what we do
Wedding Planning Services
Here at Something Pretty my ultimate goal is to ease your stress and help to make planning your wedding fun! Your wedding is one of the most magical and beautiful days of your life. Unfortunately, it can be a bit stressful to get there. No matter your dreams, we are here to help you bring them to life. For many of my clients, this is the first wedding they have planned. Sometimes you start out knowing that you need a little help, sometimes you don't. Whether you have booked a few vendors or not, we are here to pick up where you left off.
Here, I guide you through step-by-step and provide my professional opinion from the get-go. You'd be surprised how much free time dedicated to planning slowly disappears under the mountain of other life responsibilities. That's why I am involved in every aspect of the wedding, from large tasks like helping you plan your budget, choose a venue and handling vendor correspondence, to setting up your decor and corralling your bridesmaids on the wedding day. A full-service planner is also a great option for clients who need help with the smaller details of a wedding, such as choosing linen colors and flowers, and might prefer to leave those decisions to an expert. Even if you're just looking to plan the majority yourself but you just need help to ease the stress load during crunch time. I am happy to step in later on in your planning process as well, stepping in to handle any unforeseen snafus in the weeks and days leading up to a wedding. We can also help with miscellaneous, last-minute things that need to be taken care of, such as final contract negotiations, making vendor payments and scheduling deliveries during what’s likely to be the busiest time of your engagement. Not to mention, above all else you have access to an immense wealth of online planning tools and services custom tailored to your wedding - by me!
Wedding Coordination Services
Coordinating is my favorite part! But it isn't just simply someone on site the day of your wedding to run through your timeline. My responsibilities come in far before then! I am here to create a game plan for your big day. I start by reviewing your planning so far, we go to your venue (if able) and start by having a detailed conversation about your vendors, contracts, and all of that beautiful planning you've done. Next we go through your timeline (or we create one!) and disperse it to all of your vendors. From then on I am here to assist in making your big day run smoothly. We handle those issues that pop up that you really shouldn't need to handle, and I am there on site when all of your rentals arrive.
Next, the fun part! Our main responsibility is to oversee everything taking place on the actual wedding day — think of us as the professional counterpart to your friend or relative who volunteers to “run” things on your wedding day (which isn’t always the best idea). Typical responsibilities of a day-of coordinator include greeting vendors and directing them to their proper places, managing the wedding decor setup and breakdown, helping the wedding party as needed, and ensuring that the day is running as on-schedule as possible. These responsibilities really add up - let me tell you!
And, as always you have access to an immense wealth of online planning tools and services custom tailored to your wedding - by me.
Not to be confused with wedding planning, event design and styling helps you exclusively with the visual side of your wedding. My goal is to help you create the aesthetic you are striving for - I'm sure you have a Pinterest board about it. Let's startwith the budget you actually have and bring to life the vision you daydream about. This ranges from tasks such as choosing a color palette, creating beautiful tablescapes or finding the perfect rentals to bring your cocktail lounge area to life. Event styling is for the client who has planned it all, and now needs help making it come to life.
