First of all, if you are looking for a wedding planner, just stop now because your search for the perfect planner is finished! HIRE BIG DAY CELEBRATIONS! Katie is absolutely amazing and she and Joe are an awesome team. She is the perfect combination of bubbly and optimistic while always remaining a calm, profession problem-solver that covers all bases.
We hired her as a day of coordinator, but honestly that package is more like a month of coordination. On top of normal day of coordinator duties, she was there constantly helping answer questions, sending out reminders of all the little things that needed to be done by the bride and groom (like when its time to get your marriage licence, etc), and was there for emotional support phone calls when needed (hello family wedding stress <3). Not only did she figure out all the floor plans for vendors, dining tables, etc but she was also there helping to set them all up, putting out all my DIY decor and collected all our cards, gifts and helped clean our personal decor items at the end of the night.
Furthermore, let me just say my family is a little CRAZY and working with them at times is like herding cats. Katie had everyone where they needed to be, had us organized and even when things were thrown at her last minute, she handled them perfectly and calmly with grace. Even my photographer made a comment about how Katie was one of the nicest and easiest to work with planners that she has met.
One of my biggest regrets about planning my wedding was not having a wedding coordinator for the entire process. If you are on the fence between a day of coordinator and a full planner, I HIGHLY suggest talking to Katie about it. She is very open and honest and will give you realistic advice. At the least is is imperative to have a day of coordinator and Big Day Celebrations is 100% the best choice that I made for our big day. She truly made my vision and wedding dreams come through. I do not think I could have done it with out her. Thank you so so so much Katie and Joe!
