I am so thankful for the wonderful words that my couples have written about me. See for yourself what their experience was to hire Souvenir Weddings for their Wedding Planning and Coordination Journey.
You can read more recent reviews on my Google Review Page.
"Nicki and her team were incredible! When we decided to plan our destination wedding, we definitely knew that we would need someone exceptional to coordinate and make everything seamless. And we found her! During our initial call, Nicki was very professional, thorough and attentive to each detail, and took her time to learn of our wishes for the wedding. She coordinated all the vendors and planned the day schedule, and kept everyone in the loop throughout the whole planning process. She accommodated our schedule and met us couple weeks before the wedding to finalize some details. All her hard work and her wonderful team made the day absolutely magical! She was such a pleasure to work with and made our day so special where we could relax and enjoy the moment and celebration knowing everything will be taken care of."
"If you have come this far to read the reviews, you should just stop now and contact Nicki and her team to work with them. Not only was she supremely organized, efficient, professional and supportive she was also extremely kind and a joy to work with. We were able to host an 80ish person wedding with over 15 nationalities coming from over 20 different countries in our home country (where neither of is from originally from) with very minimal stress. Thanks to Nicki and her team our multi-day affair appeared to run without a hitch (and we all know that is nearly impossible to do, or even appear to do). Nicki was able to connect us with an absolute dream team in terms of photographer, videographer, DJ and transportation and was attentive to the smallest details. Adamantly recommend, with rave reviews, five out of five stars and a standing ovation."
"When planning our wedding we were confronted with many decisions, but by far the best one we made was working with Nicki at Souvenir Weddings. Among the challenges we faced were: living in two different countries; planning from abroad; having guests from around the world; and being particular about design and food—we needed to ensure we had a wedding planner that was up for these challenges, and Nicki more than rose to the occasion. From the very first meeting to following up with vendors post wedding, Nicki has been at the top of her game, helping us navigate everything with ease. Working with Nicki made the planning of our wedding very enjoyable. Here are some bullet highlights that made the experience with Nicki stand out:
• She loves what she does
• She listens
• She makes you feel like your wedding is the most important one she has on
• She really works with you to understand your vision and doesn't push her own style on you
• She is always optimistic and realistic
• She loves working collaboratively with people; but always makes sure to keep our interests front and centre
• She takes every new request as a new challenge and gives it her all to find the right solution
• She's a genuine, honest person who is always backing you up—there's no bad surprises with Nicki
We cannot recommend her highly enough. Everything at our wedding was planned out thoroughly; to the point where even our guests were commenting on how well organised everything was; allowing us to enjoy our day."
"We had a four day wedding in Switzerland and it was a literal dream and could not have happened without Nicki. I dont even know where to begin. Nicki was everything and more that you could ask for in a wedding planner. I imagine working with international clients without meeting them and planning one of the most important days of their lives is hard. Nicki spends the time to really get to know you and what you are looking for. She guides you with her expertise on what makes a great wedding but ensures that it’s everything you want. It can be hard making decisions and choosing vendors without us having been able to meet them or even speaking the same language and Nicki helped with all of this. I thought most of the Nicki’s work would be done with planning but I was so wrong. She coordinates and make sure that every moment is magical. She works tirelessly from setting up, to helping you get ready, preparing everyone with whats ahead, helping you make decisions, coordinating with vendors and hotels, staying calm, and having fun. Throughout the process Nicki also became a friend. She truly goes above and beyond for her clients and it is clear how much passion and purpose that her job gives her. She is great with helping with PLAN B (when weather doesn’t go your way). And truly makes everything run so smoothly. I have heard from so many friends how stressful planning a wedding is (and though that may still be true to some degree) I did not feel one ounce of stress the moment the wedding weekend started because I knew we planned and prepared and that Nicki would take care of it all. The amount of gratitude I have for Nicki and her influence on our wedding can not be described in this post you will simply have to experience if for yourself. Thank you so much Nicki our wedding was a dream, pure magic, everything i wanted and more and it was all because of you!!!!"
"Wow! 5-stars doesn’t seem enough!! Nicki went above and beyond!! It’s hard to put into words how truly grateful we are for all the hard work Nicki put into making our wedding the most magical day of our lives! From start to finish, working with Nicki was a dream! She is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and passionate about providing an unforgettable and stress-free service, which enabled my husband and I to relax and enjoy our special day with our loved ones. Nicki’s dedication, excellent attention to detail, creativity, organisation and communication skills brought our plans to fruition. Whilst planning our wedding with Nicki, we faced obstacles such as postponing our wedding because of Covid, and we moved to the other side of the world for work, but this wasn’t a problem for Nicki - she was super supportive, completely flexible and always solution-focused in her approach. I cannot recommend her enough!! Brides and Grooms, you won’t regret it!"
"Nicki is absolutely amazing!! She is organized, patient, and calm (everything you want in a wedding planner). Nicki worked with us through Covid when things were constantly changing---she listened to our worries and wishes and did everything she could to make our dream wedding come true. I would not have been able to pull off our wedding if it wasn't for her. I 100% recommend Nicki to anyone looking for a wedding planner or and events coordinator."
"Our advice to anyone who is planning to get married: Do not hire a wedding planner, hire Nicki.
On paper, Nicki helped us to organise our wedding. In practice, she did much more than that. From our first meeting to the days after our wedding, Nicki accompanied us through the whole process of defining what kind of wedding we want, what will be important elements to us, what are our options, and how do we manage any obstacles on the way. She does this in a way that is never invasive or pushy but always mindful, kind, and highly professional.
Nicki has an exceptional talent for asking the right questions and translating your answers and wishes into actions. No matter what problem you throw at her, she will find a solution that not only solves the original issue but actually makes you think that now you have gained something on top. A real Swiss knife for organising weddings and events!
It goes without a saying that she fully satisfied all the "basics" of what an international wedding planner promises: She fluently speaks an incredible number of languages, quickly followed up on any items left open after our meetings, smoothly ran the event organisation on the day itself, and found us all the vendors that we were looking for, including an incredible wedding venue that exactly matched our expectations.
In summary, if you are still looking for someone to help you organise a special event, you can stop looking and hire Souvenir Weddings & Events."
"Nicki and her team created an absolutely flawless wedding experience for my daughter. All I can say is that they seemed to disappear into the background while seamlessly working throughout the day (and weeks before) to allow the wedding and reception to unfold completely naturally and effortlessly for my daughter, her spouse, and everyone in attendance. As the father of the bride, I was naturally anxious that two things happen: 1) my daughter not spend the day worrying and 2)everyone have a splendid and memorable time. Although I have extremely high standards (being a physician), my expectations were happily exceeded by the professionalism of Nicki and her team.
Specifically, they prepped the rooms for the various events well-ahead of time and meticulously; they integrated perfectly with the hotel staff and catering; they visited the site ahead of the event to make sure everything would go well; and they packed up everything at the end of the night to make the next morning a joy for us.
I rarely if ever write reviews, but felt happy to give five stars based upon my experience as compared to the many weddings I have attended elsewhere."
"I would never have thought of myself as a person who would use a wedding planner/coordinator for their wedding and now I can't recommend it enough. We were so lucky to have Nicki's help to plan and coordinate our wedding. She was consistently responsive and flexible which made the planning process super easy. I loved how she always thought of so many things that were totally not on my radar. She also had great advice on negotiating with vendors which saved us a lot. Another thing we really liked was that she speaks English and German, perfectly. This was very helpful for interacting with all the vendors and our guests!
As the wedding day schedule needed to change on the fly, Nicki managed everything behind the scenes to ensure it ran smoothly and stayed enjoyable for us and our guests. Knowing that all we had to do was relax and enjoy the day was a huge relief. We felt like guests at our own wedding and our friends loved her too! It was truly our dream wedding day and we couldn't have done it without her."
