What is the minimum budget you work with?
You should allocate about 10% of your budget for a coordinator or planner. For Event Management, your overall event budget would be around $20,000.
Can I hire you for just the day-of?
There is really no such thing as a day-of coordinator! There are SO many details your coordinator needs to know to ensure your special day runs smoothly. Our Event Management package allows us time to gather all your vendor information, create a day-of timeline, confirm final details with all vendors, distribute event details to all parties involved, and much more. We'll also make sure you are meeting your contractual obligations, like final paperwork and payments.
How many team members will be on-site the day of?
This is dependent on multiple factors including, but not limited to guest count, number of event locations, and room resets. During our consultation, we'll discuss your specific event needs.
How Far in Advance should I book?
Because Event Management is the most popular option for couples, we suggest booking Four 26 Events once you have selected your venue so we can pen you into the schedule for your rehearsal and wedding day (max of 12 months out). We kindly request at least 10 months' notice for full-service planning and 6 months notice for partial planning, but will accept events will less notice as our schedule allows.
How much are your services?
Event Management starts at $1900 which covers a lead planner onsite for your rehearsal and wedding day. Additional fees may be necessary based on travel distance, guest count, number of event locations, and other common factors that may require additional staff to be hired for your event. Final pricing will be discussed after a consultation and prior to contract execution.
Do I need Four 26 Events if I have a venue coordinator?
Yes! You should at minimum have a coordinator. Your venue coordinator is responsible for handling contract obligations for the venue. They will not be your sole contact for your wedding unless they are an all-inclusive venue (which typically restricts your vendor options). Also, the individual you work all your details out with, may not be the individual that is on-site the day of your event. When you hire Four 26 Events, we become your single point of contact 30 days out and are on-site for rehearsal and on your wedding day.
Do you require the use of specific vendors?
Once you hire Four 26 Events, you are provided a preferred vendor list. However, these are suggested for us - not required. Keep in mind when booking your venue, they may require you to use specific vendors.
