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!

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!

Erin & Proud to Plan team are amazing!!!
Erin and team are amazing! She was able to create a dream wedding for us and we are so happy that we had Erin helping us to spearhead the wedding.
Erin is sharp, on top of everything, and so wonderful to work with! We had several meetings leading up to the wedding, and Erin was instrumental in coming up with great ideas, and letting us know what we needed to prioritize. However, the week of the wedding is when she really helped us pull together the beautiful fall wedding we dreamed about! With last minute changes, Erin handled everything like a dream, kept us on track, and executed a flawless wedding that our family/friends are still raving about! Erin is a badass and we couldn't have imagined our wedding day without her!

Such an amazing team!
Working with Erin was one of the best choices we made for our wedding day!! Erin was 100% on top of every detail from the day we signed the contract and it took SO much stress off knowing a professional was handling all the details.
We referenced Proud to Plan’s planning packet throughout the whole process. Timeline? In the packet. Tipping questions? In the packet! Not that I didn’t email Erin on a regular basis! :D Once we got closer to the wedding I sat down with Erin once in person and then my fiancé and I had two Google Hangouts for the last planning meetings. It was really nice to work with people tech savvy enough to not have any issues with this - especially since we were planning from CA. Soon after our meetings Erin would have updated her master sheet with all the new details and highlight everything we still had open. It was so helpful!
Now for day of. Total godsend. Erin n and her two assistants Stephanie and Shannon were totally on it. One assistant was dedicated just to me and my fiancé, one was dedicated to rental deliveries, and Erin was there overseeing everyone. We still laugh that Stephanie never said a word about it but just had two umbrellas hanging on her arm for our entire photo session (so hours) just in case. But it just shows you how prepared they are!
Book Erin and her team. They are amazing and will make your life so much easier and do a stellar job!
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.
