FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Do you offer rentals?
A: We have a large, beautiful selection of decor inventory; however, all decor rentals are reserved for Full Design Clients. We do not offer rentals as a stand-alone service.
Q: Do you have a minimum spend?
A: Yes we do. Our minimum spend will vary based on the time of year (peak-season rates are higher than off-season, holidays are higher than non-holidays, etc). The minimum spend will also depend on where your event is taking place. The further you are from Ottawa the higher than minimum spend will be. Our starting rates are listed on our Contact Page.
Q: What do your services include?
A: Sage Designs is a full service event design firm. We offer decor rentals, backdrops, ceiling installations, floral decor, wedding party flowers, day-of stationery design (i.e. place cards and seating charts), and a selection of linens and napkins. We customize proposals for each of our clients based on their particular style and needs. Our team also takes care of the entire installation and dismantling of our decor.
Q: Can you offer a single service, like a ceiling installation?
A: Our team is happy to help out with a single aspect of your event design (though, truth be told, we prefer to do it all, haha!). That said, our minimum spend will still apply regardless of the number of services provided.
Q: Do you work with artificial flowers?
A: We love artificial flowers for very specific applications. We'll often use artificial foliage and flowers in ceiling installations and backdrops. That said, when it comes to bouquets & centrepieces, we strictly work with fresh flowers.
Q: Who provides your flowers?
A: Our team creates all of our floral arrangements in-house. We have a large, beautiful floral studio and a very talented team of designers.
Q: Can you take more than one wedding/event a day/weekend?
A: Yes. We have a large installation team who help us with the execution of our events. As such, we're able to take on multiple events each weekend. That said, we do limit the number of events we can take based on the scale of each.
Q: How far out should I book?
A: Clients typically reach out a year or more before their event date. If your date is less than a year away, please reach out ASAP to confirm availability. We encourage clients to book as soon as they have their date and venue locked in. We take a limited number of events each weekend and popular weekends fill up quickly.
Q: How can I find out if you're available?
A: Reach out using our Contact Form and we'll be able to quickly let you know if we're still available for your event date. If we're not available, we'll provide you with a list of trusted decorators you could reach out to instead. If we ARE available we'll send you details on how to proceed.
If you still have questions, please reach out! We'd love to hear from you!
