Why do I need a wedding planner?

Weddings are wonderful celebrations, but planning a wedding is a lot of work, and most couples already have a lot on their plate. Wedding planners help bring the dream of your wedding to life, while keeping you on track and within budget. Our industry knowledge makes the entire process easier for you and your family so you can enjoy your engagement and wedding day without stress. Once you hire Hitched Events, you have a knowledgeable resource that will bounce around ideas with you, provide vendor recommendations, and suggest ideas to make the day run smoothly.

How long has Hitched Events been in business?

Lead event planner Kimberly Rhodes founded Hitched Events in 2011, although her adventures in event planning began more than 12 years earlier. Her career has spanned event planning for multi-chain retailers, financial institutions, private universities and other corporate behemoths in destinations like London, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Washington, D.C., New York City, and our dear Dallas-Fort Worth area. From small cocktail parties in private homes to multi-day events for thousands of attendees, she’s done a little bit of everything.

How involved is Hitched Events in the planning process?

Our full-service wedding planning is all-inclusive, meaning we can be as involved as you need or want us to be! No task is too small for us, and no question is too silly to ask. Wrangling details and brainstorming creative ideas is our happy place, and we love it when we can take on these tasks for our clients. Alternatively, we understand that you may want to plan your own wedding yourself. If that’s the case, and you’re simply looking for a month-of wedding coordinator to bring together the final details on wedding day, please consider hiring our sister company Almost To The Aisle.

Any advice on how to hire a wedding planner?

To us, a great wedding planner is someone who gives you their attention, has experience, can handle both creative and logistical tasks, and is someone you want to spend a lot of time with. We always recommend interviewing a potential wedding planner to get to know them before you start working together. In our case, we offer a complimentary consultation so you can get a feel for us and how we work before you jump into anything. We pride ourselves in forming great relationships with our clients, and just like any relationship, the chemistry has to be right.

Do you work with an assistant on the wedding day?

Absolutely! Weddings are incredibly complex events with a lot of moving parts, and since no one can be in two places at once, it’s essential that we have people we can rely on to assist. We’ll always have our team on-site come wedding day, but in some cases we may also bring additional help. But rest assured, Kimberly will be there on your wedding day — she wouldn’t dream of missing it!

Do you run the ceremony rehearsal?

Absolutely! Running your ceremony rehearsal (in conjunction with your officiant) is a standard service with our package, though our role may vary depending on your ceremony venue’s house rules.

What type of couples does Hitched Events work with?

Most Hitched Events couples live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area (or have a deep connection to DFW), and are either working professionals who simply don’t have the time to plan a wedding on their own, or have an interest in wedding planning but recognize that they don’t know much about it and understand the benefits of working with a professional.

While we love working with our couples, we also have a soft spot in our hearts for our couples’ parents. Please bring Mom or Dad to planning meetings with us!

And lastly, as people who are married ourselves and live for a sappy love story, it’s important that you know we are a truly inclusive and accepting business. We don’t care what you look like, what house of worship you attend (or don’t), and if you’re gay or straight or something else entirely…. As long as you love your partner, love Dallas, and love dogs, we’ll get along just fine!

Are there any clients who aren’t a good fit for Hitched Events?

While we like to think we can work with everyone, there are a few types of couples who aren’t a good fit for Hitched Events:

  • Couples planning a wedding outside of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Our team prefers to travel for play, not for work. If you’re hoping for a destination wedding planner who meets the Hitched standard, please do reach out — we can refer you!
  • Those shopping for a wedding planner based solely on price without respect to quality. We know we’re not the least expensive option in Big D, but our prices are absolutely in line with the level of service and experience we offer. We believe that the lowest price is quite often not the best value!
  • Couples who expect their wedding planner to nickel and dime their vendors. While we have a robust vendor network who often do offer Hitched couples generous discounts, we will never ask a wedding professional to compromise the integrity of their work or the value of their services.

I’d like to move forward. What’s the next step?

Fantastic! The next step is a complimentary phone consultation. It’s a no-cost, no-obligation way for us to get acquainted! If we’re a good match and we haven’t already filled our 10 client spots for your wedding year, we’d love to invite you on a “second date” at the Hitched Events office in Dallas. From there, we’ll put together a formal event proposal for your review. A signed contract and deposit gets you locked in on our calendar. Click here to schedule your complimentary consultation.

I have another question you didn’t address here. How can I get in touch? Darn! We’re sorry we didn’t get to your question. Please do reach out via our contact form, or by sending an email to info@hitched-events.com and we’ll get back to you ASAP.
