One of our friends gave Wanda and Blue Linden the greatest compliment- he said he never knew who the coordinator was during the wedding. If you’re looking for someone to insulate you from drama on your wedding day, hire them. If you’re looking for a voice of sanity and reason during your wedding planning, hire them. If you’re looking for happy, professional, kind souls to shepherd you through the happiest of times, hire them. I love Wanda and Kaitlyn and Tina, and would have been lost without their services. I’m pretty organized, but they helped me keep sane and feel like everything was manageable. There were times when Wanda was the grown up in the room and kept us on track, but her kindness and sense of humor got us through all kinds of madness. Thank you for everything! Seamless wedding, and I know that that kind of smooth requires thought and hard work. Thank you!!!
You’ll be thanking yourself for a long time to come, Wanda is Incredible. I'd give 10 stars of I could! Choosing a wedding coordinator is not necessarily easy! I didn’t know exactly what to look for in hiring a day-of-coordinator but after my “interview” call with Wanda I knew I was hiring the BEST wedding coordinator there is. I felt completely at ease talking to her about every single detail of my wedding. She does this all the time so you would think it would be redundant but she truly cared about everything I was saying and provided so much excellent support and suggestion. She doesn’t rush you through anything and gives you as much time as you need. Communication and promptness is unparalleled. She is a consummate professional and wonderful person in general that you just want to work with. I simply can’t thank her enough and can’t tell other future brides how well taken care of you will be. She thinks of everything. She’s prepared for everything. She does everything you hope for and then some. My wedding day in Telluride, CO would not have gone as absolutely seamlessly as it did, without her and her assistant Kaitlin. They accommodated every single request we had from getting into town a day early, driving me, my MOH and mother to our walk through, setting up my entire welcome party venue and lugging around all of our decorations from site to site. When it came to the rehearsal Wanda held everyone’s attention to get it done, and get it done right! When it came to the actual wedding it all came together like magic. I really didn’t have to think about anything the whole day. She and my MOH were in constant contact and I was probably the calmest, happiest bride that day because there was nothing to worry about. Two things stand out to me most: 1. Wanda is like protective mom figure over her brides. She doesn’t let other vendors push you around or push their agendas on you. She’ll step in and make sure that you are getting exactly what you want and do it all on your behalf so you don’t look like bridezilla. She’s a huge comfort when you need it. 2. Day-of-coordination does not mean day-of coordination. She was there for me whenever I needed her in the months leading up to the big day. I can’t say that I think that’s common. It’s above and beyond service and you’ll be so glad to have them on your team xoxo It’s been a month since my wedding (I am remiss in my tardiness of posting this so late) but I still hear from my family, mother-in –law, aunts, uncles, my mom and dad all have commented on what a terrific job she did. I echo everyone’s sentiments who have posted here and hope that my own are helpful for anyone looking for the best person and team to support them in their big day!!!
Hiring Wanda was absolutely the best decision we made when planning our wedding! She was always there whenever we needed her and no detail was missed. She helped keep everything together and made sure everyone and everything was just perfect. The best part and what made hiring Wanda the best decision we made was that she always had us at the front of her mind. It's so easy to get distracted with everyone's opinions and jobs getting in the way and she did everything to make sure we had everything how we wanted not what everyone else wanted. The day of our wedding, I was able to relax, enjoy the time and not once did I have to worry about making sure everyone was where they were supposed to be or anything like that. I honestly could not recommend Wanda enough! Thank you so much for everything! We could not have done it without you!
My daughter's wedding included guests from Bosnia, Canada, Philippines, Norway,, China and other countries - Multiple language groups. One would think that these groups would have little in common, but at the reception no one was left in their seats everyone was having a blast. My guests all told me that this was the best wedding they ever attended - What more can I add?
Wanda made everything perfect! She was there every step of the way and made sure not a detail was overlooked! I would highly recommend Wanda with any event I am planning in Colorado! Wanda came down from Denver to Colorado Springs to help with rehearsal and rehearsal dinner- then made the trek down again for the wedding! She was well prepared with everything and kept everyone on track for the big day! She has style, great humor and is amazing! If you are getting married in Colorado, go with Blue Linden!
Hiring a wedding planner was one of the best decisions we made and hiring Wanda proved to be invaluable. She took charge in all the right places and never lost sight of what we wanted out of our day. We utilized her services for both planning and day of coordination. Wanda handled all of the delegating/fussing over details and kept everything on time. She handled this with a refinement that made her feel like a background figure, and made us shine, even though in reality she was running the show! Our wedding party and guests were even commenting about how nice our planner was. The things that I know Wanda did and the things I'm sure she did behind the scenes that I will probably never know about made the day absolutely perfect for us. Thank you!
Wanda and her team are amazing. We had no worries leading up to celebration. She was easy to reach, extremely helpful, a joy to be around and kept things going smoothly. I truly enjoyed my experience with her and keep her contact information handy for any of my friends that are looking for a wedding or day of coordinator. She is the best and I am so blessed to have worked with her.
Wanda was the best part of our wedding. We used her for day of coordination, along with a couple other things. For example, I was struggling with arranging hotel blocks, as we had a mountain wedding and the Vail and Beaver Creek hotels weren't very accommodating. She was happy to help arrange that part, and saved my sanity. For the day of coordination, we met with her the month before the wedding and reviewed the plans we had already made. I don't know what we would have done without her, because throughout the meeting, she was bringing up things that we hadn't even considered. She put together a comprehensive day of timeline, and wrangled all the other vendors. She also handled the set up of the venue, and everything looked gorgeous. She took all of the decor I had collected and made it look better than I ever could have expected. She is funny and professional, and my family and friends raved about how great she was. The day ran completely smoothly, and she was the reason for it. My only regret is not hiring her to plan the whole thing! It certainly would have been much less stressful than planning it ourselves.
Wanda and Kaitlin did a fantastic job being our Day of Coordinators. Given Wanda's experience she provided valuable insight into planning the day and she seemed very comfortable with the other vendors, having worked closely with them at prior events. During our Wedding, Wanda and Kaitlin ensured minimal questions were brought to us. Everything was set up beautifully and the night ran extremely smoothly! They were creative in their ideas. We appreciated the hard work they put in for the Ceremony and Reception as well as after helping clean up. They ensured all of our decorations and gifts were securely packed away for us to pick up the next day. We couldn't have had as smooth of an event without them. Thank you!
Blue Linden is the best! Wanda is so easy to work with, and makes everything stress free! If you want a picture perfect wedding day hire her. She will be with you every step :)
We hired Wanda as our planner for our wedding on Dec. 9, 2016 in Estes Park and I had a fantastic experience. I don't recall the name of the package we purchased, but essentially we did month-of coordination with additional design help. She was a huge help in finding rentals for items we didn't want to purchase and super helpful in picking out the stuff that we did need to buy. She grasped the vision of what we were looking for perfectly, and ultimately, we were VERY happy with how our wedding turned out. My favorite thing about Wanda is how no-BS she is. If I mentioned I wasn't happy with something, she was all over it and fixed it immediately. She's also super nice and fun, and was great to work with. She's very responsive to both text and email and I never felt like I was waiting around for her to get back to me. And after the wedding both my and my husband’s parents approached us to let us know how much they liked her and what a great job she did. Honestly, I don't have a bad thing to say about her. After our wedding we were so happy with what a great job she did that we didn't feel like we had tipped her enough, so we ended up mailing her more money because we truly felt like she deserved it.
I am the mother of the bride and hired Wanda to help us out on the day of the wedding. She started off by meeting with us and providing a detailed list of questions, which was very helpful and allowed us to dot the i's and cross the t's. On the day of the wedding she immediately went into coordinator role and ensured all our needs and requests were completed. This allowed me and my daughter to truly relax and enjoy the day! Her attention to detail was wonderful! And her easy going personality and suggestions were extremely appreciated. Thank you Wanda for allowing me to have one of the most beautiful days of my life!
As the mother of the groom, I hired Blue Linden as our day-of coordinator knowing that, without a professional to watch over the details, I wouldn't be able to fully engage in the wedding because I'd be too busy overseeing things.SO HAPPY we found Wanda and team! She made sure to review all contracts in advance so she could effectively manage all vendors on the big day. She and her team set out almost all the decorations we made, confirmed that all vendors would show up as contracted, handled anything that came up on the day of the wedding (imagine an overly intoxicated guest...), packed up everything after the wedding was over, and allowed me to thoroughly enjoy every fleeting moment of the wedding. Thank you, Wanda! You are amazing!
Wanda was so integral to making our wedding run smoothly. We had a New Years Eve wedding lasting through midnight. Not only that but we planned it remotely! Wanda's contacts in the city make everything more possible. I cannot imagine planning such an event without her there. But not only that. Wanda seemed more like a friend. She's since done another of our friends wedding and it was a joy to see her again. If nothing else, I told my husband we will have to plan anniversary parties and have Wanda plan them so we can see her again :) Wanda, you are amazing. Thank you for the wonderful job that you do!
Wanda is an absolute superstar in this industry! There is no one else we would recommend to couples planning their special day! We had been to weddings she worked in the past, and her working our wedding was no different. She started working with us well in advance and she made planning a wedding remotely seem easy! She was gracious enough to travel from Denver to D.C. (we lived in Kentucky during planning), ensuring our special day was what we envisioned and ensuring all of our guests had an amazing night. She ensured all agencies involved in the wedding where coordinated, timed properly, etc, and made sure the wedding venue was perfect! The only thing you need to do after reading this review is hire Wanda - you will not be disappointed!
Wanda was on point, took charge, and my wedding day went by smoothly. Come the day of your wedding, there's a lot of details to be taken care of and Wanda made things very easy.
Wanda is amazing!! Not only is she absolutely delightful to work with, but she knows what she's doing. Wanda provided helpful advice and great recommendations throughout the planning process. When I had a florist catastrophe, Wanda stepped in and recommended someone who made all of my flower dreams come true! Wanda is also beyond ESSENTIAL on the day-of. She made the whole experience stress-free. Do yourself a favor and hire her immediately!!
Wanda is incredible. Do yourself a favor and hire her. She is a pro and made my wedding a breeze. She contacted all of my vendors, gave them set up times and had her as the contact so I could focus on my actual wedding day instead of vendor details, what time and where folks should show up etc. I also ended up having a tough time with one of my vendors and as soon as I notified Wanda she took it off my hands and not only fixed the situation but actually negotiated a better deal. If you are still reading this review, stop... and just email her... bride to bride - she is the best money I spent on my wedding day, period.
My mom was super stressed about everything going perfectly the day of my wedding! When we met Wanda we both knew we would have nothing to stress over! She was a huge help! She contacted vendors for me! She made everything look as beautiful as I had envisioned! She made the entire day stress free so my mom could relax and really celebrate with me! Thank you so much, Wanda!
I am self admittedly a research-aholic, to a fault sometimes. When it came time to find a planner there was no exception, I read many reviews and called many planners ( ya know ,the ones that seem to be on the tips of the tongue of your venue etc. and seem to cost as much as the wedding itself), and then I came across Wanda. I must admit, at first I was attracted to her prices and then a little nervous because she was so reasonable, seemed too good to be true! This was one of those times you hit the jackpot! If your looking for someone who has your back like you've been life long friends, will go to bat for you with your vendors all while keeping you sane and comforted then Partytopia is your answer. I hired Wanda for my Four Seasons wedding and of all the decisions I made, she was at the top of the list! Wanda is knowledgeable, savvy, but most of all humble and gracious, all the qualities I or anyone could ask for. If your on the fence about hiring a planner just meet her for coffee and you'll be convinced, I was!
I was the maid of honor for my brother and best friend of 11 years wedding. Wanda was the coordinator for the wedding and i must say she was the most genuine, down to earth, kind, loving, motivated, organized, timely, classy, detail oriented planner i have ever seen. The reception was set up perfectly, she made sure the DJ, bartender, photographer and anyone else involved with the wedding knew what they were supposed to do and where they were supposed to be. There was absolutely no stress on the bride at all. Wanda constantly was checking in with the bride to make sure she didn't need water, wine, snacks etc during an hour of photos or getting ready or anything else. I cannot wait to someday get married and hire Partytopia and specifically Wanda as my wedding coordinator.
Wanda was nothing short of being a Pro from day one! She is the best in the business! Leading to our wedding day she was a well of knowledge and resources. The production of the wedding was spot on and I would and will recommend her to everyone I know getting married!
I don't think we would've had such an incredible, memorable wedding without Wanda. She bore the burden no bride, groom, mother, father, etc. should ever have to face on such a special occasion. Wanda ensured everything went perfectly, even if it meant getting tough vendors that didn't deliver what they promised. She was, in all honesty, a lifesaver and we were so thrilled that we were lucky enough to get her.
Wanda was everything a bride and groom could ever wish for in a wedding coordinator. Wanda is fun, and knows how to lighten any mood. She took so much off of our plate by handling the vendors and making sure she was the point of contact. Wanda was with us every step of the way making sure our needs were being met, and always making us feel so calm and comfortable. She puts so much effort into every last detail, making sure flowers are watered, candles are lit, centerpieces are centered brides dress is always fluffed, etc. Our wedding day wouldn't have been so magical without Wanda!
Wanda was the best! So detailed and wonderful to work with. She took all of the stress out of wedding planning and such a lovely person.
