We believe that the only wrong thing to do is not hire professional help in planning.

To be real (and we’re always straight-shooters) -- there are so many things that go into the wedding day that you didn’t know you needed to be thinking about.
 
Sure, you could piece together an ad-hoc checklist and planning timeline based on random online articles found through the Pinterest black hole or Instagram vortex. 
 
Hours wasted when you could’ve been celebrating with your partner? 
...and how many of those online wedding resources are created by the same wedding industry that perpetuates traditional gender norms? 
 
Yikes. 
We’re already stressed just thinking about it.
 

Here's why we exist.

THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG WAY TO DO YOUR WEDDING.

The Privilege is Mine is centered around the idea that wedding planning does not need to be intimidating or traditional, but rather celebrating the alternative and thinking outside the standard. We believe in compassion, creativity, collaboration, and a touch of edge. 
 

 
 

 


 
 
 

It would be our privilege.

As the TPIM brand has grown, we’ve expanded our team over the last few years.

Our mission, vibe, and energy is trained into all of our associates.

No matter who you work with on the squad, you are working with creative, collaborative and communicative women who believe in the *stress-less* approach to wedding planning, who like to get down on the dance floor, and will be there by your side as your advocates, routing you on every step of the way. In short, we got your back.
