“My Big Day has been our trusted Event Planning partner for over 6 years. With Christine’s guidance we have created original events and memorable experiences for all of our employees and their guests. I highly recommend My Big Day as a well-rounded and extremely professional event company.”
-Stacy Maatman, VP of Human Resources - Blue Federal Credit Union
"Christine & Team - Thank you so much for all you have done to make our day special and memorable. Your guidance leading up to our wedding and execution helped tremendously. We've already received so many compliments about our wedding. We will be referring you to our friends! Thanks a million times over!"
-Casie & Steve (Bride & Groom)
"We wanted to thank you sincerely, for all of the incredible work you did for our event.
You pulled together a class act in 2 weeks, and made something happen that we couldn’t have dreamed possible through your amazing skills, organizational attributes and contacts. We know that we were unable to market and advertise as we should have due to the fact the grant took so long to be approved, and then a venue site had to be acquired.
But, you pulled everything together without a hitch, in record time! Our appreciation is without measure.
Some of the feedback I have received about the event is as follows:
“Flawless and with fluidity and professionalism”
“Beautifully done and so meaningful to us and our family. Thank you”
“Thank you and thank you for all you do! I’m so glad to have been there”
None of this would have been possible without MY Big Day and all your efforts.
Until we work together again!"
-Trina and Arielle, Boulder County Community Services
My Big Day has expertise we lack in the non-profit sector and is hard to find in current non-profit talent. You somehow straddle the perfect line in understanding the limitations, issues, etc. of nonprofits, how to communicate our message effectively, and you bring a professional skill set extremely needed in the nonprofit sector. You work efficiently, make the absolute best of our limited resources and need zero handholding of overstretched Executive Directors and Boards.
-Deirdre Sullivan, Executive Director, The Family Center/ La Familia
"On behalf of all of us at St. Vrain Habitat for Humanity ReStore, thank you for helping coordinate the Blue Federal Credit Union Discovery Day event! We had such an amazing time with all the volunteers. Several of our staff commented on how organized the day was, myself included, (and we couldn’t have done it without My Big Day Events). Tiffany was fantastic – professional, engaged, and willing to help wherever and whenever needed. It was a wonderful volunteer day. Thank you! We hope to work with you again in the future."
-Hannah Williams, Development Associate, Habitat for Humanity of the St. Vrain Valley

I love working with her and highly recommend "My BIG Day!"

"My Big Day was very responsive and took us in VERY last minute when we decided we wanted some day of coordination. We worked with 4 lovely ladies including Christine, Carrie, Sarah, and Yvette. First they helped getting everything ready in the days leading up to the wedding (vendors, contracts, schedules, etc). The day of they helped decorate, direct guests to our ceremony site and then reception area, manage the vendors, plated food for us specifically so we could mingle with our guests, and overall helped everything go smoothly! We highly recommend them if you are in the market for an event planner!"
-Grace & Traxxon (Bride & Groom)

"My BIG Day saved me. I had been planning a surprise party for my wife's birthday and a couple weeks before the big day, I realize there were A LOT of holes in my plan...or lack thereof. I called Christine and after just a few minutes I knew the party would be go off without a hitch. She was the perfect blend of suggestions, advice, decision making and forward thinking. Whether it was catering or scheduling or directions or site prep, she handled every last detail. By the day of the party my job was just don't mess up the surprise. I did my job and My BIG Day did everything else. My wife loved her party and was completely surprised that I could pull it off without her knowing. The truth is, I couldn't pull it off but My BIG Day can."

-Kim Withers, Chief Executive Officer, Meridian Trust Federal Credit Union
"My husband and I used My Big Day for day-of coordinating of our wedding this fall in Loveland, CO at Ellis Ranch. 3 coordinators from My Big Day were involved in our event and took the time to meet with us on two occasions prior to the wedding. They were not only friendly and welcoming, but very professional and organized. Communication with them was very clear and as the event approached, they eased my worries with prompt communication. Our wedding went exactly as planned, and they did a great job of putting out some "fires" in the background that we had no idea about the night of. I would highly recommend this company for future events as I don't know what we would have done without them!"
-Hannah & Nik (Bride & Groom)
"Christine, Thank you so much for doing everything you promised and more to make Carrie & Dan's wedding a dream come true--- and helping me follow through on such an overwhelming time!!! You are amazing!"
-Marci & Mike (Parents of the Bride)
"Thank you for all of your help, it was very appreciated! Event planning is exhausting. I don't know how you do it all the time. I don’t think I could have gotten everything done without you! Christine and the My Big Day team puts on some amazing events. All of their events are truly one of a kind ranging from Company Holiday Parties to their Signature events that we never want to miss. The My Big Day team helps put on our annual company holiday party and every year more and more employees say that we have out done it again. They are the go to team for any event needing planning, I am reaching out to Christine to help plan my little sister’s bachelorette party this coming year because I know this team will come up with some fun, imaginative and organized fun for all of us."

How to Save your Husband from Anti-social Behavior:
After a year of asking my husband, Dan, to come along with me to one of My Big Day’s events, to my surprise, he wanted to attend. So we went. I must say I was more concerned that he wouldn’t have fun so I spent much of my time checking in. We had a great time! We had fun with really great people. After the event he told me that he wanted to go again next year! Amazing! It’s so nice that there are people who consider everyone when planning an event. We will always be back!
-Kathleen George, Comcast
I have had the pleasure of working with Christine Kovacs Forster and MY Big Day LLC on a number of occasions. Whether she is planning on a birthday party for a ladies group of 30 or a wedding for 300 or a Halloween Party for the masses, Christine is always calm, cool and in control. She is fun, creative and always puts her clients needs first. Christine is always looking for ways to make an event better and more memorable not only for the client but for the vendors she works with as well. When you work with Christine and My Big Day you get a complete package!!!
-Jennifer Kenline, Co-owner, PlayCake Bakers
If I could sum up Christine Kovacs Forster in one word it would be ----- AWESOME-----!!!!!!
I hired My Big Day last spring to be my daughter's wedding planner for her wedding this past September. What a great decision that was. From the beginning, Christine was efficient, organized and so helpful with ideas to make my daughter's wedding day so special. She was very professional but yet down-to-earth with her personality and glowing smile. On the day of the wedding, Christine was there early in the morning until late that night handling every detail with grace and ease. I would recommend Christine in a heartbeat to be anyone's wedding planner as she is that good. LOVE HER!!!!!
-Denise Burgess (Mother-of-the-Bride)

"The Easter Keg Hunt is such a blast! Plenty of booze, treats and surprises. A great way to see downtown Ft. Collins and it's shops, restaurants and of course, bars!"
-Jamie Goodrich, President, JG Brand Consulting
Our wedding day was prefect. Christine, Marissa and Katie were amazing and so focused on us. I'm so glad they were there. The room decorations were so better than I could have imagined. They did such a fantastic job. Thank you so much for everything. You ladies made this overwhelming task of planning a wedding long-distance so easy for me. I can't even express how appreciative we are. And if for any reason I get to recommend you in the future, you can count on it. I LOVED working you you, Marissa and Katie.
- Chris (Bride)
"Creativity. Everyone claims to have it. Few truly do. Christine LIVES creativity in everything she does; work, family, friends. It's as if she can't turn it off. And I mean that in the best possible way! If you're among the lucky to know her, you already know what I'm talking about. Heck, I'd stay friends with Christine just so I can keep getting her Christmas cards! I highly recommend her!"
-John "Hammer" Palazzolo, Radio Personality, SaySomethingImportant.com
Christine & the My Big Day team,
Words can not express how wonderful YOU, and Marissa are!!! The party was above and beyond my vision and it was a total blast!!! Both girls where more then wonderful and the fact that they made me feel glamours and feel like Audrey I couldn't of asked for more! You guys are amazing and I'm so blessed to have found you!! Thank you so much for my gift bag filled with all the little items that made Audrey herself and what helped me transform into Audrey! But most of all thank you for putting up with me and my crazy ideas and making the party look as glamours and amazing as I had pictured!! It looked like Tiffany's inside that ballroom!! I hope I get the chance to work with you guys again!!
-Ana, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" theme party client
Christine with My Big Day is such a wonderful asset, especially for my presentation style as a DJ. She does a wonderful job keeping a wedding reception organized and on-time! All the details and special moments are wonderfully easy to execute because Christine gathers all the players and coordinates flawlessly, allowing me the opportunity to truly perform as the Master of Ceremonies. I can't wait to work with My Big Day again!
-Robert Krueger, Robert Krueger Entertainment

"Our Adult Prom was a blast! I was amazed at how we seemed to go back in time (while still reaping all the benefits of our years) to an event that felt so genuine.

You have been a pleasure to work with!

"Discovery Day was a great day of learning and self-exploration. 2020 has been a harsh year that has demanded a lot of flexibility and attention. It was amazing to have a day dedicated to personal growth and understanding. Although fully virtual, I found the flow of the seminars and the speakers engaging, and fulfilling. I am grateful to the organizers [My Big Day] as well as Blue for the investment in my wellbeing and learning."
-Chandler Elmore, Community Engagement & Development Lead - Blue Federal Credit Union

-Renee’ Holloway, Mother of the Bride
"I look forward to every event Christine puts together, because it's not just and event, it's a full out extravaganza! You don't realize what it's going to be like until you attend, and I'm never disappointed because of all the details involved. Sloshball was crazy fun, and the Easter Keg Hunt was one of the TOP 3 most fun things I've done in Colorado!
-Stacey Nixon, Loyal Party Attendee
"Christine & team, Thank you for EVERYTHING you have done in preparation for our wedding! We couldn't have done it without you!
- Love, Kendra & Bryan (Bride & Groom)
"What amazes me the most about Christine is her unique ability to live and die by a spreadsheet while simultaneously serving as a creative genius. She can be inside and outside the box when she is planning your Big Day! What more could you want in an event planner? "
- Pam Jessen, PJ Productions
"Christine was hired for us as a gift to help with the planning of our wedding since my fiance (now wife) was juggling a full time job and going to school for her masters. (I'll be the first to admit I'm not any help when it comes to this type of stuff.) Thanks to Christine's help along the way and her co-coordinating the actual day, everything went off awesomely. Kelly (my wife) didn't worry about a dang thing the day of our wedding and was able to enjoy it from start to finish. There weren't any last minute crisis' to fix (that we were aware of) or phone calls to make. We both just showed up at the site when we were supposed to and did our thing. So two thumbs-ups and a double fist-pump to Christine and My Big Day."
-Brock Bernatow, Groom
"Christine was a pleasure to work with. I enjoyed her spirit and pace. I hope we get to work together again. She's the perfect event partner."
-Richard Ricchiuti, Zebra JellyFish Photography
"Thank you so very much for all you've done to make Erika & Frankie's wedding day such a wonderful and memorable event. By taking the stress off our shoulders and with your professional organizational skills, we were all able to enjoy this special day to the fullest!"
-Heike & Matthew Parks (parents of the bride)
"If My Big Day has planned it, we want to be there! We have known Christine for a number of years and she is simply the best planner with have had the pleasure of partying with. From birthday parties to weddings, from Adult Prom to Sloshball, there is never a dull moment when Christine is involved. You can always count on her events being well organized, creative, and most of all fun! My Big Day's parties are events that will be remembered for years to come, and we can't wait to continue making these memories!"
