Karen - Owner of Fab Affairs is the PERFECT name for her company because SHE IS FABULOUS!!!! I have never met Karen prior to meeting her at my home for my daughters upcoming wedding. From the moment I met Karen she was a Beautiful Bright Light, Warm, Friendly and Caring Woman. She was polite, on time, fun, organized, professional, knowledgeable and great to be around. Very conscientious about her work, very responsive and made sure everything was spectacular. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND KAREN FOR ANY EVENT!!! WE CONSIDER HER A PART OF OUR NEW EXTENDED FAMILY.

Karen was so helpful and had so many ideas for a beautiful occasion. She had so much energy and enthusiasm. It was such a relief to be able to say 'what do you suggest' and be provided with a great idea or to say 'you may take care of it' and have the reassurance that it would get done, whatever it was.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Karen and Fab Affairs! I had originally debating on having a day of wedding planner, but I'm so glad that I did. I do not know what I would have done if she wasn't there helping out. She handled everything amazingly. She has a fun and great personality that made my husband and I feel at ease. If there was anything I didn't think of or may have forgotten, she was right there with recommendations. I would highly recommend her to any family or friends who are to be married in the future.

I was the videographer for a June 7th wedding that was coordinated by Karen and Fab Affairs and Karen was amazing. As a vendor at a large event like a wedding the event planner can make or break your day when it comes to what you need to do your job successful.Karen did an outstanding job in keeping all the events of the day on time and making the day special for the bride and groom, their families, guest , the venues and vendors. That is a lot of things to keep in order and Karen made it look effortlessly easy. She is a real professional, does a great job and is one of the nicest people to work with as well. She certainly help to make my day easier and I look forward to working with her many times in the future. Hugh S - Videographer

Karen was outstanding as our rock during our wedding and all the time leading up to the wedding. Despite only paying for her services for the day of the wedding, she met with us and by myself beforehand, and was constantly in contact, ensuring that we did not forget anything, and providing advice when requested. She had wonderful ideas, most of all, the shoe game that my guests loved, as well as convincing us to have our ceremony at a different location than where we intended at our venue. It turned out to have better photos and was so beautiful with the sunny weather and trees behind us. Our family and friends fell in love with Karen whose fun personality made the whole wedding planning process enjoyable and not crazy like I expected. She is worth every penny and I recommend snatching her as soon as you can for your wedding! Thank you Karen for making our wedding day smooth and absolutely beautiful for us!

Karen was fun to get to know and helped us in so many ways. She was also extremely professional and knew her stuff, giving suggestions for things I either hadn't considered or given much thought to. At the same time I was extremely encouraged by her flexible approach from the start. Most planners I contacted had rigid service packages containing what they felt you needed, and didn't really ask or seem interested in listening to what we felt we needed. Karen asked that question, listened to what we had in mind and then crafted a customized package of services we were looking for (+ what she felt was critical) in a planner. She was great about making suggestions, but never pushy and made us feel like partners in the planning process. She helped us keep the process on track and not miss anything important. It was a great relief to have Karen backing us up and adding positive energy to a planning process characterized by many as stressful. She helped us add so many little touches. She brought in table card holders and a beautiful birdcage for gift envelopes. She even brought an assistant with her at no extra charge to help the day of the wedding. In the words of my former groom / now husband, a man typically of few words when it comes to things like reviews, he summarized her services perfectly: She was excellent, with a great personality and cheerful the whole time. We would definitely recommend her to other friends (or strangers) who are getting married.

I would highly recommend Karen and Fab Affairs. Our wedding rehearsal and wedding were beautiful memories because Karen was on top of every detail. She is incredibly organized, professional, timely and thinks of everything....even things we didn't think of! She ensured everything ran smoothly and never missed a beat. She works extremely well with vendors, and takes the stress off the bride and groom. If I had to use one word to describe her, it would be Phenomenal!

I originally found out about Karen and Fab Affairs from one of our college friends about a year ago. My friend was getting in married in NC, however, her wedding coordinator lived in the NOVA area so we figured why not give her a try. Karen showed up to our home with her pixie hair and big smile and I knew we would pick her, but we wanted to see her pricing and hear a little more about her experience. She made my fiancé and I feel quite at ease and even offered us multiple options for our big day based off of our budget. We originally wanted a “day-of” coordinator, but ended up writing a contract with Karen for 6 months of planning plus the day of. It was a great decision. Karen was always readily available and even answered questions for us prior to our 6 month planning contract. Once our contracted time kicked in, Karen was always working with me to keep me on track, provide vendor help, and we often met to go over any details or questions that my fiancé and I had. Karen really paid off though in the last few weeks and the big day. She helped negotiate times with my vendors, helped me coordinate our bridal processional, and even helped get me out of a situation with a vendor I had decided not to use. On our big day, we had a few issues with our shuttle service and Karen was on top of it and it definitely helped keep me from full-blown panic mode. She also helped keep us on track for all the typical wedding tasks like cake tasting and the bouquet toss. Now that our wedding has come and gone, I will miss Karen as she has become more of a friend than a vendor for us. I would definitely recommend her for any of my friends’ weddings in the future.

Also I want to note that while Karen usually works for the Nova area, she is based out near Front Royal so I highly recommend her for anyone in the Linden, Winchester, Martinsburg area as well :)

Karen, you did a fantastic job with the wedding. You and my daughter worked very well together with planning everything. I stayed completely out of the planning and I was completely surprised with the theme and every aspect of the wedding.

This was the most spectacular and fun wedding I have attended. Five stars on everything. I know you went above and beyond expectation to make every detail right. I will be recommending you to friends.

Thank you,

Karen Nottingham, Fab Affairs, LLC, put together the perfect wedding for my daughter and new son-in-law. She worked with my daughter's budget, stayed on budget, and was always there to coordinate the venders (tent, food, flowers, the whole nine yards) throughout the entire planning and event process. I don't think that I've ever given anyone "5" ratings across the board, but Karen really deserves it.
I was hesitant at first on spending the money on a wedding planner, but it was an expense that was worth its weight in gold. I would have been nagging the entire wedding party for weeks, battling with my daughter (even though I wouldn't have meant to). With Karen on the job, I could relish the day and just enjoy my daughter, her husband, and family and friends.
