    The best wedding planner you could hire

    Monica Caesar is simply the best. She helped us navigate the pandemic and plan and then re-plan 3 different weddings over 2 years in 3 different cities. We originally hired Monica for her destination wedding expertise (our first wedding was supposed to be in Cancun) and she helped us choose the perfect resort and travel package for our needs, providing expert advice on resorts we never would have known about. She had trained many of the staff at the resort we were hosting at, which was an added bonus as they gave us special attention. From her years in the industry, she always knew the right questions to ask and when, and what to expect of different vendors. She was able to easily deal with difficult vendors and always gave us her honest opinion on prices and value based on her industry knowledge. You will never meet someone more organized and detail oriented, nor someone who writes more professional and clear emails. She always had a huge amount of enthusiasm and energy, and always made us feel like we were her only clients. And...Monica even had an amazing way of making a 3 hour planning meeting be fun and effortless!

    For the wedding celebration that we finally got to have, Monica helped us plan a wedding during COVID in less than 3 months, which consisted of 3 large separate events with 200+ people in Calgary, Alberta. She helped us navigate last minute (day before!!) pandemic restrictions with ease, even drafting us perfect emails to send to our guests and negotiating with our venues and vendors. Every single guest raved at how seamless and on-time our events were and that was 100% Monica’s doing. Our vendors also enjoyed working with her and praised her support throughout. Indian weddings are not simple nor basic - they are intricate with many customs and traditions, and Monica navigated these respectfully throughout. We had many family members' opinions on how our wedding should be over the 2 years of planning, but Monica always prioritized my husband and I’s best interests first. Many close family members and friends commented on how relaxed we both were in the weeks and days coming up to our wedding, and it was because we had Monica Caesar by our side every step of the way.

    Monica is simply amazing as a wedding planner and same-day coordinator, but she doesn't stop there. She has been a confidante, a caring friend, and crutch we could lean on in our hardest times. Hire her!! You won’t be disappointed.

    Couldn’t have done with without her !

    Got married April 2022 in Mexico .

    Hired Monica in April 2021. Could not have done it without her ! She ensured we got everything we wanted within our budget . She knows her stuff and has a ton of local connections in Mexico. Planning a wedding during a pandemic was stressful beyond words, Monica was with us through every step of the way ! Any questions we had she got back to us ASAP . She ensured vendors provided everything that was promised. Wouldn’t highly recommend to any bride trying to plan a destination wedding !!!

    Monica Caesar was undoubtedly the reason why my wedding was a success. Due to resort reno's and other setbacks we had to re plan our wedding in about 2 months. I was unsure if this was even possible but, our day came and went and was absolutely amazing!! Monica is also a great person to deal with, very easy going, organized, flexible and understanding. Thank you Monica for everything!

    Monica was an asset to our wedding. There is just absolutely no way we could have juggled all of our out sourced vendors, and created the entire event without her. Our vision came to life flawlessly and we truly could not have dreamed a more perfect day. We are forever grateful to Monica for giving us a wedding that we will NEVER forget!

    Monica was absolutely amazing from the first time I contacted her regarding a destination wedding. I put full faith in her to pick my destination, wedding location and all the details in between. I had one request and it was for everyone to have an amazing time and see a smile on their face and she delivered that and so much more. So easy to work with and always on top of things! And super fun to hang out with for the few days she spent in jamaica with us!! Highly highly recommend her to make your life easier and dreams come true:)

    From our very first meeting, to our wedding day over a year later, Monica was an absolute dream to work with. My husband and I knew that we wanted a destination wedding from the very beginning and Monica was the essential ingredient we needed to make our dream wedding come true. From helping us decide our location (a beautiful working plantation house), picking vendors, and execution of the perfect day, Monica was there for everything. No request was too big or too small, and she made suggestions that we would never have thought of on our own.

    We chose to bring her along with us to Jamaica, and it was hands down the best decision. She not only took care of every single wedding detail, but also helped us plan other excursions, and showed us a side of Jamaica we never would have seen on our own. Monica blended seamlessly into our group and is someone we are all proud to consider part of the family.

    If you are considering a destination wedding, you would be crazy not to hire Monica. Our wedding day was everything we ever wanted, and it was all thanks to Monica Caesar and Aisle Plan Your Day.

    My Husband and I had the best experience possible planning our wedding. Monica was there for us for every question, every concern, even with our decision making. I would have never thought planning my special day would have been so stress free. Monica treated us like family and treated our guests the same. She was there for all our questions and even made sure she received clarifications on flowers, menu, wedding areas before we could even think to ask the questions. I would highly recommend Monica! I not only see her as a amazing event planner but now as a good friend, even family member. She always had a list of things for us to decide on and never let us jump around she kept everything specific and tight to the list. I honestly believe if I would do it all over again I would still hire her! I couldn't be more happy with our wedding and our experience with this amazing woman!

    Words cannot express how much we appreciate everything that Monica did for us throughout the year planning our wedding and during the wedding itself to help us plan the wedding of our dreams. A few of the comments that have come from our family and friends have been “Amazing”, “Beautiful”, and “Absolute Paradise”. Monica took the vision from my head and made it a reality, even more she made it better then I could have imagined. There were times when dealing with people that we had contracted that were beyond changeling, and every time she managed to calm me down and completely mitigate the situation. On many occasions I had said to my husband that I do not know what I would have done without her and that her patience amazes me. I truly believe that there is no better person suited to be a wedding planner then Monica.

    She managed to plan our wedding in Jamaica, to include 53 people from across Canada, and all while she was in Edmonton and I was in Calgary. I tell people how smoothly she made this process for Wally and I, and I honestly think that they do not believe me at times. While she was not in the city with me, she was always there via phone or email if I needed anything so it seemed as if we were in the same city.

    Through this process I truly feel that I have gained a sister and a friend. She know's more about me now then a lot of my closets friends, and I have trusted her with one of the biggest tasks in our lives. I know that while our Wedding is over, she will be a part of our lives in the years to come.

    If you are considering using Monica to help with your Wedding, you will not be disappointed!
