COVERING THE BASICS

why hire soho events? what sets you apart from other planners?

Planning a wedding is a big deal and there are no do-overs when it comes to getting it right. We take great pride in being the best, not only for our clients, but for our fellow vendors as it is our goal to go above and beyond to exceed your expectations!

With more than 10 years of experience, you can rest assured that hiring SoHo Events as your event planner and designer comes with a level of professionalism, expertise, and vast knowledge that we will put to use when planning your big day. We are known for curated timeless designs that are inspired by our couples. This results in a one-of-a-kind, romantic celebration that cannot be replicated.

do you offer day-of coordination?

Let's be honest - we all know there's no such thing as 'day-of coordination' which is why we've curated our Event Management Package. We will come in 3 to 4 months before your event to help you tie up any loose ends. This package also includes all wedding weekend coordination, so not only will we help with the final planning details, but we'll be there every step of the way to ensure your wedding runs smoothly!

do you work with lgbtq couples?

Absolutely! We love LOVE and want to help everyone celebrate that love in a beautiful and timeless way.

do you work from a preferred vendor list?

We do not have a set preferred vendor list, but we have spent years building relationships with vendors in the industry so we can help match you with the best people for your wedding based on your budget, aesthetic and personality.

are you insured?

Yes, we are insured!

how should we contact you to learn more?

Feel free to head to our contact page and fill out our event details form. If you'd prefer to email us directly, you can send a message to hello@sohoeventdesign.com. If you'd like to connect over the phone, please call 919.414.0719. Also, be sure to check us out on Instagram.

do you travel?

Yes, we love to travel! While we are based in Charlotte, NC we are available for events across the Southeast and beyond. As a SoHo Events client, you will have access to our planning portal wherever you are, so we can plan from afar!

is there a minimum event budget?

Yes, we work best with clients that have a minimum budget of $40,000 for their wedding. For smaller, more intimate celebrations please reach out to us directly.

On average, a SoHo Events client will spend between $200 - $500+ per guest.

my venue has an event manager, do i still need a wedding planner?

The venue manager is responsible for just that - the venue. They are there to ensure food & beverage is brought out on time and is correct, unlock the doors, adjust the temperature, manage the wait staff and bartenders - basically anything that has to do with venue logistics.

As a wedding planner, we do EVERYTHING else! We work diligently with the venue manager and all of your other vendors to setup your decor, ensure everyone sticks to the timeline, guide the vendor team, assist the couple with any personal needs, pack up any personal belongings and troubleshoot any issues that may arise behind the scenes to ensure your day runs smoothly.

can we hire you for other wedding related parties like rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and engagement parties?

Of course you can and we recommend you do so! While we love planning weddings, we also love creating an atmosphere and what better way to do so than building out your wedding weekend and more with curated events to celebrate you as a couple. We can ensure that there is a cohesive feel between all wedding related events where your guests will get a true taste of southern hospitality! Plus, it means we get to spend more time with you and your families!

do you plan events other than weddings?

We sure do! While weddings are our main focus, we also have social and corporate clients. We can help plan everything including birthday parties, non-profit galas, anniversaries, baby showers and more. Contact us today for more information!
