Cacky’s Bride + Aid is a wedding day ‘must have’ that we will forever remember and be grateful for!

Dear Cacky,

When Gathering Events highly encouraged Cacky’s Bride + Aid, for a split second I pondered “why the additional service?” yet thankfully never questioned Gathering Event’s request. After all and in typical Charleston fashion, we adore your family so why not!?!
Now we adore Cacky’s Bride +Aid! Your incredible service is difficult to explain until experienced yet we are so grateful that you were with us every step of that special day.
The entire bridal party, and other wedding day professionals, truly benefited from your watchful eye and calming demeanor. As Mother of the Bride, from the moment the girls arrived to dress (with George in tow, mind you!) until you bustled our over-the-moon happy bride, I had the privilege of savoring each moment as everything had been delegated to you! You genuinely shared in our joy and I stand in awe of your ‘behind the scenes’ professional participation.
You have an unparalleled ability to detect needs then just calmly address them. No one asked, you just did! I recall dressing robes beautifully lined up and waiting for the girls, hair and make up stations perfectly appointed, steaming and pressing dresses and gowns to perfection, even noticing that George needed to be walked plus repairing a bridesmaid’s earring. Those little unexpected things were handled and managed beautifully and without fuss.
Cacky’s Bride + Aid is truly more than a wedding day lifesaver. Your service is wedding day fairy dust and your were the magic bullet.
Cacky’s Bride+ Aid is a wedding day ‘must have’ that we will forever remember and be grateful for!
Elly joins me in heartfelt appreciation,

Both ladies and gents remarked that Cacky was the MVP that afternoon.

Cacky is a gem! She assisted our bridal party on the day of my daughter’s wedding with the poise, warmth and good counsel of a true pro. Cacky came prepared, having asked in advance all the questions she needed to ensure that our wedding day would go smoothly. She steamed dresses, tied bow ties, removed static from dresses and infused a sense of calm and serenity to the whole preparation. Both ladies and gents remarked that Cacky was the MVP that afternoon. You may think you don’t need help on the big day but everyone should have a Cacky. She anticipates the needs that you have not. My husband was such fan that the day after the wedding he remarked “Whatever you paid Cacky was money well spent!” Thank you Cacky!

I was upset I completely forgot my something blue the day of, and she actually had a blue piece of thread that she sewed into my dress 10 minutes before I walked down the aisle.

We decided to hire Cacky last minute, and I am so happy we did!! She was there during my bridal portraits helping me with my veil, placing my dress, giving me hand warmers(as they were taken outside in January). She is so helpful the day of the wedding. She steams the wedding dress and the bridesmaid dresses, helps during pictures and really just does whatever the bride needs her to do. I was upset I completely forgot my something blue the day of, and she actually had a blue piece of thread that she sewed into my dress 10 minutes before I walked down the aisle. I think my mom and I were a lot more relaxed the day of the wedding because of Cacky! I would definitely recommend her! She is awesome!!

Her experience is unmatched.

Cacky was a incredible asset to our wedding plan and made everything easy and stress free. Her attention to detail is incredible and her experience is unmatched. She helped us create and carry out a detailed plan for the day of the wedding. She is a calming helper on what can become a stressful day. Cacky really thinks of everything and I don’t know of anyone that offers the impeccable service she delivers. Cacky is a true gem and I can’t imagine our wedding day without her quiet help.

Cacky, I know there were so many “behind the scene” things that went on that I’m not even aware of. I truly cannot express my gratitude enough.

When friends of mine ask for wedding planning tips and advice, I always start with, “the one thing you must do is contact Cacky Rivers”! Cacky came as highly recommended from several friends/co-workers of mine. Taking their advice, I booked our initial consultation and INSTANTLY knew it was a great decision. From day one, she was always extremely prepared & organized, helped me question and come to decisions I would have never thought of on my own, and her personality is seriously contagious! When people say she is a wedding day lifesaver, it is true! From having my dressed steamed and ready, to helping me get dressed, to knowing just what to do with the lace detail on my dress and where to tape what – she has this skill mastered! She was also a complete lifesaver during photos – dabbing my face when needed, having cool water on hand, adjusting my dress, and more than anything, just keeping me calm and collected. I’m not kidding, this list could go on-and-on!

Cacky, I know there were so many “behind the scene” things that went on that I’m not even aware of. I truly cannot express my gratitude enough. You have such a talent to make bride’s feel so very special on their big day and to make their day go just perfectly! I am so very glad you will always be a part of that very special time in my life. Thank you SO much!
