Questions and Answers
Tell us about your company name.
Beso is pronounced beh-so and means "kiss" in Spanish.
Why should someone hire you?
We make planning easy, creative, and effortless. Couples come to us for professional wedding consultation, which gives them peace of mind that their event will turn out as they envision it. Our clients want their family and friends to join them in the celebration—not for them to work it. We guide our clients through each step of the wedding planning process and manage the wedding day timeline so our clients can simply enjoy their once-in-a-lifetime day.
Our clients tell us they are overwhelmed by all the inspiration photos they find on Pinterest, blogs, and magazines. They work with us because they want an engaging and personalized wedding that's unique to them and they trust our creativity, resourcefulness and experience to execute their vision.
With us you have a trusted partner in planning helping you navigate the planning tasks and decisions so you don't miss anything important. Our clients love our comprehensive online planning tool which has everything needed to keep the planning organized and on track. We collaborate with you to design a personalized wedding and take care of the details because you deserve to enjoy every moment of your special day!
What are the common misconceptions about your services?
A common misconception is that the couple won't have control over their event and the wedding planner will take over the details and make all the decisions. We specialize in bringing our client's vision together beautifully and cohesively. Our approach is collaborative to ensure your wedding represents your vision.
What makes a wedding memorable for you?
Seeing how excited the couple is that everything has come together and how happy they are to be married and celebrating their special day with their family and closest friends.
What is the best advice you give a couple when planning their wedding?
I recommend to have a budget in mind before beginning the wedding planning. There will be sticker shock moments and being armed with a guideline helps save a lot of time and frustration that may arise during the vendor selection and decision-making process. Our wedding planning service includes budget consulting which our clients find helpful when determining a realistic budget for the wedding they envision.
Also, another important piece of advice is to only hire professionals that specialize in the wedding services needed. We have seen things fall through or not turn out as expected. Professionals know the ins and outs of working weddings based on the location, venue type, wedding size, time of year, etc. Most of our clients don't know what to look for when selecting their vendors so we help them by curating professional vendors based on their wedding style and budget.
If you could have any superpower on the job, what would it be?
It would be to control the weather. More and more couples want an outdoor/garden ceremony and cocktail hour. I would love to make their vision happen every time.
What are 3 words that describe your personality?
Creative. Organized. Caring.
What's your favorite book/movie/work of art?
I love going to the theater (especially those with the recliners and adult beverages!) as well as watching movies at home. My current favorite movie is Wonder Woman. I display artwork by Picasso, Monet and Van Gogh (I wish they were originals) at my home, and look forward to one day displaying artwork and sculptures by modern-day artists.
What's your favorite quote?
"Work smarter, not harder."
This quote speaks to our desire to help engaged couples enjoy their wedding planning process. Whether our client is studying for their board exam or already busy professionals, they love our comprehensive online planning tool because it helps them organize and collaborate on everything for their wedding and includes a free wedding website!
