“…..I couldn’t imagine having an event without Gail…..”

I have had the great pleasure of working with GAIL and her company Yours by Design when I was planning two of my son’s weddings. Each wedding was very large and very unique to reflect the personality of the couples getting married. GAIL was remarkable in every way. She was always accessible. She is very creative and remarkably reasonable for the services she provided. She treated everyone with respect and love as she guided us in our decision-making process. She was there from the beginning to the end and became a valued and loving member of our family. It was a joy to work with her from the beginning of the wedding planning until the very end when we said goodbye to our last wedding guest. I couldn’t imagine having a major event without GAIL and I wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend her to you. Trust me! She’s the best!

“…..Where do we begin. My wife and I met with Gail to discuss our vision for our son Jordan’s Bar Mitzvah…..”

Jordan wanted a real Las Vegas club theme and my wife who is very detail oriented knew what she wanted it to look and feel like. Gail jumped right in and began scouting locations and found the perfect venue at the Bellagio using their original “Light” (later the “Bank”) night club space. She worked with Bellagio to also incorporate a beautiful service and cocktail reception in one of the ballrooms. Gail pulled in and coordinated so many exceptional vendors some of which came in from Los Angeles. It turned out to be an over the top event where our guests had so much fun. We continued to receive such incredible feedback months after the event. Gail found our videographer who filmed an entrance video that was simply epic. Gail worked incredibly hard putting in so many hours doing anything and everything we asked of her. Jordan’s Bar Mitzvah was an incredible success starting with an elegant service and cocktail reception to a party that was so Amazing. We are so happy we met Gail and we look forward to her planning our next Bar Mitzvah for our son Max.

“…..I would hire her again in a minute!!”

I would highly recommend “Yours By Design” as a party/ event planner! I hired her/them for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah and my husband’s 50th Birthday Roast and both were huge successes!!! My daughter and I both worked with Gail Amster during the planning and had a blast!!! She was extremely easy and fun to work with! She offered a wide variety of options for every step of the process from choosing the general theme, invitations, DJ, decoration vendors, hotel accommodations and down to every detail and then made them come to fruition! It was a spectacular experience and I would hire her again in a minute!!

“…..There is no equal when it comes to what she brings to the table and we are beyond lucky to have had her help and her expertise.”

Gail Amster is an absolute godsend. My wife and I began planning our wedding about a year-and-a-half before our special day and brought Gail in to help us as we both worked long hours. From our first meeting, Gail’s energy and attitude was absolutely magnetic. She made us more excited for our wedding and assured us that we could reach out to her about anything that we could think of. That access: Being able to call or text or e-mail any time of day, was just one of the millions of reasons why Gail is the best at what she does.

Almost every vendor and every venue knew and had a good, longstanding relationship with Gail. Even the few who didn’t know her, met Gail and loved her. Our DJ, who had never worked with her before our reception, has now worked numerous events with her. This goes to show how professional, respected, and well-liked she is in this field and in this city.

As for costs, Gail knew exactly where we could save money and how we could get the biggest bang for our buck. Her focus is to create a “Must-see” event that your guests talk about for years to come, and boy will she ever. Our guests loved the flow of our reception, the look of our venue, and the little details that were added because of Gail. She isn’t afraid to speak her mind or recommend things you may not have ever thought of (like an ice luge), but she won’t force her ideas down your throat. Trust me when I say that she knows what she’s doing but she will never get in the way of you and your dream wedding- She is the gateway to your dream wedding.

Gail helped us in more ways than we can count and we will be eternally thankful for all her help. There is no equal when it comes to what she brings to the table and we are beyond lucky to have had her help and her expertise.

It was “The Wedding” to attend.….

Stacey and I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for the hard work and negotiating skills you used in the planning of our daughter’s wedding earlier this year.

There is no question that if not for your guidance and direction, our event would not have gone off as flawlessly as it did and to be honest, with no drama! And that is the successful taste test of any event, especially a wedding.

It was “The Wedding” to attend. And for that, we thank you!

Where to begin…..

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Gail . She was there every step of the way for both my sons’ bar mitzvahs.
The decor was gorgeous, the food was delicious, the DJ insane and the candy bar was magnificent!!!
We can’t wait for my third son’s bar mitzvah because we know Gail will be by our sides ever step of the way.

Gail is a joy to work with.”

Gail is a joy to work with. She approached everything and everyone with the best attitude and always had a bright smile on her face!

She kept us on schedule with save the dates, wedding invites, and meetings with the venues all while searching high and low for the perfect photographer, videographer and florists for us. Our wedding was beyond amazing because of all her hard work!

The weekend of the wedding festivities, she alleviated any stress, went above and beyond to make sure all loose ends were tied and best of all, made sure we were having an amazing time. She also took the time to check in with our family members to ensure they were happy! Gail is considered a part of our family now and that’s exactly what you would want as your wedding planner.
Thank you Gail! We love you!

“…..I highly recommend her and will use her services again in the future.”

It was truly a pleasure to work with Gail Amster and her company Yours by Design. Gail designed, organized, and orchestrated all of my children’s B’nai-Mitzvah. She was enthusiastic, creative, and very dedicated to every aspect of the events. Most importantly, Gail was accessible and easy to work with. I highly recommend her and will use her services again in the future.

“…..Gail made the very stressful process easy and fun.”

After selecting the venue for our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah, we retained Gail to assist with all our planning needs. Faced with a myriad of important decisions, we felt it was important to have a professional guide us through the decision-making process. Gail made the very stressful process easy and fun. She jumped in immediately to give structure to the process and to create an event that was beautiful, memorable, and truly spectacular. She was invaluable in negotiating deals with vendors, in helping us to select activities that were unique and differentiable, and in making the event space look fabulous. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to use Gail and would recommend her unequivocally to anyone looking to make an important event exceptional.

“…..Best party planner ever! “

Best party planner ever! This was my first experience undergoing a large event and Gail Amster helped me through it, every step of the way.  As I sit at a local Starbucks, nervous and not knowing what to expect, Gail walked in with her vibrant red hair and her South African accent, the warmth just radiated from her.  I felt a connection, she immediately made me feel at ease and I knew we were in good hands.

Gail worked tirelessly on our bat mtizvah to make sure it was everything and more than we could have hoped for without a single complaint.  She has many incredible connections inside and outside our community.  If she recommends someone you will not be disappointed.  Gail is honest, hardworking and easily one of the best decisions of the entire event!  Once you decide on a budget she will keep you track.  For any extravaganza, Gail is more than capapble and will not disappoint.  She will help you navigate through the entire experiences.  Having Gail at the party was priceless.  She will keep everythning running smoothly so you can relax and enjoy the event.

It is wonderful to  have someone with you throughout the process.  She is funny, true, dedicated, and one of the most hardworking individuals I have ever met.  Best decision ever!

“Gail is warm, responsive, and dependable…..”

Gail delivered a weekend that exceeded our wildest dreams and expectations. From the very beginning, it was obvious that her many personal relationships within the industry would work to our advantage. She helped facilitate finding the perfect vendors who matched both our style and our budget. We never felt pressured to go with someone we didn’t feel 100% comfortable and confident with, even when our first choice may have differed from hers.

In addition to the main event, she also helped to coordinate and flawlessly execute a surprise vow renewal ceremony for my parents who were celebrating their 45th anniversary the same weekend as our wedding. In the end, all of the planning came together in the most beautiful and special event. Not only was the venue beyond gorgeous, but from the perspective of the bride and groom, all events were seamless. Gail truly went above and beyond helping to ensure all details were taken care of and that the event was everything that we had hoped for. We could not be more thankful to have had the opportunity to work with her.

“…..My children and I made up a motto/saying for Gail: “You’ve got Gail!”

“I would like to thank Gail Amster immensely for creating the most memorable event for our family. Gail did such a superb job of planning, coordinating, and implementing the most beautiful Bat Mitzvah for my daughter Ayala that was enjoyed by all! The guests are still talking about it, and can’t wait for our next affair! All I can say is that Gail will remain forever in our lives. I will be using Gail to plan all five of my children’s weddings as well as events for their future children! Gail is so professional, bubbling with positive energy and creativity, exudes confidence, and leaves you with a feeling that “everything is going to be okay”. (And not to mention her cute accent!) We also made sure to include Gail in the candle lighting ceremony, as the Bat Mitzvah would not have been the huge success it was without her. I know that each of our future affairs will all be a big hit with flying colors as well due to Gail’s vast experience! My children and I made up a motto/saying for Gail: “You’ve got Gail!”
(instead of “You’ve Got Mail”!)

“…..a true professional in her field.”

Gail recently helped me plan and execute a complex surprise party here in Las Vegas. It was to be an elegant evening with music and dinner reception at the penthouse suite of an upscale hotel for about 100 invitees, many of whom came from out of town specifically for the event. From debating the format and options, from designing the invitations and sending them, refining the menu and presentation to ensuring a smooth delivery I must compliment her for a wonderfully successful endeavor. Without a doubt a true professional in her field.

“…..it was the best decision I ever made.”

I hired Gail to help me with my son’s Bar Mitzvah and it was the best decision I ever made. She organized everything on the night of the party so I didn’t have to worry about anything and could just enjoy myself. She can do just about anything and does. She made sure my party ran smoothly. She was there to make sure everything was set up, made sure all the vendors were ready and the DJ knew what to play and when. I couldn’t have done it without her. And she does so much more, don’t have a party in Las Vegas without her!

“…..Gail really took the stress off my shoulders.”

Gail did an amazing job planning my son’s Bar Mitzvah on 12/14/2014. Having Gail really took the stress off my shoulders. She made sure every little detail was taken care of on the day and night of my son’s Bar Mitzvah. I was able to really enjoy every moment with family and friends. The party exceeded my expectations. I would not have changed one thing it was perfect. Everyone had so much fun, kids and adults alike. The room looked amazing. The DJ and his dancers were unbelievable. Gail has great vendors. She always returned my phone calls or emails immediately. She met with me as many times as I felt necessary. She made sure everything was perfect! Thank you Gail.

“……..I know the clients are in the best hands possible …….. “I trust Gail implicitly……..”

When I joined Red Rock Country Club as Director of Catering in 2007, I had to review all of our materials including our preferred vendor list. Gail was the only planner to remain on the recommended list. She remained on our list because of her attention to detail, willingness to listen to our clients while balancing realistic expectations, high quality details, professionalism, and overall organization that assists our mutual clients and our staff. Bring a planner or coordinator onto our property is helpful not only to clients, but in my position as well. There are also challenges if they do not know the property, staff, or understand balancing the expectation of the client with realistic execution for set up/details, timeline, and flow of the events, but with Gail I don’t have to worry!

Each time we work together, I know the clients are in the best hands possible. She takes what color, vision, scheme, and sometimes the lack thereof, and transforms it into the most memorable event!

I trust Gail so implicitly that our staff knows that they can go to her on day of for any direction or when situations arise that we need to quickly react. Her company is the one of the only that that I can whole-heartedly recommend because of her attention to detail; she is prompt when contacting our clients, following up during the planning process, and most especially, during the set up and tear down of events. Our Food and Beverage Director regularly comments on the level of service she provides when she come into our clubhouse and how she is always prepared, tidy, and work gently around our staff.

With a Private Country Club and our Members, our venue is not just a one-time venue. Often times, we will work with Member clients numerous times for multiple events and Gail understands the dynamic of a Country Club and how we need to exceed expectations not only for future events, but to ensure our Membership is well taken care of on their special days.

Gail has been my Jewish wedding/Bar Mitzvah go to person. While I have working knowledge of traditions and details specific to Jewish culture, it has been beyond helpful to have a planner that can guide the staff, myself, and even clients with the nuances for their events.

Hiring Gail will not only reduce the stress and work that is required pulling in each piece of the puzzle, but you will actually be able to enjoy the planning process and day of festivities! Your family and friends will have a liaison to answer their questions while you are able to mix and mingle and be center of attention!

Gina Putnam, Director of Catering, Red Rock Country Club

“…..hands down the best decision we made!”

Working with Gail Amster at Yours by Design was hands down the best decision we made! Gail made our experience so easy and fun to plan. She was very professional, helped us with every decision from invites to decor, food, the DJ, kids entertainment, venue and truly took every idea we had and made it possible, while staying on budget. Our daughter’s bat mitzvah surpassed any idea we could have possibly had of what it would be, all because of Gail. We are still getting compliments on how beautiful it was. We keep hearing it was the perfect party!
