Simply Couture is simply EVERYTHING!
There are not enough letters on the keyboard to type how truly AMAZING Teresa is. She is the most detail oriented, communicative, calming force who will go out of her way to make your wedding day (and all the days leading up to it) an absolute dream! She has a way of solving any bump in the road with grace. She coordinated all of our wedding vendors flawlessly, both in advance of and on the big day. Speaking of wedding day, Teresa was literally like my fairy godmother - making sure that I felt 0 stress and could truly enjoy every moment. The day flew by with such precision and ease - all because Teresa made sure everything was perfect! Simply put, hiring Teresa (and the Simply Couture team) was the best decision I made this year aside from marrying my husbandSent on 12/11/2019

Teresa is the QUEEN of all wedding planners!
Where can I even begin? Teresa is an absolute godsend. My (now) husband and I live in NYC and had already set our date and venue when we began looking for planners. I spoke to many different people, and from the first conversation I had with Teresa, I knew she was it. Being from out of state and being the very first couple to get married at a brand new hotel, The Ben in West Palm Beach, we knew our wedding would have many challenges. I am super type-A and very meticulous, and I needed to work with someone who was on the ball and who I could trust to take the reigns, but also someone who would listen to and address all of my concerns and be able to put me at ease. Teresa was all of that and more. In terms of wedding decor, Teresa got to know me and my style so well, and was able to use that to suggest many things throughout the planning process that I absolutely loved and ultimately incorporated. I was so at ease with her that when my wedding day came, I was able to completely relax, knowing that my (actually, OUR) vision would be perfectly executed in her hands. On the logistics side, being the first wedding at a brand new venue has its challenges, but I think even more so with a bride like me who needs to anticipate and plan for everything in advance. Teresa was again, SO on the ball, and had answers for every possible scenario I dreamed up. She also helped find many creative solutions to make everything work in the spaces we had, given that no weddings had ever happened in the venue before. When my wedding day came, Teresa absolutely killed it. I know that there were so many things throughout the day that required a ton of problem solving, but I knew nothing of that on my wedding day--Teresa had the reigns and just let me enjoy my day. Truly, no challenge is too big OR too small for Teresa, and that says so much about her. Our wedding was the most fun and special day of our entire lives and hiring Teresa was a huge part of that. She went far above and beyond her job description in so many different ways, and we are so beyond grateful to have had her in our lives for this special time. I will seriously miss texting with her daily and getting so excited for all of the cool details we were planning for. Simply put, Teresa is incredible and hiring her was the absolute best decision we made!

There are so many amazing things I can say about Teresa. From the second we hired her, I knew we were in great hands. From her daily text messages to her monthly emails, she was always one step ahead. She knew exactly what needed to get done and she even went that extra step to do it for me if I was too busy at work. Her skills as a wedding planning were so evident in how PERFECT the night went. From start to finish there were no mishaps, and if there were she fixed it before I ever found out about it. I can go on and on about how amazing Teresa is but just trust me, hire her and you won't be sorry!!!Sent on 03/20/2020

The best of the best
We chose Teresa’s full package during our wedding planning process and I can surely say that she is hands down the most thorough, organized, and creative person we have met. She is the type of person to read you and know what you want based on your taste. This is extremely helpful as most brides have never been brides before and therefore never planned their own wedding. Speaking of which, she informed my fiancé and I on details we wouldn’t have realized as well as wedding etiquette. I can truly say she took the stress out of wedding planning and made it fun, while both my fiancé and I were working full time jobs. On the day of the wedding, Teresa and Ashley made sure the day ran smoothly and flawlessly. Their amazing work was even noticed by other vendors we hired. Please do yourself a favor and hire Simply Couture Weddings as your planner. Not only did we have a flawlessly executed wedding, we gained a great friend in Teresa and her team!Sent on 03/16/2020

Stop reading and Hire Teresa!
I knew from the beginning there was no way I could plan the type of wedding I wanted without a planner. I picked Teresa because of all her fabulous reviews, and let me say, no review could do her justice. My wedding was PERFECT. It was very important to me that my wedding was traditional, yet still represented our individual personalities and Teresa made it EXACTLY that. I'm still hearing compliments about how beautiful and seamless the entire day was. She knew exactly what venue would be great for us based off our first consult and after that, each vendor we hired based off her recommendations was the perfect fit. She put every little detail together just so to create our perfect dream ceremony and reception. No matter what we wanted, she made it happen and never made any request seem like anything but a simple task.
I think Teresa has a special talent for taking your vision and bringing it to reality and then making it even better, and that is why she is the PERFECT WEDDING PLANNER.Sent on 10/31/2019

I love Teresa's "I've Got This" attitude
Teresa was a pleasure to work. From our first call all the way through to our perfect day, her great suggestions and guidance and "I've got this" attitude made our wedding planning fun and easy. Thank you, Teresa, for helping us create the wedding of our dreams.Sent on 04/01/2019

A dream wedding planning experience
Teresa is truly the most amazing planner! She made my dream wedding come true. Planning a wedding is stressful, especially doing it from afar (my husband and I live in NYC), but Teresa made everything extremely easy and seamless. She was always available via text, email or phone whenever I had even the smallest question. She truly went above and beyond from design to vendor help, etc. Our entire wedding weekend had me in awe. Both Teresa and Ashley had every little detail under control on the day of. We can’t thank you enough for making it the best day of our lives!Sent on 04/11/2019

If I could give all 10’s I would!
Teresa was absolutely AMAZING! She planned my wedding this past November. From when my venue canceled on me and we had to change the date, to the hotel not being completed the week of, Teresa always knew what to do and was always able to get in touch with. I live in Texas and wanted a destination wedding. Even with being in 2 different states, she made the planning so easy for me and was so helpful!Sent on 01/04/2019

Teresa and Simply Couture were terrific with the final wedding plans a month before our event and the day-of coordination. As I was planning from out-of-state, I really needed someone local to help with the logistics and final details. Teresa is amazingly responsive and was extremely helpful in getting all of the final plans and touches in place. I was so impressed by how quickly she responds and how well she knows the local vendor options. It was also a relief to have her there on the day of to make sure everything went smoothly. We couldn't have been happier with our wedding weekend!Sent on 08/05/2018

Working with Teresa was a dream! She helped make our wedding vision become a perfect reality! I would recommend her a million times. Her attention to detail was impeccable and she was very receptive and flexible through out the entire process. Her work ethic is out of this world and I felt so comfortable the entire wedding day knowing that she was in charge. THANK YOU FOR THE PERFECT WEDDING!Sent on 08/14/2018

Simply Couture Weddings was one of the best decisions we made throughout the entire wedding process! If you’re unsure whether or not the investment is worth it, it absolutely is!!! Teresa and Ashley were so helpful and organized on the day of the wedding, they made everything run smoothly! We were able to enjoy the wedding that much more knowing they were keeping us on schedule. Leading up to the wedding Teresa offered great recommendations and promptly answered any questions we had. Teresa is so detail oriented and thinks of everything! We highly recommend Simply Couture to any bride and groom and can’t thank them enough for helping make our day everything we dreamed it would be!Sent on 01/01/2018

What a journey... I started planning my wedding a year and a half in advance and I found Teresa at the very beginning. From our first phone call I knew she was going to turn my dream wedding into a reality. She just got me and my vision and was so easy to talk to. The vendors she recommended were awesome and not only fit my budget but my style as well. The planning process was so smooth. She recommended my venue which was a hidden gem... it was gorgeous and she knew that it would be perfect for what I was envisioning. She answered emails and text messages almost immediately which was great. When we hit "crunch" time she made everything easy... we had a few small hiccups and she handled them with zero stress on my end. On the day of I woke up and got to enjoy every moment. If there were any issues that came up I was unaware. My wedding was amazing! Simply amazing! It turned out to be even more than I had wished and hoped for... Teresa and Ashley made that happen. I am so happy that I chose Teresa and Simply Couture Weddings for my big day!Sent on 02/06/2018

We never would have had as picture perfect of a day as we had without Teresa and her awesome team. From day 1 of planning all the way through to post-wedding logistics, Simply Couture was there to take control and make the wedding about what's really important for those who matter most.Sent on 11/28/2017
Rather than having to worry about virtually anything on the big day, the wife and I were able to sit back, relax and have an amazing time thanks to SC.
Teresa's recommendations for the decor, food, flowers, vendors... everything, matched the vibe we wanted to a T and culminated in an absolutely stunning experience for everyone involved. I'd recommend Simply Couture to any couples on the hunt for a comprehensive, painless, and most importantly, FUN wedding experience.

I do not even know where to begin...let's just start out with working with Teresa was probably the BEST decision I made to help me with my wedding. Being a major procrastinator and having every single thing possible going on in my life the year leading up to my wedding day, Teresa kept me on top of everything and made the entire process literally stress free - she even got my wedding started FIFTEEN minutes early! Is that even heard of in the history of weddings? Leave it to Teresa to do anything to make your day absolutely amazing! Did I also mention she had her child's pre-k graduation moved to a different day because it happened to fall on the same day as our wedding. I'm telling you - wonder woman! My wedding was absolutely beautiful and went off without any mishaps because of Teresa and her team. Everything was absolutely perfect and stunning. She goes above and beyond to make sure all the little details match and makes it come together perfectly. She is so passionate about what she does and becomes a friend in the process! She listens to your wants and needs and does everything in her power to get it done for you and save you money in the process, all the while, being calm, cool and collected! I honestly do not know what I would have done without her because it was the best decision I think I made for my wedding. Thank you so much for everything you did and making my wedding more than I could have ever dreamed of! If I could give you TEN stars, I would! I would recommend Teresa without hesitation to anyone who is planning a wedding because, like I said, she is wedding wonder woman!Sent on 06/20/2017

If I could give Teresa Fernandez and her team ten stars, I definitely would. We worked together for over a year to plan my wedding and she was amazing from day one. I loved that she was laid back, like me, and very detail-oriented at the same time. From that day on until my wedding day, she was a savior working to get all of the details together for my destination wedding (we live in MD). She was always available for calls, emails, and in person meetings too which I greatly appreciated. The wedding was flawless and beautiful all thanks to Teresa. We really couldn't have done it without her expertise.Sent on 05/25/2017

Words don’t exist to properly describe and give credit to Teresa for how instrumental and amazing she was. If you don’t want to read this whole review take this away: Working with Teresa was the single best decision I made and I’ll be trying to figure out a way to work with her again because I don’t want to lose her.Sent on 06/04/2017
When I first chatted with T, we clicked immediately and I knew that she could see my vision for the wedding, whereas others all seemed to lean towards ideas that were their own. It was like we shared a brain.
We started working together about 10 months before my wedding, and as soon as we started working together a huge weight was lifted off my shoulder. She kept me sane (through the inevitable family drama, and MAJOR issues with the venue), saved me time (finding vendors that matched my vision, working with them directly), saved us money (industry discounts!), and most importantly felt like (and became) a friend.
What’s probably most important for those reading…is that my wedding was executed impeccably. Everything was perfect and it was stunning - we even had the other vendors commenting on how well it was put together.
I would recommend Simply Couture Weddings in a heartbeat for any bride. Teresa is much more than a “planner.” She becomes a friend that is passionate about what she does, has a beautiful eye for wedding design, is extremely detail oriented, and has wonderful relationships within the industry culminating in the most amazing events.

The majority of brides that I spoke with that had a wedding planner, said that it was one of the best decisions they made when planning their wedding. Those that didn’t, often told me that they wish that they had. In trying to save money, my husband and I did as much as we could ourselves (save the dates, invitations, labels, center pieces, etc…), but it was important to me to have a wedding planner on the day of. We retained Teresa (Simply Couture Weddings) well in advanced, based on her high ratings and recommendations on wedding wire. For a day-of planner, she was really involved throughout. She was always available by email, and responded quickly. She provided us with some superb contacts for recommended vendors and offered to review any contract in advance of execution. She asked that we copy her on all wedding related decisions, and when the time came for us to transition all the wedding preparations it was a seamless transition. She executed the vision of our wedding beautifully!!Sent on 01/29/2017
Following the wedding, we received several compliments on our wedding & the décor and good flow of the wedding was noticed by all of the guests. I have 3 siblings, none of whom had a day-of coordinator, so my parents & I had to scramble on the day of the wedding to put everything together and then after it was all over we had to make sure everything was taken care of at the end of the night. For my wedding, my parents only had to get to the ceremony on-time and enjoy themselves.
Our photographer, catering company, and all of our vendors all complimented me on the execution and organization of the wedding. I want to thank Teresa & her assistant for making everything look great, and run smoothly.

I 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 coming, 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!!!Sent on 01/22/2017

I was introduced to Teresa by a friend that used her for her wedding and had nothing but amazing things to say about her and her services. From the moment I emailed teresa to inquire about her services, she was so knowledgeable and willing to help. Being a long distance bride, i was completely new to florida and did not know where to begin, her willingness to help me without even having committed to her yet showed how genuine her work etiquette was. I knew that when I did decided to commit to her, which was the same day i emailed her, I would have unparalleled service. Although she’s an extremely popular wedding planner, from day one she makes you feel like your wedding is the only wedding she is planning. Her attention to detail, quick responses (i swear there are like 15 of her) and her efforts give you ease and comfort you need during what is sometimes a stressful time planning. Her aesthetics, visual direction, her knowledge of the industry, as well as her connections, will give you the wedding of your dreams. I have never seen a wedding get as many compliments as mine, and I give all the credit to her and her phenomenal assistant, Ashley. She has grown to be someone I value in my life and will continue to have a relationship with. Thank you so much for giving me my dream wedding and making my wedding planning process so smooth sailing. xoxoSent on 11/23/2016

From the moment I contacted Teresa, a year before our wedding (before we even had a date or venue) she was so helpful, patient, responsive, professional, accommodating, the list of positive things I could say go on and on. My husband and I were initially thinking we could do all the wedding planning on our own because we knew exactly what we wanted, however, one of best decisions we made was to hire Teresa and the Simply Couture team for our day-of coordination. Had we known what we know now, we would have hired her for her full range of planning services because she was always on top of tasks, communications and even attended a sample meeting with me when I was having difficulty expressing my vision to a vendor. Teresa is truly the most organized person I think I've ever met and was always willing to go above and beyond to make our wedding just as we had envisioned. Her listening skills and calm demeanor amazed me throughout the planning process and we couldn't have been more thankful to have worked with her.Sent on 10/26/2016

My sister-in-law hired Simply Couture Weddings, and as her maid-of-honor, I saw first-hand just how crucial they were to the entire planning process. Ashley coordinated with the bride down to the very last detail, and made sure everything went perfectly. She was extremely organized and made sure the bride didn't have to worry about a thing on her wedding day. She proved to be so reliable and easy to work with that I will be sure to hire Simply Couture Weddings when my big day comes. Just by being in her presence, you can tell that Ashley is experienced and knows what she is doing. She will work with you and do anything to make your vision for the perfect wedding day come to life! When the bridal party arrived for rehearsal, Ashley seemed very familiar with the venue and was able to conduct our rehearsal without wasting a minute of time. The day of the wedding, she and Teresa had the entire ballroom and ceremony area ready to go, so by the time the bride and her party arrived, all we had to do was relax, bond, and enjoy the moment. Beyond that, Ashley is the type of wedding planner who will go above and beyond for her client. She is extremely flexible, and will go out of her way to make sure your wedding experience is flawless. I highly recommend Simply Couture Weddings to anyone who wants a stress-free wedding. Thank you Ashley and Teresa!Sent on 03/24/2016

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!Sent on 03/08/2016
