Hi Rachel & Chris
It is we who are thankful for all that you and Chris did for us on our special day. I wasn't sure at the outset what exactly a wedding planner did but now I know. You did a lot to make the whole process and the day a piece of cake for us. So a big thank you from all of us for sweating the details and coordinating the things that needed coordinating. I personally had little to do except for my speech so I enjoyed fully the event. And Chris's words at the ceremony were simply beautiful. We could not have pulled this off as well without you. You both really did a bang up job! Congratulations & well done!
Cheers

After months of planning, it was the day of the wedding. As father of the bride I arrived at the assigned time. Rachel & Chris were already at the venue, setting things up, checking on staff and making sure everything was in its place. Each time my daughter said “what about” or the grandparents said “where do we”, Rachel already had taken care of it. The day went off without a hitch. With the help of Rachel & Chris, my daughter’s wedding was a day she (and us) will remember fondly forever.

We decided to step a little bit outside of the box for our wedding and all the decisions and stress that goes along with doing something even slightly unusual quickly became evident! But we were not going to be deterred and An English Rose is partly to thank for that!
We held our wedding at the Montreal Science Centre which, although stunning in location, is also a total blank canvas. All that was needed in order to turn that beautiful industrial space in the Old Port into somewhere warm and inviting and unique for our guests seemed impossibility and at the beginning of the process we were getting discouraged that perhaps we wouldn't be able to pull it all off!
Thankfully we met with Rachel before that got the better of us! She listened to exactly what we wanted (even with regards to budget), spent the time necessary to get to know us enough to understand our vision and then gave us all of her practical advice, wisdom from experience and a running to-do list! She contacted our vendors, got everyone organized and kept us on schedule!
We were thrilled with the 'day-of' services as well as we were able to actually enjoy our day without worrying for a second about the logistics involved. That kind of peace of mind, especially on a day as special and emotional as our wedding day was priceless for us! Thank you! Xoxo

Upon researching Wedding Planners in Montreal on the internet I came across An English Rose, Montreal Luxury Lifestyle Weddings and was impressed with the testimonials and portfolio provided on the website. After the primary meeting with Rachel (At her beautiful and conveniently located office in the Old Port) I felt that I was working with an individual who genuinely cared about my vision and concerns, and who I could trust to work together on planning this monumental event.

Rachel helped me to focus and execute my vision. She provided me with the exact amount of support I needed, always available for feedback and suggestions, yet afforded me the freedom I required in creating some less conventional elements that I felt would reflect me on my wedding day. Rachel’s vendor suggestions were impeccable, she provided us with vendors whose work was exemplar, while remaining cognizant of our budget.

Rachel and her team provided quality assistance and guidance in all stages of the planning process; from the initial consultation, to my first step down the aisle, to our entrance at the venue Rachel’s support and collaboration exceeded our expectations. Thank you An English Rose.

I just wanted to thank you all again for your hard work. You all did an amazing job, we really can't thank you enough. Honestly, if you guys hadn't been there I don't know if we would have had a wedding, let alone the incredible one that we had!

My husband and I enjoyed ourselves SO MUCH!! The venue was incredible, I still can't believe how well everything came together, it was just spectacular. I still remember the moment we drove up and I saw the final look of everything, I couldn't believe that it was my wedding!!! I remember gasping and you asking me if everything was ok and I had to explain that it was a gasp of surprise and delight!!!

Everything was so well organised, we always knew what we needed to do and by when (even though we were rarely able to do it!) and you guys really stepped up when I was faced with a family tragedy a month before our wedding that left me completely floored. I will never be able to thank you enough for that, our wedding was the little bit of happiness that we desperately needed and as I said, had you not been there to support us, I don't think I would have been able to accomplish what needed to be done.

We loved the vendors you put us in touch with. We got soooooo many compliments on every aspect of the wedding, everyone had a great time! A year and a half later our friends still reminisce about the delicious food that you helped us find and how unique it was to have lebanese food cooked outside on a giant spit :) And you made my flower dreams come true by finding me someone who could come up with the unique bouquet that I wanted!!!

I am seriously so grateful that we found you and have the best memories of our wedding. I can't think of one detail that was not absolutely perfect and I would recommend you to absolutely every bride and groom planning a wedding.

We just wanted to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to you for the immaculate organization and execution of our wedding. We were extremely pleased with the end result. The cocktail was beautiful, we were told, and the reception hall looked magnificent. The attention to detail was incredible, from the decor on the tables to the setup for the wedding favor’s; it looked flawless.
We cannot even begin to tell you how amazed and impressed our families and friends were; they cannot stop talking about the wedding and how much fun they had. The wedding party still can't believe how effortless and seamless it felt throughout the day and the evening. We will no doubt be highly recommending your services to all those we know.

I would recommend An English Rose' wedding planning services to anyone! Rachel and her team will go above and beyond to help you create the event YOU want to have - not a pre-fab wedding-in-a-box. We had a lot of crazy ideas along the way - AER met them graciously and helped us great a really memorable event. They really kept us on track throughout the whole planning process. On the day of our event, I didn't have to think about a thing - everything planned and unplanned was handled smartly by AER.

We were pleased to have Rachel from the English Rose as our wedding planner. We both come from a Mediterranean background and Rachel was very capable in grasping our culture, our religious beliefs and our values. It was an impending decision to have a wedding planner considering the fact we had close to 500 guests at our wedding and Rachel was able to handle the pressure just perfectly along with her 2 assistants Carly and Haley.
During the whole planning process, she would make sure that all elements were taken care of, following a very detailed and precise schedule that we would receive updates about on the weekly. Rita also happened to be out of town for 3 months and Rachel was very helpful with her skype meetings and several conference calls. She was present at every meeting and made sure that everything was dealt properly with every vendor contract we signed.
On the day of the wedding, it was very comforting to know Rachel had submitted a schedule to every vendor that was detailed to the minute in order to ensure that everything would go more than smooth. In Rachel we found not only an amazing wedding planner, but a friend, a confidant and sometimes even a therapist! We recommend her due to her perfectionism, her professionalism and her hard-working dedication. Our wedding day was beautiful and even more magical than we would have ever imagined it thanks to her and her team.

Sabrina and I got engaged in September 2010. At first, once the proposal was done, the next step was to start planning our wedding. We wanted to take a longer engagement that normal, thus waiting until June 2012 to tie the knot! We couldn't think of planned our wedding, who were we kidding. We turned to Rachel in fall 2010 and it was the best decision my wife and I made. Rachel brings a certain element to the table that others cannot compare to. She has the patience of a saint and is very good at executing meetings and planning for the wedding. Her suppliers are also very good and you can tell they make up the team effort, nobody missed a beat.
On the wedding day, she made us feel like kings and queens...no pressure on us!! Her wedding day planning was spot on and nothing went wrong! Only happy people..lol. Our many thanks still go out to Rachel and her team for making us the happiest bride and groom :)"

When we decided to get married in Canada we were living in England and we really didn't know where to start. Rachel at an English Rose was recommended to us and so we jumped at the chance of having somebody English to help, especially as our French was so bad.
The service Rachel and her team provided was fast, efficient and friendly. Our sudden move to Montreal meant we could deal with the wedding on a more face to face basis and I in particular thoroughly enjoyed our meetings with a good old 'cup of tea', served in china of course!
Rachel put us in touch with some fantastic vendors who not only helped pull our beautiful if not rather wet day together but some of whom will remain firm friends. Thanks for everything Rachel,

Our Wedding was planned via Skype, between London, UK and Montreal, and two meetings with Rachel. With the exception of a few small personal details Rachel took care of all of the vendors right down to the last detail. Rachel's attention and planning in the final few days was outstanding. I just turned up at the wedding venue and everything I had wanted, from the set up to the ambience was as I had imagined our wedding to be.

“We literally just got back to New Haven about 20 minutes ago--what a weekend!!!! We had an AMAZING time and our guests apparently had an amazing time as well!!! Thank you SO much again for making the day flow so perfectly--it was literally perfection from the time Kat & team arrived to our bridal suite until the last song at 2am.
Yossi was INCREDIBLE--our guests couldn't stop dancing (hence why they just decided to start the party right after the last course LOL). And Ben was on point the whole night and took care of everything. You 3 are seriously a triple threat!!”

We started working with An English Rose about 9 months prior to our wedding. Our hectic lifestyle, wedding in a different city and our very basic knowledge of wedding planning brought us to Rachel. From the first meeting we were blown away by her professionalism, assertiveness, flexibility and knowledge of the wedding industry!
As we embarked on our wedding planning journey, we were delighted with how organized Rachel was; she made sure we were on schedule and on budget as the weeks and months went by. She is an outstanding listener as she understood our needs from the get go and only presented us suitable venues and vendors. Rachel took care of all the nitty gritty details and complexities of our wedding from finding the very specific Church to the perfect napkin rings! An English Rose only works with trusted vendors and we felt comfortable with all our choices.
It was a great pleasure working with Rachel and her team. Rachel has new, trendy ideas and always thinks outside of the box. She was up to every challenge we encountered and her patience was astonishing! She took all the stress away from us and made the project a lot of fun!
The wedding day was flawless. We were not nervous and fully enjoyed our day. We didn’t worry about the scheduling or any technical aspects of the day as we knew we were in good hands! Our wedding day was perfect and, along with our guests, we had an amazing time.
We will miss Rachel! We thank everyone that worked on our wedding as it could not have been as beautiful as it was without the incredible team at An English Rose.

My husband and I had been saving and planning for our large, multicultural wedding for quite some time.
Rachel was key to the success of our much anticipated day. We had over 400 guests that attended (over 600 were invited). We had family and friends who were predominantly of Nigerian, Trinidadian, Italian and Canadian descent coming from all over North America, Europe, Africa and the Caribbean.
Rachel was instrumental in helping us stay organized, on budget, and in finding ways to incorporate cultural traditions and foods (we had Afro-Caribbean dancers, Italian appetizers, and a dinner buffet with Nigerian and Caribbean foods). And she and her assistant actually tracked all 600 guest RSVPs for us. Her support was profoundly important because planning such a large, complex, multicultural event would have been extremely tedious for us. We are both professional students (I'm a medical resident and my husband is completing is PhD), we live in Ontario, and our wedding was in Montreal.
She is a phenomenal wedding planner and her team is excellent. We strongly recommend her to anyone who needs a wedding planner! Thank you so much Rachel! Grazi! Imena! Merci!

We bought the package from an English Rose that included both vendor recommendations and day of help of set up etc. Rachel was always very nice whenever we dealt with her, and prompt to answer any questions we had.

First part was the recommendations she gave. They were a bit dissappointing. Of the 5 different categories she gave her recommendations of vendors for we only ended up using 2 of them. She wasn't able to find vendors to work within our budget but then we could do it on our own so kind of defeated the purpose of paying her to do it to begin with. She seemed to only recommend people she was already familar with (ie the two florist options presented also happened to be British). She was however always willing to go over any issues with had with the vendors and help as a go between when needed and review an contracts before they were signed.

As for the day of and any preparations she did a good job. She helped make sure we set a time table for the day and she helped set up the reception venue with our decorations. She did a good job there only two of the table numbers were inverted so people sat at the wrong tables but it wasn't a big deal.

Overall Rachel was always very professional and friendly. Answered questions etc. But for the cost she charged vs the amount of service received in return we wouldn't have gone with her again if we were starting over. Mostly due to the lack of quality vendor recommendations. Just don't feel the value was there with having paid over $2000 for the service.

An English Rose, Montreal Wedding Planner responded with the following comments:

I am so sorry that you were disappointed in one area of the services that we provided to you. We've always received such positive feedback and great testimonals from our clients that we would have loved to have received this feedback at the time so we could have discussed this with you and presented alternative options for you.

When deciding upon vendors it is always a very personal choice and we certainly work hard to present professional vendors within clients budgets, however sometimes as we go through the process the expecations have to be managed and flexible from time to time.

We do often present vendors that we know and have worked with previously as we trust their reliabilty and work ethics, however we are always excited to meet and work with new vendors which we do every year.

Having come from a Corporate / Human Resources background we are extremely open to constructive feedback and I am sad that I do not know who you are and you felt the need to place your feedback 'anonymously', as I cannot reach out to you directly which I would really like to do.

We hope you are enjoying married life, and wish you nothing but the very best.

Rachel & Christian
