    Liliana is the best planner you can trust with your wedding!

    Liliana and her assistant Cristina made my wedding day run so smoothly! We had a destination wedding of 65+ guests in Old San Juan, and they knew all the right vendors to hire to make our day exactly what we wanted. Liliana is kind, patient, and organized. Both she and Cristina offered great advice for special touches that made our wedding special (that I would not have thought of). They kept us on track in the months leading up to the wedding with numerous zoom check-ins, detailed spreadsheets, and a busy group chat in the final 3 months. Our wedding day itself ran so smoothly that I could just spend time with our families and friends, enjoying the party. We could not have done it without her. Liliana even went the extra mile and found a special vendor to make my husband's specialty cocktail dreams come true! As a detail-oriented person, at first I was on the fence about needing a full planner, but hiring Liliana and the Handcrafted Weds team was probably my best wedding-related decision, and many of my vendors (plus my dad) told me the same thing!

    The Best Wedding Planners in PR!

    The team at handcrafted weddings did an awesome job. My family and friends are still talking about our wedding. They made the process easy and manageable. Their choice of vendors matched our budget and our wedding was just wonderful and beautifully put together. We reside in Texas, and we were able to communicate with the team and plan a perfect wedding. If you are a busy person, Lilliana and her team provide outlines and timelines to help you through the process.
