Finding What You Want Is Hard…

You’ve got big dreams.

You’ve probably been on Pinterest for months already, right?

And now it seems like you can’t find anything that you want, or if you do find it, it’s way out of your budget.

Maybe you’re struggling to find the perfect venue?  You’ve already checked out all the usual hotspots, but are hoping to find a hidden gem that will make your event stand out from the crowd.

You’ve spent hours (let’s be honest…weeks probably) on Google looking for vendors and asking for recommendations from every Facebook Group in your area.

You’re sorting through pages and pages of notes on vendors and venues you think you might like, trying to compare them and see which are the best fit for your big day.

It’s overwhelming.

It feels like it’s taking FOREVER.

And you’re still not confident that you’ve found exactly the right pros to bring your dream to life.

You want it to be perfect.

We Really Have Thought of Everything

And Now That You Have So Many Options – Get Picky!

Don’t be overwhelmed by having thousands of choices at your fingertips.  There are so many ways that you can filter venues and vendors to find exactly what you’re looking for.

All of our listings, regardless of type, have the same basic filters:
Price Range: Inexpensive, Affordable, Moderate & Luxury
– Are they locally owned?
– Are they explicitly LGBTQ friendly?
– Are they available on short notice or do you need to book far in advance?

Our venues have even more ways to narrow down the results:
Seating Capacity
– Are they child-friendly?  Pet-friendly?
Universally accessible?
– Do they provide any additional items, like linens or AV equipment?  Or services, like an onsite wedding coordinator or valet parking?
– Are you allowed to bring in outside vendors or alcohol or do you have to use theirs?
– Will you have exclusive use of the facility or do they rent out to multiple events on the same day?
– What is the style of the space?  Is it rustic, traditional, modern, etc.?
– Is it best for or only available in certain seasons (like a summer vs a winter event)?

Choose your vendors based on what is most important to you!

Our food vendors have a number of tags as well:
– Do they have an allergy menu?
– Do they offer ethnic or religious menu options (kosher or halal, for example)?
– Do they have a gluten-free menu?
– Do they offer locally grown or organic food?
– Do they have vegan or vegetarian options?
– Will they include a free tasting?
– Do they include any additional things like linens, silverware, or staff?
– Do they offer a pre-set menu only or can you customize it?
– Are they licensed by a health inspector to produce food?

How it Works

Reviews

Check out how vendors rank in reviews – we ask for feedback on quality – how good was the product you received; service – because good customer service is big deal; and communication – being able to get in touch (and keep in touch) is critical while you’re planning.  And make sure that you join the conversation to help other planners in our community by writing reviews about vendors that you’ve worked with.

Favourites

You can search, you can filter – and then you can save your favourites and compare.  Keep tabs on all of your favourite vendors while you decide who is best for you by saving them to a favourites wish list.  Line them up side by side to compare their amenities and see which has the exact combination you’re looking for.

Private Messaging

Connect with vendors instantly through the site.  Send them a message to get more info or to book an appointment.

Sharing

Get connected with any of your social media accounts.  You can share listings to your feed and see what your friends think about the vendors you’re looking at.

A Little About Us

Hi! I’m Anna, the founder of My Event Blueprint and an event planner based out of Edmonton.  I’ve been planning weddings, social and corporate events since 2009 and in that time, had built up a pretty large list of vendors in and around the city that I regularly shared with my clients.  In fact, the number one service I provide outside of coordination is vendor referrals because let’s face it, the internet can be an overwhelming place to navigate!  In early 2017, I decided to do some major research (literally hundreds of hours) to track down as many venues and vendors as possible, to expand this list and share it with everyone.

So here it is!  This has been a game-changer for me and I hope it is for you too!  Happy planning!!

Why This is Exactly What You Need

My Event Blueprint is a one-stop shop for every local event vendor and venue that you could hope to find.

You will save hours (days, even) of time searching, comparing and booking.

You’ll be able to stay on budget by knowing which vendors are in your price range.

You will find great local businesses that you never knew existed.

You will find exactly the right ingredients to make your dream event come to life.

FAQs

Do you really have that many vendors?

We have over 2300 venues alone and almost 4500 vendors overall with more being added every day.

What makes you different than any other directory out there?

Most directories only list businesses that can afford to pay for advertising. This means that big budget companies are on all of them, while many community gems with no ad budget are ever seen. While these directories may be free for planners to access, they show you only a tiny fraction of what is available in your area. By charging a minimal subscription rate, we can search for and list absolutely everyone so you have access to every option out there.

Why should I pay money to access something I can search on Google for free?

It will save you so much time! We have spent hundreds of hours collecting information from thousands of websites, Facebook pages, Kijiji ads, etc. And some of these vendors were not easy to find, so you may not even come across them in a regular Google search. We have put in the work for you to find all of your options, now all you need to do is choose between them.

What if I already have a wedding planner or event manager?

My Event Blueprint is still for you. You can save some of those valuable contract hours for things other than searching for vendor recommendations – like providing advice on your shortlist or joining you on venue visits to check things out in person.

What if I am an event planner?

Meet your new best friend. We’ll bet that you spend a ton of time providing venue and vendor referrals to your clients – imagine being able to cut that time in half or even more. This will also ensure you see new venues and vendors as they come onto the scene, while easily maintaining a list of your personal favourites. And don’t forget to list yourself – it’s always free to create a listing! 

How do I know I can trust the information in the listings?

We’ve personally checked each one of the vendor websites to collect their info. The listings are then sent to the vendors to verify and update and they’re invited back to update them regularly. But if you see something that you know is out of date – let us know and we’ll follow up to make sure the information is accurate.

What if a vendor I know is missing?

Let us know and we will invite them! While we’ve attempted to find as many venues and vendors as we could, we will undoubtedly miss some. But we are working hard so that our listing continues to grow every day and remain the most complete Edmonton event planning resource out there. We want to feature everyone, so if you know of somebody great that we should include – tell us about them!

Which areas of the city are included?

We have included all venues and vendors in: Edmonton, Strathcona County, Sturgeon County, Parkland County and Leduc County.

Will you be expanding to include other areas?

Yes!! We are currently working on the Calgary region, the Rocky Mountains and the Okanagan – and your subscription will include access to all of these locations as they are added. Get ready to plan your dream Canadian destination event with ease!

Let’s get started planning the day of your dreams!
