Frequently Asked Questions
Why hire an experienced Wedding Coordinator instead of asking a friend?
Because we want you (and your friends and family!) to enjoy the day, and an experienced wedding planner knows how to handle anything that may pop up on the day of your wedding. We will coordinate the set-up/breakdown details with your vendors, help you craft the perfect timeline, and share our years of past event experience so that you know what to expect on your big day. Our ultimate goal is for you to relax and enjoy your entire wedding day from start to finish along with your family and friends!
What does a Wedding Logistics Coordinator role look like?
Many people think hiring a wedding coordinator means showing up on the day of the event and making sure everything happens. The reality is that we are working many months in advance to help all the small details fall into place! We do this by:
- Sending you monthly to-do checklists and planning questionnaires;
- Referring trustworthy, professional vendors who fit your wedding vision;
- Answering all of your wedding etiquette and tradition questions;
- Drafting comprehensive vendor timelines and wedding party itineraries;
- Communicating with vendors to confirm arrival times and logistical needs;
- Coordinating your ceremony and rehearsal;
- Supervising and executing wedding day set-up and break-down;
- and so much more!
Do you work with LGBTQ couples?
Most definitely! Chestnut & Vine proudly supports marriage equality. No matter their sexual orientation or gender identity, we want to work with couples who are in love and are excited to marry their best friend.
What is your pricing?
Our pricing for wedding coordination starts at $2100. Average pricing for a quality, experienced day-of, month-of or event management coordinator in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill region ranges between $1700-$2600+, but we do so much more than show up on the day-of! As soon as you book Chestnut & Vine, we begin collecting information from you and stay in touch regularly to make sure your day is planned to perfection. We provide tips, insight and vendor guidance to make certain your experience is easy and fun! The better we prepare you for your wedding day, the better job we will do for you!
Do you offer an Intimate Wedding Package?
Yes! Our intimate wedding package is for weddings with 50 guests or less in which the ceremony and reception take place at the same venue. Pricing starts at $1800, but this package is only available for weddings that occur 5 months or less from the date we are hired.
What sets Chestnut & Vine apart from other coordinators who offer Day-of, Month-of or Event Management services?
We differ from other wedding planners by offering a more comprehensive version of day-of coordination, month-of coordination and event management. While other wedding coordinators may not meet with their day-of, month-of or event management clients until a month or two before the wedding, Chestnut & Vine starts working with you immediately after being booked. We want to gain your trust by getting to know you from the start and expertly guiding you through the entire wedding planning process. We collaborate with our couples to create special moments. The best part is that you will enjoy your wedding day to its fullest because you trust that Chestnut & Vine will take care of everything. Our couples often tell us that stress reduction and time saved is why hiring Chestnut & Vine was the best wedding decision they made. Contact us today for a complimentary consultation!
We have to reschedule our wedding but don’t have a coordinator. Can you help?
Of course! Scheduling your wedding once is time consuming, but your second time shouldn’t be. Chestnut & Vine will save you time and stress by contacting all of your vendors to confirm their availability and finalize your wedding date. If your original vendor is no longer available, we will help you find a comparable vendor who is. Click here for more information on our Wedding Postponement Assistance package.
