THE PERFECT KEY TO YOUR WEDDING DAY

After more than six years in business and over 100 weddings, we feel that we’ve come to understand what couples need and want when it comes to their special day. Today’s couples are pretty savvy when it comes to doing a lot of planning on their own, but want to be in touch with a professional who knows the business and can help offer advice and direction when needed. They also know that when it comes to the day itself, couples do not want themselves or their families “working” their wedding. Keyed Up Events can be the Perfect Key to ensuring a wonderful day for everyone!

$1795 | Two Coordinators | 12 Hours

What’s Included:

  • Unlimited Communication during the planning process - feel free to contact us with questions or concerns, whatever we can do to make your wedding planning a better experience for you!

  • Help pull together your ideas or themes to make your vision come to life, have it be a personalized day, and ensure a great guest experience.

  • Referrals to any vendors that are needed, including being able to take advantage of any deals or offers available to our client.

  • Use of any ancillary decor items such as easels, cake stands, miscellaneous vases, baskets, candles, drink dispensers, drink tubs, etc.  

  • Creation of timeline - online platform to help plan the day and logistics.

  • Up to three in-person meetings to be used for planning, venue walk-throughs, and final details.

  • Vendor communication during the final 30 days before the wedding and timeline distribution to vendors.

  • Attendance by one of your Coordinators at the rehearsal to coordinate in conjunction or in place of your officiant, and handouts for family and wedding party with timelines, addresses and things they need to know.

  • Up to 12 hours of Coordination on the day of the wedding to manage:

    • The timeline - making sure we are hitting all the points you want and being the one to determine what is coming next and to make the call if something needs to change.

    • The people - answer the million questions everyone has so they do not bother the couple with them. This includes vendors, family, wedding party and guests.

    • The “stuff” - setting up things like the gift table, memorial table, dessert station, escort cards, miscellaneous decor, favors, menu cards and some centerpiece items.

What Is Not Included:

  • Travel and hotel fees for venues outside of the 612 / 651 / 952 / 763 area codes.

  • Busing, trash, and general maintenance/cleaning of venue.

  • Making or creating floral displays/arrangements for centerpieces or other decor.

  • Our Candy Bar service, which is just $1.00 a person! We bring the candy, scoops, cups, bags and containers. We set it all up, clean it up, and let the couple keep any extra of their favorite candy!

WE KNOW YOU HAVE QUESTIONS!

 

  • When you say unlimited communication, what does that mean? Just like it sounds. Feel free to contact us anytime during the planning process with questions or concerns. We will get back to you in a timely manner.

  • What sort of deals or offers can we get from other vendors through you? It depends on who it is and what they offer. Sometimes it is a dollar or percentage off a package; sometimes it’s a free add on; or it could be something else. Whatever it is, we are happy to pass the savings on to our clients.

  • How does the decor usage work? We don’t have enough to outfit your whole wedding, but during the course of the planning process, if it seems like you need a...whatever, and we have one that can work, we’ll bring it! Usually it’s more ancillary decor items like extra cake stands, something to use for a card box, extra vases or candles, easels, etc.

  • How do you create the timeline? At about the 90 day mark, we create a timeline in our online platform where we put all of your vendor information, as well as other details. We can then both continue to update the timeline as we go along so by the time the wedding has arrived, everyone is on the same page about what will be happening and when.

  • Who is the main contact for other vendors? During the planning process, you are the main contact for the vendors. You can feel free to copy us on correspondence you think we should know about, or forward us information then send you to keep us in the loop, and then we will respond or ask questions as needed. Starting between 90-30 days out, we will get more involved with them.

  • How does rehearsal work? One of your coordinators will come to your rehearsal, if you are having one on a different day (if out of town, extra travel fees may apply), and if you would like us there. We will work with your officiant to ensure everything will run smoothly, introduce ourselves to the family and wedding party so they know who to come to with questions, and pass out a sheet to them with times and places they need to know for the wedding day.

  • What are your travel and hotel fees? If your wedding is outside of the 612 / 651 / 763 / 952 area codes and/or over 60 miles from the 55405 zip code, there will be a $100 travel fee, and a room rented at an agreed upon motel/hotel within 15 minutes of the venue, or a stipend for the market rate of a hotel in the area, for each night needed.

  • Will you put greenery out on tables or displays? Yes, we can place simple greenery or garlands and move them as needed, as long as we are given time to do so. What we cannot do is create centerpiece displays, with either real or fake flowers, on the day of the wedding. We are happy to put out whatever your florist has created, or your DIY pieces that are already put together! 

  • Will you keep things running, cue the wedding party for the ceremony, tell us when to sit for dinner, cut the cake, start toasts and do our dance? Yes, along with your photographer, we will basically tell you where to go and what to do all day until after your dancing starts. If changes need to be made to the timeline due to any number of circumstances, we will be the ones to make that call.

  • What do you do about clean up? Once the dance starts or dinner is over, we will begin packing up your decor as much as we can while we are there or until the end of the night. We will also work with a friend of family member to ensure gifts are moved to a safe location. It is our goal to get you packed up as much as possible so there’s nothing left to do at the end of the night but grab your new spouse and leave!

  • Does the caterer bus the tables and do the trash? For many of the venues, yes they do. But if your caterer doesn’t stay all night, or isn’t the in house caterer, or you are at a venue where you can bring your own alcohol, then maybe not. You need to ask the venues and the caterer and the bar service what they do and don’t do. Your Coordinators are not responsible for clearing up plates, napkins, utensils or drinkware from appetizers, dinner, dessert or the bar, changing the trash, or sweeping or mopping up after the event.*

*There is an option for us to bring Additional Staff to handle busing, clearing, trash and other tasks as needed. Additional Staff is $25/hour per Staff, for a minimum of six hours for each. One additional staff member is needed for every 100 guests if plates/napkins/utensils/drinkware is disposable; every 75 guests if they are not. Additional staff is recommended when the main caterer does not stay all evening, the bar service does not clean up drinkware from all around the venue, main caterer does not handle serving and cleanup of dessert, and there is a good amount of decor that must be taken down and removed by the end of the night. Final determination on attendance of Additional Staff to be made 90 days out from event. Final determination on number of hours for Additional Staff to be made at final call/meeting, approximately 30 days out from the event. PLEASE NOTE: If Additional staff is not contracted then Client must have alternative plans for busing tables and cleaning up items from food and beverage. Coordinators are only responsible for cleanup of Client items (personal items, decor, gifts).
