some common

It's pretty common for most NJ and NYC venues to come with a Venue Coordinator or an Event Coordinator. However, their roles vary venue by venue and it's never the same! Typically, a venue coordinator is responsible for overseeing the set-up, food and beverage, and logistics as it relates directly to the venue. An outside wedding planner will coordinate and manage ALL logistics and design details with your entire wedding team.

With us as your wedding planner or wedding coordinator, our focus is on one thing - YOU! We aim to make your life easier and execute your vision for your big day. We aim to streamline and simplify the jobs of your entire vendor team (including your venue coordinator!). This allows each vendor to deliver on their own offerings at the highest level which results in wedding amazingness for you.

What’s the difference between you and a venue coordinator?

Do you bring an assistant day-of?

Always! Every Petite Planning event will have at least 2 sets of hands working, if not more. When we chat initally to learn about your wedding day, we'll let you know if we think we'll need more than one assistant on hand, to make your dreams a reality!

When in the planning process should we hire you?

As early as feasible for you! If you're reaching out for full or partial planning, we should be one of the first (if not the first!) vendor you book. That will allow you to get the most value out of your package, as we can help guide you through the entire planning process. 

For our month-of coordination package, even though work won't really start till closer to your wedding day, we recommend reaching out at least 6 months prior to your wedding date, to ensure we have availability. We do have couples that book us a year or more out, so make sure you reach out so we lock in your date!

Do you plan other events, such as rehearsal dinners, welcome parties, etc.

We certainly do! Our Full-Planning package can be customized to include other wedding weekend events as well. We also can help plan and coordinate non-wedding weekend events such as engagement parties, bridal showers, and more!

Where does your pricing start?

Our starting pricing can be found on our Services page! We're always open and transparent about our pricing, so feel free to always ask for more info and we'll be happy to provide. 

Are you insured?

Indeed we are! We happily will provide our Certificate of Insurance to all venues when prompted. We also will take on the task of collecting the insurance certificates from your other vendors as well so you don't need to!

Kind Words from Past Couples:

Amanda and her team were with me every step of the way with every question I needed answered. I booked her on the spot and have no regrets. She made sure every vision I had was put into place and made sure my dream wedding came true (even having to make changes with COVID) I couldn't have done it without her.

Kind Words from Past Couples

Amanda did an amazing job coordinating our wedding day! Not only was she a huge help the day of, but she answered all our questions in the months leading up to our wedding, checked in with all our vendors to confirm times weeks away from our wedding, built an entire timeline so we didn’t have to and kept us on task with pictures all day. We are SO thankful for Amanda and the stress she took off our shoulders so we can enjoy our wedding day
