All around awesome!
From the moment we sat down with Vanessa, we knew she was exactly who we needed for day-of coordination services. She was organized, well-prepared, and mindful of our budget throughout the process.Sent on 07/06/2019
Prior to the wedding, she met with our florist and reception coordinator, on her own time. She listened to our requests and offered some of her own money-saving ideas. She's a wealth of knowledge regarding vendors and all things DIY.
On the day of, she set up everything for our reception venue, including centerpieces and the dessert table. Dances, toasts, and dinner were all on time. She single-handedly kept our reception running smoothly.
Our wedding day turned out so well, and we received tons of compliments. I would recommend Vanessa for any-budget brides/grooms looking to work with someone who is reasonable, level-headed, and can help you manage the waters of the wedding industry. She's the best!
P.S. You might be able to rent some decor items from her too.

The DIY Bride SD made my dream wedding come to life!
Hiring The DIY Bride SD was, without a doubt, the most valuable investment we made for our wedding day (not to mention the most affordable)! My husband and I got to enjoy every minute of our ceremony and reception because of Vanessa's role as our day-of coordinator. Not only did she help set up the venue and ensure that the day unfolded as planned, but she also took amazing care of our vendors, guests, bridal party, and parents. Vanessa's competence and confidence put us all at ease. She was also extremely helpful leading up to the wedding day. My husband and I planned our entire wedding ourselves, but without Vanessa's input and creative ideas, we would have overlooked important and thoughtful details. Thank you so much, Vanessa, for your heart to serve us DIY brides! You made my dream wedding come to life.Sent on 04/26/2019
