Jodie Stansbury is amazing! She is so pleasant and so talented in what she does. When it came to planning my wedding, I had no clue what to do or where to start. As soon as I met with Jodie, I knew I wanted her as my wedding planner. She went above and beyond the whole year of planning and always responded to my questions quickly. She always put me at ease. She would meet with me anywhere and anytime I needed or wanted to. On the wedding day while I got to enjoy time with my girls getting ready and enjoying the day, she was downstairs putting together the wedding of my dreams. She recommended to me the most amazing vendors. I I was so happy with how they all came together and loved each and every one of them! My wedding day was everything I could of ever imagined it to be and more. I am so grateful for everything she did in making my special day perfect. She even took the time to steam all of the bridesmaids dresses for me the day of! She picked up lunch for my girls and I on her way to the venue so we could have something to eat while getting ready. There are a countless number of things like this that she did for me that I appreciated so so much! Her assistant came the day of to help and she was just as kind and helpful as Jodie was. They seem to be a great team! Jodie was worth every single penny and I am so thankful I had her and that she made my dream wedding come true!
Aisle ready is awesome! I had Jessica as my coordinator, she is amazing! Jodie came help on the day of too, they did great job decorating the venue and coordinating all the vendors and guests. I had a real stress-free wedding day because of them! Everything went smoothly with their help. Didn't realize the importance of wedding day coordinator until the big day! I would highly recommend their service! Jessica is such a sweet person to work with, I am so satisfied with the quality of her work!
Jodie is super spunky, passionate and fun to work with. She has such a love for what she does. I am a big dreamer and she was so straight forward with what I could get for my budget. She took my vision and tailored it to what I could afford. You can tell all of the vendors she works with really respect her and the work relationships are seamless. You really don't have to worry about anything other than picking from a list Jodie sends you which saves you so much time! We live in Wisconsin and had a wedding in Indianapolis and I could not have done it without her. She was able to work around my hectic work schedule to coordinate all of my vendor appointments. She is very flexible and was able to make my outside ceremony dreams come true even with 90% chance of rain. She was able to deal with my diva moments and really made my wedding day a dream come true. We can't thank her enough!
Words can't express how grateful myself and my husband were for Jodie! We moved across the country halfway during the planning process. Jodie picked up the pieces and managed to finish the planning with us not there (communicating via email and Skype). Everything turned out amazing and beautiful!! Jodie had everything under control, we just had to show up and have a good time! We would, without a doubt, recommend Aisle Ready to anyone!
Working with Jodie for my wedding was one of the best decisions I made! Our wedding went without a hitch, and my husband and I owe so many thanks to Jodie (and her day-of assistant) for that. Jodie was was responsive, friendly, and easy to work with right from the get-go. We got the "month of" package, but it felt like she had been through our planning all along the way with how thoroughly she went over our details when we met. She truly listened to us on how we imagined our special day, and made recommendations along the way to better help our wedding day run smoothly. I know myself, and I was bit worried that I would be stressed on my wedding weekend, but I was truly able to enjoy the entire experience and know Jodie had everything taken care of! I never had to worry about our vendors, decorations, or timeline because she had it all completely managed. 100% stress-free bride here! Jodie is extremely organized and professional and just a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Aisle Ready Events to any bride!
When my mother-in-law asked my husband and I what we would change about our wedding, neither one of us could think of a single thing and we owe it all to Jodie Stansbury and her staff at Aisle Ready Events!! We chose the full planning package for our NYE wedding because we had the vision but I have never planned an event on that scale and since you only get one shot I wanted to make sure it was perfect. I would suggest a wedding planner for anyone getting married and Aisle Ready Events is the best! Jodie researched and negotiated with our vendors and her extensive knowledge of the industry and Indianapolis made that process so much smoother. She was able to get us discounts and compiled the very best "team" of vendors that fit our tastes and style perfectly. We told her our vision and what she delivered was even better than we ever imagined. She has a very creative mind and an eye for detail that really impressed us. There were small details we never would have imagined that she threw out off the top of her head that made the overall feel of our wedding and reception seem very professional and beautiful. All of this while being conscious of our budget. Jodie also made the day of the wedding 100% stress-free for me and my husband and also our mothers. It seemed like she was in a million places at once and answering everyone's questions. I could go on forever. We seriously couldn't have asked for more. I would recommend Aisle Ready Events to anyone getting married and I wish Jodie all the best!!!
I cannot begin to describe all the wonderful things Jodie did to make our wedding such a success! In every step of the process she was the epitome of hard work and professionalism. My husband and I are both in the Navy and live in California. I am not from Indiana and the thought of planning a wedding from half the country away while my fiancé was deployed and my schedule didn’t allow me to travel was daunting. Finding Jodie was a life saver! The wedding would not have been possible without her. She kept us on track throughout the planning process and found amazing vendors that were not only perfect for our vision but within our budget! Jodie bent over backwards to work around our busy schedules. The wedding far exceeded any of my dreams and that was because of Jodie. When the day finally arrived, I was worry free because I knew Jodie had everything covered. I highly recommend hiring her. You could not go wrong!
Working with Aisle Ready Events and Jodie has been nothing but a pleasure. The organization, professionalism, and thoroughness towards each and every detail makes me recommend Aisle Ready Events to anyone for their wedding.
We were planning our wedding from 6 hours away in Huntsville, AL and were only able to make a couple trips up to do any wedding planning. Jodie was a huge help and I can't imagine doing this without her! She recommended some of the best vendors - our videographer, photographer, and florist were recommendations of hers and they were amazing! We booked our venue without seeing it first and she went and checked it out with my parents before booking. On the day of the wedding, Jodie was at the venue first thing in the morning and did an amazing job setting everything up just as we talked about. During the reception she made sure my husband and I had everything we needed at all times. I had absolutely zero worried the day of our wedding and that was one of the most important things to me. I can't think Jodie enough for all her help. Our wedding day was the best day I could imagine.
Jodie. was. amazing. Living in Alaska but planning in Indiana meant we were limited in what we could do face to face. She skyped, called, emailed, texted, pinterested whenever we needed her ( we have a 4 hour time change yet she responded quickly). She drove to every single possible venue location I thought I might like and recorded videos for us to be able to watch to select a venue ( we are talking hours of driving across indianapolis-westfield-zionsville-muncie just to record a few minutes of footage at each place). She gave us honest advice and input when we needed it and stepped back when we knew what we wanted. On the day off she-herself was running around physically making sure everything was done just right-shes not afraid to get sweaty to get the job done. She wanted our day to be special for us not because of the paycheck but because she has a heart for people and treated us as if we were her only clients and extended family. I give Jodie my highest recommendation- she is goofy, cheerful, honest, professional, and extremely talented at what she does. You can tell this is her passion.
Jodie is one of a kind. The best of the best EVER!!! I can not imagined our wedding without Jodie, she has gone above and beyond for our wedding at Scottish Rite Cathedral Indianapolis . I wasn't sure at first if we needed a wedding planner. We both have been working a lot but also wanted a perfect planned wedding. So we started looking for a wedding planner and found Jodie. After speaking to her, she made us feel so confident that she would made our wedding so perfect in every ways. We seriously thank you from the bottom of our hearts and for making our dream wedding came true. XOXO!
We hired Jodie shortly after we got engaged and had already secured several vendors ourselves. She came in and took over from there with planning help all the way through day of coordination. I really appreciated her personalized approach in regards to evaluating what we had already done and what we needed. A few other planners I interviewed were significantly more expensive despite the fact that we had already booked our venue, caterer, photographer. Jodie was great. She helped us stay on track with the calendar, vendor meetings, budget. She was available for questions/concerns when we had issues with needing a new DJ (she had someone in mind that was amazing, reasonably priced, and had done events at our venue before when our venue wasn't well known) as well as when we had issues with our catering company. Where Jodie really shines is in her day of coordination/styling. What I wanted most in a wedding planner was for me to come to the venue on the day of my wedding and not worry about anything, and that is exactly what happened. Our venue didn't have any coordinator with it so having Jodie was a godsend. She worked tirelessly the night before (at the rehearsal) and the wedding day to set up everything. It was so beautiful. More than I could have imagined. Even when we ran low on alcohol, her assistant ran out to get more. Jodie's day of expertise was worth the full amount we paid and she helped with so much more prior to the actual wedding day. Hiring Jodie was easily the best decision we made for our wedding, she truly made our day what we dreamed about.
Jodie was such an amazing help as the day of coordinator. I could not have left the wedding in better hands!! She is so professional, friendly, knowledgable, outgoing, and just completely awesome. She made sure every last detail was perfect and was able to let me just enjoy the day without any worry. I could not have asked for a better coordinator. I would highly recommend Jodie for a wedding planner or a day of coordinator. I am so thankful for Jodie! She is amazing!!
Jodi really helped us as the day-of planner, especially since we did our rehearsal the morning of. She helped keep all the vendor on track and made sure everything ran smoothly. She was able to address all the small hiccups/fires throughout the day and really helped us focus on just enjoying our big day.
Jodie seriously rocked for our wedding! Everything was such an ease knowing she was there. She even kept all the crazy groomsmen in line. :) Excellent job done!!
Out of State Bride and GroomReviewed on 12/31/2015 Jenni M
Jodie did an absolutely fantastic job planning our October 2015 wedding. Because my new husband and I are from out-of-state, we needed a local planner who would guide us through the entire wedding process, not just day-of coordination. We hired Jodie after interviewing five wedding planners in the Indianapolis area because we knew she was a good fit and would ensure our big day was perfect. She worked collaboratively with us, including us enough to make sure our vision came to life, but not so much as to overwhelm us. She kept our heads straight throughout the process to help us stay on budget as well as to make sure our priorities were met. The upfront timeline and budget that she created for us was useful and she made our pre-wedding visits (3) to Indy efficient. She was a wonderful resource to bounce ideas off of, was always honest with us, and took the time to understand our vision. Most importantly, Jodie and her team ensured that our wedding day ran absolutely smooth-as-can-be. As the bride, I didn't notice anything amiss- she kept the entire wedding party on schedule, and coordinated all of the vendors and wedding events to a tee. We couldn't have imagined a happier day; and so much of it was thanks to Jodie running the show.
Worth every penny!Reviewed on 11/05/2015 Brittany H
Jodie was fantastic to work with! My husband and I used her for a day of wedding coordinator and she was the best investment for our wedding. I honestly have no idea how the wedding would have gone without Jodie and I do not want to think about it! Jodie is very professional and on task. She is very organized and will listen to your every need and desire. She is very quick to get back to you whether by email or text. I was a nervous wreck before the wedding about all the final touches being in place and everything being perfect, having Jodie lifted all of that off my shoulders. Several weeks before the wedding she goes through in very thorough detail with you at the venue about the details so she knows exactly how you want things on your wedding day. It was also nice to have Jodie the last 6 weeks before the wedding to contact all vendors for final details and put a timeline together. That alone was huge task taken off me. The wedding timeline was perfect and the day ran very smoothly. Funny story, right before the ceremony my husband hugged one of his friends attending and the main flower of his boutonniere snapped off! He turned around and all he had to say was "Jodie..." She took a flower from an arrangement and fixed it right then and there. (While telling him to stop hugging people :D ) She was also able to put on my veil without messing up my hair among many other things. She did so many things on our wedding day it was hard to keep track of them all! Jodie was fun to work with as she was lighthearted but serious and again very organized. I nor my husband and our families would have enjoyed our wedding day near what we did had it not been for Jodie. If anything went wrong on my wedding day, I have absolutely no idea about it because Jodie took care of it. We did not have to worry about a thing! She is a true professional and worth every penny.
One of the Best decisions we've ever made!Reviewed on 10/28/2015
I am sure that many of these reviews are written by the bride or her mother, but as a groom I felt compelled to right about my experience with Jodie and Aisle ready events. When we first spoke to Jodie, she said something that I was sure every wedding planner says in order to get your business. Jodie told my bride and myself that she treated every wedding as if it were her own. I must say that when those words came out of her mouth I was skeptical to say the least. I went into this entire process feeling that this would not be money well spent and that having a planner would have zero effect on our big day, boy was I wrong. I could not imagine how many issues could arise that could have possibly derailed our perfect day but come they did. Jodie and her staff met each request enthusiastically and head on, our forgotten items, my nervous bride and the possibility of rain. If we ever needed Jodie or her staff they were right there to save the day. So I guess the reason I am writing this review and not my wife is that I want nothing more in the world than to make her happy. So I would like to thank Jodie and her staff at Aisle Ready for making our special day perfect and My wife the happiest Bride on earth and for that I will be forever grateful. Christopher and Elise
A lifesaver!Reviewed on 10/28/2015 Rose F
Alea Stanley at Aisle Ready Events was an integral part of our wedding day and made the planning a breeze and the entire day absolutely perfect! Anything that came up was immediately handled by her and my husband and I were able to just enjoy our wedding day without having to worry about a single thing. Not only that, but my mother - who worries about every detail - was able to relax knowing the day was in such capable hands. I am so grateful for her help and wedding planning/coordinating expertise!
Amazing and on top of everythingReviewed on 10/05/2015 Mona J
I cannot imagine finding another wedding coordinator as good a Jodie very easily. She was on top of every single detail and was insurmountably helpful in any way a bride can be helped. I would highly highly recommend Jodie to any bride who has been planning the majority of their wedding and need a trustworthy and understanding coordinator to make sure the big day goes right.
Aisle Ready events made my wedding amzazing!!Reviewed on 9/28/2015 Katie J
Jodie at Aisle Ready events truly made my wedding spectacular! She is incredibly knowledgable and is extremely organized and detail oriented, she is also and incredibly friendly and nice person. Jodie went above any beyond to make sure there were no worries or stress on my wedding day, she even drove to my house to get my veil when I forgot it the day before my wedding. I don't know what I would have done with out her. I highly recommend using Aisle ready events for your wedding, you want to be able to enjoy every minute of it and Jodie makes that possible!
Excellent ServiceReviewed on 9/06/2015
Jodie was great from day 1! She made sure everything was put together the day of exactly how I wanted it. I didn't have to worry about anything the day of. She answered my billion questions in a timely fashion and was such a great help through the planning process. I would highly recommend!
Our wedding would NOT have been the same without Jodie!Reviewed on 8/11/2015 Sandy D
Our venue had a policy that wedding parties and vendors aren’t allowed on-site until three hours before the ceremony start time (deliveries, decorations, set-up, photos, etc. all had to be done in the 2.5 hours before people started arriving), which made me nervous. I didn’t need a wedding planner because I planned most of the wedding on my own, but I figured it would help to have someone manage decorations and the timeline day-of, and be the “boss” for the rehearsal and wedding (I hate telling people what to do!). I wanted that “just in case” person to be there if I needed him/her. So began the search for the Perfect Wedding Coordinator. I struggled to find a wedding coordinator with a package that fit what I wanted. Many coordinators did only ceremonies or giant day-of packages, and few were willing to help with the wedding rehearsal or decorations. For those who did help with decorations, the charges were astronomical. No one seemed to be willing to cater charges to only what I needed. Many Google searches later, I finally found an event coordinator who had the perfect solution (a “Bride’s Assistant” package that was a hybrid between a wedding planner and coordinator): Aisle Ready Events. I was lucky to find her--Jodie had just moved to Indiana and her business was just getting started. I got a very good vibe from her almost immediately, and I just knew she could handle everything I needed! I booked her as soon as I could. Jodie was there for every walk-through, and had excellent advice. It felt great to have an expert to bounce ideas off of and share my wedding plans with. She asked our venue questions I wouldn’t know to ask, and as a bonus service, she helped build a day-of timeline and made sure we meet our vendors’ payment deadlines. We just had our wedding this past weekend, and I can say that I SEVERELY underestimated the amount of support we needed to actually pull off a flawless wedding (which we did, thanks to Jodie and her assistant!). Our wedding would NOT have been the same without her help--we kept saying how we didn't know how we could have done anything (the rehearsal, wedding) without her. Jodie was one of the first people there and the last to go home, and worked tirelessly in-between to set up decorations, keep everything moving, prevent disasters, and help pack up--all with a smile on her face for me, which helped keep me happy and calm! She took all the decorations I had supplied and somehow made our ceremony and reception space look even better than I had planned/imagined! At the end of the night, I was amazed to be able to walk out the door and onto our trolley without having to pack up a single thing...Jodie and her assistant had done it all! So many of our guests and vendors were impressed by her. I'm still hearing things from vendors and guests about how "This went wrong, but Jodie was there to help..." Without her, I truly feel like everything may have fallen apart--Instead I keep saying "Everything was perfect!" You can trust Jodie and her team to do a phenomenal job for your wedding, and they're worth every penny. Your wedding day is no day to play Superwoman!
Wedding day coordinationReviewed on 7/05/2015 Danielle W
Jodie was fantastic to work with! We contacted her late in the process to help with day-off coordination and she was quick to respond, hustled to help us with last minute details, and went out of her way to provide day-of items we were lacking. There is no way our rehearsal or wedding would have run as smoothly as they did without her help! She kept us stress-free and made sure things ran according to our vision. She is very professional but fun and easy to work with. I'd highly recommend her!
Lost without herReviewed on 4/23/2015 Amanda W
We brought Jodie in about a month before our wedding. My now husband was not sure why I decided to hire someone when we had in house coordinators at both venues. Well, after the wedding I can say one of the first things out of his mouth was "Thank goodness we had Jodie." Our day was FLAWLESS and even if something went wrong I had would have had no idea because she took care of everything. Everyone told us we would be unable to eat at our own wedding so Jodie boxed up food for us and put it in our room with an additional mini fridge. She was there for any question or concern I thought might arise and she was worth every penny. Her assistants that came with her were sweet and very helpful as well. Do yourself a favor and hire Jodie if you want a flawless wedding!
