    Amy, of Always A Planner, was some of the best money we spent for our wedding day! I was able to plan most of the day by myself, but I really needed someone to tie it all together towards the end and make sure I wasn't forgetting anything. Throughout the planning process, she would check in just to see if we needed anything, make sure we were on track. And, if we had any questions, thoughts, concerns, anything we wanted to run by her, we could email anytime! She also had some recommendations for other vendors that she has worked with. For the actual wedding events, she was seriously amazing. She worked seamlessly with my other vendors to make sure everything ran smoothly and according to plan. She came to our rehearsal, worked with our priest, had a printed schedule for everyone for the next day, and just helped me to feel ready for the big day! Amy provided ten hours of service on the wedding day, which was perfect. Amy kept me calm, kept the bridal party on track, and was back and forth between the vendors and the groom/groomsmen without me even realizing it! One especially helpful moment: we were going to write our own intercessions for our Catholic Mass. Of course, I had forgotten, but remembered to jot some down the night before, but the priest didn't have them. Since we were doing pictures, putting on final touches, and getting ready to walk, Amy took care of working with our priest to ensure our custom intercessions were read in the Mass. Just one more thing I didn't have to worry about! By the end of the wedding planning and process, Amy was more a friend than a vendor! Book her, you won't regret it!

    Amy made my daughter's wedding day, as well as the weeks leading up to the day, run so smoothly. She was so organized and willing to jump in whenever we needed her - including the crazy wedding morning when our flowers were later than we expected. She even sewed a groomsman's jacket that split in the back of the church! She communicated with the vendors and established a timeline which was distributed to everyone involved. We had quite a bit of decor that we DIYed and were bringing to the venue. She made sure that everything looked exactly as we envisioned. During the wedding she was there for anything we needed, but somehow managed to remain behind the scenes. She even stayed to help us pack everything up. She is really pleasant , extremely responsive and very professional. I highly recommend her!

    Choosing to work with Amy to coordinate my day-of wedding details was one of the best decisions we made! Amy and her team of professionals were absolutely fantastic. She was always prompt in correspondence, made herself available whenever we needed a quick huddle, and executed all of the decor so wonderfully the day of our wedding. It was so nice to not have to think about the schedule and logistics and enjoy our day, knowing that we were in good hands with Amy! I would HIGHLY recommend her services to future brides/grooms and cannot stress enough how much a day of coordinator helped us to relax and just enjoy every moment of our special day! Thank you so much, Amy!

    Simply put, Amy of Always a Planner is amazing. She is extremely knowledgable of all things wedding, from the venue, to the flowers, decor, DJ, limo...anything you can imagine, Amy can recommend ideas, give suggestions, and steer you in the right direction. She is never "pushy" like some planners- she always wants to help you make your wedding how you envision it. She is the "go-to" person you need when planning. My husband and I were not into the planning, so we were able to rely on Amy for many vendor recommendations without having to research much on our own. Our wedding ran so smoothly as Amy had a timeline planned, and she often reassured me of "backup plans" for the many scenarios I imagined happening (rain, etc.). The day of our wedding, unbeknownst to us, our Photo Booth arrived late. Thanks to Amy, who handled the situation without us even knowing, it was taken care of and she helped keep our day stress-free. I would recommend Amy to anyone planning a wedding. She is highly professional, hard-working, and will help you plan your dream wedding while staying within your budget.

    Working with Amy was amazing! Very easy to get along with. I had a vision for my wedding and she made sure it went as planned. She was very accommodating for planning meetings and would respond quickly to emails. On the wedding day she was always in reach if I needed anything. When I wasn't able to do my sparkler send off due to the rain she quickly helped me re-organize end of the night. I didn't have any worries about the night. My maid of honor even used her for her wedding a few months later!

    Amy from Always a Planner was phenomenal. From guiding us with venue information to helping ensure everything ran smoothly the day of, Amy was amazing. Amy listened to all of our needs and wants and helped us stay within our anticipated budget. As time got closer, and the stress level increased, Amy eased all of my fears by reaching out to my vendors and emailing a detailed plan for the day of. She helped with creating a list of "must do photos" and made sure that our wedding day was absolutely perfect!

    Amy exceeded all of our expectations! She is a kind, extremely knowledgable, and super attentive professional. I had a vision for what I wanted our special Halloween wedding to be like. Amy carried out all of the details wonderfully without missing a beat! She was just an absolute delight to work with. There are so many moving parts to the day of, and there was no better feeling then having such an awesome coordinator on our side to handle everything. We were able to relax and just focus on celebrating our love. I cannot recommend her enough- she truly is the BEST!

    A friend recommended Amy to me and told me it was the best money she spent for her wedding. We couldn't agree more. Best money spent. Amy is so great to work with and we didn't worry about a thing the day of the wedding. She had everything covered!! It was such a great feeling to be able to enjoy the day and know that she had it under control. We would definitely recommend using Amy for your wedding.

    Let me start out by saying I can be slightly OCD - I had this vision of my day and I wanted everything to be nothing short of perfection, as does any other bride. I tell everyone and continue to tell people that the absolute best investment we made for our wedding day was hiring Amy. I didn't have to worry about a thing!
    A major storm was approaching and our ceremony was outside, I had no Plan B for our ceremony. Amy watched the doppler, gathered all the guests to take their seats and made sure the ceremony started promptly at 5:30 pm. We got through the ceremony and were inside no more then 10 minutes and the skies opened up and it POURED!! All of my guest mentioned the perfect timing - but I knew it was all thanks to Amy!!
    I had no questions from vendors, everything was set up perfectly, the venue looked stunning, everything ran on time - all thanks to Amy!
    I had looked into other coordinators and the prices I was quoted were insane, how could anyone ever afford a coordinator I thought? After speaking with our florist they had suggested we give Amy a call. She is so sweet and lovely, wants everything to be perfect and is affordable! We met at Barnes and Nobles to get to know each other over coffee and we hit it off perfectly. She responded to all of my emails and crazy questions timely and was as sweet as pie the entire process.
    Can't forget to mention - she created a timeline and sent it to all of my vendors and bridal party so everyone knew where they had to be and when. Even what time I needed to get dressed!!
    I literally had no worries the entire day. I had family and friends tell me how how calm and stress free I seemed the day of the wedding and it's because I had nothing to worry about. Everything was absolutely perfect!! Amy - I can never thank you enough!!

    Amy was absolutely amazing for the whole planning time, and certainly a life saver in those critical few days before the wedding. To start she met with us to get an idea of our vision, Amy is very warm, attentive and practical. She is very timely with her communications, budget conscious, and clearly dedicated herself to bringing our wedding to life. She was supportive to me personally, and kept me from stressing, so I enjoyed the planning and being engaged!
    As we began selecting vendors, she found people that worked right into my vision and budget, and set up all the meetings for me. I was so grateful to work with someone who had connections in my area, and was able to share her honest and objective experiences when working with different vendors.
    Very wet weather and a thrown out back the week leading up to the wedding left me feeling overwhelmed and upset that our vision would be washed away with the rain. I wasn't able to move around or stand up straight the couple of days before my wedding, and Amy stayed positive, took over everything and executed the perfect day. We would not have been able to have any wedding, much less the wedding we'd been dreaming up, if it hadn't been for Amy. Thank you for everything Amazing Amy!

    I couldn't have asked for a more stress-free and totally enjoyable wedding day, all thanks to Amy's amazing day-of coordinating services! She was incredibly professional and detail-oriented in all of our communication leading up to the wedding, conducting the rehearsal, and the actual wedding day. She was very easy to work with and talk to, and offered a lot of great advice and alternative ideas since our wedding was on the more non-traditional side with several different cultural customs. She even handled setting up and breaking down all of the centerpieces and other decor which was a huge help. I felt like I got to enjoy my wedding day as much as I could and actually talk to my friends and family and dance for most of the night. I wasn't dealing with vendors or other potential issues since I knew Amy was there to intercept any questions or make decisions about any last minute changes. I highly recommend her services; my wedding would not have been the same or as much fun without her there!

    We hired Amy as our "Day of Coordinator" for our wedding and it was, without a doubt, the best decision we made. There was no way the day would have gone as smoothly or stress free if it wasn't for her help.

    She worked with all of our vendors, made sure everything was in the right place and everyone was enjoying themselves. Hands down, the best money we spent on our wedding. She stayed in constant communication with us and our vendors leading up to the wedding and as a result had the entire timeline planned out for us.

    If there was an emergency, we could turn to Amy and she was already on top of it. She was there first thing in the morning and one of the last ones there at night. After the event was over, I had family members, friends and even some of the vendors coming up to me and commenting on how amazing it was to have Amy around.
    She truly made a remarkable impact on our day and we will be sure to recommend her and her services to any of our friends or family.

    We hired Amy as our "day of planner" for our wedding last month. We were originally on the fence about hiring a planner, since we had more or less already planned the whole wedding, but we could not have made a better decision to work Amy at Always a Planner! She truly helped to execute the wedding of our dreams! We are certain that the whole day/night would not have gone as smoothly if we did not have her! She is the perfect blend of assertive and calm, and with everything we and many others threw at her, she didn't blink and did everything with a smile and positive attitude! She was extremely flexible when working with us and our vendors to schedule final meetings/walk throughs. Everyone from our bridal party, vendors, family, etc had nothing but nice things to say about working with Amy and I quickly agreed! We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a stress-free, flawless wedding day! :)

    AMY TO THE RESCUE!!! We hired Amy as our day-of coordinator. My husband and I both shoot weddings professionally and knew that we wanted a wedding with more personal touches but were adamant that we did not want to deal with anything on the day-of. We knew we could handle the planning since we’re in the industry but we’ve seen plenty of distracted brides/grooms when shooting weddings to know that we needed day-of help. Our wedding venue was a non-traditional venue which meant that a lot of moving parts had to fall into place to make the day possible (caterer was separate from the alcohol, which was separate from the centerpieces, and separate from the cake, etc etc). Amy not only coordinated the set-up, flow, and breakdown of our event, but she helped with layouts and timelines as well! She got all of our centerpieces done beautifully (DIY pieces that had to be assembled on-site), decorated the venue, and made sure that our wedding day ran smoothly. Amy scored bonus points when we were hit with huge news: our organist bailed TWO DAYS before our wedding. All it took was one email to Amy and within two hours, she had already gone through a LIST of contacts and had a new organist for us (within our budget!!!!) and our ceremony went off without a hitch. Aside from her technical skills and connections, she is a ridiculously nice person, easy to work with, always available to answer questions, and an overall great person to be around!! My biggest piece of advice to a bride/groom from another professional: do yourself a favor and hire Amy to help you with your big day; she saved my ceremony, reception, and my sanity.

    Amy helped me pull my wedding together perfectly. From vendor shopping and meeting with us to discuss the details to being there the whole day to keep me on schedule and not worry about a thing she was there. She created schedules and coordinated my bridal party, vendors, and every big moment of the day. Every vendor was communicated with beforehand and I seriously just had to show up. It was amazing! Thank you for everything Amy!

    Amy did a fantastic job with helping us plan and coordinate our wedding. She anticipated everything we needed, and when our photographer fell through she even took some amazing photos for us! We had a weekend wedding, so there was lots to coordinate- but Amy took care of everything and made it so easy for us to enjoy our wedding. All of our guests told us it was the best wedding they'd ever attended! I would absolutely recommend Amy to anyone who wants as stress-free a wedding as possible.

    Hiring Amy was truly one of the best wedding planning decisions my husband and I made! She was invaluable to us on our wedding day and in the days leading up to it. Our wedding day would not have gone as smoothly as it did, and we would not have enjoyed our day as much as we did, if it hadn't been for Amy. And she was such a pleasurable to work with - incredibly efficient and such a genuinely sweet person. Our other vendors, families, and wedding party all loved working with her.

    Amy created timelines for our wedding day for us, our wedding party, and our vendors. She reached out to all our vendors in advance of the wedding and made herself available to us for anything we might need in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Our wedding was an hour and a half away in Cape May, and we had so many things to transport down there. Amy made two trips to us to pick up items to take down with her to help lighten our load.

    On our wedding day, Amy was our go-to for so many little details that we wouldn't have even thought of in advance. Because of Amy, we truly didn't need to worry about anything that day except enjoying our moment. I can't say enough good things about her and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services to anyone planning a wedding.

    Hiring Amy is our day of coordinator was the best decision we made when planning our wedding! I didn't think I would need a day of coordinator and thought I could handle everything on my own. About 2 months prior to my wedding, I started to realize I didn't want to have to worry about anything that day and that's when we decided to book Amy to help.

    Leading up to the wedding, Amy was very helpful and responsive with any questions we had. She came out to the venue to meet with myself and the wedding coordinator at the club so that she can get to know her and see the space, which we really appreciated since it was Memorial Day Weekend and wasn't a short drive for her! She was in touch with all of the vendors prior to the wedding and the day of could not have gone more smoothly. She made sure both families had everything they needed and everything was where it needed to be. One of our biggest requests was to make sure everything went as planned with the trolleys transporting guests to/from the reception and I had people come up to me to tell me how organized the whole process was! Our wedding came together perfectly and the entire day was exactly how my husband and I envisioned it to be, thanks to Amy! She was very organized and professional and both of our parents were so happy and thankful that we had her there to help with our day.

    We highly recommend Amy!

    I used Always A Planner's services for my wedding and have nothing but wonderful praise for Amy Liberi. She is extremely professional and very quick to respond to questions or concerns. She's resourceful and thoughtful as well. Amy came up with ideas to help make our special day go smoother before I even had a chance to worry about them...what more could a bride ask for?! For example, about 2 days before our wedding the forecast changed and that bridal curse word starting getting tossed around...RAIN. Right on cue, Amy called and proactively addressed the forecast woes with me. She immediately offered to bring a stash of really pretty white umbrellas that my bridesmaids & I could use, in the event that rain moved in before we could finish our outdoor photographs. And seeing that our reception was at a winery, outdoor pictures in the beautiful vineyards were a must. Amy also pays great attention to detail as well which was a HUGE help to me. Unfortunately the weather did start to turn as we were taking those outdoor pictures and the wind began wreaking havoc with my dress and cathedral-length veil. Once again right on cue, Amy actually spoke up and told my photographer to hold on for a second while she ran into the shot and spread my train and veil out in front of me. She single-handedly helped transform photos that I would've been pretty bummed about (with a rolled up, bunched up train and veil) into photos that I LOVE. She's awesome!

    It's very evident that Amy loves wedding planning and staying two steps ahead to keep her brides beaming instead of worrying. She's such a sweet, genuine person overflowing with kindness and excitement that every bride needs leading up to their big day! I simply cannot thank Always A Planner enough for all of her help!

    I am so thankful that we hired Amy as our wedding coordinator! My husband was hesitant when I told him that I wanted to hire someone to help us on the day of the wedding, and admits now that things would not have gone as smoothly as they did without her. Amy really went above and beyond for us. She attended our rehearsal, set up our ceremony space, picked up items from us last-minute on the day of our wedding, ensured that our reception venue was set-up correctly, communicated with our vendors on the day of our wedding, and did a million more things behind the scenes. She is also incredibly sweet and organized, and did anything I asked on the day of the wedding. She really made our day everything we hoped it would be, and my husband and I couldn't be more grateful to her. And on top of it all, her rates are incredibly affordable. My friends paid lots more to other coordinators for the same services. Hire her!

    I was so lucky to be referred to Amy and so glad she was available. She is knowledgeable, professional, kind, resourceful, and patient and goes beyond the line of duty. She actually loaned me her own veil for my reception--my something borrowed:)! I had an interfaith, inter cultural, multilingual ceremony with 8 flower girls and a prickly Catholic priest and she somehow was able to manage it all flawlessly and with a smile. I couldn't have asked for more!

    We hired Amy as our day of coordinator and I could not say enough great things about her. Amy is incredibly detail oriented and understood our needs and what we wanted on our day. I would definitely recommend Amy to other brides who want to lighten their "wedding planning load" and truly be able to enjoy their wedding day without worrying about the details.
