I am so happy that I found Country Sugar to help plan my wedding. Natalie was absolutely amazing. I originally didn't think I needed a wedding planner, but after trying to deal with the owner of the venue we had picked out, I knew I needed help. Trying to find a wedding planner less than 6 months before a wedding was difficult and I was feeling super overwhelmed, but then I came across Country Sugar and contacted Natalie who told me she didn't want me to have to stress anymore and set up an appointment for us to meet right away even though it was the weekend before Thanksgiving. It meant so much to me that she did that and I knew she was the perfect person for the job. I wasn't wrong! She helped me find the remaining vendors I needed and was a huge support in dealing with the uncooperative staff at the venue. She listened to everything I said I wanted and executed it perfectly. When the big day finally came, I was able to relax and not worry about a thing because I knew she would take care of any issue that came up. The wedding ended up being everything I wanted and so much more and I attribute that to her! She was so fun and easy to work with and is great at what she does! I can't thank her enough for everything she has done!!

Worth it!!

My husband and I had no idea just how helpful a day of coordinator would be. Spend a little extra money to help take the stress off of yourself and your spouse on your big day. Meeting Natalie at our initial meeting, we knew she was professional and she gave us so much useful information! Closer to our wedding day, we could only have a meeting via phone call to discuss our details and the flow of how the wedding day should go and she still kept this professionalism that's admirable. I loved working closely with Natalie during our process. The day of, we had Caroline as our coordinator and she's delightful as well! She kept us on our timeline and was extremely easygoing and took off so much stress on our wedding day. If you're thinking of hiring day of services, do it! I can tell you from experience that it was probably the best decision we made and worth the expense! I should also note the pricing is reasonable and not something that will break the bank. Leave some room in your budget for this. You'll look back and be extremely grateful!

Best decision we made!

We utilized Country Sugar’s full-service planning for our December ‘19 wedding. Simply put, Natalie and the Country Sugar team gave us a wedding day that far exceeded anything we could dream up.

From the get-go Natalie clearly understood our vision and was able to involve all the right people, and make all the right suggestions, to bring it to life. She was incredibly reliable, responsive, enthusiastic, and decisive when we needed her to be. We ended up trusting her opinions implicitly. At the same time, she made the planning process feel very collaborative and let us be as involved as we wished. There were plenty of tears seeing the reception space, with all the thoughtful details she included. It felt personalized and reflected us as a couple so well.

The day-of could not have been more perfect. Knowing she was running the show, we felt stress free and were able to soak up every moment. She made sure we were where we needed to be, when we were supposed to be there. We didn’t have to think about any logistics! Everyone from our wedding party to our guests kept commenting on how easy and streamlined the whole day felt. That was all down to Natalie.

We cannot thank Country Sugar enough for giving us our dream wedding, and making the best day of our lives possible. We highly, highly recommend their services (in any capacity) for your big day. We couldn’t wait to write this review!! !
