Alissa was my day of coordinator for my wedding this summer and I cannot begin to express what a wonderful experience it was. Leading up to the day and on the day of, I had such little stress that my friends and family commented on it, and that was largely due to Alissa. She is extremely organized, she has an amazing user friendly online platform that quickly replaced my own excel spreadsheets, and she was incredibly flexible, which was key given my husband and I do not live in MI. Overall, she had a good working relationship with all my vendors and knew exactly what I needed on the day and handled absolutely everything from providing tums to packing up all the gifts. Her services were probably one of my favorite things I spent money on for my wedding as it definitely made a difference in how I experienced the day. Oh, and she is a sweetheart as well!KAYLA L.
Alissa with Vows & Veils was amazing and an imperative part of our wedding planning team! I was planning my wedding while living outside of the country and could not have done it without her! She thought of everything and brought up ideas/questions/potential problems that I didn’t even think of. My mom has planned many, many parties and we thought we had things handled… We hired Alissa because we thought it couldn’t hurt and let me tell you my mom and I have said so many times how we are so glad that we did and we couldn’t have done it without her! Alissa stayed around the night of the wedding to just make sure everything ran smoothly and was a Jack of all trades! At one point we ran out of liquor and she made a run to the local liquor store for us! I highly, highly suggest her and her service to everyone I know that is getting married as she was an awesome help and great at diffusing unavoidable wedding stress!ALEX B.
To this day, I will tell every person I meet who’s planning a wedding that getting a day-of coordinator was the best decision I made during planning, and I definitely think that’s because of how competent, reliable, and awesome Alissa is.
From the planning ahead of time to the rehearsal dinner organization, to the very end of our special night, when she made sure we could go have fun with friends while our venue was deconstructed and decorations made their way to our hotel room – Alissa was there and making it all happen. We couldn’t be more grateful or happy to have had her there.COLETTE A.
I hired Alissa for 2 weddings in the last 5 months! For the first wedding I hired her as a day of coordinator only, in which she did an awesome job of helping me through how to organize the first wedding for any of my kids.
This most recent wedding I hired her once again as a day of coordinator, but also ended up having her hire extras to help work the wedding. This was a backyard wedding, that had a lot of last minute changes due to 100% chance of rain! Her staff was all great, friendly respectful and clean cut!
Hopefully I will get a bit longer break before my next kid gets married! But when that day comes, if I am responsible for the wedding for my son, then I will be hiring Vows and Veils for full service! She made sure that I was actually able to enjoy the weddings of both my daughters! I cannot day enough nice things about Vows and Veils!CATHY M.
Alissa was so helpful, accommodating, and wonderful! As a bride, you often underestimate how many decisions and issues you have to deal with on your wedding day. The same goes for Mother of the Bride! My mom and I asked Alissa to handle day-of coordination because we knew we would be so overwhelmed with last-minute decisions, and guess what?! We were right!
Apparently, there were 80 things and decisions that needed to be made on my wedding day, but instead of dealing with them, Alissa handled it all! In fact, I didn’t even hear about these things until the day after!DEANNA B.
Alissa absolutely went above and beyond for our wedding! I met her at a bridal show and I could not imagine my wedding without her! I felt so at ease having her! She LOVES love and you can tell in the work that she does! I tell all of engaged friends about her! She is so prepared and organized, something that I am not! She made everything easy and simple and not overwhelming!STEPHANIE J.
As a bride, and the first in my family to get married, the wedding planning process was overwhelming at first, but being the type-A person I am, I made a timeline and started crossing things off the list.KELSEY P.
Things were going fine until about 6 months before the wedding when I realized I was literally the only person who knew my vision for the wedding day, and I didn’t want to be putting together the cookie table, telling vendors where to set up, and dealing with any last minute changes. That is when I found Alissa. I never would have thought I would have hired a wedding coordinator, but in hindsight, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
We hired Alissa to do our day-of coordinating and I can’t imagine re-doing the day without her. She was always flexible in our meeting times and locations, which is nice for a couple who does so much traveling. She asked questions about things I hadn’t thought of and provided advice on things I didn’t know I needed. She contacted all of my vendors to make a wedding day plan and did so without my involvement, allowing me to focus on other tasks.
Even on the day of, she was able to make the day go seamlessly as she worked her magic to make our day perfect. All of the minor hiccups I found out about later on were well covered up during the day (even to the one who planned it all) because of her perfectionism and great communication. She did things I didn’t even ask her to do and was the fairy godmother I never had. I absolutely cannot say enough good things about Alissa and Vows & Veils, and I promise if you book with her you will not be disappointed.
