“Sarah and Damon saw my vision and executed it perfectly! They were my wedding planner, decorator, and florist all rolled into one and we definitely reaped the rewards when it came to money having them do all three services for us. Over the course of the last year they have become like family to us!”

“I have nothing but high praise for Sarah Goude and the Regalo team. Sarah was helpful to us even before we signed a contract early in the process. She helped my daughter get the dress of her dreams well within her budget. She kept the budget on track and managed to attend to every detail with great beauty and professional details. Our event exceeded our expectations. Since the event took place out of town, I let Sarah know that I would need her to take care of all details. Sarah did exactly that, and all I really had to do was show up, put on my dress and smile. Thank you Sarah and Regalo team.”
“We used Sarah and Damon of Regalo Design for our wedding and it was amazing! I am a planaholic and Sarah was PERFECT in making sure all the details were kept up with and helping us create the day exactly the way we wanted to! She helped us find all our vendors, designed our invitations and took care of everything while saving us lots of money (AND TIME!) more importantly she did our decor/flowers and everyone raved about how gorgeous our wedding was thanks to Sarah’s incredible decor work! She and her husband made sure our day went smoothly with absolutely no stress!!”
“There aren’t enough stars for the feedback I want to leave for Sarah and Damon Goude of Regalo Design. They are down to earth people who are very nice and so fun to work with. Since I’m a medical student, it was so convenient to have a planner who’s also a florist and decorator. She’s great at all 3! They have so many connections that we were able to take advantage of and we actually gained back the money we spent for her services through the discounts we were able to acquire through her. She is so worth the expense. When it rained on our wedding day, she was so calm and reassuring. Anything I asked for, she made it happen. We got so many compliments on how seamless our wedding day was and she deserves all the credit. I feel like I’ve gained a friend and I would highly recommend her.”

“Not only was hiring Regalo Design the best money we spent in preparing for our daughter’s wedding, but we consider Sarah and Damon new-found friends! With me, the mother of the bride, in Chattanooga, and my daughter in Nashville planning a Nashville wedding, we needed all the help we could get. And Regalo Design truly came through in every aspect. From numerous meetings to florals, favors, and rentals to coordination of the day, Sarah was a professional in every sense. She took our ideas and added her own special touch. We are blessed to have found Regalo Design, and can’t say “thank you” enough for all they did for us on Stacy and Andrew’s very special day.”
“Sarah and Damon of Regalo Design were such a joy to work with. Because of Regalo Design, my wedding day was absolutely beautiful and exactly as I envisioned without the stress. Sarah is such a genuine person who truly cares that her clients have a special and care-free wedding day. She is also incredibly talented at what she does and was not only able to understand my vision for my wedding, but she also added her own special touch and attention to detail to our wedding. I was so thankful for her wisdom and direction throughout the whole planning process. I was thrilled with the centerpieces and bouquets she created, and the decor and atmosphere of my reception venue was something I could have never created on my own.”
“Regalo Design was a true blessing on my wedding day! This was by far the best investment we made in our wedding and I can honestly say they made our wedding dreams come true. When we first began planning our wedding we were in search for someone who was a combined florist/decorator. I was sure I would never be able to find both! Luckily, Regalo Design was all that and more. They served as our florist, decorator and planner and from the beginning Regalo put our minds at ease! First, something that is important for any event, they were organized. They custom made a website for my groom and I that had every detail of our wedding. This was great because we could sign on and see what had been done, what needed to be done and also we could share this info with other our vendors! We also had monthly meetings with Regalo to keep us on track. Another plus, they coordinate with your vendors before your wedding day so you don’t have to! When you get down to those final weeks this is something you will definitely appreciate. Even my other vendors raved about how smooth the day went thanks to our brilliant planner! One major perk of using Regalo Design is their connections. They can introduce you to caterers, bakeries, photographers and more and you know you they are quality vendors simply by the relationship they have established with Regalo. What does this mean for you? Discounts on everything! This means your flowers, linens, food, décor and all that goes into making your fairytale come true! Finally, I feel like the best and most important quality of Regalo Design is their attitude. This is a husband and wife team and they are truly passionate about what they do. I could call them any time I felt stressed about the wedding and they always put my mind at ease. They have a true eye for detail and their enthusiasm radiates throughout all the vendors that work with them. They treated my fiancé and me as if we were their only clients and that our day was just as important to them as it was to us. They are professional and possess a work ethic that you can only hope all the vendors you meet will have. I would refer Regalo Design to any upcoming bride I know. I feel as though no words can express to them how grateful I was that they were there for my day! If you want to enjoy the wedding planning experience, wow your guests with fairy tale like décor and save money while doing so, then you have found all that and more in Regalo Design!”

(I) can’t thank you enough for all your fantastic work! We got so many compliments on the just how smooth, and beautiful everything was. We threw your names around like a pitcher in a no hitter. I don’t really think we could put into words just how much we loved working with you. Just to have (our daughter) not stress or worry about anything made hiring you more than worth it. We really love ya. We will continue to tell EVERYONE about you.

Sarah decorated, coordinated, and ran the wedding reception when my daughter was married in May 2010. She was delightful to work with and I could not have been more pleased! She is resourceful, creative, caring, and far exceeded my expectations in every way. My niece is working with Regalo Design for her wedding in 2011 and I will definitely hire her when my youngest daughter marries. No reason to look anywhere else. The Best!
We hired Sarah for “day-of” coordination because we simply realized we would not be able to get the reception together on the day of the wedding. We had 300 guests and a bar-tender, caterer, music, hot air balloon, etc to get together while we were taking pictures at the wedding. We hired Sarah and she could not have been nicer about helping us out. She ended up being great because when my new husband and I got to the reception she directed us where we needed to go and got everything coordinated and even had us plates made up for us so we could actually eat on our wedding day. She really was fantastic and I recommend her to anyone getting married!
Wedding- November 8, 2009
“I was so thrilled to be getting married but terrified of not being able to pull off “my perfect wedding”. Sarah Goude was my wedding coordinator and I cannot tell you how much she did for me and my family. Besides making sure that all of the details were taken care, such as the DJ, the reception location, the ceremony location, the rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, she even took care of my flowers and was there every step of the way with me. Sarah not only made me feel special but also made my husband feel special. Mrs. Goude was very detailed and made me feel like a queen on my wedding day. I couldn’t have done it without her. I would absolutely recommend Mrs. Sarah Goude.”
Baby Shower- March 2010
“Nine months after being married, my husband and I found out that we were pregnant. Sarah Goude took care of my wedding and I knew that I just had to have her again for my baby shower. Boy did I make the right choice yet again. Sarah sent out the most beautiful invitations I had ever seen. When I arrived to my shower, I was so impressed with the set-up, cake, games, and food. Sarah even went out of her way to create thank you cards for me so that I didn’t have to run out and buy cards. (and they were self-addressed) WHAT A LIFE SAVER!!! Sarah Goude took the time to make sure that I was comfortable and relaxed. Sarah is an Angel and I was so blessed to be able to work with her again.”
Wedding- April 10, 2010
On April 10th I married a precious man. And I was given the freedom to enjoy every moment of it because of my experience with Sarah Goude and Regalo Design. Every detail, from my flowers, to the church decorations, to the rehearsal and ceremony were orchestrated with excellence, professionalism and elegance. Everything I envisioned my day to be it was. And the beautiful part was all I had to do was show up. When that door opened, and I walked down the aisle I was free to savor every precious moment because Sarah had taken care of the finest details. Even the ones I had forgotten, she hadn’t. I would recommend this company and Sarah Goude to anyone planning an event. Because I can assure you that if she is planning it you will be able to enjoy it.
Corporate Event- Summer 09 & Summer 10
When our ministry had the idea for a Vacation Bible School for women, we asked Sarah Goude and Regalo Design to orchestrate and oversee our event. From the meeting planning to the coordinating of the event itself, to designing and ordering our event t-shirts, Regalo handled everything with excellence. Sarah even emceed our event and brought an energy and comfort level to our ladies that opened the door for us to engage their hearts. When you do thing with excellence people know that you will then handle them with the same care. That is what Regalo helped us to accomplish!
Mother of the Bride
As the mother of the bride, I can say the only “WORD” to describe how Sarah Goude with Regalo Design took care of every detail of my daughter’s wedding is “AWESOME”. She was very protective of my time and so protective of my daughter. She had the outline of what we wanted and we had total confidence that every detail would be taken care of and we were not disappointed. Sarah went far beyond what we asked for or even thought about. She did a beautiful job with the flowers and decorating of the church and reception. It is truly a day we can look back and have nothing but wonderful memories.
Mother of the Bride
As mother of the bride I didn’t know where to begin to help my daughter with her wedding. After interviewing several wedding planners and event planners we overwhelmingly selected Regalo and Sarah Goude. Boy we were happy with that decision. Weddings are such an emotional event and so many things can go wrong and even ruin your day. With Regalo Design you can be sure that after all the months of planning, you can actually enjoy the day with a peaceful heart. There are only a handful of events in our lives that we want perfection and working with Sarah Goude is perfection. She will make your day so special and she is a joy to work with. There are so many details to think about and Sarah had not only thought of them, she solved them. Our family enjoyed our daughter’s wedding to the fullest with the help of Sarah Goude and Regalo Design. Absolutely the best!
Special Event Planning
When you’re looking for the best, Regalo Design is the way to go. I had the privilege of competing with Sarah at the Miss America Pageant in September of 2004, and not only can I say that she is one of the funniest and kindest people I know, she has a brilliant gift for planning and creativity. In May of 2005, out of love for her Miss America sisters and her beloved city of Indianapolis, Sarah single-handedly (and voluntarily, I might add!), planned a Miss America reunion and invited all 52 contestants (which included Miss America) to celebrate in the Indianapolis 500 festivities over Memorial Day weekend. Sarah literally rolled out the red carpet!
I honestly had no idea how amazing the whole weekend was going to be. Sarah arranged everything for the 33 State Titleholders who were able to attend from across the United States, and also for our reigning Miss America. Sarah coordinated all travel to Indianapolis and arranged sponsorships to include our hotel rooms, hotel incidentals, two large coach busses for our travel, tickets to the Indianapolis 500, a suite at the Indianapolis 500 and Indy 500 Parade Tickets (she even handled all the details for Miss America to ride in the Parade).
Additionally, for the 33 State Titleholders, she secured sponsorship for a Premiere VIP party with National celebrities, food and beverage for the entire weekend, a large banner with our contestant photos and tickets to the Black & White Ball (which was hosted by the Miss Indiana Organization). Not one to leave out any details, Sarah also arranged for two around-the clock security guards to travel with us AND she arranged for the City of Indianapolis to provide us with Police Escort. Looking back on this once-in-a-lifetime event, it is mind-boggling to think that one person did it all! But that’s Sarah. You are guaranteed royal treatment with her.
