- How do you work?
Once we have received your enquiry, we usually like to arrange a telephone consultation to ensure we are the right fit for your wedding/event. This is usually followed by a meeting at our office or at your venue. We are able to liaise over email and/or telephone if you’re unable to meet with us for any reason.
- Do you only serve weddings in the Midlands?
We travel throughout England and Wales to provide amazing wedding and event decor. There is no difference in price, however we will charge extra for additional travel time, travel expenses and accommodation where necessary.
- When should I book and how early should I choose my decor?
We recommend you secure your date as soon as possible, most good wedding suppliers will get booked up 1-2 years in advance. We recommend paying £150 to save the date with us if you’re not quite decided on what you’d like. This is non-refundable but will be deducted from your final invoice.
- When do I need to pay?
Once you are happy with your quote, an invoice will be raised. The deposit amount varies between 25% and 50% and is due 14 days from the date of the invoice. The balance is due no later than six weeks before the wedding/event. You will be invoiced separately for any third party services that are booked by Inspired Events Ltd on your behalf.
- How many weddings/events do you do in a day?
We usually book just one wedding/event per day, however if you’re hosting a particularly large wedding/event you may be the only one that week!
- Do you have experience in Indian, African, Jewish weddings?
We have lots of experience in weddings of all sizes and ethnicities. Although we don’t specialise in one particular kind of wedding, we do cater to luxurious weddings and successfully compete with larger companies to provide a more personal and VIP experience.
- Does Inspired Events have a show room?
We hold all client consultations at our home office in Marston Green, near Birmingham Airport, and we are able to provide samples of decorations that fit your specification during your consultation. We have a varied inventory of decor and regularly source additional decor, based on each individual client, as and when required. We are currently considering moving into a larger commercial space from 2019.
- What do I need to bring to my consultation?
Please bring as much information as possible to your consultation, including pictures of your gown and bridesmaids dresses, colour swatches, photographs of decorations and flowers that you love, photographs of the church, reception venue, etc. You’re also very welcome to bring any friends or family along for help and support.
- We are from London/New York/China – will you be able to liaise with us by email?
If you are from another part of the UK or anywhere else in the world we can plan your complete decor requirements by email as long as you can make regular contact and send all the necessary images to us.
On the Day
- Do you set up all decorations on the day?
All Inspired Events décor products include full installation! If we’ve arranged decor for your wedding/event from a third party, we will charge an hourly rate to set this up on the day for you. An estimate will be provided once you’re confirmed what you’d like to book.
- What time do you set up and breakdown?
Once you have confirmed your contact at the venue, we will liaise directly with them to get in as early as possible to start the set up process. The venue will also determine if we need to breakdown all décor immediately after the wedding/event or alternatively, arrive bright and early the following morning. (Please note, due to the requirements of the venue in very rare circumstances we may have to start removing decor half an hour before the wedding/event has finished).
- Why do I need an ‘On the Day Coordinator’?
Most venues will offer the services of an internal event co-ordinator or similar to assist you. This service is usually extremely limited and often it does not include a fully comprehensive co-ordination service on the day of your wedding/event. We regularly see dreaded situations where clients have not considered our ‘on the day services’ and their caterer doesn’t turn up or the lighting guys don’t have the floor plan or the venue haven’t put the right number of tables out. If there is nobody there to rectify these problems they can turn into disasters, which ultimately ruin months (or even years!) of planning and lots of money! From only £250 you can be worry free knowing that we’re there to ensure a seamless process from start to finish.
If you have any other questions please contact us and we’ll do our very best to help!
