FAQs


What sets McLean Events apart from other planning companies?

You never get just one person’s opinion, time, or effort! We take a collaborative team approach. Behind the scenes, our team works together on all angles of each stage of the process on your behalf. Each of our team members is a specialist with a unique, dedicated role they spearhead for your wedding. You also never get a "standard" wedding design. We have a penchant for the unexpected. We’re always asking, “What can we do that’s different than anything we’ve done before?” We imagine something delightfully innovative just for the couple with each wedding we design. And, finally, you'll never receive a design proposal for something that's kitschy, overdone, or not tasteful. We like to say our style is understated opulence — but with over-the-top intentionality.

We do not offer Day of Coordination packages, however we are happy to refer you to a trusted vendor who does


Do you travel?

What is the average budget of an EME Client?

Do you work from a preferred vendor list?

We are planning from out of town, is that ok?

Yes! In fact, a large percentage  of our clients live outside this area. We work with you to act as your liaison, maximize your planning time when you are in town, and offering technology based tools during the planning process (ie: skype, FaceTime, Client Portal, and E-Contracts).
