What Does a Full Service Wedding Planner Actually Do?

A full-service wedding planner is a professional who offers comprehensive assistance and support to couples throughout the entire wedding planning process, from the initial stages of conceptualization to the execution of the wedding day itself.

A full-service wedding planner’s primary objective is to ensure that the couple’s vision for their wedding day is brought to life seamlessly and most of all, as stress-free as possible.

Here are some key aspects of what our full-service wedding planning team offers:

1. Initial Consultation: We meet with the couple to discuss their vision, preferences, and budget. This meeting helps establish the foundation for the wedding planning process.

2. Budget Management: At Luxe we assist in creating and helping our clients stay mindful when managing their budget, ensuring that expenses align with the couple’s financial resources and priorities.

3. Vendor Selection: Our planners help identify, recommend, and secure suitable wedding vendors, including venues, caterers, photographers, florists, entertainment, and more. They often have a network of preferred vendors but can also work with vendors chosen by the couple.

4. Timeline and Planning: We create a comprehensive wedding timeline, outlining tasks and deadlines to keep the planning process on track. This can include scheduling vendor meetings, creating and managing production logistics, and other essential activities.

5. Design and D├ęcor: Our wedding planners LOVE design, it’s the fun part. At Luxe we offer 15 years of expertise in wedding design and decor, assisting with themes, color schemes, and overall aesthetics to create a cohesive and visually appealing event.

6. Logistics: We handle the logistical aspects of the wedding day, including creating a detailed itinerary, coordinating with vendors, and managing the flow of events to ensure everything runs smoothly.

7. Ceremony and Reception Coordination: Our wedding planners oversee the ceremony and reception, ensuring that all elements, such as the ceremony setup, seating arrangements, and reception timeline, are executed flawlessly.

8. Problem-Solving: In the event of unforeseen issues or emergencies, our team at Luxe is highly skilled at troubleshooting and finding solutions without causing undue stress to our couples.

9. Guest Management: Full service planners assist with guest list management, and guide you to understand when any special accommodations for guests, such as dietary restrictions or transportation arrangements are needed or necessary.

10. Wedding Rehearsal: We can coordinate and lead the wedding rehearsal, ensuring that the wedding party and other participants understand their roles, responsibilities and timing.

11. Vendor Payments: At the end of your wedding we will facilitate vendor payments, ensuring that all payments are made on time and accurately.

12. Post-Wedding Wrap-Up: After the wedding, our Luxe full service wedding planning team may assist with tasks such as returning rental items, collecting personal belongings, and providing a final report of expenses.

The goal of a full-service wedding planner is to alleviate the stress associated with wedding planning, allowing the couple to fully enjoy their engagement and wedding day.
