Planning your wedding can seem like a daunting task, there’s a lot to manage, and that’s before you take into consideration how to plan your special day on another continent!

But that’s exactly what we are here for! We have put together a “Wedding Planning Schedule” which will guide you through the stages of your Planning Process with Team Conifer.

 

1.      Getting To Know Us

As Wedding Planners, we understand that you are entrusting us to help you plan one of the most important and exciting days of your lives. Therefore, before you commit to working with us, we like to have a Zoom call with you. This gives us all a chance to get to know one another a little. You can learn about us, who we are and what we can help you with. We can learn about you, your ideas, your style, your expectations, and requirements. Click to Meet the team.

 

2.      Aisle Planner

Once you have decided to work with us, we set you up with your personal Aisle Planner account. This is an online platform which enables us to incorporate all of our, and your, ideas to begin the planning process. It features a Design Studio where we can create a virtual mood board and upload pictures to go with your desired theme and colour palette. It also features a budget and timeline management tool, as well as a carefully selected supplier list.

 

 

3.      Venue Selection

Here at Conifer, we work with a range of venues, from exclusive use manors to traditional Scottish castles, to glamorous city centre hotels. So, whether you want that spectacular fairy-tale Scottish Castle up in the Highlands, or a chic Edinburgh city centre venue we have you covered. Check out some of the amazing venues we work with by clicking here.

 

 

4.      Budget & Timeline Management

We understand that a huge part of your planning is dealing with your budget and timeline management. Team Conifer will work with you and your budget closely and ensure that we get the most out of it, allocating it to the areas you feel are most important to you. Timeline management can also be a daunting part of your wedding planning. When do you book certain suppliers? Will this supplier have the necessary availability on this date? When do you need to make your final payment? When does this contract need to be signed? Well don’t worry, we are here to guide you through the process from start to finish! We will set up an online Timeline Management tool for you via Aisle Planner and input all of your milestones.

 

5.      Supplier Selection & Management

By now you’re well on your way to planning you’re dream day… Perfect date, perfect venue. Now it’s time to book the best suppliers to help bring your day together. Here at Conifer, we work with a range of quality assured suppliers and can give you a list of recommendations based on your preferences and budget. On your personal Aisle Planner account, we will list some of our recommended suppliers, which you can then go and check out via their website and socials… and if you feel like you want to know more, we’ll even set up an introductory Zoom call between you both. For example, if you like the look of one of our photographers but have some questions before securing them we’d be more than happy to introduce you.

 

 

6.      Visas & Marriage Licence

And now for the boring bit with all the paperwork! As you can imagine getting married overseas means that there some legal requirements that need to be met. Now, this may seem like a daunting task, however, we’re here to help guide you through it all. Check out our Blog “Scotland – A Destination Wedding” which tells you a little bit more about the process.

 

7.      Those all-important extras!

Here’s something you may not have known about us…. We not only help you with your Destination Wedding Planning, but we can also assist with all those pre and post Wedding activities you want to enjoy whilst you’re over here. From organising Bachelor and Bachelorette parties to private whisky tastings and mini highland games, we’ve got you covered!

 

 

8.      On the Day Management

So… your big day has finally arrived! Team Conifer is on hand making sure that everything is running seamlessly. The venue is prepared perfectly, your suppliers are all ready to go, all you need to worry about is turning up! We will be there to ensure that everything, down to the smallest of details is taken care of and we deliver your perfect day.
