What is really important for anyone planning a wedding or a event is this...... the more people you invite the more you will spend to have them there. You don't have a big budget for a wedding or event? That's fine, don't have 400 people showing up.
Let's talk about vendors. Most events and weddings have a Planner, Videographer, Photographer, Florist, Stationer, Makeup, Hair, A/V, and DJ at minimum. This can land you in the $30-$100K range based on your needs. If it's a corporate event, your A/V and decor is more.
Then we have to talk about decor. I'll use a reception table as an example. Most linen cost $85-$125. Centerpieces for one table can easily be $500-$1000. Then factor is chairs, chargers, plates, stemware if you don't want the venue's stuff. A table would cost you $1000 easy
If you are having an event that is outside, you now have to factor in infrastructure. That means a tent, sub flooring, flooring, heat/cooling, generators, etc. These things cost money to operate. Having a tent for a event or wedding will easily cost $30k to $100K
When you pay for a wedding or an event, you are paying for labor to solely provide a service to you and your guests + food. You are not sharing the cost of this with another wedding or event. Because of this, your wedding or event will have a higher cost per person.
One of the biggest misconceptions is food and beverage. Stop comparing the food of a event or wedding to how much you pay at a restaurant. A restaurant does not have enough people to service your event or wedding and the cost of labor is spread to all guests which makes it less
A lot of people are really clueless when it comes to how much events and weddings actually cost. In many cases it's double what you are thinking and if it's an outside event or wedding where we bring everything, it's triple that. These things cost money.
someone call Essence, we have a wedding to report.

If yo collards don’t look like this come Thanksgiving, should you really be making greens? Humph 🤷🏾‍♂LH

#Eventprofs played a part in what took place at #Astroworld and could have prevented the atmosphere that was created resulting in eight deaths and dozens of injuries. Here's how to stop this from happening again. theconversation.com/astroworld-tra…
Condola can’t trust him but can trust him enough to make a baby? #InsecureHBO
Condola and Lawrence are a confirmation that it’s ok to stay single �#InsecureHBOO
I’m surprised they lasted 4 months #InsecureHBO
Doc: There’s been some ugly babies come through here. Lawrence: not my baby #Insecure #insecurehbo
Are they still roommates? #InsecureHBO
Keke is petty and I’m here for it #InsecureHBO
I mean how would one respond never knowing they was going to be a father? #InsecureHBO
If you don’t know what you want for yourself, you have no business trying to be with anyone.
The way I put this house together has me constantly debating if there’s a need to go out.
Always remember you validate yourself
Well, I was 5 when racism and white supremacy left me fatherless. Black and Brown children are devastated by racism every day. Teachers, parents, religious leaders, etc should be educating toward a world where that devastation doesn’t exist. That can’t happen without truth. twitter.com/cbsnews/status…

I pray that 2022 gives you a double portion giving you more than what 2019 and 2020 took from you.
the sooner you recognize procrastination as a natural and necessary part of your creative process the better and the more fun you’ll have doing it

A closet full of plastic hangers gives me pause.
This is what brands look like each time they try to use pop culture especially colloquialisms to apply to their brand. Stop It!
Do You Know What Reverse Discrimination Is? mailchi.mp/ac05c6a4ec92/t…
Shrinking myself to make us equal is not in my DNA.
People really get mad when you tell them discovery calls are 15-20 minutes. These are not strategy calls where I tell you how to plan an event or wedding. That happens after a contract is signed. Sitting on a call for an hour for someone who is still deciding is toxic.
May God have mercy on the inside of your mask
If we spent more time focusing on the people who are spending the money vs the people being forced to give money, perhaps a few things could be resolved. I don't believe anyone should be without a home, medical care, nor go hungry. But that would mean effective govt
A tweet went out about 2% of Elon Musk's wealth could end world hunger if given to the UN. Hmmm. How much money has the UN received over the decades and we still have world hunger and homelessness, and lack of good medical care? Same goes for the govt and how they collect tax
A lot of people think higher taxes for the wealthy will solve a lot of problems. It might I wonder when will the government actually hold itself accountable for its contribution as to why we are where we are. Taxing the rich so you can do everything but help, aint it
Finally finished this closet. Open concept or no?
My clients have money but I’ll be damn if I recommend a catering company that’s trying to charge $350 a person when the market value for catering is less. I’d move the entire event if that means saving them money.
For those who think hybrid events are a thing of the past, let @salesforce prove that virtual and hybrid events are going to stick around for some time. Check this out on @BizBash. bizbash.com/event-tech-vir…
Sir crack a book, ask Siri..hell even ask Alexa because you are voting against something you have no idea about and yet are ok with it because you believe it hinders your whiteness. twitter.com/TheGoodLiars/s…
I cringe each time I see any event organization that says they are committed to #DiversityEquityandInclusion have all white or white passing people leading their organization. You can "support" DEI all you want, but you are still perpetuating inequality.
Never settle for life. Always chose it first.
Brides are warned their wedding dresses could take a YEAR to arrive and are advised to buy them early as supply chain disruption could mean late deliveries of gowns, veils and headpieces. #weddingplanning dailymail.co.uk/femail/article…

Worked my client’s wedding last night and had to team up with one of the best photographers I know @TunjiSarumi. When we in the building you know your wedding will be fly.
Today I get to create something special for these two amazing people 📸@TunjiSarumiiV
I'll continue to say this to folks who are recently engaged: You DO NOT have to get married right after your engagement. If you don't have the time to manage your life as is, you wont have time to plan a wedding. #WeddingPlanning isn't - planner here's what I need and das it
