Why do I need a wedding planner if my venue has a coordinator?
Most good venues will have an event co-ordinator. This is great to help with all things relating to the venue, and they are certainly a useful go-to person.
A wedding planner helps bring together all aspects of your day, managing bookings and acting as the main point of contact for all of your vendors throughout the process. As well as ensuring everything runs smoothly on the day with a carefully planned schedule of timings for everyone involved. A wedding planner can also assist with achieving your vision, from providing ideas, to decorating on the day. The main difference being an in-house event coordinator manages the wedding day itself, they’re not responsible for managing the planning process and supplier bookings ahead of the wedding day.
Will you be at my wedding?
Of course! After months of planning we want to be there on the day, not just to see the beauty of everything come together, but also to ensure you can relax, enjoy your day and rest assured that we are on hand to help everything run smoothly or efficiently deal with any unexpected hiccups should they arise.
Depending on the size and logistics of your wedding either myself and/or a partner planner will be present from set up until the point the last supplier is providing their service. After this point we will quietly slip away and leave you to dance ’til your heart’s content!
Is there a minimum budget that you work with?
No. We plan all kinds of events; from intimate elopements with just the bride and groom, to large parties. We understand everyone has a different budget so we will always try to make things as cost effective as possible for you. If something isn’t within your preferred price point then we will tell you and make alternative suggestions instead that may be more suitable.
How much do you charge?
When planning a wedding you want to understand what things cost and as quickly as possible so you can set your budget and move forward. We understand each wedding is different and every couple has their own requests and requirements, so the slightly frustrating answer is that it really depends on what services you would like.
Can I get a consultation? How much does it cost?
Of course! We’d never dream of trying to plan your event without making sure we know just want you’re looking for and how to proceed. There is a $200 consultation fee that will be waived if you decided to move ahead with the event. If for some reason you decide against using us for your event, the $200 fee will be due 30 days after the consultation.
