Fancy Events is an event planning boutique specializing in weddings and other lifetime moment events. We cater to brides who are looking for more than just a wedding or event planner, but a coordinator who has the same vision, passion, and creativity as she does.

We have been brides ourselves not too long ago and know what today's modern bride is striving for in making her mark in the wedding event world. We are a team of coordinators, designers, consultants, and assistants committed to creating your day with elegance and style, where you too are a guest, able to enjoy every detail without stress. We bring organization, creativity, integrity, elegance, passion, and innovation to the wedding or special event of your dreams.

The E - Shower is Fancy Events' newest venture. Working in the industry many times, clients have expressed the disappointment at a close friend or relative that was missing in her special day. So our team began thinking of a way to incorporate these people in an alternative way with an E - Shower. No longer does that lifelong childhood friend or close family member have to settle for only pictures of an event they too would have liked to be a part of - they can be there for the moment and share in our client's joy.
Fancy Events has received approximately 78 profile views in the last three months.

I just returned from my honeymoon and was so excited to sing the praises of my wedding planner. She created a spectacular event. Complete with fireworks and sky lanterns. She knew exactly what I was going for and took it up a notch without breaking my budget. She is a wealth of ideas and knowledge. My favorite part was her unique alternative to a candy bar. We decided to do a candy apple bar instead with different toppings and coating flavors. It was a big hit. I think one of the other things I truly appreciated was April’s attention to detail. She made sure everything was effortless and handled any situation with confidence and professionalism. She’s a real gem, trust me you’ll be happy if you hire her and completely stress free.

Couldn't Have Done It Without Her April was a pleasure to work with. She single handily pulled off my wedding and it was stunning. Her assistant Sara was so helpful and for being so young very professional. We had a big wedding and when it became overwhelming I was so glad to have April and her crew to turn to. She handled even the smallest of details and kept my budget on track. Her ideas were fresh and creative and she really brought my vision to life. Absolute best. In fact we are now planning my daughter's birthday party. We're doing a glamping party and she is a wealth of ideas.

What an amazing experience April and her team at Fancy Events created for us. A Las Vegas Wedding can quickly turn into a cheese-fest rather quickly but April made it an elegant and intimate affair. The wedding was small with only close family and friends in attendance. She also coordinated our reception back home and it was lovely. She made everyone feel like they had been included in our wedding ceremony even though they were not there by coordinating with our videographer to play a video montage of the ceremony at the reception. We also opted for the E-Bridal Shower and let me tell you it was so touching. My best childhood friend and sister among other family and friends were able to attend virtually and that meant so much to me.

I had April plan my wedding and from the moment I hired her it was a complete disaster. She doesn't care about the bride's vision, she would rather do it her way with her ideas coming to life not yours, and does not like to stick to the budget. She is unprofessional and shows up late to vendor appointments and meetings in her sweats, completely a mess, and makes inappropriate jokes frequently. She is completely immature, always talking back and getting really easily offended and if you disagree with any of her ideas. She even tried to start a screaming match with me about our candy bar she wanted us to have in the middle of a Walmart! The security guards came over to find out what was going on! She is new to the wedding consulting business which isn't really a bad thing except that she claims to have all the big "connections" when she really doesn't know anything or anyone; I found the majority of my vendors on my own and they were way better than anything she recommended. When you can do a better job trolling the internet than she can there's not much she can do to help you. She tries to wave away your wedding planning problems without solving them. Or worse, not even responding when you try to contact her. At one point she was having family issues so we fronted her one of her payments out of the kindness of our hearts and then didn't hear from her for weeks. She also quickly forgot this generosity and stole our money which was the worst of all! She's a con! She told me she needed a set amount of money for flowers but when they arrived the day before the wedding, there was only half of what she said she was ordering and she refused to discuss it with me because we had already "fired her". She ordered a stage and I trusted the amount she told me she needed to pay for it, but when they delivered it, the receipt was for less than what I paid her. We ordered a portable bathroom because our outdoor venue didn't have one and it didn't even show up the day of our wedding. Luckily we had paid her through PayPal so we got the money back by disputing that one through them. She quit the week before the wedding (after her screaming at me in Walmart) and honestly, that was the best part of hiring her and her sister. After they quit, everything with the wedding went smoothly and I was much less stressed. It turned out beautiful and looking back at my pictures I can't point out a single idea of April's that we actually used. If anyone hires her for their wedding it would be a HUGE mistake. She doesn't know anything and she almost ruined my wedding.

What you have just read is fraught with lies. This was a very confused bride, who never understood what she wanted making it very hard to effectively help her. She changed her mind over and over even days before the wedding. Her fiance and his mother were down right rude and hateful. The fiance cussed me out on the phone and I decided then it was best if I didn't finish planning this brides wedding. Everything was done except for all the changes she wanted and had no idea what these changes meant for her wedding. I tried everything I could to make her happy but she just wouldn't listen when I told her something would not work in her budget or how time consuming execution would be. The bride did not live locally and she wanted everything planned on two days only 3 months before her wedding. The vendors she found was before she contacted me but I did accompany her to her meetings and went to subsequent meetings alone several times and negotiated best prices for her. As far as not communicating and the advance goes that was money owed to me not an advance and I have hundreds if not thousands of emails between me and this bride. I even went so far as to have several 2 a.m. or later calls trying to calm her down over personal issues with family members. I went above and beyond for her and am saddened that she still is upset because I refused to be called names, and yelled at in public.
