The BEST decision we made when planning our wedding was hiring Rebecca of RMP. I don't want to get cheesy or dramatic here, but I tear up when I think about how amazing she made our day and the weeks leading up to it. If you read nothing else from this review, read this: HIRE REBECCA.
My husband and I did a more-or-less DIY wedding and made efforts to keep costs low for our daytime, all-in-one venue brunch wedding. However, in the month before the wedding, we realized how difficult it was going to be to execute our ideas with just the catering team and ourselves. With less than a month left before our wedding, we began contacting day-of coordinators and spoke with a few in email and phone before deciding that Rebecca was 'the one.' She was by far the most professional and prepared one we spoke to, with a proposal of how she would be able to join the team so late and make it happen.
In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Rebecca solved so many problems we didn't even know we had. Turns out, you should really read those contracts! She went to bat for us on a few things that we had in contracts with vendors when they tried to change things. There were several problems that we didn't know we had simply because wedding planning isn't our full time job. The week before the date, she offered to relieve us of the vendor communication so we could (try to) relax and enjoy the days leading up to the event--I couldn't have thanked her more for that. It was non-stop wedding for so long that detaching right at the end was exactly what I needed.
Rebecca used a wedding planning website for all communication, which made it so easy to track where we were in the planning process, coordinate with the vendors, design layouts, make lists for things like specific pictures we wanted to photographer to get, etc. She was so organized!
The day of the wedding, Rebecca was our everything. She decorated our tables, arranged the ceremony materials, coordinated with all the vendors, and directed guests, and us, through the whole event. Things you don't think about, like where you go after you exit the ceremony or when to tell the DJ that we're ready to enter the reception--she thought of it and directed us and worked with the whole team. Rebecca did it all seamlessly. If there were problems, I didn't know about them. She made sure that we just enjoyed the day without a concern.
I wish we had had the foresight to hire her from the start because the month leading up to the event would have been so much less stressful--she would have seen these problems and solved them many months before. But, if you are reading this last minute, get her for day-of coordination! She does so much more than just day-of work. If you are reading this months out, hire her. Hire Rebecca.
Rebecca is such a pleasure to work with! She is organized, extremely detailed, and always has the client's best interest in mind. As someone who works for a catering company, I can say that she took the time to review all of the crucial details with us and the other vendors to make sure we were all on the same page. She is so sweet and I would recommend her to any of my future couples!

The Bride really appreciated Rebecca and spoke very highly of her while I was doing her makeup! She said hiring RMP Chicago Events was the best decision she made.
Rebecca is AMAZING!! I was 24 days out from my event when Rebecca was brought to my attention. I had no intention of hiring a wedding planner, as my day had already been largely planned. But I could not be happier that we hired her! She was my go-to with all questions and was a wealth of knowledge. She saw logistical holes in my planning that I had not even thought of. She was ready for any issue on the day of, including my dressing ripping. She is incredibly easy to talk to, diligent, detail-oriented, and very easily accessible. She was available at all hours of the day, even in the early hours of the morning by phone and email. She is incredibly professional and clearly an advocate of the client. She ensured that whatever I wanted or needed, I had available. I feel so lucky to have found a wedding planner like Rebecca. Highly recommend to anyone!!
RMP Chicago Events, Rebecca....what a fantastic person to work with. She kept the day efficient and stressless and isn't that what every bride needs on her wedding day!! We would highly recommend Rebecca and her services
Rebecca, Olive Fine Weddings & Events’ assistant was fantastic, my husband said she was great and easy to work with! During dinner my husband and I really wanted a cocktail instead of wine so went to get one and she stopped us in our tracks to see what we needed and went to get our drinks for us so we could mingle with our guests.
Rebecca sorted any issues out quickly and everything
We would definitely work with them again and would happily recommend to anyone in need! Thanks so much Olivia and Rebecca!!!!

Rebecca was great to work with! I was brought on board to DJ a wedding at Loft Lucia, and she was so on top of every detail. Every vendor's #1 priority should be to make the couple comfortable with everything. That includes communication, timeliness, organization and working with the entire team. Rebecca really nails all of these traits! We made a great team that day and she really helped me out with executing my job as the DJ. Looking forward to working with her again!
Rebecca is a pleasure to work with!! Her attention to detail is just amazing! Rebecca is great at following up and we love how she values time! We recommend Rebecca to all the couples and look forward to working with RMP Events even more!
