How do we stay in touch about the details for my event?
No emails or phone calls are too many for us. Please call, email, or text any time you have concerns or questions. We will respond to you as soon as possible (generally within 24 hours).
Will you charge me for an initial event planning consultation?
No, we make our initial event planning consultation free to you. We use this introductory consultation to get to know you and your needs. We want to understand the details of your event as well as you do.
I’m holding an event at an outside vendor. The venue already has an on-site event coordinator. Do I still need Calabash Events as an event planner?
An event venue coordinator and an event planner handle different responsibilities. Basically, a venue event coordinator handles details and represents the staff for the venue you’ve selected. An event planner, however, works on your behalf. Your event planner helps you make sure that your vision gets executed.

We’re happy to speak with you about your event budget. Please contact us, and we’ll be happy to meet with you to discuss budgets and costs further.
How much time should I allow in advance when planning my event?
No time is too early to start planning for your event. As soon as you have the event you want to create, please reach out to us. We’ll create a customized plan specific to your event.
What are some of your busiest times of the year for events?
We handle planning for events throughout the year. Our peak time ranges from the spring through early fall months.
