Your questions, answered...
Q. What is the difference between a shared wedding and a custom wedding?
A shared wedding (a pop up wedding) is based on economy sharing - we book a venue and open up 3-5 time slots for couples to book their wedding. All costs associated with these beautiful ceremonies are shared amongst the couples. The experience is still private and intimate and there is only ONE all-inclusive fee to pay.
A custom wedding is an all-inclusive wedding planning service that we provide. We work with you to book your dream venue, curate the perfect ceremony and plan a bangin' reception. You begin by choosing a package, which you can then add to, to design your dream wedding. We ensure this service is still exceptionally affordable by partnering with our preferred vendors and advocating for you in all correspondence.
Q. How much does it cost?
A. The total cost for a shared wedding is $3,200.00 CAD + tax.
The total cost for a custom wedding depends on your venue, the package and the add-ons that you choose.
We understand that everyone has unique budgets and limitations. We accept instalments, contact us to discuss more.
Q. Do I need to pay a deposit?
A. A 50% deposit is required to finalize all bookings.
Q. How many people can I bring?
A. We've capped our shared weddings at 20 guests - 10 are included in your $3200 fee and we charge $20/ extra person. A custom wedding's guest count is based upon your chosen venue.
Q. How many other couples will be registered on my shared wedding day?
A. We typically only book 3-5 couples per day at a shared wedding venue. We have carefully coordinated the day to minimize interruptions and distractions to create an intimate and romantic experience.
Q. How do I register for a shared wedding time slot?
A. To register for our upcoming shared Pop Up Wedding, click here! Ceremony slots book quickly and are first come first served. If you are wanting that sunset ceremony, be sure to book quickly!
Q. How long is the ceremony?
A. From start to finish the ceremony and formal photos will take 1 hour. We recommend you arrive dressed and ready half an hour before your scheduled time. You and your guests are welcome to stay and enjoy the gardens afterwards, as long as everyone is respectful of the other ceremonies taking place.
Q: What about a reception or dinner?
A. Our shared weddings are exclusively ceremonies; however, we can make all necessary reception arrangements for you at an additional cost.
We love supporting other local businesses and can recommend some fantastic wedding venues for your celebration!
Q. Can I change anything or add anything to the ceremonies?
A. We have carefully curated the ceremonies to suit the trends and needs of many couples, but we understand that everyone is unique. If there is a small element that you would like to add to your wedding ceremony, we would be happy to discuss that. Remember, we want this day to be as stress-free as possible for you!
Q. What do I need to bring?
A. You will need to bring your marriage license, which you can find here. You will also need to come dressed (we recommend getting ready before arriving, as space is sometimes limited) and your rings. You are also welcome to bring recording devices.
Q. What can I NOT bring?
A. We kindly ask that you DO NOT bring confetti of any sort, fake flowers, decor items, alcohol, food, glass, and more than 10 guests, unless confirmed beforehand.
