  • Peggy really brought my whole day together. She helped me stay organized and reviewed all my ideas with me- helping to guide me into making them into a reality. I was very set on planning most of my wedding with detail and was on a budget but I could not have done it with the coordination of Peggy. She was so great in sharing her experience of what was possible and helped me figure out all my details. She had great recommendations for me when I was stuck and was there all day the day of to pull it together. Her assistant was incredible and they both made sure it was the best possible day for me. She is SO kind, comfortable to work wth and an excellent communicator. I would work with Peggy on any event in the future if she had availability. Everyone raved about the reception and I think they were telling the truth since we had to basically escort people out! Not possible without her! Thank you a million Peggy!

  • Peggy was very open to all that took place as it wasn't a typical reception and had some great suggestions. We used her for the reception only as the wedding had taken place 10 months prior. She also had some great back up vendors list if we had difficulty finding some. She kept the bride's mother calm and focused on the days prior and the day of the event. I would consider her for a huge party that wasn't a wedding if she was willing to do so! (this is the bride's mother writing this review!)

  • I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Peggy. I knew from our first phone call that she was going to be great to work with, but Peggy completely exceeded my expectations. From months before our wedding all the way up to the big day, Peggy went above and beyond to make our wedding everything we imagined and so much more. She is is highly experienced and professional, but also so warm and personable. Peggy was always communicative, responsive, on time, organized, supportive, kind and patient as we worked through the details. We met with Peggy several times before the wedding and she always made a point to address our needs, preferences, questions and concerns - her preparedness and attention to detail made the entire process so easy for us. We had to change our venue midway through the planning process and also had to make several last minute changes right before our wedding day, and Peggy remained as calm and collected as ever. She also did a great job communicating ... Read more

  • Peggy is nothing short of amazing!! From the moment we had our first interaction I knew she was the one. Her positive and energetic demeanor made it so easy to work with throughout the entire planning process and up until the big day. She is extremely helpful, calm, sweet, organized and caring who treats you as if you were family. Hiring a wedding planner is one of the most important investments to make for your wedding and I'm so glad that I hired Peggy!! I NEVER had to worry about anything under her watch and she's extremely responsive. I just wish I had more friends/family who were getting married soon so I could refer them to her. Peggy thank you so much for being so awesome and making my dream wedding come to life I could not have done it without you!!

  • Peggy was amazingly generous with her time and energy and completely dedicated to making our wedding exactly what we imagined! We were on a tight budget, and she had creative and affordable ideas that really reflected who we are as a couple and made the day memorable. Several people commented on the many meaningful and beautiful touches that were a part of our special day!

  • Peggy was the best thing to ever happen to the world of wedding planning! I cannot imagine having to plan our wedding without her help. Peggy made every effort to make sure our wedding was exactly what we wanted it to be and we truly felt that she was 100% dedicated to making our wedding perfect. The amount of work, enthusiasm and care Peggy put into our event was priceless. We are constantly getting compliments on how amazing our wedding was. I would recommend Love on a Shoe String to anyone planning a wedding. Peggy will make your event all that you want it to be and much, much more!

  • Let's start by saying I never would have had a wedding without them. I called Peggy in July for a September wedding which required planning every little detail. (it was outdoors) I was incredibly busy at work leaving me hardly any time to research vendors and consider details. Somehow, they delivered an amazing ceremony and reception. Peggy and her team are organized, meticulous, hard-working, thorough and creative. She made vendor recommendations, kept me on schedule , and helped me stay organized. Peggy is also incredibly warm and friendly and I simply enjoyed getting t know her. There are not enough words to say just how incredible my experience was and how much I appreciated all they did. I highly recommend Love on a Shoe String!

  • If all vendors exhibited the level of professionalism and quality that Peggy, Love on a Shoe String offered we would all have worry free weddings! Peggy made the hard work and long hours of planning the wedding fun and stress free. I really felt I was the only bride she was working with. The personal care and attention put myself and especially my mother at ease. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and I couldn't have been more pleased! Definitely, the best money I ever spent!

  • I was very nervous about my wedding until I met With Peggy. We put me right at ease and had so many helpful suggestions. There were a lot of last minute things as I was very hands on. Peggy was there every set of the way. My wedding was everything I had hoped for and more!

  • Hiring Peggy as my day-of coordinator was one of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding. She was professional, organized, and responsive throughout the process and took the time to really understand our vision of the day. She was supremely helpful on the day of the wedding. She made sure everything ran smoothly and was able to handle the unexpected things that came up (as they inevitably do). I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.

  • Peggy is experienced and flexible, so you know you will get an event tailored to your specific needs and venue. She was instrumental in tying up all the loose ends with our various vendors. She is extremely easy to work with and detail oriented. She helped make my daughter's wedding day a hassle-free celebration! We were free to enjoy the day without any worries.

  • I am sad to say that I was very disappointed by the services Peggy provided for our wedding. We hired Peggy to be our wedding day coordinator and prior to the wedding she was great and assured us everything would go smoothly. Unfortunately this was not the case as there were a number of things I had trusted Peggy to handle on our wedding day, which were not accomplished. For example, she packed up our belongings and there were a few sentimental items that we did not get back, the timeline I prepared did not go as we discussed, tables were not situated as discussed, transportation was misguided, etc. Our wedding day was beautiful and of course I realize not everything will go exactly as planned; however, I expect more to go as planned than not when paying someone $1,625.00 to pay attention to such details. If I had to do it again, I would not hire Love on a Shoe String.

  • Peggy did a wonderful job setting up the decorations and personal touches for our Fall 2015 wedding. Everything looked great, and was just how we had pictured it. She provided some useful advice throughout the planning process, and was there to reassure me through some of the more stressful parts. We could not have pulled off many of the visual aspects of the wedding day without her services, since the venue was only available 2 hours before our event for any set up! I did not have to worry about assigning friends and family to do the set up for us - Peggy took care of everything! We are so glad that we employed our services for our amazing wedding.
