It’s time to take the work out of wedding planning!
At first it was exciting, pinning pretty pictures on Pinterest but now it’s time to do “all the things” and you are screaming…
"Where the heck do I start?!"
Here you are; top knot up top, pj pants on, settled on the couch after a long day, ready to tackle the wedding to do list. And you realize this wedding thing that was supposed to be fun... is starting to feel a lot like work.
It hurts my heart when couples tell me they just want it all to be over, meaning the wedding planning. I love planning weddings, it’s supposed to be fun! No one said it was going to be easy, but it should be as effortless and stress-free as it possibly can. That’s where The Wed Life comes in.
The Wed Life Challenge is an innovative and interactive approach to the wedding planning process that is anything but common and conventional. Working alongside your partner, you will participate in a virtual game, completing challenges, overcoming obstacles, reaping rewards and working together for the grand prize; planning your own incredible wedding.

the key to our sanity
"Having a professional guide us through the process really was the key to our sanity. Since neither of us were much into weddings, just about everything you suggested was an "ah ha" moment for us. Working with you was the BEST thing we could have done for ourselves and our wedding"
- Mirey + Pat
"Shannon helped make our day absolutely amazing! She was incredible from the entire year and a half of planning, to the rehearsal, to our wedding day! She made our day run so smoothly and made it so stress free for us! She is so much fun and absolutely worth every penny! I would recommend Shannon a million times over!!"
- Laura + Matt
"I honestly had no idea what I was doing and everything you told us and provided us with was invaluable!! You made our wedding run so smooth and took every ounce of stress away. Your checklists were amazing! Every person we talked to afterward said something about how organized everything was! I am so glad we found you. I probably would have lost my $#*! on a million things if we hadn't!"
- Tonia + Jordan

How much does it cost?
The Wed Life Challenge was created to help couples reduce the stress and tame the chaos while planning their wedding. I didn't want only the big budget weddings to have access to a wedding planner. So I'm making my step by step program available for everyone!
Hiring a professional wedding planner can cost over $5000 but your investment is....
Frequently Asked Questions
+ Our wedding is already costly and time-consuming; why do we need this Challenge?
You’re absolutely right. Your time is valuable, so I have honed in the wedding planning process for you. Getting focused from the get-go and benefitting from my years of experience will save you from making costly mistakes both time and money-wise. Also, with the discounts alone, it really pays for itself and then some ;)
+ With all of the free wedding tools online, why should we pay for help with our wedding?
The amount of information available for wedding planning is vast. In fact, it’s a bit daunting and overwhelming, which is exactly why I designed this Challenge, for couples just like you. I have spent years sifting through all of the resources available online, carefully curating, testing and creating my own systems, now I’m passing my knowledge to you. You will save time, money, energy, and a whole lot of headaches with this Challenge!
+ What value does the Challenge offer us and our wedding?
There are many things money can buy, but one of the things it can’t, is experience. Regardless of your reasons for participating in the Challenge, having the guidance and support of a seasoned and experienced wedding planner (such as yours truly!) will more than benefit your wedding. You will have access to assistance with your plan, an exclusive society with resources and advice, access to discounts and much more. The proof is in the pudding, and with my extensive wedding experience, you can learn from a true professional - not simply another digital download!
+ How long will the Challenge take us to complete?
The Challenge has been designed specifically with you in mind, which makes it perfect for couples planning their wedding! The approach is self-paced, meaning you can complete the Challenges and work through each step at your own pace. No deadlines, no strict timelines, no cut-offs. What it will do with your time, is catapult you forward and cut out an amazing amount of research time on your part. So binge watch in a few days or over a few months as you plan, it's up to you!
+ What is included in the price of the Challenge?
The cost of The Wed Life Challenge includes 9 levels with all encompassing video modules, resources and information for each section, group calls with me (your trusty Game Master) and access to our exclusive Wed Life Society. You’ll also benefit from the prizes (ie. $100's of dollars in discounts) you unlock throughout your journey!
+ What if I’m not satisfied with the Challenge?
Though we know you’ll absolutely love The Wed Life Challenge - and all of the amazing resources and benefits it has to offer - we offer a money-back guarantee in the event that you are not happy. We provide a 30-day money back guarantee with a full refund; all you have to do is contact us!
+ Do you offer a payment plan?
You bet! I wanted to make this course affordable for everyone. Choose either the one-time fee option or make 3 easy installments!
Who am I anyway?!
Hey I'm Shannon, wedding planner extraordinaire and your game master. I live life in a happy little bubble and feel that planning your wedding shouldn't be a stressful situation but rather something you actually enjoy. Imagine that! I love a good party, sweet treats (chocolate almonds are my fav) reality tv, my hubby, kidlets and cuddly little animals. I also have a wee bit of a competitive side so I've joined my love of planning weddings with the fun of game nights to create The Wed Life Challenge. Sound like your jam? Meet me at the starting line, I'll be waiting!
