Niagara Wedding Planner and Designer bio picture
  • Hi! I’m Meagan.

    Things that fire me up: sunshine, upbeat music, coffee and lattes, warm summer days, the ocean, bright light, clean lines, flowers and living life.

    I'm a certified wedding planner and destination wedding planner specializing in meaningful, romantic and whimsical weddings with a focus on luxe plans & unique design!

    When I'm not working you can find me reading, relaxing, searching for new adventures, travelling, exercising, and sipping lattes or wine in lovely little cafes.

    I'd be so thrilled if you contacted me to chat about your wedding! You can do that here!

wedding planner private residence

So you want to plan a tented wedding on a private residence? Here’s 3 things to consider before you choose this route:

  1. Is it for sentimental reasons or are you trying to save money? Contrary to popular belief, tented weddings are not a cheaper option. An average tent and basic rentals alone are around $6000. That include the bare minimums, no frills.
  2. Do you feel confident planning a wedding from scratch? It’s likely there’s never been a wedding planned on this property. No venue coordinator to advise how things are usually done. I strongly advise all couples who want to plan a tented wedding to hire a planner. It’s best to hire a planner for full planning when it comes to tented weddings, but at the very least hire someone who can help you pull the last minute details together for a month-of package. Most planners have an up-charge for tented weddings because of the amount of work involved, so trust us, it’s even more work to do this on your own.
  3. Have you considered all of the little extras you will need to bring on site? (Garbages, brooms, fire extinguisher, extention cords, the list goes on.)

With that being said, some of our favourite weddings have been tented weddings on a private residence. There’s something magical about creating a wedding completely from scratch. It’s completely unique to the couple and the possibilities are endless! If you have the space and you’re not just trying to cut costs, we say hire a planner and work together to create the best wedding possible!

    wedding planner nyc - This sounds interesting! In fact, I feel having tented wedding inside the house can be inexpensive rather than the outdoor ones. What about catering area, would that also require tents and do planners take care of this.?ReplyCancel

planning wedding times

  • How many hours is your photography package?
  • How long will you take to get to and from each location you need to be at?
  • How long will your ceremony last?
  • What time is sunset?
  • Where will the sun be during photos?
  • How many family formals do you need to take?

Always remember to consult with your vendors on how much time they will need to complete their service. Knowing this will go a long way in planning your timeline.

Tackling your own wedding planning? Here are 7 small secrets that will help you have a smooth planning process!

  1. You have a planning timeline. You have an idea of when to start looking and booking certain vendors. You don’t book too far ahead or too far behind.
  2. You’re realistic.
  3. You stay organized. Whether you use a binder, and excel sheet or an online software, you keep all of your thoughts and quotes together.
  4. Your expectations are appropriate for your budget.
  5. You know when to hire help. If you feel overwhelmed, lost in certain areas, or just want someone to turn to for advice. You’re willing to outsource for peace of mind.
  6. You see the value of hiring professionals. You know that even though they cost more then hiring your uncle Joe, their experience and knowledge is worth the price.
  7. You know that at the end of the day, the most important part is that you are married, the rest are surface details.
