Phenomenal, above and beyond experience! If you are looking to have gorgeous wedding decor & flowers with professional and affordable set up, call Debbie at A Tailored Event NOW! I first met Debbie at the Civitan Beach House. She happily walked my fiancé and I around the facility giving us a tour. We ended up hiring her to do all of our decorating, flowers, beach arch, etc. and I’m so glad we did! Debbie is the real deal and her work is top knotch! The day of our wedding everything was set up beautifully. The flowers filled the beach house with incredible scents and the colors were remarkable! The flowers she made were gorgeous and everyone loved them. When the facility realized they ran out of toilet paper and paper towels for a party, Debbie went to the store in procured everything we needed. My guest had no idea anything was missing. I highly recommend Debbie and A Tailored Event. You will not be disappointed! More...

My husband and I got married on 3/2/19 at Largo Central Park. Debbie and her team at A Tailored Event went above and beyond to make our wedding an absolute dream. They made sure every detail was perfect and her communication with my husband and I was impeccable! She took all of our ideas and made them into our dream wedding. Our ceremony site was outdoors and she created the most beautiful arch exactly how we imagined it and turned our indoor reception venue into a beautiful work of art. Our bouquets, centerpieces, corsages, and boutonnieres were much more incredible than we could have ever imagined! Debbie was very easy to work with and was nothing but kind and helpful from the beginning to the end. She made many of the normal stressors of wedding planning much more enjoyable for us. We will always recommend A Tailored Event for any special life events. Thank you so much to Debbie and her amazing crew! More...

The service I experienced here was nothing less than extraordinary. Debbie and everyone helping on my wedding day were so kind and professional. My wedding was beautiful top to bottom and I will definitely hire A Tailored Event again for any future events that I will have. More...

I hired A Tailored Event to help me on my wedding day, and everything was perfect from start to finish. Cheryl and Debbie were extremely professional and worked very hard to take any stress off my shoulders. I have never seen a more dedicated staff and it really shows in their work. Thank you all for making our wedding so wonderful! More...

Have used their services and highly recommend them. When I was Catering Sales Manager, Debra came through with great ideas and coordinating.

We contracted with a Tailored Event for our wedding at The Zamora Hotel for a rooftop wedding. Our flowers were beautiful, decorations and lighting were also beautiful! Our day of coordinator Zhaklin was top notch! If there were any glitches, we sure didn't know about it. Was an absolutely perfect wedding! Thank you guys sooooo much!!! More...

A Tailored Event not only saved my son’s wedding today the owner came out herself to pick up the chairs I rented! She has the best customer service, she’s so creative, and I would recommend her services over any other companies like hers here at IRB

I was excited to find a tailored event. I had been searching for a while and everything was out of my price range, not to mention they didn’t offer customization. Before contacting Debra I looked through her site and loved all the different options she had and to my surprise it was all for a reasonable price. I contacted her and told her about my vision. She was happy to design everything I wanted even things that were not on her website. Not only does Debra handle arches, she’s also a florist so I ordered all my flowers from her. On the day of my wedding, everything came out beautiful. I am so happy I found Debra and her team! They really made my vision come to life and for a reasonable price. Thank you so much for making my day amazing. More...

I hired A Tailored Event to assist me with my wedding and had the best experience using her business. She did everything from decor to flowers and coordinating service. Her and Cheryl made sure everything was done up to my expectations and that I didn't have to stress about anything. I have never seen anyone work as hard as Debbie, and her experience shows through her work. I will recommend her business to anyone in the area! Thank you for making my dreams come true ! More...

Best event company in the area. Prices are great and the staff are very helpful. Kristin & Debbie are great at what they do. Anyone planning a wedding should use A Tailored Event. They have the best arches and locations in the Bay area. More...

Debbie did an amazing job with our wedding. Her pricing is very competitive. I met once with her, showed her some pics of my colors and what I wanted and let her have free reign over the decorations and WOW! She delivered! We had guests take home centerpieces and they lasted for close to 2 weeks. Simply phenomenal. I would not hesitate to hire her for any other events we might have in the future. She made our wedding reception decor stunning. More...

Was amazing. Everything turned out the way I wanted it to be. She did all the decorations and flowers for Ceremony and Reception.

AMAZING! I first found these guys while looking for a florist for my wedding, and that's all I focused on. However at our first meeting, when I walked through their door, I realized my short sightedness immediately!! They offer EVERYTHING!!! And if they don't - they KNOW people/places that do!!!

Their enthusiasm is OUTSTANDING, they have ideas in abundance, as well as suggestions that help guide and fine tune things you didn't even realize that you needed guidance and fine tuning on LOL!!

At our first meeting I knew I'd found a partner that would make my "vision" come alive. Not only am I using them for my flowers, but for the set up of my beach wedding, AND the total transformation of our friends home (where our reception is being held) from "personal home" to "Marie Antoinette would deff have partied here!" type of look, inside and out!

Trust me - they have everything you could need or want to deck out your wedding and/or reception site no matter where you hold it or what you envision in your head! From simple & sweet to outlandishly lux - they can do it!! Added bonus, if you have personal things you want to incorporate, they have no problem adding in your items with what they provide.

Debra and Dawn are just "IT" when it comes to anything wedding!! They LISTEN, suggest and then LISTEN again! Fine tune, adjust, LISTEN, fine tune, adjust... you get the idea... And that's all before they come out to your sites! Then once more, walk around, suggest, listen, fine tune, adjust, listen, tweek, suggest etc...

It's all about teamwork with them - and I thank my lucky stars that my search for a florist led me to them! I can not image how the vision for our day would have been completed without these ladies!!! They will be my 'go-to' for any event going forward.

Debbie is amazingly talented. My flowers and center pieces were breathtaking. She took the ideas in my head and made them even better! Everyone is still talking about how beautiful my bouquets, tables, and center pieces were. She also is so easy to work with and makes the process so easy. Thank you for making my dream wedding a reality. More...

My flowers were exactly what I wanted. The arch was perfect. Only complaint I have is the sound system. It is advertised that they have a PA system and they arrived with an ipod dock. No one could hear the music. Also, they do not stay on the beach for the wedding. They set up, leave and you are on your own. I thought that they would "coordinate" things. More...

I hired ATE for my beach wedding last December. Our venue provided an arch and the chairs, and I worked with Debbie to create a package for arch drippings, chair sashes, ferns, and potted floral arrangements. The sashes were priced well compared to our venue and draping and pottery looked, though a little pricey, looked beautiful. Debbie sent images to me of the arrangements a few days before, so that I could tweak any aspects. She was also very flexible in terms of tweaking one or two aspects of the contract that we didn’t feel comfortable with. Overall, we were very happy to find a company that offers such customization and treated our smaller wedding as important as any other. When we goofed our dates and missed our second payment deadline. She brought it to our attention and was very understanding. She continued to work on the arrangements while we rushed payment to her. We asked about set up/removal of the décor and understood that it would be set up way in advance and someone would return for it after the ceremony. Everything was set up on time and we were very happy with how well everything turned out. More...

Debra was great to work with. She provided the beach decor, chairs, decorations, sand ceremony, and flowers. The bouquets were absolutely BEAUTIFUL and she made the bouquets exactly how I wanted them. We had additional items like signs for the beach, programs, and umbrellas that she picked up the day before and made sure to have set up on the beach (which wasn't part of the package I paid for, just a nice thing that she did). She is very busy, so it did take some time to get all of the details sorted out... and the fact that I added so many things along the way made it difficult for us to manage but in the end she made the beach look beautiful, and it was perfect. I wish I would have had all of the details sorted out before signing the first contract. It was my fault that I kept adding things! For future weddings I would suggest meeting with her over the phone or in person and sorting out all of the details up front so that you don't have to keep emailing changes back and forth. This would probably be the best thing for her as well since she is so busy. Would recommend her for sure!!! The beach looked breathtaking and the flowers and boutonnieres were beautiful. More...



6 June 2017

Flowers were one of my biggest priorities and I was shocked by the prices I was being quoted. Debbie sat down with me on our first meeting and understood my vision. She added some wonderful suggestions to take it to the next level with only minimal upgrades. I ended up getting linens, overlays, flocwers for both ceremony and reception, chargers, candles and chuppah at an incredible price. Everything came out even more beautiful than I could've imagined. Had I gone anywhere els, I would've been charged at least double and probably wouldn't have even gotten the quality of work I received. She was a pleasure to work with and would reccomend her to any bride! More...

A Tailored Event provided me with the wedding of my dreams. From the arch,
to the centerpieces, and amazing lighting it was wonderful. Debbie made my wedding stress free and simple she was great to work with. I drove her crazy with emails and phone calls which she was always there for both..Thank you More...

From start to finish this company does it all. Their prices are great and they offer so many different services and products, taking stress off the bride because its a one stop shop. I had them do my flowers, centerpieces, wedding coordinating, and wedding decor. They covered everything from top to bottom, they were extremely accommodating, professional, and put on one fantastic wedding. The decor, flowers and centerpieces came out better than I could have even imagined. Jacqueline and Debbie were amazing and I'm sending any bride I know their way!! More...



14 January 2017

Debbie had a thorough consultation with us and gave us some great ideas for our reception! The flowers were beautiful and exactly what I had pictured. Her team did excellent work with set up and take down on the wedding day. More...

If I could give Debra and A Tailored Event 10 stars for value, I would! She specializes in beach weddings, but we got married at The Florida Aquarium and only needed bouquets and centerpieces. I knew I wanted blue orchids, but when I started searching for florists I was in shock with how much they were quoting me. When I came across Debra's website and there were pictures of bouquets that looked exactly like what I had in mind, I immediately reached out and was so relieved to be quoted a great price. We got 1 bridal bouquet, 6 bridesmaid bouquets, 2 junior bridesmaid bouquets, 11 boutonnieres, loose petals for the flower girl, and 2 corsages for our moms all using combinations of white roses and blue orchids. We also rented 10 centerpieces - each had 3 glass cylinders with water, blue orchids, and floating candles on top of a square mirror. My total was only $1000! Incredible value and everything looked great. I was reallyyy impressed with the quality of the centerpieces especially. More...



17 October 2015

Debbie was great to work with! We had to get venue decorations and reception decor two months before our wedding day because the previous decorator that we had screwed us over. Debbie came in like a knight in shinning armor. She helped us in getting colors that we wanted. She did all of the decor for the ceremony and reception and our guests are still talking about how beautiful it was. One of our guests said that we were romancing all of our guests on the beach with that decor and multiple people said that it looked like something out of a movie. The reception looked phenomenal. I found Debbie's honesty to be a breath of fresh air. If she didn't have something specifically, she always made a suggestion or offered to get what we needed. She even let us have the decor until the next day so that our guests could enjoy the reception. We would definitely recommend her! More...

Cheryl was wonderful! The bouquets, flowers, centerpieces, and corsages/boutonnieres were all beautiful and exactly what I wanted. I saw special touches everywhere which really made the ceremony and reception more warm and personal. She was truly a pleasure to work with which took so much of the wedding planning stress from me. I originally thought I could do it all myself, but quickly realized that was impossible. I truly could not have done it without her! It was an amazing day, and I am very grateful for her help.

A tailored event has the most selection of wedding arbors/ arches at affordable prices. I got the bamboo arch and it was absolutely beautiful. Def a nice addition to my ceremony. Debie was very helpful and professional. More...

We used A Tailored Event for the chuppah for our Jewish wedding, as well as the chair sashes, napkins, and centerpieces. This venue is perfect for tropical- or beach-themed weddings, including ones held indoors like ours. The bamboo chuppah was beautiful! It looked tasteful and not out-of-place in the hotel ballroom where we had the ceremony. They did cover the top as Jewish tradition requires; this wasn't shown on their website, so be sure to ask. We also ordered some blue flowers for the sides of the chuppah, which looked great. The seashell centerpieces are a nice alternative to flowers at $25 each. The chair sashes and centerpieces were perfectly neat and coordinated. More...

I shopped around for a long time looking for a florist who could provide the arrangements I wanted for the wedding at a reasonable price. I wanted something very specific and was getting quotes that were simply outrageous! When I got the quote from A Tailored Event, I was so shocked by the price difference that I thought maybe I wasn't going to get the same type of quality. I made a visit in person and was blown away by their work. Debra was so warm and made me feel comfortable right away. On the day of the wedding, I couldn't stop admiring the centerpieces and the arch for the ceremony was stunning! Don't get ripped off by other florists. Get what you want and get it at a fair price from A Tailored Event! More...

Debra did a wonderful job with our wedding arch, she listened to exactly what we wanted and created our vision just perfectly.
The arch was fantastic. We had the single arch and added extra fabric so we could have both royal blue and ivory and it looked wonderful. The silk flower arrangements were also very beautiful.
I would highly recommended A tailored event



25 April 2014

A Tailored Event provided me with an arch, a table, and some hanging starfish for my beach ceremony. In comparison to other vendors, the communication seemed a bit slow and was more difficult. However, everything was executed perfectly and we got multiple comments about how beautiful the decorations were. More...



27 April 2013

Very friendly and so wonderful that they can do it all... they provided the archway for outside, linens for inside, card cage, additional smaller tables that the reception center did not have, and flowers even (which were amazing!)



3 March 2013

Debra provided my linens, and lighting and decor for my wedding. It was all I wanted and more. The flowers were so beautiful. Thank you so much



2 March 2013

I was very happy with the finished product working with Debra. The process of getting there was kind of a pain! She had a beautiful product, however trying to explain to her what I wanted was a nightmare. I am very glad she made sure to get me exactly what I wanted but I just wish she had listened better the first few times I explained it so it wouldn't have been such a headache! I wanted the smaller bamboo canopy (shown on her website) with medium draping (also shown on her website, just on a larger canopy). When I tried to explain this to her she was very confused and it was just a total headache trying to get her to listen to me and what I wanted. Then, she arrived at my venue at the wrong boardwalk and unloaded before ever confirming the location with me (I sent this info to her in an email which she replied to). I deal with vendors every day working as a wedding planner and this was one of the most painful processes I've been through. However, for the price and quality of product, I suppose I would use her again. I would try to find someone who would listen to me a little more in the same price range if possible. More...

Debra made a gorgeous beach arch for us. She also made an aisle way, provided chairs on the beach, sashes for chairs, and chair covers for our reception hall. On the whole, her work was top-notch, and everything looked beautiful. My only complaint is that the aisle way she made for us was too short, and not as professional-looking as I had hoped. That item didn't seem like a good value. Everything else looked great, though. Her prices for chair covers and sashes were better than the local competition. She is not terribly responsive to email and is best reached by phone or in person. She did a nice job with our set-up, though, and I would recommend her. More...



24 November 2012

We used A Tailored Event for our beach wedding set up, as well as custom linens for our reception. Our wedding on the beach was beautifully set up by Debbie - we had a starfish theme aisle, along with a starfish unity table and a starfish bamboo arch. It was just enough to provide elegance to our beach wedding. She also provided our chair covers, chair bows, and table overlays at our reception, which all provided that much needed touch for our reception. Debbie is easy to work with and her price is very reasonable. More...



27 October 2012

Debra was great and answered all of my questions along the way. Despite the 30 mph winds on the beach, everything was set up perfectly for our ceremony.



31 March 2012

Cheryl from A Tailored Event was a really great florist. Most importantly, my flowers were so, so beautiful--more so than I had even imagined. I still look at them in my photos in awe, and many of my guests commented on them.
Cheryl met me early on the wedding day to coordinate set-up--way out on the beach--and she was there at the end of the night for clean-up. She also dealt with last-minute weather confusion and venue change and still made everything look so beautiful.
She did forget to get some flowers/corsages to a few people, so make sure to get these "delivery" times coordinated and set in stone. I was pretty laid back about things leading up to the wedding, so some of these details were left out.
The only other thing I would recommend is that brides remember to coordinate with their florist about what happens to their items at the end of the night--extra party favors and whatnot--because Cheryl and I had not talked about it, and things slipped through the cracks.
Overall, great experience, and I would recommend this company.



29 February 2012

Prices are reasonable for anything you are looking for and they are willing to customize a package or individual items for you. Great individual's to work with.



21 January 2012

Trying to plan a bridal shower for my sister was especially challenging for me because I live out of town. Debbie from A Tailored Event was WONDERFUL! She went to the venue in my stead, determined exactly what kind of decorations would work best, and made many helpful recommendations. The bridal shower was this past Saturday, and the "look" of it surpassed my expectations. Everyone commented on the tulle and fabric draped about, as well as the gorgeous orchid centerpieces and candles. It was a lovely party and the decorations were PERFECT. Thank you, A Tailored Event!
