I’m a HUGE fan of Los Angeles-based wedding planner Laura Guerrie. Laura is more than a sponsor, she’s part of the Offbeat Bride family. Ariel turned to Laura to answer the “do you need a wedding planner” question, and she and I have not only worked together, but we also party together. Speaking of parties, why don’t we revel in some of the OUTSTANDING offbeat weddings she’s helped orchestrated — Star Wars cakes, Muppets, dinosaurs, and generous offbeat discounts await…

“I understand that there is the option of not using a venue who has a required coordinator. I also understand that there are many wonderful venues who have amazing coordinators in their employ.

We showed you the first part of Chrissy & Danny’s mind-blowingly gorgeous double wedding in Thailand. Now here is the scoop on their second wedding at a hotel in London. In typical London fashion it was filled with high-tea and croquet.
Do you need a “day of” coordinator for your wedding, or can your mother-in-law’s friend take care of it for you?
