Recently I had a consultation with a very honest couple. The attractive bride-to-be told me that she wanted something pretty and cheap. Although I don’t believe in spending frivolously, I am a proponent of “you get what you pay for”.
With me it’s always going to be gorgeous but you’ll get something different, something unique. I am not ordinary so my designs are not ordinary. I’ve invested in my craft and I operate in a spirit of excellence. It is extremely important to me, not look like anyone else therefore I don’t want my designs to look like everyone else. Now if you bring me an inspiration picture and say “how much will this cost?” I will create it but it will be unique to you and thus its value will not be the same as someone else who may create something similar. I delight in taking your vision and making it extraordinary.
At Eleven 11 Events, we use premium draping and premium linen. Some lines we carry are Luxury Lines therefore you may never see anyone else in this area with them. I also make a lot of my items so they are custom.
The definition of cheap: costing very little; relatively low in price; inexpensive; of decreased value. Nothing received from Eleven 11 Events, LLC will ever bring these words to mind. Words that come to mind regarding our work: Priceless, superior, valuable, excellent, sophisticate and classy.
But I get it, really I do. This bride didn’t mean to say that she wanted a cheap looking wedding. What she was saying was she didn’t want to pay a lot. So, how can one not pay a lot and still get priceless, superior, valuable, excellent, sophisticate, classy and gorgeous?
First by being realistic regarding what your vision of your special day is.
If you picture a fairytale wedding with beautiful elements flowing throughout in your desired color palette, please know it is achievable. What value would you put on someone creating a day that you’ve imagined?
Here’s what a bride had to said about their Eleven 11 Events experience:
I called after 7:00 pm on Christmas Eve and Ms. Ingram answered the phone and provided me with a quote later that evening! We scheduled to meet two days later which left us just one week to plan before the wedding on 01/02/21. I can’t say enough about the professionalism of this team and their attention to details! They definitely exceeded our expectations! Ms. Ingram and her team were very responsive to our needs and decreased my stress level right away. Excellent communication and follow through was noted with all of her staff. I definitely appreciated the comprehensive services offered. Anything I needed – they delivered; from designing the wedding program, finding a photographer, creating a Zoom link so family and friends could be part of our special day, picking up the cake, shopping for a cak
