At the time of this review, there have been 19 other reviews and every single one of them gave Tracey 5 stars. I can see why. I don't ever write reviews but I thought Tracey was the best thing that happened to our wedding and if my review could somehow influence your buying decision, I know for a fact that you won't regret it.
At first I was a little bit apprehensive about a wedding planner. I thought my wife and I could do it all. I was so wrong. My wife and I were able to ENJOY our wedding because the execution of the wedding was almost entirely done by Tracey. We were bodies in her logistical masterplan. Everything was on time, set up, organized from days prior to the day after the wedding and if things went wrong, her and her assistant was always on top of it and made sure that my wife and I weren't stressed - this was her top priority.
Tracey takes the time to develop relationships with you and your significant other and she makes you feel important because she genuinely cares about YOUR vision. Tracey has a breadth of ideas backed by her experiences in different events. She comes prepared and ready to execute even in the most dynamic situations.
I know I am just a stranger to all of you in this review but just trust me on this one. On paper, Tracey is awesome and we all know that but no other planner I've seen at any other wedding has gone above and beyond for their clients. There may be cheaper planners out there but Tracey is hands down one of the best ones in the industry. 90% of my vendors knew her and was thrilled that she was our planner. She's THAT good!
Our entire wedding party of 12 loved Tracey and every one of them expressed interest in hiring her for their wedding if they were in the market for one. That's how amazing she is and the impression that she made on the wedding party and the wedding itself.
I, 100%, would recommend her to anybody looking for a wedding planner. You have nothing to lose by simply reaching out to her. You'll be amazed at what she can do for you on your big day!
Where do we begin?!
From beginning to end you have been such a saving grace for us! We can honestly say that we don’t know how we could have done it all without you!! We know we were extremely picky and specific about so many things along the way and you dealt with everything like such a champ and made us feel confident that everything was taken care of. That feeling alone leading up to a wedding is priceless. You impressed us beyond belief. Everything you did for us since our very first meeting did not go unnoticed and we continued to be blown away by you every step of the way. And we can’t forget your girls!! They were so on point all day long, it really was such a pleasure to have them with us that day. They are the sweetest, so professional, and so good at what they do! Every single one of our family members have commented on how phenomenal you and your team were on our wedding day and were SO impressed. We couldn’t even begin to tell them how much more you did for us leading up to the day. Yesterday we were watching a video of our first dance and looked at the time stamp which said 6:58pm...meaning we were 2 minutes ahead of schedule!! We’re amazed…When does that ever happen on a wedding day?? You are seriously such a Rockstar- who else can switch a photo location, get permits, organize the contract and payment, re-schedule the limos, and send out an email update to all vendors and bridal party within 2 hours the day before the wedding?!!!! ONLY YOU!!
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you, thank you, thank you!!
When my husband and I got engaged hiring Tracey as our planner was a no brainer. She had coordinated my brothers wedding the summer before and it was absolutely stunning. Right off the bat, Tracey ensured that she got to know me and my husband on a personal level; understanding our relationship helped her gain a better understanding of the vibe we wanted for our wedding. She was constantly suggesting new and fun ways that our relationship could be showcased at our wedding. Throughout the entire planning process Tracey was extremely attentive to detail while all the while ensuring that the process was stress free for us. She suggested countless new and fresh ideas that were beyond the current trends, resulting in a beautiful and unique wedding day. Not only was Tracey incredibly organized and creative throughout the planning process, her attention to detail was immaculate the day of the wedding. Her assistants and vendors were all a pleasure to work with that day. She ensured everything was taken care of resulting in a perfect, beautiful and stress free ceremony and reception. Tracey fully understood our vision and executed it perfectly. We continue to receive amazing feedback about the wedding. Tracey took the time to answer questions we had after the wedding and we had a wonderful dinner reviewing the details of that night. Through this process my husband and I feel as though Tracey has become a friend. We couldn’t be happier with how the entire process went and we would recommend Tracey to anyone looking for a wedding coordinator.
Tracey and her team are the absolute best! Our wedding would not have been the same without her. Her “month of coordination” is perfect for the couple who has their own vision but lacks the wedding planning experience. She held our hand, gave us great advice on timelines, and when the Big Day came allowed us to actually enjoy it! The event was spectacular and I can tell you, without a doubt, it would not have been that way without Tracey McAteer Events!
As most couples these days, my husband and I are crazy busy, and although we are both used to controlling and managing every detail in our lives we were able to trust Tracey and her team with everything and are happy to say they delivered beyond our expectations! Hiring Tracey McAteer is a game changer. Thank you to you and all of your fun and professional team!
I could tell you to hire a planner because it’ll save you time and money - it will in the long run, there is no doubt about that. But we hired Tracey over the rest because she didn’t treat us like “clients”, she didn’t approach us generically like the other 7 planners I reached out to. She actually approached us through a friend’s referral and offered real help, when we almost gave up. And throughout the whole 10 months we knew Tracey, we felt like we were her only clients. She got to know us, she understood how busy we are and where our focus was. And she threw us the party of the century. Beyond our expectations by far, and we felt like guests at our own 400 person wedding.
She was so d*mn good - I hired her to plan my shower too - which was equally as incredible!
Tracey is creative, organized, friendly, assertive when necessary (LOL sorry T, it’s a good thing), and generous with her time and energy. But what makes her special is that she truly became a friend- she makes the effort to remember the names of our 24 person bridal party, the kids, the parents, the aunts and uncles - they called her when they needed things, not my husband and I - which to us was so helpful.
T, I will miss watching you get excited over details like invitations, and table numbers...like a kid on Christmas morning! You’re the BEST. Thank you for your moral support, your talent, and above all, your friendship. I’ll call you for the baby shower! #britneyspearstoxic
If you've read this far - hire her now!
A company well worth looking into. Great organizational skills from start to finish.
Tracey is so fun and wonderful to work with!! She has such great energy and there is never a dull moment when she is in the room! She is so friendly and I was instantly comfortable with her during our very first conversation. She gives so much detail up front (which is key and so helpful when teaming up with her as another vendor). She really knows her stuff. Any couple would be in the best of hands with Tracey and her team!!
Tracey is the best! Such great attention to detail that pays off with great relationships with her clients and vendor partners! Always a pleasure working with her!
Tracey is an absolute pleasure to work alongside. Easy and efficient communication, and wonderfully executed events!
