I was extremely disappointed with Jill's service (or lack there of) for my wedding. After initially hiring her it took her 4 months before she sent me "Kick off" documents, (less than 5 months before the wedding). She constantly said she was having "problems" with her email, and claimed she sent items or didn't receive emails from me. I had to contact her and email her for everything as she never reached out to me, and she would take many days to a week to return my calls and emails (even weeks out from the wedding). She always had some excuse as to why it took her so long to get back to me (the flu, food poisoning, lost phone to name a few). I booked her for the entire wedding, but she never came through on any of the items we agreed on, (itineraries, agendas, day of duties, confirming vendors etc.) She kept sending me itineraries that were completely wrong, they had us arriving at the church at 3, when it was discussed multiple times that we couldn't enter until 6, and travel time was not accounted for. I finally just had to do them myself. She showed up late to meetings, always disorganized and misinformed on what we had previously discussed. The fact that I had to contact her and provide her with vendor information because she never asked, and provide her itineraries, actually added to the stress of my day. She made me feel like a chore, when I was paying her! I even emailed her a month out saying that I was concerned that she was not very involved, she responded with "this is just the quiet before the storm," Ummm OK, there doesn't need to be a quiet or a storm - I hired you so the planning would be proactive! The day of the wedding she only had a limited amount of task, because I didn't trust her, and looking back at the pictures they were all messed up in one way or another. She was supposed to ensure the Church flowers were placed in different locations at the reception (pew flowers on the back of the chairs and on the curtains), which they were not. Her response after the wedding was over, was that I should contact my florist if I was not happy with where the flowers were placed! She knew where they were to go, and should have told the florist or done it herself. I gave her a very detailed seating chart for menus and place cards, some people said they got a kids menu, or no menu at all. Come to find out, she only made menus for every other guest, which was NEVER agreed on. She couldn't even properly fluff my dress before I walked down the aisle, and it was folded up. I asked her to ensure the large flowers were moved to the honeymoon and parents suites because we were donating them to a hospital, but that was not done either. Again, only minor easy task that were not done. Looking back I definitely would have spent the additional money for a professional wedding planner. A wedding planner needs to be attentive, responsive and organized, Jill was none of these. A simple email every week or two asking how things were going and if I needed help would have gone a long way. If you are looking for a planner, think again before hiring Jill.

I Do Weddings responded with the following comments:

Well, when Danielle originally posted this review I was shocked and upset because I DID my job. The first lie in this review is the "kick-off" document statement -- I have emails that can verify everything that I am stating and would welcome anyone's request to see them.... I do not even provide something like "kick-off" documents. Her entire post and with her threats to review me everywhere possible, I thought it seemed extreme and vindictive and it took me a while before I realized why.

Her original review has since been edited after I disputed it with Wedding Wire -- she originally made a comment about my facebook status - on the night before this review was posted I changed my status to state how I was not a fan of the pre-ceremony cocktail hour in response to something I had just seen on TV - at around 1:30am a personal friend of mine made a comment about how she agreed and knew of a groom that had gotten "carried away" - 9 hours later at 10:30 am, this post blasting me appeared.

I assume Danielle thought that comment was about her husband who unfortunately got so drunk at the reception he had to be helped upstairs and they could not make their final exit - but that comment was actually about a friend's wedding 9 years ago, 4 years before I was even in the business. But I guess I understand if you were very self-involved how you could take that comment personally, which to me explained her vindictiveness in reviewing me. I believe this is a personal attack, otherwise she would have written just as scathing of a review of the baker who forgot her monogram on the cake or the florist who did not arrange the post ceremony flowers where she stated they had discussed.

With that said there are a few things I wish to address....
I would be glad to show anyone the following..... the emails that verify the communication between us -- what her package included and that she received was what she asked for... And finally the FLOWERS -- Wedding Planners are NOT florists, photographers or DJs. You as the bride make the final decisions with your vendors and as a coordinator it is my job to manage them, but they are still responsible to provide the service you paid for -- Danielle stated the morning of the wedding please make sure that the florist has an arrangement on the foyer table at the church, upon arriving and seeing it was not there I called them... and they brought it -- and, per the florist -- Danielle was upset that she was later charged for it. You do not get to blame the planner when you try and scam something for free and it doesn't work out!

So, that is all I have to say - I really struggled whether to try and defend myself and in the end - I wanted to say my peace -- She had an amazingly beautiful wedding and it saddens me that when she looks at her wedding photos all she can find are flaws -- because in life and in marriage -- she needs to stop sweating the small stuff

I would not recommend Jill. My family is all out of state, so I had no help what-so-ever. I was really impressed when we first met because she asked all the right questions and went over everything we thought we needed to know. I hired her to handle all the last minute wedding details so I could stop stressing. I had already hired all my vendors and developed a great relationship with them. She was late to meetings I had set up. I was never given any options when my vendors had different options. For example: I never was told about different places for bridal pictures until my photographer asked if that was the place I chose and was set on, when I was told by Jill that was where my pictures were being done. I even had the cake vendor call asking where my topper was the day before the wedding, which was supposed to be delievered by Jill. My vendors had a hard time getting in touch with Jill, so they were contacting me. Jill did seem to "lose contacts" or send emails that no one had recieved and had a lot going on. She would send the same email after I requested changes to be made--make sure everything is in writing! My rehearsal dinner was to be planned by her but in reality, my groom's family had to contact the site to make changes after Jill said she had taken care of everything. The hotel for our out of town guest did not have any knowledge of the hotel block because Jill never arranged. To top it off, I had to pick up my belongings months after our wedding because she never picked some of our things up from the venue (one of the main reasons I needed a planner). I would not recommend I Do Weddings...There are more wedding planners out there and maybe a second interview would have told me to run!

I Do Weddings responded with the following comments:

I was so surprised to have the write this review of me, when on the day of the wedding and the week after the couple arrived home from the honeymoon -- they were so happy and grateful for what I had done. I have a copy of the hotel agreement and all the family had to do if there was a problem would be to call me -- instead they chose to argue with the hotel manager when I could've giving them the confirmation number. I am not the photographer, it is the responsibility of the bride and her vendor to discuss the details of their particular choices.
I was so impressed by this bride's acceptance of the changes we had to make with her outdoor wedding due to rain and had a beautiful ceremony, I never like to see a bride unhappy but sometimes that is just unavoidable -- out of about 60 little wire baskets I believe 1 or 2 were accidentally left behind and when the bride went back to the venue a month later the baskets were still in their restroom, my bad.

Future brides -- enjoy your day, embrace your marriage -- and don't look back a little things that may have not gone perfectly and let that tarnish your memories of the day.....

Jill did a really great job! She helped me with 'day of services' which was really a lot more than just the wedding day. She got involved about 4months prior to my wedding and really helped me finish up the last few months of planning and organizing. She had great vendor recommendations and stayed on top of everything with regular updates and reminders of things left 'to do'. On my wedding day, she was a blessing! I was care-free and everything just seemed to go perfectly thanks to Jill.

Jill was the first wedding vendor I booked... even before I had picked a date... but I knew that she was the right wedding coordinator for me. I wanted to plan the wedding myself, but really needed a professional for day-of coordination... Jill did not let me down! In the months leading up my wedding, she provided very useful advice and even helped calm me down when something was stressing me out. On the day of, she worked with the coordinator's at the church and reception venue to make sure that everything went to plan and on time. After the wedding, she made sure that everything was returned to the right place and all of our gifts, cake and other wedding goodies went with our parents. Jill was so much more than a day-of coordinator and I have since recommended her to all of my friends. I don't know what I would have done without Jill at my wedding!
