The best time to book is before you’ve done anything at all! We want to be a part of your big day from the second you say “YES!”. Let us provide you with valuable input on all the top trends, help you book your vendors, look after all the small details and work with you in preparing the all-important budget. Check out The Architect Package for more on this.
You can find full details of this under Weddings.
It depends on your package. Generally, with The Designer Package, your payment is due at the time of our meeting. With The Coordinator package, we’ll collect 30% up front and the remainder the day before the wedding. For The Architect Package or Tie The Two Together Package, we require a small initial payment, then work up a schedule for you which breaks your payments into monthly installments. The final payment is due the day before the wedding.
Absolutely not. Any savings that we’ve arranged are passed on directly to you. We don’t take any finders’ fees or commissions from our vendors whatsoever.
Of course! We love to work with our preferred vendors because we know they’re tried, tested and true. But if you’re partway into the process and have already signed up another vendor, we’re more than happy to work with them as well. Have your heart set on someone? We can arrange to pre-qualify them for you in order to save you the time.
We wouldn’t have it any other way. We’re members in good standing of the Wedding Planners Institute of Canada and have successfully obtained our Wedding Planners Institute of Canada Certification. We’re also members of the International Special Events Society.
We sure do. We don’t believe we’ll ever have to use it, but you can rest assured that we’ve got that part covered.
Absolutely! Sewing kit, safety pins, mirrors, tissues, breath mints…you need it, we’ve thought of it!
Of course! We offer a one hour complimentary initial consultation where we’ll meet with you in person to talk about all your questions and thoughts for your big day. We feel it’s important to meet with you to make sure we’re a good fit for each other. After all we’ll be spending the better part of a year together planning one of the most intimate days of your lives!
That all depends. If we’re starting from scratch and we’re the first stop on your planning process, well…first of all…thank you! Just bring yourselves and your great ideas and we’ll provide the rest. If you’ve already booked a few vendors, you can bring along your contracts so we’re all on the same page with what stage you’re at in the planning process.
Worry not! That’s the first thing we strive to do right from the get go. It’s SO important for us to truly understand what you want to see and make that happen. It’s such an important and central part of what we believe in – so much so we make sure all of our preferred vendors feel exactly the same way. Your wedding is a reflection of YOU and only YOU. That means your input is priceless – when you’re sharing your thoughts, we’ve got it loud and clear.
In a nutshell, we’ll talk to you about the vendors you want to visit. Once we’ve decided on the group we’re considering, your Wedding Coordinator will arrange an appointment that’s convenient for everyone. For your comfort and ease, we’ll accompany you on your appointments. We know what to ask and what to look for. In many cases, if it’s a preferred vendor, we’ve already pre-qualified them for you!
Your Wedding Day happens once and there’s no going back once the day unfolds – that’s a lot of pressure! We want your day to live up to its full potential and we think your investment in your Wedding Planner is the most important piece of putting together the biggest day of your life!
