Q: How long have you been a wedding planner?

A: I started my business in 2006, originally called Frit Fru Weddings.


Q: Are you a certified wedding planner?

A: Yes, I am certified through the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada.


Q: Do you limit the amount of phone calls or emails with your packages?

A: No, although some wedding planners do, that’s just not my style. We do whatever it takes to plan your perfect day.


Q: Do you take on a limited amount of weddings per year?

A: Yes, we find this is the best way to ensure our clients get our full attention.


Q: Do you book yourself for more than one wedding on the same day?

A: No, that’s just crazy talk!


Q: Do you work alone?

A: I wish I could take all the credit, but I have amazing assistants who help me every step of the way, as well as on the day.


Q: How do your DIY rentals work?

A: You pick everything up the Thursday or Friday before and drop it back the Sunday or Monday afterwards.


Q: What’s your favourite wedding moment?

A: Hmmm that’s a tough one! Probably the final moments before the ceremony as I fluff the brides dress, hand her a gorgeous bouquet, open the doors, and the groom sees her for the first time. Heart. Stopping.


Q: Is your hair naturally curly?

A: Yes (Seriously, I get asked this a lot! And for all you girls out there with straight hair, the grass is always greener my friend.)


Q: How do we get started?

A: Send us an email, and we set up a time to chat, yes it’s that easy!
