Whether you just want a little guidance, or someone to take the reins, we have a variety of services to suit your needs. We offer Consulting, Month of/Day of Wedding Coordination, Partial Planning, and Full Planning + Coordination services. This is your wedding. It’s your day. So let’s plan the wedding you want.

Consulting

You’re looking forward to taking the lead in your wedding. You love the running around, the shopping, comparing, organizing. You simply want some guidance so you have a solid plan in place.

Before we meet in person, let’s talk about you and your partner and the kind of wedding you both envision. I’ll do some research so I can guide you with your plans. When we’re done you’ll have a clear blueprint for:

Your budget. This is critical. Nothing creates more stress than realizing your expenses are running away on you because of unforeseen costs.

Your venue. Will you be in Kelowna, or at Big White Ski Resort, in a park or church, a boutique hotel or a grand ballroom.

Theme and style. Casual or formal, whimsical or traditional, or something in between.

Vendors. Even the simplest wedding requires the basics. You’ll know who to contact for tables and chairs, music and lights.

Wedding etiquette. Whether you’re holding a formal wedding or not, there are some customs you’ll probably want to honour.

Wedding day timing. A clear schedule that you can share with your family and your wedding party will take away stress and ensure the day runs smoothly.

When we meet, I’ll present the information for you to keep and answer any questions you may have.

Month of/Day of Wedding Coordination

You know you’re going to enjoy the lead-up, planning with family and friends, and all the running around that comes with it. But once everything has been arranged and you’re counting down to the final weeks and days, you’d like a professional to take over so you can just relax and soak in the moment.

We’ll have a free initial meeting (or Skype or phone call if you live outside of Kelowna) to get to know each other.

We’ll check in with you from time to time leading up to your wedding day to see how your plans are coming along. About 6 weeks out, we’ll review all of your wedding plans, get everything confirmed, and ensure everything is ready to go for your big day!

As your Coordinator I will:

Create an agenda for your wedding day

Confirm vendors and venue(s) and be the main point of contact on the day

Attend and coordinate your wedding rehearsal

Coordinate duties of your wedding party

Oversee set-up at ceremony and reception venue(s)

Assist bride & bridesmaids with dressing (if required)

Oversee vendors on your wedding day

Handle necessary payments with vendors

Provide onsite supervision of your wedding ceremony and reception

Ensure everything runs as planned (and handle anything that doesn’t!)

Full Planning + Coordination

You want to create a unique, memorable wedding that matches your vision. But you’d like a professional to take care of making it happen so you can just enjoy the experience without worrying about the details.

We’ll have a free initial meeting (or Skype or phone call if you live outside of Kelowna) so we can get to know each other.

It’s important that I understand what you want from your wedding day, get to know your personalities, your story. I want you to look back on this day and be able to say that you had exactly the wedding you wanted.

After this meeting I’ll provide a detailed estimate of costs for my services.

Full Wedding Planning includes all of the Month of/Day of Wedding Coordination services, and I can also:

Research vendors and venues based on your budget, theme and size of wedding

Book venue (ceremony and reception) visits and attend them with you

Create and manage your wedding budget

Create a wedding planning timeline so you always know what is happening and to put your mind at ease

Assist with stationery selection and wording of invitations
