F U L L Planning | N I N E  &  T W E L V E Month Planning

Michelle isn’t always given a full year to plan someone’s wedding but she found that between 9 and 12 months were the estimated time frames consistently being presented by prospective clients. When you inquire for this service (or any other service) Michelle will present to you a monthly breakdown of services in order for you to see where your investment is going. To plan an entire wedding is no easy task, there are many moving parts to consider from nailing down (and sticking to) the budget, creating your event design, venue search, menu creation, hiring vendors, calligraphy and stationery design, music and more. Not only that, but Michelle also understands the strong family dynamics that occur throughout such an emotional process. As the bride, and/or the groom, you will have moments of doubt and fear because there is just so much added pressure put onto this one day. What you will learn about Michelle, as the process begins and throughout your time with her, is that she never stops until you have what you need, she’ll never give up no matter how hard any part of the process may seem (to you) and she will always be your positive and calming force to help keep everything together; more importantly stress free. Michelle says “I’m not just your wedding planner, we become friends. I also become your therapist, it’s quite the journey & you want to be sure that you have the right wedding planner in your corner to be able to handle it all!”

P A R T I A L Planning | S I X Month Planning

Through the years, Michelle has found that many couples would get engaged, book their venue, send out save the dates and then just sort of go back to regular life assuming their wedding would somehow work itself out. When they’d realized that time was flying and nothing else had been done, they’d reach out to Michelle with six months left and a lot of work still to do! Recognizing this consistent pattern, she decided to create a six month planning package, which is best understood as Partial Planning. Now, if you so happen to fall somewhere in between three and six months or even more, no need to worry, ALL of Michelle’s planning services are custom to each couple! So what exactly does partial planning entail? Simply put, it’s a step down from full planning. You may have done some of the legwork but you have a lot more left in front of you! Michelle will review all of what you have done thus far and put together a comprehensible plan of action to get you through the remainder of the process smoothly and productively.

T H R E E  Month Planning

Similar to Month Of, only much better! Michelle understands that there are many brides & grooms who feel as if they can plan their wedding on their own. Many say “a wedding already costs so much, why add on another bill?” However, when those, very crucial, final months start slowly creeping up and the wedding day countdown has changed from ‘months’ to ‘weeks’ many brides & grooms re-consider their initial non-need for a planner. The number one fear presented is always that you are too late to hire a wedding planner or the greatest fear is how will someone be able to easily pick up where you are leaving off and be able to deliver what you’ve had planned in your head(s) for months or even years. From experience, Michelle found that many couples would contact her when they had just three months left. Seeing that Michelle no longer offered ‘month of planning’ couples would inquire for ‘partial service’ but they realistically fell under a new bracket of service : three month planning. Truthfully speaking, Michelle feels that one month just isn’t enough time to provide the high quality of service that you deserve and need; giving reason to the cut off of that service last year. However, not every couple believes they need a wedding planner from the beginning but when the realization kicks in just months away from your special day, you should still be able to acquire high-end, high quality service.
