We met with hundreds of couples at the Chico Bridal Show.  We wanted to hear from couples what their one question was in their stage of planning.  Read on to see what our top questions were:

We haven't set a date, how do we start planning?

There were lots of couples who just got engaged on Christmas, so congrats! First off if you don't already have a date that is significant to you we recommend giving yourself time to take it in and not jumping into selecting a venue until you have thought about your must haves. Then after you have found a venue that meets that criteria, check their pricing, amenities and availability. Choose an ideal date from their list of open dates.

Our venue has a coordinator included, would we still need a wedding planner? 

A venue coordinator will be an excellent resource for any venue related questions, and overall logistics of their staff such as what time the chairs will be set out what time the first course is served etc.  They won't however attend vendor appointments with you, or assist with contracts of outside companies or work with you to create your overall design concept of your wedding.  No matter where we come in (Full Service, to Day of) we are looking at the big picture.

How do we choose a wedding venue?

Choose a venue that provides your must-haves which are different for everyone.  The more amenities included (tables, chairs) the more your budget will thank you!

What will a wedding planner do for us?

Every couple's needs are different, for those who are busy working or going to school they simply do not have the time do manage vendor communication, research venues, create a timeline, secure contracts, and more.  We can be your wedding wing-women or we can chauffeur you through the planning process. From design concept, attending fittings, vendor selection, managing your save the dates/invitation/rsvp's to full set up and break down it can be done.  Check out our services page for a little more information on how best we could assist you.
