    Dedicated! She literally climbed inside my dress to bustle it!

    worked with Kim to plan my wedding. I cannot say enough about what a help she was.

    In the early stages of planning, Kim helped me narrow my approved vendor list to select those which were right for our event, surely saving us time and money.

    Closer to our wedding date, Kim and I had a sit down to discuss all of the details I would have never thought of until I regretted not addressing it. From a dress reveal to the logistics of pinning the boutonnieres on the groomsmen, Kim had a solution for everything.

    Thank you for letting me borrow your handkerchief, I needed it more than I knew!

    My favorite advice she gave was what to do about a bouquet toss. We did not invite children to our wedding and most of my friends are already married. Kim suggested just passing the bouquet to my newly engaged maid of honor. This was such a special moment affirming our lifelong friendship.

    Quite comically, our reverend for hire lingered well past his welcome, drinking and eating to his heart's content during cocktail hour. Kim put her foot down to communicate he was not invited to the reception. (This had been previously discussed with him, he was just being very stubborn)

    I'd certainly recommend Liven It Up Events to any friends or strangers!

    Liven It Up Events's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We really appreciate you choosing to work with our team and that you had such a great experience with Kim. Weddings are a once in a lifetime experience and from everyone here at Liven It Up, we are all so glad yours was wonderful!

    Thank you again and congrats!

    Incredible Day-of Planner

    Tiffany from LIU was our day-of wedding planner. She was incredible and I cannot speak highly enough of her! She was professional, knowledgeable, kind, and easy to work with. Even though she was the day-of planner, she went above and beyond and gave us wonderful recommendations on vendors. Once she took over the coordination, we did not worry about a thing. Every time I spoke to her I felt so much better and less stressed, and our wedding day would not have been such a success without her. Thank you Tiffany!

    Liven It Up Events's reply:

    Emily, thank you so much for your kind words, we truly appreciate it! I know that a wedding can be stressful and bringing someone on to help manage it takes trust. I am grateful you trusted Tiffany and I our team to come on and help make your wedding day come to life. Congratulations and here's to a long and happy marriage!

    Best Decision I Made!

    I was on the fence about having a wedding planner but it was hands down the best decision I made. Looking back I would have paid double the amount for it again, it was that helpful! Lindsay is an absolute rock star and helped make the months leading up to my wedding so stress free. She was incredibly organized, efficient and went above and beyond on the day of my wedding. When my photographer left my bouquet at the church she personally drove back to retrieve it. I highly recommend Lindsay, I am so grateful I got to work with her!

    Liven It Up Events's reply:

    Hi Grace! I am so glad to hear that you had such a great experience with Lindsay. Thank you so much for choosing to trust our team and Lindsay on your wedding day. It means so much to have that trust, for us to be there with you along the way, and that your dream day come to life!
