Disappointment, sadness and embarrassment! In the days following our wedding, we were informed by multiple attendees of Yvonnes inappropriate and unprofessional behavior. Family and friends of ours could not believe that she was our “day of coordinator”!Our guests witnessed her lack of attention to the details that were important to my wedding day. From the moment our vendors arrived to set up the beach deck, to the actual wedding ceremony to the start of the receptio. Her duties were neglected.Rather than assist in making sure things went smoothly and as planned….she instead told my friends who arrived early to help out that details were NOT her responsibility, she indulged in alcohol, stood from a distance on the deck and just observed the ceremony, then went on to dance inappropriately, intimidate guests, and request songs she wanted to hear to the DJ at my reception.She made her priority having fun while fully neglecting the actual duty for which she was hired! Yvonne and I met the week before my wedding and went through a binder with a list of expectations and obligations for which I paid her $350 to complete. She made no mention that she was going to be incapable of fulfilling those duties. I am still appalled that she did not hold up her end of the agreement. In addition, it took her over a month to return my day-of binder to me. Furthermore, it became an even wider eye-opener when we received our wedding video and pictures from the day. She is clearly visible in the background of the video and pictures standing off to the side with a drink in her hand, grinding on our guests, and appears completely intoxicated - not acting professional at all. A true embarrassment! When I found out that she had to be asked to leave the reception, I was in disbelief! Save your $$$ and hire someone else! Message me if you want any more details of information. I have more to say but not enough room here...

We found California Wedding Divas while surfing the internet, and we called because we really liked the name of the company. I must say that it was one of the best calls that I have ever made! Yvonne answered the phone with such a pleasant voice, and I could tell after only a few minutes of talking with her that she was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding planner. Yvonne’s warm and fun personality was impossible to resist! She was just so friendly and easy going. Throughout the entire planning process, Yvonne did everything she could to ease the stress. She was always available whenever I called, and during the few times that my phone call did go to voice mail, she always called back immediately! It was such a joy to work with someone as sweet and reliable as Yvonne. She was always eager to help, very attentive with all the details, and she never left me hanging. On our rehearsal date, I was so impressed that Yvonne had taken the time to prepare an itinerary of what was going to take place minute by minute during the ceremony. Yvonne is punctual,
professional, and incredibly organized!

I also booked Yvonne for the floral arrangements, and our flowers were such a hit at the wedding! She did such a beautiful job with both the flowers AND the decorations. People are still telling me to this day how beautiful the flowers were. Everything looked so great and so stunning! My husband and I highly recommend California Wedding Divas!

Yvonne was very pleasant, efficient, knowledgeable, had great ideas, and most of all trustworthy in all of her decision makings and as a person.

Yvonne is simply the best wedding planner we could have asked for. From start to finish she was very easy to work with, very flexible and considerate of our needs and budget. She not only alleviated a huge burden off our shoulders, she also saved us a ton of money with all the great deals she negotiated with the vendors. We had a small budget, but she pulled off a dream wedding for us at a beautiful venue with great food and decor. It will be a memory of a lifetime and we could not have done it with the budget we had if we hadn't worked with Yvonne. If you're looking for the perfect wedding planner for your perfect wedding, look no further.

We used California Wedding Divas for full wedding coordination, and we were so
happy that we did! Yvonne’s special vendor list was one of the many reasons
that we decided to use her services. Her warm and friendly attitude throughout
the entire process was just icing on the cake! She was able to save us A LOT of
money on our floral arrangements, wedding party transportation, and our wedding
cake. Yvonne was also instrumental in helping us find the right wedding venue
to suit both our budget and our personal style. Yvonne and her staff handled
all the intricate details that went into the wedding planning as well as all the
vendor coordination during our big day! She was with us each step of the way
from our initial meeting with her almost a year ago all the way through to the
end of the wedding reception. She personally stayed around after the reception
was over to make sure things were in order and to make sure we received our
deposit back from the wedding venue. California Wedding Divas were wonderful,
and I definitely recommend Yvonne and her staff to anyone in need of top notch
wedding planning for almost any budget!

Since our wedding date was during prime wedding season, I was really worried about finding a good wedding coordinator. I ended up calling California Wedding Divas, and Yvonne answered the phone with such a pleasant voice. After having a nice conversation over the phone, we decided to meet. Yvonne was so sweet in person, and we immediately clicked! She made planning my wedding such a fun experience, and her vendor connections enabled my family to save a significant amount of money on the overall wedding cost. Yvonne was eager to help throughout the entire process, and she was always there when we needed her. When it came to our big day, her professionalism made things flow smoothly. Yvonne did a great job, and I would certainly recommend California Wedding Divas to any bride!

My mom really wanted to have an wedding planner for my hubby's and I big day. I was opposed to it at first but I am SO thankful we went with the California Wedding Diva's! Yvonne went above and beyond my expectations. She serviced areas of our wedding that we did not even hire her for and made everything looks absolutely beautiful. Yvonne made sure everything ran smoothly and efficiently on our big day. I HIGHLY recommend going through California Wedding Divas. Professional, extremely helpful, and goes above and beyond your expectations. I thank my mom everyday for convincing me to hire Yvonne.

California Wedding Divas were awesome! We're from Maine, and we were looking to have a destination wedding in San Diego. So, we searched on the Internet for a wedding coordinator who could help us out in San Diego since we live so far away. We decided to call California Wedding Divas because I thought the name was unique and creative. Wow! Yvonne and her staff were not only creative but she was also very personable, and such a joy to work with. Yvonne was able to use her professional contacts in San Diego to help us plan a wonderful wedding from the complete opposite side of the country. When we weren't able to be in San Diego for personal vendor meetings, Yvonne and her staff made sure to meet with each of our vendors. She even picked us up at the airport a few times, so we didn't have to worry about finding vendor and venue locations on our own. She was so instumental in making our big day a success. Everyone is still telling us how much fun they had! We were so lucky to find Yvonne and her staff, and we would recommend California Wedding Divas to anyone looking to work with a sweet yet professional wedding coordinator.

Yvonne is creative, ridiculously organized, and she ensured that my special day was perfect! When I told Yvonne I wanted a candy table, I was expecting something similar to what I had seen at wedding shows, but Yvonne went way above and beyond my expectations. She created a beautiful display of artfully organized (and delicious) candies in my wedding colors. I received so many complements on that table! Her special little touches, like that, made all the difference. Yvonne was also "on it"! My husband and I had an outdoor reception on the beach. I didn't want to order heating lamps because the day was so beautiful. However, when the sun went down, it got a little chilly. Yvonne made sure there were heating lamps on the deck for the beginning of my reception even though it was Sunday of a holiday weekend. I have no idea how she pulled that off, but it was great! My guests were comfortable, wedding was perfect, and I would highly recommend CA Wedding Divas!

Marvelous service! I don't know how we would have managed without Yvonne and

planning of our wedding and reception. Yvonne was so pleasant to work with, and she did a great job keep me focused on having fun with the whole wedding
planning process. She had such a calming effect on me. During the actual day
of the wedding, California Wedding Divas were amazing! They orchestrated a
wonderful wedding and reception from beginning to end. I didn't have to worry
about a thing because Yvonne, her vendors, and her staff were on top of all of
the details throughout the entire event. I recommend California Wedding Divas
for anyone who wants a worry-free wedding. Yvonne is a class act!
