For many brides, hiring a wedding planner is the most efficient way to avoid the stress that comes with executing flawless nuptials and a rip-roarin’ reception. Faith O. Folayan does just that, bringing peace to a color scheme dilemma or any day-of disaster since 2009 at her event planning business, Urbane Montage. Now, Folayan is starting a new chapter in her business, yet continuing to do what she enjoys most: making brides (and their appreciative spouse!) happy.
This Love Weddings will be a complete rebrand of Urbane Montage, and officially launches today, Monday, November 10, with a new website and business model: Brides can now pick and choose exactly what services they need. One such service is the “Final Prep Package,” which includes helpful tips like vendor referrals, a customized budget, and a wedding to-do list. “I have the basics, but then the couple can decide what they want to add or remove from the services that we offer them. We’ll help you along the way, holding your hand through the process to make sure you’re less stressed,” says Folayan.
As part of the launch, This Love is giving away a date night (think: wine, food, and canvas painting) on its website. “We love celebrating the wedding day, but it’s not just about that. It’s about their marriage, so I want them to enjoy time with one another. I always recommend my couples do a date night, once a week, to focus on themselves,” says Folayan. Enter on thisloveweddings.com between November 10 and 15 to qualify for the giveaway.
