Ariana Simms, of Aisle Be with You, is an absolute joy to work with. Her attention to details create seamlessly organized and executed events that are beautiful and full of personalized attention to her client’s individual style and personality. Marianne’s Rentals is honored to be one of her trusted partners and has been privileged to be a part of her significant growth and success in the Oklahoma market over the last several years.

Here are a few things she had to say to us about her business along with some photos showcasing her versatile design abilities!

 

What do you love about working in the event industry?

As a wedding designer and planner, I love being able to take my clients’ vision and turn it into reality. Also, when you are working on such a personal event, you truly create amazing bonds with the families and vendors involved in the process.  

 

Describe your relationship with Marianne’s Rentals.

Marianne’s Rentals has been a key element to our success in the wedding industry because they have been at all our large productions. I know that I never have to worry about the small details because they have us covered. Also, they are great with communication in regards to set up, layouts, tear down, etc. I have formed amazing relationships with their staff members, and they always go above and beyond to help find a solution to any challenges we may come across. I feel strongly about working with vendors who support your success, and I believe they are at the top of the list for this.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am certified as an International Wedding Planning Professional and my degree is in Interior Design which has been a huge benefit for doing sketches, color theory, layouts, etc.

 

Client’s always want to know about the budget, what would you tell them about the cost and value of booking your service?

It is very important to let the client know the level of your experience in the wedding industry. My goal is to make sure they “value” the quality of the service versus the quantity. There are several wonderful wedding planners in the wedding industry, but depending on the event you want to host for your guest to experience, please make sure you have done your research in advance. Is that planner equipped with the knowledge for the event you are wanting to have? Do they know the extra fees involved in some of those elements. Education is huge in knowing all of those elements and being able to be successful and confident in the work you are putting out to attract the ideal clients. Another major point we try to tell our clients is that we work very closely with our vendors that we have great relationships with. We will work the extra mile for those that go the extra mile for our clients.

How did you get started in this business?

I began my company in November of 2010. The first few years I spent time grasping the planning and coordinating side to wedding planning. Now the last several years, I have thoroughly enjoyed defining the “Aisle Be With You” brand and getting to be more design involved with the weddings we produce. We never want our weddings to be one specific look. As designers we want to show our clients that we can bring any vision to life, however we are a huge fan of details and flowers ☺ A pretty napkin can go a long way!

What else would you like our readers to know about you?

I would love for readers to know that at Aisle Be With You, our clients are not just another bride that comes and goes, they become family. We value every single one whether their wedding has smaller budget or endless. We love walking away knowing that they had the best day ever, and we are honored to have been a part of the most important day of their lives. We care so much about the small things that we want them to know it is 100% fully handled from start to finish. At Aisle Be With You, we aim to make you feel like our only one and we want to have an enjoyable process while we plan the most magical day! We are educated, confident, and professional in all aspects of our field. You never have to worry about a thing, because I can promise, we have you covered!
