    Such a dream working with this team!

    Other than marrying Matt, this was the best decision I've ever made. Our day was an absolute dream. How it looked, felt, and how we were able to enjoy as much time as possible with our guests was is irreplaceable. The experience working with the team at JYW was so good. Planning can be super stressful but having the experience, energy and connections JYW brought to the table was incredibly helpful. The professionalism was magic, always on time for meetings, perfectly responsive to questions, approachable and so super helpful it made me excited about planning, and creating this beautiful day with them. We had help with planning, decor, and day of coordination. Most definitely recommend this talented team!

    Julianne Young Weddings planned our three-day wedding event in Banff. Words cannot express how amazing Julianne was throughout the entire year and a half planning process and how grateful my husband and I were to have her and Aimsley at our wedding. When we were looking for planners, it only took a short skype phone call for my fiancé and I to fall in love with her energy and enthusiasm. My fiancé and I were living long distance and knew we would need her to plan almost every aspect of our wedding. From the get go, she offered us the flexibility to tailor her services to exactly what we needed and this separated her from all the rest. When we started planning, I had a vision in my mind of what our wedding would look like. When Julianne showed us our décor inspiration board for the first time, we were shocked at how she not only brought that vision to life but she elevated it to another level and made it more spectacular than we could have ever imagined. She always made a point to help keep things within our budget which was very important to us and all the vendors she recommended to us exceeded our expectations. This allowed us to put our complete trust in her and made the whole process so much easier. On our last skype meeting a week before our wedding, she reminded us that if we had any issues or concerns pop up, to let her know and that she will take care of it. She wanted to make sure that we enjoyed all the days leading up to our wedding day and not to stress. This one comment meant so much to us. On the day of our wedding, Julianne and Aimsley were on top of everything and so professional. Our bridal party kept telling us how amazing they were. During our room reveal when I looked at our reception decor for the first time, I burst into tears. It was so beautiful! I still tear up just thinking about that moment! You can tell Julianne lives and breathes beautiful weddings and this is absolutely what she was meant to do. She has all the elements of a perfect planner with intense organizational skills, creativity, and style. I promise, if you choose JYW to help with your special day, you will feel as thankful that you did as we do.

    Having Julianne and her team be a part of our wedding was the best decision we could have made. They were literally our sanity throughout the entire planning process. You don't think you will find anyone that cares about your wedding more than you, until you meet Julianne. She kept us on track, guiding us in finding our perfect fit for each decision, and always did all of this will so much positivity and grace. There is no part of a wedding that Julianne and her team aren't complete masters of. They made our big day (and entire four day weekend) work out flawlessly. Both of us said, "wow, we didn't pay them enough." We can't even find a way to thank them for all of the magic they made come to life!!

    The amount of work, dedication and time that goes into planning a wedding is quite overwhelming, and when we passed the planning ‘torch’ to Julianne a month prior to our big day, we were ready, relieved and excited.

    During our transitional meeting, Julianne made the anticipation and reality of the closely looming date so incredibly exciting, and she asked all the right questions. We walked out of that meeting and both said "thank goodness we have her"! When the big day came, Julianne was as bright, lovely and professional as ever, and was not only our planner, but a friend. She took on every role with grace and poise, and every task was thoughtfully executed. The amount of work she did on the wedding day was extraordinary. She is the hardest worker, and everything went flawlessly! We were never worried or concerned, and were left enjoying the day with our family & friends.

    A wedding planner is an absolute must, and hiring Julianne Young Weddings is a necessity. Thank you Julianne, so much for everything, and for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. You were born to be a wedding planner!

    XO Stephen & Samantha

    Nightmare wedding

    My wedding was nearly a nightmare to the point where I cried tears of anxiety and stress not tears of joy. Julianne sent her assistant aimsley to direct my wedding on the day of. I couldn't believe the amount of things that went wrong. I spent $26000 on décor alone and paid $6500 for their full day service (not a cheap service package). we agreed on an extravagant lavish grand entrance and head table with the amount of money I spent I wanted it to look EXPENSIVE and they said yes it will be. However, they did NOT deliver the grand entrance huge floral bridge which guests were suppose to walk under and be amazed and see how grand it was. When I asked them where was my grand entrance they said they could not set it up in time and some arrangements were missing!!! So I had NO GRAND ENTRANCE AS PROMISED. Then I found out that I had no gift box because they told me the minute my wedding was starting that it broke during transit. why is a company opening the décor last minute the day before?! they said this is out of our control and replaced it with an empty flower vase and said we fixed the problem. we will use this. Then when everyone started arriving I had guests coming up to me asking me where is all the alcohol? There was no alcohol placed on any of the tables! I started scrambling looking for aimsley and she said this was the restaurants job...isn't she suppose to be directing the restaurant and making sure the restaurant did their job then?! not only was this an issue but they did not set up our assembly line as discussed and made the space too tight that me and my husband had to stand on the left while the bridal party stood on the right so when guests entered they were confused whether to look right or left or to take pictures with us and then forget to sign the guest book and give their gift. THE WORSE PART WAS at the church ceremony in the morning I got out of the limo to be shocked that SO MANY people were outside watching me struggle to get out in my big wedding dress. I thought omg maybe these people just arrived late so as I walked into the church hall way I was even more shocked to see EVERYONE IN THE HALL WAY no one was seated!!!!!!!! they all saw me and were just as shocked to see me as well! but then everyone started taking pictures of me and with me and I thought to myself this cant be right. why isn't everyone seated inside the church??? Had to find out that aimsley and her team hadn't finished setting up the church and did not direct everyone to be seated when she KNEW THE ITINERARY and what time I was arriving. aimsley tried to blame it on my family saying she did try to tell them to sit but no one wanted to sit. I asked my family why they weren't seated and they said WE DIDNT KNOW WHERE TO GO. no one told us anything. so I essentially I was robbed of my one big night. I could not go back in time to get back the moment I wanted to where everyone can have that first look in my princess dress and go "ahhh wow" while I was walking down the aisle. there were other things that also went wrong but these were the biggest ones. I would not recommend this company

    Julianne Young Weddings's reply:

    We sincerely apologize that you didn’t have the perfect wedding day you were dreaming of as that is our goal as a company, and we absolutely take your feedback seriously. Respectfully, as detailed in prior conversations, many of the concerns you’ve raised are either fully or in part not factual.

    You were issued a refund for decor that you weren’t happy with plus a refund on services was given in good faith despite the fact that we met each deliverable in our contract. We kindly wish to remind you as stated in our contract, your wedding planner cannot guarantee a seamless day without your vendors also doing their jobs, and sadly that many of these issues are outside the scope of what a wedding planner can be held accountable for.

    To specify a few points - your reception venue was reminded multiple times about the liquor that evening (we are legally not able to serve liquor), and it was also your request to cut many elements of the original decor proposal (including grand entrance details) in order to fit your budget for a 400+ person event. The ceremony venue would not allow rentals to be delivered the day prior, and unfortunately the rental company delivered your order late (sadly out of our control), which resulted in “all hands on deck” trying to finish set-up quickly to ensure your ceremony time wasn’t affected, which means your coordinator was not waiting at the doors when you arrived. We have learned from this and will be more clear with our clients to stay in the limo until your coordinator can come and get you. Furthermore, we had suggested assigning ushers to seat guests at the ceremony, and the family members that were assigned to help seat guests at the reception didn’t show up on time, which is why we had suggested a seating chart to avoid this unfortunate situation.

    Again, may we express our genuine apologies for your experience. We do not take this lightly, and thank you for sharing your thoughts. We will absolutely learn & improve from this moving forward.
