Full Event Design Services

To create a truly cohesive, signature Rock Paper Scissors Events look, we recommend investing in our Full Event Design service

 

We begin the process with an in depth consultation about your event to get to know your very specific style, needs and goals, and don't worry, we have some thought provoking questions to tease out details from you if you don't know where to start.

 

We then work to create decor for you in house, work with you to hire the right vendors to fit your vision and budget for what we don't make for you in house, and we manage all aesthetic vendors from consultation to contract to event day installation so that you only have to step in to make final decisions and give approval.   We will happily work hand in hand with a planner, or you can hire one of our talented coordinators (NYC only at the moment) to assist with the day-of management.  

 

On the day of the event, we bring a dedicated team to style, hang, arrange, drape and beautifully style every last detail, and then come back at the end of the event to make it look like it never happened.

PRICING

 


"Ara was the best investment we made in our wedding. We were nervous about hiring a stylist instead of a planner, but Ara's guidance was thorough enough that she made every part of the design/ decor easier. She was so calming when we were panicked and she totally understood our vision and translated it to real life. She managed our florist and rentals, worked closely with our venue and ensured that on the day of our wedding, everything looked perfect"

- Hilary Sloan, Wedding Client

"Hiring Ara was the smartest decision we made throughout our entire wedding planning process. She is thorough, knowledgeable, and creative. Ara is the perfect blend of a designer and project manager. She paid attention to every detail and often remembered items or ideas that were discussed and we had forgotten."

   - Megan Pearson, Wedding Client

"Rock Paper Scissors has perfected the delightful combination of reliability and creativity.  Ara, Alice and team are superb — from details-oriented planning to timely communication to thoughtful "surprise and delight" elements to polished execution, events are a breeze in their capable hands....Rock Paper Scissors is my trusted go-to agency for creative events."      

- Meg Smith, Corporate Client
