Eric and I had the fortune to have Talida at Savour Weddings as our wedding coordinator for the six months leading up to our destination wedding in Texas. Through the entire planning process Talida was with us every step of the way, providing logistical and design input on our ideas as well as filling in the gaps for anything we may have overlooked in our excitement. Readily available whenever I needed, Talida was there to provide me honest feedback on the various visions I had for each space my guests would experience throughout the rehearsal dinner and wedding day, built out a Pinterest vision board with me, and shopped alongside me to maximize our budget without impacting what we wanted to achieve. Leading up to the wedding, particularly with our travel, no one was more organized than Talida in knowing the travel logistics for us and our guests, shipping all our supplies onsite, and coordinating with all our vendors remotely. Wedding day execution was also flawless, and I felt like I could relax and just focus on having fun and getting dressed (it's easier for the men, but Eric felt the same!). All in all, while there's always a few things brides wish they could change about their wedding day afterwards, having Talida as our wedding coordinator is something I would do over again in a heartbeat!

Talida of Savour Weddings is seriously Wonder Woman!
I am generally a Type A, checklist/spreadsheets gal with a healthy dose of anxiety. Throw in wedding planning with in-laws who don't speak the same language was a huge challenge and Talida totally stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. By my wedding day my hair and make-up artist remarked that I was the calmest bride ever. I credit this to the trust I have in Talida because her planning and attention to detail is pretty much flawless. What's even better is how she anticipates any issues that may crop up along the way and has just the right back-up plan or solution to keep everything moving along smoothly. It allowed my husband and I to be 100% present during our wedding day to enjoy every moment with our friends and family.
Talida has a very calming personality that is also at the same time your very best advocate when managing strong personalities and differing opinions. She is not afraid to have firm conversations and stand in your corner when handling a myriad of family questions, expectations, and requests that come with a wedding. She was also encouraging during our email and phone check-ins, helping me stay on track and chip away at the "wedding to do list" and was always helpful with resources and advice to make sure I was able to stick to our timeline and wedding budget. Talida is a consummate professional and even my officiant remarked that she was one of the best he's seen in the many he has officiated. I wholeheartedly recommend Talida of Savour Weddings for wedding planning and day of coordination!

Talida offers very personalized wedding planning services and develops a package tailored to what you as a bride (or groom) are looking for help with. She is professional, experienced, and most importantly she is very calm!
When I got engaged, I didn't think I needed a wedding planner because I'm very organized and I thought I could manage everything myself. I did all my own research on venues, vendors, DIY centerpieces, etc. And created a detailed wedding day schedule for the entire wedding party. However, as the wedding got closer, I realized a few things: I had a lot of little questions that I didn't know who to ask, I didn't want to worry about things slipping through the cracks leading up to the big day, and I didn't want to be stressed the day of trying to make sure everything was going smoothly while I did my own bride stuff. I knew Talida (a friend of mine) could help with all this but I was concerned that I had already done so much on my own that hiring her wouldn't be "worth" the money, but she met with me to review everything that was done vs. Still outstanding and then proposed a customized plan for how she could assist me. The package was perfect and the price was right so I hired her, and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I made for my wedding!
Talida is very experienced and knowledgeable about all things related to weddings; what she doesn't know, she will research and follow up with you on. She is very organized, responsive, and was flexible to my schedule. Talida created a thorough master wedding schedule that incorporated the one I created plus everything else I hadn't accounted for. The week of the wedding, I was in close touch with her and she came with me to meet with my venue manager and led practices at my rehearsal dinner. The day of, I was able to focus on having fun with my friends and family because I knew Talida was taking care of everything behind the scenes, and I'm happy to say that the wedding was amazing!

I don't know where to begin to talk about how thankful my wife and I are to have hiredTalida as our wedding planner. My wife is currently a student, and I travel for work, so she and I barely had time to talk about our wedding together. Talida came in and was professional from the get-go. She came up with priorities of tasks for us to follow. There were many times we fell behind schedule, but she would always be very optimistic, encouraging, and reassuring. As we got closer to the wedding, Talida took many tasks upon herself and really went above and beyond to meet with us multiple times at our venue / over conference calls, and really helped us figure out where she could help us the most.
What we like most about Talida is that not only is she very professional / organized, she really makes the effort to get to know the couple. She does not carry herself as an "all business" type of wedding planner, but more of a friend - someone you can trust to make honest recommendations. We really appreciated that about Talida!
Our wedding came close to being a disaster with all the last minute tasks, but Talida was able to go above and beyond to tie up those loose ends for us and save our wedding. Safe to say that the overall experience was extremely positive, and it was one of the best decisions my wife and I made to hire her. I definitely recommend that you look into hiring her if you are reading this!

We can't say enough about how amazing Talida is! We are so grateful for Talida's help with venue & vendor selection, wedding planning and day-of-coordination. She has an intimate knowledge of everything you need to get married in New York and she spent time really getting a sense of what we wanted for our wedding. We used her recommendations for so many of our vendors and they were all excellent.
Talida is SUPER organized and her optimism that we could get it done was incredibly helpful as we finalized all of the details in the weeks before our wedding. Talida jumped in at the last minute to get our programs printed and put us and our families at ease with detailed checklists and schedules. Because Talida over-communicated the details, we and our families were able to just relax during our wedding weekend and knew that everything would be taken care of as planned.

Talida is perfect and exceptional at this! She is not only a friend but an amazing coordinator- you can tell she has had event planning experience before. She is extremely efficient and reminds you of nooks and crannies to consider- but never forces you to get everything- you choose what you want and she finds it and executes with you! Her resources and skills are amazing and are so worth investing in to save yourself a giant headache and stress. Her persona is friendly and calm which helps both the bride and groom think through things and also to help manage the stress. Make sure you look into her services!

Talida was instrumental in getting us from the start of planning our wedding through the day itself! We would highly recommend that you snap up Talida right after your engagement and work with her on planning your wedding.
She is very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and commercially minded. She connected us to great vendors (flowers, printing, photography, video, music, etc. ) and provided insightful market knowledge on logistics, process and pricing. Talida also coordinated directly with our other vendors with respect to day-of actions and helped shepherd the bridal party and groomsmen as we had a full day of wedding-related activities. In addition, guided us through the process of obtaining a marriage license and coordinating with our officiant (a close friend) to submit the requisite paperwork.
Talida, thank you so much for everything you did for us. We are very lucky that we got you as our wedding planner!
