WHY SHOULD WE BOOK YOU AS OUR PLANNER?
HOW DO YOU CHARGE? IS IT BASED ON AN HOURLY RATE OR A PERCENTAGE OF THE OVERALL BUDGET?
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
We are with you every step of the way – vendor meetings, phone calls, text messages, and behind the scenes emails with your vendors so you don’t have to think about the nitty-gritty details that eat away at your fun planning time.
We have your best interests covered to create the best planning experience possible! Our goal is that you are smiling, laughing and stress-free every wedding planning step of the way.
Our wedding planning services are charged at a flat rate, even bundled together for some savings; these flat rates would take into account travel, consultations and anything else involved in the service.
As each event or wedding is unique, the wedding styling cost would be based on staffing, travel and work required. You’d be quoted as a separate cost before any work is carried out.
Yes, we do, we offer a Direct Debit option where you can lay down only a R|5000 deposit and pay your balance monthly up until 60 days before your event. We also offer a 5% discount to clients who choose to instead pay their invoice in full.
DOES CRIMSON EDGE HAVE ANY SPECIAL RELATIONSHIPS WITH SUPPLIERS WHERE CRIMSON EDGE BENEFITS
HOW MANY HOURS DOES IT TAKE TO PLAN A WEDDING?
IF I BOOK A FREE CONSULTATION AM I UNDER ANY FURTHER OBLIGATION?
Absolutely not. We receive no payment for recommendations or referrals from any suppliers or vendors. Some vendors and suppliers do offer our clients a discount if you are referred to them by Crimson Edge Events and that discount is given directly to you.
As above, we do work with some vendors and suppliers on a regular basis, because we know they are the best of the best and will deliver incredible results for our clients. However we are not locked into a relationship with any one business.
The average time it takes to plan a wedding is around 200 – 250 hours. That’s 6 weeks of full-time work! If you want something extraordinary, something chock full of gorgeous details and particularly if you want a wedding in a marquee or non-licensed venue, odds are that you will need to spend at least that many hours if not more.
And, if like most couples you don’t have any previous event planning experience, you could probably add on a few more.
No - your first consultation with Crimson Edge Events is always complimentary and completely obligation-free. At the end of the consultation, you can choose whether you would like us to craft a customised quote based on your needs.
However, you can elect not to receive a quote at all if you prefer.
