The Day Of Bride--Package Details

The Day Of Planning Package is really better described as month of service. Our brides who utilize this service are handling all aspects of the planning process on their own but recognize the value of having a third party coordinate all the details those last few weeks leading up to the wedding day.

With the Day Of Bride we begin around thirty days out from the wedding. At this point we will set up a call or meeting to discuss all the details of the day. We get the vendor information and begin to contact them to come up with a master timeline for how the day will flow. We will meet with the bride for a final walk through of the venue space to learn the layout and where you envision seeing everything from the food and cake to the welcome book and favors. Day Of Brides often have welcome gifts for their out of town guests, and we will even take care of delivering these to hotels for you.

When it comes to the wedding weekend we are your right hand gals. We're there to coordinate and run your ceremony rehearsal, set up all of your personal items and break down the wedding itself. We are there on site for up to ten hours on the wedding day. We are there to ensure every vendor is on time and performs the tasks you hired them to do. We stay through to the end of your reception and make sure all of your personal items and gifts are packed away leaving you and your family to enjoy the festivities.

Please let us know if The Day Of Planning Package meets your needs. We would love to get started with you today!

It's been just under five years since I, Jenna Laine Rachal, started this little business and I am thrilled to see how its grown and excited to reach 100 weddings along side these fabulous ladies pictured above.

My very first wedding in Fairhope, Alabama was in November of 2012. I had just moved home from New York City a few months earlier with hopes of a creating a successful wedding planning business and was very nervous and excited to be helping Elisabeth and William Hays with their special day. The weekend couldn't have gone better and I thank both Elisabeth and William for placing so much trust in me.

 Here's a sweet shot from Posh Images of Mr. and Mrs. Hays, who have since then added a precious little girl to their family.

Since the Hayes wedding, four and a half years ago, we have added new members to our team, began selling custom stationery in the store, and also offer retail items, such as custom jewelry dishes, champagne flutes, custom guest books, garters, stationery sets, and more.

We celebrated our 100th wedding on February 25th, with the marriage of my dear friend Meg Perkins and Brian Wittendorfer. We actually pulled triple duty at this wedding. We were planners, bridesmaids and mine and Alexs daughters were flower girls. It was one of our most exciting weddings and probably the most stressful. Getting two two year olds down the aisle is no easy task, but it all went off without a hitch and it was fun having our entire team at the wedding to celebrate this milestone.

Here's an image from Meg and Brian's special day;

It has been a joy to work with so many brides, grooms and their families over the past four and half years. We have developed many friendships with our brides and with our vendors and we thank both for all the trust they put in Jenna Laine Weddings. I also owe a BIG thank you to my family for their support and letting me work so many long and late hours and most weekends. And to my amazing team, y'all are the best group of creative, kind and smart women and without you Jenna Laine Weddings would not be where it is today! We are looking forward to a busy 2017 and many more milestones ahead! Thank you for your continued support!

Thank you for a Great Spring & Summer

Before we launch into our fall and winter wedding season we wanted to take a second to say thank you to all of our wonderful brides and grooms from this past spring and summer 2016 season. We were busier than ever, with over thirty weddings all over Gulf Coast and enjoyed each and every one. We feel so blessed to be able to do this job and we have met so many wonderful people along the way. We take such pride and joy in witnessing two people as they exchange vows and make such a special commitment to one another. We wish all of our couples a long and happy life together as husband and wife.

Thank you for trusting us with one of the most special days of your lives. We hope we were able to create your dream weddings and many cherished memories. - Jenna ,Courtney, Alex
