The Planning Process

About to embark on your wedding planning journey?

You and your wedding planner will be spending a significant amount of time together, so it’s important you feel comfortable and enjoy one another’s company.


At MemorableTimes, we start every new client relationship by getting to know each other. I want to get to know you individually and as a couple, your personalities, your style, your ideas and what you envision your wedding day to be. I want you to get to know me, what I do, how I implement it and how I can make your wedding planning experience more fun and less stressful.

Each couple is unique, and I want to help you plan an unforgettable wedding that is the perfect reflection of your style and love for one another. Whether you have a Pinterest board chock full of ideas or have no idea where to begin, I’m eager to help you get started.


Of course, no wedding is completely stress-free, but I do everything I can to coordinate the little details and ease the burden, so you can have fun and relax. There’s nothing that makes me happier than guiding a couple through the process to help you plan the wedding of your dreams.

This is where my project management background comes in handy. My job is to eliminate any misunderstandings or confusion during the planning process and reduce your stress. I do that by maintaining communication with you as much or as little as you’d like, and by serving as the liaison between your wedding venue, vendors and, if applicable, your onsite planner.

DESTINATION WEDDING PLANNING

  • Contact via email, phone or face-to-face meetings, if possible
  • Wedding concept creation and design, plus risk management solutions
  • Venue recommendations and booking
  • Budget adherence and maximization
  • Access to respected, highly professional vendors
    • Entertainment, photographer, videographer, florist, pastry chef, lighting, transportation, officiant, etc.

  • Management and confirmation of vendors
  • Coordination with venue wedding planner
  • Selecting and mailing invitations

For many couples I work with, the location they think they want is not the location that best suits their needs. Wedding guests need to be taken into consideration, so affordability, amenities and accessibility are three key players. My extensive knowledge of Caribbean resorts and their offerings will allow us to zero in on the perfect location for you and your guests. We can plan weddings from Aruba to Antigua, and the Bahamas to Barbados.

I book and manage all of your guests’ travel arrangements. As the primary point of contact, your guests will know exactly who to go to should they have any questions throughout their own planning process.

  • Package includes Shari Vick as primary point of contact.
  • Travel is optional.
  • We only accept 2 weddings per month.

YOUR DREAMS, COMING TRUE

I am a firm believer that anything can be done tastefully, regardless of budget. My goal is to help you plan an experience that’s in line with your goals, while remaining consistent in budget. Couples can rest assured that we will adhere to the financial limits we discuss and agree upon.
