You can find independent reviews for Save the Date Events on the Knot.com, Google and on Citysearch.com. We would be happy to provide references from past clients and from vendors we have worked with.
Here are notes from a few of our wonderful clients:
As this wedding quickly approaches, I wanted to say thank you for all you have done to facilitate this event. We have been so very impressed with the tender professionalism of Amber and your entire staff. I plan events with my job and I know all of the challenges that can take place. I so appreciate Amber’s attention to detail and the patience she has shown Rachael and I as we make decisions. Amber has provided the perfect balance of direction all the while allowing Rachael the freedom to make this wedding her own. I must admit that when Rachael decided to NOT get married in her home town where all of our business relationships are, I was a little nervous that we would really find someone who could help her put together the wedding of her dreams. Save the Date Events and Amber have been a true blessing in our lives and I just wanted you to know.

Where do I even begin? Amber and Save the Date Events made our wedding happen. Plain and simple. From the moment my husband and I got engaged, I knew we needed a planner…mostly because my mom and I can’t even successfully plan lunch. Amber and I clicked from our very first meeting. She was friendly, organized, and I could tell she really cared about me and my wedding. I was sold from the beginning. The following twelve months were a whirlwind of decision-making and vendor meetings and Amber led the charge the entire way. She was unbelievably organized and had a unique ability to keep me on track–which isn’t the easiest thing to do. We had so much fun planning the details of the wedding. Flowers, invitations, decor, music, photographers– you name it and Amber led me to the best possible vendor to fit the vision of the wedding. EVERYTHING was perfect. Where Amber really shined, though, were the days leading up to the big day. Everything went off without a hitch– rehearsal, hotel accommodations, and transportation. We had so many moving parts that I was afraid something was going to get lost in the confusion– I clearly had nothing to worry about because Amber was on it. Day of the wedding when it looked like it was going to rain, it wasn’t my parents or my future husband that I trusted with the advice of whether to move everything inside, it was Amber. And she killed it. Our wedding was the best day of my life. All I can say is that Amber is the best thing that could have ever happened to my wedding. If I could get married every summer, I would, and I would hire Amber and Save the Date to plan it!

When we started the wedding planning process, I knew I wouldn’t be able to juggle work and planning the wedding I’d envisioned. After reading some reviews, I contacted Save the Date. From our first inquiry, Amber has been amazing. She provided wonderful recommendations for vendors, handled all of the nitty gritty logistics and gave sage advice whenever we had trouble making a decision. She also totally tuned into our style and helped us design a beautiful wedding with lots of unique personal touches. When we began the whole process, we thought hiring a wedding planner was probably going to be worthwhile. After the fact, I would say it was the best decision we made and that we got a great value with Save the Date. Amber relieved so much stress, took tons of work off of our plates so we could enjoy our engagement and wedding, shared ideas and information we would have never discovered on our own and became a friend in the process.

I had the BEST experience with Save the Date Events. Brynn was our wedding coordinator and after meeting her over a year before our wedding, I knew she would be the perfect person to help us. I had a vision of how I thought our wedding should be, and Brynn exceeded all of my expectations of bringing that vision to life. From the very start she provided us with AMAZING vendor options for food, flowers, venues, invitations, decor, etc. which made the process very manageable and seamless. Brynn was EXTREMELY organized, prompt, and creative and was my sounding board and guide the whole step of the way. One the day of the wedding I did not have a care in the world because I knew that Brynn had everything under control, which was the greatest gift myself….and my mom could have. Our wedding could not have been more perfect thanks to Brynn and all of her help.I would HIGHLY recommend Brynn and the rest of the Save the Date Events team for any wedding, party or event planning!

You are seriously the most organized, patient, and tasteful person I’ve met. Seriously, you totally understood what I wanted, and I was blown away to see it come to fruition. You took every ridiculous request I had seriously, and were so good at talking me down from the ledge when I got too ridiculous. Literally, amazed by you – and my parents can’t stop talking about how amazing you are. You may have to be on the hook for my sister’s wedding some day. And I completely appreciate how much time and effort you put in, and just wanted you to know I loved my day. It was stressful, and I’m a perfectionist, and slightly absurd, but it really was my perfect day. Your troubleshooting ability, your network, your coordinating skills – really, I could go on! If you need anything from me, a reference, or you want to use our wedding in publicity shots, or whatever, please please feel free to. I think every “discerning” bride (hopefully not everyone you have is as demanding as me) should know how awesome you are

Working with Brynn at Save the Date was an amazing experience. I was planning a very special night to propose to my wonderful girlfriend Brittany but I was swimming in the details. I contacted Save the Date and got a call back immediately from Brynn. I knew in the first thirty seconds I needed her. I gave her the details and she made all the plans from dinner reservations to flowers to photography. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Save the Date and Brynn whether you are planning a proposal, wedding or other special event. Thank you Brynn…you are a rock star!

I just wanted to reach out to you and say thank you to Save the Date. Brynn was amazing throughout the whole planning process. She understood the vision we were shooting for and made it happen. She was extremely pleasant and fun to work with, which took the edge off some of the more stressful times of planning. The day went off perfectly, and I am very grateful to Brynn and Save the Dates for making that happen.

We want to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us make our daughter’s wedding so intimate and special for us and our guests. You listened and knew what Marissa wanted and guided us to the best people to make it happen. Being in Florida and New York and planning an event at a venue we had only seen in photographs required a lot of trust between us all. You made it very easy! Marissa and Travis had a wedding that was all and more than they had ever hoped for.

Gabby and Brynn – Thank you SO MUCH. Everything was amazing. I know you probably had NO IDEA, but I am a very type A OCD person. I can’t tell you how amazing it was to not worry about all the little pieces that I’ve been torturing myself over for the past year. We owe you our first born!!! And also, I can’t tell you how nice it was for all of us to wake up and have the house look so great and have everything organized! Please feel free to use me as a reference if you ever need one.

Debbie was phenomenal! She helped plan and coordinate our 3-day Hindu wedding down to every detail.

You are a gem!

I am SO overwhelmed with joy today, and although an official thank-you will follow, I just had to say a quick thank you. You are absolutely incredible and I can’t imagine what last night would have been without you. It was more fabulous than I imagined and you are entirely responsible for how smooth and seamless everything was. I felt so taken care of. Every time I turned around something had happened, but I never saw it happening – what an incredible testament to how organized and good at your job you are. You are so good at what you do. I feel so lucky that I found you with a quick online search. Thank goodness and Thank YOU!

We are definitely thankful we hired Debbie to be our Day-Of-Coordinator. She developed a very detailed and organized timeline and was always at our side during the wedding day to make sure everything was running according to plan. Our parents also liked having a go-to person during the wedding day, since they were from out-of-town. If you want to have a stress-free and beautiful wedding day, you need to hire Save the Date Events.

I just wanted to send you a quick shout and thank you for everything at Meghan and Tim’s wedding. You and Gabby are phenomenal and I definitely hope to work with you both in the future. I get a lot of brides from out of town that are always looking for additional help with planning and etc. I am going to send your information along to them! You were awesome…and a whole lot of fun! I really can’t say enough good things about your timeline.

Debbie was the best decision that I made throughout the entire wedding planning process. Having Debbie as my “Day Of” Coordinator was a life saver. A couple of things went wrong (as they tend to do) but Debbie fixed them and made them go away as if they never happened. Debbie brings an extremely high level of professionalism to your event along with her fun and easy going personality. To any bride thinking of going without a coordinator, think again…Debbie allows you to forget about the details that you’ve worked so hard on and truly enjoy your special day. It goes by so fast, you want to enjoy it. Thank you again Debbie, you’re the best!!

September 22, 2007
Wow, what a party! After all the planning, details, worrying, etc, the parts added up to so much more! Thank you for doing so much to make our wedding day so special and spectacular. We really couldn’t have asked for anything more. We can’t thank you enough for all your skill, hard work and passion in making our wedding day such a success!

Debbie is an amazing coordinator. She helped me put things together for the wedding day prior to the wedding, and then took care of all the details at the wedding and rehearsal. I can’t recommend using her enough. Her prices are reasonable, but my ability to relax and enjoy the wedding without having to stress about the details was priceless. You can RELAX and count on Debbie to do do an awesome job.

We can’t begin to thank you enough for all your expert wedding planning and advice. From suggesting bridal shops to wedding chapels to table favors, your help from the beginning has been so invaluable. You have a unique way of balancing your professional role with your delightful personality. I especially appreciate the fact that you never lost sight of the reality that this was Courtney and Travis’ wedding, not the parents wedding. We all had the same agenda to make this the bride and groom’s dream wedding and it was! Courtney and Travis are still glowing over all the wonderful details. The bonus for us is that we not only found the best wedding planner, we have made a wonderful new friend!

Securing Debbie Orwat’s services for our son’s wedding was one the best decisions our two families made. Debbie was well organized, knowledgeable, thoughtful, easy to work with, reliable and responsive. She saved us time, energy, angst, and money. Debbie managed to counsel and guide while still ensuring that the wedding reflected the wishes of the bride, the groom and their families. Her participation allowed us to enjoy the planning process and, more importantly, the wedding day. We highly recommend Debbie as a wedding consultant and coordinator for anyone considering her services.

Returning to school for my second degree was a major commitment and accomplishment. As graduation neared, I knew I wanted a huge celebration, but I didn’t have the time or energy to organize my own party. Debbie was amazing at making it all happen! She came up with a great theme for the party, created unique menu items that carried out the theme, decorated the entire place, and selected fun party favors to hand out to all the guests. I didn’t have to do a thing! Debbie created the perfect party–taking care of all the details and allowing me to relax and celebrate on my big day.
