Valerie at Event Du Jour was absolutely wonderful to work with - I am lucky to have been introduced to her and would strongly recommend her services to anyone planning an important event.

As a person who frequently organizes corporate events for work, I was one of those brides who didn't think I would need any "help" on the day of the wedding. That couldn't have been further from the truth. It was Valerie's day-of presence that made it possible for me to actually enjoy my wedding day. She magically took care of several minor vendor issues that popped up - I didn't even know about them until the following day. She also had to make a few game-time decisions on our behalf due to the weather that I was very happy with.

Valerie also made it easy for me to plan my wedding from another city. She listened to what my husband and I wanted to for our reception and, because she knows absolutely everyone in the Twin Cities area, was instantly able to make vendor recommendations so that I didn't have to shop around for services. I never would have found our florist if it weren't for her.

Overall, I think the best part of working with Valerie at Event Du Jour was that I quickly trusted her - I trusted right from the start that she had my best interests in mind. She was always available to chat or email, so I also felt that she was committed to making my event great. I can't recommend her enough.

This company is spectacular and everything went as planned. She seemed a little stressed on the day from feedback I heard but other than that I would totally hire her again if I had to do it all over again. I would not have known half the things I know now had it not been for her and she was worth every cent! I would have been very sorry had we not hired her and we were actually referred to her so that just goes to show how good she is.

Valerie of event du jour ltd was the best investment I made for our wedding. She is smart, responsible, personable and "shows up" in every way possible. As a result, I was simply the most relaxed, happy bride and did not worry about one thing all during the planning process and on my wedding day. I highly recommend her!

We met Valerie at the wedding fair a few years ago and really liked her. We told her a bit about our vision for our wedding and she really seemed interested in making it happen for us. I feel that it is extremely important for your planner to be excited for your wedding and have creative ideas on the spot, of which she did. Our wedding was very unique, we got married on Halloween (our favorite Holiday) and really wanted to make it a creepy & elegant affair. It was pulled off so well that our wedding even aired on television on the news that night.(http://www.kare11.com/news/news_article.aspx?storyid=827628) Overall hiring Valerie was the best investment we had in our wedding. She really made everything stress free for us. I could not have imagined handling all the little bumps that are unexpected. I didn't even know there were ANY at all until after our follow up meeting. Thanks Valerie

Valerie was more then helpful in planning my husband and my wedding. In the end, we actually ended up saving more money because of Event Du Jour ltd then we spent for the wedding planning. I wouldn't try to plan a wedding without Valerie! She took care of everything including scheduling meetings, planning, coordinating our vendors and setting up day-of. I can't say enough about the great work that Event Du Jour does!

Valerie went above and beyond what we expected when we hired a day-of-coordinator. She was very willing to participate in many more aspects of planning than just the day-of and even worked with our other vendors when the wedding date got closer.

Valerie was terrific! We booked her for just a Day of Coordinator but she went way beyond that. We were planning from out of state and every time we came into town Valerie met with us and made sure she knew excactly what we wanted. She really took the stress out of all the planning. Her attention to detail and follow through were flawless. Our day would not have been the same with out her!

Event ju Dour was incredible! Valerie did an out of this world job. Honestly, I don't know how I would have done any of this planning alone. She was so flexible, responsible, friendly and most of all great at planning! She kept us on track of what needed to be done and was there to help out the whole way through. Our wedding day was perfect, beautiful and memorable because of Valerie. We didn't worry about anything during our big day because we had so much confidence in Valerie that it would all turn out. The most important part for me and my husband is that we got to truly ENJOY our time of being engaged because we knew with having Valerie's help everything would be just fine. So many people lose sight in what is truly important when planning-they get so frusterated with details, but when you have Event de jour helping you can competely relax. Valerie became much more than our planner, she was a wonderful friend and we knew she wanted us to have the very best wedding. We would recommend her to everyone!!! We can't say enough great things!!
