What does your full-service option provide for brides and their families?
This option provides the ability to enjoy the planning process and most importantly the wedding day. Too often we speak with brides who are overwhelmed and stressed out by the wedding planning process, which can take an emotional toll on anyone. At Regalo Design, we strive to build relationships with our clients so that we can better serve them not just on the day of, but throughout the whole experience. To us, it is more than just planning a wedding. We actually care that your day is perfect as you begin your life with the one you have chosen to spend forever.
How is this offering different from a partial planning session with Regalo?
It doesn’t matter which service a bride chooses, we still have to do the same amount of work on the day of. The difference with the partial planning package and the full-service option is time and connections. The partial planning begins two months prior to the wedding. For some brides, this is all they need, but for others, they feel overwhelmed at the thought of completing all of the details in the final months leading up to the wedding. For the full service option, at the two-month point, we are almost done with the details of the day so that they can relax and enjoy time with family, friends, and most importantly…their fiancé!
Does the full service package provide florals, linens, and rentals?
The full-service planning package includes full-service planning from engagement to wedding day, as well as our planning center, a rehearsal coordinator, day-of staff to take care of full set up and tear down, and flowers and décor such as centerpieces, draping, & lighting. We are not a rental company, so we do not have tables, chairs, tents, dance floors, linens and china. However, we do book all of that for our clients if needed through amazing rental companies. We DO have all of the embellishments such as centerpieces, arches, lanterns, table embellishments, draping, string lights, up lights, and all of the décor pieces that create the atmosphere on your wedding day.
What kinds of things do brides and their families most appreciate about going with a full-service package with Regalo?
They appreciate the fact that we are their advocate and we have their best interest in mind. Damon and I had an amazing wedding day, but that day was almost 10 years ago. Our job is not to give our clients OUR wedding day; our job is to give them THEIR wedding day! We do this by listening to what our clients want and what their needs are. It isn’t about us or anyone else on that day. It is all about the bride and groom! We truly stay focused on that and try to avoid outside factors that can ruin a bride & groom’s day.
What would you say to a bride who is considering going with a day-of package or trying to plan their wedding on their own?
At the very least, find a day-of planner. There are so many things that can happen on the day-of and it is so important to have a professional in place on the wedding day to take care of any situations that might arise.
What is your favorite part of the wedding day?
My favorite part is when I close the doors before the bride enters the ceremony. I am standing there with just the bride and whomever is walking her down the aisle. There is such peace in that moment that is unexplainable. The emotion is so raw and genuine and every week when I see a bride who is about to see her groom, it amazes me. Very few people get to experience this moment and I am so blessed to be a part of it. In that moment, we are reminded that this is what it is all about, and it is wonderful to see the bride’s love just waiting to burst through the doors to greet her groom.
