We've all heard that old saying - "practice makes perfect;" well when it comes to weddings we think it is the logistics that save the day!
When you book your wedding venue or even when planning a wedding in your own back yard, you are taking a canvas and filling it with tables, chairs, DJ equipment, dance floor, buffet tables, a bar and much more. Then the task becomes designing the space so that it is not only beautiful, but so that it is nice and open - no bottle necks of traffic at the bar or the buffet line and that everyone can see the events going on throughout the evening.
Adding tools, features and resources to our planning packages not only improves efficiency on the backend but we know it gives couples the extra reassurance that all of the details are being managed. When we sit down with our full service and design clients we are able to build the experience with them from day one!
This process takes vision, and critical thinking skills because we aren't always working with a cookie cutter space. We also have to consider power supply, lighting, level ground and the logistics for catering to prep and serve the food. Sometimes we sketch the space and give an outline of the set-up after walking through the space, and getting to hear more about your vision. Then we can apply these sketches and the couple's wish into a more detailed floor plan design that we can share with all of the vendors ahead of time.
Need to figure out how many extra uplights to add on with your DJ? Let's see those lights in action and plan out your space accordingly. Visualize where the guests will be when the reception is underway!
Aside from the planning of the space we also build your timeline so that you can make the most of your day. We don't want to waste any precious moments due to something that could be prevented such as transportation problems, lighting or venue access.
Our couples can log into their planning dashboard and have 24/7 access to their timeline, guest list, budget, design studio and planning checklist among many other helpful tools!
When your guest count changes so does your rental order, catering invoice, floor plan and transportation schedule. Having a wedding planner on board to communicate with all of the event partners you have booked will save you time and ultimately give you a smoother wedding experience overall.
Are you considering hiring a wedding planner for your special day? We would love to learn more about your vision and help you create the logistics to make it all happen!
