Client Love Letters

We are truly humbled to be able to do what we love and are so grateful for the beautiful and heartfelt reviews from our clients, many of whom are now friends!

My best friend shifted gears on her wedding plans due to covid and decided to have an intimate wedding within 3 weeks’ notice at an Airbnb rental property. I knew she needed help so I reached out to Julie from Something Bleu and used her Consulting services. Julie was able to coordinate a photographer in my friend’s budget and style and hair and makeup artist within 3 weeks of the wedding. Her vendor recommendations were great! My friend ended up hiring Julie 2 weeks out from her wedding date for Day of Wedding Coordination and as a guest at the wedding I can say that Julie did a fantastic job stepping in with 2 weeks’ notice. She was very attentive to all of the details, helped keep the day flowing smoothly with the photographer and caterer and made sure the guest tables under the tent were set up perfectly. I would highly recommend Julie to help plan your wedding!

We held our wedding in the backyard of my parents’ house in Framingham. We were dead set on this location, but it meant that we had to be in charge of every little detail including bathrooms, catering, decorations, and tents; anything you can think of! We hired Julie as our Day of Coordinator because we were feeling overwhelmed with all of the moving parts and little details. Julie was extremely professional and competent from the beginning! From her first phone call through the end of the wedding, we always felt like we were in good hands. She did a great job keeping track of all our vendors, making phone calls and emails the week of, and helping with the entire set up of the wedding, including implementing all the decorations and little details.     One thing I really appreciated about Julie was how on the day of, whenever there decisions or issues to address, she would come to me with multiple concrete solutions, and all I had to do was pick one. My husband and I were able to enjoy our wedding to the fullest, and we wouldn’t have been able to without Julie’s help! She was also much more affordable than other coordinators we looked into, but still provided every bit of help we needed!! Highly recommend!

We are so glad we decided to work with Julie! My husband and I lived in two different states across the country while planning for our wedding in New England. Julie's recommendations and insights were key when picking everything from our venue to the decorations. With her experience, she not only provided us with options for vendors within our budget, but she also helped us figure out how to allocate our budget. She was incredibly on top of everything throughout the process. The wedding day went off without a hitch, despite the giant thunderstorm right before our outdoor ceremony. We would highly recommend working with her as you plan your wedding!

Julie is just absolutely wonderful to work with! She is sweet, attentive, responsive and very accommodating. We hired her as our Day of Wedding Coordinator and very happy we did. She took the time to listen to all the details at one month out and one week prior to the wedding day. She contacted all vendors and kept them in check the wedding week. Our wedding day needed a point person to manage the tight timeline as it involved getting the chapel ready for ceremony right after an afternoon Mass, decorating reception venue, as well as getting the Bridal Party to the ceremony right on time while also working with many other vendors with their own timelines. In the end everything went smoothly and all our guests had a grand time. All thanks to Julie who I highly recommend!

Julie coordinated with vendors, helped our reception look gorgeous (we had extra flowers so she placed them all around the space), and made sure guests stayed dry when it unexpectedly rained, using an umbrella to help people stay dry as they shuffled to and from the food station and bar! Thank you, Julie!

Julie was an absolute pleasure to work with! I couldn’t have asked for more. As expected, there are always a few snags somewhere and unfortunately for me it involved one of my vendors. This vendor was surprisingly rude in some of our interactions while trying to handle the problem that arose and Julie was right there by my side to help me confront this problem. She took the reins and helped to assure me everything would be ok when I needed it the most. Aside from my snag she helped bring my vision to the most beautiful reality! My wedding day was perfect and with her assistance everything transitioned seamlessly. I highly recommend her and would use her services again in a heartbeat!

Our wedding day was flawless, thanks to Julie. Before the wedding, she came to the venue with us to meet with the event staff to help coordinate menu, room set up and timeline. She offered great suggestions (things I never would have thought of; we took her suggestions) and was always available if we had questions. She contacted the other vendors to ascertain time-frames (for cake delivery, DJ set up, flowers, etc) and was invaluable to the event staff the day of the wedding... and to us. The timeline she wrote for us was spot on and she made sure that everyone followed it. She got my step son ready for his toast, coordinated all day of activities (paid people, accepted flower and cake deliveries, etc) and on this boiling hot day always had water available to us and anything else we needed.     We have three kids in their twenties and I hope they all get married locally so we can use Julie's services. I really want to have another event just so we can work with her again. Julie's coordinator services were the best investment we made on our wedding day. We would have been ok with no flowers but if we didn't have Julie we would have been lost. Thanks Julie!!

Julie was fantastic. Best wedding gift you can give yourself is this woman as your Day-of Coordinator. My stress level was much more manageable knowing that Julie was going to take care of the last minute details on the big day. I just arrived and enjoyed my wedding, and Julie took care of everything else.

Day of Coordinators are the silent unsung heroes of the wedding day. As a fellow wedding vendor I always encourage brides to have one if they don't already have a full planner or coordinator. So when it came to my own wedding day I knew I needed a day of coordinator to relieve any day of pressures and keep everything running smoothly. I can't even begin to describe how happy I am that I connected with Julie. From our initial conversation I could tell how organized and detail-focused she was. It was also clear that she had a passion for planning and coordinating. She brought up so many great points and reminders that I didn't even think about! And as a fellow wedding vendor I thought I had this on lock. Her communication through the whole process was incredibly professional, reassuring, and kind. When it came to the actual wedding day it was such an incredible relief to not worry about setup and logistics. Instead I could focus on marrying the love of my life and celebrating with my friends. I chose to have my wedding at a venue where I knew that I could bring in all my own vendors I wanted from catering to alcohol to decor. Julie made sure that each vendor knew the correct timeline for deliveries and helped to make sure everything was in place. She even set up the sweetheart table and table decor! And while Julie did an outstanding job coordinating the day and making sure everything ran smoothly, I will be forever grateful for her kindness and genuine willingness to make sure that my husband and I had nothing to worry about. My father has some mobility issues and specific health needs and Julie made sure that my parents were comfortable. Even making sure that my dad got to the reception hall first to make sure he could comfortably access anything he needed. She also checked in on my parents throughout the night to make sure they had everything they were ok. We also had our dog be part of our wedding and Julie checked up on her during the reception a few times making sure she got a few walks and extra attention. My husband and I are forever grateful for the part Julie played in making our day as fun and easy as it was. If you are looking for someone that you can trust with your wedding day, Julie is IT.

I don’t know what we would have done without Julie on our wedding day. She did it all (and more) for us to ensure everything went smoothly. Our families are still raving about her to us, weeks after! Thank you Julie!

My daughter's wedding was perfect! In large part is because that day was handled beautifully by Julie. She was wonderful. I did not have to worry about a thing! I highly recommend Julie as your wedding and event planner.

Julie and her assistant were an absolute pleasure to work with. From all her work behind the scenes to her day of services, Julie did not disappoint. She kept our wedding day moving and most importantly organized. Julie worked extremely well with all of our vendors, especially our venue coordinator. She kept the communication following and made sure everyone followed the timeline which was a huge request of mine. I did not want to be late! I also had a lot of decorations and she executed my vision flawlessly. Overall, working with Julie was a great experience from start to finish and I would highly recommend her!

Where do I even begin? We had a coordinator at our reception venue, but were specifically looking for a Day of Coordinator who could help us with all of the logistics of getting our families and bridal party to our church ceremony and taking care of logistics to get our guests across town to the reception. We initially had a tough time finding a coordinator who could help us with exactly what we needed (without all the extra stuff we knew we didn’t need help with!)-but as soon as we talked with Julie, we knew that all of our wedding day plans were in good hands! Julie was SO responsive over the phone, sent us a ton of resources and checklists to help us get organized before she took over confirming final logistics in the weeks before our wedding. She and Jessica honestly made every happen so perfectly and seamlessly on the day of the wedding that I almost forgot there were logistics!! Our families and guests got to where they needed to be (without a single hiccup!), all of our vendors arrived on time, and Julie and Jessica did an amazing job of handling day-of details so we could simply enjoy our big day. (We had so much fun getting to know them!) They meshed so well with our coordinator at our venue and with our other vendors which was so appreciated. We are beyond lucky we found Julie-she is such a gem and helped make our wedding day perfect!!!

Julie was a dream to work with for my daughter's nautical themed baby shower! Wonderful to brain storm ideas with and always quick to reply. Her service made it a very special day for everyone! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect baby shower for my daughter and soon to arrive baby boy.

Let me start by saying I had no original intention of using a wedding planner. I'm type A and love to plan events. When you start planning a wedding, reality sets in. There are SO many details and vendors and guests to keep track of that you can't even imagine until the time comes. Julie of Something Bleu was the glue that put everything together. She reviewed all the contracts my vendors sent me and helped me communicate with them as well as with the coordinator at the venue. The day of your wedding goes by so fast. There simply aren't enough hours in a day to coordinate everyone, set up the decorations, field phone calls and any last minute problems, get ready and enjoy yourself.     My wedding day was perfect and I truly feel it wouldn't have been the same without Julie. She communicated with me and my husband going back and forth as we were getting ready separately. The coordinator at the venue is simply in charge of the details at the venue. Julie made sure everyone was on the same page and that everything was just how I wanted it. Her help was invaluable! My husband and I HIGHLY recommend her!!
