Minnesota WEDDING PLANNING

The dreams you’ve had for your big day are only the beginning.

Maybe you’ve pictured your wedding in the same space since you were a little girl. Maybe you’ve fallen in love with the landscape you grew up with. Maybe you just can’t imagine getting married anywhere but the place you call home. Local weddings have a special place in our heart because of the meaning and history behind every single decision.

 So, whether your style is whimsical, understated, or somewhere in between…

Local Weddings: Close to home. Designed from the heart.

Our mission is to curate and execute a wedding, perfectly tailored to you. 

We’ll breathe life into your celebration with captivating detail, beyond your wildest dreams.

You are overjoyed to be engaged. But, it may seem like you have just as many worry loops running through your head as those engagement ring pictures on your phone.
You start to think:
    |    Where do I start when it comes to planning?
    |    Will I be able to pull it all off?
    |    Where will we get married?
    |    What vendors should I work with?
    |    Should we go big, or keep it small?
… and that’s just the beginning. 

You don’t just want your wedding to be beautiful, you want it to be perfect. And, contrary to popular belief, we here at Poppati believe in perfect. We believe your wedding can be so distinctly you. You couldn’t imagine anything more perfect.

“Of course I want my dream wedding, but where on earth do I start?”

What if you could hand off planning, organizing, and execution with 
complete confidence?

Introducing

At Poppati, we like to take “white glove service” and add a little sparkle and pop. This is full-service, but it’s unlike any full-service you’ve ever experienced.

We work with you to craft a creative vision that’s entirely true to your story and how you like to celebrate. We take inspiration from your life, your love, and your unique personality and breathe life into an experience that is uniquely yours.

01. Creative

We execute our co-created vision with intention by curating the perfect vendors to bring your vision to life in lavish detail. Plus, we do all the communicating for you. We take care of vendor meetings, budget negotiations, creative direction, and so much more. Less to keep track of means you will have more time to soak up your season of celebration. 

02. Curated

We oversee the entire event from planning to partying to pickup. That means every intricate detail will come together in a cohesive design and seamless experience. You won’t have to feel like everything is everywhere. Instead, you’ll think, “This day is so smooth and so completely us.”

03. Cohesive

Our Poppati Promise:

Is it hard to believe that your local wedding can be something no one’s ever seen before? At Poppati, that’s just what we do.

By taking a white glove (and then some) approach, we have our hands in every single piece of the process. Plus, starting with the vision and your story first means the vision will take the driver’s seat. We don’t plan weddings chained to the vision of one single vendor. We work to find the best, most innovative vendors to bring your vision to life. 

We also don’t shy away from working with multiple vendors to make magic happen. But, with Poppati negotiating budget, handling communication, and advocating for your dream day along the way, you’ll get to sit back and watch the magic come to life—without having to manage the pile of tasks to make it happen.

The result? A cohesive day, curated to meet your dream vision—you won’t miss a single, magical moment.

Local should never mean “look-a-like.”

Full Service Honeymoon Planning

Tailored Takes Time

So, Cheers! It’s time to get hitched!

Poppati gives unparalleled time and attention to each and every client to ensure that their true dream day is coming to life. To ensure the most exquisite experience for you, we take on a limited number of premium clients each year.

Instead of managing all the tasks, details, and responsibilities on your own, we would love to make your engagement season a beautiful one by taking all of that off your hands. Without Poppati, you may end up working until the very last minute. You may have to just hope it will all come together. You might shatter your budget in the process, and spend far too much time chasing down vendors instead of soaking up this once in a lifetime moment.

Our Poppati Process will grant you the privilege of reassurance and confidence, knowing that everything will go off without a hitch.
