SPONSOR OF THE MONTH

Moms: As Elite as the CIA…Well Almost

MOMS-2-e1406504042463

Andrea Keeney is a writer, blogger, mother, and wife. She is the creator of the blog, Parenting with Parents as well as the author of the book, Moms: As Elite as the C.I.A….Well Almost. When she isn’t pursuing her dreams of writing she is taking care of her three small children.

Attention! There is an elite group of women walking freely among the average citizens of the world. These freakishly instinctive beings are capable of physical, mental, and emotional acts of greatness. They tend to appear irritated, exhausted, and are almost always bombarded by very tiny renegades who are whining and/or yelling. These women come in many shapes and sizes, however they all respond to a single name: Mom. If you know one of these women, if you are one of these women, or if you are going to be one of these women, you need this book!

Like Tonia says, sometimes there are things that you just need to let slide off the burner completely in order to take care of the items that are the most important. I absolutely love the analogy “eat the frog” because that’s one of my pitfalls – putting off those tasks that HAVE to be done in favor of doing something that I WANT to do (housework v. blogging). If I “eat the frog” and just get the nasty over with – then I have more time to spend on doing what I love to do. It’s a concept that I preach to my two boys on a daily basis, yet I have trouble doing it myself. This was my most favorite post this week and “Eat the Frog!” is now taped to my computer monitor as a reminder to get the yuck done and out the way so I can do the fun stuff!”

Ask to review their contract.

• Reviewing the contract is not only for the designer’s protection, but for yours also. After all, you will be asked to sign it, and reviewing it prior to signing will ensure it is not one-sided in favor of the designer. Make sure the contract addresses such issues as: What happens in the event deadlines are missed? Do they outsource the work? If so, what rights do you have regarding a missed deadline? If they are a “solopreneur” what are your rights, if they are unable to deliver due to an unforeseen illness or circumstance?

• Yes, as the client, you may request revisions be made to the contract prior to signing. If a request for contract revision is met with resistance, then try to find a happy compromise or continue your wedding stationery designer selection process.

Evaluate whether this is their hobby, hustle or career.

• Are they on Yelp.com?
• Are they registered with the Better Business Bureau?
• Do they do this full time or is it a hobby?
• Do they have a business license?
• Do they have a website?
• Do they invest in their presentations?
• Do they have business cards?
• What is their turnaround time?

Check out their website.

• Their About Page will generally provide you with great insight regarding the focus of the company or designer and reveal to you what they are really all about. Are they rambling or straight to the point?

• Yes, you should go through their website with a keen eye and look for typos and grammatical mistakes. If their website, which is their presentation to the world, contains a lot of mistakes and/or excuses, chances are, their attention to detail is not where it needs to be and you may be in store for lots of proofing errors.

Check their social media.

• Have they ever been unprofessional via social media? Argued with a bride? Engaged a client in an aggressive manner?

• Do they post their work (your product) with your permission?

• Does their social media get updated consistently?

• Do they positively engage?

He popped the question and you said “I DO”! Now what? What is the first step in planning the wedding of your dreams? Well, the answer to that question is easy, but only, if you first prioritize and make a list of the most important tasks involved in planning a wedding such as: selecting the perfect date, selecting the perfect venue and then simply fill in the blanks with all the special details from there. With list in hand, today let us discuss selecting your wedding stationery designer. If you are creative by nature, one suggestion is, that you can opt to design the invitations yourself by using sites such as Minted.com or WeddingPaperDivas.com, which are two of my favorites. However, if you want to take a more hands off approach, another option is to retain the services of a professional stationery designer. Keep in mind that, should you decide to go with this option, there are a few points to consider.

Wedding Paper Divas 30% Off Sitewide Cyber Week 300x250

As a certified event designer, and Atlanta socialite, I have had the privilege and honor of working with a few of the most skilled wedding stationery designers in the industry, who have created the most SPECTACULAR and STUNNING invitations imaginable. There is a flip side to all of this though, and it is my goal as an event designer, to make you aware, that it is important for you to also do your due diligence when it comes to selecting the right designer to meet your wedding needs, because truth be told, not all designers are created equal. Therefore, here are seven tips to assist you on this journey.

Always check references of work and client services.

• Ask around outside of their circle to see if they have delivered on time or had to reschedule dates etc…

• Personally check all references and check them twice.

• Google them. Check with professional wedding sites for their work etc…

• Just because they come highly recommended does not mean their “work ethic” or “customer service” matches the recommendation.

• Oftentimes, people recommend friends they have never actually worked with. So do not be afraid to ask the question, “Have you ever personally worked with them?” Be cautious if they say “No.”

• Some unethical stationery designers, write their own reviews, use bogus emails or recruit family and friends to write positive reviews for them. For this reason, be leery of a designer with all “Five Star” reviews, proceed with caution. Remember, No one is perfect!

• Also, when checking references or their online presence, do they have multiple website addresses which lead to the same site? Or multiple phone numbers on their site(s)? What about multiple addresses? If you come across this, my advice is for you to proceed with extreme caution or better yet, run as fast as you can!

Ask about their experience.

• Ask if they are proponents of continuing education classes. This is very important because continuing education ensures that they are well informed of the latest trends, fonts, skills and more.

• Ask how often they go back for continuing educations classes and when was the last time they attended one.

• Ask what professional organizations they belong to and check with those organizations. If they do not belong to at least one of the organizations listed below, I suggest you not use their services because it may mean they are not invested in themselves or the craft.

~ ABC (Association of Bridal Consultants)
~ AFWPI (Association For Wedding Professionals International)
~ AACWP (American Association Of Certified Wedding Planners)
~ WIPA (Wedding Industry Professionals Association)

• Ask to view their portfolio. A well-established stationery designer will have a professional portfolio they are willing to share with potential clients, which will include a variety of stationery and invitation styles, save the date cards, table setting accessories etc…

Ask about their price points.

• Personally speaking, proof of a first-rate stationery designer, is one who offers at least two price points. It does not matter the type of clientele or budget they cater to, two price points offers to a potential client, diversity and the willingness, on the part of the designer, to work within various levels of design and budgets.

**To be continue next week on Wedding Wednesday. This is a two part series so be sure to check back next Wednesday.
