Amazing, professional, can-do team!
My wife and I are from Sydney, but live in NYC and wanted a wedding in Phuket. We’d spent a lot of time in Phuket before and thought we’d be able to organize everything ourselves. 2 months before our wedding, we caved and realized we were out of our depth and needed the help of a wedding planner. Without any hesitation, Chonlada and May at the Bridal Planner jumped on the phone with us and gladly took on our wedding! We really couldn’t believe they agreed to do it given the short time frame and the requests we were asking for – but they did and not once showed any signs of being overwhelmed.
My top 3 pros:
1. Incredibly organized (e.g. detailed run sheets, contacts, vendors). Makes you feel at ease knowing they are on top of the detail, they know where all your guests are (by name!) and where you and wife should be at all times! One of the most impressive moments was when I had to change the seating plan the night before and I realized May had memorized the name of each of my guests on that table! Amazing.
2. Very responsive to all questions (responds on email or phone same day). This made us feel really confident in their ability, especially when you’re trying to organize from another country. There’s no English barrier at all, Chonlada speaks perfect English and is very switched on.
3. Respectful of our budget. Not a single dollar was unaccounted for and no surprise charges at the end of the day. Very detailed budgets and costs sheet prepared. There was some items we wanted to spend on and some we didn’t care too much about. Chonlada and May were really great at showing us the different options available to us at different budgets. Bottom line was that whatever option we took, they assured us it would look tasteful and coordinated with our overall wedding theme.
For a destination wedding, there’s a lot that you can’t foresee. But when you have wedding planner like Chonlada and May, they make you feel at ease, no request is too hard (no matter how late you ask them… even a few hours before) they are there and they deliver!
Our wedding was absolutely amazing. Everything was above and beyond what we ever imagined.
Thanks again Chonlada, May and the whole Wedding Planner team! Can’t wait to see you guys again next time we’re in Phuket!
