About Event Planners and Wedding Coordinators

Budget - Visit Zola
The budget will basically affect every aspect of the event or wedding. One of the first items to discuss when meeting with clients is how much can be spent. This doesn’t necessarily have to be concrete and some fluctuation is expected but the client will need this first before any decisions can be made.  You will need a wide variety in your portfolio to accommodate to all budgets. Don’t forget to have your fees included so it’s no surprise.

Venues - Visit The Knot
You’ve heard the term location location location. This comes into play at events and weddings as well. The setting and place will determine other outcomes. Some clients want extravagant exotic locations but this isn’t always the case. As with the budget this can make or break a wedding. Part of the benefit of being a member of the National Association of Event Planners is the wide list of venues and locations that have been approved.

Vendors - Visit Wedding Wire
