How much should I spend on decor?2019-12-13T15:52:51-07:00

The answer to this question is as individual as each couple we work with. We assist by providing budget examples, and real wedding pictures to determine your general investment level.We then work with you to discover your top priorities and style.

We want to help our couples with their decor aspirations and be realistic with their budget. When you see a stunning photo on Instagram/Pinterest, what you are not seeing is the decor consults, multiple proposals, labor costs, delivery charges, and all other time and work that goes into that single shot. We work with our couples to take their design visions and make something beautiful that stays within their desired investment level.

What vendors do you work with?2019-12-13T15:53:30-07:00

We have a list of preferred, expert local vendors ( from photographers to salon services to entertainment and everything in between) that we are more than happy to share with our clients. However, we do not limit our couples on who they work with. We will assist you in finding the perfect vendor for you, even if that means we haven’t worked with them previously and guide you through the booking process.

Do you offer set up and tear down services of DIY decor?2019-12-13T15:54:26-07:00

Yes, from time to time, we offer set up and tear down of personal decor for clients who have contracted us for wedding planning services. We do not offer set up and tear down outside of this. Cost for this service on an hourly basis, and quoted once item list is provided. Please contact us for more information.
