Have questions about our policies or about wedding planning in general? If we haven't answered your questions below, please send us an email or give us a call! We'd love to hear from you!
What is your payment structure?
In order to secure our services and reserve your date on our calendar, we require a signed contract and 50% of the payment upfront. The remaining 50% is due no later than 30 days before the wedding. We accept cash, check, and major credit cards. Paying with a credit card will incur a 4% additional fee.
What is the difference between a wedding coordinator and a wedding planner?
These terms are often used interchangeably, but the difference is really in the person's function. A wedding planner helps plan the wedding: helps find venues, vendors, makes contributions to the styles, themes, helps select color schemes, etc. A planner will help keep track of the budget and help you make the hundreds of small decisions needed.
A wedding coordinator usually does not help plan the wedding. She is at the wedding venue on the day of the wedding and makes sure everything is falling into place: the vendors arrive when scheduled, everything is set up like the bride wants, makes sure everyone is where they need to be when they need to be there, and handles any questions or problems that pop up with the venue, vendors, or bridal party.
At All You Need, we offer both services! If you want to do all your own planning and just have us come in on the day of your wedding so you don't have to stress, we'd love to do that! See our Signature package. We are also one of the few companies that provides two people on your big day.
If you'd like to do the planning but want a little help narrowing down which vendors to use or some help deciding on colors or themes, but want to take it from there, see our Signature+ package! You still get our coordinator services on the day of your wedding!
For the full service package, where we help you plan every aspect of your wedding, you need the Premier package. Yes, it still includes our coordinator services on your wedding day!
I'm only having a small wedding, do I need a wedding planner?
We work on weddings of all sizes. Small, intimate ceremonies are wonderful. But even small ceremonies still have many moving parts to them and can be just as stressful to plan as large ones.
Even if you don't need our help with the planning, having a coordinator there on the day of the wedding is the greatest pampering you can give yourself. You can relax while getting your hair and nails done, visiting with family and friends, and concentrating on celebrating with the love of your life because you know that we are there making sure everything is in place exactly like you want it.
It's only a few weeks until my wedding, can I still hire you?
Of course! Maybe you thought you didn't need a coordinator, but as your wedding day looms, you realize that having someone else take care of everything that needs to be done on the wedding day will allow you to enjoy it. This is one of the most important days of your life and you've earned it!
