“Donna is amazing! My husband and I hired Donna as our day-of coordinator for our wedding day on August 12. Our intimate ceremony was held at Thacher Park in the afternoon and our reception at Loft 433 in Troy in the evening. We hired Donna to help coordinate both venues and the vendors associated with each venue so that we didn’t have to worry about anything… she was absolutely amazing! She made sure everything flowed smoothly, met us at Thacher Park to preview the location of the ceremony, and also attended the final meeting/walkthrough with us at Loft 433. Donna is organized, communicative, and caring! We would definitely hire Donna again for any future events!”

“Donna and her team did a phenomenal job for my daughter’s “rodeo theme” high school graduation party. I was able to enjoy the event, socialize with everyone, and take in every moment! From planning, set-up, help during the event, and clean up Donna was available to guide me through everything without the stress I would have had if I had done everything alone. Thank you!”

“I recently booked my sons graduation party with On The Go Concierge…BEST decision EVER! Think of it as an extra set of hands. Once the party started at 2pm, I literally walked around socializing with all of our guests. Although I had much of the decorating done, Jennifer helped with last minute things…balloons, food set up and was just pleasant to work with. She made sure things were flowing smoothly inside with all of the food so that I could spend time making memories instead of being in the kitchen or cleaning up after people. I am so happy that a friend of mine told me about On The Go Concierge!”

“Donna was really great to work with. She kept in touch constantly with me and asked for updates to make sure she knew what was going on. We had a hurricane the weekend of the wedding but she was still on time and was able to set up everything even while I was running around.”

“Amazing Wedding Coordinator. Donna was a lifesaver! She was amazing during our covid wedding, handled every small detail and when my father in law went missing, she tracked him down to make everything smooth again. I’m very organized so I thought maybe I could do my wedding without a coordinator but after all of the questions Donna asked, I realized I never would have thought of certain things. She was professional, reasonable, organized, patient and we’re so happy to have had her on our day!”
– Kelsey (Married on 6/12/21)
“Donna was great! We hired Donna as our day of coordinator and she made our wedding day seamless! As the bride, it was great to know that she handled everything on our wedding day so I could relax and enjoy the day. Definitely recommend!”
– Amanda (Married on 6/26/21)
“Amazing experience! If I said it once, I said it a million times; Donna and On The Go Events was the BEST thing that we spent money on during the entire wedding process! My schedule is unpredictable, and I was trying to plan a wedding from several states away. Donna helped not only with the day-of events (so I never had to worry about a thing), but also helped coordinate our vendors, visited different sites, found places for my husband and I to get ready, and helped make every unique aspect of our wedding come together seamlessly. We grew so close during the process, that people thought she was a family member! I would absolutely recommend her to any other bride, and am so grateful for my experience!”

“Best Wedding Investment ever! As the mother of a very organized bride, I can honestly say that using Donna from On The Go Concierge & Events was one expense that was worth every penny and more. Donna was our Wedding Coordinator and she kept everything and everyone on task and on time. No worries about rouge vendors or last minute details; Donna had every possibility covered. She coordinated details thoroughly with every vendor, venue and even the church. She was professional yet warm and understanding. She was creative in ways that we never expected, and when all was said and done, this wedding will be talked about for years! There was not a single thing came up wrong! Every guest was satisfied. From the perspective of the mother of the bride, if you’re planning a wedding or your child is, do yourself a favor and include On The Go. You’ll have a stress free event and probably make a lifetime friend.”

“My daughter was married at the Adelphi Hotel in Saratoga Springs. I recently called Donna, the owner of On The Go Concierge and asked for her help in putting together 75 gift bags. I didn’t leave her a lot of time but Donna had outstanding ideas on how to customize the bags with a Saratoga theme as many of the guests were from out of town. They were excited to get welcome bags with contents from the area: Death Wish Coffee, Saratoga water, Saratoga Chips, Saratoga Olive Oil, Saratoga Spices, Chocolate, koozies, and a lot more. The bags were customized to the wedding colors and beautifully put together. I can’t say enough about Donna’s assistance in this process as we had no idea what we really wanted to do –we just knew we wanted 75 gift bags! She sent lots of ideas and photos. She also included maps of the area so our out-of-town guests could navigate their way around. Donna delivered the bags to the rehearsal venue, saving us the worry of having to pick them up. When I got there and saw them, I knew we had made the right decision. I would use On The Go Concierge again any time! Definitely call her if you have the need for gift bags for a wedding!!! I know she can provide bags for many other occasions as well. She is a top shelf person to work with.”

“Donna was amazing to work with from start to finish! She helped us coordinate our wedding BBQ reception. Our guests had a great time. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for help with wedding coordination, bartending services, or any event planning in general. Thanks again!”
– Amberly B
“Donna was amazing! I originally called her because we were looking for someone to barbecue for a very large outdoor party. She delivered! The food came out great, and it allowed my husband to enjoy the party and not be stuck all day behind the grill!
Donna and her assistant came to help with set-up, food service, and clearing. We even had a bartender! I did not have to do anything! She came to my house a few days before the party to discuss layout, set-up and the flow for the party! This was great because she knew before arriving for the party where everything that was needed for the party was located!
It really was wonderful that I didn’t have to worry about anything! Donna took care of everything during the party!”

“Donna did an AMAZING job with our destination rehearsal dinner in South Carolina! We had no worries leaving our BBQ themed dinner in her hands. We had 75 people attend and everyone was raving about how gorgeous and flawless everything was. I HIGHLY recommend this company!”
“Originally, I said I would just do everything myself. Our backyard wedding would be small–including our blended family with adult children and grandkids. But we soon changed our minds and started looking for assistance. So glad we decided to get professional help because then we could relax and enjoy the day. Donna suggested a caterer, musician, photographer, and cake baker. Her recommendations were great. Donna checked in with us the week before our wedding to finalize last-minute details. Then she appeared on the wedding day and did her thing, to keep all “behind the scenes” activities rolling. As our wedding party ended the evening with s’mores around the firepit, Donna left us with a clean kitchen, extra food put away in the fridge, and trash out the door.”
“Donna was such a big help at our wedding! I can’t even tell you all the details she saw to. She kept scheduled events on time (That’s saying something considering one of our sweet ring bearers dropped a ring in the grass lol and then of course a search ensued lol…we found it the next morning!) She helped deal with our vendor’s questions and did some problem solving. She served our cake to our guests and us, helped with clean up, brought the cake inside for storage before she left (outdoor wedding). She even helped zip up my dress before the ceremony, while my wedding party was doing pictures lol. Long before the big day though Donna was such a help. The caterer we had hired had a serious family issue that he had to travel out of state to assist with, and Donna introduced me to an amazing caterer. We interviewed 3 caterers to take the place of our original one but we went with Donna’s suggestion, and we couldn’t have been more pleased. She knows great people. She was responsive to our every email. Met with us a few times to go over wedding day particulars. Even being so gracious as to meet me at the hair salon during a hair appointment, to go over our timeline and some entertainment details, when I was having trouble finding time to meet with her! She was kind and gracious and we were glad to have her in our corner for the big day.”
“I hired On the Go Concierge to help out the day of my wedding and it was 100% the right choice. I was so busy being pulled in 20 different directions there was no way I could have done it without them. Donna and I corresponded for a few months before the wedding so she had a good idea of what I needed help with. She had another engagement that day, but she brought along her associate, Teresa with her to our rehearsal dinner and despite the chaos there was able to communicate what I needed. Day of, Teresa was fabulous. She set up all my centerpieces and decor tables, lined everyone up for the processional, communicated with the DJ, and basically did anything I asked of her. She was SO helpful. At one point, my bustle came undone and she was running around like a madwoman trying to find me a safety pin. During “down” time she ran to the bar to get beverages for the wedding party. I can’t recommend On the Go Concierge enough. The peace of mind and ability to relax a little on my big day was SO worth the money. Hire them!”
“Donna was a “Godsend” to me and our group. She coordinated two programs for us which were both a huge success. One was a “treasure scavenger hunt” around the city of Saratoga, and the other was a walking tour of local foodie hot spots. Never could have pulled it off without her. We discussed what we had in mind for the events and she had great ideas, suggestions, and I know she put a lot of time and effort into planning… all which helped the events run smoothly and organized. We had nothing but positive feedback from participants. She is the best. Look forward to working with her when our group returns to Saratoga.”
“I worked with Donna for our at-home reception in Saratoga State Park after our destination wedding. From day one, Donna had put me at ease as I was very overwhelmed with planning another large party. She was so organized, had great vendor referrals (who provided discounts), and covered every little detail I would not even think of. We had met at the event space prior to plan the layout of the space, discussed decor and had a lot of communication via email and text. I was glad that Donna handled everything and I did not have to worry about a thing come the day of our party. She kept the event running smoothly and her staff was professional. If you are looking for someone who can keep you on track during event planning, offer suggestions, and allow peace of mind for your big event, Donna is the person to go to. You will not be disappointed as she exceeded our expectations!”
“Donna at On The Go Concierge & Events helped us with our product launch party in April 2018 at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs We’re very pleased with the services that she provided. Her expertise and experience was a huge asset for us during the planning phase, prepping, and on the day of the event. We would not hesitate to recommend her as we certainly plan on hiring Donna for future events!”
“Donna was a joy to work with! Prior to our actual wedding day, Donna assisted with some last minute vendors, such as cocktail hour food, drink servers, and rentals for tables and chairs. We met up with Donna at our venue beforehand as well so we could explain what we were trying to do with the set up and a walk through of the day. Donna was a huge help on the day of the wedding. We had a fairly DIY wedding at an outdoor venue in our town so I arrived early to set up. I didn’t want to leave the venue without supervision (to go get ready) so Donna came earlier than originally planned to “watch” the area and help set up the rest of the venue. She helped throughout the day and coordinated with the vendors for our special day. She has a lot of local knowledge for those of you in the capital region/Saratoga. We were very happy with Donna and all of her hard work!”
“I hired On the Go Concierge for my niece’s bridal shower. This is the third time I have contracted Donna for an event. Each time Donna has proven that it is money well spent to be able to relax as the host and enjoy the event instead of worrying about the details. Instead of being totally exhausted at the end of the day I was able to reflect on how smoothly the day had gone. Thank you Donna!”

“On The Go Concierge & Events helped me with my twins first birthday party. Donna is very helpful, creative and passionate about her work. She was very responsive to all my emails, questions and concerns. She gave me some great ideas for my twins birthday and helped me with plan and shop for decorations which was also great. She was also able to find me a great cake person and balloon artist for the party. I would highly recommend Donna!”
– Paru T.
“Donna is AMAZING! We hired Donna to assist with my daughters grad party and it was more of a gift to myself than I could have imagined. Donna did much of the party shopping and planning and once she arrived at the event it ran so smoothly and my husband and I got to enjoy time with our guests. Donna was willing to do whatever we needed in each moment. She added a bunch of special touches that we didn’t even plan which were heartfelt and beautiful additions. I would absolutely use her services anytime I have a function.”
