We sometimes hear people ask, “Why hire a wedding planner – what do they actually do?” This question is valid, especially with the wealth of information available to brides online and friends and family members generously offering their hands in the planning process. However, the role of wedding planners and coordinators are often behind the scenes, leaving our visibility and value under the radar. Here are a few reasons we (and our friends) believe Waverly Road Events’ services are hugely valuable on your big day:
1) Your life doesn’t stop when you’re planning your wedding. Waverly Road Events can take the most simple idea you have and turn it into something unique, while you focus on the bigger picture. We are experienced at working with large groups of vendors to make sure every piece is in styled cohesion.
2) We act as impartial confidantes, maximizing your time and money. We get it – weddings can be a stressful time. Waverly Road Events prides ourselves on our personal and responsive service for all of our clients. We are here to answer your questions, check in often and provide realistic suggestions.
3) We’re the first in and the last out on your wedding day. You will spend hours perfecting the theme and personalized elements of your event. It’s quite a scary concept to leave that on the day of to someone who is unfamiliar with your vision. Along the way we develop close relationships with our clients and really do care about the small details as much as they do!
Kim of Waverly Road Events made sure our big day was as special as we imagined. We were extremely lucky to have worked with someone that was so professional, organized, thorough and pleasant. We weren’t sure we needed a ‘day of’ coordinator in the earlier stages of our planning, but were thanking our lucky stars that we decided to have one. I would recommend Kim for not only weddings, but any large event. Thanks Kim!

My wife and I have hosted two weddings here in Gettysburg, but they were smaller affairs than our third daughter was envisioning in Baltimore. We were fortunate to connect with Kim at Waverly Road Events, and there was nothing in the experience that wasn’t a positive. From the rehearsal, (relaxed and informative), to gently herding the various bridesmaids, ushers, flower girls, and parents in our ceremonial duties, and then somehow gathering us for pictures when all anyone wanted to do was party……and she did it all in such a no pressure, “behind the scenes” sort of way! Kim, if you read this…Many, many thanks!!
