Love From Our Clients
"I can't say enough good things about using Shannon as our wedding planner! She did such an excellent job at making sure all the details were taken care of and made the day so special for us! All of our guests complimented us on how beautiful and amazing the wedding was. I would definitely recommend Shannon to anyone who needs a wedding planner!"
-Katherine, 2017 Bride
"Our wedding day was absolutely perfect because of Shannon and the Bespoken Team! But it didn't just start on the wedding day, she made wedding planning a blast every step of the way! From being an ear to listen, giving words of encouragement and having sweetest personality, I would recommend her to any bride and would choose her 10,000 times again! The day went flawlessly. We stayed on schedule and no detail went unnoticed. Newly engaged brides-to-be, you want to hire Bespoken!!!"
-Kristyn, 2017 Bride
"Shannon with Bespoken Weddings was without a doubt the best decision that we made for our wedding day! Everything went so smoothly, and she made the whole process as stress-free as possible! She really went above-and-beyond to ensure that we were happy and had a great time. I can't say enough good things about her! She was a pleasure to work with and worth every penny and more. I had several married friends tell me that the whole day would be a big blur afterward and not to be disappointed if things didn't go as expected...they could not have been more wrong, and I know that is all because of Shannon! Thank you so much for a perfect wedding day!"
-Rachel, 2017 Bride
"Shannon was a delight to work with! She knows the right questions to ask and the details you wouldn't even think of to pull off your special day without a hitch. My husband and I were able to enjoy our entire day (& the planning leading up to it!) because we knew it was in good hands. She also made sure our families and friends knew what to expect, which was wonderful for us, since many of them came from out-of-town. Couldn't have done it without her! Would 100% recommend!"
-Suzanne, 2017 Bride
"Shannon Royal and Bespoken are the best! She was so easy to work with and very thorough. She kept the bride and mother-of-the-bride organized and on task and kept the process from being overwhelming. The day of the wedding was when she really made things easy. All we had to do was enjoy the day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND as a wedding planner/coordinator!"
-Anne, 2017 Mother of the Bride
"I'm smiling all over again just thinking about Shannon and the wonderful way she helped and handled arrangements for my daughter's wedding. During the planning stages, she asked some really great questions and thought of things we hadn't thought of; she helped us focus in on what was important which allowed us to make informed decisions about things. She was aware of, and wanted to be involved in, the 'big picture' of the entire day. She worked well with all of the wedding vendors -- communicating and coordinating with delivery personnel and florists. But it was her attitude that was the best part of the experience. She was so willing to take on and conquer some the logistical challenges that can come with an outdoor ceremony (to include the threat of bad weather!). She 'kept her cool' throughout, and that calm demeanor set the tone for the entire event. To know she was there handling things took a HUGE load off this mother's mind, allowing me to relax and enjoy a very special day. And I watched Shannon, too -- she was practically bursting with excitement! Just as happy for the bride and groom -- and wanting everything to be "just right" -- as we all were. To say 'we were pleased with Shannon' would be an understatement. She is that rare combination of professional with a personal touch; a true gem."
-Amy, 2014 Mother of the Bride
"I am proud to say I think we were Shannon's first customers in 2002. She was amazing, helpful, calm and focused with everything: planning, suggestions, tips, and communication. During the short weeks leading up to our wedding and the day of the ceremony, Shannon was supportive in every way, and I truly enjoyed each minute. We had a small service with lunch afterwards, and Shannon coordinated it all: music, people, food, pictures, dancing, flowers, guest book, candles and all the details. We had a wonderful wedding, and I know it was due to Shannon warmth and coordinating the whole event."
-Susan, 2002 Bride
"Shannon with Bespoken coordinated my wedding ceremony at the Westin Poinsett in Greenville, SC. I can't sing her praises enough. She went above and beyond to make our wedding day so special and perfect. Her service is top notch. Her presence was calming and she truly has a special touch. She gave us such a heart felt treat that shows how kind and thoughtful she is. Its those little touches that make Shannon the best!"
-Jennifer, 2017 Bride
"My fiancé and I could not have been happier with Shannon's professionalism, organization and calming personality on our wedding day. She has the perfect disposition to do her job as she remains incredibly calm and reassuring while also tactfully keeping things in order and running on time. I can honestly say it was the happiest day of my life and having Shannon there put my fiancé, my family and me completely at ease. We did not have to worry about a thing, and I would wholeheartedly and without a doubt recommend her services to anyone considering a wedding planner. Thank you, Shannon, for helping make our day so special."
-Lauren, 2017 Bride
"Shannon was so confident, helpful, and kept the wedding on task, time and perfect. She was very easy to work with and made it a pleasant experience for everyone. I didn't have to worry about anything on the wedding day!"
-Belinda, 2017 Mother of the Bride
"Shannon helped us plan a New Year's Eve wedding and we couldn't have been more fortunate. She kept us on track every step of the way with a very reasonable timeline. Her expertise and advice on wedding etiquette was so helpful. She was so organized and paid such close attention to every detail, which made our job easy! Most importantly, Shannon was always so quick to return phone calls, emails, etc. I can't thank you enough, Shannon!"
-Erin, 2016 Bride
"I can't say enough wonderful things about Shannon and the service at Bespoken. Shannon helped me so much in the coordination of our daughter's wedding which took place New Year's Eve. Shannon's attention to detail kept us ahead of schedule in the planning, on budget, and so pleased with the resulting ceremony and reception. I couldn't have done it without her!! If you are looking for a thorough and pleasant experience in the planning of your wedding, book with Shannon! We absolutely love her!!"
-Claudia, 2016 Mother of the Bride
"My husband and I were married in Nashville, Tennessee. It was quite possibly one of the most unpredictable weather days of that particular fall season (with the persistent threat of storms), but looking back on the day as a whole, it could not have been more magical. Take away all of the flowers, decor, and cake, and you are left with the crux of what truly makes up the 'best day of your life': the people. We could not have asked for a better group of individuals to surround us with love and support, and Shannon stands right up there at the top.
Shannon made sure each event of the day started at the right time, each person in the wedding party was where they were supposed to be during each of those moments, and fielded a majority of the questions that would have most likely been directed to me. In other words, Shannon did EVERYTHING. On top of it all, she remained calm, cool, collected, and did it all with a constant smile.
From the very beginning, Shannon was 100% on board to help - no questions asked. Her easy-going, 'I've got this' attitude gave me the peace I needed going into the days leading up to the big event. On the day of our wedding, I knew that Shannon would take care of it, no matter how big or how small the task. She went above and beyond to organize, delegate, and most importantly, keep me sane on my wedding day! If I had to do the whole wedding day all over again, there is one thing I know for sure: The Wedding Coordinator would be Shannon."
-Natalie, 2014 Bride
"Working with Shannon was great! She was so helpful during the short three month planning period of our wedding. She took the stress out of a very stressful situation and was available to answer questions and address concerns promptly. It was a beautiful ceremony and reception. She did exactly what we asked and more!"
-Jennifer, 2009 Bride
