Most people stop making progress when the task becomes daunting or they feel out of their element.
Don’t allow overwhelm to drag you down and know when to call in the professionals for that extra boost.

food, bar, and rental consultations:

How does Friendor support work?
At the Consultation, you can expect to cover:
YOUR CEREMONY: Who’s walking with whom, where they’re standing, what they’re saying and everything in between.
YOUR DAY OF TIMELINE: We get to the nitty-gritty of your day. I’m talking down to when the champagne needs to be poured because the toasts are happening at X time. No stone is left unturned.
This portion also covers responsibilities. For example, who is responsible for hanging your lanterns? Who will be taking the floral home? Who will meet vendors upon arrival? Who will be your vendor contact for the day of (and no, it’s not you, your fiancé or your mom…) No task will go unclaimed!
YOUR VENDOR CONTACT LIST: Following a very easy to read template, we plug in your vendors into this wedding packet so everyone has everyone’s contact information and knows of arrival times—no excuses!
YOUR RENTAL PLANNING: With my deep knowledge of F&B logistics due to the nature of our company’s offerings, I can co-create your rental list for you so all you need to do is take it to your preferred rental company and know you haven’t forgotten a thing! You probably haven’t even considered renting an ice caddy have you? Or even know what that is? Exactly. That’s where my expertise comes into play.
Within 5 business days of our meeting, you’ll receive your digital copy of a 7-13 page Wedding Plans Packet. It will be color-coded indicating your to-dos as well as coded for vendors to see where they need to answer certain questions (i.e. when is your arrival time?).
You’ll also be provided with a cover email template to use when sending this packet to all of your vendors.
After receiving the meeting and receiving your packet, our work together is completed, however, you might have more questions come up. I include one complimentary post meeting call/email for you to fire away whatever is on your mind. Any other correspondence for advice or consultations will be considered billable hours.
