12 out of 10!

Ali and her team were so organized & pleasant to work alongside. She was super communicative throughout the process & made sure all of the vendors were on the same page. I truly felt that Ali was excited and happy to be a part of the couple's wedding day, which is absolutely vital to a successful outcome in this industry. I also felt that she was very thoughtful and careful throughout the day, while still remaining assertive and getting stuff done. I would be absolutely honored to work with this vendor team again. 12 out of 10!

Stress Free

Ali and Rachel were such an important part of the success of my daughters wedding but remained behind the scenes. They took care of every detail and kept everyone on task. I know without a doubt it would not have run so smoothly without them. Highly recommend!!

You NEED Ali and her team!!

I can't recommend Lavish Designs enough! We met Ali and her husband in line on our flight back from our engagement trip. How often do you meet a wedding planner the weekend of your engagement?! It was meant to be from the very beginning! She was so easy to work with, handled everything with ease, and provided excellent recommendations. Most importantly, Ali and Rachel brought my vision/design to life! EVERYTHING was exactly as I pictured. I truly would not have changed a thing. Ali and Rachel prioritized our happiness above all. They made sure my husband and I didn't have a single thing to stress about. They allowed us to have the most amazing day and I can't thank them enough. Look no further and book with Lavish Designs! They are worth every penny and some!!
