Make room in your budget!!!
A day of coordinator was not initially in my budget, and my mom wasn’t on board with the expense at first. However, both of us are SO thankful we hired Rachel and Meaghan.Sent on 07/24/2019
I planned my wedding on my own and my family lives in a different state. I didn’t want to rely on friends to take care of responsibilities on the wedding day because I didn’t want to have to tell people what to do or worry if things were getting done. Rachel and Meaghan handled everything and gave me peace of mind. I was aware of some of the things they did (made sure everyone had the right boutonnières and bouquets, greeted all the vendors day of, organized the processional, etc) but there were also SO many things they did behind the scenes that I didn’t even know about until later (made sure my belongings including my phone which had been misplaced were in the get away car, packed my 100 year old veil inside my garment bag, fixed the table settings after the catered had messed them up and so much more). I had a dreamy wedding experience because I didn’t have to think about a thing.
My advice is to cut costs in other ways at your wedding (cake, DJ, lighting) but don’t skimp on a coordinator. Hiring Rachel and Meaghan was easily one of the best wedding decisions I made.

Exactly what we needed!
My daughter and I planned her wedding long-distance since neither of us live in the Nashville area. From our first consultation with Rachel, she made us feel at ease and confident that all would turn out well. It was such a relief to have her coordinating our vendors so we didn't have to worry about it. She was easy to contact and is so experienced, she was able to address any issues we were having. On the actual wedding day, Rachel and Meghan were both on site the entire time. They assisted with setup and made sure that everything ran smoothly. We were able to fully enjoy the ceremony and reception with our family and friends. Such a gift! After the beautifully coordinated exit of the bride and groom, they packed up all the boxes of decorations we had brought so we were able to leave the venue quickly. We were so appreciative since we were exhausted by that point. Thank you again Rachel and Meghan!! Highly recommend!!Sent on 07/02/2019
