We work with a vendor to assist with invitations. We offer coordinating RSVPs. However, most of our clients prefer to handle that aspect.

We handle rentals, delivery, walk through, consultation scheduling, floor plans, timelines, and logistics for the day of the wedding.

We create the timeline and provide a copy to all of the vendors. We communicate with the vendors beforehand to determine the best time for arrival.
