Are you

  • a busy professional?

  • unorganized or an inexperienced couple (first time marriage for both)?

  • a wealthy individual or one with disposable income?

  • a couple that want a stress-free planning process and wedding or event day?

  • a budget conscious couple that realize you can save time and money with a wedding or an event planner?

  • ready for a free 1-hour telephone consult 

If your answer is "YES" to any question above, you should create a wedding specific email address.  The wedding specific email address will help you to send or receive emails related to your wedding in one place, instead of  using a bride or groom's personal email account.  The wedding specific email address can also be deleted post wedding.  The wedding email should look similar to the following, jackandjillswedding@gmail.com and once created, you can send an email to detailedweddingsandevents@gmail.com or call our answering service at:  803-968-3321 and request a Wedding Needs Analysis Telephone Consult.  A Wedding Needs Analysis is a series of questions that will help to determine what has and what needs to be accomplished for a wedding client, and the consult is free.  The Wedding Needs Analysis is a comprehensive form, and it will require a 1-hour block of time to complete the first half over the phone.  The remaining hour is completed in-person.

  • Wedding Etiquette Consultation Fee - Our etiquette consulting service is $50 for a one hour consult and cost $25 for  30 minutes.  Consulting work is conducted in person and mostly benefits a couple needing guidance or etiquette questions answered such as how to line-up a wedding party, how to seat divorced or remarried parents, what is the order for a ceremony or reception, how to build an invitation suite, how to address invitations protocol, how to manage the guest list and who pays for what etc.

  • Officiant Fee - For the officiant to attend a one to two-hour wedding rehearsal, the fee is $107 with tax, and for the officiant to officiate a ceremony, the fee is $53.50 with tax.  If you want the officiant at the wedding rehearsal and the wedding ceremony, the total is $160.50.  For more information, please select the Wedding Officiant page in the menu.

 

  • Emcee Fee - The fee is $50 per hour from the A La Carte list of services, before tax.  The emcee service is included free of charge in a full, partial or day-of planning & coordinating service.

  • Pipe & Drape Backdrops - Backdrop installations on site vary per the design, fabric type, fabric length (will the fabric hover above the floor or the fabric is long enough to create puddes), fabric price per square foot and any other applicable fees.  We work with the following types of drapery designs for your reception or event:

 

a.  Set-up & tear-down cost is $4.75 per crossbars quantity, without embellishments and $5 with embellishments

b.  One panel Backdrop Rental (also called a frame) of a pipe and drape backdrop, measuring 8 ft x 10 ft  or 10 ft x 10 ft (lxw= 80 sq ft or lxw = 100 sq ft) is multiplied by the cost per sq ft of the fabric type you choose

c.  Perimeter draping is used to cover all walls in an entire room.  The price is determined by adding the length of all wall mearsurements, to arrive at a combined linear feet total (some venues have more than four-wall-shaped rooms, and some are larger than most).  For instance, if the left and right sides of the local Civic Center's walls are 166 LF x 2 walls, it equals 332 LF and rounded to the nearest ten, that is higher than 332 LF, is 340 LF. 

 

Also, if the room has three other walls  to cover and the total  measurement is 3 x 98 LF, it will equal to 294 LF, and rounded to the nearest ten that is higher than 294 LF ft, is 300 LF.  Afterwards, one must add the 340 LF  to 300 LF for a total of 640 LF, and the 640 LF is divided by 10 feet wide panels (frames) needed, for a total of 64 ten-feet-wide panels needed to cover the perimeter walls of an entire room. 

 

As for the price of pipes and drapes per set, it can cost as low as $120 each to rent each 10Ft wide hardware set.  A hardware set includes two 20 to 35 pound bases, two uprights, a crossbar and three to four 16' to 20' drapes.  The cost of 64 sets of pipes and drapes x $120 can cost $7,680 before tax, set-up, breakdown, delivery and pick-up costs.  That is the cost for a building as large as the Civic Center.  For a smaller buidling, 1/3 the size of the Civic Center or half the size, one can expect to pay approximately $2560 or $3840 for perimeter draping.

d.  We also offer installation of a photo backdrop, sweetheart table or head table backdrops.  Prices vary by hardware and type of fabric, width and length.  Normally, one 10Ft wide pipe and drape hardware set is used, and the price is much lower than perimeter draping.  Contact us for answers to your questions, concerns or pricing.

  • Destination Wedding & Honeymoon, Retie the Knot (a ceremony), Anniversarymoon (a 1st or 2nd honeymoon) or Just Because Vacation Fees  - A full payment is required when you book your destination.  As a member of the Association of Bridal Consultant (ABC), we can offer destination weddings, honeymoons, retie the knot  or vacations bookings via ABC's Travel Division only.  ABC is a primary partner with Sandals, Beaches and Grand Pineapple Beach Resorts in the Caribbean.  Clients pay for their travel, lodging and meals when they find a destination, honeymoon or retie the knot ceremony for two and you book directly when using the portal.  The portal is accessible by clicking any of the banners or links on the "Destination Weddings, Honeymoons & More" page in the menu.  For more information or for us to help you with your booking, contact us for direct assistance. 
 
While honeymoons and retie the knot travel,  cost less for a travel party of two, a destination wedding can range as low as $10,000 and higher for 30 to 50 guests in attendance.   The planning and coordinating cost is $2000, and the fee for a full wedding planner and coordinator's travel, lodging and meals are not included in the planning and coordinating price.  However, you may choose to hire a local wedding planner and/or coordinator in the city or country where you wish to marry.  Some of the wedding planners/coordinators also serve as travel agents.

SET-UP & BREAKDOWN OF GUEST TABLE FLATWARE, DINNERWARE & DRINKWARE FEES - ​Do you know that there is a difference between hors d'oeuvres and appetizers?  Hors d'oeuvres are foods that can be held and eaten with one hand while standing and are often accompanied by cocktails in the other hand, during a Cocktail Hour.  If the couple is not planning to have a Cocktail Hour, due to having a First Look photograph session earlier in the day, they can serve hors d'oeuvres as a First Course when everyone is seated.  If the couple will not be present for the Cocktail Hour, because they are scheduled for pictures with a photographer, the hors d'oeuvres served during the Cocktail Hour is the First Course and appetizers can be served as a Second Course when everyone is seated in the reception space.  Appetizers are small bite-size portions of foods to be eaten before a main dish is served  and to stimulate an appetite, thus making one hungry before a meal.
 
Pictured below is a 12 Course Meal outline that you can use as a starting basis to organize your wedding reception menu card.  Traditional formal wedding receptions include a three to four course plated meal for all guests in attendance.  Popular formal wedding receptions include main dishes that are visually appealing and are considered as fine dining favorites.  They are filet mignon, lobster and rack of lamb.  On the average, a three course to four course meal can be consumed in about an hour to two hours.  Champagne, wine and cocktails are the traditional drink choices for formal wedding receptions, but lemonade or iced tea is acceptable for a casual buffet style reception dinner.  Four other reception dinner styles are also noteworthy -  the family style, cocktail style and food stations.  Today's modern weddings, provide couples an opportunity to be creative with signature drinks, trendy cocktails and beers.  Here is a picture of a formal place setting from www.herewearewithluci.com Follow the Link Here 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
When viewing the glassware in the image above, a few changes are needed for the order of glasses, in preparing for a wedding reception pre-dinner "Welcome Toast" that is planned to be printed on the reception program. The water goblet is in the correct spot, but the cordial/sherry glass needs to switch places with the champagne flute, because the champagne flute will be the first glass to be picked up for the pre-dinner toast, and it will need to be closer to the right hand.  There is a method to the madness.  It is simply that all of the glasses should be placed on the table in the order that they will be used, 
 
If the host is not planning to have a pre-dinner toast, but is planning to serve one of the following - fish, seafood, chicken, duck or turkey as a first main dish, the white wine glass will be the first glass and the closest to the right hand.  If beef will be the second main dish, a red wine glass will be placed to the left of the white wine glass.  The red wine glass is typically taller and has a larger bowl than the white wine glass.  The tip to remember here is - always serve white wine with white meat dishes, and serve red wine with red meat dishes, such as beef, pork or lamb.  If you were to ask - is it best to serve red or white wine at a wedding reception?  I would suggest that the white wine be used.  It's easier to blot out white wine on a white wedding dress if there is a spill, than it it is to blot out red wine.  
 
If the host is planning to serve a a dessert, such as wedding cake or a sheet cake for example, a cordial or sherry  will pair well with the dessert course.  The cordial is a stomach soothing liqueur.  For fruit flavors, a host may want to try such brands as Grand Marnier (cherry) or Chambord (raspberry).  For coffee flavored liqueurs, a host can try the Tia Maria or Kahlua brands.  If the host is not planning to serve cordial, but decides to serve sherry instead, which is a sweet fortified wine.  Fortified means that a spirit was added to it - the host may want to try Godiva Chocolate Liqueur.  It contains the taste of chocolate with a kick.  The cordial or the sherry is served after dinner and at the start of the dessert course, and they help to improved digestion.  A cordial or sherry is meant to be sipped after it is poured from a bottle and into a cordial or sherry glass.  The cordial or sherry glass is placed to the left of the red wine glass.  
 
The wait staff can provide tableside service during the dessert course, using a cordial or sherry cart, or a host can decide to have guests walk to the open bar with their glass and a bartender can pour either the cordial or sherry.  Afterwards, the guests can pick-up their dessert plates from a dessert station. when returning to their seats.  If a host has opted to buy event insurance for the event day, and the venue allows guests to self-pour,  the host can also set up a Cordial or Sherry Station as a self-service. 
 
Last of the glasses is the water goblet.  The water goblet's purpose is for a dining guests to sip after each course, in order to clean their palates before tasting the next course.  Adding a slice of lemon to the water, serves as one of the best solutions to use as a palate cleanser.
Did you see the word "consomme" in the place setting image above and wondered, what is a consomme?  A consomme is a broth that can be served on its own as a soup, thus - a soup bowl, but you probably knew that already!  Are you also pondering, what is a demitasse?  A demitasse is an expresso cup.  Hot expresso can be mixed with Amaretto Disaronno, or Baily's Irish Cream and poured by the wait staff or a host can set-up an expresso bar table.  Also noteworthy is the fact that a demitasse cup should always be of a different color or a different pattern than the other place setting items.  The demitasse spoon should be different than the other flatware too.  The coffee and tea cup can be used for a regular hot tea and hot coffee service.  When a coffee or a tea cup is placed on a table, the host can install a self-serve coffee or tea bar station, or the wait staff can use a hot coffee or tea trolley to serve as well.
 
What you should remember when deciding what items to place on the table - is to plan your menu first, and if you do not plan to use a specific flatware, dinnerware or drinkware, based upon the menu you selected, do not place that specific flatware, dinnerware or drinkware on the table.  
 
Although clients pay various prices to rent all of their table needs, a set-up fee is also required to cover the labor cost for setting-up and breaking down a ceremony or reception decor.   For place settings requiring two main dishes, one plate will be on the table inside the charger and the extra dinner plate, extra salad/dessert plates, flatware and napkins will be placed on the buffet-line or placed on the specialty table, if a buffet is your choice for the reception meal.  If a client elects to have a caterer provide plated sit-down meals for their guests, the dinnerware will be placed in the kitchen for the catering staff.  Filled salt & pepper shakers cost .50 per table or .40 per place setting, table numbers, menu cards and place cards are placed on the table at a cost of .20 each.  Costs for setting-up and breaking down a place setting for each guests are listed in each menu option below:
