A traditional wedding planner is someone who sources and liaises with your suppliers, provides timelines and budgets, attends your menu tasting and is on hand on the big day to ensure everything goes smoothly. Often (but not always) a traditional wedding planner will receive a commission from your suppliers on top of their wedding planning fee (Lisa does not do this at Bella Weddings in Spain or at OWC) so you may find suppliers are upselling their services when they are not always needed and this can increase your budget. Or a traditional wedding planner will have a basic fee and then received 10-15% of your overall budget.
Yes it is! Hiring a traditional wedding planner has always been seen as a luxury, not a necessity, but with today’s busy couples and their stressful lives hiring, a virtual wedding planner is becoming more and more acceptable and a valuable part of the wedding planning process. Think of a virtual wedding planner (or coach as we like to call it) as like having a pro in the family; expert advice, tips and tricks of the trade and huge amounts of experience just a phone call, text or email away. An added bonus of having us as your virtual wedding consultants is that you know our fees upfront. It is not based on your overall wedding budget and therefore there are no hidden surprises along the way.
No, not at all. We do not offer this service. We can advise what to look for, what to avoid in suppliers and once you have booked the suppliers yourself we can work out a customized time line for you and them. If you would like to DIY certain elements of your wedding ie do your own make up or dress your reception tables we can advise on the logistics.

As we mentioned before, we are unbiased and not affiliated with your suppliers or venue. Based on our combined 18 years of wedding experience we can offer suggestions and advice but ultimately all the decisions are yours.
