My now-husband and I could not be happier with our choice of wedding coordinator! Wendy was a pleasure to work with, and she went above and beyond to finalize every last detail for our big day. She took care of all our month-of details such as creating timelines for everyone involved in the wedding, transporting decorations, and communicating with us and our vendors via email, phone, and in person to ensure that everything went smoothly. My husband and I did quite a bit of research to find a month-of wedding coordinator who could execute our vision on our budget, and we really appreciated the transparent pricing and customizable packages that the Savvy Bride offers. I highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a professional, organized coordinator to execute the details of their big day!

Wendy and her team were attentive to our every need and helped us in the planning process to stay on schedule, motivated me when I was frustrated and provided expert advice. Then on the day of, they executed the plans for day-of-coordination with ease and as a result, we were able to enjoy our day, instead of getting stuck in the details. We highly recommend the Savvy Bride! We were on a budget, and a very happy couple indeed. Be advised that just because you hire a planner, doesn’t mean that you won’t be doing any work going forward. But you will get help in the tasks that need to be completed, and introduced to vendors that come with recommendations instead of strangers. Staying organized is key, and the team was perfect at handling the issues at hand. Thank you for all your help guys!!!

OK, let me start by saying Savvy Brides is AMAZING! From our initial meeting with Wendy to discuss what they have to offer in day of coordination packages, I knew they were a perfect fit. I am an extreme perfectionist and I knew exactly how I wanted my day to be like. Wendy showed me a day of packet that she constructed for a prior wedding that had pretty much EVERYTHING listed that the bridal party would need, from what to pack, where to stand and a to the minute timeline of the day of events. My day was pretty much perfect and we definitely wouldn't have been able to do it without Savvy Bride! Save yourself some time and stress by booking them early. My only regret was attempting to do everything myself. I ended up booking 60 days prior to my wedding and could've definitely used their expertise prior.

A couple of months after getting engaged, I moved from St. Louis to Texas and that is when I knew that I truly needed to have a wedding planner/coordinator of some sort. I wanted to be able to still plan/design my own wedding, but I knew I couldn't do it alone (especially while living 12 hours away from where the wedding would be). For the most part, I had everything planned and picked out prior to meeting Wendy, but I definitely wouldn't have been able to pull everything together without Wendy's help. She is a true professional that knows what she is doing and she was so helpful, especially the last few months leading up to our big day. Wendy was always quick at responding to my millions of questions that I sent her way. Also, I don't think I've met someone as organized as Wendy is. She was a true blessing to our wedding and I am so thankful we spent the extra money to hire Wendy and her team. Hiring a coordinator was by far the best thing we did - it allowed us to truly enjoy our wedding and to not stress about the details/logistics. If you are getting married, do yourself a favor and hire Wendy! :)

Wendy saved my wedding! After a year of procrastination, I finally conceded to hire a wedding planner to get my wedding back on track. My mom found Wendy and her company, The Savvy Bride through The Knot's site as she came highly rated. During our first meeting, Wendy was warm, personable, professional, and fun! Throughout the following weeks and months, Wendy worked with me (and my procrastination tendencies), to create the wedding OF MY DREAMS. Actually, it was even BETTER than I had dreamed, it was pure magic. Wendy delivered 150% all the while being dependable, patient, professional, and encouraging. I wish I could relive my wedding over and over again, it was amazing! Now that it's over, I miss working with Wendy and her team! I highly recommend The Savvy Bride to any couple; for whatever kind of wedding you'd like.

As the Mother of the Bride, I will be eternally grateful to Wendy at Inspired Design Weddings & Events for assisting us in planning and executing the wedding of our daughter's dreams. Wendy is intelligent, personable, knowledgeable and efficient! I was impressed with her organization of the multitude of details we had to deal with and her skill in carrying out the day we had hoped for. She was responsive to every need along the way. As a working mom, it was a relief to have someone else who understood the vision our daughter had for her day and the experience to make it happen. From bottom of my heart, Thank You Wendy!!

Wendy and her team at Inspired Design Weddings & Events were amazing! If you are looking for an expert that helps and guides you, call Wendy. The team at Inspired Design helped my big day go flawlessly and perfect, just as planned! I hired Wendy based on her attention to detail from the first intro call that I had with her asking about her services and how she works with her wedding couples. I had done most of the planning already but needed that expertise help to get me through the last month and day/ weekend of planning perfect. Her ability to provide details and examples right off the bat was what had me impressed and knew out of all the wedding coordinators I talked with, she'd be the one to be able to help me. We met about a month and half before my wedding and we reviewed what I had done and what I still needed to do. Thank goodness for her check list that pointed out what I hadn't thought of yet and needed to think of! She provided great insights into what would be great decor touches and how to keep things flowing from a timeline.
She also was great in recommending other vendors from confirming that my florist, MarryMe Flowers, was great since she worked with them before to helping me find someone for dance lessons. Throughout those next weeks, she was always available via phone or email or text for an answer to a question or input on an idea I had or just checking in on me to make sure I was doing okay and seeing what other help I needed. She reached out to all my vendors and made sure they were all set. She really helped me stay on top of my planning so as I got closer to the wedding day, many things were planned and ready. The week of my wedding - the final touches were perfect with Wendy and her team's planning to keep everything from the rehearsal to the wedding ceremony & reception on-time, people, and vendors where they needed to be, and me calm and able to enjoy the day - and my family was free to enjoy the day as well instead of worrying about the details! She decorated an amazing reception!! See her facebook website for pics! The decor was gorgeous and just what I wanted but had no idea how to get it done without help and she pulled it off and even better than I had imagined!
Overall, I'd definitely recommend Wendy and her team (thanks, Ashley and Mandy!) for your wedding coordination needs, - big or small - they were awesome!

Ms. Wendy handled all three segments of the Elayda-Fegelmann Nuptials with competence, courtesy, and style. Because the bride was Roman catholic and the groom Jewish, there were several sensibilities to safeguard, and many customs unfamiliar to several segments of the celebrants and guests, but Wendy handled each with decisiveness and an extraordinary sensitivity. She was always courteous and respectful of all guests and the bridal party, as well as parents and celebrant of the wedding (myself). She had done her homework and knew what the families wanted, and what the church required, and did her part quickly and unobtrusively. She was considerate of all parties and went out of her way to maintain the decorum a sacred space demanded (during the rehearsal and wedding ceremony), and at the reception, she was one step ahead of several contingents (musicians, wait-staff, food service and Venue-officials.

OMG book her now! I searched and searched for a day-of coordinator, interviewed at least a dozen people, and after feeling despair I finally found her! After the very first phone conversation with Wendy, I stopped my search because I knew with confidence that she was "the one."
You should know, I use "day of coordinator" term only because that is what was on our contract. Wendy was SO much more than that. I live an hour from my venue, so she had helpful tips about the local area, saving me several trips, and helped with all the really tough decisions to execute everything flawlessly. The biggest help was all her experience with the venue I booked. She knew exactly what questions to ask and what to look for, things I would have never thought of.
I am a "Type A," so tend to be over-organized naturally, but she had my back at every turn. I know for a FACT that my day was perfect because of her. Even the few issues that did pop up were corrected quickly and flawlessly. Thank you Wendy!
I will also say that in addition to being good at her job, she has a stellar personality. I will miss working with her.

It was an absolute gift to work with Wendy. As the day of coordinator, she stepped into our planning process two months ahead of our Labor Day weekend wedding and helped us make sure we had every aspect of the day sorted out down to the minute. I am an interior designer by profession and live in the details, so I was a little bit nervous at first to let Wendy in on the planning that I *thought* I could handle on my own. How silly! Wendy immediately showed us her incredible knack for thinking of every possible detail you could ever consider and never missed a beat. She is amazing!! She also helped us to make sure that our plan for the whole day fit us and our guests perfectly, and never pushed any particular wedding custom on us, which we really appreciated (we had somewhat of an offbeat vision for our celebration). And as another bride mentioned, if anything went wrong on the day of, we will likely never hear about it.
My husband and I truly loved working with her throughout the entire process, and we know for certain that we could never have managed to enjoy our day without her and her wonderful team. She is kind, courteous, professional, so thoughtful and hard-working. Wendy afforded us the luxury of not having to worry about anything on our wedding day, which meant we were actually able to relax and have fun! This is a gift worth so much more than what we paid for her (incredibly reasonable) services. We strongly encourage hiring Wendy, you will not be disappointed.
