Do you only work with certain venues and suppliers?
No. As a Professional Member of the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners it is within their code of conduct that we do not charge commission ensuring couples are therefore offered the right wedding professionals who will provide the right service for each couples particular needs.
Can you offer an “on the day” only service?
Yes. My Wedding Day Management option though, offers so much more than simply 'on the day'.
How much do you charge for a complete planning service?
Complete Wedding Planning is based on 15% of your total wedding budget spend with a minimum fee applicable.
Do you work alone or as part of a team?
As a sole business owner, Weddings By Mary is my blood, sweat & tears and therefore personally building a trusting, professional yet down to earth relationship with all my couples is imperative. However, on the big day itself I may need an additional member of staff to assist and have a great back up team should the need arise.
How will you work with my wedding venue co-ordinator?
Having been a wedding venue manager for over 10 years myself, I truly understand the vital role wedding venue coordinators undertake. It is my job as your wedding planner to work alongside the venue to ensure that together your day is perfect & totally stress free.
Do you plan destination weddings?
Do you offer wedding styling?
I openly admit that I'm not a stylist, But with each wedding ensure that the vision every couples has for their big day is met.
Do you work on a set fee or a percentage basis?
Depending on your specific requirements. No two weddings are the same therefore no two couples needs are the same. The website provides an idea of my services and fees.
Do you have a minimum budget requirement?
Both Complete & Bespoke Wedding Planning options have a minimum fee attached.
