The word “No” is not in The Red Coat Ladies vocabulary

Dear Pat — Mark and I knew that when Hanna and Steve got engaged that one of our first calls was to you! Your attention to detail is impeccable and you never made me feel embarrassed when I didn’t know the answers to your questions. You are the best wedding coach ever!

Your staff couldn’t be warmer and even when there were bumps in the road, Debbie and Donna handled them with the utmost professionalism and warmth. The word “No” is not in The Red Coat Ladies vocabulary. When I told friends that you even offered to save me a trip to Ann Arbor by picking up the marriage license, those who know you said, “That’s Pat” and those who didn’t were amazed. I don’t know when and where my son will get married, but if it’s in Michigan, there’s no doubt that you’ll get a call! Please don’t hesitate to use me as a reference.

Every detail — including a foot rub for the bride’s mother!

Pat was absolutely spectacular. She coordinated all of the small details that go along with a wedding day, from ensuring that there was food in the bridal suite, to a foot rub for a mother of the bride. I truly cannot imagine getting married to the love of my life without Pat and Sue present for this event. They took care of every small detail to ensure that this big event went off without a hitch. If you’re getting married, you NEED to have Pat there to make sure the most memorable day of your life is perfect!

Words cannot describe…

Words cannot describe how thankful I was to have The Red Coat Ladies last night! They were absolutely fabulous! They were so helpful, anticipated my every need, and the needs of our guests. I knew having you on board was going to be great, but I didn’t truly appreciate it until after last night! Many thanks for all of your tips for staying organized that night, and for all of the shlepping the ladies did with our stuff. Their help truly made the evening an absolute breeze! Thank you thank you thank you for everything!

Your team went over and above

I wanted to thank you for all of your help.  I had no idea what to expect and, to be honest, you and your team went over and above.  Donna and Debbie were outstanding.  I would refer you – and them – to anyone who needs help pulling off a party.  The evening was seamless, as far as I could tell, and their help throughout was invaluable.  Their attention to details and to us made us feel really special and I am happy to say that it was a fantastic evening and celebration.

You kept us calm

Good evening Pat! We do not want this day to go by without once again thanking you for your expert wedding planning. When the subject of a day planner came up many months ago, I thought it was a good idea however had no clue as to how much work you actually perform. You kept us calm in chaos, had everything in its place and even offered water at the right time and a calming foot rub for the bride. We do not know how we would have done it without you. As you may have guessed my children mean the world to me and you treated them with the same loving care. Please know we think the world of you. You will be our first call for the next Rowinski wedding. If you need a reference at any time – please give them our number. Take care Pat!

Amazing, sweet, and helpful

Pat was great at getting back to me immediately and helping settle all details. Our Red Coat Lady  was amazing and sweet and helpful. She got me water in the middle of pictures helped run the ceremony flawlessly and was so calm and collected. It was the best experience and I could not have asked for anything more!

You always go above and beyond

I could not imagine throwing a party without your help! Thanks to you and your amazing Red Coat team, the party went off without a glitch! You even managed to somehow fashion a button on Trevor’s jacket when he lost his button right at the party right before the photo shoot! Still not sure how you did that! I loved working with you last time and loved working with you even more this time around! You always go above and beyond! Thanks also for all the sound advice and for keeping me sane!

Just a quick note of sincere appreciation for an incredible evening. The Red Coat Ladies were exceptional. She was so calm, friendly and professional. Wow… they thought of everything, and then some.  Without a doubt, we all were able to enjoy the wedding and not worry about anything. Our guests were also impressed by their attentiveness, attention to detail, and courteous manner. We will, absolutely, recommend The Red Coat Ladies to all our friends.

Pat, thank you. We had the best evening.

Top notch!

Thanks for picking the BEST party coordinator for my event!!! Your team was top notch. I really did not worry about a thing the whole night and it went smooth as far as I could tell.

Beyond fabulous!

Pat, I needed to tell you that The Red Coat Ladies were beyond fabulous on Sat night. They were attending to every detail, including making sure that my husband and I were enjoying ourselves. I honestly can’t say enough nice things about them. Not only were they doing their jobs, but they just had the most amazing attitude and sweetness about them. I was sad to say goodbye to them at the end of the night. There is no doubt that they contributed hugely to the success of my daughter’s evening. Thank you so much for everything you helped with prior to the party, and please let Debbie and Donna know that I said thank you again.

Thank you again!!

Felt like a guest at my own wedding!

Hi Pat – I just wanted to take a moment to personally express my gratitude and appreciation for all you did to make my wedding so perfect. You literally took every concern and worry out of the day, you were truly indispensable and as a result, made our wedding so incredibly memorable. I honestly felt like a guest at my own wedding! Thank you again, Pat!!! You really are incredible!

Hiring you and your team is at the top of our list of necessities.

Now that I’ve had a day to recuperate, I wanted to send you a quick thank you.  Marlee’s bat mitzvah was everything I had hoped it would be!  Your employees were perfect.  Just so helpful.  If I needed anything, she was right there to take care of it.  Usually she had resolved any issues before I even knew about them.

I also wanted to thank you for being so easy to work with throughout this planning process.  Even though I’m pretty organized and even keeled, I was definitely feeling the stress the week before the bat mitzvah.  After our meeting at my house, you took all the pressure off of me.  Walking through your checklists made me feel like nothing was going to slip through the cracks.  Watching you cart away box after box of our giveaways, prizes, and candy from my living room into your van took such a weight off my chest.  Of all the expenses in throwing a party like this, hiring you and your team is at the top of our list of necessities.

Thank you again for everything!

It went so smoothly and the kids had the BEST BEST BEST time.

Hi Pat!  I can’t begin to express how much we appreciate everything you and Debbie did to make the planning and execution of Sydni’s Bat Mitzvah such a success. You are truly the BEST at what you do!!!!!! The night was just absolutely magical and I could not have done it without you!!!!! It went so smoothly and the kids had the BEST BEST BEST time. More importantly, Sydni had the best night of her life and still smiles from ear to ear when people ask her about it. A non-dancing party is a definite contender!!!!! The adults loved Sean Z and being able to actually talk to each other and the kids LOVED the activities. They really enjoyed doing something different. You are an absolute ROCK STAR!!!! There was only one thing that I noticed that I wish i could have changed… I would have suggested to leave one row of chairs empty in the back for those few that arrived late and did not want to try to find an open seat in the middle of the service. As there were a handful of people that were standing in the back during the entire service. Besides that… everything was PERFECT. And I would absolutely 1000% percent recommend that no party would be complete without a Red Coat Lady!! As a matter of fact, one of my vendors just asked me how helpful you were. My exact response was… It is KEY KEY KEY to have a Red Coat Lady for a bar/bat mitzvah!

Looking forward to working together in the future!

Dear Pat, Sean and I are so thankful for you and your staff and everything you did to make our wedding day a wonderful celebration. Your team was AMAZING! A total life saver! They went above and beyond our expectations and were always ready to troubleshoot and problem solve. I told myself I wasn’t going to answer logistical questions/address last-minute issues on my wedding day — and thankfully they took care of everything for me. They were super helpful as well and had great personalities. They managed to be upbeat and calming/comforting at the same time, which is not easy to do!

As always, we will recommend The Red Coat Ladies to anyone planing an event in the Detroit area. Thank you so much for everything you and your team do!

Very impressed! I sang your praises!

Very happy client!  Very impressed with you Pat, and your staff!  Will definitely tell all my friends and refer to you!  So will my mom, my friends, & everyone at the party because I sang your praises and they loved it all!

Warmest Regards.




Husband said what a difference they made…

There is not enough room in this testimonial box to thank you for The Red Coat Ladies help with my wedding. I really am so grateful for their services… they helped make our wedding day INCREDIBLE.

The team went above and beyond on my wedding day to make sure I felt prepared and comfortable and calm. My husband and I had a huge (and LOUD!) bridal/groomsmen party – and she was able to keep them all in line (a huge undertaking) and get them where they need to be and when. The best part is she did it in a super calm and respectful way, which we truly appreciated it.

They were prepared for everything! Literally had a belt on that had items I might need! She made sure we had food after our ceremony so we could eat before we were greeted by everyone and checked in with me throughout the evening to make sure I was all good (and even taped up my dress a few time as it was slipping down!)

Pat also worked with my mom for many hours before the event to make sure all of her questions were answered. I am so appreciative she was there to work with my mom as I live across the country and I know it was such a help to her.

My husband made a comment after the wedding about how incredible The Red Coat Ladies were and what a difference having them at the wedding makes. We were able to just relax and know everything was taking care of and we could just enjoy our epic wedding. it was truly epic! She is so confident and knows this world so well and we are beyond lucky we hired her.

They even made sure my favorite drink was on the table waiting for me. So wonderful!

I HIGHLY recommend her to everyone throwing any event… especially a wedding, The Red Coat Ladies are wonderful!
