What can you say about JoJo, Dana, Dominique and team that does them justice? We absolutely love these ladies and could not have had the peace of mind we did on our wedding day had we not hired them. ... Read more These wonderful ladies know their stuff and are prepared for every situation and do not let one detail go undone. The moment we met them, we were instantly comfortable with them and felt like they got our concerns and could help us pull together all the detail that we had planned on our own. They are all wonderful in their own way. JoJo is the planner extraordinaire who has more colorful sunglasses than anyone I know. Dana is Ms. Timeline and gets it organized and done. Dominique is a creative gem. She designed our invitation and program...and Thank You cards. They went beyond the "day of" services and helped us take care of so many of the little things so we would not have to worry about them. We love these ladies and consider them our friends. Party and Be Married will care for every detail of your day so you can relax and let go.

Hiring Dana and Joanne was one of the best decisions we made. We knew from the start we needed to hire a coordinator. Our wedding was at a community center, and several of our key vendors had not done ... Read more a wedding before. Our caterer had never done a large scale event before. Dana was able to seamlessly coordinate the many moving pieces together. If there were any problems on the day of, I was unaware of them. She took care of everything the month before the wedding. Instead of being a ball of stress trying to coordinate everything, my husband and I went into the wedding relaxed. They had great vendor recommendations for us. For appetizers, we were looking for something really basic and simples - chips, dips, veggies, etc. I was getting quotes for $1000. I was getting ready to suck it up and just go to Costco the day before, but Joann recommended a personal chef who could do it for less than half. This chef also was able to make a vegan gluten-free lasagna that everyone raved about. Her bridal emergency kit was a huge hit! The steamer was in high demand while getting ready and the eyelash glue was a life saver. I never would have thought to include eyelash glue, but half way through the reception I needed it! I really liked that Dana wanted to hear what kind of wedding we were having before giving us a quote. Someone who is having a wedding at an all-inclusive venue is going to have significantly less coordinating needs than mine. This way there were no surprises about the level of help we needed.

We had TWO weddings. Elderly family could not travel to L.A. For the BIG wedding; so we held a second tiny wedding/reception our of state. Dana & Joann ("Party & Be Married") helped us plan & execute ... Read more
the first but there was no one for the second and WOW did we learn so much by seeing the difference. -- GET THE PLANNING & COORDINATION HELP!! Worth every penny!
We saw so many little things show up for just a tiny reception; creating difficulty and noise. All of that was fully taken care of and invisible at our BIG reception, thanks to Dana & Joann.
We met several coordinator/planners; we asked, "what would you do if XYZ happened?" We found 3 types of answers:
1) "Yeah,... I'm not paid to solve problems, just facilitate the schedule,... "
