Bridal Testimonials

“Thank you so much for making my invitation suite. Multiple people have told me they are the most beautiful invitations they have ever seen and I couldn’t agree more!”
S. Cockerham, (Tampa, Florida)
“You guys are great!!! Everyone had to call, text or email about how Beautiful the invitations were. It was so exciting. Thanks from the bottom of my heat!”
Belinda Costa, (Tampa, Florida)
“I was referred to URBANcoast through a friend in Boston when I was looking for rehearsal dinner invitations for my brother’s wedding. They were able to work with me to select an invitation within my price range and advised me on the copy, colors and overall design of the invite. The invitation was beautiful – elegant and to the point. I am now working with Soosie on my wedding – save the dates, invite, menus, place cards, floral, table design etc. to carry the theme throughout all of the elements. “
Val Salvatore, Boston, Massachusetts
“URBANcoast is truly the best! I started with my engagement invitations with another local invitation company (before I heard of URBANcoast of course) and got the worst service ever…slow turn around, never got things right, hard to reach, minimal choices and creativity was just not there…the last thing a bride needs is more stress. Then I was referred to URBANcoast which was the complete opposite and just blew me away. Soosie and Sam helped my crazy bride self through every step to help me customize and design my own wedding invitations from my “vision” to name place cards, thank you cards, table name cards and even a custom Key West place seating map (another crazy vision I had)! They are fast to get things finished and proofed, so easy to work with, extremely creative, patient and just the best! Words cannot explain how thankful I am for all their help! DO NOT GO ANYWHERE ELSE!”
Kristin Madaffer, (Tampa, Florida)
“URBANcoast has helped us turn our dream wedding into a reality. They are so creative in all areas and aspects of the planning process we would be lost without them. I would suggest to any bride to have [URBANcoast] help plan their wedding because it was the best thing we did once we got engaged!!”
Anne Slaughter, (Tampa, Florida)
“Thank you so much for all of your wonderful help. You are so talented and creative! To use your expertise with love and professionalism is a gift. The rehearsal and wedding were just very special and fun. I am receiving so many calls from friends and family raving about the rehearsal….how perfect and beautiful things were…every detail. I feel like I have gained a new friend.”

Within minutes of finding the invitations, she had matching dinner plates, napkins, linens and more. This is going to be the most beautiful shower. I would never do another party without Soosie.”

Charitable Works

“Thank you so very much for your assistance and vision in planning our spring fund raiser. The custom invitations you created were phenomenal and made a lasting first impression for all who received them. We couldn’t have done it without you and your creative team at Urban Coast. Your taste, flair, and attention to detail were so refreshing – I’ll never go anywhere else for my stationery and/or event planning needs!! Thanks again!”

“URBANcoast was instrumental in helping the Boston Celtics build the Shamrock Foundation into one of the leading charitable organizations in Massachusetts. She helped stage several major fundraising events and handled everything including creative, invitations, marketing, venue, décor and overall production. The events were top notch and perfectly executed. Soosie takes a hands on approach and strives for perfection.”
“URBAN coast helped launch Paul Pierce’s foundation and produced the absolute best events and fundraisers, which not only reached but exceeded his goals. Soosie was able to bring the worlds of entertainment, sports, fashion and fundraising together to produce unbelievable events while positively impacting various charities.”
“URBANcoast approaches all projects with professional aplomb……from the initial theme, to the creation of the invitations, organizing what needs to be done, to securing top notch vendors to overseeing the execution of every single creative detail related to an event! The One & Done Tennis ProAm that we sponsored at the Belleair Country Club was a classic example of URBANcoast’s professionalism. The event was a tennis ProAm that was rained out. URBANcoast had a backup plan in place. They moved the entire event and managed the entire transition with smiles. URBANcoast made it happen with style, finesse and dogged focus. We will use them again for our future charity functions.”
