Helped plan and execute a dream proposal

Mallory was highly recommended to me by a friend to help plan a surprise proposal. She was exceptionally professional and responsive, and helped plan a dream proposal that worked within my budget and exceeded by expectations. I'm so glad to have had the chance to work with her!

Above and beyond... We could not have been happier!

One of the best pieces of advice we got for our wedding was to hire a day-of planner... We hit the jack pot with Chi Chic Weddings! Mal's team was incredibly organized, professional, and helpful. Mal was on top of every little detail. When it came to the big day, we were so excited and able to enjoy because we knew that with Mal's support nothing would fall through the cracks. Hands down, working with Chi Chic Weddings was one of the best investments we made for our wedding.

The person you choose as your day-of planner is SUPER important. Not only are they responsible for keeping you on top of the mountain of tasks that you have to accomplish leading up to the big day, but they spend the entire day with you. Their energy matters. You want someone who is upbeat, positive, who is making all the excitement you feel about your day even BIGGER than it already is. That is exactly what we got working with Mal and we could not have been happier! If you are looking for a planner, look no further!

Mallory and her team are an absolute pleasure to work with. I have yet to work with a wedding planner who is as dialed-in to the needs of a couple with such a calm, collected, and controlled demeanor. The wedding we led together went off without a hitch and was truly a personification of CHI Chic! Can't wait to work with her should too!

As a wedding photographer, I have had the opportunity to work with Mallory and Chi Chic Events on multiple occasions. This company sets the standard for professionalism, organization, and teamwork in the Chicago wedding industry. I breathe a huge sigh of relief every time I am partnered with Chi Chic, because not only do I know the day will run smoothly, but we will have a blast working together. Her clients always treat our team with such kindness and generosity. Mallory always attracts the kind of client we love working with, and it is always a pleasure to be on her team. I can't recommend her enough to those thinking of hiring a wedding planner. You will likely make a new friend in her along the way. xo!
