After all, we all know that any large-scale event, whether it is a charity event, or a corporate event, has a professional planner overseeing it - So, why would a wedding be any different? Whatever the case may be, we are here to help with everything. From the moment we meet for our complimentary sit-down, we begin collecting ideas and inspiration for your special day. We find out what your ideas, your hopes, and budget are and then work off of that to come up with detailed solutions that best fit you as a couple. We go through our database of the best Hawaii Wedding vendors - one which we think will best fit your style, needs, and budget and recommend the top selections. This eliminates countless hours of your own time researching and contacting vendors. We assist you with finding your venue, officiant, florist, DJ, caterer, bartender, hair & makeup stylist, photographer, ...just to name a few. AND ~ we often get special discounts with vendors that we pass on to you:)
In addition to coordinating vendors, we come up with and execute a full design based on your ideas. We assist by taking your vision on style, colors, and theme and pull all of it together to create the best possible visual experience for your dream Hawaii Wedding. We come up with look sheets and samples based on your theme and you decide which direction we go in. We follow through with the organization and execution of all design ideas. We have a professional graphic and event designer at your beck and call. Discounted rates are available for design work. Just a side note, most wedding coordination companies do not include event design or graphic design.
Another service included with Full Coordination is Timeline Development. We take your ideas of how you’d like your wedding to flow and create a customized itinerary of your entire day, from the moment you wake up until the very end when everything shuts down. We fill in every detail from where the bride gets ready, to when the cake arrives, to who’s the next person giving a toast, to surprises given by the groom for the bride, everything. We make sure everything and everyone is where they need to be and when they need to be there. Every little detail that goes into making your wedding day the best ever is thought out and written into this timeline down to the minute. This may seem a little obsessive but we are overly thorough to ensure that everything flows seamlessly. We can throw in ideas of how to add “life” to your reception to keeps guests entertained and happy. We have seen many weddings and know first hand how important a good timeline is to ensuring an amazing day. With each of our clients, the most important thing to us is that first, the bride and groom have their best day ever, and second, that their guests have just as wonderful of a time. Along with creating a customized timeline, we work closely with your master of ceremony ahead of time to go over their speeches and help them make adjustments if necessary so that there is a nice flow to the reception and no awkward moments. We do our best to ensure that your Emcee(s) are prepared and create a good impression for you and your guests.
A important element, but often forgotten about, is Event Layout. We compose a plan that is most ideal for your wedding, making sure that the flow of spaces is just right, that you and your guests are not cramped together or so spaced out that everyone feels disconnected. A detailed event layout is designed to scale. We create seating charts, for both the ceremony and reception. All you have to do as a couple is to fill in your guests accordingly.
Just before your big day, we help coordinate the rehearsal, so that everyone involved in the ceremony knows where they need to be. We follow up with your bridesmaids, groomsmen, toasters, speech-givers, deejays, prayer-givers, parents of the flower girl and ring bearer, etc..and let them know exactly what to expect that day, where to go, and how they fit into the timeline.
Your big day has finally arrived and you feel FABULOUS! And, What is there left to do? Nothing, absolutely nothing. As the bride and groom, all you’re expected to do is show up, get married, and have fun... enjoying the Hawaii Wedding of your dreams! While you sit back, relax and enjoy your day, we continue to make sure everything goes according to plan. We strive to be proactive and tie up any loose ends before they become a problem. Nothing is ever perfect, but we try our best to resolve any issue that may come up. If there’s a problem, we fix it. We are there from the start to the very end that day. We visit with the bride and groom in the morning to check up on any concerns. We are there for the set up of the ceremony and reception spaces - guest tables, florals, settings, table numbers, name-tag, centerpieces, decorations, etc. We coordinate the various vendors. Even before your wedding day, all of your vendors would already have the information they need to perform their services top notch. They’ll have the event layout, timeline, song selections, portrait list, any special instructions and notes. Everyone is in the loop of how your day will go come about.
Essentially we do all the work, with a few minor exceptions, i.e. writing vows. We present you with the best options and you make the decisions. Your involvement with the planning process will be more along the lines of “Yes, I want those centerpieces, that invitation, and this venue...”. We keep you in the loop at all times with photos and progress reports, but you will never see the back-end work we do in an effort to keep things as simple as possible for you. We are always available if you have any questions or if you have any new big ideas. This package was created so that we do all the work and you get to enjoy the process and make all the fun decisions.
