Let's get Transparent!
What's included and what's not?!
Will I still have some control over my wedding if I hire your team as my planner?
Definitely! We will do as much, or as little, as you want us to do during the wedding planning process. We always ask you what you want and we then make our suggestions to you.
This all sounds so wonderful but it also seems so expensive, will we be able to afford this?
Yes! The average couple (without a wedding planner) spends over 300 hours planning their wedding. Much of that time is spent looking for vendors and then meeting with one after the other until you find the perfect one. As wedding planners we have already done the homework and have formed relationships with quality vendors. By getting to know you we can then direct you to one or two vendors that match your personality as well as your budget. This service alone will save you many hours. Plus, we are often able to find vendors or venues that couples have never even heard of. We will always pass on our vendor discounts to you. We have vendors who offer discounts on cake, photography, favors, gifts, and more.
We're getting married in Idaho but we live in another state. Can you still help us?
Yes, we actually work with quite a few couples across the country. Having a wedding planner is quite beneficial in that situation since you most likely don’t have the time to fly in often to meet with vendors, etc.
What's the difference between a Day-Of Coordinator and a Full Service Wedding Planner?
This is a very common question when starting to plan a wedding. First off, there is no such thing as only a "Day-of Coordinator". This is why our base package is called "Wedding Day Management". We simply cannot come into your event on the day-of without any work/meetings/calls prior to the wedding date (at least 30 days ideally). We will manage your day so that you can relax and enjoy those current moments, to include vendor management, creating a master timeline and being month AND day-of point of contact to ensure that the event runs smoothly.
A Full Service Wedding Planner starts with couples from the ground up to design, coordinate and execute their event - including researching vendors, scheduling consultations/meetings, reviewing contracts, developing design concepts and so much more. Hiring a Full Service Planner is for those couples who do not have the time or desire to do everything themselves. Either way, Unveiled can assist with whatever your needs may be in your planning process.
What would be additional fees that could be charged?
Depending on the package that you choose, there could be additional charges that incur. Example of these would be: Additional working hours above contracted maximum, DIY décor set-up and tear-down, Additional wedding events planning/coordination (engagement party, bridal shower, bachelor/bachelorette, rehearsal dinner, etc.), Travel/Mileage/Lodging depending on wedding location, Custom signage design and printing, to name a few. One thing we pride ourselves on is transparency. You will ALWAYS know if additional charges could be a factor when deciding which package is the best fit for you.
What forms of payment do you accept and do you have a payment plan?
We accept cash, checks, and credit card. We do require an initial down payment to hold the date. We will then work with you to create a payment schedule that will work for you.
What is the difference between a Venue Coordinator and Wedding Coordinator?
Depending on your venue, this is a GREAT question. Some venues DO provide full service, which is great for you! Utilize what you are already paying for. Other venues provide a coordinator for your day, however, they will not execute all of the tasks you may need accomplished. Their main job is to focus on having the basics of the venue ready for you (opening the doors, making sure bathrooms are stocked, etc.). Having been a venue coordinator myself, there were many times where I was only there for the first few hours of a reservation before I left to be on call for the rest of the evening. This did NOT include any décor set-up, vendor coordination (other than knowing who your vendors were), timeline management, etc. Transitioning into a wedding coordinator, all of these additional tasks became something that would be covered during your event. This question is SUPER important when discussing what your venue coordinator will and will not do for you on your wedding day.
