    Sara coordinated our very complicated wedding with ease!

    We had a 350 person outdoor wedding during a serious thunderstorm and Sara made it the most magical day ever! She coordinated all of our vendors (tents, generators, lighting, catering, 2 bands, draping, port-a-potties, flowers, buses, everything) and made it an amazing success. Sara can honestly do anything. She's amazing to work with, I've never met someone with so much enthusiasm, and extremely knowledgeable. We just love her.

    We had no idea we even needed a wedding planner and I honestly can't imagine what we would have done without her. I would highly recommend her and the rest of the Golden Chic staff to anyone looking for a little help (or a lot of help) with their big day!

    Golden Chic Events is a huge life savor! Sara helped sculpt my vision and made it a reality and even more! All of her vendors she recommended were just as easy to work with. From invitations to flowers and linens, etc.

    Sara was easy to talk to and was always there to calm me and answer any of my questions throughout the planning process.

    When the big day arrived I was more calm than I thought. Actually I was completely calm and just very excited to enjoy the beautiful day. I knew that Golden Chic would take care of all the final decor things, making sure all the vendors arrived and knew where to be and any last minute things. And in the case that something went wrong they would handle it and I never had to sweat! The day went perfectly and I have to give all the credit to Golden Chic for making the day run soo smoothly!

    It was everything I could imagine and it's all thanks to Golden Chic!

    Sara also did two of my older sisters weddings, which I must add also were amazing in their own ways. This just shows that Golden Chic can do any type of wedding from a more formal traditional wedding to a low key informal backyard wedding! Beautiful Job :)

    The entire Golden Chic staff are down to earth, creative, organized and passionate about making wedding days look fantastic and run smoothly.

    Wedding planning can be stressful, but they have a way of making the monumental list of to-do's manageable and even fun.

    On the day of the wedding, when something inevitably goes awry, Golden Chic works their magic and no one is ever the wiser.

    If you want to remove the stress from your entire wedding experience, Golden Chic is the way to go.

    We hired Golden Chic so that we would have someone working on our behalf, with our venue and other vendors, to ensure a beautiful and well-coordinated wedding day. Golden Chic was very responsive to our unique wishes for the day, and kept all of the vendors "on the same page" with us. Our coordinator was very professional in offering advice, answering our questions, keeping notes, and solving unexpected problems without a fuss. The day turned out to be stress-free and fun, just as we hoped it would, reflecting the efforts of many talented vendors happy to contribute to the success of the day. We appreciate what Golden Chic did behind-the-scenes to help us put together a memorable day of celebration.

    Looking through the rating system, if we could give more stars we absolutely would. Quality was outstanding throughout the whole planning process. And most importantly, the final result was beautiful.

    With regard to responsiveness, we never had anything close to a problem.

    I'm not even going to get into value because Sara Dahmen and Golden Chic are worth every single penny.

    And they will work around your schedule as opposed to the other way around.

    Our favorite aspect of working with Golden Chic might have been the vendor selection process. They would come to us with multiple options, give us objective opinions, references and information and then WE would make the final call. Thorough, knowledgeable, and fun. We could not have been happier with the final result or the planning.

    Hiring Golden Chic to coordinate our wedding was one of the best decisions we made in our planning process! Thanks to Sara and her staff, our day was more than perfect. Everything was in order, looked more amazing than I could have imagined and, best of all, I had absolutely nothing to worry about on my big day! I could focus on enjoying every moment! Working with Golden Chic for the wedding planning was easy and enjoyable. We received great vendor recommendations, amazing communication and help with the many, many decisions we had to make along the way. I really loved working with Sara and we stay in touch to this day! If you are at all considering hiring Golden Chic as the planner for your wedding, don't hesitate! We can promise you the end result will be an amazing, worry-free wedding day you won't forget.

    Golden Chic were very down-to-earth and easy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone. They will really meet you where you want to be, letting you do whatever you want to do yourself, and helping on other things.

    We hired Golden Chic for my daughter's wedding. Sara and Katie were delightful to work with, responsive and professional at all times. My daughter resides in California and had a definite idea of the look she wanted. Sara worked with Jenny to create a design book and the wedding was beautiful and everything Jenny dreamed of. They also gave us a budget for each vendor based on our needs, a timeline and helped us to find and work with vendors, even setting up appointments when Jenny and David were in town. The wedding was beautiful and stress free. I wanted to be a guest at my daughter's wedding and enjoy the day and I was able to thanks to the hard work of Golden Chic who took care of every detail. They are the best and we would use them again when our younger daughter plans her wedding.

    Sara is an amazing person! She is very organized and knows all the best vendors in the Milwaukee area. She is a very caring person as well, not only about helping you get your dream wedding but about you and your entire family. We have become lifelong friends, and I will miss getting to see her all the time! I can't recommend her enough! She made my day so stress free and absolutely perfect! LOVE HER!

    The most telling review is when all vendors (including the venue) expect those directly referred by Golden Chic, said they wouldn't refer them to potential clients. While they have good recommendations for vendors, they aren't as professional, sophisticated or versed in high-end events as marketed on their site.

    Golden Chic Events & Consulting's reply:

    We feel the best review of a planner is when people keep coming back. We are now working with second and third daughters within the same families, who come back for every wedding in the family because they are so happy with the services they receive. We are very sorry that this particular couple did not feel we were able to deliver a high-end event for them. Many well-traveled guests said how it was one of the most beautiful weddings they had ever attended.

    It saddens us that the accusations of unprofessionalism are listed; the instances this client speaks about are fully backed up by a paper trail, showing that we were in line with deadlines, had been overly informative with dates and instructions, and we were in line with getting everything done and beautifully executed. We were more than generous in this client's tardiness to pay us (which nullified and officially terminated our contract with them, though we continued to work for them in order for their wedding to remain on task), in having them over to our home for a meal, and in many instances when they breached contract (for example, keeping us abreast of communications happening between themselves and vendors, which they failed to do several times). Our patience, generosity and kindness toward them was just as professional and full fold as all our clients receive, and the overwhelming majority of our couples are thrilled with their experience and high-end weddings they receive from Golden Chic.

    We ask our reviewers to read this review with a grain of salt, and know that we have a paper trail to refute the accusations made here.
