If anyone in Chicago were to ask me for any advice in planning a wedding, I would say four words: Hire Five Grain Events.
I would follow that with three more words: Hire Them Now!
Planning a wedding is simply a daunting task… There are countless decisions to be made, details to literally obsess over, logistics you’ve had the foresight to plan for, logistics that you didn’t know you needed to plan for that you realize you REALLY need to plan for, lots of people to accommodate: all in the pursuit of planning an emotionally-charged event that you will (hopefully – don’t hit the bar too soon into the night…) remember for the rest of your life.
So do yourself a favor and work with Joan and her AMAZING team who will make the planning and execution of your big day a dream. Do yourself an extra favor and ask to talk to JENNIFER – she was the genius who pulled our event off.
Simply put, they made the whole experience – the planning through to the event itself – sing. Jennifer was kind enough to answer every single email that we sent her (and we sent her a terrifying number of emails). We had a lot of very specific ideas of what we wanted, but had no clue how to pull everything off – Joan and Jennifer recommended perfect vendors for us each step of the way who made our crazy ideas come to life. And then in the weeks leading up to our wedding, we were continually impressed with how organized and thorough Jennifer was in making sure that everyone was poised to execute our event flawlessly.
And that’s just what happened – we handed the reins fully over to Jennifer a few days before our wedding, had an even more magical wedding weekend than we could have imagined, and everyone marveled at how effortless the whole event seemed.
Call/email them now. Seriously. You won’t regret it.
