Ashlee was amazing!! I would recommend her and Rachel events to anyone!! We received several compliments from our guests about her and her assistant Lyndsay. They made the day go so smoothly. I don't know what I would have done without them.
Meg and Sarah with Rachel Events helped me complete last minute details for my wedding and reception. They also handled last minute issues that arose.
First and foremost, these ladies were professional, positive, gave great ideas and were attentive to my needs. They were wonderful and made me feel so less stressed about everything.
Would definitely recommend to any bride.
I have personally known Rachel with Rachel Events for several years. Her and her team were instrumental in ensuring our wedding day and the months before went as smoothly as possible!
Every meeting and the countless emails were welcomed with support, insight and guidance. No matter the size of your wedding, having Rachel and her girls apart of the process is a wonderful and much-needed idea!
The value of having Rachel Events assist in any planning needs will allow for the bride, groom and their families to enjoy moments often missed. Very grateful to have worked with a long-time friend and dedicated/passionate planner... highly recommended!!
Our wedding was absolutely flawless thanks to Rachel! She went above and beyond to make our day a dream come true. Her vendor choices were phenomenal! She is the most creative person I have ever met. She handled everything so I was totally stress free. Every time a problem arose, Rachel always had an instant amazing solution! Our wedding is still the talk of the town thanks to Rachel and her incredible wedding planning skills! Definitely use Rachel Events for your wedding! Love ya Rachel!!!!
Rachel takes her job very seriously. She wanted nothing more than to make my day perfect and keep me from stressing out!!
We were blessed with the most amazing wedding on May 5, 2012! Rachel was beyond wonderful and extremely instrumental in the planning process. She has such a creative side and is more than willing to assist you with ideas to help make your wedding perfect for you! Rachel has connections with the BEST vendors too!!! We loved everyone we worked with from invitations, DJ, photo booth, and photography. On our wedding day I had no worries of how the ceremony or the reception would be. Rachel is so organized and methodical in her planning that I knew it would ready and absolutely beautiful...and it was beyond my dreams! Rachel and the Rachel Events team are FABULOUS! I can honestly say that my wedding would not have been what it was without a wedding planner, the best wedding planner in Dallas!!!!! The service is worth every penny!!! We love you Rachel!!!!!
Rachel was the best thing that could have happened to my wedding! She was responsive, creative, organized, and more than anything very fun and easy to talk to. I could email her about anything and she would either take care of it or point me to a great resource. I was not stressed out at all on my wedding day (how many brides can say that?!) and even have a friend who immediately hired Rachel after seeing how smoothly my wedding went. I would absolutely recommend Rachel Events!
Where should I start a review for Rachel at Rachel Events?
First, let me tell you that I currently live in Seattle WA but my fiance is from Dallas TX and I am from Louisiana. Our families and most of our friends are there so naturally we wanted to have our wedding at HOME. Problem was that I needed someone that I could trust to take my vision and run with it. I would need someone to be my eyes and ears, someone to pretty much plan EVERYTHING because it just wouldn't be possible for me to fly in from Seattle every time there were flower arrangements that needed to be approved or a cake that needed to be tasted. I found Rachel Events online and called right away. I told her that she would have to be my "go to person" for all things wedding, and she said she could do it! I now know that it must have been destiny or fate...
Rachel Events went above and beyond for us, and they were worth every single penny! Rachel Events was the very first vendor we booked; Rachel and the Rachel Events team were the most amazing source of information and support. The consistent positive attitude, passion and excitement were infectious. Rachel made the wedding planning experience enjoyable. Her attention to detail and wealth of knowledge is invaluable with suggestions of themes, colors, decor, food, and even attire. Rachel not only listened to my ideas, she also heard me. Rachel and her team managed to take my thoughts and create a beautifully designed (and impeccably styled) event.
My wedding was more beautiful and enjoyable than I had ever dreamed of, and it is all because of the dedication and hard work of Rachel Events. They are committed, talented, and made sure that every single aspect of our wedding weekend ran smoothly and perfectly. Guests are still talking about how beautiful and amazing the entire event was.
I feel so lucky to have found Rachel Events and to have worked with them. Thank you Rachel Events!
We hired Rachel for her day of coordination services, which is really much more like a month of coordination package. She was absolutely INVALUABLE for me as a bride planning from out of town; the majority of our vendors were booked through her recommendations and all of her vendors were wonderful!
Rachel was always upbeat, excited, and I truly believe that kind of positive energy around you is exactly what a bride needs on your wedding day. She kept the entire day running smoothly and my new husband and I are still in awe of our wedding day and how much we and our guests enjoyed it. With her handling any problems that arose, we were free to enjoy the moment. We even had a friend of the family comment that, "I don't know what you paid her, but she was worth every penny!"
Bottom line: no matter what your wedding vision is, Rachel can and will make it happen. She is hands down some of the best wedding money we spent and I would do it again in a heartbeat. She's awesome!
Kate did a quality job of organizing our wedding the day of. She was all over the place putting people where they needed to be and addressing family members that needed certain information. She was very assertive, which helped move things smoothly and promptly, just as we wanted.
As a team, Rachel and Kate were responsive and flexible with their time. It was apparent that they are both very busy, as our initial meeting with them seemed a bit rushed, but I was appreciative that they took the time to listen to specific details that were important to me. Overall, I felt like they did a quality job and were professional.
We hired Rachel as our Day of Coordinator after she posted a special rate on her blog. I had been going back and forth about the practicality of spending precious wedding money on a planner or DOC, but her discount tipped the scales. From the moment we signed the contract, I knew we had made the right choice. Rachel was extremely valuable throughout wedding planning, providing not only vendor recommendations but also general advice and help when we ran into problems with bad vendors. We didn't always go with a vendor from Rachel's list, but it was so helpful to have her suggestions as back-up or as barometers for what we should expect.
While most of our decoration elements were a collaboration between myself, the Atrium staff and Di Fiori, Rachel executed our final details perfectly and went above and beyond perfecting the lobby with our extra decorations. I have no doubt that this woman is creative. Rachel is also ferocious in her loyalty to her clients and has an unmatched problem solving attitude. She coordinated the rehearsal, vendors, and wedding day schedule with authority and still managed to get out on the dance floor during the Cupid Shuffle. End the end, Rachel Events is worth every...
Rachel was a life-saver. I don't know how any bride could plan a wedding without a planner. My wedding was PERFECT!! She was very fun to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone.
Very organized and keeps the reception running VERY smoothly!
Rachel of Rachel Events was the first and only wedding planner that we met with. As we drove home from that meeting, my (then) Fiance said we didnt need to meet with anyone else.
Rachel "got" us. She not only understood the unique and different wedding we envisioned, she embraced it. She constantly had out of the box ideas and suggestions, and was able to make them work.
Turn around time for questions I had was never longer than a day or two, and almost always was just a few hours. Numerous friends mentioned how smoothly and wonderful the day went by, and how well-organized everything seemed. I can tell you, it didnt just "seem" that way, it WAS that way. Rachel kept our rogue groomsmen on time and in line, and I never worried or stressed about whether or not the DJ would be late or if the flowers would arrive on time.
Bottom line: Worth every penny. I would hire Rachel again, with no regrets.
Rachel provided a customized day-of-coordination package including bride and bridesmaid hair, and made sure that all the details I had planned and negotiated with my vendors came to fruition as I expected. As we got close to the big day, Rachel proved her real worth with invaluable guidance in my final detailing meeting with my venue and caterer, and expert handling of the family and wedding party at the rehearsal. She didn't even blink at the complex web of exes and in-laws, or the special handling needs they posed. On the day itself, it was Rachel who kept me calm as she also did mine and my 3 daughters' hair. I am a major control freak, and I was able to relax far more than I ever imagined - I had two tense moments, once when I saw lemons (I had ordered limes) being placed in the water glasses and once when I thought my 17 year old would never be happy with her hair. Rachel managed both of these situations firmly and confidently, allowing me to fully enjoy the beautiful day with my new husband!
Rachel did a great job overall and helped me immensely in planning my wedding. She pointed me in the direction of great vendors that I wouldn't have known about otherwise. She also helped me design and carry out my vision for the day. Most importantly, she made the wedding day itself stress-free. I didn't have to worry about decorating or last-minute details because Rachel was there to take care of it. My wedding day was everything I wanted it to be, and Rachel helped make that a reality! I'm very glad I hired her.
The first time we met with Rachel we knew she was the wedding planner we had been searching for...She immediately starting talking about our wedding and throwing ideas out before we had even officially hired her!! We had no idea of what we wanted in a wedding and Rachel stepped right into the planning process with us. Rachel is incredibly creative and talented in what she does and has no shortage of awesome vendor recommendations!
When our wedding day arrived Rachel and her team were there by my side when I needed them and trust me when I say she is there for the bride and groom! She is so sensitive to your needs and makes things happen!! What more could you want in a wedding planner?? It was such a beautiful day and we have Rachel to thank for it.
When I first started planning my wedding, I knew I couldn't do it alone. After my first meeting with Rachel, I knew I was in good hands. She is very outgoing, organized, and creative. Every vendor she referred us to was absolutely wonderful! My wedding could not have been so beautiful and perfect without her and her team! The day of the wedding, everything went so smoothly and everyone had a great time! People are still raving about how beautiful and fun it was. Thanks Rachel and Mandy for making my special day so perfect!
Rachel made my wedding day a breeze and any questions or problems that came up she was very quick and responsive on a solution. She is AMAZING!!!!!
Hands down, Rachel is amazing! I could not have asked for someone better to help us out with our special day! Rachel Events has my vote and my recommendation anytime. Thanks Rachel!
After the excitement of getting engaged simmered, we started looking at the very small budget we had for our wedding.
A wedding planner was definitely the very last expense I thought we needed to spend money on considering what we had to work with financially.
Problem was I had absolutely no idea where to start considering the limited budget.
Starting out on our own was so overwhelming. Beginning with the venue, every place we looked at was well over our limit.
Lucky for me I was engaged to a guy with connections in the wedding world. He just so happens to be one of Rachel Events go-to dj's.
So Rachel Events was a given for us.
I, however, was a little hesitant at first thinking our budget was going to be impossible to work with. Little did I know the magic that Rachel has in her designer pockets.
The first time we met with her all my insecurities vanished.
She took one look at our budget and what we were wanting for our wedding, smiled at us and said, "This is so do-able!"
Plans were in motion right away.
Before the meeting was over we had an appointment to visit a venue that very day, dates set up to meet with a florist and a bride-to-be that was so much more relaxed.
The connections that Rachel has are incredible. We would have never been able to find such professional, quality vendors that were willing to work with us without her.
Even with our limited funding we had the wedding we wanted because of the work Rachel did and the vendors she knows.
From first meeting to final congratulatory hugs as we were departing from the wedding, Rachel truly seemed so excited to work with us and help us make our day memorable. I think that was the best part of having her as our planner, the energy and excitement she had for us. She definitely wanted to help make our special day unique and all about us.
Going back to that first month of being engaged, being overwhelmed with the whole wedding planning process I may have had my doubts about hiring a wedding planner...
But hiring Rachel Events, absolutely no doubts at all.
Rachel has excellent ideas and contacts in Dallas. If you have idea she can bring it to life. She's works hard and makes herself available for all questions and concerns around the clock.
Rachel was a perfect day-of planner for my wedding. She helped with preparations many months before the event and was very knowledgable. On the day of the event I was not worried at all and didn't even bring any of my vendors phone numbers as I entrusted her to handle everything. Everything ran VERY smoothly and when hiccups arouse she was on top of it. Our transportation for the wedding party from the church to the reception broke down, but the event was not affected at all. Rachel worked with the company to get another bus there asap and arrived right in time. The bus company did not charge me anything for the event either! I had many comments from friends and family that the wedding ran better than any other wedding than they had been to.
Also, another great thing about Rachel was her personality. I knew I wanted a planner that was going to be fun and laid back, but also get the job done. She was just that. All of the wedding party thought that she was a lot of fun. Rachel was able to get everybody to do what they needed to do without coming off as snippy or demanding.
Rachel also helped give me advice on how to handle some akward dilemas that came up with people in my wedding party. Her advice worked wonderfully!
I would definitely recommend Rachel to anyone who is looking for someone to help take away all of the stress on the wedding day. It was the best money that we spent out of the whole wedding!
Our wedding was so much fun and we have to thank Rachel for making our reception run so smoothly! Rachel is very organized, punctual and fun! I would recommend her to any bride that is wanting to have an exciting and unforgettable reception!!
Rachel is the best!! She has a creative touch that really helps you plan the perfect wedding! She has a great eye for what will make your wedding fabulous and she will help you with absolutely any detail you're unsure about. But most importantly, she will make sure that your big day runs smoothly and you won't have to worry about a thing so you can relax and enjoy your big day!
After much discussion with Daniel, it was finally decided that we needed to have a wedding, no matter how small or un-pretty it would be. I had given up the idea of having a beautiful wedding since we were on a super tight budget being in school and all. I browsed through wedding planning websites, trying to gather ideas to make the wedding at least...quaint. Although I'm not much of a girly girl to really care about flowers and colors, I still wanted something picture-worthy. Unfortunately, it only made me more hopeless! Then I remembered my friend Nathan had a sister who was a wedding planner. I checked out her website and fell in love with her ideas. I've always known Rachel to be fabulous and chic from the way she dressed and the way her energy spread when she around people. I was able to get in contact with her, and to my relief she began by saying, "You're going to have a beautiful wedding!" Rachel is able to picture things in her head. Her experience with flowers, colors, and tiny details make her a very proficient wedding planner as she is able to combine the ideas to create something impeccable. Let me just say there were a few disagreements throughout our planning, but they were only because I couldn't picture in my head what she was talking about! She knows what she's doing! Given the short amount of time (2 months), Rachel successfully introduced each piece of the wedding planning in a timely fashion! After figuring out my style in only one session, she brought me to a venue which had me sold immediately. She not only encouraged me to voice my ideas, but polished them making me proud to even have thought it. Also, I can't forget to mention she created the most beautiful bouquet known to man. I was truly blown away when I saw the result of our planning. There seemed to be many components to the wedding, but I could only visualize it through the scribbles and sketches Rachel drew for me during our meetings. Needless to say, Daniel and I were extremely pleased with her help. We couldn't have done it without her!! Thank you, Rachel! We hope God blesses your work and you continue to add joy to people's lives as you have done for us.
Rachel was great! She was extremely helpful with the decorating and planning and she is VERY organized. Everything went so smoothly that my mom and I didn't have to worry about a thing. I will definitely recommend her to my friends!
Before Chad and I even got engaged, we had begun to plan our wedding. We had a clear vision of what we wanted....from the theme, color and overall feel of our special day, down to the personalized save the date cards I made myself. As we began the process of organizing our wedding day's events, it became clear that regardless of our organized personalities, we couldn't tackle this wedding alone. Enter Mrs. Rachel Phillips of Rachel Events. What a lifesaver! From the very first meeting she quickly understood what we wanted our wedding day to be about. We wanted everything to be as personal as possible...and she seemed excited about the task at hand. She reigned in our scattered vision....and helped us to create a unified and simply AMAZING day... She attended vendor meetings with us...kept in constant contact to ensure tasks were being crossed off our list...and quickly became not only a wedding planner...but a very dear friend. Our wedding day went as smoothly as we couldve ever hoped for...and I couldn't thank Rachel enough for a wonderful, wonderful day! HIGHLY Recommended!

Rachel ? you are a Rockstar and I appreciate all the help along the way! Everyone we have talked to (I mean everyone) said that our wedding was one of the best weddings they have ever been to and that every detail was perfect!!! I thought we were just going to have a ?Day of? Coordinator but you were SO much more and worth every little penny! You truly found your calling as a fabulous wedding coordinator!
Thank you for an amazing night that I will remember forever! MWAH!
**Testimonial from the Mother of the Bride:
We would highly recommend Rachel Events to anyone planning a wedding. Rachel?s help made all the difference in the world. We were on a budget and it was the best money spent---trust me. She called our attention to details we never knew existed, and she walked us through every step of the planning process.
She was always upbeat and friendly; she genuinely wanted my daughter to have the best day ever. From the first time we met with Rachel, we knew we were in good hands and my daughter and I didn't just get a wedding coordinator we made a new friend.
Rachel was a pleasure to work with, my only regret was that we should have hired her much earlier in the process! Rachel was incredibly organized had many great recommendations for vendors and was eager to give us tips on how to stay within our budget. I jokingly referred to her as my drill sergeant for the rehearsal/day of, and thank goodness for that! We had a some-what unruly wedding party and we definitely needed her help to keep focus. I will say for the first time ever, our best man was actually on time thanks to her! :) The only complaint I had was from my mom who said she was still really stressed out on my wedding day, but I truly don't think the Dalai Lama could have helped her in that department! Overall, I was very pleased with her services.
Rachel Phillips is the BEST wedding coordinator!!!! She has amazing style and is extremely creative! I was so happy with how our wedding turned out and I owe it all to her! Not only is she budget conscious, organized and efficient, she ensures that your day is exactly what you envision! :)
Ah, what to say about Rachel. She is just wonderful. She gave me and my husband a wonderful, beautiful wedding on a very tight budget. Rachel thought of things I never would have and gave me the most wonderful day of my life with little stress. She was there every step telling me what to do because I had NO idea what I was doing! She calmed me down when I cried over the wedding and fixed anything that went wrong. She made me laugh just about every time I talked to her. She is a wonderful person, an absolutely fabulous wedding planner and I would and will recommend her to anyone getting married. There is so much more I could say about her but I would suggest finding out yourself and giving her a call!!

Rachel is wonderful! She is creative and came up with excellent ways to make my wedding fabulous and still stay on budget. She kept me very organized and communicated with me through the entire process to make sure everything was going smoothly and to take as much off of my load as possible. She also solved problems that arose quickly and helped to alleviate my stress. I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone wanting an innovative and creative wedding coordinator.
Rachel Phillips is a fabulous wedding planner! I knew from the beginning that even though I am an organized person, I would not want to handle the stress of planning my wedding alone. I told Rachel what I wanted in my wedding and she made it happen, along with making it even more fabulous. Rachel is so creative and she did an amazing job on the decorations for both the wedding and reception! Rachel's organizational skills are outstanding and I never worried that things would not get done on time. She kept us right on schedule and right on budget throughout the whole process. She also did so great at helping us to get the absolute most out of our budget. I could not have had my dream wedding without Rachel and working with Rachel is money well spent I can guarantee you that! Thank you again Rachel, for all of your help and hard work to make our day so special!
I would like to praise Rachel Events. She is an amazing wedding planner. It almost seems the title is an understatement. I had the privilege to work with her to plan my wedding, and I'm so happy that I chose Rachel.
Rachel took all of the stress off of me. I NEVER worried about a thing because I knew that she would handle everything with poise and class.
The best thing I did was trust Rachel to make our day so memorable.
The end product...
It was truly a magical day, from the rose petal aisle to the farewell of my guests.
In conclusion, Rachel is truly a dream maker.
Rachel was amazing to work with. She is young, vibrant, detail oriented, sharp, fun, diligent, and motivated. I booked her because I knew there was no way I could handle the day of the rehearsal and the day of the wedding on my own. Little did I know she was going to be needed for a lot more. After finding out a month before the wedding that my wedding cake vendor went out of business 3 months after we booked them...I had to scramble to find a bakery. Rachel was there every step of the way. She helped calm any fears I had...she was always available for any questions I had. I feel she is WAY underpriced for the services she gave. Two thumbs up for sure!!
Rachel was an absolute God send!! She listened to my wants and needs and turned our wedding day into something my husband and I never dreamed of. She has an amazing eye for decorating and every detail was planned to perfection. Rachel is absolutely phenomenal and I would highly recommend her to any bride looking for a wedding planner. THANK YOU RACHEL!!!!!!
We had some big surprises from vendor's I had found myself, and Rachel came to the rescue. She completely re planned the Reception and Ceremony in only 10 days and it was better and less expensive than my original plan. She also connected me with amazing photographers, who took hundreds of pictures and every one was perfect.
Rachel is so organized, I didn't have to worry about a single detail. Everything flowed together perfectly, everyone where they needed to be, all the details came together for one magical day. I didn't have to get onto anyone's case or handle anything, Rachel was right there behind everything making it all work smoothly. I could have asked for better service or care!! Thank you, Rachel for making our big day so perfect!!
I just love working with Rachel because I know every detail will be handled. Every wedding I have worked with her and her team as gone seamlessingly. I just adore Rachel and how fun her events are.
The ladies of Rachel Events are always proactive in letting us know all the details of the event to come. They are easy-going and sharp from start to finish. We enjoy working with their planners and look forward to seeing them again soon!

I loved having her here this past weekend and look forward to her return in May. Rachel has a fabulous energy about her and truly loves what she does for a living!
Rachel is one of the most organized wedding planners I have ever seen! She has outlines and back up plan for everything. She literally handles everything for the bride. We are doing a wedding with Rachel in May and we have actually never spoken to the bride herself. Rachel is on top of us for getting the contract details and checks processed. She has timelines for the day of the wedding which is fabulous! As a PhotoBooth vendor its great to know when the guests are doing what and how the reception is progressing. I would highly recommend her to all our clients who do not posses the gift of organization and planning! Thanks Rachel for all that you do! We appreciate you!
Rachel Phillips truly shines as a wedding planner! Her attention to detail and creativity when it comes to impossible situations are amazing to witness. She is always two steps ahead, always has a plan and if the plan goes wrong she has a backup plan. If Rachel is in charge, there is no need to worry because she will make it happen and make it happen beautifully no matter what. As a photographer, it is always a pleasure to work with her because I know she has every moment of the day planned out and will always keep everyone right on schedule which makes it easier for me to do my job!
Certainly a joy to work with. Very professional, amazing attention to detail, especially awesome at reception decor!

Being a part of your biggest day is very rewarding to me. Whether you are an offbeat bride, or completely by the book, I will find a way to help you express yourself through your wedding! That being said, no wedding I plan will be the same. I am all about having fun on any budget. My favorite wedding words are intimate, personable, elegant, rustic, vintage, unique, and party (that’s a wedding word in my book)! Let me just say that I am *SO* ready to make your ideal dream wedding become a reality!
I would like to share a few random bits about me: I am very interested in vintage, DIY crafting, and fashion; I whole-heartedly judge a Mexican restaurant by their salsa and guacamole; but, the most important part of my life besides planning weddings are my two amazing dogs, Biz (Boston Terrier) and Royce (Lab/German Shepherd mix).

Heading up our Austin branch of Rachel Events!! Meet Ashlee Voda!
Where do I begin? Weddings are a thing of beauty, and each wedding completed truly is a representation of the couple. It’s crazy how much time I spend reading blogs, browsing through pictures, playing with layouts…and I never get tired of it! I want to work with you on making your special day unique to you.
I started my career in corporate event planning and promotions, and knew I loved working one on one with people. With several years of experience in planning under my belt, I took a course through AACWP to became a Certified Wedding Planner. I have to say that was the best move I have made so far. Weddings are by far where I feel the happiest. Each part that makes up this special day for you, is of utmost importance to me. Being in Austin (the best place on Earth), is ever inspiring in this industry. Friendly, Organic, Artsy, Out of the Box, Colorful, Simple, Extravagent venues, vendors, and ingredients that make one heck of an event!
I’m pretty easy going with a touch of OCD. In my free time you can find me socializing on a patio downtown, paddle boarding with my Yorkie, Brody, or curled up in my favorite chair watching trashy reality TV. I enjoy giving my work my all, but what I enjoy most is the friendships I make with my clients.

Ladies and gents,
Weddings are one of the most memorable times in your life and I want to make your vision a reality. I live to make clients’ unique themes come to life! I have a flair for classic vintage but love a modern twist; I’d love to collaborate with your style for any of your important life events.
I grew up mostly in a small town outside of Austin (Pflugerville) where I fell in love with the sport of Basketball. Over the years I have earned many individual accolades, but most importantly I earned a full scholarship to the University of Texas at Arlington. I graduated in 2009 with a B.A. in Psychology and earned my certification in Wedding and Event Planning. Currently enjoy working out, singing, dancing, traveling, eating out, and nights out with the girls. I have a substantial background in fashion thus I love to shop and accessorize with nail polish.
I am recently married to the love of my life, and I truly enjoy having my best friend beside me through everything. We recently purchased our first house together in Fort Worth, Texas. I love where I live and I love what I do even more; Proudly serving the DFW and Austin area.

Another reason for hiring a wedding consultant is because they can save couples lots of time by suggesting vendors for the bridal couple. As part of the wedding consultants duties, not only will he or she, find vendors that fit in that couples budget, but also ones with great customer service and talent to do the job right. Couples that rely on the Internet or the yellow pages often end up spending way more time than they should on their wedding and they take the chance that the vendor they hire won’t do the specific job that they need them to do.
One of the most important tasks for the wedding consultant is to serve as the point per for helping vendors get the information that they need to do their job correctly. Consultants communicate the couples needs and wishes, ensuring they get everything they ask for on the wedding day. Consultants also make certain that vendors are on time to set up for the wedding ceremony and reception, and in some instances, they even serve as mediators between family members, both old and new.
Couples shouldn’t think of wedding consultants as an extra expense, but instead as part of their entire budget. As part of your investment, the wedding consultant will work hard to make their client’s dreams come true (which is not always easy). However, no matter which wedding consultant you ask, they’ll always tell you that the best thing about their job is succeeding and watching their brides, grooms, and families have a wonderful time. So, if you are getting married and think you don’t need a wedding coordinator — think again. Hire Rachel Events!!
