Wedding planners are all about the logistics, from vendor referrals and contract negotiation to day-of execution of your vision.
A wedding designer’s role is purely aesthetic and doesn’t include things like contract negotiations or attending appointments alongside the bride.
A wedding coordinator is logistically focused, but on a shorter timeline than a planner. They usually begin helping you prepare a month before the wedding and function as the point person on the wedding day.
We are all living in uncertain times. We will endeavour to accommodate you to the extend permitted by the process.
If your dress has already been completed or awaiting second/final fitting, we are unable to store your dress beyond the quoted timescales (subject to government rules).
However, post collection, we are happy to schedule a free fitting with our designer closer to your wedding date for you to discuss any additional alterations.
