The Something Blue a bride wears on her wedding day is a subtle representation of her individual style and personality. It usually goes unnoticed to anyone else, but the knowledge of its uniqueness, yet continued tradition makes the bride feel like a bride.

We help the bride discover her unique style and implement who she is as a person into her wedding. The engagement period is a limited time in a bride and groom's life, and the planning should be exciting and memorable! And when the day arrives, we create the design an atmosphere that truly celebrates the couple for who they are.

Here at Something Blue, we truly love what we do. We get to be a part of people's lives when they are the most happy. Getting to know brides and their grooms, their stories and their styles excite us! We absolutely love and have a passion for creating beautiful weddings.

I originally hired Jennifer, the owner of Something Blue, for a reception and a separate ceremony, then ended up firing her for the ceremony because Jennifer was not professional, detail oriented, and ahead-of-the-ball on every single aspect of the events, as I believe a wedding planner should be.
The list of things gone wrong is too long to include here, but here are just a few: Mistakes in vendor contracts, failure to respond to inquiries for weeks or even months, failure to provide receipts, inability to complete tasks within the promised time period, frequent typos in communications to me and to vendors, inability to negotiate pricing with vendors, inability to estimate costs accurately, excuses excuses excuses when she could not produce a result, did not listen to my needs and wants, in my opinion looked unprofessional on the day of the event (I do not believe leggings and Toms are appropriate for a wedding).
Even when I explicitly expressed disappointment with her services and clearly indicated what my expectations were to try to resolve our issues and help her preserve the reputation of her business, she responded that she indeed had failed to estimate timelines accurately, but also with excuses about how busy she was with other events. She never offered to put an assistant or anyone else from her company on my account, nor did she offer a discount for being unable to deliver on her promises. Even with 13 months of time and an abundant budget to plan, I felt she did not act professionally or treat me like a valued client.
Despite the many issues I had, the flowers and decor that Jennifer and her team provided for the event looked wonderful. The event went off with just a few hitches. My main problem was with the entire planning experience over the course of 13 months, not the event itself.

Something Blue Wedding Planning and Design was a huge disappointment. Jennifer was our day/month-of coordinator. She was prompt to respond to a beginning business deal, however after our deposit, questions were ignored for months. Jennifer's assistant finally reached out and apologized as our file had been overlooked, however she then fell off the map as well.
2 months before our wedding, Jennifer met with us to do a venue walkthrough where she had stated she would need an assistant AND she would need to stay for an extra hour. At this point in time she quoted us an additional $350.00 on top of our quoted price. I then went back to review our contract with Jennifer only to realize that we had no legally binding contract with her. The contract she had sent us was for another couple's wedding one year prior, and in the midst of planning the wedding, we overlooked this. When I brought this to her attention, she apologized, but did nothing to remedy the issue or attempt to send out a legally binding form. When I read the details, I found that in her own contract she states that "the costs of said assistants is included in the contract amount" When I asked why she was charging us extra for an assistant she said that her original pricing stated that we have her for 12 hours, not 10 hours, so she now wouldn't need an assistant. Confusing right?
On the day of the wedding, we still had no contract with Jennifer, and she showed up 60 minutes late with no call to let us know. Our selected service also included a timeline which Jennifer never produced. My wife had emailed her the night before with simple last minute thoughts (i.e. the coffee pot can go on the cocktail table). The day of our wedding, my wife receives an email in the morning from Jennifer verbatim "I definitely will not have time to accomplish this-not physically possible-I need someone to help me." We heard Jennifer acted very overwhelmed the day of and was unclear on her duties.

Jennifer was great helping me figure out a day-of coordination and floral package within my budget, and she put up with tons of long-winded indecisive emails from me and was a great help. On the day-of she was really helpful in adding little touches to the ceremony that really made it lovely. In terms of coordination, I'm not sure if my expectations were too high for one person, or our wedding was just too disorganized to begin with (we did tons of DIY stuff, with varied levels of completion) - I think I expected more in terms of keeping things running smoothly. There was a shuttle issue that was out of her control but that she helped try to figure out, and that ended up shifting our timeline. But unfortunately even when we were ready to go, she didn't alert the musicians, and so we didn't actually walk out to the processional song we planned. It all ended up fine, but I'm not sure about the value for the money on the coordination side. But again, that could have partly been our own disorganization and just too much for one person to fix. On the floral side, however, she KICKED ASS - I was so completely in love with my flowers, and got so many compliments on them, and the price was very reasonable - I was completely over the moon. They were absolutely beautiful! I wanted a very specific look and she not only nailed it but even exceeded my already high expectations. She has an amazing eye - very very talented lady, and super sweet as well.

Jennifer and her team made my wedding the amazing event that it was. I hired Something Blue, Weddings by Hand, as a day-of service after my fiance and I met with Jennifer briefly. She worked around my schedule to meet and gave us such great advice upon our first meeting. It was also extremely affordable!

I was so impressed with how professional, timely and efficient the team was. They made every detail come true, from coordinating the vendors, recognizing my style and vision, and timing everything to perfection, while I was able to relax and enjoy the day, knowing that all the little things would get done.

Thank you Jennifer and team for making my wedding dreams come true!
