basic information gathering
The first thing we do is begin to setup your files. This means google docs where we share guest lists, timelines and other details you'll need to access and help keep us all on the same page. Those with access will have real-time updates. We also use Honeybook to communicate daily messages. You need only to reply to messages there in order for the record to be saved in your file. This is where we also store contracts and other details of your wedding.
We'll want to gather as much information as we can about you, your wedding party, your preferences. So, over the first month, you'll be getting a lot of requests for information from us. Don't worry, we'll let you know when something is urgent. We understand that you might have a full-time job or other things going on. That's why you have us to handle the details. Just get the information back to us as soon as you can, but don't fret over it. We'll prompt you with a recommended due date if it's time sensitive.
We'll reach out to your venue if you've selected one immediately to meet your representatives there by a phone call at first, then through email communications. If you haven't selected a venue, then we'll begin to send you lists of venue we love working with that we think are in line with your aesthetic.
Once hired, we'll share our list of preferred vendors with you and includes those we believe match your budget goals, aesthetic and vision. We'll start the conversation for those you are interested in. They will provide you with a pricing and a contract. The vendors we recommend include but are not limited to:
- Baker/Dessert Maker
- Sartorial (Wedding Dress, Bridesmaid Dress, Groom & Groomsmen Attire)
- Hair and Makeup
- Transportation (exit vehicle, guest shuttles)
- Draping & Lighting
