I give Margarette "Margo" Shorter a flat zero. I sued her in court and won all of the money I paid her plus more. Please remember that your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and once it is done there is no do over. She was very unorganized, late, unprofessional and not dependable throughout the entire time we were using her services. We paid her in full a month ahead of schedule and after the final payment was made she started making excuses that her car was broke and we did not see her 7 weeks before our wedding. She was however still able to go on vacation during that time as well. She took our money and she took advantage of us. My wedding is a memory I would like to forget. She even had the nerve to ask us for more money to hire additional assistants and her contract states this is already included in her fees. She used my family to help set up and clean up before and after the wedding. She had my niece doing the job we paid her and the assistants to do during the wedding cermony. She did not decorate the church and the reception hall as she was so unorganized that hardly anything was done. I was never so embarrassed in all of my life. She forgot my non alcoholic champayne at her house so we used tea for toasting. Not only that but I had to ask her for my all of my wedding items back and when I did she told me she disgarded some of them and put them in the trash. Those items are memories I can never get back. Margo knows nothing about being a wedding planner but she is a great con artist. I would not refer her to my worst enemy. If you use her services I promise you will be very dissappointed. You really are better off doing it yourself, let your family help you and save the money. If you have to have a wedding planner please hire a real professional. Trust me, Margo is not it. Thank you for reading my review. I hope you have the wedding of your dreams!

Your last equitte banquet was so beautifully decorated. I know the parents and students alike appreciated a first class job.

Margo did a wonderful job coordinating our wedding ceremony and reception.

I would recommend that the assistants also know the order of service at the reception. Margo was trying to take care of a lot of things and her assistants were not very clear on the way things were running at the reception.

Decoration services were wonderful and overall everything turned out very nicely.

I would definitely recommend Margo!

Margo was very unprepared and unorganized. I would not recommend her to anyone, you will be better off finding someone else or doing it yourself since she will have your bridal party helping anyway

You-Nique Weddings responded with the following comments:

I would like to respond to this crazy review on my webpage because this person did not get their facts straight. First, I didn't conduct a wedding on July 1st. But if this person is talking about the July 24th wedding. Here are the actual facts...Two of the clean up staff had to leave early due to emergencies so there was not enough staff available to clean the facility at the allotted time. So I chose to jump in and help clean off the tables. If we were not out of hall by a certain time my client would have had to pay an additional $200.00.
Well I didn't want that to happen so YES I did help clean off the tables and because they had a good group of family and friends(which included some Bridesmaids) they willingly chipped in to help too.

You see, I am a go getter and I am definitely not the type of person that will sit around complaining about a problem, instead I come up with a solution quickly and do everything I can to fix the problem. That's what an outstanding Wedding Planner does. I did what ever it took to please my client.....at the end no additional fee was charged!!

Margo planned and implemented the decorations for my son's tailgate theme rehearsal dinner for 85. She did a wonderful job and was very professional. She was very easy to work with, as we are in Illinois and the event was at the Omni Hotel in Richmond VA. She had worked with others at the Omni and the hotel was very willing to work with her again. I would highly recommend Margo for your event.

My wedding day was without - stress thanks to my wedding planner. All I had to do was smile and say I do! I loved the attention to all of the shades of Fuschia matching - - from the cake to the table decor, wedding decorations, etc. She coordinated all of the vendors and program participants so I didn't have to worry with that mammoth task. I was a very picky bride and she remained calm which helped me :)

Margo made our special magnificent. The thing that set her apart from the rest of the wedding planners were the extra small things and attention to detail. She and her assistant were amazing. Our day was problem free and the decorations looked amazing. My hat is off to you, Margo and You-Nique Services.

Thanks Margo for making our day absolutely wonderful!!! I am glad my girlfriend referred me to you because I could not have chosen a more detailed, professional Wedding Planner for my wedding. Also, the invitations, party favors and decorations you created was also a big hit.
Thanks again and best of luck in the future!
