Valerie at Event Du Jour was absolutely wonderful to work with - I am lucky to have been introduced to her and would strongly recommend her services to anyone planning an important event.Sent on 10/13/2011
As a person who frequently organizes corporate events for work, I was one of those brides who didn't think I would need any "help" on the day of the wedding. That couldn't have been further from the truth. It was Valerie's day-of presence that made it possible for me to actually enjoy my wedding day. She magically took care of several minor vendor issues that popped up - I didn't even know about them until the following day. She also had to make a few game-time decisions on our behalf due to the weather that I was very happy with.
Valerie also made it easy for me to plan my wedding from another city. She listened to what my husband and I wanted to for our reception and, because she knows absolutely everyone in the Twin Cities area, was instantly able to make vendor recommendations so that I didn't have to shop around for services. I never would have found our florist if it weren't for her.
Overall, I think the best part of working with Valerie at Event Du Jour was that I quickly trusted her - I trusted right from the start that she had my best interests in mind. She was always available to chat or email, so I also felt that she was committed to making my event great. I can't recommend her enough.

Valerie of event du jour ltd was the best investment I made for our wedding. She is smart, responsible, personable and "shows up" in every way possible. As a result, I was simply the most relaxed, happy bride and did not worry about one thing all during the planning process and on my wedding day. I highly recommend her!Sent on 05/13/2010

We met Valerie at the wedding fair a few years ago and really liked her. We told her a bit about our vision for our wedding and she really seemed interested in making it happen for us. I feel that it is extremely important for your planner to be excited for your wedding and have creative ideas on the spot, of which she did. Our wedding was very unique, we got married on Halloween (our favorite Holiday) and really wanted to make it a creepy & elegant affair. It was pulled off so well that our wedding even aired on television on the news that night.(http://www.kare11.com/news/news_article.aspx?storyid=827628) Overall hiring Valerie was the best investment we had in our wedding. She really made everything stress free for us. I could not have imagined handling all the little bumps that are unexpected. I didn't even know there were ANY at all until after our follow up meeting. Thanks ValerieSent on 01/02/2010
