I THINK I WANT TO HIRE YOU, WHAT
ARE THE NEXT STEPS?
DO YOU CARRY INSURANCE?
Well-Dressed Events is based in northern New Jersey and we service the entire state including North Jersey, Central Jersey, South Jersey and the Jersey Shore. You'll also often find us working in New York City, the Hudson Valley, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Destination weddings and events are considered on a case-by-case basis! Send us an email if you'd like to inquire about destination planning services.
We put together core packages and a la carte add-ons to help give you an idea of the types of planning services we offer, but we don't believe there is a one-size-fits-all approach to wedding or event planning. Once we have our initial consultation and understand your needs a bit better, we provide a customized proposal. Learn more about what our New Jersey wedding couples spend on average.
Total cost is also dependent on travel. We include 60 miles of roundtrip mileage in our wedding packages, and 40 miles of roundtrip mileage in our event and party packages. Any additional miles are added to the proposal at the standard IRS reimbursement rate. Depending on the distance or event schedule, we may also require a hotel. We dive into all of this during our initial consultation and break it all down in your customized proposal. You can find more info here.
WHO SHOWS UP ON EVENT DAY?
Your lead planner (either Kristen or Nicole) will always be on site at your wedding or event. Depending on the size and scope of the event, you may also have one or more members of our team present. The actual number of planners, service time, and all other details will be broken out in the terms of your customized proposal.
Yes, we carry general and professional liability insurance and are happy to provide certificates of insurance to the venues we work at.
HOW DO PAYMENTS WORK?
We accept credit cards, bank transfer or payments through services like Venmo and Zelle. Depending on the package and when you book your planning services, we usually break out our payments into 3 installments--a retainer upon contract signing, a payment 6 months prior, and final payment due one week before event date.
