Happy 3rd week of our vendor spotlight series. This week we spoke with Wedding Planner and Stylist, Amy Boardwine of I Do Events. We’ve worked with Amy on several weddings and shoots and she’s one of our favorite people to team up with.
Amy began planning elaborate birthday parties for her daughter over 20 years ago and her planning naturally evolved into a business. (We love that entrepreneurial spirit!) I Do Events, specializes in, “custom event design, inspired by your vision. Additionally, we offer complete planning from start to finish, to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks; no detail is too small!”
What are your must-have items in your kit on a wedding day?
What’s your favorite item in your kit?
Good fabric scissors.
Is there anything you carry with you that you’ve never needed but you can’t take out of your bag?
Can’t think of anything I haven’t used.
Do you have any funny stories to share about how you’ve used what you had in your kit to McGuyver your way out of an emergency on a wedding day?
I used glass cleaner to kill ants headed for a cake. We’ve also had to use every piece of wood we could find to shim a terribly unstable ceremony arch.
How long does it take you to prep and pack for a wedding?
That’s a loaded question! When we work a complete package (full planning, coordinating, decor) which is most of our weddings, it takes a complete week to design, inventory, prepare, pack, assemble, load vehicles, and double check. Loading vehicles alone takes at least 2 hours. If doing a coordinating-only wedding, final prep takes a full day. Both of these are final prep, not the hours of earlier planning that went into each event.
