What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask questions, share your entire vision, almost overshare what you are looking for. It helps the planner get your true vision and thoughts on what you are looking for. Make sure it is a good fit for you, we want you to feel we are a friend that you can vent your frustrations to and be honest with us about how you are working through the event.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How involved do you want to be in the planning process?
How much is your budget realistically?
What do you really want to 'Do It Yourself'?
Some DIY projects are more expensive than purchasing a completed product - if you don't have time to do the research talk to us about it.
