Invaluable Service! The Perfect Wedding thanks to this team!
Anticipation Events was some of the best money we spent! From vendor management before and after, to creating a timeline (and ensuring everyone kept to it!) on the big day, to ensuring that myself and my husband and our families had everything we needed, the list goes on! Everything went absolutely perfect thanks to them. I truly don't know what we would have done without Anticipation Events. There were points in the night where my drink was almost empty, and another one would magically appear from Elizabeth or her staff so I never had to leave the dance floor. There was another moment where my husband was about to take off his jacket, and one of them appeared out of nowhere to take it! You cannot put a value on service like that on your wedding night. It's hard to articulate how many little details there are to keep track of on your wedding day, and it's so important to have someone else (outside of your friends or family) worry about them for you. Don't pass up the opportunity to work with this team!Sent on 12/18/2019

This is the first review I’ve ever written on wedding wire and likely my only one but I need to share how amazing this company is. We worked with Elizabeth and Aimee for our wedding at Thalia Hall in Chicago this past Labor Day. They were incredible. I am very Type A and planned most of the wedding myself and thought I’d have a hard time handing over control to someone else. This was not the case at all once I saw how organized and proactive Aimee was. She responded to every email, took initiative, and immersed herself in every detail, no matter how small. The team was so competent and delightful and the day of the event could not have gone smoother. If you’re debating hiring them and they have availability on your wedding date, just do it. They were amazing.Sent on 09/10/2019
Elizabeth is the BEST! Working with her and partnering with her on events has been seamless!
Elizabeth of Anticipation Events is a phenomenal asset your wedding day. I thoroughly enjoyed working alongside her. As a photographer I love meeting like-minded wedding professionals who are passionate about what they do and put their clients first. Anticipation Events will seamlessly coordinate everything from big to small. I highly recommend their services and look forward to working with again.
