Frequently Asked Questions
Any Event, Anywhere
I have help from my venue coordinator, what’s the point of hiring a wedding planner?
#1. Saves you plenty of time. Between work, social life, family, dealing with finances, potentially looking at a new home, who has the time?! Did you know that according to a study done in 2019, it takes approximately 528 hours to plan a wedding? 528 is a lot considering you can barely manage to find an hour of downtime for yourself!
We help with every detail to make your vision become a reality and all you need to do is tell us what you’re looking for. We will assist in finding, messaging, and arranging all meetings and details with venues and vendors within your price range. We will assist you in finding the pros and cons of each and we will make sure that you make a selection that you won’t regret.
#2. An event coordinator will help you stay on track with every task that needs to be taken care of leading up to the wedding or special event. We will help with what needs to be done and when you should start getting it done. Chances are, you’ve never planned a wedding or special event like this before so it’s difficult to know and remember every single detail that needs to go into it when you already have so much on your mind.
#3. An event coordinator will ensure that you don’t break the bank and go over budget. Throughout all of our research, we will make sure that each vendor falls within an appropriate price range before sharing them with you.
#4. Unlike a venue coordinator, Eternal Bliss Events’ coordinators are available 24/7. If you need us or you have a question or concern, call or text, we will be there for you.
#5. An event coordinator will ensure perfection on your special day. We will overanalyze every detail ensuring perfection. We will set-up décor, candles, picture frames, napkin folds, bathroom baskets, card boxes, place cards, you name it, we have you covered! If we see a candle that’s 4 cm out of place, we’ll catch it and we’ll fix it! Attention to detail is our specialty!
#6. You will not have to worry about a single thing on your wedding day except marrying the love of your life and celebrating with your loved ones. We are there to line up and cue the procession, line up and cue the grand entrance, cue the speeches, cue the DJ, cue the first dances, ensure every guest receives their meal and ensure we are sticking to your premade timeline of the day. You can sit back and relax without constantly looking at the time, wondering if your guests are being fed, and worrying about if something were to go wrong. We have you covered.
Do I need a coordinator for a COVID-19 wedding?
An event coordinator will help you create plan A, B, and C. We will help cut guest lists, we will help with wording on invitations, we will find vendors that are fair with their deposits and they will not take advantage of your money and/or the situation we have all been put in during these hard times.
On the day of, we will help with safety. Are guests wearing their masks? Is there hand sanitizer around the venue? Are people/tables 6 feet apart? Are touchpoint areas and washrooms being sanitized in between each use?
You worry about love, we’ll worry about safety and logistics.
Can I pay in installments?
We typically accept payments in 2 installments. The first installment is 30% of your total balance which is due upon booking. The second and final installment is due 7 days before your wedding.
How many people from your team will be at my wedding/special event?
Each package includes 2 coordinators for the day-of. You will have 1-2 coordinators on-site depending on the décor set-up and size of the wedding.
Will you create a timeline that tells everyone involved in the planning process what to do & when to do it?
We will help you create a schedule for the entire day and this schedule will be shared with the venue and all other vendors involved. Your coordinator will be in touch with each vendor the week before to ensure everyone is on the same page. On the day of the wedding, your coordinator will have hard copies of this schedule on-site in case someone has forgotten theirs. We will also be going over the schedule one last time on the morning of your event.
What happens if you're sick or otherwise unable to be there on the day of our wedding?
We ensure that we create all of our documents legible and specifically detailed enough that anyone – even your crazy uncle, Nino - can pick it up and run the event. If one coordinator is sick or cannot make it due to unforeseen circumstances we will have another coordinator step in.
Do you do destination weddings?
However, the owner and lead coordinator, Alessia, is TICO certified so she is able to assist with honeymoon planning. Destination planning coming soon!
