Some FAQs to think about:

What does an event consultant do?

Depending on your needs, a consultant can be helpful in a myriad of ways. If you are working full time, it can be convenient to have a third party help with planning phone calls and research, if not more.

Our consultants can assist with your budget and be a "coach" to you if you just need some guidance through the process of planning, including providing referrals to reputable vendors.

Our consultants can help you plan your entire event if you wish-from site selection to decor and entertainment. We can help with vendor negotiations, attend meetings for/with you, and answer etiquette questions.

Your consultant can finalize details the week prior to, and then be there the day of your event to ensure everything goes as planned.

With so much else to pay for, how can we justify hiring a planner?

An event planner can actually help you save money. He or she can help you stick to a budget, as well as locate vendors in your price range.

Especially when it comes to your wedding this is probably the biggest, most expensive, and most elaborate event you'll ever host. A professional will ensure your wedding and reception are everything you've dreamed of-without you or your family being burdened by handling every detail.

Why do we need a "day-of" coordinator?

We recommend that you have at least one consultant with you the day of your event. A "day-of" coordinator can handle the last-minute issues that you shouldn't have to worry about, such as gathering various guests for pictures, toasts, introductions, and coordinating various vendors to ensure that the timeline for your event is followed and the results are as you planned. Instead of putting yourself and your guests to "work" at your event, you can all enjoy the celebration worry-free.
