About CharLena

Writer and Founder of Budget Wedding NYC and the Wedding Cake Taste-Off, CharLena, The (Intuitive) Wedding Strategist for NYC, offers one-on-one Conscious Engagement  get to your authentic self BEFORE even before you start wedding planning the budget conscious way.  (See Services tab.) Besides wedding strategies Ms. Pearson-Fulcher offers Solo work (see CharLena Sings tab) and continues to educate and enlighten as host of two radio shows on www.BlogTalkRadio.com, also via one-on-ones as we get to your authentic self BEFORE you start planning your wedding.

Don’t let anyone deter you from your wedding planning with budget restraints, it can be done, and here in New York City.  I know you’ve been told otherwise, because we were when were planning ours, but it can be done.  The two radio shows include: The bi-weekly show demonstrates budget conscious wedding planning and the weekly midnight show allows you to release your wedding planning stress through meditation.

Additionally, CharLena has created wedding planning modules for teleseminars, webinars and consultancy to alleviate confusion during the planning process.  (See classes tab.)  As well as books, courses and events. CharLena’s information all started based on her own planning for her NYC wedding as an outpouring through her book:  New York City Budget Weddings:  Elegant and Affordable.  There are some pretty fun competitions, too.  The Wedding Cake Taste-Off for bakers contests for Wedding Cake Toppers for the bride & groom (co-sponsored by My Memory Dolls) and discounts on bow ties and regular length ties (Bows-N-Ties.com).

You can find her tips: BlogTalkRadio.com/Budget-Weddings-NYC, as mentioned above and Midnight Meditation with CharLena and her weekly newsletter, Budget Weddings NYC which you can sign up for on the right and receive the 7 Most Important Wedding Questions Special Report just for signing up.

Professional Meditation Practitioners guide us through meditation on the Saturday morning at midnight after the first Friday of each month.  CharLena guides you on the other Fridays via various meditation practices.  Won’t you join us as we ‘Release-the-Week’ on Midnight Meditation with CharLena each Saturday morning.  If you’re not up then, catch up via the archives.

She now offers One-on-One phone strategies, plus additional assistance. (See her Services tab) for details and call for pricing:  917 5478 4870 or email her cpf@budgetweddingsnyc.com.

Look for her books:  Wedding Cake:  From Frosting to CrumbsCreating Your New York Wedding in 8 Months or Less, and New York City Budget Honeymoons for $900 or Less on various eReaders and in print.

That’s just a list of what she’s done and will do in the near future, but who is CharLena, really?

CharLena is known for her Wedding Strategies, but also as ”The NYC Budget Wedding Woman”. She can and has found some of the best locations in New York City’s five boroughs for getting married, while still staying within your budget. All of which is in the original book:  New York City Budget Weddings: Elegant and Affordable.

CharLena is a believer in divining what is her client’s desires and then going after it, which in the so-called “real world” is defined as being risky.  She feels blessed to be alive in this day and age while fully expecting to achieve what she desires, because she knows dreamers with intention can.  CharLena often says “Life in New York City feels like a house running on jet fuel, breaking up rocks (challenges) along the way.”  With determination and inner belief as her guide, she knows she can, does and will find the best within anyone’s budget to wed here, because she’s done it in the past and always will.  She feels blessed to continue sharing her knowledge with you.  That’s her reality, what’s yours?

    Sometime you have to just go with your heart, after all it is your and fiance’s wedding. And if most people understood then you’re the winner.

    The grandmothers’ may not have understood it, but I bet they saw how happy you both were and joined in the fun and merriment anyway. Congratulations to you both!
