Tia & Tony’s Fun Reception at Bellvue Manor
This past July, the Whimlets had the pleasure of coordinating a lovely wedding for a very special couple, Tia and Tony! Tia and Tony had a multi-day celebration, culminating in a gorgeous reception at Bellvue Manor! Take a peek at the fabulous photos below, from Treasured Photography!
Tia and Tony have such a great sense of style, as evidenced from Tia’s incredible Hayley Paige Dory gown. She spun to her heart’s content, and made it look effortless all day long! We loved the many stunning details that Tia and Tony thoughtfully tailored to reflect their relationship, like the beautiful multi-tier cake by Spring Bloom Cakes, that featured a Superman emblem, because Tony is Tia’s Superman :). We also realllly loved the cultural flash mob-style dance that Tia and Tony had choreographed for the reception. It started with the bridal party, and by the end almost half of the guests were in on it! The video is very impressive because it’s captured in one take!

This doesn’t even scratch the surface of this standout wedding! Tia and Tony thoughtfully planned with their guests in mind, and managed to stay cool and look like movie stars in the process. There are so many amazing vendors to thank for working hard to make this day perfect. Check ’em out below!

Month-Of Coordination: What Is It and Do I Need It?
Month-Of Coordination is for (almost) everyone.
Why do couples book month-of coordination? Usually these are couples who genuinely enjoy planning and are on top of their details, but want to relax and enjoy their wedding weekend. They want to avoid having to follow up with vendors all day. They want to avoid worrying about setting up small items or coordinating a rehearsal. Our month-of clients are usually professional couples that really want to interact with their guests and enjoy the details and fun aspects of the wedding that they’ve spent months and sometimes years planning.
When a couple books a month-of planner, they typically continue on with their wedding planning until approximately 4-6 weeks prior to the wedding. At this point, the planner and the couple meet and discuss the details of the wedding, and go over timelines, contracts and expectations to get a feel for how the day should play out. The planner also does a final walkthrough of the venue and confirms timings and requirements with all vendors. That sounds wonderful – but how does a client get from their engagement to this point? It can all be very overwhelming.
In order to make the planning experience a smooth one for our month-of coordination clients, we have put together a handy and stylish…..
Isn’t it pretty? This resource package includes:
– Planning Checklist
– Budget Template
– Recommended Vendor List
– Guest List Template
– Etiquette Guide for Addressing Wedding Invitations
– Marriage License Instruction Sheet
– Vendor Contact Sheet Template
– Wedding Day Timeline Template
Why do our clients love this? It gives them the tools they need to efficiently plan their wedding and stay organized. Our clients have full control over the planning of their wedding and we step in closer to the wedding date and ensure that all of this hard work is executed flawlessly.
Why do we love it? We recognize that stepping into an event mid-way can be challenging for the couple, the vendors and of course for the planners. After planning and coordinating several weddings, we realized having that there are benefits to having these resources available from the onset of the planning process. In fact, our couples felt better educated and fully equipped to put together a fabulous wedding. It also helped us step into the wedding midway with the confidence of knowing that our couples used resources and guides that we’ve used time and time again.
Do you want to relax with your friends and family on your wedding day? Contact us today to learn more about our Month-Of Coordination package and how you can benefit from our Client Resource Package!
