Connor was our day of coordinator for our wedding and made things run very smoothly! I prepped her with my wedding binder and she took it from there making sure all vendors who arrived were coordinated and directed. She would come up and ask questions if needed but kept them very minimal as she understands your day is already busy and you have made so many decisions to get there. We very last minute decided to do shots before the ceremony and she made the run to the bar to get them for the wedding party before we walked down the aisle. She worked effortlessly with our other vendors such as photographer and videographer as well as kept in communication with me to see if there was anything I needed. If looking for an event coordinator or planner - I’d 1000x recommend her!

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with the ladies at Everlasting Events for our April 2024 wedding! Erin and Megan did a wonderful job planning our wedding. They helped us decided when, where, and how to set things up with professionalism and constant communication. There were times during the planning process where I was convinced that they cared more about our wedding than we did. It was that enthusiasm and drive we needed to make sure everything went according to plan. Because of their passion, our wedding was amazing. We didn't have to worry about anything being out of place or going wrong. It was to the point where if someone asked me a question I'd tell them to ask Erin or Megan instead because they were the ones who could get stuff done. If you need planning and/or coordination help for an event, there is nobody I trust more than Everlasting Events to get the job done. They will exceed your expectations and leave you with memories to last a lifetime!

Awarded Best of Zola
Elizabeth bliss events was the best day of coordinator. She came all the way to Nebraska to help us! She had several meetings with us beforehand and helped us figure out details like decor and food. We had our wedding in a barn so there was nothing in there and she set up all of our decor and tables as well as our entire ceremony. She made sure everything ran smoothly all day long and made my day so much less stressful. Do yourself a huge favor and get a day of coordinator. Also she is super reasonably priced especially for everything that she provides We loved working with her!

Cherish the Day 

5.0

Tipton, IA
  • Offers 4 services
  • Starts at $1,400
  • Serves Ames, IA

Welcome to Cherish the Day, you are in the right place! My name is Lisa Syring and planning/coordinating your dream day is my game, no need to look any further. Having a Certified Wedding Planner in your back pocket is a great gift you can give to yourself and then wonder how you thought you could manage without me. Lead me to your dream day and I will execute every detail (plus more)! I love to remind my couples if, at the end of your dream day you are married to your best friend, all we did was a success!! My couples entrust in us and execution is key to us.

We could not recommend Cherish the Day enough!! I’ve been raving to anyone who asks—and even those who don’t—about working with Lisa. I initially started looking for “Day Of” coordinators when Lisa presented her “Month Of” package. It was the perfect amount of help for someone who was willing to do all of the legwork of finding and selecting vendors and just wanted assistance with the communication and execution once it was closer to the wedding date. We met with Lisa over a year before the wedding just so we could talk about our vision for our wedding and to see what areas we might need help in. She gave vendor recommendations when needed and made sure I had checklists to stay on track with booking everything. With her experience, she asked us questions about things we didn’t even realize we need to consider and gave suggestions if we were struggling. The best part was that she handled all of the vendor communication in the month leading up to the wedding, and she built the most detailed timeline for us (bridal party and vendors) to follow. My goal was to have someone that any and all questions could be directed to so that I didn’t have to add any stress—Lisa was that person and so, so much more. Both Lisa and her assistant (there on the day of) are amazing to work with—so personal and professional at the same time and there every step of the day. Cherish the Day is truly one of the best investments we made for our wedding!!

Team Yellow Rose truly brought our vision to life. From our initial consultation, I knew that Isabel and I were on the same page. Isabel was creative with different ways to maintain our budget. She went above and beyond by MAKING CANDLES in the exact shade I wanted when we could not find any. Though we did not meet in person often, she was always a quick text or call away which we really valued. I can't thank this team enough for making our dream wedding a reality.

I had SSE & their Pine Wedding Management package but I wish I would’ve hired them for more. I am a professional photographer and worked with them as a vendor first and KNEW I had to have them on my side when I got married!! Their professionalism and organization is top tier. The SSE team was incredible with contact before and on my wedding, planning, organizing, setting up, and running the whole thing. They have helpful tips and recommendations on anything your wedding day may need and will help with it all. They made my brunch wedding day come true, kept everything on time while also being kind, professional, and FUN with all our guests and family! They were there from start to finish with smiles on their faces. I recommend this team to any bride & groom with full confidence every time!

From beginning to end, our team approaches every moment with you in mind. We stand by the belief that no occasion is too big or too small to be handled the utmost level of care and professionalism. Memories and love last a lifetime.

Jacki and her team are simply fabulous! There is so much more to hair and makeup services than simply making you look and feel your best, though they will do that too! Just as important is Jacki's understanding of wedding days and special events, their timelines, working with other vendors as a team, and how best to be able to touch up your makeup throughout the day (esp those lips!) and making sure you look fresh! She takes care to listen to her clients' needs rather than choosing what style to use. Jacki is just one of the kindest, most lighthearted and fun wedding professionals out there. She would be a great addition to your wedding team and be an amazing way to start your day!

Awarded Best of Zola
My wife and I hired Mostly Becky to do planning and design for our wedding in Des Moines, Iowa. We both had recently moved to Des Moines from Chicago, so we had about 200 guests coming from out of town and wanted to ensure that we had a magical wedding for them to attend. Mostly Becky delivered. Mostly Becky's professional team met with us at every step in the process. My wife had a strong vision of what she wanted the wedding to be like, the vibes, and many of the specifics. They were able to make our dreams a reality. I cannot imagine a more professional, competent, and reassuring group to make the stress of wedding planning go as smoothly as possible. If you are looking to hire a wedding planner in Des Moines (or anywhere else that Mostly Becky operates), lock them down early.
