Jill Guiomar is a total rock star. Thanks to her, I seriously had nothing to worry about on the day of my wedding.
We decided to hire Jill after a fiasco at a wedding that my now-husband and I had attended. It was really disorganized and the family of the bride had to scramble just to get some details completed. We decided that we did not want to put any burden on our own families, so we searched for a day-of-wedding coordinator.
We found Jill online and she came highly recommended. It helped that she had a business background. I do too, so I knew that she truly was someone who is assertive, detail-oriented, and efficient.
Jill's prices for day-of coordination are highly competitive based on other coordinators in the Bay Area. I would definitely recommend hiring a coordinator if you want a stress-free day and I would say that Jill is the best! She created a highly-detailed timeline and rehearsal schedule and then contacted our wedding vendors without even being reminded to do so. She also set up everything for the ceremony and reception. Now I had a TON of little details that needed to be set up. I even told her that I would send her pictures of how I wanted things to be organized, but in the midst of last-minute wedding stuff, I didn't send them to her as I promised. It didn't matter, because Jill had everything set up even better than how I wanted it. The timing of the wedding was perfect and even though Jill had everything scheduled perfectly, she still knew when to switch some things in order to make things flow smoothly. All of my friends and family were impressed with Jill and thanks to her not only were we stress-free, but my family was able to enjoy the day as well. Jill Guiomar is the perfect wedding coordinator! :)
Hiring Jill as our wedding coordinator was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning. I don't think I could ever thank her enough for making our celebration run so smoothly. It truly was a perfect day for me because Jill was there. Not only is she extremely organized, responsive, and diligent, but she is an absolute joy to work with and was such a calming presence during our wedding.
I was originally hesitant about hiring a coordinator. We got married at a country club that provided its own wedding coordinator. About three months away from our wedding, I started getting very nervous about all of the many details and parts coming together. It also was pretty clear that I needed more help than the club's coordinator. I hired Jill for a six week organizing package. She was so incredibly helpful in putting together all of the details of the event. She created an incredibly detailed timeline and made some great suggestions regarding the sequence of events. She also had fantastic ideas about more customized and unique wedding programs.
She came to our house a few days before the wedding to pick up all the stuff that you don't want to be thinking about the day of your wedding (escort cards, party favors, bridesmaid gifts, guest books, etc.). Everything was set up perfectly for the wedding, and she packed up the cars during the event so that there was nothing to do after the event ended. She also handled any potential issues with such ease. For example, one of the shuttles sent our guests to the wrong place. Jill fixed the problem, got the stranded guests to the venue, and our wedding started right on time. Even better, I had no idea that anything was wrong.
Her services are incredibly reasonable. I know that it may seem like hiring a coordinator is something that you can do without, but trust me, her services far exceed the cost.
We used Jill as our day of coordinator and I must say that was the best decision I had ever made. She took care of everything behind the scenes so I wouldn't have to. She was prompt in her replies and I loved her take charge attitude. she was awesome and I am glad that I made the decision to use her services!
Jill is freaking FANTASTIC! She is an absolute professional and gives her 110% to our wedding. She is a great value compared to all the event organizers/ coordinators out there. She was there from giving advice about invitations, talking with all our vendors beforehand, arranging the timeline and ensured all our details on the day of were done. She is extremely organized, friendly and easy to work with. My guests were gushing on how smooth and organized our wedding went. We couldn't have asked for more perfect day thanks to the hard work of 1 woman - Jill Guiomar - SUPER WOMAN. I was a worry-free bride. Tell your future husband she's worth it!
Jill was great to work with! I planned a mostly DIY wedding and a couple months beforehand realized I just couldn't do it without outside help. I hired Jill as a Day of Coordinator. It wouldn't be an understatement to say she saved the day! I was so wrapped up in my DIY projects that some of the most important things regarding wedding planning--the order, timing, and flow of the ceremony and reception--got a little lost. Jill really helped me out here. She created a great timeline to ensure that us and our wedding guests would have a fun, memorable evening. She also contacted all the vendors beforehand to make sure everyone was on the same page. On the wedding day she was there to coordinate everyone, keep us on track, help set up, interact with the banquet staff, and more! It was so wonderful having her there, I wasn't stressed at all on my wedding day because I knew I was in good hands. I think my wedding was especially tricky because we didn't have a DJ, just a laptop and a friend emceeing for us. But she made sure our friend knew when to announce something and that the right songs were being played for the formal dances. (By the way in retrospect, I probably should have hired a DJ). She wasn't phased at all when problems arose and was able to solve them quickly and efficiently. She was very responsive to my questions and emails, and fairly priced. I would definitely recommend hiring Eventful Days!
