*DESIGN FEES EXPLAINED
Design fees include florals, lighting, rentals and stationary. Weddings vary in complexity and scale based on a variety of design elements. For instance, a wedding that requires tents, tent permits, generators, lighting, a stage, dance floor, and three different rental companies is a much more complex event than a wedding that will be completely inside with a DJ table and one rental company. That being said, both weddings can have a guest count of 200, however, the time spent planning both weddings are significantly different. The 10% design fee covers the Planner's additional amount of time, travel and expenses it takes to plan and execute the design portion of an event. We calculate the percentage of design fees based the specific amount of the rental items less vendor labor and delivery fees."
