  • Let me start off by saying Nicole is amazing. She made everything so easy for us. She went above and beyond to help us have the perfect wedding. We decided to still get married on our original wedding day but to move the ceremony and reception to a later date due to Covid. Nicole not only helped move everything for the ceremony and reception, she also attended and helped with elopement ceremony. Overall she made our wedding so special for us.

  • I am a Humanist Celebrant in the Triangle area and met Tara of Premier Party Planners when she hired me to officiate her wedding. We hit it off and have since worked together on several weddings. As an officiant, I have had an opportunity to see many different wedding planners and DOCs in action. Without question, I would recommend Tara as my first choice wedding planner. She has that rare ability to be extremely well-organized while also maintaining a warm, friendly and fun atmosphere. The trick to good wedding planning is to get the details right and help the couple achieve their vision without making the wedding feel overly-scripted or controlled. Tara has a million-watt smile and a calm demeanor and manages to make everything work seamlessly while ensuring that everyone involved has a really good time. If she is available for your date, I would look no further, because you have found the perfect wedding planner.

  • Tara and Premier Party Planners was an absolute pleasure to work with. They helped create a wedding day timeline, and kept everyone and everything organized. They were there for whatever anyone needed on the wedding day, from a drink for the bride, to helping find someone who was needed for a group photo who had wandered away!

  • Nicole was amazing she helped me get through this covid mess and have the wedding I had always dreamed of. She was always on top of everything. She was very responsive all the time, she was wherever I needed whenever I needed it. Nicole and her assistant Melanie had full access to my decor I had bought for my wedding and made my reception area looked beyond my expectations. Also I was coming down a staircase and my dress caught the pieces so you wouldn’t slip down the stairs and at the last minute Melanie grabbed my dress and tucked down and held it up all the way down & nobody noticed her! Thanks girl! Nicole was like one of my best friends during this time. I cannot express enough how grateful I am for Nicole and Melanie. They made everything so easy and perfect for my day.

  • When I say that my wedding would have been completely impossible without Premier Party Planners, I am not exaggerating one bit. Due to COVID, we had to postpone, change plans, and change vendors multiple times to comply with restrictions/best practices. We unfortunately had some vendors fall through due to the pandemic (I want to note, none of them were the vendors Premier recommended to us) and Tara found us incredible replacements literal minutes from the time we knew we had a problem! Tara anticipated our needs before we had to ask throughout the planning process, as well as on the day of. She and Nicole pulled off an absolutely flawless event that my family, friends, and I will remember forever (for the right reasons!) Their eye for design, their ability to set up and stick to a seamless event timeline, and their communication and relationships with other vendors cannot be matched. Take it from a Covid Bride- hiring Premier is the single best thing you can do to have a stress-free ... Read more

  • My husband and I found Premier online and saw the rave reviews and decided to book a day-of planner - and oh my god they did NOT disappoint. We worked with Tara and I honestly wonder on a daily basis how we would have done anything without her. She is unbelievably organized, connected within the wedding industry, and always thinking 10 steps ahead. My husband and I are both have very demanding careers that didn’t allow time to slow down during the wedding planning process and so we knew we would need a planner to take charge and keep us on track. And then, on top of all of the normal wedding stressors....COVID hit :) Tara didn’t skip a beat. She essentially replanned a second wedding for us, keeping our vision and budget at top of mind the entire time. She handled each roadblock seamlessly, replied to emails within minutes, and gave us the “okay guys, it’s time to make some decisions on XYZ” nudges we desperately needed. There were so many times when Tara went above and beyon... Read more

  • I’m so excited to write a review for Nicole because she really is THAT amazing!!! I got married in October, 2020 in NC during Covid. Because of that a lot changed throughout the year and even weeks leading up to the wedding. Because of Covid we had to make changes with our initial venue and find a second outdoor venue for the reception, unfortunate last minute cancellations with vendors, and separately, drama that comes along with having divorced parents. I also currently live in NYC, so I had to rely on Nicole to meet with my vendors in person, which was extremely helpful. Nicole went over and beyond for me. She’s sweet, genuine, extremely organized, highly recommended among other vendors, punctual, a good communicator, an excellent problem solver, and detail-oriented. That’s Nicole in a nutshell! She always puts her brides first and always had my back when I had to make tough decisions or when I wanted something done a certain way, but other family members had other ideas :) No... Read more

  • Nicole is hands down the best planner we could have asked for. She is absolutely amazing! She went the extra mile to help us navigate the craziness of planning a wedding during covid and pull it off on our original date! Nicole was with us every step of the way with reassurance and creative problem solving. She had so many ideas and solutions we hadn't even thought of that really made a difference. Our wedding day went seamlessly thanks to Nicole and Melanie. We didn't have to worry about a single thing and just focused on our special day and having fun. We could not be more thankful to Nicole and her team.

  • We are very thankful to have had Tara with Premier Party Planners serve as our day-of-coordinator! Though we selected the day-of-coordination package, Tara was also very helpful in the days and months leading up to our wedding. Tara was always prompt to respond to questions, provided excellent vendor recommendations, and helped us to navigate any and all changes related to COVID. On the day of the wedding, Tara kept everything running smoothly and wore many hats - from keeping everyone on the same page, helping get food to everyone, bustling my dress (not a simple task), creating an umbrella tunnel to keep food and servers dry - and so much more. She did all these things joyfully and enthusiastically. Tara's assistant, Anna Claire, was also a great help on the day of the wedding. Thank you, Tara & Premier team for helping make our day perfect for us!

  • We really enjoyed working with Tara and Premier Party Planners, not only was Tara on the ball at all times she was extremely quick to respond to any questions prior to the event and always had a positive, upbeat can do attitude. During the event Tara was the first to offer any help throughout the event and she didn't micro manage at all which is a huge plus, she allowed us to showcase our expertise well and was always there if needed. Such a pleasure to work with, we look forward to working with her and Premier Party Planners again.

  • The Premier Party Planner team is absolutely amazing! Tara is easy to reach, she keeps things on time, and she knows how to run an event. As a vendor, I have worked with hundreds of vendors and I speak first-hand that she is amazing and I want her to plan every event we are a part of! Thank you, Tara, for being a hard worker!

  • Tara and Premier Party Planners are absolutely worth EVERYYY penny! She worked to make our covid wedding perfect with remaking our original plans. On the day of the wedding Tara and Anna Claire made our day so unbelievably smooth. We were kept on schedule, kept separate while both being at the venue without seeing each other, everything was BEAUTIFUL and vendors were scheduled and coordinated perfectly! It was my best investment in our wedding.

  • Tara from Premier Party Planners was absolutely fantastic! She made our wedding day 100% perfect. Being a COVID bride wasn't easy, but she seriously took all stress away. Anytime I had a question or needed to hash out details Tara was always a text or phone call away. She has the best list of approved vendors who are all professional, classy and provide excellent service - don't stray from the list! You should hands down book Premier Party Planners. Tara is professional and kind. She's organized and an excellent communicator. You don't feel like you're working with a wedding planner, but more of a friend. Tara and her assistant Anna Claire know exactly what they're doing regarding the best day of your life and will make it an absolute dream come true!

  • My son's wedding went off without a hitch (except the obvious one) thanks to Nicole from Premier Party Planners. It's a shame I don't live in Raleigh, because I would send all my family and friends to her and her assistant. There aren't words to describe how wonderful she was to work with, she made it look simple! Thanks again Nicole and company. Vickie Smith

  • Nicole was amazing from start to finish. We had the luck of planning a 2020 wedding where plans had to change multiple multiple times over the course of the year all the way up to two days before the event. She was very helpful, very quick to respond, took care of so many things for us that we couldn't even count and as mentioned before...was able to coordinate getting our entire wedding day plan bumped two hours earlier with about a day and a half notice due to Raleigh curfews put in place. She worked with everyone and pulled it off flawlessly as if nothing had happened. Can't recommend her enough. Aside from her professionalism, attention to detail and concern that our wedding went as perfect as possible, she talks to you as though you've been friends for years. 10/5 stars.
