  • As soon as I got engaged, I knew I wanted to hire Plan It Perfect to coordinate my wedding. I’ve known Rachel for several years as she’s been a mentor to me as I transitioned careers into the event industry. Having worked alongside Rachel on multiple weddings, I knew how hard she works to make her clients’ special day a success. She’s been in the industry for years and has extensive knowledge on how to successfully plan and coordinate events. Even when our officiant wasn't able to attend the rehearsal last minute, Rachel stepped in with no problem. With Rachel and her assistant, Anastasia in charge we knew we were in good hands! Our day was more than we could dream of and Plan It Perfect played an integral part in that.

  • From the minute we met her until after our son's wedding, Rachel was always available to us, in person, by email and phone. She keeps meticulous notes of everything and sent them on to us. She is very detail oriented. She dealt with all of our vendors extremely effectively. Any recommendations we needed, she found for us, and all of the vendors she found for us were also great. She answered every possible question. When the wedding got really close and not everything we had ordered had arrived, she filled in that gap too. She and her company are just fabulous! I just can't give her enough praise.

    Thank you so much for the glowing review, Lynne! It was our absolute pleasure to work with you, Zach & Lucas. Our team had such a wonderful time helping the wedding come together and we were so pleased to be able to lighten the load for you throughout the process.

  • Rachel at Plan it Perfect was The Wedding Day Coordination Package planner for the weddings of my two daughters. These weddings were only six weeks apart! Rachel was skilled and professional with deep knowledge of our Baltimore venues and venders. She also had very good judgement on how to arrange and time the ceremonies and receptions. Not only that, but bringing a Rachel into the process, who got excited with us about all the details, was lots of fun. I felt that I was able to relax and enjoy these special days with my family and friends in a way that I would not have been able to if I did not have Rachel in our corner! Thanks so much, Rachel!!

  • We had a unique experience in that both my sister and I got married within 6 weeks of each other. We had not originally planned to have a coordinator but with 2 big( over 200) weddings we realized we needed that assistance. I am glad we made that decision as we would have been lost without Rachel and Plan It Perfect. She did an excellent job with both weddings and made the stress melt away! She was always responsive on email, even with silly questions, and made the whole process simple and fun!

  • As father of the bride, my only concern was my daughter's happiness on the big day. Thank goodness Rachel and Katie were there. They were pleasant, calm and a relaxing influence on the entire wedding party. At the same time, in complete command of the situation. Before the wedding, Rachel took control of all the details to make sure there would be no problems with any part of ceremony, reception, transportation, flowers, bakery, etc... Very happy. We would definitely recommend.

  • We could never have gotten through the last few weeks without Rachel. She was so helpful. She came up with ideas that we would have never thought of, a hanger for the dress, lunch for getting ready etc. I don't want to get to far into details without telling you the most important part. We forgot our rings and didn't realize it till about one hour prior to photos. Rachel literally got in her car and drove to my house and found where I hid the rings, in my closet in a bag! She even facetimed with me to assure me she was on her way to get them. We also had a groomsmen not show up until we were about to walk down the aisle and she came up with a back up plan and was able to calm my husband down. I can not tell you how amazing she was. She is available via text, email and facetime, I literally could not have asked for more. Hire Rachel, she is worth everything!

  • Put simply, Rachel is superwoman. My parents have repeatedly said that they believe she was by far their best investment for our wedding. This Type-A, mildly neurotic bride managed to keep cool as a cucumber our entire wedding weekend, and such a big part of why I was able to sit back and truly, truly enjoy the beginning of my marriage was because Rachel handled the details and the logistics of the day—and leading up to the day—impeccably. A five-star review just doesn’t do her justice. The venue where my husband and I got married contractually required us to hire a “month-of” wedding coordinator—and looking back, we are so very grateful for that requirement. But at the time, the idea of hiring a planner made me pretty apprehensive—we were very excited to plan a wedding that was organically and authentically “us,” and we were concerned that a planner would turn our day into just another run-of-the-mill wedding. Unfortunately, after calls with a few different coordi... Read more

  • The Plan it Perfect team was the glue that held our wedding together and enabled our vision to become a reality - with limited stress. During planning time, we thought we could "do it". A friend of mine wed his daughter 3 months prior to ours and stated "the best value of any wedding dollar he spent was with Rachel/Plan it Perfect". The name "Plan it Perfect" truly matches their approach and service ... and the results were awesome. As an example of a little detail that could have ended up in a stressful situation: The Bridal/Head Table was not set up according to the Final Plan. Rachel and team combed through all of the details, recognized it and sprung into action. Fixed it and no one - including the Bride & MoB - knew the issue was ever there. Another "value" example: Moments prior to entering the church, my daughter and I are having a spontaneous emotional moment. And there was Rachel - with her "tool kit" - filled with mouth wash spray, tissues and words of wisdom - "w... Read more

  • We hired Rachel as our "day of" coordinator but ended up working with her on so much more. She was one of the best investments we made for our wedding. From my first meeting with her, Rachel assured me that my concerns about the day were normal and she was more than willing to work with me to customize specific services. She was prompt in her correspondence and also helpful in making recommendations for other vendors, many of which provided discounts because of the referral. When we had problems with our original venue, Rachel was not only a great sounding board, but stepped in to help me try and work out the issues we were having. Ultimately, we changed venues four months before the wedding, and Rachel not only helped us secure a new venue, but worked with us on linens and a menu. Her professionalism and patience were amazing and carried through to the wedding. She took care of every detail, including a 6:30am breakfast delivery to the bridal party. I didn't even find out until la... Read more

  • Rachel is WONDERFUL!! It's hard to match my organizational skills and love of to-do lists. Yet, Rachel surpasses me down to every Excel spreadsheet! She knew her audience in me and coordinated with me in a way that eased my stress levels a TON! No detail was overlooked and Rachel pulled off an incredible, elegant wedding with a nod to sports that many thought was impossible. She had amazing ideas and kept the day classy, but very fun! She is wonderful to work with and incredibly accommodating with meeting times. Most people say the week before their wedding is insanely busy. Because of Rachel, I could spend that week enjoying and visiting with family with not a worry in the world. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for help to navigate through the insanity that is planning a wedding (or any big event!)!!

  • Rachel sold me when she said, " You will feel like a guest at your own wedding." Ultimately, after all was said and done, I did. Rachel has a very warm, fun personality and is very positive and friendly. The pros of working with her include: she is a great listener, she texts back right away, she has a lot of experience and she is passionate about the arts/crafts/flowers/design aspect of weddings. Now for the cons. I had to reach out to her proactively many times to schedule random meetings throughout the process with her, as opposed to having a set meeting schedule in place. I felt lost on our timeline often, as we didn't have any kind of project management tool, just emails and a checklist. I had to remember several details that would have fallen through the cracks. She didn't put what I had specifically requested into half of the guest welcome bags so I had to run around on Friday morning finding crab chips and Berger cookies which she said "Were hard to source." (Not true) Her vend... Read more

    Thank you so much for the feedback, Erin. I'm so happy to hear about the pros you experienced while working with Plan It Perfect. If I may address the cons, to clarify a few things for future readers: Your contract included a limited amount of help throughout the planning process, in order to comply with a budget set forth in the beginning. We agreed upon the Day-of Coordination services, plus Event Design. There was an earlier proposal that included much of the assistance you describe as not being given, such as negotiating with vendors and regularly scheduled consultations. Your revised contract included procurement of estimates for design-related items, but did not include procuring pricing for food, beverages, transportation, entertainment, etc. Any negotiation would have been between you and the vendor, which was explained several times throughout the process. Had I been made aware of your concerns about perceived scope gaps during the planning processes, I'm sure things could have been cleared up and any confusion you experienced could have been expunged. We look forward to utilizing the cons you describe as lessons learned than can benefit future clients for years to come. Thanks again for choosing Plan It Perfect.

  • Rachel with Plan-it Perfect was incredible during our planning process and on the day of our wedding. She showed us an awesome wholesale floral shop (Pennock Floral in Laurel, MD) and helped us pick out beautiful flowers for a steal. She also lent us vases and votives for our centerpieces which was a big help. Our venue, particularly the coordinator assigned to us, was less than helpful, flexible, and accommodating, but thank goodness we had Rachel, who more than made up for that. Rachel attended meetings with the venue coordinator and myself and assisted me in making decisions, as I was a very indecisive bride. She had her colleague Cait with her to help on the wedding day which was super helpful! The venue only allowed for minimal setup time. I was nervous about this as the timing seemed unreasonable (an hour and a half to set up all decor- ceremony, 16 table centerpieces, remembrance pictures, cards/gifts area, photo booth, etc. - literally everything). Rachel and Cait achieved thi... Read more

  • My daughter and I planned her wedding bi-coastally -- thank heavens for skype and gchat and the internet. Still, as the day approached, my daughter really wanted me to be there for her instead of immersed in details, and asked that I find a planner. After checking with mothers of brides Rachel had worked with, and brides, we chose Plan It Perfect to support us at the vendor walk through, the wedding rehearsal, and on the day of -- well worth it!

  • Overall the my wedding went well. I was just upset with lack of communication and so many last minute changes like not having Rachel at my wedding and instead her old assistant. I felt as though my wedding was pushed aside a little because she had over booked herself for the month of are wedding.However, Kate was awesome and got things professionally done.

    We are so glad you felt your day went well. We appreciate you expressing your concerns about the staffing of your event, and we wish we had been made aware of these concerns prior to your wedding when you approved having Cate oversee your wedding. Cate is the Founder of Plan It Perfect. She started the company 14 years prior to your wedding, and has been planning & coordinating events ever since. When you selected PIP as your Partial-Service wedding planner, Cate was my business partner. The 1st several consultations you & your mother had with PIP were with Cate and me. About half-way through your wedding planning process, Cate made the decision to step back to part-time coordinating in order to afford her more time with her kids. At that time, I took over the planning operations for all events & worked along with a staff of 3 coordinators (including Cate) to manage the on-site operations of all events. In addition, we have several assistants who help on an as-needed basis with every event. This enables us to run multiple events with at least 2 people on site to ensure that everything goes smoothly. About 2 months prior to your wedding, I asked if you felt comfortable with a proposed arrangement of Cate managing your wedding day, along with her assistant. It was the same arrangement of having at least 1 of us present on your wedding day that you would have expected from the time you contracted with PIP. You agreed that having Cate coordinate the day would be fine, as long as you had an opportunity to meet with her in person prior to the wedding. We always have the lead coordinator attend the final planning meeting, so this was an easy request to accommodate. Several weeks before your wedding, you met with Cate for an in-depth meeting that covered all the details of your day. I was still personally involved with making final confirmations with all vendors, and Cate, as you said, did an awesome job coordinating the day.
