Our Perfect Wedding
I can't say enough amazing things about Alysse, Danielle, and the whole DSS team. My husband and I live in Miami and run our own practice. When we decided to get married I knew we needed to find a wedding planner to help us manage everything from afar. I reached out to a few different planners in the Savannah area and when I called DSS I was able to speak to Alysse right away. Long story short we ended up having an insane amount of things in common (fiancé went to high school with her, her and I went to the same college but different years .... yes I know, crazy) BUT that is not why we ended up hiring her. From the moment we spoke, Alysse was very professional and organized. She emailed me right away with detailed information outlining exactly what they would offer. We ended up going with the full planning service and eventually added on the gift bag service as well.Sent on 10/29/2018
When Danielle and Alysse sent me the mood board I knew I had picked the right team. I couldn't believe how accurately they captured our style and what we wanted the day to look and feel like. Alysse and her team helped us pick all of our vendors, order invitations, programs, etc. They helped us do IT ALL. We only went to Savannah once during the entire year of planning to do cake tastings, catering tastings, and a design meeting. I am a SUPER type A person (thanks Alysse for putting up with my emails and spread sheets, you dah best), so I was nervous to find a planner I could trust, BUT Alysse met me right back with her organized spread sheets and color coding. I always joked with her telling her how in love I was with her organizing systems.
When it came down to the wedding weekend, I was the most calm I think I've ever been. I honestly think I was more nervous at friend's weddings than my own. I was able to just relax and enjoy every minute of the weekend all thanks to Alysse and her team. I was blown away by how beautiful everything was. To see everything we had talked about for months come to life was just incredible. I knew every detail that was going to be in that wedding but when I actually saw it in person I was shocked. They far exceeded our expectations and gave us a wedding weekend we will never ever forget. Thank you Alysse, Danielle, Tyne, Rachel B., Andrea H. and the whole DSS team for everything!!

DSS = Perfect for our destination wedding!
My husband and I are so happy that we chose Design Studio South for our week-of coordination! Danielle and Alysse have so much invaluable experience when it comes to both planning and coordinating weddings in Savannah, we absolutely could not have gotten through wedding planning without them. We live in Los Angeles and planned our wedding from afar, so it was such a joy and relief to pass off all of the last minute logistics and coordination to DSS our wedding week. They did a pitch-perfect job executing everything we had planned and our wedding day was again absolutely *perfect.*Sent on 03/16/2019
Here's why you should hire DSS. 1) They have personal relationships with all of the wedding vendors in Savannah, and will help you pick the best vendors for your wedding. 2) They are seasoned pros who will help you think through every minute detail. I am a type-A organized person but there was still so much that I never would have thought to plan or think about without DSS's help. 3) If you're planning a destination wedding, and want to use one of Savannah's Parks, DSS will go to City Hall and book it for you. 4) Again if you're planning from afar, you can ship all wedding related items to DSS in Savannah. 5) Wedding week coordination is SO important! It was absolutely key for us to have DSS's team transport last minute items to our ceremony site & reception, navigate the threat of rain, keep things on schedule, and gather all of the wedding items at the end of the night so you don't have to stay for cleanup (toasting flutes, flowers, extra favors, signage, etc.) I could go on and on about how important DSS was for our wedding. They gathered up my bridesmaids' belongings to bring to the reception (so they weren't lugging them around during photos), they arranged all signage at our ceremony and reception, they had umbrellas at the ready when it started to lightly sprinkle during our ceremony, they helped politely herd folks to the trolleys, they ran our rehearsal and paced our ceremony procession perfectly, etc. etc.! 6) I mentioned I was type-A already. I can very honestly say that I had so much faith in DSS that I truly relaxed during my wedding weekend and didn't worry once about the logistics. I highly recommend hiring a coordinator/planner so you can truly enjoy your wedding day and be fully present. 7) Personal anecdote: DSS made a wonderful on the fly recommendations to us on our wedding day. During cocktail hour they invited us to head into the empty reception hall to take a break and have a moment to ourselves. It was such a joy to have a quiet moment together to see the fruits of our labor, and take a much needed breather.
In short, you will not regret hiring DSS. They are the best of the best.

Best decision I made for our wedding was hiring DESIGN STUDIO SOUTH!!!
I cannot tell you how HAPPY I was and still amSent on 12/03/2018
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!!
