The Party Gods - Be A Guest at Your Next Party!
I worked with Amelia Castro of Party Gods primarily as day of coordinator to implement my summer garden wedding. We met periodically during my planning process to touch base and she also helped with vendors as needed. I planned the event myself, but being able to touch base with her along the way was extremely helpful. I had a very specific vision loaded with tons of handcrafted details and needed a sounding board to bounce my ideas off of so that I could be provided with the practical advice that would help make my vision a reality. Amelia became a close friend I could share my ideas and get excited with. Her vendor recommendations are superb. My caterer and baker were recommended by her and my guests raved about them. Amelia oversaw the wedding rehearsal and walked everyone through their roles the day B4. The day of she was at my house bright and early offering her car to help carry items to the venue and provide rides to guests. Set up was a challenge thanks to me and my endless details but she rose to the occasion assigning jobs to staff and family as needed. She arranged for lunch to be catered in for the bridal party which was such a nice touch and so necessary. When problems arose (i.e. bartender bailed, facility manager was difficult) she handled everything with grace and ease. All in all my wedding was a great success...and having her there that day was invaluable. I could not have done it without her. Her calm disposition, boundless energy and ability to think on her feet make her, as my sister so aptly put it, a "Rockstar Wedding Coordinator". If you are planning a wedding, you absolutely need someone there the day of to get everything handled so you can enjoy the day. Expecting your mom or maid of honor to take on all the burden isn't fair. A day of coordinator is key, and Amelia's presence there made my dream wedding possible. Much Thanks to the Party Gods for being a part of my special day. Don't even think twice about it, hire her right now!!! Lilly Williamson, North Bergen, NJ 
The Party Gods are absolutely AMAZING! Their attention to detail is impeccable. They made everything extremely easy and fun to do.  They were a great vendor to work with! I would recommend The Party Gods to everyone! Your expectations will be exceeded exponentially. Y. Rios, Sweet-Scapes NJ
Amelia was great especially given the circumstances with our venue. She made sure everything ran smoothly and on schedule. She made sure our day was special and she was a joy to work with.  Debra, Rahway, NJ 
I met Ms Castro at the bridal expo. I forgot about it, kept her card, and thought I could do it on my own. I even enlisted the helkp of my mother-in-law and sister-in-law and cousins and aunt. Things get out fo xontrol mama MIA! too many cooks in the kitchen. I called Amelia a little late in the game and she moved things around to help me. Thank god. We had a group that would have been unruly and i don't think I would have gotten ANYTHING I wanted with all these people running over me. I am supposed to be the HAPPY BRIDE! Amelia was in control- and when my groomsman forgot the license, AMELIA ran and got it. She's like that movie "Wedding Planner" with jennifer Lopez. She has contacts everywhere and ideas that are so creative. I was remiss to think I could have done it without her. Thank you party Gods. Thank you thank you!!! Annie Cooper
great service i would use Ameila again.  John Giannone, Giannone Liquors
You made everything very easy for my family to cleanup in the kitchen after the party was over. You did a great job and worked really hard and earned 5 stars all the way. Thanks again for your help...hope we see you again for our next event in the future. Alice, Bogota, New Jersey
Amelia is amazing, she truly does everything in her power to WOW her clients! She is full of energy and great ideas! We would recommend her to anyone and you will love her! Julian Romero, Majestic Entertainment
I have used the Party Gods several times and they never disappoint!! I had a party for 25 people at my house and the staff that they sent to me was excellent!! They were on time, very professional and they went above and beyond what I was expecting...Jill Rosen, Morristown, NJ  
"We had the good fortune of engaging the services of The Party Gods for planning and coordinating our 50th anniversary party.  This was a major event for us, with approximately 125 guests, plus music, for a Chinese buffet dinner.  From the outset, Amelia put our minds at rest, planning the sequence of events at the party, including the speeches, video, and games, as well as the dinner courses.  She also provided a list of all the items to be obtained in advance, minimizing any last minute rushing.  Her staff of servers were experienced and courteous, and always in the right places, doing the right things at the right times.   In addition to all the usual complications for such an event, Amelia and her staff had to conform to the special preparation and food handling requirements associated with a strictly (Glatt) Kosher affair.  All details and activities -- from setup to cleanup -- went smoothly, allowing my wife and I to fully enjoy this special event.  Using The Party Gods was one the smartest things we have done.  I am not sure how we could have pulled this event off without Amelia."  Larry & Helen Slavin, Rockaway, NJ  

“ My wedding was this last Saturday, the 8th and I am waking up in sunny Barbados and the only thing I can think of is "wow - thank God Amelia was there". It was a trying day. The flowers were late - they weren't what I ordered - one of my bridesmaid's dress ripped and the photographer's assistant didn't show and then....the crazy WINDS! I was so stressed out HOWEVER - didn't find out about any of the other stuff until after the wedding! Amelia was in control of everything and made my day as flawless as possible. Our contract was only until 4:00 but she she stayed with me to the very end to help me deal with the winds - hair - make up touch-ups, pictures - etc! The Party Gods are my new "go to" people for all my parties! :) THank you Amelia - you're a lifesaver! Janine, Spring Lake, NJ        
" Money Well Spent! I used the Party Gods for semi-party planning, Amelia was my coordinator but their entire staff is equally friendsly and vibrant! I had a very small wedding in my backyard and ordered cake, entertainment and photographer and servers/bartender through Amelia. Not only did she work with me and my "picky" needs but she went above and beyond, working with the photographer and everyone else to make sure I had nothing to worry about. Thank you Amelia and the Party Gods! :) Michelle, Upper Saddle River, NJ       
"Working with Nurbia was a wonderful experience. She made the party run so smoothly. Every time I turned around she had placed out new dishes and had cleaned up other dishes. She was very warm and friendly with the guest. We had 30 ppl to our house for a birthday party. When Nurbia left, the kitchen was completely cleaned and I had nothing to do before going to bed. I would recommend them to anyone having a party" Thanks Nurbia!  
Jaquelyn, Teaneck, NJ
ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT THE PARTY GODS WILL BE THE ONES THAT I WILL CALL TO MAKE AN EVENT A MEMORABLE ONE. My 25th Wedding Anniversary was a day to remember. Thank you Nurbia, for making me feel like a true are the best Ever! You are excellent in what you do! See you at my daughter's wedding. Sue, Short Hills, NJ  
I had a dinner party back in December and had Nurbia as a server, she is absolutely fantastic! I had 45 people in my home and she made sure everyone was happy at all times! She got there early and didn't leave until every little crumb was taken care of and the place was spic and span. That was more than I thought I paid for but she assured me it was standard service! I will book them again for my next holiday party! :) Grace, Summit, NJ  
WOW is all I'm going to say! I was having a 40th birthday party for my husband and was debating whether I should hire servers or not.... I'm so glad I did! I ordered 2 servers and a bartender - all the girls were great and they sent me a bartender that was great with my guests! They also made a few pitchers of their famous Sangria. You have to try it! Have them make it for you to sample - you're going to love it! I was able to party with hubby and not worry about what was going on in the kitchen! Ohhh yeah, the DJ was awesome too! Everything was great! Well worth it and so cheap compared to the prices I was getting in Manhattan! I love these girls - Personality! Personality PLUS! :) Amber and Jason, NYC.  
The Party Gods provided absolutely fantastic services! Because of them, my wedding day ran smoothly and went off without a hitch! They truly made me feel like a "princess" . Anything and everything I needed they were able to provide. If there is one thing any bride should NOT go without it's services from "The Party Gods" Thanks so much to Amelia and Nurbia for maiking my wedding day extra special and worry free! :)  Staci, North Arlington, NJ 
These girls know their stuff! I hired 2 servers and a bartender for my daughter's Sweet 16 in March and I could not have been happier. From start to finish - they had it all under control. I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 because if I had knew all the services they offered, I would have gone with them for everything - it would've saved me a few headaches and phone calls! Thanks Girls! Susan G., Wyckoff, NJ
Nurbia, We can’t thank you enough for what you did for us, yesterday, at Jessica’s wedding. You kept us running on time and made sure that we all looked wonderful. We are looking forward to using your services again the near future. Sandy and Harris Tokayer
I already had a Wedding Coordinator but I hired The Party Gods for their Bridal Package - and I will tell you that it was the best thing I ever did!  I had nothing to worry about - NOTHING.   They had me covered from beginning to end and at the end of the night - Amelia even had my clothes laid out to chane into and took care of my wedding dress for me. I left on my honemoon the next day without a worry in the world!   Kudos to Amelia and The Party Gods for making me feel like a movie star!  :)  Carmen, Asbury Park, NJ 
I wasn't going to a hire a wedding planner, just couldn't afford it.  But Amelia made it all possible for me within my budget!   She threw in lots of great extras.  She let me plan everything the way I wanted it and  Coordinated the day for me but gave me lots of advise along the way.  Thanks to her, I didn't even worry about paying my vendors.    I danced the night away!  Thanks Amelia! Pat, Mendham, NJ 
Amelia was a dream to work with!  Her personality and professionalism are just a few things I loved about her initially but her warmth and caring about us and me, as the bride is what sold me.  In the end, I'm so glad I made the right decision!  I can't thank you enough Amelia for being with Scott and I on our wedding day and allowing us to truly enjoy our wedding day!  You are a gem! Ashley and Scott, Roseland, New Jersey
The Party Gods helped with our son's graduation party and these girls were on the ball!  They are hard working, efficient, friendly and just a delight to have in your home!   Thank you for leaving me NOTHING to worry about in the kitchen on such a happy and joyous occassion.   You girls are true champs, in spite of the last minute weather mishap!  Thank you!  xoxox  Tricia, Montclair, NJ
I'm so very glad that I chose to fight for my Wedding Coordinator!   Amelia was so reassuring and I don't know how I would have pulled through without her!  She was reasonable with her rates and I feel she gave me far beyond what my package called for.  All of my married friends were so jealous they didn't find her first!  Thanks Amelia!  You and your girls really worked beyond my expectations. Angela, Park Ridge, New Jersey
I met Amelia recently while on a Cruise where I was having my wedding.  After having a brief melt-down with her pool-side she asked me if I needed help and told me she was a Wedding Coordinator.   I thought I had died and gone to heaven.  Even though Royal Carribean does a fantastic job at providing staff and such for my wedding, I could not have gotten through the day without Amelia.  Her attention to detail is impressive, picking up things that I would never have and even suggesting picture locations and poses to the photographer.  Amelia - I owe you BIG time for interfereing on your vacation but thank you for saving my day! Desiree, Maryland
The Party Gods were the servers at my daughter's engagement dinner and they worked very hard to make sure everything was in order for the duration of our party.   At one point, it started to rain and Hilary and Elizabeth were able to save all the food and rearrange it inside the house in no time.  These girls are very hardworking and they are my new go-to people for all my events. Blanca, Bloomfield
I have an annual post-Labor Day Celebration and this year, I decided I wasn't going to do it all.  I'm so glad my sister-in law referred Amelia and her staff to me.  I had 3 servers, a bartender and a Grill Master.  My party was a succes and I was able to enjoy it with all my family.  Everyone commented how smoothly everything ran and my mother-in-law was impressed at my "staf".   Amelia - you and your staff are great!  Pencil me in for next year! Debbie, Parsippany
I met with Amelia a few months ago for assistance planning my wedding in October of 2012.  After meeting with her, my fiancee and I told her we really wanted a beach wedding but were on a budget.  Amelia referred us to a vendor down the shore as it would have been cheaper for us than hiring her up north. I was truly impresssed by that action of hers, as I don't believe anyone else would have done that - they would have just charged us extra.  I have to say that even though I did not book Amelia, her professionalism and enthusiasm stayed with us and  we now regret not having booked her.  I did however go back to her for the Personal Attendant for the day!  Jessica & Sam, Nutley 
The Party Gods were referred to me for my daughter's birthday party by a co-worker who swears by them.  She has used them for her wedding and all her events therafter.  After meeting with Amelia, I knew she was the right fit for me and I was right. Thank you Amelia for everything you did for Gary and me.  You are our new go-to party person!  Sujita & Gary, Edison, New Jersey
