At Perfecting the Plan Weddings & Events our goal is to take the torch and deliver the event you dreamt of without the stress you’ve become familiar with.

Our Wedding Style Is:

Our wedding planning style is detailed-oriented, organized, and fun! We want the process to be enjoyable for our couples and our goal is to make it as stress-free as possible. We are passionate about what we do and it shines through in our work from the beginning of the process all the way to the very last thing we clean up after the party is over!

Our Personality Is:

Fun and goofy, but we know when you to get serious and get to work! We like to keep the planning process light and fun for our clients but we make sure no detail is overlooked and your day is exactly how you envisioned it to be!

What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:

After working at luxury hotels in the wedding and events sales departments for over 15 years, I decided to take the leap and start my own company. Through my tenure on the property, I saw a need for a “month of” coordinator to help people arrange the last-minute details and fine-tune their events in a stress-free environment. As time went on, I was asked to assist with designing and planning further than a month out which has since developed into new packages that offer Design Assistance to Full Planning and Design Packages.

We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

We love LOVE!! Being a part of making our client’s dreams become a reality is so rewarding and special and we absolutely love bringing your vision to life!

Getting the opportunity to see the couple and our hard work become a reality. I love seeing their faces when we reveille the reception room and how happy they are to see their dreams become a reality. It seriously gets me choked up every time!

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

We specialize in Month Of Planning. We know there are so many talented couples out there that know what they want and can get most of it done. Our goal is to take the last-minute stress off of them so they can enjoy the time leading up to their day and the day itself. We also offer Week Of, Partial & Full Planning, as well as an A La Carte Menu so we have something for everyone!

One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us Is:

I have been IN 30+ weddings either as a bridesmaid or officiant for my friends. I still have the dresses to prove it too!

One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:

Music and performing

Our Pricing:

We offer Month of, Partial Planning, Full-Planning and Design starting at $3,000. We also offer a la carte and custom packages.

Meet Jillian

I grew up performing and thinking I was going to spend my life on stage or in front of a camera. When I realized that wasn’t going to work out for me, I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life! After being in several weddings in my early 20s and being the bridesmaid that seemed to help with most of the planning, I decided to take that “talent” and turn it into a career and I haven’t looked back in 18 years! I found my other passion and am so excited I get to do what I love every day!

Jewel-Toned Winter Wedding | Tabellas at Delaney Creek

Being a planner myself, I needed someone who was going to allow me to have all my crazy ideas and bring them to life on the wedding day.

I’ve worked with Jillian from Perfecting The Plan for almost 10 years so I knew she was up for the challenge! Jillian and her two assistants knocked it out of the park. The fact that I was able to enjoy and not stress over one detail on the day of the wedding just proves how amazing they were. They were always one step ahead of everything. I was terrified that I wouldn't be able to get out of my ‘coordinator headspace' and truly enjoy the moment, but this proved to be the exact opposite knowing Jillian and her team had everything covered!

We wanted someone with a strong ability to multitask and the ability to manage our family for us so we did not have to worry!

Perfecting the Plan‘s service was fantastic and definitely took a lot of weight off of our shoulders during the wedding.

I initially did not even want a wedding planner, but as it got closer and I realized I still need to be working while planning last-minute details I got stressed. I needed someone who could help me with timelines and help me with last-minute contacting of vendors and just help me take away any stress!

I reached out to Melissa and she suggested their service. I called Jillian from Perfecting the Plan and liked her personality instantly. She helped me SO much with a timeline and answering all these questions I realized I had that I initially hadn't even thought of!

I needed someone who could help me organize everything. There are so many things you never even think about beforehand. So many little details matter when planning the day, and it was so nice to have someone as organized and on top of it as Jillian.

She is so productive and gets things done so efficiently it took all the stress out of wedding planning and made it fun. I was and still am amazed at how helpful Perfecting the Plan was. My mom and I both loved all of Jillian’s help, and we rave about her to everyone. She has the perfect personality type for her job: sweet, helpful, organized, and will speak up when necessary and get things done. She had a calming presence on my wedding day; I know I never could have done it without her.

Our planner, Jillian with Perfecting, the plan thought of every single detail and was outstanding.

We wanted someone who was nice and easy to work with but also could get things done, and Jillian at Perfecting the Plan was a boss with the best genuine energy and bright smile! We simply could not have had our amazing wedding without her and her team.

From the moment we called with a wedding date to the last dance on the wedding night, they felt like the fairy godmothers of wedding magic. The execution was flawless. Communication was always amazing, and Jillian kept up with ever-changing plans and looping in the vendors. We literally cannot come up with even one minor thing that fell through the cracks during this. It was all a dream!
