Happy to report that our wedding last Saturday went smoothly, with minimal hiccups - it would not have gone the way it did without Erica and Richard's help in coordinating our wedding. Both of them are super fast in responding to our (many) questions, and they continually demonstrated a willingness to go the extra mile for their clients.
In the months and weeks leading up to our wedding, Erica and Richard attended our church rehearsal and the meetings with the hotel banquet team, to ensure that the day would run smoothly. They set up multiple WhatsApp groups to coordinate vendor payments, meal requirements and arrival timings. They also offered practical solutions such as handmade ribbons for car doors and assisted with the setup of our reception tables - they didn't have to, but they did.
Often, people have the misconception that wedding coordinators / planners are an extravagance - but when you're bogged down by logistics, you simply can't enjoy your big day. There were some booboos on the part of the hotel prior to the banquet, but Erica and Richard took care of these and we weren't even aware that anything was wrong until they debriefed us when everything was over, so we could provide our feedback to the hotel and obtain some form of compensation. Yet another sign of their "client first" perspective!
It also helps of course that their charges are super reasonable! They've already impressed a few members of our bridal party, and we would recommend them to everyone we know. A million thanks for your help guys, and all the best to you both!!
