You’ll see from reading through the nitty-gritty of working with us, our most basic package is Month of Coordination. It doesn’t really matter where you are getting married, or how many people are coming, or what the flow of the event looks like, you get everything included in that package – including a wedding rehearsal. It’s what Elizabeth, our founder, feels we need to do in order to set each coordinator up for success and make sure each client feels at ease with how the day is going to go.

If there is one thing I love in equal amounts to throwing a party, it’s definitely traveling and New York City is a favorite.

Many couples are beginning to plan their own weddings rather than enlist the help of a professional event planner to help defer the average cost of a wedding. While many couples will swear by the help a wedding planner provides in making sure their big day goes on without any problems, it can feel good to take some of the processes into your own hands.
When you get engaged, it’s time for the wedding planning to begin. Some couples make the mistake of trying to plan their own wedding only a few months ahead of the event, only to find venues booked out.
The earlier you secure a venue, the better, especially if you are having the wedding at a popular time of year or at a destination venue. The earlier you secure a venue the two of you like, the less stressful the rest of the planning is.
But, what comes after the venue? What steps do you need to take to make sure the big day is as personalized for the two of you as possible while keeping the guests entertained? A wedding is meant to be a time of celebration and good times not just for the couple, but for the entire guest list, meaning a lot of consideration must go into the amenities and experience of the entire day.
Planning a full day’s itinerary and hiring vendors is a first for many couples, and the process can feel overwhelming.
In this wedding planning checklist, Anticipation Events provides a comprehensive guide to the big day to help keep things simple.
