Betty did an amazing job for us on our wedding. She has different "packages" with different levels of service to fit any budget. Our wedding was small, and we had selected many of the vendors before contacting Betty. Despite that we had selected a small package, she gave us her full attention and was a wonderful resource in the weeks before and the day of the wedding.
On the wedding day, she and her staff took care of everything, leaving us to just enjoy the wedding. Her staff distributed drinks, answered questions, and picked up the glassware and dishes. Betty managed all of the vendors. I couldn't have asked for a better service. I would definitely recommend her.

Betty and her assistant were amazing! I hired her and her team for day of coordinating services. From my first meeting with Betty, I knew instantly that she was perfect for the job. I am a stickler for being on time and having things run as smoothly as possible. Our wedding had it's inevitable hiccups (guest related) but because of Betty and her assistant no one noticed. Even though our tables were set up by the venue, Betty went over them with a fine tooth comb and made sure they were perfectly set. Everything else she set up was done beautifully and quickly. Some of our other vendors even commented on how they have never been at a wedding that ran on time much less early in some instances!! By the time the wedding was over, Betty had all of our personal belongings and items we took to the venue packed away and in the car ready to go. It was such a relief that I didn't have to worry about any of it! I would definitely recommend Betty to any Bride looking for help in the wedding process or simply as a day of coordinator. She goes above and beyond and really gives you the assurance you need to be stress free on your big day!

Betty and her team are great! I was referred to her by one of my bridesmaids and I couldn't be more grateful for this referral. Betty is upbeat, creative and everso accomodating. She will bend over backwards to help a bride out... and we need it! I trusted her to get everything done and done right - she superceded my highest expectations. Ontop of that, Betty is such a sweet and cheerful person. 5 stars and a big thank you to Betty!

I am so lucky to have found Betty to be our full wedding event planner. I had recently moved to SoCal to be with my fiance. Far away from friends and family, I really needed help finding the right vendors and someone to help me plan the entire wedding.

It was serendipity that I found Vanda Events on a wedding planner website after many days of looking online. The first meeting was set up quickly and my fiance and I booked her services immediately. Betty was so friendly, energetic, and passionate. What was equally important was her event fees. We were planning to have a 300 guest wedding so we were shocked at how reasonable her full package fee was. We didn't need any convincing.

Betty really listened to our wishes and knew exactly what we'd like. She recommended the right vendors, set up appointments and went with us to all of our meetings. She always replied promptly to all my calls and emails. Everything was on schedule and really took a lot of the planning stress off of me. I am a meticulous planner and am happy to say that Betty is, too. As gifts, she even made me a custom card box for the reception and took care of any extra flowers I needed.

What was really important for me was to have my wedding to go smoothly and for all my guests to have a great time. Betty made sure of that! My family even requested to have an impromptu tea ceremony during the cocktail hour and Betty was able to make it work. My family and friends thought the set-up of the wedding was beautiful. My husband and I were able to just enjoy the wedding and didn't have to worry about small details. Also, we didn't have to delegate responsibilities to certain family members or friends. Everyone was free to party :)

Overall, it was a pleasure to work with Betty. Looking forward to more event planning with Vanda events in the future.

Betty was such a pleasure to work with! She clearly understood the look & vibe I wanted and contributed many wonderful ideas. She is very knowledgeable & has great attention to detail. The wedding flowers were beautiful and just what I wanted.

Although she worked as my florist, her background in interior design & her experience as a wedding planner gave her great insight to the "big picture" and enabled her to give me very helpful suggestions and advice on the logistics side of planning the wedding, which I did myself. She is bright, energetic, cheerful, and she communicates extremely well in person & via email, which was a plus for me, since I prefer email to phone. My mother & I liked Betty immediately when we met her. I never worried about the flowers for an instant.

She has a whole range of services that she can provide. I sort of wish I had hired her to plan my whole wedding from the beginning; it would've been a wise investment that saved me some stress. In the end, I was very happy with how things worked out.

Hiring Vanda Events was the best decision I ever made. Betty guided me every step of the way from begining to end, she would respond to all of my emails/text during the day, nights and weekends. She helped me find my dream venue, photographer and videographer. She would contact vendors with any questions I had. Betty definitely does indeed go way above and beyond the call of duty in her work for you. The wedding planning experience for my husband and I went so smoothly and fun. She is very professional, friendly and multi talented. Betty is extremely passionate at what she does. I highly recommend her to anyone for any events, I would love to work with her again in the future she is amazing person. Thank you for making our special day a dream come true.

I found Betty about a year before my wedding. I had scoured every single wedding blog out there trying to get as much information as possible. I knew I wanted an intimate wedding, simple but elegant, but with a lot of personal touches that would blend our cultures (I am Peruvian, the groom is Vietnamese). I had met with a few different wedding planners to try to find that connection, and she was the last planner I met with. Betty and I met at a Starbucks, and immediately I felt that connection with her. She has such a natural, warm joyful nature about her that just makes you want to be her friend! This ended up being a very easy decision for me. She was always very patient with me, even during my little bridezilla moments, easily accessible, easy to communicate with and always with a smile on her face despite what challenges came our way. She was with me through it all, sifting through different venue packages, the walk thru at our final selected spot, the menu tasting, tasting the Peruvian wedding favor treats and communicating with vendors.

Betty is also floral trained and was able to do the flowers because our wedding was very intimate, a little less than 100 ppl. Talk about an entire package!!! Her flowers were AMAZING, and the family raved about it! My bouquet was soft pastels, with delicate peonies!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! My stem handle was also wrapped in lace to give it that vintage look! I loved it so much I took my bouquet and the grooms boutenniere (Sp??) to get preserved as a lasting keepsake!!

Overall, Betty focused on the budget and made sure we were happy with all of our vendors, and brought some very unique ideas to our wedding, including very talented Lion Dancer Troupes as entertainment for our guests! The wedding was a TOTAL HIT! She puts her whole heart and soul into her events, and really made it my dream wedding.

THANK YOU BETTY!!! :)

I highly recommend Vanda Events!!!!! Betty Lang/Vanda Events was such a blessing!!! After being overwhelmed with meeting florists who were either too expensive or too canned, I was so glad that our coordinator introduced us to Vanda Events. I had clipped a couple of pictures that I wanted and when we met with Betty, it was like she clipped the exact same things. I wanted a lot of green and white florals with modern elements. Bettys designs and the sample centerpiece she prepared for us a couple of months before the wedding had us sold! I loved how she was so conscientious about staying on budget and also making sure the flowers were not anemic looking (one of my pet peeves). When I saw my bouquet, I almost cried. The groomsmen (who I thought wouldnt care about flowers) actually loved their boutonnieres of orchids Vanda did all of our personal flowers, centerpieces, church flowers, cake flowers and out of town guests boutonnieres.

I hired Betty Lang for her day of coordinating service, which also included help during the final month before the wedding. When my husband and I first met Betty, we knew that she was the right person for us. She's energetic and super detail-oriented. We liked her right away. The day before the wedding, we had an emergency with our centerpiece vases (the short version of the story is that I had tried to buy budget/cheapie vases to cut back on costs and my florist informed me that they wouldn't work with our heavy arrangements) and Betty came to the rescue, borrowing 16 tall vases from one of her florist friends for us! Our wedding was small/medium sized- 160 guests- but we had a lot of details that needed to be attended and about 14 different vendors that needed to be kept track of, from DJs and lighting technicians to lion dancers and acoustic singers. Betty kept track of all of these details and saved me so much stress. Also, the groomsmen got very drunk early in the day and I'm sure they must have been super annoying, but Betty kept everyone in line and the whole ceremony and reception entrance was executed without a hitch. I highly recommend Betty and her services: as a bride, I was able to enjoy my day and trust that everything would run smoothly.

Fantastic service! We relied most on Betty for her day-of-coordination, since we were able to pick most of our vendors ourselves. She did an amazing job coordinating all of the different vendors and confirming appointments, making placecards. Pretty much, she made the day run very efficiently, taking care of the minute details that could really put an annoyance on your special day! She took care of reception decor set-up and making sure everyone knew where to go (ie: grand entrance, directing guests). Also, she speaks Vietnamese fluently, which was a bonus for both of our parents as we had a traditional Vietnamese ceremony.
