Partial Wedding Planning

Starts at $2675

If you've already gotten started with planning your wedding, but need somebody to help keep you on track, this is the perfect service for you!

You might already know your venue, have a rough draft of your budget, and even have a few of your vendors booked. Now what? You may feel nervous that you're missing something big and important (like getting your marriage license) or the tiniest detail (like the color of your mother's nail polish). You may be wondering how this is all going to come together in time and under budget. If this sounds familiar, hiring Woodland Events as your partial planner is the perfect next step.

Included in our partial wedding planning package:

  • All Wedding Management services, PLUS:

  • An enhanced version of our online planning portal, with customized checklists and additional support.

  • 30 hours of planning service and support, which may include budgeting, design advice and feedback, in-person meetings, vendor research and recommendations, and more!

With partial wedding planning, you can choose the fun parts of planning while leaving the rest to us.

 

Wedding Management

Starts at $1500

If you want to plan your own wedding, but don't want to worry about a single detail on the day except showing up and celebrating, this package is for you.

Included in our wedding management package:

  • Access to our online wedding planning portal throughout your engagement. Includes planning, budgeting, and design tools, with hundreds of hints, tips, and advice from our team!

  • Direct communication with your vendors the month before your wedding so you can just relax as the day draws near.

  • Creation of a wedding day timeline and planning document to keep all of your day-of details in order.

  • Coordination of your rehearsal, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception.

  • Unlimited email and text message support.

Wedding Management is commonly referred to in the wedding industry as day-of coordination. This term is a myth. Truthfully, we are working with you for a month or more before your wedding and ensuring every detail is thoughtfully compiled and executed.
