Events by Emily Holiday Offering: Engagement Planning Sessions

It's that time of year again: the upcoming holidays mean engagement season!

And just like last year, I’m offering early engagement planning sessions.

What better time to get engaged than around the holidays, when you're feeling fuzzy, full of food and overloaded with family time? To celebrate this exciting time of year, I'm offering an extra holiday special:

wedding planning sessions for

engaged couples.

If you’re not recently engaged, engagement sessions also make a fabulous gift for

a sibling, friend or loved one.


Holiday Engagement Planning Session: $200.00

Let's get your party started with a little help from Events by Emily!

you might ask: Why an early Engagement Planning Session?


At first, newly engaged couples feel a burst of incredible excitement for their wedding. Following these feelings of joy, however, people often experience an intense wave of...

OMG our wedding:

what do we do next!

Sometimes this leads to years (I've seen it, years) of putting off the actual wedding, or a manic period of stress and anxiety. My goal with engagement sessions is to step in and prevent existential wedding stress from the beginning.

I want to help you avoid procrastination and panic!

For $200.00 a session, I can organize and focus your wedding's design and concept. I can tell you what is and isn't possible with your budget, will help you create a planning timeline, and will help you parse out all the vendors you'll need to get hired and by when.


Gather your ideas before you get started on your wedding journey!

If you enjoy our time together, we can explore further planning package options, but there is no financial or personal commitment to Events by emily beyond the holiday gift package engagement session.

This offer is available from November 15th, 2018 thru January 1st, 2019, and it can be redeemed thru June 30th of 2019.
