About Apropos Creations

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How long have you been doing wedding and event planning?

We have been doing wedding, social, and corporate planning for over 10 years personally. Apropos Creations as a company was launched in September of 2009 and continuing to do what we love best!
 

How did you become a wedding planner?

Born to a very social mother who dragged me to every single birthday, reunion, school and church function, along with my husband who truly noticed my passion and how much I enjoyed planning our wedding, and coordinating friends and family’s wedding and events is really what got me started. My husband persisted to getting my wedding planning business off the ground almost every day from the day we got happily married 21 years ago.
 
 I finally faltered and so here I am.
 

We love your services and your portfolio. Everything sounds fantastic… So can you tell me what sets you apart from all the other wedding and event planners out there?

While I cannot speak for the other wedding and event coordinators out there I can, however, speak for Apropos Creations! As mentioned before, my business was founded on a passion that I have had for this business and with time, that passion only continues to build and get stronger! I believe in an excellent saying “Do what you say you are going to do, and when you are going to do it” and I continue to stand behind what I say and do! Your event, whether it is your big day or another special occasion in your life, will be treated with the utmost priority and detail down to the place setting! I have a bountiful amount of resources and contacts that I work with on a daily basis to help you create the event of your dreams and within your budget.
 

This all sounds so wonderful but it also seems expensive. Are we going to be able to afford it?

We have designed a variety of packages to fit everyone’s style, personality, and budget. These packages range from full wedding planning to “day of” wedding coordination. You will surely find one that will fit in your pocket.
 

Who do you work best with?

Apropos Creations can tailor these services to ANYONE! We however especially love working with brides and grooms that are willing to accept and are open to suggestions. Regardless of how much assistance you need, from complete guidance to a few tweaks, or to just be there to listen to you vent, we are there to support you in any way.
 

Who is not going to benefit from our help in planning and coordinating your wedding?

When we work with our clients, we expect them to be open and honest with us so you benefit from the services that you have hired us for, whether it is coordinating, planning or designing. This will help avoid any issues that may arise while we are working together in making your day special and flawless.
 

Will I lose control of my wedding if you are planning it for me?

As much as we love planning weddings, we know that this is not our wedding. We are here for you! Your wish is our command and all we are after is for you to enjoy this very special day, your wedding. We want what you want, a beautiful and immaculate wedding that you will always treasure throughout time and that is our pledge to you.
 

Will you work with vendors that I have already found and people I want to work with?

Most definitely! We see it as a window of opportunity to gain new resources in the industry and we love working with new vendors and getting to know and seeing how they work. I have always believed in working as a team regardless if we have worked or not worked with the vendors already chosen.
 

Do you belong to any organizations or associations?

We sure do. We currently belong to Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants (ACPWC) which is where we had gotten our training course from and they have monthly conferences to give support and to educate us with the current trends. We also belong to Wedding & Event Networking (WEN), here in Phoenix, AZ so we can build new and strengthen relationships with a variety of vendors locally.

Do you take credit cards and can we have a payment plan?

We take all types of payments from credit cards, checks, and of course, cash we offer a payment plan that will surely not break the bank. The full amount is divided up in four payments which will help put ease in your financial situation. The payment will be spread throughout from the time you accept the agreement all the way to one week before your wedding.
 

Do you take one wedding per day?

The maximum number of weddings we do a month is two. This will ensure that you are our focus and we won’t spread ourselves thin and will be unable to function at 100% for you.

About Jo Ann

 
I’ve always been on the path toward being the best wedding planner in Arizona, even as a little girl. I attended every gala, party, and function along with my mother, learning the nuances of what makes an event truly special. I have used that experience since high school in planning countless weddings and parties for friends and family as well as fundraisers and functions in the role of vice president and committee leader for the Parent Teacher Association.
 
It never occurred to me that I would eventually turn my natural talents and passion for planning events into a business! Witnessing the focus and attention to detail that I put into planning our wedding caused my husband to suggest that I consider being a full-time wedding planner. After attaining my wedding and event planning certification through the Association of Certified Professional Wedding Consultants in 2009, I started Apropos Creations, LLC to make it official.
 
Making your wedding dreams come true is what provides the magic that runs Apropos Creations. From stunning Southeast Asian weddings that span several days to lush multi-cultural weddings, my goal is to plan and execute events with the kind of personal service and inspiring ideas that make the journey as easy as possible for you from start to finish.
 
I provide wedding planning and event coordination services for Metro Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Sedona, Arizona. Additionally, I specialize in planning destination weddings for San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco (among other bay area cities) along with the Philippines and other international destination wedding locations.
