Aimee.. Oh where, oh where can I start with Miss Aimee?? WE LOVE HER! She first did an amazing job with my now sister-in-law’s wedding back in 2011 and she quickly became part of our extended family, so there was no question that when my fiancé and I got engaged that Aimee HAD to be our planner. She was there with me through the ups, downs, meltdowns and everything in between!! She was there with me every crazy step of the way and I cannot thank her enough for just the support that she provided to me. She got me in contact with some amazing vendors and totally supported my vision the entire time! She did an amazing job helping me put together our 500 guest wedding on our private farm that was definitely not fit for a wedding at the beginning of all this. Of course, it was my husband doing the heavy lifting, but she was right there with me throwing out ideas and making it gorgeous! Aimee is amazing and knows how to throw an incredible event! I could not have done it without her!!

The BEST decision I made in all of my wedding planning was hiring Aimee as our wedding planner. I think I am one of the few brides who actually can look back and confidently say that I enjoyed every bit of wedding planning and my wedding day...this is because of Aimee. She is a poised professional, with the most refreshing warm, yet calm energy about her.

My fiancé and I had a clear vision for our music festival themed wedding. It was going to be a classy, yet very fun affair. This was a hard vision to share with most people, but Aimee understood from day one and whole heartedly embraced the theme. The day of the wedding, she brought all of our unique ideas together better than I could have ever imagined.

Throughout the wedding planning process Aimee was always at least 5 steps ahead of me, but I never really knew because she would strategically bring up information so I wouldn’t get overwhelmed or distracted. I thought this was genius!! It is is so easy to get overwhelmed while planning a wedding, but Aimee always kept me at ease. Not only was Aimee wonderful to work with, but every vendor she recommended to us was phenomenal.

Aimee and the 2Chic Staff are absolutely amazing. My advice to all future brides is to look no further and hire Aimee as your wedding planner, she is the best of the best!!

Working with 2Chic Events was one of the worst experiences of our lives and nearly ruined our entire wedding. Aimee was responsible for assisting us in booking a venue in Cabo, but the venues she provided either did not match our budget, or did not match the few requirements we had. During our on location venue search Aimee did not know about the existence of major landmarks in Cabo. She had offered to drive us to the site visits then decided the day before, she did not feel comfortable driving in Cabo. During the site visits Aimee did not ask many questions and seemed disengaged. We were greatly disappointed by her behavior as we thought she would be leading the negotiations and obtaining the required information. We repeatedly asked for a more detailed budget but unfortunately we never received this. When we finally found our venue, Aimee informed us she was not able to connect with the venue manager to follow up on our questions and obtain the contract. After over 3 weeks we were in danger of losing our date, we still did not have the contract or the detailed budget we had been asking for, and we concluded we needed to end our relationship with 2Chic Events in the best interest of our wedding. After 6 months of working with 2Chic Events, the only completed item was the booking of our photographer. After ending our relationship with Aimee, we received an email from her demanding an additional $750 to cover her hard costs. We informed her that we would be open to a discussion, but felt she had been paid fairly through our prior payment and asked for an explanation regarding the specific amount, but were served with papers on 10/4/12 to attend Small Claims Court! We were completely shocked! Having her plan a destination wedding was a complete disaster, in addition to taking a huge emotional toll. For someone who plans weddings for a living, I was shocked to see the extent she went to in order to ruin our wedding after we let her go.

2Chic Events & Design responded with the following comments:

This review is very disheartening to me. After 5 years in business, and nearly 100 weddings planned {both local and destination}, this is my first unhappy customer. While I absolutely welcome feedback on my services, a large portion of what is written here is simply false or exaggerated information.

Unfortunately, Marissa and Alex had never expressed any concern over the work that I was doing for them or rendered any complaints regarding my services during our wedding planning process, which left me unable to rectify any concerns of theirs before things escalated to this level. When I received their cancellation just a few short weeks after retuning from Mexico, they expressed how helpful I had been and how sorry that they were to have to cancel, but that it seemed to make more sense to hire a planner on the ground in Mexico. It wasn't until I mentioned that they would still have to pay me for services already rendered that their hostility began.

It has now become clear to me that this was a situation where there wasn't anything I could do to make this customer happy. I referred them to the venue that they ultimately ended up booking just 2 weeks after we entered into contract. I provided them with detailed spreadsheets and worksheets outlining the costs, amenities, etc. at hotels selected by both me and them, I traveled at my own expense to Mexico {because my husband and I own a timeshare in Cabo and were already in the process of booking a trip}, gave up days of my vacation time with my husband to work for them, made several out of country calls, rented a car at my own expense to tour venues for them and paid my assistants to help with this wedding as well. I simply had to recover my costs for that work and be paid for mine and my staffs' time.

Marissa and Alex were due to pay me for those services under the terms of their contract 6 days prior to their cancellation and failed to make that payment. As a small business owner, as much as I would like to appeal to their emotions, I'm just not able to absorb that kind of loss.

Unfortunately, after they refused my offer to settle for 1/3 of their balance, I did have to take them to small claims court in order to obtain the money that was owed to me, and the judge did rule in my favor. I am deeply sorry to hear that this caused them such great turmoil and I wish them the best.

Aimee and her team were well worth every dime! She provided constant support, organization and management of our wedding. Everything went off without a hitch and she was on-hand to handle any and everything during our day. She provided valuable information during the planning process and made sure we had everything covered.

My husband and I decided to start our wedding planning process pretty early so we contacted a few wedding planners. We did not know how lucky we were at the time, but Aimee Wendell from 2Chic promptly emailed us back, and magic happened! Aimee was able to understand what we wanted, and we couldn’t have been happier to have her be a part of the planning process.

Aimee’s network within the wedding industry is unparalleled, which is invaluable. All of the vendors we contacted were thrilled that Aimee was our planner, and that meant a lot to us. Even though we started the planning process super early, Aimee kept in constant contact with us, even if it was just to say hi. Aimee has such a personal touch which makes working with her such a joy. But it is really Aimee’s talent and dedication to her clients that need to be highlighted. Aimee was there at our engagement shoot and she designed the entire look and feel of the photo shoot. She was there for pretty much all of the meetings with the vendors and helped us through the entire decision making process. Without her, we would have been so lost. When I talk about dedication, I am remembering instances like when Aimee and the entire 2Chic team stepped in at the 9th hour to help assemble our favors when my husband and I were freaking out because we realized we did not have enough time to do it ourselves. When I talk about talent, I recall the jaw dropping design she came up for our venue which included patterned ceiling lights and unique escort cards. Truthfully, there is no review that can encompass how great Aimee is. I am truly, truly grateful that we hired Aimee to be our wedding planning because not only did she plan the most AWESOME wedding ever, but she is honestly someone that I can now call my friend! She is genuinely the best and there is no one better to plan your wedding. Future brides – trust me. Hire Aimee as she is truly the best.

As many others have said, 2Chic is amazing! We worked with Becca and Nichole for day of coordinating, and there could not have been a better match. We were perfectly in sync with every detail; it was as though they could read my mind! I thought I had all of the little details mapped out, but there are some things that I had no idea I even needed to consider, and Becca and Nichole tied up all of the loose ends for us. They truly are the calm amidst the storm, and provide assurance to what could easily be an extremely stressful process. I put all my trust in Becca and she did not dissapoint :) No detail was left unturned and I absolutely recommend them to all of my bride friends!

My husband and I hired Aimee for partial planning over a year and a half before our wedding, and boy am I glad we swooped her up before someone else got a chance to!! I was initially hesitant to hire a planner, trying to avoid any extra expenses, however my mom persuaded me and it was the smartest decision we made!

Working with Aimee for the past year and a half was a dream. She is sweet, comforting, smart, and incredibly wedding and design savvy. She never pushed her opinion on me, instead she gently guided me in the right direction to make my dream wedding a reality. She saved me from hiring some not-so-desirable vendors, and based on her recommendations I feel like I truly had a vendor dream team! Aimee was always a call, text or email away to give me advice or answer questions that popped up.

As a self-proclaimed Type A control freak, I was completely shocked at how calm and stress free I was at the rehearsal and even the day of the wedding. At the rehearsal I panicked when I realized that I had forgotten to pick up all of the linens. Aimee swooped in and arranged for one of her girls to pick them up before I even had a chance to get stressed out. Then when she realized I had overlooked linens for the buffet tables, she handled the situation with my mom without me being any the wiser. The day of the wedding Aimee had a very limited set up time due to our venue's restrictions, and despite this she still managed to create a gorgeous event that my friends and family are still talking about. I burst into joyful tears at the first site of the reception area, completely at awe at how perfect it all was. Aimee took my vision and bumped it up a couple notches and completely exceeded all of my expectations! Aimee, Kayleigh, and Aubrey were a dream during the wedding, bringing us hor d'ourves and drinks while we took family photos after the ceremony, fixing our plates for dinner, and making sure we had anything we could possibly need. Everything ran flawlessly (to my knowledge), and everyone was able to completely enjoy the evening without having to worry about a thing.

If I could go back and do things differently, I would hire Aimee first, before choosing our venue, and spend the extra money for full planning! She's worth every penny!!

Aimee did a wonderful job on our wedding. Words cannot express her creativity, organizational skills, and her sincere care for our day. She delivered more than I could have ever imagined and when I look back on that day, I get so emotional because Aimee really put her special personal touch in everything. From pouring wine for my family, to just making sure I was relaxed and comfortable, Aimee just made everything wonderful. I give my full 100% recommendation to Aimee Wendell.

I didn't have to worry about anything and could spend my time enjoying our day, the celebration, and our guests. Her recommendations for the vendors were perfect. She puts her heart and soul into her work and it shows. And, to top it all - she is a great person as well. She IS the best!!!

I looked back at the website and saw that you had called Becca something like "the calm in the midst of the storm" and that is exactly what she is. I watched during the final phases of Jeanette and Nate's wedding and then again as she helped me with the day after brunch at our house. She is efficient and calm. I told her what needed to be done and it was done to perfection. I came home from church to see the table beautifully arranged not only with the food but also the flowers from the wedding. I wished I had taken a picture of the table and surrounding areas, because now I only have my memories and nothing in print. Bummer. I wish now that I had used someone like Becca for my other daughters' day after brunch! My life would have been much simpler.

Thinking back to the wedding, which was not my part of the contract, Becca was again efficient and calm. Her assistant, Crystal, was also very helpful although I didn't see her in action as much as Becca. Whenever there was an issue at the reception such as missing place settings, she took care of the problem and I knew I didn't have anything further to worry about.

Becca was great and I certainly wouldn't mind recommending her to any of my friends needing these services.
