Made my day special
If you are on the fence on hiring a wedding coordinator for your big day, do it! Our wedding would not have been the same without Andrea and her team. Leading up to our day, Andrea was always available to answer questions and offer advice. She is so wonderful to work with. She is professional, creative and an expert. She is empathetic to how you are feeling and will completely put your mind at ease. If you have a problem, she will solve it. Trust me! My entire wedding party was blown away by how amazing she was. Honestly, my wedding was weeks ago and they're still raving about her.Sent on 15/12/2019

A Rose Inspiration - Best decision we made about planning my daughter's wedding!
I am the Mother of the Bride (MOB) and cannot rave enough about Andrea and her services. We used Andrea for full planning of my daughter's Wedding. Andrea was sensitive to my daughter's needs and wishes while keeping in mind our budget and was able to deliver a beautiful, fun and romantic event capturing the mood that my daughter envisioned. The wedding party, family and guests all enjoyed the Wedding thoroughly. Andrea was key in negotiating contracts with the venue and vendors, sourcing wish list items like Marquee Letters, and managed the many details involved in putting together the Wedding which entails many moving parts. Andrea's people skills came in very handy and we left it to her to deal with some difficult issues and negotiate compromises that needed to be dealt with. She did all this with grace and calm, taking the stress out of the planning. Our guests couldn't compliment us enough on how lovely the Wedding was and how it fit so well with the personalities of the bride and groom. Thank you Andrea for making the Wedding a huge hit!Sent on 27/06/2019

Couldn't have done it without Andrea's help
My husband and I hired Andrea to be our month-of coordinator for our wedding back in October, 2018 and she was perfect! Not only was Andrea dedicated and thoughtful, but she showed a genuine interest in getting to know us making sure my husband and I executed our vision for our wedding day. Andrea’s constant reassurance and down-to-earth advice made us feel confident that she knew our vision and would help us execute it no matter what happened on the day-of.Sent on 16/01/2019
During our initial call, Andrea listened to what we had planned already and, importantly, asked all the right questions to make sure we hadn’t missed anything. For example, while we had arranged a shuttle to and from our hotel, she made sure that our shuttle times matched the profile of our guest list. She was able to pinpoint things we had forgotten to consider and gave us advice on the last minute items we needed to look into.
She called all of our vendors, confirmed all the timelines, and identified and resolved several scheduling problems before we knew they actually existed. Also, much to my horror and then relief, several weeks before the wedding my husband and I realized we had forgotten to give our caterer the updated start time for dinner. The relief came when discovered that Andrea had already identified that problem and fixed it before we even knew that there was an issue.
We had to reschedule several of our calls with Andrea due to our work schedules. Andrea however was really flexible and worked with us to find times we could connect.
In the weeks before the wedding, we worked with her to finalize our schedule for the day. She took the time to go through the drafts with us and make changes as we discussed them. It was this attention to detail and her experienced advice that really helped us finalize the plans.
Andrea also worked really well with our family and other vendors. Our ceremony was not a standard format. We knew we would rely on Andrea’s help and advice to get the ceremony to flow. Our officiant also had a role in this and, during the rehearsal, the two worked together to make sure all the basis were covered. Andrea acted as a true partner dealing with not only us, but the other vendors; helping ensure they had what they needed to be successful.
On the day of the wedding Andrea and her assistant took all the planning stress out of our day and finished arranging everything at our venue. This allowed me I got ready with all my family and bridal party. A lot of little things happened in the background that I only became privy to after the fact. We thought we’d know exactly where all our décor belonged, but in the end we had a lot of pieces where we relied on Andrea and her assistant to have the eye to set it up beautifully. All I knew at the time was that I showed up for my ceremony and the venue was perfect.
When our venue owners became difficult to deal with on the day off, Andrea was firm but professional and made sure our wishes were represented. She really helped us deal with a situation that otherwise could have turned nasty and emotional between the venue and our families. She knew when to involve the bride and groom and when to take care of things in the background so that I didn’t even know they were happening.
Thank you Andrea for all your help, we couldn’t have done it without you!

I hired Andrea less than three weeks out from my wedding. As I have an events background, I didn’t need full planning. Andrea was always prepared, responsive and a total joy to work with. She was able to pick up on my requests and managed the day beautifully. As with any event, there are always hiccups, but I was not bothered with them as Andrea managed to work through them seamlessly. I would highly recommend Andrea for her professionalism, patience and helpful demeanour.Sent on 28/12/2017

Our favourite human
Hands down, the best investment we made to our wedding. Andrea made the day just so beautiful and run so smooth! She executed our vision and then some!!! Particularly during covid, it was so hard to navigate all the restrictions and policies to make a wedding happen, but Andrea everything look easy. She is professional, skilled and also so friendly and lovely! We highly recommend!Sent on 14/11/2020
A Rose Inspirations's reply:I have no words! Thank you so much for this & for letting me be a part of your day. It’s not easy being a covid couple let alone trusting someone else to take the reins. So much love for you & Alec!
