Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer services outside of the DC area?

Absolutely! I’m willing to travel anywhere in the US and abroad. Estimated travel costs will be included in your proposal after our consultation call.

Can I hire you if we haven't booked a venue yet?

Absolutely! Actually, I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner as your very first vendor. Your venue choice has a huge impact on the rest of your wedding budget so I recommend discussing all the pros and cons with a planner before booking.

Are you licensed and insured?

Yes! I have a business license and liability insurance, which I can provide to venues as needed.

What's the difference between planning and coordination?

These terms are often used interchangeably; however, I distinguish them as:
Planning is the work done before the wedding to secure all the necessary parts such as venue, vendors, decor, attire, etc.
Coordination is the execution of those plans and making sure everything flows smoothly.
The Goal: Thorough planning meets well-executed coordination.

What's the difference between a wedding coordinator and a venue coordinator?

Typically, a venue coordinator is responsible for overseeing the set-up, food and beverage, and logistics as it relates directly to the venue. An outside wedding coordinator will coordinate and manage ALL logistics and design details with your entire wedding team. A great wedding coordinator will not only make your life easier and stress-free when it comes to your wedding day but will also streamline and simplify the jobs of the entire vendor team (including the venue coordinator!). This allows each vendor to bring their A-game to the wedding and results in a positive experience for everyone.

Do you offer day-of coordination?

Yes! My day-of coordination services are what I simply call my Coordination Package. “Day-of coordination” is a bit of a misnomer, as no good coordinator will only work day-of. There is a lot of pre-work that goes into making your day run smoothly and effortlessly.

Do you offer set-up and tear-down services?

No, I do not. I will help place décor items such as your guest book, card box, centerpieces, signs, etc., and I will light candles, but I do not set up or take down chairs, tables, linens, arches, etc. These services are typically offered by your venue, caterers, or rental company.

Do you work with non-traditional couples?

Yes! I love working with all kinds of couples wanting many different types of weddings. I will work with couples regardless of their race, religion, sexuality, or gender.

I'm planning my wedding from a distance, can you still work with me?

Absolutely! Planning a wedding from afar can be tough for couples and I’m happy to help.

What is the starting price for your packages?

My packages start at $1,500, but custom packages are available and may be cheaper for occasions like elopements.

My wedding is in 3 months, is it too late to book you?

As long as I have your date available, you can book my coordination services until 60 days out. I do not offer coordination for weddings happening less than 60 days from now.

How early do you arrive on wedding day?

As early as I’m needed! This varies for every wedding and will be decided when we begin working on your day-of timeline.
