    absolutely AMAZING!

    Andrea is AMAZING! My wedding day wouldn’t have been what it was without her expertise, professionalism, creativity, and organization! She helped me with all the planing, set up, and tear down. She took care of everything on my wedding day so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Seriously, one of the best wedding decisions I made!

    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.

    A Rose Inspirations's reply:

    Kim! Thank you so much for these kind words. You & Jeremy were a pleasure to work with, not to mention your amazing bridal party & families. We are so honoured to have worked with you & wish you both so much happiness in your new marriage xo

    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!

    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.

    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.

    An incredible planner!

    I am not sure where to begin. What I know for sure is writing a review for Andrea will never come close to expressing how much we appreciated her and how phenomenal she was to work with. As soon as we got off of our initial phone call we knew Andrea would be the perfect planner for us. She completely understood our vision, asked all the right questions and was able to communicate perfectly with us. Andrea and the incredible A. Rose team found us the perfect venue, gave us amazing vendor recommendations, was on top of all the moving pieces and was incredibly responsive. She went above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined!

    Working with us through a pandemic - we had changing variables up until a week before our wedding. Andrea was prepared and ready with any information we needed and the best course of action to proceed. Leading up to the big day, Andrea was so hands on and helped us navigate some hiccups with our “non-negotiables” (in a much more professional way than I could ever have communicated with the venue!)

    During the day of the wedding Andrea had her superhero cape in tact - my husband and I were able to be 100% present on the day of the wedding. Andrea worked incredibly hard and everything went off without a hitch. It is cheesy - but it was a dream come true!

    As someone who is very…hands on and type A myself I wasn’t sure I initially needed a wedding planner when we started planning. HOWEVER I would not have succeeded without Andrea, she is worth EVERY single penny and more. Our whole family has so much love and appreciation for her and our guests flooded us with compliments! ANDREA IS THE BEST RUN DON’T WALK. We love you so much - thank you

    A Rose Inspirations's reply:

    Tori and Matt…
    I too don’t know where to begin with the two of you. The amount of love and honour I have in being your wedding planner in unmeasurable. Not only did we overcome some crazy COVID obstacles together but we had some really real moments that created some great memories and laughs along the way. I loved all of our late night calls, always with the first 30 minutes being us gabbing away about everything any anything. I am so happy that our professional relationship was founded on a friendship from the get go.
    Thank you so much for your trust, kind words and wishing you both so much mushy love… & BRUNCH.

    My Sister’s Dream Bridal Shower

    I collaborated with Andrea for the planning and execution of my sister’s bridal shower and it was a wonderful experience working with her on this!

    Her friendly and professional demeanour made her a pleasure to work with and she took time to figure out exactly what my vision was.

    Andrea helped me come up with the event design and theme, drew out a sample floor plan of the venue setup, identified food, materials and decor required, handled some communication with the venue contact and supported me with the coordination and logistics on the day of the event. She was always happy to answer any questions I had and provided me with her guidance related to different elements of the event.

    I would certainly recommend Andrea’s services to others.

    Thank you Andrea for all of your guidance and for helping me throw my sister her dream shower!

    Amazing, Incredible, Exceptional!!

    These are just a few words to describe Andrea and her team. Andrea was with us from day one, and went through all the ups and downs of planning a pandemic wedding with us. She was always there for me when I had questions about changing the plans, or needed advice once we decided to move our wedding to our backyard. Her attention to detail was incredible leading up to our day.

    On our day, words can't even express how grateful my husband and I are for Andrea and her team. They truly made all our wedding dreams come true, she executed every single one of my visions perfectly and went above and beyond in so many ways. We are forever grateful to Andrea for making our wedding day run so smoothly and look so beautiful!! We went looking for a wedding coordinator and found a friend for life!

    All our love and gratitude,
    Kendra & Aaron

I would definitely recommend Andrea to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator.
