    Top Tier Service

    The team of Carla, Debbie and Justin are truly the dream team. They attended to our every need and we're so hospitable. From day one they were so kind and understanding, where other planners were giving us the cold shoulder because we were going to be immediate clients, the team here understood our situation and encouraged us to do what we wanted. They were accommodating to our every need. Made our dreams come true. They were so friendly and went the extra mile, they really walk you through everything. I have told all my friends getting married you need a wedding planner and look no further than trade sensations .

    Amazing planners who genuinely care

    My husband and I are so happy that we decided to have a partial day of planner, it made for a seamless ceremony and it definitely helped take some stress off of us. Our agenda was very thorough and organized so we always knew what was going on. We are so happy with the service provided to us and we would definitely recommend them.

    Good experience

    We hired Trade Sensation for day-of coordination. When we first found them through wedding wire and when we were doing consultations with various groups they seemed like the best option for us. They were communicative, and seemed to really understand our personal needs. We had to postpone a year because of covid and paid a nominal fee for that.

    Our experience leading up to the big day could have been better. They seemed very disorganized. I did everything they asked including emailing them all the final documents almost a full week early so they had plenty of time to review. Somehow, our lead planner didn鈥檛 seem to receive any of this even though their manager had responded acknowledging receipt.

    I also updated our preliminary agenda in the Google doc they shared with us well in advance. They were supposed to use this to make the final agenda and went out the agenda to all our vendors, but it wasn鈥檛 updated and was missing a ton of information. They had to redact the email and redo the agenda. They said there was a glitch and things didn鈥檛 update in the Google doc on their end for some reason.

    A number of other communication issues came up leading up to the big day. For example, I responded to emails almost immediately and then they would send messages asking if we had received their email at all. We told them we did and had actually responded over an hour or two beforehand but they hadn鈥檛 seen it. Throughout the year, they also kept telling me to CC other people on the team. I was doing this consistently but it seemed like they weren鈥檛 seeing the CCs so I鈥檓 not sure what was going on.

    On the day of, everything was impeccable and executed perfectly so I have no complaints there. I was just worried about the weeks leading up to the big day and wish they could鈥檝e been better at the communication piece so we weren鈥檛 so worried. Finally, when we sent them a message to thank them at the end they didn鈥檛 even use the right names in their response to us and called us something completed different. I guess they have a lot of weddings on the go, but it would鈥檝e been nice to feel like they at least knew who we were!

    Awesome team

    A month before her wedding, our daughter suggested that we engage Trade Sensation as our day of the event coordinator. Having planned all the details and engaged the vendors ourselves for our cross cultural event, I was hesitant as I felt it was not necessary - Boy! wasn't I wrong about that!!
    I was very glad that we had Justin with us on the big day! He was everywhere taking care of our multiple requests and needs - all with a smile on his face. Indian weddings are long with multiple events and Justin and Mandeep made it seamless for all of us.
    When we had to reschedule the evening events - Jewish ceremony and reception - to a later date, Trade sensation accommodated the change and worked their magic again. Justin and Angela made us relax, laugh and enjoy the evening making sure everything was perfect. Thank you Trade Sensation team!

    Amazing Wedding Planning Experience!

    My experience with Trade Sensations was AMAZING. We hired them fairly early in our engagement, and even though we had to postpone our wedding due to COVID they remained responsive and communicative the entire time. We dealt with a number of different team members, but everyone was great to work with. They helped us to review contracts, find vendors (i.e. makeup/hair artist, venue, caterer, officiant), and once we got to the month of the wedding, we worked with Justin!

    I cannot say enough good things about Justin as a lead planner. He is so fun to work with, and he is organized and prepared and the absolute life of the party. If I talk to anyone about my wedding, Justin is always brought up because he was so amazing. He made sure the schedule was shared with all our vendors, and that it was executed flawlessly. We were even ahead of schedule throughout our big day. I couldn't have asked for a better experience with a wedding planning team. Thank you Trade Sensations, and thank you Justin!

    Forever thankful to this team!

    Debbie and the whole team at Trade Sensations were great to work with and made the wedding planning process so simple. We hired them for their half day coordination package as we largely needed support with decor setup and ensuring for a smooth flow throughout the day - and they delivered above and beyond! There were a few hiccups from the venue throughout the evening and Debbie was right there to take care of everything and ensure we had a wonderful evening without worry. Debbie was warm and welcoming and executed everything exactly as I had envisioned, and we cannot thank her and the team enough!!

    Trade Sensation Events Inc's reply:

    Ashley,
    It was such a pleasure and honour to work with you both and I am so happy you were happy with everything. I wish you all the love and health in the world. Thank you for everything!
    All the best,
    Debbie

    Amazing!!!

    We had a small intimate wedding during the difficult times of the pandemic. Both Zaid and I work busy schedules and let me tell you we had a wedding planner named Justin who was amazing!! Everyone that day complimented how great he was and how smoothly our day went! Not only did he make sure all the vendors were there and on time , he also made sure Zaid and I were always good and taken care of that night and made our wedding day go as smoothly as possible.

    We also had our decor and florals done by trade sensations as well and they did an amazing job too it all looked so beautiful!

    Love you guys!!!

    Absoulutely Phenomenal!

    We came for a consultation and was blown away almost instantaneously at the professionalism and the attentiveness of these beautiful people! Carla went through every detail to make sure her and I were on the same page. Luckily I was prepared with my vision but Carla brought it more so to life than I could have imagined! I was so nervous because I wasn't sure exactly what d茅cor/floral entailed exactly and Carla and her team took their time to actually listen to what I envisioned and made a display right there for me to see visually! Carla didn't rush or constantly try to push any thing on me, she let me lead the appointment with what I wanted while giving options to obtain it realistically. I had so much fun just being there and talking about details that it made me so at ease and feel completely trustful of their work. If you are nervous and unsure, COME HERE! They are incredibly kind, patient and they care about your day as much as you! I'm so incredibly happy I came here and had this experience and can't wait to move forward! They are incredible and you wont be disappointed!

    Decor Team was Terrific!!

    Liz and her team from Trade Sensation Events set up our rustic micro wedding and brought our vision to life with DIY items we wanted showcased. Our small intimate wedding was amazing and we were over the moon happy with Liz, her team and her level of expertise. From our first meeting to the actual day, we felt like Liz was part of our family and we could feel and see that she truly cared about us, our special day and making it unforgettable...this made us feel so at ease and stress free. She truly wanted to make every aspect perfect. Even though our wedding was a very small intimate wedding, the level of care was outstanding and greater than we could have imagined. We would absolutely recommend Trade Sensation Events for any planning needs!!
