Does hiring Linen + Lilac mean I get two planners?
Yes! Unless we inform you otherwise, we will both be part of your design + planning process. We will also both be on site for your wedding day, giving you two wedding professionals to help ensure a flawless wedding day!
What is the average overall budget for your clients?
While we love doing a variety of events that range in overall budget, our typical wedding client's budget is $95,000+.
How many clients do you take a year?
As a boutique design + planning company, we pride ourselves on providing high quality, personalized service, providing you with a truly bespoke planning process. We limit our calendar to 8-10 weddings per year. We never take more than one wedding per weekend and very rarely take back-to-back wedding weekends. When your special day rolls around, we are truly present and all yours!
How do you determine pricing for full and partial planning?
Every quote is based on the unique logistics of your wedding and will vary depending on size and complexity of the event, length of contract, number of vendors, scope of work, and individual requests. Head to our offerings + investment page to learn more and complete our contact form to get in touch + set up your complimentary consultation. Planning something small? We adore intimate celebrations and have a special package for SF City Hall elopements + intimate weddings of under 35 people.
Do you offer month-of coordination?
Helping clients design + envision their wedding day one of the things we love most about weddings. For just a bit more investment, Partial Planning gives you the essential design services in addition to what we have always offered for month-0f coordination. Head to our offerings and investment page to read more about our 2019 packages. Fill our our contact form to get in touch and set up your complimentary consultation today!
How can I find your preferred vendor list?
We have a specially curated list of high quality, trusted industry professionals. Instead of sending you a PDF with a list of names and numbers, we hand pick the best vendors for your wedding aesthetic, venue, + budget. Of course clients are always free to select a vendor that is not on our list- we love meeting and creating relationships with new vendors as well!
Do you only work at specific venues?
We are preferred vendors at the Kunde Family Winery, Claremont Club + Spa, A Fairmont Hotel, + The Ritz-Carlton SF. We welcome the chance to work at those gorgeous + iconic venues; however, exploring new venues helps fuel our creativity and we would be happy to work with you at any venue of your choosing!
Will you negotiate with vendors for me?
We thoughtfully curate the best vendors for your wedding, keeping in mind your style and your budget. We carefully review contracts and work only with highly trusted professionals so that you know you are getting the best quality product at a fair price.
Where do you do meetings?
We are based in Lafayette but are happy to travel to other East Bay locations or SF for meetings. When in conjunction with site visits, we may meet with you elsewhere. We are also happy to do phone or video conference calls if that works better for your schedule or location.
Do you charge a travel fee or require a hotel room?
For venues 50+ miles away from Lafayette a travel fee will be included in your package price and kindly request lodging the night before the wedding. For venues 70+ miles away from Lafayette, lodging is requested for the night of the wedding as well.
