The Best Wedding Planners in Dallas

1. The Art of Weddings DFW

Luxury Wedding Planning with a Unique Expertise in Detail

I’ve personally had the pleasure of working with Shay McElroy from The Art of Weddings DFW for Amanda and Aaron’s Wedding at The Castle at Rockwall. When you hire her for wedding planning and coordination, you can let out a huge sigh of relief. Shay is incredibly organized with details, time, and people. From the minute you begin working with Shay to the end of the wedding day, you can just focus on having the best day of your life.

What is your philosophy for wedding planning?

We take your vision and create perfection. I treat every wedding as if it were my own or one of my children’s. I believe that every wedding must fit the uniqueness of the bride and groom with their personal details. That way no two weddings are ever the same.

Classic Elegance never goes out of style. I love additions of modern, but simple elegance is something to strive for. I also love that brides and grooms are stepping away from the old-school timed reception, meaning they want to join their cocktail hour and be more relaxed during the reception.

No two weddings are the same.  We really strive to make our clients’ weddings about the two of them, their personality, their style.  The more we can incorporate details that are specific to them the better.   Bespoke planning is probably the best way to describe our philosophy…we build piece by piece until they have a unique wedding that is unlike anyone else’s.

What do you want clients to know? 

We are with them every step of the way, and we want their wedding to be the perfect representation of what they want it to be.  We love seeing happy couples have the wedding  of their dreams and try to make the process as fun, stress-less and seamless as it can be.  Wedding planning should be a fun adventure!

The return to classic elegance. Personalizing every detail of the wedding. Non-traditional timelines. For example: Intimate dinners before dancing and the party, almost a dinner before the reception in a separate space, or couples standing up alone at the ceremony without a wedding party.

FAQ’s About Wedding Planners

Do you really need a wedding planner?

Some couples choose not to book any wedding planning services. However to truly enjoy your wedding experience to the fullest, it is highly recommended to have at least some level of wedding planning, or coordination.

How long before a wedding should you hire a wedding planner?

About 1 year prior to your wedding date is the most optimal timing to hire a wedding planner. This gives you and your planner the time it takes to book a venue, hire other vendors, find the perfect dress, etc.

How much does a wedding planner cost in Texas?

Pricing depends on the planner’s experience and level of service. For full-service wedding planning, you can expect to pay anywhere from $2,000 to $7,000. Other partial planning services are usually available, and can often be found under $2,000.

How much should a day-of coordinator cost?

You can expect around $500 to $800 just for day-of coordination.

Final Words

I always want my couples to enjoy their wedding experience as much as possible. Yet sometimes all the details and moving pieces of wedding planning can cause unneeded stress. This is why I always recommend hiring a great wedding planner. So hopefully this helps you get started!
