Kristen & Dennis

Just wanted to thank you again for all your help making my dream wedding come true, despite all the crazy changes! You have been so wonderful and understanding – I truly appreciate all that you do! Thank you again. Kristen

Ashley & Houston

Thank you so much for helping me make our wedding so beautiful and perfect. The vendors you suggested were incredible and I am so glad I didn’t have to spend a fortune for great services. Thank you for walking me through this process and organizing everything the day of. It definitely helped me enjoy my wedding day even more!  Ashley

Katelyn & Mac

I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful and helpful Kate and Sabine were during the planning process! We live in Richmond, VA and weren’t able to get to Charleston on a regular basis to plan the wedding. They were there every step of the way helping us make decisions and check stuff off our list. Even if it was late on a Friday night or early on a Sunday morning, Sabine would be emailing us questions/info about our wedding. Not only did they work hard on our wedding leading up to it, but on the day of they were amazing as well! Sabine kept things rolling and made sure that we stuck to our schedule as best we could. Our wedding wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for all they did. We HIGHLY recommend Fabulous Fete to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner in Charleston, SC!! Thank y’all so much!

Jillian & Cameron

Kate and Sabine were absolutely FABULOUS!!! Definitely the BEST decision I ever made during the wedding planning process! To be honest, I was a little anxious at first hiring a planner to stay within my budget…. but honestly– trust in the professionals….they actually help you stay on budget and they really know what they are doing better than you haha! I hired them as my full wedding planner and they literally helped me every step of the way (including quick response to my thousands of emails for many many months!!). The week of the wedding when I would have received 1 million emails from so many vendors– Sabine took care of everything and just let me know when it was done. When it came to my wedding day… I had a ton of DIY crafts that I could not have put up without their amazing help. The wedding day went by quick- and without their help in making sure everything stayed in check and on schedule– I would have never been able to enjoy our big day! If you are looking for a company that is friendly, easy-going, always helping you stay on budget, prompt with emails, and will literally make your wedding day COMPLETELY stress free and absolutely gorgeous– HIRE Kate and Sabine! We love you ladies! Jillian and Cameron

Kendra & Addison

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Kate and Sabine. My only regret is that I opted for the day of planning instead of the full time package! However, although I had the day of service there was not a single time over the past year and a half that they have not gone above and beyond to help me plan from out of town. In Charleston, where there are an overwhelming number of wedding related businesses, I felt so lucky to have found planners who were incredibly professional and personal at once. From our first meeting I felt comfortable and confident that our wedding would be everything we had hoped for, and it was. Kate and Sabine are friendly, understanding, and most importantly for me, have great senses of humor! If you are looking for wedding planners to help you plan and execute a beautiful southern affair – who pay attention to detail and place importance on the things you feel are important, I would strongly encourage you to reach out to Kate and Sabine.

Kaitlyn & Chris

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to the ladies at Fabulous Fete for giving us our absolute DREAM wedding!!! There is no way anyone else could have pulled off the amazing job that they did. Kate worked tirelessly to give us everything we wanted while staying UNDER my budget! Not only did these ladies work nonstop in the planning of my wedding but everything on the day of was absolutely perfect. I never had to worry once about the set up or flow of the day. I am eternally grateful for everything that Fabulous Fete has done for my husband and I and will sing their praises to the rest of Charleston. We cannot thank you enough Kate and Sabine!!!

Lindsey & John

I would highly recommend Kate and Sabine! They went out of their way to make sure everything on my wedding day was perfect. They answered 2,000 of my emails within 24 hours and helped me every step of the way. Worth every penny!

Allyse & Ritchie

Kate & Sabine did an excellent job! Was such a smooth, easy process and our wedding day went perfectly! Thanks ladies!

Cailin & Gregor

Sabine and Kate are simply the best! I hired them as my “day of” planners but they were so much more than that. Anytime I had a question, needed a recommendation, or was having a mini-meltdown (like when the first 12 photographers I contacted were booked for my date), they were just a phone call or email away. During the planning process, they helped me find great vendors within my budget and made sure we didn’t miss a single detail. Kate and Sabine did all of my reception set up while I was getting ready, taking pictures and having a stress-free day leading up to my wedding. When I arrived at the reception, I was in awe. It looked even better than I could have imagined – they made my vision come to life! Until my own wedding, I never realized the importance of a reception timeline. They were able to keep everything (and everyone) on track – cake cutting, speeches, dances, etc. They did it so effectively and seamlessly, it was like magic. The “flow” of my reception was perfect, thanks to Sabine and Kate. My day was amazing, and I couldn’t have done it without Fabulous Fete!

Kasey & Greg

SOOO very happy that I chose to hire these ladies. Kate and Sabine were awesome to work with! I had a lot of DIY items, and it was absolutely a must have to have help setting everything up. These two did all of the work and it turned out beautifully. I absolutely don’t know what I would have done without Sabine at my rehearsal! She kept everything organized, on track, and kept me stress free on my wedding day! (except for the rain- but we couldn’t control that!). I planned my wedding myself, but hired Fabulous Fete as my day of coordinator. Best money I spent. And they are super affordable. CHOOSE FABULOUS FETE!!

Jenna & Jeremy

Kate and Sabine did an amazing job! Thanks to them literally nothing went wrong at the wedding. It was unbelievable. They were extremely organized and had great recommendations throughout the entire process. They were able to put me in touch with excellent vendors and made the whole wedding planning process so easy. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone! Thanks for all you did to make our day so, so special!

Colleen & David

A Fabulous Fete with Kate and Sabine! More than a day of planner Kate and Sabine answered my questions, reviewed contracts and gave advice. The day went off perfectly! Absolutely are recommendation for these ladies!

Amy & Steven

These two ladies made my special day BEYOND memorable!! If there were issues, I had no idea because they handled everything so wonderfully and ran the entire process so smoothly I have not one unpleasant memory from our wedding. These women know what they are doing, allowing the bride to relax and know everything is under control. Thank you a million times over!!!!

Chelsea & Bob

I chose Kate and Sabine because they were well-rated, personable, and within my budget. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, I felt they were enjoyable to work with. They always responded to my questions and concerns right away. They were patient with my indecisiveness and at times apathy towards certain wedding planning aspects (way too many details). I felt they provided excellent vendor recommendations at various price levels. They do not cater specifically to brides who are having ridiculously extravagant weddings. Their ability to work with everyone, is their best trait. They communicated seamlessly with both my mom and me which is not an easy task. Anyways, I was elated with my wedding day and how the planning process unfolded; this, in a large part, is a result of Kate and Sabine.

Stephanie & Nick

Kate and Sabine were amazing and so helpful for our out of town wedding! They took the stress out of the day of by putting their skills to work! Hiring them was the best choice I made throughout the wedding process!

Carolee & Karl

I was a bit helpless trying to get wedding planning moving until I met Kate and Sabine. I was from GA trying to plan a small wedding in Charleston. I booked them for the day of plus a few hours of planning. They were fantastic!! They steered me to great local affordable vendors. Everyone was remarking what a great time they had at our wedding. They found us a string duo that did classic for the pre wedding, and classic rock for the cocktail hour. They answered my numerous crazy question emails swiftly. I’m thankful I had them for the rehearsal to go over everything for the ceremony, and where I envisioned all my vintage rentals to be placed. Day of everything ran smoothly because of them. They kept us on schedule, and more importantly kept the stress away from me, the bride.

Aimee & Ryan

If I could, I would give Kate and Sabine more than a 10/10!! After bad experiences from being in weddings where the brides had hired wedding planners, I was completely against it. My then fiancé convinced me to look into it just to help me out with our wedding since I was planning from 12 hours away. Kate and Sabine helped me find vendors that were perfect for our wedding and then they put it all together for the most wonderful wedding day! Both my father and father-in-law are still talking about how great of a job Kate and Sabine did with the wedding. They were not pushy or overwhelming, I told them that I didn’t want to be super strict on our timeline and they let the day just flow. There aren’t words to describe how much I appreciate everything Kate and Sabine did for Ryan and I on our wedding day. I promise you will not regret hiring Kate and Sabine for your wedding!!

Missy & Marcos

Kate and Sabine, I just wanted to let you know how much I thank you, and how awesome you two are. I honestly don’t think I could have chosen better wedding planners. I will be sure to recommend you to everyone on the planet. You guys were so easy to work with, very down to earth, budget conscious, spectacular taste and recommendations, and pretty fabulous gals. We had a perfect night. I have not one negative comment about the entire day. I only wish it would have lasted forever. Marcos and I and our guests had SO. MUCH. FUN. Many of my friends insisted it was by far the best wedding they’ve ever been to. I couldn’t disagree. I will be sure to let anyone i know getting married in Charleston that the HAVE to hire you. Thank you again so so much. Missy and Marcos ❤️

Ashley & Ruben

To all brides out there: Hire Fabulous Fete! Kate Perry was absolutely invaluable to me at my wedding. It was a small, very simple affair but I could not have done it without her help! Kate helped me plan everything, even though I was out of town for all of the planning. She had contacts for EVERYTHING and they were fantastic! From the cake to the photographer, my husband and I could not have been happier! Our wedding day was amazing and all of the credit goes to Kate and Fabulous Fete!

Lindsey & Kenan

My husband and I found Kate and Sabine online and knew we had to contact them from just the name of their company! A “Fabulous Fete” is exactly what we wanted to throw, and with the help of these lovely ladies, we did just that! From our first meeting with them, we could feel that we would be in good hands working with them. They were able to help guide us through every step of the planning process from establishing a realistic budget to choosing the right vendors for everything we needed. Being a destination bride and groom from Los Angeles we needed all the help we could get. Even with a 3 hour time difference between us, Kate and Sabine were on point with everything we needed. Kate and Sabine were quick to respond to our questions and concerns and always gave the best advice. With their knowledge of the most fabulous vendors in Charleston and their, “we got this” vibe, we knew we could entrust them to plan and execute our big day. The coordination of the event was flawless. Everything looked amazing as soon as we arrived and we didn’t have to stress about one thing the entire night. We were able to enjoy our time family and friends while Kate & Sabine took care of the rest. Their charm and wit alone would put any bride’s anxiety at ease but their planning skills and organization? Top notch! As a very picky bride, I knew I had nothing to stress about with Kate and Sabine. They took what could easily have been a stressful time in our lives and made it truly enjoyable. Certainly a day we will never forget. If you’re getting married in or around the Charleston area, do yourself a favor and let Fabulous Fete plan your day! You will not be disappointed. Thank you Kate and Sabine!!!!

Michelle & Bobby

I hired Fabulous Fete as my day of wedding coordinator, and it was one of the best decisions I could have made! Not being from Charleston, I had no idea where to begin with choosing vendors that fit within my budget. Anytime I emailed Kate to ask her advice on anything (which was A LOT), from recommendations for vendors, accommodations for guests, locations for rehearsal dinner and decor for the reception, she was super quick to get back to me, and offered great advice and suggestions! I was able to stay well within my budget, and I was extremely impressed and happy with all of the vendors! The day of the wedding I didn’t have to worry about a thing because I was confident that Kate and Sabine had everything under control. I couldn’t have imagined the day going any better, and I can honestly say that Kate and Sabine were a large part of that. I highly highly recommend Fabulous Fete for any of your wedding planning needs…I promise you, you won’t regret it!

Tabitha & Neal

Just a few weeks before my wedding I needed to find someone to coordinate my ceremony. Fabulous Fete was recommended to me so I contacted them and they were able to talk to me and get me set up with them almost immediately. They always responded to my e-mails promptly and answered all my crazy, last minute bride questions! Kate and Sabine were great during rehearsal, rehearsing the ceremony both indoors and outdoors because our weather forecast was not looking promising. The day of the wedding they arrived in great spirits and reassured me that everything would be smoothly when it began to look like it was going to rain. Our ceremony was pushed up 20 minutes due to dark clouds that began rolling in and they got everyone lined up and ready to go very quickly. Our ceremony went extremely smooth and could not have turned out any better. Thank you so much Kate and Sabine for helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives!

Jessica & Stephen

Slurping soup at Panera and talking weddings for the first time with Kate & Sabine felt like any other day, except 100x more fantastic, as reality was setting in of my future life and the party they would help facilitate to celebrate such a momentous occasion. They were on-point, great listeners, and were always at the ready with ideas and tips for a successful fete; they did a superb job of making me feel like I was their favorite person on the planet! Hiring the Fabulous Fete duo allowed my husband and me to be the guests of honor at the coolest party we could dream up!

Erin & Ryan

Even though we were on a budget, we wanted to hire a Day of Coordinator for our wedding. Because I plan events as part of my job, I know how much effort and detail go into everything – and I wanted to be able to sit back and enjoy my day! Kate and Sabine allowed me to do just that. We planned our wedding from out of town and even though we just hired them for day-of, Kate and Sabine went above and beyond prior to the wedding – giving us vendor recommendations, helping me with the timeline, and answering my endless questions. Leading up to the big day they confirmed all of our vendors so we didn’t have to worry about anything, allowing us to spend that time with our family and friends. Kate and Sabine took care of everything on the day of – from set up to clean up. While we had a florist for our centerpieces, most of our other decor was done my me and had to be set up at the venue – they did all the set up while I spent the day with my bridesmaids and relaxed. I loved the way everything came together – they did an amazing job! From the ceremony through the reception, they kept everyone on track and made sure we stuck to our timeline. They took care of any small snags flawlessly – I had forgotten a cake knife, they tracked one down and had it waiting on the table. We were one table short for the DJ equipment, they realized this and ordered an additional table and linen. We had an extra guest show up, they quickly got a place set for him for dinner. Kate and Sabine truly allowed us to enjoy our day and we would highly recommend their services to anyone planning a wedding in the Charleston area. They are organized, thoughtful, personable and reliable. Thank you for an amazing wedding day!

Shanua & Justin

Hiring Kate and Sabine was the best decision we made in regards to our wedding. I don’t know what we would have done without them. They made the entire planning process stress-free and most of all fun. They were incredibly organized, timely, and knowledgeable, always ready with several options within our budget when it came to choosing vendors. If there were ever roadblocks, day-of crises, or issues, they were handled quietly behind-the-scenes, without our knowledge, leaving us to enjoy every minute of our special day. Both Kate and Sabine are super down-to-earth and friendly. After working with them for an entire year, it was sad to see our wedding day end because we knew we wouldn’t get to interact with them as much! If you’re looking for planners who are professional, budget-minded, organized, and knowledgeable, look no further. Hiring Kate and Sabine is a no-brainer for any bride and groom!

Sara & Lou

Fabulous Fete did a great job planning and organizing our wedding on Kiawah Island, SC! Kate and Sabine always responded to my questions in a timely manner and understood the vision that my fiancé and I had for our wedding. We ordered the day-of wedding planning service but had unlimited email capability. This package fit our needs because it allowed us to use our own creativity and find our own vendors in order to make our wedding fit our personalities, but also helped us to sit back and relax on the actual day of our wedding. We truly appreciate their dedication to making our day so special! Thanks again!

Madeline & Ricky

Sabine is quite possibly one of the best wedding planners in Charleston! We hired her as a day of coordinator, and never had the chance to meet prior to the big day but she managed to flawlessly pull together the vision we had for our ceremony and reception. She is extremely organized and able to get things accomplished and get people where they need to be, she never missed a beat. We even received many compliments from guests on how great she did. We really were able to enjoy our special day and not have to worry about any of the details, and cannot thank Sabine enough.

Cheri & Grant

As soon as I got engaged, I immediately started my search for a day of coordinator. Being an interior designer, I knew I would have a lot of ideas and designs that would need to be executed on our special day. The problem was finding coordinators that I trusted, that were affordable, and could set up all of my decorations with ease. I did a few months of research and interviewed a few coordinators, but as soon as I met Kate and Sabine, I knew they would be my choice. I am so glad I did my research and chose them because they set up all of my décor exactly how I imagined and how I instructed, no questions asked. Naturally, there were plenty of questions I had for them along the way that were answered in a timely manner. They even gave me a few money saving suggestions! Honestly, they were the best priced with the best personalities in the Charleston area and I felt an immediate, trusted connection with them. They were friendly, yet professional. There’s no way I could have done everything on my wedding day, or wanted my family and friends to do everything that they did for us. Kate & Sabine: thank you for making our wedding AND reception fabulous and perfect. Thank you!

Samantha & Jon

When Jon and I got engaged, we knew from the beginning of our planning we wanted a wedding coordinator for the day of events. As luck would have it, Kate and Sabine were recommended by our venue, so I gave them an initial call to get information. After 2 or 3 other phone calls to event planners/coordinators, I knew that Kate and Sabine were perfect for us and our wedding. They were not only the best priced (let’s face it, planning a wedding is expensive!), but by far the most down to earth and real people I talked to. In a situation like planning a wedding where you just have to trust your vendors, it was nice to have “friends” only an email or phone call away. Even though we only hired them as day of coordinators, they helped with questions from hotel bookings, to invitation wording, to flowers, to making sure details I never even thought about were taken care of. When they say, “they are the first to arrive, and the last to leave”, they mean it. With Kate and Sabine, the only thing you will have to think about on your wedding day is having fun with your guests! Our wedding was perfect, and we can’t thank the two of them enough! In fact, numerous of our guests have said “it was the best wedding they have ever attended”.

Jenna & Ryan

I just want to thank y’all for all of your fabulous help and hard work for our wedding! It was better than we ever could have dreamt or imagined and a lot of that had to do with YOU! You gave us the chance to really enjoy every single moment and we will be forever grateful! Thank you for making our weekend and wedding day so incredibly perfect!

Barbie & Brian

AMAZING!!! These girls are the best of the best! I hired them for day of coordination but they did way more than I anticipated. They were organized, honest and took the reins in the most professional manner. They managed my vendors and crazy family members (every wedding has them). I never once knew of any problems or hiccups and I am sure there were plenty. I don’t think I could have trusted anyone else as completely as I did them. I gave them full creative freedom with the reception layout and design and I was BLOWN AWAY with how awesome they did. Totally went above and beyond my expectations. They have great ideas and are a wonderful team. I wish I could get married again just to work with them again!

Allison & Tom

Sabine saved our lives and our sanities by coordinating our day! We met a month or two before the wedding to go over all of our vendors and their contracts. She helped to find all of the unfinished details to ensure a seamless ceremony and reception. She really understood what we wanted to accomplish on our wedding and how we wanted the day to flow.

On the day of, she was a busy bee! She brought an assistant to help, and together they made sure all the set-up was finished and everybody was where they needed to be. She checked in with me all day long before the wedding to make sure I was doing okay, but she really did her best out in the ceremony and reception areas. Friends and family that were helping said she took charge and kept everybody on schedule. She helped keep all the wedding-day stress off my mom and let her enjoy the day too!

I can only imagine how much less stressful that last year of planning would have been if we’d gotten her to do that too! They offer as much or as little help in event coordination that you need. She’ll make sure your wedding is exactly what you want it to be.

Jordan & Luke

Kate & Sabine were such a pleasure to work with! They were organized, stylish, answered emails in a timely manner, and beautifully executed the vision I had for my wedding day. Originally I only wanted a day-of planner, but quickly realized I needed a bit more help. Kate & Sabine tailored their services to my needs so I got just what I was looking for, all while staying within my budget. They were fantastic on the wedding day! Everything was on time and went off without a hitch. I am so happy they were there through the planning process and will definitely recommend them to my friends! Thanks again!

Meredith & John

Words cannot express how thankful I am to have found Kate and Sabine to help me plan my Big Day. We no longer live in Charleston and I was anxious about planning a destination wedding. Kate and Sabine were always available whenever I needed them. They were prompt and responsive to my endless emails and questions. They understood my wedding day vision and worked to make sure I knew every option available and created a beautiful wedding. The day of, I never worried about anything and was able to enjoy that time with my bridesmaids and family. I never regretted my decision to involve Kate and Sabine in our dream wedding and will be forever grateful in their insight, professionalism, hard work, and creativity. Again, thank you so much!!

Ann Whitney & Scott

The Fabulous Fete duo is a dynamic one that made one incredible impression on us! Everything was planned to a ‘t’ – and all with very cool heads and a comforting way of helping this bride not to worry about a thing. From the beginning, they guided my way through all the details of every step very thoroughly and clearly. Not only are they very comprehensive on all the facets of your day, but also offer a soothing vibe to take down the anxiety of the big day to make it so very enjoyable. I very highly recommend Kate and Sabine for laying out your big event – they are dependable and very available to all your needs! And you will have two new friends for sure!

Megan & Jeff

All I have to say is Sabine and Kate rock. I had a very short engagement of 6 months. I am from Chicago and flew to meet with Sabine and Kate for 2 days where we found a venue and booked the date. Sabine and Kate made sure we stayed on task along with dotting our i’s and crossing our t’s. Their guidance let us to all of our fantastic vendors. On the big day there were some electrical issues but they dealt with it and I never even knew about it until the wedding was over. I would highly recommend Sabine and Kate to any bride. The day was absolutely perfect and we most definitely could not have pulled it off without them.

Toni & Mike

Kate and Sabine were absolutely essential in making our wedding day the best day of our lives! As soon as we met them we knew we were in good hands. They handled every single detail which allowed us to fully relax and enjoy our wedding with our family and friends. I am so thankful to have such wonderful and stress-free memories from our big day and that is 100% due to these ladies and the phenomenal job they did! I couldn’t imagine a better duo!

Colleen & Mike

We did an out of town wedding in Charleston, and we connected with Fabulous Fête 2 weeks before the wedding. In that short amount of time, their support truly made our weekend run smoothly and decreased stress for everyone. They offered ideas, responded to our ideas, and supported every small detail with ease. I cannot imagine what the stressful week before the wedding would have been like without them – it was so helpful for everyone (especially the bride). What I think stands out about Sabine and Kate was their ability to perceive the individual wedding circumstance and be personable. They were intuitive with what we needed and did EXACTLY what I wanted (when I didn’t even ask). They involved me when it was needed and didn’t make decisions without telling me, but they went ahead and did the many small things that just add up and take a lot of time with everything else going on. They had already established relationships with the different vendors in the Charleston community, and that was very helpful as well. The only thing that I would change is I wish I had connected with them sooner! Once we were connected, my checklist decreased immediately and I felt better every single day because I trusted them. I would more than highly recommend Fabulous Fête!




Thank you to our Fabulous couples for all the kind testimonials!
