From the start to AFTER the finish, Tanya and her team were always one step ahead and made planning my wedding a BLAST. I was planning from out of state and only made two weekend trips while planning my wedding (not even needed, the vendors Tanya selected were perfect for our style and incredibly talented). I was a little clueless about everything that goes into a wedding and I looked forward to Tanya's updates to keep my on my timeline. It's hard to review everything that The Event Group International did because it was literally EVERYTHING. TEGI has amazing vendor connections but no pressure if you want more options or to pick your own. TEGI hand addressed save-the-dates and invites, collaborating with the stationary designer the entire way. Rehearsal dinner organization, weekend schedule help, transportation arrangement for both days, out-of-town bags (construction, delivery), meeting with vendors to give feedback, construction to final touches of the space, vendor payment and tips...
Tanya and the team will give you the wedding of your dreams. They will take care of every detail so that you can focus only on what matters to you. Hiring this team was the best and only decision I had to make to throw a wedding my family and friends will be talking about forever.

If I had to do my wedding all over again I would not have changed one thing and that is all thanks to Tanya Wilbon. Every single thing about my wedding was perfect. My husband and I are still getting compliments from our guests about how it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. Whenever I needed her, all I had to do was pick up the phone and Tanya was there with her support and her ideas as to how she could get whatever it is that we needed done. The night before the wedding I asked Tanya what I needed to do the next day and she said, “just be fabulous!” On my wedding day I was fabulous! Tanya handled everything. The only thing I had to do was sit back and took in all of the beautiful moments that were created that day. Tanya Wilbon of The Event Group International is AMAZING. Hands down, the best! I highly recommend her for whatever event you are planning.

Tanya,
A special thank you to you for everything that you did for us in the lead up to and day of our wedding. You really did help us pull together the most special day of our lives. You remained unfailingly positive, despite a few weather complications and pushed for us to get what we really wanted from our wedding day. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble at any stage along our wedding journey. You were always approachable and quick to respond so that we were never left wondering. It was obvious that you had everything so firmly under control, which meant that both us and our families could relax and enjoy our day. I would absolutely recommend that people use your services. It has been a pleasure working with you and we truly appreciate everything you have done for us.
Love Mr and Mrs S

Hi Tanya,
I wanted to drop you a quick line to say THANK YOU again for all of your great work on the mendhi.
Our guests had such a wonderful time. All of them talk about how memorable the evening was. The food was so tasty. The decorations were absolutely stunning. The artists were really professional and did such a nice job.
The overall atmosphere was so festive — you had such an amazing way of getting people to dance and sing and really enjoy themselves! We are so grateful to you and your support staff for all that you did to make that night so special for us.
Many thanks again!

Thank you so much Tanya for making our special day so perfect and designing our ceremony and reception. I don't know how you were able to take all those parts and pieces of ideas I kept throwing at you and make magic. That was absolutely amazing You went above & beyond rearranging things for us working around the raindrops. Many blessings to you!

I cannot say enough good things about Tanya Wilbon and her team. She exceeded my expectations and was so wonderful to work with. I hired Tanya for day-of services and it felt like she did so much more. I wasn't originally going to get a planner in order to save money but once we got towards the end, I started to feel overwhelmed and thank goodness we did! Tanya is so knowledgeable on how the flow of weddings should go and she was so helpful. She is so fast with responding to emails which was so great. Tanya knew exactly what I wanted and totally understood my vision so I felt totally comfortable on the day of when I was getting ready, I didn't have to worry about anything. When I arrived to the venue everything was perfect and beyond amazing, and I know she worked so hard to set it all up. Tanya and her team did so many little things during the wedding that I didn't even realize because I was so busy with all the craziness of the wedding. They were great at communicating and letting me know what was coming up next during the reception. If you are interested in hiring a planner, please do yourself a favor and hire Tanya, you won't regret it and it is totally worth the money!! Thank you Tanya!!!!!!

We hired TEGI as our wedding planner about 6 months prior to our wedding date. We worked with Tanya closely during those 6 months and we cannot rave about her enough. Many planners, especially the bigger ones, make you feel like just another client in their long list. Tanya goes out of her way to be incredibly responsive to every e-mail and phone call and she makes you feel like you are her only client! I was very hands on with my wedding planning and leaned on Lauren for pretty much every decision. She has so much patience in this often frenzy-filled world of wedding planning and is always positive. She and her team shined on our wedding day, handling every little detail, every vendor, with ease. She has a knack for making you feel relaxed and that it is all going to be handled fine.
We highly recommend using the Event Group International for your wedding planning services if you are seeking a personal, organized, fun and knowledgeable planner who is also a great person and now friend to us! Thank you Tanya!

Tanya,
The services you provided for our daughter’s wedding made the event one of the most memorable experiences of our lives. With you tending to all the details, we were able to mingle with our guests and thoroughly enjoy the night. You involved us in the planning process to get our input and executed the plan with tremendous attention to detail. On the financial side, you helped us create an affordable budget and most importantly, you managed the project and carefully watched the expenses. I am delighted to say that we came in at budget, even after you were paid for your services. We are very thankful that you partnered with us to plan this important event and would highly recommend the Event Group International to anyone that is planning a significant event.

My experience working with Tanya and TEGI was nothing but the best. I started by meeting with 3 different wedding planners. There are many reasons I went with Tanya, but the first main thing that caught my attention was that she was adamant that whatever our budget for the wedding was that it would be beautiful and perfect.
I had a very long engagement and thus a long time to plan my wedding... throughout the entire process Tanya was there for me to bounce ideas off of and offer suggestions. This was really important to me because despite my wedding being over a year away (at the beginning of our relationship) she made me feel very important. While others thought it was silly for me to be planning some details so much in advance, Tanya saw the importance of this to me and helped facilitate and made my planning possible.
When we hired Tanya my parents were very skeptical that we needed a planner at all. But as the months got closer, and we started giving Tanya all the contracts and the remaining to-do lists they started coming around. At our final meeting a week before the wedding my Dad even said "I'm SO glad you hired her, we couldn't have done it without her. She thinks of everything and is amazing!" That was a big step for him and shows how much Tanya impressed him. And it's true, she did think of all the little details that I didn't think of (which is saying a lot too - because I pretty much thought of everything!).
If anything on my wedding day, or leading up to the day, went wrong - I had no idea because Tanya was there to handle and troubleshoot it all. Everything turned out so beautiful because of her help planning and also because of her coordinating the weeks before and the day of the wedding. I couldn't imagine the stress I would have had leading up to the wedding if it wasn't for her great services.
You are amazing. Thank you for all you have done for us.
