I decided I needed a day-of coordinator about 2 months before my wedding, mainly because I was planning it from out of state and it was just getting to be too complicated. When I hired Jordan I didn't realize that I would be getting MUCH more than a day-of planner; she helpedme with so much, and she started the day I hired her! She would give me advice on everything from decor to tipping vendors, she gave me piece of mind when I had NO idea what I was doing, and she went so far as to buy christmas lights at 3pm the day before my wedding because I decided I wanted some on the terrace of the reception venue, and then she HUNG them for me (on trees and bushes, in the freezing cold). Her husband went to the store right before my cocktail hour when she realized the markers I got for my guest sign weren't the right color, and her and her husband stayed late to clean and pack up the venue so that my family and I could leave with the other guests. When I first told my parents i had hired a wedding planner, I think they were a little offended because they thought they could handle all the little details. The day after the wedding, they said that hiring Jordan was the best money I had spent on the entire wedding, and I couldn't agree more. I'm going to recommend Ever After Planning to all my friends and family who get married in the future. They're the best!!
