We all know weddings can be very expensive and while I would love to work with a big budget bride many potential clients are trying to work with much smaller budgets (more often than not with no budget in mind at all... just as cheap as they can make it but with all the bling) and I would like to find a middle road with these brides. I am a planner/coordinator and while researching the market found no other advertised planners within a hour drive from me and many much further. I have yet to research silk floral designers. That is another branch in my business. I also make custom wedding gowns and so alterations. My example of what I'm dealing with is a bride who wanted silk bouquets for her, her bridesmaid, and boutonnieres for the groom and best man. I worked out the cost and gave her the estimate and she responded... I can do it myself cheaper at Walmart … I get this often. She then wanted a custom gown for less than $150 and preferably under $100... no I can't do that. Her next correspondence is "can you fix this?" and sent me this photo... and "oh can you do it for around $25?". I make it a point to try my best to work within the bride's budget if at all possible. Any assistance finding the middle ground and a more suitable target client would be greatly appreciated.
