FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why hire a Wedding Coordinator?
The journey to your wedding is one of the most exciting times of your lives - but that doesn’t mean it comes without stress. This may be the first time you’ve planned such a big event and it can be confusing - it’s more than just colors, flowers and cupcakes! Your coordinator will help you navigate the entire process. Plus, a Wedding Coordinator can save your precious time spent researching and planning by helping you budget, choose vendors, negotiate contracts and save you money (cha-ching!). You focus on the best day of your lives - and let us handle the details.
I am already working with a Catering/ Venue Manager, and he/she is very helpful. Why do I need your help?
Typically, Catering Managers at hotels or venues have the job of overseeing the wedding details that are directly related to the venue (and sometimes the food and beverage as well). They likely have many clients and upcoming events to juggle and may not have the time and attention to give your wedding the focus it deserves. They are NOT responsible for your additional vendor management, running your rehearsal, making sure your day-of events run according to schedule - or even cueing you to walk down the aisle!
Our professional Wedding Coordinators supplement the services offered by your Catering Manager and onsite event staff. The bottom line? Catering Managers and Wedding Coordinators are two completely separate roles - that can work in tandem to give you the best event experience possible.
How can I determine which Coordination “Package” I need? What if I don’t see exactly what I am looking for in one of your packages?
No sweat! We’re here to help. Once we’re in touch, we’ll ask you a few questions to learn about your upcoming wedding. Next, we’ll meet for a complimentary consultation where we’ll discuss your coordination needs and answer any questions you have! Once we have a good grasp on what you’re looking for, we’ll determine what package is a good fit - or can customize something just for you.
Do you have ideas on how to make my wedding special, unique, and memorable?
Absolutely! One of our favorite parts of the process is working with our clients to brainstorm and create the ideal vision for your wedding tailored especially to you! We stay on top of all current trends in the wedding industry and always have a little magic in our back pocket.
Will I lose control of my own wedding after hiring a Coordinator?
Definitely not! This is your big day - not ours. We’re here to help guide you through the wedding process, not take over, and we’ll offer you as much or as little help as you’d like.
A Wedding Coordinator is expensive; can’t my friends or family help out?
A coordinator is an investment in making sure your wedding day is flawless and stress-free to you and your family. Your friends, family members are guests who want to enjoy the day and celebrate with you - and we let them focus on making memories, telling you how fabulous you are, and documenting the day (hashtag wedding goals!).
Do you charge a flat rate for your services or a percentage based on budget?
We charge a flat rate for our services. We believe that you should not have to pay more or less for our services as our couples have a range of wedding budgets. If you decide to work with us and wish to add additional services, those additional services are either priced a la carte or we offer the option of a set hourly rate.
Will you work with vendors I have already found or do I have to work with your preferred vendors?
This is your day and we’re happy to work with any vendor, friend, or family member that you have selected. We do have venues and vendors that we can recommend, but your vendors are up to you. Your day, your choice!
Do you take credit cards and can we have a payment plan?
Yes. We accept all major credit cards and we offer affordable payment plans to our couples. We’ll work together to make sure you feel comfortable with your payment arrangement.
Do you take more that one wedding per day?
No. We focus on one wedding per day to ensure couples have our undivided attention during the most important day of their lives!
