Can I afford a wedding/event planner?
Working with a wedding/event planner is an investment towards ensuring that your special occasion is successful. The average couple will spend approximately 300+ hours planning their wedding. Who has that kind of time!? Well, we do…that’s who! And the benefit of working with us is that we will save you TIME and MONEY!!! Additionally, we enable you to have a fun and stress free planning experience. And who doesn’t want that…right! So the question becomes how can you afford NOT to work with an wedding/event planner.
Unlike some companies, we do not just offer wedding planning services. We work with various audiences and the needs and wants of our clients vary. Thus it, is impossible for us to definitively answer this question. But what we can definitely share is that when you hire Kreative Sentiments, you directly benefit from our relationships with reputable vendors and other event industry professionals because we are able to serve as your advocate, and negotiate price on your behalf. Because wedding and event planning is “what we do” as a profession, we are viewed differently than the end-user/client looking to personally secure vendors for their event.
For weddings we offer full, partial and a la carte wedding planning services to accommodate the wants and needs of today’s couples. Additionally, we offer event design, planning and management services for social, corporate and nonprofit events. We would be happy to provide a quote, but to do so, we will first need to understand your event wants and needs, so connect with us, we would love to hear from you.
If I’m already working with a venue coordinator, why do I need to hire Kreative Sentiments?
Excellent Question! The short answer is simply this: Venue coordinators, work for the venue, wedding and event planners work for you! As wedding and event planners, our number one priority is ensuring that your event is planned and executed to perfection and that you and your guests are well taken care for the duration of your event. A venue coordinator, however, is primarily responsible for aspects of your event that specifically involve the venue such as venue walk thrus, drafting venue contracts, scheduling tastings, monitoring your payments and understanding logistically how you wish for your event space to be set up. Venue coordinators typically serve three primary purposes: venue salesperson, venue ambassador, and liaison between you and the venues on-site operations team. Unlike wedding and event planners, venue coordinators DO NOT assist you with the actual planning of your event: budget development, budget management, event design, stationary, floral design, guest management, vendor management; nor do they execute your event itinerary, keep you on schedule and assist with “day-of” facilitation and execution of your event.
