Frequently Asked Questions
A. Yes, every member of the team maintains a current passport for destination weddings.
A. We prefer to have a minimum of four to seven event coordinators at any event. The number of event coordinators is not related to the number of guests expected at an event, it is based on the vision of the client and the details involved in the execution of the event.
A. Based on the information you provide during our planning meetings, we are happy to assign specific staff to your out of town guests, etc.
A. All Occasions By M&K staff will be dressed in matching logo'd cardigans, name tags, black slacks, skirt or dress. Our primary cardigan color is red, but we will accommodate special colors if requested when we are hired.
A. Our first line of action will be to inform the bartender who will no longer serve the guest and inform the client of that action. If a guest becomes loud and unruly we will notify the venue management and if necessary contact the local authorities. We have found that the client and other guests are very effective in assisting us with the unruly or tipsy guest.
A. We prefer to have the gift table located in the main ballroom in plain sight throughout the reception. At the end of the evening, an Occasions by M&K staff member will bundle all cards and envelopes and present them to the bride and groom before their final exit from reception. The remaining gifts will be delivered to the designated parent, bridal party member, or they will be secured by Occasions By M&K staff and delivered the next day to the bride and groom. How the gifts are handled are confirmed at the final meeting with the client prior to the wedding.
A. We are happy to call those few remaining guests who haven't sent in their RSVP's.
Q. I don't need an event coordinator on site for my event. Do you provide a service that helps find vendors such as a DJ, Florist, Decorator?
A. Absolutely. As a full service company, our services are customized to the needs of the client.
A. Once we agree on the services that are to be provided, we require 50% of the fee at that time. The remaining fee can be paid in increments with the balance due no later than 20 days prior to the event.
A. No, we do not collect a fee, earn a referral or bonus from vendors we recommend and are subsequently hired by you. We will recommend vendors based on the type of event vision you present, your budget, your style preference, etc.
A. We prefer to find out what type of event you envision and then provide the services that will ensure a successful event. Every event is different and the services we provide are customized to your event.
