  • Is your business insured?
    Yes! I maintain General and Professional Liability Insurance.
  • Are you a certified wedding planner?
    Yes! I have received my Wedding Planner Certification from the Certified Wedding Planner Society.
  • Do you offer Day of Coordination?
    Yes, we offer a Month of Coordination package, which is similar to Day of Coordination but more comprehensive. We start working with you about 6-8 weeks before your event and provide monthly check-ins to assist you throughout the entire planning process, not just the month of the event. This package ensures that every detail is in place for your special day.
  • What’s the difference between you and a venue coordinator?
    While your venue coordinator is focused on overseeing the set-up, food and beverage, and logistics specific to the venue itself, a wedding or event planner takes a more comprehensive approach. A planner will coordinate and manage all logistics for your entire event, ensuring that every detail is considered and executed flawlessly. By hiring a planner, you can make your event stress-free and enjoyable, as they simplify things for both vendors and the venue coordinator. Planners work hand in hand with venue coordinators to ensure that every aspect of your event is seamlessly coordinated, allowing you to relax and enjoy your special day.
  • What qualities do you possess that make you a good planner?
    I pride myself on my meticulous attention to detail, a trait that is deeply ingrained in my approach to both personal and professional endeavors. My commitment to excellence is reflected in my adherence to SMART goals—setting specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound objectives to ensure optimal outcomes. Punctuality is a cornerstone of my work ethic, as I consistently prioritize being early to appointments to demonstrate respect for others' time and to facilitate smooth, efficient operations. Additionally, I am known for my innovative, 'outside-the-box' thinking, which allows me to approach challenges from unique angles and devise creative solutions.
  • Am I required to only work with your approved vendors? Or do I have the freedom to hire someone else even if you haven't worked with them before?
    I am receptive to collaborating with new vendors, even those with whom I have not previously worked. However, I maintain a strict policy that all vendors must be licensed and insured professionals to ensure the highest quality of service and protection for all parties involved. While the client has the ultimate decision-making authority, I do require that vendors receive my approval before being booked for an event.
  • Can we contact our chosen vendors ourselves?
    It is my preference to serve as the single point of contact for all vendors involved in your event to minimize any potential hiccups or confusion throughout the planning process. This includes instances where a vendor may be a personal friend; I require all vendors to provide their contact information to me directly. This approach ensures that your event needs are effectively communicated and coordinated, guaranteeing a successful event day. For clients engaging my services for month-of coordination, the single point of contact arrangement will commence approximately 6-8 weeks prior to the event, coinciding with the start of our services.
  • Can we contact you outside the planning meetings?
    Yes, you are welcome to email me at any stage of the planning process. Please be aware that certain inquiries may require additional time for research. Upon receiving your email, I will acknowledge its receipt and begin the necessary research. For all other correspondence, I aim to respond within 24-48 business hours. Email is the preferred method of contact, as it provides a written record for future reference.
  • Where can I learn more about you?
    You can follow us on Instagram at @beckyseventcoordinating or visit our Facebook page, Becky's Event Coordinating, for updates and insights. Additionally, you can learn more about me in the 'About Me' section of my website.
