Still have some questions about the wedding planning process?
Below are our most common questions we get from couples. If these don’t answer your questions, feel free to reach out, we’d love to connect!
What sets Oh My! Occasions apart from other planners?Above anything else, we want to know your story. Every couple has their own unique adventure, we want to make sure your story shines through on your special day. One of our favorite parts of the process is meeting you for the first time. Getting to know what is important to you allows us to create a wedding as beautiful as your love story. When it comes to the event management side, we do much more than coordinate timelines and vendors. We truly go above to provide an Oh My reaction all day long! From making sure your bridal suite is stocked with food and beverages to keep your energy high for the rest of the day, to doing a deep clean of your bridal suite to ensure your getting ready pictures are free of miscellaneous items like remote controls and menus.
While making sure our couples are taken care of, we manage the logistics of the event space. We are constantly fielding vendor calls, reviewing floor plans, and triple checking that no detail is left unaddressed.
Do I really need a planner?The focus on your wedding day should be on you and your fiance. We’ve handled wrong cakes being delivered, buttons popping off tuxedos, and full out tantrums thrown by flower girls (and sometimes other guests!) Although a wedding planner may not be necessary, we handle all the details, and all of the hiccups. We come fully prepared so you don’t have to! A full service planner, or even a day of coordinator has the job of directing vendors and handling any last minute problems so you never have to know anything went wrong. A wedding planner addresses the issue and fixes the problem while the bride, groom and family enjoy the day.
I want to be very involved in planning my event. Do I still need a planner?Yes! For couples who prefer to take an active role in planning their events, we offer partial planning and wedding management packages that get us involved later in the process. When choosing our wedding management package you can expect to touch base with us about 2 months prior to your event. This allows you to finalize your vendor selections and wedding details on your own with the confidence that everything will be taken care of on your event day!
What does a planner provide that I just can't find online?As a wedding planner specializing in events throughout the Fort Lauderdale and Miami areas, we’ve worked with some of the best vendors in the industry. We work with these vendors frequently, we know who to contact to work within your budget, style, and venue location. We help you narrow down your vendor selections based on your budget BEFORE you get struck with sticker shock. We’re here to help make this planning process easier!
A family member offered to plan my wedding for free. Why should I pay for a planner?Planners put hours and hours of work into your event. We do extensive research. We negotiate. We budget. We design. We negotiate some more. We drive to and from site visits. Plus we do it all with a smile. We schedule and attend meeting after meeting to select your linens, papery, menu items, flowers, and more…. then we do it all again until you are happy. We are certified professionals in the event industry. A magician doesn’t reveal his secrets, and neither do we. A planner is the best investment you can make for your big day.
When should I start looking for a wedding planner?The answer to this question depends on the type of planner you are looking for. If you need someone to walk you through every step of the process, you’ll need the full service package. You can contact us as soon as he pops the questions and we will be happy to provide guidance.
