 I’m looking for a day-(or week- or month-) of coordinator. Is that what you do?

Well, yes and no. At Little Wedding Extras, it’s our philosophy that there’s no such thing as a true “day-of coordinator.” Hours and hours of work goes into organizing, communicating, and understanding your needs before the venue doors are open. We like to be a part of our clients’ wedding planning process from the time the contract is signed. This includes the big things like helping you create your timeline and the layout for the venue, but it may be something as simple as a recommendation on where to find the best price on linens or flatware. With us, you don’t have to limit your communication to a certain time frame. We’re here through it all!

What’s the difference between a planner and a coordinator?

As your planner, we’re going to do things for you. We take your ideas and vision and match you up with a few vendors we know will be a great fit, and let you make the final decision, but we hammer out the details and get things on paper. With our management/coordination packages, we do things with you. You’ll find your own vendors, but we’re here in a supporting role to answer your questions and be there when things get tough. We’ve always got a list of awesome vendors we know and love if you’re stuck on something. Either way, we’ll be there on the big day to help with everything from set up to tear down. If you’re in the middle, you can always go with our partial planning package and delegate the choices you don’t want to make for yourself.

Your prices say “starting at,” so what will make the price go up?

We’ve designed our packages to be all-inclusive, so most of the time, the listed price is what you’ll pay. All planning and management packages come with two experienced professionals, but for particularly large weddings over 300 guests, or venues where you need a person in multiple places at the same time, we bring in a third associate planner at a rate of $300 for the first eight hours and $50 for each additional hour. While we serve all of the greater DFW area and are available for travel, we do charge a travel feel for venues outside of Denton, Dallas, Tarrant, and Collin counties.

Can we hire you for flowers and wedding management?

Absolutely! Our floral design services require a separate contract, but we’re very experienced in providing both services for the same event. Clients who choose both services enjoy no delivery/set-up fees for floral, which could save you hundreds of dollars!

What areas do you serve?

While our primary areas of service are in Denton, Collin, Dallas, and Tarrant counties, we are available for weddings all over the world!

Do I have to have an in-person consultation?

We believe that an initial consultation is an important part of getting to know each other and making sure we’re the right fit for you, but schedules don’t always allow for that. In those cases, we do recommend a Skype chat or at least a phone call, but if you’re confident choosing us over email, then we’re happy to serve you!

I’m getting married in DFW, but I live somewhere else. Can we still work together?

It’s very common for couples to plan their weddings somewhere other than where they’re currently living and we’ve worked with many clients in exactly that situation. If you’re planning from afar, we’ll be sure to make time to speak on the phone or over video when you need it. Otherwise, we’re always an email away!
