Karolina was great! She was there and committed 110 % all the time. Communication is the key with be a wedding planner and she listened and took notes during every meeting. She always answered emails immediately, and stayed on top of everything. She knew what I wanted before I knew :-) (bling). She had great referrals for all vendors. Everyone she brought to the table went above and beyond. Her prices are extremely great compared to others. Very professional and funny too. We received the "Full Wedding Planning Package" and she provided all the services we needed.

You were great Karolina and our day couldn't have been as special and beautiful as it was without you.

We both thank you

We used Karolina for our “day of coordinator” and she was great! And, the price for services couldn’t be beat! She was about ½ the cost of some of the planners we looked into who are based out of the city and I feel like we got everything we wanted from her services! We met once for our initial consultation and decided to hire her on the spot! All of our correspondence was via e-mail which is what I preferred. She was always organized both in-person and online. She responded to e-mails so quickly, it was great! About two months prior to the wedding we touched base again and she began working on our timeline for the day. We went through about 5-6 drafts as things were changing and plans were finalizing. Karolina was great at answering any questions we had and found her to be so valuable. She attended the rehearsal at the church to make sure everything went smoothly and then I barely saw her the day of the wedding which I feel is exactly how it should be! She had an assistant the day-of who also was helpful with all of the minor details. Everything was set up beautifully at the reception venue and the day could not have been more perfect! I thank her for all of her hard work and attention to detail to make our day so special! Karolina was great!!

Our wedding was flawless, & this was due in large part, of not entirely to Karolina and her amazing organization! This was the first wedding for both my husband and I so we had NO idea what we needed/wanted to do. Karolina asked key questions & made appropriate suggestions along the way, before long it felt as though she "knew" us well enough to steer us in the direction of our perfect wedding. Although she was planning other weddings, there was never lack of communication nor did we ever feel as though we were backseat to any other wedding, she always made us feel like her focus. She is extremely organized, responsible & reliable. ..on top of that she is a great person! Very easy to get along with and feel comfortable with right away :) I am recommending her to all of our friends planning a wedding , whether they think they need one or not. It was a priceless feeling being stress free on my wedding as well as comforting to know that no additional stress or responsibilities were being put on any of my bridesmaids or mom(s). Everyone was able to enjoy the process & most importantly the actual wedding thanks to Karolina :)

I moved out of state in the middle of planning my wedding, and knew I needed someone on the ground to help me with planning from afar. Karolina rose to the occasional spectacularly. She was super quick with responses via email, and made great suggestions about things I hadn't even thought of. She obviously has a lot of knowledge and experience with wedding planning, and I trusted her judgment and advice on just about everything. I technically hired her as a day-of coordinator, but that includes help in the months leading up to the wedding, finalizing with vendors, attending any meetings, etc. For what she charges, it was an amazing deal, and I would hire her again in a heartbeat! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

We hired Karolina for the "Day of Coordinator" package which was one of the best decisions I ever made. Karolina never forgot about us during the wedding process - she always emailed me to see how we were doing and how the planning was coming along. Any time I had to email her a question, I always received a quick response. She was so helpful during the wedding process. Even during the wedding day, I didn't have to worry about anything being set up - all I had to do was give her all the stuff and she took care of it which allowed me to enjoy my day. Everything turned out perfect and I would definitely hire her again!!

I was on the fence about hiring a day of coordinator throughout our 12-month engagement, but now believe that hiring Karolina was the best money I spent on the entire wedding. Even though I had planned, spread-sheeted, and timelined my heart out, there were still so many things I did not think of that Karolina helped bring to my attention. Outside of the extremely helpful assistance leading up to the big day, Karolina was worth her weight in gold the day of. Despite my careful planning, things inevitably ran behind schedule, but Karolina was there to make sure everything went smoothly and was accounted for. Trust me, you don't want to be worried about tracking down your wedding presents and cards at the end of the reception or making sure grandma has the perfect seat to view speeches ahead of time. In my typical A personality fashion, I interviewed over a dozen wedding coorindators in the Chicago area, including many in person meetings. Based on my initial research, Karolina had the perfect mix of friendliness and organization at a price that you simply could not find anywhere else for that quality of service.

Honestly, I can't recommend Karolina enough. She was such a joy to work with, she was on top of everything, and she was incredibly responsive to any request I sent her way. I pride myself on being on top of my game, and I am so glad I hired Karolina to handle the day-of burdens for the wedding since I could not be in two places at once, much to my chagrin. As an example of Karolina's prowess: she organized ALL the decor for the reception (I had a lot of DIY projects and she skillfully set up everything), she had the entire wedding party (14 attendants, parents, and bride and groom) ready to go at all times, she also handled some last-minute issues with the vendor (they didn't plate a few of the desserts and my mom asked Karolina to locate them - she did, and they were out instantly!), she also helped us locate the wayward limo and handled a very difficult dress bustle. She's pretty awesome and her rates are really reasonable considering the wedding price madness.

My husband and I used Weddings by Karolina for our wedding and could not be happier. Karolina was amazing! In the weeks prior to the wedding she was there to assist with great advice and brought items to our attention that we never would have thought about on our own. She was so helpful! A couple days before the wedding we ran into a couple glitches with the delivery of our flowers and timing of our photographers. When we mentioned these matters to Karolina she didn’t hesitate to get on the phone and start getting in touch with our vendors. She was great and because of her everything ran smoothly the day of our wedding. She kept everything on track and we were beyond thrilled with her work. We will definitely recommend her to any of our friends/family getting married in the Chicago area in the future!!

If it weren't for Karolina, my wedding day would have been a complete mess! We hired her as our day-of-coordinator. I liked how even though we hired her 10 months before our wedding, she was still available whenever we had questions. She responded to emails right away, which is a plus in my book since I was planning my wedding across the country. She is very detail-oriented and knew exactly how things were supposed to go. She was great at asking a lot of questions just so we were all on the same page. She accompanied us for venue visits, and she took all our church and reception decor out of our hands days before the wedding so she and her assistant can set up for us. Days before the wedding, I wrote out on a piece of paper how I wanted the guests' tables to look at the reception, as well as where I wanted everything to be (no pictures, which could be confusing, I would imagine)... walking into my reception I was so amazed, everything was so beautiful!! My husband and I are so glad we decided to use her services. I highly recommend hiring Karolina for your wedding services, you'll be glad you did!

Karolina was a stellar addition to my wedding. The whole point of a DOC is to be able to completely put everything in their hands on the day of the wedding and have fun, and I was able to do that. Karolina was very flexible with my tight schedule in the weeks before the wedding and even agreed to have our final "meeting" by email rather than in person when i couldnt make it. She was super responsive throughout the process and available for both important and inane questions. She knew when to step back and let other vendors lead the way, and when to push for what I was looking for. I thought she did a great job on the day of, but afterward, I learned about multiple mini-errors that I or the caterers had made that she corrected and I never even knew about it. Highly recommend her.

Karolina was wonderful! This is the best money you will ever spend! She's great! Seriously, couldn't have done our wedding without her! I hired her for our wedding on September 20 as our day of coordinator. I wish I would have hired her as my planner. Our wedding was beautiful and she was so well organized and if there were any problems, I didn't know about them. She's patient and just really reassuring. I was so stressed and she took care of every last detail. Thanks Karolina!! You're the best!

Karolina (and her assistant Ann) were absolutely wonderful to work with. Karolina was very thorough and helped to create a much-needed timeline for the day of events. She was quick to answer e-mails and any questions that I had. Since Karolina was already booked to be at a rehearsal dinner the night of my wedding, her assistant Ann ran my event. Ann did a great job making sure everything ran smoothly and did everything I needed, without needing to be asked, throughout the night. I would absolutely recommend Weddings by Karolina to anyone getting married. It was one of the best decisions we made and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out!

Karolina was the most perfect day-of coordinator ever! She is extremely quick to respond to questions, very resourceful (we ended up using a few of her recommendations for a florist, and hair/makeup), and extremely organized. She asks the right questions, thinks about things a busy bride would never think about/remember to ask about and is very timely.

Karolina met with us initially and once before the wedding, but was very communicative throughout the entire process. She was a pleasure to work with, and we highly recommend her!

Karolina was very responsive and organized throughout planning my wedding. Although I hired her as a "day-of" coordinator she provided a lot of pre-event planning assistance. On my wedding day I felt as though I had nothing to worry about because of her competence!

I hired Karolina for the coordination of my daughters rehearsal and Wedding Day. She did an incredible job. Prior to the wedding she answered all our questions and gave us monthly reminders of what needed to be completed. During the rehearsal, which was an outside ceremony, she instructed us on exactly what to do. The day of the Wedding the ceremony went flawlously, do to Karolina. For the reception she oversaw and helped arrange all the details with the decor, oversaw the vendors and kept every thing on track, besides bustling my daughter. Because of Karolna I completely enjoyed myself at my daughters Wedding. I had full confidence that she was overseeing all the details that make for a beautiful Wedding. Karolina is absolutely professional and due to her help I had the best time at my daughters Wedding. The best money I spent!!!

What can I say about Karolina other than she and her assistant Ann (who I had the pleasure of working with on my wedding day) are out of this world. When I first started planning my wedding, I didn't even think about using a coordinator. I'm so glad I chose to, because Karolina and Ann bent over backwards for me to ensure that my husband and my special day was absolutely perfect. Karolina worked with me for the two months prior to my wedding to help me build a day of timeline, which was wonderful because it forced me to stay on track and to make decisions ahead of time. Ann was present at our rehearsal and helped to make sure she and the rest of the bridal party knew what was happening and when to ensure everything ran smoothly. Ann set everything up at the church, helped out with decorations/planning at the Cotillion for my reception, and even helped pack everything up at the end of the night...working PAST the time she was scheduled to leave, just to help out! I don't think I could have made a better decision of who to work with on my wedding day and would absolutely recommend Karolina/Ann to EVERY bride out there who is even remotely considering a coordinator. Thank you so much Karolina...you helped make our day PERFECT!

Karolina was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was so professional and helpful during the entire planning portion of the wedding. She guided me throughout the process by sending me emails to let me know what I should be doing or planning with an informative timeline. She met with my mother and me whenever we needed which was so helpful to talk to someone face to face. I do not know what we would have done without her! At the wedding she was so organized and made sure everything ran smoothly. She basically directed our ceremony and made sure the room was set up appropriately. It was truly the best day of my life and Karolina helped contribute to that. We did first look pictures and during that time some of my buttons came off of my dress. No problem thanks to Karolina, she glued and sewed the buttons back on to me dress before I walked down the isle. I ordered these light up finger things for the reception and she brought them out to our guests at the perfect time. She also organized all of our decorations and things we wanted to take home so at the end of the night there was no need to run around and collect things. Everything was together in my bridal room ready to put in the car. She took all the stress out of the day and allowed me and my mom to truly enjoy the day! Karolina thank you so much for helping to make my wedding the best day of my life!!!!!

Without Karolina, our dream wedding wouldn't have been possible. Karolina was the only vendor we signed contract on the spot. She was very professional with her work, while she was also fun to work with. She got back to our email right away whenever it was; whether she was away or had a wedding going on. She also was willing to do what we wanted to do, while giving us honest feedback about her opinion based on many wedding experience. It would be a lie if we didn't have any hiccups on our wedding day but we were glad that Karolina was able to handle them for us so we could truly enjoy our big day...We highly recommend Karolina as she is really good at what she does!

When we first started planning our wedding, I felt like having a day-of coordinator was more of a "nice-to-have" than a "necessity" - after going through the whole process, I have no clue how brides ever go without them!! Karolina was there and available throughout the whole time, but she was the most involved in the 4-6 weeks leading up to the wedding. She attended a final meeting and venue walkthrough a month prior and was a huge help both for myself and my venue coordinator. My venue's coordinator was very "by the book" - if I asked for anything out of the norm, it was kind of a fight to get it done. Karolina was a great advocate for what I wanted and making sure I was comfortable and happy with how things were turning out. She also proposed lots of ideas and questions for our coordinator, which I think was a big help to her.

My uncle officiated the wedding, so I was especially nervous about the rehearsal. I really didn't want to be in the position of telling people when to go where! Karolina ran it seamlessly and again provided lots of ideas and covered things I never would have thought of (like the order of the recessional and making sure that all of the groomsmen had the same hand on top the other to make for cohesive pictures.) The day of the wedding, I didn't have to talk to one vendor. Both my husband and I really felt that we were able to enjoy the day and celebrate with friends and family - not worry about the dozens of tiny decisions and setups that make up a wedding.

Can't say how grateful we are for Karolina's help making our day special and stress-free!

We cannot say enough great things about Karolina. We hired Karolina as our day-of coordinator, but she was helping us prepare months in advanced. We had a lot of vendors to work with, but thanks to Karolina, everyone was on the same page and ready to go on the day of the wedding. Throughout the planning process, she was always ready for any questions we had. For example, we had asked for a recommendation on a vendor for decor, and she replied almost immediately. Karolina always reminded us about important things that we easily overlooked or forgot about. The timeline she had put together was very detailed and meticulous, which is the key for creating a perfect day.
Our rehearsal was run by our reverend, but Karolina was still there to help us out and to make sure everything ran smoothly. She was willing to take all of our supplies for the wedding after we had finished the rehearsal. It was an extreme weight off of our shoulders knowing that Karolina helped set it all up. That gave both of us the chance to enjoy every second of the day.
On the actual day of the wedding, everything was in place, thanks to Karolina. Right before the ceremony started, one of our decor pieces fell over with a gust of wind. Karolina came to our rescue and helped put it back up, all without the majority of the bridal party knowing anything went wrong. At the end of the night, as we were loosing track of time, Karolina still found us to say goodbye and let us know that our keepsakes were packed away and ready to bring home. It was so nice to know that we could say goodbye to our guests instead of having to end our evening packing up.
Without a doubt, we would recommend Karolina to any other couples getting married. She made the day so easy going and stress free. Words cannot express how grateful we are to have had such an amazing day. We thank Karolina so much for her help in making our big day so memorable.

Weddings by Karolina went above and beyond for our wedding. Not only was Karolina extremely responsive, she went out of her way to assist us with the planning and execution of our actual wedding day. From helping us find vendors, putting together a day-of timeline, set-up, and keeping us on schedule for the entire day, we really could not have asked for more. Anything we needed, she provided. She's extremely organized and had an answer to any question we had. I would recommend her to anyone and can not give her enough praise for everything she did to help make our special day carefree and fun!

The venue coordinator was absolutely no help. Karolina did everything, made it look so beautiful, made it look easy. She was also extremely helpful throughout the planning process. Even though she was only a day-of coordinator for us, she always was willing to take time out, talk things through and give recommendations. I cannot say enough about how much she did for us on the big day.

I would hire Karolina again in a heartbeat! My wedding went flawlessly and I know a large chunk of that was due to Karolina expertise. I had interviewed about 4 planners right after i got engaged and she was by far the most personable, the best value (we had a budget!), asked me the most questions, etc etc. I could go on and on but long story short I knew I wanted her to be a part of my big day right away!
Leading up to wedding: I probably emailed her a thousand times and she always responded right away. No question was too small for her--she even emailed me to check on me when I hadn't sent her anything for a 2 week span. She saved me so much money with vendors she knew---and they turned out to be awesome! I have already recommended hair and makeup / florist to many of my other engaged friends. She also sent me monthly checklists--which yea are on the knot/in planning books-- but it made it seem more real/ more important to get done when you had to respond to an actual human that you completed these tasks! She also called all the vendors the week of the wedding to make sure everything was set. one less thing on my checklist that week! The rehearsal went flawlessly because of her as well.
THE DAY OF: I am a nervous/control freak person as it is and was a giant ball of nerves the Friday and Saturday morning of my big day. But then she arrived at 11am and I felt way more relaxed! She has a GIANT e Kit which we ended up needing quite often! Once she arrived she started to help corset my bridesmaids, retrieve our marriage license to bring to the church, set up emergency kit, showed florist where to bring flowers (my fiancé and I were getting ready in 2 separate suites) and probably 1000 offer things I didn't notice! She even brought a cooler of extra liquor to the church to put on the limo so we'd have it after the ceremony! I could go on forever but if you are looking for an awesome day of coordinator you should hire Karolina!

Karolina was an absolute lifesaver. Before the wedding, she was not only someone that knew all the decisions that needed to be made but was also a wealth of information and advice while making them. Then, battling through a cold, helped pull off a wedding that was beyond what I could have imagined. She is professional while still being extremely kind, flexible, and helpful. I could not have asked for someone better.

Based on a recommendation from a friend we decided to hire Weddings by Karolina for our wedding planning. Our initial meeting is what really impressed us as Karolina knows what she is doing. She had all the answers to all the questions and had questions for us to consider. She provides checklists on a regular basis in a countdown method. She accompanied us to vendor meetings, venues, etc. She was an invaluable person that was there for us through the entire wedding process. On the day of our wedding she had an assistant, Linda, to help with any additional tasks. They both ensured that we had the most perfect day ever. Without Weddings by Karolina we are sure that we would have missed details that her keen eye pointed out to us. Her work compared to the cost, an absolute bargain. We can only give the highest marks for Karolina and the work she put into our wedding as it really showed in the end.

My husband and I hired Karolina for "Day of Coordinator" planning on the recommendation of another bride and it was one of the best decisions we made. We knew a large majority of our guests would be coming in from out of town and wanted to be able to focus and enjoy the time with family and friends rather than be caught up with the details on our big day. Let me tell you, Karolina was working with me MONTHS in advance of the wedding - emails to keep track of where I was at with vendors and updates, suggestions for details I hadn't thought of or needed help thinking through, multiple revisions to my timeline based on additions / changes by me, etc.!! She was extremely responsive to all emails and I really loved the fact that I didn't have to worry about one single thing from the rehearsal through the end of the reception - she's fantastic and I would recommend her services to anyone thinking of using a wedding planner AND even if you aren't thinking about using one, you should hire Karolina - she made our day worry-free and FABULOUS!

I really can't say enough good things about Karolina, she is an absolutely amazing wedding planner. We hired her about midway through our wedding planning, initially only for her day of services. But after considering how much work we had left, we decided on her partial planning package and I think this may have been the best decision that we made during our planning. Karolina helped us every step of the way- she gave us constant updates, helped find our vendors, came to vendors meetings, and was easy to reach whenever we needed something or had questions about the wedding. She was present at our rehearsal and on wedding day to make sure that everything was perfect. On the day of the wedding, Karolina coordinated the deliveries, the arrival of all the vendors, made sure the decor was perfect and that we stuck to our schedule. I would absolutely recommend Karolina to my friends for the quality and value of her services.

Karolina did a wonderful job. My fiance and i were very impressed with Karolina's work. I used her services for the day of the wedding. She helped me with the timeline, confirming information with vendors, setting up my centerpieces etc. Her rates are also very resonable especially compared to other event planners out there. She returns emails promptly and overall there were no issues. I've already recommended her to one of my friends for her upcoming wedding. Job well done!

Karolina was our day of coordinator for our wedding back in June. She did an amazing job from creating a hour by hour timeline, coordinating with the other vendors, making sure everything was spot on, and so much more. She took care of all the details on that day so I didn't have to! Living in San Francisco, Karolina made it very easy to communicate through emails and was very helpful in suggesting location ideas since I couldn't be in Chicago. I would definitely recommend her services to anyone with an upcoming wedding!

About a month before our wedding we decided we needed day of wedding coordination. We did not have much time left when we decided to go with Karolina. Karolina was great, she immediately took action to make sure she knew everything about our wedding and our vision. We had already booked all our vendors, so she introduced herself to all of them/ made contact with all of them. She created a timeline for the day of, which I loved, she was very organized and very professional. Since most hispanic weddings tend to be more on the disorganized side, I felt organization was key. She did a great job of making sure we got everything we wanted out of the night. We were supposed to have Mariachis for cocktail hour, they showed up an hour late as we were doing the grand entrance. Karolina asked us what we wanted. We told her to have them leave as we no longer wanted there services, it was great to have her there to handle the situation so we could move on with our night. Karolina and her assistant Linda were great to work with, and the best value of everyone we spoke to.

Karolina is super sweet, organized, and very professional. We hired her as our wedding day coordinator but she was always available in the months before the wedding whenever I had any questions or needed any help.

Karolina performed many services for us including:
* helping find remaining vendors who fit our budget
* creating a wedding day timeline
* contacting all vendors the week of the wedding
* providing all vendors with the day's schedule
* providing a bridal emergency kit
* putting up and taking down the church decorations
* bringing floral arrangements from the church to the reception hall
* setting up miscellaneous decor in the reception hall

Even with all Karolina did for us, there were a couple of things that really impressed me the day of the wedding.

Right before the wedding, my mom wanted to change something in the ceremony. I started to get upset and would probably have gotten into an argument with her if Karolina hadn't been there. She spoke to my mom, calmly explained that changing things would just confuse everyone, and that was that. I would have hated going into my ceremony having just fought with my mother. Just having Karolina there to prevent that argument was worth what we paid her.

During the reception, I had a couple of mishaps with my dress and Karolina's bridal emergency kit came in so handy! My husband stepped on my dress and tore the ribbon that held my bustle together. Karolina had safety pins which she and my sister used to create a makeshift bustle that I think looked even better than my original one! A little while later, I noticed I had some sort of light stain on my skirt. Karolina used a Tide pen and got rid of it within minutes. Thanks to her, I made it through dinner to our first dance without looking like a mess!

I am so glad we hired Karolina for our wedding and would highly recommend her to anyone!

Dear Future Bride,

I am happy to give you nothing but my utmost recommendation that you book Karolina and book her now! I would like to give you a balanced review in which I tell you all the good things but also mention things to be wary of, but unfortunately I cannot-- I don't have a single negative thing to say!

If there is one thing in our wedding planning that was absolutely worth every penny (and more!), it was hiring Karolina on as our day-of coordinator. She is by far the most reasonably and affordably priced day-of that we've seen, and her dedication to your wedding cannot be matched (and will be apparent immediately). As far as "value for the cost"-- look no further! She is priced WAY below the "big name" (and not so "big name") coordinators, and her attention to every one of YOUR details will make you feel like you've gotten away with a steal! She never asks you anything twice-- she will know every detail of your dream and vision as well as you do!

While she is a "day-of" coordinator, her work starts the moment you hire her and she communicates with you and your vendors constantly up until the moment you say "I do." Her response time via email is almost immediate, and you never have to wait more than a few hours. In fact, she often emailed me reminders and such before I even had to contact her! I don't communicate very well over the phone, so I can't comment on her availability via phone, but if she is at all as attentive by phone as she is by email, you have will have no problem!

The timeline that she creates is very thorough and very helpful. She helped keep everything organized and moving throughout the wedding process. She actively communicates with all of your vendors throughout your planning and the day of your wedding, and I didn't worry about anything on my wedding day-- I knew she had it covered!

She is very friendly, and her demeanor is pleasant. This is a plus when she's dealing with wedding issues, as people feel comfortable around her and do not feel like they're being yelled at. She was punctual and professional, and was always there to help with "emergencies," even if it wasn't outlined in her job description (i.e. I forgot vase marbles and she was there with a full bag!!).

Overall, I highly highly recommend her as your day-of coordinator!!

Karolina did an amazing job the day of the wedding. We had planned an outdoor ceremony and, of course, it rained the day of the wedding. We had a small window of opportunity to get the ceremony and pictures taken outside and Karolina worked with the other vendors to make it happen. It was wonderful and everything worked out as planned. Karolina kept us calm and handled all the details of the day with professionalism. We didn't worry about the details and the bride/groom and parents of the bride were free to just enjoy the day...which we did!

All I can say is if I could give Karolina a 10 I would.
Karolina executed a very extensive list of vendors including Ceremony and Reception Venue/Catering,BAR/Linen/Officient/Floral/DJ/officient/ceremony musician/photogs/videography and the bride and groom AND OUR FAMILIES.
Karolina did an exceptional job with every element. At the rehersal when the officient did not have his notes, she pulled them out in a second for him. We were so Impressed. I was impressed with Karolina's organizational skills, her communication, her responsiveness, she just executed no less than one thousand details of the wedding PERFECTLY!!!!!! That is WITH PERFECTION. When she showed me the room, I squeeled with delight then cried. Karolina worked very very hard all night long and made no mistakes. If there were any problems I never heard about it, she handled it.
When I had moments of crisis during the plannning she was right there to help.
Although she was my DOC, she e mailed me on regular intervals throughout the planning process to see if I needed help with anything. Was always writing me with words of encouragement and excitement about our upcoming wedding.
Karolina is a very very organized, hard working, soft spoken consumate professional that is an expert in her field.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND KAROLINA TO ANY COUPLE FOR THEIR WEDDING.

She was extremely helpful and made our wedding day almost stress fee. Lastly, when things did not go as planned, she was able to professionally address and solve the problem to keep everything moving along. I can’t speak enough praise about Karolina’s services.

I hired Karolina as my Day-Of Coordinator and it was, by far, one of the best decisions I made. She was tons of help in the weeks leading up the event, helping me put together a schedule that would work well and getting all of our vendors on the same page. She even helped me find some replacement hair stylists when we had to part ways with ours three days before the wedding--definitely above and beyond her duties.

On the actual day, she got all of our decorations set up perfectly before we even arrived and made sure everything ran smoothly, even when our ceremony ended way early and things had to switched around. None of the guests ever knew anything was amiss and Karolina kept me very calm and sane through it all. I don't know what I would have done without her.

Karolina charges very reasonable rates for her services--we were on a very small budget and we were able to afford her and I'm so glad we got her. Karolina makes it possible for any bride, no matter how small the budget, to have a relaxed and worry-free day. Highly recommended.

As a very busy Resident Physician, I realized early on that planning my wedding for nearly 260 guests and over 15 vendors would be a dauting task. I knew that I needed someone whom I could trust to plan every detail of the wedding day, and execute my vision. Karolina exceeded those requirements. We met for the first time 14 months prior to my wedding day, and working with her for all that time was the key to my successful, seamless and beautiful wedding. We worked very well together because she is responsive to all my concerns, quick to take action, and acts as the Bride's advocate throughout the entire planning process. For example, unfortunately I had a few issues with 2 of the vendors that I selected. After Karolina had a talk with those vendors, they suddenly became very receptive to my concerns and accommodated my requests . Karolina has a bright, positive and likeable personality. But don't let her pleasant demeanor fool you. She takes care of business! She remained very focused, calm, cool, and collected on my wedding day. She worked feverishly behind the scenes to accomplish all my goals for the special day. Knowing she was in charge allowed me to truly enjoy the day. Your partnership with Karolina will be the best alliance throughout the process. She provides exceptional service, and you will not regret working with her.

Karolina was amazing! From the very first day we met with her she was on top of every detail of our wedding. We received regular emails detailing exactly what we needed to be focused on completing for that week. She worked with all of our vendors in order to ensure a stress free wedding day for us. On the day of our wedding Karolina was calm, organized, and professional. We could not have asked for a better planner. We will recommend Karolina to anyone and everyone that is in need of a wedding planner. Thank you so making our wedding one of the greatest days of our lives!

Sincerely,
Kris & Lauren Sustek

Hiring a day of coordinator was a great decision for our wedding. Although I believe I am an organized person and my fiance was pretty involved in the wedding planning, Karolina was still a huge help and helped us enjoy our day! She responded to emails instantly and offered a lot of advice for us. Handling speaking to our vendors the week of the wedding was a great relief for us. We had quite a few vendors and having a wedding downtown Chicago is difficult logistically but Karolina made it a breeze. There is so much going on the week before the wedding, it was so nice to enjoy it and spend time seeing out of town family/friends. The day of the wedding, Karolina and her assistant did many things like setting up decor, ensuring all the vendors arrived and were set up, helping at the ceremony, helping to box up my decor at the end of the night. I told my mom, hiring Karolina is my gift to you! In reality, if we didn't have her, it would be your parents/bridesmaids that would have to do those extra wedding "chores." I wanted my mom and bridesmaids to enjoy the day as much as possible.

Karolina is prompt, friendly, organized, and was a great vendor to work with. She is also a VERY good value for the price! Believe me, hiring her is money well spent. She allowed us to sit back and relax on our wedding day and just take it all in. I would recommend Karolina to anyone who asks!

Karolina was our wedding coordinator for our May 31st wedding. She was very responsive and was an invaluable resource. She helped review our wedding contracts and worked as our liaison with our venue doing the majority of back and forth communication with them. It was great to get her opinion on things. Karolina drafted a day of timeline, and took care of those small things on the wedding day that you don't really want to deal with like arranging place cards, setting up church decorations, getting my bridesmaids in line for the ceremony, etc. Plus, her rate can't be beat. She was great.

Karolina was a godsend!! My wedding was very complicated because not only did we have the traditional wedding with the white dress and black tie, but we also had to incorporate my groom's and I cultural customs. I am Korean and my husband is Thai so we had a Korean ceremony and a Thai ceremony!! There were many dress/costume changes with props galore and if it wasn't for Karolina handling all the details, I wouldn't have been able to enjoy our wedding. To add to the busyness of the wedding, due to weather and poor traffic conditions, our wedding started over an hour late!! Karolina took this into consideration and adjusted our timeline so that we can stay on track with all that was going on in the wedding. She was one of the most reasonably priced wedding planners out there and she was worth every penny. I would recommend her to any bride.

I contacted Karolina over a year ago and she has been helpful during the whole duration of the wedding planning. We live in Florida and had our wedding in Tinley Park, IL. She ensured my husband that we will remain on budget, which satisfied and calmed him. We had a great time working with her. Her remaining vendor recommendations were spot on and we were pleased with her great contacts. She made our day stress-free and flowing. She adjusted the timeline as needed without any problems. We strongly recommend having a wedding planner and Karolina is your lady. Your maid of honor, family and friends will thank you. They all thanked me since I hardly asked for their help during the whole wedding planning and day of process.

Karolina was very helpful in serving as a day-of coordinator for our wedding. The questions she asked us in advance and attention to detail were very helpful. Only comment in general is that we'd like to see a little more interaction between the coordinator and the photographer as there was a hiccup (very minor) in our timeline that we could have addressed if we had known in advance. (Reminder to all brides: Make sure that the people who are helping you dress are in their full wedding attire before helping you! We lost about 20-25 minutes in our timeline.)

Our destination wedding in Chicago was perfect. Karolina took care of every single detail during the ceremony and reception, she made our guests feel comfortable and knew how to interact with them (60% of our guests came from outside the US).

I only gave her 4 stars in Professionalism because our reception was at the Peninsula Chicago and I do prefer business formal attire rather than business casual attire.

Karolina was awesome! She was so calm and collected on the big day that she was a joy to have around. She is very detail oriented and she was able to execute some really amazing setups in a short period of time. As a ratherparticular bride, I was worried about someone setting stuff up for me, but she did everything to my exact speicifcations. She was also able to give input during the planning process without seeming pushy - and she had some good tips. She's a great value and she is a wonderful person to have around you on the big day.

I adored karolina and would highly recommend her but not for a heavy orientated do it yourself wedding as mine was.

I was happy with her responsiveness to whatever questions i had via email...she was very quick....I never felt I could not get a hold of her.

Her personality is wonderful , I got along with her very well

The only problem I had with her was I was a VERY do it yourself 2nd time around bride who had a vision for my wedding and ...after all was said and done...was very dissapointed in Karolina's ability to carry out my vision and do the set up as we had discussed in DETAIL prior to the wedding.

I was very dissapointed that a large part of my decorations were never even un wrapped from the boxes and displayed as I had wanted and also the centerpieces were not set up as I had intended.

I had given her in detail pictures of my centerpieces and also all the boxes of "centerpiece" props were labeled and maked specifically for all the tables......

hundreds of dollars worth of centerpiece parts went unused and unwrapped....many projects that were hand made went unwrapped and un used....

a wedding is a once in a life time......sometimes as I was you get lucky and finally marry the man of your dreams and it is a 2nd marriage.....but non-the less...i look back and feel dissapointment every time I look at a photo of a table setting that wasn't as I wanted....

I feel as if my dream wedding is still a dream...it never came to life

Throughout our time with Karolina, she was very unorganized, forgetting many details that had already been discussed. We spoke to her a few times about her lack of organization, but she didn’t seem to correct it. Karolina may need and assistant as she seems too busy. I wrote out all of the details so she wouldn’t forget and I also provided the venue with a copy as back up.
Karolina did not seem comfortable with conversing via phone so it was difficult to reach her. She sent long emails, ignoring our preference of communicating via phone due to our busy work schedule.
Karolina’s true lack of organization was obvious during our wedding rehearsal, as she did not know what to do. Everyone was lost because she didn’t bring copies of the ceremony schedule. It was very embarrassing for our wedding party and the venue staff to keep telling us how unorganized, overwhelmed, and how much of an amateur she looked, and how rude she was to them when they asked simple questions. I explained to Karolina that she was unorganized and everyone could see it. She stormed off screaming “I am organized. I am organized”, which was one of the most unprofessional and bizarre moments I have ever experienced.
Karolina disappeared many times during our almost THREE hour rehearsal, leaving us to figure things out. She left without apologizing or even saying bye to me. The rehearsal put us behind 2 hours, which forced us to cancel our welcome reception for out of town guests. We had to be the mediator for some issues Karolina and our vendors had. Our makeup schedule was thrown off because Karolina lied about sending the wedding day timeline to our makeup artist.

UPDATE TO KAROLINA'S COMMENT: Her comment about us firing “many wedding coordinators and florist” IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE. Not apologizing for how much stress she gave us, as SPECIFICALLY cited above, not addressing her performance, and completely making up lies, truly shows her true colors. You be the judge.

I'm sorry that you weren't a satisfied Bride Latoya. Hiring and firing many Wedding Coordinators before me, firing florists, it seemed that nothing could make you a Happy Bride. Good Luck to you in the future!
