My (now) wife and I feel exceptionally fortunate to have been able to work with Tracey.

A bit of backstory: We are very type A people – we need to be in control and know what is going to happen and when; I produce events for a living; we had picked the type of venue that requires you to bring everything in – down to the drinking water. It was going to be a staggering challenge for anyone we hired.

After firing our planner/designer because she wasn’t giving us what we needed, we interviewed a bunch of new candidates. It became clear very quickly that Tracey was absolutely the best choice. From the moment our partnership with Tracey began (I refer to her as our partner because it never felt like a client-vendor relationship) we were a team with a common goal and common vision. Tracey was considerate of our opinions, letting us do whatever we wanted, but she also had no issues stepping in when she thought our ideas were off or if she knew of a way to make them better. She was always pleasant (even when we were overbearing) and it never seemed as though we were bothering her no matter how simple/complex our questions or concerns were, or what time of day/night it was.

When you read about Tracey, you read about her impeccable planning/executing skills. There isn't much about her incredible creative design. But there should be. Through many discussions we were able to convey our overall concept to her and from those discussions she created an unreal day/weekend. What we saw the day of our wedding is exactly what we saw when we would dream about it. Down to the welcome signage.

My wife and I feel very lucky to have found Tracey and we can’t imagine our day with anyone else. Almost everyone who attended has since told us that it is the best wedding they have ever been to (completely unprompted). So look no further. It will be the best decision you make – other than marrying the love of your life, of course.

Thank you Tracey!!!

Polka Dot Events was the best choice we made throughout our wedding planning! Tracey and Allie were so responsive in the month(s-they didn't stick to just month-of) leading up to our wedding, and I felt they were ready and willing to answer even my most ridiculous questions. Allie's day-of work was AMAZING-she really went above and beyond to help us and our guests have an amazing time, and allowed me to be completely carefree and enjoy the party. Everyone involved felt that Allie became one of the gang that day, which was great--I never felt as if I were being micromanaged or pushed in anyway, but felt that I was in the very capable hands of a friend.

I would hire Polka Dot again in an instant, and am trying to think of an event that I can plan so I have a reason to do so! You won't regret working with this professional, efficient, and fun group!

Tracey was amazing! We cannot thank her enough. She helped make the day run perfectly. I never gave a second thought to any of the organization or planning or schedule that day, and I'm a very type A personality - so that speaks volumes to how great she was at her job. We were in a raw space, so everything needed to be hired and brought in. Tracey coordinated with every vendor perfectly and kept us from having to worry about the late and incorrect alcohol arrivals (which I only heard about after the fact), set up the escort cards in a decorative way that was far better than I could have imagined, and kept the night moving forward smoothly. She also has a very down-to-earth and easy personality, which was important to me when I was looking for a wedding coordinator. Highly recommended. Much thanks to Tracey for making our day beautiful and stress free!

We hired Tracey to coordinate the last month before our wedding as well as our actual wedding day. Tracey went above and beyond and the result was wedding day bliss and perfection. She was a pleasure to work with and a great energy to have present on the most important day of our lives so far. We liked her so much we asked her to coordinate our rehearsal dinner and she offered us a great deal. Tracey was incredibly organized and said yes to every task and request, even if it was not in the scope of responsibility. My husband and I couldn't be happier with how wonderful everything turned out and we know Tracey played a huge part in making that happen.

Seriously, look no farther. Tracey was our month-of wedding coordinator and we cannot recommend her enough!

My sister and I met Tracey at a wedding event at the Wythe Hotel last year. We were immediately drawn to her spunky personality and friendly demeanor and my sister hired her shortly thereafter for her April wedding. I’m generally pretty OCD / organized and never thought that I would need a month-of, but after living through my sister’s wedding and understanding how key Tracey was to the entire process, I did not think twice about hiring her for our wedding six months later.

Tracey goes above and beyond to ensure that everything goes smoothly on your wedding day. She never said no – on several occasions, she agreed to last minute meetings with my husband and I or our vendors and she went out of her way to tour the space with us since it was a bit unique. She was also balanced – she knew when to make decisions on her own (and we 100% trusted her to do so), but she also knew when to ask for input. She was super organized and the program that she used kept everyone in line. She was an absolute pleasure to work with.

I cannot stress the importance of having someone take care of logistics the month of your wedding. You will inevitably be stressed with last minute details and having Tracey to lean on was a dream.

Hiring Tracey is the best decision you'll make in your wedding planning process. She is highly organized, detail oriented, professional, not to mention a fun person to be around. Everything involved with planning our Manhattan loft wedding went smoothly with Tracey's help. Even when we hit some bumps (as everyone will), Tracey was able to roll with the punches and provide quick solutions. She was expecially amazing the day of the wedding and kept us stress free! Thanks to her expertise and skill, our wedding went off without a hitch and even better than we imagined.

Tracey was such a gem! I met her at a Wedding Crashers event and loved her vibe right away. I had already done most of the planning for our day but knew I would need someone as we approached the actual date & especially the day of. If there's anything I can recommend to anyone it is to definitely have someone keeping things running smoothly that day! Tracey did an amazing job getting in touch with all our vendors and keeping them on schedule (most without me even knowing which is really the biggest treat as you approach the crazies week of your life!). She handled everything so well the day of I really was beyond calm because I knew everything was being handled. Perhaps most importantly she managed our sometimes challenging families like a complete pro. I'd expect most people to run after dealing with a stressed out version of my mother but she'll be helping us with my sister's wedding this fall! Highly recommend if you're looking for things to run as smoothly as possible.

Tracey is an exceptional wedding planner. She was able to manage fully planning 2 events for our Pakistani-English wedding weekend, balancing our budget and various cultural elements that she was not familiar with previously. As working professionals with limited time on our hands, we really appreciated her straightfwd, organized, and timely approach to everything. When I requested changes it was never a problem for her, and she would often creatively make things happen when we'd hit any bumps in the road. Planning 2 intercultural events over a weekend in NYC with 120 international guests is no small feat, but Tracey pulled it all off seamlessly and in fact was a pleasure to work with. Our wedding was the best weekend ever not only for us but for all our friends and family too. THANK YOU!

We never thought we were the type to hire a wedding planner, but the venue we chose came with nothing and we found out we bit off more than we could chew. Polka Dot Events saved the day! Tracey did an amazing job planning and coordinating our wedding and she was a complete pleasure to work with as well. She was always extremely responsive and helpful. The vendors she recommended were wonderful and she worked easily with the ones we found. She was conscious of our budget the whole time and never made us feel pressured to do anything a certain way. Her input and recommendations were great but she also was also flexible enough to allow our vision of the day to come to fruition. Our wedding day really was the best day ever, everything happened seamlessly without us having to pay any attention to the little details the day of and it is all thanks to Tracey. Many of our guests told us they saw her working her tail off! We can't recommend her more highly, especially if you are wary of the "Wedding Industrial Complex." We didn't do things too traditionally and Tracey really helped give us the wedding we wanted!

Tracey Goldstein of Polka Dot Events did an incredible job helping me plan my wedding and most of all for day-of-coordination. I initially saw a Groupon for her services and decided to purchase it after doing some research and contacting her directly to check her availability for my wedding date.

The month before the event, we collaborated on a timeline for the wedding day along with a list of the vendors and bridal party contact info. We clearly delineated her role and those of others involved in the wedding in the schedule/timeline.

The week before the event, she confirmed arrival times and reviewed the schedule with each of the vendors. She called everyone from the restaurant for the rehearsal dinner to the makeup artist, DJ/MC and priest. She was great with following up on various tasks and loose ends that probably would've stressed me out the week of the wedding.

Thanks to Tracey's help, the wedding weekend was absolutely flawless. I did not have to worry about anything because Tracey was able to handle any issues that came up. I had a sigh of relief when she took charge of the ceremony rehearsal and had us all out of the church in an hour, something unheard of in most Indian Christian weddings. When certain people, like the organist, did not attend the rehearsal she made sure that they were aware of their role and would be present the next morning. The next morning at 7 am, as promised, she came to the suite where the bridesmaids and I were getting ready. I simply handed her my reception outfit, some odds and ends to be given to other vendors, and the tip for the bridal attendant. I was stress-free for the whole day. She made sure everything was set up for the ceremony and reception. She even held onto a gold bracelet that had broken as well as my husband's wallet and phone!

Based on what I saw and what I heard from friends/family, the big fat indian NJ wedding with over 300 people was a huge success! Book PDE!
