In November 2012, Grit + Gold launched as a rebirth of Couture Events by Lottie. Grit + Gold was created on the idea that simple is better. With a hand selected group of first class vendors, wedding planning is fun again! Now that’s just southern hospitality!
If you’re creative and want a wedding that is slightly more memorable than the average ballroom affair….hire Lottie. If you avoid conflict because you want to be on good terms with all vendors, but truly need to get a backbone…hire Lottie. She’ll take the stress out of your engagement, so you can just enjoy the short and cherished time of being a fiance! If you want somebody on your team who will quickly respond, who is easy to get in touch with, and who is already well established in the business….hire Lottie. She knows the right people, she has unbelievable skills, and she is fresh and young while still having enough experience under her belt. She’s the epitome of ‘cool,’ while still having enough sense to run a business. This woman is IT. I’m telling you, I could not have had the wedding of my dreams without her. If you’re questioning whether or not she’s worth it, I can assure you, SHE IS. I can’t sing her praises loudly enough. THANK YOU, LOTTIE. You’re amazing!
Lottie is so great! I only had a four month engagement and for one of those months was still living in Arkansas finishing up my senior year! Without Lottie’s help, the process would have been so stressful! She always found the best deals and gave us insider’s tips and tricks! Any decor I ordered I had shipped to HER house and then she took care of it from there, so convenient! The day of our wedding, I did not lift a finger! I just showed up and everything was perfect! Everyone kept complimenting on what a calm and laid back bride I was, but I know that it was only because Lottie knew how to take care of business!! Lottie is also very flexible! Midway through the process I wasn’t 100% loving the direction we were going with some of the design elements and Lottie completely rearranged it! THAT is a great wedding coordinator, one who listens to a brides wants and needs and makes it happen! My wedding was everything I dreamed of and MORE. I thought that with having a short engagement I would have to compromise on things that I wanted but Lottie made it happen. I never believed that I would get to have such an incredible wedding! I was blown away! Lastly, Lottie is a woman of integrity. On our first consultation, Lottie easily could have tried to sell me her most expensive package just because I didn’t really know any better and needed a lot of help and she did not. She listened to my mom and my desires and set us up with the package that best suited us. That made me really respect and trust Lottie. She is not out to spend your money, she’s out to save it. And that she did! Lottie rocks!!
Lottie was probably one of the best things that happened to my wedding! I hired her to handle Day of Coordination and I guess my only regret was that I didn’t get the full on package to handle even more of the details. Lottie had great, unique ideas, was always on the ball and super organized. She had no issues pushing vendors and handling issues before and during the wedding (i.e. party crashers off the street, or photographers having words with caterers… she handled it all!) I couldn’t recommend her enough.
