WE HEAR YOU WANT TO HAVE A PARTY!

AND NOT JUST ANY PARTY, BUT THE WEDDING TO END ALL WEDDINGS!

WELL, YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.

 

 

 

While we do appreciate that every client may have a different set of needs,

we have found that all of our couples want the same thing in the end - a fabulous wedding!

Because of this, we have done away with the typical offerings that you may see elsewhere such as “wedding day only

or partial planning” and prefer to have our clients think about their wedding in PHASES instead.

 

 

Our 5 phases break down like this:

ONE | ORGANIZATION

 

We call this part the dream vs the reality - think budgets, guest lists and calendar tasks. Let’s face it; wedding are expensive, both financially and emotionally.  You get one chance to make it perfect and with an overwhelming amount of tasks that need to be completed it just makes sense to have someone on your side from the beginning.

 

HIGHLIGHTS  INCLUDE

  • Guest list discussion and management
  • Budget preparation, allocation and management
  • Preparation and maintaining a planning schedule
  • Access to online planning system
  • Monthly remainders relating to all tasks and to-dos

TWO | PROCUREMENT

 

This is where your planning gets real and we start to assemble your all-star vendor team.  We will match you with the best people in the city and beyond in order to meet your style, vision and budget.  The difference with our company is that we focus on experience, trust  and innovation, not formula or imitation.  And our approach is simple, listen to you and build a vendor team based on your needs and wants.

 

HIGHLIGHTS  INCLUDE

  • Wedding theme discussion to ensure vendors align to overall vision
  • Vendor procurement for initial planning areas (ceremony & Reception venue, photography, videography and attire)
  • Vendor procurement for secondary planning areas (all music requirements, baker, transportation and hair and make up)
  • Attending vendor appointments with client
  • Contract review for all vendors

THREE | DESIGN

 

The days of tulle & ivy are far behind us (thank goodness!) so let us pull together the look and feel of your wedding with all that is fresh, inventive and you. It might be our keen eye for detail or simply our creative genes. Whatever the case may be, we like things pretty.  We help design your wedding storyboard, theme, colours and then hunt down everything you need to execute your creative vision.

 

 

HIGHLIGHTS  INCLUDE

  • Full development of wedding theme
  • Vendor procurement for stationery, florals, and decor items
  • Floor plan generation after discussing room layout, equipment needs, lighting and rentals
  • Tablescape design, place settings, china, stemware, service plates and candles
  •  Storyboard of all design concepts

FOUR | MANAGEMENT

 

If you have an OCD or Type A bone in your body you will love this phase.  And if the design phase is the pretty details, think of this one as all the other dirty, rotten, tedious (but oh so important!) details. This is why your wedding is going to run like clockwork because we make sure your ducks are all in a row!

 

HIGHLIGHTS  INCLUDE

  • Assistance with wedding website regarding accommodations and transportation
  • Rehearsal planning
  • Final number management with regards to catering, bar, and all rentals
  • Checklist of day-of items (favours, guest book, cake knife, ring pillow, etc)
  • Venue walk through

FIVE | CURTAIN CALL

 

Wear a watch to your own wedding? No thanks. Do you really want to spend your most important day worrying about where the cake is or if your flowers will make it to the church on time or why there are only 75 napkins when there is supposed to be 175 or... you get the point.  As your wedding day insurance team, let us worry about the details.  It's what we do.

HIGHLIGHTS  INCLUDE

  • Two pre-wedding consultations
  • Day-of timeline construction and execution,  timeline finalization & wedding coordination
  • Supervision of rehearsal, wedding set-up and vendor arrivals
  • Ensure reception hall is set up to clients' specification
  • On-site direction of wedding ceremony and reception
