Elsie · married on 01/19/2019 5.0 Do yourself a favor, hire Events by CarmenI was referred to Carmen just about 30 days before my son’s wedding. At the time, I will admit that I was panicking because I couldn’t put this small but elegant wedding together. From the first minute I spoke to Carmen, I knew I was in the best hands. All I did after we hung up was smile. The entire experience was so helpful and she was so responsive. I don’t think I waited even a half a day for a returned phone call or email. The day of the rehearsal, she arranged everyone and everything and the day of the wedding, she took care of EVERYTHING! There were some hiccups with our location and she took care of solving any and issues that came up at the last minute. I wish I had another event so I could hire her all over again. I’d give her 100 stars! 😊
Raiza Figueredo · married on 01/06/2019 5.0 Best Money Ever SpentI consider my contract with Carmen the best money I’ve ever spent. Not only were her and her partner professional, well-connected with other vendors, and extremely talented in their field, she was also a pleasure to work with. Her personality and calm demeanor are but two of the qualities that make her the best at what she does. Weddings are more stressful than I ever imagined! Luckily, I had Carmen on my side and on the day of my wedding as well as on my rehearsal dinner, I felt very calm and happy because I knew everything was going to be perfect. She was so attentive to my needs before the wedding and on the day of. Everyone In my wedding party felt so pampered and well attended to. My parents fell in love with her! And although my husband was not happy about soending any money on a wedding planner, (he did not think we needed one), he was ecstatic and relieved that I made the decision to bring Carmen on board. Thank you so much Carmen for making my wedding as memorable and as beautiful as I always hoped for!!! Would recommend her to everyone with zero hesitation.

Katherine · married on 08/31/2018 5.0 Every bride wants her wedding to be magical and perfect. If you’re currently searching for a wedding planner whether it’s for month of or full planning look no further! From the moment I met Carmen I knew that she was the perfect wedding planner for me! I planned the majority of my wedding but still needed someone responsible, professional and trustworthy to ensure that my special night ran smoothly! And Carmen did just that! She’s a breath of fresh air and such a relief for any bride! She is affordable, knows all the best vendors in Miami, has great taste, is always available and best of all she genuinely cares about your event! Her day of assistants are just as amazing as her. Carmen, thank you for everything you did to make sure my wedding was unforgettable! You will definitely help me plan my baby shower in a few years! ????
Lisbett · married on 08/18/2018 5.0 Let me start by saying I am a major control freak! I wanted everything to be perfect for my big day, and they do say if you want things done right to do them yourself… right?…. WRONG! Not on your wedding day bridezilla! You need someone who will be there for you to make sure your vision comes to life while you savor every single moment! That angel from heaven to me was Carmen! I honestly do not know what I would have done without her. Carmen has so much experience in this industry, you can tell she absolutely loves what she does. I have nothing but great things to say about her, she’s a true professional in every sense of the word. She provided me with so much guidance and knowledge that my whole wedding experience wouldn’t have been the same without her! If you’re asking yourself if you “need” a wedding planner/ day of coordinator…. stop wondering because YOU DO! Thanks you for making our big day magical.
Julie · married on 05/20/2018 5.0 Best night of my lifeMy initial conversation with Carmen was about 1 hour. We chatted on all things wedding – the conversation flowed and was so easy. This is how I knew that she was the one! Carmen and her team were absolutely fabulous. She last minute handled so many little things that no bride should have to deal with. They thought of everything. Our night was perfect – everything was executed perfectly. I cannot reccomed Carmen and her team enough. She’s accessible via phone and text at all times and goes out of her way for anything that you need!!!
Rosalinda · married on 05/13/2018 5.0 Carmen was a dream to work with. From the start she was very professional at all times, able to solve all problems and was very easy to communicate with. Carmen knows the wedding industry extremely well so her recommendations allowed our wedding day to run smoothly by working with only professionals. As many other couples my husband and I were on a budget. Carmen respected our budget and suggested vendors who were experts in their field. Carmen helped me with every detail of the wedding from choosing invitations, to selecting our venue, and even served as the day of wedding coordinator. I can not advise any bride enough that hiring a wedding planner and a day of coordinator is a must. Not only does it protect your investment but hiring Carmen as both insures your wedding day will run smoothly without ANY incidents. Carmen was very easy to talk to when you were feeling overwhelmed 🙂 She made a few decisions for me the day of my wedding, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. My family also thought she was the best. There is not one thing I would change about my wedding and I can truly say it is because of Carmen’s hard work I was able to have my royal wedding. Thank you for everything Carmen. You are the best in the industry!!!
Denisse · married on 04/07/2018 5.0 Carmen was so easy to work with and she was so accommodating! She really understood my vision and made it happen! Most importantly, she was excellent with her response time.
Alexandra · married on 02/24/2018 5.0 Carmen is worth her weight in GOLD!!! She made my wedding day go so smoothly and beautifully. From coordinating all of my vendors to setting up my decor perfectly, she took care of every detail exactly how I wanted it. Cynthia was incredible, too, and checked on me throughout the evening, making sure I had plenty to eat and drink to enjoy my day. There are always things that go wrong that are out of our control, from rain to vendor issues, but Carmen resolved them all, saving me so much stress and allowing me to just relax and enjoy my day. I still feel like my wedding day was an incredible dream and I know it would not have gone so well without Carmen’s help!!!
Melanie · married on 02/23/2018 5.0 I love Carmen! She made my wedding day incredibly easy and perfect! I did not worry about a single thing, which is what I wanted. Any question or concern I had about the big day she handled. I was always able to get contact with Carmen whenever I needed to. Carmen is an absolute sweetheart! I couldn’t have had the most perfect day without Carmen!
Shahzia · married on 02/10/2018 5.0 Carmen and Cynthia,
Thank you both! We had an amazing experience with you through the past few weeks and of course, the wedding day. I am amazed that the party was well organized, on schedule and that we were able to pull off the wedding from a distance. I was on Cloud 9 for most of the day and so happy that I didn’t know of any snafus or issues like a little rain.
Our family can’t stop raving about you! Your service, confidence, calm attitude and experience were exceptional. You knew what I needed and what our bridal party needed. Your attention to detail (like the table numbers) was on point. Thanks for making sure we ate, that we completed our “must- do’s” like mingling, pictures and eating!
We are on the way to our Honeymoon! Much needed time in the sun and I can’t wait to recommend you to my friends.
Best of everything with lots of good vibes for success in your future coordinating S&R 02.10.18
Melissa · married on 11/18/2017 5.0 Carmen was amazing from start to finish! From day one, she was a true professional. I used her for month of planning as I had done most of the work myself. However, I had a large ballroom wedding, with somewhat complicated travel from the venue to the church and back. Carmen and her team worked very hard to manage the large guest count and did a great job setting up my personal items and packing them at the end of the night. It made me comfortable to know she was there following up with every vendor and taking control of things when I couldn’t. She was highly accessible throughout the entire process and was always available through email and text. Thank you so much Carmen!!!
Nicole · married on 11/05/2017 5.0 Carmen is attentive, organized, an excellent communicator—She is truly invested in creating your dream wedding. I didn’t have to lift a finger on my wedding day. It was the most relaxing, most perfect day! I highly recommend her services, you won’t regret it!
Tiffany · married on 11/04/2017 5.0 Carmen is an extraordinary asset to have on your wedding day. Carmen and her team surpassed all my expectations. We initially were going to hire Events by Carmen for the “Full Day of Coordination” services, but we ended up receiving “Month of Planning” services. My husband and I are extremely satisfied with the services we received from Events by Carmen, and we highly recommend Events by Carmen for any engaged couple planning a wedding. Additionally, if we ever have another large special celebration, we will certainly contact Events by Carmen as well.
Carmen, Cynthia, and the team go above and beyond for clients. Carmen is extremely easy to reach during business hours, and there were a few occasions that Carmen reached out to me outside of her business hours while she was working on details for our wedding. Saying Carmen is a hard worker would not do her justice. Carmen is a fantastic communicator, is realistic and honest with her brides/ couples, and carries herself extremely professionally. Carmen was also easy to reach after our wedding. She asked for, encouraged, and welcomed any type of feedback. My husband and I had no constructive criticism for Carmen, Cynthia, or the team.
My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at the same location. As the wedding got closer, representatives from the venue treated us unprofessionally, rudely, and unfairly. Carmen took that burden off my husband and me, and facilitated the communication with the venue representatives. The day of, Cynthia also took this burden off us — which was very much needed, as a disrespectful rep on-site made me cry moments before I had to walk down the aisle.
I never understood why people would hire a wedding planner or a day-of coordinator when you could do it all yourself. While planning my wedding, I realized that on the day of your actual wedding, you can’t coordinate and bride at the same time. Your best spent wedding money will be on Events by Carmen!
Diandra · married on 10/16/2017 5.0 Carmen is the best planner you could ever ask for. She made our wedding day beyond perfect. She’s always a phone call or text away, and she answers all the questions you could possibly have. She is so genuine, cares about what she is doing, and most importantly cares about you and your happiness. We couldn’t have had a better wedding or a better planner. We would highly recommend Carmen for any wedding or event!
GGabriela · married on 07/22/2017 5.0 Carmen and her sister Cynthia were my day of coordinators and they were amazing to work with. Ww had a lot of intricate pieces to my wedding and they ensured everything was executed smoothly. They took care of every issue that popped up such that I didn’t have to worry about anything and was able to enjoy my wedding. Anything I asked for them to do they did without question. They have such a positive attitude and really enjoy their line of work. Both of them are really hard workers and put 110% into each project. If I had another wedding to plan I would choose them again, no questions answered!
Romy · married on 05/28/2017 5.0 Carmen is amazing. So helpful and resourceful. My husband and I got married at my parents’ house and there were so many things to consider! We had to do everything since there was no real “venue” and a wedding had never been done there before. Carmen made the whole thing stress free and we couldn’t have done it without her:).
Fiorella · married on 04/08/2017 5.0 I can’t even explain how AMAZING of an experience I had with Carmen and her services on my wedding day. Carmen and her staff went above and beyond our expectations. I came to her with an idea of what I wanted my dream wedding to look like and she brought it to LIFE…even better than I had imagined! From the decor to the logistics, she was perfection! Our wedding day ran so smoothly from beginning to end. She was always making sure my husband and I were enjoying ourselves, and thanks to her, we did just that! From the moment we had our first meeting with Carmen, we knew we were in good hands. To all brides considering a wedding planner and/or day-of coordinator, you don’t even have to think TWICE about choosing Carmen! You will have the wedding of your dreams and will forever be grateful.
Holly · married on 03/31/2017 5.0 Have a to do list and let Carmen help you prioritize and organize! No question was too dumb or too difficult for her. I felt very comfortable asking questions and confident that we would have a solution! Thanks again Carmen for being apart of our lives !
Cynthia · married on 02/19/2017 5.0 Carmen is such a genuinely kind person with lots of patience! I had visioned a small wedding yet very elegant but with her help it was more beautiful than what I had imagined or planned in my head. A wedding is really time consuming no matter how long ahead you start planning but with Carmen by your side, you can expect an easy ride… Carmen, thank you for everything you did for us and for making our wedding so special!
Ley · married on 02/17/2017 5.0 My wedding was this past week! I couldn’t be happier with Carmen’s service as my day of planner. The month before my wedding we were keeping each other up to date constantly and it really helped make the event run smoothly. She is a wonderful person, very professional, and extremely caring! I recommend her without a doubt! Thanks for making my day so carefree!
Natalie · married on 01/07/2017 5.0 Carmen is a phenomenal planner and coordinator! I could not be more pleased with her work, her kindness and patience throughout my wedding process. The passion and talent she has for her work shone through as she effortlessly accomplished all of the requests that I had for my wedding. Carmen went above and beyond for me and her team was excellent at keeping it all together even when my wedding day became a little hectic due to rainfall. Carmen’s assistance and coordination was paramount during the final month of planning and the day of my wedding. I really do not know what I would have done without her! She does not treat brides just like clients, she actually puts her heart into each event she does, and ensures that you are 100% happy! I would recommend Events by Carmen to anyone planning a wedding or event! She is the absolute best!!!
Kristen · married on 12/10/2016 5.0 Carmen was always there to answer my texts and meet up. My mother in law told me not to waste my money on a coordinator. After the wedding she said Carmen and her assistant were worth every penny, they were attentive and overall INCREDIBLE. Thank you Carmen for being a great planner and treating me as a friend.
Ana · married on 11/12/2016 5.0 If you are looking for a reliable and professional wedding planner, then Carmen is the person you want to go with! My daughter’s wedding was a great success thanks to Carmen’s help, and she was always available to answer questions and provide recommendations! We highly recommend Carmen without a doubt!
Daniella · married on 11/11/2016 5.0 Carmen was the most amazing help I could of had. I don’t know what I would have done without her. She’s professional, very knowledgable in the industry, gives great advice, flexible, and reliable! Thank you Carmen!
