Were here to assist you in realizing your vision as well as keep you in your budget. Many times the vision of the wedding day are different between finance’s. Be willing to compromise so both you and your finance’s styles and flair are apparent in the wedding ceremony, reception, &/or after party. Sometimes this can be accomplished by having a different vision realized in different areas of the day. Such as perhaps your fiancé would like the ceremony to reminiscent of Italy, and you are envisioning a winter wonderland concept. We can have the décor and lighting in the ceremony romantic in colors and plants that remind you of Italy, while the cocktail hour between the ceremony and reception can be glittering white trees and white & blue lights opening up to the reception that is Italy in winter. Both sides happy. Or perhaps you’re both dreaming of a out door mountain top wedding at sunset but have several guests that will be in wheelchairs and the actual mountain top is just not feasible so all of your guests can attend. We can recreate with décor and lighting in a city venue the outdoor mountain top at sunset and all of your guests can attend.

A common misconception of new couples is that you can pull your dress from a rack and take it home with you that day. This is not true. (1) nothing fits any of us perfectly just pulled off a rack & (2) most boutiques and bridal shops have sample dresses for you to try on and see which dress looks the best & is your vision for you on your wedding day or the event of the year that you want to create. When you head to the salon to pick your gorgeous wedding dress you need to be sure to purchase your dress 6-8 months in advance to allow time for it to be made, and alternations. It takes time to make the dress in the closest size that you are and then make alternations so you're your best on your wedding day. If you’re heading to the salon to pick the dress for the event of the year, you need 6 weeks for the dress to be made. Then you need another 3-4 weeks for alternations. When planning the event of the year or your wedding there is To Do list that you need to consider. 1. What time of year you want to have your event or wedding;
2. What day of the week you would prefer to have your big party;
3. Your total budget; i.e. it doesn’t make sense to pick the venue first if you have a tight budget and the venue ends up costing a majority of your budget. Then your food, liquor, clothes, and ambiance will suffer. Also remember that most people, unless you are a professional are not planning events & weddings on a regular basis and that the costs of the items that you see on T.V. and in the magazines are probably far more expensive then you initially realize. Hiring a professional, such as Jennifer Lane Events & Wedding in Denver to assist you with your plans, and coordinating will give you discounts in buying and negotiating power that will ultimately save you allot of time, money, sanity and frustration.
