WHAT DO YOU CHARGE?

CAN YOU GET ME DEALS OR DISCOUNTS?

Yes, but also no. I do partner with Minted and Generation Tux, and a few local companies which will discount their services for my clients. However, I really believe in the services provided by my preferred vendors and would never ask them to discount their prices to fit a client’s budget.

HAVE YOU WORKED AT MY VENUE BEFORE?

Huffington Post has a great answer to this question.

You know why this question is bogus? Because it doesn't matter at all. There are hundreds of thousands of venues from banquet halls to barns and everything in between. Plenty of planners, myself included, will only take on a certain number of clients a year to make sure the right amount of time and attention can be devoted to those weddings. If a planner only takes a dozen events a year and has been in business for 10 years, that's quite possibly 120 venues out of a significant amount of venues in existence...

Never rule out working with a planner because they haven't worked at your venue before. What is really important to consider is the style of your venue and how much work your planner really will have to do. If you're dreaming of a palace dripping in chandeliers with wall to wall marble floors, it's best to look for a planner that has similar pictures in their portfolio. Likewise, if your dream is to get married at the top of a hill and have a reception inside of a barn, you want the planner that has the experience in that environment and knows how to handle all of the rentals that you will need.

You’ll notice that a Sixpence wedding can take place in a barn, at a country club, or in your backyard but the common thread is LOVE. You are a Sixpence client if you really and truly believe that you’re getting married to your best friend and your soul mate. The person that you can sit with in comfortable silence, share winter socks with, and the person who you put first, before yourself.

*Site visits are a love add on and can be included in your wedding package.

DO YOU ACCEPT VENMO OR PAYPAL?

Yes.

[Quizzical look] I have two bachelor’s degrees, can that suffice?

You can add a planning meeting at any time.

WHat happens if you’re sick on our wedding day?

Another wedding planner of equal experience will take over. This is part of why I take obsessive notes.
