WHY SHOULD WE HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER?
A wedding planner is a key asset as you embark on your wedding journey. A planner will take care of all the hundreds of details, leaving you to enjoy your engagement and wedding day. For some, wedding details like: dress, cake, invitations, and favours are simple subjects to address when the time comes to planning the big day. However, for many, the mere thought of it all becomes too much too handle. It can take, on average, over 250 hours to plan a wedding! Most couples find themselves overwhelmed as soon as the planning starts; drowning in the details. Allow us to take over and work seamlessly on every single detail from A to Z.
OUR RECEPTION VENUE COMES WITH A COORDINATOR, DO WE STILL NEED TO HIRE A WEDDING PLANNING SERVICE?
Venue coordinators work for the venue; they are available to answer your questions about the venue and assist you with your venue layout. They are someone you may contact if you need extra reassurance about the details of your wedding venue, however, their loyalty is to the venue. Their tasks do not include all the fine details that go into planning your wedding. Having a wedding planner means complete confidence that all the details are taken care of for you.
DO YOU WORK WITH SPECIFIC VENUES / CONTRACTORS/ VENDORS?
The short answer is no. If you are interested in a venue that is not listed on our site, or have a preferred supplier in mind then we are absolutely open to discussion. Remember this is YOUR day, and YOUR vision. The benefit of working with our recommended venues and suppliers/ vendors is that they have been tried and tested. We only recommend them with more confidence than those we have not collaborated with in the past. That said, we are always happy to work with new venues and vendors, as long as our clients are comfortable with their decision.
WE WOULD LIKE TO HOST A PRE/POST WEDDING EVENT IN GREECE, CAN YOU HELP?
Absolutely! The joy of a destination wedding is that your guests come to celebrate with you for more than one day, so a pre/post wedding event is something we always recommend; a relaxed pizza party, poolside BBQ, Greek meze evening on the beach or an authentic wine tasting afternoon are just some of our suggestions. Similarly, if you're planning a wedding at home and would like to arrange a pre or post wedding event then our services can be tailored to accommodate this.
DO YOU CHARGE AN HOURLY RATE, A FLAT RATE OR A PERCENTAGE OF OUR OVERALL WEDDING BUDGET? -AND DO YOU HAVE A RETAINER FEE TO SECURE YOUR WEDDING PLANNER SERVICES?
We charge a flat rate for our customized wedding planning service. A retainer fee is required to secure our wedding planner & design services. A fee schedule will be tailored to your needs prior to signing a contract.
HOW MANY WEDDINGS OR EVENTS WILL YOU COORDINATE PER DAY?
At Phaedra Liakou Events we only take a limited number of weddings every year - this means that we only do one wedding or event per day per wedding consultant.
HOW MANY ASSISTANTS WILL ATTENT ON MY WEDDING DAY?
One wedding planner and at least one-two assistants will be at your wedding depending on the size of your events. Should you have multiple locations, or a larger guest count more assistants will be appointed.
HOW DO YOU DRESS UP FOR A WEDDING?
For weddings, all wedding planners and assistants will wear professional attire or if specially specified with regards to the dress-code of your events.
