Everlasting Memories by Char
Please do not go with this wedding planner! First of all we signed a contract with her and 2 hours later we talked about it and decided to do it ourselves. She would not let us and threatened to take us to court. She also told my fiancee to grow up which was uncalled for. As far as service goes she did not do anything for us and charged 1500$, she went on vacation twice while we employed her, and the most she ever did was introduce us to a good florist. On the day of the wedding it was completely unorganized. She did not give any direction, didn't have our parents lite the unity candle, and worst of all was very rude to my brother in law. She had the nerve to tell him he was single handedly ruining the wedding. Please do not go with her she is the worst planner you will ever find.
Vendor response to review
I have been in business a long time and this is the only time I have had a complaint. Really makes me sad, to try to help a couple only to have this on my reviews. We really do try to make the day as wonderful as possible. Sometimes, you just can't please everyone as much as you try.
I would HIGHLY recommend Char for your wedding planning and organization. Char helped us from the major details (decorations, lighting, music, table settings, setting up the ceremony and reception sites, transportation of wedding party and guests) to the smallest of details (from iced bottled water at ceremony to the napkin folds on the table). As a bride, I did not have to worry about anything the day of the wedding because Char took care of it all!
Don't bother interviewing other wedding coordinators - Char is the BEST!!!!!!!
Char is a great coordinator! As the president of the Association of Bridal Consultants you know she has to be very organized to keep up with all of the group's events & members, and she does a wonderful job doing just that. Every wedding needs a professional coordinator so the bride & groom (and their parents) can relax and really enjoy the day knowing that all the many details are taken care of. I always recommend Char to my brides because I know she is one of the best coordinators in the state, has a ton of experience, and will do her best to make the wedding day better for everyone!
Char is simply the best and most experienced wedding planner in the business here in Colorado. - That says it all. I work with her a lot and I love to work with Char. A wedding day planned by Everlasting Memories by Char is all about the bride and the groom, never about the wedding planner. On the day of the wedding Char and her team are the silent observers, always ready to jump in, when something needs a helping hand.
Weddings by Char are perfectly choreographed before the wedding day. Everyone knows his place. For me as photographer it is important that I have the space and the time to create memories for my clients that last a live time. Keeping this in mind, Char provides a perfect workspace for me to do so. A well planned wedding day is all about the team-play of all vendors involved in the wedding. Char is the best coach you can hire for this job.
Char is one of Colorado's premier wedding and event planners and it shows in the happy faces of her clients. I have worked with Char as a photographer and believe me when I say the fruits of her labor are evident in the photos. Everlasting Memories by Char understands that there is nothing so valuable on your wedding day as peace of mind. Highly recommended!

What will a Bridal Consultant do for me?
In addition to helping make your wedding dreams come true within your budget~~~ and perhaps saving you from costly mistakes~~a consultant will save you time. With today's hectic lifestyles, many bridal couples and their families do not have the time for the detailed planning and work a beautiful wedding requires. A professional consultant, working with you, can handle the details, allowing you the freedom to do what you want to do.
Can I afford a Bridal Consultant?
A wedding consultant is part of your budget, not an extra expense. If fact, you often save maney because a consultant suggests less expensive alternatives that still enhance your wedding. Consultants, often can obtain discounts from suppliers. Above all, the professional consultant will work with you to produce your dream wedding, including the consultant's fee, all within your budget.
What qualities should I look for in a consultant?

Do I need a Bridal Consultant?
A consultant will be a distinct asset as you plan your wedding. Wouldn't it be nice to spend time with your fiancé and your families, rather than worrying about all the details of your special day? A consultant will take care of the details, leaving you to have the fun. And, on your wedding day, you can shine as the star, while your consultant works behind the scene to make it all happen.
Your wedding day is a special day in your lives......remember to look around at your wedding~~ Relax and enjoy your family and friends. It truly is a once-in-a-lifetime-day!
