I'm Mallory, a wedding planner based in Charlottesville, Virginia. Traveling throughout Richmond, Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. With a passion for weddings and an eye for details, I help create a personalized and seamless experience for you and your guests.
Our team includes a final wedding venue walk through for every couple no matter the package they choose. Typically set at 30-60 days prior to the wedding date, the final venue walk through will be the last time we are onsite together before the wedding day. So why is this so important? This is the time to ask any final questions and clarify last minute details. No matter if we’ve been to the venue a hundred times, a final walk through gives everyone peace of mind and helps ensure nothing is overlooked for the big day!
This can vary from wedding to wedding, but a final walk through should always include the couple, the planner, caterer and the venue coordinator. Sometimes the florist, rental company, photographer and band/DJ will also need to attend depending on complexity and logistics of the wedding.
At the final walk through we bring copies of the wedding timeline for everyone attending, the order of ceremony, a complete vendor contact sheet, the floor plan(s) and a list of outstanding questions.
We will physically walk through the entire contracted space with you. Pointing out how everything flows from start to finish. If the ceremony and reception are being held in two different venues we always meet at the ceremony venue first then go to the reception venue.
Planning a wedding and dealing with the logistics before your big day can be a stressor. This is why having a wedding planner on your side at a final venue walk through is so important.
