Words can't describe how fortunate I am to have worked with Teresa the year leading up to my wedding. I'm tearing up just writing this, because we went through a LOT together. I can honestly say I was the bride with the MOST going on...my father passed away 8 months before the wedding, this was a destination wedding, there were bickering in-laws, budget changes, the whole gamut. Teresa took everything in stride and became not only our wedding planner, but a confidante and sage advice giver. She's a professional, but she's also so personable and easy to talk to. If you are a bride who is looking for a Wonder Woman--you've found her! Not only is Teresa a fabulous planner, she's a full-time wife and mom. Oh, did I mention she gave birth to a beautiful baby boy 4 months before my big day, and not ONCE did this lady drop the ball. Teresa left no stone unturned when it came to our event. Although we were her first wedding back after her maternity leave (I'm still asking if she actually took it, because we were in CONSTANT communication over the last 6 months!), you certainly wouldn't know it! Our day was perfect down to the last drop and I credit her with making my vision come to life. We took a blank canvas and turned it into my perfect wedding. If you're looking for someone who will be dedicated to making you a happy bride, look no further. Teresa and her staff will keep you at ease during the planning process! In case you are wondering, we chose partial planning, and Teresa was amazing at making the whole process seamless! Pro tip: Listen to her vendor recommendations...she knows what she's talking about, and she's always right! I found Simply Couture Events through another planner who had since moved away from the area and had literally no stake in recommending Teresa other than that she knew her product was flawless. She wasn't wrong. If you're a bride planning from a distance (like me in Boston), or planning in South Florida, there is no other choice for full, partial, month of, or day-of planning. Simply Couture is Simply the best!
One of South Florida's Best!Reviewed on 7/31/2015 Jessica S
Teresa and Simply Couture Weddings were instrumental in making sure our big day went off without a hitch! From the beginning she was super helpful and easy to contact; making herself available by phone, email, text, or whatever at any time of the day. She offers both full and partial planning, and is willing to work with you to piece together what specific parts of the planning process you need help with. We had very busy schedules, and she understood our needs and helped us find the vendors we needed, assisted us in narrowing down venues, and offered tons of insight and creative opinions on all the little details that not only helped us overcome our indecisiveness, but made our wedding unique and special! Throughout the whole planning process she went above and beyond for us, even in ways we didn't expect. Although she was excellent throughout the planning stage, the day of the wedding is when she really SHINED! Her and her assistant both had a very calm, cool demeanor that put us at ease. They made sure that everything was going perfectly behind the scenes so that we could just enjoy our special day! They were very attentive to us and anything we needed or asked for they were on it immediately. We would not hesitate in recommending Simply Couture Weddings to anyone looking for a reliable, helpful, and confident wedding planner. We love you Simply Couture!
Teresa and Ashley are rockstars!Reviewed on 1/06/2014 Niki D
I am SO happy to see that the ladies at Simply Couture won these awards, they could not be more deserving! I hired Teresa and Ashley to do my day-of wedding coordination, and they rocked it. I am a bit over the top with my need to create and control every detail of any event, so to hire someone else to take care of things was a stretch for me. But I could not have done it without them. These ladies went above and beyond their committed day-of coordination, and helped immensely by collecting items I needed to create my centerpieces. Ashley went out of her way to meet me to deliver the items, and spent hours with me talking through my vision. Their internal commitment to me as a client and their (insanely admirable!) attention to detail allowed Ashley & Teresa to perfectly execute on my vision for my magical day. And perhaps even more important than making sure everything was aesthetically what I wanted, Ashley stayed with us through the entire night (despite having to wake up before the sun rose the next morning to travel to another wedding!) and made sure everything was perfect and I always had a drink in my hand :) All in all - I cannot say enough wonderful things about Simply Couture and could not imagine my wedding without them!
We hired Teresa three months after we got engaged. She was a godsend! This was especially true when a few months before our wedding we had to unexpectedly switch venues due to management issues at the original venue we booked. Before telling us the bad news, Teresa had called venues nearby to see if they had the same wedding date open and whether they would offer any similar pricing due to our emergency situation. Thankfully, one did and we booked a new venue, which was next door to our original venue. (We ended up falling in love with our new venue so everything happens for a reason!) We are from Chicago so if you're looking for a wedding planner for a destination wedding in Florida, Teresa is your girl. The weeks leading up to the wedding were a breeze and Teresa was always very responsive to our emails/texts/phone calls. As for the actual wedding, the entire weekend ran as smoothly as you could ever wish for, all thanks to Teresa and her team. We highly highly recommend Teresa and Simply Couture Weddings LLC!
Teresa and her team did an exceptional job before, during and after the big day. Because of their tireless efforts, wonderful suggestions, excellent planning and flawless follow-through, we were able to focus just on what was important on our big day and let the rest fall into its perfect place. I'd highly recommend Simply Couture to any soon-to-be-married couples looking for a top-notch planner.
Amazing! We could not have had this special day without her! She was kind, considerate, driven, reachable and on her game! Without Teresa idk how the day would have turned out. She's amazing and I love her for her hard work and dedication. Xoxo
I do not even know where to begin...let's just start out with working with Teresa was probably the BEST decision I made to help me with my wedding. Being a major procrastinator and having every single thing possible going on in my life the year leading up to my wedding day, Teresa kept me on top of everything and made the entire process literally stress free - she even got my wedding started FIFTEEN minutes early! Is that even heard of in the history of weddings? Leave it to Teresa to do anything to make your day absolutely amazing! Did I also mention she had her child's pre-k graduation moved to a different day because it happened to fall on the same day as our wedding. I'm telling you - wonder woman! My wedding was absolutely beautiful and went off without any mishaps because of Teresa and her team. Everything was absolutely perfect and stunning. She goes above and beyond to make sure all the little details match and makes it come together perfectly. She is so passionate about what she does and becomes a friend in the process! She listens to your wants and needs and does everything in her power to get it done for you and save you money in the process, all the while, being calm, cool and collected! I honestly do not know what I would have done without her because it was the best decision I think I made for my wedding. Thank you so much for everything you did and making my wedding more than I could have ever dreamed of! If I could give you TEN stars, I would! I would recommend Teresa without hesitation to anyone who is planning a wedding because, like I said, she is wedding wonder woman!
SimplyCouture Wedding was referred over by a friend for my upcoming wedding, and I'm sure glad they did. I didn't just gain an awesome planner that shared my vision, but a great friend I could confide in during the stresses of planning. Ashley became a wonderful friend and was an amazing person to deal with during such a stressful time. The pricing was actually very decent, considering all the time Ashley gave to help configure the day! Her attention to detail and her understanding of what was needed to make the day perfect was what I truly believe makes a planner a true planner. Her passion was second to none and I'm thankful that I had the opportunity to share such a special moment with her. Love you guys and thank you for everything you've done to make our wedding day beautiful :)
Words don’t exist to properly describe and give credit to Teresa for how instrumental and amazing she was. If you don’t want to read this whole review take this away: Working with Teresa was the single best decision I made and I’ll be trying to figure out a way to work with her again because I don’t want to lose her. When I first chatted with T, we clicked immediately and I knew that she could see my vision for the wedding, whereas others all seemed to lean towards ideas that were their own. It was like we shared a brain. We started working together about 10 months before my wedding, and as soon as we started working together a huge weight was lifted off my shoulder. She kept me sane (through the inevitable family drama, and MAJOR issues with the venue), saved me time (finding vendors that matched my vision, working with them directly), saved us money (industry discounts!), and most importantly felt like (and became) a friend. What’s probably most important for those reading…is that my wedding was executed impeccably. Everything was perfect and it was stunning - we even had the other vendors commenting on how well it was put together. I would recommend Simply Couture Weddings in a heartbeat for any bride. Teresa is much more than a “planner.” She becomes a friend that is passionate about what she does, has a beautiful eye for wedding design, is extremely detail oriented, and has wonderful relationships within the industry culminating in the most amazing events. xo S
If I could give Teresa Fernandez and her team ten stars, I definitely would. We worked together for over a year to plan my wedding and she was amazing from day one. I loved that she was laid back, like me, and very detail-oriented at the same time. From that day on until my wedding day, she was a savior working to get all of the details together for my destination wedding (we live in MD). She was always available for calls, emails, and in person meetings too which I greatly appreciated. The wedding was flawless and beautiful all thanks to Teresa. We really couldn't have done it without her expertise.
My husband and I hired Simply Couture Weddings after finding out that the venue coordinator at our wedding venue had left approximately one month before our wedding. We had been planning the wedding for almost a year and a half and Ashley stepped in and made us feel at ease during such a stressful time. My husband and I live in New York, but Ashley was so responsive and got up to speed very quickly on all of the small details we had spent so many months planning. She was great to work with, so friendly and comforting, and a great sounding board for last minute decisions! Ashley ran our rehearsal so efficiently and effectively, and on the day of the wedding, everyone knew exactly where to go and what to do! She was an amazing buffer between us and the management at the venue, who we had a number of issues with, and made sure that my husband and I had an amazing day. Our families and bridal party were also very impressed. We are truly grateful for her help - having her with us on our wedding day ensured that my husband and I could relax and enjoy ourselves the entire night!
Once we decided to hire a day of the event coordinator, we search The Knot for reviews and recommendations. After reading all the comments and awards, we decided upon Simply Couture Weddings. My daughter-in-law and I could not have made a better decision. Teresa was not only a wealth of information, but calm, well organized and responded to all emails in a very timely manner. Her follow through was impeccable and her attention to detail flawless. I would highly recommend Simply Couture Weddings without hesitation.
What would I have done without Teresa and Ashley? They were amazing!! I booked them for their Day Of coordination package and They were there for everything I needed the day of. Teresa was also always available for any questions I had or advise I needed throughout the planning process. I can't say enough great things!
The majority of brides that I spoke with that had a wedding planner, said that it was one of the best decisions they made when planning their wedding. Those that didn’t, often told me that they wish that they had. In trying to save money, my husband and I did as much as we could ourselves (save the dates, invitations, labels, center pieces, etc…), but it was important to me to have a wedding planner on the day of. We retained Teresa (Simply Couture weddings) well in advanced, based on her high ratings and recommendations on wedding wire. For a day-of planner, she was really involved throughout. She was always available by email, and responded quickly. She provided us with some superb contacts for recommended vendors and offered to review any contract in advance of execution. She asked that we copy her on all wedding related decisions, and when the time came for us to transition all the wedding preparations it was a seamless transition. She executed the vision of our wedding beautifully!! Following the wedding, we received several compliments on our wedding & the décor and good flow of the wedding was noticed by all of the guests. I have 3 siblings, none of whom had a day-of coordinator, so my parents & I had to scramble on the day of the wedding to put everything together and then after it was all over we had to make sure everything was taken care of at the end of the night. For my wedding, my parents only had to get to the ceremony on-time and enjoy themselves. Our photographer, catering company, and all of our vendors all complimented me on the execution and organization of the wedding. I want to thank Teresa & her assistant for making everything look great, and run smoothly.
I don't even know where to begin because without Teresa my wedding would not have been possible!!!! From the moment I first reached out to her, I knew we would be in good hands. Originally I had only booked her for her "day of" planning package, but as an out of town bride trying to plan my South Florida wedding from New York, I found Teresa's assistance to be invaluable and decided to add on additional services (and it was worth every penny!) Teresa is the most efficient, organized and responsive person I have ever met! But, equally as important and impressive, is how dedicated she is to her couples and how hard she works to turn their dream wedding into a reality. From stuffing the invitations, to monitoring the RSVPs, to creating the welcome bags, to creating the hashtag signs, she leaves no stone unturned. And I seriously don't know what I would have done without her on the wedding day. My husband and I had long planned on an outdoor, oceanfront ceremony at sunset and with the forecast predicting 0% chance of rain at ceremony time we decided to go for it. Of course, it started pouring an hour before the ceremony began and (of course) we started freaking out. Teresa (and her AWESOME assistant Ashley) were amazing and calm the entire time. They took control of the situation, and when we saw a break in the rain coming, they somehow managed to get all the vendors ready to go and executed the outdoor ceremony PERFECTLY! I still don't know how they pulled it off but my husband and I are eternally grateful to them for making our wedding day absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!
Didn't think we needed a Day of Coordinator but SOOOO glad we had one! Simply Couture is Simply AWESOME!!!! Semi destination wedding in Delray Beach and Ashley pulled everything together seamlessly! She dealt with some (minor to her but big to us!) issues from our caterer, moving the ceremony from the beach to the lawn at the last minute, and high winds...always professional and kept our "vision" in mind. Gave her free reign to make any unexpected decisions and to change décor around as she saw appropriate and the end result was more than we could have imagined and we felt like we were actually able to enjoy the wedding with her in control! Thank you so much!
I was introduced to Teresa by a friend that used her for her wedding and had nothing but amazing things to say about her and her services. From the moment I emailed teresa to inquire about her services, she was so knowledgeable and willing to help. Being a long distance bride, i was completely new to florida and did not know where to begin, her willingness to help me without even having committed to her yet showed how genuine her work etiquette was. I knew that when I did decided to commit to her, which was the same day i emailed her, I would have unparalleled service. Although she’s an extremely popular wedding planner, from day one she makes you feel like your wedding is the only wedding she is planning. Her attention to detail, quick responses (i swear there are like 15 of her) and her efforts give you ease and comfort you need during what is sometimes a stressful time planning. Her aesthetics, visual direction, her knowledge of the industry, as well as her connections, will give you the wedding of your dreams. I have never seen a wedding get as many compliments as mine, and I give all the credit to her and her phenomenal assistant, Ashley. She has grown to be someone I value in my life and will continue to have a relationship with. Thank you so much for giving me my dream wedding and making my wedding planning process so smooth sailing. xoxo
From the moment I contacted Teresa, a year before our wedding (before we even had a date or venue) she was so helpful, patient, responsive, professional, accommodating, the list of positive things I could say go on and on. My husband and I were initially thinking we could do all the wedding planning on our own because we knew exactly what we wanted, however, one of best decisions we made was to hire Teresa and the Simply Couture team for our day-of coordination. Had we known what we know now, we would have hired her for her full range of planning services because she was always on top of tasks, communications and even attended a sample meeting with me when I was having difficulty expressing my vision to a vendor. Teresa is truly the most organized person I think I've ever met and was always willing to go above and beyond to make our wedding just as we had envisioned. Her listening skills and calm demeanor amazed me throughout the planning process and we couldn't have been more thankful to have worked with her.
Simply Couture was a lifesaver! Teresa came in and took care of everything! The week of the wedding I did not worry about a thing! Teresa and her team are a pleasure to work with! I would highly recommend them!
Teresa was fantastic- we were planning our wedding from out of town, and simply could not have done it without her. She was always on top of every single detail, putting out fires before we even knew they had happened. She helped us find a lot of our other vendors, and everyone she recommended was excellent. The day of, she ran the show and got us everything we needed and had us where we needed to be, all without stressing us out at all. I would highly recommend Simply Couture to anyone planning a wedding- you won't be disappointed.
I can't say enough about Teresa and her staff. From the moment we spoke Teresa made me feel so confident and relaxed that everything was going to be amazing on our wedding day. My husband and I both work 40/hour a week jobs and the idea of planning a wedding seemed close to impossible. Not only did she make it possible, but she went above and beyond in every way to ensure every aspect of our wedding was the best day of our life. The guests at our wedding still have not talking about how memorable and seamless the entire event was.
My sister-in-law hired Simply Couture Weddings, and as her maid-of-honor, I saw first-hand just how crucial they were to the entire planning process. Ashley coordinated with the bride down to the very last detail, and made sure everything went perfectly. She was extremely organized and made sure the bride didn't have to worry about a thing on her wedding day. She proved to be so reliable and easy to work with that I will be sure to hire Simply Couture Weddings when my big day comes. Just by being in her presence, you can tell that Ashley is experienced and knows what she is doing. She will work with you and do anything to make your vision for the perfect wedding day come to life! When the bridal party arrived for rehearsal, Ashley seemed very familiar with the venue and was able to conduct our rehearsal without wasting a minute of time. The day of the wedding, she and Teresa had the entire ballroom and ceremony area ready to go, so by the time the bride and her party arrived, all we had to do was relax, bond, and enjoy the moment. Beyond that, Ashley is the type of wedding planner who will go above and beyond for her client. She is extremely flexible, and will go out of her way to make sure your wedding experience is flawless. I highly recommend Simply Couture Weddings to anyone who wants a stress-free wedding. Thank you Ashley and Teresa!
Teresa (and her company Simply Couture Weddings) was referred to us by a day-of coordinator who was unavailable the date of our wedding, and we're confident it was the best thing that could have ever happened. From our very first communication, we knew were in the right hands. Teresa brings with her a vast array of knowledge and experience for all things wedding- related, and has incredible attention to detail. The months leading up to your wedding day can be stressful, but Teresa is quite possibly the most helpful and responsive person we worked with. No matter the question, Teresa had an answer for us (and usually within minutes). We retained Simply Couture Weddings for day-of coordination -- it performed that task exceptionally, and went far above and beyond the job description. Because we decided to do a the vendor selections ourselves, Teresa provided us with great recommendations to help make our wedding a success. Teresa's associate Ashley was our lead coordinator for the day of our wedding. Now having met Ashley, it is clear that event organization is a skill she has mastered -- all with a smile and amazing energy. The moment she arrived on site, she took control and put our minds at ease. She also made us feel special. For her, no detail was too small. We asked, and it was done -- no questions asked. My finally thought is this: it's difficult to buy peace of mind, particularly for your wedding day. But if you want guaranteed excellent service, incomparable responsiveness, and a wonderful experience overall (even in the months leading up to your special day), then hire Simply Couture Weddings. It's the best decision we made.
Hiring Simply Couture was the one of the best decisions my husband and I made through this entire engagement period. I worked with Ashely for about a year planning every single detail for my Gatsby-themed wedding and it definitely would not have been everything we imagined and more if it wasn't for Ashley and Ariel on our wedding day. I honestly would not have changed any part of that day! Ashley made great suggestions and I just felt that we worked really well as a team. By the time I hired her, I already had most of my vendors but she helped me find the last few that I needed. The hair and makeup team was a vendor she recommended and they were so sweet and easy to work with. Ashley knew how to calm my nerves any time I was stressing about anything and was great about finding solutions. Ashley and Ariel were true life savers that day!!! Love you girls!!!!! I'm going to miss working with you lol but I definitely recommend them, that decision for us was worth every single penny and more. <3 (wish I could give 10 stars!)
Never Anxious!Reviewed on 10/05/2015 Brittany M
We picked Simply Couture Weddings middle package as we both lived out of town from the wedding location, in addition to being in a long-distance relationship. Having a wedding planner literally available 24/7 was really comforting knowing that we may forget something amidst all the detailed planning. My husband and I may have been overly picky about certain vendors so a few times we brought in vendors different than what was initially suggested which is ok. Just make sure to communicate this with the planner. The best part of the wedding planners was the week of and specifically the day of the wedding. We had Ashley for the week of and the day of. She was extremely helpful and literally was serving us all week with whatever we needed! Sincere, genuine, and nice at heart! The day of the wedding was perfect, not because it was my wedding :) let me explain... Timing was flawless all thanks to Ashley. Church was on time and Ashley made sure to heard all the family for pictures and she was also very very prepared when I ran into a little personal emergency at the reception. Thank you Ashley and Teresa for helping make our wedding Simply Couture!
