From the first day we met Maria we knew we made the right decision. She made sure we got the wedding of our dreams and always went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied.
Maria was excellent and helped with all issues whether big or small from coordinating with travel agent to negotiations within our contract with the resort to helping us format our wedding, she was there every step of the way and always went above and beyond. Maria was always quick to respond to our questions and didn't hesitate to find the answers whenever we needed.
We had a destination wedding in Jamaica and had it not been for Maria stepping in and taking control we would still be planning our wedding. The professionalism, the dedication, the time and effort that was provided did not go unnoticed, we appreciate everything Maria had done for us. After the entire experience we didn't just have wedding planner, but we gained a new friend.
A big shout out to all the hard work from the Equisite Affare team.
If you're out looking for a wedding planner then look no further because Maria and her team are the BEST!Sent on 01/12/2019

She gave us the perfect wedding
I would easily recommend these ladies for any special event. My wife had a lot of ideas and our wedding was complicated because of different cultures. We ended up hiring Maria halfway through the planning and I wish we had done it sooner. Maria planned and executed our wedding perfectly. My wife is hard to please and Maria made her vision come true, which makes me a very happy man.Sent on 20/06/2019

They are the best!!! Well worth the $!!!!
I don't even know how to explain how much of a blessing these ladies were!Sent on 20/06/2019
They went above and beyond my expectations, which is difficult to do. Maria said she wanted to give me my dream wedding and for me to simply enjoy the day and not worry about a thing - which is exactly what she delivered. You don't get this kind of service any more these days... she's truly something special. Always pleasant, attentive, organized, problem solver, and in control without being overbearing. She kept me and my hubby on point before the wedding for our tasks/action items, handled all the coordinating before, during and even after, attended rehearsals and venue visits, met family and key personable.... and I'm sure she did a lot more that I am not aware of. She even made back-up plans for inclement weather and packed all items for us at the end of the day!!
We had a lot going on for our wedding day: 2 ceremonies, photos, reception, 1 DJ, 2 MCs, bunch of vendors, 2 limos, hair and make up 2ce, etc etc and the whole day went completely smooth, on time and as planned. The only thing Maria approached me with on the day was how I was feeling, if I ate/drank, and needed anything. :)
I'll always and forever remember Maria and Kerrie and they will always have a special place in my heart for all they did.

Maria was essential through our wedding planning process. She was prompt, flexible and made our experience wonderful! We had a lot of last minute changes and unconventional issues to deal with and she handled it all quickly and effectively. We couldn’t have done it without her!Sent on 13/10/2018

A brides dream vendor
Maria was hired on by myself and now husband Vick to execute our vision and plans for our wedding reception as our day of coordinator. Throughout the process she was easy to deal with and always had prompt responses when I needed answers. Being a certified wedding planner myself I will honestly say that hiring Maria on was one of the best decisions I made. She was completely professional, always on top of things and works well under pressure. She would be a great addition to your wedding day plans to make sure things run smoothly so you can indulge and enjoy your dream day! Thank you once again Maria you were simply amazing!

From start to finish the best wedding planner ever!
I got to work with Maria and thank god I did. My wedding was perfectly executed from all her hard work. The area where I didn't know what was going to happen Maria said she will handle it and it was handled. I am very pleased about the itinerary and great attention to detail. I wouldn't want anyone else. Don't hesitate here. Anything you are confused about or want a recommendation in any area Maria will have you covered. Works with only professionals.
Thank you for all your hard work and connecting me to the right people. I honestly didn't have to do much but use my brain. You've made everything go smoothly. Thank you!Sent on 09/10/2018

Thank you for trusting in me, especially since this was my first LGBTQ2 Wedding. You both were a delight to work with and always had an open to different ideas we had. Both your souls are extremely beautiful! Thank you again for including us.

Acquiring the services of Exquisite Affare was the best decision we ever made! We chose the Full Coordination package where Maria assisted us throughout the whole wedding planning process including the day of the wedding. Maria was a tremendous help. We never had to worry about anything. She took care of finding vendors for us - giving us different options to compare rates/services to. She also assisted in negotiating rates from vendors we like. She was very organized and was on point in sending us reminders and setting up a timeline for us. Leading up to the wedding, she sent detailed itineraries for us and our vendors. On the day of the wedding, Maria and Jacqueline went the extra mile in picking up the flowers for the wedding party (bouquets & bouttonniers and corsages) and delivering them in three places: church, my hotel and my husband's house...All the while ensuring that things go smoothly both at the church and the reception hall. She adapted really well to a last minute hick-up: dealing with different photographers as our initial photographer had an emergency on the day of the wedding. There were other minor issues as well but thanks to Maria and Jacqueline, the wedding went off without a hitch. We were in good hands. Our guests were very impressed with how smoothly the day of the wedding went - from the ceremony to the reception. Thanks again Maria for everything! We will definitely recommend you to all our friends and family! All the best!Sent on 28/09/2016

Made me feel comfortable. Our family loved her and felt the day ran smoothly.we got alot of compliments on the wedding thanks to Maria. She is very responsive and if she didn't know the answer to something, she would research it. She tried her best to accommodate you as the bride. She also helped us stay within our budget. Just to conclude, you need to use Exquisite affare for your wedding planning needs. Let's just say that I don't remember one thing going wrong that day. It literally was a perfect day. This service is affordable and worth it in my opinion if you want to avoid the headache.Sent on 25/08/2015

If I had to describe their services in one word it would be amazing. They went complete above and behind what my expectations were and than some. Even 2 months later I still have friends and family commenting on what a good job they did. Completely worth it; their price is more than fair. My wedding had a very small budget and they were able to work miracles with the limited funds that we had. Without a doubt they made this special day for my wife and I a perfect day.Sent on 26/08/2015
