There’s something wonderful about the word, ‘unlimited.’  It conveys decadence; a sense of boundless opportunity, placing all the best that the world has to offer directly at your feet.  This is exactly what you can expect with our Full Service Planning.

As a Full Service bride you are truly unlimited in every way.  We work hard to inspire you with creative ideas, find stunning locations, recommend the best vendors, and ensure that every piece of your wedding is flawless.  No detail is too small for us to attend to in this all-inclusive service, from romantic honeymoon arrangements, to memorable bridal party activities, to day-of coordination with a team of experienced professionals.

Let us dedicate our creativity, experience and enthusiasm to ensuring that you not only have an elegant wedding, but the freedom to enjoy every moment of the process.

PARTIAL PLANNING

[3-6 MONTHS]

In the final six months of wedding planning, visions can become clouded as you work to keep track of every loose end, every piece of advice and each creative idea.  With our Partial Planning option, we will help you to focus your vision, bridging the divide between dream and reality.

Through our online Project Management System, a secure, personalized website we can collaborate on everything from guest lists, to budgets, to timelines, to planning events.  This is the central hub, the headquarters of your planning, and it gives us both easy access to every detail of your wedding.

Your plans are already in motion, allow us to help you keep your vision in focus as your wedding draws near.

You have a vision of your day; you can close your eyes and see exactly what you want and you have laid the groundwork for a truly stunning wedding.  Our Month of Coordination is the final piece to ensure that all of your hard work is carried out with aplomb.

We will meet with you prior to your wedding to create a detailed, personalized wedding timeline and checklist so that our team of wedding planners will be able to execute your wedding with ease.  From rehearsal to reception, Visions will be your vendor’s contact so that you are not burdened with questions or the responsibility of an agenda.  Our promise is to free you to live your dream wedding in bliss.

Design Consultation

Finding your colors and style of your wedding can be a daunting task.  As a new bride, you have so many inspirational styles thrown at you.  At Visions, we help streamline the process of conceptualizing your design style. Making decisions and choices is so hard as a bride and we get that.  As Chicago Wedding Planners we will help you make decisions that will be cohesive with your overall design style.

Our first step in the process is to guide you through what style bride you are.  Many brides think they know their bridal style but are surprised by a complimentary style they didn’t know existed.

CHICAGO WEDDING VENUE TOUR

If you are newly engaged and at the beginning of your wedding planning process, we know how frustrating it can be trying to navigate the unknowns of the venues in Chicago.

Trying to find a venue that meets all your needs and is within your budget takes as much investment of time and energy as a full-time job. And yet, it’s where all your planning starts is with selecting the venue. Sometimes, just getting assistance with this piece makes all the difference for a bride.

Visions Event Studio offers a Venue Tour Session that will help you get started with the overwhelming task of finding a wedding venue.  

With this service you will save countless hours searching for venues that either isn’t in the area you are looking for, isn’t in your budget or is not available on your wedding date.

We sit down and do a thorough brainstorming session with our venue tour questionnaire. After our meeting we will have a full vision of your personal style and your ideal wedding. We then have our team start searching for ideal wedding venues.  

We narrow down the search and set up a venue tour of your top 5 venue spaces.  Visions will tour the facilities with you, reviewing food & beverage minimums along with contracts to assist you in selecting your ideal venue. We are with you every step of the one when it comes to the biggest decision in the wedding planning process.
