Why Choose a Wedding Coordinator:
In the intricate tapestry of wedding planning, I offer a guiding hand, saving you from the 250-hour average planning endeavor. Beyond time-saving, a coordinator prioritizes vendors, streamlines budgets, provides qualified referrals, attends vendor meetings, reviews contracts, negotiates on your behalf, and sparks creative decor and design ideas. As your wedding approaches, I confirm vendors, create timelines, run rehearsals, ensuring a stress-free day for you, your family, and friends.
Based in the mesmerizing St. Petersburg, including Sarasota and Tampa Bay, and the enchanting Nashville, Tennessee, we also extend our magic virtually and to destination weddings. Share your dreams, and let’s embark on planning your ultimate wedding.
Why do I need NCE if I have a venue Catering Manager?
Catering Managers primarily handle venue-related details, and their responsibilities may not extend to coordinating vendors, running rehearsals, or overseeing the entire wedding day. Our professional Wedding Coordinators complement their services, ensuring a seamless and well-coordinated event beyond the venue’s scope.
How can I determine which coordination package is right for me?
Worry not! We’re here to assist. Through a complimentary consultation, we delve into your wedding details, discussing your needs and answering any coordination-related questions. Based on your requirements, we’ll recommend a suitable package or customize one tailored to your unique needs.
Can you help make my wedding special, unique, and memorable?
Absolutely! Crafting extraordinary and personalized weddings is our passion. By staying updated on industry trends, we offer creative and unique ideas that align with your personality, likes, and desires. Let’s collaborate to make your wedding an unforgettable celebration.
How do you choose vendors for your clients?
Our vendor recommendations are tailor-made for each client, considering their style, personality, and budget. After understanding your preferences and wedding vision, we provide vendor referrals that are uniquely suited to you.
Will I lose control of my wedding after hiring a coordinator?
No way! Your wedding remains YOUR event, and we’re here to guide you, not take over. We offer as much or as little assistance as you desire, ensuring you maintain control throughout the planning process.
Will you be bossing around the wedding party / vendors?
Absolutely not. We believe in collaborative teamwork among vendors, with a shared goal: the success of your wedding. Our approach with the wedding party is supportive and guiding, fostering a stress-free and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
Do you have liability insurance?
Certainly, we are fully insured, providing an additional layer of security for your peace of mind.
