who are trying to recreate their own wedding.
My clients will tell you that working with me means that you’ll not only get straight-forward, impartial feedback from me, but you’ll also get someone who is here for you emotionally and more. We all need support, love and feedback, and I am all that and more for my brides and their families. I love each and every one of my clients, and you will always know that.
This all sounds so great. But, it also seems expensive. Are we going to be able to afford all this?
Did you know it takes the average bride over 400 hours to plan her wedding? That’s TEN 40-hour work weeks. Who has time for that? But it’s not just about that. I’ve had so many clients tell me how much they’ve saved in time, money and energy working with us. I’d love to schedule a complimentary consultation with you so that we can really talk about your dreams and how we can create them together.
Will I lose control of my own wedding if you are planning it for me?
No, of course not. A bad wedding planner is one who takes control away from you. That is not the point of wedding planning. The point is being an extension of who you are and of your creativity. You are the focus of your wedding and it’s totally your day. I’m just here to help you fully explore your potential and realize your dreams in ways that you never even realized!
You will never, ever lose control. It is YOUR day. Period.
Will you work with the vendors I’ve already found or people I really want to work with?
Of course we will work with your fabulous vendors. It is not necessary for you to only work with people we’ve planned with in the past; however, we do have amazing vendors at our fingertips that we can easily match to your needs.+
Do you take credit cards?
Yes. We happily accept all major credit cards.
Do you take more than one wedding per day?
No, I do not. I can only focus on one wedding per day. No more.
This sounds like everything we’ve been looking for. What happens next to start the wedding planning process?
Fabulous! The next step is for you to call me at 206-802-5904 or you can email me to set up a complimentary consultation. I want to hear about your vision for your dream wedding day and what you’d love to see your day be like.
I’ll be happy to take you through our levels of service to see which one makes the most sense for you, show you more from our portfolio, and describe our process in more detail.
May we contact some of your former clients to see what it’s like to work with you?
Yes, absolutely! Our clients have become raving fans of our wedding planning services and love to speak to other potential clients about their experience with Wishes!. You can also look at our client testimonials here now.
We have a couple more questions before getting started…can I call you to discuss this further?
Yes. Every single wedding we plan and design is distinctive, unique and is customized completely to the couple. Please feel free to call me with any questions or ideas you may have at 206-802-5904 or you can email me to discuss your event.
I can’t wait to meet you. Congratulations on your engagement.
