Wedding Planner Scottsdale - Planning Process

The Planning Process

Planning a special event can seem overwhelming at first. With so many important decisions to make, it’s hard to know exactly where to begin. Our philosophy? Take it one step at a time. In an attempt to demystify the event planning process, we’ve broken things down for you below. No matter what stage you’re in, we’ll work with you to turn your vision into a reality.

Step One

Inspiration Gathering

Want to know the best way to gather inspiration for your wedding or special event? Check out the fabulous things other luxe people have done on our blog and our gallery. Also, consider this your official invitation to say hi on Facebook and Instagram.

Step Two

Say Hi

If you like what you see, send us an email. We’ll keep it simple for you! Tell us your name, event date, and a few details, and we’ll let you know how we can help.

Step Three

Complimentary Consultation

That’s right, we said FREE consultation! We’re excited to meet you and can’t wait to get started planning your event, so as soon as you reach out, we’ll schedule a complimentary consultation. This is the moment where we get to walk through your vision, get to know you, and discuss how we can be part of your big day.

Step Four


We know you’ve already scored THE proposal, but now it’s time for us to propose to you too. Lucky you! After our initial consultation, we’ll take a few days to put together a custom proposal specifically for you and your event. We want everything to be absolutely perfect, so take some time to review it. We promise to be patient.

Step Five

Sign, Sealed, Delivered

We’re yours! Should you accept our proposal, we will send you a contract to secure your date. Now do a celebration dance and pour yourself a cocktail because the fun part is about to begin.

Step Six

The Fun Part

Think of this as the movie montage sequence where all the wedding and special event planning comes together. This is the part where you flip through magazines, scroll Pinterest, put on an upbeat song, and have a glass of wine. You’re planning, baby! And the best part? We’ll be here to help you every step of the way.

Step Seven

The Big Day

Time flies when you’re having fun! After months of planning, it’s finally event day and the 44th & Luxe team is all yours. From communicating with vendors to making sure all the details are in place, we’ll be behind the scenes making sure everything goes according to plan.
