  • We worked with Laura for our wedding date of 8/23/2019 and we’re so glad we did! We hired her right after we got engaged in 2017 and she has worked with us through the past year and a half helping us plan our wedding. She took the time to make sure we ate during our wedding day (which is huge!) Laura is very calm and professional and would definitely recommend her.

  • We absolutely adored Laura. She gets everything done so you can truly enjoy the day. She did both my sister's wedding and mine and they both went down so smoothly. She is calm, ORGANIZED (beyond belief) and awesome to work with. I would hire her again in a minute- she is simply the best!

  • We hired Laura for our wedding day this past December and it was truly the best decision we made throughout the entire planning process. Not only was she beyond supportive and helpful in the planning process, she was our saving grace throughout our actual day. The vendors, bridal party, family, and friends could not stop complimenting her. She is so organized, professional, and positive it allowed me to enjoy every moment. I had friends and vendors approaching her before the night ended asking for her business card because her work speaks for itself. I adore Laura and her team. I can't thank her enough for everything she did for us.

  • We hired Brides on a Budget for day-of wedding coordination. However, as part of that package, Laura met with us several times leading up to the wedding to ensure we had all of the details figured out. She had a calm demeanor, was very detail oriented, and knew the right questions to ask. The day-of the wedding she ensured my family and I could enjoy the day by making sure everything ran smoothly, the vendor schedule was organized, and that the reception venue and church were set-up as outlined. Overall, she helped make our wedding vision become a reality! Laura and her staff were simply amazing!! My sister is getting married next summer and Brides on a Budget is my top vendor recommendation to her! Thank you again, Laura & team!

  • Laura from Brides on a Budget was the best decision my husband and I made for our wedding. She helped us with the Day of Coordinating and tear down service. From the first time we met Laura, we could tell she was very organized and professional. As our meetings progressed, we realized just how important she was to making our big day carefree. Laura told us that during our "wedding week", we would just have to worry about being the bride and groom; she couldn't have been more accurate! From the moment the decor left our house, we didn't have to think about one vendor, details or any decorating. We got to enjoy our weekend with our friends and family and it made our day simply perfect. Laura decorated exactly as I had envisioned and provided us with all decor/gifts placed where we requested at the end of the night. We couldn't have imagined our day without her and was easily the best money we spent for our wedding!

  • Laura is the absolute best! She helped my finance and I plan for the wedding of our dreams. Throughout the entire planning process, she provided valuable tips regarding vendors, and went above and beyond in terms of her work for us. I could not recommend her more highly. On our wedding day, I was surprisingly relaxed and carefree--because I knew Laura would handle any issues that arose.

  • We hired Laura as a day of coordinator for our wedding last month - and it was probably the best decision (after the selection of the groom) that I made about the wedding! I'm a very organized bride but I was worried about making things go smoothly the day of and I didn't want to worry about the details during the wedding day. I hired Laura thinking she would just "be there to set up a few things and answer questions" the day of the wedding but what she ultimately did was far above and beyond that! I felt like we should have paid her so much more for what she helped us with! She was extremely responsive - especially through email (my preferred method of communicating with other vendors as well) -- and had wonderful advice as I was navigating the wedding planning process. Her recommendations for everything were perfect, including a hotel for our guests (that had a shuttle); a wonderful florist and string quartet for our ceremony. Laura is so patient and kind that it was easy to work w... Read more

  • I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about Laura and her ability to create a wonderful wedding! Prompt, assertive, professional, kind, and organized are just some of the words that come to mind when describing her. We worked with Laura for a while (we had almost a year and half engagement) and she maintained the same focus and work ethic the entire timeline we were together. From the beginning, she understood the look and style of wedding we were imagining and she quickly caught on and ran with it, coming up with amazing additional ideas and the most wonderful vendor suggestions. I truly think we had the A-Team when it came to vendors for our wedding - including Laura. She really became a friend and confidante during the whole process and what more could you really ask for in a wedding planner!? She was incredible from start to finish and helped to deploy the most perfect wedding for us! Go Laura! :)

  • There are no words to explain how overwhelmingly awesome Laura is and how wonderful she made our wedding day. Neither of us felt particularly excited about the planning--we knew we didn't want to have a traditional wedding, but we weren't sure exactly what that meant. Laura was incredibly patient with us, walking us through each step, and guiding us through the decisions we needed to make. And while we knew it was going to be a fun and happy day, we couldn't know how awesome Laura and her staff would make it. Truly, it was one of the happiest days of our lives. Our wedding was pretty DIY. But with Laura and her staff, we knew everything would be taken care of with no help from us or our families. We were married in a city park with the reception in the corresponding barn/shelter. Laura and staff decorated the facility, handled vendor drop offs, placed all of our chairs for the outside ceremony, handled beverage and food refill from our drop off catering and even handled the wedding ...

  • Laura and her team were the absolute best. I went back and forth during my wedding planning process about hiring a wedding coordinator, and I am so happy I did. I highly recommend every bride hire a day of coordinator, definitely worth every penny! I hired Laura for same day wedding coordination and end of night clean up. Laura was so easy to work with. She was quick to respond to e-mails, super organized and so easy to talk with. She went above and beyond to make my wedding day run smoothly and brought my wedding day vision to life. We met several times in person to work on a time line for the entire weekend and details of decorating. My wedding party and vendors were super impressed by the time line. It helped keep people from asking me where they needed to be when, they just had to reference back to the itinerary. She also contacted all my vendors the week of the wedding so I didn't have to worry about verifying last minute details with them. The moment I handed off ... Read more

  • Laura and her team were awesome. We hired her for "day of" coordination, but she spent much more time meeting with us and helping us plan the details of the wedding during the month up to the wedding day. She was incredibly well organized and ridiculously responsive. We got email responses within hours not within the day. The wedding was exactly how we wanted it to be thanks to Laura and her team. She even had all the little things that slip your mind on the wedding day: wine opener, cooler, and extra card holders. Highly recommended! Do yourself a favor and get Laura to help, you need her whether you know it or not.

  • Laura was the reason I was able to be completely calm and present on my wedding day. From our first meeting to the wedding rehearsal, she was always prepared to tackle and anticipate any wedding issues. On top of that, she is a genuinely nice, warm person and exactly who you want around on your wedding day. Thank you again, Laura!

  • Laura was amazing to work with! She was so incredibly helpful getting all the details of my wedding to fit together. On the day of my wedding, Laura was always around when needed and she took care of everything so that my husband and I could enjoy our day. I would highly recommend Brides on a Budget to others!

  • Laura was so great to work with. I am so glad that we had her as our wedding planner. We did not have to worry about anything on our wedding day. My bridesmaids dresses were falling down and Laura helped to fix them and they stayed up on night on my bridesmaids! Wouldn't know what to do if she wasn't there. She was very organized and detailed with the planning which made us feel at ease and our wedding day went smoothly as planned. Laura is very flexible and we really enjoyed working with her.

  • I don't think we can say enough good things about Laura. I chose her business on a whim while doing an internet search (who wouldn't go for Brides on a Budget??), and never regretted a single decision. We are quite possibly the world's most unorganized couple, so it was wonderful to have someone like Laura on board with us. We hired her for the whole package (planning the whole day, in essence), and worked with her for about 18 months leading up and including the day of. She kept us on task with her many levels of check lists (bless her heart!), and also kept us on schedule. Her choices of vendors were par to none. As for the day itself, I don't know what we would have done without her. When we showed up an hour late for our own rehearsal, she didn't bat an eye (again, sorry about that). And when there was the inevitable family drama during the reception, she made sure we weren't aware of it. Everything went off smoothly, and we didn't get rained on! We couldn't have asked for...
