What our amazing couples have said…

 

pintopinterestI 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 co
ming, 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!!! -Rebecca + Will

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! -Samantha + Nate

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. -Jay + Wes

My wedding day was perfect!!!! I look back at the six months it took to plan and never in my wildest dreams did I know that it could have turned out so wonderfully fantastic. Actually, when I look back six months ago, I think about how I had all these ideas in my head and no clue how I was going to execute them. I knew that it didn’t matter how type A I was, I needed help. And in comes Teresa and Simply Couture into my life. She is absolutely gifted at what she does. From the very first conversation, I knew I was in good hands. She asked me all the right questions, she started to break up the planning into manageable pieces, and she reassured me that all could be done in the time allotted.  Once we agreed that she would provide full wedding planning services and signed a contract (within 48 hours might I add) Teresa was off to the races. She mapped out the steps that needed to be taken from venue, to DJ, floral, invitations, etc. Her contacts for vendors were reliable, professional and impressive as she was. If we hit a roadblock, her calm demeanor and considerable problem solving skills easily navigated around them. Her monthly checklist and email reminders kept us on task. And she was always, I mean always a text or a phone call away.  Finally my wedding day arrived, and I can honestly say I was not nervous or worried. I was just happy and content. I had chosen an awesome planner, and every “t” was crossed and every “i” was dotted. The day went according to her meticulous timeline (really meticulous!!!!). I just sat back enjoyed my family, friends, and my new husband. Sincerely, if you are looking for someone to entrust one of the most important and memorable days of your life, I highly recommend Teresa and Simply Couture. She is a supremely organized, detail oriented, artistically minded, proficient planner. But above all, she is passionate about putting together a wedding you will never forget. -Cathia + Joey {Featured in Munaluchi Bridal Magazine, Winter Issue 2016}

I would recommend Teresa (and Ashley) of Simply Couture Weddings to any bride who is looking to have a stress free day with all their details carefully taken care of. Teresa did an amazing job focusing on every detail of that day and coordinating with all my vendors and making sure everyone was where they needed to be at the right time. It was such a blessing to have Teresa, I did not have to think about any logistics that day. I was able to enjoy every second of my magical night because Teresa had taken the time to ask me many questions about how I wanted everything to go and kept meticulous notes so that on my wedding day all the big to the tiny decisions had been made and Teresa made sure they were carried out smoothly. She also did a great job recommending vendors since she has worked with so many great ones in the Broward and Palm Beach area. It can be very overwhelming choosing vendors and I can’t say enough how helpful it was to be guided through it all. I am a pretty detailed person myself but there were many times when Teresa surprised me by taking care of things that I hadn’t even thought of. Thank you again for the most amazing wedding day experience! -Dana + Austin

 

View More: http://traciburkephotography.pass.us/scwpintopinterestTeresa from Simply Couture Weddings was 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! -Jessica + Alex

Teresa is amazing. She was the biggest reason why our wedding went off without a hitch, despite the rain. She understood what I wanted and was so patient with me. I emailed her so many times, and she was great about responding. I never had to worry with her. She recommended the best vendors and got us deals with them too. The vendors she recommended were all fabulous, we didn’t have any issues with any of them. They were great to work with and were exactly what we needed for our wedding.  On our wedding day, Teresa did EVERYTHING. I don’t know about any of the behind the scenes stuff, I didn’t have to worry about a thing. Our family truly appreciated her presence at the wedding. Everyone thought it was so much fun, and loved the decor. I truly believe our wedding was as great as it was because of Teresa. There is no way I could’ve planned this wedding without her. She did all the work for me. I live in Tallahassee, but I’m from Ft. Lauderdale. We had to move our wedding up because my dad was sick. At that point, I knew we needed help. After our first conversation, and talking to other planners, I knew she was the one for us. She was understanding and had a perfect grasp of our style and wants. She had great ideas, and would be there for me to vent about any aspect of the planning process.  You can trust Teresa with the most important day of your life. She will never steer you wrong, and will do whatever she can to help you. She truly cares about her clients, and wants you to have the best day of your life. My parents loved her too. They have planned many parties, but were too sick to help plan our wedding. They are very picky about this stuff, and they thought she did an amazing job. It was wonderful to see my mom on the dance floor having fun and not worrying about the vendors, the food, etc. Thank you Teresa for making our day so amazing -Christina + Adam

 

-4pintopinterestOMG!!!!! What can I say they were just PERFECT!!!! Teresa since the day I met her was kind, organized, patient, on top of her game, everything you can ask for a wedding planner. She answers your calls, your text messages, emails, she is there for you 24/7 whatever you need she will be there for you. My wedding was beautiful everyone had an excellent time…. Everyone says that there will be one thing something will go wrong on your wedding day and it is true…..for me was my limousine it was overheated and we had no one to take us to the ceremony and guess what Teresa offered her car but also called other places and within 10 minutes I had another limo pick us up, I was not even late to my wedding or anything I was so happy to have her otherwise I don’t know what I could of done.    If you are looking for a wedding planner contact Simply Couture they are the BEST!!!!! They are top of the line.  Thank you Teresa and Ashley so much for everything you did,for making my day beautiful, memorable and stress free. Without you girls I don’t know what I could of done  XO -Jacqueline + Mark

 

G46A2986pintopinterestTeresa was absolutely wonderful and our wedding would not have turned out as amazing as it did without her. I chose to have it at a local art warehouse/ gallery that has never hosted a wedding before and basically there was a whole lot to do to make it happen properly. From the very beginning Teresa went above and beyond. She lives a little ways from me and our first meeting was in the middle, and she spent well over an hour talking with us before we even signed a contract. She immediately sent us home with a timeline, a plan for the order of operations, what would go where in the venue, and approx costs. Her preferred vendors that we used were very professional and did excellent work. She is very easy going considering the line of work she is in, but still extremely organized and proficient, as well. Weddings are definitely very stressful, but she made ours as stress free as possible. The week before, I asked for 1 last meeting at the venue without giving much notice and she was happy to do so. The rehearsal and day of she had her assistant, Ashley with her, who was equally as wonderful. They gave us their expert opinions about a few things regarding set up without coming across as pushy even in the slightest. Teresa had a nice timeline for all the vendors and contacted everyone so I had one less thing to worry about. The two of them made our wedding run smoothly and all of the wedding party and anyone who had any contact with either Teresa or Ashley had nothing but nice things to say. We had such an amazing day! Thank you both so much and I would absolutely recommend Simply Couture Weddings to anyone planning a wedding, or any major event. Kelly + Jacob

“I will start off by saying it is 4 days after my wedding and I miss Teresa! My mom found her and sent me her information when I was feeling a little down about the wedding since my soon to be husband was deployed and I had a bit of an off experience with a planner I had been speaking to, so I reached out to her and I instantly felt so comfortable and it was just “right.” We started planning my July wedding in October and there was not a single day that I did not hear from her or more than 3 minutes go by from an email getting answered. I felt at times that I had to tell her “Stop answering me” lol. Also, my husband being deployed called for Teresa to check her e-mail at 4 in the morning in case I had sent an email saying I heard from him and to go ahead and proceed with a decision we were trying to make together. Teresa made my vision come to life and poor thing I must have changed my mind over 57 times on what or where I wanted something. She is one of the most patient and compassionate people I have met in my life. Teresa was not only my planner, but a therapist, doctor, relationship counselor, but most importantly she became my friend. Without her, this wedding would never have been possible for me and I can’t thank her enough or say enough good things about her! The day of the wedding I was a nervous wreck, I felt like I was going to be sick any waking moment and it was so not needed because I have no idea if anything went “wrong” since it was never ever brought to my attention. Teresa also brought along her lead planner Ashley with her for the rehearsal as well as the wedding and I can tell you now that she is made for this as well! Hiring a wedding planner was by far one of the best investments I have made as of yet and I would do it all over again and pay double if it meant that Teresa and her crew were on my side!”  -Micaela + Justin

“There really isn’t enough room in this paragraph to describe Teresa’s talent as an event planner and her meticulous attention to detail.  We hired her to plan and coordinate our co-ed baby shower and gender reveal cocktail party and nearly every one of our 70+ guests remarked “It was the best baby shower they had EVER attended.”  I was nearly in tears when I walked into the room after Teresa finished setting it up it was so breathtaking.  The floral design, the color-coordinated candy buffet with handmade signs, the customized favor boxes, the custom balloon bouquets, all of it – was sheer perfection.  She should really be called an event artist – not simply an event planner.  Her creativity is surpassed only by her accessibility and quick response time.  She even sacrificed an entire day’s time to correct a ‘cake pop emergency’ that arose last minute.  We cannot wait to hire her again for future family gatherings and events and we cannot recommend her highly enough.” -Lauren + Brian

 

pintopinterest“The services provided at Simply Couture were all that I hoped they would be. Teresa was extremely professional, prompt, and very well organized. Not a single detail was missed!” -Jacqueline + Jay

 

 

 

 

“I hired Teresa Fpintopinteresternandez of Simply Couture as the day-of coordinator for my wedding at the W Fort Lauderdale Hotel. As an out-of-town bride (I live in NJ), it was sometimes difficult to find vendors I could trust. Teresa went above and beyond her day-of package to make recommendations for me and answer any questions I had about the area. As for her coordinator services, she was impeccably organized – no detail was overlooked – her timeline document is a thing of beauty. She was professional and responsive – emails/texts returned immediately. She went above and beyond to make sure all of our decor was as we wanted, the timing of the event went off as planned and, most importantly, that my husband and I were able to focus on enjoying the event because we had complete confidence that all of the logistics were being taken care of by Teresa behind the scenes. I    would highly recommend her services to any bride and groom. Thanks Teresa!”  -Lisa + Jonathan

 

hughes-wedding-154pintopinterest“Oh my goodness, where do I even start? Teresa was there for me before my now husband and I even got engaged. She somehow found me and she was a blessing sent from the Lord. I knew she was good but it wasn’t until my wedding day that I learned JUST how good she was! I had a completely DIY wedding at a venue an hour and a half away from my home. The distance and amount of stuff we had to bring in was ridiculous but Teresa handled everything with poise and reassured me every step of the way that things would turn out beautiful. The day of the wedding she handled everything and made sure NO ONE CALLED THE BRIDE!  My family was able to enjoy themselves and to our knowledge nothing went wrong on the day of the wedding. This is what you want to think on your wedding day, that everything is going perfect, even if it isn’t! She is a rare find in the sea of wedding planners and there is no one else in the world I would have trusted to plan my wedding. Her new lead planner Ashley is a champion and I was HIGHLY impressed with her. I was a nervous wreck getting ready to walk down the aisle as the sky started to get dark and looked like it was going to pour down rain but Ashley just kept talking to me about the venue and my dress and somehow kept me calm in one of the biggest moments in my life. I first of all recommend with all my might on hiring a planner for your wedding even if it’s just a day of coordinator, but more so than that I recommend hiring Teresa and her crew. Trust me it’ll be the best decision you’ll ever make in all of your wedding decisions!”  -Bailey + Josh

 

pintopinterest“Teresa was so helpful! We used her for partial planning and day of. She also helped design our save the dates, printed and mailed them. She was always available for any questions we had throughout the planning process. We had a very rowdy bunch day of and she handled everything perfectly. Her and her assistant made me feel like a princess and they were so professional. I feel like I gained a friend. Thank you for making our wedding enjoyable and beautiful, Teresa.  Couldn’t have done it without you!!”-Chelsea + Sean

 

 

pintopinterest“Honestly, how do people get married without a wedding planner?! The entire processes has been wonderful thanks to the support and guidance from Simply Couture Weddings. From the linens to the labels, you have been an invaluable consult and provided great organization and insight. The little details and final touches that most would overlook, you held to as much importance as I did. The day came together better than we could have asked for”-Maureen + Simon

 

 

pintopinterest“Amazing Wedding Planner!!! We had our Dream Wedding at the W South Beach, that Teresa with Simply Couture Weddings, helped plan. She has great vendors and connections, she is so organized, and most importantly she makes herself so available to her brides. Not to mention, she is so genuine and sweet. My husband and I couldn’t be more happy that we hired her…worth every penny and more!!!” -Kimberly + Jaime
