April is such an amazing wedding planner. She helped me plan my Fall 2012 wedding and I couldn't be more pleased. She is very understanding and always has the best ideas. She is clever in taking your ideas and spinning them into a cohesive theme. She is energetic and pleasant even at 2 a.m. when I was in a panic. She has become more than just a wedding planner, I consider her my friend.
Couldn't Have Done It Without Her
April was a pleasure to work with. She single handily pulled off my wedding and it was stunning. Her assistant Sara was so helpful and for being so young very professional. We had a big wedding and when it became overwhelming I was so glad to have April and her crew to turn to. She handled even the smallest of details and kept my budget on track. Her ideas were fresh and creative and she really brought my vision to life. Absolute best. In fact we are now planning my daughter's birthday party. We're doing a glamping party and she is a wealth of ideas.
Response from Fancy Events:
Thanks so much Gabrielle. I appreciate your fun attitude. We are going to have an awesome 5th birthday party for Anna.
What an amazing experience April and her team at Fancy Events created for us. A Las Vegas Wedding can quickly turn into a cheese-fest rather quickly but April made it an elegant and intimate affair. The wedding was small with only close family and friends in attendance. She also coordinated our reception back home and it was lovely. She made everyone feel like they had been included in our wedding ceremony even though they were not there by coordinating with our videographer to play a video montage of the ceremony at the reception.
We also opted for the E-Bridal Shower and let me tell you it was so touching. My best childhood friend and sister among other family and friends were able to attend virtually and that meant so much to me.
Response from Fancy Events:
Thank you so much Krista. We had such a great time planning your events. You are a dream client, so easy going, and delightful. Don't hesitate to call for any of your other lifetime moment celebrations. We would gladly work with you again
I am writing this review to all the brides out there who don't want their wedding ruined...
I had April plan my wedding and from the moment I hired her it was a complete disaster.
She tries to wave away your wedding planning problems without solving them.
She doesn't care about the bride's vision, she would rather do it her way with her ideas coming to life not yours, and does not like to stick to the budget.
She claims to have all the big "connections" when she really doesn't know anything or anyone; I found the majority of my vendors on my own and they were way better than anything she recommended.
She is unprofessional and shows up to vendor appointments, etc in her sweats and making inappropriate jokes.
She is completely immature, always talking back and getting really easily offended and if you disagree with any of her ideas she will fight with you, even in public.
But worst of all, she steals your money. She told me she needed a set amount of money for flowers but when they arrived the day before the wedding, there was only half of what she said she was ordering. She ordered a stage and I trusted the amount she told me she needed to pay for it, but when they delivered it, the receipt was for less than what I paid her. And so much more.
She quit the week before the wedding and honestly, that was the best part of hiring her. After she quit, everything with the wedding went smoothly and I was much less stressed.
If anyone hires her for their wedding it would be a HUGE mistake. She doesn't know anything and she almost ruined my wedding.
Response from Fancy Events:
All of what you have just read is not at all true. This bride was very difficult to work with because she really had no concept of her vision and pricing for it. She kept changing her mind causing for her budget to be altered. She would not listen to any suggestions from me or my partner and we often wondered why she hired a wedding planner in the first place if she didn't want any input from us as to how to execute her vision. She decided to have an out door wedding in July and wouldn't listen to reason when we suggested that a candy bar would be a nightmare. I also cautioned her to choose a venue that could offer an indoor site in case of rain and she insisted that it wouldn't rain. It didn't just rain it was a tornado watch storm pouring several inches of water.She and her fiance yelled at me in the middle of Walmart. Her own mother told her she was being ridiculous and immature.I'm sorry her wedding did not go well but the reasons above were not why and I absolutely did not steal.
