Posh Girls Tying The Knot~ Fabulous Service
Amount: $1,485.00
Posted by: Karen Baker in Raleigh, NC.Posted: August 5th, 2010 08:08AM
Type: Wedding Coordination, Rehersal & ConsultName: Posh Girls -Tying The Knot
I hired Maggie Haines with Posh Girls- Tying The Knot- as my Day-of Wedding Coordinator after my husband and I had discussed with his brother all the things we had to do for our wedding. We thought we could cater the wedding ourselves, make all the decorations, and do all the decorating. My brother-in-law thought we were crazy. It turned out that hiring Maggie was the best decision we made! Though we did make our centerpieces, favors, and faux cake, Maggie took care of setting everything up and cleaning it up at the end of the night. She dealt with any last minute changes needed and even reminded me about my throw-away bouquet, which I had forgotten. The decorations at the reception site were absolutely gorgeous with draped tulle and lights, garlands of leaves, pumpkins, guords and potted mums.Maggie made sure my husband and I were happy and enjoying our party. She checked in with us throughout the night and even made up dessert plates for us so that we wouldn’t miss out on anything. She made sure the restaurant served warm apple cider for the cocktail hour and not boiled apple cider as well ensured the desserts were brought at the end of the evening instead of sitting out all night. She did such a good job and I don’t think the guests even knew she was there; she was so discreet and professional. Because of Maggie my husband and I were able to relax at our rehearsal dinner the night before and enjoy our perfect reception. We couldn’t have been any happier!

I used a great planner from CT, ESTOccsions. They weren't the cheapest but they weren't the priciest either. I found their attention to detail, clever cost effective ideas and overall I had a dream wedding that I didn't think I could. She was CT and we brought her to FL because at first we were going to get married in CT.

She also did my Invitations, RSVP Cards & Favors, she personalized my Champagne Bottles, everyone adored them!! My day was totally awesome, I had my dream wedding at a fraction of the cost that I expected to pay. I could not have asked for a better planner. If you are in the St. Lucie, Indian River, Martin or Palm Beach County areas, make Memorable Occasions your first choice. You can call Curlinda at 772-940-3759

I hired Jackie Sorkin of Southern California Wedding Planner to coordinate my wedding both day of coordination and some pre coordination. I was really impressed and pleased with her honesty and service. She really wanted us to save as much as possible and helped us shave a couple thousand dollars off at the last minute. Our wedding was perfect and I did get to experience a perfect day. Jackie was even able to create my wedding candy buffet at a fantastic price since she also owns custom candy buffet bars. I would use her over and over again but then again I hope to have just one wedding in my lifetime ;)

I had Tessa Kay Events plan my sister's engagement party as well as her wedding. The service was simply amazing. We were assinged two wedding coordinators who worked simultaneously on both events. I couldn't have asked for a better experience in planning both events. My sister's vision was executed with a combination of simplicity and elegance. They even did the wedding favors. BTW my sister couldn't have been more a happier and stress free bride, which was great for us!

My planner was excellent and handled all my concerns leaving me worry free. handled everything and went above and beyond for us. I honestly think I under paid her for the amount of services she provided us with. She is a legit pro and has the demeanor of someone who certainly knows her stuff, she is easy going but protects her couples against the highly inflated vendors of the wedding world. I used 90% of her suggested vendors, loved her ideas but most importantly, she listened to everything. Best planner ever

Naturally I surfed the net looking for a day of consultant for my wedding day, I ran across Kamileon Events and Shona was our planner. I can't imagine a better wedding experience. It was the best $2,500 we could have spent. I would recommend Kamileon Events to anyone for their events.

Type: Wedding & Pre Wedding CoordinationName: Briana Bloodworth
From the moment I said "YES" I knew who I wanted to plan our wedding, Dawn with Traditionally Modern had planned two other weddings that I had been part of and they each were true to the bride. I knew what I wanted a “1940’s” theme wedding however I had no idea where to begin. From the first meeting with Dawn I felt so at ease she saw our image, she knew what I wanted and how to make it happen with in our budget.
Dawn and her team are very fun and energetic and are very respectful of our opinions. Traditionally Modern handle everything from the save the dates to the décor of the reception. The day of our wedding could not have gone any smoother. Our wedding was more than a theme; it was a 1940’s super club; when I walked into the reception hall I thought that I had walked onto a MOVIE SET, Traditionally Modern took another wedding and made it “OUR WEDDING”. This team is hard working and very creative. For the services that were provided you can not but a price on it. Well worth everything,

Jackie Sorkin- My L.A. Wedding Coordinator & Planner
Amount: $1,295.00
Posted by: Camille Cohen in Palos Verdes, CA.Posted: July 1st, 2009 11:07PM
Type: Wedding Planning/ Day Of CoordinationName: Camille Cohen
My situation in regards to my hiring Jackie Sorkin to be my Wedding Planner is definitely not considered " the norm". I had a private ceremony on the beach and my reception was held at the Trump Golf Club in Palos Verdes. I hired a wedding planner from Los Angeles ( nameless, I'll be nice) who completely left me high and dry. One day we were discussing flowers and the next her phone was disconnected. I lost about $1,500 and when I searched online for another coordinator, I found Jackie. Don't believe everything you read but in this case "DO". She saved my day, saved my wedding and my sanity. I always asked her what I could do to thank her and she simply said, if you are pleased with my work and my service then a review would be great! Nothing is better then word of mouth so here is my review of this Awesome and so down to earth Wedding Planner. Don't get me wrong, she knows her stuff and then some and kept us all sane throughout. Even when my nerves got the best of me or my anxiety kicked in, she was always there for me to calm my nerves, give me a hug or assure me that everything would be great and it was. She comes highly recommended. Good Luck Brides.
PS- Always call referennces and check out the planners affiliatios like if they are members of ABC ( The association of bridal consultants)

Type: Wedding & Pre Wedding CoordinationName: Sari B. Gabbay
I hired Jackie Sorkin after reading another brides review on this same site. I was skeptical with hiring anyone to help me as I thought I could handle and do everything myself. I WAS TOTALLY WRONG! I never knew how much actually goes into planning a wedding and I was completely over-whelmed. My fiance Joey and I are both working professionals and just had no time to plan and the last thing we wanted to do on weekends was deal with vendors. Our wedding day was perfect! Jackie said it would be as flawless as possible and it certainly was. She handled everything and went above and beyond for us. I honestly think I under paid her for the amount of services she provided us with. She is a legit pro and has the demeanor of someone who certainly knows her stuff, she is easy going but protects her couples against the highly inflated vendors of the wedding world. I used 90% of her suggested vendors, loved her ideas but most importantly, she listened to everything Joey and I wanted and needed. Now I am happy to be another one of her brides who are happy to give her a glowing reference. She rocks and you will be so happy to have found her like we were. She is already on board to plan my 1st Baby's Baby Shower... when -ever that happens ;). Email her at Jackiesorkin@hotmail.com or email me for a reference. Saribcohen@gmail.com

I just think its outrageous to be quoted that price for the day of by itself. You don't even want to know what their overall quote was. I can't seriously consider a wedding planner if the cost is so absurd. And to think, that's a discount!

Type: Wedding and Pre Wedding BashName: Caroline & Gary's Wedding
Our first meeting was Awesome! I felt like I knew her forever. She is energetic, fun, and handled everything we needed with authority and respect. She is well respected in the Orange County & Los Angeles areas and has a long list of Celebrity Clients but when she knew we were on a budget she gave us a huge break and made it work for us. What a Mitzvah this was! She has integrity and I never felt that she wanted to take advantage of us in any way. ( Many Wedding Vendors or so called specialist WILL)She not only provided me with amazing service, she took care of everything. If anything ever went wrong, I sure did not know about it. My wedding was Flawless and the best day of my life! I would highly reccomend her. Email her at Jackiesorkin@hotmail.com or call 714 837 7119. Tell her Caroline Chow sent you! Don't worry, I asked her if I could rave about her on-line. If you want a pro with a great attitude who will handle business, call her. I am a super reference! Good Luck Guys! xoxo- Caroline

From the moment we met my planner Nikki was wonderful to work with. She knew everything I needed before the time came to do it. I could have never had such a smooth wedding if it wasnt for her. She spent as much time as needed, and her price was cheap! She did my full wedding plans for only 3000 dollars.. it was impossible to find anything like that anywhere. I strongly reccomend her for any event.
