Staci is awesome and definitely worth the price. She is very professional and provides the highest quality of service. She knows what she is doing! We knew we could count on her to deal with any difficult situations when it came to working with the various vendors. The day of the wedding I was able relax and enjoy the day thanks to her hard work and expertise! I couldn't have done it without her!

Hiring Eboni at UNIQUE Wedding Events was the best wedding investment that we made. I utilized the "day-of-the-wedding" services in which she took over the month before the wedding to tie up any loose ends that I needed before the wedding. It was nice to have someone behind the scenes making sure that our day ran smoothly. If there were issues we did not know about it :-). I highly recommend Eboni for wedding planning needs or amy major event that you need assistance with.

Wow!! Words cannot express how thankful we are to have met Staci from Unique Weddings & Events! We hired Staci as our day of coordinator but she became so much more than that. I'll never forget the day we met her. She said... "You're having your ceremony in Tampa, and your reception in St. Pete... That's gutsy!" From then on I knew she was the perfect fit for us and could handle the challenge.

She truly was in two places at once the entire day (actually 3) because she somehow managed to stop by my getting ready location just up check in. Staci was so extremely helpful throughout the entire planning process. It sounds so cliche, but she would finish my sentences at times. She was able to put my vision into words for our other vendors.

We recieved so many compliments from our family about Staci. Any bride to have worked with her I'm sure would agree that she was made for this! She was always mindful of our budget which was so appreciated.

Staci is so kind and made me feel so special. But that doesn't mean she doesn't know how to put a disorganized bridal party check ;)

We had the most perfect day ever, and I don't even want to think about how it would have turned out without Staci and Unique. Thank you a million times!!!

From the day that Staci met with me at Starbucks I was impressed, she was so organized with her entire setup and not once during our initial meeting did I feel pressured to hire her she genuinely wanted to give me her feedback and advice and allowed me to make my decision based off my needs. Due to the size and nature of my wedding we agreed that Eboni would be the best fit for my day of coordination which I will say once again was a LIFESAVER. Eboni is so calm and collected and you just feel so comfortable knowing that she is handling everything. I was blown away by how Eboni and her assistant executed my vision for my ceremony and reception, it was done exactly how I envisioned it and maybe ever better.
You know it was money well spent when your husband at the end of night tells you that the coordinator was FANTASTIC and would pay double the money if needed.

Staci did an amazing job all around and gave me my perfect princess wedding. I don't know how things could have gone better. She did a great job with the vendors and hiring her was the smartest thing I did in planning the wedding. She took so much off my plate and asked so many questions of the vendors I never would have thought to ask. I would recommend Unique weddings and designs without hesitation!!

Hiring Staci at Unique to plan my wedding was the BEST choice I made as a bride. We are a busy family, with 5 young children, a business and a hectic daily schedule. We started working with Staci 6 months before the wedding, and put her in charge of basically everything. Staci constantly went above and beyond our expectations. I have a strong personality, get distracted easily and am a goofball 99% of the time, but Staci knew exactly how to "deal" with me! She hand picked each vendor based on our budget and style. Each time we met, it felt as though our wedding was her only priority, I am sure she makes each bride feel that way, The planning process was emotional at times, but she always reminded us of the big picture, what was important and what wasn't worth stressing over. The week of the wedding felt like a fairytale, and she was constantly checking up on us. Our wedding was more beautiful than I had even imagined, all because of Staci and her team!

BEST DECISION I made for our wedding. Staci is so amazing at what she does. I'm very detailed and I met my match with her. So refreshing to see. She took something great and made it magnificent. Myself and our wedding would have fell apart without her. She works with other vendors so well. She was there for me with everything. She went above and beyond what my package came with. Hours of vendor meetigs, our meetings, calls, text, and emails. She was on top of everything and more. Only bc of her was I able to relax on the wedding date. She helped me with the rehearsal dinner and coordinated a way for me to give my husband a special gift of me singing with our band. Completely worth every penny and I would do it all over again but hire her sooner. She came on board late after I let my planner go. True God send. We clicked from hello. Her and 3 assistants NAILED IT. Her idea of a secret transformation of the reception while we had dinner brought tears to my eyes when she gave us a private showing before the guest. Love her and miss talking to her. You will too

Unique Events, and its owner Staci Mandikas, is truly a one-of-a-kind organization. Staci is a life saver, a genius, a better investment than anything else I can think of for an event, and someone that by the time everything is done, someone you want to be your best friend.

I didn't think I was "the kind of person who needs a wedding planner," whatever that was suppose to mean. But knowing we would be out of town the week before our celebration, I realized about 6 months out that I might not survive having to put together a party for 100 people without some professional help leading up to it.... My partner and I interviewed several local planners for day/week/month-of assistance, and Staci clearly and immediately came out head and shoulders above the rest of the crowd. We quickly hired her, and did not for half a second regret our choice.

It should be noted, Staci is certainly not the cheapest planner in the area, but her rates are incredibly competitive and in line with the area standard. We figured we'd get what we paid for, and didn't want cheap service so Staci was worth the price to help us get what we wanted. We were totally and completely wrong - Staci was so much more valuable than what she charged. She could double her rates and would still be worth every single penny. She immediately, at our first meeting, helped us save more than her fee. Her fee, by the way, which was for month-of guidance and day-of service that turned in to countless emails, brilliant feedback, and truly a work of art on our wedding day. We could not have had the celebration of our dreams without her, from visioning to set up to tear down, and we will forever be grateful to her and Ebony for being part of our big day. Thank you so very, very much Staci!!!!

UNIQUE Weddings and Events truly made our wedding day perfect in every way. We hired Staci and her team for the “Month of Coordination” and it was truly the best decision we made. Staci was very accommodating with my schedule and spent several late nights chatting with me over the phone while sharing her wedding expertise! I always felt more relaxed after speaking with Staci as she assured me everything would be okay! Most importantly, Staci and her team successfully executed our last-minute rain plan and we truly couldn’t have done it without them. I highly recommend UNIQUE Weddings and Events to any bride hoping to relieve some of the normal stress leading up to wedding day – they will take care of everything!!!!
