Day of Wedding Planner Packages
What does a Day-of Wedding Planner do, you may ask?
It is our responsibility as professionals, to make sure all the wedding plans are
perfectly executed as planned by the bride
and groom. We make sure deliveries are made on schedule and everything runs smoothly on the day of the rehearsal, and on the wedding day, so the bride can relax and remain stress free on her big day.
You may not need a planner to help with the months of preparation before the wedding, but you want to make sure that everything runs without a hitch on the Day-of-Wedding.
You don’t want to trouble a family member or friend to help with this task because they
too will want to enjoy your special day.
And very few friends and family members have experience with event planning. We don’t want them sharing their stress with the bride as they become overwhelmed with all the details.
We make our services affordable for everyone.
Packages Start From $500
Our packages are affordable and start at $500 depending on the Day-of-Wedding package
selected, size of the wedding, and location.
We also offer wedding planning consultation on an hourly basis and cost, and may include occasional meetings with you and, or remotely offer suggestions and ideas to help you with planning your wedding. This service is a cost saving alternative to outsourcing the whole planning of the wedding to experts, and many of our clients have found it very valuable.
