After you have selected and ordered your dresses, we would be delighted to meet with you and provide you with written custom plans, along with pricing suggestions for your wedding at no charge. We meet with our clients for consultations on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 10 am-4pm. Typically we do not accept consultations Friday-Sunday, so that our primary focus and attention can be spent creating weddings and special events on the weekends. We are closed on Mondays. During off peak season, after hour and Saturday appointments are available and can be secured with a credit card deposit of $100.00 in the event that you forfeit your appointment for any reason.
A deposit of $750.00, or an estimated 20% of your total invoice, whichever is greater, is required to secure the date on our calendar, and is applied to your balance. 30% of your total invoice is due 90 days prior to your wedding with the remaining balance due in full no later than 17 days prior to the wedding.
Again, thank you for your interest in Carolyn Shepard Design Group! We look forward to meeting with you soon!
