Fabulous Fete = Dream Team
Kate Perry is an absolute DREAM. She made our entire planning process so fun and stress-free, and helped to make our wedding day run flawlessly. Whether it was 8 months out or 2 days out, I was always astounded at how responsive, detailed, patient and helpful she was with all of my questions and needs. I truly didn't have a single worry knowing that she would execute and take care of everything on the day of. Kate truly made me feel like her only bride (although I know that's far from true) and planned everything with such heart and genuine excitement. Sabine is also incredible, extremely organized and super detailed. I met her the day before our wedding and it felt like I'd known her for years. She was so in tune with all of our plans and extremely helpful with our last-minute needs. These ladies are superwomen and work so well together - the absolute dream team! We did a ton of research in our process to find a wedding planner and I could not be happier with our decision. Choosing Fabulous Fete was by far one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

I might be as much in love with my new husband as I am with Fabulous Fete. Kate was the most amazing investment we made during wedding planning. From start to finish, everything was flawless, executed absolutely perfectly. Kate always emailed me about one or two things at a time, nailing down the really important vendors first then branching out more into my vision of the day and all the fine tuning. She never overwhelmed me with decisions and was always full of solutions if something didn't work with my budget. It was truly a dream to work with her and I will be forever grateful.

Kate & Sabine are awesome!! Kate was SO helpful leading up to the wedding - advice, suggestions, answering ALL my silly questions quickly and providing solid, actionable solutions. They were both there day of & made sure everything went absolutely seamlessly (if there were problems, I sure didn't hear about them - that's how good they are :)). It was a perfect day, and I can't thank them enough for all they did to make sure everything went so smoothly & turned out so beautifully. Clearly one of the best choices we made the whole way through was picking them to help us plan the wedding!

Sabine and Kate were amazing. You could tell that they paid attention to every detail that we wanted, and even were able to add a few things during the reception that were in our taste. One of the best things is that they took the stress off both the bride (most important), and myself (the groom) to the point we could focus on enjoying ourselves on our big day. They were always quick to respond and did so in a way that we could tell that they cared. I would highly recommend them! They truly live up to their name- Fabulous.

I wish there was a sixth star. My wife would usually be the one on here sharing her joy with how wonderful our wedding experience was, but it is I, the groom who cannot hold back my extreme gratitude and happiness for how special our day was thanks to Kate and Sabine at Fabulous Fete. We were both truly overwhelmed at how professional and helpful these ladies were with every aspect of planning our big day. From the bottom of our hearts Thank You so much for making our experience so special.

Sabine and Kate at Fabulous Fete were absolutely amazing! Planning a wedding out of town is no small feat but Sabine made it so seamless that we felt like we lived in Charleston. Her attention to detail ensured that nothing was missed and was so appreciated when you are managing a million details. We also were budget conscious and Sabine did an amazing job of keeping us on budget. The vendors she recommended were experts and were so great to work with. Sabine always made herself available to the point where we felt like we were her only clients. Anytime I was overwhelmed, Sabine was there to talk me through it and help problem solve. The day-of execution was flawless. Sabine and Kate took care of any obstacles and had such a calm demeanor that kept everyone at ease. People sometimes say that something will go wrong on the big day however, this was not our experience at all. Everything was flawless! The venue looked absolutely amazing and all the vendors that Sabine had recommended were so professional. All of our guests had an amazing time and it was a perfect night for us. Thank you for everything Sabine and Kate! You guys truly made our big day one we will never forget! : )

If you are getting married in the Charleston area, working with Fabulous Fête is a must. Working with Kate was so much fun! She is extremely knowledgeable of the Charleston wedding market, and made the entire process seamless and stress free. She helped me put my vision into fruition while staying in budget. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. I was able to enjoy the day and live in the moment knowing that Kate had everything under control and perfectly organized. I highly recommend working with Fabulous Fête and if I could do it all over again - I would still choose them!
Meghan · Married on 09/23/2017
I cannot say enough good things about the ladies of Fabulous Fete. Kate and Sabine are great and easy to work with! They will help you with anything you need from vendor recommendations to seating charts to day of setup and breakdown. These ladies work hard to ensure that everything about your day goes smoothly.

We worked with Sabine on our destination wedding in Sun Valley, Idaho. She was a DREAM to work with, and made our lives so easy.
We initially hired Sabine as a "day of coordinator", however she provided much, much more. She helped us 3 months before our wedding with managing our contracts and vendors, making sure everything was in order leading up to the wedding weekend, and catching everything that had "slipped through the cracks" on my end (place setting errors, food orders, contract errors, etc).
The month of our wedding, Sabine provided endless support through calls, emails and texts anytime we had questions. She caught TONS of little detail errors we had not thought of, and made sure we were 100% organized going into the wedding. She also provided us with a detailed timeline for day-of, and coordinated timing for vendor delivery with the ceremony & reception staff.
The day before the wedding, she was there for the rehearsal and diligently walked us through everything we needed to know and do on the day of. On the day of the wedding, she effortlessly moved things along and guided us from one event to the next (i.e. ceremony, happy hour, cake cutting, dancing, bouquet toss, etc).
Sabine was incredibly responsive, prompt, organized and most importantly, SO sweet and pleasant to work with. This girls knows the in's and outs of weddings, and makes it look and feel like a breeze! Endless thanks to Fabulous Fete for organizing our wedding, and allowing us to solely focus on family and friends on our wedding day.

Fabulous Fete, Sabine and Kate are absolutely a fabulous talented wedding planners! We reached out to Fabulous Fete in March 2016 and from there on the excitement energy of planning our wedding has been a blast! Our wedding day was My Husband and I got married May 27. We went for the full package deal and that was the best decision for us. We had a destination double venue wedding at Legare Waring House & Founders Hall and y'all let me tell you every detail was executed to perfection!!! From contacting vendors, getting quotes, last minute requests add- ons, changes etc.. Sabine was patient and fulfilled every single request we had without hesitation. Our ceremony and reception were an exact representation of my husband and I's personalities and traditional simplistic style! Our guest kept saying throughout the day and night that it was the most beautiful and classy wedding they've ever been to, and we believe it was the wedding of our dreams! We cannot thank Fabulous Fete enough for the hard work throughout the year of our planning, if we could do it all over again we would!! It was truly a blessing to work with Fabulous Fete!!

Are you looking for a Charleston wedding planner? I’m going to do you a favor. STOP your research and book Fabulous Fête right now!
We hired Sabine and Kate in December of 2015 to do full planning for our daughter’s wedding in May 2017. From that day on they were like members of the family. They responded promptly to every email, helped us stay within budget, and were always steadfast and dependable. Our daughter never felt like she was pressured to do anything or use a vendor that wasn’t completely in line with her ideas. These ladies are funny, warm, and dedicated to making sure their clients have the most fabulous day ever. And when life’s chaos happened (as it always does,) they were there to support us and keep the most precious day of our daughter and son-in-law’s day beautiful and special. Love you ladies!

My fiancé and I haven't even gotten married yet, but I can't wait another day to write a review for Fabulous Fete. I have been dealing with Kate for over a year now (we had a long engagement) and they have literally helped me every single step of the way for our wedding. We are getting married later this month and I feel completely confidant that this wedding is going to go SO well in their hands. From helping lock the best vendors, to setting up the perfect timeline of events, to dealing with my weekly (and sometimes DAILY) emails so quickly, these guys are hands down the best. I even had a bridal freak out about our guest turnout being smaller than we thought and Kate went through all of the reasons why our wedding is still going to be great--I literally have no worries at all and we're getting married in 20 6 days-how is that possible?! Not to mention.... they've kept us TOTALLY on budget!! They have so many contacts with vendors in the Charleston area that they were even able to cut us a ton of deals to save money along the way. Kate is responsive, professional and has gone above and beyond to make all of our wedding dreams come true. The money we put towards Fabulous Fete has proved to be the best money we've put towards our wedding.

Oh my goodness, what can I say about Fabulous Fete?! I just got married two weeks ago and I give them the highest recommendation; definitely book them. I booked them about two years before my wedding and they are literally the absolute best. I worked with Kate-- she gave me the most incredible referrals for vendors. Really amazing. I had to thank them all so many times, because they really got the vision I was going for, were there to help every step of the way (you know, I'd never planned a wedding before), genuinely had my back at every corner and seemed to truly care about my day going exactly the way I wanted. She was such a pleasure to work with. At the ceremony some of the parents didn't drop off their kids with the babysitters we'd hired (and of course one of the boys started yelling and crying before the ceremony started) and she politely went up to the various parents and asked them to bring their little ones inside, which I'm sure wasn't the most comfortable thing to do-- but I really appreciated it. These ladies made sure my day ran so smoothly. Thank you SO SO much Kate & Sabine, you ladies are gems.
Liz · Married on 12/09/2016
The ladies are Fabulous Fete are amazing! Sabine was great with referrals and suggestions for our big day. Sabine guided us through the entire planning process for over a year and we had the perfect wedding day. Thanks Sabine and Kate!
Elena · Married on 04/24/2016
Let’s just say that my wedding wouldn’t have happened without Kate at Fabulous Fete. We selected the full package, for many reasons. I was an out-of-town bride, but my family lives in Charleston. This meant having packed weekends of wedding events and decisions. The vendor choices in Charleston are so overwhelming since there are so many! We didn’t know where to start. The vendors that FF work with are AMAZING! I know we had the top of the line service. We were engaged for over a year, and throughout the ENTIRE wedding planning process, Kate was positive, organized, and patient. There were absolutely times I got upset or frustrated, and Kate was always understanding and there to keep things on track. The end result was perfect. The Fabulous Fete team made the stress of planning a wedding FUN – we did none of the background work and only made fun decisions. I couldn’t believe how much they took care of from beginning to the day of. They handled everything: details, communications, and timelines. I literally just showed up to the wedding and had the best day of my life thanks to Fabulous Fete! I am over the moon with our day and everything in between. Fabulous Fete is the best and will make your wedding perfect, I will forever recommend them!
Rachel · Married on 10/11/2015
Oh my gosh, I loved working with these ladies! Sabine was my point of contact, and she was fantastic. She provided help and guidance when I needed it and was super quick to respond. Having both her and Kate there to make sure that everything went smoothly on our wedding day was easily one of the best wedding planning decisions we made. My only regret was that I didn't involve them sooner. Thank you so much Sabine and Kate, we could not have done it without you!!!
Sarah · Married on 10/02/2015
I used Fabulous Fete for 'day of' coordination and could not be happier with the result. Kate and Sabine were simply amazing. Even before the day of the wedding they were always available to answer questions and provide recommendations. When we got to that day they worked with all of my vendors and I didn't have to worry about anything. Despite the terrible weather, their help made our wedding day perfect and stress free. They are both so fun and nice, I couldn't have made a better choice. Thanks so much for the help!!
Jillian · Married on 08/08/2015
Kate and Sabine were absolutely FABULOUS!!! Definitely the BEST decision I ever made during the wedding planning process! To be honest, I was a little anxious at first hiring a planner to stay within my budget.... but honestly-- trust in the professionals....they actually help you stay on budget and they really know what they are doing better than you haha! I hired them as my full wedding planner and they literally helped me every step of the way (including quick response to my thousands of emails for many many months!!). The week of the wedding when I would have received 1 million emails from so many vendors-- Sabine took care of everything and just let me know when it was done. When it came to my wedding day... I had a ton of DIY crafts that I could not have put up without their amazing help. The wedding day went by quick- and without their help in making sure everything stayed in check and on schedule-- I would have never been able to enjoy our big day! If you are looking for a company that is friendly, easy-going, always helping you stay on budget, prompt with emails, and will literally make your wedding day COMPLETELY stress free and absolutely gorgeous-- HIRE Kate and Sabine! We love you ladies! Jillian and Cameron
Katelyn · Married on 07/25/2015
I can't begin to tell you how wonderful and helpful Kate and Sabine were during the planning process! We live in RIchmond, VA and weren't able to get to Charleston on a regular basis to plan the wedding. They were there every step of the way helping us make decisions and check stuff off our list. Even if it was late on a Friday night or early on a Sunday morning, Sabine would be emailing us questions/info about our wedding. Not only did they work hard on our wedding leading up to it, but on the day of they were amazing as well! Sabine kept things rolling and made sure that we stuck to our schedule as best we could. Our wedding wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for all they did. We HIGHLY recommend Fabulous Fete to anyone who is looking for a wedding planner in Charleston, SC!! Thank y'all so much!

Kasey · Married on 04/11/2015
SOOO very happy that I chose to hire these ladies. Kate and Sabine were awesome to work with! I had a lot of DIY items, and it was absolutely a must have to have help setting everything up. These two did all of the work and it turned out beautifully. I absolutely don't know what I would have done without Sabine at my rehearsal! She kept everything organized, on track, and kept me stress free on my wedding day! (except for the rain- but we couldn't control that!). I planned my wedding myself, but hired Fabulous Fete as my day of coordinator. Best money I spent. And they are super affordable. CHOOSE FABULOUS FETE!!
Kaitlyn · Married on 03/20/2015
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to the ladies at Fabulous Fete for giving me my absolute DREAM wedding!!! There is no way anyone else could have pulled off the amazing job that they did. Kate worked tirelessly to give us everything we wanted while staying UNDER my budget! Not only did these ladies work tirelessly in the planning of my wedding but everything was absolutely perfect on our big day. I never had to worry once about the set up or flow of the day. I am eternally grateful for everything that Fabulous Fete has done for my husband and I and will sing the praises to the rest of Charleston. We cannot thank you enough Kate and Sabine!!!
Amy · Married on 03/14/2015
These two ladies made my special day BEYOND memorable!! If there were issues, I had no idea because they handled everything so wonderfully and ran the entire process so smoothly I have not one unpleasant memory from our wedding. These women know what they are doing, allowing the bride to relax and know everything is under control. Thank you a million times over!!!!
Amy · Married on 03/14/2015
I hired Sabine and Kate for day of planning. Let me just say…BEST MONEY EVER SPENT! They know what they are doing and as your wedding day being one of the biggest events in your life, it's relaxing to know that these two women have it all under control. I remember my wedding day as wonderful. If anything went wrong, I didn't know about it because they handled it all. We were in constant e-mail contact before our wedding. Sabine and I met to talk logistics and she made me feel so calm and reassured that everything was being handled. They made sure every detail was covered, many of which I never even thought of. Thank you Sabine and Kate for making our wedding so special and memorable.

I chose Kate and Sabine because they were well-rated, personable, and within my budget. Throughout the entire wedding planning process, I felt they were enjoyable to work with. They always responded to my questions and concerns right away. They were patient with my indecisiveness and at times apathy towards certain wedding planning aspects (way too many details). I felt they provided excellent vendor recommendations at various price levels. They do not cater specifically to brides who are having ridiculously extravagant weddings. Their ability to work with everyone, is their best trait. They communicated seamlessly with both my mom and me which is not an easy task. Anyways, I was elated with my wedding day and how the planning process unfolded; this, in a large part, is a result of Kate and Sabine.
