I can not recommend Jodie enough for planning your nuptials. I chose Jodie because I wanted to do something creative and unique. I wanted something nontraditional with a more fun, sparkly-bubbly, seasonal (but not Christmasy) cocktail-casual atmosphere. When I explained the concept to Jodie she understood right away and had many ideas which amplified and elevated our theme. Some of her ideas include the tapas/food station idea to keep people snacking, moving and mingling, the beautiful lighting, unique floral designs, and decor to bring in sparkle without getting us covered in glitter. Every vendor we met with was so excited to work with us. We kept hearing "this is so different and new! Nobody/not many people are doing this. I love this idea!!" Everyone seemed very inspired for our event. Even my husband got into it. lol. I had been describing the "concept" to my guests and when they finally saw it I kept hearing "I totally get it, it's even better than I imagined." Many of these ideas were Jodie's. When I saw the final final look, I was floored. After our wedding my guests have been gushing over our event. They admired the decor design and felt it was romantic and elegant but also fun and modern. They loved the food (one of Jodie's picks) and the cocktail party concept over a sit down dinner. You know your wedding is a hit when people say things like "I didn't know weddings could be like this. You are making me regret my elopement." "Could you throw a wedding once a year, please?" Beyond her creativity and artistry, Jodie was well organized and always easy to get a hold of. I knew exactly what I needed to do and when. She helped set monthly goals which made planning a wedding seem more easily digestible. She always made me feel supported. She was kind, collaborative but politely assertive when necessary. I might have been a stress ball the weeks leading up to my wedding but the day of I was happy and care-free. I trusted Jodie and knew she had everything under control. If there were any issues, I would have never known about them. From quirky/modern to traditional, whatever your style, I know Jodie will give you the wedding of your dreams (and within your budget as well.) We loved everything at our wedding and we're still gushing about it. We didn't expect it to be perfect.

Working with aisle ready events was amazing. Jodie really knew what Eric and I were looking for for our ceremony and reception. She provided us with great ideas that we didn’t even think about. She turned our vision into a reality. Day of help for the wedding was so important to us and they allowed us to relax and not stress. Her and her team were quick with email responses which is definitely a plus. I would highly recommend them for your next wedding. I will miss working with them!

Where to begin? At the beginning. My wife is such a planner, and having a nearly 3 year engagement meant she had more than enough time to do so. She started things off with a bang, locking down the best reception venue and videographer, but she didn't know how long her luck would last. She searched for a wedding planner to help out, and lo and behold, Jodie was waiting in the wings. From the first time we met with her, we instantly knew how big of a help she would be. With her bright personality and go-get-it attitude, things fell into place with ease. She was especially helpful when we moved out of state -twice- before the big day. She was able to hold down the fort back in Indy, even while dealing with her own move. She was always available via email for me, and my wife had several Facetime/Skype conversations with her while we were out of state. By the time the wedding day came around, not a single worry crossed my mind. I was able to completely focus on what that day meant to me, and I know that would not have happened without all the planning and behind the scenes efforts made by Jodie. I would 100% recommend having her assist anyone with their wedding.

When my now-husband and I sat down and determined our priorities for our wedding, one thing we knew was important to us was that neither we, nor our families, were going to have to worry about a thing the day-of. Enter Jodie Stansbury and Aisle Ready Events! I found Jodie through a recommendation from a friend, and I just can't say enough good things about her and her company. I hired Jodie and her "month-of" coordination package, and what a blessing she was. From the moment we hired her, we were confident that our day would be perfect because Aisle Ready would make it so. At a little more than a month out, Jodie basically took control of communication to all my vendors and created our day-of timeline, making sure it got into the hands of the appropriate people. She asked me questions about things I hadn't even thought about, making sure we were prepared for every last little thing! She was present for a final walkthrough at our reception venue, as well as the rehearsal, and she was exactly where I needed her to be day-of. She made sure everything ran exceptionally smoothly and even went through the trouble of pinning my sorority badges onto my bouquet at the church. I'm sure she handled mini-crises behind the scenes day-of, but she made sure I didn't know anything about it. She even took my cake stand back to our bakery two days after our wedding so I didn't have to worry about it as my husband and I jetted off on our honeymoon. Aisle Ready Events is truly a dream to work with. They provided me (and my mom) with peace of mind, were willing to talk through any questions or concerns we had, and were always, always there to be helpful. Jodie made sure everything about our dream day was perfect, and I couldn't be more grateful. If you're still unsure if you need a day-of coordinator, you 100% do! And if you're unsure about who to hire, I highly recommend Aisle Ready Events!

We will never be able to thank Jodie and the team at Aisle Ready Events enough for making each detail of our wedding day special and unique. Jodie helped my husband and I with every aspect of the wedding planning process and kept us on track with upcoming items and decisions that needed to be made. We were so impressed with her eye for detail, organization skills and how quickly she would respond to an email or phone call. I would highly recommend Aisle Ready Events to any couple that is getting ready to plan one of the most important days of their lives. Jodie and her team are worth every penny. You have the comfort of knowing that you are working with a professional that truly understands the ins and outs of the planning process, rehearsal and day-of details forwards and backwards. Because of Jodie and the team at Aisle Ready Events, my husband and I were able to sit back and really enjoy our wedding day stress-free because we knew that Aisle Ready Events had it covered. You are the best!
