You do not want our assistance at every vendor meeting, but you want someone to ask questions to along the way. You would like an experienced sounding board, advice on what to do next and a professional planner on your side when you need her to ask questions, vent, approval on a vendor reputation, get a color opinion, ask how to make your layout better and/or just listen to you when people start calling you Bridezilla (we won’t).
• Unlimited email exchange and phone exchange (phone calls by appointment) throughout the couple’s planning.
• Two face-to-face meetings prior to the month of meeting at the ELLE DESIGNS studio. Additional meetings available for $300.00
All Month of Coordination services included in Right Hand Woman, also noted below.
• Meet 4-5 weeks prior to wedding date and go over all details. Here we can help you tie up any loose ends and offer any etiquette advice needed. We go over the timeline necessities and bring awareness to things missing, things you have yet to think about or mistakes along the way. We look at your layout and offer ideas, if wanted, to make things work a little better. We hear your idea and vision for the day so we can help you bring the rest of the planning together.
• 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. This is based off the meeting we have and the couple’s planning.
• Attend final walk-through with client to ensure everything has been thought of and to become more familiar with the flow of the day, the space and of course, you!
