We cannot say enough good things about our experience working with The Ideal Day! Laura is everything you could want in a planner. She was able to answer every question and address every issue (real and imagined). We were so thankful to have Laura's guidance in selecting our amazing vendors. She took care to recommend vendors that fit with our vision and personalities. She knows how to assist in assembling an amazing team!Sent on 05/15/2017
Laura was constantly checking in with us and available to communicate in person, on the phone and via email. Every meeting and conversation was productive and gave us the reassurance that we were working with a true professional. She provided us with organized timelines for our wedding day for ourselves, our vendors and our wedding party. If anything went wrong on our wedding day we will never know, Laura handled every detail and her execution was impeccable.

Bridget and Laura are the BEST. We changed (okay, fired) our not-so-great wedding coordinator halfway through the planning process and they came to the rescue as sane, competent and all-around awesome people who helped us with every last detail (and there were lots). They were patient with our many questions and the many lists/spreadsheets we sent their way. They coordinated pickup/drop-off of our decor the week of and took care of the details, like dropping off gift bags at our hotels. On the day of, Bridget was totally calm and collected and helped with my dress when it needed to be re-pinned, as well as took all the extra "stuff" back to our apartment so we didn't have to worry about it that night. We were SO happy to have their help and so glad we could focus on enjoying our day because of them. I highly recommend using them as your "day of" planner!Sent on 07/16/2015

I chose The Ideal Day because I needed a Day of Coordinator (DOC) for my wedding ceremony. My reception location had it's own event organizer. The chapel was a self-service one so any decorations or set-ups had to be done by me and my fiancé. I knew I couldn't handle everything so The Ideal Day offered just what I needed. I worked with Laura primarily up until the wedding but another person was going to be my DOC. We had a meet-n-greet at the chapel about a month before the wedding day with Laura and Bridget. They were both easy going, understanding and helped with where we should place things on the altar, etc. I felt very confident that Bridget was going to have my back. The day of the wedding, Bridget was there early waiting for the florist and to start putting up the decorations. She also helped me get dressed. She seemed to be in many places at once yet she never seemed stressed. Both my fiancé and I had wardrobe malfunctions and Bridget came to the rescue for both of us. She help us keep to our timeline which was important to us. At the end of the ceremony, she quickly had everything packed up and in the limo before I realized what was going on.Sent on 05/18/2015
