Deciding to hire a wedding planning professional is not an easy one. So here are some quick answers to our most frequently asked questions.
As your wedding planner, we will ease the stress that you’re bound to feel during the planning process. We will engage and book trustworthy vendors, negotiate the best prices, manage your budget, create timelines and keep track of deadlines, advise you on wedding etiquette, provide viable options and be your personal assistant. Our sole responsibility will be to ensure that every detail leading to and on your wedding day is handled.
We provide both services. Our full-service planning option includes complete coordination of all aspects of the actual wedding day. However, if you have already planned your wedding, you really wouldn’t want to leave the nitty gritty of your vision in the hands of a friend or relative who is also a guest at your wedding. In this case, you can hire us one month in advance to manage and execute all of the logistics of your wedding day from start to finish.
Yes we do! Planning a wedding from afar is very overwhelming and our expertise is putting your mind at ease. Known as the ‘Pearl of the Caribbean’, Jamaica is nothing less than a visitor’s paradise and we are only too happy to ensure that our destination couples receive the best that the island has to offer. With our knowledge of the local landscape and the relationships built with other professionals in the industry, we will execute your Jamaican dream wedding, even from afar.
In addition to wedding planning and coordination services, we also provide design and décor services as well as rental of décor items for your event. Additionally, while weddings are our main focus, we also plan and decorate other celebratory events such as birthdays, anniversaries and dinner parties, to name a few.
No we are not a venue. However, we work with several venues across the island and will be happy to recommend a suitable venue during our consultations. We also provide venue search services for clients who have retained our services.
There is a distinct difference between venue coordinators and wedding coordinators. Your venue coordinator is employed to the venue and not directly by you. That person may also not be the actual individual assigned to you on your wedding day. A venue coordinator is only responsible for ensuring that the venue provides what it has been contracted do and most likely, will be handling other events on the same day as your wedding. The bottom line is, the venue coordinator is there to look after the interest of the venue while the wedding coordinator will be focused on you and your needs only.
It is our belief that every couple and every love story is unique. We also know that wedding trends are ever changing and for this reason we do not provide pre-determined packages. During our initial consultations, we will discuss your vision with you and assist you in determining the details that best fits your personality and style as well as your budget.
Our starting prices for Full Planning – U$1800, Partial Planning – U$950, Month of Coordination – U$500. Final cost for any planning or décor service is dependent on event size, desired location and design details. Please visit our Services page to see full details.
Absolutely! We prepare detailed service agreements for our planning, coordination and décor services which requires the signature of both parties.
We accept cash, certified cheques, wire transfers and direct deposits. As most agreements are signed well in advance of t-he wedding date, our service agreement includes a payment plan starting with a deposit to reserve your date with us. A schedule of payments is also given with final payment being 4 weeks prior to the wedding date.
Our first consultation is absolutely FREE! It is usually 30 – 45 minutes in duration and is a no-obligation, get-to-know-you and your vision discussion. If we have decided that we are a great fit for each, agreed the necessary details and signed a contract, then all other consultations would be included in our terms of agreement at no additional cost.
Booking a consultation is very easy. All you need to do is send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at 876.566.5810 or Say Hello

Yes, you can but that will be dependent on the policies of the resort you choose and whether they accommodate external vendors. We recommend speaking to the resort about this when making your booking.

Yes we do. Thankfully we’ve never had to invoke it as we are about finding alternative solutions that are acceptable to both parties. In the event that a cancellation is unavoidable, our service agreement sets out in details the terms for cancellation within specific time frames. Each vendor also has their terms for cancellation.
No, we do not. We believe that your wedding day is too important to channel our focus elsewhere. Not only is this special day important to you, it is also important to us. Giving you our individual attention is the only way to ensure that you receive the best that you deserve.
