Tell us a little bit about your company and what you do.
At AB Occasion Design, we are committed to excellent customer satisfaction. Our customer is our number one priority. We will make your wedding dreams a reality by listening to your ideas.
We serve as your guide, consultant, mediator, informant, financial manager and constant source of reassurance during this exciting time. We believe your wedding day should be a memorable one, not one overcast by last minute details and issues that distract you from basking in the glow of the day.
Our attitude and actions remain professional at all times in our interactions with you and all involved vendors.
How many events do you typically plan per year and what type of events do you do most often?
We average 8-10 events per year. We mostly do weddings, but we have also done backyard BBQ’s, Birthday Parties, Anniversary Parties, and Holiday Parties.
What do you think is the most important thing people should look for when hiring an event planning company?
I think the most important thing people should look for when hiring an event planning company is how well they click with them. You want to hire someone you can get along with and you want to make sure you see yourself having fun with them and being able to laugh and cry with them during this exciting time in your life.
It’s important to find someone you connect with and can see yourself building a relationship with.
How long before the event would you recommend someone to hire an event planner?
There is no right or wrong time to hire an event planner, but the sooner you do, the more time and money you will save. As soon as my client hires me, we begin working together for their big day – no matter how far away it is.
What are some of your favorite ways to enhance an event on a budget?
One of my favorite ways to enhance on a budget is use the venue as a blank canvas. I like to take what the venue has and use ideas and creative thinking to enhance it at little or no cost.
I also like to customize my services for all clients I have a base price, but that can be adjusted based on what my clients needs and wants are.
Do you have any tips you’d like to share with those looking to hire an event planning company?
When looking for an event planner make sure they have a wealth of resources to offer you as well as many successful events to draw upon. Make sure they are professional, knowledgeable, have a good personality, are an asset to you, and that they focus on the details of your event whether you’re planning an intimate gathering or a large scale wedding.
Look for someone who specializes in planning weddings and special events in Pittsburgh and throughout Western Pennsylvania.
You also want your planner to make sure they tailor their wedding planning services to meet your needs and budget. I love to help my clients realize their dreams and bring them to life!
