Wedding Wire Review

A lovely review from a past client that perfectly describes what is involved with Day of Coordinating.  Thank you Gina and Gino!

Beth Pallet showed us in many ways that she was worth every penny of her $1200 “Day of” Planner fee (2016 price) long before the actual wedding day! First of all she knows the Manteo and Nags Head Area. We had our reception at Roanoke Island Festival Park and they recommended using her. She met with us months before the wedding to listen to our ideas and answer a myriad of questions. She laid out our reception site on paper so we could visualize the guest tables and associated locations for the buffet, bars, cake table, gifts, DJ, etc. We had to rent all our tables, chairs, napkins and some of the table cloths and she did all the estimation and prep work to get those items rented. Prior to the actual month of the wedding, she sent the busy couple, a detailed day of timeline starting with 8am hair appointments and ending with 10pm send off of the soon to be elated couple! The week of the wedding, she met with us and collected up the centerpieces and special decorations and games that we wanted at our outside venue. We also heard through the grapevine that she personally contacted every vendor that we hired (Hairdresser, DJ, Venue manager, Transportation Trolley, Priest, Musician, Florist, Rental Company and Photographer!!) Beth was so patient and professional working with our priest at the church rehearsal and then again during the actual wedding. In the morning, she busily worked with her team to place the chairs and tables, centerpieces and decorations at the Park. She was very organized throughout the ceremony. She stayed for the whole reception, answered many questions, made sure all the classic wedding events went off flawlessly and continued to coordinate with all the vendors. At the end of the evening, she coordinated and carried out the clean up. All of the decorations were neatly placed in a storage closet ready for us to pick up the following day. She even assured that leftover goodies made their way to the Bride and Groom’s cozy cottage!
