I cannot read one more post like this without addressing it…

I am not the first to say or request this,
nor will I be the last until we change the norm…
but can we PLEASE STOP using the terms::


or the kicker… ‘CHEAP’
when requesting vendor referrals + suggestions.
[admins:: this primarily lands on you to stop allowing it]

what is affordable to you, may not be to the next person.
your budget is yours and yours alone.
and no judgment will be cast upon you for having one.
In fact, I applaud you for knowing what your parameters are!
This is not about the AMOUNT of money you are willing to spend.
It is about the initial way you’re approaching the year-long relationship you’re about to have with said professional.

To ask for ‘a cheap’ anything is insulting.
To ask for a ‘reasonably priced’ whatever… is lazy and offensive.

While these terms may not seem like anything to you,
the requester of our talents…

they mean quite a lot to us,
the professionals you’re seeking to hire.
without meaning to, and before you even meet a single one of us…

you have already diminished us [and our businesses] worth.

so please. for the love of all things sacred…
use more concise and thoughtful language!!

“looking for a DJ under $1500”
“ISO a photog that fits my $4000 budget”
whatever the number may be.
[side note:: please add your date + location with your request]

be honest. be transparent. be forthright.
and you will get that same respect and quality in return.
not to mention...
not dozens of irrelevant recommendations + referrals
[that you could have just found by typing your request into google #justsayin]

This may be a bit controversial…
[and that’s fine. I tend to live in the space of unpopular opinion]
but any professional worth their salt, VALUE THEIR WORTH!
and will not respond to such requests as ‘cheap’ + ‘affordable’.
[regardless of the budget]

and lastly, no matter your budget…
please remember::
you get what you pay for!
and for f#!$ sake…

August 2nd, 2006⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This date kind of snuck up on me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s hard to believe that it’s been this long.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I think of it… it simultaneously seems like it went by in a blur, and also, some of the longest years of my life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am so incredibly grateful for where this road has taken me and where it’s leading me towards.
As rough, frustrating, and tumultuous it was at times, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I would be remiss if I did not mention the remarkable individuals who supported me, those who worked alongside me, and all who cheered me on throughout this unbelievable journey.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I literally could not have done it without you all.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Together, we’ve planned + executed over 700 Ceremonies, 300+ Receptions, hundreds of Corporate events, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Memorials, FundRaisers, Galas, Music Festivals, Art Shows, and even a few Japanese Anime Cons to round out our event adventures.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are few ‘jobs’ in life that could offer me this kind of variety and fulfillment, and I’m super excited to see what the next 15 bring.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I posted this to our staff page one year ago today.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Right after getting home from one of the #hottestweddingsever and my team f*en! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This event was Hard!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it was hot. there was a huge hill. and a lot - A LOT! of stairs.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not a single member of the team complained once.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not Once!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I couldn't be more grateful to those who continue to work these crazy events with me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I feel bad that I don't have nearly as much work for them this year... but I hope, I pray, that when we get our butts kicked all over 2021 that they still stand by my side and continue to support me, and our incredible couples. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

mmm... COCKTAILS.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Dammmnnn! I love a good cocktail!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
but like. a Goooood one.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I don't drink them often #butwhenido 😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🍻Normally... I'm a total Beer Girl. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's in my nature. I mean. I live in #Wisco and my hubs is the Head Brewer @stonearchbrew #makessense #hophead #saynomore ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But when I'm at an event (or @ali_fagerlinds on a Tuesday) and offered a beautiful libation like the one pictured above, guaranteed I'm gonna suck that scrumptious sh*t right down! #andhaveanother⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For your hosted (yes. hosted) Wedding Bar:: consider offering Signature Drinks in addition to your Beer+Wine options. The Craft Cocktail world has endless options to appease the most discerning palate while simultaneously matching your color palette. #seewhatididthere ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Providing a Signature Drink (or 2) for your guests is a great way to add an alcohol option without the expense of a full menu. All deliciousness aside... it's also a practical alternative. It keeps things moving!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Having limited options means having fewer items to stock or provide, it yields fewer pain-points for your bartenders, it helps guests make decisions easier, thus minimizing the waiting-in-line time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We typically recommend offering 2 choices to your guests.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One with Dark Liquor - Bourbon or Whiskey⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
and one with Light - Vodka or Gin⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of which is sweet(er) - and one that is not.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Please make one (or both) of these options available as a Mocktail and don't forget about a menu. and Please! make the menu visible beyond just the person that's ordering.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

the TIMELINE.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the ultimate key to a successful event.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TIP #1⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Just like your 6th-grade training bra...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
PAD THAT SH*T!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What you think may only take 10 min⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
please allow yourself at least 15. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What may take 45... plan for an hour.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is not an ordinary day... and more often than not, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the unexpected will happen. You'll want to assure you have adequate time to address any hiccups or issues.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also. You absolutely DO NOT want to feel rushed!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
rushed makes you stressed⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
stress shows on your face⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Your face is in all.the.pix⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So do yourself a favor and allow for plenty of cushion time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TIP #2⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It takes #morethanaminute to get 200 guests to find+take their seats. Then there's Wedding Party introductions, a Welcome Toast + maybe a meal blessing before your Caterer will even think to start serving.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Give yourself at least 30 min from when Cocktail Hour ends to when Dinner is actually served.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TIP #3⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
always the most controversial tip/topic ☠️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
the FIRST LOOK!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have dozens of reasons why I advocate for a 1st look...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
but today we'll stick with 3.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ NO. it absolutely does not ruin the Aisle moment! #notevenalittle In fact, it enhances it. You'll be calmer and more present in the moment of heading down that aisle when you've already allowed some of the anxiety to be released.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ You will get the most beautiful photos from a 1st look session. They'll portray the truest, most raw, most authentic emotions shared between the two of you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And you can do all this without 400 👀 staring at you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ Because most of the pix are already done... you'll be able to enjoy the Cocktail Hour! I mean, If you're off taking photos... you're clearly not eating the mini-sliders you've been drooling about for months. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I was very impressed with the professionalism that this company portrays and how friendly and helpful Sarah and her staff are. I highly recommend them for any event you might have!!
I truely believe you have to treat people (including wedding planners) with respect and dignity. Don't know what the customer /client did you make Sarah terminate the contract, but it must have been pretty disrespectful. Way to go Sarah!
