Q. What services do you offer?
A: Wedding + Event Full Planning, Partial Planning, Month & Day Of Coordination.
Q: Will you travel?
A: Absolutely! We love to travel and can give you a quote based on distance and length of stay.
Q. My venue says they have a coordinator, can’t I just use them? Or a family member or friend?
A. Many venues have a employee that is responsible for sales/service & the venue refers to them as their “coordinator”. Some are more involved than others, but their main job duties are to oversee their venue & staff, not follow through with your detailed timeline or to be available to do things for you outside the venues contract. When you hire a personal coordinator, you are getting someone who is dedicated to seeing your complete vision for your wedding day or event come to life, and to give you their undivided attention.
Family & friends as your coordinator is never a good idea. Family & friends should be in attendance as your guests, and be able to fully enjoy the day & each moment with you instead of feeling anxious or stressed to get items off the to-do list done.
Q: Can we afford your services?
A. The average bride spends more than 9 hours per week planning their wedding. A good wedding coordinator is one that will save both time + energy. Plus, we have all the knowledge of areas we can help you save money on.
Q: Do you charge for initial consultation?
A: Consultations are complimentary. We take them by appointment only for in-person or phone consultations.
Q: Where will we meet for meetings?
A. If you are located in the Kansas City Metro area, consultations take place at our Parkville location. All other locations a meeting will be set up where it is best for the couple + coordinator.
Q. What forms of payment do you accept?
A. We do all of our contract and payment methods electronically to offer clients the ultimate convenience & to save time. This allows for credit or debit card payment. We can also do paper contracts and payments by check if preferred.
On all of our packages an initial deposit (applied to balance) is required to reserve your wedding/event date in our calendar.
Q: How long have you been in business?
A: I opened Vaughn Events in 2007, and then re-named the business in April of 2016 to Pretty + Planned Events, so 10 years now of being in business.
Q: Will I still have control over my event if you are planning it for me?
A: Of course! Our job is to help you develop your vision, plan it, organize it, and make it happen.
Q: Will you work with vendors I’ve already found or people I want to work with?
A: Definitely! We love meeting & working with new vendors. We do not require any client to work with the vendors we already know. We’re here to offer suggestions, advice, and research on vendors if requested.
