AFTER YOU SAY YES, BUT BEFORE YOU SAY I DO!
Each bride is different and has different needs for their wedding day. We offer three levels of planning based on your availability and capability before you say “I Do!” If you are not sure which package is best suited for you please schedule an introductory consultation to pinpoint your specific needs.
Premium Wedding Planning Package – best suited for the bride who wants assistance creating her signature wedding to include full wedding planning plus event design.
The premium wedding planning package is a full scale professional service that designs a signature wedding based on your vision of this once in a lifetime event. The premium wedding package includes the full service wedding planning package plus complete event design and coordination.
Full Service Wedding Planning Package – best suited for the bride who wants personal assistance planning every detail of her wedding from concept to execution.
The full service wedding planning package is designed to allow you to be a guest at your own wedding. We take the stress out of your wedding day. We will begin with an initial budget consultation, refer vendors, review and negotiate contracts, prepare a timeline, assist with your printed materials, manage your vendors, coordinate the ceremony rehearsal and manage all the details on the wedding day from set-up to breakdown.
Day of Wedding Coordination – best suited for the bride who wants to plan all the logistics and turn over the final details to a professional the month of her wedding.
A wedding day coordinator steps in the month of the wedding to take over the details so you can relax and enjoy the moments leading up to your big day. At your initial consultation we will begin by recommending vendors to ensure that you have the best team possible for a stress free wedding day. At the end of your consultation you will walk away with a checklist of tasks to complete. At the 4 month marker we will meet again with contracts in hand for a detailed planning meeting to piece together a wedding timeline for your big day. In the final month we will communicate with all your vendors and review timeline details and contact information with each one. We will conduct your rehearsal and your wedding logistics from start to finish.
