FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I know if I even need a wedding planner?
You have to ask yourself how much you want to work during your engagement and wedding day and how much you want to enjoy and celebrate. Is it worth it to you to have some free time, peace of mind, and get to spend quality time with your finance during your engagement, then you will need a wedding planner. What about on your wedding day? Do you want to place centerpieces and set up the guest book table or do you want to get your hair styled peacefully and relax with your bridesmaids? Do you want your family to have to stress and sweat or do you want your mom and dad to be able to dance or enjoy the meal? When we have our complimentary consultation, we’ll get an idea of your personality and vision and be able to advise you on whether a planner is right for you. Ultimately, we want you to be informed, so we can make the best decision for you.
Do you offer payment plans?
We do offer payment plans once you’ve paid your non-refundable retainer, Ask us about this option during your complimentary consultation.
My wedding venue comes with a coordinator. Do I really need to hire one on my own?
A lot of brides find themselves confused about the role of their site coordinator vs. their Wedding Planner. Simply put, as helpful and vital as a site coordinator is, they work for the venue. We work for YOU, the bride. We have your best interest at heart at all times. As your wedding planner, we will work closely with you prior to your big day to fully understand your vision, and work along side you to make it a reality. It is also our role to manage the set up and time line of other contracted vendors such as your photographer, florist, and DJ. This is typically not a job that is assumed by a site coordinator. Again, your venue coordinator is in charge of everything that happens at your venue. You might get some vendor referrals, but he or she is not going to schedule appointments, set up décor, or manage your other pre-wedding details. Your venue coordinator will make sure your venue is ready for you to use, but a wedding planner will make sure your wedding actually takes place the way you want it to. Whether you need the full-service package or a smaller package depends on a number of factors. How busy are you? How much do you want to do on your own? What are your wedding dreams and ideas? We’ll discuss all of these things during our complimentary consultation and help you figure out the right package for you.
How do we know you’re the right wedding planner for us?
NOLA Event Planners, LLC is a full-service, full-time wedding planning and design company. This is not a hobby or a side-job, it is our professional career. Also, we only take a limited number of events per year and we are very specific about the type of bride and groom we want to work with. We are more concerned with the connection between our client and us being a good fit, rather than accumulating a volume of clients. This is why we don’t charge for your initial consultation. It is the time we both get to ask lots of questions. Ready to book?
May we contact past clients about their experience?
Yes, absolutely! Our brides, grooms and their families have become raving fans of our wedding planning services and love to speak to other potential brides about their experience with NOLA Event Planners, LLC. You can also see some of client testimonials on line.

It is our policy to respond to all messages within 24 business hours during business hours. Our goal is to ensure you are always in the loop, feeling heard & confident in the process.
How many weddings do your coordinate per day?

Are all the photos on your website from weddings you’ve worked on?
Absolutely! We’ve been fortunate to work with some pretty amazing photographers and they have been kind enough to share their work with us
How does wedding planning work if we don’t live in the New Orleans area?
A good number of our couples don’t live in the same city as we do, but the wedding planning process is very much the same no matter where you live. The majority of our communication and planning for your wedding will be done over the phone or email whether we lived in the same city as you or not. We’ve worked with many out of town brides in different time zones and can always find a time and method that works.
