Yes, every couple has one! After our first few discussions and/or meetings, this information is gathered and arranged on vendor contact sheets and payment schedules, and added to checklists of complimentary items or breakdown returns at the end of the evening. Checklists for bridesmaids and groomsmen, yes, I send a ‘visually pretty, watered down’ plan of your rehearsal dinner & wedding day to the bridal party and parents. Your visions, ideas, and revisited ideas come together in your wedding day plan.
the dreaded word
Yes, this too, is another creative piece of wedding planning. I assist you with establishing expenditure expectations. Oh, and of course, suggestions for those personal do-it-yourself guest gifts, or added more floral throughout your wedding.

My suggestions usually reflect what works best for the couple, HOWEVER, somethings are still considered ‘tacky’.
Big ones: the officiant, the DJ, the transportation after the wedding
Small ones: escort cards, guest welcome bags, mimosas for the bridal party getting ready
