Pour Etre Joli Events & Paper is absolutely the BEST!!!! I used this vendor as my Coordinator (planning and day-of) as well as decorator-my husband I were not disappointed. My opinion was valued and my ideas, or lack of, were brought to life. I was provided with expert advise, very friendly and personal. The level and care that I received made me feel like my mom was helping me plan my wedding. All ideas were executed with careful detail and precise attention. My husband and I are of two different culture however, it was very nicely fused to please both sides (including the mothers). At times when I was lost for vendors or ideas I did not feel the stress. My needs and vision was always priority-nothing was ever too miniscule. The Wedding Day was a breeze thanks to Pour Etre Joli, if anything went wrong I didn't know and I was so at ease-everything was taken care of with the utmost professionalism. As a bride you want to feel special and stress free,you want to know that your day will meet or exceed your expectations-working with Pour Etre Joli I was very satisfied and it is with great please I HIGHLY recommend using this organization.

I truly enjoyed working with this beautiful team. They took away so much stress so that I would be able to enjoy my wedding. With their help I was able to plan the "wedding of the century". (That was their words not mine.) Anything I needed they helped me make it happen within my budget. I will use them again for any other event in a heartbeat. They were a pleasure to work with and they were there to out any fires that came our way.

Giliane is TRULY a miracle worker. Only the pictures can begin to describe what she did for me, but even pictures can't convey the emotional support I received throughout the planning of the event. 

To begin, I only had 2 months to plan for my wedding. I wanted a garden wedding, but my fiance didn't want to wait until the summer or spring to get married. So we took our ideas and our VERY LIMITED budget to Giliane. Though neither one of us were from the Maryland area, I had seen her events many times before, and I knew that if I wanted anything close to my dream wedding, I had to have her as my wedding planner.  

Giliane is a professional. She was available when I needed her, and when I couldn't reach her she promptly called or emailed back. When I couldn't make decisions, she was on it. She was always 5 steps ahead of me. She had timelines and lists of things I hadn't even THOUGHT of. Like, who thinks of wedding dress preservationists or to scuff new wedding shoes so you won't slip on the dance floor? Maybe its just me, but I needed SO much guidance through this process and she didn't hesitate to take charge when needed and to follow specific directions when asked. 

Giliane is an innovator. I only ideas of what I wanted for the invitations and for the wedding day, but my ideas weren't extremely detailed. I sent pictures of things that I liked, but I didn't know how to pull it all together. Giliane took my ideas and what she knew about my personality and turned it into an event I will always treasure. She hand-made ALL my invitations and took the time to address, with a dripping black calligraphy pen, each invitation in beautiful calligraphy handwriting. She designed and hand-made my bouquets; the bouquets I'd viewed online PALED in comparison. Please visit the website to see pictures. 

It was like a dream. She went far beyond what I even expected for the day. The invitations, the programs, the decorations, as well as the food were all exceptional... and the day ran SO smoothly. Without a shadow of ANY doubt, I couldn't have gotten better quality for that kind of budget ANYWHERE in the United States of America. She offers quality, elegance, and professionalism on any budget; what more could you ask for?

Just do it, you would have no regret. I attended a 60th birthday party that was done by Pour Etre Joli Events & Paper and liked what I saw. My daughter had close to 400 guest and the planning was done the couple,parents and coordinator e living in 3 different states. Every minute detail was taken care of. We had a very beautiiful day and we are receiving phone calls, text messages and emails from our guest telling us that it was the best wedding they have attended. My wedding coordinator had a sweet spirit and all other vendors present really enjoyed working with her.

She's going to do my 60th birthday in 4 years.
