Not sure where to start, but confident you can do the planning yourself? Our consultation service is the perfect solution for couples who want to plan their day, their way, but need just a little help to get started with the planning process.
This is also an excellent solution for couples who have hit a roadblock in the planning process and need a little help getting back on track. Cocktail (or coffee) + Clarity = Our Happy Hour!
OH BOY! YOU’VE JUST GOT ENGAGED… WHAT NOW?
If you did a facepalm when you realized that you’ve got a wedding to plan, but you’re completely clueless on where even to start, or if you’ve been trying to piece together an amazing wedding, but you’re stuck at a certain part of the process, and quite frankly, you’re feeling in over your head – then Happy Hour is your knight in shining armor.
YOU WANT YOUR WEDDING TO BE A DAY FULL OF FUN, LAUGHTER, AND PARTYING ALL NIGHT LONG.
Even though it’s your special day, you want your guests to have a night to remember. You might be clueless about how to plan a wedding, but one thing is for sure – you’re not forking over thousands of dollars on a wedding planner. (No way José). In fact, you’re confident that with a little help, you can create one heck of a rockstar wedding for you and your friends. You just need a “little help.”
HOW DOES IT ALL WORK? WE’RE GLAD YOU ASKED!
We meet up (during happy hour if you’d like), talk details, and in the end, you’ll walk away with a wedding game plan that’ll dance the shoes off your guests. Literally!
Budget concerns? Not a problem. We’ll put a budget together. We’ll show you where to cut back and where to splurge like crazy, all based on how much you want to spend and the kind of experience you want for you and your guests. When it’s all said and done or when the drinks are finished, you’ll have an action plan, a killer list of to-do items, and a timeline on when to book what. The best part? We’ll even share our exclusive list of a few suggested vendors. (Yeah, baby!)
So, there’s only one question left to ask… are you ready to get this party started? If so, join us for Happy Hour. It will be the best 2-3 hour sit down you’ll have!

“We met for coffee and had a long list of questions for our HBIC Wedding Happy Hour.
It was like picking her brain for 3-hours of big picture planning + the vendor guides were beyond helpful! It was reassuring to have the vendor contracts reviewed; Diane found a few missing pieces to our wedding day puzzle from the vendor contract we would have missed.”
