Frequently Asked Questions I Receive From Brides & Grooms

We are the best! Service, service, service is where we begin our relationship with our brides and grooms. It continues way after their one of a kind wedding day and they jet off to their honeymoon.

You will want the best wedding planner to hand pick the perfect wedding professionals that fit your wedding investment and style you choose.

5. My reception is at a hotel that has a coordinator, why do I need a separate wedding coordinator?

That is an excellent question that we get from brides. We love the coordinators that work at the hotels; however we always want to be sure clients know in advance what role they play for your wedding. Hotel coordinators answer your questions about the policies of the venue, assist with menu choices, and process your paperwork. Many times on the wedding day the venue coordinator is not there or leaves early. The venue coordinator will not set up your many personalized items such as your favors, seating assignment names, sign in book, gift box, champagne flutes, and other personalized items that you would like set up on your special day.

In addition to the items mentioned above, InStyle Weddimg Planning & Design at a recent wedding had one of our coordinators deliver lunch to the bride and bridesmaids. They picked up the bouquets from the florist and delivered them to our bride so that she would have them for her "get ready pictures" that were at a different location. This is just a few items that we did for this particular client the morning of the wedding. Months leading up to the wedding, we negotiated all our clients vendor contracts (including the hotel), helped with finding the perfect place for her wedding dress and accessories, ordered the "save the dates" and invitations, designed the entire décor for the wedding, and many other services that hotel coordinators do not do.

6. How can I tell if a wedding planner is reputable?

InStyle Wedding Planning & Design has a A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Most clients around the country are very familiar with the BBB and their standards. Our clients are investing in a very important day in their life and should rest assured that a reputable company is taking care of this day for them.

7. Why does a wedding planner need to know from the beginning what my budget is?

We are asking at the beginning in order to serve you the best. It assess our time needed to successfully coordinate your wedding. Our coordinating is based upon our time, expertise, and the time of our staff. A clients wedding budget will tell us immediately how many vendors will be involved and how much time our client will need our assistance. We will be working continuously with hired vendors leading up to the wedding and the big day itself.
