Thinking Outside the Box

17th July

Dear Tamara,

We wanted to thank you for taking the time to help us plan Hayden’s Bar Mitzvah. Both Steve and I valued your expertise, your patience, and your original ideas. You were an excellent listener and understood our vision for our Simcha. You also encouraged us and helped us to think “outside of the box”. You respected our budget and connected us to vendors who also respected our budget and who were a pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend your  Jewish party planning services as you are a true professional.  Thank you so much for helping make Hayden’s day so special and memorable!

Steven and Glenda

Q.  What time does the planner come and what time do you leave?

A.  I usually start my day a half an hour before the photos begin so that I can help prepare the bride for her pictures. I am also there to distribute the flowers to the bridesmaids and pin on all of the boutonnieres on the groomsmen. I usually help the bride get into her wedding gown as … Read More »
