EVERY WEDDING IS UNIQUE
A timeline will be custom designed by Autumn for YOUR wedding. Every wedding is different, no two are exactly alike. The process for building your timeline will look something like this.
At your first consultation, before even signing a contract, we’ll talk about your vision for the big day. Your thoughts on the type of ceremony you’re planning and what type of reception events you think you will do. This preliminary talk will help me guide you to the right package to book based on number of hours I think you’ll need. Don’t worry though, you can always upgrade later if you decide you need more hours when we finalize your timeline closer to the wedding.
Six months before your wedding I’ll send you a details packet to start filling out, which will be questions about the final details. I will gather personal information, special requests, family photo list, and times for makeup, ceremony, cocktails and dinner.
From this packet, I’ll put together a google doc with your final timeline that I propose for the entire day and a full cheat sheet for myself for your wedding day. Everything from when you get dressed to when we take bridal party photos will be on this timeline. That doc will be shared with you and you can then make adjustments. Once finalized and confirmed by both you and myself, I’ll print that to be my workflow for the day. Keeping you on track is an important task that I take seriously.
