For couples looking for full support from start to finish, full planning services lets you enjoy the journey, be amazed by the surprises and revel in the celebration and fun. The reigns are in our hands and with guidance and frequent check-ins, we plan your event(s) as you sit back (with some occasional steering) and enjoy the ride. Full planning starts with initial brainstorming and design sessions so we have a shared working mindset. We’ll prepare design boards that reflect color, tone, style, your must-haves, and lots of “that’s brilliant!” ideas and unsuspecting surprises that begin to form the character and feel of your wedding. We’ll research well-paired potential vendors to provide you with options and bids, embark on taste testings from top caterers and desert officiandos, line up logistics and ensure smooth, regularly monitored timelines and schedules. Full planning includes the Day-of Coordinator Package above in addition to 60 hours of lead planner services to fully plan your dream wedding. Here’s an overview of what’s included. If you don’t see something, please inquire!
Dragonfly Event Designs is all about wedding floral – it’s probably Nikki’s favorite creative design work! We’ll work with you – and within your budget – to create a floral design framework reflective of the style, colors, tone, season and character of your wedding ceremony and reception. Wedding floral can range from simple, in-season bud vases and bouquets to floral chandeliers, draping and elaborate centerpieces. We’ll create design boards, pour over your ideas and pins, and work within your budget to bring your vision to life. Floral cost varies depending on the number of arrangements, center pieces, bouquets, etc., and the floral and materials we’re working with. But we guarantee, hands-down, that we can beat almost any price, save for Grandma’s free time and garden cuttings. And that can be the best choice!
By the hour planning ~ $100/hour
If wedding/event planning is unknown territory and you’re simply looking for a place to start, going with a few hours of initial planning and learning about the process, the do’s and don’ts, and what you need to nail down first and foremost can help lift the fog so it’s easier to see the road ahead. Sometimes a bit of out-of-the gate coaching and putting things on paper is all you need to take flight or it’s the start of a laugh and design-filled collaboration that ignites excitement and reminds you that the journey is a big part of the fun.
Dragonfly offers an A la Carte menu of individual services for those clients who want to add a few things to a package or for those clients who are sailing smoothly and want to hire a set-up crew, for example. Again, if you don’t see what you’re after here, please inquire!
