At Eventful Planning, we strongly believe that couples should not have to work or be stressed-out on their wedding day! Our month-of coordination services (also known as day-of services) are perfect for you if you are planning all the details of your fabulous wedding, start to finish, and simply want a trusted wedding professional to coordinate & manage the day so that you can relax and enjoy it.
Don't let the description fool you, month-of actually starts at least two months in advance. This allows us to completely understand the intricacies of your big day, review what you've completed & what's left to be done. We make sure we know and understand every detail so when the day comes, you can completely enjoy your unforgettable event.
