The Planning Process

If planning was an art form, then Soirée Blue has it mastered. In addition to our creative nature, we are known for our ability to get things done efficiently and effectively without overlooking any details.

When a client has a need for a full-service wedding planner, they can schedule an initial consultation with us. This consultation ideally happens at Soirée Blue’s office in Lexington; however a phone call or Skype session is possible for out-of-town brides.  This consultation gives the bride an opportunity to share her vision, and for us to better explain our planning process.

Weddings are just the beginning of more wonderful and beautiful moments to come in your life. We understand exactly how important this time is for all couples, and we work with you to create the vision you describe and add inspiration where you see fit. We help maintain a worry-free experience leading up to your wedding day by handling as little or as much as makes you comfortable. Our number one job is to advocate for you and with you to create an amazing event. Our expertise and experience is what makes this all possible.

Each of our proposals is custom-built after an initial consultation. While we don’t have a menu of packages to select from, we listen and create one that is in line with what you need for your big day. We offer month-of, partial and full service planning.

All initial consultations are free of charge and available by appointment.


The lead planner is who will be the point person throughout the planning process.

With Melissa’s leadership and guidance, the Soirée Blue team approach allows for immediate response and attention to detail.  We place no limitations on communications with our brides and pride ourselves on our attentiveness – whether it’s through in-person meetings, conference calls, or emails. Having constant communication with our brides allows us to efficiently manage and coordinate the vendors, task lists and timelines


The overall design of the wedding is one of Soirée Blue’s unique specialties. We take the vision and dream of each client and create a custom design plan for both the ceremony and the reception. 

We understand and appreciate that every bride has her unique style, and we pride ourselves in working with her to see it come to fruition.




Soirée Blue is known for its seamless, stress-free wedding days.

The lead planner, along with other Soirée Blue team members, are there to execute your wedding day timeline for both the ceremony and reception.  The couple and their families are able to enjoy every moment of this special day in a joyous environment.
