Planning an elopement or a wedding with less than 40 guests? Contact me for custom pricing.
Wedding Planning is a kind of vague term that basically boils down to: whatever I can do to help you. Some things that might entail are establishing and managing your wedding budget; researching venues and vendors, narrowing them down to your top choices, and negotiating contracts with them; keeping you on track for all the wedding-tasks that need completing; reminding you of payment and head count deadlines; designing, sourcing and creating decorations; helping you select invitations or wedding attire, making travel arrangements for you or your guests, and whatever else needs to be done!
$4500 - $10,000+, depending on exactly what services you'd like to include. Don't worry - we'll start with a complimentary consultation and then I'll get you a customized proposal.
Availability: I currently have 2 openings for 2018 weddings and 3 openings for 2019 weddings.
Confident in your ability to take on the legwork, but in need of some professional guidance to sort out the results of your amazing Google-fu? Then my signature Wedding Stage Management service may be for you!
We’ll kick things off with a brainstorming, budget-strategizing session to get you started. Armed with my wedding planning checklist and a customized online budget spreadsheet (complete with booze calculator!) you’ll be planning away in no time. When you have an etiquette question, a budgeting concern, or want my opinion or expertise on wedding stuff, I'm just a phone call or email away because unlimited consultation is included in this package. As you book your vendors, I’ll become your liaison with them, managing changes, reminding you of payment deadlines, and handling anything that comes up. Monthly planning meetings will ensure no detail is forgotten as you plan. You’ll be the picture of zen as we manage the final details leading up to your wedding day.

You've got your whole wedding planned just the way you want it, and now you want to relax and enjoy it! Let me take over in the weeks leading up to your big day so you can do just that.
Some people call this “day-of-coordination”, which is a bit of a misnomer - I spend around 40 hours on each wedding I coordinate, and we get started way before the wedding happens! About half of those hours are preparation - reviewing plans, tweaking the timeline, communicating with vendors, and organizing information - which ensures that I can do the best possible job managing everything so you can be truly present.

SMALL BUDGET COORDINATION
(with an Aisle Less Traveled associate planner)
I'm building a network of wedding coordinators, most of whom are theatrical stage managers (why that's awesome), across the nation. If available in your wedding destination, I can connect you with one of these magical people at a more affordable price.
You'll get everything described under Wedding Coordination, except instead of working directly with me, you'll be guided by a fantastic stage manager local to your wedding.
$1150 for up to 100 guests and one location
