Best Decision We Ever Made Was Hiring Lauren
At first, we weren't going to hire a wedding coordinator. Thank GOODNESS we did. Hiring Lauren was the best decision we could have made. She put together a detailed timeline of the day an didn't miss a single beat. Her team is fantastic. The attention to detail was so impressive. Planning a wedding can be so stressful, but the stress was completely lifted once we hired Lauren. Onsite, her team was so professional, assertive with vendors when necessary - in which we SO appreciated. Most importantly, the team is kind. I strongly recommend Something Blu - promise you will be in good hands.Sent on 05/09/2019

Working with Tara was an absolute dream. We collaborated to help bring to life the beautiful visions of one of her brides early this September. As a vendor working with an event planner does not always come easy. However, Tara was quick, responsive, detailed, and organized. I cannot wait to collaborate with her again!! To all the future couples looking for a planner, you'd be lucky to put your special day into Tara's hands! :)Sent on 09/26/2017
Something Blu Weddings + Events's reply:Chelsea, thank you so much for your kind words and as always it was fantastic working with you and the Beautiful Blooms Team as well.

Absolutely integral to our wedding day success!
SomethingBlu was absolutely essential for our wedding day. Having Erin and Maria as the Day of Coordinators allowed me to sit back as the bride and enjoy the evening. They helped me create the wedding day timeline and ensured that the timeline was provided to our vendors. They had everything covered the day of and even helped me wipe our a dirt stain on my dress. Their upbeat energy and attention to detail was amazing. I highly recommend them to anyone!Sent on 09/14/2019

A m a z i n g!
My now husband and I decided last minute to get a planner because of all the little essentials you don’t think about and need help with! We were SO glad to have made that decision, Erin made our day a flawless dream, she did everything the month leading up until our big day!! If there were any issues, she handled it without us even knowing! The Day of our wedding went absolutely flawless from beginning to end. Erin & her assistant Christine were really amazing! Soooo professional and so organized it made everything super easy for me the bride and my husband. Not only was Erin super kind and great at what she does but we really hit it off and I feel like I gained a friend forever! Thank you Something Blue for an awesome experience!Sent on 06/07/2019

Marlane · Married on 09/02/2018
We used Something Blu for Day Of Services. I am mother of the bride, my daughter lives in NY and the wedding was in Philadelphia. Tara was wonderful, very organized, professional, unobstrusive and extremely kind and reassuring. The day of went smoother than we expected largely due to her efforts in communicating with the vendors. I have no reservations in highly recommending this organization as Wedding Planners.Sent on 09/08/2018

Tara and her team were amazing through and through!!!!!!

You are amazing at what you do and the peace of mind you granted us was totally priceless. It was a dream working with you!Sent on 12/19/2018

This was probably the best money I've spent in the whole wedding process. Tara is the BEST! She's like a little buddah angel that makes your wedding go the smoothest it can be. I wasn't stressed having her and her team around and I had a large bilingual wedding. They are professional, attentive to detail without overwhelming you, andSent on 06/12/2018

Something Blu Weddings + Events is a very honest and professional wedding planner. I have worked with them on several occasions and they are tops! Lauren is very easy to work with. I give them my highest recommendations.Sent on 06/20/2018
Stephanie · Married on 05/19/2018
Lauren was great. I hired her as a day-of-coordinator for my wedding and she was incredibly helpful. She made sure that everything ran smoothly with my vendors, taking over communication with them in the days before the wedding and making sure set-up went according to plan. Throughout the night she kept me fed and watered and was able to take important items off my hands (e.g. my very expensive gold bracelets that were too delicate to wear all night long) and back to our room for us (e.g. cards, gifts, extra food) so that we didn't have a single worry all night long. She was also able to handle the one mishap we had at our wedding (every wedding has one, so hire a coordinator so you aren't the person dealing with the problem when it comes!) - one of our shuttles never showed and left guests stranded at the ceremony location for a short time before Lauren was able to work out a solution, all the while I was able to keep socializing with guests and acting as hostess and enjoying myself since I knew the problem was being taken care of.Sent on 06/04/2018
Before the wedding, Lauren was also very helpful. She
created a comprehensive timeline of the night, which she shared with all our other vendors, and which she able to adapt on the fly when things went wrong (with some guests arrival to the reception site being delayed, including the bride's parents!) so that the guests didn't notice anything was amiss and the evening went as perfectly as if that had been the original plan all along. Lauren and her two assistants were also just a pleasure to be around - so sweet and calm - the perfect presence to add to your wedding ensemble to keep you grounded, centered, and stress-free both before, during, and after the big day.
Kim · Married on 05/19/2018
I can't give enough praise to Tara and Something Blu for making our wedding the perfect day. I'd give 10 stars if I could! I am one of those clients that was undoubtedly so hard to work with. I had no idea what I wanted for anything! I didn't know our color scheme, which vendors we were using, timing, flowers, you name it! Tara worked with me tirelessly to put all of the pieces together. She let me know which decisions had to be made immediately and which ones I could figure out along the way. I was so stressed leading up to the wedding and wondering how I was going to make sure everything was running smoothly. Well, I literally did nothing on my wedding day except have fun and enjoy the day with my new husband! My husband and I couldn't believe how seamless the day was, especially having to deal with multiple locations and day-of changes due to rain! Tara asked what was important to us for the day and made sure to make those things happen. Worth every single penny and more! Tara and the team went above and beyond, exceeded our expectations, and made our wedding a day we won't forget! Thank you thank you thank you!Sent on 06/20/2018
Something Blu Weddings + Events's reply:Kim - what are you talking about, you were a pleasure to work with!! We thoroughly enjoyed being part of your wedding team! It was a fantastic day, the rain was kept at bay and everything went off without a hitch - perfection! Congratulations to you and Reed again!
Shannon · Married on 05/04/2018
Hiring Tara and her team was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day. I had a lot of DIY and non-traditional elements and Tara handled them with ease. Her organization and communication kept me on track with my own projects, and she was so helpful and flexible when those last-minute changes would come up. On the day of the wedding, Tara was incredible -- she handled things I would have never even though of and was prepared for any circumstance! She was so on top of everything that I was actually able to relax and enjoy my wedding day. When I started planning my wedding, I didn't think I would need to hire a day-of coordinator, but after working with Tara and her team, I can't imagine my big day without them!Sent on 05/13/2018
Something Blu Weddings + Events's reply:Shannon - we were beyond thrilled to lend a helping hand for your and Zack's big day and I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed yourself. It was such an incredible day and I hope you got some downtime on Saturday :). Thank you again and very best wishes to you!!
Mariana · Married on 04/13/2018
Hiring Tara from Something Blu was the best decision we made! Our wedding was very DIY, non-traditional, but we wanted someone to handle all of the day-of details, and Tara took care of everything. She managed all of the vendors, checked in with us all day, had every possible item we would need. We could ask her to help us with anything, and she would do it with a smile. It was so worth it to have her there, and I would recommend Something Blu and Tara to everyone!Sent on 05/07/2018
Something Blu Weddings + Events's reply:Mariana - thank you so much, the pleasure was all mine! All of your DIY elements were gorgeous and I was thrilled to be a party of your and Toby's special day - and what a day it was, so beautiful!! I hope you had a wonderful Honeymoon! Congratulations and best wishes again!
Jillian · Married on 10/28/2017
Hiring Something Blu Wedding + Events as my day-of-coordinator was honestly one of the best decisions that I made throughout the wedding planning process. I think that the title "day-of-coordinator" is a bit deceiving because I received so much more than just a day-of service from this company.Sent on 11/11/2017
I started working with Tara as my main day-of-coordinator. I then started working with Sarah, as Tara was expecting her second child, and the transition was incredibly seamless. Both Tara and Sarah attended the venue walk through to make sure everyone was on the same page in terms of setting up the space. Leading up to the wedding, Sarah was so responsive to both email and text - she was very organized and ready to answer any question. Sarah put together a wedding timeline which was shared with all of my vendors. Kim and Sheri were also at the wedding to help Sarah and both were so great! Together, all three made the day go so smoothly.
My wedding day was perfect, and it would not have been the same without the help of Something Blu Wedding + Events. My entire family was able to relax and enjoy the day, and I could not have asked for more. I didn't have a thing to worry about on my wedding day as I knew Sarah and her team had taken care of everything.
If you are on the fence about hiring a day-of-coordinator, I highly recommend it. And even more so, I strongly suggest hiring Something Blu Wedding + Events! Thank you Sarah and Tara for all of your amazing help!

I have nothing but high praises for Tara and the team at Something Blu. Being the mother of the bride I have to admit that I hesitated when my daughter wanted to hire a wedding planner. After meeting with Tara it was clear that there was a lot more to planning a wedding than my experiences 35 years ago. She was very organized and always available to answer questions even though she was hired as the day of coordinator! Even when Tara informed us that she was expecting another child, due the month of the wedding, (congratulations to Tara and her family) she arranged for us to meet with Sarah, another member of the team. Sarah was also readily available to answer those questions as the wedding approached and made sure all the vendors were ready to go. And the timeline! How great it was knowing where everyone should be and at what time! Kim and Sheri were also helpful with the rehearsal and reception. When the wedding was over it was so nice that Sarah and Kim had everything packed up and ready for us to take home. After a night of celebrating it was nice not to have to run around making sure we had everything. Thank you so much Something Blu, I thoroughly enjoyed my daughter’s wedding and it was due in part to all of your help!Sent on 11/09/2017

The staff at Something Blu was incredible!! I knew I was in great hands with Tara from our first call. She was on the ball, responsive, gave the best advice – just a pro!

Highly recommend using Something Blu if you are looking for day of coordination for your wedding! Leading up to the wedding Tara and Sarah were amazing! They were so organized and were genuinely interested in the details of the wedding, and making sure everything would flow and be exactly what we wanted. They took on the role of communicating with all vendors and finalizing all details to ensure that the months and weeks leading up to the wedding were as stress free as possible. On the day of the wedding they made it so we didn't have to worry about one thing from beginning to end. They helped to make the whole day perfect!Sent on 10/30/2017

5 stars isn't enough to say how amazing working with Tara , Sarah, and Something Blue was! I am an event planner for my profession, and I was very concerned I would slip into work mode on my wedding day instead of being the bride and enjoying every moment. Tara was our Day-Of-Coordinator, and it was the best decision I made in the whole wedding planning process. Leading up to the wedding, we did a walk through of the venue to talk through the day of schedule. We then kept in communication in the weeks leading up to the wedding - confirming details and she offered great advice when I had questions. Having her at my rehearsal was wonderful - she made sure everyone understood what they were supposed to do and where they were supposed to be. The day of the wedding, I had no worries when it came to logistics. Tara made sure all the vendors were on time, that the bridal party was where they were supposed to be and her team set up at the reception. I felt no stress on my wedding day, and was able to live in the moment, instead of worrying about what needed to be done. Tara also has the most amazing emergency kit - Sarah helped get a stain off my dress after pictures. They also helped bustle my dress and keep adjusting it when it fell out. They also packed everything up when the party ended, and placed it in the designated car. I am so thankful for the piece of mind they gave me on my wedding day, and cannot recommend them enough!!Sent on 07/03/2017
Something Blu Weddings + Events's reply:Melissa, the pleasure was all ours! We were honored to be a part of your, Shawn and Ava's amazing day!

Lindsey · Married on 04/29/2017
Lauren was our day-of coordinator, and I could not have been happier with her and her team's service!! I spoke with a few coordinators and many of them offer similar services, so it came down to personality and trust for me. I made the right choice! In the month leading up to the wedding, we met with her at our venue and she was so well-prepared. She also replied quickly to my emails. A couple weeks before the wedding she really started picking up communication with all the vendors and the venue, and I felt like I was able to relax a little bit because I knew she had things under control.Sent on 05/06/2017
On the day of the wedding, Lauren and her assistants worked seamlessly with the venue staff and vendors, getting decor set up, handling shuttle bus logistics at our hotel, and helping make sure we adjusted our schedule once we were running behind. I was so glad that my parents and bridal party could relax and enjoy themselves during the wedding because we knew that Something Blu was on top of any issues that might arise. I highly recommend having a day-of coordinator (even at a venue that provides event management) and definitely recommend choosing Something Blu.
Laurie · Married on 04/29/2017
When our daughter suggested hiring a "day-of coordinator" for her wedding, we thought it was a fabulous idea. Even though the venue had an event manager on-site, the idea of having someone else there who was solely focused on our needs was of utmost importance. After meeting Lauren the first time, we were all so thrilled with that decision. She was so professional, organized, detailed, communicative...we immediately had the confidence that she would be an asset and fulfill her role thoroughly. She and our daughter talked often during the month prior to the event, and along with her two assistants, Lauren helped make our daughter's wedding a perfect day! I would definitely recommend her. And if I had another wedding to plan, Something Blu would be the first call I would make!!Sent on 05/08/2017
