Married abroad question

I've finished the event and wedding planning course and have come to look for some advice from you guys. My friends just got engaged and are planning to be married in Cuba in 2017. I have a billion questions but I'll stick to a few to get us started. 1. If departing from Canada, do you have to alrea...

Re: Charging for Services

I base my packages on an hourly rate. I charge $150/hr and a minimum of 4 hours. In my experience, it takes at least 4 hours to decorate a venue (depending on the amount of decorations). Therefore, I say a basic decorating package is $600. I also employ 1-2 interns per event so my rates are a little...

Re: If you've finished or close to finishing...

I started in November and am just waiting for my Unit F marks to come back. I waited 2 months between handing in Unit A and starting Unit B otherwise I would have been done probably in December or January.

Re: assignment f1 - location location location !!

I just finished and submitted mine this morning. I'm sure they want to know what you choose from the options and why. I don't think it will hurt to find a new location but I really don't think it's necessary.

Re: F5 Help

I wrote it as a flyer that you would send to your bride after the wedding. Like when you send your bride a little gift after the wedding is over you should give her the flyer on dress care, maybe a coupon for future planning services, other information she may not have thought about (moving company ...

Re: personal website

You don't need to display much of your work. You can write what it is that you offer and what makes you different from the others in your area. I have a blog on my website, featured vendors, things like that.

Re: Gaining Clients!?

I post on kijiji sometimes. I started out doing a few free events for family and friends just to have the pictures and something to show potential clients. I do promotional offers often just to keep them coming back. You can go to an auction website and get a really good deal on rings or electronics...

Re: B1 HELP

Yes. Post under venue. Then write all the info about the venue you have chosen and just remember, you can never give too much info about your venue.

Good Luck!

Need a hand with Assignment C2 please

I chose to plan an Bris for this assignment and I'm a little stuck when it comes to what kind of food to serve. On a couple different websites I've come across it says it is acceptable to serve non-kosher food for the celebration afterwards. There are a few other websites saying you must serve koshe...

I'm on B1 as well. I have also found it to be a bit vague but I would suggest just planning the party as though it were actually happening. It's better to over-answer the questions than to not give enough information. Good Luck! p.s It has taken me a few weeks to even get answers from businesses on ...
