Meet Carla,

When did you open Style perfect Events? Why the name

I launched Style Perfect Events in March of 2009

When deciding on the business name 8 years ago, I listed several words and adjectives that resonated with me as a wedding and event planner and "Style Perfect" just stuck with me. However, over the years the business has grown in to its name as we focus primarily on wedding design and styling.

Your Mission as a wedding planner in your words? 

My mission as a wedding planner is to bring organization and FUN to a sometimes overwhelming, but exciting life milestone, your wedding! My calm demeanor and fun personality helps my clients relax and truly enjoy the planning process as I elevate their vision to the next level and plan the wedding of their dreams.  

Our company mission statement - Style Perfect Events is dedicated to innovative ideas, expert planning and coordination, premier vendors and upscale design. 

Where do you get your planning & wedding design inspiration?

Shopping, dining at restaurants, "going out" (networking, girls nights, date nights with my hubby)  travel, industry conferences, trade shows and Pinterest  

A tip for planning a wedding?

Have fun and prioritize! In a perfect world we would have everything we want, but many times we have to make compromises. Make a list of 8-10 wedding related items (photographer, cake, flowers, venue, etc.) and rank them, one being the most important. This will help you make easier budget decisions if money is starting to get tight, as you have already outlined what’s most important in the beginning. Also, enjoy this chapter of your life. Enjoy your engagement. If you can, have an engagement party and wait a few months before you get bogged down in wedding planning details. Enjoy your wedding. Be a bride that day and let your family and friends be a guest. If you've already decided that you don't want a wedding planner, it's a MUST that you have a wedding coordinator so you and your groom are not the point of contact for any questions or mishaps that will come up on your wedding day. 

How far in advance should they book your services?

3-12 months depending on the level of service, but we've also planned full weddings and 900 person corporate events in 4 weeks, so Style Perfect Events has your covered! ;-)
