The types of events handled by our company vary greatly. However, the result is the same for the client…a great event or function.

A Thorough Fare recognizes each client has his own special goals and requirements for their event. Initially, we spend time with our client determining their goals and objectives.

Two event planning packages are available:


“From This Day Forward” is a full service plan for the busy couple looking to have the wedding of their dreams without the time to pull it all together. Since the average wedding takes 250-300 hours to plan, A Thorough Fare can do all this for you: provide special advice, site and vendor research and recommendations, contract negotiation, even honeymoon planning. Of course you will get onsite coordination of your wedding day. We will be there from the minute you set the date until the moment your last guest leaves. At our first meeting we will take the time to get to know you, your partner, and your vision for your wedding day. If you are not sure about your vision we will help you define it and offer suggestions on how to bring it to life. Then we will handle every little detail to make sure your wedding day is flawless. In the meantime, you can relax and enjoy your engagement and the pre-wedding excitment…knowing that all the planning details are under control. With our guidance and impeccable implementation, you’ll see how planning your wedding can be as enjoyable as the big day itself. And with this plan you can now be a guest at your own wedding.


“It’s all about YOU” is our limited service plan, which provides wedding planning for the month leading up to your big day. This package is for the couple who plan their wedding themselves. Then during the final month with the details in place, they can take a break and enjoy the last weeks leading up to the wedding. A Thorough Fare will meet with you a month before your wedding to go over vendor contracts and talk about your big day. This package includes a full time professional wedding consultant to assist in overall management of the Rehearsal, Wedding Ceremony and reception.
