In one word.. Perfection! From the moment my fiancé and I met Carissa, we knew we were in great hands for our wedding day! However, I had no idea how much peace, comfort & organization she would bring to the most important day of our lives! I can honestly say, I don't know what we would've done without her!!
Originally, we were having The Party Designers create our wedding invitations, having no intention of hiring a wedding planner. However, we decided to hire her for our "day of" wedding planner. Hands down, the BEST decision Erik & I made throughout our entire wedding process! She thought of everything, every little detail!
I cannot express enough how much stress she relieved. Everything went so smoothly. It was funny and ironic how many times I heard "you are the calmest bride!" For my friends and family that know me, I am FAR from calm. Lol.
Let's face it, things go wrong on your wedding day-Things we have no control of. Carissa & her assistant Tim, (LOVE Tim) handled everything & I had NO idea what went on behind the scenes. As far as we knew, everything was perfect & went off without a hitch.
Both Carissa and Tim have this way of getting "IT" done, without making you feel rushed or bossed around. Lol. They are very professional yet so much fun to work with. They were whipping around the venue making sure everything was perfect but they did it with a genuine smile and a sense of calmness! Not quite sure how they do it but I am so grateful.
I can go on and on and on about Carissa and Tim, which is funny because I don't usually write reviews. However, I would love nothing more to have other brides experience what I did on my wedding day.
If you are thinking about a wedding planner or a party planner for any event, please, please, please look no further!! You have just read about the BEST!! Love you Carissa & Tim!

We worked with Carissa at The Party Designers for our wedding invitations. She was extremely flexible and worked around our busy schedules to make sure we kept moving forward with selecting, designing and completing our invitations. Carissa had a great selection of invitations to choose from and we are very happy with the end result. I would recommend working with The Party Designers for invitations to my friends and family. Using their services was such a big help as this has been an extremely busy year.

Carissa did an amazing job helping us with our wedding invitations. She was so attentive and patient and helped us find an invitation that best suited our nautical/classy theme. When the invitations came in the mail she went through and made sure the order was correct and then tied pretty bows around everything! I would highly recommend Carissa!

Carissa and her assistant were extremely professional and helpful! Carissa responded to me very timely each time I would e-mail her.
