FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we need an event planner?

An event planner’s primary goal and responsibility is to help you stay focused and organized. We’re here to help you stay on track, refer to you reputable vendors, supply a wealth of resources, and negotiate on your behalf and carry out your vision. In addition to planning your event, if you engage us for services, we will wimbly react to any possible wrinkle that may occur.

What makes your service different than other coordinators?

Our experience and attention to detail. We are able to take care of all the details in an organized & efficient manner, while maintaining poise, style & grace.

How early should couples start to plan their wedding? Hire a wedding coordinator?

Anywhere from 9-12 months prior to the wedding date is a good time to start planning. You don’t want to wait until the last minute and feel overwhelmed, but you also don’t want to be planning for too long. I do recommend hiring your wedding coordinator right away, even for the ‘month of/day of’ package. You’ll want to get a contract signed to ensure the coordinator is available for your wedding date.

What types of events do you plan?

We gladly plan any type of event. Everything from your dream wedding with hundreds of guests to corporate/Not-for Profit meetings and everything in between. No matter what your dreams or budget; we can make your vision a reality.

What type of packages do you offer?

We offer several packages depending on the type of service the bride is looking for and how much assistance. We have our Signature Package, which is our ‘month of/day of’ package. We have our Premium Package, which is a mid-level package. And we have our Ultimate Package, which is our full service package. We can also customize packages to meet specific needs.

What does a Wedding Coordinator cost?

Since each event is different, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us to determine which services will best fit your needs.

How do I book a date with you?

By emailing, calling or filling out the contact form on our website. We will schedule a free, no obligation consultation with you to make sure we are a good fit and that we can meet your needs. Most consultations take about 1 hour.

Can we hire you as soon as we get engaged or should we wait?

As soon as you get engaged is recommended. Dates are booked well in advance and the sooner we begin planning, the better! If you are interested in the Signature Package, we recommend booking as soon as you have secured your date & venue.

Will you work with vendors we select, or only those you recommend?

We will absolutely work with your choice of vendors, however we have a great team of preferred vendors that we work with should you need any referrals.

A Wedding Coordinator is expensive; can’t my friends or family help out?

Just like you, your friends & family want to enjoy the day and celebrate with you rather than working your event for you

What is the difference in a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator?

A venue coordinator oversees the on site staff, to make sure they are fulfilling their contractual obligations, serving food on time, etc. A lot of times the venue coordinator is not there for the duration of the event &/or they have other events they are overseeing on property during the same time. A wedding coordinator works only for you to make every aspect run smoothly, greet all your vendors, send out a timeline prior, make sure you are having a great time celebrating and to ensure that your vision has become a reality.

Why should a bride and groom hire a wedding coordinator?

To truly enjoy their wedding day. To invest in their friends, family & guests without worrying about the details themselves. To have a peace of mind that everything will run smoothly. Wedding coordinators are professionals who have experience and industry relationships that will allow the brides wedding vision come to life.

As a vendor, what are the benefits to working with a wedding coordinator such as yourself?

So often I am told by other vendors that I am very easy to work with and very professional and friendly. I am flexible and get along with everyone. I don’t see myself as a higher rank than the other vendors, which I am told some coordinators do. We are all there for the best interest of the bride & groom. It’s so important to work as a team on the wedding day with all vendors making sure everything goes well and to ensure a smooth & flawless event.

Can I get a consultation? What 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. Although we seriously doubt this would happen we need to anticipate all eventualities.

Do I have to go through your vendors if I hire you as my planner/designer?

The short answer is, no. However, we have worked hard at developing these relationships and we can guarantee the quality of the service of vendors we suggest. However, we are more than happy to work with any vendors you would prefer.

My venue offers an on-site coordinator for the day of the event. Do I still need an event planner?

Although it is great to have an on-site coordinator for the day of your event, we will help guide you from your planning beginnings to the day of your event. For those of you who do not have an on-site coordinator, we will be there to help as well if you so desire.

Do you carry insurance?

Absolutely!

What seperates you from other event planners?

It boils down to the fact that we will treat your event as if it is our own. We will be there to make your dreams a reality and help you figure out what your options are. Unlike other larger planning services, we will give you one on one service and will be there to ensure a successful event!

How soon should I book your services?

This all depends on the type and size of event you are planning. If it’s a wedding, we would say to start the conversation when you’ve set your date (we recommend 8-12 months in advance where possible). Other events can certainly take a shorter planning time. Don’t worry; your cost would not increase if you started earlier. We still only bill based on the total number of hours spent working on your event. All in all, always start the planning early. It’s better to have some breathing room as the event approaches. That being said, we’re totally comfortable working in a last minute, high-stress environment, so if you find yourself needing to plan a last minute event, don’t hesitate to call. We’ll let you know if it’s not possible to do, but our attitude is “there is always a way”.

How often will we meet?

This is best answered when we have our first consultation. Once we know what you would like your event to be like, we can make a schedule. At the time of the consultation, we will come up with an estimate for total number of meetings and hours needed in order to help you stick to your budget.
