Full Event Design & Planning

From custom stationery tied with hand-dyed silk ribbon and mailed using vintage stamps, to the perfect linens draping over your dining tables, imagine stunning floral arrangements, exceptional lighting flickering overhead and custom draping framing you as you make your way in for your first dance.  Escort card displays that are as unique as you and musicians that match the mood, Magnolia Event Design will ensure that the vision of your event is carried through your event by all vendors involved in your special day.

From the private estates of Montecito to the wine country barns of Santa Ynez to the beachfront ballrooms in Santa Barbara and the sandy shores of Santa Monica, to the private villas in Bali and the tropical island of Antigua, the Magnolia Event Design team will create an event that fits your style and personality and play off of the elements that are important to you.  

We make sure that every detail is thought of in our Full Service Event Design and Planning package, which includes a custom designed event.  Complete with vendor selection, contract negotiation and management, we oversee the install of the entire event and make sure everything is set-up according to plan.  Then on the big day we make sure it is executed flawlessly, so you can enjoy each and every moment with your loved ones.

Sampling of what’s included:

  • We help to determine your personal style and find elements that are unique to you as a couple, to make the day uniquely yours. We then translate this into terms that event professionals will understand and work with the floral designer, lighting/draping, linen, stationer and rental companies to to create a cohesive overall design, set-up, and flow of your wedding- from the save the date to the good bye

  • We set up and attend planning meetings with you

  • We review all contracts and negotiate pricing on your behalf

  • We set up room blocks for your out of town guests

  • We attend the event space walk-through and your menu tasting

  • We coordinate all of the details of your wedding day with each of your vendors and provide them with a detailed timeline of the day.

  • Access to our personalized planning software and design programs

On the wedding day, a lead planner and an assistant (determined based on number of guests) will be on site making sure your event runs smoothly and timely from beginning to end.  We want you to enjoy each and every moment of your special day with your family and friends!
