Frequenty Asked Questions
As a wedding planning and design company we get some questions more than the others. Here’s a few questions our wedding planner Sharon Barwick comes across most often.
What is a wedding planner?
A wedding planner is a professional event planner who specializes in weddings. They coordinate and consult with the couple in selecting the venue and complete design of the wedding. Wedding planner is not a decorator nor a florist. BUT Simply Elegant can offer all of these services under one roof.
How much will my wedding planning cost?
Planning is offered on an as needed basis. You can choose to use consulting services at an hourly fee; hire a wedding planner for the day of the wedding or use full planning services to take the stress away and plan the whole wedding from start to finish.
Out of town services include a travel fee and a per diem for meals and lodging. View our wedding planning packages.
Do I need a wedding planner?
A wedding planner offers advice and insight on “what a client doesn’t know that they don’t know!” Most weddings can take up to 250 hours to plan. Book your wedding planner first as they can help you save time and often money with vendors and in negotiations.
Is contract with a wedding planner necessary?
Contracts protect you and your vendors. Your wedding planner may help you assess vendor contracts as they are a legal document you are agreeing to for your wedding services including payment schedules.
How can I save money while working with a wedding planner?
A wedding planner saves you time and may negotiate rates on your behalf. They know the preferred venues that will be the perfect fit for your wedding. As venues get booked a year in advance, this should be the first consideration.
Next your wedding planner can assist with sourcing and booking the caterer and the church or wedding commissioner. Once these main suppliers are contracted, then they move forward with other suppliers such as the photographer, florist, decorator, entertainment, printer, etc. and can manage each of these vendors.
