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 can not recommend Loraine and Invitation Only highly enough! She not only assisted with all design aspects, rentals, vendor contracts, floor plan, etc. she became a HERO when we had to cancel my daughter’s wedding two weeks before the planned date due to Covid. Loraine immediately contacted all vendors, assisted in determining a new wedding date, and rescheduled vendors. She did her job twice!!! She was also amazing on the day of the wedding! As the mother of the bride I had to do nothing! When the wedding guitarist’s car broke down and was unable to make the ceremony Loraine immediately enlisted the help of the DJ who moved/set up equipment and downloaded all of the songs my daughter had chosen for the ceremony. Loraine provided a much more stress-free event than I could’ve ever imagined! If the occasion arises I will certainly use Invitation Only and Loraine again...this was absolutely the best money I spent!Sent on 11/28/2020

Everything was perfect!
I tried to prepare my daughter for anything that might go awry by telling her those were the things you remember, but to my amazement, everything went off perfectly! Loraine was absolutely incredible with her ability to be prepared for every aspect of the wedding. I would tell anyone to totally entrust them with all aspects of the wedding and to relax and enjoy it.Sent on 10/07/2019

The BEST wedding planner in Charleston, SC
Loraine with Invitation Only was absolutely amazing and THE BEST money I spent for my wedding! Although we had a wedding with under 50 guests, Loraine really helped me with final touches for the big day a month prior, the rehearsal the day before, and the day of. She was so organized and professional throughout the entire process and during the wild beginning, unknown stages of the Coronavirus. My other vendors bragged about her professionalism and organization. Loraine made sure everyone was where they needed to be on the day of and kept to our predetermined timeline. Also since I did not want my family and friends to be worried about picking up after the reception, Loraine's services included post-reception pack-up of all of my personal items brought for the ceremony and reception. Invitation Only made our big day the most relaxing and enjoyable day. There were no hiccups and if there were, Loraine made sure that my friends, family and I did not see them. I HIGHLY recommend Loraine at Invitation Only!Sent on 11/12/2020

She saved the day!
Invitation Only proved to be the most valuable wedding vendor I booked for my October wedding. Loraine helped me with SO MUCH on top of running our ceremony and reception! To name a few things: logistics/layout, timeline, rentals, decorating, rehearsal, and vendor selection (this one turned out to be extremely important). This woman is a true professional and great at her job, but what really sticks with me is her crisis management and level of commitment to her clients. She went above and beyond to make sure that our outdoor wedding didn’t get ruined by an uninvited guest – Tropical Storm Nester. Our wedding day turned into a hurricane-party reception (still southern and dreamy, even with the rain) followed by a beautiful private ceremony the next day. It was memorable, charming, and all of our guests had an amazing time. If you peeked behind the scenes that weekend you would have seen Loraine (and her assistant, Trent) handling tent booking, implementing a rain plan, coordinating coverage for both days with necessary vendors (who ALL went the extra mile for us that weekend – so glad she found us such high-quality vendors), and working tirelessly through the wind and rain to make sure that our reception was beautiful, stress free, and safe. I can assure you that we would have NEVER been able to pull this off if it weren’t for Loraine – she saved our wedding by turning an unfortunate circumstance into something incredible. My family will always be grateful for her dedication, compassion, and professionalism.Sent on 01/20/2020

Loraine and her team at Invitation Only are superb. She literally handled every single thing for our wedding as we were all the way across the country and overwhelmed with the whole process of trying to pull this off. She was in contact with us always and did a great job coordinating everything with all of the vendors. I am so thankful to her and her team for making this wedding effortless for us. We showed up and it was wonderful..and if there’s any hiccups along the way, Loraine can work her magic and fix things in a jiffy. Our wedding was so fun, we are forever grateful. Thank you Invitation Only!Sent on 11/07/2019

Couldn't have done it without Loraine!
Loraine was INCREDIBLE as our day-of-coordinator! She sold me at our first phone call, despite my relatively small budget - she is worth it! Loraine was DETAIL-ORIENTED, ORGANIZED, CALM, AND COLLECTED throughout the whole process and day of. My dad is a worrier about absolutely everything and she was able to put his mind at ease and even help him fold his pocket square. We were so impressed how well she had everything under control, but also stayed out of the way. She found us when she needed us - approval for a last minute request by my FIL to give a toast, and to let us know if we were ahead or behind schedule (since I'm type-A myself), but otherwise worked behind the scenes with our vendors and everything in our eyes went PERFECTLY! We also used Invitation Only for rentals including some linens, lanterns, and an easel, and they offer great pricing on those! It was a nice benefit not having to manage yet another vendor for rentals. We love Loraine and highly recommend her to anyone and everyone for wedding planning or coordination!Sent on 10/07/2019

Great experience with Invitation Only!
We had a great experience working with Loraine and her team at Invitation Only! Loraine coordinated my brother's wedding on Edisto a few years ago, and was the first person we talked to when planning our own Edisto wedding. She is incredibly responsive and knowledgeable-- offering suggestions along the way to make our wedding go smooth while still understanding our "vision". All of our vendors were happy to be working with Loraine, she is clearly well-respected in the industry. Highly recommend for planning and rental needs!Sent on 05/19/2019

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's reply:Thank you Sherri! We appreciate the constructive criticism and will definitely take care of that. Congratulations on your wedding.

About 3 months before my wedding, my first wedding coordinator left town leaving me in the lurch! Turns out this was a blessing in disguise because it led me to Loraine at Invitation Only! She was absolutely amazing from start to finish! As a type-A bride, she was able to hear my vision and made it come to life! The planning journey was not without it’s hiccups, but she made me feel as relaxed as possible. Plus, we were able to add in rentals, which was a huge bonus. I highly recommend Invitation Only!Sent on 01/26/2019

Kris is the best!
I highly recommend Invitation Only to meet all of your wedding rental needs. Kris is so sweet and helpful. A few weeks before our wedding, she emailed my mom and I to say that their arbor had been damaged in a previous wedding and wanted our opinion on which arbor we liked best to replace it with. She showed up right on time the day of the wedding, there was nothing missing in our order and everything looked fantastic.Sent on 10/30/2018
Invitation Only's reply:Thank you Alissa! That means a lot :) I'm glad you guys were happy with everything, and I hope your marriage is amazing.

Highly Recommend! Amazing Experience!
I cannot say enough good things about Loraine and everyone at Invitation Only. Hiring Invitation Only was the best decision my groom and I made during our wedding planning process. Loraine is such a talented designer and planner! She listened to all our ideas as well as concerns and made suggestions to ensure our wedding was everything we dreamed it would be. And it was! The decor and design were so beautiful. We were stress free day-of because Loraine coordinated and organized all details so perfectly. We did not have to do a thing! Everyone was so friendly and genuine from beginning to end. I highly recommend Invitation Only!Sent on 04/16/2019

Chris and the entire team at Invitation Only were great to work with from start to finish. They helped us through all the little changes we had to make along the way during our wedding planning process, and were so quick to respond to every question that we had.

Best decision I made was to have a day of coordinator for our wedding. Loraine started working with us a month before the event and made the whole wedding day seem like a dream. The set up and table arrangements were stunning. There were a few obstacles that came up the day of but all I can say is she got it done and took care of everything. More than she should have, and were forever grateful.Sent on 03/26/2018

Kristina · Married on 10/27/2017
My husband Geoff and I hired Invitation Only for our wedding coordination/rentals and I must say Loraine is the bomb. She is kind, cool, experienced, prompt and professional. She always made us feel like our wedding was just as important to her as it was to us. Anytime I had a question or concern she addressed it right away. From the thousands of emails and texts I sent to the random office drops-in by my husband, Loraine always made sure to give us her undivided attention. The day of our wedding Loraine and her crew absolutely nailed it. She had contact with all the vendors and everything was decorated exactly as I had imagined. It was so nice not having to worry about all the details that I had spent months stressing over. Loraine and her crew went above and beyond, even clearing tables of food after noticing our caterer had slacked off a bit. I honestly dont know what we would have done without her. If I had to do it all over again the one thing that would absolutely remain the same is Loraine!Sent on 03/14/2018

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
