7 Benefits of a Phillips Fairy Tale Planner
We'll take responsibilities off your plate.
Wedding-related tasks are sure to eat up a great deal of free time. Between your full-time job and social commitments, you might already feel like you don't have an extra minute to spare. Hiring a Phillips wedding planner allows you to hand off those more time-consuming responsibilities to a professional. We schedule appointments, deal with vendors, and work through the nitty-gritty issues of your day.
We'll assist with budgeting and scheduling.
Most couples have a strict wedding budget and timeline they need to adhere to. We will be able to help you get the most for your money by crunching numbers and scoring discounts, getting you the best deals. Plus, we'll keep you on schedule, ensuring you cross every to-do off your list in a timely manner.
We have tons of insider knowledge.
We'll regularly communicate with florists, caterers, DJs, stationery designers, hair stylists, and photographers. We'll also recommend the best vendors for your particular celebration, meaning you don't need to spend hours sifting through Google search results. What's more, we can potentially negotiate deals you wouldn't otherwise receive since we have ongoing relationships with local vendors.

Whether you want a unique centerpiece or memorable dessert spread, we'll brainstorm something that will knock your socks off.
We'll offer advice on tricky situations.
What are you supposed to do now that your mom and mother-in-law disagree about bridal shower details? How much should you ask your bridesmaids to pay for their dresses?
