Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a Wedding Coordinator?
A wedding consultant will be a major asset during the planning stages and day of your wedding. She will save you valuable time and effort so that you can spend your time with your partner, your family and your friends during your engagement and leading up to your wedding day. You don’t want to be stressing over finding the best deals, the best venues, the most beautiful flowers, the tastiest cake or the best champagne for your wedding – you can leave that to us. Our experience has taught us where to look for these deals, if we haven’t already made contacts with specific vendors. And on your wedding day, you want to enjoy every moment, while we work behind the scenes, taking care of all those fine details that make your wedding uniquely you, and creating your Perfect Day.
What is a Wedding Consultant?
A wedding consultant is a trained professional whose expertise and contacts in the industry will help to provide you with the best wedding possible within your budget, and let you relax and shine on your wedding day.
Can I afford a wedding consultant?
We work with all kinds of budgets, and can cater to the individual needs of the couple. A consultant shouldn’t be an added expense; she should be part of your budget. Our relationships with vendors can often get you better deals, and so we can plan your wedding within your budget. We have a number of core packages, as well as add-ons and upgrades, rental packages, and our A La Carte services to offer. We are sure you will find something just for you that won’t break the bank.
Do I need a contract with my consultant?
Absolutely. A contract will outline conditions of the service you are paying for, all payment terms, and what the cost of the service is. A contract protects both parties, so you know exactly what you are getting, cancellation policies, and payment schedules.
When and how do I pay the fees?
Upon signing a contract with us, your initial payment will be due. This is usually 1/3 of your estimated cost. Approximately 2 months before the big day, another 1/3 will be due. Then 2 weeks prior to the wedding date, the last payment of your estimate is due. The day before the wedding your final payment will be due, presented to you on a final adjustment invoice. Payment terms are negotiable.
We accept Cash, Cheque, & Email Money Transfers or for a small fee we will accept credit cards.
Won’t a wedding consultant want to run the show?
We are here to help you, no matter how much or how little help you need. We will work with you and your budget, and put as much or as little time into helping you as you’d like. We listen to your needs and ideas and act on those to make your perfect day your reality.
Why can’t I do the planning myself?
You can definitely do the planning yourself, but it can be a hassle and very stressful. Planning a wedding takes a lot of your time, you have to source out different vendors, do the research, and on top of all that, you have a lot of details to worry about, and pulling all together can be tough. We have the training and experience to pull everything together while you sit back and relax.
How can I tell if a wedding consultant is providing a quality vendor?
The quality of vendors that we recommend to our couples has a direct effect on our reputation. It is in our best interest to provide top quality vendors that fit within your budget, after all a satisfied bride is our best marketing tool.
