Inspired to bring your BIG IDEAS to Life!

Wedding services, event design and detail coordination

The ring is on your finger, the date has been chosen and the venue booked. Now on to the details. What if someone else could handle those details so that you could enjoy being the “guest of honor” at your own wedding? Inked Events provides more than just “Day of Wedding” coordination services. From full wedding planning and execution, to the planning and deployment of your bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner and wedding party gift bags. Our expertise can be your peace of mind.

Full Planning

From booking venues and caterers following your spectacular engagement to delivering payment to the final vendors as they pack up after an amazing reception (and everything in between) our full planning service leaves you free to dream and enjoy. We bring our ideas and experiences to help you to make the best selections for your big day. Th day is all about YOU, but the work of planning doesn’t have to be!

Partial Planning

You’ve booked the venue and met with a few vendors. The big stuff is out of the way – but wow, it’s way too much work to do alone! We assist with selecting the final vendors and making suggestions for detailed items, based on your preferences and vision for your special day.

Wedding “Day of” Coordination

The hard work of planning the wedding is taken care of, but all those pieces need to be pulled together on event day. Every couple should be able to enjoy the guests and activities, but coordinating vendor arrivals, last minute set-ups and the handful of snafus that are bound to occur can take away from the fun. Let us handle those headaches so you can be stress free.

Social Events & Celebrations

Maybe you are too focused on the wedding day to let the other tasks like engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, post wedding brunch, guest activities, welcome bags, or showers slow you down. Luckily, our willing and able staff can help with all of that. We’ll meet to share your vision then, based on your direction, create the perfect pairings to your wedding celebration.

Decorations, Décor and Giveaways

Looking for that special centerpiece or magical element to highlight your theme? We can help. Our vendor partners never let us down, and can make even the most unique bloom request a reality.  Tying it all together, our linen rental program will provide the perfect match.

That’s why you need us

Our mission is to provide you with a worry-free and enjoyable experience – from beginning to end. We get to know you personally, understand your vision and your needs, providing the wedding you dreamed up yourself, without all the work and preparation it takes to execute it alone. No two weddings are ever alike, and we pride ourselves on customizing our services to fit your needs.  Contact us to see if your wedding date is available.

5 Reasons to Hire a Wedding Coordinator

Happy Wednesday!

What are the 5 Reasons why you should hire a Professional Wedding Coordinator and let your friends & family members enjoy your wedding?! Read on to find out….

Lights! Camera! Action! Your wedding’s one of the largest, most significant productions of your life. You and your fiancé are the main characters; your wedding party are the supporting actors.

Why shouldn’t you hire a Professional Wedding Coordinator to keep the cast and crew on the same page? Why let your mom, best friend, or Aunt Dot manage your three-act play {rehearsal, ceremony, reception}? A Professional Wedding Coordinator is the stage manager on your big day—your production.

Here are my Top 5 reasons why you should hire a Professional Wedding Coordinator, also known as a “Day Of Coordinator”:

Reason #1
Attention to Details

An experienced, professionally trained wedding Coordinator has worked a number of events and knows a thing or two about what to do when there’s a problem. We’re quick thinking, on-the-spot problem solvers who take care of any unforeseen matters that may arise, so you don’t have to.

We know the wedding industry and we build a rapport with your chosen vendors to make their jobs easier. Experienced Day Of Coordinators make sure all the details are taken care of as if you did them yourself and works along side with the vendors, so you can enjoy your big day.

Reason #2
Timeline 

A wedding coordinator, worth her salt, will create a detailed timeline to share with you and your vendors. Coordinators know what works and what doesn’t. A timeline serves as a flowchart, keeping track of ALL the important details, including where the key actors {including vendors} should be at all points during the wedding.

Reason #3
Knowledge, Training and Credentials

Be sure to find out if your Professional Wedding Coordinator is certified and well educated on the latest trends, etc. For instance, I am a Certified Wedding Planner and credentialed as a Professional Bridal Consultant™ through the national organization, Association of Bridal Consultants.

There’s no license or specific degree to become a wedding planner. Some planners complete a certification course; others will apprentice to gain their experience or do both. No matter which route we take, we all strive to have knowledge of budgets, timelines, vendors and contracts. My staff is constantly updating skills and keeping up with new trends, exciting vendors and regulations.

 

Reason #4
Stress Relief

A Professional Wedding Coordinator is someone who’s there for you through thick and thin. Like many wedding Coordinators, we, at Inked Events, come onto the planning scene about 8 or more weeks in advance of your big day. It’s our job to be preoccupied with the details—that’s what a stage manager does!

Your guests are celebrating you. They’re excited to see you marry your best friend, but our job is to make sure that all the cast of characters enjoy it. My team has eyes and ears on everything happening throughout the wedding.

There’s nothing like getting an email or phone call saying I’ve helped relieve some major crisis for one of our clients; or a testimonial saying that it was the best decision a newly wed couple ever made in the planning process when they hired us.

Reason #5
Peace of Mind

What price can you put on peace of mind? We know the details of your wedding as well as you do, so rest assured, your wedding will have the look and feel of you without you having to worry about it. I’m the “other” best friend. We build our friendship over the course of your planning process, so I will have intimate knowledge of your wedding. I want to hear about the details of your wedding, am just as excited about them as you are and will help you with any questions you may have.

I develop a relationship with each one of your vendors to coordinate a day that is seamless and perfect. We take care of the behind-the-scenes details, so you don’t have to.

Don’t you want to feel the labor of love you’ve been planning without worrying about the logistics? Hiring a Professional Wedding Coordinator for your wedding is the way to go.
