The Splash Advantage

Why hire a Splash Consultant?  Here are the four reasons we share with Brides when they call to inquire after our wedding planning services.  We always assume they are shopping around for a planner so we want to let them know, even if they don't choose us, what to look for in a wedding planner.

Credentials:  Our Consultants are all members of the Association of Bridal Consultants and have completed their Professional Development Program in order to be designated as a Professional Bridal Consultant™.  Anyone can hang up their shingle as a wedding planner (sounds like a fun job, right?) but please make sure you are working with a professional who has the support and knowledge that comes along with an affiliation to a professional wedding association.  A Splash of Elegance is additionally a member of the Association of Wedding Professionals.

Flat Fee Pricing: When you sign a contract with Splash, you know what you are paying up front.  We choose not to charge a percentage of what your wedding costs so there are no surprises in the end.  Any discounts we receive from vendors are passed on directly to you- we take no kickbacks.  We want to make the wedding planning process as stress-free as possible!

Insurance:  A Splash of Elegance carries business insurance to make sure our Consultants are covered -- make sure you hire a "real" business. 
Back Up: With a large team of consultants, there is always someone available should you at the last minute need a planner (have you heard of our 911 service?).  In the unlikely event that your Consultant or the Assistant Coordinator becomes ill, we will always have someone available to step in and take over to make sure your event goes off without a hitch! 

Happy Planning!

Julie Daniel, Splash Consultant
