Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a Blue Satin Bee Client?

A Blue Satin Bee client cares more about the marriage than the party. They love to have fun, especially when surrounded by family and friends. Regardless of the weather or any inevitable wedding day hiccups, the most important part is saying, "I Do". 

What are your office hours?

We typically work normal business hours, but weekend or evening appointments can be made, if necessary. 

Why do you schedule an initial consultation call or in-person appointment before contracting?

We're about to become VERY close friends over the next several months, so we try to make sure that we're a good fit for one another before any money exchanges hands. It's a great way for us to get to interview each other. 

How do I decide between Wedding Management and Full Service?

We think this article does a great job of answering this question. 

How many weddings do you book each year?

In an effort to provide the highest quality service to our clients, we only book 10-20 weddings per planner, per year. 

Do you set up and break down decor?

No, we are there to oversee those responsible for each aspect of the event. While we are happy to occasionally lend a hand, we need to remain available for vendor questions and event management to ensure setup and tear down run smoothly. We recommend our clients hire professional and full-service vendors who provide installation and tear down on the wedding day. 

What's the difference in an in-house venue manager and an independent wedding planner?

A fellow wedding planner wrote a great blog post on this exact topic! As a former in-house venue coordinator herself, she's got a great perspective on the differences and why you'll want to hire an independent planner. Check it out here.
