Sally was the best money spent for the entire wedding.
She helped me pick out each of my vendors (ALL OF WHOM were beyond amazing!) and helped me review contracts.
Along with the contract work - she helped me with every question, every thought and everything I needed when it came to planning the wedding.
Personality wise - we just got each other and I think that is really important in a Wedding Planner/Coordinator.
From the venue walk throughs through the day of - Sally made sure that my husband and I had the perfect day. AND WE DID.
I learned later about a few hiccups along the way and yet SAlly and her assitant Rosie were there to step in and I never even noticed.
Thank you for making our wedding day truly...
Sally was nothing but awesome! Our wedding went off without a hitch, and she was there to help with whatever I needed. I thoroughly recommend her services to anyone getting married in the Houston area!
Sally is amazing! The quality of service she provides for the price is unbeatable. She made sure that EVERY hiccup during the wedding was handled and ensured that my husband and I were stress free. She is also very good at calming your nerves during the planning process. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Sally was absolutely amazing. She was a counselor, planner, coordinator, and friend all rolled into one. I purchased her Day-of-Coordinator services, but she was there for me via email and phone for every step of the way to offer recommendations, input, and calming words. EVERYONE who has mentioned the wedding thus far has complimented Sally on her professionalism, and overall friendly demeanor. The day went by so fast, and I spent most of it floating on air, so I'm glad I had Sally and Rosie there to help my husband (!) and I figure out what, when, where, who, and how. At first I didn't think we would need a coordinator, and now I can't imagine our wedding without Sally and Rosie.
Sally was amazing! We hired Sally for day-of-coordination, though she was much more than that. Sally met with us multiple times, walked through our venue with us, came with us to bridal portraits, and was our constant cheerleader through the whole process. Her help and expert knowledge on the timeline and floor plan was a tremendous help, and it was unbelievably helpful to have Sally as the point person for all of our vendors. Rehearsal and day-of went so smoothly. I honestly don't even know what went on as far as coordinating and set-up. All I know is that we showed up and Sally made it all happen. We were hesitant about hiring a coordinator at first just because we thought we could do it ourselves, and we are SO glad we hired Sally. There are always things that come up that you don't even think about (Sally had to calm down some irate guests because of where they were seated; negotiated with a vendor on providing extra touches at our reception, etc.) Sally - we can't thank you enough! (And of course Sally's assistant Letty was a great help too!)
Monarch Wedding and Events Planning made such a huge difference to my wedding planning and the day of the big event. I chose the day of services but they ended up being so much more. They walked me through the entire day down to the minute before hand, answered all of my questions, made recommendations and had tons of advice. They were seasoned professionals through the entire process. But my decision to hire them really was confirmed the day of the wedding. It was such a load off of my mind to know that Rosie was at the reception venue waiting for me and my husband. She met us at the door with food and wine and water and was one of the last people we saw at the end of the evening with cake and extra meals waiting for us! Rosie not only made sure that we had everything we needed but she also made sure my mother was taken care of as well! I can't express enough how much I appreciated having her there and knowing that she was taking care of everything. We were free to dance and mingle with our guests and Rosie kept us on schedule. Working with Sally and Rosie took so much stress and worry off of my shoulders and allowed me to enjoy the reception instead of worrying about schedules and details. They were the picture of professionalism but were also down to earth and easy to talk to. I highly recommend them to anyone who is the market for wedding services.
I don't even know where to start, I had a whirlwind of problems planning my wedding, I was getting married at Chateau Cocomar and they are just barely getting established and my wedding planning was CHAOS!!! Anything that could go wrong went wrong during the planning process and Sally was truely the only thing that kept me sane!
She was VERY resonably priced, very professional and always at your dispoasal. She was very helpful during my planning process and always had my best interest at heart!
I couldn't of asked for a better Coordinator! She made my wedding day stressfree and magical!
Thank you so MUCH for all your help...
Sally was so great to work with!! She answered all of our questions and provided feedback in the many hesitations in planning a bicultural wedding! Also, it was priceless to know I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day because I knew Sally had a clear understanding of my vision of my wedding day. I literally sent her pictures and many emails of all the details I had in mind. She was very sweet and never did she make me feel uncomfortable to contact her with any type of question from big to small. I honestly feel Sally worked very hard she deserves every penny and I know most brides are on a budget but I even feel Sally's quality of work deserves more than she charges for!
Sally was so amazing!! She did more than I could ever thought that she was capable of doing! Ever since I signed with her, she answered every little random and silly questions I had about the wedding promptly along the way. I'd email her about something and if she was confused about my question, she'd call me to follow up. No matter how long it'd take, she always took the time to explain to me until I understood. She was always there for me! It was a major relief to have her and her friend helping out at my wedding. On the day of my wedding and right before I was going to walk into the chapel, one of my 50 layers of wedding dress came loose and partially fell out, and as a result I couldn't walk without tripping over that layer of the dress. I was so stressed out!! Sally came down to the bottom of my dress and sewed that layer back into the dress along with a bunch of pins! She did it so quickly yet meticulously and as a result my dressed looked perfect! My reception also went amazingly well under Sally's management. The wedding turned out to be even better than I expected and everything went smoothly. I definitely could have done it without Sally!! And best of all, she was so personable!!! I liked her from the start and she and I only got closer towards the end of my wedding. I'd highly recommend her for your wedding planning needs!!! And her service was also very affordable.
I would like to highly recommend Sally of Monarch Wedding and Event Planning. If you need a wedding coordinator who is efficient, highly organized, professional, tactful, friendly and energetic, as well as affordable, you've found all that with Sally. She's also just a super nice young woman and it was a true pleasure to work with her. She went way beyond our contractual agreement to ensure that my daughter's wedding went smoothly and was what she wanted. My role as mother-of-the-bride was stress-free because of Sally. Rosie, Sally's assistant, was just wonderful as well. A happy, happy bride and being worry free at my daughter's wedding-what more could I want? I'm busy recommending Sally to all my friends with as yet unmarried daughters. I want them to have a great coordinator at a great price like I did but I also hope to see Sally and Rosie at some future weddings. I want to give them some hugs and tell them again how wonderful they are.
Booking Sally was the best decision I made when planning my daughters wedding this past weekend. She is a true professional and a pleasure to work with. We booked a Day of Coordinator but Sally started her duties months before the big day. Handling contracts, talking and keeping up with vendors, coming on several appointments and was a great comfort. I was so relaxed the day of the wedding because I knew I was in great hands. There were lots of details and Sally did not miss a beat. Do yourself a big favor brides and mothers...hire Sally!!
From day one of planning/meeting with Sally, she was so friendly and ORGANIZED. I had 3 1/2 months to plan my wedding, and she didn't even hesitate. She told me what I need to get done and when I needed to do it, and kept me on track. I was completely scatter brained but felt so much more at ease after my meetings with Sally. She went above and beyond what was in her contract and always made sure I was getting what I wanted. She's amazing at what she does and Rosie was a HUGE help the day of wedding as well. I couldn't have done it with out them! :)
I had the pleasure of meeting Sally for the first time at my daughterâ€™s rehearsal. Even though it was a very small wedding with only matron of honor, best man and less than 50 guests, Sallyâ€™s rehearsal and Wedding day services were priceless. Sally is personable, enthusiastic, delightful and extremely professional. She is definitely in command and on top of all details. My observation is that having her in charge is of the upmost value. Instead of any relatives/friends trying to tell each other what to do, we all looked to her as the conductor. She clearly understood the brideâ€™s needs and desires, and put them as the number one priority.
At the rehearsal, she waited patiently as a couple members of the wedding party were stuck in traffic. She took that time to get to know everyone, and go over some last minute details. Once everyone was assembled, she walked us through giving us tips etc. The day of the wedding, she went out of her way to pick up the wedding cake balls, as the deliveryman was unavailable. She made sure everything with the bride was in order. She helped with the dressing of the bride, assisting with steaming the veil and made sure everybody had everything in place. She brought a sense of calm to the day by being the person keeping everything organized. It seemed to me we were running a bit behind, but Sally without making anyone feel rushed got us there right on time. My golden moment was right after the reception started and I noticed that she had seated the Bride and Groom, and provided them with plates of food. She also followed up with the other wedding party members to ensure all had taken time out to eat. At this point, I realized I didnâ€™t need to look after anything and proceeded to enjoy myself as a party guest.
Mothers of the Bride, if your daughter has not budgeted for someone like Sally then I suggest you offer it up as a gift. The returns to all involved are extraordinary.
Sally and her team did a great job! My wedding day was perfect, and I can say that Sally had a lot to do with that. She really listened to our wants/needs and made sure everything was communicated to the various vendors. She helped make the week before my wedding run smoothly. By the Wednesday before my wedding, I was relaxing and spending time with family and friends and felt great that I didn't have to run around getting things finalized. Sally took care of everything which really allowed me and my family time to ENJOY the entire weekend.
Sally with Monarch Wedding and Event planning did an amazing job of coordinating our wedding! I would highly recommend her to any of my friends. She alleviated a huge amount of wedding-day stress by coordinating with vendors, making a schedule for the day, dealing with little details, and ensuring that everything ran smoothly. I felt like I could absolutely trust her to make sure that things happened, and this was a huge relief. At the end, I felt like I got a huge value from the money I spent on her service. My mother was skeptical that I really needed to spend money on a day-of-coordinator, but after the wedding she realized everything that Sally did and understood what a blessing it was to have her on our team. Thanks!
Sally at Monarch Wedding & Event Planning is amazing! Our wedding went off without a hitch and everyone commented on how smoothly the wedding went. The two planning sessions we had with Sally were worth the cost alone. She went over every detail of the wedding with us and helped us prepare for numerous things we would have overlooked on our own. The timing of everything at the wedding was perfect and she had the whole venue cleaned very quickly so that my family only needed to load the car with gifts and wedding decorations. We received our full deposit back because Sally did such a great job making sure the venue was spotless when we left. We highly recommend Sally and Monarch Wedding & Event Planning.
Sally was such an amazing wedding coordinator! When I began searching I was surprised at the prices of most coordinators, but Sally's packages are just what we were looking for and her service is outstanding. She was so helpful throughout the planning process! She created an intenerary so that our day would be scheduled perfectly and we wouldn't have to worry about time or where/when events would take place. She answered countless emails about the smallest details and never had me stressed about the big day. Her services made it possible for our mothers to just attend the wedding and have fun, the moms didn't have to do a thing, Sally covered it all! I highly recommend using Monarch Planning for a stress free wedding!
Sally did an amazing job not only ensuring that our Big Day went smoothly, but also that we were happy throughout the experience. Sally definitely went above and beyond in helping us prepare and coordinate our wedding beforehand. We hired Sally because she had personal experience with our venue, which was a huge asset to us since we live out of state. We learned that planning a wedding is a major time commitment that leads to much stress and a great deal of emotion; many times Sally provided helpful prospective when tough decisions had to be made. While we originally hired her to be a day-of-coordinator, Sally offered much more time and energy than we ever expected. She was communicative and responsive early on in our planning. Sally also provided a great deal of wisdom and direction to us. She took her role seriously and dedicated so much heart that she felt more like a friend than a coordinator. We could not have survived our wedding without Sally and we truly recommend her for all wedding and event planning.
I highly recommend Sally's services to everyone of my friends. She was tremendously efficient and extra sweet and organized. My wedding would not have been the huge hit it was without her help! This lady is awesome!!
I was a DIY / budget conscious bride, which is not a small task for a busy gal. With grad school, career, moving overseas 5 months before the big day and both families living out of town, I needed help. Sally (Monarch Wedding & Event Planning) was exactly what I was looking for... a re-assuring, helping hand! She is incredibly energetic, caring, attentive and professional. The perfect combination for a Wedding Planner / Coordinator. Not to mention that the price is very reasonable. Monarch Wedding & Event Planning has to be the best value in town!
Sally encouraged me along and maintained a pulse check from a distance. She helped me find Vendors (including those unexpected last minute needs) as well as manage and coordinate the details. Arriving to the rehearsal with all the family in town, I felt so relieved to have Sally in charge. Then walking down the aisle with all the decor complete and everything in the right place, I knew I had picked the right coordinator. Finally, the reception and clean up could not have been a success without her.
It is such a fabulous feeling to wake up the day after your wedding with your new husband and realize your dream came true! I couldn't have done it without Sally. She is the necessary ingredient for your wedding day recipe!
