Wilder Mind Events


What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:

I was already working in the industry, and other vendors were actually the ones who were pushing me to start my own business. After a lot of evaluation, I decided to take the leap and create the life I’ve always wanted!

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

We are unconventional and no idea is too weird for us. We thrive when you want to stray away from anything that is deemed “basic”. We also are extremely laid back and are your sense of calm (even on the wedding day!)

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

Most people would be surprised to know that I was never someone who dreamed of planning my own wedding. I completely fell into this industry and was caught off guard with how much I loved it!! It’s the perfect job since I’m both a type A and type B personality.

One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:

One of my passions is relationships and beach volleyball. If I’m not planning weddings I’m probably hanging out with my friends or playing in a beach volleyball tournament!

Our Pricing:

Pricing for Month of starts at $1,785

Partial Planning starts at $3,465

Full Planning starts at $5,775



Meet Delaney

I’m a former college athlete who has always been on the quirky side. I was born and raised in Texas and my volleyball career has taken me to Louisiana, Arkansas, and Florida. Athletic sports has been the main thing that has identified my life. In another life I would’ve been a professional hip hop dancer but for this life I’ll just be the weird armature that dances alone in front of a band! Most people would be surprised to know that I was never someone who dreamed of planning my own wedding. I completely fell into this industry and was caught off guard with how much I loved it!! It’s the perfect job since I’m both a type A and type B personality.

We looked for someone who could just take our vision and run with it. We both work full-time jobs and with me being in the medical field, it was very hard to plan a wedding myself. I knew there would be meetings I couldn’t attend, and it really helped to have a team able to support those moments.

Delaney from Wilder Mild Events was perfect from start to finish. She really did a great job of keeping everything in order, from the checklist to the final project. Delaney was on top of everything and kept me sane; she understood how busy we both were and made it very easy by taking our vision and helping make it come to life. She was the best help and was there for the whole process from start to finish. We couldn’t have done all of this without Wilder Mild Events.

I looked for someone down to earth but super into the details. We wanted someone who aligned with our own personalities and understood where we were coming from.

We loved working with Wilder Mind Events! Delaney is awesome and did a great job, especially on the day of to ensure our big day went smoothly, despite all the behind-the-scenes chaos that inevitably happens with weddings.

I needed someone who was not afraid to be a little unconventional and wild. JT and I wanted our wedding to reflect our laid-back energy as a couple and did not want to follow typical traditions. We wanted something memorable and uniquely us. I inquired with a handful of wedding planners, but my phone call with Delaney confirmed that ‘girls who get it, get it. Those who don't, don't.' I just knew she was our perfect match.

I absolutely adore Delaney and all of the Wilder Mind Events team. During my planning process, I actually reached out to Delaney and became one of her day of coordination assistants, so I was able to gain hands-on experience in the wedding world and see how she and her team worked executing wedding weekends. Wilder Minds embodies what it means to be a chill, easygoing, type-A person. Last minute change to the ceremony lineup? Handled. Vendors who need a detailed wedding itinerary of load-in and out times? Done. Does the bride want a waterfall or a menu napkin fold? Waterfall, we spoke about it this morning.

On my wedding day, I think Delaney asked me a total of three questions and coordinated and handled the rest. Did I know about the wedding crashers who tried to utilize my open bar? Nope. Did I stress out over the random morning market that went past the proposed end time and prevented my vendors from reaching the venue? Nope. I cannot even begin to tell you how flawlessly my wedding weekend went, and it was because I hired some of the best women in the business.

We chose Wilder Mind Events because Delaney is committed to bringing her couple's vision to life. She takes an active role in the design of the event, not just coordination. I had never even been in a wedding before, so I had no clue what I was doing. I could never have done it without her!

Delaney is the one for a fun, creative, beautiful, colorful, hip, bold, you-name-it-she-can-do-it wedding! I am so happy we hired her, and only wish I had an unlimited budget that she could have gone wild with. I come from a family of artists and DIY-ers but didn’t have the bandwidth, organizational skills, or local knowledge to pull off a wedding myself. We chose the partial planning package, and Delaney’s experience and coordination were invaluable! Her preferred vendor lists, advice, and checklists made planning manageable.

Her day-of coordination and her assistant, Taylor, allowed me to have a worry-free wedding day. Her vendor recommendations all exceeded our expectations! On top of all that, Delaney was special because she understood our vibe and brought our vision to life!

We live in Boston, so we met over the phone and communicated mostly by email. Delaney was always both upbeat and professional. She was willing to go back and forth via email as much as necessary to get things right. My jewel-toned reception was gorgeous; it was everything I had hoped for and more! If you like color and fun, hire Wilder Mind Events!

We wanted someone we could inherently trust, who was also Type-A, organized like me, and had a fun demeanor, as the main goal of the day was to truly have a blast and not worry about a thing.

My focus was finding woman-owned businesses, and after speaking to Delaney at Wilder Mind Events, I felt we found a partner we could trust and lean on as our month-of coordinator. They had a fun eye and a playful demeanor we were looking for, combined with Type-A organization we felt was a good match.

Morgan and Taycora at Wilder Mind Events were a dream and really went above and beyond to help us pull everything together after Hurricane Ian. We had many last-minute-by-minute updates leading up to the day with our ‘plans A-D,' not knowing how much damage the hurricane would lead to.

Since we live in Nashville but were getting married in Florida, we had to plan our wedding from states away. It was really important to us to find someone who could connect us with reputable vendors and who could execute our plans so that when we arrived the week before the big day, we could enjoy that time with our families without having to worry about tying up loose ends ahead of the event.

After reading the reviews for Wilder Minds Events and consulting with Delaney, we knew we had to go with her. She was so much fun. Even though her personality is very laid back, she's got everything under control, and she's thought of anything and everything before you have! Working with her and her team was probably one of the best, if not the best, decision we made when starting the wedding planning process.
