“…truly spectacular”

“Robin and Debbie, thank you so much for all you did for us for Emily and Brad. You were both an absolute pleasure to work with. We had so many comments about the reception being the most beautiful one that anyone had ever seen. It was truly spectacular! For anyone needing event planning help, these ladies are not only the best at creating a memorable experience, but are gems to work with.
We are so happy we chose them.”

– Todd and Sharon Nelson

“…don’t know how they did it”

“I was amazed at Panache’s ability to listen to our ideas and inspiration and make our vision a reality. Budget is an issue for everyone and Panache’ was diligent in ensuring that we stayed within budget. Frankly, I don’t know how they did it. Without a doubt, they were the best decision we made in the whole wedding planning process. I simply cannot recommend these ladies enough. They handled the planning process with ease and decorum and allowed us to relax and enjoy our beautiful wedding. I cannot imagine, ever, attempting to plan a wedding or major event without them.”

– Lynn (Mother of Bride)

“…enjoyed every moment”

“Girls, where do I begin! Panache was fantastic, my husband, father of the bride had only one request. The request was that the mother of the bride and the bride would have nothing to stress about the days before the wedding. They absolutely kept their word. Everything was perfect, beautifully decorated and all was taken care of, each and every detail. Panache not only did the decorating, they also took care of all the flowers. Again everything was perfect and beautiful. I can’t say enough and I don’t have to, as every person I talk to says it was the best wedding and reception they had ever attended. I can honestly say the same, about even my own daughters wedding! I was totally relaxed and enjoyed every moment of the day”

– Tammy (Mother of Bride)

“…never had a doubt”

“Thank you so much for all of your hard work. Lucas and I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to have found the two of you to be our wedding planners. I never had a doubt or worry in my mind about anything because I was always so confident that the two of you would just do an amazing job. Thank you for all of your kindness and generosity, I know that you put in extra effort that you did not need to and were just so generous in everything that you did for us. I know it was difficult to work with such a low budget, so thank you for making that happen for us! We are so excited to celebrate this special day and so much of that is because of the two of you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“…everything we wanted”

“The Ladies of Panache are wonderful! Not only are they great people and easy to work with, they made sure to make our big day everything we wanted it to be and more, without any of the stress.

– Lindsey (Bride)

“…how beautiful our venue looked”

“I am very proud to say that our wedding was the first for Panache’!! And I have to say our wedding turned out like they had been in the business for 25+ years and as if we had spent 10 times more money. We have had so many compliments from friends and family about how beautiful our venue looked. Make no mistake–Debbie and Robin know their events and I would completely trust them with any event in the future!”

– Carrie Ketel Opheim

“…take my breath away”

“You both did a wonderful job at Allison’s wedding. The photos prove it. They really show off what you all did. It was great to walk in and have it take my breath away. People gave us gobs of compliments all night long and ever since. Even the grooms’ parents friends from the east coast said they had never been to such an amazing event – and they were all 3 men! Best of all, Allison was happy. And we got to walk out the door at the end of the night and not even look back. Thanks, again.”

– Ann (Mother of Bride)

“…no hesitation in recommending them”

“The events that I have seen around Bemidji and surrounding locales have always been of the highest standard, with immaculate attention to detail. Robin and Debbie are amazingly talented, and this town is so very lucky to be able to call on their services. Panaché always works with their clients to achieve the best results possible, incorporating the vision AND the budget. Always stunning results. I have no hesitation in recommending them as the best in town.”

– Lainie Hiller

“…above and beyond my expectations”

“Thanks Robin and Debbie, you’re the best! Panache’ went above and beyond my expectations! I was in disbelief and surprise at your abilities to transform the church and reception hall to a completely inviting and sophisticated environment. My husband and I received volumes of compliments on your skills!!! You ladies are so classy and caring – I will definitely refer your services to anyone planning an event!! I am still in disbelief with how well everything went…. Seamless, elegant and CLASSY! THANK YOU—THANK YOU—THANK YOU! Forever Grateful.”

– Pam (Mother of Bride)

“…wedding of our dreams”

“My husband and I hired Panache to design our wedding the summer of 2012. I have to say that it was one of the best decisions we made, and some of the best money spent towards our big day. Not only was everything beautiful but it made our lives so much easier in regards to the wedding. Shortly after our big day we attended another wedding that did not hire a designer. Watching all of their friends and family be put to work and under stress made us appreciate Panache that much more. Not only did we not have to stress out ourselves or our loved ones, but we also got to have the most beautiful, perfect wedding of our dreams. They took care of EVERYTHING, including the take down, which made it so we and our family and friends could relax and enjoy our wedding. Not only does Panache have great ideas and style, but they are also great to work with. You couldn’t pick nicer or more genuine ladies to help you plan your wedding. We highly recommend them. Thank you Robin and Debbie, for making our wedding everything we wished for and more!”

– Brook (Bride)

“…took the stress off of me”

“Robin and Debbie did a fantastic job on our beautiful wedding. Their creativity and thoughtfulness was evident down to every last detail of the reception. The lighting, head table, cake table, gift table, guest tables… you name it!… were all beautiful and all tied into the same theme. I trusted these two enough to surprise me and to go with whatever they were feeling because everything they came up with was exactly what I was looking for and loved! I had a few ideas of my own and would send them links-(as I was planing from 3 states away) and they were sure to include and build off of all of my suggestions and ideas. They took the stress off of me having to contact vendors, rent equipment, and plan. They even found a wonderful pastor to marry us. We honestly could not have done this gorgeous wedding without them and I wouldn’t have wanted to because it would not have been the same! Great memories were made with their assist and expertise and all of the guests could not believe their eyes when they walked into our venue. Thank you both, you are amazing at what you do!”

– Kat & Chad

“…I am still hearing compliments”

“I just wanted to let the both of you know how incredible you both are! From the quick response, meeting with me right away and getting started on ideas, taking charge and letting me step back a little, the decorating -what you guys did, exceeded my expectations. I am still hearing compliments weeks after the wedding. Even the employee’s at the Eagles had never seen it look so good. Plus, it was so nice not having to worry about any of the clean-up after. We were able to just relax and enjoy the rest of the time with all our family. If you ever need anyone to give any recommendations, or anything I would be happy to help you out. I will be sure to let anyone looking for a decorator know how awesome you two are! Once again, thank you!”

– Ashley (Bride)

“…so thankful for having Panache”

“We were married this summer, and were so happy with everything that Panache did to make our wedding everything I had hoped for and more! I would absolutely recommend Panache to any couple planning an upcoming wedding. Robin and Debbie are so easy to work with, and did such an amazing job putting together our wedding! I gave them lots of creative freedom for decorating, and they did not disappoint! I am so thankful for having Panache plan our big day, as I was a student and my husband was living out of town, so our resources were limited. Panache was super helpful in answering any questions I had or providing ideas and advice where needed, with no pressure for anything. Everything was absolutely gorgeous and I couldn’t have imagined a more fun and completely stress-free wedding day! Debbie & Robin, I can’t thank you both enough!!”

– Karly Ackermann

“…unique and beautiful ideas”

“Although I was unable to go with Panache for my wedding (ONLY because I got married in WV) I have been to a couple of weddings/events that Panache has done and they are absolutely amazing!! Robin and Debbie are such wonderful people and are full of unique and beautiful ideas! I’ve never seen any of their work that wasn’t breath taking. I would recommend Panache to any and everybody.”

– Lindsey Richie Hafs

“…will go the extra mile”

“Any Panache wedding or event that I have attended has been amazing! Debbie and Robin are both very talented and creative. I have seen them transform plain, drab locations into gorgeous settings that are perfect for the event. If you want one less thing to worry about for a wedding or other event, then Panache is the best way to go because they will go the extra mile to astound you and your guests!”

– Rebecca Florke

“…I would give them 10 stars”

“I cannot even describe how AMAZING our wedding decor was.. Absolutely gorgeous! Robin and Debbie were wonderful to work with. Most of the time Robin knew exactly what I wanted without me even having to say it! I would give them 10 stars if I could! I would highly recommend them for any special event!”

– Sarah Lynn Stewart

“…great to work with”

“Thank you Robin and Debbie for making our wedding so beautiful! I 100% trusted to you to make the space beautiful and you delivered and more! Once you were involved it one less thing for me to worry about, and for that I thank you so much. Everything was perfect, and you both great to work with. We couldn’t have been happier with the outcome!”

– Stacey and Gomer

“…willing to do whatever it takes”

“Could not dream of anyone else to go to when it comes to weddings and events! Debbie and Robin are my absolute favorites. They are so creative and willing to do whatever it takes to make the event perfect!”

“…exactly what you want, and much more”

“My husband and I will be married 40 years next month. Our wedding was tiny and simple compared to weddings of today. But, what I have seen of Panache’ events, I would definitely have chosen Panache’. They take the time to make your event exactly what you want, and much more.”

– Diane Morris

“…simply wonderful”

“Professionalism and beauty go hand in hand with Panache Event Planning. You can not find kinder and lovelier people. I have attended a number of events entrusted to Panache and they have been simply wonderful. From flowers, table linens, chandeliers and candles….their talent seems boundless and I have heard nothing but absolutely wonderful compliments. Not only are they fantastically talented event planners, they also care about our community. Hats off to Panache!”

– George McConnell

“…our perfect wedding vision”

“We would like to take a moment to thank both Debbie & Robyn of Panache for their amazing professionalism and talent to turn our wedding vision into a reality. We called Panache wanting “just a wedding decorating” as we assumed we might encounter some difficulties with planning and decorating a wedding ceremony and reception due to our residence being Las Vegas, Nevada and wanting Bemidji, Minnesota to be our wedding location.

From the initial meeting, Debbie and Robyn assured us they could create our vision, and we could relax and not worry! That was a HUGE understatement on Panache’s end…Debbie and Robyn not only delivered on their promise for our perfect wedding vision, they went above and beyond to create and ensure our wedding was BEAUTIFUL & STRESS FREE!!

We are so thankful for meeting Debbie & Robyn! Our guest were wowed and amazed by the beauty and elegance of our ceremony and reception. Pictures alone do not serve justice for the: hard work, dedication and talent Debbie & Robyn put into creating our perfect wedding vision. We feel as though words alone can not express our gratitude and appreciation for all that you both did!! Thank you so much!”
