Cheers Design & Event Planning


Testimonials from The

"My husband and I got married on August of 2012 in Upstate New York. My parents live in the Washington DC area and were not able to help with the wedding as much as they would have liked. Cheers Design & Event Planning, which is operated by two kind-hearted women, were there for me every step of the way. We purchased the full package and they did everything from a vision board / book to attending appointments with us to setting up the venue. This company also has the basic necessities for rent, such as lanterns, napkins, tablecloths, vases and servingware. My husband and I actually enjoyed the whole wedding process. Instead of being extremely busy up to the second the wedding started, I did not have anything left to do the week prior to the wedding except worry about friends and family arriving safely. Joanne and Debbie even called around for the best group rate on hotels. During any wedding process, the bride and groom need an advocate, someone who is not a part of the family or wedding party. They advocated for us every step of the way. We are forever grateful that this company listened to our desires and did everything in their power to make our love for each other the 'main event.' These two woman played a pivotal role in the best and most unforgettable day of our lives. We had several couples approach us following the wedding to ask for suggestions or helpful hints, and we always say that a wedding planner is the way to go! However, if you have the opportunity to work with this company in particular: Jump at the Chance!"

"The Best in the North Country! This company is amazing!! The wedding planning/consulting team consists of Joanne Dumers and Debbie Morgan. They offer everything from full planning to design help to day-of decorating and coordination. Hiring them was probably the best money we spent on the wedding. While my family, friends, and wedding party were at the rehearsal dinner, Joanne and Debbie were at the reception venue decorating everything for us. They helped seat everyone for dinner, lined up the wedding party for the processional and handled coordination with all of our wedding vendors. They met with us a handful of times to discuss our vision, hammer out details, and helped come up with some design ideas. They also had a great supply of wedding materials available to rent, which cut down on cost and eliminated us having to scour the internet for deals. It also prevented us from having a hundred used candles and 20 lanterns laying around the house after the wedding. For everything Cheers did for us, they were very affordable and worth every penny! Hire a planner / coordinator: you'll be so glad you did!

"I don't know where to begin to thank you for all you did for us for Lindsay and Matt's wedding. The advice and guidance that you gave us along the way was priceless. What you two did for Lindsay and Matt's day was incredible and completely invaluable. You took little ideas that were spinning in our heads and made them into realities. There is no price that I could put on it that would represent how important it was. We will never forget what you did to help us create the most wonderful wedding weekend ever! Our deepest and most sincere thanks to both of you!"

“When my daughter told us that she was expecting her first baby, my husband and I knew that we wanted her shower to be exceptional. The custom-made invitations and centerpieces that Debbie and Joanne created were adorable! We know that her shower was unique for her, her husband and baby. I loved that I was able to enjoy the shower while Joanne and Debbie were behind the scenes orchestrating the event. Thank you Cheers! What a gorgeous event!”

“When we first started planning the wedding, I was so excited to make decisions and plan an amazing ceremony and reception. As the decisions piled up, my mom, my husband, and myself decided we needed some professional help. Cheers Design & Event Planning was the best decision that we could have made. They helped create the wedding of our dreams. Joanne and Debbie are so creative and very professional (but trust me, they know how to make it fun). They were able to walk us through all of our wedding decisions, and create not only a beautiful but completely stress free final product."

“I had the pleasure of working Cheers at a 60th birthday celebration I held for my husband.  I cannot say enough about the Joanne and her group and how they handled the event.  I did not have a set idea of what I wanted and after speaking to me they developed and executed a theme that was perfect for my husband.  Seven months after the event whenever we see friends and family they still comment on what a terrific party we had. There was not one detail overlooked and they were professional, fun and made sure the event was everything I had hoped for. I highly recommend Joanne and her group and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.”

~ Madeline A. Bacon

“Cheers Design & Event Planning helped us create a unique and perfect wedding.  Their service began with around the clock advice and problem solving. Joanne and Debbie thought of everything, all of our wedding details were discussed until we had what we loved, enabling us to relax and enjoy our big day. Cheers proved to be a critical part of keeping our wedding day smooth and joyous, helping with details and work that people in our family didn’t have time to do.  Our magical day ended with the reception of our dreams. If you would like to have an event that impresses friends and family as well as takes the pressure off you, hire Cheers.”
