Whether helping you figure out your vision for the day, just assisting in executing your ideas, or anywhere in between, Thoughtfully Designed strives to make your wedding personal, memorable, and stress free! Please know that at the end of the day, your wedding is all about you and your fiance and making sure we create something that is representative of your relationship and perfect for you - I'm here to make achieving your vision and dreams as easy as possible rather than impose my own style or preferences.
I do offer a few packages, but I'm also happy to provide customized service dependent on your needs and budget. Regardless of which route you go, trust that I will be completely committed to your wedding - Whether you decide on full service planning or a single budget meeting, I'll be equally as thankful for your business and excited about your plans!
If you enjoy planning and organizing, but lack vision or ideas of how to bring your vision to life, this package is perfect for you! Included is a consultation, a custom design board with two revisions, recommendations of perfect vendors to fit the feel of your wedding, and meetings with all of your design vendors (stationery, floral, etc.) to ensure everyone is on the same page.
The starting price includes 8 hours of my time - An hour for the consultation, approximately 2 hours of design work and compiling a list of vendor options, another hour meeting to review potential vendors and choose your favorites, and 4 hours of meeting with vendors. Of course, I'll be in contact throughout the design phase and am always available with additional ideas or questions. Additional time can be purchased at an hourly rate.
Weekend/Day Of Coordination
This is a great option if you're taking care of all of the planning, projects, and details yourself, but want someone to take the stress and responsibility of making sure everything comes together flawlessly. We'll meet a month before the wedding to confirm vendors, create a timeline for the weekend, and catch me up on all of your plans.
This package includes set-up, decorating, coordination of rehearsal, developing a timeline for everyone involved in the weekend, working with vendors (deciding on arrival times, ensuring they know where they're going and set-up goes smoothly, and delivering final payment and/or gratuities,) taking care of any issues that arise the day of or during the event, transporting gifts to the location of your choice, and all tear down and clean up. The starting price includes 20 hours of my time - An hour consultation; a couple hours designing a timeline and ensuring vendors, bridal party, and family are all aware of where they need to be and when; an hour coordinating the rehearsal; a couple hours for various tasks including dropping off out of town bags, picking up all decor and details from you, dropping off gifts after the reception, etc; and fourteen hours between the day before and day of the wedding for all set-up, decorating, being available throughout the entire ceremony and reception for anything that might go wrong, and all tear down and clean up. Additional time can be purchased at an hourly rate, and anything that would require an assistant (intricate decor, draping fabric from ceiling, chair covers and ties, etc.) would be subject to an additional fee.
Full Service Planning
With this package, we'll work together throughout your entire planning process to ensure you have the wedding of your dreams. Everything mentioned above is included, as well as unlimited access to Thoughtfully Designed with ideas, concerns, or questions; a plan of action and timeline for your engagement; a budget designed around your needs; and custom design of details and decor, included but not limited to anything in my shop.
The starting price includes approximately 45 hours of my time. I'll be available for any and all vendor meetings, dress fittings, site walk throughs, and any other appointments you'd like me present at. I'll be touching base regularly and keeping you involved and updated on the timeline and checklist. Basically, anything you can think of that you'd want help with or guidance on is included in this package! Please note that any cost associated with decor/details will be your responsibility (in addition to cost of package) and due at the time of purchase.
