If you are a DIY couple, or if the Barb Wired calendar is not open for your date, we are still available to help you plan and prepare for your big day. You may have a friend or family member who will direct your ceremony and reception, Barb Wired is glad to offer our consulting services to you to help you draft a useful checklist, ceremony seating, and a seamless wedding day itinerary. This option is perfect for couples who may not be getting married in the central Virginia area as Barb Wired consultation services are available to clients regardless of their proximity to Charlottesville.
Assorted décor items are available at no charge with most packages. See (and “like”) our Facebook page for current selections. We welcome the opportunity to learn more about YOUR wedding and how we might help your save on décor items!
