  • Wedding: August 2015

Our wedding is still 2 weeks away. Our planner has been worth every penny. She’s even helped negotiate better deals with other vendors – so she’s almost paying for herself in that way too. We have a full service contract with her, but I think even a day of person would be worth the trouble. 

We only interviewed 2 companies. We picked the one we liked best and who actually seemed to LISTEN to us. If you’ve found 10 to interview, you must be in a bigger city than Tulsa!  

I wouldn’t bother with the people who aren’t emailing you back. Imagine how stressful it would be if you hired someone and they didn’t respond to your emails in a timely manner – that’s my PET PEEVE. But I don’t think it’s appropriate to review a vendor you haven’t hired, either. Maybe they’re on vacation or aren’t taking new clients right now or something?

jrzbride2016:  FIs sbrither and sister in-law are total nightmares. His brother said he’d get fi so smashed on our wedding day that it’d be illegal to sign the marriage certificate so that way our marriage isn’t valid. He was “joking”but seeing as he was plastered during his ceremony and he can make potent drinks seem impotent…  So for 4000 I get a wedding planner, ceremony and reception set/ break down, a guy to watch the groomsmen and ensure that the drinks aren’t devil’s creations someone with me. And the planer to deal with the stress that is fis family well don’t tell my wedding planner I’d pay more than that lol

I had a planner for partial and full for last month…totally worth it!  She booked my appointments and founs venues to match my venue…her first one was perfect.  She put together our schedule and did all the finalizing with vendors which relieved my stress level.  Due to health issues we has a diffwrent say of planner who was equally great. Day of making sure everything was set up…and on time.  My wedding was perfect!  At least as far as I can tell.  She scooped up all of our stuff did centerpieces and all and returned everything to us the next day.  If not for the planner I would not have been as relaxed or able to spend as much time with people the week of the wedding…I got to go scuba diving 2 days and that was worth it!

  • Wedding: October 2015

My wedding is two months away (!!) and we hired wedding planners – after initially interviewing them for DOC services, we liked them so much we hired them for vendor assistance, event design, and full planning services. They were $2500 for a team of two planners. Worth EVERY penny. There are so many things that I would have forgotten to do, and logistics in general stress both my fiance and I out. They have definitely been the best money we’ve spent on the wedding, and have played a HUGE part in keeping us chill through the process.

lindsayE:  I’m looking at getting married in Claremore or Pawhuska but live out of state.  Would you recommend your planner for my situation?

bywater:  Yes!  I live in Tahlequah and am getting married in Tulsa.  They’ve been GREAT at helping me arrange meetings and set stuff up from afar.  Granted, I’m not as far away as you are, but they’ve saved me so much time on the phone and in the car.  

Here’s their website: http://www.eversomething.com/ 

One of them just had a baby and is on maternity leave, so they might be a little slow to respond to new emails, but they are awesome.  I highly recommend them.  I know they’ve done weddings in OKC and in places outside of Tulsa, so I bet they’d be willing to work with you in Claremore or Pawhuska.
