The best money I have every spent.
I truly consider myself a detail-oriented person and I have high expectations of the professionals I work with. It is for this reason I was so exceptionally amazed with the work of Vanessa Saturday. She is truly one of the best, world-class professionals I have ever had the pleasure of working with.Sent on 10/14/2019
Vanessa helped me and my husband plan a wedding in Savannah in about 3 months from New York City. It was particularly challenging because we did the wedding at two venues - both of which were completely empty and required us to coordinate and rent everything down to the forks, plates, napkins etc. Given our short time frame, and the fact that we had non-traditional venues AND that there was more than one venue, the wedding was logistically challenging to plan. There were many many moving parts and vendors we had to work with. And, to top it all off, we were not even in Savannah nor did we have any family or friends that could help out locally.
Working with Vanessa actually made the process enjoyable. Not only does she have an incredibly strong foothold in Savannah (she knows basically every vendor and so you can ask her for anything, and she has a list of people she immediately contacts), she also always makes you know she is on your side as her client. We had some specific requests - i.e. putting flowers all over our car, creating a marching band parade between venues etc - and each time she would go and figure out how to go forward with logistically challenging plans.
I also appreciated her responsiveness. She was truly readily available whenever I reached out to her, which especially towards the month of the wedding was multiple times a day. And what was great about it, was I would call, email or text her and she would pick up already knowing exactly what I was calling about and already handy with a solution or an update to my question.
The day of the wedding was honestly 100x better because she was there with her staff member (who though I didn't really correspond with, was there the day of the wedding and was incredibly helpful and kind). We didn't worry about anything other than getting ourselves to the wedding hall. At the end of the wedding, Vanessa brought back all of our items from the venues to our hotel.
Truly, I cannot say enough good things about her as a person and wedding planner. If you are even on the fence about hiring a planner or hiring Vanessa versus anyone else, take it from me that you should just do it. It will be the best money you ever spent and it will make your big day much more enjoyable and frankly, just better overall :). I vetted multiple other wedding planners in the area, and trust me, there is no one better.

Created our absolute dream wedding!
Vanessa did a wonderful job helping us plan and coordinate our wedding, especially considering all the last-minute changes that were being made due to COVID. We were planning our wedding in Savannah from North Carolina and had limited opportunities to actually drive to Savannah to plan in person. Vanessa knew a lot about the Savannah vendors and her recommendations were spot on. She stayed true to what my vision for the wedding was and did everything she could to help us carry it out. The day of the wedding, everything was perfect and my husband and I did not have to worry about a single thing. Even when there was a slight mishap with my bustle, Vanessa was on it right away safety pinning my bustle back into place. I could not have imagined a more perfect day. Thanks Vanessa for all your hard work and helping create our dream wedding!Sent on 12/06/2020

Our Day of Angel!
We hired Vanessa to be our Week of Coordinator about a year before our big day. Not only was Vanessa not just a week of contact, Vanessa was a huge source of peace of mind through this whole wedding planning process! Between helping me with timelines, vendor finding and navigating, 2020, and more, she was SUCH a help throughout the whole wedding planning process!Sent on 11/21/2020
On the Day of, oh my goodness, even my family remarked on what a huge help she was and even my friends were so impressed with how seamlessly she managed a sparkler exit!
Between navigating all of our vendors, making sure my (now!) husband I got our own meals, keeping on the timeline, getting everything set and managed, while also allowing for freedom and fun of just enjoying the whole experience, we could not be more grateful to her and her staff for being in our corner and so seamlessly managing all of the things(and those are the minor things)!
Not to mention she was professional, kind, supportive, and a offered the perfect sense of calm to our day! I can't say enough good things-- HIRE HER!
Vanessa-- Thank you! Thank you, thank you! You are a gift to your brides !

We couldn't have done this without her!
Wedding planning during a pandemic is a nightmare. I feel my eye twitch a little when pinterest suggest a wedding idea, lol!! We opted for a partial planning package in which the planner took over the last 4 weeks of planning. That was perfect timing because I was over doing anymore coordinating. Vanessa was super sweet, had great ideas to help save a few bucks and helped us coordinate the bumpy ride of a covid wedding. EVERY single vendor was on time and everything worked out beautifully and as planned. Vanessa was so attentive through out and took ALL of the stress off our shoulders. We can't thank her enough.Sent on 10/28/2020

Sweet Sweet Vanessa
When my wedding was over, saying goodbye to Vanessa felt like saying goodbye to a friend because we’d spent a year and a half of nonstop talking and planning! First of all, price-wise she’s a steal. She’s also the most honest wedding planner in the world—she’ll tell you honestly whether to spend money on something or if it’s unnecessary. All my vendors that I hired constantly told me, “Vanessa is the best Vanessa is the best, you’re in great hands”. She executed the vision for my wedding perfectly! I cried when I saw the reception room! We had some stressfulSent on 03/13/2020
Moments throughout the planning process, and Vanessa knew exactly the rright thing to say every single time. I love her and I’m going to miss her! Might just have to plan a vow renewal so I can hire her again!

My wedding day come together, no hitch no problems on schedule to a T!!!!! All because of Vanessa and her team!!!! I’m Hispanic and have a crazy family and I thought for sure my wedding was gunna be late, some terrible thing would happen, just Bc something always happens at weddings. Not mine, it was a perfect day all in all. Vanessa knows her vendors and is so professional. Best pick, highly recommended. She’s super friendly and being that this was a estimation wedding, having her knowledge of the area and what to pick from helped them most.Sent on 09/25/2020

Such an amazing experience!!!!
Vanessa is amazing, amazing!!! There are not enough words to express how happy we were with everything that she did for us! We chose the week-of package and could not have been happier. Every other vendor that we spoke to that would ask who our coordinator was when they heard we were working with Vanessa had nothing but wonderful things to say and was happy to be working with her! Vanessa was always quick to respond to emailed questions and was on top of everything! The day of the wedding she and her assistant were nothing but professional and did an amazing job with the set up of the reception decorations! It was everything that I wanted! You would be crazy not to have Vanessa and her team involved with your wedding!!!Sent on 02/22/2020

I honestly can't say enough about how great Vanessa is!

If you are on the fence about hiring a planner, I HIGHLY recommend you pick Vanessa - You will not be disappointed!Sent on 02/27/2020

Vanessa went above and beyond to create the most amazing reception for our November wedding. She assisted with every detail and seemed to know every vendor in town! She had the best suggestions to make our evening perfect! It was easy working with her and we loved the final product! We could not have been happier!Sent on 12/03/2019

Amazing Mackey House Wedding
Spectacular Saturday’s Wedding Coordinators are absolutely amazing. They were very helpful and easy to work with. Vanessa was very sweet and responsive through the whole process. Shannon was informative, sweet, and well organized on the big day. We felt very taken care of and I recommend them for any bride to be. Thanks ladies for making my day so special ❤️Sent on 11/12/2019

A game changer
Our reception vendor suggested we go with a day-of coordinator because we were having a destination wedding in Savannah. They were ABSOLUTELY right. Not only did the coordinator save us money by applying for the wedding permit herself (it's way cheaper for locals), but she SAVED the day at the wedding. We had a small outdoor ceremony and Shannon made sure it went perfectly! She wrangled my loud and distracted wedding party/family into place, found my missing engagement ring and literally did everything I would not have thought of. Even small weddings are hectic and I cannot imagine our wedding without her. Best money we spent!Sent on 10/27/2019

Amazing person, very helpful!
Vanessa was a life savor! Always quick with answers to questions and always made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it. We were last minute on a few things and she always pulled through giving us no problems ever! Very sweet, caring, easy to talk to girl! We couldn’t have made it through without her! We highly recommend Spectacular Saturdays for your wedding planning needs!Sent on 09/08/2019

Belated review, but Spectacular Saturdays handled our wedding planning perfectly. Vanessa and her assistant were very professional and took care of any problems, minor or major, that popped up during the planning process and the wedding itself. Definitely recommendSent on 07/28/2020

Amazing Day-Of Coordinator
Could not have asked for a better wedding planner. She was extremely helpful throughout the entire process, and took over everything on the day of. She made sure everything went exactly like I wanted it to, and there's absolutely no way we could have done it without her. My other vendors even complimented how well she coordinated the entire day. She handled schedule changes, a somewhat difficult caterer, and other small wedding day mishaps without missing a step. Would definitely recommend!Sent on 04/01/2019
Sarah · Married on 03/23/2019
Oh my goodness, how to even put it into words! I don't know how many time I told her, but Vanessa seriously saved my sanity over this process. She was there for me for every single question and freak out. She let me be my control freak self while still managing me and the entire process. When things came up last minute, she didn't even blink an eye. She was funny and sweet and just extremely comforting to have by my side. I had a million ideas in my head, but wanted to give her creative license because she knew my venue so well. The decorations (and entire day) that I put in her hands turned out better than my dreams. I have told everyone I know that hiring planner is the best wedding gift I gave myself, but I'm bummed for them because they aren't in Savannah to hire THIS planner. She's priced reasonably, extremely attentive, quick with responses, and has an eye for the smallest of details. If you want as much of a stress-free day as possible, I promise you will find it with Vanessa!Sent on 03/25/2019

The best choice ever!
Let me tell you, everyone thinks they don't need a planner/coordinator. I can tell you from experience on both ends, that you want and NEED to have this team apart of your day. Shannon was the only reason our wedding went so smoothly. I have some very scary thoughts as to what it would have been like if she was not there, haha. Everyone at the wedding was complimenting how professional and together she kept every detail of the entire day from before to after. I STRONGLY recommend that you hire these women to be apart of your planning and coordination. You will not be disappointed!Sent on 04/03/2019

Best Wedding Planner!!!
I can’t say enough good things about Vanessa! Being an out-of-town bride, I was worried about trying to coordinate all the details and vendors without being in Savannah. Vanessa took all that stress away and handled all these details beautifully. On the wedding day, she made sure everything ran smoothly and made it so easy for me to just focus on being the bride! I don’t think my wedding day would have gone as well without all of her and her assistant Shannon’s help!Sent on 02/19/2019

Vanessa and her Team are absolutely Spectacular! She was such a joy to work with - a constant support that always had answers to my questions or a guiding opinion so I didn't drive myself crazy! On top of her professionalism and can do attitude - she's just so nice to work with! I would absolutely recommend her hands down! She will take all the stress off your plate and handle everything perfect on the big day! Thank you, Vanessa!Sent on 02/05/2019

Absolutely love vanessa
Vanessa was absolutely amazing! From the moment my Mom and I met Vanessa, we felt comfortable with her, and knew we could trust her to execute the vision!! She was so knowledgeable in all aspects of wedding planning–from the vendors to the timeline to all my random lists of questions. I loved how she provided the BEST suggestions along the way. My day was perfect, and we had no stress on the wedding day thanks to all the work she was doing behind the scenes!! We can’t thank Vanessa enough for all her help! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the most marvelous wedding of all time!Sent on 12/10/2018
