Celebrations Made Simple's mission is to provide professional, reliable and affordable planning service to our clients, making your event one you can ENJOY!

Packages Available:

DAY OF Coordination

For the planner in us all! You have planned your event, but you need someone to ensure everything happens the way you expect. Simply, you provide the details and we take care of the execution!

MONTH OF Planning & Day of Management

This service package is created for couples and families who realize how much there is to do closer to the big day! You, your friends and family will be able to enjoy your wedding day without being put to work, and no one must worry about handling the logistics in the weeks leading up to the wedding, as well as on the big day itself!

Partial Planning Services & Day of Management

These services are best suited for couples and their families who would prefer to take care of the majority of the planning by themselves, but want to ensure that they are able to enjoy their wedding day and not have to worry about handling the logistics. This package is best suited for those that may already have their venue and catering booked (or finalizing the contract).

Comprehensive Wedding Planning and Coordination

As our most popular service, Comprehensive Planning is best suited for couples who would prefer guidance with each step of the planning process. Our planning team will assist in creating and coordinating the couple’s vision from start to finish.

Concierge Wedding Planning and Design Service

These services are best suited for couples who have very busy personal & professional lives and find it important to preserve their personal downtime rather than worrying about planning details. In addition to planning, designing & coordinating every element (don’t worry – you still get to do the fun stuff, like drink champagne and sample cake!) during the planning process, Celebrations Made Simple will provide personal assistance with concierge type services every step of the way.

Estate Wedding Planning and Coordination

A ceremony and reception held at a private residence can be so personal  and unique but requires extra attention to logistics. These challenges (rentals, staffing, power, insurance, etc.,) are critical to the success of the wedding and are best handled by an experienced Private Estate Wedding Team.

Additional Wedding Services

Design Add On (with a packaged service) Rehearsal Dinner Design, Planning and Coordination Newlywed Brunch Design, Planning and Coordination Wedding Weekend Experience (Design, Planning, and Coordination Only

The whole crew at Celebrations Made Simple are beyond amazing. From beginning to end, my 30th birthday event was perfect because of them. They were able to create a party for my personality and style with the budget I had in mind. I would definitely use them as a vendor in the future if the need arises. Cannot recommend them enough!

We had a blast working with Felicia! She was professional, well organized, and very detailed. She exceeded our expectations and went beyond her duties as a day of coordinator. This included contraction vendors, coordinating virtual meetings, and physically attending vendor meetings early on. Her positive and calm demeanor helped mitigate a lot of stress leading up to our big day. Communication was great as she would always respond in a timely manner. In addition, she would always offer to lend her assistance if needed. We knew Felicia would be a great fit after our first initial interview and we were not wrong! We highly recommend Celebrations Made Simple for your event!!!

I have had the experience to work with Felicia from Celebrations made simple for the last year on multiple different events. She has handled every event with the utmost professionalism and creativity. She explores every option to bring her clients vision to fruition and does this in the most cost efficient and productive way. I would highly recommend her to any one who is looking for an event planner and am proud to work with her on any event.

There are 83 reviews before ours, so one would think that there wouldn't be anything else to say. Therefore, forgive me if I'm repetitious. We found Felicia with the recommendation of our caterer, reviewed her on Wedding Wire, and then met with her. Let me just say that we knew within the first 15 minutes of meeting her that she was the planner for us. We are a couple from New York City, and our wedding was in norther Virginia. Even though we thought we had everything under control six weeks before our wedding, within ten minutes of meeting Felicia we knew that we couldn't do it without her. Felicia does have several packages, but none of them quite fit what we needed, probably because we are from out of town, and had already done some legwork. Felicia customized a package for our needs. Then she worked seamlessly with the vendors that we had already selected, yes, even the New Yorkers. In general I am extremely happy to say I got my monies worth. This was not the case with Felicia... We got SO MUCH MORE than our monies worth. Felicia worked tirelessly to make sure our wedding day was spectacular. I know for sure that we stressed Felicia out on multiple occasions. Let me say she handled it without a blink of the eye. She reminded us from weeks out what needed to be done, made sure we did EVERYTHING to ensure our wedding would be amazing. As if that wasn't enough, she handled the event incredibly. Our shuttles were all late, and it was drizzling. Felicia made on-the-fly decisions to ensure that nothing would effect our guests, our vendors, us, or our wedding. Even today, over a week past our wedding, she is still following up with us to tie up loose ends. I highly recommend Felicia. She is truly a gift to the industry. She has her system down pat, and it is so easy to work with her. I don't know if other clients can say this, and if they can then she is even more incredible than I give her credit for, but she is family.

Let's face it, planning a wedding is S-T-R-E-S-S-F-U-L. I was all over the place theme wise, and planning our wedding in Virginia from my home in Los Angeles was no easy task. Luckily, I was referred to Felicia and her team at Celebrations Made Simple, or else I'd probably be in a padded room right now. Felicia was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only did she keep me on top of my priorities and help us fine-tune all the details from beginning to end, she connected me with a variety of vendors and acted as liaison between us to keep communication flowing. She helped us make our fantasy a reality, and her team made sure that everything looked beautiful and was completed down to a "T". Every person who attended our special day mentioned that it was one of the most beautiful weddings they've ever been to, and of course I agree! She has my unwavering gratitude and I recommend her hands-down and hope to work with her again in the future.

Felicia and her team were outstanding from beginning to end! Our daughter had a very limited budget - and lives out-of-state. The long distance planning was seamless and he end result was truly beautiful and even magazine-worthy! Hope to be done with weddings now but will definitely use this company again for future events!

Thanks Angela. We really appreciate it. It was truly a pleasure to share this day with your family.

Felicia and the Staff of Celebrations Made Simple are the BEST in their industry. Celebrations Made Simple coordinated an event on 12.13.14 which was termed "EPIC" by all attendees. It was a truly phenomenal event. They leave nothing to chance. Felicia will remind you or suggest things you might not have thought of or even considered. For my wedding on August 28, 2016, there was NO One else to call but FELICIA>>Celebrations Made Simple. My "Garden Wedding", Reception and Dinner were absolutely AMAZING! My guests were intrigued by the extra, finite, unique touches she and her staff added to our Special Day. I chose some of my own trusted vendors who agree with me wholeheartedly on the professionalism, knowledge and expertise exhibited by Felicia & CMS. THANKS SO MUCH (Again) Felicia AND Celebrations Made Simple for SPECTACULAR WEDDING DAY!!

Felicia and her team did an excellent job at my wedding! We hired her for the rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and post wedding brunch. I can't imagine having a better experience! I was not stressed at all as Felicia took care of all the details. She is amazing and i will use her services in the future for events that we host.

We absolutely LOVED working with Felicia for our wedding!! There was more than one occasion where my husband and I both said "thank goodness we hired Felicia, she was worth every penny". We hired her as a day of planner, but she is so much more than that! She started working on my wedding the moment after we signed our contract. We had multiple meetings together before the wedding to make sure she had a full understanding of each aspect of our wedding, not to mention the many emails & texts we exchanged back and forth. Thanks to Felicia, my stress level the last few months before my wedding was almost non-existent! I could always count on her to check in and make sure I was on track and also make sure I wasn't forgetting anything!! Her many years of experience was so apparent throughout the whole process and she made me feel as though I was her only client. I would HIGHLY recommend using Felicia and her team for your wedding. My wedding ran so smoothly & I didn't have to worry about a thing. They set up all the decorations at our wedding befpre we got there and everything looked so perfect and beautiful!! Thank you Felicia :)

Felicia was the most amazing person to work with and help us get to our wedding day. We wouldn't have made it without her. She thought of everything that we needed and provided opinions and past experiences on vendors we wouldn't have known. She was able to get discounts and deals from vendors and hotels due to her working relationship with those people. Felicia was so responsive either by text or email and was on top of everything. She went above and beyond and I am sad that I won't be able to email with her on a daily basis. I highly recommend using her and Celebrations made simple for your wedding day or other event!
