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 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.
