We were lucky enough to have used Jennifer Fulford from Consultants Unlimited as our wedding planner. I am so thankful that we did. She helped us plan as much or as little as we wanted, was happy to give input when needed, but was not pushy in the least. The day of the wedding , we could not have done it without her. We had my daughters wedding at our home, and without her there for guidance, it would have been totally stressful. Stress is not what you want to deal with as Mother of the Bride. You, as well as everyone else, wants to relax and enjoy the day. Jennifer provided us with that peace of mind. I can't even describe how hard she worked running back and forth dealing with tiny issues that popped up during the evening, while I, the bride and our family were able to enjoy the event. I was not sure when we began planning this wedding whether or not we would need a planner. Oh my gosh.....if you are planning a wedding, I cannot stress how much easier your life will be if you have one. I loved Jennifer, as did the entire wedding party.....and that is saying something as she had the task of wrangling everyone and telling them what to do and where to go, but in the nicest way possible. The money you spend on a wedding planner is a drop in the bucket compared to the rest of the expenses.....I HIGHLY recommend Jennifer and Consultants Unlimited. Some of the best money we spent for my daughters wedding.

Mary Ellen was an absolute God send. She was available whenever I needed her and was willing to help me whenever I needed it. Mary Ellen was a huge reason why our wedding was so successful. She was accommodating and when it showed it was definitely going to rain, she kicked it into high gear and made sure I had no reservations and neither did my mom. I would recommend her to the moon and back.Sent on 05/03/2014

I cannot say enough good things about this company. All I can say is that you MUST use these guys if you are getting married anywhere near Athens or Atlanta (and they may even work with you further out; I'm not sure). I'm sure all of their coordinators are great, but my coordinator, Mary Ellen, was absolutely incredible. Request her if you can get her. She was always available when I had questions in the months leading up to the wedding, and she worked so hard to make sure that everything went perfect for the entire wedding weekend. Our family and friends are not always an easy group to handle, but she kept them in line and made sure, above all else, that things were done according to what we wanted. My mom is still talking about what a godsend she was. No matter who you get, this company makes SURE that your coordinator is there with you all the way through and that the person you've worked with for months is actually there with you on the day of the wedding. They are flexible, knowledgeable, professional, and seemingly prepared for anything. Just awesome!Sent on 10/20/2013

Jennifer was my Day of Coordinator and we worked well together. She was my eyes and ears and gave me a lot of honest opinions on a number of things which I greatly appreciated. I want to let everyone know how organized, prompt, flexible, structured, and cooperative she is. I feel so blessed that we were paired up because we made an awesome team. Thank you so much Jennifer for you timeline, your patience, your sternness, and constant communication with me during the ceremony. You were awesome. Consultants Unlimited ROCKS!!!!

Tracey was amazing and very patient with all our questions and craziness. It one of the best things that we spent money on for the wedding. They have many packages to choose from for any budget and need. Thank you Tracey!!!

Consultants Unlimited was wonderful. Jennifer Fulford was my individual planner, and I loved her! I woke up the day of my wedding and was not worried about anything because I knew she had everything under control.

This vendor is AMAZING!!!! Very affordable and perfect for any bride. I was allowed to be as hands on as I wanted to be and our coordinator helped when needed. Our day could not have been better and our coordinator helped us more than she will ever know. So many little things came up during the day that there was no way I could have been prepared for everything. Thanks Consultants Unlimited!!!!! You're the best!

Michele is awesome! Hiring someone to provide a great checklist for details and handle every possible situation on my wedding day was a great investment. I don't know what I would have done without her.

We worked with Christina LaFontaine at Consultants Unlimited and she was fantastic! We hired her for day-of coordination. In the planning stages, she was always available by email and I found her to be quickly responsive. Although I didn't use her help in booking other vendors, she had previously worked with most if not all of my other vendors. She was very professional, fun, and on top of things and I trusted her opinion. Because of all the work Christina did for us, my husband and I were able to have the most spectacular day and enjoy the party. Everything was so smooth and if something did go wrong, I never even knew about it. As far as I know everything was perfect and everyone had a great time. I would highly recommend hiring Christina to anyone who wants to enjoy their own wedding.

I used this company for their wedding consultant services and not for planning services. I honestly don't think I could have gotten married without my consultant! We met with her several times before the wedding and she helped us think of every little detail that would need to be taken care of. She had detailed timelines and worksheets for every event and kept in touch with all of our vendors to make sure everything went smoothly. She was a pleasure to work with and even our wedding guests commented on how nice and professional she was. I can't express how much she helped out and I know I would have been a bridezilla without her!

My wedding planner was awesome! The money I spent on my wedding planner was some of the best money I spent in the entire wedding! At first I didn't think I would need a planner but as time went on I realized I didn't want the stress of making sure everything was running smoothly the day of the wedding. My wedding planner definitely made sure I didn't have to worry about anything that day and I am so thankful for that!

We had Mary from Consultants Unlimited as our day-of coordinator and she was so great to work with! She kept me organized with all of our vendor contact information and created a detailed time line of our entire wedding day to keep things running smoothly. She accommodated all of our requests and was always responsive and helpful. When my mom stepped on her skirt and ripped a small portion of the hem minutes before the ceremony, Mary was there with scissors and safety pins and anything else we needed. When the groom's feet started to hurt at the ceremony, Mary went to his hotel room, found his other dress shoes, and had them waiting under the sweetheart table when we arrived at the reception. I only took off a half of a star from Flexibility because sometimes her schedule was so full, it was hard to find a time to meet. But she worked great with our wedding party and as the day-of point of contact for all of our vendors. I didn't have to worry about a thing. (Left my cell in the hotel room!) Not only did the groom and I feel like guests on our wedding day, but our moms did too, and it was so important to us that they weren't worked to death and were able to enjoy themselves. Mary made that happen.
Ellen · Married on 07/16/2011
All I can say about Mary Ellen of Consultant's Unlimited is that this woman must be magic! We hired her after finalizing all of our major decisions solely to show up on the day of and make things happen but she did so much more than that. We had multiple in person meetings with her in the months and weeks leading up to the wedding and she addressed many details that I never would have thought of on my own. She also did a fabulous job of coordinating all our vendors and made the entire weekend run smoothly. I could not have been more impressed by her and am so grateful for everything she did! Hiring a day of coordinator was definitely the best decision we made.
Joi · Married on 05/07/2011
Excellent service. Took their years of experience and blended them with my ideas for a perfect day that ran smoothly. Wonderful job. I woudl highly recommend them for your wedding planning and coordination needs.
Lisa · Married on 09/14/2008
Christina was great. She was super flexible, knowledgeable, and had a lot of good ideas and suggestions. She definitley made our day for us so we didn't have to think about anything! The cost was well-worth it and I thought it was a great deal with the number of meetings we had. Highly recommend!

Diana was my coordinator and I loved her. She did such an awesome job paying attention to every detail and I honestly felt zero stress on our big day. Diana not only rearranged her schedule to make it to our rehearsal on Thursday, but she then was back in action on Saturday for the wedding. Our guests had nothing but great things to say about how the evening went and I seriously owe a lot of that to Diana. She was organized, on point and ran the show. I would hire her again in a heartbeat. Thanks Diana!

Consultants Unlimited provided me with great service for a good price for my short wedding with a strict timeline. Our wedding coordinator Mary was phenomenal and I am so pleased with all the meetings I had with her leading up to our wedding as well as her service at the rehearsal and wedding day

Michele planned every last detail--things I didn't even think to think about. She took care of everything, from the exact timing of the ceremony to the best placement of reception tables. She even had mine and my husband's food already set up at the sweetheart table so we actually had time to eat while everyone else was in line.
The day before the wedding, we realized we forgot to make programs--she even jumped in and did extra work to make sure we had everything. My pastor said it was the smoothest wedding he had ever seen.
Michele took the stress out of the day so we could enjoy the wedding!
