working with a planner
WHEN DO WE MEET OUR WEDDING PLANNER? At your initial consultation after booking. Your event planner will call you within two business days after booking to schedule a phone conversation and to set up your initial consultation.
DO WE GET TO CHOOSE OUR WEDDING PLANNER? Yes! We have a number of talented event planners on staff. Select the planner that is right for you based on their bios and previous work, or ask your sales representative for assistance.
ARE WE REQUIRED TO USE ALL BELLAGALA SERVICES WHEN WE BOOK A BELLAGALA PLANNER? No, our event planning services are a separate entity from the rest of our services. Bellagala event planners are knowledgeable, highly experienced, and have worked with a variety of wedding vendors throughout the Twin Cities.
HOW MUCH EXPERIENCE DO YOUR WEDDING PLANNERS HAVE? Each of our event planners comes to Bellagala with a different level of experience, but on average, our planners have at least three to five years working in the wedding industry.
what a planner does
WILL MY PLANNER WORK ALONE OR WITH ASSISTANTS ON MY WEDDING DAY? Your planner will be the go-to point person on your wedding day, but will likely bring at least one assistant with them the day of your wedding, possibly two in order to ensure that your day unfolds flawlessly.
HOW MUCH INVOLVEMENT WILL MY PLANNER HAVE? As much or as little as you want them to have! Your planner’s level of involvement depends on the event planning package you reserve and your personal preferences. Some clients will have every detail planned out and are just looking for a planner to execute their vision, and some clients want to sit back and let their planner take care of everything for their wedding day. We work with clients at both ends of the spectrum (and anywhere in between) personalizing our service to your needs.
MY VENUE ALREADY HAS AN IN-HOUSE WEDDING COORDINATOR. WHY DO I NEED A PLANNER? Your venue coordinator most likely has many clients and many upcoming events she is juggling simultaneously, possibly several per month. Most onsite venue coordinators are just too busy to devote the time and attention necessary to attend to the details of your wedding. The bottom line: A wedding coordinator at a venue and a wedding planner are two completely different jobs. The venue wedding coordinator is there to serve the venue. A planner is completely focused on you and dedicated to your wedding vision, and she is there solely to make sure that you vision comes to life on your wedding day.
Each event planner on our team will cater their service to your specific needs. Day-Of Coordinator package is perfect for the hands-on bride who just wants to be able to sit back and watch her hard work come to fruition on her wedding day without having to play a double role as a bride and a coordinator. Day-Of Coordinator Plus (+) gives you the help of an expert to wrap up those details it’s hard to find time for, so you can spend the last weeks leading up to your wedding day feeling confident, rested, and relaxed.
