DIY Plans

Are you a Do It Yourself Bride?

There are lots of reasons for choosing to be a DIY Bride.

Some simply love to plan and create – plus want complete control of their wedding day, including the décor and much more.

Others, while desiring to make this day very special, simply want to save some dollars because they have other priorities for their money.

Either way, we would love to help you.

You may simply rent the beautiful venue and virtually do everything yourself!*


Our Simple Elegance basics only may be a perfect option for you! Our onsite coordinator is available within or separate from the package, and is here to help you in whatever capacity you like – letting you be in charge to plan and design your day – all of the fun parts – but available for advice should you want it. We do believe no wedding should be attempted without a great Coordinator!  She will help you with your timeline and table arrangement as you need. Then when it comes to the actual day, we believe you (and your mom, etc.) should be able to relax and enjoy the day, and let us do all of the work for you!

What I appreciate most is there was so much structure and it went so smoothly and I just want to thank Tricia for everything. We had a very good time and we definitely will be using them again in the future. Diana, Google… a DIY Bride

Not only is a good “day-of” coordinator is worth her weight in gold, you also have a closet full of décor items from which to choose, ivory linens, and your dinnerware onsite is simply invaluable. Of course, you can add your own creative elements making it all uniquely yours! Then while we do the work part of setting up and orchestrating for the day – according to your plan, you enjoy relaxing and getting ready with your friends in our gorgeous bridal suite.

Simple Elegance basics

Just $39 pp, with a $2100 minimum (plus Venue Rental and Alcohol, if desired)


My experience with this venue was nothing but perfect! I loved my experience from the day I first toured the venue to when I left it on my wedding day. Tricia and Leslie were great at answering all my questions promptly and really worked with my ideas for my wedding. They were so cooperative and all of my guests commented on how beautiful the venue was. Johanna, Google.. a DIY Bride
