Why should you hire a wedding planner?
Event planners have multiple purposes and functions. When your Aunt Sally says she can make your wedding cake and your mother wants to make all of your floral arrangements, an event planner works to help you decide the best course of action. With all of the time and money that goes into planning a wedding, hiring a planner is the best route to get you organized to make your day flawless and stress-free. Events Beyond is with you every step of the way to allow you and your guests to sit back and enjoy the day. We take care of all the tedious details that go into planning your special day. We also work with you to manage your wedding budget and develop a timeline for a seamless ceremony and reception.
Do you offer same-day coordination?
We do not offer same-day coordination. Instead, we provide month-of-service coordination to ensure Events Beyond as enough time to understand your needs and expectations for your special day. It also gives us time to confirm all wedding vendor bookings, review all vendor contracts and ensure vendors are aligned to execute your wedding properly. This also allows us to make any necessary changes well in advance. Typically, we start this service 6-8 weeks before your big day.
Do you find vendors for clients or do we need to find our own?
We can help you as little or as much as you desire. We have a list of preferred vendors for our clients that we frequently work with that have proven records of reliability and perfection. Upon signing your contract, you will receive a list of preferred vendors that fit your budget. However, should clients choose their own vendors, Events Beyond will impose some restrictions to both protect our reputation and ensure that your wedding day is free of glitches.
Do you plan destination weddings?
Yes! However, travel fees are not included in our initial pricing. Once the couple arranges a consultation and chooses Events Beyond for their special day, we will prepare a proposal that fits your vision.
Do you offer customized or set packages?
We offer both traditional and custom packages and services. Events Beyond will personalize every event to reflect the couple's personalities and vision.
Do you require a deposit and if so, how much?
Yes, we collect a deposit upon signing the contract. We also have specific phases during the planning process. The Design package is due in-full prior to starting the event planning process. The payment structure will be clearly outlined in the contract. Full payment, travel and parking fees will be due before the wedding day.
How many members of staff do you bring on the day of the wedding?
This depends on the size, budget and type of wedding. This will all be discussed and finalized during the consultation and outlined in the proposal.
Do you recommend purchasing wedding insurance?
Yes, yes and yes again! I urge you to not leave your wedding day in the hands of weather, accidents, deaths or any other unforeseen incidents. Purchasing insurance will save you both stress and money should something unexpected arise on your special day.
Will you be part of vendor meetings and food tastings?
Yes! We are happy to meet vendors with you and review and negotiate contracts. It is a great way for the planner to help and advise you on your budget, style and theme. Please note that meetings exceeding the number outlined in your package and contract will be an additional cost.
Do you plan engagement parties, showers, bachelorettes, rehearsal dinners, after parties and morning brunches?
Absolutely! We offer a discount to clients if they book several events at one time.
