Tammy and Dawn first met in the Kalamazoo Christian School Association, where they both teach high school. As the years went by and their friendship grew, Tammy came into owning Savvy Bridal & Formal Exchange. Tammy saw a need for professional wedding planning and design, wedding coordination, and wedding consultation at an affordable price, so she sought her professional training as a wedding planner and designer. Because of Dawn's years of experience in planning and designing themes for proms, Tammy asked Dawn to join her in this new adventure and Occasions by Savvy was born!
Occasions by Savvy is a result of Tammy and Dawn's desire to create Southwest Michigan's premier wedding planning service. To give you an even more in depth idea of what their vision is for Occasions, this is what Tammy and Dawn have to tell you:
"The bridal consulting services of Occasions by Savvy was developed as the logical next service to be offered by Savvy Bridal. Already offering bridal gowns, formal wear, tuxedos, and chair covers; we now offer to help brides pull it all together and make their special day run smoothly. For some, planning a wedding is an exciting and wonderful experience they have dreamed their entire lives about; however, for others the planning is a stressful and anxious time that can rob a bride of a joyful experience. At Occasions, we are here to erase the stress and anxiety, offer suggestions and ideas, and take care of all the details. We strive to serve brides in whatever capacity they desire from full-service planning and design to day-of coordination. Relax - we've got this!"
