i needed a party planner who could give me options and show me ideas about xyz, etc. Xclusive Services was helpful when i would ask her to find out about this place or that place, but i was finding all the places. in the end, i felt like she was just a close acquaintance i was paying to bounce ideas around and i could do that with an actual friend/family. i wanted check-lists, and agenda ideas, layout options, a list of venues, etc. just need to work on the business side of it, she's got the personable side working for her.Jan 15, 2019VerifiedXclusive Services's reply
Hi Jennie! I’m sorry to hear your expectations weren’t exactly met while we worked together. To be fair, when you initially hired me you made it clear you were strictly looking for someone to help you source a venue for your party. We hadn’t a couple of conversations in which ideas/decor options were brought up but decided that bridge would be crossed once we got to it- if we did. At that point, I provided you with numerous venue options, all of which I contacted and attempted to negotiate an itinerary with a fair price as per your budget. While I was doing this, you were searching for your own venues which is absolutely fine. At the end of it all, I will always favor an option my client presents because they are presenting it from a reason of liking and it is my job to respect that. Agendas, layout etc were not necessary for venue sourcing. At least not until we got to a point where intricate details were involved to execute our plan to make this event a success. Thank you for your review nonetheless. I appreciate all feedback and will continue to make improvements where necessary.
Trisha and her partner Jamaal did day of planning for me and my wife's marriage party and they were by far the best investment we made. We didn't think we would need a planner since we weren't doing a full wedding and just a party, but as soon as we met with them we realized how much value and help they would provide. In addition to managing and coordinating all of the vendors, they offered insightful guidance as to how to set up the space, additional decorations to consider and helped us think through the flow of the entire night. Trisha and Jamaal were very responsive to our needs, managed any challenges with vendors and made sure we were comfortable with every decision. At the actual event, they were on top of everything, ensuring my wife and I could focus on enjoying ourselves. We wouldn't have been able to pull it all off without them.Oct 31, 2019Xclusive Services's reply
Congratulations again to you both!!❣️ Thank you again for having us be a part of your special day ☺️
Trisha and her team were exceptional. She and her team helped me decorate the dessert table, set-up all of the food and prep the bar. We had our first-ever house party with 50 guests and Trisha and her team helped keep the party going and flowing. No one was without a drink in their hand and the team helped clean up throughout the evening. I highly recommend them and can't wait to book them for another party at my house.Nov 11, 2018VerifiedXclusive Services's reply
❣️❣️💕 thank you so much for your kind words Gina! We had a blast and look forward to serving you again 😊
Trisha! We salute both you and Jamaal for sticking by our side straight through till the end. Everything was BEAUTIFUL and for the most part seamless from our perspective. Together you made our vision come to life! You certainly kept us on task with your spreadsheet, emails, texts and follow up phone calls... lol but most of all, you were more than just our planners you were more like family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts ❤ Trena & NateSep 23, 2019Verified

Trisha was such a pleasure to work with. She was professional, worked with my budget, paid attention to every single detail of the event, and was there for me when I needed her. Trisha's work is excellent. Everyone at the bridal shower was impressed, especially my sister, the bride-to-be. I would love to work with Trisha again, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great event planner.Oct 8, 2018VerifiedXclusive Services's reply
Thank you so much for the opportunity to work together! It was my pleasure and I’m so happy everything turned out spectacular for you and yours 😊
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is customized to your budget and event needs. I have a structure in place that either is priced per hour or flat rate for the entire project. I certainly have no issue working through pricing with any of my prospective clients as my priority is customer service and ensuring you have a very memorable, successful event.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I typically have a free consultation with my prospective clients to learn what exactly they need my expertise for. If we’re aligned, I’ll send over a contract (+ a small retainer fee) and we hit the ground running!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I’ve been in the industry for the past eight years or so and recently have relaunched my brand Xclusive Services. I started off managing events and travel for friends and family, then branched out to small businesses.
