Frequently Asked Questions

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.  They are not a decorator nor a florist.

How much will my planning cost?

Planning is offered on an as needed basis.  You can choose to use consulting services at an hourly fee; hire planners 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.

Do I need a wedding planner?

Planners offer 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 planner first as they can help you save time and often money with vendors and in negotiations.

How can I save money?

Planners save 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 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.

Are contracts necessary?

Contracts protect you and your vendors. Planners may help you assess vendor contracts as they are a legal document you are agreeing to for your wedding services including payment schedules.

How much will my catering cost?

Depending on many factors, an average wedding can range from $50 – $75 per person depending on a few factors such as whether you add a midnight snack or candy bar.

How can I save money?

Approximately 60% of your wedding expense can be delegated to catering.  A low guest count number plus offering a buffet meal is a great start to lowering your catering expense.  Did you know Simply Elegant offers Reward Air Miles?

Are contracts necessary?

Contracts protect you and your service providers. Read all of the fine print in every vendor contract as it is a legal document and you are agreeing to for specific services they are providing plus a payment schedule.

Why do I need Insurance for catering?

Event cancellation offers protection against the unexpected beyond your control (i.e. flooding) and liquor liability protects you from lawsuits brought against individuals, organizations or companies who offer consumption of alcohol.

Do you have décor packages?

Our décor is as individual and unique as our couples in their selection on their venue choice, theme and colour scheme.  Our design studio showroom gives you the chance to view a variety of looks so that you decide on where you want to invest your décor dollars.

How can I save money?

You can do parts of the wedding yourself.  Simply Elegant provides rentals of linens, chair covers, centrepieces, backdrops, etc.  You can do all of the installation and take down yourself or hire our experienced decorators do it all or just the take down.  Did you know Simply Elegant offers Reward Air Miles?

Are contracts necessary?

Can I provide some of the décor?

Some clients want to use vases, ceremony gates and archways, antique prams, etc. in their ceremony.  Bring in your specialty décor pieces to our design studio prior to your wedding and our staff will include the décor in the whole look.

How much do wedding flowers cost?

Depending on many factors, an average bride bouquet can range from $150 to $250. Your bridesmaids bouquets can be a smaller version or choose a single stem of another flower.

My flowers are out of season?

Consider permanent botanicals for flowers that you absolutely must have but are out of season. You can mix these with fresh flowers and no one will ever know!

How can I save money on wedding flowers?

Stay away from wedding dates that are at the peak floral seasons like Christmas and Valentine’s Day when floral costs are higher.  The less number of bridesmaids in your wedding party, the less number of bouquets you will need.  Did you know Simply Elegant offers Reward Air Miles?

What flower is the cheapest?

Most flowers are flown into Calgary due to our location in Canada plus many flowers are even the more common flowers are flown in from Vancouver, California, Holland and South America. Professional florists purchase top quality flowers for your wedding as the quality reads in your photos.  Ask your floral designer what flowers are in season.
