online wedding planning course - $297

Thrifty-Events-Online-Wedding-Planning-Course-For-Engaged-Couples.png

You're savvy, creative, and excited to plan your wedding. Always ready for a good DIY project or two, but still looking for a little guidance. This course will empower you to plan your wedding from start to finish. It's a step by step guide to get you from engaged to married, and gives you a wedding planning pro as your sounding board throughout the process. You can relax. Wedding planning just got easier. 


 Day-Of Coordination - $1400

You've managed your entire planning process so far, and that's a big feat.  Everyone should have a coordinator, though. Day-of coordination is taking what you've planned, tying up any loose ends, organizing the small details, and putting it all into motion. It takes the bulk of the workload off your plate in the months leading up to the wedding and makes sure you don't have to lift a finger on your wedding day (unless, of course, you want to). NOTE: It's never too early to hire your day-of coordinator. The bulk of the work happens 2-3 months prior to your wedding, but I love helping couples get organized early to guarantee a successful event. 

 

 wedding Design Add-On - $500

This add-on to the Day-Of Coordination package is great if you have too many pins to narrow down, or no ideas at all. We'll discuss what you want the wedding to look like, then I'll provide ideas, samples, and suggestions. I can make decor, rent items, and provide floral help. For things beyond my limits (yes, even I've had a few Pinterest fails), I'll suggest very talented pros to make it happen. We'll work to develop designs within your budget to ensure your day looks exactly as you've imagined. 


Full wedding Planning  - $3500

You're just about to begin the process of putting together your big day. It's exciting, but also totally normal to feel a little overwhelmed. I'm here to help! This package includes everything, and I mean EVERYTHING. This package is great if you'd prefer to be more hands off with the nitty gritty work of planning (e.g. finding vendors, handling emails, creating your budget and tracking spending, developing the design, etc.) You get to make the decisions without doing all the behind the scenes work. Sounds nice, right? 


Elopements - $700

You're keeping things small, but that doesn't mean you don't need any help. This package is perfect for those that want to keep things simple and enjoyable. I'll handle the details. You focus on spending time with your soon-to-be spouse, family, and friends. You'll get assistance finding and booking your venue and up to 4 other vendors, as well as day of coordination for your elopement, up to 8 hours. 

*Elopements are classified as 25 guests or fewer, and less than 5 vendors to coordinate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between the course versus the full planning package?

The course is a great option for DIY couples that want to plan their wedding on their own, but also want some guidance from a professional wedding planner. It's an affordable option to  get access to the tools and knowledge you need to make planning less overwhelming and more enjoyable. Couples that purchase the course are still taking on the bulk of planning, though, while the full planning package takes all of that off of your plate. With full planning, I'll handle the workload for you, so you can simply inform me of your vision, and I'll set up meetings, book vendors, and manage your budget to make it all happen. While both options get you through planning, the full planning package also includes day of coordination and design, while those are both add-on options to the course. 

can i start with the course and upgrade?

Yes, but coordination, design, or a switch to full planning can only be accommodated based on availability on your wedding date. 

How does pricing work if i upgrade?

If you are a Wedding Building Blocks online course client, $100 of your course fees can be applied to any package. So, if you were to purchase the course, and then decided to add on Day-Of Coordination, that package would be offered to you for $1300 (originally $1400). 

If you book Day-Of Coordination, and want to later join the course, you would be given a $100 discount code, and could join the course for $197 (originally $297). 

Do you offer just design? 

No. My primary focus and area of expertise is helping couples plan and execute flawless weddings. For this reason, I only book design work as an add-on option for my Day-Of Coordination clients (design is included in the Full Planning package). If you are just looking for wedding or event design, I can recommend other planners and florists that specialize in that particular area. 

Can I add design to my Day-Of Coordination package later? 

Absolutely! I only book one client per day, so once you're booked for Day-Of Coordination, there is no reason I wouldn't also be available to add on the design package at a later time. 

Will you travel?

Yes! Weddings beyond 50 miles North or South of Kent, or on the peninsula going West and over the mountains going East, may require additional fees for hotel accommodations. Keep in mind, we are the first to arrive and last to leave your venue, and after a 12+ hour day, it's safer to stay overnight than try to drive home that same evening. If your wedding is outside of the PNW, we'd still love to help, but fees for airfare and hotel will be added.
