Pretty Entertaining designs and executes Washington D.C. weddings that are fun, memorable, and uniquely you. Planning a really big celebration is something most people don’t do everyday, and that’s where a professional event planner comes in. We know all the parts, how they move, and how they should fit together. We do our best to keep you on-track and relaxed, and on the big day, we’re with you every step of the way. You know that picture you have in your head of the event you want? We’re here to make your vision a reality, and we strive to make it even better than you imagined.
Wedding Coordination by Pretty Entertaining is perfect for couples who want to do their own planning and vendor selection, but still want professional help on the day of the wedding.
We'll meet with you six weeks prior to your wedding day to learn all about your plans, then we'll review all of your vendor contracts and get to work putting together your detailed wedding day timeline. We'll accompany you on your final walkthroughs, confirm all of your logistics, and attend and direct your wedding rehearsal. On your wedding day we'll be there with two coordinators and our fabulous emergency kits, managing every detail so all you have to do is have a great time getting married.
Sound awesome? That's because it is! Contact us today to set up a complimentary one-hour meeting to learn more.
Wedding Coordination starts at $1950, and we're currently booking dates up to six months in advance for weddings in the Washington, D.C., area.
You're getting married! It's so exciting! Soon you’ll be swept up in whirlwind of shopping, cake tastings, flower selection, budget revisions, timeline scheduling, vendor management… Wait a minute. Did things just get less fun in here?
Yes, weddings are a lot of fun. We wouldn’t make weddings our job if they weren’t. But the fact is, along with the fun come some considerably less fun tasks. Things like developing and sticking to a budget. Managing a team of contractors. Fitting approximately 3,287 little things into a timeline only a few hours long and making sure it works seamlessly the first time (’cause that’s the only time you get).
That's why we’re here. Can you get married without the help of an event professional? Of course you can. But if you have the option of getting professional help, why wouldn’t you?
Pretty Entertaining has been planning Washington DC weddings since 2008. We have service packages to fit every need, and we’re always happy to customize a proposal just for you.

Planning a really stunning wedding can be challenging. It's easy to gather ideas you love, but editing all of those influences down into a cohesive plan that works -- and reflects who you are as a couple! -- is a little more difficult.
Pretty Entertaining's Wedding Design team will work with you to go beyond your collection of pinned and clipped images, learning what you love, what you don't love so much, and what makes you, You! “Stephanie, where do I even start? Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for making our wedding day absolutely perfect! It was everything I imagined and so much more. The only thing I would change would be to slow down time - that day went so fast! You truly captured everything I had envisioned for the past year and a half. I am so grateful for all of your help leading up to the wedding and making our day run so smoothly and flawlessly. I have no idea what we would have done without you. We are still receiving rave reviews on our wedding, and I do have to say, it was my most favorite day ever!!” — Athena, bride Our ultimate goal is to help you craft a celebration that tells your love story from start to finish, with every little detail working together beautifully.
