Below are some frequently asked questions. If you do not see the answer you are looking for, please feel free to contact us. We are here to assist.
We start off with a consultation to get to know you and listen to your vision about your event. This is an interview with one another to make sure that we would be a good fit for your event and that you would be a good fit for our brand.
We offer a complimentary 1-hour consultation to clients who inquire about our Full Service and Design packages. For clients only interested in our Event Management services, we offer a 100-minute consultation with a fee of $500 that is applied to their retainer if they move forward. Should they choose to go a different route, our time is compensated for the level of details that is provided to them on the call.
TOJ offers a Full Planning & Design Service as well as an Event Management Month of Coordination. Jewel solely oversees all the Full-Service clients while the Event Management clients are solely overseen by the Lead Planners on staff. We do not offer a partial planning service because our focus is on executing our events from beginning to the end with strong attention to the minute details that are often left unattended to in the partial planning.
At TOJ we do not have a minimum overall budget per se, however we educate our clients on the spending minimums as it relates to their guest count. This more guest you have on your list, the higher you will spend on your wedding budget. The caliber of events we execute and the clients we service budget a minimum of $750 per guest and have spent upwards of $1500 per guest depending on the level of experience and design details they wish to provide their guest.
No matter what type of party you’re planning for adults or children, including a birthday, Bar Mitzvah, Quinceañera, themed event, family reunion, holiday party, and more, we take your vision and inspiration and bring them to life through exciting, innovative occasions that immerse the senses. We handle all aspects of social event management, including procuring vendors and spaces to photography and entertainment to ensure that no detail is overlooked.
Yes! We absolutely love experiencing love in various global locations. Love knows no bounds. And your wedding doesn’t have to either. For couples looking for the beauty, culture, and elegance of a destination wedding, our team of wedding planners and stylists bring your dream to life at locales across the US and the globe.
Our fee structure is different from most entry level - average planners but is standard in the Luxury planning market. We have a three-part structure fee that covers all the three major elements our company will provide to you while we plan your event, which are ‘planning’, ‘design + production’ and ‘event management’. We can offer a Flat Fee Pricing for our Ethnic and Cultural Weddings depending on the scope of production
We have a handful of preferred vendors that we provide to our clients so that they still have options to choose from based on their budget, style, personality and being a good fit for their event. We however pride ourselves in constant networking and we love to make new friends in the industry; so if there is any vendor that has been on your bucket list to work with, please share their details with us and we will reach out and vet them to ensure that they are more than capable to execute in the standards that we would require.
Our clients get something better than a discount when they book our preferred vendors, they get an added value to their service package, sometimes worth several thousands of dollars, that they would not get without booking through us. We don’t believe in providing discounts for a service offered. What we sell is not a product that will someday go out of style, but a service that buys your time and your peace of mind and is forever a part of your story.
We operate on a full and total transparency with our clients. Right from the on-boarding meeting, our clients are presented with a budget analysis spreadsheet based on their overall budget. Our clients make their own decision on the vendors for their events, they see the proposals, sign the contracts and pay the retainer to the vendor directly.
We are very exclusive to the type of clients we service; we know that we are not for everyone and this is perfectly fine with us. As a result of this, we only take on a handful of events in a year to ensure that we have unlimited time and resources to dedicate to all our clients. Although we can book as far out as 18 months, our typical clients usually book us to fully plan their wedding between 6 to 9 months out.
We have a strong and effective team and you’ve heard the saying that “it takes a village”; Jewel will be the main point of contact for all our Full-Service clients and will oversee the entire budget, planning, event design, vendor procurement, production and event management for the clients. However, our clients will touch points during the planning process on various tasks with some members of our team to ensure that we are always at your service. A lead planner will be assigned for other event service packages other than the Full Service 30 days before the event
Guest count is definitely not a factor in us executing your event as we have produced a large convention of over 3000 guests in attendance and we have planned an intimate dinner party at a private residence for 12 guests. Our largest wedding to date was a multi-day cultural wedding for 1500 guests.
We are available by phone, email, text message, WhatsApp message, telegram and social media to respond immediately to our clients. If we miss any contact, we always return that back within 24 hours. Our clients also get an advanced notice anytime we would be away from the office and they are always prepared for that.
Absolutely! This is one of our strong suites and parents love and adore everyone on our team. We have been the advocate and spokesperson for the bride’s mom or groom’s dad or some family member at some point in time. We will tread carefully and with respect and hope we are received in the same manner. We are often always the voice of reason in delivering information that the couple don’t feel comfortable delivering to their parents.
When we get an inquiry from such clients, we take their requests very seriously; we along with our team of vendors sign an NDA and the clients usually compensate us with a bonus fee since we would not be able to use their wedding images for our marketing needs. This is one of the reasons we work with our preferred vendors because they are all always on board with the tight niche security to ensure that our clients wish is respected.
