How many meetings will we have? How often will we communicate?
The answer is as many as you would like. Every client begins with a Kick-Off meeting to set the standard and get all the housekeeping details out of the way. After that, it is up to you! LTJ does suggest meeting monthly once you are 6 months out from your event.
We communicate through a multitude of methods: email, phone call, test, Zoom, and more!
Do you plan other wedding events like pre-wedding activities, rehearsal dinners, bridal luncheons, etc.?
Yep! LTJ can plan the entire weekend's events. Fees will depend on the scope of the project and if you are looking for planning/execution or just consultation for ideas.
What is the difference between a planner, coordinator, and designer?
Planner - professional who plans the event alongside the client, coordinated the vendor team, assists in selecting vendors, helps with the overall wedding design, assists in managing the budget, coordinates the timeline, and everything the day (or weekend) of the event.
Coordinator - typically just coordinates the logistics of the event day. Most people call this day of coordinators. Coordinators are not typically involved with the planning process.
Designer - designers typically focus on the design of the event. Most provide in-house floral, décor, and rentals.
The venue already has a coordinator. Why should I still hire my own?
The venue coordinator has one job to do. Make sure the venue is in safe hands during the event and run logistics with the in-house staff. What you cannot expect the venue coordinator to do: plan your event, design the floorplan, create a custom timeline, provide guidance throughout the planning process, attend vendor appointments and negotiate contracts, manage vendors, pack your car at the end of the night, etc.
