Best decision I made for our wedding was hiring DESIGN STUDIO SOUTH!!!

I cannot tell you how HAPPY I was and still am
With their wedding planning service for the wedding. Both Alysse and Danielle are so sweet. Danielle and I worked a lot together regarding the design and wedding details. Design studio south made our dream wedding reality and they did so making it look EASY! The Day of our wedding went smoother than I ever imagined thanks to their team and vendor suggestions. Danielle and I in particular worked closely during the planning and I just love her dearly and what she does is amazing! I initially didn’t want to pay for a wedding planner because I thought I could do it all and didn’t want to spend the extra $$ but, looking back, smartest investment I made for the wedding because it took all the stress out of our day, it came together better than our dreams and we were able to enjoy every second of the day without ANY issues. At least not to our knowledge! So, if your on the line of getting a wedding planner or not for your wedding- Trust me, Do it!! You’ll thank yourself on your wedding day! But do it with the best, Design Studio South!!

The only choice to execute your wedding vision perfectly!

I used Danielle/Design Studio South to manage all of the design details of my wedding (lighting, paper goods, linens, dance floor pattern, layout, etc.) while working with another wedding planner for all of the logistical details. Danielle understood my vision perfectly and executed it flawlessly. Her creativity and thoughtfulness allowed for the aesthetic to perfectly match my dream. Planning a wedding in Savannah while living in NYC could have been stressful, but she made it seamless, particularly with all of her connections with other vendors. She was so easy to work with, allowing me to be as involved or uninvolved in decisions as I wanted. She truly made magic happen inside my wedding tent!

Amazing Team!

Beautiful from start to finish. Danielle and her team created wedding magic for us on our daughter’s wedding day. We could not have asked for more dedication from an extraordinarily detail oriented staff of professionals. Danielle is a gifted wedding planner, and her love and enjoyment of her work shines through in the end result. We had a magical weekend of events designed and executed superbly. We are beyond grateful!
