Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
While I"m flexible with your needs, basically brides want two options: Wedding Management and Full-Service Planning. I offer both, and we can talk about your vision of planning your perfect wedding. Wedding Management includes timeline, vendor referrals and management, diagrams, VIP lists, design brainstorming, ceremony structure, rehearsal the night before, and all day on the wedding. Wedding Planning includes all of the above, but means I book your vendors and plan the decor/mood boards, manage your event budget, and includes a lot more meetings. For all of my clients, I handle your linens and rentals as well.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I offer a free, one-hour consultation, which is the best way to get to know someone. I think it's impossible to make the best decision without talking to people face-to-face. You'll get a feel for their style, energy and work ethic immediately. Let's sit and talk about your ideas and how I can help implement them...and maybe enjoy a glass of wine while talking. Once the contract is signed, we will have a "Welcome to the Troupe" meeting where we review the process and discuss your inspiration and goals. Overall, for "management" I provide you with worksheets to complete to fill me in on your planning and goals; we also do a logistical meeting and a design meeting. I prepare and manage your 30-day walk through and rehearsal as well. For "planning" we also do mood board meetings, I will secure your vendor contracts, and work with you on ordering all of your "stuff"...which usually includes cake knife/server, cake topper, card box, welcome sign, parting gifts, wedding party gifts, etc.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have nearly 30 years in event planning, a Bachelor's degree in Public Relations, and a Master's degree in public relations. I started my career in non-profit fundraising events. From there I started creating and producing major television events from trade fairs to formal network dinners. And then I worked for a decade in high-end events for presidents of a major university. Today, I spend my time working with private clients enjoying the fresh spirit each one brings.
