When you dream about your wedding day, you envision the romance, the beautiful candlelight and flowers, the gorgeous guests in their fancy attire… you don’t think of the chaos, the questions, the hundreds of details that need to be arranged, coordinated, set up, taken down. You don’t consider who will help you execute the plans you’ve made, and who will step in to solve problems if the plans aren’t working out? Who will decorate? Who will pack up? Who can you trust to make sure your dreams become a reality?
As soon as your engagement takes place, the questions may begin to mount. It can get very overwhelming, really fast. Chances are, you’ve never planned an event this large before, so the smartest thing you can do is hire someone that has been there, done that; hundreds of times. Someone that can guide you through the planning process, becoming your friend, helping to design an event reflective of you, your fiancé, and your relationship. We want guests to leave your wedding knowing more about your love story. We want every guest to tell you that your wedding was the best they’ve ever attended… and we want them to mean it.
No matter how long you’ve been planning or how much you have done, the first time you chat with Proud to Plan, you’ll feel instant relief knowing your wedding is in excellent hands.
The first consult is totally free; we run through your plans and ideas and figure out where you need help. Our packages are affordable and easy to customize. We’ve created an easy approach to wedding planning and you’ll enjoy every minute of it!
Our signature system is effective, efficient and fun- we’re here to help, not take over, and we’ll think of things you’ve never considered, way ahead of time. Who wants to make decisions and answer questions on their wedding day? We get all that stuff decided on ahead of time, so your wedding day can be a fun, carefree party!

The Best of the Best!! Proud to Plan will exceed expectations!
Sent on 08/13/2019
We feel our wedding was as close to a fairy tale as them come, and that we owe so much of the smooth sailing to Erin and her fabulous team! We are overwhelmed with gratitude for having Erin by our side throughout the process and specifically on our wedding day. I think what I really admired and enjoyed about working with Erin was how I not only felt 100% confident and trusting of her and her team because they were ALWAYS so on it, but I really felt like I had a best friend in Erin walking us through the rehearsal and wedding day trying to keep all of us in line! Erin made everything so incredibly personal and it really shined. She always kept a big smile on her face and she was so great at directing us when needed and keeping us calm and collected when those unexpected moments happened. Courtney was also incredibly kind and patient throughout the day. She helped us stay on our timeline as much as we could and lended a hand with any little thing. We also had a big surprise duet planned, and Erin and her team effortlessly helped us make it a surprise success! We knew it would mean so much to our parents especially and were so thrilled that it went off without a hitch. Our guests are still talking about it. Proud to Plan was THE best investment we could have made for our wedding day! Recommended 1000x over! Erin Proud is a ROCK STAR!

Proud to Plan is the Best
Let me start by saying that we were very hesitant about investing in a wedding planner...did we really need one? Well now that we look back on our wedding day, I can’t express how grateful we were to have one and most importantly that we chose Proud to Plan. We spoke to a few planners but Proud to Plan came highly recommended and was a clear winner for us.Sent on 04/14/2019
From our first conversation, we immediately felt a connection with Erin. We bonded over sports and music and knew she and her team would work well with our vendors, which was very important to us as well. Erin and Shannon gave us a lot of amazing suggestions and thought of literally everything possible, many of which we would never have thought of. They were beyond organized and went through every possible detail on our calls leading up to our wedding. On our wedding day, the team truly took the lead and made sure everything ran perfectly. My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy every moment of our special day while Shannon, Erin and the team took care of any snafus that arose. They made sure our drinks were always filled and we were ok, our VIPs were taken care of, and all our vendors were in order and synchronized.
Proud to Plan is truly a well-oiled machine of professional planners. They listened to us, worked exactly with our wedding vision, and were there throughout our day with their bag of tricks and binder making sure everything was perfect and so that we could enjoy everything, and thanks to Proud to Plan it was. We would recommend them 100 times over and are so thankful we chose them, they were well worth the investment! Thank you guys!!!!

Erin and her team are amazing!
When I first got engaged my mom said "Allison I want to give you a gift of a wedding planner at least for the day of the wedding." I said I really didn't think it was necessary as my Mom and I are pretty organized and detailed oriented people. Well let me tell you I am so thankful she did and I am even more thankful it was Erin Proud! When I say this is one bad to the bone boss lady that's an understatement! She was absolutely amazing to work with from the beginning to end! A ton of positive energy, super responsive, so organized, and really just cared from the minute I met her. The day of the wedding she had Shannon and Courtney helping her, they were such a bonus and kept checking to see if myself, husband, and anyone in the bridal party needed anything. I didn't have to deal with anything the day of the wedding. Erin and her team knew exactly what we wanted and executed it perfectly if there were any minor hiccups I didn't even know about it. Also they decorated the backdrop of our ceremony and the fireplace to perfection. I can't thank Erin and her team enough for helping to make our wedding day the BEST DAY EVER!Sent on 11/19/2018
Erin and her team are amazing. Their attention to detail, organization and talent make them a dream for vendors and clients alike. We have done several weddings with Proud to Plan and they are always smooth, beautiful and lots of fun.
Every event that Proud to Plan has worked on with us has been flawless, beautiful and incredibly well-managed. Erin and every member of her team have the highest standards when it comes to the pre-event planning, day-of coordination, design and management of weddings. They have positive energy- work well under pressure, are accessible to all onsite and get the job done! AND they make their clients feel at ease every step of the way.
My company has worked with Erin and many members of her team for years. Not only are they the most professional event planning company in the northeast imho but they are a lot of fun to be around. You cannot go wrong with this company.
