When you'd rather binge-watch Netflix than review the catering contract.
Our team of designers, planners, coordinators, florists and production crew work with you every step of the way to build your perfect wedding. We're based in Ottawa, Canada and available worldwide.
The news is barely out and you’ve already been asked who’s getting invited, how far the venue is, what colour the bridesmaids dresses will be, and what the vegan option are (you don’t even have a date yet). If that wasn’t enough, now you have to deal with a global pandemic, locked borders, masks and sanitization stations, social distancing, and competition for vendors from postponed 2020 weddings.
You feel like you’re running out of time already but you don’t know where to start. Google is overwhelming with options, your Pinterest boards are all over the place, and eloping to Mexico is starting to sound really good, but you can’t even do that because of Covid…
Don't worry. We’ve got you.
What kind of help do you need?
You are super organized and ready to do the work, but you don't know vendor prices, timelines or what you're missing. You just need advice and a push in the right direction.
You're a great planner, but you have absolutely no idea how to decorate a wedding. You have an idea of what you want, but you need someone to pull it all together.
You're super organized and have planned the perfect wedding, but you don't trust your Aunt to coordinate the day. You want a professional to take control on the day.
You have no time to plan a wedding. You want someone to plan the whole thing for you. You can make the executive decisions, but trust the professional to handle the rest.
A few years ago, I realized that traditional wedding planning packages didn't make sense. They offered Full Planning (one year out), Partial Planning (6 months out), or Coordination (one month out). It's based on time though, not the needs of couples. I scrapped that model and built one that serves our clients better. We offer any level of help in whatever area you need it most.
You're in the right place.
Your style influences every decision you make when planning your wedding. There are so many styles on Pinterest that can be a bit overwhelming, but it doesn't need to be.
Pinterest giving you anxiety? Our designer team will perfectly curate a wedding tailored to your style and budget so you don’t have to spend any more time on Pinterest. We will curate the look and feel of your wedding within 5 meetings.
By providing you with an in-depth design guide, custom 2D and 3D renderings of your venue fully laid out and decorated (virtually), and a detailed list of all the decor required, you'll be receiving the detailed blueprints for your wedding. Call us Wedding Architects. Wedding Day Assistance, set up and tear down not included)
We don't do full-service planning like every other planner. We've found that most couples only want to know how much things should cost, who to call and what to expect. They want expertise, specific referrals tailored to their budget and style, and someone to bounce ideas off, but they're willing to do the legwork once they have all the right info and guidance.
We will customize your budget, checklist, timeline and floor plan, then give you access to our fully-loaded planning software. We’ll chat every month, give you recommendations and referrals for venues and vendors, review contracts, talk through issues with you and give you all the expert advice in the world. It's like having your best friend speed-dial, and she happens to be an expert planner. Does not include month-of/day-of wedding services.
Don’t make your bridesmaids work on the wedding day. The month of the wedding is extremely challenging for most couples, but with quarterly check-in calls, an extremely thorough and fool-proof timeline, and full access to our easy-to-use planning software (with guest management, budget tracking, contract storage, floor plan generators and more), planning on your own will be a breeze.
30 days before your wedding, we do your final confirmations and send the timeline to your vendors and VIPs, then we manage any issues that arise during the month of the wedding. Our coordinators will lead your rehearsal (complimentary) and then run your wedding day - usually from 9/10am-10pm as needed. Set up/tear down of decor is not included, but our production team can handle anything and we charge based on how much you need us to manage.
Garden-style, loose, dreamy florals are our forté. Our team of in-house florists create everything from bouquets and centrepieces to full-scale installations. We're known for loose, romantic arrangements featuring lush greenery, local flowers, unique textures and amazing colour theory.
Quotes vary on final designs, availability, size of the wedding, requirements and locations, but our minimum order is $3,500 plus HST, which is a standard starting point for weddings in our region. Our prices include full set up and tear down of everything we will be providing as well.
Sometimes, all you need is to have one conversation with an expert to help get you on the right path. Maybe you want to bounce designs off us or you're stuck with your floor plan and need help. Maybe you need suggestions for venues to visit or vendors to book. Maybe you've already done the planning but need help figuring out the timeline. You can pick our brains on any topic you like.
From tents, furniture, draping, lighting, linens, card boxes, vases and more, we draw from all our rental company partnerships from multiple cities to compile the best order for you at the best price, all on one contract. Once we know everything you need us to secure, we add it to our invoice.
It means that you don't have to work with multiple companies, do any price shopping or attend any site visits. We also do all of our own in-house stationery for invitations, menus, signage, place cards and more. Sourcing, deliveries, set up and tear down are all included in the fees.
