Aloha Shari,
I can still remember the first day we met you! It was like a match made in heaven! Your matching grey VANS with Glenn’s, your awesome down-to-earth personality—-we instantly fell in love with you. Through the entire wedding planning experience, you got to know us, you made us feel at ease, comfortable and calm. We knew we could trust you and your team to deliver a beautiful...wedding! Although we are writing this pre-event, the times we’ve shared together were so awesome! Not only did we have you as our wedding planner, but we also gained a friend. We mean this from the bottom of our hearts. Many Mahalos from your friends from New York!
Much love
— Jeannie and Glenn
Aloha mai e Sensational Shari!
Just wanted to Mahalo you and your fabulous staff for the exceptional and professional job you all did at Jane and Carolyn’s wedding. WOW! You were such a cohesive and caring team, always there when needed, with smiles on your faces in all that you did.
It was my privilege and pleasure to be a part of your coordination action. I enjoyed your effervescence and aloha spirit. You deserve prosperity and success in doing what you love to do.
Much aloha to you and yours

 We had an exceptional experience with Couture Weddings Hawaii. Shari Dang is as good as it gets. She was on top of EVERYTHING every step of the way. She was also very polite and cordial and quite frankly, a wonderful person to work with. Our wedding turned out beautiful and I know it would have not been possible without her. Her service was worth every penny. If you are looking for a professional and exceptional wedding planner, look no further. You will not find anyone else who will put forth the effort that Shari did.   Walter and Tisa

I knew right away from your warmth and excitement that you were “the one” to help us with our planning. Throughout our many months of planning, you not only made the process easy, but you made it fun. It was like having a Maid of Honor who knew everything, took charge,did everything possible to make the process easier, made excellent recommendations...with grace, tact, and a sense of humor, all of which are crucial to wedding planning!
Your help with the selection of vendors was vital. Narrowing it down to a few trusted vendors saved time, and all of the vendors you recommended were wonderful. They, like you, went above and beyond to give us an amazing send-off into married life.
As busy as you were, you made us feel like ours was the only wedding you were planning. Meeting times were customized to my crazy schedule and you were always accessible and ready to help.

Shari,
Aaron and I wanted to thank you for being the best coordinator we could have asked for. You took one vision and made it better than we could have dreamed of. The day was absolutely perfect and you made sure everything was on track and on time. We are forever grateful to you and your team for not only making it a stress free day, but a day that Aaron and I will never forget.

Hi Shari,
Thank you so much for all your help with our wedding! Paula and Casey were both really great and we couldn’t have been more happy with how everything turned out. It was pretty stress free for us!
I think your day-of package is good. I will recommend Couture Weddings Hawaii to all of my friends!
Thank you again
— Shannon and Anthony
At first, it was nerve-racking to even think about planning a 110+ guest wedding over 2000 miles away. Then we found you. I must say, choosing you as our wedding coordinator was the best money we spent for the wedding. You made the process seemingly easy and fun. With you just a phone call or email away, you had everything arranged just the way we had envisioned it. You truly translated our vision with style, grace, and professionalism. You were so pleasant to work with and made every decision easy with your expertise. Even our family and friends loved you!
We are so grateful for your expert orchestration of our day. Every detail exceeded our expectations and our guests were throroughly impressed with all of it. There was absolutely no stress on mine or Chris’ part, and that is exactly how we wanted it. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day the best day of our lives! It wouldn’t have been possible without you.

Dearest Shari,
We want to thank you for everything you and your team has done for us. We are so thankful for your guidance and being just so.... AWESOME! You are so easy to get along with and with your fun and warm personality, we knew that we needed to have you in our lives. Paula and her team are FANTASTIC! She can handle any situation and make it better in a snap. The planning was so smooth that on the “day-of” I was so relaxed and calm. Andrew and I could enjoy the nervous, giddy, and excited feelings with no worries! We loved our wedding so much we replay it in our minds and video over and over again! We are forever grateful and love you and the CWH team lots!!
— Chastity and Andrew
If you are looking for a wedding planner, Shari is awesome! From the very moment I met her- we clicked. She is so personable and really wants to understand how you want your special day to be-and she and her staff make it happen.
She is so full of resources and if she doesn’t have a contact, she will find one. She works well with all of the vendors.
The wedding day was perfect! I was not stressed at all, because I knew she was taking care of everything! Shari and the Couture Weddings Hawaii staff are pros at what they do!
— Jenna and Zane
 We decided to use Couture Weddings Hawaii after I was in a wedding on Oahu in which my cousin had hired Shari and her team as their wedding Coordinator. I remember how great that wedding was and how smooth everything went. We decided to hire Couture Weddings Hawaii.  We got married on 6/24/17 and started the planning process about a year before. We communicated the first time via Skype and she explained all she would do and all that was involved in the planning process. My wife and I looked at each other and both instantly knew she was perfect for us.  We constantly communicated via Skype, email, text and phone. Our lives were so busy, but Shari was so patient and assisted us in making decisions.  We relied on her expertise on what would look good and which vendors we should pic. She offered a ton of suggestions. We were tight on budget and she always kept that in mind and gave us tips on where to save when we could.  6 months in to the planning process, we took a trip to Oahu and spent the week there with Shari going to food tastings, flower appointments, cake tastings, and checking out the venue. With Shari's help, we finalized everything. All that was left to do was just show up an get married!  We are so thankful for CWH and we owe them a huge THANK YOU for making our day so perfect for us. At the end of it, we gained a lifelong friend in Shari and a lifelong memory for ourselves and our families.   Chris and Rachel

 We worked with Couture Weddings Hawaii for our destination wedding on Oahu and we couln't have done it without Shari and her team! I'm not much into cliches, but our wedding was truly the best day of my life-a dream come true!  My husband and I hired Shari as our full time coordinator. Right from our first Skype meeting we could tell that she is very professional, devoted and more importantly, experienced. We quickly knew that we were going to be in great hands!  My husband and I are from New York, and despite the 6 hour time difference, communication was never an issue. She is available via Facetime, Skype, phone, email and text. When we couldn't make a decision, she was always ready to give us her insight. She was very professional in all our encounters, but kept things fun.  When our wedding day finally came, it was absolutely perfect! Everything looked great! Our vendors were awesome and the ceremony and reception ran smoothly.  Planning a wedding, especially destination can be stressful, but if you are in search for a wedding planner than look no further! Shari and her team are a perfect choice! Thank you Shari and Couture Weddings Hawaii!  Miss you!  Much love,  CJ and Brian
