Shari was extremely professional and a valuable resource throughout our wedding planning process. When we first started planning, we were living outside of Pittsburgh and Shari helped us navigate all of the vendor options to pick the right fits. Once we moved to Pittsburgh a few months out from the wedding, Shari expertly helped us refine our vision (we would have been clueless without her!) and create what ultimately ended up as a perfect ceremony and a stunning reception. And on the day of the wedding, Shari and her team executed perfectly and were always nearby if anything was needed. If there were any hiccups that night, we didn’t see or know about them, which is exactly how it should be. Shari was one step ahead throughout the whole process and helped create a special night. Many of our family and friends were from out of town and were absolutely blown away by the evening – it was unforgettable!
I can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience working with Shari while planning my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. I contacted Shari to work with her as a consultant, because I was stuck and could not seem to make any decisions regarding this big event in our lives. My questions ranged from: what kind of linens should I use – to how do I select all of the vendors – to do we need a theme – to how should I arrange the seating – to where do I put the fabulous candy bar (the only request from my daughter). Basically, where do I get started!Shari really took the time to answer all of my questions with professionalism and care. She gave me suggestions that were not only unique and interesting (not the “same old, same old”), but that fit my budget, and allowed me to feel like I was able to tackle everything on my “to do” list.In addition to putting my mind at ease regarding the planning, she also created a timeline for me to provide to my DJ and venue contact so that things would run smoothly on the day of the Bat Mitzvah. My family, especially my husband who now can truly see the value in this service, are thrilled with this experience with Perfectly Planned by Shari. I highly recommend her consulting, day of, and planning services to anyone who is celebrating a special time in their lives.
Shari and her team did a fantastic job planning our wedding with us and allowed us to fully enjoy the weekend without any stress at all. After postponing our wedding a year from the original date, thanks to all the hard work Shari and her team did, we got the wedding of our absolute dreams that was well worth the wait. We would highly recommend their services to any couples looking to plan a wedding in the Pittsburgh area.
Shari was organized and made sure all of the boxes were checked. She managed multiple inputs from different people in order to ensure the best outcome for the wedding, and for what the bride and groom wanted. I was the type of person that wanted to participate in and be in the loop on all activities and communications during the planning, and Shari completely accommodated that. But she also took over decision-making, ensuring everything went well the week of the wedding when I started feeling decision-making/wedding exhaustion! She is wonderful at accommodating the needs of the couple. I trusted her completely with it, and the day turned out beautifully. Personally, she was a pleasure to spend time with during the planning activities. Her teammates joined us for the wedding weekend and were wonderful to have with us as well.
Shari is a complete professional and created a dream wedding for our daughter overseeing and organizing every aspect of the day to the minute. She communicates effectively on every level and plans for success so that the wedding day is enjoyed by the bride as well as her family.
