We planned a destination wedding with VAR events as our wedding planner. This was admittedly their first time taking on such an endeavor, but we had high hopes they would execute flawlessly. Unfortunately we were not satisfied with the services...
rendered. We paid for full service wedding planning which means we did not want to lift a finger. Victoria put most of the burden on her assistant who missed meetings, lacked initiative, and came to meetings unprepared with little to offer. Lack of attention to detail was given to our wedding package with the resort which resulted in failure of vendor (photographer) to show up to our pre planned welcome event. When we brought this to their attention no apology was rendered but excuses was given. We accommodated all of our guest and answered all questions which was a huge task in itself. The resort we chose came with a wedding planner and in hindsight that would have been enough. On the actual wedding day there was no direction given to our wedding party and timing of events. Guest commented on how the wedding planners seemed to be more interested in enjoying the destination with their own preplanned photoshoot then ensuring the couple’s needs were met. Bottom line if you are interested in having a destination wedding make sure to check their track record and make sure expectations are outlined in your contract.

Victoria and her team were wonderful from Day 1! She has a wonderful talent of producing elegance and beauty no matter your budget. Our wedding was postponed due to Covid and they never skipped a beat. They keep you on task and keep you reass...
ured every step of the way. Every vendor suggested and that were ultimately chosen fell in line with the professionalism and beauty that we wanted for our special day. Special thanks to Morgan who helped oversee our special day. Talk about a comfort in knowing we had the support and someone on our team that helped to execute such a beautiful day. Words can’t express the gratitude from me and my husband. I would recommend VAR events to anyone and can’t wait to work with them again in the future. Love you all!!

ommunicated effectively and provided amazing customer service. Hurricane Ida hit and postponed our wedding day, VAR took care of everything. Very professional and detailed, their amazing eye for elegance and luxury at ANY budget is unmatched. I am looking forward to baby showers and other events with them.

VAR events severely under delivered and we decided to terminate our contract and as a result, lost our non-refundable deposit.
Communication was severely underwhelming with the owner of VAR and the followup and followthrough was poor. We foun...
d ourselves requesting updates and a list of expectations several times as we approached our March 2021 wedding date and it either went unanswered or false hope was given.
We hired VAR in August of 2020 and met 3 times with the VAR owner as a result of my fiancé and I’s inquiries. We met for the initial consultation in August, the venue walkthrough where the owner of VAR included a young child who was unruly (had to be asked to stop touching things), and again Nov 3 after a missed due date of Oct 30 where she explained she was unable to reach out to us due to another wedding. Please note, VAR committed to an Oct 30 due date for a floor plan design that was initially verbally committed to be delivered by Sept 26. The VAR owner did not communicate the miss until Nov 2. As we approached the date, we reached out on Oct 29, Nov 1 and Nov 2. On Nov 3, we met for a working session and it seems as if the floor plan was thrown together in a rush. VAR communicated during the working session that we’ll hear from her throughout November for the design and they’ll move as fast or as slow as decisions are given to be made by my fiancé and I - we never received those options to make decisions quickly.
Dec 2020, we terminated our contract and lost our non-refundable deposit. As I thoroughly explained, the communication was not up to par with the owner and with 3 months to go, we hadn’t heard from the owner since Nov 3. We’d heard from her assistant which we were grateful for. Per the contract we agreed to, their office hours were M-Th 10-4. However, we were quickly enlightened once we terminated the contract of the inability to meet this expectation due to other circumstances. Considering the lack of attention to detail we received and apparently fluff contract, we did expect to receive some of the deposit back.
We wholeheartedly do not recommend VAR Events.

verything so in order and applied no pressure or stress to my life as an upcoming bride. She kept me on task. And that's rewally difficult to do I am so thankful that I was able to work with her. The ending result of all of my ideas, my visions, my ezpections were completely surpassed. When they opened the door to my wedding as I walked in to meet my now husband , I was blown completely away with the look and feel of my ideas that she made come to life. We are forever in Awwwwe with Victoria and her talents. Thank you Girl for making our wedding a dream come true. We absolutely LOVE YOU!!!!

te are impeccable. Every bit of what was asked for was executed in the design, which was flawlessly executed. I believe what helped most in making the day the huge success that it was, was the fact that Victoria was engaging from day one, setting up appropriate milestone targets along the way and she really spent the time to listen and asked the right, probing questions to capture the vision. Thank you Victoria and VAR Events. Everything was absolutely perfect.

VAR is an excellent choice and can adapt to any event and any venue gracefully with innovative design and execution.
