Answers to Brides Most Frequently Asked Questions


Here we are....Day 6, our final day of answering your most frequently asked questions here are answers to questions 9 and 10!


Question 9: When Do We Mail the Invitations.   Traditionally speaking, wedding invitations should be mailed out 6-8 weeks before the wedding. If you get anxious and mail them 10-12 weeks prior to the wedding, you might be taking a chance with your guests seeing they have plenty of time to respond and put the invitation down with intentions of RSVPing later and then they forget. Only with destination weddings should you mail your invitations 3 months out. Make sure your RSVP date is one month prior to the wedding, allowing you time to call folks who haven't rsvp'd.

Part 2: Do We Need to Note the Dress Code on the Invitations? In many cases your invitation style will depict to your guests how formal your ceremony will be. A beach wedding invitation is going to have a much different style than a more formal, traditional invitation. However, if you are wanting a particular dress code such as black tie, black tie optional or cocktail attire, then you will want to note that on the invitation.

Question 10: What Do You Do As A Planner?
We can assist you in planning in several ways, including wedding rehearsal/ wedding day coordination, partial planning to full service planning from engagement to wedding day. We provide budget breakdowns, monthly planning timelines, wedding day timelines, assistance with vendor recommendations,  setting up appointments, attending appointments, assistance with design, etiquette issue advice,  contract reviews, and all the logistics with wedding day coordination.  There still is the pre-conceived ideas that planners take over the planning and this isn't the case at all. We assist you, making sure that your ideas and vision come to fruition by helping you find a team of professionals who are a good fit for you.  For couples who don't have the time to plan their own wedding, we do the leg work for you but you ultimately are the ones who decide what contracts you want to sign. 



We would LOVE the opportunity to work with you whether it be wedding coordination or assisting you with planning the wedding of your dreams!

Your Wedding “Thank You” Notes Should Be Written to Perfection

So many guests, friends and family alike, have gathered from near and far to celebrate your big day with you! You have all enjoyed a great meal, delicious cake and then you jetted off onto your honeymoon. After returning, you have unpacked your suitcases, and opened all of your lovely gifts, so now it is time to sit down and write the perfect “thank you” notes.

Does a "Day-Of Coordinator" only show up on the wedding day?

"I've done all my own planning and want a "day-of" coordinator but can't find one who will show up on the wedding day only!  Why?"

There's probably a lot of confusion amongst engaged couples because of the term "day-of" coordinator. If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them!

Many wedding planners may label their coordination as "day-of" wedding coordination, but there is far more involved than just showing up on the wedding day when it comes to a professional wedding planner who knows what she/he is doing.

Here are some reasons why a wedding coordinator shouldn't show up only on the wedding day:
Many planners begin their coordination services 4-8 weeks out because many venues request the wedding day timeline one month prior. A 1 1/2 to 2 hour timeline meeting typically kicks off the coordination…
