Master of Ceremonies
Mike Bell says "Not only every great wedding, but anything grand: begins with a plan.
Most our our couples partner with us between 6 months and 2 years
before the wedding day but we can bring together
a stellar wedding from scratch in as little as 60 days!
We plan together
We have 2 Partial Planning Packages:
The "Perfect Match" and "Endless Love". Both cover a large portion of the planning by saving you hours looking for different vendors and creative partners, and using our in house services.
We provide the service of making hundreds of choices and ensuring that the hard work of picking things that will work together seamless and stress free is done for you.
Mike Bell performs as your ceremony Officiant, Host & Liaison, and DJ/MC while his team helps coordinate the plan.
Day of Coordination
COUPLE PLANS EVERYTHING
MBW FACILITATES AND MANAGES
This is the essential level of service. You plan the design, aesthetic and timeline. We start organization about a week before the wedding, and facilitate things on the day of the wedding, like directing guests, and helping to ensure all the layout is according to how you planned it. We also can help make any general wedding decisions that need to be made due to last minute changes. If it's mentionable: It's manageable.
With this package you'll choose your own vendors, creative partners, and create your own timeline. When we review your information the week prior we will let you know of any last minute items that need to be addressed to have a smooth stress free event.
The Perfect Match
Investments with MBW range from $5,200 to around $8,000, and includes 3 simple services:
Day of Coordination
Couples who choose The Perfect Match option generally have an overall budget of $20-$70k, and the range in price is usually dictated by how many add ons and extras the couple wishes to have regarding such needs as does the officiant need a microphone and speakers at the ceremony, to how large the DJ's sound and light system needs to be. This could include things like projectors for slide shows, uplighting, dancing on clouds, cold sparklers, etc., or how many assistants might be needed for setup and teardown due to certain venue's time constraints.
Add your venue, photographer, caterer and decor, as we have a wedding!
The Endless Love
Investments with MBW range from $9,600-$22,500 and includes the following exemplary services:
Month of Coordination
MBW Preferred Vendors and Creative Partner lists
MBW Memorable Moments Consultation
MBW Party Poppers Consultation
MBW Online Planning Portal
MBW Timeline Template
Couples who choose this option generally have an overall budget of
$40-90k, and are looking to add some flair to their event beyond just a basic wedding.
We provide consultation on everything from your budget allocation, an overall design aesthetic, logistics and timeline program management. Access to our personalized online planning portal using our signature color coordinated templates ensures fluid communication between the couple and our team.
While Mike has the major bases covered for you, you will need some extras to really pull the event together. After deciding which planning base option is right for you, the next part of a Mike Bell Wedding is the Vendors (rentals, hair & makeup, transportation, photographer, caterer, etc.)
We do stock some rentals and decor, pipe & drape, specialty linens, and other exclusive items. #somethingborrowed
MBW PARTY POPPERS
Once the essential decisions have been determined, we get to add the icing to really make your wedding luxurious and as unique as you are. Those extra details are what we call MBW PARTY POPPERS!
The MBW Party Poppers! inspiration page is just the piece de la resistance, helping us finalize the finishing touches.
Ideas range from Silent Disco, appearances from Celebrity entertainers, extraordinary grand entrances such as arriving by helicopter, reception art sculptures and more. This list is only available to clients.
MBW SIGNATURE MEMORABLE MOMENTS
In 20 years of performing weddings for couples and their guests from around the world, I've learned everyone takes something unique away from the event experience that they will hold dear to them forever.
Traditions have become what they are for a reason, and each has its own purpose.
Integrate classic wedding traditions or start new ones! We further customize the wedding day experience, using our MEMORABLE MOMENTS inspiration worksheet.
Examples of MEMORABLE MOMENTS would be The First Look, Speeches and toasts, The Father & Daughter Dance, etc.
This gives the event timeline substance and depth without growing your budget.
