Today’s tip comes from Tom Ursini, general manager of The Party Concierge:

Look and Book Ahead

“Try to be as accommodating as possible when it comes to re-scheduling or postponing booked dates with your vendors. Sometimes the new date is not available and deposits or payments made to the vendor may be non-refundable. The vendor may only be able to schedule one or two events on a given date and once that date is filled, they cannot re-book a request they turned down. We put our time and work into the meetings, proposals, orders, samples, etc. that are required to fulfill the requested products and services.” – Tom Ursini, general manager of The Party Concierge, Inc.
