Your only job is to enjoy your special day and make once in a lifetime memories with the love of your life!
We will be there for anything you need while finishing the planning of your dream wedding!
Even though you are doing the majority of the planning, you'll need to book your partial wedding planning package at least
6 - 12 months in advance to ensure your planner and date are available! If you are running short on time and have decided last minute you need a wedding planner to help ease the stress of wedding planning, give us a call! We have experience planning fabulous last minute weddings.
What does this package include?
Let's get together for a drink, get to know each other and discuss your wedding vision a little bit.
We will spend a lot of time, together and communicating, while planning your wedding.
It is important for us to form a connection. You need to feel comfortable instilling your trust in me.
I would absolutely love to be your wedding planner
but just as not every relationship turns into a marriage, we may not be compatible.
I look forward to meeting you and can't wait to get started planning your wedding!
We will have monthly meetings throughout the planning process just to check in, answer any questions you have,
give recommendations when appropriate, get approvals from you and
just be there to support you though this process in anyway that we can.
Two and three months before the wedding day we will meet every other week.
Starting five weeks before your big day, we will have weekly meetings
to ensure we know exactly what you want for your big day!
Communication is unlimited! Though we will schedule our more formal meetings as per the schedule above, communication is always unlimited! Call, text or email with any and all questions or worries. We are here to be your guide, your confidant or even just an ear to listen!

Complimentary Wedding Webpage
We would love to design a custom webpage just for your wedding!
This webpage can serve as the communication link between you and your entire guest list!
Give your guests a peak inside your relationship, tell your love story and really allow your guests to connect on a deeper level with you and your life partner! Your wedding website can share important details and updates regarding your wedding, share your wedding registries, allow guests to rsvp and send well wishes. This is also a great place for you to share all of your wedding and honeymoon photos and videos with your friends and family.
Comprehensive Budget Development
Easily discover your realistic wedding budget through our comprehensive budget analysis worksheet. The budget you have available and your wedding vision can be analyzed and evaluated to help guide you to an appropriate wedding date and budget.
Venue Walk Through
After you have selected the wedding venue, we will schedule additional walkthrough visits to aid in planning the details of your big day.
Vendor Research & Selection
Weddings By Ashland will work to compile a viable list of potential vendors to fit your wedding style, preferences and budget.
Your wedding planner will review the potential vendors with you, schedule interviews with each vendor of interest and accompany you to each interview. Vendors include but are not limited to : Photographer(s) / Videographer(s), Sound Tech(s) / DJ(s) / Band(s) / Musician(s), Officiant(s), Caterer(s), etc.
Venue / Vendor Contract Review
Weddings By Ashland will review each contract and negotiate to the best of our ability to ensure you receive the best possible price. We will then review each venue and vendor contract with you to ensure there are no surprises before you agree to the terms of said contract.
Vendor Point of Contact
Your wedding planning team will be the vendor point of contact both before and on the wedding day ensuring that your special day runs smoothly and you don’t have to worry about anything! Focus on enjoying your time and making memories rather than dealing with the behind the scenes details.
Let’s take a close look at your wedding plans and evaluate the feasibility within your budget.
Some plans may be altered with the main goal of crafting a cohesive wedding vision
that can be executed seamlessly on your wedding day!
Your wedding team will coordinate between vendors and the rest of the wedding team
to ensure all objectives have been met to bring your wedding vision into reality.
Coordinate between vendors to ensure all objectives have been met to bring your wedding vision into reality.
Every last detail of an event needs to be planned out and timed just right to ensure smooth transition from one event to the next. Your wedding planner will walk through every seemingly miniscule detail from the minute you arrive at the venue to the minute you leave the venue. For more complex packages including Luxury, Surreal, Tranquility and Serenity, the wedding planner will also create timelines for delivery, set up, vendors and breakdown for use behind the scenes.
If you are looking for a traditional wedding, some aspects of traditional weddings or customary proceedings of traditional weddings, we would be happy to guide you through the process of planning and scheduling everything needed for the traditional wedding.
You are the star of the show! As with every great show, everyone needs to know their place and rehearse their part to ensure your wedding day is perfect on the first take! Rehearsal is typically scheduled ten days or less before the wedding.
A mock rehearsal can also be scheduled after venue selection, before invitations are printed, to ensure the wedding schedule is cohesive for wedding photos. This works best when the wedding planning begins more than 1 year before the wedding date, as ensuring a cohesive wedding schedule depends upon the time of year, sun/moon location/stage, etc.
Wedding Set-up / Clean-up
The last thing you want is to run around like a crazy person, totally exhausted and not able to enjoy your wedding. You don’t have to worry about the details of your wedding when you’ve got Weddings By Ashland as your right hand man or woman! It’s hard to prepare yourself for your special day if you have to do all the set up and decorating before the wedding and it really ruins the festive, romantic mood if you have to break down and clean up after your wedding! That’s why we take care of all that for you! We will return the event space to its original state, arrange for rentals to be returned and ensure that your personal items and gifts are delivered to your home or family liaison.
Wedding Day Coordination
Murphy's Law states : "Everything that can go wrong, will go wrong!"
That's why you need a personal assistant to work behind the scenes!
Every planned and unplanned situation will be handled with discretion so that you can
focus on getting married to the love of your life and making incredible, once in a lifetime memories!
