Partial Planning Services (Bespoke Collections)
Maybe you have had the decor planned out for months, down to the floral centerpieces and vintage serving platters for the buffet table. But how will those elements fit into your budget alongside the venue and rental expenses?
What if you’ve invested so much time in planning the wedding day that organizing the guest accommodations and rehearsal dinner have fallen right off your to-do list?
Planning a wedding means making dozens of decisions and staying on top of even more tasks. Before you’re totally overwhelmed, let our team step in with partial planning services. Simply pick the services you need, and don’t pay more for those tasks that you have under control. Our Bespoke Collections are personalized to fit your unique circumstances and planning preferences.
In addition to our month of coordination services, we can help simplify the design process, ensure your traveling guests are greeted with a custom gift bag, create a professional wedding website, or manage all of those tricky rentals.

special event design
Designing your wedding is about so much more than choosing a color scheme and floral arrangements. Every element, from floor planning to lighting design to handmade installations should be a delightful expression of you. It’s an opportunity to share your story as a couple with the people you love most, and create memories that you and your guests will relive for years to come.
At Kate Whelan Events, we live and breathe design. The ability to make our client’s vision or design aesthetic a reality truly sets our team apart. Whether you already have your once-in-a-lifetime setting planned out, or need help turning a collection of inspiring ideas into a cohesive design that is true to you, we are here to ensure that it unfolds seamlessly.
Regardless of your desired location or venue, our goal is to make the design process smooth and uninterrupted. We specialize in private estate event planning with particular logistics and welcome opportunities to transform a space entirely to fit harmoniously with your distinct concept.
