RETAINER AND THE PAYMENT PROCESS
The retainer to secure Siello Weddings and Events is 25% of the initial invoice total. The remaining balance is then broken into equal payments with the final payment due 30 days prior to the event date.
Siello Weddings and Events will not book full service weddings more than 18 months from the initial inquiry and wedding management more than 12 months in advance.
FULL-SERVICE OR WEDDING MANAGEMENT?
If you can manage securing reputable vendors for your wedding then Wedding Management may be for you. We will not begin working with your vendors until 60 days prior to the wedding but don't worry, we are available to you for guidance throughout planning if you find yourself in a pickle. If you already have too much on your plate or just aren't sure you can take on the task all on your own, then Full-Service would probably be the better fit.
Looking for "Day of Coordination"? This is known as Wedding Management. Day of coordination is a misleading term the wedding industry is trying to desperately rid of. You will not find a planner who is willing to show up on your wedding day without doing any preliminary work to ensure your event runs smoothly. And if you do, God speed.
WHO WILL BE COORDINATING
Depending on your wedding size and the logistics of the day your Wedding Day Assistant will more than likely be the one who will coordinate your ceremony.
WHAT IS A WEDDING DAY
As your lead wedding planner I must be available to your vendors on the wedding day as well as set up your venues, so included in full service and wedding management is a Wedding Day Assistant. Your W.D.A. will arrive at your getting ready location, make sure your wedding party are all accounted for, and get your detail shot items set aside for your photographer. They will stay onsite to assist with getting ready photos and ensure everything needed for the day is packed. Your W.D.A. will coordinate your ceremony and be on site for the duration of the day to assist me with various tasks as well as be available to you for anything you may need.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE REFINE PLANNING PORTAL?
Inside your portal you will have all of the necessary tools to help you stay on track. If you are a full-service client you will be required to work through your planning portal entirely and yes, there will be deadlines and documents to complete. As much as I would like to do it all for you, this is YOUR wedding so you must be willing to work alongside me in order for your day to come to life as you envision it.
DO YOU ASSIST WITH SMALL
The majority of our weddings have guest counts between 50 and 75 with a small handful with less than 25. they are custom and tailored with heavy planning and design assistance.
Due to our limited availability we no longer assist with restaurant reception wedding dinners; however, we are more than happy to provide you with a list of our favorite restaurants for such dinners.
