The reality of the coveted “vendor discount” is actually that it is a hallmark for planning companies that are promising special prices when in fact they are taking kickbacks (see FAQ #5 above). There is no such thing as a discount that anyplanner would be able to secure for you, since each of your vendors is a creative professional and very likely a small business whose very livelihood and reputation is built on each and every job they book, being paid for the value of the time and services they work hard to deliver to our clients. If a vendor has a volume consumer base with business-to-business discounts that they are occasionally able to offer to clients under special circumstances, then rest assured that our company is working to secure the very best price for you that each vendor can offer, for the very best value in products and services to serve your event goals and financial targets.
Even better than a vendor discount, because of our reputation and years of experience in the event industry, our vendor teams want to work with our teams at Ruby & Pearl Events and our sister company, Sapphire Events, to align their brand with ours. As a result, we often find ourselves in the fortunate position of having the best vendors in the business delivering goods and services above and beyond the call of duty, in an effort to earn future business and referrals from our company in exchange for a job well done. Since our reputation is one of the best event planners in the country, our clients benefit from the extra effort and high quality our team of creative vendors put forth on any and every event with our company.
