Full Wedding Planning 

We understand that hiring a wedding planner is no easy task. An overwhelming number of wedding planners and coordinators pop up on Google, and there are plenty of differences in their services. Some spout specialties, like destination wedding planning, while others list what’s included in wedding planning packages tiered by price. Many tout their experience, noting the number of weddings or a variety of locations where we have hosted events.

 

The biggest issue that planners and couples face is that pricing. Cheaper isn’t necessarily better, and just because two pros say they offer full-service wedding planning doesn’t mean that we offer all the same services. For some planners, full-service means a few hours of planning help; for others, that number can reach 1,000-plus hours of work to pull off your big day. You can’t blanket compare the costs of two pros without understanding what exactly is included in their interpretation of “full service.” To help you get a start, below is what full-service wedding planning really means.  

Full-service wedding planning includes help hiring vendors, from the venue to officiants to bridal stylists.

Whether or not you have a venue or vendors in mind, our full-service wedding planner will help you book every professional you need for your dream day. We’ll likely point out vendors that you never even thought about, such as a glassware rental company to a company that would steam your dress.  Even if you’ve already found your venue, as your planner, we will be there to manage the conversations between you and that venue, negotiating rates for things like catering and confirming the timeline to ensure everything goes smoothly. We include site inspections under the umbrella of hiring vendors, which means we are on the ground checking out the space and noting any potential logistical issues before you make a final booking. We also can serve as event designers and producers; we can conceptualize the look and feel of your day and then organize the means to build out the vision.

 

It’s about more than the décor.

Couples tend to mistake wedding décor for all that a planner does, but it’s really the unseen details that matter most. Successful wedding planning is about more than just the pretty; it’s about the process and the work we do together. We keep your event running on time, put out fires you didn’t even know started, manage small situations like adjusting the room temperature, and function as the mediator between you and everyone. You should enjoy your wedding day, not worry about the bartender running out of ice. Full-service planning means anticipating your every need and educating you on the options to create something that speaks to who you are.

 

Full-service wedding planning encompasses every guest’s experience.

We’ll also ensure your guests will all have a memorable experience. We’ll brainstorm interactive moments to keep your guests entertained while you take photographs, manage the ease of RSVPs, and have your welcome bags delivered to every guest room at the hotel—any touch point that a guest has during your wedding planning process, and celebration will be addressed. It’s really thoughtful to all the details, large and small, for ‘every’ guest's experience.

 

It’s a long journey with a lot of emotions along the way, and having someone talented and fun on your side is crucial.” As your planner, I will serve as your wedding guru!
