I would highly recommend Helping Hand Parties! The attention to detail is obvious in everything Erica does. Erica is an excellent listener and helps you put your ideas together in a organized fashion. We had a large wedding event that required lots of coordination. Erica met with us and prepared a timeline of every single detail. She takes nothing for granted and will ensure that everything within your control is executed well and everything stays on time. Hiring Erica was the best wedding decision we made. She loves her job and it shows.

Erica was professional and very wonderful to work with. She did her job and kept us on track with our "to do" lists. The day of the wedding she was exceptional. I am the mother of the bride and was able to enjoy my daughter's day and not get stressed about things. I was not running around checking to see if vendors had shown up and if the tables were done! I highly recommend you hire a wedding planner if you haven't planned on it. She was well worth every penny and then some!

Erica at Helping Hand Parties helped me plan my daughter's wedding in August 2014. She was extremely helpful from the very beginning when we did not know where to start, providing a check list, examples, vendor suggestions when needed and guidance. Erica was patient and professional. On the day of the wedding she and her assistant filled in to help out without another vendor who had a family emergency. She thought of details I would not have even considered. Our day went so smoothly and I was able to enjoy time with family and friends.We would highly recommend Erica Thimsen at Helping Hand Parties.

Awesome, professional, kind, and a joy to work with. I would never been able to give my daughter such a beautiful wedding without Erica's expertise.

Working with Erica of Helping Hand Parties & Weddings was one of the best decisions we could have made for our wedding, and we would choose her again in a heartbeat! Erica is very knowledgeable and detail-oriented, she will be your advocate and liaison to other vendors, and she will do it all with a smile and calm demeanor! Whatever you want for your wedding, Erica will help make it happen! She had a lot of great ideas and made sure every detail was considered in advance (both decorative and logistical), so that we could all relax and enjoy our wedding with peace of mind! Erica was very responsive and flexible - always returning calls or emails right away (I sometimes wondered when she slept, based on the various timestamps of her emails! :)) When we decided to go a different direction with our wedding just a few months before the big day, Erica didn't flinch at all, and was very supportive and encouraging of us and our new plan, which we were SO grateful for. She helped us turn everything around into the direction we wanted to go (intimate, personal, and beautiful), and we were SO HAPPY. The wedding day was perfect! Erica took care of everything. We all knew where everyone and everything needed to be and when with the timeline Erica developed and executed. She coordinated all of the vendors and we didn't have to worry about a thing except showing up, looking pretty, and having the happiest day of our lives! The value you get with everything she does for you is unmatched. My groom and I were so happy not just on the wedding day, but throughout the planning process (which is important!). I would recommend her to everyone. Thank you Erica!!!

My wedding day couldn't have been more perfect! Erica was hired as my day-of-coordinator and the execution of the day was flawless. I didn't have to worry about a thing during the day and actually got to enjoy my day. Even though she was only hired as a day-of-coordinator, Erica helped me weeks in advance, with keeping me on track of deadlines, following up with vendors, meeting with my venue, and bringing up items I hadn't even though of! Erica is also very accommodating to your schedule. As with planning a wedding and having a full time job things can get a little hectic, but Erica was always willing to work around my schedule.

If you want to have a low stress day and know that it will be executed to perfection then Erica is the person for you!
