I would recommend Invisible Hostess to any of my friends. Jocelyn was my coordinator and she helped me dig into details and ask questions I would have never known to consider. They are THE best.

We hired Mary as a day-of coordinator. She was far more than that! For months leading up to our big day, she was available to help us sort through all the little details and give advice on everything. She was there for our rehearsal and managed to wrangle a large and rowdy bridal party so everyone knew exactly what they were supposed to do. She coordinated with all the rest of our vendors to make sure our day ran seamlessly. I didn't have to lift a finger on the big day which is truly the whole point of having a coordinator. I'd heard some horror stories about coordinators dropping the ball on things and was a little hesitant going in. I can tell you I had absolutely nothing to worry with Mary and her team! She is a rock star and my day was perfect, thanks in large part to her hard work. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone planning a big event!

I heard amazing things about The Invisible Hostess from other vendors so I knew if they were available I had to book them! We ended up booking with Mary and she was AMAZING. All of our other vendors were raving about the timeline document and they all told me that she was the most thorough and detailed coordinator they had ever seen! I honestly can't imagine what the day would've been like without her and her assistant. Anyone I know who gets engaged will hear all about The Invisible Hostess from me. I always thought that coordinators just collected information and then showed up the day of and that's when they did their magic, but Mary was with us every step of the way and met with us several times before the wedding! With her help I was able to enjoy my wedding day and not have to stress about a single thing because I knew she had it handled!

When guests were emailing complaints about the travel, logistics, and everything under the sun - bringing me to tears, there was Natasha to talk me through how to respond to each and every issue. When I couldn't figure out how many tents/spoons/lights to order, there was Natasha with all the answers. When some of my vendor contracts were hard to understand and negotiate, there was Natasha to review and jump in on my behalf. When my dad got sick a few months before the wedding and I needed to put planning on-hold, there was Natasha checking on me and making sure I didn't miss any important deadlines. When the caterer needed to cancel the main dish the day before the wedding, there was Natasha to brainstorm alternatives. When gale force winds and rain threatened to ruin our outdoor ceremony and reception, there was Natasha to help us execute a backup plan.

Simply put - we couldn't have pulled off our wedding without Natasha from the Invisible Hostess. Reliable, responsive, professional, caring, honest, and most of all - super talented at coordinating each and every last detail. She brought our vision to life and never let us see her sweat. The best money spent for the wedding, bar none.

We were on the fence about hiring a wedding coordinator, so we decided to compromise and go with a "day of" coordinator. I am so glad we did! Natasha with The Invisible Hostess is fantastic, and so much more than a day of coordinator. She helped us select an amazing vendor team, coordinated all of the logistics with them, was available the entire week before our weeding for all of the random questions and errands that come up, put together a detailed day of timeline and successfully kept us on track the entire day (I didn't ever have to look at my watch -- not even once!), effortlessly managed a couple of interesting family dynamics, made sure the venue was packed up at the end of the night, and collected everything we left behind and delivered it to our house the following week. If anything went wrong, we didn't know it because Natasha was there to help! I really thought I would be nervous about all of the wedding logistics that day (I was a bride after all!) but I can't tell you how comforting it was to know that Natasha would be there, taking care of every last detail. We just got to relax and enjoy the day. We can't thank Natasha enough, and I would highly recommend her to every bride out there. I honestly don't think we could have made it through the day without her. She is worth every last penny! Plus, our friends and family were so appreciative that they didn't have to worry about the logistics either. They actually got to enjoy the day, stress-free, as well! A few of my bridesmaids who recently got married even said "I wish I had a Natasha!" She, and the rest of the team at The Invisible Hostess, are truly the best!

We were on the fence about hiring a day of coordinator. Both of us thought that we were organized enough but at the end of the day, we were elated that we had booked Jocelyn and Ashley to be our coordinators. After we hammered down the timeline, they both made sure all of our vendors were kept in the loop in regards to our wedding day. On our wedding day, both were visible while also staying behind the scenes. To our knowledge, everything went off without a hitch. Their services didn't end at night though. The next day, Jocelyn came around and delivered everything that was left behind as well as our gifts.

Five stars for Jocelyn, Ashley and The Invisible Hostess!

Mary was the coordinator for our wedding, and we would highly recommend her. Mary's knowledge of wedding coordination and sense of humor made our meetings with her very productive and entertaining. On the day of the event, everything went off without a hitch (or so Mary and her assistant, Kristine, made it seem to us). Long story short, Mary is fantastic!

As Sheena will be the first to tell you, I have been dubbed "The Pinterest Bride". My coordination document outlining our day-of timeline, all of my DIY projects, sample table arrangements, and vendor information exceeded 18 pages in length. This is why, for me, hiring The Invisible Hostess was worth every penny. Sheena put me and my Type-A personality at complete ease. She was able to take my vision for the day and make it a reality, incorporating every last detail to the nth degree. Her coaching and advice along the way allowed for the planning process to be the fun and exciting process it should be. I cannot thank her enough for that alone. We also hired The Invisible Hostess for catering/hostessing services. The hostessing team was professional, courteous, and attentive. They played a major role in helping with the set-up and take-down our table arrangements, made sure that every guest was well fed, hydrated (it was 93+ degrees on the day of our wedding) and cared for. With an unexpected last minute change, Sarah stepped up to the plate dove head first into the wedding coordination world. She did a fantastic job assisting Sheena, contributing to the absolute best day of my life. If I could give advice to future brides considering hiring wedding coordination services, it would be this: Do it! This will be the best gift you can give to yourself to ensure the day you’ve been waiting your whole life for is the perfect day you always envisioned. Mine certainly was.

Jocelyn from TheInvisibleHostess was beyond words, incredible. She helped us lay out every detail of our big day, and continued to press on with details we did not have down yet. Her timeline she created for our event and all of our vendors was incredible, everyone knew where to be and what to do at exactly what time. Honestly, I hope we have another event in Seattle just so we can work with Jocelyn again. She was such a blessing to our day. Her time, professional etiquette, experience, and hard work ethic worked to give us a wonderful wedding day. If there was anything about our wedding that didn't go as planned, we didn't know about it. She took care of every single detail. She even picked up the slack that our venue should have taken care of. I can't say enough about Jocelyn's work. She is worth every penny and she is a truly wonderful person to work with. Thank you so much Jocelyn!!!!
