This blog post is an amazing collection of the opinions of not just one wedding planner, but many. I asked my wedding planner friends to weigh in on what makes a vendor preferred in their eyes. HINT: it has nothing to do with how many times a photographer has been ‘published’ or monetary kick backs…

“Josey was our day of coordinator for our wedding and I could not imagine planning our wedding without her. She made our day perfect and we did not worry about a thing. She is kind, humorous and on top of her game.”
There is a debate which rings through every wedding’s planning process, ‘Should we host hard liquor?’
Some venues don’t allow liquor, which ends the debate quicker; and some of your parents may absolutely, definitely, want to have an open bar all. night. long. Splendid.
But for the rest of you still twiddling your thumbs over whether or not to host just beer and wine or more than just beer and wine, let me introduce you to the signature cocktail.
Not just for fun or for a laugh, signature cocktails can be a great way to incorporate liquor in your bar menu, without the headache or the hassle of stocking a complete bar at your barn venue (remember what goes in must come out), and without the worry of running up your bar tab so that you’re friends can finally try a Sex on the Beach drink, only to realize that it features peach schnapps. Ewww
Signature cocktails keep the liquor contained to a few signature drinks. Ones that either you like, your fiance likes, a large group of friends or family like. Best practice is to have said drinks pre-mixed and ready to pour, however, if you want them available upon request make sure that you have an additional bartender (or even a separate bar) to keep the rest of the line moving.
Read on for a few unique but simple signature cocktails you must have at your wedding (click the image to download the recipe, because your bartender is going to want a copy of that fo’ sho’).
Have any other drink suggestions? I’d love to add them to the list, comment below with a link to the recipe!

Josey is the BEST EVER!!! I knew we had to work with her from our first meeting! She is so fun and perky and you will be instant friends. Trust me. She really does it all and has your back the whole entire planning process, even if you only need a day-of coordinator. The planning tools she uses are great and it's really easy to use to track your planning progress. She will make sure you are taken care of! We met several times during the planning progress and on the day of she ran the whole show like the pro she is. Did I also mention she is just full of knowledge and information about all things wedding? The woman has a podcast!!! And a blog too! She covers all the essential topics in wedding planning is so fun to listen to! She is the best :)

It is honestly a waste of time to look at any others planners. Josey gets it right the first time, every time! We recently used Josey as our wedding planner. Apparently, planning a wedding is supposed to be stressful. Thanks to Josey I never had to experience an ounce of stress. Thank you so much for making our special day elegant, stress-free & perfect!!!
“Our wedding day was smooth, organized and magical. Everything went off without a hitch (that I'm aware of). And that's how you truly know Josey is AMAZING at her job! In the beginning, I'm not going to lie... I wasn't sure that I needed a coordinator, but after that experience I couldn't imagine our wedding without her! As my husband said, "It was like magic... we needed something and POW! Josey pulled it out of her fanny pack." She is the BEST in the business that's for sure!”
