  • Love on a Shoe String was THE best money we spent on our wedding. I thought I could handle it all, but as the day approached my husband and I wondered just how I would manage getting ready, coordinating vendors, and have fun and remain calm on our wedding day. My husband insisted that we hire a day-of wedding planner. After a lot of research, we decided to hire Love on a Shoe String. My only regret is not having Peggy involved in ALL of the planning! Peggy and her staff flawlessly executed everything we wanted and Peggy had GREAT recommendations for us. She handled EVERYTHING the day of our wedding so we didn't have to think about anything but getting married and having fun. It was money well-spent. Hire Peggy, you won't regret it!

  • Hiring Peggy was a wonderful decision! We hired Peggy pre-pandemic, and she was helpful and always great to consult with as we were weighing out options and ultimately rescheduled. Peggy joined the planning calls with our venue, and asked all the right questions we never would have known to ask. Leading up to the wedding she worked with all of our vendors, and made sure they knew what to do when. The day of our wedding is where Peggy and her team absolutely go over the top. They set up all of our decorations perfectly all while being present with us, and making sure we had what we needed all day. Her entire team was professional, efficient, and so sweet! Peggy and Chloe even helped fix my dress quickly between dinner and dessert! My mom is still blown away that when we went to get our stuff the next morning, everything was perfectly cleaned and packed up for us. Thank you Peggy- you truly made our day easy and stress free!

  • Having a quick change of plans for our wedding venue and planning from out of state, having Peggy by our side on the day of the wedding was a blessing! She truly has the talent and skills of organization, communication, and detail. As a wedding couple, we didn't have the best idea of what decor to include for our cocktail our and reception but Peggy took a heavy weight off our shoulders as we trusted her with this task! We highly recommend Peggy and her team if you're looking to have a lot less anxiety on the day of your wedding! :)

  • **MARRIED ON SEPTEMBER 5th 2020** I have so many amazing things to say about Peggy. I originally chose Peggy pre-COVID when were having an event with 160+ people to be our day-of coordinator, however, our plans had changed and we switched to a different venue with about 50 people. Peggy was so helpful in making sure we remembered all the important details of our day before it happened and was so incredibly helpful on the day of. If it weren't for Peggy, my wedding day would have been ruined by one staff member at the venue we chose who was acting as the "venue coordinator". Peggy was SO incredibly professional having to work with the coordinator at the venue that was again SO rude to her, at times yelled at her, and made her feel unwelcomed. Peggy continued to have my best interest in mind to ensure my day was perfect despite the issues she faced. I cannot recommend her enough, seriously! During the meal, she continued to check in on my husband and me and even walked around to every t... Read more

  • Peggy coordinated my dear friends wedding, where I was a member of the wedding party. Her calm presence was a great comfort to us all throughout the day as we navigated issues with the venue. She kept a cool head and advocated for the Bride when needed. I would absolutely recommend having Peggy in your corner!

  • Ladies, RUN don't walk to book Love on a Shoe String's planning services. These past two years were full of so many worries for my now husband and I including a pandemic, two postponements and a whole lot of wedding related tears - each time we got on the phone with Peggy we were reassured that everything would be ok! From helping me set a personal schedule of deadlines (twice), to reaching out to vendors for quotes and then finally to being so present at both the rehearsal and wedding day for anything that we needed, Peggy and her team were an absolute dream to work with! We are so lucky to have had her by our side and in our corner throughout this process and I cannot thank her enough for getting us through all of the out of our control curve balls 2020 threw at us! THANK YOU PEGGY!!!

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Peggy at Love on a Shoestring! She truly made my wedding and the planning process a joy. Peggy met with me several times before my wedding day and was always available for consultation via email, phone or text. Peggy helped me to coordinate my vendors for my DIY wedding and was on site for my rehearsal and wedding day. Peggy even came to the site the night before when there was an issue with my tent- her presence and advice were calming and reassuring when I was very stressed! She made me and my family feel at ease. Peggy and her assistant handled everything beautifully on my wedding day. If anything went wrong, I didn't notice/wasn't involved because Peggy handled it! I highly recommend working with Love on a Shoestring for your wedding. Thank you Peggy!

  • Peggy was a savior! I never planned on having a wedding with anyone but immediate family. One thing left to another and we were planning a wedding across the country with a growing guest list at a location that was not a traditional venue. I was overwhelmed and short on time. Peggy quickly was able to help guide me and assist in figuring what vendors and what I even needed as well as coordinating the event itself. On the day of, they monitored everything and help correct any last minute oversights we had, like not having enough of the mixers for the alcohol we provided ourselves. The wedding was a success and I have her to thank for it!

  • I have to say hiring Peggy was the best thing I did! She was so responsive and helpful offering guidance and support through the whole process. At first I wasn’t sure my budget would allow hiring a planner but her service was so inclusive

  • Peggy did a wonderful job helping us to prepare for our wedding. Although we did most of the planning and arrangements with vendors before the wedding day, Peggy was key in making sure that we stayed on track and that everything came together perfectly at the actual event. She made sure that we did not have to worry about a thing, and were able to completely enjoy our ceremony & reception. She is a warm, friendly person and a pleasure to work with! We highly recommend Peggy & Love on a Shoe String.

  • We hired Peggy as our Day of Coordinator. We needed someone to keep everything running smoothly during set up, the ceremony, the reception, and cleaning up. She attended our rehearsal and helped everyone get on the same page for how the ceremony was going to run. She had some great new ideas regarding set up of the venue, and made sure everything looked how we wanted it to and took stress off of us day of by communicating with all of the other vendors. She cleaned up everything and packed it all up for us at the end of the night, so we didn't have to worry about anything. She is very personable and kind, very responsive, and sweet, putting us at ease.
