Highly Recommend

I give Allure Planning an A rating. Shonda was professional, engaging, and personable from the very first consultation. She listened and notated our ideas and chimed in when we wanted guidance. Shonda worked extremely well with all of our vendors. Almost all of our vendors came from her recommendations and they were a great fit for our wedding. I was very proud of the way she decorated as well. Area for improvement: I recommend expanding the team and using more assistants to ensure that all tasks are completed as planned. Outside of a couple easy fix hiccups, everything was beautiful. I highly recommend Allure Planning Services and would use their services again.

A Life Saver

Shonda was detailed, quick to follow up, professional and personable. She assured me every step of the way from 60 days out up until almost one month after my wedding date to ensure all my affairs were in order. Her team was helpful, very kind to my guests, and kept a natural flow to my wedding day. It was blissful. Hire her! If you think you don鈥檛 need a DOC, YOU DO. Especially her.

Wedding Support you Need

Shonda was amazing and really came through as a coordinator and officiant at my wedding.
She handled everything day of, gave perspective and even partied with us on the boat.
