Taffeta & Tattoos is an army of two women who believe that every event and host is unique. We have never fit in to a mold and don't think that your event should either. We use our creative and event planning expertise to fashion your one of a kind event that reflects your personality and vision.
We understand that everyone has their own levels of creativity and craftiness and we are here to fill in the gaps. We are available to create and plan your event from start to finish with just a nugget of an idea, we can execute all your ideas that you simply don’t have the time (or resources) to complete, or we can just swoop in and take care of all the logistical elements that aren’t nearly as fun as your visions.
From big budget extravaganza to DIY style simplicity, our varied experience can help you create your signature event. We love the challenge that every event presents from black tie galas to offbeat weddings to charitable benefits. Our goal is to design and create a night that you are relaxed enough to enjoy and that your guests will be talking about for months.

Taffeta & Tattoos recently designed and planned our wedding and we could not be happier! Having their advice and connections before the wedding and keen eye the day of for set ups and mishaps, was invaluable. We absolutely recommend working with them!Sent on 08/07/2014

Taffeta & Tattoos played a huge part in planning my wedding and their work was absolutely incredible. As you can imagine, planning a wedding can be extremely stressful. With a limited budget I was terrified that I would be left alone to plan this huge event, but then I was referred to Taffeta and Tattoos and was shocked that there was an event planning service that I could actually afford! Reaching out to them was the best decision I could have made, because once I did, not only did I stop feeling so alone, I actually started to ENJOY the planning process.Sent on 03/13/2013
In the months and weeks leading up to the big day, Clarissa kept me on track and as stress free as possible. She helped me with everything from selecting my save the dates and invitations, planning my decor, ordering my cake, hiring musicians for our cocktail hour, choosing a DJ for the reception, plotting out the run of events, etc., etc., etc. Her ability to stay organized, calm, and collected throughout the entire process was a HUGE blessing. She kept things straight for me that I never would have been able to keep track of on my own and checked in with me as much (or as little) as I wanted her to as we worked together.
On the day of my wedding my husband and I were so thankful to have Clarissa on-site with us. The day went off without a hitch. She handled everything from juggling our vendors, coordinating the setup of the ceremony site, decorating the cocktail hour spot, and working her magic on the tent where we hosted our reception. She saw everything through to the very end and as people were finishing their cake and leaving, Clarissa was making sure our vendors were paid and that our stacks of favors remained neat looking as guests grabbed their parting gifts and left.
I STRONGLY recommend Taffeta & Tattoos to anyone looking for an awesome service to plan a special event!!

We learned pretty quickly that wedding planning can get overwhelming. Between finding venues and vendors, to all the DIY elements we wanted to include, to the logistics of managing it all – I quickly realized that there was no way I could pull it off while I had a full time job. It was then that Taffeta & Tattoos swooped in to the rescue.Sent on 03/14/2013
We had an initial meeting to discuss all of the random elements my fiancé and I wanted and all the DIY projects I hoped to incorporate. From that meeting they came back to us with a theme and design that tied all of our seemingly random inspirations together, in a killer way.
Our reception venue was bare bones (all we got was four walls, a floor, a roof, tables, and chairs). The lovely ladies at Taffeta & Tattoos worked with us for months to ensure that everything would come together without a hitch. They researched permits and insurance that we would possibly need and made note of local noise ordinances that were specific to our location.
Though it was extra, we chose to have both Andrea & Clarissa travel to be onsite as our Day of Coordinators. They set up the venue, coordinated deliveries, vendor arrival, and ensured everything was perfect. From the arrival of the ice truck to the set-up of the photo booth to pushing play on the ipod, everything went perfectly.
Something they don’t advertise (and hopefully something you will never need) but are experts in, is crisis management. Less than a month before our wedding, our caterer (who we booked on our own) fell through. Restaurant closed and deposits refunded – we were in a panic. We called them and asked if it was too late to add their vendor management services to our package. They laughed and found us a caterer within a week.
These ladies are fantastic and are super willing to work with you to create a package that fits your needs. As I caught glimpses of them running around during the reception, I was glad that they were taking care of everything (so I didn’t have to).
