Testimonials

We love our clients, and they love Monarch Wedding Planning

Here is what they have to say,

 

Alison did an INCREDIBLE job coordinating our wedding. She was so on top of everything, she made sure I had everything planned out well in advance of our date. Even though we only did the day of/month before service, as soon as we booked her she made sure we were on track with our different vendors, and even met some vendors on her own for us since we live several hours away from our venue. The day of the ceremony, she made sure everything went off flawlessly! Couldn’t have been happier with Alison, couldn’t recommend her more 🙂

I am a wedding professional myself and I just had to share the professional experience we had with Alison, Monarch Wedding Planning. We work with many wedding planners but the communication and experience was the BEST!
Our bride felt comfortable and in capable hands thru her wedding planning process because of Alison’s attention to details.
We would highly recommend Monarch Wedding Panning to our couples and couples who want a worry free wedding day!
Bravo to Alison…she lives up to her name and treats all her couples like Royalty!
Many many thanks,

Alison was amazing!!! She helped our vision come to life in such a short amount of time. We hired her as the “month of” coordinator and she was more than that. She reviewed all of our vendor contracts, met with us months before the wedding, had phone chats whenever we needed and was always on call when I would message her. I showed up with everything I had for the wedding and she made sure there was a place for it. Everything was organized and went so smooth on wedding day. She made sure everything and everyone was on track and we had just what we needed. Alison has such a sweet and calm personality that it really helped me as the bride stay focused and know that I was in good hands. Alison was a dream and I would hands down recommend her and her services. Thank you Alison for all that you did to make our dream wedding come to life.

Alison was so beyond amazing! My wedding went on without any hiccups (at least that’s how I felt). I know behind the scenes it was hectic and things didn’t go 100% according plan, as nothing ever does, but I never felt that. Alison was prepared, sending out timelines and communicating with all the vendors. I like to be in control and it is extremely hard for me to hand that over to someone else. However, I also didn’t want to feel any stress on my wedding day and simply just wanted to enjoy it and I did! I trusted Alison completely to do manage everything and she did such a perfect job! Could not recommend her more as a wedding planner!

Finding Alison was the very first thing we did for our wedding, and let me tell you, it was the best decision we could have made. Planing a wedding is hard, there are A LOT of details to keep track of…. especially during the actual day of. You want to be relaxed and present on your big day. Alison was there to make sure everything ran smoothly, and it did. How many people can say that their wedding went smoothly? With no snags and everything on time? Ours did. She was there to coordinate with the vendors, create a timeline, think of details that we would have never thought of. She’s planned many weddings, trust me, there are things that only experience can bring. During the night of we were able to relax and socialize with guests, and when it came time for a bouquet toss, or first dance…. she was there to tell us where to go. If you are getting married, go with a planner….. and go with Monarch. Five stars!

 Recently my daughter had her amazing wedding at a winery in Paso Robles. My daughter and my wife and I met and retained Alison from Monarch Wedding Planning to help organize and plan my daughter’s special day. Immediately we all felt confident that Alison would do a great job. Even though Alison was supposed to provide only the Day of Coordination Service she did so much more. She was so organized and worked with my daughter for several months before the day, preparing ‘to do’ lists, timelines and keeping open and ongoing communication with all the vendors. When the wedding day finally arrived Alison was excellent and on tas, she made sure everything was set up correctly at the winery including the flowers, seating chart and table settings. The bouquets were delivered to the bride at the right time and the guests had what they needed. The wedding was a lovely memorable day for all of us and I would definitely recommend the planning           services of Monarch Wedding Planning. Everyone had a great time and it could not have been a more perfect day!

She went above and beyond what we had anticipated. Amazing coordinator!

Lisa – Campbell, CA

 

Alison was great! I hired her for day of coordination but she went above and beyond, meeting with me multiple times and providing multiple timelines and to do lists since I hired here. I was hesitant to hire a coordinator because I thought I could do it all, I’m more than happy to have hired Alison! My day would have not been as smooth without her guidance and support along the way. The first thing my husband said when we were discussing our big day the morning after was, “I’m glad we hired Allison!” Thank you Alison, you were awesome to work with!

ALISON is the best. She was one of the reasons my daughter’s wedding went so smoothly.. making sure people were where they needed to be when they needed to be there and keeping all the vendors in pace with each other. I didn’t have to think about or worry about anything, because Alison took care of it AND me. Mother’s of the brides heads are up in the clouds, too. So many people commented about it being the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and ofcourse, I couldn’t agree more. THANK YOU SO MUCH ALISON FOR ALL YOU DID FOR US!!!!!!

Jean Bacon McDonald – Templeton, CA

 

Originally, I thought I would not need a “day of” wedding coordinator, but I am so glad I hired Alison. I was pretty overwhelmed with the wedding planning that a timeline for the wedding day was the last thing on my mind. I had no idea how I was going to plan everything for the day and get all the vendors on the same page, so everything would run smoothly.With Alison, all I had to do is tell her my vision for the day and she made it happen. I told her what I wanted to happen that day and when I wanted it to happen and she handled everything else. She did so well that even my DJ complemented her for her attention to detail.In the end, Alison is the reason my day went so well. Even after my wedding flowers burned in my venue fridge, Alison was there to help my aunts fix my flower arrangements in just a 3 hour time frame! I would recommend her over and over again! Thank you Alison for all of your hard work on my special day!

I just got married after a year of planning my wedding turned out amazing!! Of course this could not have happened if it was not for the vendors I worked with to make our day magical. Alison was very supportive and had many great ideas for our wedding. I recommend hiring Alison for the whole duration of the wedding, not just the day of as trust me there are so many details that she helped me figure out throughout the process. Both my husband and I run our own business, so it would have been impossible to remember everything. I needed someone that stayed on top of things and reminded us of things when they were due. I also needed someone to stay on top of my husband as he was not always on top of things, and Alison was perfect for that as well ;-). Reach out to me or this review if you have questions and thank you Alison for helping Tom and I make our day magical!!!
