A covid wedding dream come true - hire polka dot!
Simply put, Allie is a rockstar (as is the rest of the Polka Dot team). It’s no surprise that planning, re-planning, and re-planning (again) a wedding in the middle of a pandemic is a challenge. Hiring Polkadot made navigating these challenges, and pulling it off, so much easier. If you’re questioning whether you need a planner, the answer is yes. And if you’re questioning what planner to hire, the answer is a resounding “Polka Dot”.Sent on 12/11/2020
Here’s what Allie and team helped us with:
* Being flexible with us as we scaled back on the size of our wedding (from 150 to 13 people)
* Managing family politics and quickly adjusting plans as people were added/dropped from the final list
* Taking everything off our hands as soon as we had our “onboarding” conversion — it literally felt like a weight was lifted off our shoulders once we started working with her
* Negotiating tough conversations with vendors, especially when we encountered the last minute switcheroo from some who changed plans 2 days before the wedding
* Making numerous recommendations and connecting us to various amazing vendors who brought our vision to life, most of the time at the last moment
* Helping to bring everything together on the day of, from setup and organization at the event, to coordination with our guests, and handling the end of the night so that we could just walk away into the evening as a newly married couple
Allie, you were our rock in this crazy, crazy rollercoaster and we are beyond grateful for you and everything you did. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts - we couldn’t have done it without you!

The best decision we could have made was working with Allie from Polka Dot Events!
We feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Allie Beik from Polka Dot Events. We just celebrated our wedding in early November and Allie and her team made the day absolutely perfect and stress free for us. Besides being extremely professional, thorough and detail-oriented; Allie is just a gem of a person and I loved having her by my side on our wedding day. The entire team we worked with had such a great energy and instilled confidence in us that everything we needed to have handled was 100% taken care of.Sent on 11/17/2019
The whole process leading up to our wedding was also a dream. We actually booked Polka Dot Events as one of our last vendors through a recommendation by our Photographer, Haley Richter. At the time, I didn’t realize the amount of value a coordinator could bring to both the planning experience as well as the day-of wedding execution. If you’re on the fence, let me just say booking Allie had immediate value to us; there is no question of the return on investment you get from having a professional on your team! The week after we booked Polka Dot Events many of my other vendors started reaching out to setup timeline calls and finalize details; she was quick to introduce herself, join us for vendor meetings and calls and even take over some on her own when I had conflicts. Also, if you’re still looking for a photographer I recommend booking Haley and Allie together - they are literally the dream team! I didn’t realize until the day of our wedding that the two vendors you spend the most time with will be your photographer and coordinator. Having individuals who are both extremely efficient and have worked together before kept us on schedule and added to our outstanding experience.
Thank you again Allie for everything! I’ll forever think of you as my fairy godmother on my wedding day - you made the whole experience so magical! We couldn’t have done it without you.

Polka Dot (hi, Brittany!) were a pleasure to work with. They were responsive and super helpful with all my questions. I was fairly active in planning all the details I wanted but was super thankful to have Brittany's guidance and extra hand when it came to the smaller tasks that I couldn't get around to (ie printing signs and bringing things over to the venue in advance). It was even a bigger relief the week of the wedding when I just wanted to relax and spend time with friends and family. The cherry on top was the day-of though. Knowing that Brittany was in the room, around the corner, or a text away to lend a helping hand made every penny worthwhile. Every bride should do herself a favor and work with Polka Dot!Sent on 10/15/2019
I have worked directly with Tracey, Allie, and Kristi on several events. There is no one that I trust more when it comes to running a smooth operation. I always tell our clients that before anything else (including catering), the wedding planner is the most essential piece to the wedding puzzle, they are that important. If an interested couple says they have signed with Polka Dot we know we are in good hands. Mac Osborne Partner Compartí New York
Polka Dot plans and executes the most exquisite events in fine detail. They are Pros and we highly recommend them!
Working with Tracey and the Polka Dot team through the year has been a pleasure. As a creative vendor, Tracey was always been able to effectively communicate her client's vision while allowing our design team the creative freedom needed to create the best wedding lighting design. Troubleshooting and dealing with the usual and unusual bumps in the road are done with respect and grace, and Tracey always comes through for her clients. We highly recommend Polka Dot Events as you consider your wedding planning.
