Wedding Planner ~ Tips and Techniques

Getting To Know You

When you choose to hire a wedding planner, you put the most important event of your life in their hands. We take that seriously at Alicia K Designs. Our priority is to ensure your celebration is a personal reflection of your style, not ours.  GETTING TO KNOW YOU is the key to our success. This is what helps us tell your story, making sure your personality shows in every element.

How do you get to know a couple?  We begin with an "interview".  Your wedding planner is in essence an author. You have hired us to tell your story using the details of your wedding celebration as our medium vs. the traditional pen and paper. Like any good journalist or artist, doing our homework and researching our subject is always the first step.

What makes you tick, individually and as a couple? This is what the interview and questionnaire process is all about. We focus on the details of your lives and translate them into the details of the wedding (we have several months to discuss and plan these). The territory we cover is broad and sometimes a bit abstract, but there is always a method to our madness. We want to know about your family and relationships, your favorite vacations and fondest memories. Did you have pets growing up? Do you play an instrument?  What is the color pallet of your bedroom? What's your favorite restaurant? What's your favorite thing to do on a rainy day? Who's your favorite sports team?  All of these details are the ingredients that make you- YOU! These seemingly random questions and conversations give us insight allowing us to reflect you in your party.

Zach and Emily's wedding at Hans Fadden Vineyard (featured above) was incredible. We had so much fun getting to know the couple and then taking on the challenge of weaving their lives and personalities in and out of every element.  From the color palette to the all the amazing DIY details provided by the bride, every element was carefully crafted and executed to ensure that this celebration was a reflection of their lives.  What a great way to begin their new journey!
