5. Who else is in your team and how many people on your staff will be at the wedding?

We do not like to put a number on meetings. Every one of our clients is different on how involved they want to be in the process. We treat everything on a case-by-case basis to give you the attention you deserve.

8. Will you handle the invitations, from wording and ordering to the addressing and mailing? What about guest list coordination and RSVPs?

We like to partner with local vendors to help with this piece. We will help guide you through this process and step in where needed.

9. Do you handle rentals? Will you coordinate delivery, arrival and set up times with the photographer, the florist, the musicians and the caterer/banquet manager?

Our team handles all logistics of the day for all vendors.

10. Can you create a timeline that tells everyone involved in the planning process (other pros, members of the wedding party, to-be-weds and families) what to do and when to do it? How will you make sure everyone sticks to the schedule?

We always create a comprehensive timeline for all vendors and everyone involved on the wedding day!
