It all depends on what services our brides are looking for from their wedding planner. We always recommend hiring your wedding planner as soon as possible. The 2022 year is filling up fast with weddings and we are planning for an even busier year for 2023 but let's start with a baseline idea.
For brides looking for a full process planner we recommend you book your planner 10-12 months in advance.
For brides looking for a partial planner we recommend anywhere from 3-6 months in advance.
Do you invite your wedding planner to your wedding?
Yes absolutely, Just as you would include your vendors on your guest list. It’s important your planner is there to be sure everything goes as you both planned. It also again relieves that stress on our brides the day of the wedding should anything take a turn.
Do I include a meal for my wedding planner at the reception?
Yes, just as you would for your vendors for their services, we work hard to keep your day going smoothly and after so many hours your vendors and planner do get hungry just as guests do. We do highly recommend adding your planner to the meal number.
Do wedding planners have pictures of weddings they have planned before?
Yes, wedding planners tend to have pictures to look back on for reference of what they do. It helps our brides better understand what service they are getting and if this wedding planner will fit their needs.
How many meetings should I expect to have with my wedding planner?
We recommend meeting with your planner once a month to be sure you're keeping up with what needs to be completed still on your list and that your planner is getting plenty of communication of what you’re wanting.
What do wedding planners wear when attending a ceremony, reception, or rehearsal?
Every wedding planner is different in how they dress for events but oftentimes you can find wedding planners in some sort of black attire. It is a formal and clean look for your planner on your big day especially since your planner may be there.
Overall wedding planners are your best friend! Whether you're wanting just a quick opinion or some direction or a friend to take the load off your plate we got you covered.
