Bijou Events, Inc
Julie is awesome!
She's super organized and detailed.
She really helped keep me on track.
I appreciate all of her hard work.
And she was extremely patient with me.
I would definitely recommend her to others!
Julie of Bijou Events is a wonderful coordinator to help plan your wedding day. She helped us through everything that we needed to get done before and on the day of the wedding. Julie helped me with all the "little things" that sometimes brides forget during these stressful times of planning a wedding. Julie was never overbearing and always supported my decisions in my choices of vendors. Julie was always there to talk whether it was via phone, email, or in person. I knew that no metter what time of the day, Julie always told me that I could call her with any problems or ideas that I may encounter. I couldn't think of a better coordinator to have during this special time of my life. Not only does Julie provide you with vendors, and ideas, but she is there as a support system for you in times of need. I highly recommend Julie and Bijou Events
My husband and I live in New York City and decided to plan our wedding in California (guaranteed great weather!). We wanted a ceremony by the beach in July of 2007- which we found out was a very popular month...needless to say I was 3000 miles away and having no luck organizing this myself. I found Julie via internet (great website) and left her a message on her vm. She called me back immediately and spent a lot of time answering all the questions that I had. We talked about a budget and she had no problem saying "Yes it will be beautiful and in your budget." She researched many, many locations and never got annoyed when we kept saying no, she only seemed more determined to find what we loved. We finally found a location that was perfect and we almost lost it because of an employee error, but due to Julie's professionalism and expertise in her field my date and location were secure!!!
We spoke often over the phone and via email. I NEVER felt like I was not a priority, which is something that can be very soothing being so far away in the planning stages. I never really felt stressed or overwhelmed because I knew Julie was tracking everything that needed to be attended to.
All of Julie's vendor recommendations were terrific, truly a perfect fit for our day! She can read her clients very well!
We enjoyed working with her so much that I told her I plan to re-marry my husband every year just so that we can work together again.
Do yourself a favor...call her!
Julie of Bijou Events is a terrific planner. She walked us through every step of our wedding planning and was always available by phone or email. She was never overbearing and always reassuring; these two attributes are a real plus when a bride is panicking about whatever wedding detail. Her ideas for the wedding were generally very smart -- We really liked the vendors she recommended (with a couple of notable exceptions, but that's life), and she helped us add some fun details to the ceremony and reception. She thought of everything and had great advice about traditions, timelines, finances, etc. She is able to be at once flexible and a rock. A rubber rock? I don't know. Anyway, she's to be recommended highly.
