We offer a full range of coordinating services, from full-service planning to day-of packages. Our job is to work with the Bride and Groom in order to help execute the day of their dreams. We will always be professional and represent our clients’ best interests. We offer three different packages:

Simple: Day-Of Planning On your special day do you really want vendors bothering you with last minute details you have already discussed? Of course not, this is your day, so let someone else play 20 questions. It is our job to make sure that everything runs smoothly the day of your event, from set-up to I-do you don't have to worry about a thing!

Simpler: Partial Planning Partial Planning is for the couple that has a clear vision and doesn’t need much input. We make sure that your I’s are dotted and your T’s are crossed. We’ll be by your side throughout much of the process; ensuring the big day isn’t flawed by troublesome details.

Simplest: Full-Service Planning Every detail is organized, every meeting is planned and every contract is triple checked, with this plan the couple can sit back and relax. Of course, we never make your wedding ours but we do execute your vision with little effort from you. Leave your worries to us!

If you have a special request or would like to create your own package please let us know. We can be reached at simplysophisticatedplanning@gmail.com or at 941-254-1679 Read less

Working with Simply Sophisticated was the best decision we made to make our wedding day relaxing and beautiful. We hired Caitlen as our day planner over a year ago. She provided endless support, recommendations and stayed in great communication with us over the entire year. By the time the wedding arrived, I was so relieved she was there and I felt so at ease knowing she was handling everything. Her and her staff is not only there to liaison with all of your vendors, but they provide hands on service to make sure every detail goes just as you planned. No matter how much you believe you can organize your big day, the weekend of your wedding is positively overwhelming with family, friends, nerves and excitement. We had 60 people attend our wedding and having a great planner there was priceless. We can't believe how affordable Simply Sophisticated was for what we received. Caitlen's so professional and her sweet and caring demeanor had us leaving our wedding feeling like we had made a new friend. Endless thanks to Caitlen for allowing me and my husband to enjoy our big day together, stress free and loving every moment!!

Simply sophisticated was beyond wonderful in helping me plan my wedding. We had to make a call to get a tent because of rain the morning of the wedding and had no floor plan for them to go off of. They made the event look even more beautiful than I could've possibly imagined and did it with ease in no time at all. Everything from making sure the vendors were on time to the small details on each and every table, simply sophisticated is by far the way to go when planning an event. They were worth every penny and then some. I will definitely be keeping simply sophisticated in mind for my next big event!

I hired Caitlen as my "day-of" wedding coordinator and I can't put into words how helpful she was. During all the planning of my "DIY" wedding she was always there to review any contracts and give me referrals and advice. Caitlen made sure I had thought of every detail and that nothing was overlooked. The day of my wedding she arrived and made me feel at ease. I didn't have to worry about any of the numerous vendors I was using as she was in charge of them all. I got to relax all day with my family which is priceless! I used a Rec Center for my reception which had some ugly walls and such. When I walked in after my ceremony, it took my breathe away as I looked around the room. It was completely unrecognizable! Caitlen and her assistants did a miracle job on the room and it looked absolutely stunning! I couldn't have done any of it without her! Caitlen was there with me from the moment she arrived to the moment we left, and even after that to ensure everything got cleaned up and packed away. Thank you Caitlen for making my wedding day the best (and most relaxing!) day of my life!!!

Hiring Caitlen and here team was one of the last decisions I made for the wedding and I am so grateful I did. There are so many things that come up in the last weeks before the wedding and especially on the day of. Hiring the team really allowed me (and my mom) to relax and enjoy the days before the wedding and not worry at all on the day of. They handle everything with such positive attitudes and bright smiles (even a torrential down pour a beach wedding). They are FABULOUS!

Caitlen Murrell with Simply Sophisticated Planning was amazing to work with. From the beginning she was proactive, made sure to fulfill my wants and needs, accommodating, responsive, and all around a fantastic wedding planner. I couldn't have planned my dream wedding [out of state] without her. Living in Maryland, I was worried that it would be difficult to plan a wedding on our own in Florida. I was also worried about finding the perfect wedding planner. I found her through Wedding Wire and from the moment we spoke over the phone, I knew she was the right fit. She's young, modern, confident, and very passionate about her work. The process was very smooth as she efficiently communicates through email between her and the bride, and her, the bride, and the wedding vendors. She is very detail oriented and took note of/remembered every detail I wanted (down to the tiniest detail like the font of placecard holders). Everything was very organized and her "wedding day timeline" spells out everything that will happen at the wedding, when it will happen, and every single miscellaneous detail or decoration. I feel as though she went out of her way to answer my questions (because there were MANY), and ensure that I was happy and got what we wanted for our wedding. She also gave me multiple suggestions, recommendations, and ideas. She understood me as a bride and person and I feel that we had a great relationship while planning my wedding together.

All in all, Simply Sophisticated has been wonderful to work with. Caitlen knows what she is doing and has a knack for wedding/event planning. I highly recommend her to future engaged couples! Our wedding was amazing.

Caitlin and her staff at Simply Sophisticated were absolutely fabulous. I was on the fence about hiring a wedding coordinator, and I am now aware of how essential Caitlin was. I highly recommend her! She is professional, punctual, organized, and efficient. I did not have to worry about a thing the day of the wedding, and when an issue arose, she handled it immediately.
Thanks Caitlin!

5.0/5.0
There is not enough that I can say about Caitlen Murrell and her team at Simply Sophisticated. I recently got married on my husband's parents estate in Sarasota and I called on Simply Sophisticated for help because I was living in Chicago at the time. I am total type A personality and it was pretty rough for me to not have my hands in every little detail, but once we started the process, I immediately knew I was in good hands. Every email was answered. Every phone call was returned. Simply covered bases that I didn't even know needed to be covered. Along with their meticulous attention to detail, we received a 10% discount by choosing some of her preferred vendors, which really helps a lot when you feel like you are hemorrhaging money during the final few months. But really besides doing the expected work of a planner, Caitlen was really there for me. I had several minor freak out moments during the planning process about guest RSVPs, not feeling bride"sy" enough, etc... and all of my concerns we met with a kind, realistic, understanding ear. By the end of the process I truly felt like I had gained a friend and was glad that she would be there on my special day. My wedding day was beautiful and everything that I had hoped for. If there was a disaster or drama happening somewhere, I didn't know about it. Which was one of the first things she promised me at the beginning of the whole process. I only wish that during our thank you speech, I had remembered to take a moment to thank her and the Simply Sophisticated team personally because she truly deserves the recognition. My husband and I will be using her for every event we have from here on out (now that we have relocated to FL). I cannot say enough about how great Simply Sophisticated is!
