Hiring Joan was absolutely the smartest wedding planning decision that I made. Joan was so supportive, responsive, and wonderful to work with. I am a very organized person and didn't need someone to completely plan my wedding for me, but I was shocked by how essential Joan turned out to be. Her professionalism and the relationships that she has with different wedding vendors was a huge benefit - vendors love working with her and she was able to solve any problems that came up. Joan was also able to find me a high-quality budget friendly florist who I never would have found on my own. As a bride with a demanding work schedule I had to rely a lot on email. Joan always responded quickly and made me feel like I was the only bride she had. Joan truly listened and cared about me having exactly the wedding that I wanted, regardless of how non-traditional any of my ideas were. Having Joan in charge on the day of my wedding allowed me to focus only on getting married, because I could trust her to coordinate everything and get everyone where they needed to be. I am so very lucky that Joan was available to help with my wedding.

Thank you so much for your kind words. You were a great couple to work with. I enjoyed getting to know you, your family, and friends. They all seemed to really enjoy the wedding and Southern menu. Your choice of style details made for an elegant affair. 701 Whaley looked gorgeous in the monochromatic scheme of lavender and white. I appreciated the non-traditional inclusion of the decadent dessert tower and Krispey Creme doughnut hole tower. Both were a huge hit with your guests. Thanks, again, for allowing me to assist. It was my pleasure!

We hired Joan over a year ago to help with the planning of my daughters wedding. She took so much stress off of my daughter and myself. This is something we had originally talked about handling ourselves, but thank goodness we found Joan! I am sure we both would have been crazy by the wedding day! Joan was so wonderful about meeting with us anytime we needed and meeting with all of our vendors to be sure they suited our tastes and needs perfectly. She traveled many miles to meet with us, being that we live 2 hours away from her. Most of those trips were on weekends. Joan goes above and beyond for her clients. After all the planning, the wedding turned out amazing. Joan and her girls did an awesome job getting the wedding attendants organized and ready to walk down the aisle. The reception was absolutely gorgeous! Joan just has that special touch with decorating and organizing. If you are looking for a wedding planner Joan comes highly recommended from this bride and her mother.

Joan is totally dedicated to providing her clients exactly what they are looking for when trying to figure out what vendors to go with, pricing, arrangements, etc. My daughter's wedding was absolutely perfect in every way. Joan is professional, down to earth, easy to get along with, respectful and so sweet natured. She is a great listener, very resourceful and is extremely knowledgeable in her field as a wedding planner. My husband and I both agree we could not have had our daughter's perfect wedding without Joan. She took care of all our needs, which took the burden off of us so we could relax and enjoy our daughter's special day! I can't say enough about Joan. She was awesome!

Joan was incredibly responsive to all of my calls and emails. She helped me faciliatate a day of schedule for our wedding day and personally met and spoke with all of my vendors. She is organized, thoughtful, and decisive. We were living out of state, and Joan helped mitigate a lot of potential issues and really brainstormed the best course of action for us.
The day of the wedding was crazy, and Joan was a gem throughout everything. She kept me and my husband on task and kept my mom worry-free. She was well worth every penny. We had the most amazing day ever, and I am so thankful to Joan for being part of our big day.

Joan was absolutely wonderful to work with. She tailored her services to what I needed and was willing to work with me as I needed her. I wanted to do most of my planning on my own but I knew I would need someone on the day of the wedding to run the show. Joan was the perfect person! I was able to tap into her expertise in the months leading up to the wedding with etiquette questions, vendor recommendations or suggestions on timing the day. She also was a life saver when it came to getting the caterer to do their job. My wedding was perfect and just how I imagined it and Joan had a lot to do with that. She and her team had the reception set up on time and did a great job with the layout of the space knowing what to place where so that the guests could move around with ease.

Anyone who needs a wedding coordinator or event planner in any capacity will be highly satisfied with the services Joan Day Weddings provides.

Joan is so creative and responsive. She is truly the Paula Dean of weddings. :-) Her schedule is very flexible to schedule meetings and updates and she always answers her emails so quickly.
The last month was so hectic and she did it all - did the buying for the children's bags & the welcome bags and got everything delivered where it needed to be and was always there. She will take care of everything (including all the nitty details) if you want her to - a great talented person. We can't imagine our wedding without her and DEFINITLY couldn't have done it without her.

The quality of service that Joan Day Weddings provided was wonderful. She was so responsive to our requests and questions. I rarely had to wait to have a response from her. Her demeanor and attitude made her a joy to work with, both in planning the wedding and on the big day itself. I got many compliments from family, friends, and vendors on what a delight she was to work with. The cost value of her services matched easily with a bride on a budget and the services provided far exceeded the monetary cost. The value of having someone to help plan and coordinate the event on the day-of paid off at the end of the night when we realized what an extraordinary wedding we had put on, all with Joan's help! And her flexibility to plan a unique event that all parties were happy with in the end and, on the big day, to maneuver through all the little wedding day mishaps that might be expected, helped us to have a spectacular experience (never knowing what was happening in the background). She was truly a blessing to work with!
