As your "Wedding Manager" I will guide you through the planning process with timelines, vendor contacts/meetings. style/design...and then manage the day-of event.  A Wedding Manager handles the following tasks:

  • Assists in creation of wedding budget; works to keep wedding on target financially

  • Can attend meetings if the bride would like advice/ideas
  • Reviews all contracts and makes recommendations; negotiates for the bride
  • Works with the bride to develop the theme, look, feel, style and design of the event; provides ideas and recommendations
  • Locates and can order props, decorations, and other design needs

As your "Wedding Sitter" I will handle all day-of activities, vendor management, set up/clean up...and produce the 1-hour rehearsal.  A Wedding Sitter handles the following tasks:

  • Talks with vendors 3-4 weeks in advance to coordinate services and timeline for wedding
  • Reviews timelines with the bride and makes any recommendations
  • Set-up...linens, centerpieces, decorations/props, lighting, name cards, guest books, parting gifts, etc.
  • Sets up the bride/groom rooms
  • Serves as the manager and chief communicator for all during the event
  • Handles any "mishaps" and "changes in plans", illness, miscalculations, no-shows, etc.
  • Oversees catering, bar, music, photography, and all event activities (garter, bouquet, special dances, cake cutting, etc.)
  • Secures all gifts into someone's car
  • Hands out checks, makes sure all final payments and headcounts are in on time to vendors
  • Handles clean up and all rental returns
  • Places rentals or props into appropriate cars for departure
  • Comes with an emergency kit...sewing, medicine, first-aid, tools, supplies
  • Guides wedding party during the ceremony; produces ceremony order
  • Places reserved seating signs for the ceremony, handles pew bows and passing out of programs
  • Sets up  ceremony unity activity (unity candle, sand pouring, etc.); and takes it down and safely secures it into someone's car
  • Manages 1-hour rehearsal (vital)
  • Keeps track of special photo and song "must haves"

...and many more!  Trust me when I say that managing your event is not something a bride or immediate family can feasibly do on this day.  The  details are endless and it's a lot of work.

Lipstick is really magical. It holds the promise of a brilliant smile and a brilliant day both literally and figuratively.
