I: Frequently Asked Questions

Do you only cover weddings and events in New York?

Events by Mayven is available to provide services mainly in the the tri-state area – New York (and all the boroughs, including Westchester/ Hudson Valley area), New Jersey and Connecticut. However we are open to travelling outside of the tri-state area for select occasions. 

Do you coordinate a wedding alone?

As Owner & Lead Planner, there’s a certain standard and quality of service that I hold myself and my team to for every client. In order to deliver on that level, and ensure that our clients and their guests are well taken care of, every wedding or event has a lead planner (usually myself), and an assistant coordinator at minimum. Depending on the guest count, number of locations, and other details of the day more coordinators are then assigned.

What’s the difference between your coordinator services and the venue’s coordinator?

The coordinator provided by your venue is solely focused on coordinating the service being provided by the venue, that’s it. As your wedding planner or coordinator we manage the complete day and the multiple players involved. We are with you from hair and makeup through to the last song; ensuring a joyous exit for you and your love, and that break down by all vendors is seamless, and without incident.

What are your rates for the different service packages?

We provide customized quotes for each couple or event based on the unique needs, and details provided during the complimentary consultation call. Each client and the details surrounding their wedding or event – location(s), number of guests, type of event, and so on – is different, and so we handle every one with a personalized approach.

Do you offer payment plans with your packages?

We do offer installmental payment options broken out over the duration of the contract. However, a 30% – 40% deposit is required as at time of booking.

II: More Frequently Asked Questions

Can I book without a consultation call?

We love your confidence in us! The call is necessary to help us learn in as much detail as possible your vision for the day, where you are in the planning process, and the extent of assistance you need from the EBM team. It’s also helpful to get to feel out our energy, and vibe – we tend to become close friends, confidants, and therapists to our couples during the planning process – it’s important that you like us seeing as we’ll be in communication a lot!

Do you charge for the consultation call?

Absolutely not! We understand that being service providers, it’s crucial for our clients to feel comfortable, confident and trusting in the value that we provide to their special day and the only way to experience that prior to booking with us is to connect one-on-one; which is what the consultation call is for.

With the Full Planning or Partial Planning packages do you only work with your list of preferred vendors?

If you’ve already booked a vendor prior to signing on with us, we are more than glad to work with them. If you ask us to make vendor recommendations, we provide you with vendors whose quality of work, and professionalism we can confidently vouch for; but also whose style and price point align with yours. 

Is there a difference between Month-of-Coordination vs Day-of-Coordination?

Both terms are mostly used interchangeably by clients and some industry professionals. For us they mean the same thing. However, to be clear, with this package we don’t just show up and meet with you for the first time on wedding day. We begin weekly check-ins with you 6-weeks prior to wedding day to finalize the details of the day, confirm all bookings, create timeline of the day from bridal prep through to vendor break down, connect with bridal party and key family members, and begin to put your mind at ease as the day draws closer. Final venue walk through with the venue coordinator, and rehearsal coordination are also included in this package.

Why Should We Hire You?

Being a past bride, I understand how much has been invested emotionally, and financially to see this celebration of love come to be. The sacrifices made by you and your love, family and friends to see the day go smoothly and be a success. Because of this, I’m intentional in the service that myself and my team deliver not just to you, but also to your guests. I genuinely care and want to see everyone smiling and having a great time not having to stress about anything. This feeling applies to non-wedding related events as well.
