1. What is a Wedding Coordinator?
A wedding coordinator is someone who specializes in day of help and management. We ensure the plans YOU have made are carried out how you envisioned. We put all the pieces you have hired and created together into the perfect day!
2. How do we know if JAL is right for us?
JAL is a great fit for those looking to have a memorable and stress-free wedding day! We want to create a connection with you and by doing this we start working together as soon as possible. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
3. Do you charge for the initial consultation?
No, our complimentary consultations are designed for us to get a better idea of what it is you’re looking for in a coordinator, the plans and ideas you have created so far and what your expectations are of us for coordinating your wedding! We want to build a connection and open communication between you and us. Let’s get that scheduled today!
4. How much communication will we have with you?
From the point of signing the contract, there is no limit on email communication with JAL. We want you to reserve your date at any point and are happy to offer suggestions and opinions at any point of you planning your wedding. We also send in monthly check-ins so that you have some direction while planning your wedding.
5. How often will we meet prior to wedding?
It depends upon the package you purchase.
6. How do you determine your fees?
Our fees are reflective of our experience in the industry as well as the quality of experience that we provide to our couples. We base the rate on the size of the wedding, if it is seated dinner or buffet, how many hours day-of are needed and how many locations we are attending.
7. My venue has an onsite coordinator. What's the benefit to also having a day-of coordinator?
JAL works exclusively for you, while an onsite coordinator works for the venue. We are working to make the wedding stress-free and fun for the couple. We not only manage vendors and set out your personal touches, but we make sure the timeline we have worked together on is met and accomplished.
8. What is the difference between a day-of wedding coordinator and a full-service wedding planner?
Full-service wedding planners often specialize in longer-term projects like managing your budget, venue site selection, creating a design aesthetic and attending all vendor meetings. The heart of our work is being your experienced partner to take you down the home stretch and execute your details. Some full-service planners do offer day-of and month-of coordination services as well, but this type of support is truly our sole focus. Because of this, we’re able to invest our time and attention in getting to know you and the wedding you’re planning. By understanding your story, we can be a guide and resource to you along the way and fulfill all your plans and event needs on the day of your wedding!
9. Will Just About Love travel to my destination wedding?
Yes, JAL would love to travel with you to your destination wedding. I had a destination wedding and know the elements and stress of planning from far away. Additional travel-related expenses may apply – contact us today to learn more about our destination wedding offerings.
