Intimate Wedding Package

This intimate wedding service has been created especially for brides and grooms who just want to get married in a simple, elegant, and meaningful way without the huge costs that can add up very quickly when hosting a larger more traditional wedding celebration.

Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t have your cake and eat it too!  Introducing DreamGroup’s Intimate Vancouver Wedding Package… Where you CAN host a beautiful wedding you are proud to experience and share without breaking the bank!

These days many couples are quickly realizing that their initial wedding budget is falling short of the necessary amount needed to host a Vancouver wedding with the average 120-person Vancouver Wedding Budget ranging between 40-70K. We live in one of the most expensive cities in the world with ever rising costs and have even made the “Top 10 Most Expensive Cities in the World to be Married In” list!!  YAY???!

We speak with couples almost daily who are feeling overwhelmed and “poor” right out of the “I’m engaged” gate. It can be a very disheartening and frustrating place to be when all they want to do is celebrate this special time with their most important people in a way that represents their uniqueness and personal style.

So, what does a couple do?  

You can make the decision to host a beautiful wedding for up to 30 guests that will serve its purpose perfectly but keep wedding costs and your time investment down by hosting a thoughtful and elegant Intimate wedding. This is where our super popular Intimate Wedding Package comes in!  Going in you will know how much your wedding will cost, you will be assured that quality will not be compromised, and the decisions you do make will be enjoyable and easy as a result.  In the end you will come away happily married with only the most wonderful memories of a very special day that exceeded all expectations and a bank account that still has money in it! Haha!

This Intimate Wedding Package is geared specifically at the busy Vancouver or International couple looking to streamline the wedding planning process and host a wedding that includes all the popular “must haves”!  We’ve simplified the process by short-listing popular services — working only with professional vendors that are amazing at what they do – and by keeping the “to do” list succinct so that decisions can be made quickly and with confidence.

Often when “packages” are offered quality of service is compromised, but you can feel confident knowing that we would never allow that to happen under our watch!  From the freshest flowers and the tastiest cake, to the most talented musicians and photographers to delicious food and service — the quality you will experience will be beyond expectation. Our expectations are always higher than that of our clients! That is a DreamGroup promise!

Below we’ve included an outline of our Intimate Wedding Package.  This is just a jumping off point and the package is customizable as some products and services will be more important than others and the caliber expectation level of each service will also influence the price.  Once we have our detailed in-person or phone consultation we will create your own version geared specifically at your wants and needs.

Sample Intimate Vancouver Wedding Package:

  1. Initial Zoom Consultation to discuss all aspects of your wedding, answer questions, and create a customized package which will be emailed to you post chat.
  2. Sourcing and securing a venue(s) for the ceremony/or reception. If a standing ceremony takes place in a park or city space the location will be free.

Let the Planning begin!

“I think everyone should plan a wedding this way!  It was so easy and fun!  Thanks to you we had the west coast wedding we always talked about but didn’t have the time or know-how to arrange ourselves.  You made it so easy to hand off all the big-ticket items easing our mind knowing that we were going to be well taken care of and that our wedding was going to be beautiful and everything we imagined.  And it was!!  We loved every moment and so did our families many of whom flew in from Hong Kong and who were totally impressed with what we had arranged.  Even the checklists you provided were so helpful in keeping us focused before the wedding. And knowing you were only ever a phone call or email away (and you always seemed to get back to us far quicker than we would ever have expected) was so reassuring.  From the first day we met you during our consultation right through to after the wedding you have been so kind and helpful, and you know everything about weddings!  Thank you for giving us the wedding of our dreams.” ~ Tina and Nick
