As you begin your search for a Williamsburg Wedding Planner and event producer, it’s always important to know who you will be dealing with on a personal level. So this article is to talk about what to expect from Liz Daley, me.
I do my best work for Creative Type A people who want their wedding to be personal, organized and most importantly FUN!
My clients DO NOT WANT the same cheesy wedding shenanigans that they’ve seen hundreds of times. They want something special!
I am seeking intelligent, friendly, sentimental, highly motivated go-getters who are either in grad school or in professional careers and are the last of their friends to get married. (which means you KNOW how important getting the right professionals for your day is to its success)
If this describes you, then the next step is to meet either online via video chat or in person. Now I understand you might be hesitant to meet because you’re afraid I might tie you to a chair until you sign a contract, but nothing could be further from the truth. I’m an artist who is looking for clients who deserve all the heart and soul I will put into their wedding day.
I began doing weddings completely by accident as a way of supporting myself as a starving artist while living in NYC. I soon discovered that helping people celebrate was a whole lot of fun and more personally rewarding than I ever could have imagined. Now, after 20+ years in the business I can honestly say I create great weddings! It’s everything I ever wanted in a job, especially because it’s create and fun! And it’s all about love. Every week of my life is different and challenging. I wear my heart on my sleeve, so the cut throat corporate world made me miserable. With weddings as my career…I get to nurture other people and share my love of life. And most importantly…it’s never boring.
I create great weddings. Plain and Simple. And in order to help you have a great wedding, it is necessary for me to wear many hats (just like many of you do at your jobs). I will help you organize all your crazy thoughts and together, we will create a cohesive plan. We will work on selecting the perfect soundtrack. We will collaborate on writing the perfect personalized introductions for your wedding party members, And ﬁnally we will make the day run so smoothly it will seem effortless. This doesn’t just happen by accident. It takes a lot of work and advance preparation. All of these things combined is what makes what I do special and what will guarantee you an amazing celebration, because I will help you stack the deck in your favor!
Some couples begin searching for and securing their wedding entertainment a full year before their wedding, however most secure their entertainment between 7 to 9 months before the big day. The more in demand your date is, the earlier it will be booked.
In Virginia, the most in demand months are: March, April, September and October, followed closely by May, June and November. July and August are HOT!!!!(so you’d best be inside with air conditioning) December, January and February are COLD!!!! (and snow is so much more beautiful when you’re inside in front of a ﬁre looking out the window)
Likewise, Saturday is the most in demand day of the week followed by Sunday then Friday. You can usually get good discounts for non-premium days and months. Once you’ve had a chance to look through my website and you want to know more, we should get together and chat either in person or via ZOOM or FACE TIME to see if we’re a good match personally.
If you decide to reserve my time and talent as your Williamsburg Wedding Planner for your wedding day, you will become a VIP! Your emails and phone calls become a priority. Additionally, you will have access to all my customized online planning forms including information organization, checklists and music suggestions.
Throughout the planning process will will meet several times to make sure that everything is coming together smoothly regarding your personalized introductions, your event timeline and your music.
If I am helping you with your ceremony or if you choose to include voice-over recordings or to ROAST your bridal party…we will be spending a little bit more time together.
As a Williamsburg Wedding Planner, I think one of the most important things I will give you is the generosity of my time from the moment you hire me. I will be there via text or email (or phone call) to answer all your questions that will inevitably come up. None of this I’ll get back to you in 24 hours business. I choose to do this because it will give you peace of mind and help you avoid wedding stress.
For truly great weddings, the goal of Liz Daley Events is to make the wedding planning process for your wedding just as much fun as the wedding celebration itself. I will help you find fun was to incorporate your ideas, and together we will get creative. My track record proves that I will make you and your ﬁancé shine on your wedding day! Trust me and I will make everything as easy as possible for you. I will absolutely showcase your personality, your heart and your soul. And at the end of the day…I love the personal satisfaction of creating great weddings and I really want your friends and family to have an absolutely amazing time! And yes…you will be treated like the valuable client you are. I will be just as committed to the success of your wedding day as you are. Why? Because I care.
If you are looking for wedding reception entertainment that is a little more Offbeat and completely different from anything you’ve ever seen before…you’ve come to the right place. A lot of DJs will throw the word “personalization” around, but they don’t really do it. And if they try to, they most likely do it at a mediocre level.
Allowing you to choose your Grand Entrance song and your First Dance song is not “personalization”…it’s customization. And just because you have a microphone and make announcements doesn’t mean you are a Master of Ceremonies. Again…request video.
DJs may use terms like “personalization”, “voice-overs” and “love story” so you might think that they are all the same. They are not. The results are dramatically different.
In order to create great weddings, my approach is to bring my background in theatre to your wedding reception with all the production values I’ve learned in my 20+ years as a professional entertainer. Thinking outside the box will be applauded, not condemned. Implementing your unique and quirky ideas through collaboration is the best part of my job.
My clients tell me that I’ve set the standard for exceptional wedding entertainment that your guests will be talking about for years to come! So…if I haven’t scared off you yet…because clearly I am not a shy wallﬂower. And If you’re looking for someone who will help you make your wedding dreams come true…. I’m your bee-yotch. Call me to schedule your personal consultation at 757-566-4530. I promise to be available to answer any questions you may have.

It should be a simple request to find someone who will do everything they say they will do and more, and will be there from day one, I’m your girl!
