Adhering to codes of business practice of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners of which she is a Director, she doesn't accept commission from her suppliers; any company that is recommended has been personally vetted and most likely worked with before.

Full Planning And Design

The full planning and design option is Dream Occasions' signature service. They will produce a timelessly elegant wedding from start to finish. The process will begin with a meeting to ascertain your wedding wishes and ideas, as well as reciprocally getting to know you, after which a detailed budget and prospective timeline will be produced.

Bernadette can plan your wedding event within any timeframe, whether you have 3 months or 18, so you can rest assured that it will all be done with a calm, professional and personal manner that caters to your individual needs.

Cost Of Full Planning Service - 15% of your agreed budget or minimum fee of £5000 including VAT

Three-Month Partial Planning

Alternatively, you could opt for the Dream Occasions three-month partial planning service. This is ideal for couples who have done all the major planning but would prefer a professional to take over coordination in the final months. This service starts no more than 12 weeks before and can only be booked six months in advance of the big day.

The service includes a meeting and review of your wedding plans to date, plus written confirmation and production of wedding-day schedules, as well as recommendations for suppliers and unlimited email support. An experienced wedding coordinator will be in attendance for nine hours on your wedding day to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Cost Of Three-Month Partial Planning Service - £1,500
