There is nothing more exciting than signing that freshly printed Pavilion contract, making your wedding official. It is the moment that all the fun begins, and your creative juices begin to flow; diving into a design, customizing your Henrici’s menu, choosing linens, trying on gorgeous gowns, selecting vendors, and it’s all for beautiful evidence of you and your groom.
That all sounds fabulous, but let’s admit that along the way you may have some stress and frustration out of wanting the wedding day to just get here already! That is why our team is here to help you remember that planning a wedding should be nothing short of happiness and excitement… Each day you come to us with different questions, it is our job as The Pavilion and Henrici’s Team to reassure you that we are here to guide you along the way.
Here are some common questions that we feel will ease your mind as you depart on this incredible journey to “I Do”.
Q. Who will be our point of contact during the planning process?
A. Kacie, The Pavilion Sales Coordinator, and Bobbi, Henrici’s Catering Manager, will be your main contacts throughout your planning.
Kacie with The Pavilion will handle any logistical questions (i.e. the reservation process, questions during the planning pertaining to the space, vendor recommendations, planning recommendations, wedding day timelines, floor plans, etc.). You can contact Kacie anytime at (815) 629.2220 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Bobbi with Henrici’s Catering will take care of all questions and information relating to food and beverage. You can contact Bobbi anytime at (815) 484.9130 or email@example.com.
Q. We booked our wedding date at The Pavilion and would like to begin selecting wedding vendors. How do we know what vendors we need and who we should choose?
A. After reserving your wedding date, you should begin selecting wedding vendors fairly quickly to ensure availability. Some common vendors we know you’ll need will be a baker, dj, florist, photographer, and wedding day hair/makeup.
We suggest choosing vendors directly from our preferred list to make your life that much easier and your wedding day that much smoother. Check those vendors out here.
Keep in mind that you are welcome to search out other vendors for different planning aspects, and you can reach out to Kacie for suggestions. Some vendors we did not list might be furniture rental companies, officiants, ceremony musicians, or even carriage services!
Q. HELP! What hotel and shuttle information do you recommend for our traveling wedding guests?
A. We suggest that if your guests are traveling from the Chicagoland, you choose our recommended Rockford area hotels; Rockford hotels are a.) Conveniently located off of the interstate, making swift travel for your guests and b.) Work directly with specific shuttle companies, allowing for one stop planning (there is also the potential for a discounted shuttle rate!) The Rockford hotels are listed below…
Q. How can we customize our catering package?
A. One of the greatest perks to working with an exclusive caterer is that you are our only focus. This allows us the time and creativity to tailor menus that fit your style… From BBQ to Brunch, S’Mores Stations to Sangria Stations, we pride ourselves on bringing your imagination to life.
So there you have it, a few of the most commonly asked questions. Now go on and plan the best wedding you know how. This is a once in a lifetime, and it is meant to reflect you.
