Rock Paper Scissors Events is a fabulous little design studio. Unlike traditional planners, we think of ourselves as wedding interior designers and stylists. We are design focused and specialize in advising on wedding decor and styling.

We think of all of those thoughtful, fun, whimsical little details and execute them perfectly. If you have been looking for an alternative to a wedding planner, here we are.

{Rock}: You got your ring {Paper}: You'll send out the invitations {Scissors} And now you need some thoughtful tailoring of all the ideas out there into a cohesive and beautiful event . . . Rock Paper Scissors Events

Hourly consulting is $100 per hour, and partial event design begins at $4,500. We also offer Full Design Services, and now have Month of Coordination, which can be added to any design package.

With a few hours of consulting you can focus on help within a couple of areas like:

*escort cards*
*centerpieces*
*color palette*
*rentals/linens*
*invitations*
*favors*
*lighting*
*accent pieces/props*
*or just general creative concept suggestions
and sourcing suggestions*

Beyond wedding consultation, we're also available for engagement shoot and day-of styling as well as all your DIY needs.


Please see our website for full information, or even better, drop us a line or give us a call. We'd love to chat to see if we can help! Read our FAQs about the difference between a planner and a designer.

    I began working with Ara at Rock Paper Scissors about a year before my wedding. I chose her because I wanted something more than the typical floral arrangement/centerpiece. She did an exceptional job in designing my wedding from ceremony to cocktail hour to the reception. Ara's ideas were creative, beautiful and she worked with my budget which was so important.

    Ara and her team decorated my venue, City Winery, for the reception, then while we were all in the cocktail hour they tore down the ceremony decor and reset for the reception. It was totally seamless from my view and very impressive. The best part about it is no one from my family or group of friends had to go to the venue early to set up or miss cocktail hour to decorate.

    Ara's experience in the wedding industry really showed while I was working with her. If I was ever in need of a recommendation or needed direction, she happily helped and offered excellent options. Through Ara I was able to find my hair stylist and my event coordinator (also of RPS - review below). Additionally, her taste is impeccable. Whenever I couldn't make a decision I relied on Ara's expertise and our wedding was absolutely gorgeous.

    Ara also introduced me to Christina at Rock Paper Scissors and I hired Christina as my day of coordinator. Christina was experienced, friendly, and like Ara, had the patience of a saint! She started working with me about a month before my wedding and (thankfully!) became the point person for all my vendors. We had a ridiculous situation with the Trump Soho in which my suite kept being changed and each time Christina contacted all my vendors to update them on the correct room number. She worked her magic behind the scenes and if anything did go wrong, I never knew about it and the situation was fixed. She and her team did an excellent job.

    Rock Paper Scissors was a great company to work with and I couldn't have pulled off my wedding day without them! Thank you Ara and Christina!!

    Ara @ Rock Paper Scissors was such a joy to work with, I couldn't recommend her services more highly! I gave her minor direction and then left it to her to create and wow, did she deliver! Our wedding was stunning, beyond what I could have imagined and the bouquets she created were so beautiful I cried when I couldn't take them home to Australia! My guests were blown away by the decor and have not stopped raving about it. Thanks again Ara for making our wedding so beautiful and easy!

    Ara was completely professional and thorough. Ara helped us turnaround a wedding production for 84 people under 13 weeks- we couldnt have achieved this without her support and committment to the job!
