The lady below is absolutely insane. Oh
So Swank is the single most amazing part of my wedding. They are a completely full service, wonderfu,l awesome, event planning company that will change your life. Tina, the owner, is Martha Stewart meets David Tutera, and the best part is she is right in Fresno. The concern with most planners is the cost, and Oh So Swank is a bit pricey... but worth every penny. She and her team work hard, and every event is absolutely amazing.
Best of all, she even helped me with my school's Prom invites... which are gorgeous!
I wouldn't go anywhere else, and neither should you!
OH SO DECEPTIVE!.
Do NOT go to this place unless you want to pay 3-4 times what you would pay for the exact same items. I have had several vendors in Fresno tell me that they don't like to work with her because she takes what they charge and doubles it to make herself more money. She will design a wedding for you and make you pay full price for things that she will keep, so you are paying for her overhead. She owns nothing. If you don't take her rental insurance, then you have to be there to receive rentals and pack everything up at the end of the night....even if you get the full coordination package. EVERY SINGLE PRICE is outrageous, and top dollar, even if you are a client, and she will show you nothing until you sign the contract, and pay in almost full. There are no refunds. Contracts are iron clad. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID! Especially if you're on a budget!
Go here! Do not stop, do not pause, do not smell the roses!.
We had our wedding in southern california, but we were recommended to go with Oh So Swank through some friends of mine.
When we met with the owner, we weren't sure if we wanted minimal service, or the whole shebang (full wedding planning services). After looking at their work (invitations, programs, photos, videos, cakes, wedding designs) we just had to go with them.
Since we're down south, we have done almost all of our coordination via phone calls, emails, the occasional text message even. I think because of that there will always be some coordination and timing speedbumps.
But that should not take away from the amazing work they do. The finished product of our wedding invitation: friends were calling us/emailing from all over, "wish we had gone with that person", "I was looking for someone who could do that, but didn't find one", "it looks really high class" is just a small example. For the same price we were quoted someone down here in Los Angeles, to give a product with about half the quality and craftsmanship--we just can NOT complain!
The previous poster complaining about the custom invitations being misspelled--they do send a proof (of everything), which we went over. And we only went forward with all the things we wanted, down to the nitty gritty (rhinestones here, a typo there). They delivered, and how! Go here!
Don't Go Here!!.
When I first stepped into this shop I was taken back on how warm it seemed!! It was definitely swank for sure! The owner helped me find my wedding dress in her shop and I purchased it...everything went well with that, But then I hired her to make me custom invitations for my wedding which are still sitting in my house and are still misspelled. Beware her contracts are solid and only benefit her to the fullest! If you dont like something about it...put it in writing and have her initial it. Also, do everything in email with her....she will say she didnt say most of what she promised you. I currently am trying to get out of my month of coordinating contract with her because it is obvious that she is incompetent to do what is expected of her. You will have a major headache if you go through his company and nothing else...not even correct invitations that you paid for in full!!
