HOW MANY STAFF MEMBERS WILL BE AT MY EVENT?

ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR MY WEDDING DATE?

DO YOU EXECUTE THE OVERALL VISION, OR ARE YOU MORE OF A PRODUCER WHO BRINGS IN A DESIGNER?

The Debbie Bender Design team prefers to execute your overall vision, and we do have suggested vendors that we work closely with but there are not limitations! We have an expansive decor inventory. Occasionally, we need to outsource items such as chairs, specialty lighting and cutlery. We coordinate with the rental vendor for delivery, set up and pick up.
