Finding Martha was absolutely the best thing that happened to us in 2020, barring the wedding itself! As the mother of the bride, I was happy to do the heavy lifting to organize the 150-person wedding and then the 30-person pandemic wedding, b...
ut when it came down to the 10-person "fingers-crossed-we-all-live-through-this wedding", I knew I was out of my depth. Martha made all the difference! She is worth her weight in gold, and I mean this literally. We are now 10 days post-wedding and I am still floating on the cloud of pure joy that I was free to experience fully, because Martha was there to deal with the stuff. I am forever grateful, Martha! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Working with Martha was the best and easiest decision we made in our wedding planning! I had attended a wedding where Martha had been coordinating, and everything seemed to flow wonderfully! We met with Martha early on in our planning, so she c...
ould get a feel in what we were envisioning. Through meetups, emails, google docs-we were really able to stay connected with Martha. As our wedding year began, and public health changes were happening in our world- Martha really stayed connected and communicated with us through every step. With the guidelines changing every single week, we were on standby with plans and backup plans. As it soon became clear that the large wedding that Martha was helping us coordinate would not be happening, Martha met with us to plan the next steps for our new “mini wedding.” We ended up getting married outside at my husband’s family home growing up. Martha came to visit the new venue, to make sure she had a true vision of how it could all come together. Because our wedding was soon after the stay at home order, and things were slowly starting to open back up, our goal was to make people feel safe and comfortable. She helped me figure out seating arrangements, wedding favors, plans for keeping socially distanced. On the wedding day itself, she remained the point person for all our vendors and handled the payments and setting up of everything. When I arrived to the venue, Martha was hard at work decorating and setting up exactly what I had envisioned. My husband and I still laugh, because he said even though him and his groomsmen were getting ready at the house where everything was happening, his one job was stay downstairs, drink mimosas, and hang out with his guys. Again, Martha is the best wedding decision we made and she truly made all the changes happening around us manageable and enjoyable. Looking back on our day and looking back at the original day I had planned in my head, I think the new wedding that we had at the end of May was even better! Many thanks go out to Martha and all her hard work!!!

yself. Honestly, I couldn't imagine how that was going to happen because the venue didn't have a day of coordinator. This is why we hired Martha and boy am I glad we did!
I cannot say enough about the calm and organized manner in which Martha approached the whole process. From our first phone call to the big day, Martha helped me feel assured and I "let go" which enabled me to focus on making memories and the enjoy the whole wedding day experience! I made the initial call but she worked with our daughter and now son in law throughout their engagement to understand their wishes, familiarizing herself with the many vendors and getting a timeline established.
Thank you Martha for all you did to take the stress off of me and help make my daughter's wedding day go so smoothly. It was beautiful and so much fun!!

Working with Martha was without a doubt the best decision we made during the wedding planning process. If you are looking for a day-of wedding coordinator in the Madison area, she’s it!

te, and Martha helped us make sure that every detail was attended to leading up to the wedding. When we arrived in Wisconsin, there was nothing left to do but enjoy time with family and friends. Martha arranged her schedule to meet us in person for coffee while I was home for a summer visit leading up to the wedding. She instantly put us at ease, asking thoughtful questions about our venue, special family members, and logistics of the ceremony. I thought I was fairly organized leading up to that point, but after our meeting I realized the benefits of working with a professional coordinator like Martha!
Planning from afar was easy with her as she utilized Google docs for sharing purposes and emailed just to check in. It was evident throughout the entire process that Martha’s kind hearted personality would make for a wonderful wedding day experience. She contacted all of our vendors in the weeks leading up to the wedding and attended our rehearsal the night before the wedding. Our family and friends loved Martha as much as we did! She used her creative and organized talents to put together a beautiful space at our venue, and took care of small details -- from thank you cards for our vendors, to making sure our cards were delivered to our hotel room after dinner.
With Martha’s help, our wedding was a day we’ll never forget. We cannot recommend her enough! My only regret is not hiring Martha sooner!

artha made sure everything ran smoothly. We had a meeting a few months before the wedding, another one month before, and Martha even came to the rehearsal in order to make sure she had the details organized. At our ceremony, she really kept everything rolling at the right pace and in the correct order. Afterwards, she gathered and collected all the flowers and took them to the reception. Martha has a great eye and is very talented-she made our wedding day vision come true. She also made sure everything flowed as planned at the reception. We can't thank Martha enough and are so glad we hired her! She is so worth the money, and then some.

need for a day of coordinator. I saw great reviews with Bliss Coordinating and the ability to pay an hourly rate was just what we needed. We were able to customize what we needed done the day of so it didn’t fall on us or family to figure out. She was open to do whatever we felt was needed and provided suggestions based on previous weddings she’s worked. From the first time we met to our wedding day, Martha was always available, organized and contacted our vendors to make sure they were too. She worked behind the scenes to make our wedding day as special as it should be. We’re so glad we booked Bliss Coordinating and had Martha to fall back on!

between the ceremony and reception. She offered great insight during the planning process and during our onsite meeting the week prior to the wedding. She did exceeded all expectations beyond my tasks I requested she assist with, from contacting all our vendors prior to the event and adding fresh flowers to cover up part of the frosting that got damaged in the fridge. I had no stress the day of and it is due to her hard work and expertise. I can not recommend Martha more highly!

e entire journey from our first initial meeting at a coffee shop about a year before the wedding, to the day of our wedding. She was always very organized and asked many questions about things I hadn't thought of before (and I consider myself an on-top-of-it kind of person and very organized myself). She did so many behind the scenes things that I didn't even know she was doing -- for example, in the weeks leading up to the wedding, I know she had told me she was going to call all the vendors to confirm details, but she did it all so quietly that I wouldn't have known she was indeed doing it unless my uncle (our officiant) hadn't told me Martha had called him. The fact she was taking care of all the nitty gritty details and loose ends in the weeks before the wedding and making sure everything was good to go for our big day was a relief in itself - I was so busy with other things! Martha also came to our ceremony rehearsal, and if you can fit it into your budget to have her there for that, DO IT. She was SO HELPFUL I cannot tell you enough how thankful we were to have her there for that. Who knew a rehearsal could be so hard to coordinate and get people to listen ha! Then on the wedding day, Martha was excellent!! She greeted all the vendors for me, handed out tips, made sure everything ran on time, and put out all of my decorations and made sure it all looked good (among other things). She handled everything beautifully. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her. I knew she had everything so I didn't worry about logistics at all. Also of note, Martha is so budget friendly. When I was first researching, I looked into other wedding coordinators and they were easily 1.5-2x her price. Martha, thank you SO much for all you did for us, we truly cannot thank you enough.
