    The best gurantee of a perfect wedding day...

    The best guarantee of a perfect Wedding day is hiring
    Lavish Engagements. Georgia is so soothing and calm to talk to, in fact I hope I can talk to her again soon if I'm ever feeling stressed as she can instantly bring a bride/person back to a better state of well being! She can problem solve in a pinch all while making sure every detail is perfect and the bridal party/guests are happy. Donny was a wedding day hero as well and a true professional. They both always had a smile and were there to offer a drink or kindness without ever even having to ask. Every vision I had was perfectly put into place and if I had overseen something, rest assured Georgia was there to remind me or make a kind suggestion. I had a dream come true Wedding and although never plan on another Wedding in this lifetime, I can only scream to the Brides to be - DONT THINK TWICE AND HIRE LAVISH ENGAGEMENTS! I'm so happy with my decision in hiring this vendor and so impressed when my expectations were not only met but far exceeded.

    Olivia and her team = AMAZING

    My husband and I cannot say enough good things about Olivia and her team. For those on the fence about getting a coordinator for your wedding day - JUST DO IT.

    During the initial meeting, Olivia was so personable and we instantly felt comfortable with her and knew we were in good hands. Leading up to the big day, she was always willing to answer any question I threw her way (trust me, there was many). We did site visits and went over all the details so leading up the wedding day I felt confident.

    On the actual wedding day, it was so amazing to just have a peaceful morning getting ready and not have to get to the venue super early to set up, deal with vendors, etc. When we did show up to the venue, it looked beautiful with all the decor Olivia and her team thoughtfully put together. The day ran smooth from making sure the bride and groom squad got down the aisle, to herding 100 guests in for dinner on time.

    I would 110% recommend Lavish Engagements to help with your big day - we honestly couldn't have done it without Olivia!

    Superwoman

    Olivia is hands down the best! We lived in the US, and I can’t imagine doing it without her! She knows everything and everyone on VI and beyond, and handled every issue. I can’t recommend her enough!!

    Olivia made it easy!

    I had the pleasure of being part of arranging my son and daughter-in-law's wedding who lived in Nashville. The best thing we ever did was hire Olivia who handled everything professionally and with a genuine smile, no matter what we asked of her! Everything went smoothly including the flip from the ceremony to the reception. Olivia is exceptional and I highly recommend her.

    Worth it :)

    We booked Lavish for day of month of coordination and it was soo worth it! I wanted to relax on my wedding day and I was able to do that with confidence in knowing that everything was in good hands. Sheena had to troubleshoot a last minute switch from outdoor to indoor ceremony due to weather and it turned out perfectly:) Olivia and Sheena were extremely accommodating and I would definitely recommend them :)

    Hiring Olivia was the best decision I made, and best money spent from our wedding budget. I honestly would not have been able to pull the wedding I had off without her. I'ma busy mom of 3 boys and had no idea the work involved in planning a wedding. My wedding turned out BEAUTIFULLY!!!! It was such an amazing, special day, and would highly recommend hiring Olivia as your wedding planner. Her service is worth every penny.

    I would highly recommend Olivia and her team. I didn't have to worry about a thing because I knew Olivia and her team were on it. I was left to enjoy our wedding day with no phone calls or questions about the set up. She was worth every penny and I encourage every bride to do the same! Without a doubt, hiring her team was the best decision I made :) In the photo I attached you can see Olivia going above and beyond... she fluffed my dress right before walking up the aisle... something I wouldn't have done!

    Awesome Month-of Co-ordination

    Olivia was very helpful on our day - she guided the rehearsal and also guided everyone on the wedding day and made sure everything went off without a hitch! I loved having Olivia there and she kept me calm so I was able to just enjoy the day!

    Absoutely awesome!

    Olivia was amazing to work with! Hiring her was like the best decision ever. She made it so we didnt have to worry about anything and could just show up and enjoy the day! We are not from the island and she was the perfect person to plan and organize everything for our wedding. We could not be happier with her services, her professionalism and execution of our day was amazing. She is incredible at what she does!

    Olivia and her team did such an amazing job pulling our special day together!! It was such a relief to have her arrange a timeline a month prior and engage with all the other vendors to take the last minute stress off of our shoulders :) Our wedding would have not been the same if it weren't for Lavish Engagements! Thank you so much Olivia! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for extra help, wedding planning, or co-ordination for day of. You will not go wrong choosing Olivia Cross! Xo
