Our Boss is a BADAZZZ!

If you’ve ever met our Founder and Lead Dream Maker, Tammy Waterman, you know exactly what we are talking about.

She is one of 48 Master Wedding Planners in the World and a member of the Association of Bridal Consultants since 2004. But she has been planning Tampa Bay weddings for 17 years!


Expert Advice: MMTB – How A Wedding Planner Saves You Money

Recently, Tammy was featured in the Marry Me Tampa Bay article ‘How A Wedding Planner Saves You Money.

One of our favorite quotes from Tammy in the article is:

A wedding planner can work with a couple to prioritize what is important to them and create a realistic working budget that looks at those priorities. BUT, nothing is stopping a couple from splurging on something that can blow the budget.  A prime sample is referring a couple to a wedding pro who is well within their budget for services. The couple can still go way overboard, adding in upgrades and additional services.



Expert Advice: MMTB – Planning A Summer Wedding In Florida

Marry Me Tampa Bay once again came to Tammy again for their Expert Advice series “What to Know About Planning a Summer Wedding in Florida.” 

Tammy shared her advice regarding selecting a location, attire, hair, and makeup as well as possibly inflated vacation season costs.

Florida is hot in the summer, like chill out in the AC and in the pool hot! So we really urge couples considering a Florida wedding in the summer to look at an indoor wedding venue with floor-to-ceiling windows and great views. Your family and friends will thank you later!


Wedding Planner Magazine

Wedding Planner Magazine is a wedding industry publication for wedding professionals. Tammy’s article “ Taking Control of the Chaos in 2021” is featured in the current issue.

We know that Florida has been pretty fortunate. We have been doing weddings, with limitations, for a good portion of the last year. Tammy’s advice on navigating the local restrictions, design for social distancing, and keeping wedding guests safe has been HUGE for wedding pros in states just starting to reopen.

Not only did the magazine feature her expert advice, but they also included some fantastic images from Sara and Noah’s Tampa wedding. Be sure to check out their wedding on our blog post – “Celebrating In Tampa While Socially Distant.”

Our Special Moments Event Planning team loves sharing our couple’s real weddings, wedding venues that are hidden gems, and great planning tips.

But, every once in a while, we need to share just how incredible our fearless leader is. Tammy Waterman is one of those people who hates being in the spotlight. But, we also know that the support of the local industry and wedding pros in Tampa Bay is what makes Special Moments Event Planning so special.
