    Pleasure to work with

    Bethany was really great in helping me plan my wedding from afar. She was very flexible and creative in finding vendors and items that were in my slim budget. She kept me on track with timing and really helped with my piece of mind.

    Very happy with my invitations

    I contracted Lilypad to design and print invitations for a surprise 50th wedding anniversary party I'm throwing for my parents. Brent was very professional to work with and did a fantastic job with the design. I've received so many compliments on how nice the invitations came out. I would definitely recommend them, and use Lilypad in the future.

    Pretty in Pinks Barn Wedding

    Team Lilypad was ESSENTIAL in making my wedding day come to life. From the custom flower arrangements, centerpieces and favors to the hanging of lights, drapes and other decor, they really pulled out all the steps while guiding my fiancé and I so we kept within a comfortable budget. They also did all our stationery, escort cards and other printed items. We are so happy we hired them!

    The Re-Enforcement has Arrived

    I am very experienced in throwing events in my backyard, but as the time ticked down I realized I may have bitten off more than I could chew with hosting a wedding! I am so thankful that I hired Lilypad to help me with some last minute items (sourcing and setting up linens, finding a tent and custom cocktail napkins). Bethany was professional, honest and adaptable to my changing design ideas.

    Bethany was fantastic!! She saved us money and time by finding us the best rentals and services for our wedding. She genuinely cared about us as a couple and wanted us to have the best wedding possible. The night before the wedding when the makeup artist that I chose cancelled, Bethany saved the day and found me a new one. This planner is amazing and worth every penny! My wedding was perfect and so is she.

    Bethany is a gem! She is friendly, responsive, and a must-have for any wedding! She handled all aspects of my son’s wedding, and we were completely thrilled with Lilypad, Bethany, and Brent. They made our day special and beautiful. Thank you to Bethany and Brent! We couldn’t have done it without you!

    I cannot begin to describe how wonderful my experience with Lilypad was. My husband and I had a relatively low budget, but I still knew I needed a planner. When Bethany and I met for my initial consolation, we clicked instantly and I knew she was going to be the best choice to help me through the planning process. She thought of ideas I never would have thought of and was always able to tactfully tell me if an idea wasn't going to work the best or respectfully tell me how to handle a situation with my family I didn't know how to handle. She had the perfect balance of letting me plan what I wanted while beautifully filling in the gaps that I left to make sure everything would be perfect. She was also super flexible with us in terms of payment plans and meeting times.
    I was initially worried about the cost of a planner with my budget, but the service and overall experience I received from Lilypad was worth way more than the cost. If you even think you might need a planner, don't hesitate to give Lilypad a call. I'm so happy I chose them and would do so again in a heartbeat.

    My daughter and I met with Bethany at a point in the wedding planning where we had already engaged all the vendors. We were looking for help in executing my daughter's vision for her wedding (without breaking the bank) and event coordination "the day of". Bethany and Brent did a magnificent job in these areas, often went beyond to guide us, giving us the benefit of their extensive experience. Their fees were reasonable and they stayed within our budget. Our daughter is very creative and had a well-developed theme in mind. Their in-house design and print capabilities were outstanding in executing her vision and resulted in considerable savings (and considerable positive feedback from our guests). They worked with us when we requested changes at inopportune times and always were professional about it. They never let personal issues get in the way of providing us their best customer service. In the "heat" of the day before and day of our event, they were a calm presence, solving (inevitable) problems easily. I admit that at first I was hesitant to hire a wedding coordinator, but I now think it was our best decision. Lilypad was the best fit for us. Bottom line, with their help we had a perfect wedding and I would recommend them without reservation!

    Bethany and Brent were amazing. They thought of every detail including things we never would have thought of. They were attentive, approachable and extremely willing to share the process and decision making with us. We had a vague vision and they brought it to life. I was absolutely shocked when I saw the venue for the first time on the night of the reception. It took my breath away..... absolutely stunning. It was all the guests could talk about.... can't tell you how many times we heard the words " over the top" and breath taking. Would use Lilypad again in a heartbeat...... they took a normally stressful day and allowed it to be stress less and absolutely enjoyable!

    Working with Bethany at Lilypad was a great experience, they made my daughters wedding into a princess evening. We had it in a barn and she transformed it into something spectacular. I would recommend Lilypad to anyone who needs creativity and professionalism.

    For my daughters wedding August 20th we were on a budget and Bethany worked around that and made it look perfect, so no matter what budget, what occasion it is Bethany and her team are the people to call. They are compassionate and have the greatest ideas on how everything will look. The lights, the tool, the table decorations it all fit into our budget and was beautiful and a night to remember.

    Bethany and Brent were great to work with. They planned 2 wedding ceremonies and 2 receptions for us and it turned out beautiful. They were easy to reach when things came up and were great in communicating and updating us on what was happening. I am very grateful I chose to hire Lilypad wedding planning. It made my wedding day stress free, everything was planned and executed beautifully. We had many people come up to us and tell us this was the best wedding they had ever been to and that we were so calm and happy through out the whole hectic day.....that is because we were calm and happy! We were well taken care of and felt we got really tailored personal service.

    Lilypad went above and beyond to create a birthday invitation for me with a very quick turn around time. I am consistently impressed with their ability to create something special for me and I 100% recommend them to provide amazing service, and unique and personal designs. Being able to stop in at Lilypad Wedding & Events at my convenience was also very much appreciated!

    Bethany really went above and beyond helping with our wedding planning. She called vendors, and met with them on occasion when I couldn't come into town; she was very responsive to my questions (and patient). Since I was planning while living out of town, I couldn't have done it without her. She really worked hard to bring my vision to life, and I was able to relax on the wedding day knowing she and Brent were there to help execute everything. It was also extremely helpful to have my save the dates, invitations, favor boxes, programs, etc., all handled by them too. I'm extremely happy with how everything turned out and incredibly grateful for Lilypad's service.

    Bethany created my invitations for my wedding in November. They came out even better than I had hoped. I liked Bethany from the beginning because she tells you like it is (respectfully of course!). I thought I knew what would look good but she was able to point things out from her professional opinion which helped a lot. She was very clear in the expectations she had for me (check names, spelling, addresses, etc.). She caught things that I missed - it's always nice to have someone who really double and triple checks their work. I look forward to working with Lilypad in the future.

    Bethany at Lilypad is the BEST planner I have every run into and in my various jobs I have met a lot - the team of photographer, DJ, Officiate, Caterer, florist and venue worked like a well oiled machine and the limo driver even jointed the celebration before making sure all our "drank too much" guests made it home safely.

    I live in Miami, Florida - there is no way Tom & I could have had this wonderful party or "Murphy Shindig" without Bethany. If anyone is considering an event in the Buffalo, Tonawanda, Nigeria Falls area and you don't use Lilypad, your event will not be the best it could have been!!!

    The team at Lilypad is patient and pays attention to detail (a compliment our wedding has been receiving). They were always reachable and very creative. They would take an idea I had an added to it. The design elements they came up with stuck with our colors and theme; and day of - - everything was pulled-off without a hitch! They saved the day when our place cards were MIA and handled the variety of personalities in our fun wedding party, and two large families, seamlessly. The weeks leading up to and after were less stressful when Lilypad helped cart items to not only our reception site, but the church and rehearsal dinner venue. I don't know what I would have done without them - - except keep them in my Rolodex for future events!

    Lilypad advertises how to turn life’s most special moments into fine memories by creating unique signature events. Well, that is only half the story. They have created a signature wedding not only for us, but for our guests as well. We have received messages stating “best night ever”, “great memories from last night”, “it was magical, perfect”, “the wedding was fabulous and so much fun”, “great night”, “you made your guests feel special with the little touches”. Those are just a sampling of what we felt as well.

    We can’t thank Lilypad enough for helping us to make memories that will last a lifetime, not just for us, but for everyone who was involved with our wedding. We keep on talking about how perfect everything was from the signature hors d’oeuvres to the best dessert table. We also feel we have gained two great friends! They really captured “us” for our wedding day, and also shared the love on that day with us and our guests.

    Our experience with Bethany and Brent from Lillypad was absolutely fantastic. Bethany was instrumental in creating a unique, personalized and signature wedding day for David and I. Bethany's attention to detail, relationship with vendors, professionalism and personality are just a few of the wonderful things about her as a planner. The planning process is naturally very intimidating, and Bethany made sure that the whole process was fun, enjoyable and a great experience. Due to Lillypad's relationship with various vendors, a significant amount of money was saved, while preserving a great experience with each of the vendors. Bethany and Brent were also intimately involved in the "day of" coordination -- from the moment we arrived at the venue to the moment we left, they were in control of the whole day, and made it as carefree to us as possible...every detail was taken care of. That alone is reassuring and priceless. I HIGHLY recommend Lillypad for your planning needs, but at the same time I want to keep them as a "hidden gem!"

    Bethany and Brent were there for my husband and I from start to finish. We chose the Lilypad Preferred package, and we were so happy that we did! This is a great package for couples that do not have a lot of time to put into planning, but would still like to be involved, and if you want to be only minimally involved that's ok too! Lilypad is very flexible in that you can meet with them as much or as little as you like. Meetings we had with them involved designing the save the dates, designing invites, discussing and meeting with vendors, discussing decor and design, and discussing wedding day itinerary toward the end. Bethany made multiple trips to our venue on her own to discuss all of the ins and outs with the owner. With our package Lilypad coordinated EVERYTHING! We literally did not have to do a thing the day prior to or the day of the wedding. This was the biggest value. We know lots of couples who have had to scramble a few days prior to the wedding and the day of to deliver things, set things up, etc, and we have always said that is one thing we do not want to do....and we didn't! Lilypad is an all in one event planner. They made/purchased for us and set up all decor - everything from the signage to the personalized napkins to the welcome bags for guests staying in the hotel with blocked rooms! Bethany and Brent truly listened to all of our ideas and concerns and made them priority. You are not just another number or client with Lilypad! Lilypad took a restaurant that is nice on its own with good bones, and turned it into an elegant and romantic wedding venue! We could not have asked for 2 better people to work with in planning our wedding! Some people think wedding planners are not affordable and an unnecessary expense....it is the exact opposite. It is the best investment we made in wedding planning!

    I can't count how many times people complimented us on our wedding day on how smooth our ceremony went. They were thanking us for little things that we never would've thought to to or have unless we hired Lilypad. Little touches that made our ceremony unique and inviting and actually entertained our guests! Lilypad went above and beyond to add creative touches that made smooth transitions. They also found a way to make our reception highlight the unique things about my HUSBAND and I. I'm so thankful to have found Lilypad and will be recommending them to all of my friends!
