How can I control by bar cost?

This is an area where you can have a lot of flexibility, however, each venue is may have their own policies. Some options may include

A) Choose a bar level package based on various liquors which are priced per hour per person;

B) Pay "on consumption", meaning we count the drinks your guests drink thru the night and then add the total of drinks at the end of the night and you pay for what they drink/consume that night.

C) You can choose to pay a certain budget amount for the night, so you can say "I want to pay $2500.00 usd for drinks" and then when the total bar prices total 2500.00 USD then we tell you we have hit that limit. At that time, you can tell us to announce to the guests the remaining drinks will be on a cash basis, or you can choose to continue monitoring the drinks and increase the bar tab. We are here to help and make sure you have a wedding to suit your budget, so we can give you many options!

Do you offer “day of coordination” wedding services?

Yes, but as professionals cannot just "show-up" on the day of your wedding and run an event, we start our process 60 days out so we can speak and/or meet with your vendors to assure everything can be executed per your contracts.

Traditionally, the Groom’s parents host this event the night before the wedding. For destination weddings,  a Welcome Party is offered to all guests coming to your wedding. If you are on a limited budget, then you can host an intimate rehearsal dinner with your bridal party and family members and then go out with friends after the event.

 Yes, we can dedicate an chair with a rose, photo, and/or name during the ceremony. During the reception, we can also decorate a small table with candles and/or photos of loved ones.

Can we choose our own vendors?

Yes! We prefer to work with professional vendors as it takes a team to execute an impeccable event, however, if you choose your own vendors you need to be aware of the contractual obligations and costs before signing the dotted line.
