~*How to Order and Reserve your date...
SCHEDULING A CONSULTATION-"By Appointment"
If you reach our voice mail or answering machine, we may already be assisting another client, or staffing an event as we do on a weekly basis. We would LOVE to work with you... Please leave us a detailed message or request for a consultation with a suggested date(s) or time frame(s), and we will get back with you shortly. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Hope to hear from you soon!
WHERE TO START
Feel free to browse our website, and discover the many options that will help guide you towards planning your "Dream Wedding". While browsing, be sure to check out our Photo Gallery for ideas, Gallery of our Reception Center, Inventory and services of what we offer, cake designs & cake flavors, color swatches of linens, catering menu, helpful advice tips, & pricing for your budget. Knowing what you want may be half the battle (lol...), but don't worry we can help you get there if you are unsure.
INFO ABOUT CONSULTATIONS-"Full Service" or "Wedding Package" Inquires
We offer FREE initial, no pressure consultations. If our Full-service option or a Wedding Package, seems to fit your needs, we will start off with a consultation to better understand your interests, style, budget, & envision. Your consultation will be done with a professional & experienced "Wedding Consultant", (one who has planned and been a part of potentially hundreds of events over the years, and can give professional guidance). "Wedding Consulting" is handled from our office (in person-consultation, by email, or phone). We also offer professional "Wedding Planning" Services for those who are seeking a more personalized service with custom options, or desiring a venue-site consultation. (Wedding Planning is not necessary for most weddings. We have found with our extensive experience, many concerns or venue-site planning can be handled within our office).
Depending on your needs, your consultation can last anywhere from about a half hour to a few hours long. If you have any time constraints please let the consultant know upfront or plan to break the consultation into two or more separate meetings. It is also helpful to let your consultant know how detailed you want your consultation to be, and to express what your goals are for that day. Consultations can be great for answering questions, viewing samples, obtaining a quick bid, discussing your wedding plans, or more extensively to go over all of the details upfront for a very accurate bid. Our consultations are non-pressured. Our consultants do not get paid any commissions or bonuses based on sales. Our goal and motivation is to help. You will not be asked to put any money down, or sign a contract that day; However, your date will not be held until a deposit is made. Most consultations are for organizing notes & ideas for an estimate which you review on your own. Estimates are sent by email (usually within 24-hrs of a consultation). Estimates can also be given on the spot, or through alternative methods upon request.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR A "CONSULTATION
After browsing our website you should have a pretty good idea of what we offer, and perhaps a general idea of what you have in mind. Suggestions for a successful consultation:
RESERVING & BOOKING -"Do-It-Yourself Inquires"; "Know exactly what you need"; "Planning Long-Distance"
We handle orders directly over the phone (orders & payments) or email (orders only). An estimate is sent out through email before payment is collected to ensure the order's accuracy. Once you are ready to book/reserve, just give us a call with your 50% deposit and CC, or send a deposit check in the mail(cash is also accepted in person). We also offer phone consultations for anyone needing a little extra help, or those who are planning a wedding long-distance.
