Debbie McNairy Wedding & Event Planning
Debbie was very professional and did a great job making sure my friend's wedding went off without a hitch. From the point of view as a bridesmaid, she was wonderful with the bride and with the whole bridal party - great to work with!
Debbie was great, friendly, thought of things I would have never thought. She was amazing the day of the wedding and kept everything running smoothly.
I really appreciated her service.
My husband and I wanted to enjoy our daughter and son-in-laws big day and Debbie made it all possible. The whole wedding was outdoors and Debbie helped us every step of the way from scheduling the vendors (caterer and tent company were awesome) and being there from start to finish. Debbie is very warm, friendly, considerate and extremely professional. Steve and Roe DeRose
Debbie handled some facets of the wedding planning well and others not so much. I would not recommend her without caution. The day of the wedding she contacted a vendor without our knowledge or permission and told them to come 1 1/2 hours earlier than the time contracted for set up, when we alloed for set up time in our contracted fee. This resulted in an ugly situation at the end of the evening when we went to pay the vendor. Instead of a lovely end of our daughter's wedding it was very unpleasant due to her.
Vendor response to review
I apologize for the miscommunication between myself, you and babysitter, who by the way, was referred to both of us. I had no intention of interfering with the babysitter's hours or your contract with the sitter. Due to the stormy weather forecast, the outdoor ceremony was moved indoors. I called all the vendors, as part of my service, to inform them of the plan change. All the vendors cooperated, arrived earlier than originally scheduled, performed their set ups, and did sound checks so as not to interfere with the guests arriving for the indoor ceremony. They all worked within their contracts and did not charge extra for their added time.
I didn't think to call the babysitter until the last moment, because she was not scheduled until after the ceremony. On my way to the venue, I received a return call from the babysitter, saying she should come early to set up room. Due to the fact the babysitting room was across from the wedding area. I said OK…not thinking she would demand an additional fee, unlike the all the other vendors. As you know, I paid the additional fee too babysitter. I guess I may continue to pay as a result of the poor review.
Gillian's and Michael's wedding was absolutely a beautiful fairy tale wedding. You requested great vendors who could unfold a breath taking wedding. I am proud to have provided you with a fabulous team of 5 star vendors. We all worked together to truly provide an amazing elegant wedding your guests will always remember.
I take each success and any shortcoming to heart, wishing only to enhance every wedding. I am open to questions from readers of any of my wedding reviews.
Debbie MaNairy is the most amazing wedding planner ever. She is kind, easy to work with, very knowledgeable, experienced, hekpful, supportive and wonderful. Debbie is truly a joy to work with.
Debbie is an amazing person. She is caring, organized, and goes above and beyond to make sure that her brides have a flawless day. My husband and I were truly lucky to have had her assistance! From beginning to end, she helped us create the wedding of our dreams. We had so many ideas, and I guarantee that very few of our ideas could have been possible without her help. Some people might think that their moms or friends could serve as their "wedding coordinator." Personally, my mom didn't think that it was necessary in the beginning. However, after my mom saw all the work that Debbie put into our wedding, she had to agree that Debbie's services were definitely worth it, especially on the day of the wedding. She was an extraordinary help, always one step ahead of everyone else, and because of her hard work, organization, and dedication, our day was literally stress free.
She took time to sit down with me and discuss our wedding timeline on multiple occasions to make sure everything would go smoothly. She recommended some fantastic sights for taking pictures before our wedding, and she personally brought me to the sites to see them. She was simply fantastic and full of wonderful ideas and references! She made a dove-release dream into a reality (after weeks of research!) She helped us orchestrate a fireworks show at the end of our reception. She saved us from having a centerpiece catastrophe. We had collected a whole bunch of live fish for our centerpieces and they died the night before the wedding. Debbie was out early on the morning of our wedding picking up new fish for us from every pet store in town. She had an entire sewing kit that she used to fix my bustle when I danced out of it at the reception. The list goes on. All in all, Debbie was a complete wonder woman.
Seriously, if you have any doubts, get rid of them. Debbie is the best at what she does, and I wish that every bride could have her help.
If you are unsure about hiring a wedding planner, or trying to figure out whether it is worth the money, let me make this easy for you. It is worth every penny!!! Debbie made my life a million times easier. Wedding planning was not really my thing, and I work long hours, so knowing Debbie was taking care of everything allowed me to sleep at night. She did a fantastic job. She is extremely responsive and always has a smile on her face. The day of she was there for me every step of the way. When a gust of wind blew off my veil, she ran to fix it. She brought grapes and snacks for the girls while we were getting ready which was a really nice touch. Debbie is the best!!! Hire her asap and make your life easier!!!
Debbie was great. A positive, calming presence while attending to so many details, always quick to respond and reassure.
A wedding planner allows you to fully enjoy your wedding. Debbie spent alot of time with us, getting to know us and what we wanted. She handled every little detail that weekend. She saw an issue or a stress point and always had a solution. She made my daughters wedding exceed expectations.
Debbie was absolutely amazing. She was great helping us plan our Lake George wedding from Baltimore. Our wedding would not have gone so perfectly if it hadn't been for Debbie and her daughter helping with EVERYTHING. They kept us all calm and relaxed the entire day and made sure that we had a stress free, perfect wedding day.
My husband and I recently moved to Upstate NY-area and knew that we wanted our wedding to be at Lake George, NY. However, we had no idea where to start, let alone our extremely busy schedules. We decided to hire a wedding planner and stumbled upon Debbie’s site. We read the comments from previous couples and knew we found THE ONE! From day one, Debbie has been attentive, thorough, and completely flexible with our schedules. She introduced us to our photographer, DJ, venue, bakery, and even the company that produced our wedding invitations! And let me tell you, ALL of our vendors were AMAZING! I would not change one thing about our wedding and how smooth it went! Debbie was in the background the whole day making sure there were no bumps, no hardships – only perfection! I would highly recommend Debbie to any type of bride – from the “bridezilla” to the bride that has no idea what she wants for her wedding. Debbie will help you discover what you want for your perfect wedding and will respect and make every aspect of your wedding you want happen! Thank you Debbie for making my dream wedding exactly that – a dream!
Debbie was my wedding coordinator for my wedding in Queensbury. I now live in Boston and trying to plan a wedding from out of state was very stressful, but having Debbie made it more enjoyable. She was always available to talk to us and answer any questions we had. She coordinated blocking out hotel rooms for our out of town guests as well as suggested vendors for us to talk to. She could not have been more spot on with our florist and the band we chose! On the day of the wedding, Debbie went out of her way to make sure my bridesmaids and I had everything we needed- she even made a trip to the store to pick up sandwhiches & snacks when we realized we had forgotten to bring lunch while we were getting ready. From talking to other brides, we were told that there is always something that goes wrong on the day of the wedding, and to not worry about it. But with Debbie's help, our wedding was perfect and there was absolutely nothing that was out of place or that was different than we had imagined. We couldn't have asked for a better wedding planner!
We worked with Debbie on a wedding on Lake George, NY in May of 2012. It was a beautiful wedding and Debbie kept the day running smoothly. It's always nice to have a coordinator to work with and we would love to work with Debbie again!
Debbie McNairy is organized, calm, understanding and kind....all qualities that are vital in a wedding coordinator who needs to be the "go to" person for bride and vendors alike! Her background as a personal assistant makes her uniquely qualified to be that " listening ear" that takes it all in, then quietly goes about making everything happen, in a timely manner and with every detail in place. I have worked on several weddings with Debbie, and in each case, her calm competence just shines. I can't wait to work another event with her!
