  • Jen helped us pick our resort for our wedding after we had no idea where to even begin! She really listened to what we wanted and gave us so many good options it was hard to decide which one because we loved them! The time Jen spent sending us the relevant info and organizing our top choices by price and perks is well worth the spend. Also, the fact that Jen can communicate with the resorts in Spanish is very helpful. Jen helped arrange our site visits to the resorts we liked best, provided us with a detailed schedule and contact info for all the people we were meeting with in one place, and gave us a lot of good advice and questions that I would have never thought of. Our wedding day and resort were perfect and we owe a large part of that to Jen! My husband and I have said using Jen is one of the best decisions we made when we started planning the wedding! I can't express how much we loved working with Jen and how much she helped create a great experience for us.

  • Jen planned our destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico which took place in December 2014. We started our wedding planning in January of 2014, and after deciding that we wanted to get married in Mexico, we found Jen through a simple Google search. Jen appealed to us because she was local (in Chicago), and is a native of Mexico. She first helped us decide on a destination in Mexico, and then sent us on a site visit to Puerto Vallarta where she had organized a packed schedule for us to see a ton of venues and vendors (hotels, restaurants, caterers, photographers, etc.). Having had to the opportunity to see all sorts of options, we felt very comfortable about making our final decisions. Jen showed us options we know we would have never found on our own. As the planning process progressed, Jen made herself available to meet with us whenever we wanted and was always patient and generous with her time. She also created a to-do list of activities for us to complete in between each m... Read more

  • We would not recommend Jen's services to other couples. Several times during our planning process we felt her services were inadequate and frankly an added burden to us. She was frequently unprepared and late for meetings and did not provide information different or incremental to what we had researched on our own. We're not sure if this was due to the distraction of her own wedding or typical of her business. In the end, we located and hired most of the key elements of our wedding and did not feel Jen added much to enhance the overall event. Of course, we loved our wedding, but feel that is separate from the services Jen and MyEvent provided. Our Rationale: 1. Lack of attention to detail and failure to follow direction left bride/groom feeling uneasy about every step of the process. Bride and groom could not trust Jen (planner) that things would get done and as discussed. As a result of this lack of trust, the bride and groom were often left responsible for managing not only th... Read more
