Q: What is a Wedding Planner?
A: A wedding planner is a professional whose training, expertise & contacts help you plan your wedding to perfection. A professional wedding planner has many roles-adviser, coordinator, supervisor, financial planner, & mediator. When choosing a wedding planner, it is important to consider their personality and perspective. You should feel completely comfortable with the wedding planner you hire. Please see the “About Us” section to learn more about me.

Q: What will a Wedding Planner do for me?
A: After the exhilaration of the engagement settles and the reality of the planning begins, it can be shocking for couples to discover the amount of preparation involved to planning a wedding. As your to-do list grows, you are faced with decisions about every large to small detail – from invitation wording to planning your honeymoon. Hence, you will need experienced assistance to guide you through this journey. My Bridal Budget will save you time and help you avoid costly mistakes, as well as provide you with guidance.

Q: Can I afford a Wedding Planner?
A: Some time ago, a Wedding Planner was thought of as a luxury service used only by the wealthy. Now a Wedding Planner is a part of your budget not an extra expense. Wedding Planning services are actually much more affordable than most people would imagine. My Bridal Budget will work with you and your budget to give you the best option that serves your needs. We will help you come up with ideas that fit what you envision for the price you are seeking. We offer quality at an affordable price! Schedule a complimentary consultation now to learn more.

Q: My Venue already provides a coordinator. How are you different?
A: The Venue that provides a coordinator or Maitre’D is there for you only at the venue. They are not there to help you plan or coordinate anything besides what is in their contract and at the venue. We are here for you to help with any issue that might arise for the whole day and months before the big day. We will get to know you personally and know all the dynamics of who you are and what you want. We help you with everything including coming up with a comprehensive time line covering your entire day.

Q:Does My Bridal Budget, LLC have liability insurance?
A:Yes we do have liability insurance. If your venue requires proof of insurance, we can submit it upon request to your venue.

Q: Why can’t I do the planning myself?
A: Well, of course you can, it all depends on your lifestyle - although, it does take 250 hours or more to plan a perfect day. Having a full-time career and other responsibilities combined with planning your wedding, you may not have time to compare all the options, making sure you get the best deal and that all of the details are in place. Possibly, this process can lead to un-needed stress for a newly engaged couple. My Bridal Budget will rescue you from the chaos. We are there to help you and you will have complete control of your desired plans. We offer 4 packages, plus a la carte services that you can choose from to best fit your needs. We’re always just a phone call/email away if you have any questions.

Q: I would like to hire a wedding planner to help me plan my wedding, but I do not want the planner to take over. How do I make sure I don’t lose control over my wedding?
A: Wedding Planners are not supposed to make decisions for you, but to guide and assist you in making wise choices. My Bridal Budget will help you host a beautiful and distinctive event that you can enjoy.

Q: I don’t have a “platinum wedding” budget; can I still have a fabulous event on a smaller budget?
A: YES! Every event has a budget- whether big or small. Spend only what you can afford – most importantly please always remember to start your marriage debt-free. One of the first things we do when we meet with you is talk about the budget and your priorities. After the budget is set, we then begin the process of finding a location and vendors that are within your budget.

Q: What can I expect at the complimentary initial consultation?
A: We offer a complimentary initial one-hour consultation where we can get acquainted and you will learn what My Bridal Budget has to offer. In addition, we get to know each bride and groom to learn your likes and dislikes, interests, personal style, and vision for the wedding. Based on this information, we give you creative ideas for planning a wedding you will love.

Q: I want to hire you, but I already have my location & vendors, is that ok?
A: Of course! You can come to us with all your vendors selected, or only a few. We will assist you in any selections you haven’t made as well as step in on the ones you have. The perfect package for you can either be the Rest Assure package or Live, Laugh & Love package. Finding great vendors is just the beginning; there’s follow up with several meetings and planning out the logistics for each vendor - the perfect reason to hire us!

Q: How do you choose vendors to recommend?
A: We have either been directly involved in a successful event with the vendors, or we have associates who have used and recommended them. We do not accept referral fees (“kickbacks”) from our vendors.

Q: Do you plan other events besides weddings?
A: Our core is Weddings, but we are passionate about event planning, such as pre-wedding events and milestone celebrations (e.g. holiday parties, housewarmings, baby showers, anniversaries, birthdays, graduations, renewing your vows).

Q: Where are you located? Can I just drop by?
A: We are located in Queens, NYC. We are by appointment only. We schedule appointments for your consultations at places and times that are convenient for you; we can meet at the comfort of your own home.
