Booked within the first month after signing a contract, the first RX session is mainly for us to get to know each other and for The Union Studio to gather all pertinent information about what you've done already, haven't done, and what you want to do. We look at vendors that have been hired, do a thorough review of their contracts and also make recommendations for vendors that you still need. This is also a time to review Pinterest boards, color palettes, likes and dislikes and wishes and dreams. We will collect, discuss and review in detail the planning items that have already taken place and then develop the "RX" or plan on how to move forward with the planning process. Any red flags will be identified, priorities set, and a course of action set into motion!
Aisle Planner is the essential tool we use to coordinate your wedding and keep all your details organized. Within Aisle Planner we communicate, design your timeline, build your event design, maintain your floorplan and seating assignments and keep track of your vendors, their contracts and payment details.
With the first draft designed as soon as possible after our Client-Coordinator relationship begins and constantly updated throughout the planning process, The Union Studio designs the entire “master timeline” for your wedding weekend. Beginning with items such as “hotel check-in” on Thursday all the way through your post nuptial brunch on Sunday. As your planning team, The Union Studio will circulate and confirm your final timeline with all vendors and VIP’s.
Housed within Aisle Planner, your floorplan will be designed by The Union Studio, editable by you and best news ever – Your Guest List and seating assignments can be handled within this feature. Gone are the days of post-it’s on poster board!
This walkthrough can be scheduled any time after contract signing based on The Union Studio and Client's mutual availability. We allow for 2 hours in the schedule. The purpose of this walk through is to orientate our team with the event venue and its representatives and brainstorm design and placement.
Even though we've been in communication during the "in between" months, this RX session is to cross all t's and dot all i's. After this session, the final timeline and floor plan will be complete and ready for circulation. Any final red flags will be marked and a plan put in place to remedy. You should leave this meeting feeling set and ready to hand this event over to The Union Studio.
