Can you get “deals” for us?
I mean…not really. We have outstanding relationships with our trusted vendors and we are able to work closely with them to collaborate for your event. We are able to create something for our clients that they are happy with, fits in their budget and is more than they could have imagined. But, we refuse to “wheel and deal” because we respect everyone’s work and time too much.
Do you have a list of preferred vendors you prefer to work with?
We, of course, have our faves…but, our main job and goal is to maintain a neutral stance with all our clients. So, we listen to you first and then we put together a list of vendors we think match your personal budget and style. We do not receive any commissions from other vendors in the field in order to remain completely unbiased for the good of our clients.
Where is the best place to see photos of past events you have planned?
The best place is on our Facebook Page! We constantly update this with our latest event snapshots – so be sure to check out our portfolio!
Are Lori & Christine the only planners on staff?
No, BCE employs event assistants and on-site coordinators to insure that every angle is covered before, during and after each event. Your event will always be staffed perfectly, and we promise this.
What areas of Indy and NYC do you work within?
We are able to offer all of our services to both the Indy and NYC metro areas. NYC clients and Indy clients will not have any additional travel expenses. Those clients that are outside these locations may incur additional fees, which can be discussed in the initial consultation.
Can you provide references from other brides and/or vendors?
Yes and yes! We understand the importance of credibility and reputation and will always provide these items upon request.
How do you prepare your pricing and how do we get that info?
In our experience we have found that each client is completely different from the rest. That said, we custom propose on each event. After our first consultation with you, we work hard to put together a unique approach to your wedding or event ~ based on your vision and your needs. Pricing, of course, depends on both of those things and is prepared for you after that first meeting.
Why is an event planner a necessary part of every event budget?
Piece of mind. Plain and simply, hiring an experienced wedding or event planner, with incredible organizational and creative expertise, will ease your mind throughout the entire planning process, especially on the actual day. Knowing you always have someone to fall to when a challenge arises and a solution seems impossible is priceless. We are able to solve problems, be at your constant aid and provide inspiration and bold moves that will make your day stand out and exceed your initial expectations…plus some.
How does BCE stand out from the hundreds of other event and wedding planners?
This answer continues to evolve, but we work hard to exude our firm but fun personalities with each new client we acquire. We put our clients above ourselves, always. We think this is one of our mightiest qualities, because it is so important in what we do. Beyond that, our sense of style and ability to adapt in a split second also sets us apart from the rest.
