Transcript of "The d tales packages 2011"

  1. 1. Sophisticated Brides want something traditional… Stylish Brides want something new… Sassy Brides want what they want… Smart Brides get expert help!!!
  2. 2. Who we are!!! Although most people find the details involved in event planning daunting, April found she loves the process. It is the organization and attention to detail, that she brought to a climbing corporate career, that makes an event a memorable one (for all the RIGHT reasons!) With an eye for detail and innate sense of style, April believes that every couple deserves their day to be the most spectacular it can be. Since 1997, April Dorsey, company president and wedding consultant, has planned a variety of unique and stylish occasions. Living in Orlando for more than twenty years has given her plenty of resources for planning classy, urban events in the City Beautiful. However, she isn’t limited to Orlando, as she has also coordinated events across the country and internationally. April provides a unique perspective to event planning after her career in the Pharmaceutical industry, as Director of Sales and Marketing. After deciding that it was time to do what she loved, April put her creativity, inter-personal and organizational skills to full-time use and became an event consultant. A current member of the Association of Bridal Consultants, April delivers top-quality service to her clients to create wonderful and memorable celebrations. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Georgia Tech and enjoys travel, music, culinary experiences and spending time with her husband. Why Use a Wedding Planner? On your wedding day you can either be the Bride or the Wedding Planner- not both. Designing and organizing your dream wedding is literally a full time job. Most brides simply do not have the time to devote to coordinating the hundreds of details that go into making their event perfect. It is estimated that the average wedding requires over 100 hours. Trying to plan a wedding on lunch hours and weekends will leave you exhausted and frustrated. Then, after all of your hard work, you will likely spend your wedding day running around checking details, solving problems, and putting out fires. By hiring a wedding planner, you get to make the decisions that mean the most to you while letting someone else worry about contracts, payments, set-up, schedules, details, and unforeseen issues. You'll spend your wedding day with your family and friends. All you have to worry about it being there on time and looking beautiful. Whether you want someone to help you with the design from start to finish, or just need someone to coordinate the details of the event you designed yourself, everyone needs some level of help on their wedding day.
  3. 3. <ul><li>I Want It All </li></ul><ul><li>From initial design to managing the guest list, we will take care of all the D-Tales. </li></ul><ul><li>A wedding- an elaborate process of organization and detail with thousands of things to think about- choosing invitations, managing guest lists/RSVP, locating venues, food, flowers, vendors and contracts. The list goes on and on. Wouldn’t it be amazing to just worry about showing up and enjoying your special day? We are here to help you make that dream a reality. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>  With our “I Want It All ” package, we handle everything……….Yes, EVERYTHING! With a simple review of your budget, priorities and wish list and we will design the most exquisite wedding you can imagine. The “I Want It All” package begins with an in-depth consultation to go over your style and establish your vision for the day. In addition to handling every detail, we supervise all vendor meetings, site visits, tastings, dress fittings- as much as you need us, we are there for you. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Included in this package </li></ul><ul><li>       20 meetings / planning sessions </li></ul><ul><li>  Full use of our online planning tools for interactive planning with our planners </li></ul><ul><li>Wedding Website </li></ul><ul><li>       Customized budget & planning timeline </li></ul><ul><li>        Wedding design advice and execution </li></ul><ul><li>        Venue and vendor research </li></ul><ul><li>        Assistance with contract negotiation </li></ul><ul><li>        Attending vendor interviews with you as required </li></ul><ul><li>       Etiquette and wedding protocol advice </li></ul><ul><li>        Unlimited telephone and email support </li></ul><ul><li>        Everything included in our “I Want You There - Day of Coordination” </li></ul><ul><li>Get an estimate of our services by calling us at 407-687-6552 and a complimentary consultation! </li></ul>2011 Wedding Packages
  4. 4. <ul><li>I Want You to Help Me Finish- </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Our “I Want You To Help Me Finish” Midway planning service is perfect for the bride or host who has already planned a portion of the event but wants a professional team to finish with the final part of the planning and execution. This is the most popular plan for most brides as we will pick up where you left off and all the bride has to do is relax and enjoy the day. </li></ul><ul><li>   </li></ul><ul><li>Included in this package </li></ul><ul><li>        10 meetings / planning sessions </li></ul><ul><li>       A personalized wedding planning website that allows you to track progress on your wedding preparations 24/7 </li></ul><ul><li>       Customized budget & planning timeline </li></ul><ul><li>        Wedding design advice and execution </li></ul><ul><li>        Venue and vendor research </li></ul><ul><li>       Assistance with contract negotiation </li></ul><ul><li>        Attending vendor interviews with you as required </li></ul><ul><li>        Etiquette and wedding protocol advice </li></ul><ul><li>        Unlimited telephone and email support </li></ul><ul><li>        Everything included in our “I Want You There - Day of Coordination” </li></ul><ul><li>Get an estimate of our services by calling us at 407-687-6552 and a complimentary consultation! </li></ul>2011 Wedding Packages
  5. 5. <ul><li>I Want You There- Day of Coordination </li></ul><ul><li>This package is for the bride and groom who want a coordinator present on their Wedding Weekend. We will begin to meet about two months prior to your Wedding Day to talk about the itinerary for the wedding day and make sure that all the little details have been considered. A coordinator will be present at your rehearsal to assure a smooth and effective rehearsal and present the Big Day to assure everyone is in the right place at the right time (from your family and wedding party, to your vendors, to the limo waiting to whisk you away to your honeymoon suite!)

  6. 6. <ul><li>I Want To Talk- Brainstorming Service </li></ul><ul><li>Not every bride needs help throughout the entire planning process so we do offer a “Consultation package” to create a “blueprint” for a perfect wedding day. We will point you in the right direction to have a stress-free planning process. We develop a timeline and budget that you are comfortable with. Included in this session would be the answers to any etiquette questions. The bride and groom will be supplied with vendor recommendations following their consultation in each planning category to contact. </li></ul><ul><li>Included in this package </li></ul><ul><li>       Spend three hours with a certified wedding planner and brainstorm ideas for your wedding day. </li></ul><ul><li>        Develop a master timeline of scheduled tasks from engagement to wedding day. </li></ul><ul><li>        Create a budget that meets your realistic needs. </li></ul><ul><li>        Receive a list of qualified and preferred vendors that fit your budget. </li></ul><ul><li>        If you decide to book one of our other service packages we'll credit $75 to the total cost of any wedding package. </li></ul><ul><li>Get an estimate of our services by calling us at 407-687-6552 and a complimentary consultation! </li></ul>2011 Wedding Packages

  8. 8. <ul><li>Let’s review the Day of Coordination </li></ul><ul><li>The term &quot;Day-Of&quot; for wedding coordination is quite misleading.  Professional wedding consultants do not, and cannot, come in the morning of your wedding after all your months of planning to only coordinate the &quot;Day-of&quot; the wedding.   </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>As with any good executed plan, there must be strategic design, organization, communication, and execution.  Wedding consultants who are hired at the end of the wedding planning process must do a tremendous amount of catch up, no matter what the size of the wedding, to get up to speed on their clients' wedding planning.  The average wedding is planned somewhere between nine and fifteen months.  That means wedding consultants coming in after such a lengthy time period must work harder, longer and faster to conceptualize the wedding vision, your wedding vision.   </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>It is important for every bride to really understand the pricing for this service w hen considering company to perform any wedding planning service. She is hiring that company primarily in the capacity of consulting/planning for the execution of her wedding plan, up to and including the wedding day. Wedding consulting/planning is labor. Labor equals time. Time is the main mechanism by which wedding planners and consultants get paid.   Just like with every &quot;service/labor&quot; company (i.e.:  attorneys, electricians, etc.), there is an hourly labor rate that said earns.   A breakdown of our wedding consultant's time for &quot;Day-of&quot; service looks something like this: </li></ul><ul><li>A minimum of 10 Wedding planning hours to get caught up with YOUR plans </li></ul><ul><li>1 - 2 Hours to coordinate wedding rehearsal and pick up items for wedding </li></ul><ul><li>3 Hours to arrive at the ceremony site before the wedding to oversee plans </li></ul><ul><li>8-12 Hours Wedding and Reception Management </li></ul><ul><li>Up to 1 hour clean up (i.e.: pick up favors, re-pack up items to be returned to clients, etc.) = 28 HOURS of service time MINIMUM </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>As you can see, the wedding consultant did not just show up and manage the “Day Of” the wedding.  She had to &quot;catch up&quot; and &quot;organize&quot; the details so &quot;she&quot; along with &quot;her team” may effectively and efficiently manage the wedding day.  No matter what, a good Wedding planner will give you a stress free day- just show up and celebrate!!! </li></ul><ul><li>Get an estimate of our services by calling us at 407-687-6552 and a complimentary consultation! </li></ul>2011 Wedding Packages
  9. 9. <ul><li>What next? </li></ul><ul><li>Send me an email or call. Don’t hesitate- I love to talk and will answer any questions, and provide you with as much information as possible. No pressure… Just information. </li></ul><ul><li>Lets have coffee! We need to get to know each other better, and for sure you are going to have some questions! This is totally free and no obligation. I like to call it “having coffee with really interesting people.” </li></ul><ul><li>If we get along famously, and you were able to give me some preliminary thoughts on your dream day, we will schedule your second meeting to review a budget and provide you with the services that will best fit your needs. </li></ul><ul><li>Yay or nay- this is where you decide if you are going to have a D-Tale’d event or not </li></ul><ul><li>Now that we have taken care of the important things like getting to know each other, determined our fees, signed contracts etc etc. its time to start planning the most important day of your life. Stress Free! </li></ul><ul><li>Get an estimate of our services by calling us at 407-687-6552 and a complimentary consultation! </li></ul>2011 Wedding Packages
