Wow wow wow!

I cannot say enough good things about Karla and I can't believe how helpful/knowledgeable she was, especially for the price. I paid for the day-of-coordinator package with her, but that title is really misleading. Not only was she there to help execute everything flawlessly on the day, but in the weeks leading up to the wedding, she was there to meet with the venue, call vendors, attend my rehearsal, and engage in other various tasks in order to ensure that my needs were met. On the day, she was amazing. Always helpful, always there to assist, and never unaccessible, despite having a million things to prepare! My mom and I were both in awe of the service we received for the cost and the entire bridal party has been singing Karla's praises for the past week. PLEASE use her for your wedding, whether it's to coordinate the entire thing or just to make your life incredibly easy on the day. You won't regret it!

I hired Karla as my day of coordinator and she was fantastic. She definitely went above and beyond. I and met with several wedding planners and when I met Karla, I knew she'd be perfect! A little over a week before the wedding, Karla was already getting information from me in order to coordinate everything. My mom still raves about how great and how helpful Karla was - specially, on the actual wedding day. She was truly amazing.

SERIOUSLY KARLA???!!!! you Blew me away!!!!!!!!! I could never rate you high enough. From suggesting linen colors to running around coral gables looking for my green bag and chasing me through the streets with bandaids. Karla is every brides wish come true, what a caring human being. Great communication. I was at ease through my whole day because from the day we met I knew she was someone I can trust with the day of. She ensured we were always on time and communicated with vendors and each bridal party to make sure we stayed on her timeline. Thank you Karla for making sure everything ran smoothly and in fact it did.

Karla was amazing! She was very accommodating for my circumstances, which entailed needing a day-of coordinator. I was oblivious to all the mishaps of the day (according to my bridesmaids) due to Karla's mediation. All 9 bridesmaids (yes, 9!) complimented the amazing job she did for me. She had everything you could possibly need at the last minute, from pinning up the bow on my dress to passing small gifts between bride and groom. She was the buffer between all vendors which allowed me to savor the day and collected all the take-aways post celebration.. thank you again Karla, you were my Superwoman!

Karla was the best investment we made for our wedding. We hired her to be our Day of Coordinator, but received more than just that. She was an integral part of making our wedding as perfect as it was. From the first day we met her, we knew she was the right person for the job. She was on the same page from the beginning and knew exactly what we wanted out of our wedding. She is very familiar with our wedding venue, the venue's staff, and most of our vendors.

Sometimes we felt bad because of all the e-mails we sent her asking for advice. She replied to every single one and her advice was priceless. She was a great ally to have during our planning process.

The best thing about Karla was that we did not have to worry about a thing the day of our wedding. She contacted all our vendors prior to the wedding day and planned when each one would arrive to setup. She ensured that each vendor was aware of the timeline and how every single detail should take place. She made sure evey single detail was setup right and that everything happened right on time. She took care of things that we didn't even notice until after our wedding. Having this piece of mind during your wedding day is priceless.

We had the upmost confidence in Karla and she delivered even more than we expected. We give her all the credit for making our wedding day run so smoothly and coming out so perfect.

Hiring Karla as my Day of Coordinator was probably the best investment I made the last months before my wedding. After my wedding I found out there were so many things I didn't even have to worry about because she took care of everything. She took care of setting up, refilling the candy bar, timelines, vendor meals, payments, picking up, and just overall keeping everyone at ease and happy. She is a pleasure to work with, incredibly nice and very diligent and she makes sure things get done. I would definitely hire her all over again for another big event :)

Working with Karla put my mind at ease as she helped me stay organized and focused on the important details. She is professional, responsive and flexible. On the day of the wedding she took care of all of the details and ensured everything ran smoothly. If you want peace of mind on your wedding day, I would absolutely recommend you contact Karla.

I cannot stress enough how amazing working with Karla has been! I was an out of town bride planning my wedding from Tallahassee for Miami. I was a little unsure as to whether I should hire a day of coordinator, but finally ended up biting the bullet and going with Stylish Events by Karla B. and thank God that I did. Karla was so helpful with everything from suggesting vendors, cluing me in on proper wedding etiquette, confirming vendors, and, most importantly, ensuring that my wedding day was exactly what I wanted it to be. She relieved so much stress from the planning and execution of the wedding that I don't know how I will ever thank her. Karla loves what she does and it shines through in all her work!! This is the company to go with for wedding coordination!

Karla was amazing! There are not enough words to describe how wonderful she is to work with. I could not imagine my wedding without her. She handled everything perfectly. Hiring Karla was the best decision I made for my wedding. She made sure everyone was where they needed to be and made sure everything was in its place. She was so thoughtful that she even put rose petals in our hotel room. I am a control freak and I was very nervous about someone else handling any of the details of my wedding. However, Karla put me at ease and far exceeded my expectations. I found Karla on weddingwire and read the reviews. They are all true. She truly is a great person who does an excellent job. Thank you for everything Karla. Sincerely, Jessica and Craig

Karla was a life-saver! We live 2 hours North of Miami (where we got married). A week or so before our wedding there was an issue with our ceremony site. Karla volunteered to meet with the people at our site to help straighten things out! She saved us 4 hours of driving and what probably could have been a stressful convo with this vendor. Throughout the process Karla's advice and help was critical. She is extremely patient, organized, and professional! I felt that I had a friend and an expert helping me throughout the planning process. I'm so glad she was there to see me through it!

Karla was wonderful to work with. I hired Karla for my son’s wedding because I didn’t want to have to worry about details on the day of the wedding. She always sent timely emails, not only to me but to my daughter in law, following up to make sure everything was on track, she provided a timeline and help coordinate the rehearsal. The few things that popped up on the day of the wedding she handled diligently without worrying the bride or my son. She stayed until the very end and packed up all the things we needed to bring back home. We were able to relax and enjoy the wedding day without a worry. I would recommend her to anyone. She was worth every penny.

I frantically searched for a DOC for about a week and kept coming across prices that were waaaayyyy over my budget. In need of a DOC fast I posted on the board in hopes to get some recs that were more reasonably priced and still offered the same quality services. I decided to give Karla a try as many girls highly recommended her. She truly made my entire day a breeze. I was able to kick back and enjoy the day with my BMs without a care in the world that anything would go wrong. From our first meeting I knew Karla would be my DOC she was professional, on point and had some great recs for me. A month before the wedding and I still didn't have a make up artist, Karla came to the rescue with Jorge Pena (but more on him in a minute). The ceremony was running late and Karla handled the situation with calm which in turn made me calm just minutes before walking down the aisle. I had very little time to plan my entire wedding because we were moving out of Florida just days after the wedding so I was still sending last minute emails to Karla the night before the wedding. She answered them, called me and kept in touch! Ladies, the one thing I would recommend to all of you is get a DOC and Karla is not only reasonably priced but you get so much more than what you pay for!

Hiring Karla as my DOC was the best decision I made for my wedding --
I honestly do not know what I would have done without her. I was
planning my wedding from out of state and she was someone I could
always count on for advice, suggestions and to keep things organized.
She organized the rehearsal and confirmed every details with all the
vendors prior to the event. On the night of the wedding she was there
to take care of everything. I highly recommend her. She went well
beyond her duties.

Stylish Events- Karla Blanco A+++++++++++
Karla is an angel in disguise. I hired her for Day of Coordinating because I knew that since I had a large court of 24 people plus 220 guests, I needed someone to run the show. She definitely did that and much more. My family and I felt that no matter what we needed, Karla would pull it out of her bag of tricks and get it for us. She resolved issues with limited direction. She made sure that the wedding day---I had no worries whatsoever. She put together a perfect timeline and coordinated with all vendors. She was the last person to leave that night, making sure everything was taken care of, packed up, cleaned, etc. THE BEST MONEY SPENT ON THIS WEDDING!!! Highly recommend her!

I had to plan a destination wedding from afar and she was so helpful with local vendors and connecting with the venues making the wedding planning so much easier. Arranging shipment and arrangements of wedding items. She allowed me to have piece of mind as she was handling a lot of my details as my day approached quickly!

With a wonderful, sweet and professional personality, she is there for you, your guests, vendors, for whatever is needed on your day, helping everything run smoothly - highly recommended!!!

Thank you Karla!

Three words to describe Karla... ON THE BALL!

Karla Blanco from Stylish Events is incredibly organized, has a great memory, and is very take-charge. I hired her to be my day-of organizer, but I felt as if she did so much more. With weddings being so stressful, I was sure I'd see her eye twitch at some point during mine... but nope! Totally cool and calm.

I lost my escort cards an hour before the wedding and within moments, she had a list of all my guests and which tables they needed to be at, and organized a set of people to direct the guests to their seats. Later on I asked a few people if they noticed and they were like, "nope, everything went smooth, I didn't even realize that was missing".

You absolutely NEED someone like this on your day. Not only did Karla keep everything in line, but her calm demeanor in turn made ME calm. I felt like she was everywhere at once, yet with me the whole time.

This is an invaluable service from a great person. I couldn't be happier. :)

Karla did a wonderful job helping us plan our wedding! We lived out of town so it was very important to us to have someone in our wedding city that could assist us with our venue and the vendors. We were struggling with our church not responding to our calls, and Karla stepped right in and took care of it. She was delightful and professional and she really understands the needs of brides and grooms and special events! If you want to relax and enjoy your day without worry, Karla is the one you want running the show!

If I had to do it over, I would pick Karla again without hesitation. Thank you so much for being a part of our day!

Karla was the best decision I made for my wedding!!!! The day of my wedding could not have gone more smoothly. It was great to be able to enjoy the morning of my wedding and get ready for the day without worrying about whether or not all my vendors were there and setting up the way I envisioned. Karla made sure everything went according to plan and even made a last minute decision to move the favors to a separate table instead of having them on the guests' tables because the florist said they looked too crowded there. She consulted with my mom so I didn't worry or get stressed out, and I couldn't have been happier with how it turned out. Karla is easy to work with, very friendly, and a great leader.

Bottom Line: Karla goes ABOVE and BEYOND expectations. Hire her as your day or coordinator, and you will not be disappointed!!!

Karla truly saved the day. Our venue came with a coordinator who was was supposed to handle everything. The day before my wedding, she had to fly out with her husband due to a family emergency. Totally understandable but we were helpless without her. Karla came in, took over and rocked it.

She showed up extra early without me asking, ended up finding an error in price for floral and saved us $100 and had my event running so flawlessly. She is very organized, calming and worth her weight in gold.

Having a coordinator was one of the best wedding planning investments that we made without a doubt and I am blessed that it was Karla. She was a life saver that day!

There truly aren't enough good things that I could say about having Karla as my Day-Of Coordinator. I was planning my South FL wedding from Boston, and Karla made being a long-distance bride a breeze. From our initial meeting, she was already giving me suggestions and tips to help me plan my wedding, even though her services are contracted just for the day-of. When I was told a (high) quote for my ceremony arch, Karla offered to go out and buy the pieces wholesale which saved me a ton of money! On the day of, if Karla felt stressed at all, she did not share one bit of it with me. I can only imagine how hectic her day was, but every time I called her she was calm, cool and collected and ready to help with anything I asked.

At the rehearsal, I realized that I hadn't printed any of the pictures for my table numbers! Enter Karla to save the day - I emailed her the files and she printed them at home and had all of them ready to go on the wedding day.

On the day of, Karla showed up earlier than planned to start setting up. My guests raved about the decorations and the entire setup, and when I first saw it all I could do was hug Karla - she made it look like exactly what I pictured in my head. She took care of the dinner tables, candles, table numbers, paper lanterns, the gift table, table card table and guestbook table, the entire candy buffet (it looked FANTASTIC!), the ceremony setup (including building the arch), created the full wedding timeline and ran everything the day-of, and coordinated with all my vendors starting the week leading up to the wedding. I'm sure that there is much much more that I may be leaving out, but Karla made everything look so good that I didn't have to worry about any details.

All I can say is if you have the savvy to plan your own wedding, but you really don't want to spend your wedding day setting up and worrying about anything, CALL KARLA! She is so professional and so good at what she does, you will absolutely not regret it! I encourage anyone to get in touch with her and see for yourself!

Karla was amazing. If you’re still looking for a “day of coordinator” hire her right now! I was super relaxed throughout the day and a large part of that was due to Karla. Even though I only hired her for DOC services, she was super helpful for months leading up to the wedding, including in tracking down vendors and making sure they were responsive. The few weeks before the wedding, Karla was invaluable in getting everyone on the same page about deliveries etc. Then the day of the wedding, she called to check in on me multiple times (she checked with me to make sure that would be ok) and to make sure we were on schedule. She also had the foresight to check that things were going to go according to plan -- she asked everyone if they had their readings for the ceremony and upon discovering that my mom had forgotten hers, Karla translated the reading from our programs into Spanish so that my mom could read it (it was important that it be read in Spanish). This was about 20 minutes before the ceremony start time. I didn't hear about any of this until later, when it was just amusing instead of panic-inducing, and I have Karla to thank for not having to worry about that on my day.

I was told that Karla was very much on top of the time, and that is something that was really important to me, so I really appreciated it! We always ran on time or even early. In fact, after taking as many posed pictures as we possibly could, we were 20 minutes early to the wedding ceremony. I really loved having that time to myself to think about what we were about to do, it allowed me to relax and enjoy every single moment of the ceremony and reception. Throughout the night, Karla checked in with me and my parents to make sure everything was going ok. Karla had also done much of the room setup with her team -- she basically did the whole decor with minimal input from me (including filling up 30+ big glass vases with water and orchids inside). The room looked beautiful and Karla and her team "took it down" and gently packed everything for us in their labeled box after the wedding and put it in my parents' hotel room. It was amazing not having to worry about any of that stuff on our wedding day! Karla also executed our sparkler send-off and it went off beautifully. We got exactly the pictures I was hoping we'd get and she did a fantastic job of putting it together (I am told also with the help of Shannon our DJ, my maid of honor and of course, our photographer!).

Karla was hands down the #1 best decision I made in making my wedding a dream come true. I had to plan from another state, but regardless even if you live in south FL there's no one better to set up everything for you, give you advice/tips, stay in contact with vendors, and just be there to run everything as smooth as possible, then Karla. There were a lot of last minute changes in my wedding but Karla handed everything with ease and professionalism. My family and guests loved her and agreed that she was fantastic. Thank you Karla for making our wedding a day to never forget!

We hired Karla a year before we were to be married and from beginning to end, and beyond, Karla has kept us on our toes and guided us through the wedding planning process. The day of the wedding everything went smoothly and without a hitch thanks to Karla. There is no way that I could have done all the last details and tied any loose ends all by myself.

The day of the wedding I was confident that Karla had everything in control and had the luxury of thinking only about my husband-to-be and myself. Everything ran smoothly thanks to Karla, and I could not have picked a better person. Super professional and sweet, but most importantly, gets it done!

If I had to do it all over again, Karla would be the first vendor I book.

We could not have done it without you Karla!

Karla peformed day of services. It was such a relief to know that she would handle any type of issue that would come up that day. She handled last minute communication with the vendors, eliminating stress for us. She was professional, detailed-oriented, and her pleasant and easy-going personality made her a pleasure to work with. The only reason I gave her a 4 for responsiveness is there were evidently some issues with her voicemail/e-mail, but these were soon corrected. She offered ideas and insight and understood the mood and ambiance we were going for. I would not hesitate to use her services in the future! Terry

By far this is the best investment my husband and I did for our wedding. Karla B. was so professional, detailed and offered so much help and advice that I felt I could call her whenever I needed help or even just an ear to listen.

Karla is a truly talented individual. The entire wedding went out without a hitch thanks to her. Every last detail was taken care, she followed up with ALL my vendors before and the day of the wedding. She practically decorated the entire venue herself and it was more than I ever expected. Everything was BEAUTIFUL!She executed everything amazingly .

In addition, she stayed behind to help with the final clean up details so that no one in my party had to worry.

She was even stayed in touch with me the entire day of the wedding to check if any damage control needed to be done.

At the end of the whole thing, I felt I gained a friend instead of a business contact. Karla B. came highly recommended and I am so happy we contracted her.

If you are in search of a DOC or a Wedding Planner, you cannot go wrong with Karla B.

We hired Karla B. as our DOC after many recommendations from other brides... and she was well worth every penny. Karla was professional, detailed-oriented and always offered her help above and beyond what we expected. She knows what she is doing and she is absolutely great at it... and the sweetest person!

My venue turned out beautiful--- she did the set up of EVERYTHING (tables, chairs, linens, table setting, centerpieces...etc) the list goes on and on! Most of all we had a stress-free day since we knew we could trust Karla with everything- and she certainly proved herself.

I highly recommend Karla... do not hesitate in contacting her, you won't be disappointed.

I hired Karla about a month prior to my wedding and she did a great job helping me tie up loose ends, locate last minute items, and book last minute vendors. She is fantastic with communication! Very detailed and timely. On the day of my wedding, everything went off without a hitch! She kept everything on schedule and I did not worry about a single thing. I was totally comfortable leaving all my contracts in her hands. Everything was executed beautifully and I was able to truly enjoy my wedding. She's worth every penny!

Karla was a blessing!!! We decided late into the planning to hire a DOC, and truthfully I was very worried that if I left everything in someone’s hands that has not been a part of the planning process they were not going to get everything perfect. Well, I was completely wrong!!! At our first meeting she was punctual, on target and really helped me organize everything and what I needed. Also, thanks to her we found our Officiant. Karla really went out of her way; she was more than a Day of Coordinator. The day of the wedding I ordered 70 guest chairs and she went out of her way and made sure that hitch brought back 10 more since we were short, the room did not work right with the floor plan that I was thinking about and she tried to keep the same idea and moved a couple of things around which the room look bigger!! She was so attentive the day of the wedding, so had everything perfect!!!! Even my escort rocks, all my DIY projects, favors, and even the sandal bucket. All through out the night she really helped me out with the timing and even after a lovely mother nature incident she held off the garter removal and played it off cool that no one noticed. Her and her husband work wonderful together, I have no idea what I would have done without her. She truly was a life saver!!! And to top it off, when the wedding was over she made sure that nothing was left behind. if anyone is looking for a DOC, i Hughly Rec choosing Karla... this is from a bride that did everything DIY and is SUPER picky.

My wedding day went perfectly without a hitch, and I can attribute all of that to Karla. I know every wedding has issues, but because she was there I didn't get so much as one phone call from anyone on my wedding day. My family, friends and I were able to ENJOY the wedding, which does not always happen (TRUST ME)! Karla was by far the best money I spent, and if I knew then what I know now, I would have paid any amount for her. She made it the wedding day of my dreams and I know that it would not have been even 1/4 of what it was without her. If she is available and you are lucky enough to book her, you will not be disappointed. She goes above and beyond, and makes sure everything is what you wanted. She is literally sent from heaven!

Karla was so great to work with. Being a destination bride, she made everything easier for me and was my eyes and ears down in Miami. We could not have pulled our wedding off without her. She even added little touches that I didn't think about. We could not have been happier with our choice to hire Karla.

Hiring Karla B. from Stylish Events as DOC was the best decision/investment we made during our wedding. Karla and her staff were extremelly professional, responsible, and flexible. As far as the quality of service provided it was superb! TEN STARS!!

Karla is very accomodating, helpful, friendly; she is a pleasure to work with. Although we hired her for DOC, she was supportive and of assistance during the whole planning process. Two weeks before my weeding I was without a florist for the day of flowers (church, court, and myself). I called Karla in a panic and immediately on that same day she had set up an appointment with another florist which she even came to visit with me.

During the big day she was on top of everything making sure no detail was left undone. I recommend her to anyone without any reservations. To every single one of my friends who is planning their wedding, Stylish Events by Karla B. is the first recommendation I make.

Thank you Karla so much for everything that you did to make our wedding day so special.

Karla was kind enough to have a contest for a free DOC that we were lucky enough to win. However, had I known what I know now, I would have hired her for her cost in an instant. She is incredibly helpful, responsive, professional, and saved us when our venue was being a serious pain. My semi all-inclusive venue assured me that I didn't need a DOC. Now I know why. They don't someone to be an advocate for you and to make them do their jobs correctly. I highly suggest you have a DOC even if your venue says you don't need one. When your hair is falling out, Karla will have hairspray for you. When your dress gets a stain, Karla will be able to remove it for you. When you venue is being difficult, she will help you work with them. Karla and her husband were working non-stop at our wedding. She set up all our decor (I was our florist) perfectly and was able to work it out even when we had a change in location due to the rain. At the end of the night, they packaged everything up much better than I could have. It was so easy to pick it all up the next day. I could go on and on, but at the end of the day, Karla is wonderful and you will be in great hands with her.

Hiring Karla of Stylish Events was the best decision we made during our wedding planning. At first, we tried to plan the wedding on our own but quickly realized that we needed help. Karla came highly recommended from my best friend. We met with Karla one evening at Starbucks and felt an instant chemistry with her. We told her our vision for the wedding and she never lost sight of it throughout the whole wedding planning process.

Our package included "The Day of Coordinator" service only. However, Karla took time out of her busy schedule to accompany us to various spots around town to meet with vendors. She certainly went above and beyond our expectations. Karla promptly replied to all of our emails and phone calls. She's very knowledgeable about the wedding industry and guided us along the process. We always had a certain comfort level with her and trusted her ideas.

The day of the wedding a few problems arose with the catering manager which she quickly resolved and handled with great professionalism. We never knew there was a problem until she told us after the fact. We appreciated her effort in resolving the issues in the kitchen and not having to advise us of any negative aspects during our wedding. We were glad that everything was taken care of.

We highly recommend Stylish Events and encourage engaged couples to meet with Karla. We strongly feel other couples will feel the same connection that we did.

Thanks,

Zahaira and Andy Botett

Karla is by far the best choice we made during wedding planning. I love my photographer and the reception venue, but this woman was the one that made it all flow seamlessly on my wedding day. I am so happy we finally decided to have a DOC and that we chose her. She kept in touch with me every week up to the month of the wedding and in the last month, I think we may have exchanged about 200 emails! She is super sweet but still stands her ground when dealing with your vendors and she is very, very quick to respond to questions or issues. The day of the wedding I truly felt like a guest at all times. The days before, she handled pretty much everything, even taking on the DIY aisle runner that I didn't have time to make (which came out beautiful!). She was managing everyone. EVERYONE. She would come up to us and say, "ok, in 5 minutes you'll walk this way, and go up here, and cut your cake, and then the waiter will..." etc, etc, etc! She made my unruly family coordinated and set up everything for the ceremony and reception perfectly.

She is the queen of emergencies, doing and redoing my bustle (which came kept undoing itself after my BM stepped on my dress) 4 times that night with safety pins, handing out aspirin to whoever needed it in the bridal party and making sure that all our things were safe. She boxed up everything as if she were a fedex expert for us to take home and was there till the very, very end.

I sincerely feel that this is one of those vendors that you CAN live without, especially if it's not in your budget (she was soooo affordable though!), but if you can, get a DOC!!!! They're so helpful and will help you feel at ease at your own wedding so that you can just eat, mingle, dance and get your married on!

Karla actually came into the picture at the last minute. I met with her about 3 days before the wedding and did a total download session with her. I showed her everything I could think of.. told her all about Nick and I, our families.. practically our life stories.... The day of the wedding she met us at the civic center bright and early with her husband to begin setting up everything. With her help, Jessica's help, my MOH and her boyfriends we began setting up. Karla and her husband were fantastic.. they helped us to set up EVERYTHING from the lights to the tables to the ceremony and chairs.. I left everything in their care to go to the hotel to begin to get ready... When I came to the ceremony everything was fantastic.. Karla, her husband, and Jessica had continued to work hard while I Was getting ready and they pulled everything together. Throughout the night they made things ran smoothly and did a fantastic job... I can not thank her and her husband enough for all of the hard work they did...

Best money we spent! Super organized, attentive and just an all around extremely sweet woman. She herself got married at TRP so she knew all the ins and outs. She took care of everything and handled any issues that came up the day of (I didn't hear about anything until after!) Can't recommend her enough.

Karla from Stylish Events is a God sent! I know that my wedding would not have been as special if Karla was not coordinating the event. She is professional, a fountain of information, and always willing to help out. She goes above and beyond her duties. I highly recommend her services to anyone planning an event.
