So… let’s be honest. Unless you have unlimited time, unlimited money, or a fairy godmother granting your every wish, planning the wedding of your dreams can be a daunting task. Am I right?! 

With hundreds of decisions that need to be made during the wedding planning process (Sit-down dinner or buffet? Band or DJ? Is your signature color blush or bashful? And what the heck is bashful?!), it’s no wonder that normally rational adults can lose their minds trying to plan the wedding of their dreams.

And forget all the tiny details… most couples don’t even know where to start when it comes to planning a wedding. This is likely the most money you’ve ever spent on one day in your life, and you definitely don’t want to screw it up!

Does that sound like you? Well, take a deep breath…

Hitched Academy is here to help!​

Hitched Academy provides educational tools to engaged couples throughout their wedding planning process.

My name is Kimberly Rhodes, and I’m the owner and principal event planner behind wedding planning company Hitched Events. I’ve been passionate about guiding my clients through the many steps of planning a beautiful, stress-free wedding since 2011. But while running my event planning company, I realized there was an all or nothing approach to planning a wedding – you hire a professional wedding planner to help guide you every step of the way or you struggle through the process on your own. Shouldn’t there be some other way?! Something in between all and nothing??

Now… don’t get me wrong. Planning weddings directly with clients is totally my jam! If you want a gorgeous ballroom wedding with exquisite tablecloths, custom menu cards, and the best band money can buy, I’m your girl. But there are plenty of people who simply shouldn’t hire someone like me! The truth of the matter is, hiring a full service wedding planner is a luxury. But somewhere along the line, every person with a ring on their finger (regardless of how big the diamond) got the crazy idea that they needed a wedding planner. I mean… that’s great in theory. But a good wedding planner isn’t cheap! Do you have the budget to support having someone help you put it all together without sacrificing the quality of the overall event? If you do… awesome! Give me a call and let’s do it. If not… Hitched Academy is your wedding planning home away from home!

Hitched Academy is an educational resource for couples planning a wedding. My hope is that through the Hitched Academy blog and Hitched Academy courses, I can make “going it alone” not feel so lonely! In fact, I’m sharing many of the same tips and tricks for how to plan a wedding that I give my own wedding planning clients. Follow along as I share the ins and outs of how to plan a wedding as well as the biggest mistakes to avoid.
