Falling in love is a lot like a light shower of rain. At first, there are clouds, the signs that something is brewing in the distance. The wind picks up, the pressure changes, and suddenly you begin to feel a drop every now and then. One drop falls and hits your cheek, a sweet subtle moment, then those droplets begin to scatter around you and soon you find that they have marked you from head to toe, and you’re ready to be drenched in the feeling.

We’re sure you still remember the first time it really occurred to you that you had fallen in love with the person you are now going to marry. It’s a life-altering, self-altering thing, that can start so subtly and then truly transform you. Our Light Showers package is not only an homage to that feeling, but it also gives you everything you need to prepare for your wedding, without asking you to get drenched in all of the responsibility that comes with this huge task.

We like to think of this package as the one that provides you with the most essential of planning help, while also allowing you to direct the planning process as you please. This wedding planning packing is best for a bride who wants to do most of the work herself, but who also knows that there is much value in having a professional wedding planner as an ally.

Light Showers Planning Package

The Light Showers Package comes with four client/planner meetings, five vendor meetings and assistance with event design and theme and much more. This wedding planning package was designed to offer direction for a bride who has a concept and more, but who also only has limited knowledge on how she can accomplish this vision. Petrichor works with the best vendors in Northern Colorado, freeing up time for you to enjoy your engagement; time you would otherwise be doing research, making phone calls, and other wedding-related tasks.

There are numerous wedding-related tasks this wedding planning package can help you to execute perfectly, including:

While you may be sure of what sort of wedding you want, and how to prepare, there is no use being both the wedding planner and the bride on your big day.
