Planning a wedding is largely about the details and the logistics whether your planning a small garden event or a destination wedding from abroad working with a professional planner can greatly reduce the anxiety of planning the most exciting day of your life. Today we have the pleasure of introducing you to a vendor we love, Paulina Clute. Originally from New Orleans she now calls Las Vegas her home, her “Mardis Gras” flair is a perfect fit for our city! So without further adieu…..please meet Paulina Clute, of Paulina Clute Events, LLC.
Hey Y’all, I’m Paulina…the ringleader behind Paulina Clute Events, LLC. I first fell in love with the idea of being a wedding planner at 17. I assisted a high-end wedding planner on a huge wedding in New Orleans, where I grew up. I was hooked. Though it took me until last year to officially launch my own business, it’s really always been my passion. Since then, we’ve figured out some great ways of tailoring our services to exactly what our clients are in need of. We offer all customized planning packages. From a full service planning experience, to a day of coordination package, there really is an option to fit everyone’s needs and budget. In this last year, I’ve been privileged to have Makeup in the 702 as part of my vendor team on numerous occasions. On a day where there are so many things to make sure are perfect, it’s a treat to not have to worry about all the girls hair and makeup. The artists will be early, my clients needs will be met, and the end result will be flawless.
What would you like a planning couple to know about your business?
Planning a wedding is an exciting and stressful time for the newly engaged. There are so many avenues to be navigated. Having someone on your side to walk you through the process is invaluable. A lot of couples see a wedding planner as an unnecessary expense or luxury. In my opinion, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Though you may not need/want a wedding planner to be there at every turn, at minimum, a day of coordinator will ensure that all the details you’ve planned out over the last year are executed.
What are the benefits of using your service?
There are so many benefits to hiring a wedding planner or day of coordinator. First of all, if you’ve started the planning process, you know there are a million details. You’ll probably find yourself making tons of phone calls, sending email after email, scheduling appointments and meetings, and worrying if you’re making the right decisions. That all ends once a wedding planner steps in. With our complete wedding planning package, you only call, email, or text me. I handle all of the back and worth communication. The middleman is cut out. Appointments and meetings are scheduled to your convenience….after all, you are the customer. We’re here to give you advice. To help you choose the right photographer to fit your style, the right florist to create the bouquet you’ve always dreamed of, and the perfect DJ for your kind of party. Because this is what we do week in and week out, we know what vendors are going to be best for you. It’s more than just seeing a great photo online and deciding on a photographer. We see behind the scenes. Is this photographer intrusive during the ceremony? How quickly and organized do they get the family and group photos done? Maybe it’s helping you word your invitations because your parents are divorced? Or calling the guest that RSVP’d a plus one, when that wasn’t indicated on the invitation. We’re here to help you at every turn. To make sure the correct song is played when it’s supposed to be. To ensure your new husband has a Jack and Coke in hand. To remind the caterer that Julie at table 5 has a gluten allergy. All the details that you’ve thought about while laying in bed at night, your wedding planner is there to make sure doesn’t get overlooked or forgotten.
It must be quite a challenge to come up with new ideas, Where do you find your inspiration?
After every wedding is wrapped, I sit down and have a meeting with myself. I go over the day. What were the highlights? What worked best? Where can we improve? It really is my last event that inspires to push through and raise the bar for the next one. There is such high I feel when I finally get in my car (at whatever ungodly hour it might be) after a wedding and think, “I just helped make all of their dreams come true! Now let’s do it again, only better!” I also love the fresh ideas being brought to me by my new clients. I love hearing my clients vision, then sitting down and researching how to make it come to life. I’ll find myself laying in bed at night thinking of a creative new floor plan, then next thing you know I’m on my phone pulling up diagrams to see if it will work. It’s so fun to be able to incorporate my past experiences with new clients dreams…and make them come to life!
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers today?
As you begin the wedding planning journey, please don’t forget what it’s all about. Of course, you want this day to be more than you’ve ever dreamed of, to be the best day of your life…but you must remember the reason you’re doing this. The ultimate goal; that is to commit your life to your partner, to begin your life with your soul mate, beyond that, you’re just throwing a great party!
