Hello! We’re so glad you stopped by to check out The Wedding Connection NW! We couldn’t be more excited to have you consider the excellent wedding planning services we offer.
Whether you’re not sure where to begin or you feel like you’re in over your head or you don’t have time to plan the details – we’re delighted to be of assistance! Probably your first question is: What are our fees? They are based on the services you require and the amount of time it will take to perform them. We can be more specific once we’ve had an initial complimentary consultation, but generally, our rates range from $1500 – $2500, with $1900 being the average. Of course, this all depends upon the venue you choose, if it’s for both the ceremony and reception, if it’s at one location or two, size of the guest list and wedding party, and if we’ll need to have a wedding assistant.
Once this is determined, we want to jump in and help you with your planning and vision as soon as we can. That will allow us time to know you so that we can suggest the best solutions and service to you and your family. In our opinion, a “day-of coordinator” is not very practical for us to be able to offer you the best experience, so the sooner you bring us on board, the better for you!
Our services always include reviewing vendor contracts; creating detailed, customized timelines for vendors and a day-of schedule for wedding participants; planning and running the rehearsal, whether or not your officiant is able to participate. Each key stakeholder in your wedding day is personally contacted to gather pertinent information for designing the framework of your day. In addition, venue site walk-throughs that include logistics, floor plans and meetings with venue staff are included in the pricing.
We oversee the entire event from start to finish, and most importantly, problem-solve any unforeseen circumstance that might arise.
As your planning gets underway, we can recommend talented and reliable businesses in the industry that you may need to provide additional services.

Vendor and guest lists will pile up and many will have questions leading up to the event and on the day itself. Divert the endless questions to your wedding coordinator.
Don't spend every spare minute organizing your wedding. Coordinators will work with you to get everything done before and during your wedding. Get some sleep and enjoy yourself instead of worrying.
Stick to your budget. Coordinators can allocate funds correctly while finding the best and most realistic solutions.
Trying new things is great but not when it comes to organizing your wedding. Experience goes a long way in making a wedding run smoothly.
Planning a wedding miles away can be especially difficult. A wedding coordinator can be there in person to bridge the gap and guide you from wherever you are.
Venue coordinators will only help with so much. Wedding coordinators are responsible for bringing all of your details to reality.
Coordinators know the vendors in the area and find the ones that will provide quality service within your budget.
A neutral party can be a huge asset when making decisions. Coordinators can dissolve issues quickly and effectively.
With the rise of wedding blogs and Pinterest, planning is becoming more detail oriented. A professional will make sure each of your elements is incorporated and set to go.
