I randomly found ThumbTack to prep for my birthday event and was honestly a bit apprehensive about the services being offered. After reviewing all options, I found Alexandria to be the best fit for my vision and budget. Alexandria, her team, and I have been collaborating together for about a month to bring my Tipsy Tea Party vision to life. Before I hired Alex and her team, I was a bit lost and needed direction and they professionally exceeded my expectations while also going out of their way to make sure I stayed within my budget. Unfortunately, COVID-19 brought things to a halt and the state went into a lockdown forbidding social gatherings. I contacted Alex to cancel my event and she was more than understanding. I will be definitely using her services again!Apr 4, 2020Verified
Alexandria did such an amazing job planning and coordinating my baby shower! She toured the venue with me to create a floor plan of our event. It really helped us visualize how our event was going to be laid out. Alexandria created an inspiration board of all the things I wanted to incorporate and how we were going to implement them. She did a detailed budgeting sheet of everything from menu items and paper products to favors and invitations and stuck to it. At 32 weeks pregnant, I didn't have to worry about a thing. She made sure everything was perfect! Definitely recommend using her for event planning!Feb 4, 2020
Alex and Sean were such a pleasure to meet and work with for the little time we did! We found her about 6 weeks prior to our wedding in April and we first booked her for her price. The fixed amount she charges makes sense and she explained that well. But after working with her we believed she was worth way more! Alex opened up her home to us after our initial call (they make a mean margarita and her wine glass collection is magical!). She had a whole presentation and copies of our itinerary ready. The quality of work and the thought behind everything was evident! Even after Covid-19 changed our plans and ultimately cancelled our wedding up here in VA, Alex continued to reach out and see if we needed anything. She truly goes the extra mile! We are so sad we had to cancel our wedding but we hope there’s an opportunity to work with her in another event in the future. Alexandria Event Design: 10/10 would recommend!!Jun 11, 2020
Working with Alexandria was a wonderful experience! She helped me plan my penthouse proposal to the future mrs! Alexandria was so detailed, professional and thoughtful with the small details. She took her time making sure the moment was extra special and even stayed to take some photos of us -- above and beyond! We can't thank her enough and definitely recommend her services!Mar 24, 2020
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I work on a fixed price contract because I think that best protects my clients from unknown additional fees. My contracts are transparent so my clients know up front what they are getting with no surprises! If additional services are required, we can always add an addendum to our contract!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Communication is key! I like to schedule an initial phone call before booking to get a sense of what your specific needs are for your day-your wants,needs, budget, timeline, etc. After getting some big picture details, we can book and the real fun begins!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?A fun fact about me is I am an Interior Designer by day and Event Designer by night! I graduated from Virginia Tech (Go Hokies!) with an Interior Design degree, and currently work designing kitchens and bathrooms. I pair function with beauty in all of my projects, making sure to listen to the clients needs while meeting a timeline and price point. This translates into event design well, as I know how to juggle "organized chaos" while staying on budget!
