CIEL | The Sky:

"Relax, you're covered."

A SMALL YET FABULOUS WEDDING PLANNING EXPERIENCE

We created this package for the DIY couple who would like to do most of the planning themselves and would then like to hand the reins to a seasoned professional (who will cross every T, dot every I, and make sure all your details have been carefully considered and accounted for). That way, you’ll have the gift of being fully present on your wedding day, trusting that you and your vendors are in the very best hands.

This coordination package also includes several very helpful additions – such as a Welcome Meeting, a Progress Meeting, a Master Timeline Meeting, custom planning checklists (created for you by us), distribution of your master timeline, vendor follow-up, and of course, complete coordination of your wedding rehearsal and wedding day.

Planners can help with your budget constraints and legal contracts.

"We can then stretch your budget because we know what's more important. We know what's going to have more impact," Cordogan says. "We recently had a bride who wanted bagpipers and we just did her day of coordination so we learned that she spent over $1,000 on five bagpipers and bagpipers are so loud you only need one. We could have saved her $800 in that small decision. Even small decisions can add up to big savings when you have a planner who knows what they're doing.

Planners will fight for your wedding vision and keep everything on track.

In addition to helping couples with their budget and supervising sticky details like legal contracts, the most important perk of a planner, Cordogan and Weller say, is having someone who'll fight for your wedding vision from start to finish. While many vendors tackle more than one wedding per day or per weekend, a planner is focused only on your special day and will push to make sure everything goes according to your unique plan.
"It really is a long journey to the alter and on the wedding day [you want] someone who knows what's in your brain and knows that you want an outdoor ceremony even if it looks like rain, and will fight for that until the very last minute," Cordogan says, "Or if it does rain we're going to run out there and dry out the chairs."

Planners can keep things stress-free.

From a vendor's perspective, working with a wedding planner instead of directly with the bride or groom or their parents can keep things streamlined and stress-free. Erin Foster-Olszewski, owner of West Town's A Stem Above floral design, says especially as the wedding day gets closer, she'd rather bother a planner ironing out last minute details than worry an already-stressed couple directly. According to Cordogan, planners having those built-in relationships with vendors can also cut costs.

Planners can get you a vendor discount.

"Sometimes discounts don't appear on paper. If we call our lighting guy and on the wedding day we don't like what he's brought, you can be sure we're going to have him add extra lighting and [you're not going to] get charged for it," she says. "We are repeat business. Couples are not. [The vendors] aim to please us so we bring them more business."

five

Planners can handle ceremony to reception flipping.

Full and partial planning packages aside, Foster-Olszewski says a day-of coordinator is ideal, if you can wing it, especially if your celebration involves complex orchestration like flipping the ceremony space in a short time period so it's ready for the reception.
"It is so important to have somebody who can bring in vendors who are familiar with the space who are familiar with what they're doing," she says.

six

Planners can help you coordinate the entire day (as opposed to just one aspect).

A wedding that's divided in multiple venues with their own coordinators may require less overall coordination, Foster-Olszewski says. But even if a venue offers an in-house coordinator, Cordogan advises couples to remember that that person will likely only be coordinating the specific details that venue is responsible for providing, like food or the space itself. They may not be focused on helping you juggle all the little details that will make your special day so special. And juggling details is the last thing you and your fiancé want to worry about on your wedding day.
"At a hotel or a venue, they see a wedding every weekend or two a weekend," Weller says. "Your wedding planner wants to make sure this is your wedding. So having someone help you understand how to celebrate that is so important."

At Wish Wonder Dream, we definitely go above and beyond to make sure our couples feel confident it’s a great match. And if it ever isn’t the best match (which has happened but definitely not often), we have a Studio Manager and a General Manager who can easily assist couples with transitioning to a different Principal Coordinator.

Why should I hire a wedding coordinator?

Our Soleil package is basically a dream come true. Clients have all-access to their Principal Coordinator (during business hours of course) throughout the planning process. Would you like your Principal Coordinator to join you for a venue tour? Done! Would you like your Principal Coordinator to attend a planning meeting on your behalf? Just ask! Would you like to schedule a budget review meeting with your Principal Coordinator? No problem at all! Your Principal Coordinator will be available - by appointment - to be by your side at planning meetings and venue tours, to complete tasks for you, to attend meetings with you or on your behalf, and more. Your Principal Coordinator will also send over regular email or phone updates, keep you in-the-loop on venue and vendor correspondences, negotiate estimates to get you the best rates, keep your budget and planning calendar current, etc. You’re ensured a smooth and seamless process and you get to have a TON of fun doing it! In total, Soleil clients tend to spend about 30-50 hours with their Principal Coordinator, and the Principal Coordinator completes quite a bit of “behind the scenes” work beyond that.

one

Your wedding date because we never want a Principal Coordinator to have too much work at any given time that it takes away from the client’s experience.

Soleil

Personality match between you and the Principal Coordinator, because making sure our couples feel comfortable and very well taken care of is our number one priority

three

If the Principal Coordinator is especially familiar with the couple’s venue, because for example, she/he has worked there quite a bit, then that would definitely contribute to the decision as well.

Complimentary Consultations are conducted by designated members of our team who love connecting with couples who inquire with us, and are specially trained to answer all their questions. Once a couple decides to move forward with Wish Wonder Dream, the person who conducted the Complimentary Consultation will make a recommendation of the best Principal Coordinator for them, and will then arrange an introduction.

Our Ciel package is a fabulous little package. It’s small but mighty because it comes with all the benefits of a traditional ‘month of’ package -- but it also comes with more! You’ll have helpful meetings with your Principal Coordinator at the beginning, middle, and end of your wedding planning experience. You’ll meet for a Welcome Meeting at the beginning, a Progress Meeting in the middle (which we like to hold at your venue so we can also walk the space together), and a Master Timeline Meeting at the end. In the final 6 weeks leading up to your wedding day, your Principal Coordinator will become available for unlimited phone and email access. Together you’ll tie up loose ends, cover all bases, dot all “i’s” and cross all “t’s.” On average, Ciel couples tend to spend a total of about 8-10 planning hours with their Principal Coordinator.

Ciel

Our Lune package is definitely our most popular, and it’s pretty easy to see why. We start with the Ciel package above and use that as a base. In addition to all the wonderful features of the Ciel package, we then add several awesome additions! Rather than having one Progress Meeting with your Principal Coordinator, you’ll actually have a monthly Progress Meeting. That means you’ll get to break your planning into bite-sized pieces, when it otherwise could have felt a bit overwhelming. As you go about planning your big day, you’ll be able to ask questions, seek insight, and gather advice on an ongoing monthly basis at each of your monthly Progress Meetings. Plus, you’ll also get to spend 8 additional hours with your Principal Coordinator, completing the tasks which would be most helpful to you. And finally, you’ll get to have a dedicated Style Meeting with one of our resident Wedding Stylists. In total, Lune clients tend to spend about 24-30 hours with their Principal Coordinator.
