Thank you so much Sylvia and Cole for allowing me to be apart of your wedding day. It was a pleasure to meet your family and friends and to help you celebrate such an important day in your life. The special things that you choose like the helicopter and aisle runner will always be fond memories for me of your wedding. Take care.
Maria and her team (Maria, Nikki and Tony) provided excellent service. Her professionalism was above and beyond any vendor I have ever dealt with. All emails were responded to immediately (even when Maria was on vacation). Maria helped to make our vision come true. My flowers were absolutely stunning, everyone commented on flowers, decor and my invitations - one word - beautiful. I would highly recommend Maria and her team to anyone for all of the services that she provided. Maria was a pleasure to work with and would like to thank her for the wonderful advice throughout our wedding planning journey!

Thank you so much Sandra! It was such a pleasure to work with you and Roger and I wish you all the best in the years to come. It was one of the most beautiful wedding ceremonies that I have seen in a long time. It helps that I love pink too!!
Maria of Niche Events Stylist was AMAZING!
I highly recommend them for your wedding or next event! They went above and beyond expectation and came thru on every little detail. Her flowers were SO reasonable and BEAUTIFUl --- my bouquet probably weighted 5 pounds with all the flowers! Not to mention the decor that just made my barn wedding the wedding of my dreams.
Thank you so much Maria & don't hesitate- book them now!

Thank you Gen, it was a pleasure to work with you and your family to make your wedding a day to remember. All of your creative ideas made this truly an amazing wedding. All the best to you both.
I used Niche Event Stylists for my day-of coordination, ceremony decor, rehearsal decor, and flowers. Maria is absolutely phenomenal. She is extremely patient and totally got my vision. I was an extremely picky bride, yet I was completely comfortable and at ease with Maria taking care of all the little details. She was always there when I needed her, and never complained about my thousands of emails or phone calls, and she always had the ability to calm me down when something or someone frustrated me. She never even got upset when I would decide on a colour or idea, than change my mind over and over just to decide on my original idea once again. She is extremely organized and on top of everything, and was always in touch with all my vendors. She was very supportive and full of ideas, always willing to help. I highly recommend Niche Event Stylists, you will not be disappointed! :)

Thank you Brianne, It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and your family. I was very lucky to find a client like you who was so organzied and knew exactly what they wanted. You would make a fabulous wedding planner yourself. Your wedding will be one of my most cherished memories from this years' wedding season. Will miss you lots. Maria
In the end, the over-all look of my wedding was what I wanted, the vendor made the inside of the hall look beautiful even though we forgot to leave a list of what was to go on each table; we basically left a giant collection of pictures, vases, flowers and other decor and she turned it into a country/shabby-chic vision. The chairs that were ordered were exactly what I wanted and the lighting she put up was perfect.
My only issues with this vendor were that I did not feel she really listened to what I wanted during the planning of the wedding and sometimes she talked to me like I was an idiot, but I don't think she even realized she was doing it. Even my caterer noticed that she didn't listen and pushed for things after I had already said I didn't want them (like event tents and a head table area/wall draping).
In the beggining, I had given her my budget of $1000 and after she asked for ideas of what I wanted, the first quote I received was twice that. She didn't seem to understand that, for me, a budget is a budget and there isn't always more money available, even if it was only $20 for chairs.
On the wedding day, it had rained all day but was warm out. The one-room hall was supposed to be closed to guests prior to the ceremony in order for me to have somewhere to go without being seen, but when I arrived guests were in the building and already drinking. I'm not sure who thought it would be ok to have the bar open before the ceremony so I'm not blaming the vendor; I guess thoses drinks will just have to be photoshopped out of the ceremony pictures >:(.
I had already positioned the cedar arch that my husband had made, and specified with the vendor where we wanted the chairs, rain or shine, we had supplied some white umbrellas to cover chairs in case of rain and there was a huge covered deck for anyone who really couldn't stand being in the rain for 20 min, but knowing our friends and family it wouldn't have mattered because when you live in the lower mainland, you're use to rain, & no one I know is made of sugar. Luckily the rain had stopped about 30 minutes before the ceremony which was perfect, unfortunately, the vendor still decided to move the arch, and put all the chairs on the deck.
The new location was not at all necessary nor pretty and left nowhere for our wedding party (of 10) to stand; on one side of the arch was a 2 foot drop and on the other, a concrete sidewalk and the side of the building. It also would have cut my aisle walk to one third and left me standing in sand and new grass seed. I learned about the change literally at the very last minute and almost had an aneurism. It only took 2 minutes for the groomsmen to put the arch back where it belonged and our guests were happy to move their chairs to the lawn.
My advice in dealing with this vendor would be to be very specific with what you want and what your vision is, and repeat yourself if need be. I'm a pretty casual person and was not always super specific but when I was things got changed anyway, so I don't know. Other than the couple things noted above, the hall looked great and I was happy. I'll click on "recommend" because the end result was a pretty hall which suggests that maybe she listened more than was previously evident, but I'm not sure if the last minute anger and frustration was totally worth it and there is no "maybe" option.

I am extremely happy that you loved the décor; we always strive to make every room and every wedding stunning. You did have some concerns, so please let me explain our reasoning.
I am sorry that the event was not planned as well as you had anticipated. We were not hired to be your wedding planner, only to decorate the hall and cannot take any responsibility beyond the Hall decorations.
My first quote is usually much higher than the original budget. This is to show everything that can possibly be done and allows the client to pick and choose what is important to them, for example the lighting and rental chairs that you loved so much may not have been included in an original $1000.00 quote.
I do apologize for moving the chairs undercover even though you had said “rain or shine”. At the time it was absolutely pouring, and I waited almost the ceremony time and because there was no one from the wedding family to consult, I made the decision set up the chairs under cover. I was aware everyone could grab their chair and move it back onto the grass very quickly if required, but to move and dry wet chairs and decorations under cover would be much more time consuming. I had consulted the caterer, marriage commissioner and the groom before moving your alter. Once again I do apologize for this inconvenience and chalk it up as a learning experience.
Where do I start on how amazing my experience with Niche Event Stylists was. Maria is phenomenal. Organized, thorough and precise. She is fun and has some really unique and lovely ideas. I gave her the reins to my wedding, I was out of town from the site and where she is located, living a province away, yet I had full faith in her to plan my special day. I was wowed. The wedding was more amazing than i had expected and I give credit to Maria. She made my day happen, took care of all of the details from rentals of decor, linens, flowers, invites, cake places, basically all of the vendors. I would HIGHLY recommend Maria with Niche Event Stylists to anyone planning any event! Love her!!

Thank you so much Terena! Can't believe it is finally over. When we started a year ago, it seemed so far away. I loved every minute of helping you and your family plan your wedding and would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Can't wait to see the photos. Maria
Maria was so wonderful, easy to work with, and affordable. She was able to take my theme (we did a poker themed wedding) and collaborated with me to create a marvelous atmosphere. She had great decorating ideas and even helped with the set up of decor items that she did not provide, which many other decorators would charge extra for. I even recommended her to my venue to recommend to other brides since I was so happy with working with her. I know you won't be disappointed if you use Niche Events Stylists!
Niche was great! Maria was extremely helpful at a very reasonable cost. As this was a first wedding for my self and my husband, there were a lot of things we hadn't even thought about and Maria was very professional and helpful. I would definitely recommend her to any bride (or anyone looking for help organizing an event)!
I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Maria of Niche Event Stylists on two occasions. Her attention to detail, outstanding organization and over the top hard work, shines within every stunning aspect of her events. Her commitment to excellence is second to none and I would HIGHLY recommend her for any and all of your event needs and I personally can't wait to work with her again!
I was hired through Maria with Niché Event Stylists for her client's wedding. She was so extremely organized and thorough, which as a vendor, made my life a lot easier. She was always there to answer questions and even provided a fully detailed timeline of the wedding day, which provided all of us vendors with the need to know details for the day. SO HANDY!! Then on our client's wedding day, I was able to see her in action, and wow, she is amazing at what she does!! She gets everything done in such a professional and thorough manner. Her attention to detail is like no other, and she truly cares that her clients have the day of their lifetime. It doesn't seem like just a job to her, more like a passion. I highly recommend Maria, and I will personally be hiring her for my own wedding.... one day :)
I have worked with Niche in the wedding industry and all I can say is WOW!! Maria pays so much attention to detail. She has very creative ideas that will make any event spectacular - in any location. Definitely worth checking Niche out!
Maria from Niche Event Stylists creates one of a kind soirees and events! It's always a pleasure to help Maria pick out linen samples and color palettes for her events. We had a blast helping you create a different look for each of your 'Chef's Tables' during your last event. Looking forward to working closer with you in the future!
