A Word from Meagan about the bride guide
When I was first making the jump into full time planning, I met with a wedding planner that I admired so much, and sat down with a list of questions about what I could do to best prepare myself for this next chapter.
Through our conversation, I learned a lot of invaluable information, much of which still carries through in the practices we uphold today. But through our conversation, she shared that after a certain point in their business, they stopped working with lower budget couples and no longer responded to such inquiries.
Y'all, that hit me hard. I may plan beautiful events, but I certainly didn't come from an affluent background, and I NEVER wanted a couple to feel as though "they couldn't sit with us". And that's where the idea of the DIY Bride Guide was born.
If you're planning your own wedding and you find yourself at a venue that doesn't require a professional planner, so you're hoping to save some money and have a friend coordinate your day-- you still deserve to have a beautifully executed day. SO, we developed a comprehensive planning guide that will help you as you're organizing timelines, floor plans, and hoping you didn't forget to ask your caterer something about the menu.
The guide includes everything from budget worksheets and timeline templates, to seating chart FAQs and breakdowns of what questions to ask each vendor you’re researching.
Every guide also comes with a 2 hr planning session with one of our planners, to assist with your layout, design, or any other issues you may be facing.
Couples will have the option of downloading the bride guide for $299 as a resource for and guidebook for planning their own wedding. They can also choose to complete the guide and return it to us, if they are searching for a day of coordinator, and wish for our assistance. If they select this option, couples will save $300 on the price of coordinating services.
Since we no longer offer standalone day of coordination services, this is a way for couples to still receive this service from our team-- and also to save money throughout the planning process! We believe that every wedding is a wonderful chance to celebrate love, and we would love the opportunity to help you however we can.
