Includes putting together a timeline for your event as well as 2 hours of coordination: directing the staff, alerting speakers for their toasts, and making sure everything goes as planned. If the wedding day is the next day, keep in mind our day is much longer than yours, so we ask to leave at a respectable hour or have our assistant take over for rental pick up, etc. Please note: Less intimate affairs with production, tenting, or a complicated set up will require extra labor & fees.
Set Up & Extra Labor | Hotel Bag assembly
$300.00 per staff member needed, per 6 hours. With all of our packages, each planner has countless items to accomplish on her own checklist to ensure your wedding is a success. We are more than happy to help set up larger projects at your wedding with your own décor, centerpieces, D.I.Y. projects and more, however, please understand that we will need to bring extra staff in order to get everything done. In order to make sure we have enough staff to do our normal day of coordination as well as set up your larger projects, extra assistants and possibly renting u-hauls for transportation needs to be discussed weeks in advance. Renting transportation is based on local pricing.
What is the 10% Production Fee: Currently waived in all packages or the Pandemic
This production fee is added to any vendors EED has a hand in producing and directing. Tenting, rentals, lounge furniture, coordinating hotels & management of any vendors. Our time and devotion to each small detail is just as important to us as the big details, and we spend countless hours making sure every one is in place, every layout is perfected, every vendor order is exact and this is what the production fee covers. Items like your dress, makeup and personal items are not part of this fee. The flat fee is for planning & design time, full staff & your planner’s day of (or days in advance of) management as well as unlimited meetings-emails-phone calls.
Many planners ask for a 10% - 30%+ of your total budget spent, and we do not feel this is fair which it is why we add only an 10% production fee with only vendors/venues we are helping to produce.The production fee ensures our time is valued properly because as you will see, we work extremely hard for you.

EED & Charities
EED donates a % of each wedding to a local non-kill animal shelter. At the end of every year, we use those saved funds to purchase countless bags off of the shelter’s wish list and deliver it to them. This is one of our favorite times of the year! We also donate to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and the ASPCA on a monthly-giving basis
