DC FAQ WITH LAUREN
- What makes your team different from the other planners I am talking to?
We ARE a team. We are always communicating with each other to better ourselves and business for our clients. If we don’t have the answer to a question or the solution to a problem, our team is always there to help us!
- I just need day-of. Do you offer that?
Our month-of coordination package is our day-of package. We believe in order to serve you best, we need to become involved in the planning process earlier than showing up the day of the event!
- What exactly is full-service wedding planning and design?
Our full planning and design package is created to help you throughout every step of your wedding planning process. From helping with choosing vendors + negotiating a contract, to creating a custom design for you as a couple, we can do it all! We don’t select your vendors for you, but rather gather all of the information and present it to you and your wedding committee for you all to make the final decision.
- Can you help me with the design?
Of course! We will start by creating multiple mood boards to help you select the color palette and tone for your wedding. From there we create a full design board, that will walk you through your wedding as your guests will see it.
- What kind of response time do you have? How do you run your day to day communication?
We are quick! Email is the best way to reach our team because we can’t always answer our phones when we are in meetings etc. We typically respond within 24 hours, unless we are off-site at a wedding or enjoying the weekend with our family.
- Do you charge by the hour? Will my planning fee increase later in our time working together?
Our prices are all inclusive so you don’t have to worry about an increased invoice at the end of working together!
- Do you work with destination clients?
We adore our destination clients, and often work with couples from out of town.
- Where do you plan weddings? Do you have some local venues you love?
Charlottesville, Richmond + Washington DC. Pretty much all of Virginia! Some of our favorites are Early Mountain Vineyard, the Clifton, the Willard + John Marshall Ballrooms.
