  • Wedding: September 2013

I used Weddings by Karolina as my day of coordinator – she was very nice, communicated very well by email, and was very adaptable as my schedule got tight close to the day of.  She did a great job on the day of, and dealt with some issues that I didnt even know about until the next day bc it was so smooth.  I know she also does full service planning, though I cant comment on that.  Her prices were about half of what other Day of Coordinators were charging, and I imagine her full service prices are similarly lower.

  • Wedding: April 2013

I used An Event Less Ordinary for my day-of coordinators.  They were less expensive than the others I spoke with, and they also offered a promotion if I booked early in the year (they’re running that promo again now — I just referred another friend!).  They did a very good job for us.

We used An Event Less Ordinary also – great! For a DJ we used Sound Decisions out of Milwaukee. They were excellent. There was constant dancing. For photography – we used Cathleen with Light Source Photography out of Wisconsin. Best choice of our whole wedding. She was amazing!

@sunshine1112:  I cannot highly recommend Jennifer from LK Events enough. She went above and beyond anything I ever could have imagined and helped me put tgether the wedding of my dreams in only 3 months!!! (I had a 5 month engagement but hired her 3 months out).  Look at my previous posts for pics of my wedding for an idea of what she helped put together. She was super sweet but very professional. She was very available, once came to a crazy meeting with my florist —I emailed her at 10pm, she called me at 11pm, and agreed to be there at 7am!!!! Crazy huh? We loved her soooo much! Please feel free to PM me if you want more. I dont know if the rules of the site let me post how much we paid but let me say this: I sincerely believe it was the best spent money in the entire wedding.

@sunshine1112:  Also, if your cake person doesnt pan out, please look into Cakes from Atlantis —she is a friend of mine and did my cake. Not only is she amazing, she creates custom cakes and does so for a fraction of what most places charge!

hmm.. $1800 honestly seems a lot less than average for Chicago. I’ve had friends use Maggie Rife Photography and Emilia Jane but I think they’re probably 3k (but you’d have to check to be sure.)
