Review: A stress free Big Day!

  • My wedding planner was there for me every step of the way. And when, I say "every," I really mean, "EVERY." I think one of my biggest worries prior to the wedding was being on time with the schedule, especially since we started planning the wedding a year in advance. Since it was my big day, I was excited yet still stressed out. I don't think I would have been on schedule for much of the day if she wasn't there guiding me. She also gave me many suggestions and tips during the planning stages to prevent a stressful day.
  • I think that the biggest word of advice from the planner is to delegate your tasks. I naturally want to do most of the preparation and the set up myself, but she advised to do "nothing." The wedding itself can be stressful enough even with the help of all the groomsmen and friends I had helping me that day. The task of getting married is a big one.
  • My bride and I were "zilla-free," because our planner made sure that everyone who was helping out had the master timeline. She also made sure that the timelines were custom-made for each vendor and helper, so as to not overwhelm others with things they didn't need to know. She made a contact list so that everyone had each others information to communicate well. These were all details that our planner took care of that I wouldn't have thought of or wouldn't have had time to do.
  • When my wife and I first got engaged, we were questioning whether or not it was necessary to have a wedding planner. I think every bride and groom who are ambitious go-getters all think that way. Now that the wedding is done, I really couldn't image not having my planner guiding us through our plans. The value of a wedding planner is like the value of an architect to build your home. Even though you have a vision for what you want it to look like, you need a planner to help facilitate it. I haven't been married before and I don't plan to ever again, so of course I can't really gain ay experience with weddings and get better at it. The bride and broom need a designated planner outside of the family with fresh perspectives and no biases.

Review: Worth every penny!

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? Tomi and her team were organized, punctual, professional and calm. She took care of every single detail and even wow'd all of my vendors. I was able to relax while Tomi and her team took care of the hundred different tasks and details I gave her. My guests said over and over again how beautiful the wedding was, how I must have spent days executing all the tiny details. It was all because of Tomi and her team. Tomi was always within reach, whether it was a call, text or email. She was there helping me with everything. From visiting venues, telling me about fire codes etc... Where to get certain wedding decorations. What to expect. What should be on vendor contracts. I could go on and on.
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? Tomi was a walking wedding encyclopedia. She made me feel good about all the decisions I made while planning the wedding. Biggest tip : "relax and enjoy your day, we'll take care of everything" So very true! esp since I'm someone who likes to be in control
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? I was a bridezilla the WHOLE time. I'm a diva. But Tomi is so calm. I called her crying and yelling but she always calmed me down. Planning a wedding with a very busy wedding party and planning it out of your own wallet is stressful. I enjoyed every part of the process because Tomi made it easier. I miss wedding planning. I really really miss it.
  • Value of a wedding planner? I had Tomi thru my whole wedding planning process. She saved me so much money, saved me so much time, saved my sanity! Most importantly, on the day of the wedding, all I did was wake up and enjoyed the whole day with my loved ones. None of my guests had "duties or jobs" (besides the wedding party & ushers who participated in the wedding) Some people try to save money by asking friends and family to do stuff for them but most of the time they do it wrong or don't get to enjoy themselves. So many of my married friends agreed with me that I was smart to get a wedding coordinator. They all didn't, and they all told me they were stressed out the whole time worrying about stuff. I paid tens of thousands of dollars for my wedding, I better enjoy it! And a wedding coordinator was the most important expense yet it was one of the less expensive vendors. If you want to enjoy your wedding, hire Tomi and her team. You'll forget about everything because Tomi will take care of it.

Review: Icing on the Cake!

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? First off, Tomi is the calm in the hectic storm of wedding planning. She was so composed, gentle, kind, and collected throughout my and my husband's wedding process. Her input and professionalism assured me every bit of the way that I was going to have a stress-free celebration, and I did! Tomi is extremely organized, detailed, and friendly, which made her very easy to work with. In addition, she was always readily available to talk plans and came through with last-minute changes. (I'm talking at the eleventh hour, people!) If you want someone who will listen to what you dream of your perfect day to be and see that dream come into fruition stress-free, Tomi is the perfect fit for your wedding plans!
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? 1) "Take a breather, and let me take care of the rest." 2) "Enjoy the wedding process. It's going to be amazing!" 3) She had a Tide stain-remover marker on hand, which saved my dress from the chocolate ice cream smudge on it!
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? Tomi remained a calm and sweet demeanor throughout the process. What is more, this WPG (wedding planner genius) also let me vent when I needed to verbalize my crazy stresses. She also gave helpful input when I was stuck about figuring out wedding details.
  • Value of a wedding planner? I don't know how I would've survived my day without Tomi. The morning of, there were still loose ends to tie, but I knew that Tomi would come through to save the day. And she did! Everything was extremely organized and went beyond my expectations! What is more, I had 11 student volunteers at the wedding, and Tomi handled the junior high crowd with amazing leadership and confidence. My kids enjoyed themselves under her leadership so much so that they enjoyed working and stated that "task didn't feel laborious and boring."

Review: Wedding exceeded all my expectations!

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? She was definitely able to lift the stress off of me and allow me to sit back, relax, and enjoy my beautiful wedding day. I felt confident enough in her abilities to hand over everything to her. Everything went as planned with no glitches!
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? Her emergency kit was a life-saver when I spilled food on my dress! Her creative skills were amazing and really came in handy while planning the wedding since creativity is not my strongest department. She was able to take my modest ideas and turn them into something spectacular.
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? I think I would have been way more on edge and anxious if she wasn't there making sure everything was going according to plan. Stressing out about little things like clean-up and making sure everything is executed in a timely manner can take its toll. But I was able to put all those worries aside.
  • Value of a wedding planner? I would most definitely suggest all future brides to consider hiring a wedding planner. Planning a wedding is hard work and many of us just don't have the time or the resources to do this in a timely manner. I know if I would have planned it on my own I wouldn't have known where to begin.
