Frequently asked questions
Do we really need a wedding planner?
That’s entirely up to you. Anyone can plan a wedding, but do you have the time to do the research, compare pricing, and attend to all the little details that make your wedding unique? When you hire us you’re hiring an experienced team that knows weddings, knows the industry, and will take care of making sure that your day is everything you’ve dreamed of.
Okay, but what if my best friend is going to handle the details the day-of?
I mean, again, you could do that, but wouldn’t you rather them spend the day with you enjoying it and making memories rather than trying to wrangle the buzzed wedding party?
What’s the difference between a Venue Coordinator and a Wedding Planner?
I'm glad you asked! This one is one of our most asked questions. Simply put, the Venue Coordinator is responsible for all things related to your catering and physical site details, but nothing outside of that. A Wedding Planner takes care of coordinating all your other vendors, the overall timeline, your morning “getting ready” schedule, running interference from your crazy uncle and more. In other words, all things wedding.

blog post on this topic where we break it down further.
Do you offer Day-Of Coordination?
We do, but we call it Event Management because it is so much more than the day of your wedding. Starting around three months before your wedding we will begin to meet to start the process of catching us up to speed and determining what still needs to be done. Then, we will work out an individualized timeline for each vendor, lead your wedding party through the ceremony rehearsal, and then the day of the wedding itself.
How can I determine which package I need?
We outline our general “packages” on our website under services, but after we talk and agree that we’re on the same wavelength we will create a custom proposal that addresses your individual needs and where you are in the planning process. Don’t worry, we’ve got you!
Do you charge for an initial consultation?
Of course not. We use the initial consultation (or phone call if you prefer) to chat and see if we’re a good fit for one another. We love to chat about weddings so don’t hesitate to call us!
Will I lose control of my wedding if I hire a Wedding Planner?
Listen, this wedding is about you, not us, so absolutely not. We like to think that we take your great ideas and make them come to life so you can relax and enjoy marrying the love of your life surrounded by your friends and family.
What if I’ve done most of the planning? Can you still help me?
Sure! That’s essentially what our Event Management package entails. We take your vision and carry it over the one yard line to make sure that your day goes exactly the way you planned.
Where do you plan events? Do you travel?
We are located in the greater Philadelphia area but we’re up for anything!
Do you work with LGBTQ+ couples?
We think it’s ridiculous that we even need to say this but yes, love is love, and we work with all couples from all walks of life!
Do you plan other kinds of events?
We’ve spent years on the venue side planning not only weddings but rehearsal dinners, brunches, corporate retreats, showers, you name it.
We love it. What do we do now?
Great! Head over to our contact page and drop us a line. We can’t wait to hear about your wedding!
