It has been just over a year now since the launch of our sister company, Heyday Events, and I am STOKED to be finally sharing a bit more about it over here on the blog! If you are in the wedding industry on Vancouver Island, you may have heard about Heyday, and we are all so appreciative of the amazing support that this wonderful community has given us so far! I thought it was about time though that I introduced Heyday formally, and shared with you what it is all about!
Heyday Events is a "Day-of Coordination" specialty company, meaning "day-of" is all that it does, and it does it right! Day of Coordination is an invaluable planning service that has been around for a long long time, but its title is often very misleading. Day of Coordination is so much more than help on just the day. A day-of coordinator typically becomes involved in the planning 1-2 months prior, helping the couple tie up any loose ends, put together timelines, and take on final confirmations with the vendors. It is the perfect service for those couples who are super excited to take on the planning themselves, but don't want to "work" their wedding. Or, for those couples who really see the value in having a professional on the day, but don't have the budget for a full service planner.
From 2010 - 2015, Day-of Coordination was a service that we offered at FKE, and we loved being able to help couples bring all their hard work and planning to life! In 2015 I decided to remove this service from FKE and focus solely on a Full Service/luxury planning experience for our couples. I see such value and importance in a really good Day-Of service though, and wanted to continue to offer that to couples in BC, hence the idea of Heyday was born! A company that would become known for stellar day-of coordination, and would also be a place for planners to learn, grow and become even more involved in the wedding industry. The team of "heyday makers" that we have is absolutely incredible, and all of the planners come from a great background in events. It has been such a pleasure working with them, providing guidance when needed, and seeing them work alongside some wickedly cool couples! Last season, we tested the waters (success!), and this upcoming wedding season, we are going full force! We have a lot of awesome weddings lined up for Heyday, and still have some weekends available this summer. SO.... if you, or someone you know, needs a bit of extra help pulling things together, or is at the point of wedding planning where they realize that yes, it IS a good idea to have a planner, check out Heyday Events, and give the girls a shout!
