Wedding Planning F.A.Q.
Please check out our F.A.Q. to help answer your most commonly asked questions
How much do you cost?
Great question! Because I create custom packages for each couple I work with, my pricing varies widely from just a few services to complete wedding planning coverage. To decide what pricing and package is best for you, we will meet during a complimentary consultation to discuss your wedding ideas and plans, and then work together to create a custom coordination package that fits your needs and your budget. So, although packages have a wide range based on your specific needs,
Wedding Day Management starts at $3,000 and Full Service Planning packages start at $8,000.
What is the average wedding budget you work with?
A helpful guideline for our full-service clients is to anticipate a minimum starting cost of $500 per person, so a 100 person wedding would start at around $50,000. We understand that there are many factors that go into a wedding budget (and if you're not sure how to build a budget we can help with that!) but typically most weddings that have all the bells and whistles of a fully produced event will start somewhere in that range, and industry standards suggest that wedding planners take up between 10% and 20% of your total wedding budget.
What does a Wedding Planner do?
I do whatever you need me to do! As a full service Planner I can help you find the venue of your dreams; connect you with amazing vendors that suit your specific, unique tastes; build a custom budget (and then help you stick to it!); create a year-long planning timeline that will guide you through the entire planning process; or anything else you can imagine that will help make your wedding planning process as enjoyable and stress-free as possible. Even if you just need a sounding board for professional advice or a supportive shoulder to lean on, I am here to act as your advocate and help make sure your wedding day is everything you’ve dreamed of.
I don’t even know where to begin! Can you help me?
Of course! The good news is, while you may have never planned a wedding, I have planned many, so I can help guide you through the planning process and take the mystery out of “The Wedding Industry.” I can provide you with experienced, professional advice on everything from when to send out your wedding invitations to how to choose a DJ that is right for you, and anything else you can think of. Think of me as your "right-hand woman" and your dedicated partner in the planning process.
What makes you different from other Wedding Planners?
Because I create custom packages for all of my couples, it allows me the freedom to provide you with personal, professional support tailored to your unique wedding, and your unique needs as a couple. Other Planners may only allow you to choose from pre-designed packages that don’t give you flexibility for your unique wedding, or your unique circumstances. But Forever Events recognizes that just as no two couples are alike, no two weddings are alike as well, and we want to create the most customized, personal coordination and support package we can to help you have a positive and fun planning experience.
