We’re working with Laura Atendido of Laura & Co Events.

We have her for full planning and are paying $7,345.  We only met with one other person and felt Laura was best suited for our needs.  Though I’ve never seen the show, I believe she used to be the resident planner on Rich Bride, Poor Bride.  She knows what she’s doing and she’s good at it and we’d seriously be lost without her!

When looking for a planner, it’s a good idea to ask if they’re certified with the WPIC.

Also, this helped me out alot…

I’m working with Laura Scott of Tula Events for Day of Coordination. She owns the company, very professional. She checks in with me every month which makes me feel secure in my investment. She had a full porfolio for me to take home from our first meeting with all pertinant info and contracts enclosed. She had copies of her certificates and insurance to show me on the first meeting. Plus she has some really cute decor items for rent. We’re payiing just under $2,000 for day of coordination, plus some rental items. 

** Most day of coordinators leave around 11 pm (or when dancing starts) which was a problem for us because we didnt want to be stuck cleaning anything up that the venue wasn’t responsbile for. Our planner will put away/tidy anything we want before she leaves which was a huge relief.

I did meet with a Intermediate Planner from Rebecca Chan Weddings, and to be honest I just wasn’t that impressed. Rebecca herself does great work, but I didn’t want to pay for full service planning (hence the intermediate planner for Day of Coordination).  The planner I met was nice, but I didn’t feel the same way about the meeting as I did with Laura Scott.

 

You should ask:

1) Are they certified and insured

2) How many weddings they’ve planned or how long have they been in the business

3) Describe a wedding day obstacle that arose and how they were able to solve it

4) Exactly what the package entails (how many meetings, rehearsal, venue walk through)

5) Wedding planners can also give you suggestions of other vendors they like/dislike/have worked with which can be helpful 

6) What are her/his hours on the day of the wedding (when does he/she typically leave a reception)
