If Love is in the Details

Then No Detail Should be Overlooked

 

Let's Connect

Our sincerest congratulations!

You’ve both found that special someone you want to spend forever with. We understand that now the thought of planning the wedding becomes overwhelming. Even if you want a simple, low-key affair, it will still take a village to get everything done. 

Life is busy as it is, juggling your job, spending time with your partner, friends, family, hobbies, and other normal obligations like working out, getting groceries, or doing laundry – blah! On top of everything already going on in your life now, you need to carve out time to book vendors, finalize timeline & budget, review contracts, manage all the RSVPs, gather guest dietary restrictions, book transportation… the list truly goes on and on! You may wonder- how will I get this all done!?

ENTER THE DESIGN CO.- THIS IS WHERE WE COME IN!

THE BEST PRESENT YOU CAN GIVE YOURSELF; THE GIFT OF TIME. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

We take care of every aspect of your wedding alongside you. From the fun, creative design to the more uninteresting, time-consuming, and generally annoying logistical components of the event planning process, giving you both more time to spend on all the other things you want to do. Relax and enjoy being engaged and all the perks that come with it! Celebrating with engagement parties, saying yes to the perfect dress, and picking out wedding bands.

Full- Service Wedding Planning

We concentrate on a heightened client experience that serves you throughout all aspects of your wedding planning.

When offering full planning we consider ourselves to be multiple vendors under one roof who can virtually do it all. We ensure your story is told cohesively from start to finish.

Wedding Takeover

Calling all of our ambitious and organized couples who took it upon themselves to start the wedding planning process all on their own- High fives all around!

We know firsthand how much goes into planning a wedding and doing it on your own is no small feat. Perhaps the wedding is coming up faster than you expected, or the further you get into planning the more you realize how much there is to do, and you need a little help getting over the finish line.

Our Wedding Takeover Service is just exactly what you require for the last leg of the race. This is our take on a “Day-Of Coordination” type of service, but it offers a lot more than that. The Takeover provides just the right amount of support throughout the process, and when the big day finally arrives, you can sit back, unwind, and enjoy yourselves, without worrying over the little details you may have missed.

The takeover will begin 2-3 months prior to the big day. We will sit down with you over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine to get to know you as a couple, see what you have completed and where you need a little help!

“Asking for support when you need it most is an expression of self-love”

A la Carte Planning

For our Virgos, Capricorns, Pisces, or other couples that are the list makers, spreadsheet creators, and who thrive in organization, you may find yourself in the grey area between our Full-Service Planning and our Wedding Take Over.

Not to worry! We offer an A La Carte Planning Service where we will create a custom package to meet your specific needs through the planning process. This will include an initial consultation to determine what you need support with.



Maybe you need help with creating a budget breakdown, putting together a detailed timeline for the wedding weekend, choosing the perfect floorplan, creating a detailed seating chart with all names, meal choices, and dietary accommodations,  assistance with booking a third-party vendor, etc. There are always a few tasks that couples struggle with, or just don’t want to do, so we will do the damn thing!

“Do your own thing on your own terms and get what you want”

OUR A LA CARTE PLANNING IS A CUSTOM PACKAGE AND THE PRICE IS DETERMINED BASED ON YOUR NEEDS! This service does not include on-site support for the wedding day* Applicable taxes apply*

Design & Floral Planning

The look, feel and flow of your wedding is one of our favorite parts! We are sure you have looked up every wedding trend on Tiktok, Instagram, and Pinterest and love ALL of the things.

 

We will help you come up with the perfect vision and style for your wedding so you will look back on your perfect day and still gasp at its beauty! 

Perhaps you are “too inspired” (if that’s a thing), and you are trying to decide what to pair back on to fit within your budget- or maybe you just aren’t a creative person and have a hard time coming up with what colours go together, what flowers would look best and are in season all the while balancing the fine line between trending and timeless.
