IT'S YOUR DAY
AND YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT A THING
Our planning services vary depending on the needs of each couple, so we love to offer all couples interested in booking with Crimson Edge, a complimentary discovery call in order to create a fully customized proposal.
During the consultation, we will go through every aspect of your wedding. Then, after an onsite walk-through, we create a design proposal, which includes visual inspiration as well as colour boards and layouts of the ceremony, pre-drinks and reception areas.
We create secret boards on Pinterest so that together we can share ideas and inspiration and hand select and manage your complete design team including the florist, rentals, hiring, linens, invitation and on the day stationery, lighting and other design-related suppliers
We are excited to hear from you and the vision of your big day! Fill out the inquiry form and include as much information as possible. The more information we have the better we will know if we can accommodate your needs.
2. LET'S CHAT
After we’ve received your inquiry, we will read over all the details to see if your event looks like a fit for 20 West. If your date is available and it looks like a match, we would love to chat with your on the phone about your event.
3. LET'S START PLANNING
Once you have booked with us, its time to make your dreams a reality! It will be time for you to relax in confidence and enjoy the FUN part of the process!
WE ARE EXPERTS AT MAKING YOUR RANDS WORK HARDER AND PRECIOUS SECONDS COUNT, MAXIMISING YOUR INVESTMENT
We always keep our main focus on advocating for your individual style by adding surprising & thoughtful moments. With meticulous attention to detail and calculated timelines, we create the build blocks of wedding planning that are consistently praised by other creative partners and venues.

WEDDING DAY MANAGEMENT
(FKA Day of Coordination)
(6) Consultation meetings
(1) Final detail meeting to be scheduled 4-6 weeks prior to create itinerary and timeline
(1) Hour rehearsal coordination for the ceremony and collecting wedding items at that time
Our Wedding Management/Day of Coordination is more like twelve weeks of coordination with a little bit of planning thrown in because we are thorough and awesome like that. We not only coordinate the heck out of your event - we help you hit the ground running and provide you with all the resources and advice you need to plan a kickass wedding at the start of the planning process.
Pre-Wedding Day, we provide you with an amazing set of tools that we've created and improved upon over the years (suggested vendor guides, to-do lists, worksheets, etc.). Also, unlike many coordinators, we offer our couples unlimited email communication from the time of booking to the wedding. If you've got an etiquette or timeline question that can't wait until right before the wedding, no worries - just ask us! Also included in the pre-wedding portion is a walk-through, timeline creation, month-of vendor management, floor plan and rental order review, etc.
When your wedding day arrives, we're there to make it fantastic by overseeing setup, managing vendors, coordinating transportation, maintaining the timeline, managing ceremony music and processional, handling emergency situations, packing up personal items, etc. etc. etc. Basically, we spend approx. 10 hours owning your wedding & slaying any issues. Oh, and you also get access to our ridiculously stocked emergency kit (it's pretty much zombiepocalypse calibre).

FULL SERVICE PLANNING
(12) Consultation meetings spread out throughout the planning process to discuss venue, vendors, budget, design, etiquette, ceremony and reception details
(1) Menu tasting and Table Mock
Assistance tracking vendor deposits, payments and due dates
Basically, you find the love of your life, agree to get married and then we swoop in and make it awesome. We handle everything from logistical items (venue scouting, budget creation/management, timelines and schedules, vendor research and suggestions, contract review and negotiations, out-of-town guest arrangements, rehearsal coordination, ceremony planning, floor plan creation, vendor communication management, etc.) to aesthetic items (colour palette and décor guidance, design curation, floral and menu selections, invitation guidance and selection, music choices, etc.).
We work tirelessly to bring all of these elements together throughout the planning time. Full planning culminates in day-of coordination where we ensure that all of the hard work that went into planning is executed smoothly and seamlessly. Our full planning clients also receive a personalized, secure login to our online project management software – it’s a handy dandy space where we store and share documents – we also use it to set up a to-do list and email reminders. It’s pretty fancy stuff.
None of the above? No worries - we offer several consulting packages too!
For couples planning on their own who need a little guidance and support here and there, we offer hourly consultations. These consultations are tailored to your specific needs and are available for a wide range of projects associated with the planning process such as – venue hunting, vendor referrals, budgeting help, timeline creation, transportation logistics, contract reviews, hotel block arrangements, etc. These consultations can be done in person or via phone. Our expert assistance costs R250/hour, with a 3-hour minimum which can be split into multiple sessions. (AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE)

We totally get it that having a Day of Coordinator isn't in everyone's budget. Perhaps you have a wonderful friend/cousin/co-worker who volunteered to stage manage for you. That's awesome! But here's the thing - there's a LOT of work that goes into making a wedding run smoothly. The timeline, the prep work, the pep talks! Enter - our DIY Package which includes a one-hour consultation, vendor contract review, timeline creation, worksheets/checklists, floor plan and rental review, an emergency kit packing list, and a meeting/call/skype session with your coordinator to prep her/him to be a flawless DOC.
