Baby shower went so well. First time I hired the help of an event planner. All my guest even the staff of the venue was amazed by the decorations just the way I wanted it to be. April was always on time for our meetings and responded to my calls as quickly as possible. April was very organized and very detailed on the project. I would recommend April to my friends. I will certainly contact her for my next event.
Angie of Honey Do Wedding and Event Planners was one of the best decisions we made throughout our wedding planning process. She was affordable (especially for a student and military wedding) but always made us feel like her number one clients. Not only was she a great value, but she went over and above what we were expecting. We hired her to be our day of coordinator, but we met with her on a regular basis and she always responded to all calls, texts, and emails. Angie is incredibly personable, knowledgeable, and has connections with various other wedding vendors. As a same sex couple, she never treated us any differently than an opposite-sex couple, and she actually was great at recognizing the subtle differences that come with having two brides. At our first meeting at a potential venue, Angie came prepared with examples of her work and binder with all of our info. She even printed out new forms that said bride and bride instead of bride and groom. These small but significant touches are what make Angie stand out among other wedding planners. She helped us negotiate with vendors to get better prices and confirmed all vendors the week of, lifting a lot of the stress off of our shoulders. We can't speak highly enough of Angie and the Honey Do family!
Words can not even begin to describe how AWESOME Denean's Party by Design is!!! I originally was one of those brides who thought I could do it all myself until I realized I COULDNT! In my search for a decorator and Day of Coordinator I came across Denean's Party By Design. From that first phone call, that first email I was already sold! The professionalism and courtesy that she showed let me know I was on the right path. After our first meeting I quickly ran home and told my fiancé this is the one! Pam, I could tell you thank you a million times and that still wouldn't be enough! Between the décor, the rehearsal, the actual wedding day and all the calls and emails in between you never skipped a beat and always put my mind at ease! I could not have asked for a better group! I have already sung your praises to several friends and co workers to use your services! Some people are in wedding planning for the money but this group I can truly say does it from the heart! I am forever grateful, my wedding was AMAZING thanks to you!! Its been almost a month and everyone still raves about how beautiful and organized it was. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! With Love, The Wilks
Hiring Mary to coordinate my daughters wedding was one of the best decisions I made. Everything went so smooth and I could not have been happier with my decision.
Mary and her crew did a fantastic job catering our wedding luncheon in northern Virginia. The food and service were terrific.
BMore Fabulous was such a great find for our wedding, we will be looking to work with them again soon for our family reunion! I needed a wedding planner due to my busy schedule. I wanted someone to be able to accomplish anything I needed from vendor searches to scheduling. I quickly found out that I needed an all-inclusive package, however, all the polished major companies I found were charging a ridiculous amount of money and not providing everything I wanted to be accomplished. To save money and also try to support local businesses or start-ups, students, amateurs etc, I started to look for wedding planners on craigslist, thumbtack, local ads etc. I found BMore Fabulous and was quickly convinced that this was who I wanted to work with. The price was right, the details were many, and the contract was flexible. I did not realize until later, but we really did win big by working with this company. BMore Fabulous was more than all inclusive. Erin, the boss, accomplished all the expected all-inclusive activities such as finding vendors, scheduling meetings, and planning the day of events, but she did WAYY more than that. She was also our decorator for the venue, with her own linen and decor, she provided uplighting for beatuiful effects with her own equipment, and she was our florist for all the bouquets and decor. She also provided the staff and coordination for our bar. If you truly want all inclusive in one place, Erin, from BMore Fabulous is the WOMAN. Also, regardless of what she could provide, Erin, was very flexible. This, I find, might have been the most important benefit we got from working with them. I imagine other polished and bougie companies would be very strict and inflexible when it came to the contract, payment options, changes to your ideas and plans. With Erin, we were able to change our contract twice. Our payment options were flexible, and there were no hiccups with policies. If we had a vision, there was no headache with changing things. My husband and I are very particular and he had his doubts if all of our details would turn out right at the wedding. He actually had his doubts about BMore Fabulous, because all of our meetings were not conducted at an office, and details were written on lined paper, or an old laptop etc. In all reality, that was judgmental. Our wedding turned out absolutely beautiful! Despite that there were so many mistakes from our officiant and DJ, the crowd did not notice, and the only reason it ran as smooth as it did was because of BMore Fabulous! My husband in fact, later said how he was impressed by Erin and her work and how she did an exceptional job. Definitely work with BMore Fabulous!
I will definitely be using Soleia’s Wedding and Event Planning again!! They went above and beyond! Thanks again for making my Daughter’s Graduation Party a great success!!
When my now wife and I set out to plan our wedding, we were one of those couples who thought hiring a planner was unnecessary. We had roughly 6 months to pull it off. We fancy ourselves as reasonably intelligent and financially responsible people and we thought that was plenty of time. Fast forward 4 months. The stress began to mount and panic had set in. Our budget is dwindling. We broke down and decided to hire a day-of coordinator. Better late than never, but who do we call? Every one we spoke to was either way too expensive or not the right fit personality wise. Thanks to Thumbtack, we found Vanessa. We are incredibly happy we did and we couldn't have pulled off our awesome wedding without her. Here's just a few of the reasons why: 1) Attitude - She has the PERFECT demeanor for event planning. She kept us on track, but was never pushy. Very personable and easy to talk to. Every time we spoke to her we felt both at ease and motivated to check more off of our list. 2) Creativity - Simply put she has great ideas. Whether it was decor, logistics, floor planning, etc., she listened to our inputs (which weren't always in lockstep - welcome to married life) but put here own spin on things. Our wedding was weeks ago and we still are getting comments on how beautiful everything was. 3) Contacts - Vanessa made great recommendations for vendors, and didn't do so based on any kickbacks or financial gain to herself. In fact, we had one vendor who was somewhat flaky that we had already booked. She was able to line up a "just in case" vendor for us. 4) Organization - Nothing fell through the cracks and she thought of small details we didn't have the capacity to (because we were too busy being crazy pants). 5) Value - She is worth every penny and I would argue she is a bargain for the service she provides. This is especially in comparison to other planners out there. If you need help planning an event, not just a wedding, we highly suggest you reach out to Vanessa @ Little Black Book. You absolutely will not regret it.
READ THIS IF YOU WANT EVERY WONDERFUL DETAIL!!!!!!!! I first got engaged in April of 2017 and am a physician in Virginia. My fiance and I were looking for a wedding planner who would be able to put together a wedding reception that looked like an outdoors starry night...but INSIDE a ballroom. I had heard of Mitch via a family friend and through some research....when he came to visit my mother and I for the first time, we were incredibly relieved. Before we had even officially hired him, he already went to work! On the FIRST day he met us, he already brought in ideas, venues, prices, and significantly reduced rates on everything he presented because of his extensive relationship with his vendors (he has been doing this for a very long time and I swear he knows everyone)! The take home point about Mitch is simple.....he will give you UNBELIEVABLE results at a price that you could not imaging possible. His artistic abilities are unmatched...he designed a candle lit forest for me INSIDE a boring ballroom and even changed the ceiling of the ballroom into a beautifully lit piece of art (circus ceiling style with crystal chandeliers levitating to the flowers on each table with floating orbs of candle lights). I come from a large Egyptian family and Mitch is very experienced in hiring specific vendors for YOUR specific wedding needs. Again, he is EXPERIENCED and is not new to the process. There are thousands of times where Mitch would handle situations and prevent stress from even coming to my mother and I. I CAN ACTUALLY SAY THAT I HAD A COMPLETELY STRESS FREE WEDDING AND REHEARSAL DINNER!!!!!!!!! And as for the wedding....everything went as planned EXACTLY...not one thing went wrong even though the old saying goes that you should prepare yourself for something....well....we actually had a perfect wedding. Mitch even surprised me with a firework entrance for my husband and I....this is how Mitch is...he is among the most kind and LOYAL people I know. If you want a wedding planner who will literally take away your stress and create a wedding above what you could ever imagine, Mitch is the one!!!! <3
My friends wedding was a great turn out! (Fun and classy) Everything looked FLAWLESS, and she made it look EFFORTLESS.
From the first consultation with Keisha I knew she was a perfect fit for us! Affinity One Events were hired for my day of wedding day coordination, but it was a lot of communication and meetings before the actual day. Keisha was flexible and very reliable. Several of my guests noticed how helpful and professional affinity one event staff members were during the wedding. I could not be more thankful for the service that was provided!
Stacia was a complete JOY, to work with! She made our special day from start to finish The Best Day Ever! She was accountable, self motivating, very creative, she stayed waaayyyy ahead of schedule, and she really got in tuned with our style, as well as who we are as a couple, to create a PERFECT setting for our Wedding Day. She litterally took all of the stress of the planning process completely away! Her level of expertise about the whole wedding planning process, really put us at ease since I had never done this before. She is a business woman, and an artist! I could go on, and on an on, but the bottom line is I would advise EVERYONE to do yourselves a big favor by letting her make YOUR Wedding "The Best Day Ever!"
DIY handled my Wedding! From the beginning they came with unique ideas matching my color scheme, my style ideas and my budget. They were patient in allowing me the time to review their suggestions that fit with my needs. Oh, and their the small details... Everything was fabulous!!!
My husband and I are SUPER EXCITED with the outcome and very careful planning of our 10 year "Vow Renewal"!! Planned by Shauna Robinson of 'Brides-to- be Wedding's. Mrs. Robinson came to our home and explained 'exactly' what "Brides to-be'- does', she was also concerned with what our expectation's were for our wedding. We were so impressed with her kindness, her elegance, her organization skills and her ability to take the stress of planning off of my plate! She saved me so much stress!!! Our wedding was Simply Amazing thanks to Shauna! She stayed in contact with all of my vendors, the venue coordinator and anyone else involved in my wedding! I couldn't believe just how organized she was...she took my stress away and assured me that she was going to make sure my wedding was everything we thought it would be, and she delivered!!! I would highly recommend Brides- to- be to everyone" that wants a Awesome, patient Wedding Coordinator! I truly appreciate her work! Awesome, just AWESOME!!!!!!! L. Harvey
Knew exactly what I wanted and made it happen. She did my balloon canopy for my wedding. Everyone loved it!
I am beyond thankful that I chose Top Shelf for my wedding. The staff was fun, professional and responsive throughout the entire process. It was clear that they knew the best of the best when it came to catering, decor and venue options. Even when things didn't go according to plan, they were able to present me with quick and smart solutions. They kept the stress off of me and made my wedding a dream come true. I will be recommending them to my friends and family.
This is my first experience with a wedding planner so I want to be fair. ,First, I think she had to deal with s tough bride did well. Our budget was pretty low and she did pretty good at staying in it. We loved the venue she found us. On the wedding day she brought helpers with her and they all did an amazing job! The wedding went perfect. The service couldn't have been better. The whole night was a blast! So, I will say, yes I would recommend Phoriah Events! She did our wedding while being ready to have her baby at any time. Very Happy. We have wonderful memories forever.
Working with Linda was an awesome experience! I was so nervous regarding my event but Linda put my mind at rest with her expertise and quick responsiveness. She kept me informed every step of the way until the very end, I couldn't ask for a better event planner! Thank you Linda

I am so happy I chose to go with Jayme. I made the decision late in the game to hire a day of coordinator. I was relieved to find Jayme about a month before our wedding reception and she was great on the day of. I don't know what we would have done without her! Thank you Jayme!
Amanda and Remembered Events planned my April 22 wedding. She was just perfect for what we needed. I didn't want to stress or do anything the week of my wedding. Everything was on point, organized, and exactly how we had discussed it. I loved the online updates of progress and questions she had. Amanda was so easy to reach by phone or text. We had some issues day of and I didn't even know until after. I couldn't have been happier. -Claire
