Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT’S IN A PLANNING MEETING?


Planning Meetings are some of my favorite times with my clients! They can take place at a local coffee shop, over a glass of wine, or at your venue!

Once you’ve booked my services, I’ll send over some forms for you to fill out to get to know you better.  Together, we’ll review those forms, discussing your vision for your day, planning the logistics and all those beautiful details to create your elegant and beautiful day!

I LOVE these meetings-getting to know my clients a little better and getting help create their beautiful vision.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE REHEARSAL?


The Wedding Rehearsal usually takes place the day before your wedding but this does depend on the availability of the venue.  The rehearsal is the beginning of those events where your wedding is getting ‘real’ and the first time that ALL of those people who love, from both the Bride & Groom’s lives, are coming together for the momentous and celebratory day!  We run through the basics of the ceremony and make sure everyone is comfortable knowing where they’re walking to, standing, and what they’re expected to do day of during the ceremony.   Such a fun and important part of your wedding weekend!

Below are some of the things you can expect at your Wedding Rehearsal:

1.5 hour rehearsal time included in service fee

Name tags for all attendees

Rehearse key components of ceremony

Staging of Processional, Rehearsal and ceremony locations

Provide directions to rehearsal dinner
