So worth it!
Sarah was amazing!! She went above & beyond to make sure that the day went smoothly, from calming my nerves when the rain started to fall for my walk down the aisle, to helping me bustle my dress, to helping us come up with a timeline that flowed so smoothly. To fixing any minor hiccups that happened without us even noticing. I would definitely recommend her everyone!Sent on 01/08/2019

VIP Event Consultants Great Choice for Day-of Coordination and Planning from Afar
We hired VIP Event Consultants in December 2018 to assist us in planning our wedding, as well as performing day-of coordination in June 2019. We were able to get a Partial Planning Package, which was perfect for us since we had already done some of the major planning on our own, but still needed assistance with other critical aspects such as decor/rentals and floral. Our wedding planning also had additional challenges due to the fact that we (the bride and groom) live in Ontario, but the wedding was to take place in Edmonton, Alberta.
We met with Sarah Mitchell, who is the head of VIP Event Consultants and an absolute pleasure to work with. She helped us immensely with the main struggle we had as part of our wedding planning process: designing decor. After a relatively brief conversation about our ideas, she came back to us with fully-planned table settings, and preserved the essence of our aesthetic in the centerpieces. She also sourced the rentals for this decor, as well as a florist to handle all the bouquets and centrepieces we required for our wedding day. Our decor and floral was beautiful and spot-on. It was better than what we had envisioned. We are so grateful to Sarah and her team for acing this aspect of our wedding. It would have been extremely difficult to coordinate those aspects from Ontario, but I could trust that we were in good hands with Sarah.
The day-of coordination of our wedding was similarly flawless. Sarah designed a great schedule for us that fit in everything we wanted. We were pretty close to being on-schedule all day, and Sarah and her team took care of the set-up/take-down details that would have been a huge hassle otherwise. Sarah clearly has an excellent rapport with many vendors in Edmonton, including our venue (the AGA). We heard from our other vendors that she was a pleasure to work with from their perspectives as well.
We would definitely recommend VIP Event Consultants/Sarah Mitchell to any couple planning a wedding. VIP Event Consultant’s services are well-worth the (very reasonable!) price. We were definitely better off for having her assistance!Sent on 07/07/2019

Couldn't have done it without VIP Consultants!
Our wedding was beautiful, fun, and stress free! The credit to its success must go to Sarah and her team at VIP Consultants. Sarah did an amazing job in the organization – her many years of experience, and knowledge of the “wedding market”, clearly showed as she helped us select a perfect venue, pick the decorations, keep us on budget, chose the best vendors, and take care of all the little things that we would never have thought of. I was regularly reminded how busy wedding planning could be, but Sarah was always there to take care of things and make it easy. Thanks Sarah and team for the hard work and the amazing wedding you organized and pulled off!Sent on 26/05/2018

I can't recommend Sarah and Carlyna enough. We were hesitant about getting wedding planning or coordination services because we wanted to stick to a budget and we'd already done a lot of our vendor selections. I'm also a big planner so I was honestly a little skeptical about what she could do that I couldn't!Sent on 09/11/2018
That said, from our first meeting with Sarah, we knew it she would be worth it. Her wealth of experience is a goldmine: when she gives her advice or opinion, you can absolutely trust it. She worked with us to find a custom package that met our needs and our budget. She was always available and easy to communicate with, and she never made us feel like we were asking silly questions. She listened to our ideas and never suggested something that didn't line up perfectly with our vision. Somehow, she understand exactly what we were going for.
In the weeks and months leading up to the wedding, Sarah gave us peace of mind: she remembered things we forgot, offered her trusted top picks out of overwhelming vendor options, pointed out issues before we'd even thought of them, facilitated vendor communication, solved problems before we had time to freak out about them, and used her wealth of experience to save us time and money. She took on a large part of the mental load so that we didn't have to!
Sarah and Carlyna did the same thing for the wedding itself. They were friendly and organized; our officiant even said that she'd never had a ceremony rehearsal go so smoothly before! They took care of set up and tear down, and knew all the answers so that if anyone asked me a question the day of, I could just say, "I dunno, ask Sarah or Carlyna!" It was such a relief to know that they had everything under control, and it meant that our families could actually enjoy the day without having to worry about a thing. Without them, the day would have been more expensive, more chaotic, and more stressful. If you're thinking about day-of coordination, partial planning, or design consultation, you cannot go wrong with VIP Event Consultants.

From the moment we got engaged, my husband and I knew we wanted our day to be stress free and fun. We decided to hire a day of coordinator. We hired Sarah and Carlyna to help us with our day. It was absolutely the best decision we made. They took care of everything the day of, set up, managing who goes where and when, and fixing any issues that may have arose during our day. Sarah was so easy to work with and was always there, just a quick email away. She is so diligent and gets everyone organized in a timely manner. We were so lucky to have found her, our day went off without a hitch. I would recommend her services to anyone getting married. Funny, smart, on the ball, organized and more, she is AMAZING!! Her knowledge and experience with weddings will help anyone have the day they dream of. Totally worth the investment!!!Sent on 19/07/2017
