HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER?
I recommend hiring a Wedding Planner 12-24 months before the big day. This will ensure I am available on your wedding date and allows me to secure Samoa's best wedding suppliers before they get booked out.
I can also manage last-minute weddings, so please contact us to discuss your needs.

MY VENUE ALREADY HAS A WEDDING COORDINATOR SO WHY DO I NEED TO HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER?
A Wedding Coordinator at a venue is often misconceived, as they do not oversee the entire wedding. They manage tasks relating to the venue itself, such as making the venue booking, managing the caterers (if they are in-house) and sometimes the AV requirements. Every other detail is your responsibility to organise, from sourcing and booking the photographer, cake maker and band, to creating the Wedding Day Timeline. This is where we come in, to help you through your wedding planning journey.
