Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between you and a venue coordinator?
The easiest way to explain this difference is a venue coordinator's primary focus is anything pertaining to the VENUE and its operation and condition. At Blue Poppy Events, our primary focus is YOU, the client, and the overall success of your event.
While a VENUE coordinator will often assist with aspects of your wedding relating to set-up, catering, bartending, and overall venue logistics, their main objective is to ensure you have everything you need from their facility - cleaning, heating and cooling, parking, and anything else included in your contract with them.
An EVENT coordinator should be dedicated to making your day happier, your event smoother, and your stress level lower! Our services are centered on coordinating your vendors so that we can all work efficiently and effectively to ensure you, your family and guests can enjoy every moment of your event.
What inspires you?
While it can strike at any moment and from a variety of sources, our primary inspiration is the thought of binging joy into the lives of others as they see their vision for a beautiful, fun, or special event come to fruition. To see them enjoy every step of both the planning process and the actual event is our ultimate goal and purest inspiration.
Do you offer Day-of/Month-of Coordination
Yes and No.
Yes, we offer short-term coordination packages... but, NO, we do not refer to them as "day-of" or "month-of" because we do not believe we can truly get to know a client or their goals and dreams for their wedding or event in a single day or even in a single month.
Our "Event Management" package covers a time frame of ONE to THREE months prior to the actual event and is focused on helping those who have completed their event planning stage and are simply seeking someone to assist with the final details, creation of an event timeline, and oversight of the actual event.
We only offer a limited amount of Event Management services during our peak months and these packages may be booked no more than six months prior to your wedding day.
Do you only offer services in Houston?
No! We enjoy working in numerous areas surrounding Houston and, actually, well beyond that.
We have coordinated events in Louisiana, Arkansas, Florida, North Carolina, and California. We will happily consider working on events throughout the United States and even internationally. (*travel expenses may apply)
How are your prices determined?
Many individual factors go into setting our pricing for each individual's event proposal, including (but not limited to) time of year, location, number of guests, and services requested.
We pride ourselves on creating CUSTOM planning packages, tailored to the needs of each individual event. Just like no two events are the same, we don't believe "packages" are one-size-fit-all.
Why should we select Blue Poppy Events? Are you the right event planner for me?
Valueable resources like time, money, energy, and emotion are poured into any event by our clients and we do not take that lightly. We are dedicated to helping you maximize all of these resources to ensure that A) you have the event of your dreams and B) you feel like it was all worth it!
We are professionals and are focused on continually learning and growing within our industry so that we are able to remain at the forefront of event planning in order to best serve our clients.
In addition to all of that. with Blue Poppy Events, you get TWO planners/coordinators. We started this company so that we, as sisters, could work together. We only take events that we can both work on, therefore, you get DOUBLE the help.
Where can we learn more about you?
We invite you to follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest to see some of the amazing events we have had the privilege to work on, get a peek at our 'behind the scenes' work, and also see how much we love our 'job'!
Will you book events on holidays?
Because we are mothers and wives, we cherish the time we get with our family but we also know your events are very special.
We consider any events to be held on, directly prior, or directly after a major holiday on a case by case basis. These dates would include: New Years Eve/Day, Valentine's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
Any events to be held on these holiday periods will only be booked starting at our Full Planning Package rate.
