One of the best decisions we made was involving Alecia from By Your Side Wedding Planning in our big day! First of all, Alecia is a lovely person but most importantly she is amazing at event managing and on the day coordination. She coordinated our ceremony rehearsal (working with our celebrant), was at our venue meeting with suppliers and setting up on the day before, coordinated the whole wedding day from start to finish and coordinated with suppliers to collect their stuff on the day following. Nothing was a problem, she handled the unexpected like a pro and did everything in her power to make our day as special as it could have been. Do yourself a favour and hire Alecia, you won’t regret it!

Alecia is the most organised and efficient person I have met! Throughout the whole wedding planning process, she always listened, suggested, and was super helpful in every way, as well as extremely cost conscious and willing to ensure the best deal was achieved, which I really appreciated. The wedding was held at home with the reception in a marquee, so there was a lot more to consider and organise than I had imagined. However, Alecia had comprehensive checklists to ensure every small detail was taken care of, so we were able to fully relax and enjoy the whole day to the max. I can’t thank her enough for the calm and efficient way she took control of the proceedings for the entire event and ensured everything ran so smoothly. Right down to the small details of completing last-minute tasks and liaising with all the suppliers on the day, Alecia was right onto it and nothing was ever too much trouble. If you want your wedding to be the most incredible day of your dreams with all the details taken care of, then I highly recommend you use Alecia to make this a reality for you. With her passion, amazing organisational skills, experience and professionalism, she will create the perfect day for you.

My wedding has been so much work but having you help with supplier options and plans has reduced so much load off me. You have been a great help, thank you so much.
