    Hiring Angelia was a great decision! She has saved us so much time and money already and we are so glad she will be there on the day of the event to keep things running smoothly.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I have what I like to call a sliding fee scale. I put together different levels of budget and priced my fee accordingly. For instance the first level is 0 to $5,000 the next level is $5,001 to $10,000 I then set my deposit and because I work with all budgets I wanted this fee to be affordable, so I went along each level and set a small deposit. The deposit is intended to save their date along with the signing of the contract and this does come off of the balance of the fee. The remainder of the fee is then broke down into payments from the date of signing to 30 days before the date of their event. Another way I make wedding affordable is I build a budget for the bride based on everything that she would like to have and the budget that she has available. I set her a timetable as to when she needs to pay what, along with when she needs to pay my fee payments. Or some Brides choose to put my fee and their budget amount together in one and divide the entire thing into payments. Then I disperse the funds to the Venue, vendors, ect. as the payments come in, then they do not worry about when to pay what, plus they have the bonus of not being stressed out because they know everything is taken care of.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      The process usually goes like this, the bride or the couple contact me, ask a few questions and once they get a feel for my personality and ideas as well as my business practice, we then set up a consultation. Consultations are always free, and because I cover and travel a vast area to do events, sometimes the initial consultation or some of the consultations in between the first one and the date of the event are done over the phone. Once the bride has placed her deposits, and signed her contract, we will then begin to discuss what her vision is for her day and any ideas that she has,a And the things that she wants incorporated into it. At this point I head to the office and begin to lay out a plan of my vision for the day based on her information, and then I build the budget for what it's going to cost to get us there. The next step after building the budget is to have another consultation where we go over the budget in detail as to what everything is going to cost, my ideas, making sure that she likes my ideas or maybe that she wants me to throw something else out there idea wise, and then once we decide that the budget and plan works for them or is within the budget that they already had in mind we both sign off on it. At this point I go about finding the venue and vendors, setting up meetings with them to make sure of that my couple likes and agrees with the choice, negotiating contracts, getting the decorations and getting everything organized for the day! Some brides on the other hand choose to give you a budget amount, the colors that they like, and if they have one a theme. If they do not have a theme, I talk with them for awhile to get a mental vision of what theme or style would work best with the vision they have. Then I'm off and running to plan and pull it all together while they sit back relax and show up the day of the wedding with full time, that I have executed their perfect wedding day!
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I studied wedding and event planning at Ashworth College. It's a pretty extensive program on not only planning out and executing the decoration and management of the event itself , but also how to set my pricing, build a budget, etiquette, how to do weddings of different religions, the different styles of wedding dresses and how they best fit what figure, right down to how to advertise my service.
