Tammy Goral of Sparkling Engagements did an amazing job! She gave me so many vendor recommendations and took me to many site visits when I was looking for a reception venue. She negotiated the contract for the reception/catering, helped me order the paper and make my invitations which had I purchased them would have cost around $10/invitation but after postage and materials ended up being about $6 per. She provided the design for the invitation and wording and did all of the printing for me. She also went with me on several occassions to find the dress and took pictures of me in each one so I could upload the pics and email them to my mom who lives out of town. She helped me make my own bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres and provided encouragement and support all the way through the planning. She made phone calls, set up appointments, and confirmed services with all of the different vendors (which after awhile starts to become overwhelming). The day of the wedding, she was completely indespensible. She was completely professional from appearance to behavior and verbal communications. I didn't ever have to worry or wonder about anything. She made sure all of the vendors were on time and set-up appropriately, pinned flowers on the guys and gave corsages to the moms, put the ushers in their places with the programs and the guest book, and made sure everyone was exactly where they were supposed to be at exactly the right time. At the reception she kept a drink in my hand all night and communicated with the DJ and others to be sure the first dance was timed just right, the toasts were made and the cake was cut. At the end of the night we planned to leave in a carriage. As my new husband helped me into the carriage, I saw that my bag with all of my personal belongings that I had left in the dressing room at the church was closed up and had been neatly placed in the carriage as well as a picnic basket from the reception to take back to the hotel. Everything was seamless and perfect. She thought of everything and handled it like a pro! My wedding day was stress free and easy for me and my family. It was great to be able to enjoy the party with my guests instead of directing it behind the scenes. If you can't afford to pay for someone to help plan your wedding it is well worth the money to hire just for the day-of coordination needs. (Although, if you are on a budget, it really is helpful to spend a little money on the planner because she can help you stay within your budget and still have the wedding you want.) Tammy offers several tiered packages ranging from $400 to $3000. I worked with her to pick and choose what services I wanted/needed for planning and day-of and created my own package. I cannot believe how easy it was on my wedding day to get married and enjoy the party. Nothing went wrong at all!! I really could not have done it as well without her!

I would highly recommend Tammy. We interviewed three different wedding coordinators and enjoyed our meeting with Tammy the best. She was recently married and had a great personality. Also, she was President of the local wedding planner's association. Tammy has some great packages to pick from. We liked one in particular but wanted to add some things to it. Tammy easily modified the contract for us and worked with us through the process. We did most of our communication over email and she read all of our contracts before we signed them. She was priceless on the wedding day. She ran everything according to schedule and it was great having her assistant at our reception site with all the vendors while Tammy dealt with everything at the church. She made sure everything went smoothly. It rained horribly on our wedding day and we had to modify all our plans. Tammy worked with the DJ and the caterer to make sure everything worked out as we changed the plans on the spot. She was on top of everything, from making sure we had a quiet place to relax and eat, making sure we had a drink when we wanted it, and helping everyone have a wonderful time. Some of our guests even couldn't remember seeing her, that's how much she moved and stayed out of the way. Tammy was wonderful and I would recommend anyone to her. We actually already have: two of our friends are getting married to each other this summer and they are using Tammy and another set of friends are interviewing her for their wedding this fall.
