I honestly cannot say enough about Swanky Soiree - I don't even know where to begin! Short version: hire them now! Longer version: continue reading!Sent on 04/09/2019
I was hesitant about hiring a day-of coordinator. I work in PR and have planned a ton of events. I really thought I could handle everything on my own. But, after a lot of conversations, I realized I probably needed one, so I began my search. I found Swanky Soiree and it just felt like an instant connection! Christina was super communicative from the start and met with me in person to discuss what I needed for my day. My biggest thing was letting go of the planning and set-up the day-of since I am used to being so involved in event planning.
I tried to have all our decor and additional elements organized in advance for Swanky. I didn't have an exact idea of where I wanted everything placed at the venue, but I figured I'd decide that day. Well, there was no need to decide ANYTHING. Christina and Kourtney took my decor and ran with it - and it was everything I wanted. I literally worried about NOTHING! They did not miss a thing!
Swanky also has rental options too if you don't want to purchase a ton of votive candles or signage, which is a great option because at some point, there is only so much Etsy a girl can take!
They also helped manage the rehearsal and everything with our ceremony and vendors - it was a HUGE help during that last month when you have family asking a million questions and balancing work and wedding planning!
I hired Swanky for the "Month Of" coordination. If you are a planner and organized, this is probably the right path for you. But, if you want some additional guidance, then go for one of their other packages - either way, you won't be disappointed.
After the wedding, my husband and I actually said "MVP for the wedding definitely goes to Christina and Kourtney!"

Best Wedding Planners Ever!
We worked with Christina and Kourtney as our Month-of-Planners and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out! Looking back, I couldn't imagine not having them for the last and most hectic month of wedding planning, especially the day of. Christina and Kourtney were very meticulous and took everything to the next level, allowing me to enjoy my big day!Sent on 04/22/2019

Christina and the Swanky Soiree team were absolutely fantastic!!! She is such a sweet, kind and thoughtful person and she truly made our day unforgettable. From making sure all the vendors arrived on time to setting everything up exactly as we imagined (better, in fact) to always making sure we had a signature drink in our hands, Christina and her team were fantastic! She gave great advice, knew our venue inside and out, was super efficient/effective at communicating, and helped us make an incredible timeline (that we actually followed!) We truly can't thank her enough for everything she did both in front of and behind the scenes to make our day go as smoothly and magnificently as possible. Shout out to having trays of hors d’oeuvres ready for us in our dressing room to scarf down after finishing photos during cocktails!! I truly can’t recommend Swanky Soiree enough!!!Sent on 06/28/2019

Christina and her team were amazing!! Honestly, words can not describe how great they were! Everything from Start to finish!Sent on 04/10/2019
I wasn't sure about hiring a planner, the venue I got married at included a day of Coordinator and I thought that would be enough. I am just so happy we hired Christina for the Month Of Planner. I would not have been able to coordinate all the vendors and get the timeline right. Also, it helped relieve a lot of stress to know she and Kourtney would be taking care of everything!
One thing I wasn't sure how it would turn out was that I had given her all of my decoration extras and had a lot of little details for a de-sanding station I wanted but didn't really have time to give her direction (we also rented a bench and desk from her, both fit our aesthetic perfectly). She honestly didn't need any direction!! She laid everything out better then how I imagined it! It was so beautiful! I was so happy with the way it turned out! She also re-used the bench for our Sweetheart table, which was such a wonderful surprise!!
She was such a calm and friendly person to have making sure things went smoothly. I didn't have to worry at all!
Christina was so easy to work with and answered all of my email questions! I live in NYC and had my wedding in my hometown in Florida, so having her help me the month before was just so great!
Overall, I highly recommend Swanky Soiree. They were all professional and helped me enjoy my day even more! Thank you!!!

The Perfect Wedding Day!
We hired Christina and Kourtney for our month of planning so that we could have a little bit of the stress taken off our shoulders for the day of. My mom and I planned most of the wedding so I typed out for them of all the decor we had and where it might go, I gave Christina full reign to take all the decor and use it where she saw fit and she did ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I mean seriously, everything about my wedding day went PERFECTLY. Everyone kept telling me “everything might not go perfect, don’t get upset” but Christina did such an amazing job and there was literally nothing that went wrong. Her set up was absolutely beautiful and I only wish the wedding was longer so I had more time to take it all in!!!! I would highly recommend using Swanky Soirée for your wedding/event!!!Sent on 04/02/2019

The two best people you could ever ask for!
I can not say enough amazing things about Christina and Kourtney! I knew from the start I was not a wedding planner and I needed people on my side who would turn my wedding day into the perfect day. They guided me where I needed to be and made sure that we had the absolute perfect day! My wedding day was a dream and I know without a doubt it was all thanks to these two amazing ladies and their team! They answered every email and text (which there was plenty of!) and calmed down every single stressful moment of planning. They turned our "backyard" wedding into the most beautiful venue! I am so thankful for Swanky Soiree for giving us the best day ever! 💕Sent on 04/03/2019

Swanky makes planning a wedding easy!
Christina and Kourtney with Swanky Soiree Events are wonderful! They are very professional and organized! I used them for the month of wedding coordination, stationary (menus, table seating cards, & welcome sign), and rentals (chiari chairs, table runners, napkins, etc.). They organized all my vendors and coordinated a timeline of events for the day. They also set up and broke down the event and ensured everything ran smoothly. Kourtney spend the entire day of the wedding making sure everything was just perfect (and believe me, IT WAS!) Thank you so much for all of your help in making my fairy tale wedding come true! I highly recommend Swanky Soiree Events to anyone planning a wedding or party. Christina and Kourtney are amazing!Sent on 12/14/2018

We loved working with Kourtney! 12/01/2018
We were married at the Longboat Key Club - Harbourside on December 1st and had a great Swanky experience! We worked very closely with Kourtney the weeks leading up to the wedding and she was responsive, detail oriented, and organized. We had the option to “upgrade” our 4 hours of Swanky coordination that was included in the Longboat Key Club wedding package to a 1 month planner package which we thought was an excellent opportunity to get to know Kourtney better. This extension of Kourtney’s time and attention allowed us to relax the few weeks before the wedding knowing Kourtney had reached out to all of our vendors, confirmed arrival times, and made sure everything was how we envisioned it – and it was just that! Thank you so much to Kourtney & the Swanky team for making our day so so so perfect!!! We love you!Sent on 12/09/2018

If you can’t decide whether you need to hire a wedding planner - you do. Even if you are having a small wedding or have a small budget. It was by far the best money we spent. Christina and Courtney and their team were amazing. Christina worked with me to design a custom package that fit my budget and my needs. She helped me save money with vendors by using her creative ideas (reusing some ceremony florals in the receptions) and vendor discounts. She really thought outside the box to make everything I wanted a reality within my budget. She and Courtney were incredibly responsive throughout the planning process and on the day of they handled all my last minute needs (I forgot markers for the guest book) and made the entire wedding so calm and enjoyable for me. The entire wedding was flawless - if anything went wrong I had no idea. I also used them for some rentals, lighting and draping (so, so beautiful and so, so worth it), and day of stationary (menus, place cards, signage, seating chart). Everything was exactly what I dreamed of. Seriously, these ladies are amazing. Book them!!!!!Sent on 11/25/2018

Christina and Kourney were exceptional from day one. We were planning a destination wedding, and live all the way across the country. They had every detail nailed down and had the best recommendations. They provided a vendor list and they were all great and it made it so easy to find the perfect ones. I couldn't have asked for better. We are still so grateful to them for making our day even better than we dreamed of.Sent on 07/07/2019

A Great Wedding Planner
As the DJ for Olivia & Nick Russo's wedding, I had the pleasure of working with Kourtney Culler of Swanky Soiree Events. Kourtney was extremely professional and and very easy to work with during the wedding ceremony and reception. She was in control of the entire event and made sure that she kept me in the loop at all times. Thanks to Kourtney the event ran smoothly and she helped to make my job easier as well. I would surely recommend Kourtney and Swanky Soiree Events to any of my Brides who are looking for a Wedding Planner who really knows her stuff.Sent on 10/23/2018

I was told in the last year and a half by so many people not to expect perfection...Sent on 10/27/2018
But that’s exactly how I would describe my daughter’s wedding day!!
From the draping, lighting, flowers and beach presentation to the weather, the water and the people who surround us. IT WAS ALL PERFECT!!
(Even when the hotel could not dim the lights!)
Kristin went above and beyond, and was there for every moment I needed her! She maintained such a calmness!!
(and I know she busted her butt!!) her professionalism was amazing!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
I have lived here most of my life, growing up in Englewood and I will definitely spread the word about your amazing work!
I hope to see you for my sons wedding..although I told him I may need a year to recover!!
Maybe we will see you out on the water!!

Choosing Swanky Soiree for our wedding planners was one of the best decisions we made! Christina and Kourtney were both so accommodating, professional and a pleasure to work with...I don't know what I would have done without them!! We were planning the wedding from out of town which can be a bit stressful but Christina made me feel at ease and confident that I was in good hands from the start. About a month before our big day, Christina called to discuss our wedding timeline and we decided on all the details together. Kourtney then contacted all of our vendors to provide them with the timeline and coordinate arrival and set-up times which made the weeks leading up the wedding completely stress free for me! Due to weather, we had to move our ceremony from outside to inside and the girls took care of everything! The décor they provided was absolutely stunning -from the lighting, to the drapes- and all the items I brought were placed perfectly throughout the venue. Our guests just raved about how beautiful everything looked! It is apparent that these girls love what they do and they are great at it! I highly recommend using Swanky Soiree for you event planners! They will not let you down!Sent on 09/25/2018

What a fabulous job Christina and Kourtney did helping me prepare for my wedding!!!! They were always easy to get in touch with. No question or worry was too small. Not only did they provide their amazing planning services for our wedding, but we were able to utilize their team’s fabulous decorating services. Thanks to Swanky Soirée our special day went off without a hitch.Sent on 02/13/2018

Christina and Kourtney were fantastic to work with. I purchased the one month of planning so did most of the preparation myself but when I handed everything over to them, they were in charge! Once my daughter was in town, they worked directly with her on the final decisions and Katie enjoyed working with them too. The way I had planned the room and wanted it decorated was perfect! They also boxed up all of my personal possessions nicely and put them in the car. I highly recommend them.Sent on 01/24/2018

I couldn't of asked for a better wedding planner than Christina and the Swanky team! I hired Christina as the "month prior" wedding planner, because like most brides I had no idea where to start. Not only was she so professional, but she helped me with every aspect of planning our wedding. When the month prior to our wedding came, she helped finalize everything with vendors, communicated with them for the wedding day timeline, and made sure my husband and I only had to focus on each other!Sent on 11/22/2017
Christina and her team are the best in the business! You can't go wrong working with them or using any of the other services she provides-uplighting, draping, escort cards! OMG!! She's the BEST!!

Alexandra · Married on 11/16/2017
Christina and her team are so professional and organized, it’s no surprise they are so well known in the area. We were very fortunate to work with Christina. She made the process very easy and explained everything to us. The month of the wedding, she took care of communicating with the vendors. The day of the wedding, She and her team took care of setting everything up, working with the vendors, making sure everyone knew where to go and when, and finally packing everything up at the end of the night. I had absolutely nothing to worry about that day and was able to enjoy my day with my family and friends. Working with Swanky Soirée was by far the best decision we made for our wedding!Sent on 11/29/2017

Where to begin?!? Swanky Soiree was my wedding blessing!! I recently got married at the Longboat Key Club and originally only had a day of planner. After starting the planning process we decided to extend to have Swanky for way longer so all we had to do was show up on or wedding day. They executed my vision and went above and beyond to make sure our wedding was nothing less than perfect. Kourtney was there on our wedding day and made sure everything ran on time and we had our glasses full :) Thank you Swanky!Sent on 11/17/2017
