Dream Wedding!!

Choosing A Charming Fete for my wedding was the best decision I made!! I found these lovely ladies on The Knot for my out of state wedding in September wedding and I could NOT have been happier. From the initial phone call to the day of my wedding these ladies have made me feel... Read More I was in good hands. They have been beyond prepared and on point walking me though each step in the process. I haven't lived in Ohio for 10 years so I was very concerned about what vendors to choose, no problem! They sent my a long list of amazing vendors and all I had to do was choose, they handled the rest! From my photographer to the draping company, everyone was the best of the best! Another favorite of mine was the inspiration boards they created, after one conversation they had collected the most amazing images that summed up exactly what I wanted my wedding to look like. It was an amazing visual tool to use for all vendors as well as to show family members the general theme. We met only a few times when I could get back to Ohio but e-mailed everyday leading up to the wedding. Their response time is incredible never more than a day! Now for the wedding day. Holy Moly I didn't have words I just went from table to table in aww. They had brought my dream wedding to life! The flowers were incredible and the cookie table was out of this world!! It was perfect in everyway and they don't stop there, they stay with you the whole night to ensure you are happy and having the best time. If there was any issue I called it out and it was resolved immediately. I will really miss talking to my planners everyday they really helped make this the best day of my life!!!

Best Wedding Ever

I had to plan my Cleveland Botanical Garden wedding long distance from California, so I knew I needed a good coordinator in the area. I'm so glad I chose A Charming Fete! We planned it all by phone and email, (I only came to town once before the wedding) but mostly email,... Read More frequent emailing, almost every day. Whenever I sent them a question I always received a prompt response. Somer and Lisa helped me with everything I needed. I knew they had excellent taste from their website photos and the design board they made for me based on my Pinterest, so sometimes when I felt burned out I just said, "You decide for me" and they made the best decisions! But most of the time I was more involved, like when it came to the photographer I was very picky, and Somer and Lisa came up with way more options than I ever could have found on my own and we ended up with a photographer we loved. They thought of so many things I never would have (but wish I did!) The bouquets were so beautiful and exactly like I wanted and I never even went to the florist. They remembered I mentioned liking figs at the catering tasting, and came up with super cute ways to incorporate them. (Real figs used as place cards and fig preserves for wedding favors!) Somer came to the bakery appointment with a folder of pictures of cakes I would like, which saved the day when it turned out the cake I had wanted to do was impossible. One thing I really wanted at the reception was a lounge area, but the furniture rental the venue referred me to was so expensive. Somer and Lisa's contact set me up with a beautiful lounge for less than half of what it would have cost otherwise. They even helped my fiancé (now husband!) with his outfit and sent us links to some really cool ties and bow ties we'd never have found on our own. They helped my mom with her mother-of-the-bride dress questions too. The day of went so smoothly. And of course the design was beautiful, elegant, fun, personal, and modern vintage, just what I wanted. Our parents told us how many people came up to them and said it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. And Somer saved the day when my bridesmaid did my bustle wrong and it was dragging on the floor. It seemed impossibly complicated to me, but she quickly fixed it in time for the first dance! I'm so glad I chose Somer and Lisa as my wedding planners. I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out!

I don't even have the words! But I will try lol. A Charming Fete is just beyond. They guide you from beginning to end in order to create the aesthetic you're going for. Lauren Hibbard was my wedding planner and if I may say so, my wedding was SO GORGEOUS. Every look that you saw... Read More on Pinterest that you didn't think could be at your event, A Charming Fete can make it happen. Based on what you like/describe, there is a clear vision and a plan.

The best floral recs, the best design ideas, the best details, constant email contact whenever my little bridezilla spirit animal came out. I really can't stress it enough. Hiring Lauren was 100% money well spent. No question about that.

I can't express how grateful I am for A Charming Fete. We live in LA but our wedding was in Cleveland so we were worried about planning from afar, but ACF covered all the bases and made it super easy for us. It was important for us to be able to have 100% creative control and... Read More even do a good amount of fun DIY stuff, and ACF struck a perfect balance in that respect. They filled in all the blanks and always had A+ expert advice for us every step of the way. Erica Lasky was our main planner, accompanying us on every vendor meeting (or even meeting with them without us!), responding happily to texts literally every few hours the week before the wedding, taking care of every concern, keeping a smile on her face even when we were hours behind schedule the day of, and always responding thoroughly and quickly to every call, email, and text. She's such a sweetheart and was such a pleasure to work with. I miss her already! Lisa oversaw the entire process and is such a professional. Her eye for design is impeccable and she always has amazing advice. She was very respectful of every choice we made, while also always being honest if she had a different idea. She somehow read every word of every email (and there were SO MANY EMAILS) and nothing ever fell through the crack with her. I don't know how she does it, with all the events she plans simultaneously. I'm simply in awe of these ladies. They don't charge as much as they are worth. I highly recommend that you do yourself a favor and hire these superwomen, even if you just choose the day-of-coordination package. It'll be the best decision you ever made!

Hiring A Charming Fete was THE BEST DECISION we made during our entire wedding planning process. We had the wedding of our dreams, and there is no way we could have pulled it off without their organization, guidance, expertise, and execution. We had been planning our wedding... Read More for about 9 months when we realized that we were in over our heads. We were worried that we’d spend our whole wedding day trying to coordinate all the moving parts, so we decided to look into potential “day-of” wedding planners. When we met with Tiffany during our initial meeting, we knew A Charming Fete was “the one” (no pun intended). About 3-4 weeks before the wedding, we passed the baton onto Tiffany, and it was the BIGGEST relief. She reached out to all of our vendors and confirmed drop offs/deliveries/pickups/timeline and answered any and all questions our vendors had about the wedding day. As issues popped up, she was on top of them right away, and offering solutions. That is a priceless service to a bride in the last few weeks before her wedding! We found out our priest could not be at the ceremony/rehearsal dinner, and without hesitation, Tiffany said she would be there and would guide us and our wedding party through the ceremony rehearsal. On the big day, I was able to wake up with nothing but excitement because I knew Tiffany and her Charming Fete team had it covered. THIS IS HOW ALL BRIDES SHOULD FEEL ON THEIR WEDDING DAY! And as we knew it would, the wedding day went off without a hitch. Not because there weren’t hitches, but because we didn’t have to know or do anything about the hitches. They had it all covered and then some. Maggie was with us during pictures, carrying my cathedral length veil so it didn’t get dirty, holding my bouquet, and filling my champagne glass before I even knew it was empty They even loaded up all our wedding gifts in their car and DELIVERED THEM TO OUR APARTMENT! Not only did they drop off the gifts, but they put up a bunch of decorations that my mom had left for them. When we arrived to our apartment the next day, it was decked out in the decorations they put up, and all our presents were there, ready for us to open. The icing on the cake is that Tiffany and her team are kind, enthusiastic, and BRIGHT women, and they are a direct reflection of A Charming Fete.

That's commitment. Lisa was also incredible, and gave fantastic design ideas on one of our visits to the venue. At one point, I had reservations about one of the vendors and they both did everything needed to resolve the situation promptly and effectively and helped me feel reassured. My wedding was supposed to be outdoors, and a week before we realized we had to come up with a plan b due to weather. Lauren kept this process as stress free as possible, and helped us get a tent. On the day of, she calmly broke the news to me that we had to resort to plan C due to wind, and I totally trusted her to 'make it work'. She of course made it work better than I could have ever imagined, and it was the wedding of our dreams. I could not say enough about how helpful and creative this team was, and how wonderful it was to spend my entire wedding day not worried about a thing because I knew they were taking care of it to a tee. I can be kind of a control freak when it comes to making sure all the details are perfect, and this company was the perfect fit for my vision. They also recommended our photographer (Addison Jones) and calligrapher (BP Calligraphy) to us, and I could not have been happier with their service as well. Go with Charming Fete!!!

Our wedding would not have been possible without A Charming Fete. We worked with Tiffany, who was always so responsive, positive, and pleasant to work with. I only wish I had hired them sooner, as I tried to find a venue on my own for a few months with no luck. Once I hired... Read More ACF, my job became so much easier. Tiffany immediately provided awesome venue and vendor recommendations. Her design board was amazing and she incorporated all of my (very detailed) feedback. Her vendor recommendations were generally within budget, totally reflected my taste, and saved me a ton of time that I would’ve spent trying to research everything on my own. Tiffany also went above and beyond with helping me contact/book/communicate with vendors throughout the planning process. She booked our hotel blocks, set up and attended vendor meetings with us, obtained vendor proposals/contracts, and ensured the design of the wedding stayed cohesive throughout the process. The week of the wedding, she confirmed everything with all of our vendors to ensure that ACF, the vendors, and my fiancé and I were on the same page, which was extremely helpful. She also put together detailed timelines and floorplan options. Tiffany and Nicole also attended and coordinated the rehearsal, which was so helpful since we had a larger bridal party and a first-time officiant, and we practiced for both an indoor and outdoor ceremony. On the actual wedding day, we didn’t have to worry about anything. Tiffany and her team transformed the barn and handled all of the vendors (and there were a LOT of vendors, since we brought in virtually everything besides tables and chairs), and I was able to just enjoy getting ready with my bridesmaids and family. We were trying for an outdoor ceremony/cocktail hour, but it was raining off and on all day. Tiffany gave us as much time as possible to make the decision, and put us totally at ease with changing to an indoor ceremony. Everything ran flawlessly and looked beautiful because of Tiffany and her team. The owners of our venue were not always the easiest to communicate with, but Tiffany always followed through and got answers from them. ACF and our caterer went above and beyond in cleaning up the venue. After the wedding, Tiffany also worked with our venue when they attempted to keep 100% of our security deposit, and she was able to get some money back for us. I can’t recommend ACF and Tiffany highly enough – they are organized, have great taste, and take so much work and anxiety out of wedding planning.
