Wedding FAQ

If you have any additional questions that you do not see listed, please contact us and we will answer then personally.

Why do I need a wedding planner?

We understand that our couples are busy and life can be overwhelming. With work and play, most couples often do not have the time to research venues and suppliers, attend consultations or keep track of various wedding details. It makes sense to employ some extra hands. We are industry professionals with a wealth of knowledge of what worked and what did not to avoid any costly mistakes. Have everything under control, but need some help pulling it all together? We offer full, day-of and partial coordination services. Visit the Wedding Services section for more information!

What do you do on the wedding day?

Each wedding has its own unique elements and we are not ones to be held down by tradition just for the sake of it. Generally, we start the day by arriving at your ceremony venue to meet your suppliers and begin set up. A Coordinator is with you throughout the wedding day and stays until the end of the reception to make sure that everything is collected.

How are you different than the Wedding Coordinator or Banquet / Catering Manager provided by the venue?

The main difference between a Coordinator provided by the venue and us, is that the venue Coordinator usually looks after their staff, the venue, meal service, etc. while we are here to assist the wedding couple and make sure that all the vendors are there on time and set up the way that you envisioned it.

How do I decide which Wedding Coordinator will be best for me?

Deciding which Wedding Coordinator to hire can be a stressful task. Go with your gut. Make sure that you feel comfortable working with them and be confident that they will help you achieve your vision. Remember, you will be spending 6 to 18+ months with them, so you want to choose a Coordinator that you get along well with.

How do we book your services?

After our consultation, a personalized quote will be sent to you to be reviewed. We require a 50% deposit along with the signed contract to hold the date and the remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the wedding day. We accept cheque, cash or bank draft.

Can you save us money?

The goal of our service is to provide you with a wedding that meets your needs, fits your budget and (hopefully) exceeds your expectations! With careful research, we will help you choose the perfect mix of suppliers to maximize your budget and avoid any costly mistakes.

Do you receive commissions on referrals?

We do not receive any commissions or kick backs from our vendors. We recommend our vendors, because we love the work that they do. It’s that simple.

How do you charge for your services?

Each wedding is different and each quote that we provide is customized to your event. Factors that we consider include: the number of locations, what services you require, destination or local wedding, event size, number of suppliers, how much set up / take down is required, number of activities prior to and following the wedding as well as the overall logistics.

Do you have décor for rent?

Unfortunately, we no longer carry rentals. We are happy to assist you with the décor and theme development of your wedding day and recommend suppliers that can provide the items you are looking for.

How do we contact you?

To schedule a consultation, please send us an email to info@lotusevents.ca with your names, wedding date, wedding suppliers and venue(s) and any other pertinent information regarding your wedding day. If you prefer to speak over the telephone, please contact us at 604.379.1087.
