FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions about One Day To Treasure
How do I rent items and do you have a price list? Our vintage china and place settings are rented separately. All of our other décor is offered in packages only. Choose one of our wedding décor packages, or we may be able to customize a package for you. Just let us know what you would like. We also offer our wedding coordination customers many options to add centerpieces and décor to their coordination package!
What is the difference between wedding coordination and wedding planning? When you use a wedding coordinator, you are in charge of choosing your own vendors, meeting & communicating with them, deciding on your decor style and colors, researching & buying the accessories you need, etc. A wedding planner will handle many of those tasks for you. When you select a One Day To Treasure wedding management package, you will handle the major planning tasks yourself but will still receive help with all the logistics of your wedding planning during the final 2-3 months, plus full wedding day coordination. We will communicate with your vendors around 2 weeks before the wedding, verify information, develop a detailed master timeline, coordinate your rehearsal, and much more.
Is there a minimum china rental order required? If you are renting china, a $50 minimum order is required unless you are combining with a decor package or wedding coordination.
Can I pick up my items?If you rent china, we will deliver most of the time, since the china is quite fragile and it would be difficult to transport multiple crates of dishes in a regular vehicle. Most of our other packages involve our delivery, but smaller table setting orders or customized packages may be picked up by the client.
How much is delivery and where do you deliver? Our Pearls & Lace and Treasures Only packages include delivery, which usually is within a 40 mile radius of our location (including Huntsville, Madison, Decatur/Hartselle and Athens/Limestone County). If you rent our vintage china and combine with Pearls & Lace or your wedding coordination package, you will not pay a delivery fee. Otherwise, we charge a $50 fee for china delivery, pack up and pick up at end of the evening.
