We’ve put together a collection of the most commonly asked questions. If you have a query that we haven’t covered, please contact us HERE – we’d love to answer it for you.
wedding planner or wedding stylist – what is the difference?
a Wedding Planner will manage the logistical side of your wedding – what needs to be booked and when, what time should vendors arrive, has everything been paid? A Wedding Stylist will go on a journey of discovery with you to create a vision that mirrors the wedding you’ve always dreamed of! Here at The Original Wedding Company, we are very lucky as we are experienced and trained in both professions.
how do you charge – per hour or do you charge a percentage of the budget?
we have set fees which are agreed upon before we undertake any work with you. Most of our packages have a set fee which may change should more staff or travel be required. We do not base our fees on how much you will spend on your wedding or how many guests you will have.
