Questions and answers
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
Before seeking out an event planner, you should have a sense of the timing of your event - what month or season you'd like it to occur. Also, have a sense of about how many guests you think you'd like to invite as well as a budget you'd like to keep in mind.
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
MLH Events specializes in creating unique and memorable weddings and events such as anniversary parties, sweet 16's, graduation parties, corporate events and more.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
Be sure to review a portfolio of his/her previous events and ask for references. Also, it is important for your personalities to mesh well, so you want to make sure that you feel comfortable stating your true opinions on things like floral design or table linens, that you are confident that he or she understands your general preferences and that he or she is a good communicator!
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
Be prepared for some sticker shock when it comes to vendors such as photography, catering and transportation. Services that you may not expect to cost a lot, sometimes do, especially of you have to multiply a cost by 100, 150 or 200 guests. Make a list of priorities and be prepared to spend on your top priorities and scale back a little on some of your lower priority items.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
Be creative! I am the queen of lower cost alternatives so if there is a centerpiece that you love but may not be able to afford, send over an image of it and we can chat about ways to get the same essence, without spending an arm and a leg!
- How did you get started?
My background is marketing and public relations, but prior to graduating from college, I served as the Live Events Coordinator for our on-campus radio station. After planning various concerts, club nights and student events, I was hooked. In a professional capacity, I planned corporate-focused events such as store grand opening, product launches, sampling events and more. In 2010 I planned my own wedding and become refocused on the creativity of wedding planning. I started my company in 2011 and have since been busy with all things bridal!
- How many projects do you average in a year?
It can depend -- I try not to schedule more than one event each weekend, though, if it is a combination of a wedding and smaller private party, my company is more than capable of servicing both events. My busiest season it typically May/June through October.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
Since the wedding and event planning process is a very personal one, I'm lucky enough to say that I have become friends with many of my clients! Following the wedding or event, I can help with things like dress preservation, selling any decor items you purchased for the event and following-up with vendors to make sure that outstanding balances were paid.
