H ere are just some of what our clients are saying about Devoted to You:
Jasmine & Sunny
Carmen from Devoted to You was our planner, and we definitely think she went above and beyond in delivering our perfect wedding!
First some background, we are living in Hong Kong, doing a destination wedding in Phuket, and Carmen being in Toronto, we were working across three very spread out locations over the past year. We mainly worked through Skype, Whatsapp, and email, and Carmen was very ACCOMODATING in arranging meetings that would work with our timezone and work schedules.
Second, our destination wedding was entirely CUSTOMIZED and held at a private villa for 50+ guests, so this was not a choose-your-package and you’re done arrangement, but pretty much coordinating all the local caterers, florists, entertainment, and logistics from scratch. Carmen did a great job taking our vision and feedback and executing without us having to deal with all of the nitty-gritty details.
Finally, it being a destination wedding, there are many small details that are impossible to work out until we get there, and despite some inevitable hick-ups (the set up workers in Thailand are lazy and left before they finished setting up the previous day once it hit 5pm, DJ came late and some of his equipment didn’t work, photographer re-arranged our procession last minute to get better angles, etc.), Carmen was able to smooth everything over and make sure it did not impact the guests’ experience.
Almost every one of our guests came up to us and told us it was the most SPECTACULAR wedding they’d been to, and we were able to stay relatively close to our agreed upon budget, so we would absolutely highly recommend Carmen and her team at Devoted to You for any wedding, destination or otherwise!

Amanda & Steve
Carmen and Kaitlyn were an amazing team. After meeting Carmen I had confidence that she and her team would do an amazing job. Once I started working with them I realized that I made the right decision. They went ABOVE AND BEYOND what I had expected. They were responsive and solution focused. It was the best investment I made to ensure that my wedding day went smoothly and I was able to relax and enjoy the day.
Thank you so very much for enabling me to have memories I will cherish for a lifetime.
I would highly recommend Devoted to You Inc.

Emma & Nikki
Devoted to You always responds to you in a very timely manner, even across several timezones, as in our case. They will be able to plan your wedding EFFICIENTLY and thoroughly even if you’re not in Toronto, and/or if the wedding is not in Toronto.

Annie & Nathan
I will definitely recommend this vendor to my friends. My planner is professional, CARING, style and detail focused. It was a great experience working with her! Thanks to her we had a well prepared and organized wedding!

Christina & George
Carmen and Jennifer were my planners. They helped my husband and I through the entire planning process, and we could not have done it without them. After our first meeting, I knew we would work well together, but I had no idea that I would make two WONDERFUL friends, and that’s exactly what it felt like; working with friends. They helped me make difficult decisions, and made each step easier than the last. They took the burden of stress off of me during an already stressful time, and I am ETERNALLY GRATEFUL for their hard work.

Sara & Gerry
Carmen and her team were absolutely amazing. I hired Carmen immediately after meeting with her and one of her associates over coffee. She came off as extremely professional and organized from our first contact and upheld that initial impression throughout the entire wedding process. Although I only hired Devoted to You on for the ‘same day’ wedding planning package, Carmen was always available to me before the wedding and NEVER HESITATED TO LEND A HAND whenever she could. For the month leading up to the wedding Devoted to You took over the entire planning process with regards to securing and confirming with all of the vendors as well as creating an extremely detailed timeline for the day of the wedding. I was so happy to have Carmen and her team be a part of my special day as I really felt confident enough to leave it all in their hands so that my husband and I could do nothing else but just enjoy ourselves. Devoted to You offers nothing but 5 STAR SERVICE!!!

Stephanie & Knight
Carmen and her assistant Jennifer have provided the service that is more than my hubby and I can ask for. They helped us plan our wedding in 3 months and it was the PERFECT WEDDING I was dreaming for. Everything went smoothly on the big day. My hubby and I really enjoyed it. They are there from the beginning to the end. We are really glad that we had Devoted to You to be our wedding planning vendor. They are the best.

Shermaine & Denzil
Before ever dreaming of becoming a bride, I’ve always known I wanted a planner for my special day. From my first meeting with Carmen, we CONNECTED in a special way. I knew I wouldn’t have to look any further. I told her my vision and she brought it to life. Our meetings were smooth, with no pressure or stress. She knew the questions I would ask even before I got a chance to ask them. I’ve always heard about how stressful planning a wedding was and up until the day I got married, I was at ease. Stress free. On my wedding day, I had NO WORRIES, besides the normal wedding day jitters. Carmen being involved with the planning for over a year gave me comfort in knowing my day would be perfect. There is nothing I would change about my day, it was without a doubt my dream wedding… perfect. All I had to do was smile for the cameras, while Carmen and her assistants took care of the rest.

Gabby & Barry
GREAT job of keeping us on task and organizing everything from the beginning to the end!

Dave & Zuimei
I don’t really like weddings. The pomp, the ceremony, the expectations… its a lot of time and effort. So when I told my husband, who lives out of the country, that he could have a wedding it came with the condition that I get a wedding planner. Smart move on my part. Hiring Devoted to You, even smarter. Carmen and Elton made the planning process painless and on the wedding day they really went ABOVE AND BEYOND. Everyone mentioned how WONDERFUL the wedding was, how well organized it was, and how it seemed so effortless. Everything was coordinated, from the table runners to the invitations. That is what we wanted and we couldn’t have done it without Devoted to You!

Shiu-Chi & Edgar
Thank you to Carmen! We hired Carmen to be our day of planner but she was SO MUCH MORE for us. Weddings are hectic and busy as it was but both my husband and I were also very busy at work. Carmen help us preserve our sanity with lists and forms made organizing and preparing for our big day a breeze. We are both very thankful that we found Carmen and her team. Early on I had told her that if there were to be any issues the day of our wedding we didn’t want to know about it. We wanted her to handle everything for us on our wedding day and she came through with FLYING COLOURS. She was always calm and cheerful helping us through all our tough decisions and offering just the perfect advice. She was the QUEEN OF CUES the day of our wedding. Everyone knew where they had to be, at what time and how to get there with the help of Carmen and the Devoted to You team. We would and have recommended Carmen to our friends and family. Thanks again Carmen!

Rosalia & Kevin
Thanks everyone at Devoted to You Inc., you all have done a wonderful job for our wedding, especially Carmen for her WELL ORGANIZED schedule planning. We hire Devoted to You Inc for our wedding planner for the wedding day (not planning the entire wedding, we just need them to be there the day of the wedding to help organize things, similar to having a General Manager for the wedding day). Carmen helped us with our schedule rundown 2 months prior to the wedding day, and she also followed up with all our vendors (like photographer/banquet hall/decor) to make sure everything is lined up. Everything went according to schedule that day, we are VERY HAPPY with the result.

Jennifer & Adrian
Adrian and I had the pleasure of working with Carmen for our wedding. She was INSTRUMENTAL in making our wedding memorable, beautiful, but most importantly, as stress-free as it possible! She is one of the most organized people we know, and committed to doing the best job she can. She’s always been there to answer our questions, provide great advice and made the time to see Adrian and I on weekends since we were coming from out of town. Not only that, we believe we have made a GREAT NEW FRIEND. We are so grateful for everything she has done. I know others have felt the same way–some of our guests commented it was the best wedding they had ever been too, honestly! So thank you Carmen, you’re the best!

Andy & Connie
Carmen employs the use of the latest technology to keep things efficient and organized. She showed GREAT INITIATIVE during the preparations, and was always quick to respond to any of our questions and problems in the months leading up to the wedding day. Carmen illustrated her creativity by beautifully setting up our candy bar and reception area in accordance with our theme. She was quick to ADAPT and solve the problems that developed on our wedding day. We would recommend Carmen to help plan and coordinate your wedding!

Kristen & Vince
I just want to say, thanks for everything. You were AMAZING help. I didn’t have to worry about a single thing, it was smooth sailing.
Seriously, I do not know how people can do without a wedding planner. I highly recommend investing in one for those who are still thinking about it.
Keep doing the PHENOMENAL work you do.

Jen & Ken
Jen and I would like to thank Devoted to You for all their help on our wedding this past weekend. Rhonda and Carmen met with us a couple times before the wedding and helped us organize EVERYTHING. They visited the sites ahead of time and helped us check all the big important items as well as the minor stuff. They provided us with planning documents and went through all the details so that we had everything prepared and ready for the actual day.
On the wedding day, Rhonda was there with the bride first thing in the morning at 6am. They helped with the Chinese tea pouring, announcing the photo taking list, facilitated the entire days itinerary, setup of the centrepieces, double checked the table seating arrangements with coordinators at the Paramount Reception Hall, gave us reminders of when the speeches and games were going to start, coordinated with the Videographer and photographer, and so much more.
They were ALWAYS AVAILABLE near us so we could ask them questions and they were able to be our buffer to all the Vendors. They helped with all the usual bridal party tasks so that our friends were able to enjoy the wedding more as opposed to running around and working. Also Rhonda and Carmen did a much better job than what our bridesmaids would have done, as they were much more knowledgeable of how a wedding should run. Their assistance throughout the entire day was VERY CRITICAL in keeping the bride and groom stress free, and so we could enjoy ourselves as well.
Thanks to their organization and reminders, the whole day went very smoothly and according to schedule. And everybody had a wonderful time!
Thank you Rhonda and Carmen!!! Jen and I really appreciate all your help!!!

Your assistance in preparing our wedding iternary, answering our numerous questions, coordinating the photo taking list, keeping us on schedule, and ensuring that all the vendors arrived and completed their work on time was INVALUABLE during our special day.

Fanny & Magno
More than a year ago, we have chosen “Devoted to You” to assist in planning our wedding. I never knew there was so many “stuff” needs to be done for one day of events. We are a very special case as both of us were not living in Toronto, we only come back once a month, making the wedding planning process even harder to do. But Rhonda and Maple took very special care for us, making sure we always have PRIORITY when it comes to appointments, and they’ve done a phenomenal job! All of our guests have enjoyed our wedding and we felt BLESSED to have the privilege to work with them. We sincerely thank you for making our dream wedding day come true!

Trevor & Kimberley
WOW, what can we say about the wedding consultants from Devoted to You and the services they provided? Well, let’s start by saying that they were the 15th wedding consultants that my wife, Kimberley and I interviewed, and the only ones that we both loved and had COMPLETE CONFIDENCE in. Both Rhonda and Maple were very organized, creative, stylish and accommodating at all times. They also lent their ears to my wife on many occasion at very late hours of the night, to comfort her during stressful times. Without their help and contacts, we would not have known about soo many wonderful and creative vendors. The whole wedding planning experience was very smooth and almost effortless, especially on the day of. On our wedding day, everything was perfect because of Rhonda and Maple. Both Rhonda and Maple went above and beyond what we expected from wedding consultants. However, apart from the professional relationship that was established with both Rhonda and Maple, a GOOD FRIENDSHIP was also stuck up. My wife and I agree that the best thing invested for the wedding was acquiring the services of both Rhonda and Maple, but apart from the marriage, the next best thing to come out of it was the friendship with Rhonda and Maple. Thank you both for everything and thanks for coming along for the ride.

Jessica & Rafael
WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS how grateful we are for helping us plan our wedding. From the moment we met with you, you put our minds to ease. We just want to thank you for the time you put into our wedding and putting up with us as well as our families. You took a lot off of our hands and we’re very thankful. It was great of you to take care of those last minute and unexpected details. You even helped wrap up loose ends for weeks after the wedding. We just want to take this opportunity to say that without you none of this would have been possible. Everyone who attended commented on how wonderful everything was.

Douglas & Ivy
Words cannot describe how much we appreciate your help in planning our wedding. Both Ivy and I would like to thank you for doing such an OUTSTANDING job. I know that we gave you both really short notice of our wedding date and were not expecting anything grand, but to my surprise and thanks to you two, we have had one of the best weddings anyone can ever ask for. Your knowledge and expertise of everything that is needed to prepare a grand wedding is quite outstanding. The fact that you two would already have a list planned out for things that might go wrong during a wedding and all the contacts and choices for wedding essentials already convinced us that you knew exactly what you were doing. I guess experience is something really important as well as TRUST, and considering we had absolutely no idea how a wedding should be planned, you convinced us at start that we were in good hands and that we can fully trust you for planning out our special day. I am most honoured to have had you two in charge of our wedding, we would never have had such a BEAUTIFUL wedding and would never know what to do without your professional assistance! Thank you so much!
