ALL-INCLUSIVE WEDDING FAQ'S
learn more about our all-inclusive packages
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ELOPEMENT PACKAGES, POP-UPS, AND MICRO WEDDINGS?
Elopements are planned with up to 8-20 guests depending on the package. We try to ensure these packages embody the true meaning of 'eloping' - giving you and your fiance the ultimate private wedding experience with just a couple key guests.
Pop-Up Weddings are intimate, short, sweet elopements and are generally 60-75 minute long celebrations - depending on the venue and date. They offer the opportunity to invite up to 20 guests and will include everything outlined in each package. The idea is to share one wedding date (and the subsequent costs of vendors and location) with other couples who will also be getting married on the same day. Each couple is scheduled into dedicated and private time-slots. When we advertise a pop date location, times are always on a first-come-first-serve basis. Each pop-up includes a ceremony and social 'hour' with a bubbly toast and cupcakes to share with guests.
Micro Weddings are 3-4 hours long depending on whether you select an afternoon social or evening cocktail celebration. These are a small-scale intimate wedding packages designed for up to 30 guests. Each includes a romantic and stylish ceremony with a social celebration following it. Packages include bubbly toast and cupcakes. Afternoon socials offer mixed bakery goods along with hot beverage options, and evening cocktail celebrations include canapes/appetizers and bar inclusions. There will be time to celebrate, have a couples photo session, and include some wedding traditions (if you want) like a first dance and/or speeches.
WHAT CAN WE CUSTOMIZE?
All-inclusive packages are meant to reduce the stress of planning details...so we handle everything outlined. You will have the opportunity to plan your vows and select your ceremony format, as well as make song choices for your ceremony music. Pop-up Weddings are pre-packaged to be cost-effective - couples will have the chance for minor customization's such as ceremony song selection and bouquet style. Elopements allow couples to be involved with date selection, venue locations, and other details on a per-booking basis. Micro Wedding packages will offer the opportunity to select menu options and be more involved with the party music, and decor style selection
HOW DOES THE TIME-FRAME WORK?
Private Elopements: will be scheduled with the client based on their desire to have a morning, afternoon, or evening elopement.
Pop-Up Weddings: All couples will be provided a time to arrive. It is important that you communicate to guests of the appropriate arrival times, especially for pop-up wedding dates. With traditional weddings, guests often arrive much earlier than anticipated to get their bearings - with pop-up weddings, you may will be sharing the day with other couples (scheduled around you), therefore it is important to respect the scheduled time-frames to allow smooth production of each wedding.
We start our pop-up wedding days at 10:00 or 11:00 am, and run multiple sessions throughout the day with some time between each session to regroup, refresh, and reset the decor and details. Each available time-slot is offered on a first come, first serve basis. Payment secures your preferred scheduled time.
Micro Weddings: Picnic packages are scheduled between 1pm-4pm. Cocktail party packages are scheduled 1pm-4pm or 7pm-11pm. Dinner party packages are from 3:00pm - 7:00 pm or 4:00pm-8:00pm.
HOW IS THE CEREMONY STRUCTURED?
Pop-Up Weddings + Elopements: Each ceremony is an intimate experience for our couples; an elopement style ceremony with just the couple and the officiant at the 'altar'. Guests will be seated comfortably to witness the event. To maintain the intimate ambiance, and reduce confusion, we ask all couples to refrain from including a 'wedding party', best man and/or maid of honor.
Micro Weddings: We request and recommend you consider a best man and maid of honor, but refrain from additional wedding party members. The reason for these guidelines is to keep the ceremonies intimate, and offer us a chance to manage the timeline of your wedding to then best of our ability. More wedding party attendants generally means more people to manage
Overall, You will have an opportunity to select your music/songs of choice for the ceremony, and you will be supplied with links to choose your vows and ceremony format - so there it will still be plenty of personal touches to make it 'yours' and unique.
WHAT DO WE DO AFTER THE WEDDING?
Once your wedding time-frame is over, we request all couples and their guests, please make plans off the venue property and plan to move on from there immediately following their wedding sessions. This is to respect the venue and vendors, as well as other couples and their guests to ensure confusion on-site is limited between weddings.
You can plan the rest of your day however you want. Some couples like to spend it quietly and romantically with just one another, while others plan a lunch or dinner at their favorite restaurant. It may also be an opportunity for you to plan a larger evening wedding reception elsewhere with more guests - using the pop-up or micro wedding as 'warm-up' with just a few selected guests.
CAN WE HIRE OUR OWN VENDORS?
All vendors are pre-selected for each package. You are welcome to hire other vendors, but will need to ensure it is arranged around your booked time with us, and in another location.
Because the arrival time for your wedding is a limited window (see 'How Does The Time Frame Work?'), if you are hiring a hair & make-up artist, you will need to book a session in their studio, or in a location outside of the venue.
If there is a vendor you want to include that we don't supply (such as a videographer), we can discuss the options to ensure your package and day is complete. We can either recommend someone or work with your preferred choice so they understand how our time-frames need to flow.
WHO ARE THE VENDORS?
Check out some of the participating vendors listed here, on the 'All-Inclusive Wedding Packages' page. These vendors are all affiliates and partners in the event industry – professionals we trust and work well with. Because we like to be prepared for scheduling hiccups, and have a large network of industry friends that we like to share the referral love in our community – some of the vendor cast might change from one scheduled wedding the next. We will be sure to detail the participating vendors with each package outline.
Please note: most all communications about the wedding dates will be made through Mosaic Party. In some cases we will put you in direct communication with a vendor to sort out customized options. However, if you reach out to other vendors directly directly, please do not be alarmed if they guide you back to us for any questions or inquiries about the date you have selected to marry on. Most of these vendors are being sub-contracted through us and do not know the details we have planned.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO BRING?
You will need to provide a marriage license. This needs to be purchased in advance, but don't worry, we will provide you a link when you fill out our details form upon booking.
Don’t forget your rings, your guests, and love in your heart. We will handle the rest! Just arrived dressed and ready to wed!
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH THE 'PERSONAL FLOWERS'?
Your wedding package is complete with personal flowers that you get to keep. This includes a choice of a bouquet + boutonniere, or two of the same for same-sex couples (ie: boutonniere + boutonniere, or bouquet + bouquet). For Micro and Intimate Wedding Packages, we also include am additional bouquet and/or boutonniere for best men and maid of honor (or any combination of the one attendant on each side).
