Private Functions:

Whether it be a wedding, baby shower, birthday, anniversary, conference or launch event, we can help. We specialise in assisting our clients with planning, coordinating and styling their perfect event. The first thing about event management recognises that it is not as simple as ‘throwing a party’; the real work is in the details that lead up to the event.

MCO has profound knowledge in hosting and operating your private event. An event brings people together for a common purpose, and we work to ensure this purpose is achieved seamlessly.

The team at MCO coordinate every detail of your private party or function, from the run sheet and venue location to arranging for printed materials and audio-visual equipment. We work with nonprofit organisations, professional associations, hotels and family/friends.

Wedding Planning Packages FAQs

The following are some frequently asked questions about MCO’s full wedding planning services:

1. What is full wedding planning?

This type of wedding plan encompasses the entire wedding process, from start to finish. In other words, a professional planner, such as MCO Events, includes all wedding planning packages that prioritise budget, venue, vendor, guest list, timeline, wedding day, and any last-minute issues.

The wedding planner will be involved in all aspects of the wedding planning process and collaborate with you to make your vision a reality. It is ideal for couples too busy or overwhelmed to handle all the details of their wedding planning process.

2. When should I hire a full wedding planner?

Hiring a professional full-service wedding planner a year before the wedding is recommended—far better if you both hire one after you’ve been engaged. This lets your creative wedding planning team book high-quality vendors and secure the best deals for your wedding dreams.

Hiring ahead of time is also beneficial for unforeseen changes that may arise as the planning process begins.

3. What happens if I need to change the wedding plans?

When making changes, such as changing the timeline or guest lists, communicate with your wedding planner. At MCO Events, we can adjust the plans as needed.

However, depending on what has already been planned, changing your wedding theme may necessitate additional work and potentially additional costs.

4. How much do wedding planning packages cost?

Location, wedding planning packages, level of complexity, and other factors can influence how our team prices the wedding planning process—most full wedding planning costs between $5000 and $10,000.

To be sure of the price for your wedding planning, don’t hesitate to contact our creative team at +61 413 185 088.

5. What services are typically included in wedding planning packages?

A full wedding planning package includes almost all types of services needed for the wedding. To provide you with a more in-depth understanding of the package, this planning service typically consists of creating and managing the couple’s budget, the timeline for the wedding, design & décor, the guest list, etc.

6. What is the difference between full-service and partial-service wedding planning packages?

If you are still determining your ability to plan a wedding, you should hire a full-service wedding planner. You only need to describe the type of wedding you want, and the expert wedding planner will include and execute all of the details.

Otherwise, partial-service wedding planning is for you if you have some wedding planning experience and want to handle certain aspects but still want professional guidance and support in other areas.

7. Can I customise my wedding planning package?

Yes, you can pick and choose which services you want or don’t want. You can tailor the wedding planning packages to meet your specific requirements. For example, if you have already reserved your venue, you may only require assistance with décor.

This can assist you in staying within your budget. You can save money in the long run by selecting only the required services.
