  • Ashley is wonderful to work with. Her creative style and charming personality gives one a sense of knowing that you've chosen the right person to do the job. She truly has a gift of making a person's special day, "uniquely" theirs.

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? Ashley was very attentive and basically took care of EVERYTHING the day of our wedding. It made things so relaxing and stressfree. I had so many ideas and Ashley helped me narrow them down to best create a ceremony and reception that truly represented us.
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? Ashley has a lot of experience and tips dealing with all types of vendors. She never hesitated to play "the bad guy" if we didn't agree with something another vendor suggested. She understood our budget, our vision, and what we wanted and helped us find the right vendors to suit or needs. She also had tons of suggestions and ideas for the design elements and little amenities we had at the reception.
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? I would say the main thing that helped me to stay sane was having Ashley's advice. I could email or call he anytime with my ideas and she would help me w/ decisions.
  • Value of a wedding planner? For the our wedding venue, the value of a wedding planner was a neccessity! We did interview several planners and are VERY HAPPY that we chose Ashley. If we went with someone else, I just know that the day wouldn't have been as great and relaxing as it was. I would recommend Creative Events by Ashley to anyone planning a wedding!!

Review: Drop everything you are doing and call Ashley now!

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? I am the first to admit I was the least-informed bride on earth. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my flowers, table settings, place cards, cake, makeup, hair ... Ashley turned my giant question-mark of a wedding into the most gorgeous, intimate event - and she did it seamlessly. Ashley is the best-organized and most well-connected wedding planner out there - she knew exactly where to go for every one of my questions - from artistic fall flowers to last-minute dress dry cleaning on a budget. Although I was 3,500 miles away (I live in New York and planned a wine country wedding), Ashley was with me every step of the way. Best of all - she quickly became more than my wedding planner - Ashley definitely feels like a friend. Now that I'm married, I am doing to miss talking to Ashley every day!
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? Every single gorgeous detail of my wedding was planned by Ashley - she handmade place cards for the tables, printed lovely menus, helped design our program, arranged the flower centerpieces on our tables and in the church (saving us hundreds of dollars) ... Ashley will definitely make sure you have the most amazing event of your life, no matter how few ideas you bring to the table - I relied on her for everything, and she delivered every time.
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? The best thing about Ashley is that she listens - I could (and did!) call her with every single wedding-related stress, and she always took time out to lend an ear or offer advice. Also - I did not pick an easy venue, and Ashley absorbed all of the hassle and stress from the coordinators at the reception site. She went to bat for me time and again, and I literally do not know what I would have done without her.
  • Value of a wedding planner? The cost savings were HUGE - but more than that - Ashley made my wedding the most perfect day of my life. Also - I truly feel like Ashley will be a part of my life for years to come (I will definitely be sending her pictures of our first anniversary celebration, and our kids!). She was such a joy to work with.

Review: Can I keep her?

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? Ashley's priority on my wedding day was for me to just enjoy it. I knew leading up to my wedding day that everything would be taken care of and I wouldn't have to worry about anything. Everytime we met she made a point to tell me that it was her job to make sure that everything goes smoothly. And anytime I had a concern about something, she took care of it immediately. She's a little OCD about stuff, but in a good way! My day was perfect and it wouldn't have been without her!
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? She has a ton of connections with vendors and knows a lot of great ways to save money. We had a budget and she was so great about coming up with ideas to stay within our budget. She introduced me to an amazing seamstress who custom made our bridesmaid dresses for dirt cheap and altered my wedding dress for almost nothing. We went shopping together at cool discount stores and got great stuff for the big day. She had a great way of looking at things and together we came up with a beautiful setup for our wedding day.
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? Well... I had to do nothing! So many times Ashley would ask for a list of something and I'd offer to do more and she said she'd take care of it and did. She ALWAYS offered to contact vendors for me and do the communication so that I didn't have to worry about it. AND she was ready to fight to the bone to get what we wanted!! I've heard so many stories about how brides don't enjoy their wedding because they spent their time worrying about schedules and setups. I didn't have an ounce of stress on my day. I enjoyed spending the time with my husband, family and friends.
  • Value of a wedding planner? I went to a bridal fair with my mom because I was so lost in where to get started in planning my wedding. Ashley was there and asked if I had a coordinator. I almost laughed because, to me, the thought of a coordinator was crazy and I figured it would be a waste of a huge amount of money. I was so wrong. Ashley came for a free consultation and was so friendly and open to doing whatever she could to help me. Her services were extremely affordable and SO worth it. Ladies, if you're thinking about planning a wedding yourself, DON'T DO IT! Save yourself time, stress and money and call Ashley. Seriously.

Review: Hire her - you will NOT regret it!

  • How did wedding planner make your day special? I was able to be present to experience my wedding day 100% because if Ashley. Many say that brides are too stressed to enjoy their wedding day; not so for me. I had a fantastic time thanks to Ashely, I knew everything was in good hands and that if any problems arose, she'd be on it before it was even an issue. She was professional, calm, and together throughout the whole thing.
  • Useful suggestions, tips, wisdom your planner offered? She is truly creative (as her business title says) and she had good ideas for making things look great and flow smoothly.
  • How the planner reduced your inner-Bridezilla? I did a lot of the planning and coordinating myself so I was pretty overwhelmed. Ashley took a lot of the details, like making escort cards and communicating with vendors, off my hands. What a lifesaver! I also talked through some things through with her that I was most stressed about and either got a good suggestion for how to make things simpler but still exactly how I wanted them, or when I could let things go from my over-filled plate.
  • Value of a wedding planner? Invaluable!! I hired Ashley initially as a Day-of-Coordinator (something that I tell every bride is a must - it's the only way as far as I'm concerned, to be able to truly enjoy your day), but ended up using her for more than that. She was worth every penny and more! When I read these types of reviews I often wonder if they're for real - did a real bride with no vested interest write this? I realize that you still have not reason to trust that this is for real other than I can tell you that I meant every word I wrote and could write even more accolades. I have nothing to gain other than knowing another bride might get to enjoy her day as much as I enjoyed mine as a result of working with Ashely.
