The Wedding Coach
How does The Wedding Coach work?
“The Wedding Coach” service gives you a one-on-one meeting with a wedding industry expert to help you solve your wedding planning problems. This service is a fraction of the cost of hiring a full-time or full-service Wedding Planner.
This service is perfect for couples who:
- Prefer the “do-it-yourself” approach but still need some guidance
- Can’t afford a Wedding Planner for the entire wedding planning process
- Have hit a slump in their planning and need a new way forward
- Need help with budgeting and allocating resources
- Require vendor referrals or vendor comparison advice
- Need help with reviewing vendors’ contracts
- Require assistance with their time-lines and wedding planning schedules
- Want assistance with: theme development, programme, speeches, dress selection, etiquette or décor advice
- Need a neutral third party’s opinion and advice
Before coming to your session, you will need to fill out the Needs Assessment Form, so that the Coach gets a clear idea about the problem areas you are experiencing with your planning, budget, guest list size etc. It’s recommended that you come to the consultation fully prepared with your questions and if you would like, email them to The Wedding Coach in advance. Depending on your Needs Assessment Form, the Coach will walk with spreadsheets, handouts, vendor referrals and magazine articles to give you further assistance/inspiration.
Sessions can last between 1 to 2 hours, depending on your needs and budget. Meeting times are flexible since after-work or weekend hours are available. Coaching sessions are not limited to weddings but can include consultations for: birthday parties, dinner parties, anniversary parties and other events.
