Basic Planning


Our most popular service! Perfect for the couple planning from out of town–Basic Planning focuses on wedding tasks that destination brides struggle with most often, and can be customized to perfectly fit your needs and budget.

Beginning with a detailed budget, we’ll walk you through as you begin your planning and connect you with reliable vendors and venues. We will secure reduced rates and reservations for guest accommodations and will assist you in setting up transportation services for your guests. We’ll even assist you with setting up rental orders, floor plans & time lines. Our full design package is included, to help you create the day you’ve always envisioned from the perfect linens & specialty chairs to exquisite flowers & unique escort card displays. As you plan we’ll keep you on track with a customized online planning page as well as planning consultations throughout your engagement. On your wedding day, Stella Event Design is on hand to offer all Day-of Coordination services and ensure that your day is stress-free and perfect.


Full Service Planning


Our all-inclusive full-service planning is perfect for brides planning destination weddings in Southwest Michigan and along the lake shore!

We’ll assist you from start to finish with a detailed budget, invitations, design concept, attire, vendors, guest accommodations, bar service, rentals, menu selection, music and more!
We will connect you with vendors who not only fit your budget, but also your style and personality. From the initial design concepts to vendor selection and the finishing touches, we focus on creating a wedding that expresses you, down to even the smallest detail. Because of our attentive and hands-on approach to each couple, we unfortunately have to limit the number of full-service weddings we handle each year–please contact us for availability.
