Am I supposed to tip the event staff?
Our event staff is dedicated to providing exceptional service and ensuring that your event runs smoothly. As a part of our service, a service fee is included in the overall cost, which covers the compensation for our staff members. This service fee is taxable as per applicable regulations.
While tipping is not mandatory, it is customary to show appreciation for outstanding service by leaving a gratuity. If you feel that the event staff has gone above and beyond to make your event truly special, you are welcome to leave a gratuity as a gesture of gratitude.
The decision to leave a tip and the amount of the gratuity is entirely at your discretion.
Please note that if you decide to leave a gratuity, it is separate from the service fee included in the overall cost of the event. The gratuity goes directly to the staff members as an additional acknowledgment of their exceptional service.
Feel free to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding tipping or gratuities with our event coordinator. We are here to ensure that your event is a success and that you feel comfortable with all aspects of our service.
When do I need to get a final guest count to you?
To ensure that we can provide the best possible service and prepare accordingly, we kindly request that you provide us with the final guest count at least 2 weeks prior to your event. Having an accurate count allows us to plan and allocate the necessary resources, such as food, beverages, staff, and seating arrangements, to accommodate your guests effectively.
By providing the final guest count within this timeframe, we can fine-tune the details of your event and make any necessary adjustments to the menu and logistics. It also enables us to ensure that we have ample time to secure any additional items or make arrangements for any specific requirements related to your guest count.
We understand that the guest count may change slightly leading up to the event, and we are prepared to accommodate reasonable adjustments. However, keeping us informed of any significant changes as early as possible allows us to make the necessary adjustments smoothly and minimize any potential disruptions to your event.
Please note that the final guest count provided 2 weeks prior to the event will be used as the basis for billing and planning purposes. Adjustments beyond this point may be subject to limitations and availability.
When discussing your event with our team, we will provide you with clear instructions on how to provide the final guest count and ensure that all necessary details are communicated in a timely manner.
Are you insured?
Yes, as a top event planner in Boston, we understand the importance of maintaining comprehensive insurance coverage for our services. We prioritize the safety and well-being of our clients and their guests, and having appropriate insurance coverage is an essential part of our commitment to delivering a worry-free experience.
What is your cancellation policy?
Our cancellation policy is outlined in detail within the contract that we provide for each event. We understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise, and we strive to maintain a fair and transparent cancellation policy that protects both our clients and our business.
To ensure that you fully understand the cancellation policy and any potential implications, we encourage you to carefully review the contract and reach out to our team with any questions or concerns. We are here to assist you and provide clarity on the terms outlined in the contract.
Please note that cancellations made within a certain timeframe may be subject to fees or penalties as specified in the contract. These fees help cover the costs and preparations that have already been made in anticipation of your event.
We strive to maintain open and transparent communication with our clients throughout the event planning process, including discussions around cancellations or changes to the original event details. Our goal is to work with you to find the best possible solution in case of unexpected circumstances.
