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 ... Read more 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!

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 ... Read more 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!

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 ... Read more selections. I'm also a big planner so I was honestly a little skeptical about what she could do that I couldn't! 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 ... Read more 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!!!

From the moment my husband and I got engaged we knew that we wanted our engagement and wedding planning process to be happy, stress free and fun. I knew that with our work and personal commitments ... Read more that it would be impossible without some help. We are entrepreneurs with huge commitments and lots of travel. We were bit overwhelmed at the idea of also planning a wedding with our already limited time. I immediately started searching out potential wedding planners and came across Sarah and VIP. I read her reviews and how many brides were completely gushing about how much Sarah helped them with their entire wedding and I knew in my gut she was the person I wanted to help us. Upon our first meeting I could tell that Sarah knew what she was talking about, had confidence, style and the warm personality that would be a pleasure to work with. Being a complete A-Type boss babe, I was skeptical that someone could be as particular and on top of things for my wedding as I knew I was going to be. I seriously couldn't ask for a more together, responsive, intelligent, on the ball gal as Sarah is. She is the key to our wedding going on without a hitch and with as low of a stress level as possible!! She is clever, quick thinking, funny and knows exactly ever single thing it takes to have a FABULOUS event. We opted for the full package and had the pleasure of working with Sarah for 5 months as we planned our 160 person wedding. She took us through everything in as much detail as we wanted. We knew quite quickly that we could trust Sarah's opinion and to take care of things on our behalf. Honestly, she has such great taste that I felt like she knew exactly what I liked. She was so concerned with our happiness that she wouldn't let us "settle" for anything less than me jumping up and down squealing with joy at anything from table cloths to flowers to centrepieces. She NEVER let us just make a decision to appease anyone or because we didn't find what we liked right away. She spent as long as it took to make sure we LOVED everything. She did all of this with a smile on her face, a calm demeanour and with pure joy. The thing is, you can see how much she loves what she does and that this isn't a job - it is her passion. I never once doubted Sarah or her knowledge or ability to get things done. I never wondered if she did something I asked or when I would hear from her. She was quick, organized and involved 120% - AND she was working on several other weddings at the same time! It was an absolute pleasure to work with Sarah and her team and every single gal at the wedding that met her said that they couldn't wait to get engaged to hire her! She is most honestly and truly a classy, smart and gorgeous wedding fairy godmother and anyone clever enough to hire her will be beyond blessed to work with her. Hiring Sarah and her team at VIP was THE best decision we made for our wedding. No exaggeration. Best of luck you gorgeous brides!!! Iman
