Putting the P(s) in Planner

Putting the P(s) in Planner
_______________________________________________________________________________

We have a new approach to wedding planning, and it involves 3 P's: Platform, Process, and Packages. 



Let's Bake A Cake (and by Cake, we mean Wedding)
_________________________________________________________


In a previous blog post, we talked about how our business name is an analogy (Olive is to Belle as Bride is to Beauty). Well, since we love analogies so much let's compare the 3 P's to Baking a Cake:

Platform = Ingredients

Process = Recipe or Cooking Directions

Packages = The Cake






Platform
_________________________________________________________

Every cake needs sugar, eggs, and flour to taste good, then you add the icing to make it looks as pretty as it tastes. Our Wedding Planning Platform identifies the 10 key ingredients of wedding planning. Our Platform starts with the fundamental first layer of ingredients needed for a smooth and seamless wedding day, and layers-up to the finishing touches that bring your vision and design to life. These 10 ingredients make-up our 3 Wedding Planning Packages.

The Platform starts with the fundamental first layer of ingredients needed for a smooth and seamless wedding day. These are the logistical ingredients that are Essential for month-of coordination. The middle layers save you time and headache by handing-off the vendor planning and budget management to an expert. And finally, the icing on the cake, get all the finishing touches with styling and design to bring your vision and design to life.

Our Platform approach makes it easy to upgrade wedding planning packages at any point in the planning process.




Process
_____________________________________________________

After you have the ingredients, it's as easy as following the recipe to get the beautiful wedding you dreamed of. Our Wedding Roadmap acts as the recipe, or the tactical Process, we follow to plan your wedding and get you to the altar on your wedding day.




Packages
_________________________________________________________

Finally, when you have the ingredients and you know the recipe, all you have to do is bake the cake. The time it takes to bake the cake varies based on the ingredients and recipe you follow, so decide how much time you want to spend in the heat of wedding planning then choose from one of our 3 Wedding Planning Packages which are made up of these 10 Platform ingredients, and the Roadmap.
