After spending months planning your wedding down to the tiniest detail, the big day arrives, and you can just enjoy the fruits of your labors, right? That’s what I thought—but if it hadn’t been for Allison from Flourish Events, I don’t think our wedding would have gone nearly as... Read More smoothly. Let me be honest, I thought people were crazy to pay for a day of wedding coordinator. But after several months of stressful wedding planning, I gave in and splurged on Allison. And I am so glad we did. She took care of all the stressful day-of chores and last-minute decisions for us so that we could enjoy the most important day of our lives. Take it from me—if you want to be sure that you can sit back and relax on your wedding day (while still making sure everything is just as you had planned), Allison is the person you need!

The best coordinator is an invisible one!

Allison did a great job coordinating our wedding. We opted for a modified wedding weekend coordination package and Allison attended our rehearsal as well as the day-of events. I worked with Allison before the event, forwarding her my contracts and putting together a timeline.... Read More I think the true sign of good coordinating is that I enjoyed a relatively seamless and stress-free wedding day -- if there were problems or hiccups, they were dealt with and I was not alerted. In my mind, this is exactly what a day-of coordinator should be doing. Thanks to Allison, our wedding day was about us -- and not about the logistical maneuvering that made the day work.
