you INSPIRE us

    You should first know that we are not selling wedding planning services. We sell: Expert Advice, Advocate, Creativity, Peace of Mind and a whole lotta work behind the scenes so you feel like a guest at your own wedding. With over 11 years of experience, there is not too many challenges we haven’t encountered.

    You don’t NEED a wedding planner, you will WANT one.

    our wedding planning services are tiered in three basic levels:

    Full Wedding Planning Service

    This service is everything you need to plan your celebration. Monthly meetings, vendor referrals, design, budget, planning the details, creating the details and more. We have a modern Wedding Blueprint that we developed that will map out your entire wedding planning.

    Partial Wedding Planning Service

    A little more than the month of wedding planning service; this is perfect for couples that need some pre-planning hours, design, floor plans, vendor referrals, Wedding Blueprint and more. Customized just for you, we help you as little or as much as you need.

    Month of Wedding Planning Service

    Our entry level service, this is our wedding day management. You plan, we implement. We will meet 6 weeks before your big day – pull together all your ideas and plans and then direct your day. We’ll be your Wedding Gladiators! (did you see the Scandal reference?)

    Every wedding is unique and different, just as our clients. That is why we like to sit down with you for a complimentary consultation to listen to you. That’s right, listen. You probably have already done your homework about us, so we want to hear about your ideas, your wishes and your dreams for one of the most important celebrations of your life.

    After our fabulous discussion, we will develop a custom wedding service proposal that fits your needs.

    Excelling in vendor referrals (matching the right team that fits your personality and budget), planning sessions, budget creation, floor plans, design/decor, reviewing contracts, producing timelines and production schedules, selecting menus and etiquette guidelines is just a sampling of the services we provide you. Laughing your way through the process, is absolutely free.

    Because of our client service approach, we unfortunately have to limit the amount of weddings we do each month. Our services are customized for your wedding and you will receive a detailed proposal outlining your wedding services and your total investment. Our awesome, custom wedding planning services that will leave you feeling like it was the best money you ever spent on your wedding.

    what everyone asks about our pricing:

    how is your pricing determined?

    We know that every wedding is different and so are the needs of our clients. Some people can plan everything but want to relax on their wedding day. Others are too busy to be doing all the footwork of the planning, but want to make executive decisions. And then others are somewhere in that in-between place.

    So we sit with you and ask a lot of questions, then deliver a custom proposal that will have several options for you to select. You know exactly what you are getting for your investment. You aren’t over or under sold.

    what factors determine your pricing?

    Several important areas will determine your pricing (and this is based on over ten years of experience).

    • Location of wedding
    • Number of expected wedding guests
    • Private Residence events
    • How much time do you have to devote to your planning?

    do you charge a percentage of budget?

    NO.

    And we don’t take kick-backs from vendors. If they offer us a deal on their services, we pass that along to our awesome clients.

    Our Philosophy

    It’s really quite simple.

    We are “the FUN event engineers” that help you plan your wedding. We are approachable, authentic, creative, and organized. All great qualities that put our clients’ minds at ease.

    Available at ANY point during your planning process, we know that it is important for you to feel comfortable and have confidence with the team that will help you celebrate one of the most important days in your lives. We just feel strongly that you should have some fun throughout the planning process. We hope you don’t mind. 

    Tech Savvy

    We are lovers of all technological things and have always been ahead of the curve in our area.

    So we have developed a Virtual Wedding Office that can easily keep you informed and up-to-date during your planning process.

    Pictures, signed contracts, to-do lists, deadlines, calendar deadlines and important, communication between you and us – always at your fingertips. It’s perfectly accessible anywhere you are, as long as you have a Internet access with a computer or smart device. It’s proven so helpful for both local and out-of-town couples. Because being wedding nerdy, is cool.

    Complimentary Consultation

    We offer a complimentary initial consultation, available in person or via phone during which we evaluate your event needs and determine if our services and personalities are a good match. This is also where we garner the information to deliver a custom proposal to you.

    A lot of time goes into planning a wedding and we know it is important for you to feel comfortable with whomever you hire as your planner. Please don’t delay as our calendar during peak wedding season fills up quickly!

    To schedule a consultation, please call us at 812.518.0094 or contact us.

    Wedding planning is such an intimate business. Families let you inside their circle of trust and it’s such an awesome privilege and should be treated as such.

    Look nowhere else for your event planner!! They are AMAZING and took care of every single detail. They contacted every vendor and housed every contract we signed. With 450 guests in attendance, there is no way we could have pulled it off without planning forever events! I cannot say enough about them…FABULOUS, EXCELLENT, AWESOME…

    When my husband Travis and I got engaged, I knew I wanted to find a wedding planner to help us plan our special day. I set up a few appointments with various wedding planners in town, and met with Saundra first. After meeting her, I cancelled my other appointments because I knew right away that Saundra was a perfect match.

    Saundra and her team did a magnificent job!!! I keep looking back at everything and wondering how a wedding that beautiful and perfect was our AMAZING wedding! We owe it all to Planning Forever Events! It was so nice because if anything I forgot that day all I had to do was call one of her staff and they had it to me right away! Saundra is the absolute best and having a wedding planner was the best money we spent during the whole wedding. You can not go wrong by hiring them. They pulled off everything I have ever dreamed of and MORE!! We really owe every amazing memory to you and your staff! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

    Thank you so much for being the calm in the eye of the “storm” that was our wedding. The day may not have been exactly as planned, but because of you and your staff all of it felt like the perfect day I had imagined. Thank you all so much for all of the hard work  you put into it. Your long hours and wonderful attitude meant so much to us. Thank you again!
