Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you offer Day-Of or Month-Of Coordination?
I do offer Day-Of Coordination for both weddings and events. The service starts 3 weeks out from your Day. All of your vendors would already be booked and all plans made. I will come in as your point of contact and liaison at 3 weeks out. I will make sure there are no loose ends and I will coordinate final details with your vendors including timelines. I will be there to direct the rehearsal and I will be there, of course, the day of.
2. Where does your pricing start?
If you notice on my packages, there is a price range. That is because we base our final fees on elements that are specific to your event and your event needs. Every event is different and so is every budget, guests count, location, time of year, etc. Your package price will be with the price range for that package. You will be presented with your price point before you sign your contract.
Our clients' budget ranges from $27,000-$40,000 and guests count from 60-150.
The files below have the price ranges for all of my packages.
3. What is the difference between your All-Inclusive Full-Service and your Planning Service?
My All-Inclusive gives you the ultimate planning experience. It is the only service that includes our Design Management Service. With this package, we would meet and discuss all of your planning needs, what type of event you want, and what you are looking for. I will choose and work with a team of industry experts to pull all of this together for you. This service is not designed for the DIY couple or client. This service is designed for those who do not have the time to constantly go over details, attend numerous meetings and the constant back and forth of the planning process.
My Planning Service is ideal for those who want to be involved in vendor selections, attend meetings, and want all the details.
The files below tell you what is included in each package.
4. Is Virtual Planning right for me?
I offer 3 types of Virtual Planning that may fit you.
Planning Life Coach- Helps keep you on track and accountable during your planning process and give you advice.
The Concierge- An assistant to help you schedule your appointments, do appointment follow-ups and help create questions to ask vendors specific to your needs.
The Consultant- This is your virtual planner. You get up to 3 planning aspects a month. I help you find vendors, help with timelines, and help with planning.
Each of these services has specific planning benefits to suit what you need and how much you need. These services can be used if you are doing an event in this area, not in this area or even a destination wedding or event.

5. Where can we learn more about you?
On the Why Chantel page, I talk about myself and my drive for you and making your wedding or event successful.
On the Why EIABINC page, I talk to you about how I use my drive to make your wedding or event successful and how I take your event to the next level.
On Wedding Wire, you can read reviews from my past clients and read in their own words about their experience working with me.
6. What are the next steps to working with you?
By the time you have gone thru my website, read my reviews from Wedding Wire, read my bio and my company's bio, and look over the pricing guide with the detailed list of what all is involved... you know me, myself and my company and what I do through and through. So your next step would be to book a New Client One-Hour Consultation for only $35 (this fee goes towards your deposit once you sign). In this consultation, we will discuss your vision (feel free to bring your vision board), you can ask any questions you have, and I will personally share with you:
How to hone in on your wedding/event style
How to maximize your budget through the planning process
What to look for when picking your dream vendors and venues
Tips on guests hosting, hospitality and guest listing
How to turn your Pinterest board into your actual event
Mistakes to avoid when you are planning
This is a valuable session to get the jump start on your planning. You will leave with practical planning tools to get started on the right path.
After that, we will create a contract that is fitting for your event and a 50% retainer fee is due at the signing of the contract. The remainder will be due 14 days prior to your Day. We can schedule a payment plan as well.
