What is one of the biggest differences between your planning packages?
The primary difference across the board is that with Full planning, we are doing all the leg work while you make the decisions. From vetting to initiating contracts with your vendors. Freeing you up to do other things, like work and simply enjoying this time in your lives! Your vendors are the foundation of your event and this is the primary area where couples tend to struggle in the planning process. It takes much more time than many realize and couples who are working, going to school or both...simply don't have the time this incredibly important planning aspect requires.
On the flip side, when it comes to Partial planning, we are taking your preferences and budget for the different vendor types and recommending hand selected vendors that our experience tells us are the best fit for your vision. This saves you time because you are not aimlessly searching for vendors, not knowing which ones are right for you until after you've spent time finding and requesting quotes.
With Month Of, we provide you access to a list of area vendors and you locate and vet the ones that stand out to you and proceed with requesting quotes.
Why do you not post your prices on your website and require a consultation to discuss pricing?
This is somewhat of a loaded question but here are the primary reasons!
1. Every couples needs are different and every wedding is different so we prefer to hop on a call and actually talk to you and get more insight about you, your wedding and your level of commitment so we can recommend the best package that suits your needs.
2. As in any consumer market, supply and demand as well as changes in cost of running our company will most often determine pricing. We are proud that our pricing rarely changes but on occasion it becomes necessary.
A lot of wedding planners only give a certain number of planning calls in their packages. Do you do the same thing?
That's an easy one! NO! We don't believe that it is in the clients best interest to force them to compact the conversations necessary to planning their wedding into a handful of planning calls. We do require that planning calls are on a scheduled basis, so that every client gets the time they deserve based on their service package, but we do not limit those calls.
Are you only available for a certain number of hours on our wedding day?
Again, the answer is no! You are not booking us by the hour but to be there to make sure your day is perfect and that isn't something that can always be limited within a certain timeframe. Often times, we are one of the first to arrive and one of the last to leave, depending on your timeline and the flow of your event.
Will you set everything up on my wedding day and clean up at the end of the night?
Our job as your wedding planner & coordinator is to plan and coordinate. This does not encompass setting everything up or cleaning up after your event. We are happy to set up a few small but placement ready details on your wedding day such as your guest book, favors and a couple of photos as part of our service but our focus needs to be on making sure everything is running smoothly rather than being distracted doing set up. We encourage couples to hire a decorator and clean up crew or secure volunteers from their friends and family to handle these tasks. With that said, we do offer clients the option to book our set up and clean up crew, for an additional fee.
Why are wedding planners so expensive and why shouldn't I just book someone who is cheap and save some money?
Simply put, wedding planners base their pricing on their experience and the work they produce. We are thankful that our tremendous success has enabled us to maintain our company as a full time operation that is 100% dedicated to our clients,100% of the time! We will never beg, bargain or chase clients to book us. We don't need to do that because we understand that just as we are not a good fit for every client, every client may not be a good fit for us.
Why should we invest in a Wedding Planner?
Think of wedding planners as wedding day insurance. It is one of the most valuable investments you can make for your wedding day. Hiring a planner will give you peace of mind that the substantial amount of time and money that you will spend on your wedding will all be worth it and handled by a seasoned professional who knows the in's and out's of the wedding industry.
Wedding planners not only take a burden off the bride and groom on wedding day, but they also free up the parents. You and your parents are going to be pulled in a million directions seeing loved ones that you may have not seen in a long time....everyone just wants a piece of you on your wedding day. We want you all to be able to visit and enjoy yourselves instead of solving problems like finding a missing cake knife.
A WEDDING IS A SYMPHONY...
You are the composer and we are the conductor.
The wedding vendors are the orchestra and the guests are the audience.
At the end of the night, the guests should be left with an overwhelming feeling that they have just witnessed a masterpiece.
Every part of the composition is important but the most pivotal elements of any performance are the tempo and volume of each piece.
The person in control of the ebb and flow of every song, the individual to whom every section looks to for the dynamics...is the person that can make your wedding a showpiece.
This person is your Wedding Planner
At The Event Planner we have created a fantastic orchestral community led by our skillful conductors.
As your Certified Wedding Planners, we will take your vision...the sonata that you may have spent years composing and bring it to life through the connection we have with the brass, woodwinds, percussion and strings that make up our own Carnegie Hall ready orchestra of preferred vendors.
Are you ready to compose your own unforgettable symphony?
