Silver Charm Events Will Plan Your Wedding in 6 Months


She even wrote a book about it

by Maddie Eisenhart, Chief Revenue Officer

Wedding venue with empty white chairs and pink flowersLiz Coopersmith of Silver Charm Events is perhaps best known around these parts as the creator of the Olive Garden Rule, a super smart catering maxim that reframes how to think about food and drink prices per head. That pro-tip is no surprise, as Liz was The Broke-Ass Bride’s advice columnist for five years and has written two wedding planning guides (both available on Amazon: The Mad Dash Down the Aisle and DIY Your DOC). But when she’s not doling out this kind of no-nonsense wedding planning advice around the Internet, Liz is a wedding planner based in Los Angeles that you can actually hire to make your planning process easier in real life.

After a decade of wedding planning experience (on top of a prior career in conference and event planning), Silver Charm Events’ specialty is planning weddings under pressure, whether that means a short period of time or requiring any unique specifications or circumstances. As Liz says:

“You don’t have to wait a whole year—or take a whole year—to get married to the love of your life.”

Which, can we get an AMEN?, because a year of your life is kind of a long time when you look back on it and realize that your wedding became just as all-consuming as you promised yourself it wouldn’t be. (Not like anyone on the APW staff has ever done that, ahem.)

And no matter what tight time frames and unique challenges you throw her way, Liz will never fail to bring it all back around to however YOU want your day to look and feel—even when you begin to question your own judgment:

Wedding fear is pervasive, everyone is scared of doing the wrong thing. So many clients ask me, “Can we do this, can we do that,” which is never the right question. You can do whatever you want, it’s your wedding. So, never ask, “Can we…?” The right question is, “How?” I work for you as you—this is your wedding, it’s not your wedding in my image. My job is to help you make whatever it is that you want, work. Your vendors, your DIY projects, your timeline, your time, YOUR vision of your wedding day.

Remember how we said Silver Charm Events has been in business for a decade? That means they have ten years’ worth of happy clients:

Thank God for Liz!!! We planned a wedding for 200 people in just six months! We hired Liz for her full services and this was money well-spent. Her patience and help made it possible for us to create exactly the exciting and unique wedding experience that we had imagined. She is an expert in all things wedding and just being able to ask her endless questions throughout the process was priceless. She is a gem!
