You have questions, we have answers!
Q. How many Partridge Avenue staff attend each event?
A. Staffing varies for each event, depending on the size and complexity. Rest assured of two facts though: Julie will be present and sufficient staff are always on-site.
Q. Do you plan (birthdays, weddings, celebrations, retirements,…) for (Christian, Jewish, Indian, LQBTQ, …) couples/families?
A. Yes! Here at Partridge Avenue, we believe that all of life’s moments deserve to be celebrated. We also believe that people are people and love is love, regardless of any characteristic. We can’t wait to meet you, learn your story, and plan your event!
Q. Are your rates negotiable?
A. We understand that events are expensive and you want to get the best deal. If you are interested in working with us, but fear that we are out of your budget, let’s discuss. While we do not discount our rates, we are more than happy to create a custom package that is within your budget.
Q. My venue provides a coordinator; do we really need to hire one?
A. Our most asked question. YES! A thousand times YES! Remember that a venue coordinator works for the venue, we work for you. A venue coordinator is loyal to their venue, we are loyal to you. There is so much more that goes into your event than what happens at the venue. Knowing this information is crucial to ensuring that all of the moving pieces come together at the right time in the correct manner. As your planner, we know all of the intricacies, details, and nuances to make your event perfect, for you. A venue coordinator is just not the same.
Q. Do you travel?
A. Absolutely! In general, our travel fees include the cost of transportation (such as airfare or mileage) and lodging (enough nights for us to be fully present for your event’s agenda).
Q. Can we talk to your previous clients about their experience?
A. You sure can! We love the amazing feedback that we receive from clients and fellow vendors and would be more than happy to connect you with a few so that you can hear about their experience with Partridge Avenue.
Q. Do you have an inventory of decor and rentals for your clients to use?
A. Although we do not carry such an inventory, we work with various companies and can always find just what you need at a price point that works for you.
Q. Do you only plan weddings?
A. You will see many weddings here, but we do it all! Corporate galas, training events, baby showers, private dinners, birthdays, and so on. If you have something to celebrate, we are here for it!
