What is the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator?A wedding planner does literally everything on the couple's behalf from the very beginning stages of wedding planning after saying yes to a proposal. The couple specifies their vision and the planner gets to work to make it happen, and execute on the big day. On the other hand, a wedding coordinator ONLY executes -- the couple plans everything themselves and hands off those plans to a professional to execute the day smoothly for them, so they can be in the moment.
My venue rental package includes a coordinator, so why do I need you?Such an important question to ask! When a venue includes a coordinator they are simply guaranteeing that a Venue Coordinator will be present during your wedding to attend all venue needs. They will NOT be attending to you, your fiancé, your guests or your specific design details. That's where we come in. As your Wedding Coordinator, we look out for you, your guests, the venue and all your other vendors to make sure everything happens smoothly. (The OCD is real, y'all!)
How far in advance do you book?Currently, we book new clients up to 18 months out from their event date. Fill out our Inquiry Form to see our current booking cut-off date. The cut-off date is updated monthly.
Do you offer custom packages?Heck yes!...and we live for your customization. Unlike the industry norm of offering predetermined, tiered packages, we opt for the Chipotle bar approach. Start with our base package and add all the toppings of yumminess made to order.
Are you an approved vendor for Disney Fairytale Weddings?Short answer: YES! Long answer: Disney Fairytale Weddings has their own team of planners and venue coordinators to work with you on your event, but you may be missing that personal touch. That's where we come in to be your liaison between the Disney team, any other vendors and you. As former Cast Members and current Fairy Godparents, we will assist with your personal items, your guests, and even adding some of our own special brand of pixie dust wherever you need it. If you're still unsure, check out question #2 on this list.
Do you only do Disney weddings?Nope! While Disney weddings are definitely our personal favorite (whether a Disney-inspired design, held at a Disney venue, or both!), we can do anything. Any theme, any venue...whatever your vision is, we'll make it happen. Our own brand of Fairy Godmother pixie dust is included no matter what, obvs.
Do you do backyard weddings?While we LOVE an untraditional wedding in a unique venue, unfortunately we are no longer booking events to be hosted at a private residence due to the unpredictable nature of outdoor events in Florida, logistical challenges, and increased liability. Don't count us out though -- we'd be happy to help you find a unique space that you and your guests will be talking about for years to come.
Do you offer payment plans?Yep! Our contracts are built with payments in thirds. All payments are 33% of the total balance, the first of which is due upon contract signing. The second payment is due halfway through the project and the final payment is due (30) days prior to your event date. However, we totally understand everyone has different needs, budgets and schedules so we are happy to work out a payment structure with you that works for both of us. We planned our own wedding...we totally get it and are here to help you feel comfortable.
Do you carry personal liability and professional indemnity insurance?Yes and yes! Don't ask for details about it though because adulting is hard.
Do you bring an emergency kit?Obvs...and it's a happy combination of my OCD and Fairy Godmother realness if you ask me. Your Wedding Playbook will include a list of all items in my kit, but basically, I've got you covered.
I have to travel for my wedding, can I ship my personal items to you?Short answer: yes! There is a whole clause about our policy for shipping/holding your personal items in our Contract, so make sure to read that thoroughly in your Proposal. When in doubt about something, just ask 😊
What's the story behind your brand?Whether you thought of this one on your own or we just informed you of something you didn't know you didn't know...this is such an important question to us, and we're glad you asked! rêverie is a French word meaning: "a state of being pleasantly lost in one's thoughts; a daydream". We chose to name our business with this word to represent all of the magical daydreams that we love to make a reality. Our icon is a dreamcatcher because WE, Jess and Austin, are your dreamcatchers / Fairy Godparents to create your perfect event. Our brand colors are black and white for the colors of a piano, as an homage to Jess' lifelong devotion to the instrument and to honor her Nana's legacy. So yes, there's a story and intention behind every decision and design we make...because we're not just wedding/event planners, we're storytellers.
I'm interested but want more info -- how do consultations work?So happy to hear that you want more info! To set up a consultation with Jess, first please fill out our online Inquiry Form. You will then receive our current Catalogue of Services to review and if everything looks good to you, you will have the opportunity to book an appointment on Jess' calendar at your convenience. All consultations are defaulted to be hosted on Zoom, but you may request an in-person meeting at our office in Sanford, FL if you prefer. Consultations will last about 45 minutes. For Zoom consultations, if you have not logged in within 15 minutes of the start time, the meeting will be ended due to a no-show. Please be mindful and prompt for your appointment. If you need to reschedule, please do so with reasonable notice. ✨I can't wait to hear all about your wedding daydreams! ✨
Do you do corporate events?Jess started her event planning career with nonprofit organizations and corporate groups! While currently our calendar is booked with only weddings, we definitely are available, capable, and certified to plan, coordinate and/or design corporate events as well. Fill out an Inquiry Form or send us an email to get started.
