The Importance of Nailing down a Day-Of Itinerary

The Importance of Nailing down a Day-Of Itinerary

On your wedding day you want everything to go as smoothly as possible. You’ve hired a planner or coordinator to help things along but you’re being hit with time lines from everyone. Your photographer has a timeline, your DJ, cake, caterer are all showing up at different times, and you feel a little helpless. This is where a Day-Of Itinerary can help.

Most planners and coordinators will help you set up your day-of itinerary (also known as flight plans or schedules) by combining all of the different timetables you’ve been given into one timeline while also setting a plan for when you want to do dances, exits, and compiling song lists. Not only will this help with organization, but it will allow everyone to know where they should be and when.

When making our itineraries, we typically try to start with the photographers time table and then add in arrival times of the DJ, Cake, and caterer. Next we add in the name and order of bridesmaid and groomsmen and the songs chosen by the bride for processional, unity ceremony, first dances, etc. Below is an example of what one of our itineraries looks like!Flightplan

We typically give a copy of this to both mothers, the DJ, the Photographer, the venue coordinator, and the officiant so that everyone is on the same page!

When attending a wedding, it might seem a little awkward to take home a gift. Now we’re not talking about stealing one of the happy couple’s gifts, but a gift from the happy couple themselves! Most couples want to have some type of favor that guests can take home to remember their wedding and thank friends and family for the love and support they’ve shown throughout the couple’s relationship. Don’t be afraid to take home what was meant for you!

These favors are going to have your guests begging to take them all home!

Wild and Gorgeous: A Banquet Dinner

We were recently given a chance to provide flowers for our Chamber of Commerce’s Banquet. We were so thrilled with how the finished product looked we couldn’t wait to share it!

We wanted it be classy but trendy. We loaded our arrangements with silver dollar eucalyptus and created each arrangement to be unique. Our candelabras for the head table contained a wreath stuffed with Cyprus, eucalyptus, and ivy with flowers dropped in the add color and class.img_0550img_0562img_0559img_0560img_0563img_0564img_0561
