Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why do I need a wedding or event planner?

Planners help bring your vision to life, while keeping you on track and within budget. Once you hire ASPIRE, you gain a knowledgeable resource with endless ideas, insight into reputable vendors with negotiation efforts that may end in savings for you, and clear direction and management to make the day run smoothly. ASPIRE’s industry knowledge and experience makes the entire process easier for you and your family so you can enjoy your special day, and days leading up to it, without worry.

  • What sets apart ASPIRE from every other planner?

Our team of experienced planners hold bachelor’s degrees in Event Management, are certified wedding planners, and continue to self-educate to stay in-the-know with the latest styles and trends. We are personable, which makes us easy to work with, and our main focus is creating memorable lifelong experiences.

  • Are there any clients who aren’t a good fit for ASPIRE?

We would love to accommodate each and every client who’s in need of our products and services, although sometimes our goals may not align and that’s OK.

Those shopping for a planner based solely on price without respect to quality may not be a good fit. We’ve set our prices in line with the market, level of services provided, and experience offered. We believe that the lowest price is quite often not the best value and often leads to unfulfilled promises.


    • How long has ASPIRE been in business?

    Weddings By ASPIRE was launched in January 2019, one year following the official launch of ASPIRE Event Management, our parent company which focuses on the planning of corporate events.

    • How much does it cost to work with ASPIRE?

    It’s difficult to share our pricing online because our fees are based on the selection of services, size of wedding/event, and location – local or destination.

    • Do you plan other events beyond weddings?

    Absolutely! Our connection with our clients continues for years to come. Although weddings are our most frequently planned events, we love being involved with the planning of all celebrations – proposals, bridal and baby showers, birthdays and more! Are you a business wanting to host a meeting, event, or incentive trip? Our corporate planners with ASPIRE Event Management are the perfect fit.
