Wedding and Event Decorating
I will not be booking with this couple again. They overcharged me for the services they provided and made false promises. They charged me $1,350 for: 3 tables 3 sequin tablecloths 4 cocktail tables 4 stretch table cloths 5 chafing dishes with spoons Leaves on top of table And donut holder, vase w/sunflower and a few tray dishes. I was told that they would only needed 30 minutes to set up and were bringing people to help. They did not bring extra help and took over 2 hours to set up (with help from a few guests and I). Throughout the process it was hard to communicate. I wasn’t sure who was the point of contact and had to keep repeating myself. I was told that it was a big deal to accommodate my last minute request of adding an additional cocktail table and 5 chafing dishes. Throughout the process, they kept on trying to add more items to up-charge me. I felt like every conversation I had consisted of them charging me more instead of listening to my ideas and vision for the party. I am so happy I have an eye for detail. I was able to make my party look beautiful by purchasing my own products and arranging the displays. They also left their mess behind. I had to ask them to put their boxes away because they were going to leave them by the entrance; huge eyesore! I would expect professionals to take their empty decoration boxes with them, not leave them for guests to see. I put everything in one area so my guest didn’t see any of the open boxes. When they were finished setting up, I asked them kindly, if they think their work was worth $1,400. They replied “we tried our best”. As a business, you need to make sure you are prepared for an event and make sure you make your client happy. For the work that they did, I was not happy at all. They were supposed to put lights over the gazebo to help make the party look more decorated and the lights were broken. They mentioned the lights several times when discussing the party yet they never bothered to test them before the party. Luckily all my family and friends were able to Comfort me. They all believed I was overcharge for there work. They seen what I brought and how I made my party look beautiful. If I was you, I wouldn’t book with this couple. They will overcharge you and make false promises. The pictures showed what they did for the party. Only picture that is missing is the cocktail table. Mind you, my guest helped set up and many of the items on the tables are my own personal things. I was robbed and over charged. I will now be smarter on who I book in the future.Aug 28, 2019VerifiedCal Dream Events & Mior Photo Booth's reply
(Our decor set-up usually needs approximately 2 hrs) Client stated 4pm set up time with party starting at 5pm, which gives us a 1 hour window to set up. We arrived at 3:42 pm but unfortunately location to set up was inaccessible. We waited 27 approximate minutes downstairs with the front desk due to permissible issues. We started actual decor at 4:17pm. Another problem with timing was that there was no way to keep the rooftop door open to go down and bring other items. One person had to set-up while the other had to figure out a way back in, therefore we lost minutes in between. Whilst I was setting up..Client Alexis, asked if I needed to use any of her decor, I did not decline because I remember her saying she wanted to collaborate with some of the items. We do not ask our clients to help us decorate, since that is very unprofessional to do within our business. Instead we helped our client set up desserts and acted as an extra hand to bring boxes up. As for minimal decoration complaint, Client Alexis was previously given different input on party decor and rental but wanted to stay within her budget of $1,150.00. So everything that was provided, was originally planned, not including add-ons. The reason for the price adjustment was because of the last minute add-ons from our client. Which was not an issue. ————————————— •Cost• $1,150 *original* New invoice amount $1,335 $575.00 (original) due 8/24/2019 Price adjustment Add-ons from Alexis •5 chafing dish with serving spoon and warmers $200.00 •Highboy cocktail table $85.00 (linen included) Travel Fee $100.00 which states it in original contract.

Cal Dreams made my wedding day look absolutely beautiful. Everyone loved everything about the party from the food to the amazing decor. I highly recommend Cal Dreams and their team for any event. We had a budget and they worked with that budget and made our day special. Both Alicia and Justin were on point with everything and most importantly they worked with me and my husband throughout the entire process, (we can be picky but they were so patient with us). To those who need a party planner we highly recommend this amazing team! Thank you Alicia and Justin for everything! I will definitely reach out to you when we plan any future events. -happy couple. :)Aug 31, 2019
It’s hard to look for event planners that are easy to contact, reliable, and has the resources to meet your expectations. Cal Dream Events definitely has the capability to exceed all those requirements and much more. I’ve booked a couple of events from them and each time they have decorated uniquely, and that includes for various other occasions that require much more diversity with the decor. With certainty I can say I won’t be needing to look for another event planner anymore!Jul 2, 2019
Picking Cal Dreams Events, was the best decision we made. Justin and Alicia were both so accommodating for my family and I. They went above and beyond for us. They took initiative, had such a positive impact and nothing was a problem. They were easy to contact and everything went smoothly and well as expected. I trusted there instinct completely and I can say I will definitely be working with them again soon!!Jun 26, 2019
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Our pricing is based off of the amount of work our clients need. I’d say our work is “high-end meets reasonable”. We always have our clients best interest in mind especially when it comes down to their budget. Our work ethic is to always go above and beyond and still give amazing deals. So I would say we are quite the catch.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We’d love to get a one on one first, So we can understand our clients needs and wants. That way they can tell us about themselves and the type of event they wish to have us for. We pay attention to all the details, and make sure we get it right the first time!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?We have years of experience, but our company is new to thumbtack. Cal Dream Events will provide stability and professionalism when it comes to proving to our customers that our fresh minds are what’s needed in this type of industry. Everything is constantly evolving. And that’s what we do, we create amazing events but remain in-touch with timeless elegance as well. Our company strives for greatness everyday in everything we do. Our clients are our number one priority. Depending on what types of events we offer. We make sure not to double book and always keep our focus on one client at a time.
