Lauren went so above and beyond in every way. I first contacted Lauren just a few months before my wedding (I originally thought I could do everything myself without a coordinator/planner - I was so wrong!!). Lauren was really flexible and worked it out so that she would start working with us two weeks out, which was perfect for us and hard to find with a lot of other event planning companies. Eve...More

Lauren went so above and beyond in every way. I first contacted Lauren just a few months before my wedding (I originally thought I could do everything myself without a coordinator/planner - I was so wrong!!). Lauren was really flexible and worked it out so that she would start working with us two weeks out, which was perfect for us and hard to find with a lot of other event planning companies. Even though she wasn't supposed to come on board until two weeks out, Lauren reached out several weeks before she officially started so that she could work on prepping materials for our wedding. What I learned from day one is that she is so dedicated to her couples and genuinely cares about them. Leading up to the wedding, I felt a huge weight off my shoulders because Lauren was clearly on top of everything and brought such a calm energy. Even though I had done a ton of research and was really detail oriented, Lauren asked questions/made suggestions that wouldn't have occurred to me. From start to finish, she put in so much effort to make sure every single detail was accounted for on the big day. Our wedding ran so smoothly and I attribute so much of that to Lauren. She is also incredibly kind and warm - it truly felt like having another friend at our wedding. Thank you so much, Lauren!!

Lauren planned a beautiful bridal shower. The entire process was stress free and the final party was beautiful. I would highly recommend Lauren Zizza Events.

Hiring Lauren as our wedding coordinator was one of the best decisions I made! She is super professional, organized, and overall- a joy to be around!

She made sure we stuck to our timeline, contacted our vendors in advance to iron out details, and made sure we had everything we needed for the big day. She has a great upbeat attitude and having her at our special day was a true necessity. She is very responsive to emails/phone calls/texts and always gives honest advice. Everyone needs to hire Lauren as their wedding planner! She truly is the best in the business! The day definitely would not have gone as smoothly as it did if it weren't for her. I recommend her wholeheartedly.

Hiring Lauren was one of the first decisions I made, and it ended up being the BEST decision. She was an absolute dream to work with - organized, enthusiastic, understanding and incredibly knowledgeable. She is so supportive and personable it truly felt like I was working with a friend. Outside of all the planning leading up to it, on the day of she was such a savior! She thought of EVERYTHING that I never would have, and did such an amazing job coordinating all of the moving parts across MANY vendors. The day was artfully planned down to the minute with some much needed slush time baked in so that I could just sit back and relax. Finally, outside of her robust industry expertise & planning skills, she was able to recommend some amazing vendors, shoutout to Lauren Fair Photography & Alexa Rae Makeup! In short, I cannot recommend her enough!

Lauren flawlessly planned not one, not two, but three separate versions of our wedding day! Planning a wedding during a pandemic isn't an easy thing, and due to COVID we had to make the decision to shift back our day several times. Lauren was there every step of the way and made moving around dates, vendors and timelines look easy. She seamlessly handled all the logistics which took a HUGE amount of stress off of me as the bride. One thing I loved about having her as a planner is that she is very detail oriented. She made us a very thorough timeline and checklist for the wedding day which helped us stay on schedule and ensured the entire day ran smoothly. On the day of, I had multiple family members tell me how impressed they were by how organized she was and how often she would come check on us in the bridal suite to make sure I was feeling calm and had everything I needed. I was a very nervous bride and having Lauren there as an experienced guide ensured that I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. She was such a reassuring presence and also has a great design eye (which I definitely lack) so it was great to have her throughout the planning process to get feedback and suggestions on florals, signage, etc. I honestly can't rave about her enough and would hire her again in the blink of the eye - she was the best decision we ever made for our wedding.

Lauren was super responsive and always triple-checking to make sure our needs and wants were being met. We wouldn't hesitate to work with her again. UPDATE: Lauren really is an AMAZING wedding planner! I cannot rave more about her - Three months after our wedding we were hit with a surprise bill and she totally stepped in and helped to get everything straightened out with the vendor.

Lauren was our day-of planner for our July 20th wedding - but she did so much more! She was a pleasure to work with, meticulous, organized, and focused. Throughout the day, we felt reassured that we were on schedule - and that we could just enjoy the party! - while she handled everything with a calm, professional demeanor. Especially in the week before, Lauren was a lifesaver! So many last minute changes came up, she was flexible and responsive. We needed a last minute dresser (to calm some bowtie-tying anxieties), and she referred us to someone in the area, in our budget, who exceeded our expectations. She quickly found answers to all of our questions. Although we were told a few times that we wouldn’t need a planner, it was a huge relief once Lauren came on board. My now-husband and I were working opposite hours up until very close to our date, and Lauren was able to close the loop, communicating with the venue and all vendors. She combed over the timeline and found so many details that we may have otherwise overlooked. We would recommend working with Lauren wholeheartedly! We absolutely were able to enjoy our day even more because she was there.

When it got closer to the wedding, she was proactive in coordinating with our vendors (without me asking) and provided great ideas and suggestions as we were finalizing the small details. She created a document with all the details for th e wedding and timeline. During the wedding day, she always checked in on me to make sure I had everything I needed and if I was ok. She made sure we were on or ahead of schedule and the day went so smoothly. She was so calm and dependable. She even helped bustle my dress and kept an eye on our personal belonging throughout the day / night. She was so professional and sharp and all our vendors were raving about how easy she was to work with. She went above and beyond. I am so grateful she was with us during our wedding day.

Words cannot describe how amazing Lauren has been throughout our wedding planning process! While I wish this review was post wedding - Unfortunately, due to the current health climate, my fiance and I had to cancel our destination wedding in Brooklyn this upcoming May. (We currently reside in/have been planning afar from Pittsburgh, PA). Thankfully , however, we have Lauren on our team. From the v ery beginning of the process, and up until now (as we work on navigating cancellation contracts with our vendors), Lauren has helped to relieve us of any added stress. She is extremely organized, attentive, and always one step ahead, Not to mention she would do anything for her soon-to-be brides and grooms! Whether I needed to chat wedding details, or to just vent, Lauren was always there. She is a woman who genuinely cares, and it shows in her work and customer service. Although our wedding plans have since changed, I have no doubt that Lauren would have delivered on the day of and gone the extra mile to make sure every single moment was special. If you want t true boss lady who always has your best interests at hear - Lauren is your girl.

I cannot even begin to explain how amazing it was to have Lauren for my wedding and during the wedding process! I am very detail oriented and always need to be in control and Lauren was able to alleviate any stress or concern I had for the day of and days leading up to the wedding. She is worth every penny and then some. You don’t realize how crucial it is to have someone like her by your side to make the day go by smoothly and without a hitch. Even if there was a minor hiccup, she remained super calm and always offered multiple options and solutions to the problem. I can go on and on but I will just say she was truly the backbone of our big day and it wouldn’t have been what it was without her!
