I used Sincerely Yours Events for their "Day of" wedding package and my wedding invitations. My wedding invitations came out soo beautiful. The quality of them was very nice. Tammy was very patient going through all of my options with me, because I had no idea what I wanted. I received a lot of compliments on my invitations from friends and family when they received them. As for the "Day of" service this company provides, it is WELL WORTH it. Tammy and her assistant Melinda were amazing to work with. They started working with me approximately 30 days prior to the wedding. They were both so friendly, professional, and extremely helpful. I called many times with questions and they were so happy to help. They never made me feel like any question was too big or small (or stupid). They always got back to me in a timely manner by phone or email. Tammy always comes to your event looking professional and well put together. She is always willing to jump in and help with any issue that arises. My sister ripped her entire MOH dress the first 5 minutes of getting out of the limo and Tammy already had her sewing kit out and fixed it within a few minutes. She is calm, nurturing, and reassuring on probably the most stressful day of your life (for the bride that is :)), which helps a lot. I never had to worry about anything that day because I knew she had it under control. All of my guests and famiily loved her as well. In fact they said "Everyone needs a Tammy in their life", which pretty much sums up how I felt about her. I would highly recommend Tammy and her company SYE.

Thank you thank you thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the hard work and dedication you put in to making my day perfect . Your thoughtfulness and attention to detail helped make our day even more special. There were so many walls we hit and we overcame every single challenge. And in the end i got to marry my best friend. Your professionalism and kind heart are an amazing combination. You were there for us not only with your actions but emotionally as well. No matter the task or challenge, you went at it full force and got the job done. It meant more to me than I can ever really describe to you In words. You weren't just my planner, but a true friend.
With lots of love,

I cannot say enough about Tammy and her team. She's is one of the most caring and thoughtful people I have ever meet and it was such a pleasure to be able to work with her. She and her team are attentive and go above and beyond to ensure that everything and anything goes according to plan. My wedding was 5 days after a major hurricane hit Long Island and she did everything should could to help me make it happen. It all came together in the end and I do believe that I went as smoothly as it did with all of her efforts. She really does care about her clients. I would recommend Tammy for any event or service that you might need. I look forward to working with her in the future.

I met with many wedding planners and left each meeting worried that my vision wouldn’t be executed. Luckily I was recommended to Tammy at Sincerely Yours Events. Tammy is so knowledgeable and has an amazing eye for decor and detail. After our first meeting I knew she would be the perfect fit for me. I can’t express how amazing Tammy and her assistant Melinda were throughout my planning process. There was no problem big or small that Tammy couldn’t handle, she went above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect for my big day. Tammy exceeded my expectations and helped me create the wedding of my dreams. I’m so thankful for Tammy and her team at Sincerely Yours Events and loved working with them!

Tammy and her team at Sincerly Yours Events were nothing but professional and helpful with the planning of our wedding. Tammy and her team truly care about their clients and go above and beyond every step of the way. Our wedding was the Friday after Sandy and Tammy and her team did everything they could to ensure everything ran as smoothly as possible. Both Tammy and her team are extremely talented and detail oriented. Ensuring all aspects of the event are covered from beginning to the end. I cannot say enough great things about Tammy, her team and Sincerly Yours Events and would recommend them to anyone looking for invitations or an event planner. Tammy makes you feel like family and that says allot about the type of business she conducts.

I am sorry to say that I did not have as wonderful experience with Tammy as I had hoped. POSITIVES: She was extremely personable when we met at a bridal expo, and she had beautiful materials with her which sold me and my mom on her services. Her office is very nice and had lots of inspiration samples. We booked our invitations through her, and they were beautiful (but very expensive) On the day of, she did a nice job with the candy bar, and handled some issues behind the scenes, for which we were very appreciative. Her assistant Melinda was excellent to work with. NEGATIVES: In our initial meetings Tammy didn’t seem like a listener - it created some tension. Through the process there was some unprofessional communication with me over email when I didn't format addresses for the invites correctly (unknowingly). She used bold, italics, quotes, caps and underlines - I am a client services director – if I spoke to a client like that I would be fired on the spot. There were also issues with the invites, they were late, misprinted, and we're supposed to be hand calligraphy instead of print. These issues all could have been avoided if she proactively communicated and provided samples. I learned through that process to continually ask the most granular questions because if I didn’t, there would more than likely have some sort of issue or miscommunication as a result. As we got closer to, I handled most everything else on my own, but when I had a few logistical questions she brushed me off and said she was too busy and had too many other clients. She could improve in the future by remembering that customers are paying her and she should respect that relationship; by listening to the big picture of what the bride wants and then guiding with her expertise from there; and by not over-booking herself so that she has time to dedicate to the people who are paying/depending/looking for guidance from her. She came through on the wedding day and didn't make a scene, but leading up to it, Tammy was my *only* headache throughout the process. My other vendors were wonderful, and even when things went wrong with them, they were courteous, and took care of it immediately without a battle or one rude email.

I hired this company with a lot of promises up front for my initial consultation.
I was told my wedding planning would take place 30 days before my event since I hired a day of coordinator. This was part of their pitch. The service was VERY expensive at $1700 for the day of service.
The actual day of coordinator Melinda was very good, but getting to that day was extreme frustration.
My timeline was not finalized until two days before my wedding. This was so stressful for a first time bride. There was so much work that I put into the process giving my planner every detail. Her job should have been a breeze, but it still took till the last week to actually get any details. My thought was that they take too many brides and they leave the timeline till the last week.
What I would have appreciated would have been open communication that my timeline would not come till the last week and I may not have had to stress as much. The sales point of the 30 days prior start time for the timeline was a complete untrue pitch.
If you have the extra money in your budget I would still recommend a day of coordinator, but I would be sure to ask them a lot of questions as to when the timeline will be completed. And make sure you ask when the preliminary vs the final timeline will be prepared. Key words help during this process.
Oh, and last but not least they are extremely particular as to what they call extras. I had a couple requests for my planner while she was still making her vendor calls and the owner (who claims she misunderstood my emails) said these small things were not included in her services. They were literally requests like: please ask the venue if they can tell you what type of toiletries they supply or please ask the performer what playlist he will use. It was an uncomfortable moment for me during a stressful time.
Lastly, the day of went very smoothly and I thought Melinda did a great job, but leading up to that day was not enjoyable for me nor did I think the company was efficient.

From the moment I met Tammy, I knew she was the one. She is a consumate professional. She has exquisite taste, but respects your own individual style. She knows everything about the wedding process. She is super organized and attentive. I don't know how I could possibly have organized the wedding without her.
