WHO'S BEHIND LILI & CO.?
Hi! I'm Liliana, founder and Principal Planner at Lili & Co. I've been planning weddings and events since 2011 and I love every minute of it! It's really the only time when I like to keep spreadsheets around and I can spend hours in front of the computer putting together vision boards. Spending hours on Pinterest for research purposes doesn't feel so bad anymore! I have planned weddings from 40 to 200 guests and I have worked closely with hundreds of wedding vendors in Vancouver in the last few years. I love creative and artsy projects, I'm a perfectionist when it comes to details and I like to coach people to stay on track. Let's meet for a coffee and chat about your wedding plans. I look forward to meeting you :)
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PLANNING & COORDINATION?
Once you have your vendors picked out and a plan of how you want the day to unfold, we handle the logistics and details on the actual event day so you can relax and enjoy your day.
The coordinator will be involved a month or so prior to the event so she can get up to date with who's in charge of each part of the wedding. Going over contracts, getting the contact information of everyone involved and introducing herself as the main point of contact for any issues is how you hand over your plans to us and we take over. We also go over any details that may have been missed in the planning process. After all, you haven’t done this before. A detailed timeline of the event will be designed and shared with all parties to get everyone on track so there is no rushing on the day of. The coordinator leads the team to ensure everything is organized and runs smoothly from start to finish. Coordination packages also include full ceremony rehearsal.
If you haven't planned a large scale event before, getting help with planning your big day is the best option. The planner joins your team at the beginning of the process and will be the primary contact between you and the vendors. Planners act like a Wedding Coach; helping you stay within your budget while delivering the look and feel you dream of. Planning packages also include full coordination on the day of the wedding/event.
WHEN DO WE START WORKING TOGETHER?
This depends on the the service that you choose. Coordination services begins at least 60 days prior to your big day. Full Planning services begin as soon as you want to start planning, usually about 12 months before the wedding, 4 months before wedding related events.
HOW MUCH IS A WEDDING PLANNING SERVICE?
This depends on the size of the wedding (guest count) and the stage of planning you are in. Planning packages start at $1500.
HOW MUCH IS A WEDDING COORDINATION SERVICE?
Coordination for the month of the wedding (including 2 coordinators on the Day Of) starts at $950 and vary depending on the size of the wedding.
WHAT DO YOUR DESIGN SERVICES INCLUDE?
We get a good idea of what your vision is even (if you may not know it yet!) by learning about you as a couple, your love story and anything else that we can bring in to the wedding itself. We create a story board for inspiration and you may choose to be as involved as you like in this process. Once we have a clear idea of how the wedding will feel we provide you with a thorough list of what you'll need to make it happen. You may choose to take this to your Decorator or you can work with a planner to help you bring it to life.
Wedding design packages start at $550. Wedding related event designs start at $300.
