I am so pleased that we decided to book Polka Dot for the "month of" planning service. We worked with Allie and Kristi who are both very professional and easy to work with. Unless you yourself are already a professional event planner, I highly recommend hiring professionals to make sure your wedding goes off without a hitch! There is a reason event planning is a profession and Polka Dot is the best of the best! For the "month of" they take over the coordination of all your vendors, help plan your timeline for bill payments and any tasks you have left to do, they help make reception extras like signs, gift bags...basically anything you can think of they will help with.
Kristi was truly a god send on our wedding day, she made sure that the small hiccups we encountered were corrected easily (I didn't even know there had been any minor issues - like the shuttle not knowing where to drop our guests off - until after the fact). Kristi was so organized, made sure myself and my bridal party knew where to be and what to do at all times, she made sure all our vendors knew their roll and the plan and she worked very well with our venue coordinator. I love polka dot, we couldn't have had the wedding of our dreams without them!

Allie from Polka Dot was a huge asset in planning our wedding! She took care of so many details leading up to the big weekend, and her presence at the wedding allowed us to really just enjoy our celebration (and not worry about the every-changing weather forecast and guest list). Knowing she was on board lowered my stress level about 300%.
One of our vendors commented that Allie was exceptionally on top of things, and my bridesmaids told me that they wished they had an Allie to help them organize their lives all the time! To boot, she is a sweet, fun person who is a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Allie and Polka Dot in a heartbeat!

Tracey Goldstein is a dream. Weddings get expensive and I was very cost-conscious, but trust me when I say that this is money well spent. I met Tracey two years ago right after I got engaged and I hired her immediately. From our very first meeting, I felt heard and understood by her: she listened closely, remembered little details I mentioned off-hand, and asked lots of follow up questions to help me elaborate on my ideas and ensure that she had an accurate grasp of what I was trying to convey. Over the course of my two year engagement, Tracey consistently displayed the same level of thoughtfulness and attention to detail.

First and most important to me: Tracey is so supportive and really focused on making her clients feel comfortable at all stages of the planning process. I made some unconventional choices for my wedding (no bridal party, no bouquet, no cake, no color scheme) and while some vendors I met with tried to push me in different directions, Tracey was always in my corner. She definitely shared her expertise to suggest when certain ideas might not be feasible, but even then she never tried to dissuade me. Rather, she would explain "that idea is difficult because of X and Y, but we could do Z to make it happen, or perhaps you might consider doing this other thing instead which wouldn't be the same but might have the effect you are going for."

Moreover, Tracey is highly organized. She is very responsive over email and was generous with her ideas and suggestions. Plenty of times when I was feeling lost and didn't know who to ask about something, I would shoot Tracey an email and she would get back to me immediately, pointing me in the right direction.

Finally, Tracey is such a great person. She is sweet, kind, and cool as a cucumber-- which is very important throughout the wedding planning process but especially on the day of the event!

In sum: I recommend Tracey and her team without reservation and am very grateful to have worked with them!

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!

I'm so glad that we met Tracey Goldstein of Polka Dot Events at the Toasted Brooklyn bridal expo. She certainly was one of the most invaluable vendors we booked for our wedding. Most vendors we met that day sent out a standard, automated e-mail to everyone who left their address on their clipboard. Tracey, however, took the time out to send a personalized e-mail. She remembered that we were hoping to have our reception at 501 Union, but knew that we were having difficulty securing a date at our church. She wished us luck in meeting with the church and told us to feel free to contact her once we had a date and venue settled. That attention to detail was what I wanted in a wedding planner. I made sure once we had the church and venue squared away that we book Tracey.

She was very cool and low pressure in our initial meeting, which I appreciated. A wedding is stressful enough that you don't want to have someone aggressively pushing their services, adding additional pressure and stress on you. Without any hesitation we booked her for month of coordination. Her cool demeanor was maintained throughout the whole process which was such a relief.

From the first meeting she was great with recommending vendors. I was stumped when it came to transportation and makeup. We ended up booking her recommended vendors and they were amazing!

I had so many ideas for the wedding that I was in love with, but did not have the slightest clue how to execute them. Tracey and Allie were key players in this aspect. I would share an idea with Tracey and she came up with a plan on how to execute it. Everything exceeded my expectations. From our guest book to favors, to lists of activities to occupy our guests in between the ceremony and reception, she had a solution for all of it! I NEVER would have been able to pull off all the little details without Tracey and her assistant

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.
