Second step: Check your inbox for a confirmation email with your booking details and payment options. All reservations required a non-refundable, retainer to confirm the date and time.

You will choose your personal florals from our eco-friendly, keepsake options (You can also send us your inspirations for customized designs), prepare your timeline, book your hair & makeup, personalization ideas, and guide to obtain your marriage license.
Fourth step: Closer to your Pop-Up wedding date, we send you a questionnaire about the day-of logistics such as if you'll do a "first look", special shots you want the photographer to take, etc. Then we send out a master timeline and itinerary which will go over the whole day on a call via zoom!
Do I choose the venue and location?
Our Bespoke packages include a pre-selected venue in the package. This helps us offer the lowest cost possible to our clients. However, we have many venues we work with and happy to help you design a custom package with a venue of your choice. Elopement and Micro-weddings are always designed to your specifications.
Who handles the marriage license?
You're responsible for applying for the marriage license and turning it in to make it legal. Our experienced officiants can assist you with this. For more information on how to apply for a marriage license, contact the City Clerk's office in the city you are getting married in.
Can I purchase additional florals
Absolutely, our in-house florists will be happy to design your custom arrangements, so feel free to email us pictures of a floral style you love!
Does the price change if it's just the two of us?
The short answer is no - the price covers the cost of your venue, officiant, photographer, and florals and the amount of guests does not affect this number.
Are you LGBTQ+ friendly?
It's 2020, this shouldn't even be a question! Of course! If you are in love and want to get married we'd be delighted to work with you!
Can the photographer be the witness?
Can I see the photographers work before I book them?
Your photographer is part of the package. We will send you the photographer's details and you will be able to view their portfolios directly on each of their website.
What is included with the photographer?
You get the hour of photography, then all high resolution images are delivered via an online gallery where you can download, share, and print your photos!
I'm nervous about the quality of photos, how do I know the photographer is going to get what I want and in the style we like?
There is nothing that lasts longer from your day than your photos so we truly understand the importance of beautiful ones. We have carefully selected the photographers we use for Bespoke weddings. We believe that investing a large portion of your overall cost with professionals that we would be comfortable shooting at our own weddings. As far as your style, when we onboard our clients, we have a section about photography preferences and during that time you indicate your preferred style.
Who will be given my photos?
All of your vendors that are participating in your wedding will be given access to your photos for promotional reasons. As small business owners, we need the ability to showcase our work. It's the best way for us to bring in new business, such as yourself! Please understand that we know and respect your privacy and if there is a specific reason or request to not use your photos, we can discuss our parameters around those requests.
Can I use my own officiant?
We have really amazing officiants that we love to work with, However, we understand that some couples want to have someone special officiate their wedding. If you do bring your own officiant, we will apply for a credit to your package.
What type of ceremony do your officiants provide?
We can offer anything you want! Civil, Religious, Spiritual, Same Sex, Interfaith Ceremonies, etc. Our officiants also offer ceremony customization to fit your style.
Is there sound for the ceremony?
Yes, we make sure your guests can hear your vows and any music choices that you make.
Can we pick our songs?
Of course! We want this day to be about you and we want you to make it as personalized as you can. We make sure we understand your style of music, what your guests will like, and how to best accomplish your music needs.
What's a typical timeline?
Let’s use 10:00 am as your booking time for example. The ceremony would be from approximately 10:00-10:15 am and the rest of the time would be for taking photos, drinking champagne, and having some cake (optional add-on)!
Can I invite more than 20 guests?
Our business model is small and simple pop-up weddings with up to 20 of your closest loved ones. However, we understand 20 doesn’t fit everyone. Let us know which City and State you are interested in and we can let you know if it is possible to add more guests and if there is a fee.
Can I have a bridal party and do the bridesmaids count as guests?
Yes and yes they will be included in your guest count.
Do children count as guests?
If they need a chair, yes. If it is standing room only, we wouldn’t have to count them.
How far in advance should I book a package?
You should book as far in advance as possible to secure your date.
Do you plan Pop-Up receptions?
Yes we do! Our Elopement and Micro-wedding packages can be customized to include food and beverages to your celebration. Our team of planners will be happy to help you plan a post-ceremony reception.
Is there a place that I can get ready there?
Some of our locations have bridal suites, others are just the restroom area. Ask about your specific location. We recommend getting ready at your hotel for maximum relaxation. We can help you with the reservation.
What is on-site Event Management?
You can upgrade your package to include an on-site event manager for one hour to assist you with greeting guests and guiding them on where to sit, cue the groom to stand with the officiant, cue the bride when to walk down the aisle, put out your “reserved” cards, etc.
Do we setup anything?
No, we make sure that any personal items that are to be displayed are brought to us the morning of your wedding or at our welcome rehearsal and we display them for you, pack them back up and make sure they are in your car of choice at the end of your event. It's truly all about you. It means you get to focus on the day in the most relaxed state. Get a massage. Enjoy getting your hair and make-up done and know that it's all being taken care of.
What about decor?
One of the most time consuming parts of the wedding day is the decor set up. We know this because we do it all the time! We also know that it takes people much longer than they anticipate and is truly the wedding day stressor. So, we make sure your space is decorated beautifully and in trend. We keep things simple, but stunning. You can trust us to make sure the choice of decor for the day is one your guests will love and that you will be proud of.
I'm afraid I won't feel like my wedding is unique enough? How can we personalize and make it "us"?
Great question! We understand that this model might seem a bit standard and less personalized than you envisioned. Please know that we will make this day fully yours. When you contract with us, we give you various options to customize and personalize so that the day and space feels truly "yours".
What happens if it rains?
Some venues do have an indoor space as a backup in the event of rain and that would be listed on the package. If you are doing your Pop-Up in an outdoor space, we can move to a covered area nearby if one is available. If you desire to reschedule, we can try to work with everyone involved to reschedule to your new desired date, subject to their availability. Otherwise, as they say, the show must go on. Everyone brings their umbrellas and enjoys a beautiful rainy wedding, which makes for great photos. Ask us for some samples. If you feel rain would ruin your day, we highly recommend an indoor Pop-Up wedding package or an outdoor covered venue.
What is the booking process?
Please contact us to book your desired Pop-Up Wedding package to confirm availability in our calendar for your desired date and time. We will send you a contract and invoice to secure your date! Please note that we can not hold any dates due to the low costs of the packages, all services are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is a $1000 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your slot and the balance is due 30 days before your wedding. If you select upgrades, we will update your invoice. In our experience, we learned one bill = less stress. You pay us and we pay the vendors.
What happens if COVID restrictions force my venue to cancel my Pop-Up Wedding?
Pop-Up Weddings are non-reschedulable and non-refundable. Of course, we recognize we are living in crazy times and aim to provide you a beautiful day with peace of mind. If for any reason your chosen venue has to cancel your Pop-Up Wedding, we will work with the venue and your chosen vendors to reschedule you to a new date as soon as possible.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask us! We are here to make this fun and easy for you!
