Let’s face it….Planning a wedding is hard, stressful, & complicated!! It’s your most special day! You want it to be perfect! Sure, you’ve been to several of your friends weddings, you’ve read all the bridal magazines, been on Pinterest for weeks, so why is this so hard? The fact is that planning a wedding is the most involved & most important thing you will ever do! Even buying a house isn’t this big! Why? This is the start of your forever after journey! This is where your new story with your fiancé begins. Weddings have always been a celebration & are often times super elaborate because of what they mean! They are full of traditions, some good, others not as good, but they represent the joining of two lives into a new family. Read on to see our picks for the Top 3 Wedding Planners in Oklahoma…
Unless you work in the wedding industry as a fulltime job, this will be the only time you are this involved in the wedding planning process. Even if you have helped a friend or family member, this time you will have your hands in everything! Much like utilizing a Realtor to help you buy a house, make an offer, find deals where the general public isn’t allowed to search, or look over contracts for issues, using a wedding planner or coordinator to help you plan your wedding is a much needed necessity. Using a professional wedding planner can take a mountain of stress off your shoulders as well as save you a lot of money, searching time, conversations, & issues that can arise on the day you’re suppose to relax & enjoy.
Today we are highlighting our picks for the top 3 wedding planners in Oklahoma. These ladies are all AMAZING at what they do & they & their team will literally give you the day you have always dreamed about!
(Photographer’s sidenote:) As wedding photographers it’s vital for us when our couples are relaxed & stress-free on their big day! We want your photos to capture the true enjoyment & excitement you feel. Working with the best vendors makes our job so much easier. When you are relaxed & happy, it WILL show in your photos. Also, having someone close who can solve any unexpected issues, help with timing, fixing wardrobe problems, etc is invaluable.
The Top 3 Wedding Planners in Oklahoma:
#1 – BeYoutiful Occasions
Britney & her team at BeYoutiful Occasions is absolutely one of the best Planners in Oklahoma! When you want a friend to surround you & hype you up, Britney is your girl! Most brides think they can’t afford to hire a planner, but what most don’t realize about using Britney is they can actually save money. Britney works with some amazing wedding vendors who also offer discounts for working with her! From liquor, to certain venues, to even our Photography Collections. When Britney is planning a wedding, she has everything under control.
What we love about Britney is that not only will she do a “full plan” in which she can literally handle every aspect of your day with you from assisting with vendor selection, payment, setup, etc, but she can also do month of planning as well for those brides who have already gotten most things under control & are wanting just that extra little push! Watching Britney, Makayla, & Destiny on a wedding day is amazing! They are always there when we need them. If you’re worried about rain, lipstick, touchup, food, or whatever……DON’T! We have literally had Britney pull up in her super golf cart with umbrellas so we didn’t have to stop taking portraits when it started raining!
Also, Britney can help plan your honeymoon for free! As a travel agent as well, she helps any couple she plans for to plan & book all the details for your perfect honeymoon at no extra cost! What??!! No matter what stage of wedding planning you’re at, Britney can get you to the perfect day! Reach out to her for more information! Let her know Doug & Ashley sent you! 😊😉

Whether you have a complete idea of what you want or are starting with just a date, Southern Charm can help you bring your vision into reality! One of our most favorite memories is one from one of our amazing couples who had only a few weeks left until their wedding. They were so stressed out because of work, school, & wedding planning.
