Wedding Planning Tips: Understanding the Wedding Design Process

I get the same question all the time about wedding planning: Where do I even begin? And every time, I tell brides you can begin by consulting with a designer who can help put the entire process into perspective based on your specific needs and budget. So, I’m super excited that wedding planner and event designer Michelle Gainey of Lemiga Events agrees with me! She breaks it all the way down for you. Read on!

From Michelle Gainey:

“As a wedding planner that specializes in design, I not only assist my clients with planning and logistics, but also guide them through the design process. We get to know our clients through an extensive questionnaire to better understand their style, interests, and what they want to convey with their wedding design.”

“Most couples getting married have ideas on color scheme and different elements that they want to incorporate, but aren’t sure how to put it all together. We take your ideas and make them cohesive, first by starting with an inspiration board so we know we’re on the right track, and then by delivering a fully detailed Wedding Design Book.”

“Our Wedding Design Book becomes the vision for the team of vendors to follow. While your stationery vendor may only see the paper, and the linen vendor only sees the tables, as the wedding designer and planner, we have the big picture in mind and lead the vendor team to bring all the components of the day together in one cohesive design.”

“We help you maximize your budget by offering ideas and suggestions that will give you the biggest impact. There’s always the moment when reality sets in once we have all the design proposals and need to figure out where to cut to work within the budget. I help my clients understand what is essential and what they won’t miss on the wedding day. For example, lighting is always essential to an evening reception to create ambiance in a room. If your gorgeous flower arrangements are in the dark, what good was the money you spent? Scaling back a little on flowers to allow for lighting will create a dramatic effect and allow your flowers to shine in a dark room.”

“Guiding our couples through the design process from concept to reality is one of the most gratifying aspects of what I do. I live for the moment when they see their wedding for the first time and it’s better than they dreamed it would be!”
