Event Planning Services

We offer four types of wedding planning packages. These packages consist of:

1.) Consulting

Consulting packages are billed by the hour with a 1 hour minimum, and consist of the client sitting down with our wedding planner and asking questions based on the area or areas they need help in. This may be anything from pulling together design ideas, confirming or suggesting vendors, hotels or venue choices, or ensuring that the client is well informed, on track, and has not forgotten anything. These types of meetings typically take place early in the planning process. Consulting $60 per hour

2.) Day of Coordination

Day of Coordination is for the bride who wants full responsibility for planning her own wedding, but could still use a helping hand on wedding day to ensure that her vision becomes a reality. Although this package is typically booked well in advance of the wedding date, the wedding planner does not actually get involved until 1-2 weeks prior to wedding day. We will help create a detailed timeline, contact the vendors for formal introductions, check timelines confirming day of contact information and review copies of all contracts to clarify all contractual obligations of all vendors. After discussing the client’s vision for their ceremony, the wedding planner will also be in charge of running the wedding rehearsal. During the ceremony and reception the wedding planner’s responsibility is to ensure everything runs smoothly. On the day of the wedding, the wedding planner will be present at the venue and ensure every detail is set up the way the client has envisioned it. We will also be the liaison between the bride and the vendors for the day. This greatly relieves the bride of unnecessary stress Our basic Day of Coordination package typically runs at $500.00 which includes up to 4 hours of on site time at the venue on the wedding day. $175.00 for each additional hour over 4 hours. Any additional fees for things like attending vendor or venue appointments with the bride, or transporting the bride to appointments or vendors, will be billed separately at the $60.00 per hour consulting fee in addition to the Day of Coordination fee.
