  • From the beginning, JoAnn was a calming professional to help us through our wedding planning. We had the wedding outside of the town where we lived and having her to help us with our questions and needs was help and reassuring that we made the right choice. On our wedding day she was great at keeping all of us on schedule and it made our day run so well! We would recommend her services to anyone. Thank for everything JoAnn!

  • JoAnn was the best! I was never overwhelmed of felt stressed, even in the days leading up to the wedding. And having JoAnn there for the wedding day made it possible for me to just enjoy the day as JoAnn took care of everything! I even had several wedding guests tell me how great she was! She is the best!

  • As a naturally nervous gal, from the get go, I wanted to hire a day-of-coordinator. It took some time to convince my fiance, but in the end, we both know JoAnn at Weddings Without Worries was the best choice. From day one, JoAnn helped me feel calm and I knew she would be the right person to coordinate our wedding. She was flexible with her meeting times with me as I live in the Chicagoland area and was planning a central Iowa wedding. She was always cracking jokes (in a professional way) that helped me feel comfortable all the way through the wedding festivities. JoAnn took charge at our rehearsal and made sure our ceremony decor was on point - she has a great eye to make things look fabulous. I found the cost for her services was lower than other coordinators I had previously contacted, yet she delivered above and beyond. If you're contemplating hiring a day-of-coordinator, I'd 100% recommend doing it and recommend that you hire JoAnn - she'll help you relax and keep you worry free ... Read more

  • There's not much you can't say about JoAnn - responsive, responsible, timely, fast thinker, great problem solver, and many more! JoAnn really helped steer us in the right direction and forced us to address some things we hadn't thought to think about. However, what stands out the most is this: our venue was run by just one guy. Unfortunately, a few months after we booked the venue, he passed away. JoAnn knew before I did and was calling me for my thoughts. She also was reaching out to other vendors and thinking about plan B long before I was really able to comprehend what was happening. I SERIOUSLY do not know what I would have done without her. Likely wallow in self-pity and book another venue without putting in as much work as she did to ensure our that we could keep our original venue. If you are on the fence about a wedding coordinator, get off and just hire one. You won't regret it and you definitely won't regret choosing JoAnn either.

  • Even if you don't want a full on wedding planner for the entire planning process, having someone there for the day/weekend of the event is worth every single penny! Anything that goes wrong you don't have to worry about it because it will be taken care of, some things you might not even know went wrong! There is someone there to guide you through the day which is so valuable since the day really takes a lot out of you! Worrying about anything is the last thing you want to do! JoAnn did an amazing job to help us through the rehearsal and the day of the wedding and checked in with us numerous times in the months leading up to the wedding. I would highly recommend her to everyone!

  • JoAnn will bend over backwards for you. I had such a wonderful experience with Weddings Without Worries and all I can say, is that I truly had the perfect wedding day. I didn't have to worry about a single thing and honestly got to enjoy each and every moment because I knew it was taken care of behind the scenes. JoAnn had everything detailed and organized since the day we met. Wedding planning is not an easy process (as I have learned) but Wedding Without Worries made it so much easier than I had anticipated. THANK YOU!

  • I hired JoAnn as my day-of wedding coordinator and I'm so glad that I did! JoAnn did an amazing job of helping me create my wedding timeline, taking control of the wedding rehearsal, setting up all of my decorations, and she made sure that everything went smoothly on my wedding day. Her services were my best wedding investment! I would definitely recommend her services to any bride considering getting a wedding coordinator.

  • JoAnn was great to work with! We hired her for her services for just the rehearsal/wedding day to be sure that things ran smoothly and they did! She was easy to work with and was super organized; she knows what she is doing. JoAnn definitely listened to us and made the changes we wanted regarding the wedding day schedule. She made sure that on the wedding day, everyone was where they needed to be. We had a pretty rowdy wedding party and she was able to wrangle them. If anything went wrong on our wedding day, we didn't know then and we still don't know now! I definitely recommend JoAnn as a wedding coordinator!

  • JoAnn was amazing! Made the process fun and exciting... She literally took the stress off of our hands. She came up with everything from vendors- to theme- and she's worked with a ton of people in the business. I honestly don't think we would of had our dream wedding had it not been for her. So incredibly happy we found her.

  • At first I was hesitant to hire a wedding coordinator because I was nervous it wouldn't be MY day. I was afraid she would be making most of the decisions. I was completely wrong and was absolutely amazed with JoAnn! I will never regret hiring her. She has a variety of packages that vary from day of coordination to complete wedding planning help all at very affordable prices, and she also is flexible with her packages and can cater to what you want. She honestly was more of a friend than a coordinator throughout the whole process--we sent texts, skyped, and met up for coffee/lunch to review details. She also just texted to check in and see how I was doing. She does way more than just help plan a wedding! More importantly, she is the person that gets things done and keeps you stress free the night of the rehearsal dinner and day of! She even managed to creatively come up with using party horns/blowers for our grand exit when our venue did not allow rice/birdseed and we did not want b... Read more

  • Believe it or not, life happens when you are planning a wedding. Jo Ann is the perfect person to help you with ALL of your wedding planning needs while you keep up with your busy life. She is the picture of professionalism. She was so attentive to all of our questions, requests, needs, and suggestions. Jo Ann went above and beyond throughout the entire wedding planning process. With years of experience to back her she will no doubt help you make your day 5x better than you could have imagined. I can honestly say that I could NOT have planned our wedding without her. No detail goes overlooked. I would recommend Jo Ann to anyone!!

  • Joann was a breathe of fresh air and took all my worries away! She stepped in after I had to fire a previous wedding planner and got herself up to speed and handled everything flawlessly! From my initial meeting, to helping me choose rentals, to helping me with an agenda, to coordinating with every vendor, to even ordering food for us the day of the wedding...she was the absolute best! I was able to sit back, relax and not worry about a thing on the most important day of my life, because she had everything handled and under control. I truly do not know what I would have done without her!

  • Joann was absolutely awesome. Not only did she help organize everything but she also was our officiant. She went above and beyond our expectations. The groom was a bit hesitant on using this service but afterwards thought it was money extremely well spent and would definitely hire her if again if we had to restart the process.
