Wedding M.D. Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Wedding M.D. and The Capable Bride? Wedding M.D. provides wedding planning services that are designed to help you reduce your stress and help you enjoy your day to the fullest. The Capable Bride is there to provide tips and inspiration and to help you get started on your planning journey.
Can you tell me your prices? Our services are customized to each couple. As you can imagine, weddings are personal occasions. Not everyone needs or wants the same things. As such, we need to have a conversation to discuss the details and suggest services that are right for you.
Do I really need a wedding planner? That depends on how you define need. If you’d like for you and your guests to enjoy such an important day rather than be consumed with the details of planning an event, then yes, you do need a planner.
What does full-service planning include? It’s start-to-finish event planning. It’s all customized to what you need, but every full-service package includes customized vendor recommendations, budget tracking, site visits, vendor contract reviews, and coordination on the day of the wedding.
Do you provide “day-of” services? No, we don’t. For coordination to be effective, the coordinator must be able to manage the day. This means they need to know exactly what’s going on and have all the details you’ve been tracking for months on your own and requires pre-work that we start one-two months before your wedding.
What do you include in your coordination package? Our coordination package, which includes services leading up to the wedding day, is great for those who have completed all the planning work and are looking for professional assistance for the event. It includes confirmation with all vendors as well as the wedding rehearsal and, of course, coordination on the day of the event.
What if I already know the vendors I want to use? Can I still use a wedding planner? Absolutely! In this case, you may be better off using coordination services rather than full planning, but it depends on your specific needs, which we discuss during the initial consultation.
I’m a real take charge kind of bride. I already booked everything I need for my wedding day. Why should I hire a wedding planner? That is great news! However, have you thought about who will ensure that all your vendors are following your specifications? While you’re getting ready, who is ensuring that things are getting completed on time? Is anyone going to follow up with all the vendors and give them a schedule to follow on the day of? What about making sure that the florist is setting up the hall the way that you had laid out in your vision? There are a lot of details to handle even if all the vendors are booked, and Wedding M.D. can help you with all of these.
Does the size of my wedding matter if I want to use a wedding planner? The size will determine how much help you need but having a wedding planner is helpful no matter the size.
I procrastinated and now I’m out of time to create the wedding of my dreams, can a wedding planner truly help? Planning will definitely be needed if you’d still like to make this the wedding of your dreams! Schedule a call today so we can make dreams happen (the sooner, the better).
