FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator?
A wedding planner is involved from day one with all aspects of your wedding plan. They will suggest and help book your vendors/venue, go over your contracts, create a wedding budget, make a checklist to follow throughout your planning, help you design your wedding theme, and ultimately be the point person between you and your wedding vendors/venues the entire time leading up to your wedding.
A wedding coordinator (THAT'S ME!) is not involved in the wedding planning process at all. The bride is responsi«le for planning their entire wedding (a true DIY bride) and si»ply will hand the reigns over to the wedding coordinator in the last 30 days so that the coordinator can get to know all the meticulous details/desires of the bride, connect with the vendors/venue, help create a day of wedding timeline/plan, be present at rehearsal, and execute the bride's plan/wishes on wedding day. Visit my blog "I Don't Need a Wedding Coordinator. My Friend Sally Can Do It" for 6 reasons to consider hiring a wedding coordinator for your wedding.
Do you have any travel fees or restrictions?
Yes. I will travel up to a 30 mile radius of Asheville proper for the rehearsal and wedding day at no charge. If the distance is greater than 30 miles from Asheville proper a $75 fee will be applied with ~1 hour (one-way) from Asheville being the max distance I am willing to travel. Overnight accommodations may also be brought up in conversation if the rehearsal is late followed by an early morning wedding.
In regard to elopements, my travel fee is still $75 after 45 minutes of driving in one direction with ~1 hour being my max distance from Asheville proper.
How many hours will you be at my wedding day?
Up to 10 hours on your wedding day (not including elopements/microweddings)
Will you have an assistant coordinator with you on wedding day?
If the wedding has more than 150 guests an assistant will be present to help ensure that your wedding day runs smoothly.
When is the best time to book your services?
I will accept bookings within one year of the date of your event. It is best to book with me as soon as possible in order to ensure that I am available on your wedding date.
How do I book my wedding date?
Go to my "Contact" page and fill out a brief survey providing me with the basic information of your wedding. I will respond within 24 hours to let you know if your wedding date is available and set up a time to meet/talk over the phone in order to see if we are a good fit together. If you decide to choose me then your date will be officially booked once I receive your signed contract and deposit.
If I cancel my event can I get my deposit back?
Unfortunately once your deposit is received your date is officially booked and therefore it becomes unavailable to other clients. It then becomes a possibility that I may not be able to re-book that date, so your deposit covers any initial expenses that would otherwise go uncovered.
Once my deposit is made when is my final balance due?
Remaining balances for non-elopement packages are due 30 days prior to your event date. If you are eloping the remaining balance is due 90 days prior to your event.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, Check (made payable to The Hunt is Over), Venmo, or Zelle
