Consultation Services

Laura Michaud, accessory designer at The Maine Square trying on a bow tie with one of her clients

"I am so happy that you have chosen The Maine Square to help you find the perfect ties and pocket squares for your wedding or special event! I am honored to be your personal accessory stylist!

MY PROMISE TO YOU IS TO DO MY BEST TO FIND EXACTLY THE PERFECT FABRIC STYLE AND PATTERN FOR YOUR SPECIAL OCCASION ACCESSORIES, AS WELL AS ANY MONOGRAM OR EMBROIDERED DESIGN YOU WOULD LIKE INCLUDED. 

The cost for my stylist services is $99 and include the following:

  • Up to five virtual meetings with me. I want to make sure we get this right for you, and communication will be essential. I will always have at least two weeks of availability for you to choose from on my calendar. 

  • Up to five fabric samples for you to choose from.

  • Unlimited email and telephone correspondence throughout the project. I promise to answer your email and phone messages within 24 hours.

The $99 fee will only go into effect when you confirm that you would like to work with me and electronically sign my agreement form, which I will email to you. I will itemize the agreement form to see what you are paying for as far as the consultation and research part of your project. I will always be available to answer any questions you may have regarding the agreement form before you electronically sign it. After you sign the electronic agreement form, you will email it back to me, and then you will be sent an itemized invoice that you will pay online. Once that is paid in full, you will schedule your first virtual meeting with me!

We will discuss your ideas in-depth and decide what types of fabric samples you would like me to order for you. Once you receive your selections, we will meet virtually again to discuss your choice(s). After you decide on your fabric, we will discuss any personalized features you may want, such as monograms or embroidered designs, and whether or not these features will work with your fabric choice(s).

When you make your final decisions, I will then email you a second electronic invoice that will be itemized and broken down to see the cost and quantities of each item you have requested to order. After you look over that second invoice and pay in full, I will get to the most exciting part of the project; I order the materials and begin designing and making your personalized accessories! 

*Please remember, the $99 fee for working with me does not include the finished product cost, which is determined by how many you need me to make. The more you order, the price goes down on each item! Here is the link to my value packages if you would like to take a look. > Value Packages

*An additional $5 fee will be applied to each monogrammed and embroidered item.

*Coupons do not apply to custom orders.

*Some people decide to do all the research themselves and then come to me to do the sewing, monogramming, and embroidery. Some people supply their fabric, which is fine, but please be aware that some materials will not work for ties and pocket squares. I am always up for discussing with you! If you decide to do all the research yourself and supply your fabric, my stylist fee will not apply. Instead, you would pay for my $20 hourly rate. The total cost for your project will vary based on how many items you are ordering. We will discuss. Value Packages do not apply if you are supplying your fabric.
