cupcakes or coffee?

If you are thinking about hiring Bliss Events but haven’t taken that first step to schedule your consultation…wait, why haven’t you scheduled your consultation??

First of all…It’s free. Completely free, no obligation, just 100% fun to meet you and hear your big ideas for the wedding day.

Second of all…it’s cupcakes. Or coffee- your choice. And on me.

And finally, it’s just the best. THE BEST!!

Here’s what you can expect: I will arrive probably way too early because I am psyched to meet you and your VIP. I will have my computer out and my online planning tool up and ready to go when you arrive. As you tell me a little about your story and your ideas for your wedding, I will be typing away as I listen so I don’t miss a thing.

Next, I’ll talk about all of the things I can offer you…things like our online planning tool, a vendor recommendation sheet for your vision and budget, scheduling vendor visits, being available for unlimited emails and text messages, and helping you create a perfect timeline for your day.

You’ll be so pumped. And we will ride off into the sunset.

But first, schedule the consultation already.

thank you

Seriously, I am blown away.

Bliss Events was born out of an earnestĀ desire to give a man and a woman the best possible beginning to their new life together. I wanted to help overwhelmed brides pull together an amazing day without completely breaking the bank and losing sanity in the process. I wanted to create a business that could help other women like me have an opportunity to help support their families.

I’m also just a homemaker. Raising babies. Working on my marriage to the very best best friend I could have. I am OVERWHELMED by the response of people in my community who are helping me help others make their dreams come true.

My first wedding season is full! I can’t believe I can say that out loud šŸ™‚

While I am sorry to say I will not get to work with any additional brides in 2016, I want to give a huge SHOUT OUT to the beautiful women I do get to work with. If you’ve got a Big Day happening in 2017, please reserve your date as soon as possible. I soooooo want to meet more amazing ladies. Plus, I’m offering a special gift to those who reserve their date before the end of 2016.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

P.S. As a result of theĀ extremely positive support, I’m happy to say that Bliss Events is growing! Make sure we’re friends on Facebook so you don’t miss out on exciting news about growing our team (!!!), expanding our services, and….well, I don’t want to give it all away šŸ˜‰

Bliss Events Referral Program

At Bliss Events, we believe every bride deserves the luxury of a personal assistant on the most important day of her life. In fact, we are committed to making that happen.

OurĀ pricing structure is super-simple and affordable for brides on any budget (A flat 10%, easy peasy), but we get that brides are on reeeeeaaaalllly tight budgets. We wanted to offer a way to maximize your dollar furtherĀ and help us out in the process. Enter, the Referral Program.

Business in the bridal industry is built on referrals. After all, we don’t want any repeat customers! While we are happy to help coordinate your baby showers, birthday parties, and ten-year anniversary, we certainly hope you only walk down that aisle wearing white once.

But, please tell your friends šŸ™‚

WeĀ are graciously thankful to our happy clients who share good news. For every couple who books our services under your name before your wedding date, we’ll give you a 10% discount, up to ten people. For those of you who can do math (and who have 10 people in your life who are getting married!!), that means you will pay $0 for services rendered. What?!?

If someone books after the date of your wedding or above the cost of service for your wedding, we’ll be so happy to treat you and your beloved to a yummy dinner on us. Because you are awesome.
