We hired Lindsay the week of and WOW are we glad we did. I'm not sure what I was thinking not having a day of coordinator. I thought I could do it all then as I met with the manager of my venue and had final meetings with vendors I quickly realized I did not want to be the go to person. I also did not want any of my family members to be that person because I wanted them to enjoy the day as well. From the second Lindsay came into the picture I felt relaxed and way more comfortable with how the flow of the day would go. She is professional, honest, funny, high energy and everything else you'd want in the person there to make your day perfect. She instantly had a vision for my day and made it better than I could have ever pictured. Do yourself a favor and hire Lindsay. This is the best decision we made for our wedding!
I spent time reaching out to Lindsay M. Mackey, "Expert Planner" from
The Simply Elegant Group - I put expert planner in quotes because anyone who is even a decent planner would not confirm they had a coordinator available for your date (this is after she mixed up the dates in her initial outreach and I had to correct her) and then claim they do not have someone available after all. This is after I wasted my time scheduling a call and going through all the details of our wedding, then waiting a week without receiving any of the information requested. When I finally reached back out to her to follow-up (which is her job) she stated that she was waiting for confirmation of someone's availability and they were not available after all. Little pro tip- don't waste someone's time 3 months before their wedding.
Hiring Simply Elegant for our November wedding was the best decision I ever made. From our initial meeting with Ashely, we knew that Simply Elegant would be a great fit for us. These girls are all about saving YOU money and we saved enough using their preferred vendors to offset the cost of hiring them! We worked with Cait who was seriously amazing, and went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. We bought the "Day of Plus Package" which including 5 extra hours and was the perfect package for us. I cannot overstate how helpful Cait was to us, since she was there we didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. It was the most stress free wedding day ever! She took care of all the behind the scenes details to ensure our reception flowed according to plan. She worked with our wedding coordinator at our reception venue to ensure our venue was decorated perfectly, and it was more beautiful than we could have imagined. She worked with us a couple weeks before the wedding to create a detailed timeline, and helped us plan out little details we never would have thought of. She called all of our vendors the week of the wedding to confirm details, which took so much stress away from me the week of the wedding. She was present at our rehearsal, taking notes and handling any questions our families and friends had. She remained calm through the whole process, even as we added more and more responsibility to her plate. We saved a ton of money using their preferred vendors, and she even saved us money by offering to return our rental items to Festivities the next day so we could avoid a fee. My heart swells with gratitude when I think of how much she did for us. I highly recommend Cait and the Simply Elegant team, they are so worth the money and the discounts they offer with their preferred vendors ends up saving enough to offset the cost. It is so valuable having a professional on your team who knows the wedding business! Cait--we love you!!!
