You've thoroughly combed through our website, and Instagram feed and you like what you see. So the next step is setting up a time to chat to make sure we're the perfect fit for one another.

Let's Chat!

so you want to throw a party?!

Once your date is officially reserved with a 50% retainer and a signed contract, we will create a client portal to host all of your event documents and send over a few emails to get started!

Date Booked

Make it official

We will start with 3 key things:
01. Budget analysis | 02. Venue selection | 03. Vendor selection

In this initial planning phase I want to make sure we tackle 75% of your key vendors before moving on to phase two.
Key vendors include venue, caterer, photographer, entertainment and cake baker.

Planning Begins

vendor booking

Once we’ve established the majority of your dream team, we move on to the design phase of planning, which is centered around the things that are aesthetically pleasing.

In the design phase, we’re booking things vendors for your florals, luxury rental companies, up-lighting, staging, draping, stationery, custom seating chart, etc.. 

This is also the time we start creating and finalizing your layout. If you would like to add on our Event Design I or II, as an "A la carte" then we will move forward with your digital renderings. This will acts as a playbook and guide for our team, florist and rental companies on your event day. 

Event Design

all the pretty details

This is where it all starts to come together! We check in about two-three weeks before the event to start crafting your timeline, obtaining all of your special traditions, and every little details that you would like to incorporate.

At this time, our main focus is for tie up any loose end by working closely with you and all your vendors to establish a timeline that works for everyone. We will confirm and send your final guest count to your rental company, caterer, and bartenders to make sure we can make any last minute adjustments.

This is the time that all of the pieces of the puzzle begin to create one beautiful spread! 


the last stretch

The day we have been planning for the last several months and weeks is finally here! Just know we're excited to celebrate this special day with you! It's going to be amazing! 

The week-of… when all the magic happens! I will be sending out final timelines, diagrams, handling emails and logistics for you. My goal is to have to ask you the least amount of questions and to be the go-between for vendors and your desires.

My team will coordinate up to 10 hours of your event day. I’m typically one of the first vendors to arrive, and usually one of the last (if not the last) to leave. We will supervise, coordinate setup, breakdown, and everything in between!

Your Special Day!

what's the difference between full-service (Package 1) to partial planning (package 2)?



When do you charge travel fees for events?


We typically have 1 Lead Planner on an event day. Depending on your guest size, we will adjust as needed. We recommend 1 coordinator per 50 guests.


How many assistants will be there on the day of the event?


Fantastic! To reserve your event date, we’ll need a completed and signed contract and a 50% non-refundable deposit. If you don’t have a contract yet, just let us know and we’ll send one over! 25% will be due halfway your event and the remaining balance will be due 2 week before the event.


We love your work and want to book. What is the next step?





We typically add travel fees on to any events outside of a 20 mile radius from our home in downtown, Houston. Fees vary depending on location so ask us for more details. For event(s) outside of Houston, lodging fee may apply.





which package will the event design renderings include?

Unfortunately, none of our Event Design Renderings are included in our Event Planning Package. However, you may choose to add one of our Event Design package at an additional fee. See "A la carte" cost listed above.

We are grateful that you are considering us to be a part of your special day! If you’re interested in working with us, the next step is to set up a time to chat! You can reach us directly at christine@houstonsoiree.com
