About Karen

Hi, I’m Karen, the owner and lead planner of Save the Dates by Karen.

In my happy world, my heart soars for a delicious plate of cake, the perfectly-cool-but-not-exactly-cold feel of fresh air in my backyard, and watch all the romantic movies I can. I’m also a big fan of the colors pink, white & gray.

I have the best family in this world, my husband who supports all my crazy ideas and my son who tells me that I look like a princess every time I wear a dress. We also have a Yorkie-poo, Wally, who follows me around and keeps me company all day long.

I began this journey in 2011, after I graduated from my master degree in Hospitality Management in the Netherlands. I started planning and coordinating weddings ever since and can't see myself doing anything different.

I believe every wedding has to be memorable. When it comes to my clients, my only objective is making them extremely happy. Whether it’s by replying a question they have, helping them vent their stress, and handling every little detail of their wedding that will allow them to experience and enjoy every bit of their day – I love my job. That is one of my favorite #hashtag for Instagram, actually.

When I tell people I’m a wedding planner, they always say two things: “that must be really fun” and it really, really is; “that must be so stressful” and it really, really isn't for me. (weird, I know)
