full wedding planning
starting at $5900.00
Our Full Planning package offers a complete ceremony and reception planning solution to couples whose busy schedules prevent them from dedicating the time necessary to design and execute the wedding of their dreams. Don't worry, you won't be relinquishing control of your wedding. We'll simply take care of every detail to your specifications, leaving you free to enjoy each moment of your engagement and wedding. This package includes everything in our Month-of Coordination and Partial Planning packages, plus:
Develop Wedding Concept.
Weddings are our life. Seriously. It's what we've chosen to do with our time, all the time. Who better to help you develop the perfect tone for your event? We'll sit down and talk with the two of you about what you love, what you hate, and how your dream wedding would unfold. Then we'll work with you to come up with a day that you and your guests will love.
Budget Development and Management.
Once you and your families have decided how much you're comfortable spending on your wedding, we'll sit down with you and figure out how best to allocate your resources. After we've established your spending priorities and come up with a plan, we'll help you stick to it! We don't like overspending any more than you do.
Act as Your Vendor Liaison.
Think of us as your personal assistants for all things wedding: We'll schedule all of your vendor meetings for you, so you don't even have to pick up a telephone. All you need to do is show up! We'll even come along to the meetings, if you like, so that we can take care of all the details for you. Once we've found the vendors you want, we'll deliver the contract to you for your signature, then deliver it back to the vendor with your payment. And after the contract is signed, we'll act as the point of contact between you and your vendors. We want to minimize the time you spend on the detail work, so you can get back to the business of being the blissful bride (or grinning groom)!
Assist with Wedding Attire Selection and Fittings.
We know you probably have friends and family who are looking forward to helping you pick out your dream dress or the perfect suit, so of course we won't insist on being a part of your shopping expeditions. But if you do need an extra pair of hands or an unbiased opinion, then we'll be happy to come along and do whatever you need us to. We're also available to assist you at your fittings.
Arrange Hotel Accommodations for Out-of-Town Guests.
Since we're already familiar with so many area hotels, let us find the most convenient lodging choices for your out-of-town guests. We'll come up with options in a few price ranges, and we'll have blocks of rooms created for your guests at the properties you like best.
Assist at Pre-Wedding Portrait Sessions.
We'll attend your pre-wedding portrait sessions with you and assist you with anything and everything. We'll drive you to your hair and makeup appointments, pick up your bouquet, carry your train, hold your jacket . . . Just let us know what you need!
We'll recommend sources for your wedding stationery that fit your budget and your style, and we'll help you find the invitation that sets the perfect tone and get the wording just right. We'll also help you find accompanying products that you love, like save-the-dates, maps, programs, menus, escort cards, and table cards. We can even design everything for you in-house, so that you'll have a suite of stationery products that are as unique as you are!
Welcome Bags, Favors, and Bathroom Baskets.
We'll come up with creative ideas for your favors and welcome bags, and we'll assemble them for you. We'll get the welcome bags to your out-of-town guests' hotel rooms for you, and we'll bring the favors to the reception and set them up. We'll also provide bathroom baskets containing both necessities and luxuries for your weddings guests to enjoy.
Stuff and Post Save-the-Dates and Invitations.
Simply provide us with the components of your save-the-dates and invitations, along with the proper postage, and we'll stuff and mail them for you. We'll also be happy to locate a calligrapher who fits your style and budget.
After your wedding invitations are mailed out, we'll keep track of the RSVPs as they come in and provide you with daily updates. If there are invitees who fail to reply by the specified date, then we'll tactfully contact them on your behalf to learn whether or not they plan to attend.
Transport Wedding Attire after Event.
Managing their wedding attire after the wedding is over is one detail many brides and grooms forget to address. Whether you're planning to change into a new outfit for your reception getaway or you're planning to wear your gown or suit to your wedding night location, we'll arrange to collect it and transport it to the post-wedding location you designate.
Return Rental Items.
We want you to leave your wedding feeling glowing and carefree, and we don't want your honeymoon marred with thoughts of mundane things like whether or not your wedding rental items were returned. If there are items that are not being picked up by the vendors from whom you've rented them, then we'll be happy to pack them up after the wedding and return them to your vendors ourselves. (Oversized items may be subject to an additional fee.)
