Among this group of flowers, we can find the mystical bouquet of the bride, the boutonnieres for the groom and the best man, the flower bracelets for the bridesmaids, the decorations of the car, beautiful arches etc.

Process

I want to build a strong collaborative relation with the couples I work with to achieve the result that most resembles or even exceeds their expectations. The key parts of the process are the following:

Please fill out the form to set up a call where we will talk about your expectations and your ideas and also you get a chance to start knowing my work.

Here you will choose which package you would like to acquire, I send you the contract and then we start working together on planning your dream wedding!

I will send you a questionnaire to get a deeper understanding of your vision, ideas and specific services you will need us to coordinate.

After I have gathered all the information necessary we will have a creative briefing in which we will build together a moodboard and select graphic elements that will be the base of the project.

At this stage I will take care of all the coordination with the chosen operators.

This day I will coordinate the wedding from the beginning until the end making sure all details are in place.

At this stage I will thank you from the bottom of my heart for trusting long lasting memories for the organization of your wedding and I will ask you your precious feedback and impressions of the wedding day.

FAQ

A wedding planner allows you to have a selection of the most suitable providers, creating for you the conditions to focus your energy on making specific choices according to your needs. The wedding planner will have direct contact with all providers involved in the wedding for for all the time of the preparation of the wedding. This role will take the stress away from you, leaving only the joy of the decision process and allowing you to enjoy your special day to the fullest. On the day of the wedding and the days leading up to it, Cristina will physically coordinate all the pieces right in the venue to make sure everything turns out as planned. She will be there until the end of the celebration always willing to help when needed.

Of course, Long Lasting Memories will present you with several options for each service that we think may be the best fit, but if you have a pre-existing relationship or prefer another provider you are free to do so.

The list of services is a reference list that you can use to know what you can choose from and start defining what would you like or prefer and what you do not consider necessary (For example, dog sitting, or nannies are not always necessary).

Typically, one year from the approximate date is the suggested time frame for contacting a wedding planner. However, if all the elements are aligned, a wedding can be planned in less than a year!
