Gabriella and Valère

We have learnt of the agency Save your Date by recommendation. My husband and I live in Switzerland and organized a wedding in Biarritz. The agency was of enormous help during the preparations and the wedding weekend itself. Cécile (and Garance) supported us majorly in dealing with the different providers (DJ, Gospel, transport, florist, make up and hair dresser) and with regards to the design concept of the wedding (flowers, decoration material, gifts etc.). We have known Cécile as being a creative, experienced and thoroughful wedding planner with whom you enjoy working.

Stanislas and Célia

We live in Paris so deciding to get married in the south of France (on an estate in the wilds of the Cévennes mountains) was a bit overwhelming. The team at Save Your Date made our dream wedding come true by helping us throughout the preparations so we could truly relax and enjoy our special day. A big thank-you to Cécile, Garance and the others who were nothing but efficient and cheerful when organising our wedding. We got to really enjoy this magical moment because we had absolute faith in Cécile and her team during the planning stage.

Soline and Erwann

A big THANK-YOU to the whole Save Your Date agency for planning our wedding. Having them there on our special day and the work they did over the six months leading up to it was incredibly helpful and the wedding would not have been the success it was without them. We left absolutely everything to Cécile and Garance in terms of managing every stage of organising our event and we were blown away by their professional attitude. They listened to everything we had to say, gave advice, reminded us (nicely!) when deadlines were approaching, always with a big smile and never causing us any stress. The agency was by our sides on our wedding day and the two days preceding it (our wedding was over three days) which was a huge relief as they always made us feel so relaxed. We can’t recommend Save Your Date enough! They deserve every success.

Marie-Christine, Hélène’s mother

The services provided by Save Your Date for Hélène and Bruno’s wedding were perfect.
I imagine every parent worries about their child’s wedding the day before such an important occasion. I was especially anxious, which is just in my nature, and your assistance was invaluable.
The way you approached matters, your reliability and professionalism, how you were able to come up with solutions to every actual or potential problem, put my mind at ease, as did your sense of calm and friendly demeanour.
In terms of planning the event, I particularly appreciated your availability, readiness to help and scrupulous respect for the deadlines we had set.
Your choice and organisation of the different service-providers and their contributions was faultless and the trusting relations you have established with them says a lot about you all.
Your advice and taste regarding the decorations ensured our home was an especially warm and welcoming venue for our guests. I would like to stress how much more challenging organising a wedding in your own home is compared to a traditional venue.
As for the day after, your being there and your efficiency (always with a smile) ensured everything went smoothly even after such a long night (it went on until 7 in the morning), which meant that we were perfectly able to host brunch with our closest family without a care in the world.
On Monday evening, I could hardly believe that a hundred people had partied the weekend away in my home as everything was clean and back in its right place… quite an impressive feat!
I received nothing but compliments about the event which I wanted to share with you. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you and Cécile in particular from the bottom of my heart.
You’ve made me want to bring my family and friends together more often in my home, it’s so simple with you! I have no doubt that I’ll be calling on you for planning more special occasions in the future.

Your presence there before and during the event was an enormous comfort for us. For us, the wedding was a total success and exactly what we wanted.

Right from the start Cécile listened to us. She was able to pinpoint what we wanted and needed, she just got us. From the stationery to the decorations to the wedding, it was all perfect. I can’t recommend Save Your Date enough for being so professional, attentive, human and kind.

Antoine and I wanted to have our wedding in France, close to Antoine’s family. Unfortunately, we lived in Boston, so it was very difficult for us to organize a wedding abroad…not to mention I don’t speak French! Cecile, Garance, Marie, and everyone at SaveYourDate made wedding planning so easy and SO MUCH FUN! They listened closely to our vision and our limitations. They gave us excellent advice (we knew very little about how to plan a wedding). Despite the distance, via Skype and shared Google drive, as well as Pinterest inspiration boards, the whole team at SaveYourDate made our special day a reality. We are still in awe at how magical everything was! And to think that we arrived in France only a few days before the big day!!! We are BEYOND grateful to Cecile&Garance&Marie for being so thorough and professional. Every penny was worth it. We HIGHLY recommend their wedding planning services to everyone and their friends!

Thank you (Cécile and Garance) for always being so quick off the mark. You were both so wonderfully helpful through the whole planning process. Your advice was always excellent and the documents you sent always so easy to understand. Plus the decorations were so tasteful! A big thank-you to you both!

berenice_et_sebastien-180x180
Bérénice and Sébastien

How can anyone get married without Cécile and her team!! We were living abroad during the planning stage but despite this rather major complication Cécile (and her staff) were there to support us and deliver the perfect wedding. Plus, they managed to cater to our every need, even the more unusual ones!

All the ideas, trends and preferences were ours; Cécile ‘simply’ made them happen and orchestrated it all with such flair.

We were able to enjoy every moment of our big day, because Save Your Date was there with us and, quite frankly, a wedding couple who isn’t stressed and families and witnesses who aren’t obliged to take care of everything makes a huge difference.

Professional, attentive, hard-working and unbelievably reliable, discreet although you always felt that everything was taken care of… Basically it was a pleasure to plan my wedding with Cécile and the big day was a resounding success.

Thank you, thank you and thank you again. And for any future brides and grooms, don’t hang about, Cécile and her team will make your wedding an unforgettable occasion that is sure to reflect you as a couple (otherwise you’ll have to take a sabbatical and start practicing yoga).

Oh and I almost forgot… ALL our guests LOVED IT… I won’t write all the comments here, but obviously this was in a small way down to us but in a big way thanks to Save Your Date…

Fabienne and Nicolas

Cécile, thank you for your kindness and sensitivity through the entire wedding planning process. Your support in designing the civil ceremony we wanted was perfect. And you were calm and lovely to deal with throughout. The ceremony was a complete success both in terms of decoration and the event itself. All our guests were blown away and complimented us. We’re so glad we found you.

Christine and Jérôme

When we saw their past weddings that combined traditional elegance with fun, modern twists we knew we wanted them to plan our wedding… and we weren’t disappointed!

They created style and sophistication in a simple, rustic setting. We received nothing but compliments from all our guests who had very different “expectations” about what a wedding should be like.

It was great having them on hand during the wedding weekend so we could enjoy every moment of our event without a care in the world.

Basically, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Cécile and her team.

Laurence and Tanguy

‘Wedding showers, a marriage flowers’ as the old saying goes, but it’s not really about the weather or waiting for something to blossom. It’s all a matter of chemistry to guarantee that special day – a day that always feels too short for the wedding couple and above all the guests if the celebration is a success. And to make it so, the key ingredient is a happy, relaxed couple ready to celebrate this eagerly-awaited moment in their own way. There are two types of people: those who want to do everything themselves and end up exhausted and those who trust others to guide them, come up with new ideas and handle the entire event, especially since these moments can throw up so many surprises.

As the second type of person, we chose to work with Cécile (and her team), attentive but always unobtrusive. They were always on hand to help us make decisions, avoid style faux pas and manage every service provider, with their various personalities, even in the stressful moments.

Cécile was always available, a great listener and professional throughout all the preparations, we trusted her with everything.

The budget was just right for us to be able to focus on ourselves, our five children and our friends. We have such wonderful memories of this wonderful celebration which we owe in part to Cécile. We are renewing our vows next year and, of course, Cécile will be there to organise it all!

I wouldn’t think twice to recommend her!

Caroline and Vincent

The Save Your Date agency met our expectations. We didn’t want just a wedding package but wanted Cécile to be a part of our wedding, which she did perfectly. The cherry on the cake: even for details that weren’t in her remit, she still gave us advice and was there to answer all our questions and played a crucial role over all three days! Reliable, friendly, creative and professional are just a few words to describe the agency. More than just being a support, call Save Your Date to guarantee your wedding goes without a hitch!

Claire and Maxime

A big thank you to Cecile for her support and precious help before, during and after the wedding. Thanks to her, we had the wedding we had imagined.

We describe with only few words what we want and Cecile directly understood, which was very pleasant, she remained with us throughout this year of preparations.

Everything was perfect, during the organization with a fluid and friendly relationship, during the wedding, Cécile was a discreet and considerate little fairy, then after the wedding, where her little hands allowed us to rest while they worked again and again.

As many guests have told us “it was a perfect wedding, down to the smallest details, and so much to your image”.

Congratulations Cécile and thank you for allowing us to spend a beautiful day in our little bubble, in peace and tenderness.

Laura and Julian 

Planning a wedding from distance is a great challenge. We are thankful we had Cecile and Garance helping us with the organization and the selection and coordination with all suppliers. Their attention to details was outstanding. They really listen to what you want and they work very hard to deliver on their promise. 

Cecile is very professional, always available to discuss the wedding coordination and logistics. She is hands on. We could not be happier we have chosen her as our wedding planner. Thank you so much for everything. It was an amazing wedding, our families and friends loved it; we loved it.  

SARAETFABIENBYCKOTD-86
Sara and Fabien

The preparation of our wedding was not easy because we only had a period of three months to prepare everything.
We decided to use a planner to help us prepare our wedding and after a few meetings we chose Cecile as a matter of course.
What we liked above all was his professionalism and his organization but also his person because for this small delay (yes yes, we had only three months to prepare our wedding!) We wanted to surround ourselves only with people motivated, good waves and beautiful encounters.
Our wedding was exceptional, the theme was bohemian. It was even better than in our thoughts.
Thank you Cecile and his team for his ideas, his little details that we had not thought but that had all their importance and especially to have found us in live band so everyone is still talking about months after our wedding!

Marina and Abtine

Garance, Cécile and Mélanie were our wedding guardian angels! Because they are professional, attentive and know the best service-providers to recommend, we had the ceremony/reception we dreamed of.
We didn’t have a moment’s stress during the eight months of planning and we got to enjoy every second of our big day. We mainly dealt with Garance who always seemed to know exactly what we wanted, fitted in with our schedules and stayed within our budget. Future brides and grooms can have total confidence in Save Your Date for organising such an important life event. Thanks again for everything and long live Save Your Date!

Sylvia and Jan

Dear Garance and Cécile, We wanted to thank you wholeheartedly for your help in organizing our weekend celebration for 10 years of marriage and the blessing for the kids in mid-June at Chateau de la Verrerie. As we live far away it was incredibly helpful to have you organizing everything and we managed to plan a major event with only two visits to the region. I was very impressed with your responsiveness and good attitude to all of our requests, as well as the confidence you gave us that all was well organized and you could deal with anything that came up. The providers you sourced from music, to hairdressers, to flowers were spot on, and the design and decorations were exactly what we wanted. Our guests who interacted with you in English also gave us very positive remarks about how helpful you were. Above all we really enjoyed working with you. Thank you so much for making our weekend an amazing one. All the best, Silvia & Jan

Polina and Georges

From the first time I spoke with Cécile (over a long-distance Skype call!) I just knew she was the one I wanted to plan my wedding. She is extremely nice, reliable and always listens to you. We are so happy we chose Save Your Date to help us plan our big day. All through the event, Cécile and Marie were with us, somehow managing to be everywhere but incredibly discreet at the same time! We were able to really make the most of our special day and that’s all thanks to you! We can’t thank you enough!

We appealed to Cecile and her team for our wedding and we are delighted. The feeling went well from the first appointment. From then on, we knew that she understood our project and we were sure that we would be well accompanied. An accompaniment and an exceptional proof of empathy which allowed us to sublimate our big day.

Thank you to you for your professionalism and patience that made our wedding unique. That positive feedback from our loved ones and especially from ourselves. If you want a wedding in your image and without stress, do not hesitate, call the agency Save Your Date.

A privilege to be able to enjoy your loved ones knowing that everything is under control.

Thanks for everything: your professional attitude, your kind and gentle manner, your continual optimism, your discreet service, your efficiency and your unwavering smile, such a joy.

You were born to do this job!

The wedding was a wonderful success and we, Berenice’s parents, couldn’t have asked for more.

Many thanks and all the best.

Thank you again for your help all through this year. SYD was a huge factor in ensuring our big day was a success. An excellent team, professional to a fault. You truly listened to us and always came back with brilliant ideas, which makes your service really stand out. During the final stages, your capacity to get things done and respond to last-minute changes was invaluable. All the feedback from guests was positive. A big thank you.

We heartily recommend the services provided by the Save Your Date agency, especially for coordinating and planning everything for us remotely, given that we live more than 10,000 kilometers from the wedding venue. Impeccable planning by Cécile and her team who really listened to us and transformed our wishes into a wonderful, stress-free day. Well done on your professional attitude and flawless service. Thank you for playing a part in our happy day.

A very professional agency that listens carefully to the future bride and groom from the very first contact. We really fell in love with this service-provider. Cécile and her staff enabled us to have the exact decorations we wanted for our dream wedding, fully respecting the handmade decorations and our expectations. The agency really takes in hand the planning of the wedding and the big day itself from start to finish. And for all that, we say a great big thank-you.

Cécile, we can’t tell you how much we appreciated your incredible work organizing our wedding. The final stretch was quite intense, but you managed to juggle the various suppliers and make the right calls, especially regarding the decoration, to ensure everything was ready. Thanks to you everything was perfect! We wish all the best for your agency and that you get to share many more wonderful moments, big and small, with your “newlyweds”. You can rely 100% on Save Your Date for your special day!

Our experience with Save Your Date was a resounding success. Cécile listened to what we liked and wanted to create a wedding that matched who we are as a couple. We wanted a romantic wedding, rustic but not tacky, and she perfectly translated all this into the decoration. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this agency.
