This is a real review! We were married on April 16 2016 and hired Gaitree from Plan My Day Weddings for the 6-week coordination. This was probably the best thing we did aside from getting married! Gaitree was warm, flexible and professional from the very beginning. She used her intuition and designer skills to craft an absolutely beautiful wedding for us that matched who we are as individuals and a couple. There are a number of other really important things that she got right and we would like to this information with other people thinking of using Plan My Day Weddings:
- Gaitree is culturally competent. She already knew and (took the time to learn) all of the cultural nuances that we realised were important to our wedding. In the end, this was very significant for our families (and for us!)
- Gaitree was very respectful to our family members and included them in the planning when appropriate.
- Gaitree was super organized (right down to having a mint for us before we walked down the aisle!). She was never phased by anything that may have come up and treated everyone and each situation with kindness.
- Gaitree was confident and humble. She clearly knew her worth but was never ever afraid to roll up her sleeves and do a little bit of extra work to make things work.
- Gaitree had a gentle way of giving feedback that could be heard (when we picked things that didn’t work, for example).
- Gaitree was reassuring, responsive and always available to talk things through. She worked with vendors to get us good prices and respected our money.
- Gaitree won over my dad! This is a big deal!
Hiring a planner is worth every dime if you want have a low-stress day that you can ENJOY. We would recommend Gaitree from Plan My Day Weddings. Our only regret was not hiring her to plan the entire wedding from beginning to end. If we had another major event like this, we would definitely return to Plan My Day Weddings.
We had a wonderful experience with Gaitree at Plan My Day for our month-of wedding planning package. Let me start off by saying that I’m the most organized person I know and also a control freak. Additionally we ended up diy-ing a lot of our wedding so there was a lot of set up involved. Well Gaitree did a wonderful job. She’s basically a wedding ninja.
Here are some points: – our ceremony was all timed to music and had a lot of different elements and it was perfect – our setup for both the ceremony and the dinner was exactly as I imagined it which is no small feat as we did all our own decorations, our own candy station, pool decor, etc. – I literally felt like she was reading my mind sometimes because a lot of things were just anticipated – our venue was kind of hard to deal with and she took a lot of stress away on the day of. – She’s just a pleasant person to deal with. You have a lot to deal with on your day and you want someone like Gaitree by your side! Thanks Plan My Day! Mrs. P
Gaitree provided amazing services on our wedding day! You truly did an amazing job at ensuring the day went over smoothly – we honestly don’t know what we would have done without you! You really are great at what you do and we are so happy you were there supporting us on such a special day. Wishing you all the best, and we will definitely be recommending your services whenever we have the chance!
Gaitree of Plan My Day assisted with month-of coordination with my wedding and she was fantastic! She answered emails promptly and if she couldn’t get back to me ASAP she let me know when she would be able to. She even conducted our rehearsal. The day after my wedding, my mother and maid of honour kept raving on how helpful Gaitree and her assistant were at the end of the wedding (ie getting gifts and items we brought together). She even remembered to pack up the remaining cake and favours that people neglected to take with them. I didn’t even know all that was happening because I was on the dance floor 🙂 Amazing team!
Thanks so much for all your assistance in making our wedding day perfect. We are both really happy that we had a chance to work with you and get to know you as a friend. We received a lot of positive feedback from our guests regarding your service on the wedding day. Thank you so much for paying attention to details and keeps us on track!! 🙂
We hired Gaitree…of Plan My Day Weddings & Events for our wedding. She was referred to me by my best friend who had recently gotten married. I attended my friend’s wedding and was very impressed with Gaitree’s presence and the way she handled the day of coordination for my friend.
We had a horrible experience with our first wedding planner who was disorganized and treated us like our wedding was not important because it was a small back yard wedding. Suffice it to say we fired her and hired Gaitree 3 weeks before the wedding. We had not confirmed anything except the food. I talked to Gaitree several times each day leading up to the day of the wedding and she was my rock.
She has an abundance of knowledge when it comes to weddings. Not only is Gaitree a certified wedding planner, but she is fantastic to work with! She is understanding, extremely helpful, and amazingly organized. She is very prompt at answering questions, has a slew of vendors she deals with regularly and can even get discounts for you. She made sure to get our vision of the day before making any suggestions or comments and even added meaningful insights into many of my ideas. She never promises what she cannot deliver and makes every attempt to make what you want happen. The other thing my husband and I really appreciated is that she would arrange all the vendors but we would negotiate the price and pay them. This way there are no hidden fees involved …This made the whole experience with Gaitree more comfortable and transparent. She is very upfront with everything and stays to the budget unless you authorize otherwise. She even did all the floral arrangements…and they were beautiful!!!
On the day of the wedding she, along with her assistant, did the décor and set up. They were running around throughout the event to ensure the food was put out at the right time, the vendors were paid, the tables were cleared, and everyone had a drink along with all the other small facets of a big day like this one. It was very sweet of her to ensure that if anyone needed anything they would go to her and not ask us so we can enjoy the day without worrying about “oh! Who has the sparklers? Or “where is the coffee for the urn?” Everything was calm and positive throughout the day. They even went so far as to oversee the entire wrap up and clean up. I swear I saw them in the kitchen washes dishes! Now that’s personal responsibility! I would recommend Gaitree in a heartbeat. Thank you, Gaitree, for making our day so beautiful, easy, and fun!
Gaitree was very helpful in the planning process the month before my wedding leading up to the actual day! I am so happy I got a wedding coordinator – I would not have been able to do it on my own! My day was super jam packed and Gaitree helped everything go over smoothly. I remember during the evening reception, she passed me tissues before the speeches (which I was SO thankful for) and she brought me and my husband dinner, as we hadn’t eaten. These added touches meant a lot!
Gaitree was amazing! What I appreciated most about her was how accommodating she was for someone like me. I am in the military and was in and out of Toronto to different places around Canada for months. I did not always have internet so she would sit on the phone with me for hrs. taking a lot of time out of her day. The day of my wedding and some other days I was not the most pleasant person to be around, yet her professionalism was immaculate. If I have another big event I won’t hesitate to hire her again and I definitely will recommend her to friends, family, etc. Thank you,
Gaitree and her team at Plan My Day Wedding + Events did a fantastic job at our wedding. I can’t imagine what our special day would have been without her. From our first meeting months before the wedding and well past midnight on our wedding day Gaitree and her team did a fantastic job! Gaitree developed a wedding itinerary and organized every little detail. She listened to the vision that we had for our wedding had a lot of great ideas that we incorporated as well. On the day of our wedding, everything went so smoothly and exceeded my expectations. As someone that likes to plan everything down to the last detail I had absolutely nothing to worry about, it seemed like the entire day was running itself. She coordinated over a dozen vendors, catered to 200 guests and helped our bridal party on our day. Having Gaitree there as our coordinator allowed me to enjoy my special day without worrying about the details. Weeks after our wedding guests are still telling us that ours was the best wedding they have ever attended, and we have Gaitree to thank for making our day so special. Thanks,
Gaitree and her staff were phenomenal while helping us execute our big day. We had a couple of instances over the course of the day that could have become problems but Gaitree was on top of everything. She surpassed all of our expectations. During the planning stages she was incredibly helpful as well, ensuring we didn’t overlook any important details. She was very responsive to any questions or concerns we had leading up to the wedding, and was available whenever we needed her. On the day itself she and her staff helped set up decor, coordinate the ceremony, and kept the entire reception on track. Whenever something came up Gaitree was able to handle it with ease. Thanks to her and her staff the day flowed perfectly. We feel so lucky to have had Gaitree and her wonderful staff there to help us; I honestly don’t know how the day would have gone without her. I highly recommend Gaitree and Plan My Day Weddings to anyone looking for someone to plan and coordinate their big day. She was worth every penny. Thanks Gaitree!
