BEWARE OF THIS Business ! She is a scammer! I purchased invitations from her and unfortunately my groom and I had to change our date this was before they were even printed that we informed her. She than proceeded to say well actually those invitations are no longer available you’ll have to pay an extra fee to re-order new ones. When I asked her why we couldn’t just pay a fee to keep the same invitations and just change the date she insisted they were no longer available. Like really???? And just like that to get our wedding invitations we had to pay $250more on top of spending $500. I still don’t even know what I paid for but at that time I had no idea about wedding stuff so I paid it. Overly friendly at first to try to get your business. She’s extremely unprofessional and honestly just rude and condescending. There are plenty of wedding planners in Tucson that way will do a better job in planning and assisting with your needs and trust worthy.
Candida made our day easy and wonderful! I knew from our first phone call, she was the right decision. She was always advocating for us when dealing with vendors and asked the questions we did not know to ask. Candida helped us make decisions but at the same time always kept us in the driver's seat so it always felt like "our day." There were probably issues on our wedding day but I never knew because she handled each one with grace and efficiency. I've begun recommending Candida to all my friends (even if they aren't engaged). Thank you so much!
Thank you Candida for being amazing at what you do. You helped keep me calm, and helped me plan the perfect day! We appreciate everything you did to make our day truly special! :)
We had a lovely experience with Candida! We knew we needed her the moment we met her. She made lots of helpful suggestions and made it so easy to book all of our vendors. Throughout the whole process there was a ton of open communication. I was able to text or call her anytime with questions or typical bride anxiety. She is a very kind person and is really easy to get along with. The day of our wedding, everything went perfectly. She ran the whole night with poise and I never had to worry about a thing. I would highly recommend Candida to anyone that is on the fence of hiring a wedding planner! It's so very worth it!! She is the best of the best!!!!
I am so happy that we found Candida and we were so blessed to have her be a part of our wedding. She helped us plan the wedding of our dreams while helping us stay within our budget and everything was perfect. Candida is so talented in what she does and I could not imagine what our wedding would have been like without her. She really took the time to understand what my husband and I wanted and she made it happen. Thank you Candida for being the amazing planner and friend that you are!!
I have worked with Candida for almost 5 years now! And it has nothing but professional and elegant service she provides for all her clients!!! She is amazing!!!!
We hired Candida for our day-of coordinator, and she was great. She's very high-energy, has lots of great ideas to stretch your decorating budget, and will make sure that you are stress-free on your day. If there were any problems with our venue or our vendors, I certainly never knew about it. She's a real pro!
What a wonderful experience we had working with Candida! From the moment we first met, she really listened to my vision and had great suggestions. She was so easy to get a hold of throughout the entire process and even helped out with last minute things in between! Our wedding venue had an extremely tight time window for decorating, and Candida and her team not only delivered, but delivered beautifully. Our venue was a clean slate and she made it look so beautiful, all while keeping with my theme and my initial vision. I can't say enough good things about her, she went above and beyond for us and her work is amazing!
I would highly recommend Candida as your wedding or event coordinator! As a photographer, I've worked multiple weddings with Candida. She always works her butt off to make sure everything goes smoothly and looks amazing. She is very friendly and makes takes a lot of stress away from the couple.
Best wedding planner in Tucson!!!
It was a such a pleasure to work with Candida she was so helpful and offered many options to satisfy my wedding budget. I had the pleasure of creating beautiful invitations and thank you cards for my wedding with her professional guidance. I would recommend Candida to anyone that needs help planning their special day! Love, love her!!
We hired Candida to be at our wedding the day of only and she was the one thing people complained about at and after the wedding. She was great in our consultation and we liked her then, but the day of she was bad.. She was rude to our wedding party, our parents, our family members, the list goes on... I had multiple people come up to me (the bride) during our wedding asking who she was and why she is so rude. I guess the tables weren't set up correctly so when my aunt noticed another table that was needed and asked Candida for her help setting it up with her, Candida refused saying she wasn't being paid for that. During our reception she found my husband to tell him we ran out of ice. (Like he really wants to think about that at his wedding reception..) I had a special family ceremony cup that I gave to her for the dinner that was no where to be seen and was lost! Then she followed around our good looking dj for most of the night. I mean why are we paying over $1000?!! People complained about her our entire wedding weekend, which ended up to be an inside joke but still. The wedding budget portion spent with her was our worst choice. Overall, her being rude to our family and friends is getting her this one star. Being rude at a wedding is NOT acceptable.
Candida was great in helping us plan! Everything was great until the day of the wedding-. There was a mix up at the facility and our area for getting dressed had no curtains to hide from guest except a little wall, and no mirror for us to look into. When I asked her about it, she stated she didn't have time to do it and that I had to. I hired her to take care of those things so I could sit back and enjoy. But some of this was a result of the place changing management & a few mix ups which should have been worked out prior! Overall we enjoyed working with Candida- everyone enjoyed the wedding!! ❤️ Thank you Candida & look forward to the next one!!
Candida is amazing. She completely knew and understood the vision I had for my wedding and made it happen. She literally thought of every single detail. I can't thank my good friend for recommending her to me enough. I'm still in touch with Candida four years later.
Candida is by far one of the best event planners I have worked with. She has such beautiful set ups and a great eye for perfection. I would highly recommend using her services for your special event!
We hired Candida back in 2007 when we got married and she was a life saver! Everyone loved her, especially the person who officiated our wedding. He said it was the easiest one he had ever done because she was so organized and had everything worked out for us! We can't thank her enough and have continued to keep in touch over the years. She truly cares about her clients, so if you are looking for someone who takes pride in their work and provides excellent customer service, she is it! She truly is a miracle worker and offers so much for what you pay for!
Candida was the best choice I made for my wedding! I'm not even sure where to start... my husband and I received an email just a few months before our wedding that our recommended decorator for our venue was moving on to other things. We talked to our coordinator, who suggested candida. So we contacted her and she immediately made an appointment time available to us since we are from out of town and wouldn't be back for awhile. When we sat down with her, I wasn't even sure what look I was going for with the venue and basically gave her "I like lanterns and candles" to work with. She took off with her creative skills and showed us several different items that could be used as centerpieces, and talked us through other details that we would have never even thought about. Through out the planning process she was so easy to work with and quickly responded to calls and emails. Needless to say our venue, tables, and ceremony turned out ABSOLUTELY beautiful. It was the most perfect look for us, and it was thanks to Candida. I also want to add that on the day of the wedding both my husband and I called on Candida to do random and last minute things for us. She was happy and excited to help out!! We loved working with Candida every step of the way!!
I cannot say enough about Candida!! From the moment we met I knew right away I wanted her to be apart of our Wedding! Her Vibes and energy are the best!! I am very indecisive and with all of her suggestions and help she took so much off my plate and put my worries at ease. The day of our Wedding everything was PERFECT she had everything running smoothly I did not stress about anything!! Candida and her team did amazing on decor, flowers, recommended vendors..Everything!! Thank you so VERY much for making our Wedding Day so special!!
Candida provided the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets for my daughter's wedding. She provided much needed advice to be sure the flowers we chose would withstand an outdoor July ceremony. Not only did the flowers look beautiful the day of the wedding but two days later they were still beautiful.
Candida has been absolutely wonderful. Needless to say, she never made me feel naïve or anything about how little I knew about wedding planning. Everything from here on out for my big day is now so much clearer, and will run a lot smoother. I will definitely be recommending her to everyone that I know, simply for how helpful she was with my many, many questions! She is knowledgeable, organized, experienced and any who uses her services is extremely lucky. She also has a very unique and classy taste when it comes to decorating, just look at her facebook! All of her masterpieces are on there. She's great with chandeliers. Thank you, Candida, for putting me at ease!
There is only one word to describe Perfectly Planned by Candida "Amazing"! Besides picking the groom my best decision!
Candida is the best ! She was always there when we needed her. She was always pleasant and never once complained despite our thousands of phone calls. The name really says it all "Perfectly Planned by Candida"
Candida was absolutely amazing. She helped us every step of the way. She knows exactly what she is doing, down to the smallest detail and that is what made us feel like we were in the best hands. If I ever felt stressed or had a question, I could easily communicate with her through any means that was best for me. She worked around our schedule and made sure that we had the "best day ever!" Thank you so much Candida! It was a true blessing to have you take part in our happily ever after!
I have worked worked with Candida on several events at the Hilton El Conquistador. She is always pleasant and fun to work with. Her florals are just gorgeous! The designs and lighting are truly spectacular! If you need an event planner in Tucson she will take care of it! You will have peace of mind knowing that your event will go off without a hitch! Do not hesitate to book with her!
I would Highly Recommend Candida for any party planning. Candida was very professional, enthusiastic and had a very positive outlook on every idea that was presented to her! On Candida's web page, she states "My brides become my forever friends". I have known Candida for over Seven years and she has never lost contact even when my Marriage failed. She was very supportive and took the time out to ask if I was doing okay. For those brides or party planners who are needing an extra hand with details, contact Candida, you will NOT be Disappointed. You will never meet another Wedding/Party planner who has YOUR Best Interest at Heart!!
Candida was our wedding planner. Her eye for detail was incredible. She made my dream come true. I will forever treasure our special day. Having her as our planner was the very best decision we made!
Candida Perfectly Plans Your Event! It gives us peace of mind when we do an event with Candida. She has the timeline worked out so we are ready to capture all the great moments with enough time to ready for the next shot as event videographers. She coordinates the schedule not only for our clients needs, but our needs and also all the other vendor's needs. Plus, the venues she decorates look awesome!
Candida and her posse of professional vendors were amazing! I sat waiting to walk down the aisle and blissfully ignorant of a major glassware snafu that Candida just calmly and professionally managed leaving me worry free, she and of course my husband made the fairy tale come true!!!
We can recommend Candida without reservation. Being an older couple in our 70’s we may have had a different view of how we wanted things to go at our wedding and Candida just went right along with us without skipping a beat. She was an excellent resource for additional wedding services, handled all dealings with the venue and communicated when needed. She organized the rehearsal, quietly took care of a seating problem and made our day very special. Our flowers and table decor were just perfect!
Candida did a wonderful ob planning my wedding 5 years ago. She was very accommodating and worked around our busy schedule. The decorations at the ceremony and reception were more than I could have asked for. She had a vision of what I wanted though I was not sure of what I wanted myself. She did a fantastic job.
Candida was absolutely lovely she was able to reschedule my wedding ceremony at the church last minute and plan my wedding with in a few months HIGHLY recommended :)
Met Candida at a wedding fair and knew instantly I wanted to hire her for our vow renewal. Planning a wedding can be so overwhelming especially with so much information and ideas out there on the internet. Candida made it so easy and streamlined. She knew exactly what vendors would work perfect with our budget and with how we wanted our renewal to be. She was a great go between and took care of everything. The day of our renewal everything went so smoothly and I was able to enjoy my day because I didn't have a single care in the world. Will definitely hire her again for any big event that we may have in the future (daughter's Sweet 16 isn't too far away!)
My husband and I could not be more pleased that we decided to work with Perfectly Planned by Candida for our special day, in May of 2014. Candida came highly recommended to us and now I know exactly why! We were impressed with not only the quality of her work and her professionalism, but also Candida's lovely personality. It was important to us to work with vendors who understood our needs and Candida did an excellent job in matching us with the perfect ones. She provided us with helpful and thoughtful suggestions at all times. Candida's work ethic, flexibility, and great personality was exactly what we needed with all of the hustle and bustle around us the day of our wedding. Everything was flawless and we could not have done it without Candida. I highly recommend Candida! My husband and I had a perfectly planned day with absolutely no worries because we knew she was there to help us every step of the way! Azucena and Jeremiah Perry
The BEST of the BEST! Candida Gutierrez works tirelessly, day in and day out, for her brides. This woman handled everything I didn't even know needed to be addressed. My wedding was gorgeous, and it went off without a hitch. She helped us find fantastic vendors, and worked with them to get... Read More discounts on their prices. There were beautiful details that she added in to make sure the ceremony and reception were elegant and classy. She ensured all my vendors didn't take extra liberties with anything, she counseled me on things like hair, makeup, and how to make the most of my day. She was tactfully honest about what ideas (that I thought of) would or wouldn't work. The entire 10 months I worked with her, she advocated for me to bring my vision to life. She was more than just my wedding planner, she became my very good friend. She even sewed me back into my wedding dress when it ripped. The day of the wedding, my family and I only had to worry about getting ready and showing up. Candida made sure everyone was where they should be, when they should be. Hiring Perfectly Planned by Candida is the absolute BEST decision I made in planning my wedding, and I would recommend her to anyone, for any event. We love you, Candida!!
Perfectly Planned By "Candida" comes highly recommended for all your wedding & planning needs!
Candida was so over-the-top helpful in the planning of my daughter, Jan, and her husband, Dans', wedding. She was very patient and listened to our vision for the Wedding Invitations and also the Thank You Cards. She had a huge variety of choices/styles and gave us her professional guidance to pick the "absolute perfect" vintage/pearl & lace invitations and also the beautiful classy "Thank You" cards, including a picture of my daughter and her husband. I would highly recommend "Perfectly Planned by Candida" for any invitation needs as she has the best bubbly personality and the whole transaction went very smoothly. If I could give her 50 stars...I would!!!!!!
Candida was there from the beginning to the end. We had the best experience with Candida.
I contacted this wedding planner for help. We are up in the air right now, hoping for a short engagement as my fiance is being deployed soon. Well, Candida and I set up an appointment for yesterday, Monday 9/25, I specifically said "Ok, I'll see you at 5 pm". The day of, she claimed that we had never confirmed the appointment and made other appointments over mine. I don't know about you ladies but to me, that is a HUGE red flag. Not even being able to keep the consult-I wouldn't trust her with my wedding.
Candida was our wedding planner almost 4 years ago. She was a pleasure to work with and worth every penny! The fact that her business is still going strong shows how truly amazing she is. When I look back at my wedding photos, I have memories of joy and love, not stress or regret. Thanks Candida!!!
I am not entirely sure why this comes up under my husbands name, but it does! : ) My name is Karen Fairbairn. We had the most perfect, and absolutely stunning wedding Oct 7th at our ranch in Catalina. When I first started to plan for our wedding, I had grandiose ideas, in thinking I could do all this by myself. I could plan, get in order, set up and take down, oh and food preparations I have a family full of chefs! My amazing matron of honor suggested to me to look into a wedding planner, she pointed out the reasons why, what was the main focus was me not getting stressed out or spread too thin and my magical day would be bloody awful. Considering that I looked on the Knot website and "found" Candida. From our very first meeting, I knew I MUST "have" her for our wedding. We clicked straight away. My vision and my dreams I explained, she saw it, felt it and provided it for me. The beautiful ceremony set up, the reception area, oh my the lighting, so romantic! One thing that stood out is how she went out of her way to make me happy and special. I found that very soothing and kind. Each of our guests mentioned it was the best wedding they ever attended! The vendors couldn't get over the "venue"! I found Candida on top of things. I did not feel at any time worried or concerned. I knew she was very capable, friendly and professional. I HIGHLY recommend Candida. I can't say enough good things about her.
Candida pulled everyone and everything together... It was totally just the way we wanted for the wedding at our home. It was absolutely gorgeous!
Candida takes time with you and paints the vision of every event to your likes. More than that, her expertise and intuition made us all feel like she could be trusted to deliver an evening that would truly be remembered by everyone as "The Best Wedding we'd ever attended". She has a sense of style and class that her staff respect and because her staff works so closely with her, she always knows what's going on. From the Photographers, Videographers, Limo, DJ, Venue, Caterers, Bakers, Quartets and add-ons too numerous to mention. No one comes close to Perfectly Planned By Candida. A true professional at every level.
This is from a grooms point of view. When choosing a wedding planner a lot of thought went into my wife's and my decision. We went on about 3 or 4 interviews with other planners before deciding to go with Perfectly Planned by Candida. All the other wedding planners either offered a set number of appointments and meetings or charged by the hour. Candida did not put a set number on either, the price we paid included unconditipnal meetings we needed to get all of our ideas and thoughts together in order. From the first time we met her, we knew it was a great match between her and us. Any questions that we had were answered and left me and MOST importantly my fiancé relaxed and calm. I would definitely recommend her to anyone contemplating hiring a wedding planner. She made what could have been a stressful situation into a great event and evening for us and all who attended. Thank you Candida for making my bride the happiest woman in the world! You are amazing!
