What is the best way to make your wedding guest list? If it were up to you two as a couple, you’d invite your closest family and friends and be done. But then your parents have their own list and then what do you do with the singles? Should they get a plus one...what are the rules?

In this post I’m going to outline the role of a wedding planner and specifically the relationship we have with our clients as every true planner chooses to run his/her business differently. Your wedding planner may be a designer, he/she may just be a coordinator, they may offer partial planning or be a full service planner. Here at Michelle Isabel & Co we are full service planners and designers that also offer management/coordination services.
