Congratulations and welcome!
Please take a moment to read this bride interview
Jo Ann and her wedding planning team.
How long have you been doing wedding and
We have been doing wedding, social, and corporate
planning for over 10 years personally. Apropos Creations as a company was
launched in September of 2009 and continuing to do what we love best!
How did you become a wedding planner?
Born to a very social mother who, dragged me to every
single birthday, reunion, school and church function, along with my husband who truly
noticed my passion and how much I enjoyed planning our wedding, and coordinating
` friends and family's wedding and events is really what got me started. My husband
persisted to getting my wedding planning business off the ground almost everyday from
the day we were happily married 14 years ago. I finally faltered and so here I am.
We love your
and your portfolio.
Everything sounds fantastic… So can you tell me what sets you apart from all
the other wedding and event planners out there?
While I cannot speak for the other wedding and event
coordinators out there I can however speak for Apropos Creations! As mentioned
before, my business was founded on a passion that I have had for this business and with
time, that passion only continues to build and get stronger! I believe in an
excellent saying “Do what you say you are going to do, and when you are going to do it”
and I continue to stand behind what I say and do! Your event, whether it is your
big day or another special occasion in your life, will be treated with the utmost
priority and detail down to the place setting! I have a bountiful amount of
resources and contacts that I work with on a daily basis to help you create the event
of your dreams, and within your budget.
This all sounds so wonderful but it also seems
expensive. Are we going to be able to afford it?
We have designed a variety of
to fit everyone's style, personality and budget. These packages range from full wedding
planning to "day of" wedding coordination. You will surely find one that will fit
in your pocket.
Who do you work best with?
Apropos Creations can tailor these services to ANYONE!
We however especially love working with brides and grooms that are willing to accept and
are open to suggestions. Regardless of how much assistance you need, from complete
guidance to a few tweaks, or to just be there to listen to you vent, we are there to support
you in any way.
Who is not going to benefit from our help planning and
coordinating your wedding?
When we work with our clients, we expect them to be open
and honest with us so you benefit from the services that you have hired us for, whether
it is coordinating, planning or designing. This will help avoid any issues that
may arise while we are working together in making your day special and flawless.
Will I lose control of my wedding if you are planning it
As much as we love planning weddings, we know that this
is not our wedding. We are here for you! Your wish is our command and all we
are after is for you to enjoy this very special day, your wedding. We want what you
want, a beautiful and immaculate wedding that you will always treasure throughout time
and that is our pledge to you.
Will you work with vendors that I have already found and
people I want to work with?
Most definitely! We see it as a window of opportunity
to gain new resources in the industry and we love working with new vendors and getting to
know and seeing how they work. I have always believed in working as a team regardless
if we have worked or not worked with the vendors already chosen.
Do you belong to any organizations or associations?
We sure do. We currently belong to
Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants (ACPWC)
which is where we had gotten our training course from and they have monthly conferences to
give support and to educate us with the current trends. We also belong to
Wedding & Event Networking (WEN), here in Phoenix, AZ so we can build new and strengthen relationships with a
variety of vendors locally.
Do you take credit cards and can we have a payment plan?
We take all types of payments from credit cards, checks, and of
course, cash we offer a payment plan that will surely not break the bank. The full amount is
divided up in four payments which will help put ease in your financial situation. The payment
will be spread throughout from the time you accept the agreement all the way to one week before
Do you take one wedding per day?
The maximum number of weddings we do a month is two. This
will ensure that you are our focus and we won't spread ourselves thin and will be unable to function
at 100% for you.
