Learn a little more about Riley Lou Events
What areas do you service and will you travel?
We are based in Salado! We are happy to travel throughout the Central Texas area. We love having the opportunity to work at different venues and meet new vendors. We do not charge a travel fee if the wedding location is within a one hour drive. For venues more than an hour away there is a milage fee. Venues more than two hours away require lodging.
Do you work with LGBTQ+ couples?
Of course! Riley Lou Events values inclusion and believes that love is love. We not discriminate based on sexual orientation, gender expression or identity, size, race, or religious beliefs. We are happy to celebrate each and every couple's unique love story.
What is the difference between a coordinator and a planner?
A wedding planner is going to help you plan the wedding details and make decisions through the planning process. A planner will help with budget, design, guest experience and so much more! A wedding coordinator is focused on the logistics of the actual wedding day. Wedding coordinators will join you in the planning process during the final stretch before the wedding day and help with the creation and the management of the timeline for the wedding day. Our packages build on one another so if you book us for a planning package you will also get all of the coordination services as well.
If I have a venue coordinator do I also need a wedding coordinator?
Absolutely! A venue coordinator is an expert on all things related to your venue. Their job is more focused on the management of the venue. They will manage things related to the venue and things provided by the venue. A wedding coordinator is focused on you and your wedding day. They will coordinate with all of the vendors and be there for you before, during, and after the event. An ideal situation is a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator working as a team to make your wedding day stress free and enjoyable!
Do you only plan/coordinate weddings?
We love celebrations of all sorts! We are happy to plan and coordinate any type of event. Please reach out about any celebration you need help with!
Are you available for calls, texts, and emails through out the planning process?
We are always happy to answer questions, offer advice, and support you when you need to discuss ideas or vent! All of the packages come with unlimited texts, emails, and calls. Email is the preferred method of communication in order to keep everything organized, but calls and texts are fine as well.
Why do the package prices say "starting at"?
Our packages having starting prices because each event is unique and has different needs. Larger guest counts or weddings without full service catering can require additional assistants. Package prices can also be affected milage fees. During our initial consultation we will discuss your wedding details and let you know the milage fee and make recommendations about hiring additional assistants if necessary.
