Wedding and Event Decorating
When I first met Tracy and told her my budget, I expected her to bail out on me like every other decorator I had spoken to. But she made me feel at ease even with my ridiculously low budget. And over the next couple of weeks, she came up with beautiful centerpieces that looked liked they cost thousands of dollars. Her sense of decor is amazing! She transformed the boring hall i had rented into a beautiful, romantic setting! And her team were just as down to earth as she is, very attentive. Made me feel special in every way they could. I am thankful for the day I came across her page on Thumbtack :) I would definitely recommend her for a worry free event coordinating and decorating services.Jun 4, 2015VerifiedDevoted to Your Event's reply
Thank you Felicia, you were a STAR client and my team and I totally enjoyed serving you and your wonderful husband. My goal was to assist you in realizing your dream wedding event that was within your budget. I was honored to serve you and will always be here when you are ready to host without the hassle. God bless you and your union!
We found Devoted to Your Event after having fire our previous planner. The difference between Tracy's service and our original planner was night and day. You couldn't ask for a more professional, organized or dedicated individual. Our wedding day was flawless. The special touches that she added received a lot of compliments. We didn't have to worry about anything other than enjoying our wedding day. I would most certainly hire and recommend Tracy, Devoted to Your Event, in the future.Oct 3, 2015
My experience with Tracy Pope was great. She was easy to work with to get what I wanted for my event. The centerpieces and inspirational thought in a picture frame on each table was awesome. Everything was beautiful. The price was well within my budget? I would highly recommend her.Dec 21, 2015

Devoted to Your Event was hired to decorate The Grove, a restaurant in Upper Marlboro for the Oak Creek Community Annual HOA Adult Holiday party. Ms. Pope was provided with a vision and she made that vision come to life. As an HOA committee, we are responsible to put on wonderful events as well as show fiscal responsibility for 800+ home community. Ms. Pope's services allowed us to have a beautiful party and stay within our respective budget. Ms. Pope and her staff were timely, kind to all they encountered, hard working and diligently transformed the area from a regular restaurant to a lavish posh club-like atmosphere perfect for adults. Ms. Pope provided us with holiday lighting, holiday foyer decor, ceiling swags, tablescapes, red carpet upon entrance and much more. She also provided us with additional vendors (i.e, photography) that complimented the night The social committee of Oak Creek highly recommends the services of Ms. Pope and plan to utilize her services at an upcoming event in the new year.Dec 13, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes, I have a standard pricing system for wedding coordination. It is not a complicated pricing system, everything is cut and dry depending on which package they select. As far as decor, I charge 15% of the clients total for that service.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to establish rapport to ensure we are a good fit. Initial consultation is free. Once a client agrees to work with me, an agreement is established and the deposit is paid, we agree on a time to meet regularly to ensure all areas are covered and a system is establish on how service will be provided to the client. On the day of the event, the client is fully confident their day is going without a hitch and they can relax and enjoy.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have an MBA from Trident University, a certificate in entrepreneurship from FSU, I received my weddings and event planning certification from the Lovegevity Wedding Planning Institute, and Excelsior College. My event certification is from iwedglobal. And I am currently an MTA student majoring in event and meeting management with George Washington University. I constantly take training in the field, read on current trends, listen to other established professionals, communicate with potential clients, attend networking events, bridal and trade shows, subscribe to wedding and event planning news, operate my own blog and volunteer in my community all while holding down a full time job as a Contract Specialist so I bring contracting and negotiation skills to you as well.
