Before the wedding, we help you research sites for the ceremony and reception, develop a realistic budget and help keep costs within that budget. We recommend the best vendors and review contracts for all services that they offer. We help you negotiate discounts from vendors for the Bride and Groom. We work with all vendors to ensure that outstanding service will be provided for your event.

We assist with planning the rehearsal dinner and can help you make arrangements for out of town guests. Elaborate Parties by Bennett can even make all the 'welcome bags' so that your out of town guests can feel welcomed.

For 'day of wedding coordination', we start a month before the wedding. We develop a detailed timeline to ensure a smooth flow of events, with the Bride and Groom having full input. We confirm and reconfirm all the details leading up to your wedding. We always keep an expense record to make sure that all your bills are being paid on time. We sell invitations at great prices, wedding accessories, which include The Beverly Clark Collection and Godiva Chocolatier.

We work with the officiant to make sure that the ceremony flows smoothly. We always attend the rehearsal and assist with any last minute details that arise. We arrive early on the wedding day, help the bride get dressed, if needed, and help the bridal party with anything that they need. We assist all vendors to make sure that we are all working as a team.

We give cues to the band or DJ when necessary and we help distribute flowers to family and bridal party members. We help seat late arriving guests and help with the receiving line.
