On average, brides will spend approximately $2,635 on hiring a wedding planner & that’s a number that can escalate quickly! For a lot of us, thats a luxury that just isn’t in the budget.
For brides that are looking to keep their wedding in the $20 thousand target range, hiring a planner will take up 13% of your total budget. For those looking to spend under $10 thousand, the average planner will eat up a whopping 26% of your entire budget. Shave your budget down to $5 thousand and you are looking at 53%, and we haven’t even started looking at the fun things like dresses, venues, and pretty flowers!
That’s where Bells Box comes in! When you are a Bell, you will have access to all of our wedding planning tools that we have designed for our brides to help plan their big day. Not only are we on a mission bridge the gap between the free resources that are out there & the big expense of hiring a planner, we also want to help to create less stress on you financially by saving you time & energy. Creating a space where you are able to stop worrying about THE HOW of the Day & start focusing on THE WHY of it all, is what we are all about!
We have designed our signature Bells Box specifically to work with newly engaged couples, helping to kickstart their planning process. By giving you all of the tools you will need to plan & effectively execute your big day immediately at your fingertips, you will be able to cut wasting time & worrying about having the right information to make informed decisions off of your to do list!
When we are planning our dream days, one of the biggest challenges that we face is not having a road map of what we need to do. Where we start & where do we go once we get going. With that in mind, we created our hybrid workbook & planner, called our Planning On Forever Agenda. With the help of the materials inside of our agenda, you will find everything that you will need to visualize, prioritize, organize & plan out the details that surround your day & everything in between. Designed to be your planning assistant, you will know exactly what steps to follow in order to move from step to step in your planning process! We have also included monthly planning pages & daily planning pages that are specific to your story & keeping with your true priorities & budget!
Another tricky area that tends to fall apart when we are in the planning phase is our finances. For many of us, we are waiting till after the wedding to start worrying about that pesky topic & that can cause a lot of us to wind up in unknown territory that causes stress on our relationships & our finances. Instead of skirting that topic, our workbooks address how to handle all conversations about money & finances from the engagement, to the wedding, to the honeymoon & beyond. We walk you through determining your financial relationship as a couple well before we help you move on to creating a wedding budget. We also provide our brides with budgeting tools & spreadsheets that coordinate with the workbooks to help them keep track of all of their details all in one central location.
