Pays close attention to every detail
During my first meeting with Carly, I shared with her that all of the small details were very important to me and that I wanted our wedding to be elegant and romantic. I also told her that I wanted to plan the wedding in a month before I returned to work as a teacher. She accepted the challenge and called The Alfond Inn, my dream venue, during the meeting and we toured and booked the venue that same day. During the next few weeks, we met with all of our vendors and planned our entire wedding. During the weeks leading up to our wedding, she checked in with me often to ask how I was feeling, if I had any questions about anything, if I wanted to meet with her to go over anything, etc. Our wedding was magical! The ballroom looked like a beautiful garden (with stars on the ceiling). It was STUNNING! Carly ONLY works with the best vendors. I knew that I didn’t have to worry about anything the day of the wedding because we had hired Carly. She made sure that everything happened on time and she was so attentive to the wedding party and to my parents. She helped me put on my wedding dress and dry my tears after I did a first look with my Dad which was SO special. She was with me through every step of the process! Weeks after the wedding, our family and friends asked if we could have the wedding all over again. Everyone had so much fun and many people have said that our wedding is the BEST wedding that they have ever been to.Sent on 07/11/2019

Dream Planner- Look No Further
Carly will be the planner of your dreams- no need to look further for someone. We worked with Carly over the last year for our wedding that took place 07/17/21. I am not sure what I expected from a planner but based on our experience, I can tell you Carly will offer you everything and more. I have recapped the most stand-out things below about Carly and our experience working with her.
Personality and Professionalism:
Carly is an exceptional wedding planner- Professional beyond standard, creative, thoughtful, vivacious and dedicated. Her professionalism was expressed by how she conducted herself but also how she communicated with us and our vendors. Kindness over anything! She also had this incredible ability of not forcing her opinion when decisions needed to be made. Rather, when questions were asked, she outlined options and always lent a story to bring more clarity to a situation/outcome. While Carly is truly the one planning (we as a couple had no idea what we were doing, so we needed that guidance!), she empowered us to feel like we were leading the process without feeling the slightest bit of stress. In addition, as she has been in the industry for years, her contacts are incredible and I highly recommend considering any vendor she recommends. I find it incredibly important to emphasize how wonderful Carly is. While you want a wedding planner who is fantastic at their job, you also want to LOVE them ….and you will with Carly. She bent over backwards for us and continuously said “if you ever need anything, call me”. She meant it/ proved that throughout the planning process. I walked away from this experience at first categorizing Carly as my planner but now my friend.
As for her creativeness, it is unmatched. When asked what we envisioned our dream wedding to be, all we could say was “well we like tropical flowers, pastels, driftwood and want a good band”. Carly took that statement and transformed our wedding into a whimsical tropical wonderland infused with elegance and band that was out of this world. Again, Carly never forced her opinions on what we should do, rather provided us with visuals and whatever we liked, she helped bring that to life. Going into the planning process, I never considered the “design” element and quite frankly was blown away with what was created--- our wedding was beyond a “pinterest” wedding- rather it was unique to us and absolutely magical.
Follows the Budget
Carly will keep you humble about your budget to ensure you don’t overextend yourself. Everything she brought to us, was within budget and if we wanted something more, she would first say “that is OK but I do want to mention that this will be out of budget before we continue to move forward on this”. Transparency is key during this process and we were never let down by Carly.
As mentioned before, Carly’s professionalism and hands-on approach left of us stress-free. If I had the slightest bit of concern, I would connect with her and she would reassure me that everything was OK (very prompt response rate!). So while the stress was non-existent because Carly managed everything, we also loved the planning process because Carly was just so easy and wonderful to talk with. Her flexibility and bright personality made everything move along so well (and made wedding planning so fun!). If our wedding day had any hiccups, I was absolutely clueless because Carly never let on. From start to finish, I was floating in the clouds during our wedding weekend because Carly handled everything for us.
I truly cannot say enough good things about Carly. I cannot imagine my wedding experience without her. Forever proud to be a “Carly Bride/Couple”. Thank you Carly for making all our dreams come true. You are simply spectacular.

Orlando Designer Weddings by Carly is top notch!!!!
I don’t have enough words I can use to describe Carly. She is the absolute best and it was such an honor to have her assist in planning our wedding. Her attention to detail and professionalism made her an absolute joy to work with. She accomplished all that I asked for and more. She was always available when I needed something or asked a question especially the weeks leading up to the wedding. She even made herself available to my bridal party as they tried to surprise me with a few things. All in all, with Carly the experience was amazing. The wedding day was superb, our families had nothing but great reviews. If I had to do it all over again, Carly would still be my top choice.Sent on 05/02/2021
