"Here are a few more concrete things that happened, roughly in chronological order: - We signed a contract and committed half the $350 fee up front ($175). At" this point, the coordinator for the service,
, had been helpful and attentive. - Once the contract was signed, getting any details or a response from
became difficult. We literally went months waiting for her to respond to things and had to constantly nag her. - Lie #1 - Shortly before our wedding she informed us that she was NOT actually the person that would be officiating. She apparently has people she hires to do this despite the fact that we specifically signed the contract assuming it would be her. - Lie #2 - The day before our wedding, we were supposed to have a rehearsal with the unknown officiant (we knew nothing about) and
insisted that we start this rehearsal 3 hours prior to the rehearsal dinner because it would take so long. When this officiant shows up, she says that she has to leave in 30 minutes because she has another ceremony to go to -- they lied to us and deliberately booked another ceremony far to close to ours and we ended up not even having time to rehearse. - The officiant and the coordinator were not gracious in handling this situation and ultimately because of their bad attitude, having lied to use about who would be officiating, and why the rehearsal had to be early, we fired them and had to find another officiant ONE day before the ceremony. - Lie #3 - After all of this,
assured me we would get our money back - Lie #4 - A month later after never receiving money and constantly dodging phone calls (I never actually spoke to her again she lied about being willing to refund us), she claimed she had an identity theft problem and had to wait one month longer. - Lie #5 - After one more month, she lied yet again and told us that she would not pay us back and that because I wanted to purse a refund further, her attorney would contact me shortly. I was never contacted by anyone and I'm sure there was no attorney. We have email records to prove all of this especially after she refused to actually speak on the phone. It was as frustrating of an experience as we've ever had with a local business and we're not hard to please (I've never written a negative review in my life until now). These people were just truly awful to us.

" Their rep called after signing up for their free listing. Said we should try, yes try she said, our premium listings. If you don't like it, you can cancel." I told her I'd think about it. So, without saying yes or no. The next thing I know they're sending me a bill for the monthly charge. -Marked paid. They used the credit card I used when I signed up for their free listing. I never authorized that. They said I did when I didn't respond to their "confirmation email" within 3 days. I didn't know blowing them off and ignoring them saying nothing means "yes"!! Call me stupid, but not calling or responding means I'm not interested. Bottom line, I did not agree to any services. I did not agree to pay for any services. I did not sign a contract for any services. These people should back off and rethink their business practice of deceit and manipulation. If their product is so good, they should be able to
it on the up and up like everyone else does. Resolution should be their acknowledging no services were authorized or contracted for and therefore no contract.

Couldn't be more pleased. They met with us and planned the evening including the play and do not play list. They had great ideas on planning the evening and even visited the venue before the wedding to determine the best place to set up. They crested a Great Wall of sound and light that focused on the dance floor and not into the seating area where guests were able to comfortably talk and watch the dancing. During the entire event they were helpful and flexible. They keep the event moving and organized yet minimized their presence. They kept the focus on the family and attendees - not themselves. Highly recommend them.

We called Fantastic Events initially just to do some decoration for a last minute wedding celebration me and my wife decided to put together for our friends and family. After talking to them we decided to allow them to handle the logistics of making sure the wedding and celebration flowed perfectly. We had already contacted the caterers, band, photographer and minister but Yudi made sure every thing was coordinated. They did a great job and everything came off without a hitch. This was only a 30 people event, but based on my observations they could handle much larger affairs as well, plus they are very nice people to work with.

In the beginning
Meriden Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
is very calm, friendly, and professional. He returns all your calls and answers all your questions. However, once he receives that last payment on the day of your wedding he is seriously MIA. So MIA, that it's scary! I was so nervous thinking that maybe he lost all our footage and was just too afraid to tell us. Finally after 7 months we received our (okay) video and pictures. We were just so relieved to have something we didn't complain, we just accepted them. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. There is just too much procrastination, hassle, MIA, nervousness, conning, and resentment going on throughout this business deal to recommend him to anyone.

and his staff are a delight to work with, they helped us plan the menu for the event, were very flexible with any issues that came up. Staff arrived for set up well before the event and had everything prepared, guests commented on how good the food was. Everything went without a hitch, clean up was a breeze, they left everything in perfect order. Top Notch.

We booked this as the site of our daughters wedding reception over a year in advance. Within 9-12 months of the date the wedding coordinator that we were working with left employment with

. This was concerning and we had trouble contacting a coordinator for a week or so. Then they reached out to us, and from there, we were thrilled with the service. Planning was professional; we had a tasting in order to choose the food. The staff was lovely, professional, taking pride in their work. That show of professionalism, friendliness and taking pride in their work continued through the morning of the event and the evening reception. The cost of

possible in every category. They did all the attendants hair and makeup in my daughter's wedding, my daughter's hair and makeup, and my hair and makeup. It was an amazing experience. It was so relaxing to have them come to us on my daughter's wedding day. The atmosphere was relaxing and enjoyable. Since they came to the wedding venue we didn't have to worry about being late to the wedding.

They did a terrific job. The patio provided a great place for the cocktail party, and they served about 200 guests a great dinner inside. The golf course provided a great setting for wedding pictures. Food and service were great, and the cost was actually much less than I had budgeted. We recommend it highly.

All of our guests loved the photo booth. They had great props - signs, hats, sunglasses. The package was so inclusive - multiple prints for groups plus we received digital copies of the pics at the end of the night.
