  • I signed up for Caitlin's "Feel the Wedding Day Love" course and was so happy with how helpful it was. It was like having the teacher's edition of any wedding planning book you'd find, with all the extra answers and resources. I've been planning a destination wedding in a low-key location, and really needed some structure and insider's information to help me pull everything together. If you're lucky enough to be in the DIY Wedding Mentor service area, I wouldn't hesitate a second to hire the team. And If you're located far away like me, ask for the next best thing and sign up for the course! :)

  • I signed up for Caitlin's Feel The Wedding Day Love course and absolutely recommend it! The course comes with a very thorough and detailed packet of materials, tips, tricks, checklists, etc, that you have online access to. To be honest, I didn't use the written materials as much as I could have, and the course was STILL worth every penny because Caitlin provided so much information and support on the monthly conference calls. She patiently answered any and every question I had, and she went above and beyond to make sure that my wedding weekend timeline was in good shape. I learned so much, and yet I know I did not even scratch the surface of her expertise on wedding organization and details! She is so competent and professional, I can only imagine that she would be an awesome day-of coordinator as well. You will be in good hands!!

  • Working with Brittany was great! She was incredibly professional and organized, but also friendly and easy to talk with. She kept me on track throughout the planning process and she had lots of great resources and advice. She did a great job dealing with the owner of our venue who was a little difficult and she handled some last minute issues with vendors so that I could relax and enjoy the week before the wedding. I was able to relax and enjoy the day of our wedding because I knew Brittany had everything under control! She went above and beyond, she even picked up some flowers for me on her way to the venue to save us the stress! I would recommend Brittany and Caitlin to anyone planning a wedding!

  • Making the decision to work with Brittany, and Caitlin was hands down the best decision I made during the wedding planning processes. If you are questioning hiring a day of wedding coordinator think no further and just do it! I like to think of myself as a well organized, type-A personality when it comes to planning but having Brittany by my side throughout the process was unbelievably helpful. There where SO many things I didn't even think of....the tiniest of details, and she had it covered! She and Caitlin where on site the morning of our wedding to set up and direct our vendors while I had the opportunity to sit back and relax. Brittany also stayed the entire day, through clean up at the end of the night. She even delivered our flowers to a local florist the next morning for donation. Their services are worth every penny, and more. I couldn't have been happier to find them!

  • Using DIY Wedding Mentor was one of the best decisions I made in my wedding planning!! Caitlin was incredibly responsive and so helpful, and always remembered the specific details of my wedding whenever I had a question for her. By using the materials that were provided (along with advice and guidance on how to best utilize them), I was truly able to hand off all my wedding coordination to someone else on the day of, and fully enjoy my wedding without any stress!! Every one of my vendors commented on how organized I was, and how helpful the timelines and guidance I gave them was. Thanks to DIY Wedding Mentor my wedding was a huge success, with almost no issues on the day of! Completely worth the money if you're organized and willing to put in the work before the day of!

  • Do it. Hire Caitlin to be your coordinator. I promise you won't regret it AT ALL! My husband and I, at our reception, spoke in awe of her work ethic, organization, and pretty much everything about her! We had decided that she was worth every penny...plus some. We felt like she was a STEAL, and worth some much more than what she asks for. Our wedding was at the Mansfield Barn in Jericho, Vermont---a new venue and one that Caitlin Frauton hadn't worked at before, but you would have never known! She was extremely poised and took care of everything! Hiring Caitlin to be our wedding coordinator was the absolute, hands-down, best decision we made during our wedding planning. I don't have the words to describe how amazing the entire day was, and I know it wouldn't have been the same without Caitlin there! Caitlin, thank you so so so much for all of your organizing, planning, coordinating, decorating...and everything! If we could do it all over again we wouldn't have changed a single thing! T...

  • Caitlin was absolutely wonderful to work with from the start!! She goes above and beyond to keep you organized and give you advice. There were countless times that she reminded me of details that I'd never thought of. She even spent time to help me find a rehearsal dinner outfit! On the day of the wedding, even my husband agreed that it was priceless to have her. She coordinated everything from centerpieces to our dog walker. She even personally made sure that my wine glass was always filled at the reception! I could not recommend her enough.

    Aww thank you Lindsey & Trey! You both and your family and friends were so kind, and your wedding was a wonderful experience to be a part of! I know you wanted to share VT with your family and friends from the South, but know that VT was just as lucky to have such a nice group of people here for your wedding weekend. Wishing you both the very best Dr. & Dr. Williams!

  • Caitlin and her diy wedding mentor team are amazing!! Our dream wedding came to life because of Caitlin. She was so organized and helpful during the planning process. There were so many important details I would have completely forgot or overlooked if it wasn't for Caitlin and her knowledge of planning a diy wedding. She took the time to get to know us and exactly how we wanted things to go and she made it happen. The day of our wedding was flawless as far as we were concerned- Caitlin handled any issue that may have come up without anyone ever knowing! The entire day I was amazed with how hard caitlin and her team worked to make everything perfect. Caitlin is more than a wedding planner, she truly cares about the couple and making their wedding day special!

    Thank you Karah and Sam for the kind words! We had so much FUN at your wedding!! There was so much laughter and so many smiles from start to finish that the happiness was absolutely infectious. Thank you for having us be a part of your wedding day and being so amazing to work with - it meant the world to us!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Caitlin and her DIY Wedding Mentor Services. My now husband and I just had our wedding a few weeks ago, and I honestly can't imagine our day without Caitlin. Starting about two months before our wedding, we knew we needed a more hands on Day Of Coordinator for our non-traditional venue. After searching for a while, we found DIY Wedding Mentor and were immediately blown away by Caitlin's professionalism, calm, understanding attitude, and her overall pleasant demeanor. From our initial consult, Caitlin made me feel at ease and empowered in the wedding planning process. She was so organized, empathetic, and forward-thinking, and she made us feel so comfortable going into our wedding. I used Caitlin for a variety of consults before the actual day of our wedding, she helped coordinate our entire rehearsal and ceremony, she worked with our venue before, during and after our celebration, and she was nothing but encouraging, resourceful and amazing through...

    Sarah & Sam, thank you so much for sharing your experience of working with us! We are so happy that you found us because we couldn't imagine this wedding season without working with you! The few logistical challenges with the space made it all that more rewarding when everything came together so beautifully. And your kindness, calm, and practical approach was just amazing :) So happy for the two of you!!

  • Caitlin was truly incredible to work with. She went so far above and beyond what our expectations of what a planner would be; her unfailing organization, loving direction and positive encouragement made the entire process enjoyable, even on the difficult days! She had a unique ability to both hear and understand what our values were, and then incorporate them into her skillful planning, making our wedding day more beautiful, original and relaxing than we could have ever done ourselves. She's a one-of-a-kind planner, and an absolute professional. I can not recommend her highly enough!!!

    Thank you so much Brooke & Matt! I loved our planning sessions so much, and it was such an amazing experience being part of your wedding day. It was wonderful how you both knew what you wanted in your local VT wedding, and were also flexible and open minded throughout the process. Your wedding was amazing and unique because it totally reflected the both of you :) Wishing you both lots and lots of happiness, and hoping our paths cross again soon!

  • DIY Wedding Mentor has been invaluable to me...Im getting married at a venue so its not entirely DIY but so many of her tools have been so helpful for me. Her checklist reiterates that I havent forgotten about anything; her timeline covers everything from save the dates to ceremony; my fiance and I have followed her ceremony template to a T and its been so useful for us because we are not having a religious ceremony and werent sure where to start. The prices are so reasonable for the great value you get from her work. It's clear that DIY wedding mentor understands that even though its another wedding for them, for you, its the most important day of your life. Thank you!!

    Thank you, Emily! We're SO happy to hear that our Wedding Ceremony Template and checklists were helpful! It's so true that every wedding in amazing in its own way, and we're honored to help any couple who is looking for some support and guidance along the way. Thank you so much for the feedback - it means so much!

  • Working with Caitlin was the best gift I could have given myself. She helped us so much in the planning process and then executed the day of so thoughtfully and completely. I was so relaxed on my wedding day (and I am prone to stress related freak outs) because I knew that Caitlin had it all under control and that everything was going to work out. I wanted to have my wedding at a nontraditional venue, and that's what she specializes in. I also knew that I didn't want my friends and family working on my wedding day. I wanted everyone to be able to just be a guest. And because of Caitlin's hard work, that was totally possible. Do yourself a favor, hire Caitlin so that you can relax on your wedding day.

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Melissa! You and Ian were so wonderful to work with, and your camp wedding was amazing!! I will remember it, the meaningful details, and the feeling you created among your family and friends for a long time to come :)

  • We worked closely with Brittany Hollman in preparation for our wedding and on the day of our wedding. Brittany worked with us months leading up to the wedding to help us stay organized and keep us on target. She has a great demeanor, a positive approach, and is a genuine person always wanting to do her best. Brittany attended our rehearsal dinner and was on site at our venue bright and early the morning of the wedding. She made it possible for us to enjoy our day, free of worries. She put out fires with ease, because not matter how hard you try to think of everything, something is bound to pop up. She was able to use her knowledge of wedding planning to make things happen! We highly recommend Brittany with absolutely no reservations because she made our wedding day what it was!

  • Caitlin was a pleasure to work with. She is is very organized and thought of many details we would have missed had we planned things on our own. The day of went off without a hitch -- we got to enjoy the day without having to worry about things getting done. Her wedding philosophy was a great match for ours, and a breath of fresh air in the planning space!

  • Caitlin, Brittany and Howie were very accommodating. They genuinely care about their customers and are willing to work with couples to make the day special. I would definitely suggest them if you are organized and have tasks well laid out. They executed everything wonderfully. Although I did not use their coordination/wedding planning services they were willing to give ample advice and I am sure those services would have been a great investment if I had known about them sooner. They did an amazing job and I would recommend them for your wedding needs!
