What is Madison Co.? Madison Co. is a gifting company that primarily creates welcome gifts for engaged couples and their guests. We offer our clients the opportunity to customize their gifts to their specific taste, allowing their wedding guests the opportunity to get to know them one gift at a time. In addition to serving our couples, we provide our gifting services to businesses alike.
What gifts do you offer? Is customizing available? We offer gifts for out of town wedding guests, bridesmaids, groomsmen, and swag bags for businesses. Customization is absolutely available and encouraged! We want all of our products to reflect you as a couple, and for the personality of your business to shine through.
What events do you specialize in? How involved is this process? We predominantly specialize in weddings, but our services extend to launch parties and businesses that want to offer personalized products. Involvement is totally up to the clients. We want this process to be as stress free as possible. For some that’s remaining hands off, and letting us take over, while others care about the details, but just may not have the extra time to put it together. We offer different packages based on how involved the client wants to be. All of the packages begin with a questionnaire in order to familiarize ourselves with our clients. Our basic package includes us providing the blueprint for the gifts, and the client goes out and makes the purchases and assembles; the standard package includes a basic model that we have in place and the client has the option to make modifications; the premium package fully involves the client, and there is open communication throughout. With the standard and premium packages we fully assemble.
What is your favorite part about the planning process? My favorite part about the planning process is adding the little details that count, while eliminating the stress that comes along with it. Everyone knows that the details are what makes an event truly special, but it’s usually an after-thought when you are juggling an ever changing budget, booking caterers, etc.
What do you want the QC to know about Madison Co.? While Madison Co. is the new kid on the block, we are here and looking to bring lots of creativity to Charlotte, while also connecting with all of the local talent in our little big city! Gifting is such a personal experience, and we are excited to help create those moments one event at a time!
What is some advice that you would give a future bride or someone planning an event? Don’t forget the details! The little details are the things that your guests remember, and make them feel really welcomed. Pretty flowers and good food are great, but you want to incorporate the little things that will truly make your event standout. Take it easy! Your guests are going to enjoy your event regardless, so try not to get too hung up in the planning process. Have fun! As cliché as it is, we still forget to enjoy ourselves and soak up the moment! Events go by so quickly, so make sure you let you hair down and enjoy!
What are some unique things you would like locals to know about you and your business? While I am a banking professional during the day, my passion for weddings, details, and all things pretty tends to seep out post 5 o’clock. Starting Madison Co. has allowed me to exercise that aspect of my personality. I want Charlotte to know that Madison Co. is here to bring fresh ideas and lots of pretty to Charlotte’s wedding industry. Charlotte has a lot to offer as far as wedding innovation, and we at Madison Co. are so excited to contribute to this wonderful, creative community. We are looking forward to working with unique creatives throughout the QC with various backgrounds!
