    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

    Perfect is the best way to describe this amazing company

    The whole team at Trade Sensations are absolutely amazing!! They work together so well and work so hard to make everything exactly the way you want it to be! They coordinated my wedding and we’re a true blessing!! Through the whole process they were in constant communication with me and made sure that my vision came to life! They answered all my questions and were there for me every step of the way. They scheduled out my entire day and we’re in contact with my other vendors to make sure everything went smoothly! The day of the wedding they were working hard all day long and added special touches everywhere they went!! My absolute favourite part was that they took photos throughout the entire day and made sure to edit them and send them to me!! I don’t know what I would’ve done without them!! Thank you all so much!

    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!!

    Highly recommend

    When I was considering starting my wedding and events business I spoke to a dear friend/business owner who highly recommended getting a mentor in my industry. It was very tricky find someone who's quality of event work I admired but also had a mentoring program AND a successful business in the wedding/events industry. I was blown away when I found a business (on the other side of the world!) who not only had a similar business format as what I wanted to develop but also had gorgeous styling AND amazing reviews....and wanted to work with me...my months of hunting led me to Carla from Trade Sensation. What can I say? WOW! Carla was absolutely incredible. Taking me on as a client from Australia, all our correspondence was via phone and online and she happily worked in with timings that suited us both time-difference wise.

    I cannot recommend Carla's paid mentoring scheme/program highly enough. I’m entirely thankful for the wisdom and advice Carla provided me in starting my business. I'm proud to say that we've been running for a year now (a year on from my mentoring with Carla) and despite the many obvious challenges 2020 has thrown at us we have been successful. We've grown a great repeatable, business with only 5 star reviews. The mentoring, support and advice Carla provided has been invaluable skills, business tools, inside industry tips and trips and is a major contributor for the success in my business.

    Thank you Carla!! You are absolutely amazing and I could not have done this without your support, love, kindness, guidance and resources.

    Hire Trade Sensations Events & Co. if you want to truly enjoy your wedding day!

    My wedding planning journey began early in 2019. My husband and I were married this month (March 2020). Before I even discovered Trade Sensation Events, I was actively working to convince my husband that we needed to hire at least a day-of coordinator. He was convinced that since I am so organized that we didn’t need one. Thank goodness I won the competition that Trade Sensation had at the National Bridal Show! I originally won the day-of coordination package but eventually convinced my husband that we needed to upgrade to month-of coordination. This was hands down the best decision that we could have made for our sanity and wedding planning happiness! From the very first time we met Carla, we knew we were in good hands. She is super hospitable and every time we were in the studio we were offered delicious cupcakes. Carla is extremely organized and thorough, which made me feel super at ease since I am a huge control freak and the idea of having someone else in charge of the details of my wedding scared me a little bit. We were paired with Anvy and Justin as our day-of coordinators. Five weeks before the wedding, we had a meeting with Carla to set up our preliminary agenda. Being the type A person that I am, I came with what I believed was a detailed agenda. I was pleasantly surprised when Carla mentioned dozens of details that I hadn’t thought about. She was super knowledgeable as to how much time things should take, exactly how to time speeches so that they wouldn’t be interrupted by dinner service, and had several other tips and things to ask our vendors to ensure our day ran smoothly. After this, Justin and Anvy were in constant contact via e-mail and even created a WhatsApp group so that we could have our questions answered as quickly as possible. Justin attended our ceremony rehearsal at the church, which was an absolute relief! He made sure that our very large bridal party knew exactly what to expect. Anvy helped us with our traditional Chinese/Vietnamese tea ceremony, which helped us enjoy our jam packed day so much more since she executed all of the set up and clean up at our venue. My husband and I were fortunate enough to have been able to get married just before the state of emergency in response to covid-19 was put in place. We did, however, face several last minute cancelations, which affected our numbers and seating. Justin and Anvy handled these changes with absolute professionalism! They did not respond with stress but rather optimism and reassurance that everything would be fine. This was crucial in keeping our stress levels low. During the wedding reception, Justin and Anvy were absolute mind readers and came to check on my husband and I before we even knew we needed anything. They helped pump us and our bridal party up for our grand entrances and got rid of any nerves we had. They kept us on schedule throughout the entire night and made adjustments so that nobody noticed when our MC got a little excited and introduced some speeches too early! Anvy and Justin felt like they were part of our family. Their genuine desire to help us and their clear love of weddings made them super easy to trust! My husband and I were genuinely able to enjoy our entire wedding day all thanks to the Trade Sensation Events team - specifically Justin and Anvy. We did not stress or argue over anything because we knew we were in good hands. After the wedding, I asked my husband if he would ever recommend that any of his friends get married without hiring a planner to which he replied, “hell no!”. Thank you Carla, Justin, and Anvy from the bottom of our hearts for allowing us to have fun and celebrate our love amidst all of the chaos. We will absolutely be recommending your services to our friends and family in the future!

    So amazing !

    The staff at TradeSensations made the process really easy. They were always answering my emails within 24 hours which really helped to put me at ease throughout the whole planning process.
    On the day of, I cannot even begin to express how grateful I am that they were there. Anvy began at the venue and helped with ensuring everything was put together appropriately and the way we envisioned it and she did not disappoint. It went so smooth - if there were hiccups there, we had no idea. Liz and Justin were more my go-to people (both at church and throughout the reception). They were amazing from start to finish. Always ensuring we were taken care of - brought us our drinks and food and stood there making sure we ate. We had so many compliments on how our planners put together our wedding and we cannot be more happy with how it all turned out.
    Thank you to Anvy, Liz and Justin!!!!

    Great for the day of planning

    We had Anvy and Acie to help with the day of the wedding, and they did a great job, including setting up the venue and decor, keeping things to schedule, and dealing with random issue that came up. They contributed to a smooth day. So we would definitely recommend this company for the day of.

    Unfortunately, we signed up for partial wedding planning (Crystal) and that left quite a bit to be desired. I feel we respected the rules of this package, and did not ask for too much. We both have busy lives and wanted a wedding planner to alleviate the wedding planning burden. We felt that we couldn't completely trust them due to several episodes mainly related to them being unprepared and unorganized for meetings. On top of that, we asked for videographer recommendations, and rather than compiling a list with relevant details (e.g. cost, hours of coverage), they simply emailed vendors with us cc'ed - such that, we had to compile a list for ourselves. Another example, they "reviewed" a vendor contract but could not even pick out the amount of $$$ I would have to pay that particular vendor (they actually asked me). When I brought this up as an issue, the excuse was "its because I reviewed it on my iPhone". Everything was probably exacerbated by the fact that there was a revolving door of people you deal with, and that made it so no one actually knew the details of our wedding.

    While this review may seem harsh, it is only the "wedding planning" leading up to the wedding and not the "day of" services that I found underwhelming.

    Miracle Workers!!

    I was lucky to work with Carla, Anvy as well as Rashida from floral designs and basically what seems like the entire team as they performed a miracle on my wedding day, June 22nd, 2019. My venue had overbooked our wedding day, and Trade Sensation Events came together and worked tirelessly to transform the hall into my dream wedding in probably the shortest time in history. The whole design was better than I could've imagined - absolutely romantic and glamorous. I loved walking in and seeing how everything came together - from the backdrop, to the cake table, head table and our two special bridal party and parents table - it was more beautiful than I could've imagined. They were amazing to incorporate my plans for my centerpieces and making them absolutely stunning. Since booking them as my wedding decor vendors, they kept in constant touch, answered questions promptly, and worked hard to bring my entire vision to life. I would definitely recommend them to create your fairytale wedding any day! Thank you again for the amazing job you all did, I can't wait to get back my professional photos so I can admire the decor and flowers all over again!
