What services do you offer?
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?
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?
YES! NO MATTER WHAT! I will always distribute to the vendors to make sure everyone knows the flow for the day!
What's the payment schedule?
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.
Do you travel?
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.
of events do you do?
Weddings, company events, birthday parties, anniversaries, whatever, just ask!
Do you do design as well?
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!!!
