ASK US ANYTHING
Why do men stand on the right at the procession?
Come to think of it, what is a procession?
Does the fork go on the right or the left of the plate?
Why do skunks have a white stripe?
You laugh but no question is too weird or too crazy for VWE!
IS THIS AN IMPORTANT QUESTION?
Yes, my friends you NEED a wedding planner, you DESERVE a wedding planner, and you should have a wedding planner. The truth is NOT having a planner can actually cost you more in vendor mishaps and costly mistakes that could have been avoided had you had a professional representing you. Think of your planner as your lawyer, consultant, advocate, personal assistant, designer, therapist and very often best friend. You can’t beat this value.
I want a planner but I don’t think I can afford one, what do I do?
The truth is you can’t afford NOT to have a planner. Most couples would be surprised at how affordable having a planner is. Additionally, what most couples fail to realize is that planners have special relationships with vendors due to doing repeat business with them and can often save you between 10% to 30% on needed products and services. This alone will offset the cost of the planner rendering their service nearly free.
I really want to experience planning my own wedding will a planner interfere with that?
Absolutely NOT! Your planner is here to execute your vision and assist YOU with planning your special day! We will guide you and prevent you from making costly mistakes (because let’s face it, how many weddings have you ever planned?) but it is your style, your design and your vision that we are here to bring to life. At the end of the day the right planner will be involved as much or as little as you like. You set the tone.
Wedding Coordinator vs Wedding Planner-What’s the difference?
While both terms are often used interchangeably, there is in fact a difference. A wedding planner will be both your coordinator and your planner. They will work with you from the very beginning and take you through the wedding process from A TO Z. Whereas a wedding coordinator will usually only coordinate the big day that you and your friends and family have planned. Hence, if you could not hire a planner from day 1 to help you plan, then the next best thing is to get a coordinator to “coordinate” the big day to make sure it all goes smoothly!
Should I tip my wedding planner/other vendors
Only if you want to! But YES, if you can. For most of us vendors, we work 12-15 hours on your big day. Working a wedding is physically strenuous work, where we stand on our feet and cross your venue at least 50 times that day. Much in the same way that you would tip a waiter for good service at a restaurant, your wedding team are all on their feet that entire day and would appreciate a small tip if you are satisfied with their service at the end of the night. Ultimately, it is up to you however, is never expected only really appreciated.
There is no remedy for love but to love more
