The all important B word…
Ok so let’s talk about the dreaded B word…..
Budget…. we always ask our clients what their budget is before beginning designing with them and We’re often told they don’t know. This is totally understandable when the whole wedding planning thing is new but do you know why it’s so important we know this?
For the record our pricing is set, it doesn’t change if you have a higher or lower budget and it’s carefully considered, taking into account all the factors we need to.
Running our studio so you can come see & play around with our beautiful high quality products and chat to our experienced designers. Our well trained, highly appreciated team need decent wages to commit to working as hard as they do every day and every weekend. They give up nights out, commit to early starts and all the organisation and dedication your weddings quite rightly demand.
Then there’s the lovely vat man 🙄 who takes 20% of every sale we make, plus extra tax on our business and personal incomes but we are team players so we are good with putting back into our community/ country.
Then theres all our lovely stock, it needs carefully cleaned, stored & packed for your day. Water, electricity, gas, banking, fuel, flowers and laundry all need paid to plus, as a business we’ve got to make a profit and re-invest to ensure we’re here providing what we committed to in years to come.
Getting back to budget… we ask so we can first allow us both to check if we’re a good fit for each other. Can we create your expectations based on what you are happy to pay? We also ask so we can guide you and prevent disappointment. No one likes finding and trying on their perfect dress to later find it’s out with budget.
What’s important to you and can we achieve this for you without disappointing and you then end up looking elsewhere which wastes your time and ours. When quoting we want to send you amazing ideas that fit with your style and budget. If we don’t know a rough idea of what you want to spend we can send ideas that ultimately might not fit what you want to spend and it’s back to the drawing board.
Basically when we ask for your budget it’s not to increase pricing or try to sell you more, it’s so we work together to create a design you and your savings account loves! So that you’re happy and don’t waste precious wedding planning time going back and forth till you get what you want.
So now you’ve seen our work, our signature style and our outstanding quality you’ll understand that we are more than just a hire company. We can’t create your perfect wedding if we don’t know what we’re working to.
Much Love Team SuperNova x
