Q & A
Over the years we have been asked many questions, many times.
So, here are the most popular ones paired with our answers.
Q: What “deals” can you get us?
A: None. We are not in the business of cutting a deal. We have fantastic relationships with other professionals and are able to have candid conversations about budgets. We respect the prices they have outlined and trust their services. For that reason, we never want a client to hire us believing we will have coupons or giant discounts. Our style does not fit that bill.
Q: Do you offer Day-Of Coordination?
A: Our version of this popular option is Month-Of Planning. We need at least four weeks to get organized and execute an event that matches our client’s (and our) expectations and reputation. This is the base service we offer.
Q: Are you a decorator? Do you have decor rentals?
A: No and no. We are planners. We don’t have an inventory of items that are available to utilize. We definitely guide our clients down the design path and align them with professionals that will be able to create the overall vision (florists, rental companies, etc.) - that is our job for sure.
Q: Do you require your clients to work with specific vendors?
A: No way! We want our clients to build a team they adore. We can certainly help recommend and are always available to assist here. But, it would be bad business for us to demand our clients work with vendors that suit our needs, and not theirs.
Q: BCE is more expensive than other planners - why should we work with you?
A: Price is important - but quality is even more important. We will always provide our services at a level that matches the price our clients are paying - and more. We are not the most expensive and we are not the least expensive. So, if price is the most important factor when selecting a planner, we probably are not the right people for the job!
