You’ve Got Questions. We’ve Got Answers!
Can you work within my budget?
Well, that depends on a lot of different variables. Since every bride is unique in what she wants for her wedding we’d prefer to talk with you about your vision personally to be better able to answer this question. But to give you some quick stats, our full service brides typically have budgets starting at $85,000 and going up from there. Of course, we do work with couples on smaller budgets that just need assistance with month of wedding coordination.
What area do you work?
Most of our weddings take place throughout the Hudson Valley, Catskills & Berkshires. We love to travel so we can certainly plan your wedding outside of the Hudson Valley!
Do you get a kickback from the vendors you recommend?
You can rest assured that we will never accept a kickback from any vendor that we recommend to you. You will also not see any increase in fees by our preferred vendors. We understand that this is standard practice in NY, so we do get this question frequently. But that’s just not how we do things here at Elite Wedding and Event Planning!
Can you recommend vendors who fit my style?
Yes! We work with some of the most talented vendors who each have their own unique style. We personally select and recommend the vendors that best fit your style.
Can you get me discounts with vendors?
Since we don’t take kick backs from vendors they are often willing to offer our couples some of the best rates!
Do you work alone? Or will you have lots of staff with you on my wedding day?
There is always at least one lead planner and two assistants at every wedding. Depending the size and details of your wedding there could be more.
How many weddings do you plan on the same weekend as mine?
Most of our couples choose to have a complete wedding weekend (Friday night rehearsal, Saturday wedding and Sunday brunch) so, unlike other planners, our lead planners choose to only do one wedding a weekend. We prefer to give our undivided attention to each of our clients and working with more than one couple in a weekend just doesn’t give you the attention you truly deserve on the most important day of your lives.
Will you be at my rehearsal?
Of course! We want to make for sure that no detail is missed and that starts with your rehearsal.
