  Dear Karen, Thank you so much for making our wedding so perfect! It sounds cheesy, but we never thought it would turn into such a dream wedding. It was absolutely fantastic, from the start you have done a tremendous job! We\’re so happy we found you. Although we couldn\’t be in Hermanus to plan the wedding, via emails we discussed every detail and had no stress whatsoever. On the wedding day itself, we didn\’t have to worry about anything.

All the best, Anne & Immo – Munich

Dear Karen, We are back from honeymoon and we just wanted to take the time to thank you for the amazing job you did at our wedding. It was exactly the look and feel we  envisioned. Our guests were raving about the food, wine and décor etc. The day was perfect. We are  grateful for the fact that we had no stress and that everything small or big was taken care of. You nailed it ! Thanks again! Gaynor & Pieter- Cape Town   Dear Karen,

Not just via email, but here is a small thank you note for the amazing job you did at our wedding, for your WAH!!  We had the most amazing day – thanks to you.  Thanks for your patience, love to detail and understanding everything we imagined and making it real!  All the best, Steffi & Rod, Germany/UK   Dear Karen I’d like to express my gratitude in supporting our event at the Arabella Hotel and Spa over the weekend.  Your recommendations and ideas were always well received.  You didn’t flinch when faced with a dilemma and just soldiered on. You are all in, no job is beneath you or too much – a true worker bee! You also displayed a wonderful balance between creativity and an analytical approach. I wish you every success! Heidi, Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr   Dearest Karen We cannot begin to express how absolutely thrilled we were with every aspect  of our wedding!! You gave us the most memorable day of our lives….”Best Days” is certainly very appropriate. You were organised, enthusiastic and willing from the very start of all the planning. We appreciated your advice and expert opinion for so many of the choices and decisions we had to make. Nothing was too much trouble, and every detail was attended to so efficiently, and followed up with such perfection to detail and of a high standard. And to cap it all….you supported all the services and ourselves to the very end of the evening….and then bounced back early on Sunday to do more hard labour!! It is , no wonder you run a very successful service, never risking your reputation of excellence. Take care and see you when you have a moment Thank you again. With love Jane and Randal – Fresnaye   Hi Karen, Phew! Are we ever counting our blessings?! I think if I could have scripted the perfect wedding for SnS it would have been just like the one we had. The wind was a curved ball, but so minor relative to what could have been, it scarcely mattered! You took the brunt of that, I think. And we counted our blessings for you … you are truly amazing and you made such a huge difference to our lives. We just cant believe how much you invested in “our” wedding, most particularly over the wedding weekend, but also over the whole year preceding the special day!  Thank you …  from the bottom of my heart.   With love and huge gratitude, Liz – Timbavati   Hello there Karen, Just to let you know, you scored an 11/10 for your services delivered in the preparation and excecution of our wedding, especially with us being abroad and only meeting you just before our wedding day.  You were well above and beyond what we expected,  and will certainly be recommending you to all our friends! Thanks again for all that you did to help make our day so incredible! Cheers, Mike and Nats, France / London Seriously, Karen, Jo and I could not be happier with your service.  It was so nice to have someone operate at the level you operate at – which for me is the norm in Europe and not here so for me, it was a double blessing!  You are fun, have great ideas, got my vision, made great suggestions, organised, took the stress away from the event.  I am very happy to provide you a reference should you require one. We really enjoyed having you around!  You are always welcome here! Judy and Jo, London and SA   A special message… Have to shine a few (mainly) local marbles this week because they shone for us over the weekend when our darling daughter Sam married her Mike! Wedding Planner Karen from Best Days gave us tip top guidance and support beyond any level of expectation – she was up all night and watched the sunrise over the dam at 5 am the next morning! Been getting rave reviews! Karen, thank you so much for making us all look so good (and me so clever and capable!!) You rocked our party, we are really so grateful to you for thinking of absolutely everything and ensuring it went off so smoothly! xxxxx   You should feel very very proud of yourself for the beautiful wedding you gave Sam and Mike.  I honestly felt as though i was in a movie!!!!  It was incredible from start to finish!!!  The tractor ride to the Milkwood forest and then the ceremony with the of spread of delicious cheeses etc!!!  Then the walk back to the Marquee with the Kaapse Kloppers leading the way and the flower girls all dancing behind with the hoolahoops!!!!  Still amazed at Sam dancing with the hoolahoops late in the evening with such graciousness and beauty.  Tried my hand at it but gave up after awhile.  You thought of everything from the popcorn machine to the  ice-cream machine!!!  The food was outstanding and it just never stopped arriving!!!  Still trying to shed the kilos!!!  Well done , you did an incredible job in organising the beautiful wedding it was!!  Cant thank you enough and praise you enough for a wonderful funfilled and beautiful evening!!   Dear Karen, After discussion with Liz, we felt that you deserved extra compensation for the incredible extra effort that you put in to make Shane’s wedding such a success and a very happy occasion. We are very grateful for all that you did and you certainly went more than the ‘extra mile’ and you put in a huge amount of extra hours and effort. Thank you so much. Mark Hodges   Hi Karen.   Thank you for all your incredible hard work, it was so very much appreciated. I remember taking a moment and thinking “stuff is happening, getting cleaned, served, thrown away etc and I have nothing to do with it”! It was so great!!   Still on a complete high and looking forward to our next adventure in the bush. Thanks so much! Shane and Shaun- Gauteng     Hi Karen, We had the most amazing Wedding Day. You managed to really create the mood I imagined at the wedding, everything fitted together perfectly and went really smooth.  I am still impressed that you managed to understand what we wanted so well from a couple of pinterest pictures and emails. I could not have wanted it to be better or different! And it was so nice to have someone that took care of everything so we didn’t have to worry at all during the day. Everyone really enjoyed the food, a big thanks to the caterer! Also I can recommend the photographer if anyone of your other clients is asking. I thought he was very professional, not in our faces and the pictures are beautiful.   All in all it was a perfect day! And even the weather made it more interesting!   Thanks and all the best, Steffi & Rod – Germany Hi Karen, I wanted to thank you very much for your services – you have made our wedding day very special. I’m very happy that I you took care of our decor – it looked wonderful and looked even better than I imagined. Guests are still paying compliments- they loved the whole wedding and the simplicity of the decor. and the succulents in the bouquet:) I can recommend you services to anyone as you were very reliable and also you quickly recognized what my style is. Thank you very much. Magdalena and Jan (Poland vs SA)     Hi Karen Had an amazing holiday and wedding but always good to be back home I was extremely happy with the service you provided and grateful that you could accommodate the last minute requests and running around.   It gave me great piece of mind knowing that we were in competent hands and did not need to worry.   Happy to provide any future references if needed. Kind Regards Tessa Group Marketing Standard Bank   Hi Karen   The only feedback I can give is to say that you were absolutely wonderful! WONDERFUL WONDERFUL WONDERFUL!

Groete Elsa – Paternoster   Dear Karen, We just want to thank you for all you work and arrangements you have made for our wedding.  We appreciate everything you have done to make the day a success.  Because of you everything was in place and on time.   Regards Dawie and Christine  Hey Karen Everything went extremely well and worked out for the best. Actually I was most impressed with the fact that you came to deliver the flowers and picked up the cards straight from our house. It’s also good that you told us repeatedly from the beginning that even tho it’s good to have a plan in place, rather use it as a guideline instead of a definite- it made everything much easier on our special day with your calm approach.   Thank you again for everything. Lawrence and Wandi, New York City Hi Karen, Once again thanks for all you help, we had an amazing wedding. We included a little extra to say thanks.
