What is included in the kit?
Each kit includes the ADVANCED version of my wedding planning workbook. This workbook covers things like finding the perfect vendors, allocating your budget according to your priorities, how to write your vows, creating a day-of timeline with your vendors, and much more. There are more than ten worksheets for you and your partner to complete together to help you establish healthy communication habits and practice making life decisions as a team. The workbook includes a payment tracking spreadsheet, storage space for your vendor contracts, and also a place to keep track of notes. Lastly, the workbook includes a variety of discount codes and offers from some of my favorite vendors.
In addition to the workbook, the kits come with a master checklist fridge magnet, 50 ways to deepen your connection, and everything that you need for a memorable date night. The date night activity in the launch kit is an evening spent around the campfire roasting gourmet s' mores from Madyson's Marshmallows. You will be able to choose between peanut-butter or chocolate-filled marshmallows when you checkout.
Why should I purchase this kit?
I've been to countless weddings and I feel that so often these events are lacking personality and connection with the couple. Which, in my opinion, is such a missed opportunity! My workbook is designed to help you determine what elements are unique to your relationship and to help you explore a variety of ways to incorporate them into your celebration. You'll also be guided through the process of allocating your budget based on what you value most. I don't believe in a standard budget breakdown because every couple is so unique and their priorities often reflect that.
The second element of this kit is the opportunity to create a solid foundation for your marriage. In a world where more than 50% of marriages end in divorce, I wanted to provide a product that would help give couples a fighting chance. By being intentional with your relationship, learning to communicate and make tough decisions together, along with making date nights and a meaningful connection with your partner a top priority, I believe that you will have a much healthier foundation for a lasting and fulfilling marriage.
Why is it so expensive?
On average, most couples spend 500+ hours planning their own wedding. Consider the time and memories that you would have to give up in order to find an extra 500 hours in your life. For those couples who opt to hire a professional wedding planner, these services can cost between $3,500 - $10,000. YOU & ME INTENTIONALLY is not meant to replace hiring a professional, but it will guide you through the wedding planning process to ensure that you don't need to spend countless hours gathering the information necessary to plan your wedding. If you do opt not to hire a professional, I can promise that buying this kit will be the best decision you could possibly make. Not to mention, the discount codes in the back of my workbook will easily save you more than what you will pay for this kit.
What are these worksheets that I keep hearing about in the workbook?
Throughout the workbook, I have created a number of worksheets for you and your partner to complete together. Some of these worksheets include either/or scenarios to help you narrow down what your ideal celebration of love looks like. There are also worksheets to brainstorm your guest list, to rank your potential vendor according to your priorities, to write your vows, and even to create a day-of-contact list. The idea behind these worksheets is that they will provide a constructive environment for you and your sweetheart to discuss your preferences and come to an agreeable decision together. By fostering your communication skills and your ability to make decisions as a couple, you can feel confident that your marriage is being set up for success.
What if I want to hire you after purchasing the kit?
I'd love to work with you! With that being said, I know that the kit is a bit of an investment. That is why I have included a discount for anyone that purchases the kit and then decides that they would benefit from hiring a professional wedding planner. Please send me an email with your purchase receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org. You're also welcome to schedule a complimentary 30-minute consultation call via the link on my website.
Will this help me find vendors?
There is a lot that goes into finding the perfect vendors for your wedding. I cover most of this in the workbook, but I am always happy to help you navigate any challenges that you might face during the process. Additionally, I've included discount codes for a number of my favorite vendors in the back of the workbook.
How do I redeem the discounts?
