One of the best decisions we made for our wedding was to work with Brocade Events! Janis and her team made sure our big day ran seamlessly, and our wedding would not have been absolutely perfect if not for them!

We began working with Janis over a year ago, and she always made sure to keep in touch with us and stay informed. She met with us regularly to make sure she understood our vision for the wedding, and she helped us find vendors who could help us turn our vision into reality. Janis is extremely knowledgeable and experienced, so her advice really helped us make decisions throughout the planning process. She is also very professional, always respsonsive, and extremely flexible (she was always available for us when we needed her)!

Prior to the wedding day, Janis reached out to all of our vendors and provided them with all of the necessary information they needed. On the wedding day itself, we did not have a worry in the world because we had full faith and confidence in Janis and her team. We were beyond ecstatic with how well everything was run, how organized everything was, and how everything was what we had envisioned AND MORE!

Our guests had only compliments to share with us after the wedding, and we have Brocade Events to thank for helping it all come together and making our day the best day of our lives! The quality of service Janis and her team provide is exceptional and we encourage engaged couples to work with Brocade Events to ensure that their weddings will be as perfect and seamless as ours was!

THANK YOU, BROCADE EVENTS!

We had Brocade Events do our day-of co-ordination, and I just have to say that Janis and her team made our day just that much more amazing! From taking care of the little things, to managing the big things, no detail was too small, and it really allowed us to enjoy our day. Any time something needed to change, they always had a suggestions and a backup plan, and it made making decisions on the fly so easy and seamless. I would definitely recommend the Brocade Events team to friends and family.

I can’t tell you the number of times that I told people before and after our wedding that working with Janis was one of the best vendor decisions we made for our wedding. We connected with her through our dear friends who also used Brocade Events for their day-of coordination. I was lucky enough to watch her in action at their rehearsal and wedding – her poise, professionalism, kindness and calm attitude radiate out of her and put everyone around her at ease. It was a very easy decision to connect with her for our wedding day.

During the months coming up to the wedding, her sweet emails and gentle reminders helped to keep us on track. Her knowledge of everything wedding-related is astounding – from the history of various traditions to great ideas she’s seen before – she was a wonderful resource for us as we approached the big day.

It was a huge weight off my shoulders to know that she was going to wrangle all of the logistics of the day on our behalf – it allowed me to be totally carefree and know that my loved ones were really ‘present’ with us to celebrate. She and her team handled last minute changes/crises with grace and made everyone feel at ease, whether it was 11th hour changes to the guest list and seating, spills on bridesmaid dresses, the timing of dinner service… we were so impressed from start to finish.

Investing in the services of Brocade Events was truly one of the best choices we made for our wedding day. I will recommend them highly to friends and family in the future.

We hired Janis from Brocade Events for full planning for our special day from start to finish. From the moment we met Janis, we knew that she would be the one to keep us on track and ensure our day would be well planned and executed. We were in touch with Janis frequently to ensure we were making our way through the checklists she had provided. She attended all vendor meetings and recommended reliable people that were a pleasure to work with. She as well relieved a lot of the stress and pressure of the wedding by conducting all necessary inquires with vendors and follow ups. Janis is an absolute pleasure to work with, not only is she organized and detailed, she has a great personality and is very friendly. After knowing Janis for only a few weeks, it seemed as if we had known her for much longer which made working with her more like working with a good friend. She understood what our vision for our wedding was and ensured that no matter what our day would not only be up to our standards but memorable. People warned us that on your wedding day there will be so many things that will go wrong and so many hiccups but with Janis there, honestly there was nothing that went wrong and if it did, to this day we do not know about it.  Janis truly made our wedding one of the best weddings many of our guests attended (the best in our eyes) and for this we are forever grateful. Having her work hand in hand with us for the planning of our wedding was the best decision we ever made. We highly recommend Janis to anybody and everybody. Her passion and love for wedding planning is what separates her from other planners and what makes her stand above the rest. Janis, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the work, time and effort you put into our wedding!

Janis and her team from Brocade Events were absolutely phenomenal to work with! We hired Brocade Events for month-before/day-of coordination services, and Janis went above and beyond to make sure our day ran smoothly! From our very first meeting, she was professional, friendly,warm, knowledgeable and so organized! She definitely helped me stay calm as I prepared for our big day. She also provided me with fantastic checklists, suggestions, and tips to keep me on track with planning. On the day of our wedding, she was so helpful with set-up, coordinating with vendors, and making sure that my husband and I were happy and enjoying ourselves. (She even brought an incredible emergency kit, and was on hand with breath mints and water). I would highly recommend Brocade Events to anyone planning a wedding! Our day was amazing, and totally exceeded our expectations, and Brocade Events was so helpful in making our day run smoothly and feel so special!

It may have been that the bridesmaid dresses we ordered came in looking like something that a seventh grade home ec student would have made.Maybe it was a spelling error on our invites, or the fact that a lot
of guests didn't know how to RSVP online and made the assumption they’d be able to just show up for our plated dinner. Could have been the venue flooding one week before the actual day- I never thought our wedding would happen.
The only thing keeping me together was Janis. Not only was Janis able to come up with solutions to each one of my issues in a timely and efficient manner, she did it with compassion and tact (which was
needed in my fragile state). Did I mention that I live in Calgary, Alberta and Janis was in Ontario handling all of these “snags”?
Even though there was a large distance between us, I found Janis to be 100% approachable. We texted, emailed, spoke via phone or Skype on a weekly basis. She provided me with checklists (loved them)
and timelines for my (now) Husband and I to follow. Having that material really helped keep us organized and up-to-date with everything that needed to be completed.
Within hours of finding out we had to find a new venue (in less than a week), Janis had several venues and vendors readily available for us to choose from. It was amazing. By the time she touched down in Calgary (after her plane was hit by lightning and delaying the flight by several hours) she had the new venue/vendors all organized and ready to go for our wedding the next day. On the actual day of the wedding, she was prepared for EVERYTHING- A last minute change with the DJ, my dress ripping and a “runaway” bust line… she had solutions to everything (an extra timeline, a sewing kit and industrial safety pins and baby powder).
I am convinced that our wedding day would not have been what it was without Janis. She is everything and more.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Janis and the Brocade Events team made our wedding day a success. It was absolutely amazing to have the weight of wedding day coordination lifted off our shoulders for the weeks before our wedding and the day of. Janis made sure that all of our wedding planning was in order and she provided us the tools we needed to ensure every last detail was taken care of. Not only did she allow us complete freedom to deside how we wanted our day to flow, she made sure all of our vendors were on board and on time! I don't know what we would have done without her! Anything and everything that needed to be done the day of the wedding flowed like a well oiled machine. Janis and her team are extreamly professional and organized. They made our day a wedding to remember forever, without the stress on myself and family to make sure all the fine details were right. Even the staff at our venue commented to us the day of the wedding how awesome you guys are! We would recommend Janis and Brocade Events to anyone planning a wedding, party or any special occasion! We are blessed to have found such talented people to help us on our special day. Thank you so so so much for everything, you are truely amazing! xoxo

We learned early on that Janis is the perfect blend of personal & professional! In fact, our friendship didn't stop at the wedding! From her expertise, to her personality we could always count on her. For example, to better accommodate us she scheduled our meetings at a nearby Second Cup. & she was constantly keeping us informed & corresponding with all our vendors during our journey, making sure no detail was overlooked & every person involved fit well with us. Don't even get me started on the awesome Bridal emergency kit she was armed with on the day of! ha Admittedly, our wedding was quite a tall order, having a medieval theme but Janis came through; never compromising on our shared vision & theme. It was especially important for us to be faithful to a budget as well, & Janis tried hard to keep us stubborn folks true to it, haha! She was even a great psychologist when family & nerves kicked in! ;) Our day could not have manifested so flawlessly if it wasn't for all Janis' effort! If we renew our vows, Janis will be the first to know!! ;) Big thanks, from the bottom of our hearts!

Janis is one of the most organized and prepared people I've ever met. If it weren't for her and her professional team, my wedding wouldn't have gone as smoothly as it did. Thanks for everything Janis!

Janis and Courtney worked on our wedding. We hired them for "day-of" co-ordination. They were both so helpful (especially with Janis' emergency kit), especially organizing everyone for photographs before the ceremony and timing during the ceremony. I felt as though I did not need to send out a million confirmation emails before the day because Janis had already done it for me! I was very happy I hired Brocade Events.

We hired Janis for "day-of" wedding coordination, but she went above and beyond. In the last month and a half before our wedding Janis really kept us on task and ironed out a lot of nitty gritty details that we didn't really care for. It was great having her there to stress for me! On the day of, Janis was totally prepared for any detail including bottled water (such a lifesaver) while taking our pictures and chalk to "erase" the dirt from my wedding dress. I am so glad that we decided to hire Janis even though our venue came with a coordinator. I would not have wanted to leave all of the detailed plans to chance. Janis was there to make sure everything happened according to plan.

Thank you again for your wonderful work.
