Best planners in Charleston
We hired Caroline Bean at Engaging Events after having changed our original wedding planner due because we had to postpone our original wedding date because of Covid. I have experience working with another Charleston-based planner and in the process, I’ve interviewed close to a dozen planners in the area. Engaging Events (EE), in my opinion, are THE best. I highly recommend working with Caroline. She is so organized and thinks of absolutely everything. My original planner basically sent us a PDF with recommended vendors and told me to chose some. She also always first suggested the most expensive vendors (bands, etc). Caroline with EE never did that. She worked with me to choose vendors and made helpful suggestions based on price and style. EE does their own flowers in house, which is actually amazing. They give you a great rate on florals and you don’t have to worry about interviewing and finding a florist you like. My original florist for the 2020 wedding quoted us over double what we ended up paying for our 2021 wedding with EE. And the flowers were so perfect. I wouldn’t have changed a thing!
EE worked with us to design a beautiful theme for the wedding and table design. It came out even better than I had imagined. They thought of every detail.
On the day-of, they were so helpful and made sure that everything went accordingly to plan. I didn’t have to worry because I knew they were on top of everything.
Honestly, having worked with a more expensive and less competent planner in the past, I’m actually grateful that our wedding was postponed due to Covid. Thanks to our postponement, we ended up working with Engaging Events, and our wedding turned out to be better than I could have imagined AND we saved money in the process. They are really outstanding – go with Caroline at Engaging Events!!
