This will be the time to confirm arrival and departure times, special needs such as power for the band or DJ, playlists and schedule, photo schedule and locations, wedding processional and ceremony songs, review of rental items, rental company needs and deliveries and pick ups. The timeline will be shared and reviewed with bride/groom, host location and all vendors. This part of the planning process is critical to the success of the event.
Month-Out Meeting A phone or personal meeting between four and two weeks out from wedding
At this time, Juniper events will need to be provided with all vendor information (contracts if available) with contact numbers, email etc. After contacting each vendor with specific needs and arrival times etc, a preliminary timeline will be constructed from the meeting, working from start to end of the day. This is to be punctuated by timing for rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, photo times, wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner service, planned toasts or dances, cake cutting etc.
