Care, Compassion and Creativity - Everything you expect in your planner!
Congratulations on your Engagement!!
This is an incredibly exciting time of your life, and you should enjoy it to the fullest extent! Hiring a wedding planner is the absolute best decision you can make during the planning process and will guarantee that you enjoy the ride. We at Amore Events by Cody are known by our clients and other wedding professionals for our creativity, compassion and overall fresh approach to wedding planning. We take great pride in maintaining a boutique sensibility and a firm belief that with a smaller clientele, we can provide an unparalleled and focused level of service. Our planners are never pushy and encourage personalized concepts by providing recommendations to infuse your wedding with style and imagination. With our broad vendor knowledge and relationships and our understanding of the wedding industry and trends, Amore Events by Cody staff is in top condition to provide you with all you need to make your dream day a reality. We are sensitive to your budget and know the best vendors in the area who can create your vision in an affordable and cost-effective manner. Most importantly, we are available to oversee the planning process and the execution of the wedding to ensure that no stone goes unturned, no detail overlooked, and that your day is entirely stress free for you and your families.
Our Wedding Décor
Amore Events by Cody offers a unique collection of wedding décor, which sets us apart from our competitors. Free access to all these decorations and flourishes is offered to Amore Brides who book our full-planning package. We have spent countless hours researching and purchasing items and we are constantly adding to our collection. Most of our brides take advantage of this opportunity to further save time and money. For brides that book our Wedding Day Management and Partial Planning Package, our décor is available for rent.
How the Decor Works
Amore Events staff will help you select items from our collection to tie into your aesthetic, vision and venue. With our vast experience at many Charlottesville-area venues, we’ll be able to make recommendations for décor and aesthetic to transform the location into the perfect space for your wedding.
On your wedding day, we will transport your selected items to the venue and handle all set-up and break-down of these items at no additional cost. Many brides believe that purchasing their own décor will save them money and they forget the fact that they then need to find someone to bring and set it all up, often relying on a parent or close friend. Let us handle everything. Between our competitive planning rates and access to our décor, you’ll be shocked by the money and stress you’ll save by booking with Amore Events by Cody.
