have a burning question?
Here’s a list of frequently asked questions from our couples.
Why should we hire you?
Working with Forever Taeken will naturally give you a sense of peace and calmness during the planning process and on your wedding day. Our goal is to have each couple truly experience each moment, by being mentally present throughout the day. Our team will take your vision and execute it effortlessly with you in mind every step of the way. You will feel in complete control without having to lift a finger on your day.
What wedding planner services do you offer?
We offer Full Service Event Production with Design and Event Management.
Why don’t you offer day-of services?
In order to uphold the integrity of our company, our services start 6-8 weeks out from your wedding date. We want to provide you with quality service you deserve and we cannot give your wedding the attention it needs in one day.
What additional services do you offer?
Our team also plans corporate and social events as well.
Do you charge an initial consultation?
Our initial consultation is complimentary. Once you inquire via the contact, we will set up a 15 minute phone call to get to know each other to see if we are a good fit. We only take a limited amount of weddings each year to ensure that each bride gets the attention they deserve. Once we determine if you are a good fit, then we will set up an in person (if local) meeting or video call to go over the Taeken Bride Experience in depth.
What’s the cost of the average wedding you plan?
Our couples usually spend an average of $200-350 per person on their wedding.
Are there any additional expenses? (Travel Fees: mileage, parking, lodging)
Depending on the location of your wedding day, travel fees may be an additional cost.
How many weddings do you coordinate a day?
We have one coordinator per event per day. We will be fully present on your wedding day with no other distractions.
Are you a socially responsible company?
Yes! We donate a portion of each event to The Children of Promise. Each wedding saves homeless children in India. We believe in giving back and having a business with a purpose.
My venue has a coordinator, do I still need a wedding coordinator?
That is great news, however, the roles of a venue coordinator and the wedding coordinator are completely different. The biggest difference is the venue coordinator is hired by the venue, and they have the best interest of the venue as their primary focus and a wedding coordinator is hired by the couple and have the best interest of the couple as their primary focus. A venue coordinator will not create a comprehensive wedding day timeline from the time you wake up to the time exit your reception, we will. Your venue coordinator will not communicate with all of your vendors ahead of time to make sure everything is in order, we will. We are your biggest support on your day!
Do you take any kickbacks from any vendors?
We do not take kickbacks from any wedding professional. We only provide you with quality recommendations that match your style.
What is your communication policy?
Our office hours are Monday-Thursday 10:00am-4:30pm. You can expect us to get back to you within 1 business day. On the weekends, we are usually working with limited access to email. Our main form of communication is email, which helps keeps everything in once place and is easily accessible to all. For this reason, we do not text our clients. Phone calls must be scheduled in order to ensure efficiency.
Do you have insurance?
Yes, we have General Liability and Professionl Insurance.
What if you’re sick or unable to be there the day of our wedding?
Our team is dedicated and if someone is sick or unable to be there due to an unforeseen emergency, one of our coordinators will step in. If our coordinators are working a wedding the same day, then we have great vendor relationships with other local planners that will step in.
How do payments work?
For Event Management couples - We require a 50% retainer fee (50% of the full payment) upfront along with a signed contract to secure your date. Four weeks prior to your event, the other 50% of the payment is due. For Full Service Event Production, the payment schedule will vary, please inquire.
