Frequently Asked Questions
You are newly engaged, overwhelmed with wedding information, and probably can't remember which vendor you've contacted when. To help you keep your head on straight and make things a little easier for you, we have listed answers to the most frequent questions we receive - although we still encourage you to reach out and chat! We would love to talk with you!
How much do you charge?
Among a whole lot of other factors, your decision to hire Magically Yours as your wedding planner may rely heavily on price. While we have a few packages built around our most popular services for your convenience, we never want you to pay more than you have to. We gladly create customized packages for our clients depending on what services they need. To be able to give you the best quote, we need to know a little bit more about your wedding planning visions and needs. We would love to sit down with you for a free consultation to be able to talk with you about what we can offer you - and how much that would cost. Our packages start at $2500.
Do you travel?
Magically Yours focuses in the Central Florida area, but serves engaged couples from all across the country. We absolutely love to travel! For consultations outside of Central Florida and for destination weddings, you will be invoiced only for the travel expenses of the planner(s) (i.e.: hotel room, gas, flight, and/or rental vehicle). We are also happy to work remotely with couples from long distances using Skype, Google Hangouts, phone calls, emails - however we can best work with you to make your wedding visions a reality and help you enjoy the planning journey!
Can we meet you before we hire you?
Absolutely! In fact, I will not sign a contract with a potential client before meeting with them face-to-face. When possible, I strongly prefer in-person meetings, although I am happy to do phone or video call meetings for out-of-area clients. I offer free one hour initial consultations to all prospective clients to make sure that we would be the right fit for your wedding & what you're looking for from a wedding planner.
Do you have a minimum budget that you work with?
No! We understand the importance of having a wedding planner and/or coordinator on your side. We know that you don't have to spend a lot to have a beautiful, deeply meaningful wedding. You also have to be realistic and understand that if the wedding you want involves a formal multi-course meal for 200, it isn't going to be cheap. I can help you figure out what a realistic budget is for the wedding you want, or how to create a wedding you'll love with the budget you have. I don't believe that you should go into debt to pay for your wedding, but I also don't believe that you need to be rolling in the dough to have the wedding you have always dreamed of.
Do you plan other types of events?
Here at Magically Yours, we are focused solely on weddings. We do not plan other types of events, such as birthday parties, retirements, holiday parties, work functions, or graduations.
Are you going to make me work with certain vendors?
We will never force you to do anything you do not want to do. While we do have a list of vendors we love to work with because they share our philosophies and we've had great experiences with them, we will never force you to work with them if they are not for you. We will do our absolute best to recommend people and vendors that would make an excellent fit for you and your budget, but all decisions about your wedding are entirely yours. We also do not request or require commisions from any of the vendors we work with, so you can be absolutely sure that you're being recommended to someone because we genuinely believe in them and their business.
