What is included in your free consultation & how does it work?
We offer our clients a free consultation for several reasons:
- It’s a chance for you to get to know us! We understand how important it is for you to know and trust us, to meet the people behind the online screen.
- It’s also a chance for us to get to know you and understand a little bit about your personality so we can create and deliver an event which reflects this!
- It gives us both a chance to talk over the requirements and expectations of what Conifer will deliver. After gaining an understanding about what you want we will be able to draw up a realistic proposal with some of our design and style ideas reflecting your budget.
- And last but not least… you will receive a luxury Conifer Goodie bag!
What size of weddings do you organise?
Whether your wedding party is 50 or 500 we can work with you. Our weddings team have been planning weddings for over 10 years and have organised large and small weddings.
Is a wedding planner expensive?
No. As a guide price, a wedding planner would cost approx. 10-20% of your overall wedding budget. The value a wedding planner can bring can be enormous.
Depending on the level of support required your wedding planner can be the difference of your wedding going ahead smoothly or not. Your wedding planner will become your closest friend during this special period of your life, someone you can fully trust and rely on to provide you with the best advice, recommend the best wedding suppliers and be on hand to deliver your day with no glitches. We all live very busy lives sometimes juggling family life and work, therefore your wedding planner will provide you with invaluable support.
Do you charge for the initial consultation?
No, the initial consultation is free!
Will I have a planner at my event on the day?
This is entirely up to you. With regards to weddings we offer On The Day Support which means we will be there to co-ordinate the entire day for you start to finish, making sure everything runs seamlessly.
When it comes to events such as parties/baby showers/corporate launch events, we will arrive early and ensure everything is set up to our standard, and make sure everything is good to go before leaving you to enjoy your Conifer Delivered Event. We will be on call all day if you need to get in touch for any reason.
How much communication will we have with the planner?
This is entirely your decision. We have 2 wedding packages which include various numbers of face to face meetings and site visits. However when it comes to phone calls/skype calls there is no limit. We are always on call to deal with any questions and queries!
How far in advance should I hire a planner?
This depends on the scale of your event or wedding. If you want us to plan your wedding from start to finish including venue selection then we would recommend 24 months. However, if you just want help with the reception planning we would be able to do this as little as 3-6 months prior.
Do Conifer Events only organise weddings?
No. We have an events team dedicated to planning all types of parties and events.
We organise a variety of corporate events from launch parties, Christmas Fayres, charity balls to birthday parties, engagement parties and special occasions. Our events team are super creative and look forward to working with you. Drop us an email with your party ideas and our team will get started.
How many venues & suppliers do you work with?
Our weddings team work with over 50 venues throughout Scotland and we have around 30 preferred suppliers within our network. We have many industry contacts and will call upon many more suppliers should there be a requirement.
Do Conifer Events work with LGBT couples?
Of course. We have worked previously with a number of couples from the LGBT community and we continue to do so.
Do Conifer Events organise Asian Weddings?
Yes, we have experience in planning Asian Weddings with our first Asian wedding booked for 1st August 2020. We have been working with our couple for nearly 12 months now to support them in planning their special day.
If I were to book a wedding planner, can I still plan some areas of my wedding too?
Of course. Our partial wedding planning service allows just that, although our couples are always still 100% in control of their wedding. Your wedding planner is here to support you where possible and if you wish to continue to plan certain areas of the day yourself, this is no problem at all.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, card & PayPal.
How many years’ experience do Conifer Events have in the wedding and events industry?
We have over 10 years believe it or not! Our team are very creative with a wealth of industry knowledge and contacts.
Do you cater to specific religions?
We cater to any religion. We have a wealth of industry experience and have worked with couples from a varied range of religious backgrounds. Whether it be Hindu, Catholic, Islamic or Pagan. We cater to all.
