I’m April, and when I married my husband in the summer of 2015 I had already been planning events & weddings for a few years. I knew the best vendors & had relationships with them, I knew how to organize and coordinate, I made lists and I made my own day-of timeline. I thought that doing it all myself was a great plan and I was sure I didn’t need any help.
I am getting my hair curled and my make-up applied all while trying to direct my bridesmaids on final set-up details.
“The butter needs to be melted!” (popcorn bar)
“Sangria needs taken down to the bartenders.”
“Where are the groomsmen?”
“Do we have the rings?”
I was a bit stressed, to say the least. I had completely taken for granted that I was responsible for executing all of the pieces of the wedding that I had painstakingly planned. I had cast myself in too many roles: leading actress, writer, director, set-decorator, & clean-up crew. Yikes.
So, armed with personal experience and years of events under my belt, I decided to start April Marie Events in the summer of 2016. We plan and execute a wide variety of events like birthday and celebration parties, customer appreciation events, and more, and we specialize in wedding planning.
April Marie Events is a full service wedding design and planning company based on the Western Slope of Colorado. We love flowers, cake, love, and we definitely love weddings!
