Planning the most important celebration of your lifetime can be a daunting experience, and the sheer number of details involved in bringing your vision to life can be overwhelming. Preparing for a wedding takes not only time but impeccable planning and logistical skills. Often times a couple "may not know what they don't know" about wedding planning, and with already busy lives they prioritize a professional to lead the team. While you may feel planning your wedding will be fun, you may be relieved that you are not dealing with the stress of coordinating each and every detail. Expect your professional planner to be by your side throughout planning and on the wedding day itself, working with your venue, vendors, guests and wedding party to make sure the day runs smoothly and on schedule.
Our first consultation meeting sets the ground work for the success of your wedding event. At this meeting we will ask important questions of the couple, individually and together, in order to learn the key elements that best reflect our clients’ needs and aspirations. This meeting is preferable in person, but can also take place over zoom if travel distance prohibits. We will take the time to get to know you both, understand your personalities, requirements, initial ideas and overall expectations. Some of the many discussion points during our meeting include:
From here we will provide you with our full proposal, including a consultation overview, projected costs and our detailed design and production fee.
Upon approval of our proposal, and with contracts signed YOU will begin to relax, and WE will get to work planning your dream wedding. We continue to collaborate with you closely in order to refine our original ideas into a fully formed concept. Once you have agreed on a design concept we will begin recommending creative partners who support your vision and budget. Creating your “wedding team” is vitally important and must be the first task to accomplish. After the entire team is in place you can exhale and allow yourself to be excited as the vision begins to take shape. At every step of the way, our clients are completely in charge. This is YOUR wedding, not ours. We are here to advise, design and produce with our wealth of knowledge, experience and professional contacts.
Here is a small list of the areas that we cover during the planning and design phase:
First and foremost, it is a wedding planner’s job to expect the unexpected. As we move towards the finish line, we anticipate and plan ahead for any potential glitch in order to execute your perfect event. The hundreds of hours that have already gone into the planning and design phase are now ready for execution. At this stage we are confident that all the details are sorted and ready to be brought to life on your wedding day.
On the day of your wedding our team will be as busy and as excited as ever, setting up and managing the whole day on your behalf.
