What is your typical process for working with a new client?

Chat chat chat ...over bubbles if possible. I like to meet with the potential client to get a feel for them and exchange energy. I don't just take notes, I sit and listen and exchange laughs and stories. The trust building between client and owner begins right away. First impressions are everything, so we really pride ourselves on making the right connections with future possibilities.
Once we sign, we get right to work wether it's full scale or day of, any and all packages begin way before your date. We believe in putting in the time to discover you, what you're dreaming of, what you have already put the work into and done . From the moment we sign with you we want there to be a big sigh of relief. Let us take care of you. Don't lift a finger...we want your whole experience to feel like pampering. From sending you emails with links to our recommended vendors that we specifically choose for your footprint, or being the best dog handlers for your city engagement photos, with the added extra of a makeup and hair touch-up…we’ve got you!

What services are you most excited to offer?

I've always had a gift for service, could be from my roots of being in the service industry from the young age of 17. Believe it or not, that same career carried me through starting and developing my business. I was pounding the waiter pavement during the first few years of opening my company. Slinging raw bars and charcuterie in one of Philly's most famous restaurants at night, and rising up extra early every morning to build client relationships and the service that we give them. The slogan that we use is 100 percent true. With all the things you do for the best day ever, do the biggest one for yourself and HIRE THE PLANNER. We want to bring you service at its highest level, walking you through each and every part, not holding your hand, but holding you up.

We want to do it all for you and watch you relax into the engagement, one of the most magical times. We love taking over your big file folder and digging in, connecting with the vendors you've already signed, collaborating with floral on your design, going over your contracts, speaking to vendors on your behalf, offering loads of advice and suggestions, and most of all...being an extension of you. So you can checkout and enjoy any time you wish..we'll still be there holding down the ship...always.

What makes your business stand apart?

It was important to me that I set myself apart from all of these other “planners/coordinators/event designers.” I can’t tell you how many times I've come across the words “just for you” “custom” “boutique” “your day”…I always thought to myself…”well, that’s a given”…obviously those things should be understood…it’s what else that makes the difference and sets one company apart from the other.

I wanted to create something beyond that…a personal, emotionally invested experience from us. Not just another spreadsheet, not just another invoice, not just another trip to look at linens. We are the company that hones in on exactly what your looking for. We want to bring fresh ideas to the table. We want to build a close and personal relationship with you. We want to know and feel the meaning behind why your event is what it should be. We don’t just want to be working for you, we want to be there for you..beyond the pomp and circumstance of the “emergency kit” or the recommendation “of the best caterer ever!” We are a client concierge. No hours of operation..just there for you ALWAYS

My only mistake in this process was not finding Fifty Shades of Planning soon enough. I could have been sipping cold bubbles and smiling months ago! I've literally felt like a weight was lifted off of my chest after we signed with her. It didn't take long for me to see how she works and to begin to trust the process. She does everything, and that was hard for me, because letting go and trusting someone isn't easy , but HUGE in my book. She proved herself and then some. Hire THIS Planner!

We never knew our journey with Fifty Shades of Planning would be 3 years in the making, but Jeanine proved herself very worthy of the undertaking. We were a "Covid wedding couple," and although I hate to use that as a label, it's important to know because without our planner we would have never been able to get through it all. What started as lovely full scale planning in 2019, turned into a rollercoaster of emotions, fears, vendor/venue issues, parent complaints, guest cancellations, and just a general loosing steam. Jeanine made me feel better about all of it the entire time. I've coined her "my fairy godplanner." She kept me sane, afloat, motivated, and most of all excited that I was in the best hands possible. Our connection stays strong even after the wedding. Cheers to Fifty Shades of Planning.

You don't see most groom's writing the reviews, but I have to step forward and say "Thank you" Jeanine and the Fifty shades of Planning Team for making my true love, my wife so ridiculously happy. This was a second wedding for her but the first for me. She would have been happy with a justice of the peace lol. But I had other visions and dreams to marry my beautiful lady, I just didn't have the time to plan it all and make the vision come to life..Jeanine did. She took our love of Tuscany, where we got engaged, and brought it to life right in front of our eyes. Every person that she curated to be a part of the team was a perfect fit, so us. I found that fascinating. She really got to know us and built a relationship with us. And when it came time for her to introduce us to who we should be using, it felt as if we hand picked them ourselves. Talk about knowing us to a T.

It was one of the best days of my life, heck, best years of my life. I really got to take it all in with my wife, sit back and just enjoy the ride. That's priceless in my book, and so was the smile my love had the entire time. I know a huge part of that was because of Fifty shades of Planning. I'd hire her again and again. Vow renewal every year? Sounds good to me !
