HERE’S A ROUGH OUTLINE OF WHAT WILL HAPPEN BETWEEN BOOKING AND THE BIG EVENT DAY:
STAGE 1: INITIAL DESIGN MEETING
Within one month of booking we will meet to discuss the big picture. At your Initial Design Meeting we will:
Dive into your vision for the overall look & feel of your event
Construct a list of all design elements and possible artists / vendors needed (this includes floral, furniture, lighting, draping, table top decor, custom scenery elements and much more!)
After the Initial Design Meeting, a $500 non-refundable retainer is due. Once the retainer is received the Wonderstruck team will get to work putting together a customized visual storyboard combining all of the design elements to be included in your event. We will research vendors and sourcing options and construct a comprehensive proposal detailing how we will make your vision a reality. (time frame for creation of storyboard and proposal: roughly 2 weeks, depending on the scope of your project)
Once you have received your custom proposal – we will meet with you to discuss moving forward. At this time, if you decide you’d like to work with us to make your party spectacular, we require a signed contract and a deposit in the amount of half of the estimated budget to do any further design work.
STAGE 2: PROPOSAL REVIEW / MODIFICATION
In most cases, within two follow-up design meeting we will:
Review and discuss all design elements from the custom storyboard and modify as needed
Make sure the proposal and the budget make you super happy and excited
Finalize all design details and project scope
Revise the proposal as needed
Once the design has been refined to your hearts content and we have written approval from you to proceed, we will move forward with bringing it all to life. Then, you’ll sit back and relax while we get busy booking all your design vendors and sourcing and constructing all of your one of a kind design elements, big and small. During this time we may be in touch to discuss any design changes or additions but for the most part, you’re off enjoying your engagement while we get to do what we love to bring your event to life.
THE HOME STRETCH: WRAP-UP MEETING
Almost there! Roughly six weeks before your special event we have one last meeting to nail down every last detail. We will:
Finalize your floor plan
Confirm all design details
Confirm all vendor / artisan details and contracts
Following this meeting all vendors will be contacted and sent the final design timeline and floor plan.
Following the wrap-up meeting we will send you your final invoice. Payment is due one month before your event date. After that, it’s R&R for you until the big day!
THE BIG DAY!!
While you get all dolled up, we will be at the venue(s) making everything gorgeous. This is when all the details from your design proposal are brought together and floor-to-ceiling wonder is created. We oversee all setup and often install most elements ourselves to ensure its done according to our vision, then we disappear like design ninjas until it’s time for a flip or tear-down.
After the event, we return to the venue to strike all decor items and make sure all rentals we may have used get returned to where they belong.
