    Words can not even begin to describe how AWESOME Denean's Party by Design is!!! I originally was one of those brides who thought I could do it all myself until I realized I COULDNT! In my search for a decorator and Day of Coordinator I came across Denean's Party By Design. From that first phone call, that first email I was already sold! The professionalism and courtesy that she showed let me know I was on the right path. After our first meeting I quickly ran home and told my fiancé this is the one! Pam, I could tell you thank you a million times and that still wouldn't be enough! Between the décor, the rehearsal, the actual wedding day and all the calls and emails in between you never skipped a beat and always put my mind at ease! I could not have asked for a better group! I have already sung your praises to several friends and co workers to use your services! Some people are in wedding planning for the money but this group I can truly say does it from the heart! I am forever grateful, my wedding was AMAZING thanks to you!! Its been almost a month and everyone still raves about how beautiful and organized it was. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! With Love, The Wilks

    By some divine intervention, my husband and I stumbled upon Denean's Party By Design at a time when we were having a number of problems with our venue. Denean and her team were truly God-sends! Denean is thorough, detail-oriented, understanding, and so kind. She was so pleasant to deal with throughout the process. My husband and I had an inter-faith (Jewish and Catholic wedding) - Denean took the time to learn all the traditions and customs to make sure everyone's customs were honored. Denean also went above and beyond to ensure that our venue accommodated an entirely gluten free wedding. Any request that I made - no matter how obscure or small - Denean exceeded. On the day of the wedding, Denean and her team kept everyone on track, calm, and organized. Denean set up the venue beautifully, taking care of every last detail down to the placecards and photo arrangements. Additionally, she made sure we had zero issues with the food. The day ran so smoothly. My husband and I had to do nothing but enjoy the day. Hiring Denean and her team was the best decision we made, period!

    We were at a loss when it came to making a beautiful wedding come to life without going into debt. Denean's Party by Design made our dream come true without breaking the bank! They were with us every step of the way while picking vendors and the venue. Very personable and professional. I would recommend them for all of your event planning needs.

    What a GREAT team!! My husband and I decided to make the day of our wedding less stressful, so we decided we should hire a day of coordinator.... And I must say, it was completely worth it. Denean and Pam went above and beyond with setting up all of our decor and making our day go as smooth as possible. I highly recommend this company!! Especially to any brides and grooms searching for an affordable way to make the day of your wedding completely about you and your special person. Thank you Denean's Party by Design.

    I truly enjoyed my experience with Denean's Party by Design. They are not only very good at what they do, but committed to providing the best service possible. From day one they went above and beyond to help me achieve the vision I wanted for my wedding. It was simply beautiful! Not only that, they went the extra mile when they didn't have to, helping me look for another venue when my initial site had to be changed. I would surely use their services again!

    Everything turned out perfect, more than I could have imagined. Pam was professional and had everything timed and planned out to a tee. They made it comfortable for us and we were able to sit back, relax, and enjoy everything. They turned a blank room into my dream wedding.

    Very professional is how I can describe Denean's Party by Design staff. My retirement party was beautifully decorated beyond my expectations. I wanted a lounge/nightclub theme with simple, yet sophisticated centerpieces & DPBD did not disappoint. Also, the food/bar area was decorated beyond my expectations as well. I was pleasantly surprised of how everything was exactly how I wanted it to be. Thanks Denean & Pam for all you did for me. - XOXO

    Denean and her team were amazing! In the meetings leading up to the wedding, Denean was incredibly thorough and thought of everything. She assisted with the rehearsal, and was so helpful! Day of, she and her team made sure everything ran smoothly and made sure we finished on time. I absolutely recommend this team!!

    Denean and her team were so helpful, we could't be happier with their services! Even though we hired Denean for the day-of coordination, she helped us map out the whole process. Five months before the wedding she sent us a few questionnaires that helped me think of what needs to be planned, down to the little details. We had an in-person meeting in the beginning of the process and then another meeting the week before the wedding to confirm every details, and she helped with our rehearsal. She is so easy to work with, and responds very quickly to any question I had. On the day of, I was able to relax and enjoy our special day! Denean and her team set up the decorations for the ceremony and the reception, as well as putting together the flower centerpieces. In the end, we had an amazing wedding where everyone, us especially, had a blast! I couldn't imagine pulling that of without Denean and her team, and highly recommend their services.

    Simply Amazing Team and Services!!!
    My wedding was a successful thanks to Denean's Party By Design!!!! I booked DPBD for Décor and Day of Coordinators services. The entire staff went above and beyond to make my day very special. I had no idea that my wedding could look like a million dollar wedding with my budget. The team is very honest and up front about what they can do to achieve the look you want within your budget. When I saw the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception décor, I cried. Tears of joy. They made my vision come to life. I had a very tight budget and you couldn't tell at all. Ever little detail was taking care of. I'm still amazed at how someone can take your vision in words and make it come to life. now about the Day od coordination. I'll start by saying I'm a worrier and stress over ever little detail day to day so you can imagine how I might be on my wedding day (as most brides would be) LOL. With Denean and her staff you don't have ANYTHING to worry about AT ALL!!! Everything went smoothly and seamless!! On the most important day of my life I was actually able to sit back and take it all in. No stress, no worrying.. nothing!! I HIGHLY recommend DPBD. They made my day so special and I cant thank them enough. Everybody that attending the wedding was asking me who designed the reception, I know yall broke the bank with this wedding, etc.. I just smiled and said I give all the credit to DPBD and her team. The most sweetest, professional and most loving crew I've ever met. So Brides.. if your on a tight budget or balling , DPBD can make it happen!! You wont be disappointed.

    Denean's Party by Design team went above and beyond on my day. I am so happy that I picked a professional team with excellent service. The day before my wedding we had to change everything around and Pam and her team were right there helping me with everything. The day of the wedding they made everything run with ease. If your looking for a wonderful team to make your day perfect this is the team. I can not thank these ladies enough for making our day perfect and wonderful. Pam even sent us a welcome back email once we returned from our honeymoon to check on us...we felt so special. Thank you again and God bless you.

    Denean was a lifesaver as our day-of coordinator!!! I really could not have done it without her. I don't think I'll ever really know how many little things she had work out the morning of because from MY point of view, everything was PERFECT! She exceeded my expectations in executing the decor vision I had in my mind. I am so thankful for her and her team!

    A+ service!
    I chose Denean's Party by Design to help with "day of" coordination for my wedding in Baltimore. Hands down, best decision I have ever made in my life. Denean and Teresa were extremely professional and thorough to make sure every detail of my special day was absolutely the way I wanted it. Since it was "day of," I did a majority of the legwork with decor and planning, but the set-up and presentation was even better than I ever imagined. Having these ladies present at the wedding ensured that the timeline moved along smoothly, all of my concerns were addressed immediately, and just overall provided a phenomenal experience. My guests went out of their way to note how extremely well-run the event was, and how friendly and personable the team was. You can tell they really love what they do. One of the most memorable moments that stood out to me was when my (slightly clumsy) husband stepped on the back of my dress and ripped the bustle off. Within 5 minutes and without missing a beat, Denean had expertly secured my dress with a large safety pin (you couldn't tell!) and I was back out on the dance floor. Personal touches like that are why I would absolutely recommend this team and would use them without hesitation for any future party/event planning needs!

    My husband and I hired Denean's Party by Design to provide decor for our cocktail hour and reception. Not only did they exceed all expectations, but they left us all with a very sophisticated memory. We are very pleased to share that our experience working with all of the members of Denean's Party by Design has been nothing but professional and fun. I always looked forward to our meetings to hear their great ideas and inexpensive ways to get the job done without losing an ounce of class. What I loved the most was their eagerness to stick to our budget, while still guaranteeing us nothing less than excellent quality. I highly recommend this outstanding group of creators for any event!

    Planning my 1st daughter, 1st birthday party. Candice and Denean was extremely professional from the very first encounter. I am known to have anxiety and they made sure everything I wanted was executed. They even did extra just to make sure I was comfortable. I will be using them to plan my next events. Worth every penny to hire these PROS to do their craft!

    I hired Denean and her team to do my decor and eventually day of wedding coordination. I would say, from day one i was impressed with her work ethic. I could tell she loved what she does and basically worked with me and my budget. She definitely delivered way beyond my expectation. I really did not feel stressed out because her team ( Teresa, Candice and Denean herself and am sure others that i did not meet) got everything covered. I would recommend them anytime. I was thrilled at the decor and my guests have been calling to rave about the hall and how everything went. Thanks Denean's Party by design

    My family and I truly enjoyed working with Denean's Party By Design! Denean and her team are extremely passionate about designing and their passion is what makes them so great because they love what they do. They take your simple visions and turn them into elegant and beautiful party themes. Denean and her team answered all my emails in a timely fashion, they were extremely helpful when our caterer fell through at the last minute and helped us with plates, utensils, and linens. I honestly can't say enough to describe how pleased and happy I am that I had the opportunity to work with Denean's Party By Design, and I highly recommend them and look forward to working with them again one day in the future.

    First let me say I am a very, very picky person and I manage everything I do; yes I have control issues. This is the first time I gave full control to anyone related to an event I was having. My first meeting with Denean I was sold and gave up full control for the 60th Birthday celebration. When I walked into the room I was blown away with what was done with my tight budget, she went beyond my wildest exceptions. Everyone was that was there complimented me on how beautiful the room was. I am now a walking advertisement for Denean's Party Design. The staff was amazing, everyone I came in contact with Candice and Denean you have a customer for life. Thank you so much!!!

    Deneans Party by Design made my Red and White Christmas Holiday Dinner Party room look absolutely beautiful, breathtaking, and truly a fantasy. The whole experience working with Denean was great. She listened to my concept and brought it to life. Two weeks post party and my guests are still raving about how beautiful the room looked. Her team decorated the room and took the room down. I will certainly use her company again for next year's holiday party.

    I hired Denean's Party by Design as my day-of coordinator for the ceremony (I had on-site coordinators for the reception site). This meant they would speak with the necessary vendors, do minor setup and takedown, come to the rehearsal, assist with the timing of the music, and guide us down the aisle. Overall, I am so glad that I decided to hire a day-of-coordinator and pleased with the service I received from Denean and her team. She was also very affordable!! We did not have a musician, but opted to use a CD player in the back of the chapel instead. This would be complicated to arrange ourselves, and was a major area of concern. I downloaded all of the music and burned the Cds, then they timed the playing of the pre-ceremony, processional, and post-ceremony music and it was perfectly done, as was the timing of my bridal party and making sure everything was in place. An area of improvement: Part of my agreement was that they would assist in breakdown, which they absolutely did, but it was my understanding that they would help carry and load these items into my parents car. Instead, they asked me if I needed anything else, but I was too busy and focused on other things to know. I wished they had asked my mom instead. So naturally, they left without helping my parents, who had to carry all of the flowers and other items, which were being transported to the reception, to their car. This is only a minor disappointment and I would recommend this vendor to future brides.

    Thanks so much for this review Dalenna, and thank you for the suggestion. Our client's satisfaction is absolutely our number one concern. We are glad that you were satisfied with our services. We did ask your parents if they needed any further assistance from us. We understand that they too were caught up in the excitement of things. Your feedback is a big time we will ensure that our staff does a double, and even triple check. Congratulations once again!
