Cacky and Mary Givens-thank you Cacky for bringing PERFECTION to the day!

Katherine Taggart Crutchfield


As I think about the amazing wedding my daughter and her new husband experienced just three weeks ago at Montage Palmetto Bluff- in the midst of the challenges we face as a world with Co-Vid 19 – one word comes to mind – PERFECTION! And frankly, that begins with the blessings we experienced through Cacky! Initially, I didn’t think we would need someone to help us with dressing. Wow – I was wrong about that. Cacky brought an ease and peace to every detail on wedding day – details that I was confident were addressed, but somehow, things just happen during weddings. She was there every time we needed another bridesmaid dress steamed, a button sewn for a groomsman, pants buttons for the father of the bride fixed following an incorrect alteration, my dress ironed and not steamed, and most importantly, she was able to perfectly repair the bride’s veil that had been torn in two places during transport.
PERFECTION achieved with her skill, her smile, her easy demeanor, and her elegance. Peace during those moments of crisis, and laughter and joy just being with Cacky. So grateful to have had her grace our day and bless us with her presence. I can’t wait to have her with us again for more weddings in our family. Thank you, Cacky. You are awesome!

Cacky is worth her weight in gold!

I cannot say enough good things about Cacky! From steaming the bridesmaids dresses to making sure that even the groom looked 100%, she does it all! Not only did Cacky help me get dressed for my first look with my dad at the hotel, she accompanied me to my venue to help me get ready for my first look with the groom. She transported my dress and veil to the venue for me, and made sure every detail was perfect. Cacky was with me every step of the way, traveling all over my outdoor venue with me to help with pre- ceremony photos with my groom and bridal party. Cacky always made sure my dress and veil were fluffed and beautifully positioned for the photographers. Even when I had a makeup emergency in the Charleston humidity, she was ready to help with touchups. My wedding day went by flawlessly, and much of that is owed to Cacky! My mom and I were able to enjoy my wedding day stress free without having to even think about my dress or putting in my veil. As a bride, you want to be able to enjoy those special moments with your mom instead of worrying over the dress, and Cacky allowed us to enjoy the moment. As my groom said, she truly is the keeper of the dress!
I truly did not even realize how much I needed this service until the wedding day, and I am so happy she was there. Cacky has such a sweet and calming presence, and I will be forever grateful to her.
If you are getting married in Charleston, Cacky is MUST for your wedding day!

She made getting ready stress-free!

I was so nervous to have a destination wedding so it was really important that we had someone the day of to help with steaming, emergency alterations, and helping me get into my complicated but very beautiful wedding gown. In the morning I was feeling a little stressed and Cacky was so amazing that she gave me the BEST shoulder massage! She was able to get rid of my stress headache and really helped me feel at ease. She was very careful with our dresses, my bridesmaid robes, and my dress and veil. She also steamed the ribbons that we used to “Tie the Knot”. I couldn’t have made it through the morning without her and we are all very thankful that she was there! If you’re getting married in Charleston I HIGHLY recommend hiring her and having her spend the morning with you!! She is incredibly sweet, patient, calm, and has such bright energy about her!!

You NEED her

A “bridal assistant” or “bride aid” sounds like a luxury (did to me anyway) but I can assure you she is a necessity! I didn’t know we needed her until we had her! I didn’t realize the extent of her services! She wears many hats in addition to her “tool belt”. Her tool belt is full of magic acts-she can sew a hem or lace or a bead, pin anything…etc. she even tied the bow ties for the groomsmen.
She was a calming force for my daughter, the bride, and helped her with every aspect of dressing (pressed her very wrinkled dress) , rearranged her attire even helped her pose for her pictures – things that nobody else thinks about doing!!
She is worth her weight in gold …she doesn’t weigh much but she’s worth a lot! Oh she’s also calm, fun and personable!! We formed a bond with her in just a few hours and were sad to say goodbye!
