I’m Sadie McIntyre, Certified Wedding Planner since 1999. A lot of people call themselves a wedding planner but not many have been professionally trained and experienced planning large weddings and events in Southern California and Oregon.
A wedding isn’t just one day. You’ve been planning this for months, maybe even more than a year. You’re going to have family and friends in town, a rehearsal dinner, send off events and so much more. Let yourself and your family relax and enjoy this time because you hired a professional to help you carry out all of your carefully set plans.
If you hire Vareus Events for your Month of Planning, we will set up an initial free consultation where we get to know each other and you decide if you’d like to use us. Once you’ve signed on with us we are your planners, you can email or text your planner any time for advice or referrals for details you haven’t finalized yet. About a month before your wedding we’ll get together again to confirm all of your final plans. From there we will create your wedding events timeline for vendors, bridal party, and family who will participate in your rehearsal, etc. Your weeks leading up to your wedding will be so much less stressful when you know you’re in the hands of an expert.
