What’s the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator?
A wedding planner works with you every step of the way to plan your wedding. They assist you in “planning” your wedding from day one up until the big day. This can start as soon as you get engaged and start thinking about the wedding. A planner will help you select themes, colors, venues, vendors, budget, and anything else wedding related along with being there on the day of your wedding to organize and direct. The wedding coordinator is someone who “coordinates” the day of events only. They will meet with you a month before your wedding to get a list of your vendors and tasks to accomplish day of. They will assist with set up, tear down, act as a contact for your vendors on that day and handle anything else that arises. A coordinator is there for your one big day while a planner is there through the whole process for those late night, last minute, crazy ideas and to figure out how to create everything that you dream of.
Do I need partial planning or full service planning?
The big difference between our two planning packages is the amount of work that you have to do, as the couple. Full service planning is exactly what it sounds like! We handle all of the details, vendor selection, rentals, and decor. We follow your vision and get everything approved by you, but you don’t have to do any of the actual work! You are able to contact us or meet with us whenever you want and we will be there for all of your meetings. With partial planning, the couple is expected to do about 50% of the wedding planning work. This usually includes the clients finding their venue, caterer and officiant on their own along with creating a basic decor guide. We will assist with finding and selecting half of your vendors with recommendations based on your budget and style. We will help you come up with your decor and style. With partial planning, you get monthly meetings to discuss details with us.
What is your payment policy?
We require a 25%, non-refundable,deposit to reserve your date. The remainder of the balance is due 1 week before your wedding. We accept credit/debit cards via PayPal (no account required) or in person. We also accept checks and cash.
