I have run into lots of people who already have a planner and after talking to them there are things they never even knew to talk to the planner about and the planner isn't bringing it up because it's not a part of their "package" you contracted with them.
Lots of companies offer "Day of Coordination" packages and often brides/clients try to save money by paying for that instead of what they really need which is full coordination for the day of the event because they already put the bulk of the budget in the venue/catering, etc.,
You need to ask yourself, "Does this package /agreement really cover all that I need managed for my event to be a total success? "
A seasoned Event/Wedding Manager will not only show you what they will do for you, but they will also show you what you never even considered as potential risks that could overshadow the beauty of your event.
So before contracting with a Day of EventCoordinator ", look through their contract in detailand ask them some of these questions :
- Do you break down the decorafter my wedding/event?
- How do you handle the logistics of pickup so you can setup personal event items relating to the event (i.e. guest books, favors, decor, floral )
-Do you setup decor for my event or are you just coordinating the schedule and event management?
if the agreement isn't covering all that you need, you may seriously need to consider getting full coordination, otherwise you will pay monetarily and with unnecessary stress to yourself, family, colleagues and friends. Allow yourself peace of mind so you and everyone else can enjoy themselves....
We would love to help you plan the event to meet your specific needs.
