What do you love most about being a wedding planner?
The thing I love the most about being a wedding planner would have to be the fact that I am able to contribute to a bride’s special day and alleviate the stressful moments! It’s beautiful to know that the work I do lends to a better experience for a bride, both in the planning process as well as the actual wedding day itself. It’s refreshing to have a job where no two weddings, and therefore no two days are alike. Every day brings with it a fresh, new experience.
How did you get started?
I had event management experience in other realms, but realized there wasn’t much available to Torontonians when it came to specialized wedding planning. Thirteen years ago when I launched Let’s Party, I recall wedding magazines having to create a new “Wedding Planner” category when I requested advertising space. The need was there, and I was confident that I could introduce this as a specialized service. A part-time hobby experience quickly developed into a flourishing full-time Wedding Planning Company.
What budget range do you cater to?
We work with all budgets
What typically happens at the beginning of the process when someone contacts you?
At the beginning of the process, we customize a package to suit the needs and budget of each couple. We then move to the assessment stage, to understand what kind of “wedding shoppers” they are, and where their priorities lie. A budget is then created, enveloping every category of service which is to be booked, and allocating dedicated funds to each. A critical path is laid out, and the referral process begins. Each step is a building block towards the big day, so the assessment stage is crucial in really getting to know each couple and creating a day that is reflective of who they are, laying a strong foundation for the plans that will continue to develop.
My wife and I hired Leena from Let’s Party Consultants as our day-of-coordinator for our wedding this past summer. Working with her was simply fantastic! I am a wedding photographer and have been in the wedding industry for a decade. I was amazed by how much I didn’t know about what it takes to make a wedding run smoothly behind the scenes. Not only did she take the time to get to know us and provide much more support prior to the wedding than we thought we had paid for, but at every meeting, we had one or two “aha” moments of major things we simply had not thought about. She was always quick with unique solutions to our wacky ideas and made sure all the details ended up exactly where they should. On the day of the wedding, everything ran extremely smoothly and on schedule. We really didn’t even know she was there except when we needed her and she appeared like clockwork. I would definitely recommend her!
Client Testimonial 2
Thanks so much Leena… it really was a lot of fun and you really took the stress right out of everything! Everyone couldn’t believe how calm I was & that’s because of you. So thank you for that! The day truly was amazing and I’m so glad you were there to share it with us. I didn’t even really consider hiring a planner until I met you. The things you opened my eyes to, and the professional yet honest approach you had to planning our wedding really blew me away. You have no idea how much your advice was appreciated, and your hard work was valued.

What can I say – from the day I met you I knew you were the best choice for us. I can’t imagine how I would have planned this wedding without your guidance and your unwavering support. Every decision we made was an easy one, knowing we had you in our corner. Your attention to detail and your open communication with us made us completely feel at ease every step of the way. Thank you for making yourself so available to us. We never felt like clients, we always felt like we were sitting with a friend. I can’t believe how much time you spent meeting with us, how many of my crazy emails you replied to at all hours of the day and night, and how lovely you were to work with. Thank you for all you did for us.
