WORST DECISION of my entire wedding!!!

I hired Christina of Simply Modern Weddings to help alleviate some of the wedding planning stress. Instead, she added to my stress levels--particularly as we got closer to the wedding date. She argued with me about every detail I wanted--from vendors (she wanted me to hire her friends and was passive aggressive when I found other vendors I preferred), to the timing of the event, to the way we displayed our seating chart--just to name a few examples. Although some of her suggestions had valid points, there were other considerations that I felt were more important. Regardless of validity, I should not have had to fight so hard to get the things that were important to me. I dug my heels in on matters that were of priority but eventually had to give up on less important details.

She was unreliable--late to almost every meeting and had an unacceptably slow response time for communication. Email was her preferred method of communication, though she consistently had a 3-4 day delay in email response time. It got to the point where she was keeping me from being able to make progress. I ended up doing all of the work myself, and she became an additional layer of bureaucracy that I had to wade through to get something accomplished.

The day of the wedding, I arrived with my bridesmaids in a van. She called all of my bridesmaids away for no particular reason, but had me wait by myself in the van for half an hour! She didn't even stay until the end of our reception (the party ended at 11 and we were paying for her to stay in a hotel room that night), and we have not heard from her since. The list goes on and on, but my husband and I are most upset about the fact that we have repeatedly asked her for a receipt for our records, but she refuses to talk to us. We have tried text, email, and phone calls repeatedly. She has given us no explanation for her unprofessionalism, thus we feel the need to post this review.

When first planning my wedding I didn't have a budget for a coordinator, but as I got closer to the date, I realized I wanted someome the day of to take care of the details, keep things on time and to take care of any mess ups.

I met with three other coordinators and have to say Christina with Simply Modern Weddings seemed to fit the bill.

The day of the wedding, things ran smoothly. Christina took care of all the vendors, guests and of course US. My husband and I were very happy with her services.

I think it made a huge difference that Christina has professional coordinating and planning experience as well as training. I dunno how some brides hire coordinators with no professional training.

I give Simply Modern Weddings 5 stars for sure!!!
