Frequently Asked Questions

do i need a planner?

We're totally biased but we say yes! Do you want someone to advocate for you? Do you want advice or a second opinion through out the planning process? Do you want guidance on making the best vendor decisions, stretching your budget and the ability to anticipate unforeseen problems while simultaneously correcting them? Do you want someone to coordinate set up, keep the day flowing smoothly, prioritize guest experience, bring you a drink, facilitate break down and more?

If so, then you need a wedding planner! We will look out for your best interests always so that your wedding day is everything that you have imagined and more!

are you inclusive?

LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE IS LOVE! We want to shout this from the rooftops. TLV is inclusive of ALL couples!

what if my venue has a coordinator?

We work closely with venue coordinators/managers to make sure your event is a success! We have open communication throughout the day and work together to make sure that everything is running on track. We also work together to field guests requests and make sure that the venue guidelines are being followed by vendors.

Ultimately though, venue coordinators are responsible for venue related items (such as unlocking facilities, climate control, adjusting lighting, maintenance issues, catering kitchen use, setting up tables and chairs to match floor plan specifications, enforcing venue rules and more). The TLV Team has different responsibilities which are outlined in our packages.

what if you've never been to my venue?

We can't wait to check more venues off of our venue bucket list! We include a venue walkthrough with all packages so we are always up to speed on the ins and outs of a venue prior to working at it. Working at a new place just keeps things exciting for us!

do you offer day of coordination or event management?

Sort of! Our closest package is called Month of Coordination. It encompasses much more than a traditional Day of Coordination offering. Quite frankly, if we showed up on wedding day without meeting prior, we would be lost. Our preplanning allows us to be prepared and ready to execute a flawless event from start to finish.

do you travel? what if we aren't local?

Yes - our passports are ready!! We are no stranger to staying in a hotel for an entire wedding weekend or week. Travel does our hearts good and we'd love to go along with you! Special rates/discounts apply to those getting married in international locations!

We've planned with couples from all over! We are masters at video calls and time zone differences so even if you aren't local, that's no problem!

what's your planning style?

We pride ourselves on being honest and direct. We want to make your dreams a reality all while maintaining realistic expectations. Ultimately, you are in control of every single planning decision. Our job is to educate couples on the choices at hand and allow them to choose what works best!

On wedding day, we balance kindness with assertiveness (picture us wrangling tipsy groomsmen). We are calm and collected, yet efficient in our ability to get things done. You won’t have to worry about anything because we will take care of everything. 

how many hours do you work on wedding day?

This depends on the package. But we typically work up to 12 hours. Generally, we are one of the first to arrive onsite and the last to leave.

What if I’m just looking for advice? Or just looking for set up/breakdown?

We offer consulting services affectionately known as “planning power hours.” You are welcome to hire us for an hour at a time to pick our brains. Contact us to learn more. 

All of our packages include set up and break down (with restrictions for heavy DIY events) but unfortunately, we don’t offer a set up/breakdown only service. 

Do you plan social events (showers, birthday parties, etc..)?
Do you plan corporate events?

Yes! We love social events! It’s extra special when we get to plan a social event for a former client. Let us help you with all of life’s milestone moments! 

Corporate events keep us creative! We specifically love to plan holiday parties but are happy to help with any event. We are also available for consulting. 

Contact us to learn more about social/corporate event pricing. 

Do you offer A-la carte services?

Of course! Want to plan a proposal? Need help with hotel favor bags? Curious about styling offerings? Contact us to learn more about the various ways we can support you.

We do a little happy dance every time we get an inquiry. Seriously, we so appreciate your interest in The Lovely Veil!
