Wedding Consultant Terms for Planning and Arranging Your Wedding
Wedding planners organize meetings, book vendors, plan logistics and help you to create a budget that will include your most important elements. These terms encompass many of the services that wedding consultants offer.
Full-service package – This will come with a certain amount of hours for planning services and on-site help with the ceremony itself. With this type of plan, you know ahead of time exactly what you're paying for the consultant's services.
Individual consultation – If you are planning a wedding on a modest budget, you may opt for a few individual consultations rather than purchasing a full package. These hourly sessions can help you to form a check list, choose vendors such as musicians, and answer questions about etiquette, logistics and design.
Printed material services – This category includes save-the-date cards, invitations, announcements, menu cards, thank you notes and other printed materials. You will consult with the planner about material and design themes.
Reception coordination – The wedding consultant will arrange your reception timeline. Cues for toasts, pictures, dances and other special events will guide the bride, groom and participants as to what to do. Reception coordination will include payments to professionals, such as caterers.
Wedding ceremony coordination – Flower distribution, bridal party line-up, the telling of vows, pictures, the family processional and the recessional and receiving lines will be organized and coordinated.
Venue – You can arrange to marry in a church, hotel, historic building, park, golf course, on the beach, in an exotic destination, or just about anywhere. Catering is sometimes included. You may choose to have different venues for the ceremony and reception, or have everything take place at the same location. A consultant will assist you in choosing your venue and will act as your liasion in managing details.
