I took the liberty of asking for your favorite florist and planner in your area (thank you for your huge response), and I was very surprised to see by your comments that this is still a very confusing issue.
I received a few planners that acted as designers as part of their services, and designers that acted as planners. I am a firm believer of full service for your clients, however the big question is: How are you charging your clients for both of these services? Another question is: Does your client know the difference between the two roles?
I’d love to hear your response and give you my two cents next week.
