Why Hiring Mrs. Hancock's Is Imperative

How many people can you imagine would throw a possible formal and sit down party for over 70 people or more and not hire help? Exactly. We're happy to provide the help you need. For example; you may think you love that 'perfect' venue, but is it really perfect for you, your vision and most importantly, your budget? We know all the questions to ask and will help guide you in areas we know you haven't thought of. As professional wedding planners we know the walls Brides and Grooms can hit due to the emotion involved. We're objective, know the market and we will save you money. Your savings should, in a lot of cases, cover our fee!

While you may not need someone to assist with the menu or your dress or color choices or any number of your dream desires for your wedding day, we strongly advise hiring us to assist you for the months prior and the Day-Of... or consider using us for Full Service; we are here to assist and as much or little as you like.

We would love to educate you as to why we believe every Bride and Groom should have and need a Planner|Coordinator; our initial consultations are gratis! Need more information now? Please keep reading...

What does Full Service mean?

Full service means just that. We refer venues, vendors and visions that will fit your budget. We're with you every step of the way in every regard. From appointments, dress shopping, contract review, menu planning, color palettes, choosing decor and more. We'll build your time line, help with invitation design and of course, run the whole day. We'll help with follow-up phone calls and we do all the organizing, so that on your wedding day, you will have at least 2, to as many as 5 people to assure and maintain the day's proper flow; and to be sure you and your groom really enjoy your day. From the moment you wake up until you leave that evening for your Honeymoon Suite; we're there for you and your Family.

What does Day-Of Service encompass?

We'll help finalize your contracts and your desires for placement and decoration; build the time line for your wedding day and so much more. We refer top notch and value laden event professionals if you'd like and get all the answers to all the little items that may seem small, but indeed will make your day remarkable for all the right reasons. Depending upon the size of your wedding, you'll have at least 2 coordinators and we keep everyone on schedule throughout the day's events!

It sounds easy doesn't it?

Certainly seems like something you can handle? It very well may be, but if you want people running up to you, tugging at you the whole day long asking:

  • "What time will the limo be here?"
  • "Aunt Jo and Uncle Charles from NYC are lost; how do they get here?"
  • "Little Eric, where's the ring pillow?"
  • "When are we supposed to line up?"
  • "The photographer says He never received your check..."
  • "Where's Tiffany; your Mom; your Cousin Ilene, the Catering Manager?"
  • "What time are you going to throw the bouquet?"
  • "Are you ready to cut the cake now?"
  • "Should we ask Earl (who drank too much and is disrupting guests) to leave?"
  • "Where are our cards/gifts?"

...and more; then by all means, manage your wedding day yourself. But we'd prefer you leave all those details to us and our talented staff members. It's a once-in-a-lifetime event - don't have your day ruined by trying to manage it.

So, if you'd like to be kept out of this mix, free to spend time with your attendants, your guests, your new husband, then please reconsider. Even if you're the "Anti-Bride", there are still lots of things you'll really want help with... speak with any past Bride who didn't invest in a coordinator and they'll tell you that was the one piece missing for their day!

If you've got a high powered, stressful job then you really will need our help. Trust us! Some of our past Brides are uber-busy and they're so glad they hired us. We'll afford you contact phone numbers and e-mails if you'd like to speak with our past clients!

In closing, we will be sure everything runs smoothly, that you are insulated from the stress that transpires on your Wedding day; when it's all about you, not about everyone and everything else.

You will find Mrs. Hancock's Wedding Planners and Consultants, kind, professional, knowledgeable, helpful and excited to be of service and we won't break your budget either! Read some of our blog posts and visit our site often!
