Wedding Planning reviews in Glen Ellyn

I told them about the event, how many guests, and the size of the tent we borrowed. He made suggestions on the table size and what would fit comfortably (round vs rectangle tables and chair style/color). He texted me pictures, emailed a quote and several phone calls, emails back/forth to finalize the plans. It was nice to arrange this somewhat informally as I was pressed for time so this worked for me (versus going to an office, signing, etc). We planned for 150 guests and his suggestions were spot on. They arrived and set up the tables where we wanted them and placed a stack of 8 chairs on each table. (We did not pay or request set-up as this is extra). The linens were plastic wrapped, looked and worked perfectly for coverage. The day after, three employees arrived (one was the owner) and they loaded everything up. Extremely professional and very nice guys. This is a family run business. I plan to use them again for my daughters graduation in the spring.

The actual house that is

representative was very friendly when my daughter and her now husband toured the house and during the planning meeting that followed months later. Issues arose though once the last payment was made. During the planning stages my daughter asked about taking home food that was not consumed during the reception and it was explained that food on the buffet had to be thrown away that was on the buffet but food in the kitchen could be packaged for her to take. When I asked the wedding director about this at the reception she told me she had never heard of this and all food was to be thrown away. I asked if she would check on this for me since we had 12 guests who could not come and I didn't want to waste unserved food. She did not get back to me so I found her later and she said they threw everything away. I then asked that she not throw away cake that had been sliced but to please box it so we could take it with us. After asking two more times it was thrown into a heap in one big box. Aside from the cool treatment I received from the wedding director, others beside my husband and myself, notice the staff was very unfriendly. The woman who poured beverages in the bar area seemed put out by requests for tea or soda (the only drinks she had to pour). We received another call this morning from a guest asking about the unfriendly staff. We were also surprised to see that the flowers on the buffet were not what we ordered. At

you are required to use their design service and spend a minimum of $425.00 on buffet flowers. In an early meeting my daughter showed the designer the color of the bridesmaids' dresses (light pink0 and listed the flowers for the bouquets and church arrangements. Again,

pink. white and a touch of yellow in the center of some smaller flowers. The designer told us that she would stay with that color scheme as well as put it in writing. Instead the reception flowers were bright yellow with some white and included giant sunflowers. This did not suit the color scheme or the fact that my daughter and several bridesmaids are ballet dancers and definitely wanted a romantic feel with

pink and white. We were told at this planning meeting that the reception flowers would be boxed at the end of the reception so the would be easy to carry and would travel well in the car. At the conclusion of the reception I asked about the flowers since they had not been removed from the buffet table. The wedding director seemed shocked that I planned to take them then told me they would not be boxed and we could have them as is. We thought maybe she planned on using these same arrangements for the evening wedding especially since they didn't suit our daughter's taste. This is something to keep in mind if you are planning a wedding there. They were large and awkward to carry and transport. Another guest saw this and told us they had their wedding at
Glen Ellyn Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
and flower issues as well. That bride told her final guests to take whatever wanted of the flowers but a sever came up and said she planned to take them to her church her the next day. She was then upset that guest did indeed take arrangements with them. Finally, it is important to know that
Glen Ellyn Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
employees do not help with anything at the conclusion of the wedding. Remaining family and guests must carry everything from wedding to cars and pack it themselves. This is awkward because people are in formal wear and it is important to note their parking lot is gravel so ladies must careful so their heels are not ruined. Again, a beautiful place for a reception but many things to consider before you book this place. My husband and I owned a restaurant and were surprised by the behavior of the staff, the disregard of my daughter's reception flower choices and the waste of unserved food. People who hire the services of this establishment shouldn't be treated as we were. We wanted to inform others of this experience so they know what they may face. I hope
Glen Ellyn Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
employees will read this and perhaps reconsider how they run their business.

Here are a few more concrete things that happened, roughly in chronological order:

- We signed a contract and committed half the $350 fee up front ($175). At this point, the coordinator for the service,
Glen Ellyn Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
, had been helpful and attentive.
- Once the contract was signed, getting any details or a response from
Glen Ellyn Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
became difficult. We literally went months waiting for her to respond to things and had to constantly nag her.
- Lie #1 - Shortly before our wedding she informed us that she was NOT actually the person that would be officiating. She apparently has people she hires to do this despite the fact that we specifically signed the contract assuming it would be her.
- Lie #2 - The day before our wedding, we were supposed to have a rehearsal with the unknown officiant (we knew nothing about) and
Glen Ellyn Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
insisted that we start this rehearsal 3 hours prior to the rehearsal dinner because it would take so long. When this officiant shows up, she says that she has to leave in 30 minutes because she has another ceremony to go to -- they lied to us and deliberately booked another ceremony far to close to ours and we ended up not even having time to rehearse.
- The officiant and the coordinator were not gracious in handling this situation and ultimately because of their bad attitude, having lied to use about who would be officiating, and why the rehearsal had to be early, we fired them and had to find another officiant ONE day before the ceremony.
- Lie #3 - After all of this,
Glen Ellyn Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
assured me we would get our money back
- Lie #4 - A month later after never receiving money and constantly dodging phone calls (I never actually spoke to her again she lied about being willing to refund us), she claimed she had an identity theft problem and had to wait one month longer.
- Lie #5 - After one more month, she lied yet again and told us that she would not pay us back and that because I wanted to purse a refund further, her attorney would contact me shortly. I was never contacted by anyone and I'm sure there was no attorney.
We have email records to prove all of this especially after she refused to actually speak on the phone. It was as frustrating of an experience as we've ever had with a local business and we're not hard to please (I've never written a negative review in my life until now). These people were just truly awful to us.

Their rep called after signing up for their free listing. Said we should try, yes try she said, our premium listings. If you don't like it, you can cancel. I told her I'd think about it. So, without saying yes or no. The next thing I know they're sending me a bill for the monthly charge. -Marked paid. They used the credit card I used when I signed up for their free listing. I never authorized that. They said I did when I didn't respond to their "confirmation email" within 3 days. I didn't know blowing them off and ignoring them saying nothing means "yes"!! Call me stupid, but not calling or responding means I'm not interested.
Bottom line, I did not agree to any services. I did not agree to pay for any services. I did not sign a contract for any services.
These people should back off and rethink their business practice of deceit and manipulation. If their product is so good, they should be able to
Glen Ellyn Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
it on the up and up like everyone else does.
Resolution should be their acknowledging no services were authorized or contracted for and therefore no contract.

Couldn't be more pleased. They met with us and planned the evening including the play and do not play list. They had great ideas on planning the evening and even visited the venue before the wedding to determine the best place to set up. They crested a Great Wall of sound and light that focused on the dance floor and not into the seating area where guests were able to comfortably talk and watch the dancing. During the entire event they were helpful and flexible. They keep the event moving and organized yet minimized their presence. They kept the focus on the family and attendees - not themselves. Highly recommend them.

We called Fantastic Events initially just to do some decoration for a last minute wedding celebration me and my wife decided to put together for our friends and family. After talking to them we decided to allow them to handle the logistics of making sure the wedding and celebration flowed perfectly. We had already contacted the caterers, band, photographer and minister but Yudi made sure every thing was coordinated. They did a great job and everything came off without a hitch. This was only a 30 people event, but based on my observations they could handle much larger affairs as well, plus they are very nice people to work with.

In the beginning
Glen Ellyn Wedding Planners Provider Name Locked
is very calm, friendly, and professional. He returns all your calls and answers all your questions. However, once he receives that last payment on the day of your wedding he is seriously MIA. So MIA, that it's scary! I was so nervous thinking that maybe he lost all our footage and was just too afraid to tell us. Finally after 7 months we received our (okay) video and pictures. We were just so relieved to have something we didn't complain, we just accepted them. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. There is just too much procrastination, hassle, MIA, nervousness, conning, and resentment going on throughout this business deal to recommend him to anyone.

and his staff are a delight to work with, they helped us plan the menu for the event, were very flexible with any issues that came up. Staff arrived for set up well before the event and had everything prepared, guests commented on how good the food was. Everything went without a hitch, clean up was a breeze, they left everything in perfect order. Top Notch.
