Creative Consultation with LaFete Events

The other week I introduced you to Katie Dunn and LaFete Events, a full-service event coordination team based in North Carolina.  Katie and LaFete offer a tiered system of services that cater your your needs whether you need a part-time consultant or full-time coordinator.


With the amount of resources available at your fingertips, it's completely understandable why you may not need a full-time coordinator.  If this is the route you choose, a Creative Consultation is the way to go.  Katie and her team work with you on an hourly basis to help you with (but not limited to) the following:

  • Venue search
  • Budget development and cost-savings solutions
  • Vendor selection and referral
  • Personalized decor and design 
  • Rental item selection and coordination
  • Timeline development and action lists
  • General wedding planning tips and advice
  • Pre/post wedding events
One of the things I really enjoyed learning about Katie when I met her was the amount of time she takes to get to know her clients and what they need from her.  This helps communicate the process of setting expectations between you (the planner) and your coordinator.  A Creative Consultation also allows for greater flexibility in the planning process:

  • Budget.  You only pay for the services that you need. 
  • Time Management.  You take care of the items on your punch list and your coordinator picks up the rest. 
  • Resources.  A Creative Consultation gives you access to an abundant amount of resources that Katie and LaFete are happy to share with you. Through them you are able to research and manage the process for obtaining your vendors through trusted referrals and advice from the experts!
Until next Thursday!
