What Clients are Saying…

“We’re so happy with how our wedding turned out! It was so beautiful, fun, and unique! Exactly how we imagined it. Your intern was very helpful and sweet. I can’t believe how fast the day passed by. I was warned about that but I tried to take in every moment of it. It was amazing! I still wish I could repeat some of it again. It just happened too fast! I’m so happy we got plenty of pictures and a video. Everyone we know has been talking about the wedding and some people are mad we didn’t invite them! We are still recovering from it all. You did a wonderful job!”

Cara took care of all

Cara took care of all the little wedding details that usually clog up everyone’s heads on the wedding day. As a result, we were all free to relax, enjoy, and savour the day, instead of running around worrying about things getting done. Having her with us on our wedding day gave us piece of mind that all tasks would get done the way WE wanted it done, at a reasonable price, and on time!
Can’t say enough good things about her. Hire her!

Save the Date was amazing

Save the Date was amazing to work with and work for! Cara and Judy helped make sure every detail of my wedding weekend was accounted for and truly made me feel like a guest at my own event. I was able to enjoy, dance the night away, and not worry if everything was going to stay on schedule. I also had the unique opportunity of working with the Save the Date team throughout college – every single team member is knowledgeable, creative and thoughtful in making sure each event runs smoothly!

Cara and her team are

Cara and her team are the utmost professionals. Soup to nuts are taken care of with Save the Date. They think of EVERY little thing. Life is less hectic and less stressful when you use Save the Date’s Services. You can be sure you end up with perfection! I applaud them!!!!

KR 2019

I would have lost my mind trying to do all this without Christine! She’s amazing – from getting the custom invites made, to coming up with the cute and unique kippot, recommending and coordinating with all the vendors, and of course her super positive can do attitude – especially with last minute changes and add ons.

 

MT 2019

It is a huge help having a partner, subject-matter expert and advocate in planning and executing events like these. We were fully satisfied with everything!

RAM 2019

Working with you and your team is such a joy, and the energy you bring to every event you plan is just outstanding. You make our lives so easy, and it would have been impossible to do this event without you!

CB

I am writing to you to say a big thank you for all your help with ---- Bar Mitzvah that took place on November 10th/ Your help was really invaluable to me- both your practical assistance with making decisions, selecting vendors, and handling everything you did leading up to and on the day of the party, and for all your support and encouragement all the way through.

MC 2019

We just wanted to say how happy we were with how everything turned out. I may be biased, but I think it was the best Bar Mitzvah I’ve been to. We had a fantastic time, and so did our guests. Thanks for keeping everything running smoothly and even dealing with our “bar mitzvah crasher”!

RS 2019

Christine helped plan and run both our Bat Mitzvah parties and is truly wonderful. Danielle was our day of person for the second party and did an amazing job transforming the pace and keeping everything on track despite some unexpected hitches! Thank you!! If I had any more kids I`d use you again!

VBF 2019

Cara helped us create a beautiful and fun event. Her creativity and attention to detail made for a magical evening that we all enjoyed. I absolutely will use her again!

MI 2019

Our event went off without a hitch, we received tremendous positive feedback from our guests, my son was blown away, and I felt like a success! All thanks to the support of the Save the Date team. It was the best investment I made! I will never do another big event without them!

MM 2019

Had a fantastic experience with Save The Date and Cara Weiss. She and her team did a great job on my son's Bar Mitzvah. They helped negotiate good deals with the venue and multiple vendors. Cara had great ideas and was very patient as I don't make decisions quickly. If I was planning another big party, I'd call Cara.

BG 2018

Cara runs an amazing organization that helps you celebrate your event with the peace of mind of knowing it is in her capable hands. Cara truly listens to what you want your event to be and then she goes about making your vision a reality. This is the third time I've used Cara and Save-the-Date to plan a Bar-Mitzvah celebration. In each instance, she and her team did an awesome job. I highly recommend Cara and I will be using her again in two years for my youngest son's Bar-Mitzvah.

LS 2018

I just wanted to tell you how wonderful it has been to work with Christine. She has been a delight to work with since the first day. She has always been so responsive and knowledgeable. She has also been very patient with me -especially since I was clueless about the whole process. I don't know what we would have done without her.

BB 2018

Whenever anyone asks me who can help with their planning, Save the Date will always be my answer.

MA 2018

Your professionalism was the key to the success of this event. Everything went very smoothly! Thanks again and I look forward working with you again.

We approached you for help last minute and you were not fazed in the least -- We so appreciated your taking us on as clients. The Bat Mitzvah preparations came together in one fell swoop, seamlessly, on the day of. We received so many emails and texts from friends and family after the Bat Mitzvah raving about Ariella, the décor, the party, and the food. Riva and I know that you saved us from drowning. We are forever thankful for your insights, ideas, organization, lead, coordination, etc.

SS 2018

Just a quick note to say thank you to you both. Everything went off without a hitch! Taylor and Amy were great! What a great team, helped keep everything running smoothly and helped us to have a great time!! So, nice that you also stopped by, Cara, to check things out.

JS 2018

I gave you an awesome review on the bar/bat mitzvah FB page that everyone in our network uses, and already, I've received a ton of questions about you guys (I have a big mouth). I recommend you highly to anyone, and look forward to using you for Ella's event, which is 11/16/19. SAVE THE DATE!

Christine Ash at Save the Date was outstanding!!!! We loved working with her. Christine took care of us every step of the way. She kept us organized, on time and we stayed within budget. She advocated to vendors for us to keep us in our budget during the planning and gave us ways to save! I can't wait to hire her for our next one

H & NJ

Everything was great, your staff was wonderful. They made it so Nick and I could enjoy the night!

SG

Cara, now that the cobwebs are dissipating, I wanted to take a moment to say a huge and heartfelt thank you to you and your team. You all did an exceptional job. From all the planning and guidance and then especially night of. You also kept Michelle sane :). Every time I looked up you or someone on your team were there making shit happen. You made what few problems there were go away, managing the pain in the ass marching band and then getting all the gifts and boxes to our room at the end of the night. I was really really impressed and we are beyond appreciative. I will definitely be recommending you to anyone.

MS

​Christine was absolutely wonderful to work with for our mitzvah. She had great suggestions that we were able to incorporate and managed to wrangle us back on track during our meetings. She was also invaluable during the mitzvah itself. We were a tough group to keep in line, but I know we probably never would have even moved off the appetizer hour had she not been keeping the night on track. She's a wonderful asset to your company and I'm sure you know you are lucky to have her.

On behalf of the St. Augustine's staff and congregation, I would like to say how pleased we were to be able to welcome Washington Hebrew Congregation into our new building for a Friday evening of Shabbat services, study, good food and community together here in SW DC!! I look forward to our partnership going forward.

MA

Your professionalism was the key to the success of this event. Everything went very smoothly! Thanks again and I look forward working with you again

Thank you for your note; it was wonderful to work with you as well! I truly appreciated all of your help and insight with that event. We are all excited to work with you again!

RC

Danielle was amazing!!!! Thank you!

LS

Christine knows how to use the right amount of force when necessary, with a spark of personality that makes people want to comply. We are all grateful that we could forget the details and enjoy being guests at the wedding! We will gladly sing her praises wherever we can.

LG

Thanks for everything. We loved working with Save the Date! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving,

We did receive the adorable postcard and also liked the cute bag that Christine used to send home all of Rachel's cards at the end of the night. Super fun touches. Christine and team did a terrific job the evening of the event. We felt so well taken care of and truly enjoyed every minute of the party with no worries.

BB

Whenever anyone asks me who can help with their planning, Save the Date will always be my answer.

Save the Date assisted with my daughter's bat mitzvah last summer. I initially wasn't sure whether I needed the help, but am glad I went for it. Christine and her assistant made it possible for me to enjoy the party without wondering for one minute what was happening on the other side of the room. And don't assume the vendors you've already found will work out....when my caterer bailed with three months to spare, which also meant the venue was lost, Cara responded to my anguished email at 3 am!

2018

Save the Date has produced 2 B'nai Mitzvahs and 2 Weddings for my family! Clearly, we are big fans of Cara's! She and her team are calm, organized, easy to work with.... and fun! They are professional, they don't micromanage... And their "take charge" ability allows you to relax and enjoy your celebration!

When it comes to good.... no... great decisions we made in putting together our wedding and reception, Cara Weiss of Save the Date is right at the top of our list. We contacted Cara to help us select, word and order our invitations which our guests loved. She then helped us organize the event, order customize small gifts, and provided "day-of" support. Much of the credit for such a smooth event can be credited to her years of experience and great advice. Her gentle, but take charge "day-of" support cannot be matched 2018

2018

We had the most amazing mitzvah this weekend, thanks to Christine and Cara. Christine took great care in ensuring that our vision was executed without breaking our budget. Everything was perfect and stress-free. I also feel like we SAVED money by using a party planner to guide us through some tricky décor issues at our venue. You will not regret using Save the Date for your party planning. They are top notch and wonderful to work with.

2017

Cara Weiss and her team (Francesca and Jennifer) are amazing!!!!!!!!!!! They did a terrific job in helping in the final month of planning for my son's bar mitzvah party on March 12th for the design and décor and the party flow and timing and structure, and rentals, etc. and then they were in charge the day of so I can show up like a guest and enjoy the party like a guest. My caterer was not so good (not organized or on the ball) and the Save the Date team "saved the day" truly. I think they are worth every penny and more.

2017

I have known and worked with Cara Weiss for over 10 years. Cara is a terrific party planner; she is creative, works well with the clients, is very respectful of the clients' needs, calm and courteous through hectic planning times, and is always on top of things. My clients always comment on how easy it was working with Cara and how she came up with ideas they didn't even think of and put their vision into a reality (life-size cut-outs, backgrounds, candy carts, room decor, lighting, etc.).

2017

As a photographer, I am always amazed at the amount of detail and personal touch Cara adds to every event: no event is ever the same, be it a wedding or a Bar/ Bat Mitzvah, and I have seen quite a few though the years.

JW

Cara's team is always on their A-game; they run a great party. Cara's assistant, Christine, who goes to all the jobs with Cara is a pleasure to work with, as well. I recommend Cara of Save the Date to all of my clients.

2016

We hired Christine Ash from Save the Date to be our "day of coordinator" for our daughter's wedding celebration last weekend in Rockville. To say that Christine and her assistant "saved the day" is an understatement! She completely set up our event space perfectly per my instructions and then gathered together and delivered our extras to our hotel (a couple of blocks away) after the event was over. During the event, she seemed to appear whenever someone needed something, even bringing us our preferred drink throughout the night. Several of our guests mentioned to me what a great job she was doing and how lucky we were to have her!

EW 2/2018

Thanks for your note, Cara. Emma enjoyed the party very much. Jennifer and Nicole were professional and responsive. -LP & AP 2018
Hey! You beat me to it! I will 100% fill out everything below with RAVING reviews.
____ and I could not have been any happier or pleased with Saturday night and all of our work with you. As I said in my note, you treated us the entire time as if we were your only clients. You always quickly responded to my emails and knew everything we had talked about. You were professional and poised the entire time, especially on Saturday night! We are so lucky to have found you and I have been so happy to have had you at my side for the entire process. If you ever need a referral, please send them my way! You will only get glowing reviews.
I will call you as soon as I get Jake's date!!!!! It has been a pleasure to work with you!
Thank you again!

BB 2018

Jeff and I want to thank you for an amazing event on Saturday! We all had a blast and have heard great feedback from our adult and kid guests alike. We really appreciate all of your help in giving Naomi the kind of celebration she deserved for all of her hard work. We also appreciate all that you did to ensure that we didn't miss a thing during the party - the videos of her friends presentations, father/daughter dance, etc. were really great!

LP 2018

For those Calgon moments, you were there. That made all the difference in the world and I can't thank you enough for it.
I appreciate that you connected me with vendors and took the time to seek the ones who best fit our lifestyle and budget. I only wish I discovered you sooner, but better late than never. The words seem ever so slight, but the meaning behind my intention is tremendous.​ On behalf of Brooke and Michal, along with both families, we thank you all so very much.

DK 2018

I am so sorry I have been out of touch! I just was so tired and so overwhelmed after the party and so very very behind on the rest of my life that I could give you a list 50 feet long of what I've been catching up on (besides sleep). But I think of you all fondly almost every day.
I just posted this on Yelp:

Cara is a terrific party planner!
I hope you are well and not too busy but busy enough. if I can be of service or provide a reference it would be my great pleasure.

JF

​Just a quick thank you for everything on Saturday.
The event was a huge success and Alec was very happy. He is bright eyed and thrilled with how the party went and his friends had a great time.

SN

Whether it was entertainment, photography, decor, food, service, overall planning and execution, you helped to make it a wonderful weekend celebrating Lilly and Joey . Aside from making everything run like a machine you gave us the opportunity to make such lasting memories with friends and family! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!!

TF

Jay and I wanted to send you a HUGE THANK YOU for Saturday night. We know we were a handful leading up to the event and we are certain we were a handful that evening – but you kept everything right on track and we would not have had as organized a party without you. (I'm pretty certain the appetizer hour would have never ended if you hadn't herded us into the room!) You and Taylor were simply amazing.

Thank you for your kind words! I love working with you; it is insane how organized and easy to work with you are! I will absolutely refer groups to you at every chance!!

We have great chemistry and it shows with the execution of our events. You actually make my job a lot easier, 9 times out of 10 I am doing both on most Weddings an Mitzvah's. It takes a load off of me, I can assure you that..

SGLEN

Thank you for your advice on handling the kids better. We have hundreds of middle schoolers here each year and there is never an issue. Those groups usually have chaperones of their own, that is probably why.

SF

I have no words enough to thank you for making Zachary's evening perfect. That is the only way I can describe Saturday night. It was flawless!!! When the sun started peeking through around 3 pm, I knew it would be all right. Every person at that party had a wonderful evening thanks to you. You helped orchestrate a memorable evening for a great kid. You truly went above and beyond to make it all happen. I also had a fabulous evening. I was a relaxed guest at my own party. I ate, I danced, I drank, I spent time with my friends and family and truly felt the love!! We knew Adam would speak and I am so glad we had a plan in place ahead of time. We really anticipated everything.
My guests all commented on how attentive you and Aaron were. There was a spill, you guys were there to make sure it was cleaned up. I'm sure there were other issues I didn't know about that you took care of because that is what you do.
I am still riding the wave from this weekend and hope to hang on to it a little longer… So now I have 2 kids down and 1 to go…No date yet, but I'll find you when I get it!! I'm also so glad Cara could swing by and see the site. It really looked amazing. I knew it would. I truly did.I'm still catching up on sleep. Hope you got to rest. The wheels keep moving.
I'll share everything with you when it starts to arrive…

DB

I would strongly recommend Save the Date! Christine was one of the most proficient if not the most proficient and detail oriented wedding planners I've ever worked with as I too am a wedding vendor (officant). If every wedding I worked had Save the Date, life would be grand! There is no doubt, if you want someone that can take all the worries and stress away from your day SAVE THE DATE and call them today. You won't be sorry!

2017

Cara Jill Weiss and Christine Ash and their staff at SAVE THE DATE, were just wonderful and attentive and helped us pull together terrific event that we and our guests truly enjoyed. They thought of every detail and helped us to stay organized. I have zero reservations and would be eager to use them again.

Thank you for helping make the graduation party be a success! It's amazing how much more time I had with my guests because of your assistance.

We will certainly keep you in mind for future events!

MF & JF

Our wedding was absolutely amazing and so much of it was because of your advice and guidance.

To let you know - Christine was absolutely wonderful to work with for our mitzvah. She had great suggestions that we were able to incorporate and managed to wrangle us back on track during our meetings. She was also invaluable during the mitzvah itself. We were a tough group to keep in line, but I know we probably never would have even moved off the appetizer hour had she not been keeping the night on track. She's a wonderful asset to your company and I'm sure you know you are lucky to have her! We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a party planner in the future.
