Cacky Saves The Day…AGAIN!!!
I cannot say enough good words about Cacky!!! She is more than amazing. Our relationship started 5 years ago when I had my destination wedding in Charleston. I had some challenges that she helped me to breeze thru and she also helped talk me off a cliff or two. But that’s NOT what this review is about.
Let’s fast forward to this past weekend when she had to save my sister-in-law’s day. I had contacted my sister’s wedding planner looking for someone who could steam my bridesmaid dress (as I t was sure to wrinkle during my travel) and was rudely told by the planner that she could not help me. When I spoke to the bride about who was steaming her dress, I learned that she had no one in place and did not realize that her dress might require steaming. So, I remembered my dear Cacky and decided to reach out to her in a Hail Mary effort to get a last minute recommendation. I had no idea that Cacky would jump in to help us herself. This busy woman took our request at the very last minute and as always her work was impeccable.
It’s service like this that makes my heart smile. I WILL ALWAYS recommend Cacky’s Bride Aid service for your “right-hand-woman” needs. Whatever it is…she either does it OR knows someone EXCELLENT who does it. She truly goes above and beyond to serve her clients. Like I told her…the relationship she develops with her clients is not just a good thing…it’s a God thing because she is truly a God send. I cannot thank Cacky enough for coming thru to help save any bride’s special day!!
Cacky The Dream Maker!!!
Cacky was everything any bride could hope for on the day of her wedding and so much more!!! Cacky arrived early and went over a time line of the day with me. She began steaming all of my girls’ dresses and my wedding dress… She sewed my veil to my wedding dress because I was wearing a strapless gown but wanted my shoulders covered for the ceremony. At the last minute it was about to rain and she pulled out her phone, tracked the rain clouds, and strategically planned when we would walk to the church so to avoid getting wet- without her we would have been a soaked mess all running in to the church!! As the evening went on she made sure my husband and I were fed and had water, a drink, and my dress was bustled correctly. She knows how to take control of the situation and knows what to do and when to do it. From making sure all of my girls were taken care of, to keeping the wedding party calm and functional, Cacky mastered the day from start to end and made the entire day run smoothly. You MUST have Cacky for your wedding day because she is your wedding day angel!!!
EVERY bride needs a bridal aid
A month after my wedding, my now husband, my mother, my bridal party, and I are still talking about how invaluable Catherine was in making my wedding a success and how we have no idea what we would have done if she hadn’t been with us. A small confession, until the day of my wedding, I was still unclear why I needed a bride’s aid. I repeatedly told my fiancee that with wedding planners, a team of staff at our hotel venue, six bridesmaids, and a mom, I would have nothing for a “Bride’s Aid” to do. WOW am I glad he thought ahead and hired Cacky’s services anyway. From the moment Catherine arrived, she proved why Cacky’s Bride+Aid will be the best money ANY bride spends on the wedding. Catherine seamlessly handled (i) the things no one want to do, but that are important (bridesmaid dress steaming, anyone?), (ii) the things everyone else is too busy to do, (like photo styling cuz everyone else is actually in them or shooting them) and (iii) the emergencies that just happened. Not planning on having emergencies? Yup, neither was I. A groomsman ripped the side of his trousers. An hour after, my mom ripped the hem of her dress. Men can’t be trusted to iron appearantly. Catherine is LITERALLY the bridal fairy godmother; every emergency that arose, she handled immediately with superhuman speed, poise, and so much grace. I can not stress this enough: No matter what type of wedding you are having–big, small, anywhere in between, and no matter who you have hired/arranged to help (planners, stylists, the works, or just your mom) Cacky’s Bride+Aid is THE safeguard you need to prevent the most stressful day ever.

Don’t even think about it, hire Cacky for your wedding day!
I hired Cacky last minute. By some luck of the imagination, Cacky was available on my big day. I originally asked her to come steam by wedding dress the morning of, becuase it was shipped from NYC. After reading more reviews about Cacky and learning about all the amazing services she provides the day of, my instinct told me to ask her to accompany me all day.
Before the wedding, Cacky called me on the phone and had me send her photos of my dress so that she could properly prepare ahead of time. On the phone, I could tell I had already made the right choice by hiring her for my big day. Cacky was offering me tips, and advice about aspects of the day I would have never thought of on my own, but we’re very important. She was confident, warm, knowledgeable, and had a “YES” attitude which really soothed me and reassured me that any of my concerns that I had about my dress or about the long day ahead, Cacky would be right by my side and take care of me and my bridal party.
And that she did. Cacky worked behind the scenes (somehow managing to keep my dress out of view from all my bridesmaids) as we got into Hair and makeup. She put me into my dress, set up all my reveals, made sure I looked picture perfect all day. She helped set up the photos by popping champagne, pouring and handing everyone theirs so that we could get the perfect shot! If ever I felt overwhelmed (a lot of family photographs were taken) she would just look at me with a confident encouraging smile and I instantly felt ok. She literally did not leave my side until all our photos were complete, even though she was overtime . As I sat down for the first time all day, without saying a word Cacky took off my heels for me and massaged both of my feet so that I could feel relaxed and at peace.
I cannot say enough about Cacky, she is a professional with a sweet kind demeanor and hiring her to assist me on my special day was worth every penny.
Thank you Cacky.
Could not have made it through my wedding day without Cacky!!
You were such a HUGE asset to have on the wedding day. You kept everything running smoothly and on time as well as took SO much pressure off my mom so she could enjoy the day as much as everyone else! Thank you so much for everything, Cacky!
