Kyla & Steve
Tied the knot October 2016 | Chicago, IL
“I really appreciated not having to worry about the small details. We forgot to separate our tip money for the various vendors, and I was able to hand that to our coordinator and forget about it. We also had a fairly rowdy bridal party that went through all of our cups drinking champagne on the way to the church. Kyla and I didn't drink at all before mass, but I definitely wanted a drink afterwards! Our supplies were replenished by the time we left the church. It's those small things Kyla and I didn't consider during the planning that really would have made the day stressful – our coordinator took care of them and made the day a breeze!” – Steve
“I originally thought we would be just fine without a day-of coordinator, but we are so thankful that we had Escandar Group for our big day. From running across town to get my forgotten bridal bouquet, to buying more supplies so we could enjoy our trolley ride, to making sure all of our vendors received their tips throughout the night, our day-of coordinator made sure we didn't have to worry about anything on our wedding day. Despite attempting to plan for everything, it wasn't and isn't possible, so having a day-of coordinator was central to the day going smoothly!” – Kyla

Said “I Do” October 2016 | Seattle, WA
“Hiring a day-of coordinator through Escandar Group was the best decision we made. I’ve been an event planner, so I thought it would be simple enough to plan and execute my own wedding. I was so wrong. Our coordinator stepped in and took care of all our last minute details, emergencies, and made sure everything ran smoothly. She went above and beyond to calm our chaos. Any and all stress we were feeling was lifted the moment she arrived. She was determined, and efficient, without being over the top. Knowing our coordinator was on top of everything gave us a chance to ACTUALLY ENJOY OUR BIG DAY.” – Eleni

Mary & Eric
Getting hitched 2017 | Chicago, IL
"Planning a wedding can be a long and stressful process, especially for a non-detail oriented person like myself. Having a coordinator can truly be the difference between having a perfectly executed wedding or a disaster. Our coordinator has been extremely helpful early on in our wedding planning process as they serve as a sounding board for ideas, a resource for selecting the right vendors, and a project manager to ensure all the details that one wouldn't usually consider are thought of and addressed. The role of the coordinator is more of a trusted adviser by guidance and support. I feel much more confident through-out this year-long planning process." – Eric
"I wasn't sure originally if hiring a day of coordinator so far in advance was necessary. However, it’s given me such peace of mind as we navigate this process. Our coordinator has been so open to letting us bounce ideas off of her and sending us resources, which is above and beyond her job as day-of coordinator. Seeing all of her great work on social media coordinating other weddings this year, it makes me really excited for our wedding knowing she can handle anything that comes her way." – Mary
