Hiring Brooke and her team from Tying the Knot was the best money we spent for our wedding. We hired Brooke for "day of" wedding services, which included speaking with all of our vendors, creating a wedding timeline, attending the wedding rehearsal and coordinating everything the day of our wedding. I knew I would be very involved with choosing all of our vendors and doing all of the planning so this was the perfect amount of help for our situation. We also got an hour of her time to use how we wanted and we chose to use it by having her attend our final meeting with our caterer. She asked the perfect questions!
Brooke ensured all of our vendors knew their responsibilities and where / when to show up. She helped me coordinate things like who needed parking, who required a hot meal, etc. to ensure I didn't miss anything with all of the contracts. She helped coordinate our rehearsal at the actual church (not the dinner) and she spent the day of with my bridesmaids and me making sure we were on time to everything. While we did pictures around the city, she went to our reception venue to ensure everything was set up correctly. The few (tiny) issues that did come up on the actual wedding day she handled without even getting us involved. It was perfect!
My parents were skeptical about having someone help us because they thought they could do everything I needed the day of the wedding, but I wanted everyone to be able to relax and have fun without worrying about all the details. Brooke totally won them over and they agreed afterwards that it was money well spent. We would absolutely recommend her to any of our friends!

Being an out-of-town bride, I knew that I needed a wedding consultant to keep myself organized and stres-free. As it turned out, Tying the Knot was recommended to me and I couldn't have been more lucky. I purchased the most basic package and it was just what I needed. After my first meeting with Brooke, I immediately felt relieved after my first meeting (you could actually tell in my face how relieved I was). Brooke (actual wedding consultant) reviewed my contracts, made recommendations for vendors, answered all of my emails/phone calls, was able to direct my crazy bridal party during the rehearsal and made sure everyting was perfect at the wedding (if something did go wrong - I didn't know about it). I would recommend Tying the Knot to any bride - they were wonderful to work.

If I could I would give tying the knot 10 stars. Brooke the wedding planner made my wedding not only amazing but unforgettable. If you want a wedding that others will be talking about for years than you should use Tying the knot. It was the best choice I made for my wedding. Brooke went above and beyond for me and my husband. If you want a stress free wedding than you should use tying the knot.

I have never seen the use of a wedding planner until my sister used one. Brooke and Christine from Tying the Knot are the BEST in the business! Brooke worked with both my sister and I and Christine worked with my sister the day of. They literally think of everything for you, know the guidelines and procedures for everything, and are at your beck and call for any question or concern. Not only do they help you through every step of your wedding and know the best and most affordable vendors, they serve as therapists through the whole process. My wedding went FLAWLESSLY and that would not have happened without Brooke. It's worth the little extra money.... if not full services, day of services are so affordable and SO necessary!
