Because of Emily I had a truly stress-free wedding day! Originally I thought that my "simple" Brooklyn wedding did not require the services of a wedding planner. I soon realized that I could either do everything myself, or I could actually enjoy my wedding day. Emily had so many wonderful ideas that I had never even considered. She was extremely organized and professional. When the wedding day came Emily tended to every last detail, both planned and unplanned. The next day my family couldn't stop talking about how helpful she was. I can't imagine what the day would have been like without her!
Emily kept me sane and calm from the moment she walked in the door! She keeps the all little details (payments to vendors, putting on perfume, making sure you bring lip gloss) and the big ones (keeping you on time, making sure the groom is ready, telling you when to GO down the aisle) so you don’t have to worry about any of it. I was a super-planner bride and had lists and itineraries detailing my day down to the minute, but I was able to let go of all of it once Emily arrived. From the pre-wedding pictures to the ceremony to the flawless reception, she kept us on track, kept me calm, and was never, ever flustered. I knew whatever I asked of her, she would take care of calmly and without missing a beat. I am 100% certain that my wedding would have had more than a few hiccups if Emily wasn’t there smoothing the way!
Emily saved the day! We had started with a coordinator who wasn't too involved. Four months before the wedding, we realized how "in trouble" we were! Spare the tears, but it was bad. Emily stepped in and in one weekend we were delighted to have not only transportation worked out, but tuxedos, hair, makeup and began to plan the ceremony. That got the ball rolling and it was amazing there out. She was prompt, had an accurate and realistic timeline and kept us on schedule. She was resourceful and had plenty of ideas. She listened and understood what we wanted. Day of, she took care of some glitches that are bound to happen at some point, but I never knew about it! What a gift to a bride?! To only have to worry about enjoying herself at her wedding. I cannot thank Emily enough.
Emily from EMILY events is fantastic! She is organized, creative, and super friendly to boot. She treats your wedding as if it is her own. She is very thoughtful and really wants to help you realize your wedding dream. I would get married all over again just to have her plan another great event.
EMILY events. For your perfect day.
Wedding planning is an exciting time. Getting engaged! Parties! Photos! Flowers! Friends & Family!
And a lot of little tiny details that can make or break your day. That's what I do. I'm there when you can't, to fix the hair before the family photos, and tell Aunt Ida she cannot ride in the limo. I keep everyone on schedule so you don't have to wear a watch.
