What is the value of our services?
With all the questions involved in planning the biggest celebration of your life, you want to work with a planner that has experience. Our team brings a wealth of knowledge to the process with having planned over 100 weddings here in Cape Breton since 2013.
In addition to that, we pride ourselves on the fact that we have roots here; we grew up here and we're raising our families here.
To state it simply, we listen to your priorities for your wedding and then help make it happen with the right combination of vendors. It is so important to understand how everything is related and how many moving parts there are on the wedding day.
Our team is here to guide you through.
PEACE OF MIND
Over the years we've repeatedly been told by our couples that they feel better knowing they can rely on us to manage the planning process and execution of their day instead of worrying about everything wedding related on their own.
There is no greater gift that you can give yourself than hiring a J. Marie Weddings coordinator to oversee your wedding day so that you can be fully present in every moment as it happens.
Full Wedding Planning & Design
Our most popular package, the Full Wedding Planning package includes the involvement of J. Marie Weddings from conception to execution. This 12-18-month package provides you with the support of an experienced, professional wedding planner to help you navigate the 200+ decisions you’ll make as you plan your wedding; saving you time and making the overall experience much more enjoyable.
Our approach to wedding planning allows you to complete tasks with a sure mind and full heart, ensuring that we’re creating a wedding day that reflects you as a couple, your style and stays within your budget. The planning process is easy to follow, with monthly check-ins and pre-established deadlines.
This package also includes onsite, day-of coordination as well as the addition of a J. Marie Weddings assistant. This ensures that the entire day goes according to plan and that you, the couple, are completely present in every moment as it happens.
Our wedding management package provides you with our services three months before the wedding and on the day of the occasion.
This package is perfect for couples who have already made all the big decisions and only need support with finalizing the smaller details and bringing everything together for the big day. As part of this package, we’ll review all your current wedding plans and offer suggestions on how to improve each portion of the day, from getting ready in the morning to the reception, and everything in between. Your J. Marie Weddings coordinator will also create and oversee your personalized wedding day timeline to ensure your wedding day is executed flawlessly.
