Simply Inviting Weddings, LLC
We used Heather for our wedding in Boston last fall and I would absolutely recommend her without reservation. We booked her relatively late in the planning process and so many of the details had already been arranged but we wanted to hire Heather to handle a lot of the arrangements in the week leading up to the wedding and to control some of the chaos that inevitably occurs on the day-of.
When my mom and I first met her we felt she would be a great fit with our style. She is very organized and knowledgeable and readily offered recommendations and suggestions. At the same time she was calm and not overbearing. She clearly listened to us (while some of the other wedding planners we met with, we felt, clearly did not!).
In the weeks leading up to the wedding Heather was organized and did a great job confirming with all the vendors. She was always available to me should we have any questions or concerns and was great about communicating but did so in a way that did not put any additional demands on me.
On the big day, Heather was fantastic. Luckily there were no major catastrophes, but Heather was available to help whenever we needed her for all the little problems that popped up. At the same time, she was completely unobtrusive and did not add to the stress created by friends and family coming and going as everyone was getting ready. She also worked really well with the church coordinator and event coordinator at the reception venue.
Book her if you can, she will make the whole wedding planning process so much easier!
If someone asked me if I would use Heather Minicucci of Simply Inviting Weddings again, I would say 100% yes! Along with having great vendor recommendations,(who we were never once pressured into using) Heather was such a calming presence throughout the planning process. But don\'t let her calm demeanor fool you! She advocated in my best interest with all vendors and stayed on top of all details. Plus she is so sweet and friendly and it was great to hear \"I love working with Heather\" from any vendor we talked too.Most importantly, everyone says your wedding day flys by, but for me it went at a lovely pace where I could be present throughout the day and this is all because of Heather who I trusted so completely and managed our day so wonderfully and professionally.\r\n
Wedding planning was one of the biggest controversies for our wedding budget. I felt we could really use someone day-of to just help with all the little details here and there, everyone else felt I was throwing money away. Midway through the reception, my mom was so overwhelmed and so happy to have the help she came and thanked me and said how right I was to hire Heather! I know day-of stuff is not her primary business, but she's great at it. Day-of services start days before, when Heather was confirming details with all our vendors early the week of the wedding. She was on top of our complex transportation schedule which included many vehicles with many pickup/dropoff times, all-the-while managing the timing of the ceremony, transferring decor to the reception site, and helping with formal pictures. WHAT A RELIEF to have her there! She came to our rehearsal to meet the parents and bridal party, and on wedding day she was managing us all without being intrusive or conspicuous at all. My one critique would be on her assistant, I sometimes felt the assistant wasn't helping as much as she could have... was chatting elsewhere when she was supposed to be watching the card basket, but perhaps that's because she's learning. In any event... Heather/Simply Inviting Weddings are well worth the cost. Super organized and very professional, yet calm and relaxed (a welcome presence in the midst of an unavoidably-stressful affair). Do yourself the favor and hire the help!
rom the moment we decided to hire Heather, we were thrilled with our decision. It gave me peace of mind to know that we had her help & guidance during the planning process. Heather is warm, professional, easy to work with and dedicated to making each wedding unique and personal. She found us great vendors, helped with negotiating and price checking and was always there to help answer our questions.
Heather listens to what you want and tailors her recommendations to your style & preferences. Our Wedding was outdoors and we really wanted a classic "New England" tented Reception. The vendors she put us in touch with were all so nice and were a great fit for us.
I was in awe on the wedding day at how Heather understood my vision and helped create the event I had imagined. All of the details were perfect including the escort cards, menu cards and custom favors! Heather has a calming presence and doesn't get frazzled even if something goes wrong. We were very nervous about having a rain plan and she ordered umbrellas to have on hand "just in case." She has great working relationships with all of the local vendors (caterer, tent company, florist, rentals, etc.) and is very organized. Her timelines kept us on track and focused throughout the planning process.
I cannot recommend Heather and Simply Inviting Weddings enough. We couldn't have done it without her and her team! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all of your hard work, patience and the countless hours spent on the phone and emailing everyone to make sure our day was perfect!
Heather from Simply Inviting Weddings made the vision I had for my wedding day a reality! Always professional and considerate, she was there to help me every step of the way and give me great advice. As many brides know, planning your wedding can be a bit stressful and overwhelming, but a Heather made the planning process fun and kept us organized! I would recommend their services to any bride looking for a coordinator that will go above and beyond to make your wedding everything you could ever hope for and more! We planned our wedding from the West Coast and it was helpful to have someone locally in Boston to communicate with all of our vendors, keep track of our timeline/ budget and coordinate the Wedding day from start to finish.
We worked with Heather for our wedding in May and chose the "wedding mentor" coordination package. From the moment we met Heather, we knew that she was going to make the wedding great! She was so friendly, organized, helpful, resourceful and full of creative ideas. Because of Heather, we were able to assemble a great team of vendors on our wedding day - we loved each and every one of them! In terms of the wedding day itself, Heather executed everything flawlessly. If something went wrong, I didn't hear about it. We really appreciated how she was able to oversee everything so efficiently. Heather and her assistant made our wedding day go by without a hitch. We trusted them both with all the details (and all the big things too) and everything turned out exactly as I pictured it! They also offered to help assemble our out of town welcome bags and deliver them to the hotels for our out of town guests. We would definitely recommend Simply Inviting Weddings to other couples!
Heather at Simply Inviting Weddings was the best money we spent for our wedding. My husband was less than pleased when I devoted part of our budget to a wedding planner, but by the end he was eating his words.
Heather introduced us to many vendors and was able to offer guidance on all things wedding. She was never pushy about using her vendor recommendations. Some of them we ended up going with and some we did not. She came to every meeting we had with our vendors and asked questions and brought up points my husband and I would not have even thought of. The week of the wedding she did all my heavy lifting. She contacted all my vendors to confirm, created my out of town gift bags (and brought them to the hotel), she did all my escort cards, mailed out all my invitations (this was a before) and the list goes on and on. The piece of mind of having someone else handle all those little things was such a relief. I barely had any stress planning my wedding.
My only complaint (and its minor) was the sometimes she did not e-mail me back as quickly as I would have liked. And just to be fair this was maybe about six months before the wedding. As my date got closer she always got back to me promptly.
My suggestion? Run and book Heather as your wedding planner. She is excellent!
Simply Inviting Weddings was an absolute pleasure to work with. Extremely talented and knowledgeable, they remove all stress and anxiety from the wedding planning process. Simply Inviting Weddings not only understood the vision I had for my wedding; they took it to a level that exceeded my highest expectations. I would recommend them to any bride-to-be.
Heather is a fantastic wedding planner! I got married in Duxbury and had to plan my wedding from Chicago. Heather was instrumental in making my wedding such a beautiful day. She is professional, has great recommendations for vendors, amazingly beautiful ideas for wedding decorations and invitations and is truly a pleasure to work with. Both my parents and I couldn't have been happier with our experience working with Heather.
I worked with Heather to plan my Wedding and she was amazing! She kept us organized and offered great suggestions throughout the process. She was able to pull together a team of vendors to help carry out our Wedding vision. I would highly recommend working with a wedding planner since it allowed my fiance and I to enjoy the whole process. I knew that on the day of the Wedding, Heather was there to handle any situation that came up. Our guests had a blast and we are still getting compliments about all of the fabulous wedding details.
Heather was great to work with. She helped me to pull my vision of my wedding together, and was so easy to work with. There was nothing Heather wouldn't do to make my life easier during the planning!
I have worked with Heather on several different client projects ranging from monograms, to save the dates, custom invitations and custom wedding accessories such as programs and out of town newsletters. Such a pleasure to work with!
I've been lucky enough to work with Heather on 2 different weddings and her understanding of the perfect wedding day is top notch! It's her great attitude, and attention to details that make the day a one of a kind event. She is the ultimate advocate for the busy bride!
Simply Inviting Weddings absolutely does a phenomenal job from my standpoint as a photographer. Highly Highly recommended!!!
We simply love working with Heather from Simply Inviting Weddings. Every wedding we have done with her is perfectly orchestrated and beautifully designed. Heather is detailed, professional and always has her client's best interest at heart. We would highly recommend Simply Inviting Weddings and are delighted when our client's use their services.
Heather is a joy to work with. She is calm and organized, and just seems to "get it" with her brides, so the whole day runs smooth. The weddings we have done together never had a single problem. One professional to another, I would recommend Heather in a heartbeat to any bride who needs any amount of help in planning her big day.
We are Heather's biggest fan. She keeps all the details in order and keeps her cool under pressure. What we always love about a good planner is when they are so in tune with the vendors they work with and they allow for adjustments in schedule for that one last photo by the water, or one more hug and kiss in the recieving line. It's fantastic to keep to a tight schedule, but it takes real skill to maneuver around a wedding days little delays.
I've worked with Heather several times and have always had good experiences. She's organized and detail oriented. As the leader of a chamber music ensemble, I depend on Heather to give "good" cues for the processionals. She runs a "tight ship" so everything runs smoothly.
Heather is great to work with. She is detail oriented, creative and manages the stress of the wedding planning process for her clients, allowing them to enjoy all of the special moments leading up to and on the day of their wedding.
I've worked with Heather from Simply Inviting many times in the past and she is truly one of the nicest and most detail oriented professionals in the business. She really gets to know her clients' personalities and puts all of her efforts in to creating a day that is true to their vision. I am always at ease working on a wedding Heather is coordinating because I know everything will be organized and beautiful!
