Lauren Hines has been a blessing to my wife and I. When we were married in 2014, Lauren coordinated the wedding for us. Sheila, my wife, was located in California, so a lot of the correspondence had to be done long distance. Lauren was very diligent, loving, and delightful in the process.
In the short term of period between when I proposed and the wedding, Lauren was quickly involved and helpful in this process. We did not know so much could get done in the time.
We would highly recommend her for anyone who needs her planning services.

It was a pleasure to work with Lauren and Tierra. I did not use a wedding planner for my first marriage (frankly, we were still in college and couldn’t afford it!) So I was skeptical at first. But they absolutely saved us time and effort. I also underestimated the importance of the planners on the day itself. There was no stress and uncertainty about who was handling what, and when things were supposed to happen. Having Lauren and Tierra behind the scenes making everything work smoothly allowed us to focus on and enjoy our special day. And it was very special! Everyone had a great time and I still have friends and family remark on our “perfect wedding.” Thank you guys so much for being there with us through the whole process.
One other comment: A lot of times Lauren and Tierra would ask for us to do certain things and, well, let’s just say we didn’t always get them done in a timely fashion! But the planners never made us feel guilty, or more stressed because of this. We would just regroup and move forward. Well worth it!

Lauren and Tierra were absolutely amazing. Unless you can think of a word better than amazing. We talked or met at least once a week to go over details and talk me off the ledge. Lauren and her team were always available. They helped us find the location, dress, tuxedo, flowers, vendors and pretty much everything wedding related. The only worry I had was that I had no worries. They were on top of everything. She has become like family... so much so she is also planning my sisters-in-law’s wedding. Highly recommend her!!! She made our day beautiful and completely worry free.

We can honestly say our wedding would not have been as wonderful, well planned or well budgeted without the amazing guidance of Lauren Hines from Get Wed for Less. Let’s face it, as expectant brides and grooms, we all have hope for the wedding of our dreams at reasonable prices. Lauren is an expert among Atlanta wedding vendors. She was able to recommend some of the best in the business, while negotiating awesome rates. She dealt with difficult situations with aplomb, unfazed by last minute occurrences that could have thrown an inexperienced wedding planner for a loop. We consider her a huge part of why our day was memorable and we are grateful for the months of work she did to make out dreams come true.

So hard to whittle down all I want to say into a few words!!! My husband and I wanted our daughter's wedding to adhere to our budget and be exactly what she wanted. After three months of planning, we realized that we needed help to achieve those lofty goals. Through some friends, we found Lauren. What a difference that has made!
Lauren outlined very clearly what her services entailed- from finding the most affordable vendors, to being available for vendor visits, to regular meetings with us etc etc. Lauren exceeded our expectations! She found wonderful vendors at the best prices available. The graphic designer for the invitations, photographer, videographer, florist, makeup artist, DJ, grooms attire, bridesmaids dresses, limousine service, site for the wedding favor boxes - all found by Lauren.
She also negotiated the best deal with the reception site and saved us several thousand on that as well! She did all this in a very professional, organized, and warm manner which is so characteristic of all her interactions! On the actual wedding day, Lauren and her team very unobtrusively ensured that everything ran smoothly, and that the reception site was absolutely beautiful. At the very end of the wedding, our daughter squeezed us tightly and said "Thank you for a beautiful wedding. It was exactly what I wanted!" As I reflected on the fact that our wedding was under budget and we had such a joy filled, wonderful time, I thought "Thank you God for all your many blessings! My next thought was "Thank You Lauren!"

Graduation Party Success!
Lauren you are truly an amazing professional! We knew you were good but you completely blew us away! Your ability to capture our lofty party plan and make it even better was astounding! The attention to detail helped us to enjoy every moment of celebrating our son’s graduation. He smiled the entire time, danced his heart out and couldn’t stop thanking us for the best party he’s ever been to including prom. That is priceless! We could not have done it without you!

We are so grateful for the opportunity to work with Lauren Hines for the Aisle Be Ready Pre-Marriage Conference. She possesses great skill and professionalism, and her organization skills and calming presence were very much appreciated. She was invaluable on the conference day as well, she worked with all the vendors, the set up was gorgeous, and she ensured everyone was having fun, eating and enjoying the day to the fullest. She has a gift for having her presence felt on the event day (things running smoothly, venue looking perfect, etc.) without being intrusive. We highly recommend Lauren and staff for their professionalism, kindness and excellent work ethic.

I had the pleasure of attending The Atlanta High Fashion Bridal Event last month and I have to tell you that Lauren Hines has once again proven that she is the Best of the Best in Event Planning. I've attended her events in the past and I always think how will she top this event, but she does every time. The pure elegance and class, she brings to her events are truly extraordinary. She never disappoints. Kudos to you, Lauren!
