Answers to some frequently asked questions
Do you offer Day-Of Coordination?
The answer is a resounding, NO! Truly, “Day-Of” Coordination is a myth and does not exist. No one is so magical that they can come in the day of your wedding and make all the moving parts work seamlessly. Event planning takes months of time, effort and expertise.
Will you Travel?
HECK YA! We love to travel. Most of our events are in Los Angeles, Palm Spring and Ventura County, but we will travel anywhere with an additional travel fee. Weddings more than 50 miles from our HQ as well as out of state weddings require air travel and hotel accommodations.
My Venue Provides A Coordinator. Do I Still Hire An Event Planner?
Venue Coordinators are there for the venue, not the couple. They are not responsible for the months of planning, helping to run the ceremony, decorating the site or keeping track of the timeline throughout the night. Venue Coordinators and Wedding Planners are both VERY important positions but serve completely different purposes. Check your contract and talk to the venue to find out details of what the Venue Coordinator is participating in. Most venues welcome and will encourage you to bring your own Wedding Planner.
Do you plan events other than weddings?
Although we pride ourselves on our wedding planner services, any place where there is a group of people, food and good times, there we will be. Proposals, Rehearsal dinners, retirement parties, birthdays, anniversaries, corporate events, baby showers, business openings, gender reveal parties, bachelorette festivities- you dream it, I can create it!
How Many Planners Are Included In Your Packages?
In any given Anything But Gray Events package, there will be 1 Planner and at least 1 assistant at your event. Additional assistants might be added depending on the number of guests, services and multiple venue locations. We can customize and tailor to your event needs.
