Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between a Planner and Stylist?

A Planner handles all the logistics for an event such as establishing and maintaining the budget, securing the venue and vendors, creating timelines, providing etiquette advice, etc. A Stylist, also known as a Designer, is the creative pulse behind all the aesthetics needed to bring the décor design concept to fruition which include color palette selection, stationery, centerpieces, tablescape setting, cake, lighting and so much more.

Can I hire you separately for planning or design?

Yes and no. Design is an integral part of who we are and what we do. Therefore, you can hire us only for design, but you can't hire us just for planning. We must be involved in the design of every APSWE event to ensure a perfect setting that is chic, detailed and professionally executed. 

What types of events do you do?

We do it all! Although the majority of our work is related to weddings, we are available to plan and style any celebration you can think of including but not limited to; Baby showers, Kids parties, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet Sixteens, Galas - just to name a few.

How many events a year do you do?

We are all about quality versus quantity when it comes to providing a celebrity planning and design experience. Therefore, we take on a limited number of events each year to ensure the utmost integrity of our work.
