Weddings

I DO was set up with the aim of creating sensational weddings in the North, and we have now expanded to cover Hertfordshire and the surrounding counties.

We love everything to do with weddings and thoroughly enjoy embarking on a fun and creative journey with every new couple that we meet.

Whether it’s a chilled out garden party, full on glamour or something completely different, we can’t wait to work with you.

Our services are bespoke and will be tailored to fit your exact requirements.  We will be happy to take on as much or as little as you need.

Our main aim is to advise and help, not to take over completely - ensuring that you still feel a part of your own wedding.

So whether you are newly engaged or have already started planning your wedding, we can help to design, plan & manage something extraordinary.

I DO: FOR WEDDINGS THAT WOW

 

Complete Wedding Design & Co-ordination

Planning a wedding can consume your life; taking on average 250 hours.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to relax and enjoy the preparations without any stress?

Our ‘complete’ service is our favourite as we can really get to know you and take time to plan something spectacular!  Working with you right from the beginning of your wedding planning journey means that you get the most out of us.  You still get to make all the fun decisions, but don’t have the worry that often comes with planning a wedding.

Planning – We provide a timeline counting down to your wedding so that you  understand what is being worked on at any time.  We can manage your budget for you.  We source, negotiate and manage a venue and suppliers for you.  We provide you with regular updates and are always on hand to provide general advice and support.

Design - We transform your vision into reality. Colours, fabrics, samples and photographs can be put together to help you to visualise what your day will look like.

Management – A successful wedding day takes a great deal of co-ordination.   We style the venue, create and manage a schedule of timings for the day and liaise with your suppliers.

With I DO managing & co-ordinating the whole event, you can relax and enjoy the run up to your big day.

Final Stage Assistance

Started planning your wedding yourself but feeling confused?  Too many decisions to make and feel like banging your head against a brick wall?

If you think that you might walk down the aisle stressed and exhausted our ‘final stage’ service could be for you.  We meet with you a few months before your wedding and take over the management of the day.  We help you to remember why you got engaged in the first place and give you back your life. 

We analyse your current plans, recommend anything that is outstanding and advise you if we think anything needs changing.

We make sure that we know your plans as well as you do and work with your chosen suppliers to create a fabulous and fun wedding day for you.

On the day we are there to set up, manage and co-ordinate the whole wedding so that you focus on each other and your guests.

Let I DO help to make sure that you enjoy your big day and can start to look forward to it again.

Wedding Day Management

Planned your own wedding but want to be able to relax and enjoy the day?

No bride should be decorating a marquee on the morning of her wedding or having last minute worries over unforeseen problems.

Hiring I DO to manage your day means that you can enjoy your months (or years) of hard work and focus on having a good time.

We meet with you two weeks before your wedding and gather all of the information about your day.  We then provide a wedding day schedule and contact all of your suppliers just before the wedding to run through your expectations (to avoid last minute hitches).

On the day we are there to set up, manage and co-ordinate the whole event so that you can relax and have some fun!

 

Venue Search

Choosing your venue is probably the most important decision that you will make about your wedding; it is the key to the ambience for the whole event.

It takes time to find a venue with the right style and image to give you the wedding that you want.  Combining this with the right setting, capacity, availability and facilities can seem almost impossible.

With exceptional knowledge of the North we are able to advise you on the venues that best fit your requirements; we also know some more unusual, less public venues that can be harder to find.

Following an initial conversation to understand your desires, we provide you with a report shortlisting venues and their relative merits.  We can also accompany you on visits to highlight how those properties may be transformed to fulfil your vision.

 

Consultancy

Our time and experience can be bought in 2 hour slots.

As an engagement present – What better gift for a newly engaged couple than someone to focus their ideas and fuel excitement about their big day.  We can help them to focus on the important issues, provide a timeline for planning and give hints and tips on where to search for ideas.

To reduce the pressure – We’ve all known a stressed out bride, groom or mother of the bride.  Gifting our services could provide a little bit of assistance and clarity for a loved one.  It’s not easy to manage everything yourself and it’s often hard to see the woods from the trees when you have been so involved in a project for such a long period of time.

Whether it’s design inspiration, budgeting advice, etiquette, help creating an overall schedule for the day or just a fresh perspective, our consultancy service could be the answer.

Fees

Our services are bespoke and as such there is no standard pricing structure. To discuss any of our services please get in touch for a free initial consultation. Examples of our services are below:

We do not accept any commission from suppliers and any discounts obtained are passed on to our clients, this often results in a lower cost than if you had planned the wedding yourself. We are thus able to retain our independence in our approach to your wedding.
