BRIDES: We provide ‘month-of’ assistance, complete 6-to-18 month planning services, and create fully custom packages for your needs and requirements. Quotes are given after a FREE 2-hour consultation when we meet face-to-face so you can share all of your Cinderella dreams, visions and ideas with us.
EXECUTIVES: Don’t stress out your assistant! Let the professionals take over – we handle meetings, holiday parties, fundraisers, conferences, grand openings, retirement parties, networking events, and anything else you can imagine. After you see us in action at your corporate event, you’ll never want a social event planned by anyone else! We love to bring people together at birthdays, anniversary parties, baby showers, children’s parties, Sweet 16 parties, and whatever kind of occasion you, your family, and your friends love to celebrate.
As event professionals, communication and transparency are pivotal to our organization. We value honesty and trust with our clients. You can trust that we will always strive to actualize your event with your needs in mind, and that we will always be upfront and open about all details. Your ease of mind is our ease of mind! We share any discount or deal we receive through vendors with our customers, and will always steer you in the right direction.
Every Detail Handled
VENUE SELECTION: Our wide network of venues guarantees we’ll find you the perfect setting for your event! Tell us what you’re envisioning, and we will arrange viewings with top venues in the city that align with your goals.
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS: We sit down with you and discuss the general design concept that works just for you – we want to ensure that every detail is handled the way you’d want it to be. Logistics, specialty items, anything you want to make your event pop. It’s your vision after all!
NETWORK OF PROFESSIONALS: We help to guide you through the selection of vendors that will be present on the big day. Every vendor brings a different quality to the table, and we make sure that it’s a perfect match.
MONEY, MONEY, MONEY: We know that events can be expensive, but we know that you have a budget as well! Maybe the aerial dancers seem like a great addition to your party, but let’s first make sure that you won’t have to take out a second mortgage! We make sure that you stay within your budget as well as coordinate payments between you and vendors every step of the way. Custom budget tracking systems, payment schedules, and due dates will keep you level-headed, guaranteed!
LIGHT’S OUT: The event’s over, but your guests aren’t ready to go home! Rather than having guests choose from the hundreds of hotels in the city, we negotiate room rates and take care of room reservations for you. Your ease of mind will extend even after the event!
PLANES, TRAINS, AND AUTOMOBILES: Take another detail off your guests’ plates. You’ll be the best host in Chicago when your guests realize you’ve even taken care of transportation to and from the event. We can hire, schedule, and manage transportation details as well.
DON’T LEAVE A PAPER TRAIL: The invitation is the first thing your guest sees – so it better be good! We help you design invitations, programs, menus, and any other printed item necessary. And don’t worry about stationary jargon, we’ll take care of the communication for you.
RÉSPONDEZ S’IL VOUS PLAÎT: Bonnie from accounting can’t make it, bummer! But Grandma Shirley is coming and bringing a plus one! We manage the guest list as well as the active RSVP’s, updating you every step along the way.
IT’S DINNER TIME: Everyone’s having a great time, but the same thing is on everyone’s mind: “What’s for dinner?” We will coordinate between caterers and venues, helping you create a customized menu that will leave your guests hungry for more. Are we having a buffet or full dinner service? We’ll even help with display and serving ideas!
LET’S GO GREEN: The ideals of green gatherings, low-impact conferences, and eco-friendly celebrations can be incorporated into any social event, from fundraisers to conferences to parties. We love working with eco-conscious clients and have a solid network of local, sustainable vendors. For a farm-to-table affair or an event featuring sumptuous organic food, we will deliver a divine event, naturally!
THE FINAL COUNTDOWN: We’ve been preparing for what feels like forever! You couldn’t be more excited if you were a guest yourself. It’s finally our turn to turn your brainchild into the event we promised. While you’re doing the countdown, we’re the ones preparing for takeoff:
- Ensuring proper diagram/layout
- Providing seating charts
- Verifying final guest count with the venue and other event professionals
- Creating an event timeline and communicating with event professionals prior to the event
- Confirming load-in and load-out times with all event professionals
- Attending and directing event day
- Assisting you throughout the event
- Ensuring correct setup of entire event (tables, chairs, linens, menus, table numbers, place cards, DJ/band, florals, favors, etc.)
If there is any feature of your dream event that we haven’t mentioned, we guarantee that it is in our wheelhouse. Please mention it in your consultation and we will do our best to exceed your needs. When you leave your event feeling as pampered as one of your guests, then we’ve done our job!
