- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I try to make my prices very fair. I put a lot of time and energy into every detail of every event I do as though it were my own. I believe it's possible to have an event that looks beautiful and is very detailed without costing a fortune.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My process for working with a new customer is to speak with them, either on the phone or in person to hear exactly what they're envisioning their event to look like, specific details I should know as well as their budget. I also like to tell them about my event planning experience so that they feel comfortable hiring me based on my expertise. I then put together a quote describing what I would do for them, including a timeline and a price.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been planning events, both simple and very elaborate, for over 20 years. My clients have all found me by word of mouth or after going to an event that I planned and got in touch with me to plan their event.
