There are just so many details that go into planning a wedding, and it really does take a village to make dream weddings become a reality. Let Jan and her team do this for you. Whatever it takes for you to be a guest at your own party and have the time of your life. That’s what you can expect when you hire Parties, Events and More.

Our promise — beautifully designed weddings and events. Flawlessly managed and executed.

Wedding or Corporate Event

Whether you’re celebrating your wedding or hosting a corporate event, my smart, experienced and creative event planners will make sure your party is seamless and sensational. My solid history of working with top Chicago wedding and event planning vendors enables me to make sure that every last detail is meticulously planned and implemented.

Full-Service Wedding and Event Planning

As a full-service wedding planning and event management firm, my team and I handle everything. We can begin working with you at any point in the planning process – from the moment you become engaged to a few months before the ceremony. My goal is to take the entire burden off you… I’m with you every step of the way.

You don’t have to worry about a single thing. I do that for you.

The majority of our clients hire us very early in the wedding planning process because they want us to plan the entire event, from beginning to end. Planning your wedding should be a collaborative, creative process to ensure that you get exactly what you want.

So I sit down with you and Iisten. What do you envision for your wedding day? From the venue to the tables, wedding cake, flowers, ceremony, music. and more. Every last detail is covered. I work with you to bring that vision to life and give you the party of your dreams.

I pride myself on recommending the very best vendor fit for each client, something I’m able to do because of the strong relationships I maintain with a wide variety of venues, caterers, florists, musicians, photographers, videographers and more.

My services include the following:

  • Concept Design to create your event’s perfect personality
  • Venue Selection
  • Floral Design
  • Custom-Designed Stationery Wardrobe including: Save The Dates, Invitations, Weekend Packets
  • Budget Planning
  • Menu Planning
  • Music and Entertainment
  • Hotel Arrangements and Room Blocks
  • Photographer
  • Videographer

Did I miss anything? Please let me know, and I’ll see if we can make that happen. I’d love to talk to you about how I can design the dazzling day of your dreams.
