wedding in San Diego, Ca and we live out of state in Rhode Island. I was stressed from the beginning knowing I wouldn't be in my home town to plan my dream wedding which is why we decided to work with Lavish Wed. I'm so happy that we did! Christine helped with everything, kept the planning on track & brought up things I would have surely forgotten. She's so lovely & sweet that it was incredibly easy to work with her. I actually miss our emails & phone chats! I feel like she became my friend over the course of 8months of planning & I'm sure that everyone that works with her feels the same. Our other vendors also loved working with Christine and her team which makes everything run smoother. We have been receiving so many compliments on our wedding... "The most beautiful wedding we've been to, "absolutely lovely & perfect". I'd like to take credit but I can't. I truly owe it to Christine & Lavish Wed that our wedding was such a beautiful, elegant & perfect day! I could not have done it without Christine!!! Thank you a million times over Christine!!! Jim and I had our Best Day Ever and will cherish it forever! Thanks for making it possible Lavish Wed!

We hired Christine and Lavish Weddings for their Full Service Planning and Day of Coordination (our wedding was 6/13/15) and it was the BEST decision I ever made.She totally surpassed my expectations. I researched wedding coordinators through v...
arious websites and Christine was the first person I called. Right away, she was willing to speak to me on the phone for an informative meeting, and answered any questions I had. When I got off the phone with her, I knew she is who I wanted to help coordinate and plan our wedding.Our wedding was actually a destination wedding (we live in Texas), so everyone’s first question to me was, “Planning a wedding in a different state must be difficult, right?” Well, it WOULD have been more difficult, but having Christine as our wedding coordinator actually made it EASIER. As the wedding day got closer, a lot of my bridesmaids would tell me how I am the most stress free bride they have ever seen. And it was true! If I ever started feeling stress, Christine was there to reassure me that she had everything under control. I don’t want to say I am a control freak ;), but I like to be involved/updated with the status on things and know all the details. Christine would answer any and all questions I had timely, and then she would give me the reassurance that her and her assistant had it all taken care of, and not to worry. She is open to all communication, and we used it all--Email, phone, and text. She would be responsive to it all. The day of the rehearsal, Christine was there with her assistant, and they ran the show perfect. And we had A LOT of bridesmaids and groomsmen, and sponsors/readers. Christine also put together a timeline so everyone knew what time to be ready at and what the game plan was. This was SO helpful, and one less thing for me to worry about. Christine also helped provide a projector that we needed for a slideshow for our rehearsal dinner. It was kind of a last minute decision, but she was able to make it happen to get one for us. The day of the wedding, everything was PERFECT. It was just the way we discussed during our design meeting, and her and her assistant Lauren did a wonderful job. The day went smoothly, and I didn’t have to worry about anything.I just had to get ready and Christine let me know when/where I needed to be. Throughout the wedding, as all my friends are seeing how beautiful everything looked and how amazing/smooth the day was going, they were asking me, “Where did you find Christine?! Because she is amazing!” She really went above and beyond with everything.But besides that, she is honestly one of the nicest and sweetest people you will ever meet. I was actually sad knowing that all the wedding planning was over because that meant we weren’t going to be working together anymore…that’s how much I enjoyed her! The advice I give to my friends is to find a wedding coordinator who you trust and who you get along with,and I can honestly say Christine is the type of person who can get along with anyone, and you can absolutely trust her. All in all, our wedding planning experience/wedding day was absolutely perfect! And we owe it all to Christine.All of our wedding guest keep telling us how it was one, if not, THE best wedding they have ever gone to. My husband and I are so thankful for Christine and her Lavish Wed team, and appreciate her helping us put together the wedding of our dreams! Thank you again for EVERYTHING Christine!

't know how I could have handled the last weeks/days before the wedding without her. Both her and Christine were always there to answer any question or concern I had! They both accompanied me to the final meeting for our reception venue, they were so organized and professional and made sure every question was answered and kept note of all the details. We had a slight issue with other vendors because our reception was held at a military base, and Christine went above and beyond to try and make sure we would have everything set up. We were so thankful for that!
Val was the first person from Christine's team that I got into contact with when I was just looking for an inquiry. From just our first interaction I could tell how much of a sweet and kind person she was. We were so blessed to have her as our lead. I had complete faith and trust in her that she would execute the wedding without a problem and that's exactly what she did! We are so appreciative of all the hard work that Val did for us from putting together all the paperwork, dealing with all the other vendors, and dealing with me constantly emailing her with concerns lol. She handled everything with grace and professionalism.

My husband underestimated the stress of wedding planning and the actual wedding day, b...
ut thankfully, he gave into me and let me hire Lavish Wed to make sure our wedding goes smoothly.
They really did take off a lot for us and helped us preserve our sanity until the wedding day. We really had a great time on our wedding because everything else was being taken care of for us. Christine and her ladies kept us on schedule which was really important because our venue would have charged us a bunch of money if we partied too long or started it off too early.
They responded to our emails within 24 hours, often within the same day. They had checklists, suggestions that made the party fun, and referrals that really helped us out. In fact, we found our makeup artist, hairstylist, and videographer through Lavish Wed. All of them were stellar and amazing! Altogether along with my florist and DJ, they made an all star team who made our wedding very special and memorable.
Christine and her girls have good taste and class. We gave them all the decor we wanted at our wedding and they put it all together on the day of. Everything turned out great! Some of my guests even said that it was instagram worthy.
We definitely recommend getting Lavish Wed on board if you're planning a wedding for the first time. It helped us out since we were both very busy and had no experience with wedding planning. Also, it was a tremendous help for us since we procrastinate a lot. Christine and her girls are very easy and great to work with. I'm so happy to have trusted them with so many responsibilities. They are great at what they do and they know what they're doing!

ous!! We hired her and her team to do full service planning, from the very start of planning until the wedding day was over.
We live in Toronto, Ontario but decided to get married in my home town of San Diego, California. Christine was always available to discuss my wedding and made the long distance wedding planning stress free. She was flexible with her schedule and set up meetings with different venues and vendors to accommodate the times I was in town.
When planning a wedding there are so many different things to decide and choose from, it can be very stressful. Christine helped us choose the perfect venue, music, flowers, invitations and all the other details within our budget. If there was something I wanted at my wedding, she knew where and how to get it for me. She was always there to lend her advice and expertise to make sure our wedding was absolutely perfect.
Christine was very organized and kept everything running smoothly on schedule. On the day of our wedding we were able to focus entirely on our guests, family and each other. It was such a wonderful day! We wish we could go back and re-live it again.
Thank you Christine! Our wedding was exactly what we wanted it to be and more thanks to you!

I had such a great experience working with Lavish Wed! I booked them a month out for our September wedding at Hotel Del. I am so grateful that I found them after having had a bad experience with a previous wedding planner. I needed someone that...
I could get advice from and that could help with the planning process. I was planning a wedding from Hawaii and was pretty much alone in the whole planning process. Therefore, I needed some guidance. I contacted Lavish and luckily they were available.
At first, I was mostly in touch with Christine, who was so friendly and very prompt at returning emails. Thats one thing that was important to me and I was thankful for. My previous wedding planner took days before she would get back to me, and that was part of the reason why we parted ways. Since I couldn't meet the team in person, I got to that to talk to the ladies over the phone, as they helped me go through every step. The ladies were always there for me, no matter what I needed. Even if it was just getting their opinion on the colors or centerpieces. As it got closer to the wedding day, I was mostly in touch with Val, who was my day of coordinator, along with Sarah. Although I was mainly talking to Val towards the end, Christine was always involved, making sure I was comfortable with everything. To make sure I was prepared as we approached the big day, the ladies sent me timelines, checklists, seating charts, and made sure all the little details were taken care of. Even when I hadnt accounted for something, they made sure they personally took care of it.
At the rehearsal is where I finally met the team. Although Christine was not going to be there during the wedding day, she made it a point to come to the rehearsal and meet me. All the ladies were super professional and very personable. Although we had to keep them waiting for almost an hour, waiting for the bridal party, they did not express any sort of disdain. Once everyone had finally shown up, Val went over the timeline with us. We practiced everything, she answered every question, and only wrapped things up when everyone was comfortable. She was such a lovely and pleasant person. It definitely didn't feel as though I was meeting her for the first time.
When the wedding day came, I couldn't have asked for more. Val and Sarah took care of everything. I did not have to deal with anything on my big day. Even if things had gone wrong, I was left unaware. They ladies had everything covered and did such a fabulous job at setting everything up, getting everyone situated, and making sure everything followed the timeline. I am so thankful of them. All our guests at the wedding had great things to say about them. I didn't know until after, that they escorted some wedding crashers out and also made sure one of our guests had a way home. Thats just some of the things I was told. I am sure they did so much more behind the scenes that was left unseen. I am so thankful for them and so glad that they were there for us on our day, It truly felt as though they were part of our friends and family during the wedding day, instead of our planners. Thank you so much Lavish Wed, we owe you guys for the fabulous special day that we had.

All our guests were impressed with Lavish Wed on the day of the wedding. It was beyond obvious that even though we had 400 guests, a complex wedding program and a huge wedding party, everything went smoothly, perfectly and on time.
We had ordered macaroons from a local bakery but had no idea what to do with it. Christine designed a beautiful station displaying the macaroons. People could not stop talking about how pretty it looked. She did a great job.
If it weren't for Christine and her team, I have no idea what we would have done. Lavish Wed is amazing!! Best wedding planner/coordinator ever!!

I hired Christine as the day-of wedding coordinator for our San Diego wedding in August 2013 and she was amazing. She completely went above and beyond and contacted all my vendors for me and organized our wedding rehearsal, even though the pri...
ce we had settled on was essentially for day-of services. She's also flexible with plans and responds quickly to email and text. Even before the wedding day, I kept telling my bridesmaids that Lavish Wed was the best deal out of all my vendors.
She is so organized and on top of all the details that my other vendors were even complimenting me on my choice. I'm not kidding .. the officiant, the lighting crew, the DJ, and my photographer all said good things. My favorite compliment was from my sister (and maid of honor) who asked, "Where did you FIND her??"
Not only did my vendors think she was great, my guests were pleased as well. We had 175 people at our ceremony and reception and I received multiple compliments about how the ceremony and reception were beautifully planned. She is so discrete that no one even knew Christine was behind it all!
Despite the opinions of my vendors and guests, my husband and I were definitely her happiest customers that day. Like any wedding, ours didn't go without its problems (i.e. the florist got lost, some of the guests were running behind, etc) but we didn't hear about ANY of it until after the event. Being able to relax and enjoy ourselves on our wedding day was an invaluable gift that Christine gave to us. We really can't thank her enough.

I recently got married and hired Christine at Lavish as our month-of coordinator. I was hesitant to pay for a month or day of coordinator, but our venue required it and thank goodness! Because of Lavish, my wedding day was relaxing, stress-free...
and in my eyes, the day went perfectly. After the fact, I found out a few things that went wrong (like people showing up who weren't invited, etc), but I didn't know a thing about it the day of and that's how it should be. I was able to spend the day relaxing and getting ready with my girls rather than stressing over the set-up of the wedding.
The bride should never to the vendor contact the day of and Christine took all that stress away. She was so good at keeping me and the bridal party calm and I knew I was in good hands. She and her team also handled the after wedding clean up, which was a HUGE help! We were able to spend the following day enjoying our friends and family instead of worrying about everything getting cleaned at the venue so we could get our deposit back.
Hiring a coordinator, even if it's just for the day, should absolutely be a part of any bride's wedding budget. Being stress-free the day-of is priceless! I highly recommend Christine at Lavish. Her prices and service were exceptional!

We hired Christine with Lavish Wed to coordinate our wedding on May 25th, 2013. Originally we were going to skip on hiring a coordinator but I couldn't be more pleased that we decided to go forward with coordination services with Lavish Wed! ...
We went with month of services (she started assisting way before "the month of") and got way more than what I expected. Her prices are reasonable and the service was great. I don't think Christine sleeps as she would promptly reply to emails over night. She was flexible with changes (even at the last minute) and did her best to ensure that my husband and I really got to enjoy our wedding!
Thanks Christine for all your help! You were a absolute pleasure to work with!!
