Editorial Review. International Award Winning Event Planner produces every element of your event design with innovative design ideas that emulate your personal style.
So thankful I found them. As a fellow bride currently working with Center of Attention, I have nothing but great things to say. I attempted to plan my own wedding, but after many overwhelming nights of planning I found myself stressed. Working a very demanding job doesn't help either! Center of Attention was recommended to me more than a few times and as soon as I met them, I knew I was in good hands. My wedding was 13 months away when we started the planning process and although they had so many events going on, I never worried about my wedding. I have a normal budget for my wedding and the team was able to pull off my dream fall season wedding within my budget. They broke down everything in price so I know exactly what I am being charge for. I can't help but get a little upset over a previous review...I don't think that bride understood that although you hire your own vendors, at the very end who has to work with them on your wedding day? The event coordinators! So of course they can charge a service fee, it's just common sense. I am so thankful the team is there to help because I do not want to deal with any problems on my wedding day. We are 3 months away, I can't wait!
I have never worked with an event company this great before. The entire team at Center of Attention; Michele, Carrie, Christine, Tonya, Richard, Mandy...every single one of them took excellent care of us. I am a corporate event planner and hire event producers all the time. Most companies are small and only have 1 or 2 employees. Working with Center of Attention was an entirely different experience. Everyone in their office knew every aspect of our events. It didn't matter who I called; they all could address a question and create solutions.
On the day of the event, I was treated like a rock star. I came early and watched in the final hours as everything magically came together with precision. They were a fine oiled machine. I must admit about an hour and a half before the first night of events, I was concerned about how they would get it done it time. Then it was like a team of magical elves came through and suddenly the entire space was transformed. All equipment was removed, garbage gone and in their place candles burning, dry ice on our bar creating a haze, our logo glowing on the wall. All complete with 30 minutes to spare. Incredible.
b/c we got christine instead of michele....
worst idea EVER. if you're on a budget, don't go here. they do NOT want to help you!
i'm a very DIY person, but finding the ceremony loc was stressing me out too much with my prod mgr job. i hired ctr of attention to find me a location and be there for the rehearsal/ceremony. the coordinator assigned to us was christine.
a few weeks after we turned in our deposit i asked for an update on the ceremony site search. this became 6 weeks of me trying to get ANY details to no avail. (she DID say that she was looking into several reception sites. STOP. Remember when I told you I ONLY wanted you to look into ceremony sites?)
finally, after 2 months, i sent her an angry email. she immediately sent me 5 locations w/pricing. (not 2 months of work). my fiance and i immediately go to a couple of them. i ask one place how much they would charge. $750. christine told me this same location would cost $2000. Yeah, instead of trying to help me, she's quoting me a higher price so she can make a bigger commission.
i'm setting up my own mtgs with the locations, I'm getting the menus, I'm getting better pricing... what am I paying a wedding coordinator for?!?!
christine put together a budget for us. she gave herself $1500 when the only thing we asked her to do was find the ceremony location and be there for the rehearsal and wedding. at most, this should have been about $750. oh, get this, she charged us for the photographer i hired MYSELF (my college friend). she ordered flowers i didn't want (to make the bill more expensive for a bigger commission)
The funny thing about this budget is that it didn't include the wedding dress or groom's tux. WHAT WEDDING COORDINATOR DOESN'T BUDGET FOR THE WEDDING DRESS??
if you're a bride with unlimited amounts of $$ who's willing to pay full price (or MORE) for everything, then go with ctr of attention.
If you're a bride who expects your coordinator to be on your side, STAY AWAY FROM THESE GUYS.
Best Wedding I Have Ever Been To.
I just came back from the best wedding I have ever been to. It was an entire weekend of activities at a hidden ranch in Palm Springs. From the moment I arrived their were activities the entire weekend. One moment we were sipping Mint Julips while watching the Kentucky Derby, the next we were singing pop songs around a campfire with the cutest guitarists and eating S'mores.
I just got home and wanted to check out more about the wedding coordinator. That's when I found this website and felt compelled to write and share how great this whole weekend was.
The wedding was on Saturday and captured all of the unique my friends personality traits. From a Female Rabbi (the bride is always cheering for open minds) to readings from their favorite poets.
After the ceremony, we were escorted to the reception by a faux gospel choir singing "Let the Sun Shine" down a path with a ranch sign clearly made just for them which read, "Eat Drink and be Married."
The party was on a golf course, which was hard to tell because it was filled with shabby chic couches with chandeliers hanging from the trees along with flowing fabrics.
All of the food was amazing, I think I ate; lamb, chicken, carved beef....but my favorite was the Sprinkles Cupcakes.
After the reception, on to the after party around the pool. More food, more music and more vodka. We even had to talk the bride out of hopping into the hot tub with her wedding dress on.
This wedding was the best ever. I would highly recommend the wedding planner.
Best Team Ever. I have to share that these ladies at Center of Attention are the greatest!!! They make planning your event fun and stress free! They are creative and full of energy! You HAVE TO use them for you next event. You won't want to use anyone else ever again. I used them for a huge event and love em!!!
I work for a hard to please boss. As soon as I called, they set up an appointment and sent a press kit right over. As soon as we saw their ideas, we knew we were in good hands.
A toast!!!!. Okay, I found them on this website so I thought is was appropriate to write back and say how wonderful they are. Okay, I confess, my wedding hasn't happened yet, but the planning it has been a breeze. I work long crazy hours and it is such a relief to have someone else spending time on the details so that I can relax and enjoy.
We did it. Cheers! Break open the champagne. You were a gorgeous bride. I wish you and Mark years of happiness. Thank you for inviting me to be an addition to your very special day.
A+. Fantastic company. Helped me plan my wife's birthday party without any stress. Stronglty recommend them.
Made planning my wedding easy. I just loved how Michele build a wedding around my budget. At first I was heart broken because I didn't know some of the florist and photographers she suggested, but she was right-they were hidden gems.
