Partial planning & Coordination

Starting between $2,500 and $3,500 depending on customization.

This package has become super popular with clients needing just a little bit of guidance on things they've been struggling with or aren't sure of.  In addition to event coordination, you'll  receive a planning checklist and guidance on next steps! Is planning manageable but still struggling with design (florals, rentals, tableware, etc)?  We can help with that too!  Clients love the monthly check ins we'll have each month.

Customizable for partial planning, this can include but isn't limited to:

  • Design help (from colors, theme, signage, décor, invitations, and all other extra accents)

  • Vendor research, interviews, proposals, and acquisition

  • Budget planning and maintenance 

  • Monthly productive meetings to go over to-dos and next steps

  • Guest list management

Popular Questions

 

What services do you offer?

What's the payment schedule?

Do you do design as well?

I can customize my services to whatever you need.  I specialize in what is most often referred to as "day-of" or "month-of" coordination.  To me, it's way more than that!  It's wedding day management and logistics coordination!

can you help with vendors?

YES!  NO MATTER WHAT!  I will always distribute to the vendors to make sure everyone knows the flow for the day!

Each wedding is different, and everyone's needs vary.  My contracts outline how involved I can be with your vendor needs.  Do you need help looking for, choosing, and hiring?  I can help select a few if needed.  I will always oversee and communicate with vendors the day of to make sure the timeline stays on track and they get what they need.

Do you create the timeline?

For most packages, I require 25% to book and hold your date and the remaining is due 60 days before your event.  Payment for any a la carte hours added is required 1 week before event.  I may split it into 3-4 payments depending on how far out your event is.  

I travel for any event within 45 minutes of Frederick (21701) at no charge.  Anything further than 2 hours requires overnight stay and compensation for a hotel.

If you need linens, tableware, décor, help with stationary, I am down to help design for an additional fee!

Hiring Sarah at Sleeping Bee Designs was easily the best decision that my husband and I made for our wedding. Sarah independently scheduled meetings and communicated with all of my vendors, and was very patient while I got organized...We had our DREAM wedding, and I cannot thank Sarah enough for all the work she did. Hiring her team is ABSOLUTELY worth the money. If you are on the fence about it, HIRE HER!!!
