Destination wedding in Budapest

“We wholeheartedly recommend Nora for anyone who is trying to plan a wedding in Budapest. She’s professional, prompt in replying, speaks excellent English (which we found to be a challenge with some other planners we talked to), able to think on her feet to manage last minute challenges, and truly cares about making the day amazing for the couple.

My wife and I met in Budapest, so we really wanted to go back there to have our wedding, however, we faced the daunting task of trying to plan a wedding from thousands of miles away (we live in Hong Kong). Thank god we found Nora. She did such an amazing job helping us pull together the exact wedding we were hoping for. From the first time we dealt with her, she was comprehensive and professional, submitting several different proposals for us to choose from with varied pricing.

When we traveled to Budapest to plan the wedding, she set up all the meetings with venues, caterers, MCs, cake tasting, etc. and helped guide us through the whole process, taking an enormous strain off us. For each vendor she would typically provide us several choices to choose from with pros/cons of each, and was always open to our feedback while gently pushing back if she thought a different direction would lead to a better event for us. She also helped manage the budget for the wedding, and was willing to Skype with us several times to talk through schedules, planning, etc.

The day of the wedding, she helped manage paying all the different vendors, arranging shuttle pick-ups for guests, and ensuring all the vendors arrived on time / set-up the venues as instructed. She took care of all the little things like special dietary requests, delivering gift baskets, etc. so that my fiance and I were free to focus on more important items (like the vows! 🙂 and really enjoy the day. She even stayed until the party ended at 4:00AM (!!!) to ensure everything was packed up and everyone got home ok.”

 “I am from the states and my now husband is from Pecs, Hungary. I love Hungary and knew it could offer me everything I ever wanted in my dream wedding. However, I did not speak Hungarian and my husband was very busy with work and could not really help with the wedding planning. That is when I found Nora. She is absolutely the best. All I did was tell her what I was looking for and she brought me 3 to 4 options in each category (examples: DJ, MC, Photographers) and she gave me all their prices and let me choose who I liked the most. It was as easy as that. She also help to coordinate getting 30 Americans to the wedding. She helped with shuttle transfers and making sure all their needs were met while they were there so I did not need to be bothered with anything other than just enjoying my wedding day. The day of the wedding, I just focused on myself and family and she took care of the rest. Everyone was shocked how relaxed I was during the entire wedding process. My wedding would have not been the same without Nora. Whatever you want or need–she can do. I would recommend her to anyone looking to have a wedding in Hungary.!”

“Dear Nori,
When we chose you as our wedding planner, the main reasons were your responsiveness and transparency in explaining your service and what should be our expectations. But throughout the process of planning our wedding, we came to realize that we picked a true professional with many more great assets. Your amazing network of talented people, your way of offering your honest opinion without pushing us to agree with you, your effort to accommodate our requests, your calmness in every moment and finally the amazing work you did on the wedding day. We still can’t believe you could get another bouquet done when 10min before the ceremony we realized we forgot the right bouquet in the hotel!
A big thank you from us!!!!”

“Nora is fantastic. She is polite, professional, reliable and thoughtful. In the lead up to the wedding, nothing was too much trouble. She listened to all our requests and questions and was always quick to come back with advice and options for us to consider. She has connections with every possible supplier that you could need, all of which have been tried and tested by her which means you have the reassurance of knowing that they will provide a quality service. On the wedding day itself, Nora provided a seamless service and ensured that everything ran to time. She took charge of all the practical logistics, which meant that we could focus on just enjoying our special day. Nora was also courteous to our guests and was with us from the beginning right to the very end of our day. She truly provided a superb all round experience. Her considerate and friendly nature really contributed to our enjoyment of planning the wedding and the memories we took from the day itself. Thank you.”

 “Thank you for the amazing job you did planning our wedding and the accompanying weeklong festivities for our guests!  Our guests have told us over and over again that it was the best wedding they have ever attended! You went above and beyond for us — finding a selection of amazing vendors, accompanying us (and driving us!) to appointments when we visited Hungary, and making multiple visits to Köszeg to check out venues and meet with all the key people and sending us all the photographs we needed to make decisions remotely! We simply could not have planned the wedding without you.  You took care of everything — transportation to and from our various guest activities, like the spa and golf; putting together guest bags for the guest’s hotel rooms; finding traditional Hungarian dancers to perform at the reception and so much more.  Thanks to you all the details — the place cards, the programs, the silver candelabras, the rose petals thrown as we exited the church, and the sparkler on the cake — were all perfect!  And you found ways to fix all our sticky problems! No salon could handle all taking care of all the bridesmaids at once? No problem! You found manicurists to come to us!

We want to especially thank you for finding a way to have the wedding of our dreams within our budget.  You helped us make smart choices that saved us money, while still getting  us the results we were looking for.  We particularly remember how you helped us choose certain local vendors and how you worked with them so that we got top notch results without having the cost of importing cakes and flowers from the city.

We could go on and on about how you made our wedding amazing, and we would recommend you (at length!) to anyone!”

 “We planned our wedding in Hungary from the US. We found Nora through Facebook and Google searches. What an outstanding decision we made to have Nora help us.
 We was truly wonderful. She was always eager to meet with us virtually via Skype. We kindly explained our plans, provided her expertise and opinion, and coordinated our needs with our resources at hand. If you’re planning wedding from overseas like we did, the ease of communication and clarity of communication are essential. Nora excelled beyond expectations in these categories.
Nora genuinely cares about every detail, and, boy, we had a lot of them! Yet, Nora was patient, caring, and enthusiastic.
Once we arrived on site, Nora met with us almost daily walking through every aspect of the reception, wedding, and photography sessions. Despite small hiccups you would find in every wedding, Nora, like an experienced professional, gracefully handled the situation, and we got to enjoy a blessed wedding thanks in part to her true efforts.
If you’re deciding between multiple coordinators, we strongly recommend Nora and her colleagues!”
