If you are a couple who wants to enjoy the planning, but wants a professional to keep you up to date on the timeline, tell you what to do next, where to go for this or that, and to hold your hand throughout the entire planning time, this is for you. This package is for those who want to make their arrangements with a professional by their side handling some-to-most of the crazy behind-the scenes logistics, but do not need all of the full planning services.

•    Recommendation of venues and vendors to contact in your style and budget. 
•    Two visits to venue locations (within a 50-mile radius of Baltimore included) for initial visit & final walk through. 
•    Attendance at 3 vendor meetings with the couple (normally caterer tasting, floral, venue walk through). Additional meetings can be scheduled if needed 
•    Unlimited contact: meetings phone and e-mail. Face-to-face meetings & phone calls must be scheduled in advance. 
•    A personalized timeline of what to do in which month so you can always stay on pace. 
•    We are checking in every few weeks to ensure you are on schedule and keeping you up to date. with what to do next in the planning timeline. We want to ensure you know what to do when, which vendors need to be booked right away and which ones can (or should) wait. We want to be sure we are relieving the stress off the bride and the family so they know exactly what they should be doing.

•    Advise you on menu planning & flow and attend tasting with caterer.
•    Reviewing of all contracts and contacting vendors to ensure everything is scheduled and noted correctly. For some vendors, we prefer to the contracts for you since we have accounts with them and work with them all the time. We know what those vendors are looking for, what should be on the contract, and scheduling with them. 
•    Production of Master Timeline Wedding Packet which includes a timeline for each vendor, the wedding party, all layouts for plan A and plan B’s, vendor lists, directions to the venue, and more. Our Wedding Packets are copyrighted and take about 40+ working hours to produce and are tweaked weekly with new changes. 
•    Coordinate and drop off hotel welcome boxes for guests.
