I went to a wedding that was planned by Simply Mox about two years before my wedding, I knew from the moment that wedding ended, that I would be using whoever the planner was.
Fast forward a year and shortly after being engaged I reached out to Simply Mox to be sure I got on their books early - I wasn't going to let their schedule get booked and risk them not having time for my wedding! We planned our wedding for about a year and I will say choosing Simply Mox was the best decision I made regarding our wedding!
I didn't want to(nor did I know how to) plan every single thing about my wedding (especially the annoying detail parts) I just knew the color scheme I wanted as well as the vibe I wanted and I let Susan roll with that. She came back with the most amazing ideas each time we talked and the end result was stunning. I have had people say to me that our wedding ranks as one of the top weddings they have ever attended! Huge KUDOS to SUSAN and her team for that! They said it looked like it was out of a magazine and they are so right!
As you know, you don't see the whole room put together until you are announced at your reception and honestly I could barely breathe! It was overwhelmingly beautiful and looked like something in a movie. I couldn't believe this was all for Kyle and me! The first things that popped into my head were, this is gorgeous, wow, stunning, exquisite, I am in awe!
To say I recommend Susan and the Simply Mox team is an understatement! I HIGHLY recommend them!! If you can let go a bit and leave things up to the professionals, I promise you will not be let down. You will be overjoyed with the work Simply Mox does! I know I was!

I could not have asked for anything better than what Simply Personal provided! Courtney did such an AMAZING job on everything from our Save-The-Dates to our Thank You notes and everything in between. I told her a few things that I liked and didn't like from previous weddings and she pulled it all together in the first try! She was very easy to keep in contact with and was there to help me in every way that she could. Courtney gave me so many different ideas that I could use at my wedding in terms of menus, place settings, table cards, and more! There's nothing she CAN'T do with graphic design. She really went out of her way to make sure our day was perfect! Even though I am moving out of the state, I am definitely going to use Simply Personal for things from Christmas cards to baby announcements!

My wife and I were married in June of 2011 at Prestonwood Chapel, with our reception at the Four Seasons Las Colinas. We started working with Susan Strauss and Simply Personal in December, 2010, and enjoyed top notch service and quality for the several months leading up to our wedding ceremony.
Susan and her business both find their foundation in the Lord, and for us that was a huge plus. Knowing that Susan shared our values made it easy for us to align on our vision for our wedding day.
Susan personally put together our wedding plan - she is highly organized and went through all the details with us, giving us options to consider as we looked at our budget. Susan also was terrific about providing guidance related to trends, etiquette, tradition, and what might work best in a given situation. She was never pushy, and at the end of the day my wife and I had the final say on what we selected.
In terms of quality, everything was top notch. We had a fairly generous budget to work with which helped, but even so we had some decisions to make in terms of cost. Susan was able to provide an array of options in terms of vendors at various price points, and we ended up being very pleased with our selection of bakery, florist, musicians, decorations, and invitations.
As we went through all of the months leading up to the wedding, Susan kept us on track, on budget, and was always there to manage the details for us. Although we'll probably never know exactly how much she did behind the scenes, I think the proof was in a wedding day that truly went off without a hitch.
I can recommend Simply Personal without hesitation, knowing that anyone working with Susan and her staff will get top notch service, quality, and dedication to excellence. Whatever your wedding day vision, whatever your budget, Susan will customize the experience to meet your needs with an end product that honors the Lord. We are so thankful we were led to Simply Personal and feel very blessed to have worked with such a great person like Susan.

Susan Strauss and Simply Personal did an amazing job planning and executing my recent wedding. Susan has amazing vision and is able to implement that vision with ease and efficiency. My husband and I blended a family with 4 children, so we didn't have time for the details. With Simply Personal, we were able to have the wedding of our dreams with all of kids, family and friends present. And best of all, we were able to enjoy the evening without worrying about anything.

Susan Strauss York and the team at Simply Personal, helped make my wedding dream a reality. I know it's sound like a cliche, but I honestly could not have done it without them. I live in Ohio and my husband lives in New Jersey. We got married in Dallas, TX and Susan flawlessly managed every detail. I didn't have to worry about anything. She met with me personally everytime I came to town and we were in constant communication via e-mail and text. When I said I wanted cupcakes instead of a cake, Susan immediately recommended a bakery and made arrangements to have the cupcakes delivered. Representatives went to our tasting and helped us determine food and beverage selections, without them we would have overspent. They were on hand bright and early on the wedding day to handle everything, which allowed me relax and enjoy being a "bride to be". When I panicked because we were over our limit at the reception, Susan added another table to make it work. Afterwards she sent us a copy of everything related to our wedding programs, menus, party favors, things we will cherish forever. I can't say enough good things about Simply Personal. When we thought we would have to change our location at the last minute, they went to bat for us and saved the day. Also, they are Christians, so they understood that we wanted our wedding to be spiritual and Christ centered, so we could party at the reception. I would highly recommend Simply Personal as a wedding or event planner. We were over the moon with their services and so were our guests!!!!

When I started planning my wedding I had so much on my plate yet I wanted my dream wedding. Susan and Simply Personal gave me my dream wedding and I was able to have no stress. People all around me noticed how calm I was and never once did I doubt or stress the planning. Susan took care of everything and created the wedding of my dreams. She got my vision by just talking to me and rolled with it. The intrique details that her and her staff took care of were amazing. I look back at pictures and see new amazing details that they created. They followed a timeline, lined up all vendors, held me to the budget I gave her, set up appointments, and ran the day of the wedding so smoothly. I can proudly say nothng went wrong that wedding day and I was all smiles. They created a wedding wonderland down to hanging chandeliers, blinged out table numbers, perfect table linens and flowers, a rockin band that keep everyone on their feet, organized the wedding weekend festivities, and created an amazing exit for us. I could not have asked for more or anything different. Thank you Susan and your wonderful staff.

Susan and her team went above and beyond to make our wedding dreams come true. They were such a blast to work with and made everything fun and easy. Talented, is not even a word to describe them. There vision is so amazing and outstanding, it will take your breathe away. When we walked into the reception, that is exactly what happened to us."It took our breathe away". When people say they wished they would have gone to Vegas or had regret spending money, Im sorry to say they did not have their dream wedding. I on the other hand can not say that, because we had the wedding of our dreams. It was more than we could have ever asked for. And Susan and her team made that happen. Thank you so much for everything!!

Simply Personal was involved in almost every aspect of my planning. From the first meeting, filled with ideas, creativity and a beautiful portfolio, to the administrative parts like a realistic budget and creative ideas on how to save money, SP was right on! I had the wedding of my dreams, but could never have pulled it off without Simply Personal!
Special Note: for those of you who are blessed to have a father paying for your wedding, but one who wants to know the "bottom line" before signing any contracts, Simply Personal understood my dad's initial concerns, talked him through all the numbers, and assured him that they could stay within the budget presented...he LOVED this and never worried beyond that point about the budget. He had complete confidence in the proposal SP put together for him. So, Simply Personal doesn't just cater to the bride and groom, they're also great at catering to dads, too!

Simply Personal was great to work with. Susan had great recommendations of vendors that fit within our budget and style. She and Lindsey were so easy-going yet thorough and professional at the same time. They were so flexible when we ended up changing our venue mid-stream. They went to great lengths to get the job done....even climbing over fences when our reception site couldn't get the lock on the gates open! They were great at giving advice on where to cut things when necessary to stay on budget without sacrificing style. I can't imagine not having them there on my wedding day. It was such a relaxing and stress free day for me because I knew that they had everything under control at the church and reception site. Thanks to Simply Personal, I got to enjoy just being a bride on my wedding day. The reception was everything I had hoped for and then some. I'm sure some things might not have gone exactly as planned, but I never knew it. They either made them right or made it so nobody noticed. I look back on my wedding day and remember everything as perfect! Thank you Simply Personal!

We loved having Simply Personal coordinate our wedding. They put a personal touch on everything. She inspired us to use our own taste and flair, while guiding with her expert opinion. Our wedding day felt personal and represented our relationship well, but also, executed with excellence. Big thanks for making our day so special!!!

Susan Strauss and her team at Simply Personal were hands down the easiest, most organized team to work with. Our wedding was spectacular due to their knowledge of local vendors and experience with every aspect of wedding planning. The Simply Personal team coordinated every aspect of my wedding from picking out the venues to placing gifts in my parent's cars. They are amazing. They also did my Save the Date's and Invitations as well and did a fabulous job. I just told them my ideas and they created something original just for me and my fiance. We were blessed to have them to work with!!!

Susan Strauss and her team at Simply Personal were amazing! I highly recommend them to any bride looking for a wedding planner. Their attention to detail was flawless. They were on top of everything at all times. An absolute pleasure to work with. They also did our invitations and stationary which were gorgeous. Our wedding was perfect with the help of Simply Personal!

I never knew that I could have had such a picture perfect wedding! They went above and beyond anything I ever expected. Simply Personal not only gave me my dream wedding but they also did it within my father’s budget (which he was extremely happy about). I felt like Susan and her staff were my personal Fairy Godmothers! I was never stressed or worried about anything during the whole planning process. I felt like I was their only bride and they were there morning, day and night for me, they were family!!
My wedding day was simply amazing! I had no worries, everything was done for me and all I had to do was show up. My family and I could not have done any of this without Simply Personal. I was living in a different city and my parents were in a different state and it was so easy for us to plan, thanks to Susan. She listened to what we wanted and went out and found that for us.
I loved every minute of the wedding planning process and I am very sad that it is all over. I had so much fun, and Simply Personal made it fun.
To this day I am getting compliments about my wedding from the details to the coordination. The guest truly enjoyed themselves and even my Pastor said that was the best coordinated wedding he has ever performed!!!
Another reason why I chose Simply Personal was because of their view towards marriage. They helped me with my dream wedding but they also helped my husband and I in understanding what a wedding is truly about, Marriage.
My dream wedding gave me my dream marriage!

Simply Personal is by far the best Wedding Planning team that I have worked with. Very personable and very on top of it - two "musts" when executing the best for the bride & groom. Being an officiant for weddings allows you to see many things...some Wedding Planning teams struggle...some are good...but I would have to say this Simply Personal team is ten steps ahead and phenomenal at what they do - and that is professionally executing and staying ahead of your needs as a bride & groom. No doubt about it - this is a great team to have on your side when planning and celebrating your big day! Top notch quality, service, value, and personal touch!

I just wanted to reach out and let you know how much of a blessing you were for our wedding! You don’t know how much of the stress you removed from me by taking on all that you did! Bryan and I absolutely loved our Rehearsal, Wedding, and Reception. We cannot thank you enough for a more perfect experience! From the printed addresses on our wedding invitations to all the coordinating of our day, you and your team were fabulous! I feel like you were more of a good friend than my wedding coordinator! Thanks again for all your support, suggestions, directions, and assistance. Hope I wasn’t too crazy of a bride! My warmest regards and hugs, Nicole Schneider

First and foremost, I want to thank all of you for doing such a tremendous job with our wedding and receptions! Yes plural on the receptions!!! Also, dealing with families in a second marriage can be tricky and my hats off to Susan for managing a very delicate issue beautifully! You read my face and handled the situation like a real pro! Thank you!!!
You ladies are talented, fun, kind, cool(especially when things get a little wild), and such professionals! Simply put our wedding would not have been stress free and organized with your guiding hand, eye, professionalism, and sense of calmness!
Bruce and I are so happy that we chose Simply Personal. We have received so many compliments and those are a result of you and your team! Thank you just does not seem enough here, but I did want you to know that you have customers for life!
