I would have to say that engaging Jaime Bouchet of Simply Wed events as my wedding coordinator was probably the best money I spent on our wedding. I found Jaime's website when researching coordinators and recognized an acquaintance of mine who gave Jaime a stellar review. After meeting Jaime and recognizing her passion for all things wedding, extreme organization and upbeat personality, I was sold.
I engaged Simply Wed Events for Month of Coordination, but really Jaime was there as a sounding board and to provide advice prior to the Month of. Her services ranged from extremely helpful insight and experience regarding vendors and timelines to creative ideas to help bring some of my ideas to life. For example, I wanted to incorporate Wedding-Themed movie quotes into my table names--- Jaime assisted me with researching quotes AND putting together the table cards. This is surely a project that never would have been realized without her help! It was also one of the small touches that made our wedding unique and memorable!
Even more critical than the pre-wedding support was the "Day Of" assistance Jaime and her team provided. I consider myself fairly organized and together, but, on your wedding day all of that goes out the window. Jaime's extreme organization and calm and upbeat presence prior to the ceremony really helped me enjoy the day and not worry about issues I normally would have worried about without her services. A good example- I forgot the tips for the vendors which I realized on the way to the ceremony- Jaime took care of that seemlessly, which allowed me to enjoy the day.
I cannot recommend Jaime enough. She was a lifesaver the day of my wedding and I think it is money extremely well spent for one of the biggest days of your life. Do yourself a favor and budget in for Simply Weds services!
