Bee for the Day
There is nothing that I can write that will do justice for how amazing Bee for the Day is. They made our day unbelievably special and stress free by providing the highest quality of service. Not only was Brooke, Heather, and Shell extremely organized, but they ensured that any little whim was taken care of promptly and efficiently.
One of the largest benefits to the Bees is how well they work with everyone. They keep you on time without rushing you. It's your day after all, but they make sure you are aware of every situation and they are prepared for everything which makes you feel all the more ready for any situation. From the timing of walking down the aisle to when we did the garter toss and cake cutting, the Bees kept everything spaced out so we were able to relax, mingle, and entertain while still keeping traditions alive.
Example: It's hard to know when to get everything rolling along. We weren't sure when to escort the grandmas in or the parents, but the Bees had our back. They got us lined up and ready to roll.
Example: Receiving line, they helped the ushers keep the flow of people steady so it didn't take too long and we still got time to say hi and thank you to everyone. They then helped direct us where to go next for pictures and even helped line us up so we could get full family pictures (even extended family) while still remaining on time and ready to go the reception.
Example: We were starving after the ceremony, so we had a little pizza to tide us over. A groomsman had gotten some pizza sauce on his tie. Heather was able to get her emergency kit and get the pizza sauce out like it was never even there. We still had a long night of pictures ahead.
Example: Several times during the night guests had questions, vendors had questions, and they were all able to go to the Bees for answers. This allowed us to relax, allowed our parents to enjoy the night, and saved us from worrying about the details that can drag you down. We just enjoyed every minute while they coordinated behind the scenes.
Talking with both sets of parents and grandparents after the wedding, they had thought it was silly to have a wedding coordinator. They were HAPPILY wrong! They could not imagine what the wedding would have been like without them. The simplicity that they brought to the rehearsal, ceremony, and reception were underestimated. If there is one thing you do, get the Bees. They honestly made this experience the best time of my/our lives. I couldn't be happier with the way things went and a huge thank you goes out to the Bees.
These ladies are experts at what they do. I can not recommend them enough.
