Lauren Saves the Day
Lauren exceeded our expectations in every area.
- Fair pricing
- Great communication
- Started the process early to get us thinking of things we needed to plan for
- Had a comprehensive list of key milestones and actions
But on the day of is where they really helped us out. The highway was closed for 5 hours on the day of our wedding, throwing off our schedule. Lauren was in constant communication with the venue, with us, and with our guests, providing updates and working with the vendors to ensure everyone was flexible to adjust the schedule.
When we had assumed we would be getting married a different day, Lauren did an amazing job and saved the day!
Eron is amazing!
Summer Wedding - Day it Coordination & Decorating
The mother/son dance song was played during the cocktail hour and my husband had to run over and change it himself.
Coordinator was nowhere to be found after ceremony to get bridal party & photographers organized to leave ( we left 45mins late for photos )
It was our bridal party’s first time being in a wedding and there wasn’t much communication for what they should do. (My maid of honour wasn’t told to fluff out my dress at the alter) I feel like there could have been better communication on the day of (every time we went to find our coordinator we couldn’t) We do acknowledge that things don’t always go smoothly and perfectly and our Coordinator was super sweet it just feels like we paid her to decorate tho. :)
The day itself and the wedding planning went fine, but Encore Events could've done better.
Firstly, Eron, our point of contact at Encore, frequently canceled our meetings at the last minute. It seemed like she often forgot about scheduled appointments and needed to reschedule, contacting me only on the day of to inform me she wouldn’t be able to make it. Even after rearranging, she still arrived late for a couple of them. This lack of punctuality and reliability already concerned me and didn’t give me much confidence in the team. Moreover, Eron often overlooked details that had already been discussed in email threads with vendors and contracts, including fundamental aspects like the end time of our event. On one occasion, she even sent me wedding details meant for another bride with the same name. These occurrences indicated a significant lack of attention to detail during the wedding planning process.
One particularly frustrating incident was the coordination of decor drop-off. Eron requested us to deliver the decor early to the venue, assuring us that she would handle everything from there. However, on the day, she was unprepared and didn't have the necessary equipment to move the items. As a result, our point of contact had to assist with bringing the items into the venue, which was unexpected and inconvenient, as we hadn't informed them of this change in plans. Proper communication beforehand could have prevented this issue.
The teardown process was equally problematic. Eron failed to inform us that our venue didn't allow for garbage disposal, and the teardown fee we paid didn't cover this aspect, which we were not informed of beforehand. We had provided a point of contact for decor pickup only, and Eron had not briefed us for the fact that this person would also be responsible for removing the garbage from the venue. Consequently, the contact we provided wasn't prepared to handle the garbage removal, leading to our bridal party having to step in and arrange for the garbage to be taken away in several guests' cars. This was highly disappointing and unacceptable.
In addition to all of the above, poor communication was a concern raised by one of our vendors. They found Eron to be either uncommunicative or inexperienced, which resulted in difficulties handling certain situations leading up to the event.
Again, while the day went reasonably well, I can't help but feel that the Encore team could have done better. Their lack of attention to detail, communication issues, and oversight of crucial aspects left us feeling dissatisfied with their services. We genuinely appreciate our guests' involvement in helping with the teardown, but we believe that this shouldn’t have been necessary and we could have hired another team at a lower cost, and they might have performed just as well, if not better, than Encore did.
I hope this feedback helps the Encore team understand the areas they can improve upon to provide a better experience for future couples.
Lovely to Work With
100% worth the money!

Meet the team
For the past five years, I've been a part of the Encore Events team, and I'm thrilled to contribute to this exceptional group. Being an event planner with a primary focus on weddings, collaborating with our clients on such a momentous day is truly the pinnacle of my role. Every event holds its distinctiveness, a personal touch that holds immense significance for our clients. My responsibility is to guarantee that they relish every single moment of it!
In 2017, I followed my passion in the business world and re-entered the industry that had always held my heart. This journey began in July of that year. Back then, I was uncertain whether the business would thrive, but I was determined to take the chance. Throughout my prior career, I had always cherished wedding planning and coordination, a standout facet of event planning. Building upon my five-year stint as a small business owner, I recognized the winning formula we possessed.
Now, with the 2023 season drawing to a close, we can proudly reflect on having orchestrated and managed numerous weddings. Navigating through two years of pandemic-induced closures, we managed to weather the storm and resume operations in 2022, all while maintaining an upward trajectory. I meticulously assembled my team, considering their expertise, personal aspirations, character, and capacity to stand as leaders in the field.
As we approach the conclusion of the 2023 season, our enthusiasm knows no bounds for what the 2024 season holds, including our expansion into Kelowna and the Okanagan region.
Upon joining Encore, I was brimming with enthusiasm about the chance to expand my insights and skills within the realm of weddings. It has been an absolute delight collaborating with this exceptional team. Our camaraderie fosters an enjoyable atmosphere, and witnessing the evolution of each unique love story and its realization through our meticulous efforts is genuinely fulfilling. Progressing to the role of Senior Coordinator in just five years has brought me immense satisfaction, and I eagerly anticipate my ongoing journey with the team!
