Another Wild Hare was one of the best decisions I made regarding my wedding (perhaps second only to choosing the groom). I was dragged to a wedding convention by my best friend where a sea of vendors were peddling services from catering all the way through to honeymoon planning. I haid no intention of partaking in anything the salon had to offer, when I noticed Another Wild Hare's table in the event planning section. It was the beautiful layout and general aesthetic of their table that sold me. I knew they could achieve the look I was going for in planning my wedding.
From my first meeting with Another Wild Hare they struck the perfect balance of professionalism and comfort you hope to achieve with someone planning your one and only (hopefully) wedding. We sipped champagne and discussed what I wanted (a vintage circus wedding) and ideas immediately began flowing.
They found our venue and our band and through their connections got us exactly who we wanted and at a fair price point. They did our floral for us! And our invitations! Ever the professionals, they provided us with competitors samples and pricing but in working so closely with them, AWH turned out to be the right choice. They knew exactly what we wanted BECAUSE THEY LISTEN. So many people in this industry have preconceived notions of what you should be ordering but Another Wild Hare's staff includes so many talented people that can help you shape and improve your vision of the day by listening to what you want and building on it. You hope that the day goes smoothly, but unfortunately that was not the case at our wedding. We encountered a catering meltdown (the only vendor we chose without the help of AWH!) and we were able to see how the planners handle pressure. They kept things from coming apart at the seams. But what AWH did the best was the aesthetics. It is their forte. Our vintage circus themed wedding had a contortionist and juggler (which AWH found) performing at our cocktail hour. There was a popcorn machine with seasonings made by their staff and a cotton candy send off. Inside our tent hung umbrellas and dynamite lighting (that we decided on the DAY BEFORE - and they made it happen). Our photobooth had the most elegant handmade masks and props, all the type of detailed, classy work you can expect in hiring Another Wild Hare.
Leah and Another Wild Hare were amazing! We needed a wedding planner because we would never have found the time to plan the event, but we went into the planning with an EXTREMELY limited budget, considering that we wanted to invite about 120 people. Leah found us a venue --a STUNNING new venue that was still under construction and therefore willing to give us a great deal. Leah and Danielle felt like partners throughout the process, trying to figure out not just what we wanted, but who we are as people. They totally understood the style and feeling we were aiming for. And they made the process fun with their humor, good nature, patience, and positive attitude. Whenever either of us felt nervous or stressed about any aspect of the planning, we always felt reassured and calmed after speaking with Leah or Danielle. The day felt absolutely magical and everything ran smoothly --which was no small feat. Because we were on a limited budget, we were working with 5+ vendors (2 food trucks, appetizers that needed to be picked up from elsewhere, coffee and cake delivered separately). They pulled it all off without a hitch. We can't recommend their services highly enough!
I think the highest praise I can say about Another Wild Hare is that we only heard about one thing that didn't go as planned during my wedding - because they took care of everything else. And the one thing that I did hear about was a difficult situation that AWH handled well, involving our caterer's time mis-management. We hired AWH for day-of planning services and even though we knew they had several full planning clients, we felt like we got the attention and responses we needed. I would recommend AWH to any bride.
We worked with Leah and she helped us last minute to put together the details for our wedding. I had decided that I didn't want to hire a wedding planner or coordinator, but a week before my wedding I realized I needed some extra help. Leah helped by making the escort cards, created a seating chart and table layout. She also helped me develop a timeline and communicate to my vendors. She took a lot of weight off my shoulder while staying in communication with me. I was so happy to have her help. I was able to enjoy my wedding! Thanks!
We had a very small HIndu/Christian wedding of 50 people in Brooklyn. Leah was our Day of Coordinator. She took care of communicating with our venders and made sure that the day ran smoothly. We had no idea that one of guests ended up brining an unexpected date. Luckily Leah had ordered an extra place setting and chair so that the date had a place at a table. Leah was always thinking about the worst case and this saved us! Another Wild Hare is a great business and the staff are very down to earth and knowledgeable.
Another Wild Hare helped me plan my wedding for 124 guests in manhattan. They were great. They worked very well with friends of mine who are in the business and created a perfect affair. Our wedding was amazing and stress free. They negotiated with the caterer, the only vender we didn't know, and they saved us $3,000. So in reality Another Wild Hare's service would have paid for itself if we had needed to use venders we didn't know. I was hesitant to pay for their service as the price seemed like a lot more than i could afford. Little did I know all the things they would end up doing for us and the money they would save us. Thanks again!
A wedding planner needs to be a few things:
Another Wild Hare’s Team was amazing! I had a very clear vision for my wedding. I wanted a glamor filled, crystal and glass wedding. We had 180 guests and had a budget of $80,000. I had meet many planners who had 20 plus years of experience, but they just didn’t seem excited about working with us. They seemed more interested in the money than anything else. Leah was very prepared for our first meeting. She remembered everything I had told her. She had created a vision board based on what I told her. She listened to me and put me at ease. She didn’t even ask me about my budget! She valued our business for the excitement of the event and didn’t seem to be in it for the money. In fact, they charge a flat fee regardless of your budget so for us Another Wild Hare was a great value. Another Wild Hare will be planning our New Years Eve Party!
We were really hesitant to hire a wedding planner, but we both work in banking and don't have the time or energy to put into the wedding planning process. We loved working with Another Wild Hare. We told them our vision and they created it! We wanted a modern decor, but we wanted to have our wedding at a historic home upstate. Leah worked to blend our modern tastes with the venue’s history and made sure our wedding was perfect! I highly recommend Another Wild Hare. They were a great value and it was money well spent.
