I hired Amy to be my coordinator for my November 2012 wedding at Dana Powers. I should have listened when none of my other vendors knew who Amy was...there was a reason why no one knew her! When I first spoke to Amy she was very nice and responsive. She gave me a "deal" of about $1,000 to do just the day of coordinating and a few other odds and ends. The contract included an assistant who NEVER made an appearance. She totally lied to me about having an assistant. I had to send her several emails and left her several voice mails before I could get her to help me with the things she had committed to. For example, I had to ask her at least five times to send me her version of the day of schedule. When she sent it over, it was incomplete, terribly formatted (no one could have even read it if they tried), and made no sense based on what our discussions had been. She was absolutely no help during the ceremony or the reception. The only thing that she did that was helpful is she cleaned up and the end of the night and packed up our stuff. THATS IT! Speaking from experience, you are better off asking a friend to help you than hiring Amy to be involved in your wedding. I tried to speak with her after my wedding to tell her how disappointed I was and again, no response for weeks. When she finally returned by calls and emails, her response was that she was out of the country and selling her business so my disappointment didn't matter. Don't waste your money or even more important, your time!

Fancy's......THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!
Amy and her team are the Best! My wedding was on October 10th 2010 and EVERYTHING about our day was ABOVE and BEYOND what we had ever Dreamed. Our friends and family are still talking about how much fun they had and how amazing our wedding was. Amy assisted us by retaining our venue for a lower rate than we were able to obtain. She scheduled all of our vendor appointments and took us to meet with everyone. She spent countless hours with us creating and developing our specific look. She enrolled us in super fun dance classes. She make all of our hotel blocks so our family and friends could share in our special day. Amy even got us a seal of a deal on a Honeymoon in Fiji.

We will never forget Amy because she made our planning so easy and we were able to enjoy our own wedding. Thank you Amy...You are the Best and we are forever thankful to you and your wonderful staff.

Fancy's Events is seriously one of the BEST things I spent money on for my wedding! I dont know what I would have done without their help! It was so nice to have someone else contact my vendors to arrange the last minute details and scheduling issues. As a bride, who had a lot going on, this was so helpful to me! All of the staff that I worked with (Amy, Corinne and Morgan) were so professional, helpful and attentive to my needs and the needs of my entire bridal party!

For any future brides, I highly recommend not only hiring a wedding coordinator, as it will help keep you sane, but I definitely recommend Amy and the rest of the staff with Fancy's Events! It will be the best money you spend, and you will come away from your wedding less stressed and more relaxed for your honeymoon!!!

Amy, Corinne and Morgan...THANK YOU!

Because I live in LA, and our wedding was in Santa Margarita, we really needed a wedding coordinator. Fancy's Event Services was absolutely awesome to work with! Amy Northcote, who runs the company, made all of our dreams come true! She is super professional, attentive, kind, experienced, and helpful. Amy would call or email me everyday to check on me, and update me with the progress of the wedding planning. She became in tune with my wedding style very quickly, and it was a piece of cake going forward because she knew what I wanted. It was a relief! I felt so comfortable and relieved that my wedding was in her hands. Not only was Amy amazing, she also had a wonderful staff! I got to meet them through the wedding planning process, and everyone seemed very experienced and willing to help me in any way they could. Our wedding was everything we had hoped for, and I have to say, it was most certainly because we were blessed to have met Amy Northcote.

I was not as fortunate to have such a lovely experience with Amy Northcotes Fancy Events. When we first hired her for $1500 she promised us a peaceful wedding where she would be there for me, and I could call her anytime. Well that was a whole load of crap! After she got her money, her services went down hill. She was extremely hard to get ahold of, and because she works a 8-5 job, she never went to any appointments with me. She tries to get you to use her not so cheap vendors, and anything she offers to loan or help you with, will add more money to her bill. My own wedding planner wasn't even with me on the day of the wedding. My mom had to deal with all the bridesmaid drama, pictures, hair and makeup people.

Amy was also extremely understaffed at the event so she could save money (she only hired 2 people), and started recruiting my bartender for help because 1 of her people left the event early. Amy also never passed out the wedding ceremony cards, so I was left with 50 extras which I just had to throw away. I bought small bubbles for after the ceremony, not one was passed out to the guests, so i was left with 60 small bubble packages. And i couldnt return the bubbles to the store I purchased them at because one of Amys staff member threw away all the packaging. Her stepdaughter who was one if the hired help was very rude and unprofessional. She (Amys stepdaughter) started cleaning up and tearing down the wedding hall before it was even over. And most of my expensive decorations were thrown into their boxes and handled carelessly. Amys stepdaughter kept calling my mom all day on the wedding day because she didn't know where something was or how it should have been set up. Shouldn't a wedding planner go over something like that with her crew of 2? The day of the wedding was anything but peaceful. I was extremely dissappointed with how little the wedding planner was there for me on the day of my wedding. I felt like my mom was more of a wedding planner than Amy, because she was there for me the whole day and helped me with everything. Amy was no where to be found and didn't answer her phone on the day of the wedding. I only was able to get ahold of her once because I had my awesome photographer call her. My advice to any bride considering Fancy Events is make sure you get whatever you expect from their services in writing. Honestly, I would strongly reccommend hiring someone who does wedding planning as a full time job.

Fancy's Events turned our wedding into a fairytale dream. The venue was decorated beyond what we could imagine and the ceremony went off without a single hiccup. They provided people to run the sound and an MC to help with the reception. We couldn't have asked for more of an amazing wedding day!
