VENDOR RESEARCH + PROCUREMENT

Planning a large event can be exciting, yet overwhelming at the same time. There are so many decisions to be made and a ton of vendors to choose from. It can be stressful trying to figure out everything on your own and you might not know where to begin.

During your consultation, Melissa  will listen to all of your ideas and wishes for the day. You will discuss your budget, determine which vendors you'd like to hire, and go over services that they provide.

 

Melissa will then take all of your ideas and will provide you with a list of available vendors that fit your style and budget. Together, you will review your contracts, establish a timeline for your vendors, and arrange deposits to secure your date. Then, you can relax and enjoy your engagement, knowing that you booked the best vendor for your big day!

DECOR

STYLING + DESIGN

Perhaps you have a ton of ideas saved on your Pinterest Board, but you're struggling to narrow them down. Or maybe you and your partner have different styles and you're looking for someone to help meld them together. That's where I step in!

During your design consultation, Melissa will walk you through your ideas to help you narrow down your decor elements. You will discuss your budget and Melissa will provide you with suggestions on how to save money and repurpose decor and flowers. 

 

She will then create a beautiful INSPIRATIONAL BOARD for you, focusing on your colors, theme, and decor elements and includes all of the necessary items for a wedding. You will then be given a detailed list of items needed to either purchase, make, or rent to achieve your desired look.

Super simple!

REHEARSAL 

MANAGEMENT

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life.  It's a time to gather your loved ones to witness and celebrate your union. While it's joyous event, there are lots of moving parts to a wedding ceremony, which is why having a rehearsal is so very important. 

 

Hiring a professional coordinator will help you with all of the logistics of a wedding ceremony. Prior to rehearsal, you and Melissa work together on finalizing your ceremony plans to prepare you for the big day. She'll answer any questions you may have and help you make final decisions about the ceremony. 

 

At rehearsal, Melissa will familiarize everyone with the ceremony site and layout. Together, you will review where everyone needs to be and what role they play during the ceremony. Then, you will practice your processional, focusing on pacing and where to stand at the alter. Melissa will then walk you through the components of the ceremony and practice your recessional. Melissa will help you practice until you and your bridal party feel completely comfortable and confident for the big day!
