Welcome and Congratulations!

Planning celebrations is not just about your wedding day; it is about the journey you take getting there. When the planning process starts to become frustrating and stressful then it is time to take a deep breath and relax. The planning should be as fun as the celebration.

Choosing to enlist a consulting service might be your first step into making the planning experience a joyful celebration all on its own. So when you are looking at different consultants, use your intuition. Trust is the most important consideration....will you be able to get along with the consultant that you have hired?!? Trusting your consultant to create your dream day so you can relax is always the goal!

If we here at Arranged by Patrice can be of service to you, we would love to help. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

I would rate Patrice a 10 plus! What an absolutely fabulous event Patrice put on for us! I am the mother of the groom and I needed to put on the wedding as the bride and groom are in the military and stationed back east. Patrice was everything; an organizer, planner, decorator, manager, hard worker, counselor (to calm and reassure this worried mom), and just a pro at what she does. The wedding was at a ranch and needed so much to make it work and Patrice provided it. She organized everything we needed; rentals, flowers, cakes, decorations, food and so many things I never would of thought of. She took us to appointments and provided different vendors to choose from. Patrice made sure the staff did everything they needed to and the event could go off without a glitch. The clean up was immaculate. Thank you so much Patrice, when my daughter gets married you will be my first contact!

My Wife and I are extremely grateful for the services Patrice provided us. Our wedding was incredible. Due to her extensive experience, she helped us in ways we could never have imagined. Every detail we thought of, or missed, was expertly cared for and dealt with, giving my Bride and I time to be with our guests during the ceremony, dinner, and reception. A fun time was had by all. Thank you forever Patrice!

Whimsical, charming and unforgettable, are just a few words to describe the magic that was created by Patrice on our wedding day early October. From our first conversation I knew that she was going to provide quality service, excellence, and professionalism. She was warm and friendly and I had grown to love her optimism and genuineness right from the beginning. Living out of state, I only imagined what a pain it was going to be to plan a wedding, but with the help of Patrice, our expectations were surpassed. She even went beyond her call of duty the day of our wedding and assisted in the kitchen to assure nothing less than perfectionism. She is down to earth and open to listening to the desires of her clients. She also has various contacts for a variety of venues which she highly recommends, catered to your personal preferences and requests. She works very well under pressure and returns calls and emails within 24 hours. She is fabulous and we highly recommend her and will be looking to hire her again if and when we plan our next big event!

Thanks to Patrice, our wedding day went off without a hitch. I don't remember much of the day due to all of the emotion, but i do remember not having to worry about a thing. Patrice was extremely professional and very easy to work with. In addition, not only did Patrice have amazing ideas of her own but she catered to the things which were most important to us. I couldn't have asked for a better wedding day and i can easily attribute this to the efforts of Patrice. Moreover, I would recommend Patrice for anyone looking to have their perfect day.

Patrice is her weight in gold, and then some. We hired her right from start and everything went so smoothly. Patrice kept us track with our budget and our timelines. She has worked with most of the vendors and venues in the area which was a plus. She arranged everything! All we had to was show up and make the big decisions. Patrice handled all the details on our wedding day which was a relief to us and our family. Our wedding was beautiful and so much more than we could have ever hoped for. We couldn’t have done it without her. We recommend her to anyone looking for an awesome wedding coordinator who truly cares about you and the details of your special day. Thank you so, so much Patrice.

We couldn’t have done it without her. We recommend her to anyone looking for an awesome wedding coordinator who truly cares about you and the details of your special day. Thank you so, so much Patrice. Read less

Patrice is like a wedding magician! She was able to get us deals with all the best vendors. Not only did she understand our wedding vision, but she dove in head first, making perfect recommendations. Since we live on the east coast, we were only able to travel to Paso once before the wedding to meet with vendors, etc. She scheduled everything so we were able to enjoy our vacation. There is NOTHING that Patrice does not have answers for! She is worth her weight in gold. Our wedding was absolutely perfect. I truly cannot say enough about her. Planning a destination wedding is difficult; with Patrice, there wasnt a single bump in the road!

I do not even know where to begin to describe how grateful I am to Patrice at Arranged by Patrice for everything she did to ensure that my wedding was perfectly orchestrated. Even though I consider myself a very organized and detail oriented person, I could have never pulled off such a great event on my own. While I was able to plan the wedding initially myself, I had no idea how many small details needed to be considered towards the end of the planning process. Patrice stepped right in and streamlined the final stages of the wedding planning process which took a HUGE weight off my shoulders. Also, I was so impressed on the day of the wedding with the way everything ran so smoothly. There was no way I could have done what needed to be done that day without Patrice's help. For example, I would not have had the time to ensure that all the vendors were set up and doing what needed to be done when I was supposed to be getting ready for the wedding. On that very special day, I left the details in Patrice's hands and did not have to worry about one thing except enjoying myself. Since the wedding, I have received compliments from almost all of my guests who have said they have never seen such a well planned event before. I would highly recommend Arranged by Patrice!

Patrice was absolutely wonderful! She was extremely organized and made everything go SO smoothly so we didn't have to worry about a thing on our big day (and the few weeks beforehand). She is also very fun and relaxed, putting everyone at ease while she did the hard work behind the scenes. She really cares and knows her stuff. I would highly recommend Patrice for anyone looking for a coordinator. Thanks, Patrice!

Patrice's services were definitely top notch. She was such an integral part of making my daughter's wedding absolutely perfect. She knows all the vendors in the area and works very well with them. She scheduled the entire wedding day for us-we didn't need to worry about anything. Prior to the wedding, she arranged for our cake tastings, menu tastings, meetings with the florist, DJ, etc. She came with us to these meetings-I could tell she had a good rapport with them--it is nice to have an experienced person along. Also, they all want to do their best while amongst their colleagues. Patrice has helped coordinate hundreds of weddings while this was our first. We could not have done it without her. She is so very sincere and absolutely loves what she does.

When we first started our wedding planning process, we spoke with a perspective planner who said we needed a miracle worker- Patrice was just that. Not only did she pull off our wedding without a hitch, it was absolutely beautiful, exceeded our expectations and within our budget! She listened to our vision and kept us on track even when we lost sight of all. Patrice was truly our voice of reason and provided the assurance that we needed that everything was going to work out. Her relationship with our vendors provided much comfort in knowing that our voice was heard and that we received the best service. With Patrice we not only received an exceptional wedding planner, we discovered a friend.

Planning a destination wedding can be stressful and time consuming however Patrice saved us on both accounts. She helped with design, menu selection, interfaced with vendors, and kept us on track with all the little details that are easily forgotten during planning. Her expertise meant not having to make repeated costly trips from Los Angeles thus saving us time and money! Patrice's fees are reasonable for the services she provides, but more importantly is the value of having someone who who truly wants to make that special day a stress free, fun event.

Patrice is a fabulous wedding coordinator!! From the beginning I was very impressed with how she tuned into what we wanted and really worked to that end. When I found a dress online, but then could not find a way to get it ordered, Patrice did not give up until she made it happen! We also had a very unusual color scheme and Patrice really helped me make the most of it. Her flower and linen suggestions were really helpful. She did a great job of setting up the reception and kept everything running smoothly so that we could just enjoy our evening. Her vendors were professional, friendly and delivered!! All in all a great experience.

She was super organized, had lots of creative ideas and had everything ready for us to make decisions on whenever we would come to visit her. She made our wedding day, itself, a breeze.

Patrice was a dream to deal with! She was our "day-of" coordinator, but she really went above and beyond the scope of our contract. We met in person and via phone several times, which was extremely helpful since ours was an out-of-town wedding. She also had her seamstress sew a runner for us last minute, which looked amazing. I really would not have changed a thing about our wedding, and much of that is thanks to Patrice! She kept me calm and grounded, which allowed me and my husband to enjoy our day.

We got married at Cayucos Creek Barn - a beautiful location on the central coast that did not have any restrictions on what vendors we could use. This was great as it allowed us to save money and Patrice directed us to an amazing team!! Our photographer, florist and Spanish guitar player were unbelievable! Patrice also was key in negotiating prices with and getting the best from our caterer. We wanted Spanish-inspired cuisine and when we were not over-the-moon happy with our first tasting, she ensured that we had another tasting and communicated our tastes perfectly to the catering company. The food turned out exactly like we envisioned on our wedding day (even the octopus!) The week before the wedding Patrice was with us every step of the way and went the extra mile to make our dream day come true. Never in my wildest dreams did I think the day would be as magical, beautiful and run as smoothly as it did.

We hired Patrice as a day-of, plus a little for our wedding. We lived in San Diego, so trying to coordinate a large wedding from a distance would have been a challenge. Patrice was really great about making time to meet with us when we were able to make it up, run through all our plans and ideas. She was really great about coordinating with our vendors and helping to make some difficult to execute design ideas come to fruition! The day of the wedding went flawlessly (in my eyes:-))! Patrice made sure all the decorations went up as we had discussed and anything that didn't work last minute, she fixed perfectly. It was so nice to have someone there I could trust to make the day run smoothly. Plus, she is a great person to be around! Thank you Patrice!!!!

She basically assaulted me and my maid of honor at rehearsal. I was walking arm in arm with my 69 year old father to start rehearsal when she grabbed me by the arm and yanked me (in the same direction we were walking mind you) about 3 feet almost knocking me down into the gravel and then snapped, "no one ever listens to me!!" Good thing I don't bruise easily because my wedding gown was strapless. She was rude to me the day before and the day of my wedding. From what I heard from my wedding party she was rude to them as well. She was drinking at my wedding. AND cut the top tier of my cake when I specifically told her not to on multiple occasions (we had a ton of cut up cake left over, and did we get any to take with us after the wedding? No.) and then when I asked my new husband to speak with her about it (because I was way to upset to do it myself) she proceeded to tell him how hard she had worked on our wedding and blah blah blah instead of simply taking care of the mess she created. Oh ya, and she was rude to my relatives. Not to mention the looks on my other vendors faces when we told them who our planner was... TWO of them even went as far as to tell us she, and I quote "is crazy." And many of them never received phone calls from her after she had said she would call.
Something tells me she doesn't tell very many of her brides she is listed on wedding wire, the only reason I know is because she walked up to me at my wedding, with a very full glass of wine, proceeded to finish it ALL and then ask for a good review, and that she would send me a link to weddingwire.com.
Well Patrice, here is your review. I just hope I get all of my things back in good shape.

Arranged by Patrice - Wedding Ideas Now responded with the following comments:

Oh my, this is quite a review. I am hoping that these thoughts have not spoiled your image of your wedding day which was so magical.

I am not really sure how to respond to this as it honestly seems so contrary as to what happened, but here is my attempt:

Of course I didn't assault anyone, especially the bride. At the rehearsal I usually do not get listened to and normally joke about it. I am never harsh to anyone and never yell. . .it is just not in my nature. I do take my wedding parties by the arm and move them into place and that is exactly what I did but never in a way that hurts anyone.

YES, YES I always have a glass of wine at the end of an event (depending on the couple and their philosophy). I am careful to make sure everything is done and all that is left is picking up afterwards before I indulge. And that is exactly where we were when I spoke to Leslie with the glass of wine in my hand at the end of the evening.

As to the cake, yes I did cut the top of the cake. It was a judgement call because the baker had forgotten to bring the sheet cake. Leslie had wanted to make sure everyone had cake so that is all I was thinking at the time. Afterwards when I saw how upset Leslie was about the cake, I called the baker and she recreated the top of the cake exactly the way it was and it was waiting for her on her return from her honeymoon.

I tell everyone about my review site here on Wedding Wire because it is a great way for other couples to see what others are saying about me. Looks like it backfired on me this time!

Leslie, I hope that you can get past this unpleasantness and go on to remembering your day as the beautiful event it was.

Good luck to both you and Ben.

Patrice
