You were asked, and you said “YES!”. After all the shock and excitement has worn off, it dawns on you… “Now what?” Time to plan your wedding!

Planning a wedding isn’t easy because it involves a list of endless details, deadlines, the drama between both sides of the family, which leads to stress. If you’re not mentally prepared for it, you may just want to elope. Entering into the planning phase of your wedding requires open-mindedness and versatility. You may have it all mapped out in your mind but not keeping your plans adjustable will leave you frustrated and discouraged. A checklist is a must and budgeting is also vital, and looking into getting a wedding planner to help you pull it off may be the most important move you make.

Would you like to know what the benefits of hiring a wedding planner are? You may be astonished to know what all the incredible advantages of hiring a wedding planner are. Wedding planners believe it is crucial for couples to relish in their engagement but also be stress-free and relaxed on their wedding day. Wouldn’t you want that too?

Let’s take a look at some benefits of getting a wedding planner:

1. Wedding Planners are stress relievers!

Planners create a seamless planning process for you! Weddings are incredibly complex, and they are so highly detailed. Wedding Planning is equivalent to a full-time job when done right; that is why there are wedding planners to take the weight off your shoulders. I am sure you have many other things to take care of and meetings to attend. Every bride deserves to relax.

2. Planners: Experts in the industry

They know all the rules and regulations for weddings. A planner will make sure you are making all the right moves while making the best of your wedding budget.

The only thing better than a wedding planner saving you cash is one that saves you time. Planners can line up viewings, and rehearsals in no time and all you’ll need to do is be there and make the choices. Wedding planners can also help you to make hard decisions or suggest colors and themes when it’s hard to choose what fits you. Their game is weddings, and their purpose is to make your day the best it can be.

A wedding planner understands the problems you face and makes wedding planning a fun and delightful event.

DIY Intimate Wedding | Propeller Coffee | Sonya & Isac

December 18, 2016

Let me start by saying – Oh these guys! I don’t know if I can love them more! Sonya and Isac are so fun to be around! I met Sonya a year before, heavily pregnant – I believe just few weeks before my 2nd baby came. When Sonya described her vision of their wedding, I was already super stoked! They own a custom engraved leather and suede Etsy shop called Grain Deep. I knew the wedding will be filled with some awesome DIY elements and I was right!

Their love story, their first date began at Royal York subway, so what is more fitting that doing their first look here! This picture truly makes my heart burst with joy! Thank you to MK Photographics for sharing these pictures with me!


Their diy intimate wedding was held at a coffee shop Propeller Coffee in Toronto. This little café is such a wonderful and unique space to have a wedding! It totally fit their both their personalities! All the wedding flowers created by The Rose Mint screamed Sonya and Isac too – the colours were fun, bright, and just happy! Like them! With their talents, they created a beautiful backdrop for their ceremony. They made these wooden engraved coasters as wedding favours which also serves as place cards. Laser etched table numbers, and wooden welcome sign, seating chart and menus.

When it comes to food – they had food catered from Barque BBQ. I mean bbq food for dinner, I’ll take it! And pop corn on each table instead of bread, SO fun! To top it off, for dessert instead of a traditional wedding cake, they had these amazing Portugese Tarts and donuts from Sanremo Bakery. !

And lastly, nothing beats good music to top off a great party! I have to admit, I totally dig their wedding playlist from first dance song (Adam Sandler Grow Old With You) to their open up the dance floor music – I was dancing along all night! But that was exactly their wedding – small, intimate and a heck of a good party!
