Working with Courtney was the best experience ever. I cannot say enough positive things. She made planning our wedding a stress-free and immensely enjoyable process. She truly understood our vision and kept us on track the whole way. When people asked why I wasn't stressed leading up to the wedding, it was because I had Courtney there every step of the way.

Our wedding planning process was about 15 months and she was there from beginning to end. From helping us nail down our venue, to picking us up at the airport when it was our only opportunity to meet, to making sure every little detail was in place for our welcome dinner, the wedding and the day after brunch...she was beyond the best. She was there to answer any concerns and truly became my friend and the person I went to everything throughout the whole wedding planning journey. Her creativity and vision completely was in sync with everything I wanted and she executed it to perfection.

She helped us create a wedding that exceeded any dreams we could have ever had and made sure we had some fun while doing it!

Fabulously Chic Weddings stood up to their name by giving my fiancé and I the Florida wedding we had dreamt. Trying to plan a destination wedding without much familiarity of vendors in the area and obtaining your vision can be very stressful. Courtney made the entire process smooth and painless and she truly took the stress of planning off my shoulders. She was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish and exceeded every expectation. I wanted a wedding and reception that everyone would leave still talking about and Courtney delivered! Thank you Courtney for everything. It was absolutely beautiful!

To summarize the review I am about to write: Courtney is amazing. Do not think twice. Hire her. NOW.

Now for the long review: I am a very organized person and didn't think I needed a wedding planner. But, so many people told me there is a need for one no matter how organized you think you are. I ended up interviewing a few planners and realized the huge value that they would add. I hired Courtney for her day of services, which meant she started getting involved about a month before to help organize schedules and reach out to vendors. She was truly amazing. She asked me questions that I didn't even know I had to think about, and helped put me at ease throughout it all. She paid attention to every little detail, and I knew once it was in her hands - it would run smoothly. She was truly a game changer to my wedding and helped relieve any stress I had. I live in another state, so we had to ship a few things down to make it easier on us. Courtney volunteered for us to ship things to her house, which was so nice of her. She went out of her way to do things like that, to make sure she was helping throughout every step of the way. I can't say enough great things about her. I made a last minute switch as to where I wanted to get ready on the day of, and she didn't bat an eye. She was on it, and contacted all of the hair and makeup crew immediately to let them know of the change.
On top of her amazing skills, she has such a positive attitude. It was easy for me to tell that she is just a kind person, and someone that you just feel good to be around.
I HIGHLY recommend her. My wedding would have not been the same without her role in it.

Courtney from Fabulously Chic Weddings is the best wedding planner a couple can have! We got married in December 2015. We wanted our Indian-American fusion wedding in Southwest Florida, more than 10,000 miles away from where we were living and working. Having Courtney on board to plan and execute our destination wedding was the best decision we made. She is professional, switched on, responsive, has great sense of humor, creative and has brilliant taste. We trusted and appreciated all her recommendations and she offered great solutions to any issue we came across through the process. She dealt with all the cultural and logistical challenges perfectly. She recommended a great team of vendors and everyone worked together brilliantly on our wedding day! Our wedding day was smooth, stress-free and so much fun. We were able to enjoy every moment of our wedding day and didn't need to worry about anything. Thank you Courtney for being such a huge part of our wedding and making our dream wedding a reality!! Best wishes!

I was a destination bride from PA getting married on Sanibel Island. I had a vision in my head for my wedding and Courtney helped me make the big and small decisions to bring it to life from afar - and make it even more beautiful than I could have imagined. I consider myself a very organized and detail oriented person - but Courtney is the most through and thoughtful person I've ever worked with.

She has an amazing "can-do" attitude and holds many valuable relationships within the industry and always gives you her honest opinion when you are weighing options. She became a friend during the planning process - I looked forward to our calls and emails!

If you're looking for someone to take your vision and be your partner in designing and bringing it to life in a more amazing way than you could ever imagined (and have fun along the way) - Fabulously Chic Weddings is it! I can't imagine how I would have pulled off my wedding without her. I am so thankful for the ideas, fashion advice, logistical help and just overall companionship and guidance through the whole process. She found the perfect balance of listening and offering her experience and professional opinion and guidance - the planning was a joy! :)

The guests at my wedding still talk about the "little touches" on our day - all thanks to Courtney.

Save yourself the stress and questioning - Courtney at Fabulously Chic weddings is the real deal - and I consider myself a lucky bride to have worked with her!

Courtney from Fabulously Chic Weddings exceeded all of our expectations. She was consistently professional and went above and beyond without us even asking. We used her for design/decor as well as day-of services. Courtney made sure everything was taken care of and was proactive in making sure we were aware of all of our options. By the time our day arrived, we knew we could trust Courtney to make the day wonderful (which allowed us to focus on having a wonderful time). I would highly recommend hiring her for design/decor in addition to the day-of (initially I only booked for day-of)- she gave me great ideas without being prescriptive and she jumped immediately to action whenever I changed my mind. I have a younger sibling who is not married yet- I don't think I would let her do it without Courtney!!

I wanted to take the time and say how invaluable Courtney Gabelbauer is. From the moment we met, I knew she would make our wedding spectacular and she exceeded our expectations. Not only did she make our day perfect, she also took the time out of her busy schedule to go with me to a dress fitting! She is an incredible coordinator and person and my husband and I are forever grateful for the time and expertise she brought to our wedding day. Thank you Courtney!!

If you have to have the best and want the peace of mind knowing every aspect of your day is going to go perfectly, or I swear you will think it did, then you better go with Fabulously Chic! Courtney is creative, professional, detail oriented and has tons of experience in the industry. She did our Decor and Day of Coordination, I don't have words to tell you just how good she is. I was speachless, like jaw on the ground speachless when I saw my reception space. It was like something out of a movie.
Think you cant afford it? Think again. You will honestly spend more if you try to go it on your own than if you pay for least partial planning because you will find you spend money in the wrong places on your own. All the vendors Fab Chic recommended were top notch, dependable and delivered a quality product. My wedding was unbelievable thanks to Fab Chic! Totally worth every penny and more!

My wedding was in Naples, FL and my husband and I were planning the wedding from Denver, CO. My husband and I are scientists and love doing lots of research before any major commitment. I'm also EXTREMELY picky and not afraid to speak my mind when it comes to things that I find unsatisfactory. I often come across as rude, especially to people who don't know me. So choosing the right wedding planner was extremely important to me, especially since we were planning a destination wedding.

I have ABSOLUTELY ZERO regrets in hiring Courtney to be my planner. I. LOVE. HER. She genuinely wants her brides to have the most perfect day ever. No detail is too tiny if it is what the bride wants. I started working with her about 1 year before my wedding and she made the process SO easy for me. I get stressed about the stupidest things and Courtney just knows how to reduce my stress. She took the time to understand me as a person (she even took a personality test per my request so we could better understand each other's communication styles!) and it makes all the difference when your planner makes the effort to make you happy 100% of the time. My vision for the wedding and my happiness (and also keeping to the budget) were ALWAYS a top priority. The communication was not a problem, even with the distance; she was always willing to schedule calls/video chats or meet up with us when we were in FL visiting. She was also realistic, which as a first-time bride is helpful because I have nothing to compare to. She will be straight with you. She is also a WONDERFUL mediator. She volunteered herself countless times to handle "mom drama" so I didn't look like the bad guy. She is a fantastic problem solver and I swear she is a magician. She is a professional, and just makes everything beautiful.

Courtney was my "wedding buddy" and made all my wedding dreams come true. If you are on the fence about Fab Chic Weddings, don't be. Choose her. You will NOT be sorry!

My vision for the wedding and my happiness (and also keeping to the budget) were ALWAYS a top priority. The communication was not a problem, even with the distance; she was always willing to schedule calls/video chats or meet up with us when we were in FL visiting. She was also realistic, which as a first-time bride is helpful because I have nothing to compare to. She will be straight with you. She is also a WONDERFUL mediator. She volunteered herself countless times to handle "mom drama" so I didn't look like the bad guy. She is a fantastic problem solver and I swear she is a magician. She is a professional, and just makes everything beautiful.

Courtney was my "wedding buddy" and made all my wedding dreams come true. If you are on the fence about Fab Chic Weddings, don't be. Choose her. You will NOT be sorry! Read less

Courtney was truly a find! Recommended by the venue, LaPlaya. My son and his fiancé
live in Switzerland and we (my husband and I) hired Courtney after she spoke to the couple. It was hands down the best decision we made. She is a total professional and went beyond the call of duty for us on many occasions. She helped with every detail and aspect of a complicated destination wedding. We had a unique situation with time, language and distance but knowing Courtney had our backs made it all run smoothly. She was spectacular to have on hand for the the entire day and we got her a room so she with us every step of the way. Not one detail escaped her attention. We all highly recommend her and feel very fortunate we had her expertise and experience for our event. I kept telling her "you are simply the best" and its true.
