With 8 months left to go before our wedding, we found ourselves overwhelmed with who to choose on a few aspects of the wedding (i.e. choosing a vendor for invitations and day of stationery as well as rental companies for cutlery, plates and furniture).
We knew that we wouldn’t need a full wedding planner as the big items were out of the way, and day of coordination was almost too little for what we felt we still needed to do. When we came across the partial wedding planning package for Bisous Events, we felt like it had exactly what we wanted!
Within a week, we had a meeting with Jessica to discuss what we’d done, what we still had left to do, and how she could fill the gaps. She asked for our wedding inspiration and what we envisioned, and set us up with various vendors in a timely manner. Even in our discussions with these new vendors, Jessica was always a part of the conversations and provided her thoughts and opinions when we were unable to make a decision – she was able to see the big picture and how various aspects would work together in our venue space.
On the day of the wedding and even in the couple of weeks prior, it was clear one of our best decisions (vendor wise) was choosing Jessica. She was able to coordinate the numerous vendors to ensure that the day went off without any issues. We were given a detailed wedding timeline in the days prior to the wedding, and looking back, the timeline as written was almost exactly the same as what happened on the day of.
All of our guests in attendance had nothing but good things to say about our wedding day, and so much of the success can be attributed to Jessica who made sure that the wedding reflected us through and through. It should also be noted that Jessica got married herself just two weeks prior to our wedding, – how she managed to have this personal time and still handle our wedding, we’ll never know! She was able to tackle everything with a positive attitude and a smile on her face, and we would absolutely recommend Jessica. So many guests commented on how relaxed I was throughout the day, and it was because I knew everything was under control and in good hands with Jessica. Thanks again for everything Jessica, you did an amazing job!! – Shannon

When planning my wedding, I had some concerns about my venue coordinator and sought out a planner to help make sure our day ran smoothly. I found Bisous Events after searching like pages on Instagram and after our initial meeting, I knew I had to have her help with our day. Jessica was amazing to work with and I felt like I was sitting and chatting with an old friend during each of our planning sessions. I actually felt bad a few times following our sessions, because I was worried that I was taking up too much of her time, as we would just continue chatting not always about wedding things. She had great ideas and suggestions, taking into account my own personal style, while making recommendations based on her experience what would look best and function best for our day. Jessica was always prompt with her responses to my questions and as I was pretty laid back kept me on a realistic timeline without being pushy. When speaking with vendors she was forceful when needed and really helped to voice my concerns, which I definitely benefited from. She organized vendors who I wouldn’t have thought of using or likely would not have found. On our actual wedding day, she made sure everything ran smoothly. Before I even had time to voice a concern, she came running over to me once saying “you have a look on your face, what’s wrong”, which is a testament to how quickly she knew my character and personality to know without me saying anything that something was wrong. I would highly recommend Bisous Events and loved working with Jessica! It felt like my friend was at my wedding with me. I truly cannot say enough about how Jessica made our wedding a beautiful event and my vision come to light! – Breanna

Working with Jessica was probably one of the best decisions we made when it came to planning our wedding. We spoke to a few planners before getting her contact information all of which focused on the negative aspects of our wedding day vision and left me feeling helpless. From the moment I spoke with Jessica she was nothing but friendly, positive and offered solutions to the issues the other planners had spoke of. Overall, she reassured me that all of our ideas should be possible and that she would get right on hunting down the best vendors within our budget. The vendors that Jessica recommended to us were also like her very pleasurable to work with and always very responsive. Jessica really has made some wonderful contacts in the Toronto wedding world and knew exactly which one’s would work best for our overall theme. In terms of the big day, I cannot put into words properly how she transformed our reception space into our vision. It was like she was in our heads and pulled out every exact detail. She is also extremely good about coordinating with vendors for the day of and makes sure the entire day goes off without a hitch (literally there were none and that is so rare). She is extremely friendly, organized but also firm which is why I think she gets the job done and is well respected by those she has worked with. Overall, I couldn’t recommend her to anyone more. If you are searching for a planner even just for day of, look no further! – Lauren

Jessica was a great help through the gruelling wedding planning process and made it all easier. We enjoyed our meetings with her- which felt like hanging out with an informed friend who happens to be in the business. She gave us great advice, mediated when things got a bit heated between us, and found the perfect balance for our ideas to work in harmony. She brought our vision to life.
On the day of, we didn’t have to worry about anything. The team of vendors she put together were all stellar and executed our combined vision flawlessly. Jessica and Hillary took care of every little detail as we mingled and danced the night away with our family and friends.
We loved working with Jessica and have already recommended her to a few of our friends! She’s a must-have if you’re planning a wedding. We would definitely use her expertise if we decide to get married again. #TeamGeomantic

My husband and I were initially looking for a day-of-coordinator for our wedding, but the moment we met Jessica we were so drawn by her enthusiasm, passion and friendly personality that we decided to hire her for Planning instead. Throughout the planning process, Jess really took the time to get to know us as a couple and our vision for the day. She was responsive to all our emails and made the time to meet us on several occasions. She connected us with great vendors, came with us to meetings and always had great suggestions to offer. On the day of our wedding, so many people told me that I was the calmest bride they’ve ever seen (vendors included) and it was because I knew that our wedding was in very capable hands. Jess made sure everything was taken care and executed properly. I couldn’t have dreamed of a more beautiful and memorable day and we have Jess and her team to thank for making that possible. -Haydee
Rebecca & Mike
We waited until a month or two before the wedding to decide on a day-of-coordinator and hiring Jessica was one decision we never looked back on. Jessica and I hit it off the moment we met – she is friendly yet professional, has a great sense of style, and really tries to get to know you and your vision for the big day. She went through all our plans and ideas to ensure she understood what we expected on the wedding day and I liked that she made suggestions for not only logistics, but also little decor ideas that I missed or didn’t even think of. She also wasn’t afraid to voice her opinion on her experiences, as she wants only the best for your big day. She is very passionate about what she does and you can see it through her work ethic and overall attitude when corresponding with her. I had no problem relying on her to get things done and she was super responsive throughout the entire process. As the previous reviewer mentioned – it really felt like Jessica was a friend at my wedding and not just a planner. Thanks so much for all your hard work! -Rebecca
Christina & Pat
Jessica from Bisous Events helped me plan my wedding this past July and I could not be happier with the quality of service I received from her and her team. The day of the wedding was executed perfectly and all of the planning leading up to it was enjoyable with the help of Jessica. She is obviously very passionate about what she does and it shows in her work. Her organizational skills as well as her great sense of style made planning my wedding with her a great experience. – Christina
Marieta & Marco
Jessica and her team were so helpful and amazing the day of my wedding. My hubby and I still talk how great she was. She took care of every little detail.. I have no idea what I wouldn’t her. She’s an incredible wedding coordinator and planner! – Marieta
I hired Jessica for a “day-of” event coordination. She was very responsive and offered suggestions based on the plans I had made. She ensured everything we reviewed was executed flawlessly and I was able to enjoy my wedding without any stress! She went above and beyond the typical “day-of” services to ensure everything was set to go and offered great value and peace of mind. I definitely recommend her services!
Joanna & Mike
We engaged Sara and Jessica for the month-of coordination and couldn’t be happier that they were there to help with vendor management. Sara and Jessica were also there to advise on the look and feel of the wedding, and I must say that we were very pleased with the results. They were both very professional and made sure that the wedding went off without any hiccups. There were times where I thought it was going to fall apart, but they somehow managed to hold it all together. Thank you! – Michael (groom)
Dee & Matt
Jess was extremely enthusiastic and so willing to help us from the moment we met her almost 2 years ago! We loved how timely she was with her emails, how flexible she was to work around our busy schedules, and how we could contact her to make plans on the fly – and she always accommodated our last minute requests. We felt that in the weeks before our wedding (and even the months before), she made us feel like we were her most important clients, and that our wedding was the event of the year. We would definitely recommend Jess to anyone we know – we even recommended that our venue make her their preferred event planner, as well! -Dee
Nikolina & Kevin
Jessica did such a great job on the flowers for my wedding. She designed a custom bouquet for me and my bridesmaids and took into consideration everything I asked for. Her price was absolutely fair and the work she did was beautiful. From the glass vases she provided me with to display my flowers on the head table to the cute little boutonnières she made for the guys, I will be recommending her for weddings to come! Not to mension she was on time for drop offs which is vital on the wedding day! Thank you again Jessica, you really made the flower process stress-free and easy for me!! -Nikolina
Daniela & Kamal
Jessica is truly amazing! I simply left the entire events decor in her hands and she did such an amazing job! I couldn’t believe how she created such a beautiful winter wonderland! I was stress free and was able to enjoy my night entirely. – Daniela
Mara & Jeff
We hired Jessica as one of our same day wedding coordinators. We had a large wedding and I wanted someone that would be with me, and my bridesmaids, to make sure everything ran smoothly leading to the reception. Jessica was the perfect choice and executed our vision flawlessly. Jessica went above and beyond what we could have ever expected from her. Jessica attended our rehearsal dinner to get to know our bridal party, contacted every single one of our vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page, and maintained complete poise and composure ensuring that everyone was where they needed to be on the day of. Jessica’s passion shines through her exceptional work. Jessica is a true professional; she is punctual, prepared and completely on point. Our day ran on schedule down to the minute, which speaks entirely to Jessica’s ability as there were 500 guests and a bridal party of 30 people. Jessica just knows how to get the job done; she is somehow everywhere and is able to take control in an unassuming manner. We would highly recommend Jessica to anyone looking for help in planning their wedding and executing their vision. – Mara
