I began planning my wedding in Portland only a year after moving there, and I was at a complete loss for where to begin. Your Perfect Bridesmaid, and specifically Katelyn Evans, helped make my day everything I could have imagined and more. Without Katelyn, I wouldn't have found the right venue, the right florist, the right makeup artist and have them all booked within budget. On our wedding night, she even drove my husband and I back to our hotel with all of our gifts, and ensured the leftovers made it to our room. Before I began my wedding planning process, I was convinced I did not need to spend the money on a planner, but I now believe that no matter how big or small the event, you need the YPB team by your side!

Your Perfect Bridesmaid made planning and organizing our son's wedding a breeze. Rachael Meader was awesome! Her experience and suggestions provided guidance in what they desired for their wedding and then provided suggestions of vendors who could help achieve it. On their wedding day, she was visible coordinating, directing, organizing, synchronizing and removing any stress and chaos. Hiring a wedding planner, especially like Rachael, is the key to making a wedding day the best ever. More...

If you want a stress-free wedding then Your Perfect Bridesmaid is the answer. Racheal Meader was knowledgable, capable and an exceptional asset in helping make our son's wedding memorable. Her guidance was instrumental in eliminating the stress that goes along with decisions, planning, vendors, and venues. Hiring a wedding planner was the best decision we made and getting paired up with Rachel was just icing on the wedding cake. More...

We really enjoyed working with Ashley to plan our big day. She is patient and detail-oriented, responded quickly to questions we had throughout the planning process, and most importantly made our wedding day stress-free. We had our wedding and reception at different venues and she expertly handled the logistics of decoration and clean-up at both locations. She stuck with us until the very end of the night helping load gifts and decorations into our vehicle (when we were both exhausted). We can't say enough about how much she helped us with every last detail including budget and vendor recommendations. More...

Hiring Rachael Meader from Your Perfect Bridesmaid was the best thing we did when planning our son's wedding. Working on short notice, we found Rachael who helped us organize and plan everything we needed to make the day memorable and perfect. Rachael kept us organized, on schedule, and free of stress as the event grew near. The day of the wedding, she took control of questions, directed vendors, helped with decorations, cued music, corralled guests, kept wedding events on time and if that wasn't enough, at the end of the night loaded up the our car with personal belongings and items. Using a wedding planner is worth every penny - for the expertise and knowledge and for the ability to relax and enjoy the day while someone else takes care of stressful stuff. Your Perfect Bridesmaid was everything we hoped and Rachael Meader a godsend. More...

I cannot begin to fully explain how great it was to have Kim help us with our wedding planning. From our first phone call, it was obvious how helpful having Kim and YPB would be in the process of planning our wedding. Their knowledge of venues and vendors were so helpful in making sure we got high quality service that we could depend on for every aspect of our wedding. Kim took the time to understand our envisions for our wedding and was able to tailor vendors to fit with our budget, location, and aesthetic wishes. Knowing that the vendors we chose were ones that Kim and YPB have worked with before gave us an ease of mind to know that their services were legit and we could count on them.

I also cannot stress how amazing it was to have Kim and Rachael there for day-of coordination. Knowing that our families didn't have to bare any of the stress that often comes with setting up decorations and coordinating vendors was worth its weight in gold. Knowing that we had two great professionals coordinating set up and the event allowed us and our families to enjoy our wedding day! It was honestly one of the best decisions we made to hire them and have them help us for our special day!

I can't recommend Your Perfect Bridesmaid enough! I have the pleasure of working with Kim and her team several times a year as a wedding photographer. What makes this team stand out is their ability to be both very organized and have exceptional attention to detail, while also posessing a very calming presence on the wedding day. Our mutual couple's consistently sing their praises. I highly recommend Your Perfect Bridesmaid! More...

Not only did Katelyn work hard to help put together the wedding of our dreams, but my husband and I could sense her genuine heart and she truly wanted us to enjoy the whole process and we believe YPB went above and beyond in their service. My only regret is that we did not hire them sooner on in the process! Thank you for everything YPB. I will definitely be referring you to any one I know!! More...

We used Your Perfect Bridesmaid for our wedding in Sept 2019. Kim was by our side throughout the entire wedding process. I can't say enough about how she went above her job and went far beyond the package that we chose. Kim's ability to make sense of our chaotic vision and turn it into a reality was amazing to see happen. She was always available WHENEVER I needed her and made the entire process less stressful. This review truly can't describe how thankful we are to Kim and her team. She helped make our wedding day the best day of our lives. When my husband forgot deodorant the day of the wedding, she gave him her own without a thought. YPB also has a great team of local vendors but I never felt that we were pushed to work with anyone; Kim was supportive and I always felt like she had our best interests in mind. Now that we are done with the wedding, it feels like a breakup and I am sad to no longer get to work with such a badass lady boss. Cheers to the next couple that is lucky enough to work with her!

We had an AMAZING experience with Your Perfect Bridesmaid as a company, and specifically with Katelyn, as our lead coordinator. Katelyn was simply incredible, and I'm not sure how we would have planned a wedding without her. Firstly, she is professional. She has an incredible knowledge of vendors, helped us with budget, timeline, and her day of coordination meant we had nothing to stress about on our big day. In addition to her incredible knowledge and skill, she is such a warm and kind person, and it was a joy working with her on a personal level.

We were hesitant at first to hire a day of planner. However, as the wedding got larger, we saw the potential value of a planner to make the day more freeing for us. YPB was not our first choice, but in retrospect it should have been. Initially, we thought an "independent" planner could be more personable. However, Erika was very personable. More importantly she was experienced which means two very important things: 1. YPB is extremely organized. Erika was systematic in how she met with us, recorded information and communicated back to us and our vendors. They clearly have a well- dialed system for this 2. YPB had experience with the venue. While a very smart person could have figured things out on the fly, so much of wedding planning requires decisions that are venue and wedding specific--a wedding planner that has been there before makes a huge difference. We were able to trust Erika's judgement on many of the decisions related to our wedding. In the end, we thought they were worth every penny in terms of helping us enjoy the big day (and not fret details). I would highly recommend YPB. More...

I cannot recommend Your Perfect Bridesmaid enough. It was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! We had Ashley as our wedding planner, and Rachel as our back up day-of coordinator. Through the planning process, Ashley was incredibly helpful. She provided us with a variety of vendor ideas and gave us honest opinions regarding those vendors. We would never have found those vendors without her help. She gave us guidance on how to reach out and what questions we should ask those vendors. She also was in contact with our vendors behind the scenes to work out any kinks with them. Ashley was responsive to our emails and was great about answering any of our hundreds of questions. When our wedding day arrived, we were so calm knowing that Ashley was helping us! We had one major vendor issue during the wedding – our shuttle bus didn’t show up, so some of our guests were late and we had to start the wedding a bit late. Ashley was great about making sure my husband and I were calm and I knew she could take care of it. At the end of the night, Ashley and Rachel went above and beyond our expectations. They personally drove some of our guests home since we didn’t have a shuttle bus (and our venue had no cell reception). She even had one of her friends who had a small shuttle take some of our guest’s home. They stayed much later than they were planning on and they still acted so kind and professional to everyone. We couldn’t believe how amazing they handled it. Seriously, Your Perfect Bridesmaid is the best! More...

I literally had my dream wedding this July and that was largely due to the fact that Kim and Katelyn at Your Perfect Bridesmaid are SO GOOD AT THEIR JOBS. I've been a wedding photographer for 10 years and I've worked with these two as a vendor before, but THIS TIME I got to be the bride! Our wedding was logistically challenging, far away, and at a brand new venue, but YPB helped with every step of the process and kept my now-husband and I sane through everything. I ended up recommending them to my little sister AND my bff who got married a month later too. I will sing YBP praises til the end of time because they are such kind-hearted people with amazing talents. They are SO dedicated and work SO hard behind the scenes to make everything go flawlessly. I could not have imagined our wedding any different and it was literally better than I could have ever imagined, and hands-down the happiest day of my life. I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend these talented, amazing humans. They will help you when you need it most and make your wedding exactly what you want (or better!!). More...

This was absolutely the best investment we made in our wedding! YPB was professional, personable, responsive, and truly indispensable to us. We had a small backyard wedding which seemed manageable at first but soon we became overwhelmed with details. As soon as we hired Kim and her team they went to work for us. Our lead coordinator Nicole was the best! Any time I had a question or needed a referral she was on it and advocating for us with every vendor and or service we contracted. When we could not find a baker Kim personally called someone who was "booked" for six weddings on our wedding weekend and suddenly they were available! We didn't have a florist and Nicole referred me to the best florist I could have ever hoped or dreamed we could hire! Because of Nicole we were able to actually enjoy our wedding day and everything was taken care of and went smoothly. I feel they really listened to what our vision was for our wedding day and they made it happen. The day was perfect, the reception venue looked just like I envisioned.

I really cannot emphasize enough how incredibly invaluable our planner, Ashley, was to our entire wedding planning/day-of experience.

One piece of advice I received from countless brides throughout our engagement was to hire a planner. Everyone insisted a planner would not only make the planning go more smoothly, but also ensure I was able to enjoy my wedding day so much more. As a professional corporate event planner, I was prepared to take on all wedding planner duties myself. I love the planning process and generally know what to expect as far as timelines, vendor agreements, costs and day-of activities. However, as the wedding day drew closer, the logic behind my friends' advice became more and more clear. While I had most of the details securely in order, I was still lacking a point person to make sure everything was executed according to plan. I needed a day-of manager who would take on all the responsibilities and attention to detail I knew I would not be physically capable of handling the day of the ceremony and reception.

That's where Your Perfect Bridesmaid came in. I reached out to the team at YPB about three weeks before our big day. Their owner Kim and I chatted about what I had already accomplished, what my vision was and where I was feeling the most anxiety. We agreed that their "Sanity Saver" package was right for us, and everything quickly took off from there! I was immediately connected with my planner, Ashley, and from that day forward, Ashley and I didn't go a single day without connecting. Taking what I had already put together, she compiled a detailed "run of show" plan. She asked all the right questions, added to what I had in the works, and pointed out many details I had not even considered. She was in contact with all of my vendors to ensure everyone was up-to-speed and always made time to check in with me to make sure I was feeling okay and enjoying this special time in my life.

I cannot express how relieved I was before and especially the day of the wedding to have Ashley on my side. She works with confidence in her abilities, and does it all with a smile on her face. All of my details were put into play thanks to her, and the day was absolutely beautiful! Most importantly, my now-husband and I were able to actually enjoy our wedding because of her!

From start to finish, YPB was there for me and my husband. We are still talking about how grateful we are that we made the last-minute decision to hire a day-of planner/manager. Of all the money we spent on our wedding, hiring Ashley through YPB was by far one of the costs we have no regrets about. Trust me - a planner/manager is worth every penny! I am so relieved I took my friends' advice, and I will continue to spread that advice to my future bride friends. If you're looking for any level of wedding planning/management support, I cannot recommend YPB enough!

I called numerous wedding coordinators and spoke to the owners on the phone before I picked YPB. Kim is a magnificent owner and person, she is very down to earth and has a treasure chest full of knowledge.
Our lead coordinator was Ashley she learned our personalities quickly and helped us pick things that we never dreamed of having to choose. We valued their professional opinions and transparency when it came to pricing/ discounts with vendors. We had a really hard time with a local catering company that could have derailed our wedding day. Ashley and Kim worked tirelessly to fix the problem with the caterers in the most inventive and cost effective way.

We are a same sex female couple of color and no one batted an eye. These ladies treated us like family and turned my design vision into a reality without pushing the budget. If you are on the fence about choosing YPB do it! We did the 75% planning which worked so well for us, because we didn’t mind doing some leg work we just needed guidance and homework. These ladies are wonderful genuine people who love what they do.

She's there for YOU. She made our wedding day completely seamless for myself (and my mom!) and we didn't have to worry about one thing besides having the best time. I'd hire Ashley 10 times over, again and again. We can't thank you enough! More...

I could go on endlessly about the absolutely incredible experience I had with YPB for my June 1 Castaway Portland wedding, but I am going to try my best to stick with what you need to know. I had the absolute pleasure of working with Katelyn and her assistant Tammy. If you are on the fence about hiring a coordinator or wedding planner I urge you to do so. I was able to enjoy my day as a bride because I knew that Katelyn and her team had everything covered. If something went wrong, I have no knowledge of it. As a bride, you put in lots of planning and stress you really owe it to yourself to be able to enjoy this memorable experience. Katelyn was a recourse and advocate for me through the whole process. She is knowledgeable about the industry and about weddings in general. You may think that you can save money by doing certain things, but YPB really knows how to help you plan for things you don’t expect which helps you to achieve the wedding you want that sticks to your budget. I spoke with several different planners and coordinators and was disappointed that like many areas in the wedding business, I was being ripped off. This was not the case with YPB. They are personable, professional, kind, honest, humble and above all truly passionate about their work. I am sad to no longer be working with them, but so thankful they helped bring me my happily ever after. I highly recommend YPB. It was the greatest investment in my event and I had an unforgettable wedding thanks to their hard work and help. This should absolutely be your first stop in wedding planning. They are worth it and so are you. More...

Honestly would not have been able to have my dream wedding without Racheal and Kim. On the wedding day Racheal went above and beyond picking up our ice cream sandwiches, cutting the cake, she was amazing. I didn’t have to worry about anything. She was available when ever I needed her throughout the wedding planning. I am truly so grateful for her and her team, the wedding day was stress free and I got to enjoy the day. Love them all!

Kim, the owner of “Your Perfect Bridesmaid” was the wedding coordinator for my wedding at Timberline Lodge (Silcox Hut). From the first email she was quick to respond, professional, personable, and organized. She was in constant contact and willing to help with anything the year leading up to my wedding. My meetings with her were organized and efficient and her “little pink book” vendor recommendations were great! My wedding vision became reality when she decorated my venue. She took care of everything the day of so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Kim and her wonderful assistant cleaned and packed up everything after the reception and even dropped off the decor to my room before I arrived so that no one had to worry about it that evening! My experience with “Your Perfect Bridesmaid” was amazing! More...

The best decision I made during wedding planning was hiring Your Perfect Bridesmaid. Katelyn was a true life saver. She played every role we needed her to play, always going above and beyond our expectations. There was no question or tricky family situation that she couldn't help with. Planning a wedding from across the country was no joke, but Katelyn was there every step of the way and advocating on our behalf. I really did believe that she had our best interest at heart the whole time. YPB has great resources, vendor connections, and an excellent team. If you're thinking of hiring a planner, YPB is the way to go. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you, Katelyn and YPB! We couldn't have done this without you. More...
