As wedding planners, we take every possible opportunity we can to educate our clients and all future newlyweds. We understand that there are so many questions that come to mind when trying to hire the perfect wedding team. Below are the answers to a few of our most frequently asked questions:
We get this question all of the time! Did you know that on average it takes us around 80 hours to plan a full-service wedding? That’s 80 hours of emails, phone calls, meetings, design plans, vendor consults and communication, tastings, venue visits, timeline creation, floor plans, wedding rehearsals and wedding day coverage. Imagine just how much time and stress you’ll save by hiring us!
We will also help you strategize your budget, review contracts and pair you with your perfect vendors and venue, working together with them as a wedding dream team to make sure your wedding day is a success. We treat each wedding as if it were our own.
Wedding planners and venue coordinators are both particularly important pieces of your wedding day puzzle, however it is important to know that their responsibilities are not the same.
Your wedding planner will most likely have been working with you from day one; they will have created your timeline, worked with you to create your one-of-a-kind event design, and will know exactly what to expect from your venue and your vendors. Their job is to make sure all of those special, heartfelt details and all of your careful planning come together in a perfect fashion.
Your venue coordinator’s focus will be slightly more geared towards the venue itself; making sure that the venue is prepped and ready to go, that your vendors are set up properly, and once again that things are running smoothly to ensure that the venue is meeting all of your wedding day needs.
While they both have different duties, experienced professionals will work together as a team to make your day effortless and incredible; when it comes to weddings, two teams are always better than one!
We are firm believers in quality over quantity! Our goal is to take on no more than 15 weddings a year, per planner. We also promise make your wedding our priority by only taking one wedding per weekend so we can fully invest our focus on you.
Through experience and education we have learned the importance of pairing up with our ideal clients; because the wedding planning journey requires frequent meetings and communication, mutual compatibility is key.
We are always excited to team up with clients that are fun loving whimsy-hunters and are inspired by our romantic, creative, colorful and floral-filled wedding designs.
As our company has grown, we have found that the majority of our clients are seeking our full-service packages, as they also include our comprehensive design services.
We also offer partial-service wedding coordination, as well as a six-week wedding management package to meet every client’s individual needs.
This question is tricky! Every wedding we plan is uniquely different; the budget for an elegant 10 person elopement will not match the budget for a 150 person garden wedding. Another one of our duties is to set clear expectations for all of our clients on just how much local wedding costs are. While we do not have a minimum budget requirement for our wedding clientele, our average client’s budget for a 150-guest wedding generally falls within the range of $45,000 – $65,000.
Yes! We are huge travel fans and will go wherever the wedding wind may take us. Travel expenses vary depending on which incredible location we go to. About one-third of our wedding clients live out of state, and we enjoy making their destination wedding planning easy and fun.
Happily! We adore beautiful and elegant elopements. Have you been dreaming of an intimate but romantic elopement, perhaps in the woodlands, lakeside in the mountains, or even at a private residence? We are the perfect planners for you!
Absolutely. At L&L Events, we believe that love is love. We also pride ourselves on working with wedding vendors who share these same ideals.
