You will be busier than expected with time at a premium and need someone in charge the day of the wedding to implement your plan and get things done so you can enjoy the big event. Family and Friends should be guests, not staff! For a flat fee of $600, Dan will not only conduct your rehearsal and officiant, but also manage the day of wedding activities, creating a timeline, helping with vendor management and making sure everything goes as smooth as possible. He can suggest associate vendors to fit your budget and get things moving fast and easy for you. This is over 10 hours of work.
With 12 guests or less, a beautiful ceremony can be held at Dan's Cottage in central Lafayette. We can also include a cake & punch reception or afternoon tea party so you can have a small, beautiful wedding for much less than you think. We have almost everything you need and have a photographer and florist who offer special rates when available for small cottage weddings.
