If you have hesitation to hire a wedding coordinator, I would say do it. It was the best decision I made when it came to wedding planning, despite me originally not wanting to spend the extra money. Planned to Perfection of the Bluegrass is very reasonably priced and definitely worth every penny. I got to work with both Lyndsey and Betsy for my wedding, and they were absolutely fantastic and definitely knew their stuff. Me and my now husband had a long engagement, but they were there from the beginning to the end despite just being hired for "day of". They would answer any questions I had, guided me in my vendors and any wedding decisions I had to make, planned my wedding timeline, met with me several times prior to my wedding, contacted all my vendors one week prior to my wedding, were at my rehearsal, and were at my wedding all day and night even helping my family to clean up afterwards. Because of them, I knew everything was taken of. So if you are looking for wedding coordinator, I would definitely advise you to pick Planned to Perfection of the Bluegrass. They definitely live up to their name. Because of them, my wedding was absolutely perfect and was everything I had ever dreamed it to be. Thank you Lyndsey and Betsy for everything!Sent on 08/08/2016

Planned to perfection was just what I needed to make my day perfect!

We worked with Lyndsey! Everything went smoothly! We have no complaints.
She was a delight to work with!

Hiring Betsy from Planned to Perfection as our Day of Coordinator was the best decision we made when planning our wedding! We were on a budget, so her knowledge and relationships with other vendors in our area helped us save money without risky quality. She recommended so many great people for us to work with that helped make our day perfect from the DJ to the catering company! Betsy answered my questions via email, call, and text at the drop of a dime. She was super responsive and helpful throughout the entire planning process. The day of our wedding was as stress free and perfect as it could get - she went above and beyond for us! It was so nice having her there to make sure people were in the right places at the right time - it took a lot of work off our family and friends so they were able to enjoy the day / evening as well. Betsy truly cares about every detail and has a true passion and talent for this industry. She even drove us around our wedding site in the pouring rain to help us get some really awesome pictures at different locations! I would recommend Betsy and her company to every bride I know. Even though my groom may have been a little skeptical about spending the money to hire a DOC, at the end of our wedding night, he expressed that she was worth every penny! If you are looking for a DOC, this is your gal!

My fiance and I decided in September that we were going to tie the knot in December! I knew what I wanted on some things, and was completely clueless on others. Betsy and Lyndsey helped fill in the details and guided me through the process. They were extremely attentive and responsive. They went above and beyond, and turned my dream into a reality. It was the most perfect, stress-free day thanks to them!

Betsy was absolutely incredible. Our wedding went off without a hitch and Betsy was there at every step of the way. We are both working professionals that travel frequently and were planning our KY wedding from DC. Betsy was flexible in every way, working with us via telephone, email, and text. Everything went smoothly the day of and our guests have raved about the wedding ever since. She has great relationships with several vendors which we thought really helped keep everything low stress and running smoothly. I could not recommend Betsy and her team enough.

Betsy, from PtP, was a God sent! We could not have asked for a better wedding planner and someone to help us make our big day come to life. Coming in late in the game after another wedding planner back out on us for business reasons, she came in and picked up the pieces and ran with it. From our first meeting all we got was the utmost professionalism. I could tell she really wanted to know exactly what my vision was and was totally willing to look through photo after photo of what I wanted. She was great at telling me what was realistic, what was achievable and what was beyond our budget (something we asked her to do, we needed someone to keep up in the black). She connected us to great vendors, worked around our schedule, came to every meeting I asked her to, and thought of everything we needed and all the things we didn't think of as well. She would keep us on track and make sure things got done! The day of our wedding she was wonderful! She and her assistant helped us get every photo we wanted, made sure we ate at the reception, calmed my nerves when cameras broke, had back up plan after back up plan and even at one point discussed sewing me into my dress when my hook and eye broke. Betsy was in the trenches and was fabulous every second of the day. At the end of it all looking back, both my husband, my mother and I would say that if you don't get anything else, get yourself a wedding planner. Find it somewhere in your budget! I have no doubt that without Besty it would never have come together as perfectly as it did. And when you find the money for a wedding planner, don't hire anyone else but these women! I have met all of them and they are wonderful. You couldn't go wrong with any of them. You won't only hire a wedding planner, you'll hire the person who helps you keep your sanity and be in your corner. These ladies are one in a million! Hire them!

I highly recommend using planned to perfection ... especially if you're from out of town. Betsy coordinated our wedding and was tremendous. She was very responsive to all of our questions & concerns and has a GREAT relationship with all the vendors. She cares about the end result and will do whatever it takes to make your day special. Tremendous value too.
Hannah · Married on 05/20/2017
If you are a control freak like me you might think you can do all of the wedding planning on your own. I was so against the idea of having a wedding coordinator because I wanted to be in complete control and it was my mom's idea so I instantly rejected it. THANK GOODNESS I reconsidered. After meeting with Lyndsey from Planned Perfecrion of the Bluegrass it was clear that I needed her. She mentioned several things that I had not even thought of yet for the wedding day. It was also very clear that the wedding image I had in mind would still be carried through. She wasn't going to talk me into anything I didn't want but was going to help bring my dream wedding to life! She knows the wedding business inside and out. Her eye for detail is amazing. She always has helpful suggestions if you're stuck. She also has tons of suggestions on how to save money. She knows sooooo many wedding vendors around the area and as soon as those vendors know you're working with her they go above and beyond because the reputation Lyndsey has among the wedding community. On the day of the wedding she was amazing. I did not have to worry about one thing. Everything went so smoothly and I was able to soak up the day and truely enjoy myself and my husband. I cannot imagine not having her through the entire process but especially on the day of the wedding. Can you imagine instead of getting your hair and makeup done and hanging out with your bridesmaids having to wait for the vendors to arrive and tell every one of them where stuff needs to go and decorate all morning and having to line the wedding party up and keep track of when the cake needs to be cut instead of enjoying the day you've dreamt about your entire life? Thank goodness I listened to my mom for once. Even dad said Lyndsey was the best money spent overall for wedding expenses. Not only is she an amazing wedding planner, she is also an amazing person. She is a MUST HAVE for your wedding day.

When we first started planning our wedding, we did so without supplemental help. After doing this for several weeks, we quickly learned that this could be an arduous task. Luckily, we were able to find Betsy and Planned to Perfection of the Bluegrass. After first talking to her, we knew that she was the right person to help us. She made planning a breeze. We had very busy schedules, and she was helpful in setting up meetings with vendors, despite us living further away from where our ceremony was held. She was always available to discuss and plan things no matter what and always was able to keep us on track throughout the planning process. During our big day, she coordinated all vendors and schedule for the day, and we did not worry about anything and were able to enjoy the day to the fullest without having to worry about the details, which were already handled. We can honestly say that without Besty and Planned to Perfection of the Bluegrass, that our day would not have been able to go as well as it did. She really made the process fun and was always available for a pep talk when we were overwhelmed.
If you are contemplating whether or not you need a planner like I was, just do it! You cannot go wrong with Betsy it will make your day so much more enjoyable, we did not worry about anything and were able to be with our friends and family all day. Five stars aren't enough and we would recommend her and Planned to perfection of the bluegrass for both planning and day of services without reservation.
Sue · Married on 04/21/2017
I couldn't imagine putting this wedding together without Betsy ! Living out of town made it difficult for me to plan! Betsy took care of everything and so fast. She thought of things I wouldn't have even thought of needing! She practically saved us from doing anything !
Much Love, Sue and Adam

My daughter and I knew that we wanted to use a Wedding Planner for her wedding to ensure a stress-free day and to help guide us through the planning process. Betsy of Planned to Perfection of the Bluegrass was a dream to work with!! She led us to great vendors without pressure, and allowed us space to select other vendors on our own. She navigated us through the schedule month by month with follow up and quick responses. It's clear she is well connected and respected by the Bluegrass region bridal vendors.
And, the service she provided the day of were fantastic...she thought of everything...towels for the flower bouquets, candle lighters, sand for the sparkler buckets, moving decor from the ceremony location to the reception...she was amazing! She managed and coordinated the vendors into a working team and that allowed us to sit back and enjoy the day.
Pleasant, professional, provides personal attention and care...can't say enough about this lady.
Brenna · Married on 10/16/2016
I cannot say enough great things about Planned to Perfection. We are an out of state couple so planning was a little difficult but we used Betsy as our day of coordinator and she was fabulous! One of the best decisions we made! She has so much experience, and just when you think you have everything planned out, she's there to point out a few things you may have missed or just didn't think about and had awesome ideas to add to our day - that was so appreciated! She definitely kept us on track through the planning process, and on the day of I literally had nothing to worry about. I was actually out of commission and out of contact with the world from a disaster the whole week leading up to our wedding which was a panic but Betsy had everything ready to go and was in contact with our vendors to keep them informed and on track as well - that was such a blessing! She completely ran the rehearsal which we would have had no idea how to do otherwise and on the day of she had everyone where they needed to be, had everything flow smoothly and we didn't have a worry in the world. Even a few behind the scenes aspects and issues that we hadn't planned for and I didn't know about - turns out she handled them and made our day turn out perfect! I cannot recommend having at least a day of coordinator enough, and Betsy and Planned to Perfection are perfect for the job!
KATIE · Married on 09/12/2016
Planned to Perfection was wonderful! We worked with Lyndsey and she saved our sanity! We got married at Buffalo Trace in Frankfort, but living in Chicago we didn't know much about Kentucky's wedding scene. We agreed that hiring Lyndsey to coordinate our wedding was one of our smartest moves we made. She was indispensable and we view hiring her as a huge gift to ourselves. Lyndsey was warm and kind, replied quickly and knowledgeably to all of our questions, and remained a calm, reassuring and loving presence through the entire planning process through to the day of. We were so relieved to not have to "deal with" all of the details the day of our wedding: she executed everything with intelligence, intuition (I honestly thought I'd have to answer so many questions that day and I didn't! She just knew!!) and a "cool as a cucumber" demeanor. At the end of the night, tipsy and sweaty from dancing, we asked what we needed to do to to "break down" and she said "Nothing. It's all done. We got it, go home!" And if there were ever more magical words I have not heard them. :) We loved her and highly recommend hiring Planned to Perfection of the Bluegrass so that you might have the same help and services!
Jessica · Married on 09/03/2016
Betsy and I worked together for over 15 months to make the special day come together and she delivered flawlessly! If there was a hiccup, I still don't know about it because she made sure everything ran smoothly. She provided "day of" services, but really she went above and beyond to provide more. Betsy made sure all the vendors were coordinated for time and delivery and kept our day running smoothly. A fantastic lady who provided a fantastic service. Thank you Betsy, I could not have done it without you!
Kelley · Married on 07/02/2016
Book them! I didn't think I would need a wedding planner and I've never been more wrong. Planned To Perfection can be as involved as you need them to be. They respect your budget and they are there to help you brainstorm. They've got extremely reliable vendors that they work with, and can help with specific requests and services. I'm so thankful for the team. My planner (Betsy) was incredible and my mom and I really really appreciated her help through the whole process.
Kathy · Married on 07/02/2016
Absolutely hire Planned to Perfection of the Bluegrass for help with your wedding! Betsy was an excellent help from the beginning to the end - planning, advice, making phone calls, keeping the schedule, hooking me up with fabulous vendors...and I could not have survived the day of the wedding without her help. The wedding went so smoothly and if there were problems I NEVER knew - she took care of everything so I could enjoy my daughters special day with no worries. I highly recommend the services of Planned to Perfection - it was worth every penny!
Linda · Married on 05/28/2016
Absolutely fabulous to work with!!! Couldn't have done it without Lindsey!! She made the day before and day of absolutely stress free!!
Kim · Married on 05/07/2016
Betsy was an absolutely amazing wedding planner. My now husband and I live in Washington, DC and decided to get married at Buffalo Trace. We had no contacts in the area so I immediately went searching for someone to help plan our special day. Betsy was by our side for the entire planning journey. With Betsys help, we managed to plan the entire wedding with just one trip to Kentucky. She coordinated phone screens with vendors and made appointments for our top choices while we were in town. She was very organized and helped me keep my sanity while planning a wedding with a very demanding job. The day of Betsy and Lindsey were awesome. She coordinated everything so all we had to do was show up and enjoy the day. When there was an unplanned for delay, she redid the entire timeline for the night on the spot keeping us stress free and the guests clueless anything had gone wrong. When we had a minor issue with another vendor, she stepped in and fixed it immediately. They made sure we had food and drinks throughout the night. They even brought toiletries/freshen up baskets for the bathrooms (which I had completely forgotten). At the end of the night they went so far as to load our car with presents, decorations, etc. so we didn't have to worry about it. We honestly could not have imagined planning a wedding without her by our side.
Jill · Married on 05/07/2016
Betsy was incredible! Our only regret was that we didn't book the full wedding planning package. She went above and beyond what we asked for on all accounts. We could not have been happier! Thank you, Betsy!!
Erin · Married on 12/31/2015
Planned to Perfection was absolutely wonderful. They helped me throughout the entire process making my wedding come to life. Betsy and Lyndsey were knowledgeable and provided great ideas/ suggestions along with contacts that fit my budget. They kept me organized making sure I was following the appropriate timeline for everything. I was beyond thankful for them the day of the wedding! They were so amazing, and my wedding wouldn't have been what it was without them! I would highly recommend them to anyone!

We used Planned Perfection of the Bluegrass as more of a day-of coordinator. We could not have been more happy. Lyndsey answered every e-mail quickly and gave me the amount of direction I needed. I left a lot of the smaller details up to her and she did a wonderful job. Even though it rained all day and we ended up having to have our ceremony inside our guests said that they never would have known it was our back-up plan because everything was so perfect. We would definitely recommend their services to any couple!
Elizabeth · Married on 10/10/2015
My number one advice for planning a wedding having just finished planning a wedding? Hire a day of wedding coordinator. Do not think that you or your friend can manage the day of coordination. A day of coordinator is a life saver. They'll make sure that your only concern on your wedding day is getting married.
My number one advice for Kentucky (Lexington area) brides? Hire Planned to Perfection.
Betsy with Planned to Perfection was amazing. I know there were issues that occurred on the day of my wedding, but you know what? I didn't (and don't) know about them. Betsy made sure that any issues were solved. She made sure my vision and dream became reality. Walking into my reception space was the most jaw dropping experience. She put out all of my centerpieces, set up my escort cards, guest book table, directed the florist and the baker, she solved problems big and small. She moved chairs. Honestly, Betsy moved mountains to make sure I was happy.
Planned to Perfection knows the wedding business. They know the vendors to use. They know the questions to ask. They have a timeline that they customize to your wedding. Betsy was extremely responsive even when she was on vacation! She answered phone calls, emails, and texts. Even though she was a day of coordinator, that's a misleading nomenclature. She actually met with my now husband, mom, and myself a month before the wedding in person and spent FOUR HOURS (FOUR!!!) going over every detail of our day. She took over everything the week before the wedding and touch based with all vendors. If I had a question anytime before the wedding, she was there to answer it. She was a big reason why our wedding was so amazing.
She has extremely competitive pricing for the area, but I think she's the best day of coordinator in Kentucky. Hire Planned to Perfection... you won't regret it! Money well spent in my book.
Lauren · Married on 10/03/2015
I highly recommend Lyndsey and Betsy -- our wedding was so organized and enjoyable because of them! They worked hard to ensure that our big day was absolutely perfect, and it was!
