Jenkins and Co. is a full service wedding planning firm based in Charlotte, North Carolina serving couples throughout the Southeast.
This might be an unpopular opinion, but if you hang around long enough you might notice we have a few of those. One of the wedding services that is difficult to identify is partial wedding planning. Partial wedding planning lies between full wedding planning and design and wedding day management, but other factors are also at play. Let’s identify first what is partial wedding planning, discuss the difference between partial wedding planning and full-service wedding planning, and why we now prefer to offer full-scale wedding planning to our Charlotte, North Carolina clients.
Simply said, partial planning implies that “I take care of certain aspects of your wedding planning, but not all of them.” In most cases, partial wedding planning comprises all the services for wedding day management and extra services to suit the couple’s needs. Due to its nature, it can mean something different for each couple, and that’s the trickiest part of partial wedding planning.
Partial wedding planning is for couples who only need help with specific areas along the way. Maybe the couple has already secured the wedding and reception venue but requires assistance from other vendors. Or perhaps the couple wants to host a small wedding but needs help. When a couple expresses interest in a Wedding Day Management package but falls short of what is offered in the complete package, wedding planners describe their service as “partial.”
For full wedding planning and design, the wedding planner will work with the couple from the very start of their engagement. By collaborating with the couple from the beginning, the wedding planner can learn what’s essential and create the ideal, opulent day. Wedding planners also assist you in planning the perfect wedding within your price range.
Additionally, full wedding planning will source and communicate with all the vendors. It doesn’t matter if it’s the florist they want to work with or the fantastic DJ they saw at a friend’s wedding. The wedding planner will confirm everything and keep track of payments and schedules, liaising with all parties involved in the lead-up to the big day.
As a wedding planning company based in Charlotte, North Carolina, we have found that our sweet spot with planning weddings offers our clients a full-service planning experience. From our perspective, there is really no way to “partially” plan a wedding. In the past, when we offered this service, we missed getting to know our clients on a deeper, more personal level and infusing more meaningful details into their special day. We love to have a more hands-on approach and provide guidance from start to finish so there is no detail left missed. If you were to hire someone to clean your home, for example, would you ask them to clean it partially? No way!
If you have an idea of what’s important to you for your special day but would prefer someone to handle every detail flawlessly, then the perfect service to avail yourself of is full-service wedding planning. With Jenkins & Co. Weddings, you can unwind as we design a genuinely extraordinary wedding meticulously organized down to the last detail.
