Invitation Only is a boutique wedding planning firm based in Summerville, South Carolina and conveniently located near Charleston. We have been creating stylish and memorable Charleston weddings since 2013, specializing in full-service and partial-service wedding planning. We also provide month-of coordination for those who wish to plan their own wedding, but need some guidance in the month prior. Last year, we reinstated our day-of coordination package for select Lowcountry venues! Although our specialty surrounds wedding-related services, we are also experienced in corporate event management and private party planning. Utilizing our network of talented Lowcountry vendors, Invitation Only can bring together all the specific, unique details of your event to ensure that everyone involved has an unforgettable experience!
Invitation Only is also an event rentals supplier, meaning we have an in-house inventory of items available to both our Clients and the public year-round. Our inventory consists of tables, chairs, linens and other specialty items to fit your distinct style. We work closely with larger rental companies throughout the Lowcountry, so if you don't see something in our inventory we are happy to borrow items from our friends.
Invitation Only is an equal opportunity Lowcountry business! We do not discriminate against any Client based on age, race, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation or political preference. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are a small business who remembers every face that walks through our doors!

Choosing Invitation Only was the best choice I made for my wedding. From the moment we first started speaking Loraine was attentive, genuine and made me feel like my wedding was the only thing in the world she cared about. She listened to my ideas and wants and put together the most PERFECT weekend. My vendors were flawlessly organized and I did not have to do a THING. I showed up on my wedding day, enjoyed myself, and left. She put together everything, took it all down and stored it for me while I was on my honeymoon. I could go on and on about all the little ways she made my day spectacular, like how ALL of my vendors knew her and even expressed they were glad to work with her again, she knew tips and tricks to work magic at my venue, and she was able to kindly, gently nudge my chaotic family and friends to their places when necessary. She made everything come together perfectly. I have recommended her to family and friends- and I recommend her to anyone searching for a planner, coordinator or even just rentals. It’s not a decision you will regret.Sent on 03/20/2018

Loraine and her crew were awesome to work with on a styled shoot! Everything about them was extremely professional and Loraine was always on time with answering phone calls and emails. We created a beautiful video together with the help from all of the teams from the day and we so look forward to working with them again!Sent on 12/05/2018

I was very pleased with the linens and the delivery. They were on time and the linens looked great. Some of the white chairs could be repainted and the scuffs removed.Sent on 03/23/2019

Invitation Only, LLC is absolutely amazing. Their attention to detail is like no other! We absolutely adore working with Loraine and her team!
I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding with Loraine as the wedding coordinator and I can confidently say that you're in good hands if you are on the fence about hiring her your wedding or event. I figured that I'd take the time to explain some of the things that she did behind the scenes for me as a photographer. A few weeks before the wedding, she called me. We had never worked together before and she wanted to verbally introduce herself to me and see if there was anything she could do for me leading up to the wedding day... Who does that!? haha! The most I get from wedding coordinators is an email 3-5 days before a wedding with the official timeline that I am expected to follow. 9 days before the wedding I received the official timeline. Loved it! Her timeline was clearly laid out and she took me as the photographer into consideration. The reception timeline was designed to give me time to take the bride and groom outside for photos during the golden hour... 9 times out of 10, I have to request a wedding planner for a timeline adjustment so that I can do this. The fact that the first timeline she sent me had the sunset time on the timeline and space for me to take them outside was extremely impressive. On the wedding day, the professionalism continued. Every wedding has curveballs thrown their way as the day unfolds. Her team handled them very well and she kept me posted throughout the day of any last minute changes. I actually judge wedding planners by what they do at the end of the night. I hold true to the words: "It's not how you start, it's how you finish". The average wedding planner will disappear when the dancing portion of the night begins and you don't see them again until the last dance/exit is about to happen when they are officially needed... The ones that go above and beyond are the coordinators that stay visible the entire event just in case the bride needs help with something. Loraine constantly kept herself visible the entire night even though I knew she was exhausted. And there you have it. She's the real deal! Invitation Only has my endorsement.
After working closely with a lot of Wedding Planners Loraine and Chris are my absolute favorite people to work with. Invitation Only is the premier “Hands free” Event Company and I would recommend them to everyone.
