Stephanie with Social Butterfly was absolutely amazing.... I could not have asked for a better planner... She made my wedding amazing and a dream come true!!!! She went above and beyond the call of duty... I would recommend Social Butterfly for anyones wedding panning!!! It was flawless and absolutely amazing!!! I can not thank them enough!!!!
If I could go back and do my wedding over again, I would have made Charyl with Social Butterfly Matron of Honor! She was amazing. Words cannot even begin to describe how amazing she was. We had a slight mis-understanding at the last minute with the party supply company and my mother, and within about twenty minutes, Charyl had the problem solved! She was so pleasant to work with and she really took the ball with everything. I didn't feel like I had to worry about a single thing with Charyl at the reigns!
Charyl and her staff are amazing from beginning to end. She recommended some great vendors, set up the venue and decor with perfect attention to detail, contacted all of my vendors even ones I didn't book through her, managed the day of schedule, and was a blast to work with. She has a unique talent for what she does and I cannot tell you how much calmer and more at ease I felt knowing that she was there to handle all of the things that can and inevitably will go wrong on your wedding day. Our wedding day was wonderful and we owe a great deal of that to Charyl!
We wanted to plan and do everything ourselves. But living two hours away from Wilmington, it quickly became difficult. We looked around and priced a few different planners. But Social Butterfly Events was recommended to us, plus she was the nicest planner we spoke to when initially scouting out a planner. We met with her, we clicked, we liked her, she understood our vision of the reception, and we were ready to roll. Charyl did it all! She brought everything I was envisioning together to make it work, made breathtaking pinwheels and backdrops, made everything run smoothly the whole day. Everything was perfect, and I know without her, it would not have been.
Social Butterfly was such a pleasure to work with and created the wedding of my dreams! I was very impressed by their professionalism and overall enthusiasm for planning events. They are extremely creative and were able to bring to life ideas I envisioned for my wedding. Not only did they create a beautiful setting, they thought of every detail to tie together the entire event. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering using a wedding or event coordinator!
Social Butterfly took my image and made it a reality! Everything was flawless and wonderful!!
We loved working with Social Butterfly Events! My husband and I lived in Oklahoma and wanted our special day on Bald Head Island, NC. Living so far away from our wedding location concerned my husband and I, so we decided that hiring an event coordinator was the best way to go! Charyl and Heather from Social Butterfly events were absolutely amazing. They were very responsive, guided us through vendors, and made sure that our wedding day was nothing but perfect! I would reccommend the Social Butterly team to anyone!
Charyl and the entire team at Social Butterfly Events were absolutely wonderful. Since my fiance' and I were not from Wilmington, we were so grateful to have guidance on vendors to use and have help to orchestrate the entire wedding day. From the beginning, Charyl set us up with professional vendors that did a wonderful job. They worked within our budget and created an amazing ceremony and reception site that everyone enjoyed. They were also extremely helpful in organizing and managing the event the day of taking stress off of the wedding party and families. A million thanks!!

Charyl is detail oriented,which is important when planning a wedding. She has a lot of helpful ideas and makes what could be a stressful event, so much fun.
Being in the wedding industry I had very high expections for my big day and lots of ideas. Charyl helped me every step of the was and helped to give me the wedding of my drems! She is organized, talented, friendly and professional. I would and have recommended Social Butterfly to anyone getting married.
Charyl of Social Butterfly Events is an incredible wedding planner. We had the type of wedding where we had to bring in every type of vendor - we loved that we got to choose every detail but it was an incredible amount of work to coordinate everything. Charyl was incredibly skilled at both coordinating, helping me find vendors, and brainstorming solutions. We had a very specific vision and budget, and she made our dream wedding come true. She is hysterical, which helped diffuse my stress, and she always gave me good guidance with the caveat, "It is your wedding, so if you really want this, we will make it happen." She always listened and validated my concerns and wishes. People who attended our wedding said it was one of the best weddings they had ever been too, and some of our vendors even told us, "Weddings just don't get better than this." I really feel that we have Charyl and her staff to thank. Our "Central Park Bicycle Ride" theme went off without a hitch, and it was a magical night. PS Charyl's partner, Heather Ivady, from The Paper Butterfly, did all of our invitations, programs, escort cards, table signs, etc. They were amazing and made our entire theme come to life. Both lovely ladies have incredible personalities and made our wedding planning so much fun. We are so grateful to them!
Charyl was a dream come true to me! She made my wedding day the best day of my life, and I can not thank her enough! I had absolutely no stress on my wedding day because I knew that she was in charge and she would handle any hiccups and make my wedding day wonderful. She certainly delivered! The wedding space that she created looked better than anything I had envisioned in my dreams! When I walked into the reception space I actually had goosebumps looking around and knowing that this was MY wedding! It was stunning! She helped me find the perfect color combinations, layout, details, and splendor. She was beyond a pleasure to work with - she is friendly creative, hysterically funny, and a true professional at what she does! Her love of weddings shows through in her work! I honestly know that my wedding would not have been as amazing and perfect as it was if it were not for her. I would recommend her to any and every bride looking for an excellent coordinator to make their dream wedding a real and stress free reality!! Thank you Charyl and Social Butterfly Events - you rock!!
Where do I begin...I should probably start by saying "WOW"! I met with several planners, but when I sat down at my first meeting with Charyl, at Social Butterfly, there was no question who I would hire. The whole team at Social Butterfly were with me every step of the way! Through every appointment, decision, and the final wedding weekend! After you have gone through the wedding process every bride knows that a wedding is so much more than just a fancy party where you give out free drinks! Social Butterfly provided so much more than just planning. They made the whole process so much fun and the wedding weekend so seamless, I never had to lift a finger! It was truly the most beautiful event I had ever been too, I couldn't believe it actually was my wedding! If you are considering going with anyone else...don't!
Heather & Charyl are absolutely amazing!!!! They took my thoughts and gave us a beautiful wedding. They are very quick to respond and make you feel like you are the only bride in the world. We have made friends for life!!!! Thank you ladies for giving us our dream wedding!!!!
To say that there was a connection after I met with the Social Butterfly Events team is an understatementâ€¦.it was more like after 5 minutes, I knew that they were a perfect fit for me and my wedding! Iâ€™m not like most brides, I had my venue picked out and even some vendors booked, but I had a vision that I quite couldnâ€™t put into place myself and I knew that the team at SBE would be able to make my vision come to life. I was not disappointed at any point during the process. Charyl and her team were extremely attentive in booking appointments and contacting vendors on my behalf. I was also lucky enough to also get to work with Heather and the Paper Butterfly who designed my unique invitations that received rave reviews from both local and out of town guests. The unique approach with the ability to custom design to fit the theme of my wedding was so much better than using the canned templates at stationery stores. The SBE team also suggested vendors and options for things that I had not yet booked like florals and lighting. The exceptional service that Charyl and the SBE team provided made me feel like I was their only client even though I know they were working with many other brides. I didnâ€™t have to worry about a thing for the rehearsal or the day of, the SBE team took care of it all and I was able to relax and enjoy everything at my wedding. Even with the challenge of a crazy rainstorm, SBE made some last minute adjustments and the event space turned out as perfect as I had imagined. Their attention to detail, event management and design assistance is exceptional!! Iâ€™m proud to be a part of the SBE family and I would definitely recommend the SBE team for your most important event!
Charyl and Heather are amazing. They turned my vision for our wedding into a reality. They are creative and reliable and personable. I love these two and anyone who gets married anywhere needs to hire them. Love you guys! Thank you so much!
Love the ladies of Social Butterfly Events! From the very beginning they were giving me wonderful ideas and helping me with any questions I had. They were always easy to get in touch with and responded promptly. The day of my wedding was amazing. Everything ran so smooth and on time. I even had a guest show up late who said he thought he would be on time because weddings never start on time...mine did! If there were any issues the day of, I didn't know about them. Charyl and Heather handled everything with grace and the utmost professional attitudes. They also made me feel so special, like I was the most beautiful bride they had ever seen :) I would absolutely recommend them and I already have. Thank you for everything ladies!
P.S. This review is coming from another wedding professional.
Charyl and Heather are professional and super fun and truly helped my husband and I plan the best day of our lives! They took the time to understand our vision and get to know us as a couple. They helped us pick vendors that fit our style and our budget. They scheduled tons of tastings and meetings and went with us to all of them. Even though they had tons of weddings going at once, they made us feel so special and unique through the whole process. We are 100% confident that our day would not have been as perfect and put together as it was if they had not helped us orchestrate everything!
Social Butterfly made my wedding happen in 3 months and every single person I know has come up to me and told me that every aspect of the wedding was the prettiest/most perfect/best wedding they have ever been too, "honestly!" And they go on and on....thanks to Charyl & Heather and their amazing vendors!
Where do I begin to review Charyl and Heather and all that is Social Butterfly Events? Do I start with how these two amazing women custom made haybale covers (for the haybales that I wanted...which they found, procured, and delivered)? Or maybe it'd better to start by commenting on their extensive network of trusted vendors, all of whom took the time to tell me "how awesome" my planners were, and all of whom were willing to bend over backwards to help the Social Butterfly girls and their bride? Perhaps the best route is to begin with how comfortable and cared for Charyl and Heather made my husband and I (and our whole families) feel, from the first phone conversation with Charyl until heather ushered me to the top of the aisle on our wedding day? Any way I go about it, Social Butterfly rocks. They beyond rock. They took our dreams of what we wanted for our wedding-however out-there and vague they were- and made them into an incredible celebration of joy and gratitude that at once honored who we are as wacky individuals, and also radiated with the importance and tradition that should surround any wedding. Working with Charyl and Heather you get the sense that these girls care about your MARRIAGE and not just your WEDDING. Will they get all excited with you when you find the perfect flowers for your bouquet? Heck yes! Are they going to handle business and keep things running PERFECTLY on your big day? Absolutely. Drunk toasters and all. Marc and I consider these ladies great friends, and we'd get married all over again, with these two, in a heartbeat.
