Q: How soon should I get a response from you if I text or email you?

Darlene: You should get an almost instantaneous response. If you don't, please re-send the message or call me. I do my best to respond right away.

Q: How do I get your packages?

Darlene: Just send me an email with the following details: Date, Time & Venue of Ceremony, and Time & Venue of Reception. You may also reach me via my Facebook pages:

Q: What packages do you have?

Darlene: Packages are: full planning, a hybrid OTD package that is like semi-full planning, and stand-alone emceeing; note though that coordination packages can either come with or without emceeing. 

Q: Why do you have online meetings in your packages?

Many couples live abroad. Thus, it's better to have online meetings as option. That way, they can plan with me as soon as they are ready, not as soon as their landing here in Manila when they already have too many tasks in their to-do list. (People caught on that it’s just as effective... you see, because of the pandemic, everyone has had to explore the option of using online means to meet.) 

Q: Why do you have only 2 coordination packages?

Darlene: Over time, I noticed that the semi-full planning package usually ends up being like a full planning package. It’s difficult to tell couples about boundaries when they are already booked. I don’t want to short change my full planning clients as well. Thus, I figured, best to just offer two kinds of packages — a full planning package and a hybrid OTD package. 

Q: What happens after I book you for coordination? 

D: We will have a meeting to assess where you are in terms of planning. If you’re on a full planning package, I will start the supplier inquiries based on the needs and requirements mentioned in our meeting so I can give you options re whom to book. All options would be highly recommended suppliers. If you’re on my silver package (hybrid OTD), we will still have a meeting so I can give you recommendations re possible suppliers you can contact, and other pieces of advice to ensure a smooth flow on the day. 

Q: Who will make the timeline? 

D: I will make that for you if you are a coordination client. That’s part of my workbook. 

Q: How do you customize the programme planning process?

Darlene: I do send you a workbook (in excel) with a sample programme, possible games, and other needed tabs; however, as you read through the sample programme with its questions, tips, and suggestions, you will most likely come up with ideas on how to personalize the programme contents. I will, of course, give my suggestions as well. We can tweak programme contents to fit themes and the kind of feel/atmosphere you want on your day.

Note: I send the workbook to all clients. Games are also part of the programme. These games are meant to stretch the time for those who are editing your SDEs. However, if you’d like to do away with games and explore replacements, I would be more than happy to suggest other strategies. 

Q: So I don't need to follow the sample programme?

Darlene: Absolutely! You can change the sequence, add other items you wish to have in your programme, etc. I had a couple who decided on really customizing their games, and we really spent time talking about how to execute so that on the day, it would really be a hit among the guests.

Q: But what if what I'm adding or revising is not really ok?

Darlene: I will take your venue layout, your gown, your food service, and typical guest behaviour into consideration while analyzing what you want to have on your big day. So definitely, I will give you the pros and cons of your chosen sequence of events, the games you'd like to add, etc.

Q: What languages do you speak during the programme?

Darlene: Most couples request for a mix of English and Filipino so that all the guests will be able to relate to the contents of the programme. I am comfortable with speaking in English only or in combining both languages -- Filipino and English. I've also handled Filipiniana weddings and spoke in Filipino all throughout.

Q: What was your profession prior to joining the wedding industry?

Darlene: I graduated from Assumption College with a Bachelor of Secondary Education degree, major in English. I taught Reading at an exclusive school for girls, where I eventually ended up handling the Intermediate English teachers for four years. I went to the Ateneo de Manila University and finished a Master of Arts degree in English Language and Literature Teaching. 

Q: Where did you graduate? What were your awards?

Darlene: BSE - English, Assumption College; MA-ELLT, Ateneo de Manila

Modesty aside, I graduated Summa Cum Laude and was awarded as one of the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines. It was through the said search that I met my husband, Emman Salazar.
