    wow....in shock...no emotions just yet , location and wedding coordinator reviews was all I based my location pick on!!! Ok maybe I am slighty freakin out. Ok I want to be positive. I actually used to work in a wedding locale a few years back, I remember that all coordinators were great as long as they were trained a certain way . Kelley and the owner must know all of our high expectations so I don't doubt the two new coordinators will do just that, try to fill in Kelley's shoes.

     

     

    I'd love to know asap who these two coordinators are so that we can all communicate and build a rapport with them prior to our wedding days.

     

    Ok laides lets not freak out....at least we're not having a crisis like the Dreams locations....sorry to say but they change coordinator like changing underwear...and the majority of brides still end up having a great wedding.

     

    So let's look at the positives:

    Kelley is training them,

    they will be trained just great for the december and onward weddings.....

     

    Ok ladies ...

      Just out of curiosity, have you started any planning with Kelley or recieved the questionaire thing??? You're wedding is only 11  days before mine and I haven't got or started anything with her yet and I'm only 4 1/2 months away??? I think this is my biggest concern, we haven't started anything and new people don't even start until the end of September/October. I'm really concerned with WHEN we're going to get to plan and how experienced the new planners will be. I am trying really hard not to freak out and be positive, but it's hard... maybe I just need the shock of this to wear off. The whole planning process has not been very easy for us, our TA has been pretty useless, FI still doesn't know what he's wearing and now this too. I just really wanted a stress free, fun wedding and the whole process to be "easy" and it hasn't been!!!! Sorry for the rant ladies!!!

        Kya,

        Kelley reached out to us with her questionnaire pretty much exactly 2.5 months from our wedding, so you have plenty of time.   She is emailing more frequently now that we are getting closer.  It's best if you start developing a list of questions you have for her now, types of flowers you like or sample bouquets/arrangements, etc, that will be really easy to get everything started.  We have a bunch of special requests so she is working to accommodate us on them.

        If you need help or want me to send you the questionnaire she sent or the questions I had for her, PM me your email and we can chat!

          Oh really only 2 1/2 months out, that makes me feel better. I know a lot of girls that said she sent it out to them like 5-6 months prior. I have definitely calmed down, I am sure our wedding will be everything and more, I was just really looking forward to working with Kelley and had to get over the fact that I will not be anymore. If you don't mind sending me the question so I can start to think a head that would awesome. I will pm you now!!!! Thank you so much!!!

HELP!!!!!!



             

            I had both Kelley and Nicole (the WC before Kelley) at my wedding and both were amazing.  So given the track record I am sure that the next WC will be amazing as well!

             

            And I don't think I started discussing details w/Nicole until just a few weeks before our wedding so don't worry, it will get taken care of - they're amazing there!

              So I was going to comment on Kya's first post that i quoted but then Ann and Ali said exactly what I was going to say!

               

              Great advice Ali. I think it is best to just start planning details that you want on your own. collect pic examples of flowers, tables, aisle runners, etc. so that when the coordinator does contact you, you are ready to go because you have it all ready.

               

              Kya- 4.5 months out is a LONG LONG time. As Ann said I dont think it was until about a month or so before the wedding until i really started communicating with the coordinators. Planning a LC wedding is super easy and stress free. I knew how busy the coordinators were so i really tried to not "bug" them months and months before. I would just come here instead and ask all of my minor detail questions :) i would get answers much more quickly here too. Oh and in regards to your FI not having his attire yet..try not to let that bother you either. My DH didn't have his suit until 1 week before we left! yep i stressed and was sort of PO'ed at him because it really was the 1 thing he HAD to do. but well he did get it done and it was fine!

               

              I am sure Kelly will get those new coordinators trained and up to speed in no time!

                  We were there from June 15th-29th and got married June 18th. Th weather started to turn a bit at the end of the trip. I'm not even sure if they do weddings in July. June was really nice but HOT

                    Thanks everyone for the awesome support and advice. I am feeling a 100% better now having chatted with some of you. I think my biggest problem was being disappointed not having Kelley after having started with her and hearing such amazing things about her. I am sure the new ladies will be just as awesome and our wedding will be just as amazing too. Thank you again everyone you have really helped calm my nerves and stress!!!! I would be totally lost right now without this forum and all your help!!!!!

                      :) I am glad you are feeling better about the whole thing.  Knowing Kelley attention to detail she is be putting the new people though the ringer and making sure they are perfect!
