SO MANY QUESTIONS!
Q: Do I need an event planner?
A: YES! You want to attend your event as a guest. An event planner has many roles besides the budget and design of the event. We handle all of the logistics including scheduling and deliveries for your party as well as overseeing and staffing the setup and breakdown of your event. We want you arriving to your party as a guest and enjoying it as a guest - not as the person to handle everything.
Q: Why is LD Design different from the other event planners in town?
A: We are a full service event planning company; there isn’t a single detail we won’t help you with. We are your first stop in the planning process and the last ones to leave your event. We will assist in travel plans for you and your guests, any correspondence, all design and décor, vendor selections, location suggestions as well as site visits. We have a wardrobe specialist on our staff to help with the perfect outfit or finding just the right themed costume for the staff to wear. Often times, planning a wedding includes more than the wedding day. We offer our services not only for the wedding day, but everything leading up to that day - showers, engagement parties, hostess gifts, bridal party gifts - we will help you with it all! There isn’t any part of the planning process we can’t help you with.
Q: We are doing an event and have a committee who handles the planning; can you work with a committee?
A: Absolutely! We love to work with committees - so many more ideas to build upon! Many organizations have committees to plan an event, and we enjoy working with them in creating a fabulous event for their organization.
Q: I’m a working bride; will you do meetings at night?
A: No problem at all! We work with working brides most of the time and understand your schedules. We are happy to meet early in the morning before you head off to work, during your lunch break or even in the evenings if that’s easiest for you. If you can’t make it to our office, we will come to you or meet you where it’s most convenient.
Q: I don’t have a celebrity budget; can I still do a fabulous event on a smaller budget?
A: YES! Every event has a budget, it doesn’t matter who you are, or what kind of event it is. Even celebrities have a budget they stick to. One of the first things we do when we meet with you is talk about the budget. After the budget is set, we then begin the process of finding a location and vendors that are within your budget. We have a great rapport with vendors all over Chicago, Los Angeles and New York just to name a few, who will fit within your budget.
Q: Do you do corporate events?
A: Yes, we do corporate events for small and large companies. We coordinate events for office & staff appreciations, grand openings, holiday parties or even a simple client meeting. We will design each event based on your company and brand identity. We will work with you or your team of in-house event planners.
