I have 3-5 exploratory or complimentary Consultations a week. While I love chatting with potential couples, not everyone needs, wants or can afford a planner. Most couples schedule time to chat, have their questions answered and learn the lay of the land. It’s easy to become overwhelmed when you start wedding planning and that is why Consultation calls are so vital!
It’s simple… you don’t know what you don’t know. I have so many consultations where at least one person says, “Oh! I didn’t think of that!” Take advantage of the consultations and soak up all that free knowledge!
There will always be different questions based on the couple and their event but these, I think are the basics and help me customize any type of package.
Most planners offer the standard three packages.
This is the creme de la creme. This is the most you can get and usually $8,000.00-$15,000.00+ depending on the planner, guest count and location/s. With this package you are handheld through the entire planning and design process. You receive proposals, invoices and contracts from their rolodex of vetted vendors. You’re gaining a “wedding bestie” there to answer all of your questions, guide you through the entire wedding process, attend meetings with you and much more.
This offering is more focused and customized towards either planning or design. This package is dependent on where the couple is in the planning process. By picking this package you should already have your venue, catering and beverage booked. You and your planner can now focus on booking the interior vendors, the details, timeline and of course….Design!
Partial Wedding Planning is a lot of phone calls, mood board, style guides, pdfs and recaps. A lot of planners will offer a consolidated planning and/or design package but still offer the full day of production.
Partial Planning with Design and Day of Production ranges from $3,000.00-$7000.00 and again is based on your specific needs, guest count/date and planner.
If you meet a planner who offers just straight Day of Production…RUN! That shouldn’t exist.
Month of assistance is just that, someone there to get those final things in order for you. This is a custom service that should be created based on your specific needs.
Expect your planner or producer to do a total recap of your entire wedding: vendors, venues, design, contracts and invoices. This helps them get up to speed, introduce themselves to your vendors and ensure nothing has been forgotten.
Overall, Month of Assistance main job is to make that month leading up to your wedding as stress free as possible.
Month of Assistance & Day of Production ranges from $2,500.00 – $5,000+ and is usually based on your guest count and date.
