Statistics show that the average wedding takes approximately 250 hours to plan (that is equivalent to over 6 full work weeks!). A Coordinator can save you time spent researching and planning. A Coordinator can also help you prioritize your vendors, get your budget in order, provide qualified vendor referrals, accompany you to vendor meetings and know what questions to ask, review vendor contracts, negotiate on your behalf.. Not to mention, a Coordinator provides creative décor and design ideas! And that final month prior to your wedding, a Coordinator will confirm your vendors, make a timeline, run your rehearsal, and be there to make sure that you, your family, and friends enjoy a totally stress-free day!
For starters, we have nearly 13 years combined experience planning events, Cemone has a degree in Hospitality Studies, and she teaches Event and Wedding planning at Miami Dade College. Cemone has worked in hotels, destination management companies, non -profits, fashion and understand the operational side of venues. In addition, Cemone is a certified event and wedding planner with Longevity. We all attend a professional wedding and special event association meetings and conferences, gaining education and knowledge about current industry trends.
Typically, Catering Managers at hotels or venues have the job of overseeing the wedding details that are directly related to the venue (and sometimes the food and beverage as well). It is not in their job description to confirm your vendors, run your rehearsal, oversee the vendors on your wedding day, cue you down the aisle at your ceremony, and make sure all of the day’s events are running according to schedule. As professional Wedding Coordinators, our services supplement the services offered by your Catering Manager, Banquet Manager & Staff, and other vendors.
No worries! We are here to help. Once we are in touch with you, we will ask a few questions in order to learn more about your upcoming wedding. After learning more about your needs, we will determine if a certain package is a good fit, or we will customize something to meet your needs.
Yes, we can! In fact, about half of our clients do not live in South Florida– they live all over the world. So we are very comfortable with out-of-city/state/country clients and communicating via phone, e-mail, FaceTime, and Skype.
By choice, each Coordinator plans approximately 10-to-20 weddings per year – a combination of Full Service, Month-Of, and Custom Coordination clients. We typically plan no more than two weddings per month each, with no more than one wedding per weekend each. We are firm believers in not over-committing ourselves, so we control our workloads in order to give our clients the time and attention they deserve!
Do we ever! One of our favorite parts of our jobs is working with our clients to brainstorm and create whatever is necessary to make their weddings extra-special and tailored to their personalities, likes, and desires. This is one of the main reasons we keep ourselves up-to-date with what’s current in the wedding industry, so we can offer creative and unique ideas for our clients’ weddings and events.
With our many years of experience, our friendly demeanors, and our ability to think creatively, we have earned a reputation as one of the top Wedding Coordination companies in South Florida. We believe in translating your vision into the perfect wedding or event. Our personalities and strong work ethic combine to make Out of Box Weddings a wedding planning powerhouse.
We tailor all vendor referrals to fit the specific client based on their style, personality, and budget. After meeting with you and getting to know more about you and your wedding, we send you vendor referrals that are selected especially for YOU!
Definitely not! Your wedding is YOUR event, not ours. We are there to help and guide you through the planning process, not to take over. We will give you as much or as little help as you want.
Oh no, that is not the way we operate! We believe in vendors working as a TEAM with one common goal: the success of your wedding. We want you to have a beautiful and wonderful wedding and we work together with your other vendors to create it for you. As for the wedding party, we are there to guide them on the wedding day, helping them and answering any questions, not to boss them around. We believe in fun and stress-free weddings for everyone involved!
