"Let's Go, Girl"
Full-Service Planning

    Researching wedding vendors, reading endless message boards, devouring countless magazines and
trying to figure out the monthly planning priorities is starting to overwhelm you before you've even
started. You really don't have the 250 hours that it takes, on average, to plan a wedding. You don't want
to be reviewing contracts and playing phone tag, but you
do get excited at the thought of doing tastings
and designing tabletops.

    Enter Kit.  From our first meeting through the wedding day, I'll take care of all the legwork, the
logistics, and every last detail, freeing you up to get involved with all the fun parts of the wedding
planning. Enjoy the peace of mind of having a trusted advisor and friend by your side through this
process, someone who has the knowledge and experience to make your dream wedding come true.

    "Let's Go, Girl" includes all services (except task assembly) listed in the "a la carte menu", below.

"Logistically Speaking"
"Day Of" Wedding Management  

You've picked a date, secured a venue, ordered your wedding gown, chosen a color palette, and hired
all of your vendors. You should be good to go, but it's turning into a jumbled fiasco, and you're
starting to unwind...  Don't let wedding stress get to you.  This is supposed to be fun!

Planning the logistics account for a
HUGE portion of the wedding process, and requires the most
knowledge, experience, and time. It includes careful coordination with all of the vendors, creating a
wedding day schedule that  works, and scrutinizing every detail ensuring  that no stones are unturned.

Let's face it ladies, when 200 people stop to tell you that you've never been so beautiful, that's good -
really good!  When those same 200 people ask you "Where's the restroom", "Where do we put our
gifts", "What time is dinner", "Where's the bar", "Did you order my vegan meal", or "Remember, Aunt
Doris is lactose intolerant"......Well, not so good...   

    "Logistically Speaking" allows you to
be the bride at your wedding.  I become the "point person"
managing every detail, while you enjoy the perfect day you've worked so hard to create.  It's win-win.
