The BEST wedding and event design firm in NYC and San Diego, specializing in casual elegance. We offer a variety of price points to accommodate various budgets.
Full event design pricing varies based on the location of the venue, time between the date of booking and the date of the event, complexity of the event, guest count, number of events being held, anticipated hours required to design the event and the complexity of the event installation. After an initial phone consultation, we can give you a more clear picture of pricing, but you can generally expect for Full Event Design to range from $12,000 to $18,000. All decorative items are additional to the fee for our creative designs and time, and you pay all of your vendors directly so there is full transparency of costs.

"[Rock Paper Scissors Events] was absolutely the best investment we could have made in regards to our ‘Big Day’. From our initial meeting with Ara, we knew we wanted to work with her.... She helped us create a budget we were comfortable with and took the time to ensure that we got the most out of every dollar we were spending. The result was not only cost effective, but truly the most beautiful, unique and elegant evening imaginable. Throughout the entire process Ara was an absolute pleasure to work with from the initial meeting down to the day of the event. Not only is she incredibly talented, she is also patient, responsive and a true professional. I would highly recommend Rock Paper Scissors to any couple."

"I was unsure about whether I wanted to work with a professional on planning our wedding... it seemed like a really fancy thing to do, and I wasn’t sure spending money on a designer was a good use of our budget. At the same time, I had never planned a wedding before, and had no idea where to start. Almost as soon as we started talking to Ara, I knew that working with her was a must. She is not exaggerating when she says how much she values getting to know you as a couple, and incorporating that information into her design. She was kind, good-humored, and truly interested. More importantly, she is extremely knowledgeable about her field. Ara connected us with amazing vendors, and guided us through the process of picking the perfect ones for us, taking into account our personalities, styles, and budget."

"Ara was so helpful in executing my vision for my wedding. She is incredibly knowledgeable about wedding resources, has an impeccable eye, is responsive and professional, and worked within my budget. I honestly don't know how I would have done it without her. I cannot recommend her more highly."
