Sian Chaplin Events has been booked to coordinate the wedding of Tessa Sheppard and Thomas Harding on Friday 3 June 2022 at Tessa’s family home in Bossall. The agreement also includes RSVP management from approximately January 2022.

On the Day Coordination – the package includes;

– Venue site visit to discuss ideas, timings and offer general advice. I usually suggest we arrange this any time from six months before the wedding as by this point you have most of the suppliers booked.

– Preparation of the schedule from six weeks before your wedding that will outline the suppliers, timings of set up, contact details etc. All suppliers will receive a copy so that they are fully aware of the arrangements. I will also discuss this with you and make sure you are happy with everything before it gets sent to everyone involved. You will also receive a copy to pass onto the bridal party etc.

– Liaising with all suppliers so that they are fully aware of the arrangements from six weeks before your wedding. Sian to email Tessa when she requires the supplier information as well as details on timings, wedding party etc.

– Full day coordination from early morning until late evening.

– Advice throughout the planning via phone, email or in person. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like any advice no matter how far in advance you book.

RSVP Management – the package includes;

– Creation of a spreadsheet with a full list of guest names along with their contact details. You will have access to this throughout so that you can take a look and have an update whenever you like.

– Support with the RSVP section of the wedding website (or however you decide to collate responses).

– RSVP’s to come directly to my email address so that I can keep the spreadsheet up to date with responses and dietary requirements (I suggest from January time).

– Chasing of guests who haven’t responded by the deadline (I will need their contact details in advance)

– All guest information sent to the catering team once you have checked all responses and created a table plan.
