Staci and her assistant Eboni were amazing throughout the entire process. Upon our first meeting she spent hours listening to our thoughts, then came back to us with a plan and vision we never had even thought of. She listened to who we were as a couple, our hobbies, the venue we had chosen and came up with a classy combination of them all.

Through the planning process Staci and Eboni were always responsive and helpful. She has many connections in the Tampa Bay area and was able to advise on things from flowers and make up to the bar service. Also, she was respectful of our budget and served as a wonderful advisor (explaining where to spend and where to cut back budget wise). What could have been extremely stressful, was eased by having a knowledgable expert on our side. Through the process we came to trust Staci and her associates.

As the bride, I didn't have to worry about a thing the day of the wedding. It rained and our entire plan for dinner outside had to be moved inside the day of. She handled it seamlessly, dealing with all the vendors and guests. I was perhaps even happier with how it turned out than our original plan. My husband and I really enjoyed our guests and our special day.

My husband and I absolutely recommend you to HIRE Unique Weddings & Events. Truly, the wedding planning service was hand's down the best money we spent on the wedding.

I don't even know where to start! Staci is absolutely amazing. Not only does she take all the stress away from you the day of your event, her organizational skills, vendor relationships, and truly UNIQUE ideas are above and beyond. I was very hesitant in hiring a planner and I honestly don't think I could have found a better one. She is very down to earth- responsive- and easy to communicate with. I highly recommend her and the whole process- if you think you don't need a planner your nuts;)

Staci at Unique Event Design was absolutely amazing. We had a year and a half to plan my large wedding. She was involved in every aspect of the planning. All I can say is none of it would have happened without Unique Event Design. I relied on Staci's recommendation for all of my vendors - from photography and videography to floral and music... All of her recommendations were excellent and she ensured that everyone worked well together. With her design background, she was able to take my vision for my wedding and make it come true. Meanwhile, during the entire process, her calming words and reassurance got me through the stressful times. She answered every one of my very detailed emails in a professional, direct manner, and she was knowledgeable in every respect. Not one detail slipped through the cracks. She even took it upon herself to learn about our unique religious traditions and soon became an expert herself!

She truly cares about her clients, and always adds a personal touch to everything she does. Without Unique Event Design, my dream wedding would still be just a vision! Staci even stuck by me after the wedding, and helped me craft a profile for a national magazine, which is publishing our wedding in print and online. If you are contemplating whether or not to get a planner let me jut tell you THIS one is worth it!I highly recommend them to any bride! BEST decision I made!

Ok where do I begin........Staci is AMAZINGLY AWESOME!!!! I knew from the beginning that I would not be able to plan a wedding on my own. After making a bunch of phone calls and gathering information, I decided to meet with Staci at where else...Starbucks. My mom, fiance and I were all there for the meeting. Staci took the time to learn about how we meet and our "vision" for the wedding, including, colors, music, theme, location, etc. She did not miss a detail! After our meeting, we immediately booked her. I cannot put into words how helpful, creative, and thorough Staci is! She helped me with every aspect of the wedding! Staci was at our florist meetings and at the multiple walk-thru's at the ceremony/reception site. Her energy is addictive!!! She was able to help me with my vision of the wedding in order to make everything come together. The day of the wedding, Staci was there bright and early to get things going. She took care of all my wedding items, linens, caterers, and coordinating all the vendors. The wedding day went PERFECTLY and I own it all to Staci! She is a GREAT wedding coordinator, very detail oriented, and doesn't miss a beat! She has such great ideas and was so much fun to work with! I cannot say enough great things about Staci! I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her to assist with your wedding....you will not be disappointed!!!!

Staci was absolutely amazing. Our daughter's wedding could have been a logistical nightmare, yet Staci's expertise shined through. I did not have to worry about 1 thing because i knew Staci would handle it. Our wedding was held in the garden of a bed and breakfast which required major logistical maneuvering of all of the guests as well as coordinating all of the vendors. It was absolutely perfect!!! Our guests are still in awe! Staci provided vendors which were without a doubt the best in the industry. Many of our guests commented how they wished that they knew Staci because of the fabulous event she did. Kudos to Staci and her staff for a magnificent job from the bottom of my heart!

One of the best things I did in planning the wedding was work with Staci Mandikas, owner of Unique Event Design, LLC. I thought I had most everything done on my list, but I was so wrong. When my husband and I met Staci we realized she was going to help us raise our wedding experience to the highest level. She's very detail-oriented, and makes you feel like you're the only wedding she's working on. On top of that she's creative, and a blast to brainstorm with. If you haven't started thinking about your table card holders, never fear, she comes up with the best ideas. When it came down to the day of, Staci and her assistant were a dream. They fit in with friends, family and other vendors so well, and were everything to us: time-keepers, nerves-calmers, vendor-partners...maestros of the event. I don't know what we would have done without Staci. Fun story! When our wedding party came up with a last minute idea to decorate our bed & breakfast room with rose petals and candles; all they did was utter the words in front of Staci, and "consider it done" was her calm response. They let the frantic worry of planning out their last minute idea, and when we came back to the room; it was magically romantic. If you're looking for someone to go above and beyond your expectations, and an expert to make your day everything it could possibly be; call Staci.

Staci Mandikas, owner of Unique Event Design, provided us with "Day of Coordinating" package. However, she did SO much more than that. She recommended excellent vendors that I was SO happy with. She also helped me design the layout and decor for the reception and made wonderful suggestions that turned out looking so beautifully. On wedding day, she made sure all the little details that meant so much to me were taken care of.

She met with my vendors and provided much needed peace of mind especially during the week of the wedding. I am pretty hands on, and it was hard for me to give up the riegns, but I felt comfortable letting Staci take over, which allowed me to enjoy my wedding a whole lot more! Thank you Staci!

With having a destination wedding I really needed someone who knew great vendors and who I could full trust to have my wedding turn out the way I wanted it. Hiring Staci and her team was the best thing I did, she never complained when I changed my mind on everything, even the wedding date. We had countless email correspondence and she always made time in her busy schedule to meet with me on the very few days I was town. I knew she had plenty of other brides but she always made me feel like I was the most important (I think this is a great quality with working with anyone.) She went above and beyond what I ever expected. On the wedding day she took care of every "crisis" without even worrying me at all. I think everyone should have a Staci throughout the planning process and especially the wedding day!

I am so glad that I hired Staci! She helped me out in so many ways with planning. Staci was very prompt in returning emails and phone calls, and we actually had two meetings instead of one. She recommended several of my vendors who were excellent. Towards the end of planning when I was getting overwhelmed she stepped in and handled everything. I didn't have to lift a finger on my wedding day. The day went so smoothly because of her and her team. If you are considering getting a coordinator, I highly recommend Staci!!

Staci and her team rocked! Everyone at our wedding commented on how smoothly everything went and how effortless it all felt, and a large part of that was due to Staci's hard work and attention to detail! I opted for the "day of coordinator" plan and Staci picked up where I left off without a hitch. She & her team ran the rehearsal and kept everything running smoothly on the big day. I highly recommend her for any large event, she has the unique skill to be very creative with the big picture and then dive down into the details to make it all happen. Thanks again Staci, you were amazing!

OMG...Staci and her staff was amazing. There was NOT one detail that Staci was not able to handle. She made my day a PERFECT one! Staci was running all over the place for me and my wedding party and never once showed a sign of weakness. At one point I said to one of my BM "she is going to have heart attack" and boy was I so WRONG! Staci and her staff were up and about til almost 1am with our LATIN PARTY CROWD.

Staci started all of this off with our RD. 2 weeks before the event I told her "Staci I have NO clue where I am hosting the RD". Her exact words to me were "Julie what is your budget?" I told her the budget she said to me give ok I will handle it from here. And she did just that...Staci planned myh RD including, location, food, DJ, florist, decor, and photography. I did not have to worry about a thing. All I did was show up and look pretty. When I got there it was absolutely amazing...something I would have never dreamed of doing. Staci has a talent like no other.

Now the day of my wedding...WOW-BLING it was! My theme was BLING and there were crystals and stones all over the place! From the ceremony to the cocktail hour all the way to the reception and exiting! Staci took charge and completly made my vision of an amazing wedding become a reality...it was unreal! Thanks so much to Staci and Unique Event Designs!

Staci was absolutely wonderful! I had been so overwhelmed before I hired her, and planning my wedding was starting to seem like a job. I was anxious and worried about all of the little details instead of being excited to marry the man of my dreams. She took all of the work out of it so my wedding could be the celebration it was supposed to be. She juggled all of the vendors and even added her own candles and decorations to the cake table etc to ensure that everything looked beautiful. I would recommend her to any bride who wants to focus on the reasons she is getting married and not on the details of it.

I would recommend her to any bride who wants to focus on the reasons she is getting married and not on the details of it. Read less

This was the best vendor we picked. Staci at Unique Event Design went above and beyond to ensure our wedding was all it was suppose to be and more. Having her the day of my wedding was invaluable. I worried about nothing. I knew in speaking with her that everything would be perfect and it was!

Staci was fantastic! She was my Day of Coordinator but provided me with so much assistance throughout the whole planning process. I slept easy the night before my wedding (really!) because I knew Staci would have everything under control for my big day. My new husband and I agree that the best money we spend throughout the wedding process was the money we used to hire Unique Event and Design! I could not have pulled off a perfect day without her.

I cannot say enough good things about Staci. We were initially on the fence about whether or not we needed a coordinator since our venue came with one, but it was one of the best decisions we made. I honestly don't know what we would have done without her! We hired her for just DOC, but she did SO much more than that. Admittedly, I'm a bit neurotic and I was worried if my "vision" would turn out but it did and then some. She made all these little touches throughout our reception site that just made it look amazing. We got so many compliments from guests about what a beautiful wedding it was and especially about our cake table, which was all her idea! She did an amazing job, both with organization, handling vendors, keeping me sane and calm, decorating and make our vision come to life. Hire her now!!! I promise you won't be disappointed!

I cannot say enough good things about Staci with Unique Event Design. I hired her for day of coordination only, however she went above and beyond that! My wedding day would not have been the same without her. She took care of everything that day, all I had to do was show up. I told Staci my vision throughout the planning process and she made it come to life on the big day! I've received numerous compliments on how beautiful our wedding was and I can truly say Staci contributed volumes to that. I basically handed her boxes of decorations and said "Have at it!" I was so impressed with everything that day, it was exactly what I wanted :) She is friendly, funny, prompt and very reliable! If you haven't hired her yet you are missing out.

All I can say is WOW about this wonderful person. Staci was the best investment my husband and I could have made for our December 11th 2009 wedding. Staci was the gem that made my wedding sparkle. Her execution was flawless and she delivers only the best. Throughout our almost one year of planning Staci went above and beyond her call of duty to make our wedding the most unforgettable event for us and our guest. Her attention to detail left us speechless. We were all very impressed by her hard work. But Staci’s greatness doesn’t only have to do with the way she executes the tasks at hand, it all begins with her wonderful personality. Staci was the only wedding coordinator we interviewed, and as soon as we met her she blew us away. Her personality brought life to our wedding planning. On those very stressful days when, as a bride, you are saying, “What did I get myself into”, one call from Staci and you find yourself wondering why you where stressed at all in the first place. She really takes the time to tend for her brides’ needs and wants. One example of this was when we decided out of nowhere, less than a week before the wedding, mind you, to change the entire layout of our reception. When I called Staci to tell her this while cringing inside, she surprised us all by showing up at our house, laptop in hand and ready to work on it with us into the wee hours of the night. She is truly the best investment anyone can make for their wedding. Not to mention all the money we saved just having her with us. The savings she found for us pretty much paid for her services in itself. If that isn’t enough for you to choose Staci as you event or wedding coordinator just give her a call, sit down and have some coffee with her and let her charm and beautiful personality win you over and leave you breathless.

We hired Staci as our day of coordinator. She was recommended from a friend of mine, and even though her business is near Tampa, and I'm in Orlando, we decided to use her anyway. She did not disappoint!

My mom and I did all of my decorations, table settings, guest book, found all of my vendors, etc. for the wedding. I just wanted someone for the day of my wedding to make sure things ran smoothly (so my mom didn't have to run around doing it), meet with vendors, and set up things, etc. so that my mom could spend the day with me.

Staci took over my vendors about a month before the wedding and did all the correspondence with them. (finalizing details, time frames, etc.) I was SO glad we hired her! It took the stress off me 97% (cus you know.. brides always stress no matter what lol). She even gave us ideas on how to get the most out of our photographer for the day off,.. all kinds of useful stuff!!

Since I had a specific dream in mind, I would set up the tables how I wanted them, take a pic and send those to her. (Yes.. I'm a little controlling at times lol). She printed those out and brought them with her for the wedding day just to make sure everything was decorated exactly how I wanted.

If you're on the fence about getting a planner, do what I did and get a day of coordinator. You won't be sorry!! Staci and her assistant Ebony, took the reins and let us just enjoy our day without worry! She knows her business. She knows weddings. She taught me (many!!) things about the traditions in weddings, how it progresses, tons of stuff! Thanks Unique Events!

Hiring Staci was by far one of the best decisions with regards to our wedding. She was very helpful throughout the planning process and kept me sane. I was really blown away on the day of the wedding. Everything flowed so smoothly. I really had no idea just HOW much work she was doing behind the scenes until that day. I was blown away with how perfectly everything came together. Thank you Staci!!! I couldn't have done it without you!!

Staci and her team were so helpful every step of the way! She was always available by email or phone, and when we were in town, she made a huge effort to spend quality time with us! It was of the essence!

The day of our wedding, I never worried about a thing. She and her team seamlessly moved us from stage to stage of the whole celebration; they were always calm, prepared, put-together and SMILING. This was crucial! I not only felt in capable hands, but in loving ones as well.

Staci was awesome to work with. I would really recommend her for day of planning services. My wedding had several little details and she ensured each part was in place to help our day flow.

I do feel that her partial planning wasn't as smooth as I would've liked it to be. She was not very quick to return emails and sometimes I went for weeks without hearing from her. I am a bit particular so I like responses quickly to put my mind at ease.

All in all she was a sweetheart and made our wedding day stress free. She added a calm to the process that was invaluable
