If you want to enjoy a stress free, unforgettable wedding day and save money, here are 3 important things to know when deciding whether you need a wedding planner.

1. Stress free wedding: Are you looking forward to experiencing the priceless time of your wedding with the love of your life and your close family and friends? You'll be stress free, if we handle all the details, flawlessly orchestrate the flow of events, troubleshoot with finesse unexpected issues that may arise and be your liaison between the venue, vendors and guests.

3. Beautiful design: Do you have a concrete vision for your wedding day or just a vague idea how your wedding should look and you don’t know how to make it all come together? We'll collaborate with you to translate your vision into a comprehensively designed event filled with many unique and personalized details.

3. Limited Budget: Do you have a limited budget? We will actually help you save money by understanding and focusing on what is important to you. Because of our special relationships with vendors, you won't just get the best deal in town but we will make the event look even more opulent than your budget promised.

Bonus: If you are busy at work or can't meet with all the vendors? We organize, orchestrate your wedding and take care of all the 'dirty little details' to make it an unforgettable event that surpasses your (and your guests') expectations.

Brilliant Event Design is a San Diego Wedding Planner that coordinates all aspects of your wedding so you can enjoy your day carefree whether it's in San Diego or other parts of southern California.

When I initially met Leila I had explained to her that I was one of those girls that dreamed of her wedding day. I wanted to be able to enjoy my wedding day from start to finish without any stress. Leila did this and so much more!

I had a California wedding, but had to plan it from New York. Leila was always responsive to email, phone, and text and always worked around my schedule. She was always a step ahead and never waited until the last minute. She created inspiration boards to help me communicate my vision with my vendors. She is very detail oriented and makes the most amazing referrals and recommendations. I never thought planning a destination wedding could run so smoothly.

The actual wedding day was truly the most amazing day of my life. Leila really makes the wedding experience an enjoyable one. She is so great to work with and truly is one of those people who loves what she does. She is professional and a joy be be around. She really went above and beyond what I expected from her.

Thank you Leila... I couldn't have done it with out you!

Leila was fantastic to work with and made wedding planning manageable and stress-free. Her knowledge, eye for design, and ability to get things done made our wedding more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Everything ran very smoothly and went off without a hitch, which I thought was especially amazing! She had great ideas throughout the process, often going above and beyond what we expected, and had helpful vendor suggestions to fill in areas we needed. She also assisted us with handling challenging vendors that were not performing. Her enthusiasm and professionalism make working with her a joy and we would definitely recommend her to anyone planning a wedding large or small. Ours was a 300 person wedding with a number of vendors, and only 2 hours available for set-up but she managed to get it all done!

Leila at Brilliant Event Design was the perfect fit for our wedding planning needs! Although I was willing to do quite a bit on my own, I knew I needed someone for more than just a day-of; there were some things I was completely struggling with. Leila was flexible in her packages and in the types of services she could offer - which is what I think really sets her apart. She got to know us, then used our likes to pull together a great "look" - everything from designing and handling our invitations, creating signage, choosing fabrics, and finding just the right accents. Not to mention her fantastic ability to plan, organize, and professionally coordinate our vendors. I especially appreciated that she listened (probably endlessly) to my ideas, gave me guidance and thoughtful suggestions, and then executed everything perfectly the day of our wedding. I honestly didn't worry about a thing that day!

I started out with a vision for my daughter's wedding, and Leila brought it to life. She spent 8 months carefully planning and creating to produce a simply ELEGANT wedding, while working with a backyard poolside venue. I was looking for more than just candles and flowers. Leila provided DESIGN based on her exceptional skill and training. She also has great patience to work with a Mother of the Bride!! Every aspect was perfect and beyond my initial vision!

I don't know what I would have done without Leila for my wedding. She was so professional, responsive, accommodating and calm. She went above and beyond for us and our wedding and I really appreciated every thing she did. She was also very conscious about taking the stress off of me and not letting things stress me out the day of which I really appreciated! I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

Leila is top-notch in every respect! She truly took the time to get to know me and get a good feel for our vision for the wedding. She was so neat and organized with her timelines and inspiration boards, which was very reassuring as the ideas were coming together. She was very flexible with meeting times and places, and quick to respond. She was honest but tactful and supportive when I needed help figuring out how to make things work. She made many phone calls and sent many emails to check out services and to get the florist/decorator on the same page. And then, on the day, she was a virtual magician, ensuring everything was in its place and flowing smoothly. Our wedding would not have been anywhere near the lovely experience everyone kept saying it was if it had not been for Brilliant Event Design. And I couldn't have floated around so happily in my blissful cloud :). I absolutely recommend her without hesitation! I would call her myself for any event - she is a rare combination of empathy, creativity, attention to detail and a true eye for beauty. Absolutely wonderful!!

I cannot say enough good things about Leila and Brilliant Event Designs! I really enjoyed working with her, and I would highly recommend Leila to any bride and groom searching for a professional wedding coordinator. Not only does she help you plan your wedding by taking everything into consideration, but she also has a great vision and understanding of what it takes to pull everything together.

She did such a beautiful job – everything from the invitations to the center pieces on the tables were perfect and exactly what we had discussed. She pays great attention to detail and design, and on top of everything, she is extremely personable and really fun to work with.

Thank you, Leila, for doing such a beautiful job!
