+ Do you offer "day-of" coordination?
With 7 years experience in coordinating and planning weddings, we have learned that the description "day-of" doesn't represent the type of service we actually provide, as well as what you really need on your wedding day. Do you think all those months of planning your wedding someone could showcase and execute all your hard work in just one day? That is why we created a happy medium and offer our wedding management package.
Instead of adding more stress on your plate, we eliminate that and in return we get to learn more about you and what is really important on your wedding day. So if you are looking for a "day-of" wedding coordinator, our wedding management service is that plus more and starts 6 weeks before your event.
+ I am not sure if I need a coordinator or planner, what is the difference?
This is a great question and you are already on the right path considering one of these options for your wedding. A planner is there to guide the couple along in the the process, from putting together the best vendor team, to creating a schedule of events and design guide. A coordinator could also be hired on in the beginning stage of your wedding planning but consistent communciation will not start till the last phase of the process. Usually 1 to 3 months before the wedding, to tie any loose ends and make sure there are no red flags that may have been overseen.
A planner is involved in the big picture, as well as the little details of the wedding, all the way to producing the event. A coordinator is there at the last steps of the wedding process, only to excute what has already been planned by the couple. Our biggest wedding tip is, if your venue is an empty canvas, meaning you will have to hire all your own vendors from rentals, staffing, etc bringing a planner on board will make a huge difference in your overall experience. We understand though that budgets sometimes don't leave much wiggle room for a planner, but make sure not to skimp on hiring a coordinator, you will thank us later.
+ My venue comes with an onsite wedding manager, do I still need a hire a coordinator?
The answer is definitely yes, most onsite wedding managers are only in charge of managing the property (ex: a/c, in house lighting, bathrooms etc.) but are not involved with setting up decor, coordinating hired vendors, or handling schedule of events. So make sure you and your venue are on the same page on what the onsite manager is responsible for. We suggest double checking your contract, most established venues will likely require you to hire a professional coordinator.
+ What other locations has your team planned weddings at?
We have coordinated and planned weddings at most venues in Los Angeles. But also have planned weddings in Palm Springs, Austin and are always exploring new spaces. Some of our dream locations are Santa Barbara, Ojai, Tulum, Baja California Sur, and Hawaii, so lets create magic there together.
