Here is what some of our past clients have said about our services.
“Gloria would be a wedding planner that I would recommend to any one! She worked tirelessly even after the event to make sure our special day was the most special it could be. We loved working with her. I have no idea how many hurtles she had to jump to make this day happened, because she would never say! That was the best sign of a wedding planner. Plus her vision of how to make the day special showed an artist eye! I call her the David Tutera of Whidbey Island.”
“Whidbey Party Girls! is simply the best. Gloria helped make our day memorable in the most amazing ways. We actually got to enjoy our own party. Every detail was handled and she planned the coolest surprises. Our guests felt very very welcomed and have not stopped complimenting us for having a ceremony and reception for the record books!
“Wow! Where to start? Gloria went above and beyond and provided us unparalled service. She is efficient, concise, quick to respond, and very creative. She was tremendously helpful during a very stressful time in our lives, and extremely flexible in doing what needed to be done in order to create an incredible wedding day for us as well as our families and friends. We ran into a few significant “snags” with a couple of vendors at the last minute on the day of the wedding. Gloria was on it and handled the issues seamlessly and creatively. She made sure all of our guests were well attended to until the issues were resolved. Gloria helped us create an ambiance for the wedding that suited our tastes and personalities perfectly. It was a very special, intimate and lovely evening. Everyone had a wonderful time. Without Gloria’s talents, skills and invaluable contacts, we would not have had the beautiful day that we did. My husband and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. If you plan on getting married on Whidbey Island, go no further. Hire Gloria, you’ll be so glad you did!”
“If marrying my husband is the best decision I have ever made, hiring Gloria of Whidbey Party Girls! to be our day-of coordinator is a close second. Two weeks before our wedding, we realized we had serious issues with the day-of person we had hired over a year prior, who had become non-responsive and gone back on parts of our agreement. Enter: Gloria. I gave Whidbey Party Girls! a call to see if there was an assistant who might be available for our wedding date. Gloria moved some things around to take on our wedding, and we are so grateful that she did. From the first moment I talked with her on the phone, she was writing down everything I said, asking critical questions about things we hadn’t even thought about yet, and working on overdrive to find us wedding items we still needed (straw bales…). She did SO much more than just day-of: she was constantly in contact with us by email/text, did vendor confirmations the week of the wedding, went to our venue when the rental company was setting up tents, tables, and chairs, and as my husband puts it, “saved our asses” on many things. She handled the rehearsal and the entire wedding day from start to finish, and even got someone to come the next day to pick up all our garbage/recycling and dispose of it for a very low price – such a great help! Gloria was incredibly professional the whole time. When she and my hubs-to-be realized the morning of the wedding that two cases of wine had mysteriously disappeared, she managed to replace it lightning fast – and without me ever even knowing about the problem. We had tons of family and friends helping us with setup and tear down, but let me tell you, you need Gloria to manage everything, otherwise it will be a nightmare. We cannot recommend Gloria enough; in fact, my only regret in hiring her is that I didn’t do it earlier. If you are planning a wedding on Whidbey (or anywhere, for that matter), call Gloria now…really, now. Before you do anything else. Thanks for everything, Gloria!”
“Everything ran so smoothly and I wasn’t in the kitchen on and off all night….that some of the guests wanted to know who the caterers were. They believed that your team worked together all the time. I was a guest at my own party. I know Whidbey Party Girls! does so much more than I utilize…but I really appreciate the service you offer with event staffing.
“We can not find enough thank you’s in the universe to express our gratitude! Regan and Boyd’s wedding was magical, beautiful and full of love. Thank you for being such a big part of making it happen.”
- Laurel and Pat
“I can’t thank you enough for our perfect day and perfect weekend. Everything fell into place like clockwork. Rob is still talking about how perfect it was, and how it was exactly right for his comfort level. And that’s high praise!!!! He even loved the cake – and he hates cake! JW Desserts cake was amazing. We both credit our perfect wedding to you – you made everything right and made everything work and made everybody happy. Everyone had a great time. We love the photos too – you did a wonderful job. Thank you sooooo much for making our day a perfect one – it couldn’t have been better. I’m not sure how you did it, but you even made the weather cooperate. It was so lovely – the day of my dreams. And the dinner……..WOW! And in you, I feel I’ve met a friend for life. ”
- Dana and Rob

“What a delight you are. You made me feel special.”
“Gloria handled our wedding reception planning from beginning to end with the care and concern of a friend and the attention to detail of a professional wedding planner. As a bride-to-be, I did not worry once about any of the details that I had entrusted Gloria with; she was awesome! A year later, we still talk about what a great party we had and how we wouldn’t have done anything different. If you want to do your party right, you must call Gloria!”
- Erin and Darin
“I have used Whidbey Party Girls! from the beginning. I give Gloria my budget and let her do what she does best. The end result, no two parties have ever been the same; the food is always fantastic and the piece of mind is priceless!”
