Are event planners just for large events?
That is a common misconception. A2D can assist on any size event, large or small. We have planned luncheons for as little as 10 and parties for as many as 300!
What will it cost?
The truth is that it depends. There is no “one price fits all” answer. Since each event is different, the prices will be based on your individual needs. We work hard to help you set a budget and stick to it. We also don’t believe in surprise costs at the end, if something needs to be adjusted along the way we will communicate with you to find a solution.
How much time do you need to plan an event?
It is never too early to begin planning your event. We love to get as much notice as possible so that we have ample time to get all supplies and vendors ready to go. Many dates tend to book quickly, so getting yours on our books is priority number 1.
I have already chosen a venue and they have their own coordinator. Why do I need a separate one too?
We know that some venues have their own coordinators and we are happy to work with them. Typically, venue coordinators answer your questions about policies of the venue, assist with meal choices, and process your paperwork. They generally do not help create, select, or setup your many personalized items such as favors, décor, seating arrangements, photo booths, etc. They also don’t negotiate other vendor contracts or design event stationary and décor which is something we also do.
I have a very unique theme in mind, can you help with that?
Yes! Themes are one of our specialties. We work with your vision to create an event atmosphere that is uniquely yours!
What does A2D stand for?
Attention to Detail. We really believe the attention we show to the small things help make your event memorable.
Can you be hired for event design and décor only?
Absolutely! We have a wide variety of skills to benefit your event and would be happy to provide décor or event design only. For example, we are not wedding planners (we have mad respect for those who are but we know our limitations), however we have done décor for reception venues.
I have friends and family who are willing to help with the event, and I can do some things myself, why do I need to hire a professional?
The simple answer is that in the long run, an event planner saves you time, stress, and sometimes even money (we have good relationships with great vendors who give us business to business pricing). Planning a successful event is a lot of work, both leading up to and the day of. Your event should be enjoyable and stress free for you as well as your friends and family. Our motto is “we do all the work, so you can enjoy being the host!”
