Logistics aren’t typically something people get excited about, but it’s what drew Megan Carpenter of Wed by Meg into the wedding planning business.
“I love the who goes where, when, and how they do it,” she says.
In business since 2014, Megan pairs her passion for coordination with a flair for design and an emphasis on relationships as a triple threat wedding planner. In short – she’s someone you’re going to want in your corner as you plan out your big day.
How to choose your planner
Regardless of who you ultimately choose as your wedding planner, Meg has a bit of advice for couples. Choose who you can share a bottle of wine with, not just who you’ve heard of via word of mouth.
“You are going to be spending a lot of time with your planner over the next nine to eighteen months,” she says. “Some of those moments might be a little stressful, so make sure you hire someone that you vibe with and trust!”
Why hire Wed by Meg?
Hiring Wed by Meg as a planner isn’t just a simple transaction; it’s investing in the kind of experience you want for your planning process. It gives you time to enjoy your engagement, and let someone else handle the tedious tasks like sorting table arrangements for the reception. It also frees you, and not to mention your parents, up to enjoy the big day to the fullest!
For budget-minded brides
Talking about money can sometimes be awkward, but for Megan, it’s an important first conversation to have.
“Items are going to add up quickly, so we breakdown each budget category before you book anything,” she says. “It breaks our heart when a bride has to sacrifice something important to her because she booked something else that was outside her budget.”
Another way Meg and the team save you money is through experience. Seven years in the business means they know-how to prioritize what matters.
“We know what you could do without, or even just more economical ways to do things,” says Meg. “We also know which vendors are worth their price.”
Involvement Your Way
Do you suffer from decision paralysis, and get overwhelmed with too many options? Or do you like to know every available alternative before you pull the trigger? Either way, Meg and the team cater to your style and level of involvement. They know each couple is different, so they’re happy to customize to fit your needs!
Variants of vendors
Wed by Meg does not have a list of preferred vendors for clients to select from. They look forward to working with who you select for your big day, whether that be for catering or music! They do, however, give couples advice on who to select.
Meg prides herself on the time and energy she pours into her brides. That’s why she limits the number of clients she takes on per year. Interested couples should reserve their spot with her quickly because she does fill up fast.
“We want to ensure we can give each couple the time and attention they deserve,” she says.
