    Simona is amazing!

    Simona was recommended to me through a mutual friend. She was my month of/day of coordinator and also helped me do a bit of pre-planning. Even though I am a project manager, I was not prepared for all the hundred of big and many minor details that you need to plan, organize and prepare for. Simona definitely saved me. She is so professional and organized - all my other vendors loved working with her as well. One of my biggest pet peeves at most weddings is how delayed some things can be, whether it’s ceremony, reception, photos, dinner, etc… but I do understand sometimes things are out of our control. For my wedding day, Simona made sure the timeline was followed and kept everyone on schedule. It was amazing -I felt so secure with her and didn’t have to worry about anything other than showing up! She is phenomenal, thanks again Simona!

    Incredibly thankful for this amazing day-of coordinator!

    Simona was such a dram to work with! She executed our day flawlessly and with such grace. Her style and ability to bring our vision to life is like none other. She did a fantastic job at tackling some unforeseen circumstances, professionally and diligently while keeping a big smile on her face. She kept the day running so smoothly and never skipped a beat. Simona took all my worries and fears away by being there every step of the way, and planning everything down to the last teeny tiny detail! Truly such a magical day, and we could not be more thankful to have Simona.

    Over and above...Beyond our expectations!

    It is difficult to put a value on the work and stress that Simona saved us from start to finish. Simona's experience, guidance, knowledge and calm demeanor was invaluable to our wedding planning. Nothing was impossible; everything was doable.
    With Simona's help, we were able to put together a flawless event in 2 months on a scale that would take most people 6-8 months. The attention to detail ensured perfection; nothing was forgotten. Simona was on top of every task and detail, and given the extreme timeline with a lot of moving parts, this was impressive. Certainly “top of class” and all with a smile.
    Many of our guests described our evening as “magical”. A million thanks to Simona and her team!!

    Something Blue Weddings & Events's reply:

    Jessie, thank you SO much for the sweet words, it was such a pleasure working with you and Mark for the last few months. In these dark times of the pandemic, speaking with you every day and planning your special day was something I looked forward to. Hearing that I was able to create your dream come to life and you were able to enjoy the day with your most loved ones - warms my heart so much! Thank you for choosing and trusting me with your big day!

    SIMONA IS THE BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Simona is the best wedding planner! After trying and failing to plan my own wedding three times (each time attempt was cancelled due to money issues, family issues, and pandemic issues), I finally hired a wedding planner. I'm soooooooo happy that we found Simona! She is friendly, efficient, knowledgeable, and just generally awesome. From day 1, Simona was on top of everything, asking us specific and relevant questions, pointing out what we needed to do ASAP and what could wait, asking us about details that I hadn't even thought of, communicating with all the vendors, and staying on top of everyone - vendors, bride, groom, wedding party - to ensure that the wedding went smoothly and happily. Everyone told me how awesome Simona was, including my hair and make-up artist, DJ, and mother - none of whom are easy to impress. Simona was with us every step of the way. When I had a disagreement with the DJ two days before the wedding, she found us someone new. When I texted Simona on the morning of the wedding to say I was panicking about my hair low lights, the potential for rain in the forecast, and my lack of sleep, Simona wrote back right away to say that my hair artist would emphasize my highlights, Simona would get me an espresso, and she got another tent delivered within the hour. Even as I write this, my sister is commenting that my wedding would have completely fallen apart without Simona. I recommend her 1000%

    Something Blue Weddings & Events's reply:

    Thank you SO-SO much for this lovely review and the very kind words!!! It truly was a pleasure working with you two towards and during your special day! I hope you were able to enjoy yourself with your closest family and friends (and Abbey) and share all the special moments with them. Your families were both so sweet, helpful and easy to work with as well.

    I hope, that despite the 3 planning attempts and the rain, your special day was everything you dreamed of and more!

    Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness and health (with no more pandemics). Thank you again for having myself and the Something Blue team as part of your big day!

    Absolutely amazing!

    I do not know what we would have done without Simona & her team!! During our meetings prior to the wedding, she ensured that EVERYTHING had been thought of - things I would never think about that were so important, down to the littlest detail. Her team put together our decor at the venue & ensured the entire day ran smoothly and it was an absolute dream. Everything went perfect because of her & I couldn't be more grateful!! Thank you!!!

    You need a day of coordinator

    Simona was very easy to work with. She made sure that as much as possible was taken care of and out of our hands the day of the wedding. It was nice to have someone calm around, among all the stress. Would recommend her to anyone having a wedding.

    We had the most perfect wedding day!

    Simona was our month-of/day-of wedding coordinator for our September wedding at the RCYC on Toronto Island. She made sure every detail of our special day went off without a hitch! She was polite, professional, calm and organized. She also made sure to carefully listen and respond quickly to our last-minute wants and needs on the day of. It was so wonderful to be able to sit back and enjoy our day knowing every detail was being closely looked after.

    We highly recommend Simona and Something Blue Events!

    Best decisions we made for our wedding!

    Simona was absolutely amazing! From the minute I started chatting with her to get details on pricing, she was so kind, asked us questions and gave us recommendations on venders which helped us save a lot of money! She was always available to answer my questions throughout the planning stage and was an absolute dream to work with leading up to the wedding. She helped us refine our timeline and made sure we paid attention to all the detail. She put in an effort to meet all our family and friends in the wedding party to make the big day run smoother. Day of I was so relaxed, and she handled everything flawlessly with the help of Vanessa. They are quite the power team! Simona and Vanessa managed everything, from making sure we had water while taking pictures outside, to putting my glasses and speech at the table for me and every detail in between of set up and helping our guests. I cannot say enough positive things about Simona and Something Blue Weddings and Events. I would 1000% recommend her and use her services again in the future!
