Yes you heard me…two weeks. Take a look at this timeline to see how we designed a wedding in two weeks.
THURSDAY – Receive a phone call from the potential client asking for an estimate on designing her ceremony/wedding (micro wedding) in the basement of her sister’s house. We go through some questions, so that I have all the information to put my proposal together.
FRIDAY – Make a few phone calls to a couple of vendors to get ideas on pricing (made a quick call to Floral Fixx and asked them, can you do this!) and then formulate the PROPOSAL. Send it off the client.
SATURDAY – Client calls me on my cellphone, decides to move forward. We book a quick design meeting for Tuesday.
SUNDAY + MONDAY – Sacha researches like a little nut!
TUESDAY – Design power hour. We go through her inspirations in depth, colors, flowers, likes, dislikes etc. I feel like we have a good grasp, now on to the design plan.
WEDNESDAY – I booked a walkthrough at the client’s sisters home to take measurements and photos so that I can start with the floorplan. One of the brides requests was to completely transform the unfinished basement into a neutral beautiful venue = DRAPING. I also had a late night that night working on the design plan, so that it would be ready for presentation the next day.
THURSDAY – Present the design plan to the client. A couple of tweaks but on to the QUOTE REQUESTS. At this time I had already given the vendors a heads up, and new they were available for the date. (Draping, Rentals, Lighting, Florals etc)
FRIDAY – Designing Stationary
SATURDAY – Packing List and Set up and Take Down Timeline
SUNDAY AND MONDAY – Communicating with the vendors and editing the budget.
TUESDAY – Final Meeting with the client. Final Setup and Takedown Timeline to all the vendors.
WEDNESDAY – Final Checklist, pick ups or any shopping.
THURSDAY – SET UP PART 1 – Draping install and Furniture Delivery and pick up of stationary. That night was a late one, assembling, making sure everything was packed and ready to go for the next day.
FRIDAY – SET UP DAY!!!!!
SATURDAY – THE BIG DAY!
