Imagine If...

You knew exactly what you needed to do for your wedding, when to get it done, and how much you should be paying for everything...

A BLISSED OUT ENGAGEMENT?

Then this is for you.  Here's why!

You’ll be guided through the wedding planning process (that other people find so stressful) in a way that feels easy and fun

You'll have access to ALL of the organizational tools that I use to plan each of my flawless events

You'll have my eyes on your final event plan and timeline - I'll even brief your Day-Of Coordinator!

What’s more, you’ll get emotional support throughout The Journey to ensure you’re

  • Setting boundaries that support your relationship

  • Getting the most out of your perfect-fit suppliers

  • And actually enjoying the engagement!

"Hiring a wedding coach is one of the best and most positive decisions that my fiancé and I made this year, and we’re just so grateful for Carrie-Ann. She helped us make quick decisions, helped us really understand budgets, and how much things cost, and where we can get more value and where we can save. But then the other element is having a coach by your side when you’re experiencing all these emotions for the first time and you have no idea what they are and what they mean, and guiding you through that, like your big sister who’s there for you no matter what through everything."

I’m a wedding coach and planner, and I have over fifteen years’ experience in the wedding industry.

 

I am a firm believer that your wedding journey should be blissful. Because I’ve had the half-an-Ativan + a glass of Chardonnay to survive experience, and I want better for you!

 

Your wedding is about more than the day – which is why I want to help you starting right now. But the wedding day itself? It should be reflective of who you are as a couple – not what everyone else wants it to be.

"It was such a reassurance having Carrie-Ann's calm demeanour and incredible advice. Any interaction we had left me feeling more at ease. We’ve said it before but other than deciding to marry each other, you were the best decision we made!"

FAQs

Q. How is this different from a wedding planning book/website?

A. The short answer? It's bespoke. I'm not giving you a cookie cutter wedding guide, but rather guiding you through my strategic process. You have my expert insights and on the go coaching at all times, so you'll never have to second-guess a choice you've made. 

Q. What is wedding coaching, and how is it different from wedding planning?

A wedding planner (that's me, by the way) knows all the secrets to putting together a flawless event that lines up with your vision and your financial priorities. A wedding coach (also me) helps you navigate the emotional upsets that come with a major life change. You're not just planning a wedding day - you're planning to be married. So as soon as we start working together, I'm looking into the future and thinking not only, "How can I make sure your day is spectacular?" but also, "How can I set these two up for a future where their partnership is rock solid?"

I have a few ways of doing this, and encouraging participation from your partner throughout the process, but the main thing we'll do is: during the second call (the one about the almighty budget!) we'll also budget your time and look at which steps of the process need to be divided to be conquered (and who will do what), and which steps will be better served by a combined effort.

Q. Can my parents/in-laws join in on our Zoom calls?

A. While your fiancé is always encouraged to join in on our Zoom sessions, I strongly advise maintaining a boundary between your parents and your wedding plan. This can be really challenging, especially if they are investors in the wedding. But in my experience, this really helps to ensure that you stay true to your vision, while casually throwing me under the bus, like so: "It's not my fault! It's Carrie-Ann's rule." I sign my contract with you, so you are my clients, not your parents. And, if they are investing, I have some ideas about how we can make sure they don't weigh in on the entire experience.

Q. Who will manage my wedding on the day of the event?

A. You'll use my Day-Of Coordinator hiring guide to find the perfect person in your city. Then, they'll hop on our final call so I can make sure we're all on the same page about your wedding plan.

(And if you’re in Montreal and want me there? I’m available for onsite DOC starting at $2000. You can add on this option during our Jumpstart if desired!)
