Have a rough vision of what you want for your wedding décor, but aren’t quite sure how to pull it into a cohesive design? My Creative Design Concept service was developed just for you! I will scour your Pinterest boards, visit your actual venue site and create a real, physical representation of what your design could look like. Then, I’ll help you gather up the resources you need to pull it off with vendor recommendations. Please note: this service works best for couples who have already selected their wedding venue.

It Starts With Your Vision

Inspiration can come from anywhere, so I’ll help you bring all your creative sources together so we can make sense of your vision. We’ll meet for a half hour phone session to discuss design priorities, and exactly what they’re looking to accomplish (ex. decorate the entrance way, the wall/fireplace, ther= reception centerpieces, reception room, etc.)

Prior to our meeting, I’ll study your Pinterest boards, review any inspiring photographs you’ve gathered and even take a look at tangible aids, such as a fabric swatch, paint chip or article of clothing. Wherever your inspiration comes from, I’ll get my hands on it and be fully prepared for our design session together.

I Visit the Space In Person

As a newly engaged couple, you probably have little, if any, experience with event décor and so you simply don’t know what to examine in an event space. With me, you’ll get my expert eyes on the property to ensure that any challenges, obstacles or important features are considered before we go down an impossible design path.

So why is this Creative Design Concept worth the expense, when I can just do this myself off of Pinterest? Because my insight and experience can save you time, money and stress by avoiding costly venue décor mistakes…

I will visit your local ceremony and/or reception location and scope it out so I know exactly what we’re working with. Even if I’ve been to a space before, I still do a site visit, because this allows me to focus the minute details that are specifically relevant to you. I don’t just have a quick lookover, I really get my hands dirty; taking measurements, noting rug and floor colors, documenting furniture and other items that are not allowed to be moved, mapping out where the vents are located and so forth.

I will take the time to find out what blooms will be in season surrounding the venue and check with the staff to see if there is anything else going on simultaneously during the time of the wedding such as parades, races/marathons, golf tournaments, graduations, etc. I’ve learned the hard way that these types of events can cause traffic delays and take up precious accommodations for out of town guests.

All of this information not only helps me compile a design concept for you, it is also highly valuable in saving time for the florist, lighting and draping team, which in turn, helps you avoid unexpected issues from arising on your big day.

I Deliver a Real Life Design Concept

After visiting the site, I will begin to develop a tangible design concept for your wedding. Inspiration from photos and Pinterest boards will only take you so far. To make your wedding vision come to life, you need a physical concept using real life décor and elements. With this service, I will craft a cohesive design plan on a tangible inspiration board and translate that concept into a live, visual display that incorporates key components, such as an invitation suite, a tablescape, bar décor, entrance way decor, escort cards, favors, ceremony décor, escort card table, vases, swagging, linens, etc.

This tangible representation of your custom, design concept is based on your vision and the inspiration you pulled together online. It’s exactly what you need to get some organization and direction around how to bring your digital ideas to physical reality.

I Connect You With Resources

Pulling together a cohesive design plan is only half the battle. Now you need to select vendors and resources to make it happen. I will compile a list of reputable vendors and local resources that can help you bring the concept to fruition, as well as develop some pricing estimates so you know what to expect. Then, you’re off to the races! You’ll have the tools you need to interview, hire and purchase what you need to execute your design concept.  

Contact me to schedule a complimentary consultation to finally get some organization around your scattered design ideas so you can move forward with your fabulous vision
