What does a wedding planner do before the wedding?
When you hire us as your wedding planners, we are with you throughout the entire planning process. We bring your wedding vision to life and are extremely familiar with venues and vendors that will match your style and budget. As your planners we know the answers to your questions, and ultimately keep you calm and excited as we plan and design one of the most important day of your lives.
What does the wedding planner do on the wedding day?
As your wedding planners we will be the first at the venue, and usually are the last to leave. We co-ordinate your day and will make sure all vendors are there, and where they are supposed to be. We will be there for any questions from the bridal party, vendors, the venue staff, and guests and will help keep the celebration on time throughout the entire day, and so much more.
What is the difference between a venue coordinator and a wedding planner?
The simple answer is: A venue coordinator works for the venue, and a wedding planner works for the couple. A venue coordinator will be dealing with all the aspects of the venue such as set up, the staff, food, etc. A wedding planner has planned, designed and set up your special day and is there to oversee the setup from all vendors, answer any questions, take care of any problems, and to make sure everything is exactly as the couple wants it.
Do you only work with certain venues and suppliers?
In a nutshell, the answer is no. If you are interested in a venue that is not listed on our website or have a preferred supplier in mind, then that’s absolutely open to discussion. Remember this is your day, and your decisions. However, the benefit of using our recommended venues and suppliers is that they’re tried and tested. We know that they are reliable and recommend them with more confidence than those that we have not used before.
We are happy to work with new venues and vendors, (if you’re comfortable that we have no prior experience with them).
Will you be at my wedding?
Of course! We wouldn’t miss it. 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.
Is there a minimum budget that you work with?
No. We plan all kinds of events, from intimate gatherings with just the bride and groom, to large celebrations. What’s far more important than the budget we are working with is how realistic it is for your requirements and preferences. Whilst we will always try to make things as cost effective as possible for you, there is a limit. If something isn’t feasible within your preferred price point, then we will tell you and make alternative suggestions 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. It is extremely difficult to provide set pricing as each wedding is unique and every couple has their own requests, requirements and budget limit, so the slightly frustrating answer is that it really depends on what services you would like.
However, to give you an idea of what to expect you are invited to fill in our form on the contact page and we can consult with you to understand your vision and requirements to then begin to create a budget for you.
