Where do I even begin?!
To whoever is reading this- a bride, soon-to-be husband, family member, or anybody else planning an event you are in the right place. I can assure you that you will want to give Tanya of Totally About Weddings and Events a huge consideration for whatever event you are planning. My husband & I hired her for our May 2023 Wedding & we couldn't have been more thrilled with our choice.
There are a handful of things that stood out to me (the bride) about Tanya during our journey of planning a wedding together. I found that she was extremely responsive, proactive about things you communicate you need assistance with, kind-hearted, hard-working, flexible, affordably priced (unlike many other planners I sought out), organized & truly fantastic to work with. Tanya helped me plan my wedding from beginning to end- she sought out each & every single vendor I used as well as made the initial communication with them. This part of wedding planning I absolutely dreaded but Tanya had all my vendors for me within 1-2 weeks time. She worked with me within my budget & negotiated prices & packages on my behalf with the vendors! In addition, communication with her was frequent if not every day & she was always very quick & thoughtful with her responses. I felt I could ask any question I wanted without shame or judgment & she would give me her honest & professional opinion in return. I planned my wedding with Tanya from across the country so communication was key. Tanya printed out, addressed, stamped & mailed all my invitations for me as well. They came out beautifully. I share this because I think this really shows how dedicated she is to her clients. Throughout the months of planning a wedding, I sent her every single piece of decor I used through the mail & she stored it & brought it to the venue for me. Each piece I sent was at the venue the day of the wedding & set up to my exact vision by her & her mom! This, once again, reveals her dedication & commitment to her clients as well as her organizational skills & ability to see a bride's vision.
As for the day of, she printed out timelines for each person in the bridal party & helped us all stay on track. I felt completely carefree the day of & knew that everything was being handled by Tanya & her mom. Family & friends also gave me compliments on how nice & attentive Tanya was.
If you made it this far through my review, I hope you are able to grasp just how grateful I am for Tanya for all that she did leading up to my big day & on my big day. You will not regret hiring Tanya for any event you have planned!
