Trustworthy reviews are our priority. Businesses can't pay to change or remove reviews.
Service was good. A couple of changes my wife requested to the ceremony were over looked. I.E no starfish, removal wording from vows, removing last names of children. Just a little miss communication via email. Great listener, easy to speak with, warm smile.
We're back in England now after a wonderful trip and wanted to say thank you again for making our wedding and honeymoon in Florida absolutely fantastic.
The hotel you booked for us was utterly wonderful, and by far the best we stayed in throughout our whole trip, (so much so we wanted to book the extra night!) and the trips you organised were a real highlight as well. The surfing course was wonderful fun (and excellent value), And was a really great way to see more of the natural beauty. What we really appreciate though, is your help in organising our entire stay, (despite the late arrival of our flight!) and making our visit to beautiful south Florida effortless and memorable, your hospitality is something money can't buy!
Many thanks and we hope to be able to visit you again soon!

this company did such a good job for us. They made our day such a special memory. We are very happy together! The photographer was great! Thank you so much for everything that you guys did to make our day so wonderful! We will definitely refer your business to other people. Love all the pics!
RJ was absolutely professional and amazing! I had a vision for my destination wedding and she truly decorated the beach according to my theme. I looked everywhere to find the right decor and look. RJ understood me from the very beginning. Although, we feel bummed out we did not hire her for the wedding reception part because of budget, we know that she stood by the name of her business, Ideal I Do's. She took care of all the details during the beach ceremony and I could not be happier. Being from NYC and having a beach wedding in FL she made me feel at ease. Thank you so much for your professionalism and decor. It was a dream wedding come true. Highly recommended. A++++
THE MOST AMAZING BEACH WEDDING PLANNER A GIRL COULD ASK FOR!!!!!!!!!!
RJhas made my whole wedding planning experience more enjoyable than I could have ever imagined and entirely stress free. She has a very creative eye and really knows how to put things together the right way. She has always been honest and would go above and beyond to give any bride the wedding of her dreams. I couldn’t have done it without her. RJ strives for perfection and after working with her for the past year, it’s clear to me that it’s because the only thing she cares about is making her brides happy. I knew the moment I met her that she was the right wedding planner for me. She was calm, very fair and her work just shows what an amazing and beautiful wedding she is capable of producing. She is the BEST! I highly recommend her and I’m so thankful for everything she has done to make my dream wedding become a reality!! RJ will happily do anything anyone asks to make anyone’s special day the best that I can possibly be!! She is AMAZING!
RJ and staff represented Ideal I Do's, with quality service....I felt as though a burden was lifted off my shoulders from the very 1st time we became acquainted.
This was a fantastic experience with the fantastic company. What an amazing wedding had such an amazing price I didn't think that things that looked too good to be true really were but this company has it all. Price quality perfection. Thank you so much we had a wonderful wedding day on the beach
aweful experience and lies. she used drug addicts from a local halfway house as her "experienced" service people. NONE of them had any experience. DJ did not play music, he simply sang every song and was very repetitive. chocolate fountain was not set up until AFTER DJ was leaving and did not have the fruit we had requested. The day before the wedding we were told we would have to change our menu because squash was not available. It was available, it was just TOO EXPENSIVE for them to buy. I, the groom, called and purchased 6 cases from a vendor, to which i was not reimbursed for, nor was our food cost reduced! The worst part was that the food was SERVED COLD!! She blamed it on "cold plates" but the food was not heated in an oven. It was brought to site cold and put over food warmers cold. Food warmers are to maintain a warm temperature, not HEAT food! We were told the weather was too hot to have salad served at the tables, guests would have to get up and serve themselves, but it was too cold to keep the food hot, or even warm! I had guests going inside using the microwave at the reception site. Our guests were not served and soda even thought we paid for multiple soda selections. Wine and champagne were not poured as we were told it would be. The servers stood around watching our wedding take place and dancing or talking to our families rather than serving!!! We have pictures to prove it! The photographer she provided brought his mother with him. She was telling him and us what to do and putting her 2 cents in wherever she could, even on things not related to the photos! RJ brought her neighbor to help, the morning of the wedding the neighbor told us she had never worked on a wedding before. To top it all off, everyone was wearing sneakers! Not matching uniform sneakers, but random (some dirty) every day sneakers. It truly was very poor.
From day one RJ and her staff have been very helpful. outside of a a few hiccups and a little rain my day was GORGEOUS. Thank you all.
RJ and her staff made my day a dream come true.
My husband and I got married in fabulous Fort Lauderdale Our wedding planner was RJ..she was fantastic! I started planning the wedding only 3 months before the date and all communication was done over email. RJ always got back to me right away and everything was all set the day of the wedding. Everything went smoothly. I would definitly recommend getting married at the beach!!!! All we had to do when we got to Florida was go get our marriage license at the County Couthouse . It was very easy. Our pictures were beautiful as well. We just went with the photographer that came with our package. We got married and the sun was setting during the ceremony, so it was beautiful!!!
We are happy to leave a five star review here. Our wedding was just perfectly planned from start to finish. They really know what they are doing. Steered us to a suitable beach with parking-they really know the beaches here! Very realistic romantic and make wedding planning easy-especially for this nervous bride!! Very responsive I don't think I ever waited more than an hour for a call or email back. Use them for your wedding! You won't be disappointed!
Our ceremony was on a public beach outside a private beach front property. We contracted Ideal I Dos for photography, videography, champagne, steel drummer, chairs and decor. Rained all day, let up to drizzle, determined with the vendor to go ahead and set up. It was apparent the setup was done with objection, since the vendor placed the chairs right in the middle of beach access, instead of on the beach in front of the house - right next to it, where easy access for guests, particularly the bride and groom was available. (Set up was NOT discussed with anyone in the bridal party). So, the whole bridal party had to walk around the guests to the aisle to the altar. Doubtful the vendor did an onsite visit as indicated would be done, to assess the setting, so the ceremony setup would be optimal.
At the time of the ceremony, it was drizzling. However, no photography and no videography per the vendor, leaving NO options for photography - a huge disappointment! (Photos taken at that time did not even show it was raining). I spoke to the would-have-been photographer (left to clean up barely served champagne), who explained the vendor/owner left for another wedding, that another photo shoot would be offered. I commented that this was the place, time, dress, hair and makeup, and another photo shoot was not an option...and we had guests who were taking pictures at that time! The vendor left so hurriedly that she also did not sign or take the marriage certificate, so that she had to 'come by' at 9 pm the next evening to take care of these details.
I also wanted to invite the steel drummer to continue playing, but he too was gone. He played at most 1/2 hour though we paid for an hour. In discussing adjustments with the vendor, she claimed it was "pouring"...we "were lucky that he played at all"... that "this is a shakedown "... and hung up on me.
Sad this money grubbing, unprofessional vendor had anything to do with our wedding!
RJ went above and beyond to meet my needs for our wedding! She was a lot of fun and made our special day so much more special. She was flexible and gave us so much more than she promised :)
Lovely beach wedding service. Thanks for the memories! Jeff and Tara
