I can't believe my first wedding season is over! It's been a whirlwind and I fell even more in love with this business. I have learned so much and I can't wait to apply what I've learned to improve my packages and my brides' experience.
The biggest thing I've learned this year is that my passion in this business lies in design. I love putting together an event design board, sourcing the decor, creating ceremony and reception layouts, and tying everything together with a cohesive invitation suite. My favorite part of my job is creating the details and thinking of ways to make your day unique and memorable for both you (my brides!) and your guests. These details are what makes my business unique and I've decided to embrace them an offer them to all my brides!
Starting with any new brides, going forward all my packages will include a design package. I went back and forth about changing my packages, but I finally decided that I started my business to do what I love, and that includes event design every single time. I want to offer every single bride an amazing experience filled full of my best work and I've learned that I need to include design to do that. It's scary to change my packages, especially to a system that's not as standard throughout the industry, but I'm so excited about this change! I wanted to share more about my new structure and answer some questions that might come up!
What packages are you offering?
Going forward I will be offering two packages: Wedding Design, Coordination and Execution AND Full Service Planning, Coordination, and Design. Full service will stay the same! I will work with the bride from the time that my contract is signed to source every detail, design the entire event, and make sure the day runs smoothly. My new package takes my day of package and adds in event design! I'll help you narrow down your vision, help you source decor, florals, and rentals, and I'll help put together your event layout. I'll send you all the details that are included in each package in my bridal packet, Shoot me an email and I'll send it your way!
Are you not offering day of coordination anymore?
No, I'm not! But that's a good thing! I want to make sure every one of my brides' visions comes to life and I can't do that with day of coordination. For my coordination brides, I was able to be there on the day of the event and work with anything they had at the venue. I wasn't able to work with them on a floor plan or help them source decor for the best pricing possible. I also wasn't able to suggest ideas for my brides that they may not have thought about but could have made a huge impact. Going forward I can't wait to work with EVERY bride on their wedding day design!!!
Do you still offer invitation suites and calligraphy?
Yes! I still absolutely love to work with brides to create their invitations. I believe they should be an introduction to the event and every paper item that the guests sees should be cohesive from the Save the Dates to the programs to the Thank Yous. I offer separate package for each of these so you can pick and choose exactly what you need!
I am so excited about my new packages because they will better serve my BRIDES and that's what my business is all about!!! They offer me more time to commit to each wedding and give me the chance to be more involved in the planning process to make sure your day is absolutely PERFECT!
