Here are some answers to some of the questions you may be asking yourself....
Q: How will I know if ASTON Affairs is a good fit?
A: We are not the cheapest event planning service around, we are not the "yes" planner. We will not just tell you that things are possible when they are in fact not. That is not a good practice to follow. We will not be replacing your mother or best friend in the wedding planning process. We will be assisting you in keeping calm while putting all of the pieces of your wedding puzzle together. We will be there to answer all of your etiquette questions and be a shoulder to cry on if needed. We will be the neutral party to help you make a decision or get out of sticky situation. We will be there to help make one of the most important days of your life perfectly yours and allow you to enjoy your wedding as guest. And at the end of all of this we will be friends. If that sounds good to you then shoot us an email and let's chat.
Q: Do you work with LGBTQ Couples?
A: ASTON Affairs works with ALL engaged couples regardless of race, religion or sexual orientation. We believe love has no boundaries and are happy to work with any couple who contacts us!
Q: How much can we expect to pay for your planning services?
A: We have packages for just about every type of event out there and without learning the details about your special day we can not just arbitrarily send you pricing.
Having an initial consult will help us learn what we need to know to better send over a proposal just for you! We can easily do this over the phone to fit your busy schedule so no need to worry about that.
Q: No seriously, how much will this cost me?
A: Please see above (lol!) but here are a few things to help you learn more. Our event planning services start at $250 while our Full Service Wedding Planning packages start at $1,800. We do not start working on an event or hold a date until we receive an initial deposit and a signed contract from our clients. This amount is non-refundable but guarantees that we are all yours on your event day! For payment we accept cash, check or charge. Each time you have a payment due we send out an invoice to you. You can pay securely online through our automated system free of charge to you! We really do try to make it as easy as possible for all of our clients.
Q: My event venue already has an onsite coordinator. What is the difference between an event/wedding planner and a venue coordinator? Do I need both?
A: Too make a long story short...let's just start with - YES! You need an event/wedding planner AND a venue coordinator!
Venue coordinators know the ins and outs of the event venue and assist with things like venue staff and setup while we know the ins and outs of our clients wants. The two of us can work together to make sure that your event day is perfect.
As professionals, it is our job to work together with venue coordinators to build a seamless flow to your event from start to finish and create a magical experience for our clients and their guests.
Q: Do you travel?
A: Yes! We love to travel. If your event will require more than 1 hour travel time for us we will work out appropriate travel compensation. All of this is worked out at the time we sign the contract.
Q: Am I a Detailed Bride/groom?
A: Have you been referred to as Bridezilla or Groomzilla recently? You may not be the best fit for us. We are down to earth and very easy to work with. We make the wedding planning process fun, relaxed and something you can enjoy! We are here to help you and love to work with people who are kind, fun and genuine. We pride ourselves on the friendships we form with our clients during the planning process which continue for years to come. If you think this sounds like something you want as well email or call us and let's chat!
