there’s no doubt that booking wedding vendors is a big part of planning your wedding and can be a serious search that results in some stress for brides and grooms. On top of it all, you have to make sure you find the RIGHT vendor who fits your style, personality and can meet your vision for your wedding day. I understand that I am not the wedding planner for everyone, and that is totally okay! I would much more prefer you book the best fit for you than book someone you may not feel as comfortable with. That being said, my goal when I meet couples for the first time is to assure them that I am there for them to make wedding day easier and the planning process more fun, and that is sometimes achieved by giving them a better picture of what my packages include. So with that, read on if you would like to know which one of my packages best fits your needs!
The Tiny Tier
The Tiny Tier package is my smallest and newest package! This package falls under the description of “day-of coordination” though unlike my other packages, it includes a certain amount of hours for your wedding day. With this package, you would have a wedding planner there close to your ceremony time to assist with running the ceremony and also assist with the main events of your reception. Main events of your reception include everything from the beginning of your cocktail hour, to the start of an open dance floor. If you don’t need a planner to set up your decor or assure your belongings get to the right place at the end of the night, this tier is definitely the tier for you!
The Tier I package was my original “day-of coordination” package and includes quite a bit more than The Tiny Tier package. With this one, you’ll get a planner for unlimited hours on your wedding day, as well as set-up of your ceremony and/or reception site, and someone to assure all items of yours (gifts, rentals, decor, etc.) gets in the right place once your wedding day has ended and you’re headed off with your new spouse. The planner will also contact your vendors the week of your wedding to make sure they know their arrival time and destination. If you would like someone there to assure your whole day run smoothly but don’t need help throughout your planning process, I think you’d really like my Tier I package!
This package was originally called “Month-of Coordination”, though I changed the name because I believe that name can be somewhat misleading. My Tier II package is a cross between the Tier I package, and my most inclusive package. With the Tier II package, you get meetings, which can be used for a venue walk through, vendor meetings, planning meetings, or whatever you like. You also get a little more help planning your wedding than you would with the Tier I package with vendor referrals (some of which offer discounts for EE&P brides), as well as a planner to help build your timeline and help decide the best flow for your wedding day. If you would like a little guidance throughout the planning process, this package would be a perfect fit!
Last but not least, my final and most inclusive package. This package comes with everything to help you throughout your planning process including several meetings, design help for your wedding day, vendor referrals, assistance choosing wedding favors, assistance managing budget and a lot more! There are a few ways to go about utilizing the Tier III package, one of which allows the planner to book and design your wedding day with your approval throughout the process, or just utilizing the planner throughout the planning process to assure your are getting it all planned and pretty. What I do with most of my full service couples is meet with them multiple times throughout the planning process to discuss timeline of items that need to be done, as well as discuss designs, style and vendor picks. That way you stay on task and on time throughout the planning process, and this also gives me a better idea of how I can better serve you. I offer unlimited email correspondence with all of my packages, but this truly comes in handy with full service couples, as I will check in with you more often. I know planning can be overwhelming, and if you feel stressed thinking about all that needs to be done and would like a helpful hand along the way, this package is a good fit!
this post has given you some info that’ll help you decipher what you need in a wedding planner, and which one of my packages would be best for you. Feel free to contact me if you would like even more detail on them or if you would like to set up a meeting to talk about your day and how I can best serve you. I love meeting at local KC coffee shops and talking weddings!
