Delovely D.I.Y. Platinum

 

Day-of Coordination + EVENT DESIGN

This package is for the Pinterst-inspired couple who want guidance in creating and implementing the overall design, decor, and ambiance of the event. This d.i.y. couple have already secured their venue and hired all vendors, and just want help executing their vision on their wedding day. One of our planners will tie up all of the loose ends, and two of our planners will attend, oversee, and direct the event, handle your vendors, keep everything on time, and make sure you have a memorable and enjoyable experience.
