Frequently Asked Questions

How do I start planning a wedding?
Get an ideal date, guest count and budget in your head then head to see a wedding planner! Even if you mainly just need someone to help pull your day together they can get you headed in the right direction. Some people check out a venue and photographer in these first steps as well but a planner can help make sure your budget is being allocated in the best places!
What is a wedding planner's role?
A wedding planner wears many hats. Depending on who you choose some also design, produce, and manage your event. We handle vendor communication, logistics, and timing to make sure your event is flawless in your guests eyes. It is like a steering wheel and gas pedal of a car, you can have all of the other parts and it will run but who knows where it will go or how fast, you need someone overseeing the grand scheme of the day and ensuring everyone is in communication and working as a team.
Can my mom/friend/cousin/sister coordinate my wedding, they helped with the planning?
I would never say they can't, some are very organized and would do a good job. However, we have been doing this for years and have seen everything under the sun, we help you avoid those mishaps that come up before they even have a chance. You also want these people to enjoy the day. A lot of this job is handling the little things that pop up on event day. It doesn't fail that these things happen as you are walking down the aisle or when pictures that they need to be in are taking place. These people also probably want to enjoy the party and it can be hard manage everything while you are on the dance floor.
Is there a minimum budget you work with?
Not generally, we can do a lot with smaller budgets. Most of our weddings that you see start at 25k. The main thing to keep in mind is that the lower the budget the lower your guest count needs to be to pull together your dream event. Also, come in open minded if you have a strict budget, we will suggest cost saving options.
