My wife and I put Charlie and her team to the test by having her help us plan our 100 person wedding in under 3 months in my parents backyard. She nailed it.
Starting 3 months out Charlie would have weekly meetings with us and give us our to-do lists. This helped us a lot in order to keep us in the loop with all the vendors and filling in all the blanks my wife and i had no idea about. Due to our time constraint we didn't have many options and had to make quick decisions, luckily for us, this is not Charlies first rodeo and her connections within the industry helped make our day come together.
Charlie was very responsive throughout the entire 3 months, she would get back to us in a timely manner which we really appreciated due to our time constraints.
On the day of the wedding she killed it. Made our dream wedding come to light, everything was exactly how my wife and I envisioned.
We cannot thank Pretty Plans enough for there dedication to make our Wedding day a success. Overall we would recommend Charlie to anyone who needs assistance with the wedding planning or just the day of. Her packages are priced perfectly and Charlie will not let you down. You can tell she loves her job and making her clients happy.

Can't recommend highly enough! Pretty Plans was extremely proactive with communication leading up to the day and planned an amazing wedding for us.
Day of was stress free due to the Pretty Plans team taking care of everything that came up.
- Laura and Benjamin Haggith
Charlie and the team at Pretty Plans are amazing!
They made our planning process and wedding day so easy, organized and enjoyable. I had the pleasure of working with Charlie for over the year since Covid-19 impacted our date, and she handled all of our changes and updates like a true professional making sure everything remained organized, on time and on budget. I HIGHLY recommend using their services for your upcoming wedding or event.

Planning a wedding wasn't easy, now imagine doing it during a pandemic. My now wife found Pretty Plans on Instagram and I had a friend that used Charlie and her team before and they came highly recommended.
After our first chat with Charlie hiring Pretty Plans was a no brainer for us. Charlie had a way to ensure my wife was comfortable the entire time, after every call we'd both look at each other and say "WOW, I feel so much better about this"
Now since our wedding date had changed multiple times so did our wedding capacity. Charlie, didn't flinch.... She found us the perfect vendors for our outdoor wedding and made the perfect day come to life.
Having Charlie, Emily and Randi present on the day of the wedding was remarkable. Everything ran so smooth from start to finish. I was truly blown away.
Looking back we know we couldn't have done it without them and would recommend ANYONE who is getting married to look know further, Pretty Plans Wedding & Event Coordination are the real deal. You won't find a better team in your corner.

They are amazing!
I could not have asked for my wedding ceremony to go any better!! My husband and I hired Pretty Plans before the pandemic happened and as the situation developed, Charlie and her team were there to help and guide me throughout all of the tough decisions I had to make!!
They made sure everything went according to schedule (a very detailed timeline that they created for the day), fixed any & every issue that arose and thought of all the extra details that I probably would not have considered! One thing that was super important to me was communication & Charlie and her team were always prompt with emails and any inquiries that I had for them. After working with them and having our ceremony turn out so well this year, I am beyond excited to see how she will help execute our reception next year!!! Charlie and her team provides relief to my worries and they are so lovely to work with!! If you are looking for a wedding planner, look no further! :)

Charlie is the absolute best! I could not have had the wedding I wanted, without her. She was extremely organized, kept us on track, and has a very calming presence.
She is also lovely to be around and made the day so special. I would highly recommend!
- Emily Hamovitch and Josh Corn
Charlie was incredible to work with. She made the last month leading up to our wedding a breeze! On our wedding day she took care of everything so my husband and I could actually enjoy ourselves and have a stress free day, which is exactly what we had. Her attention to detail is amazing. She will remember things you will forget and she will think of things that you would never think of. We had a perfect wedding day and it was because we had Charlie. We would 100% recommend her for your special day!
- Rebecca and Andrew Cairns
Nothing but great things to say about working with Charlie / Pretty Plans Coordination! My husband and I were a bit out of sorts when it came to planning a wedding, and being a couple that lives in NYC far away from Toronto where we got married, it definitely made us double on edge... but honestly we had nothing to worry about! People kept telling me that they have never seen a bride so relaxed/ happy at their own wedding and honestly without Charlie it wouldn't have been possible. She was amazing with my family and she went over and above to make sure that everything was under control and everyone was having a great time. The 4 months leading up to our wedding when I started to get a little insane, she always managed to keep calm, not make me feel crazy (which was greatly appreciated), and keep things moving forward. Super professional, super kind-hearted, super hardworking, and a pleasure to share the experience of planning a wedding with!

Words cannot begin to describe how happy and thankful we are for you to have joined our important day (aka the BEST day of our lives!). We can't stop reminiscing on how perfect it went, and a lot of that was because of you. You took care of every single detail, big, small and in between. Everyone was raving about you, especially how pleasant you are to be around and your calm nature. Pretty Plans was easily the best wedding decision we made! We will be sure to spread the word to all of our friends!
- Kathleen and Mike Hegarty
We were so happy and grateful to have you on board as our Day-of-Coordinator for our wedding. As soon as you were brought onto the team, you were much involved - providing your professional advice on areas that we never thought we needed, filling in gaps that we were not aware existed, and initiating and engaging in various discussions to ensure the day-of events were properly planned out. We loved that you were highly organized and that you always made yourself available for us, which gave us a peace of mind.
The day-of execution was flawless. We felt very much at ease with your calm presence and that can-do attitude. Your coordination prior to and during the wedding with our vendors helped ensure things were falling into plan throughout the event. We couldn't have done it without your help! We would definitely recommend you to friends and couples who are looking for a planner or coordinator. Too bad we can only do this once with you!
- Elva and Dan Lu
It’s impossible to put into the words how incredible you are. The second you stepped into the day I felt a calm I needed on such a whirlwind of emotions. You kept everything organized, exciting, fun, professional and above all else you ensured it was everything I ever wanted. You listened carefully to all the details I poured my heart into and they all came to life better than I could have imagined. Having you be part of our day was one of the best decisions my husband and I made when choosing our vendors. You took every challenge and idea and you executed it with grace and poise like I’ve never seen before. Thank you so much for being there for me, and now thank you for being a friend.
- Ellesha and Michael Colavecchia
Best. Decision. Ever.
We loved working with Charlie! After planning our wedding in two short months (talk about stressful) I thought we had everything organized and considered not hiring a wedding day coordinator or asking a friend. Thankfully, we were in a rush so we just hired a pro. My husband and I both kept saying that Charlie was THE BEST vendor we hired for our wedding. She's incredibly organized, will make great suggestions and can calmly handle last minute changes. We both had the best time at our wedding, drinking, mingling and enjoying the day knowing that behind the scenes, Charlie had it all under control. We've already recommended her to our engaged friends!
- Anusha and Michael Dawson
Charlie is unreal. She was our day of wedding coordinator and went ABOVE AND BEYOND to make our day so special. Everything went so smoothly, she set up all of our decor so beautifully and handled everything like a complete professional. I couldn't have asked for a better person to work with and highly suggest her for anyone looking for a wedding planner / day of coordinator. Ryan and I thank you so much Charlie, our wedding wouldn't have gone the way it did without you!
- Carly and Ryan McGraw
There simply aren't enough kind words to describe Charlie and Pretty Plans.
From the very first phone call, I knew she and I clicked.
Not once did she say 'no' or 'I can't'. Always advocated for me and my husband and played the buffer role very well with my mother in law. The day of she moved throughout the day with such fluidity. Being everywhere and nowhere all at once. She was right there when we needed her but out of sight when we didn't.
We truly had a magical day and can't thank you enough!
- Tanya and Sheldon Minott
Charlie was a lifesaver for our wedding!
She was organized, easy to work with and is truly passionate about weddings. Our wedding would have not been the same without her. She worked diligently with our vendors to ensure that everything ran smoothly for the day. She did an amazing job and I am so thankful to have had her there for our day. I highly recommend her and her team to anyone who is getting married!
- Stefana and Niko Anastassakis
We just want to thank you. You are so wonderful and I would've lost my mind months ago without your guidance. I think everyone can appreciate your hard work easing my anxiety levels throughout the entire process. I am SO happy you were referred to us and I absolutely will be telling every engaged couple I ever meet that you are the one to save them from wedding failure.
- Lily and Ibrahim Tams
We can’t say enough good things about all the help you provided - you always had everything under control and I literally never once had to worry that something was missing etc. (which is saying a lot for me, I’m definitely an over-thinker!)
We really appreciated how calm, organized and professional you were, you kept the whole group on track without us ever feeling stressed (I don’t know if we were ever behind schedule, but if we were, you figured it out and never let it show).
We will definitely be recommending you in the future!
- Shawna Leclair and Casey Vucko
There is no one else I would’ve rather had there on the day. You helped make our wedding day everything we could have ever imagined and more! It was a magical evening. Thank you for absolutely everything.
- Paula and Graham Mitchell
Charlie allowed us to enjoy our day and not worry about a single thing. The wedding party was always informed of where they had to be, and what they had to do, removing any stress and confusion out of a very busy day. We're not sure how she does it, but she can truly heard cats.
- Jenna and Patrick Raatz
After my first meeting with Charlie, I knew we chose the right person to help our wedding day run smoothly. Charlie is professional, personable, reliable, extremely organized and such a great person to work with. The month leading up to our wedding she reminded me of things I would have otherwise forgot about during the stress of wedding planning. My husband and I can honestly say we worried about absolutely nothing that day and were able to enjoy our wedding. If there were any issues, we definitely didn’t know about them...which means Charlie went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. We can’t begin to describe how appreciative and happy we were to have Charlie at our special day. 100% recommend meeting with her if you haven’t already!
- Stephanie and Jeff Mok
We found Pretty Plans through a mutual friend and honestly, hiring her was one of the best wedding decision we ever made! Leading up the wedding,
Charlie and her team took total charge in reaching out vendors, putting together a timeline, making a decor/floral checklist and answering e-mails all the way up to the wedding; things I did not have any time to handle (and didn't even know how!).
On the day of the wedding, she took charge in keeping our timeline on track (HUGE), organizing vendors, ensuring the tables were set up correctly, handing out payments to vendors, among MANY other hings.
Having Pretty Plans on-site on our wedding day was the leading force to keeping myself and my husband calm and simply just having a good time, both not having to worry about anything that was going on behind the scenes.
We don't know what we would've done without you!!
- Kate and Jordan Glover
Charlie was one of the best decisions we made in the wedding planning process! She made the last month of wedding planning so easy and enjoyable which allowed us to head into wedding week with nothing but excitement and good vibes.
Not only did she make the planning easy, but her presence on the day of was calming, reassuring and so incredibly friendly. It felt like she had been a part of our lives for years, not days.
We loved working with Charlie and would 100% recommend her for your big day!
- Alexandra and Fraser Gillan
Charlie and the Pretty Plans team were a dream to work with. From planning to the day of, we could not have done it without them. They understood our vision for the wedding and brought it wonderfully to life.
On the day, Charlie kept everything in order (we were ready early - which we're pretty sure is unheard of) and helped us make the most incredible memories.
Charlie, thank you for all of your hard work, amazing style, constant support, organization, and for helping to make our wedding the most incredible day we've ever had!

If you're a Bride (or Groom) looking for the perfect wedding planning service look no further than Pretty Plans.
I was a Bride coming from a public relations and event planning background who thought I could do it all...boy was I wrong.
Hiring Pretty Plans to coordinate my wedding was the best decision that I made.
Charlie is the perfect mix of organized and laid-back, she's the kind of event planner who crosses every “T" and dots every every “I" without being overbearing; never bossy. She has an uncanny ability to make you and your wedding party feel completely at ease.
On the day of our wedding Charlie fit in seamlessly. getting along with friends and family effortlessly, making everyone feel important, comfortable and in the know. Best of all, she had a way of making me, the Bride, feel like I could just kick back relax and enjoy my big day knowing that every little detail was meticulously cared for, organized and would be executed to the highest standards.
