I met Michelle Loretta at Eventology in Indianapolis, Indiana this past April. She writes a very insightful blog called Sage Wedding Pros and is a wise wedding-biz woman. She also offers workshops for wedding business professionals on business plan writing, small business advice and advertising tips for the entrepreneur. She is one of those "smart cookie" woman entrepreneurs and I religiously read her great blog.
Here’s some advice from a groom – hire Ali. When Chaoran brought up the idea of using a wedding planner my first reaction was “why pay someone to do that?”. Well the answer is we could not have done it without her, deciding to work with Ali was easily the best decision we made. She was able to free up our time while still giving us complete control over our wedding. From the beginning she listened to what we wanted, handled the vendors and guided us through the whole planning process. Ali took care of all the details and worked with us to create a wonderful ceremony and reception. If you want to have a perfect wedding then the place to start is with a phone call to Ali.
