FULL-SERVICE WEDDING PLANNING

GENERAL PLANNING PROCESS

Congratulations! We promise to walk with you through this engagement season – assisting, guiding, advocating, planning and designing - to ensure that your wedding day is stress-free, joyful and even better than you are imagining right now. We strive to streamline the process with minimal but efficient meetings and open communication. We will work with you to create a wedding planning schedule that suits your needs and helps keep everyone on task with due dates and to-dos.

DECOR & FLORAL DESIGN

What matters to you matters to us and we take time to listen to your priorities. This is the fun stuff! In our studio, we will use your Pinterest inspiration and our collective creativity to pull together all the elements – from draping, lighting, and rentals to linens, chairs and especially the flowers. With over 20 years in the floral industry, we have a team of designers, a huge studio space and a large assortment of containers and décor elements at our disposal. This signature service sets Big Events Wedding apart from other planners, and allows us to maintain complete control of this design element. We love it - pretty flowers are our jam!
