Introducing Executive Planning: Bespoke Weddings for Busy Couples

Like many metropolitan areas, Washington, DC is a hub for busy professionals who probably spend more time commuting or at work than they do at home. They strive to balance their jobs, working out, personal relationships, keeping a clean home, getting enough sleep, and the list goes on (and on). Throw an engagement into the mix, and now they are faced with the task of planing a wedding, as well.

Naturally, this is where Wedding Planners and Designers come in. We are here to help take much of the burden off our couples, to be the main organizer and communicator with vendors and the like. However, even working with a planner can still involve a lot of back and forth communication, collaboration, and time – something that so many of our couples are short on.

In an effort to better serve our current and future clients, we at CDWE started to brainstorm ways that we could still offer our signature planning and design services, but in a more streamlined and time-conscious way. We were thinking of the couple who is constantly on the go, who may need to travel often for work, and who may not have the resources to meet or chat on a regular basis throughout the length of their engagement.

And thus, our Executive Planning service was born!

Our Executive couples still retain full input on the overall experience of their day, but in a much more condensed and time-conscious manner. We provide specific selections and recommendations with a detailed planning timeline, so each couple knows exactly what to expect and when.

In short, this package is perfect for time-pressed couples who wish to be more hands-off in their wedding planning, who fully trust our expert team, and who are willing to let themselves be guided in order to create their perfect wedding.

Our new Executive Planning service is also offered as one flat fee, in comparison with our Full Planning service that consists of a blended structure, including a percentage of any production costs. This means that regardless of your budget or amount of design elements, your fee will remain the same.
