    You should strongly consider a DOC

    Trisha from Liven It Up Events was just what the doctor ordered for my wedding day. I am a pretty typical type A bride, so I was pretty good at the whole wedding planning thing, making lists, checking reviews, setting up vendor meetings and booking them, but I knew in order to enjoy my day to the fullest I was going to need a day of coordinator. There is no way I would be able to relax on my wedding day if I had to check on every vendor and make sure they were there and doing what they were supposed to be doing and also getting the ceremony and reception spaces set up. No way and no thank you. I had a good feeling about Trisha from our initial phone interview. She has this presence in her voice that says, “I’ve got this, don’t worry”. She is a great mix of being both professional and friendly. Your day of coordination actually starts about 4 months out where you have your initial meeting to gather information about your big day and get her started on making your timeline. The next meeting comes a few weeks before the wedding to do a walkthrough at your venue and finalize things. Trisha was so knowledgeable at the walkthrough and it was very comforting to hear everything coming together. Trisha also attended our rehearsal and she helped to get everyone prepared for what was going to happen the next day. That was so helpful because we weren’t getting married in a church or using a professional officiant so without her we would’ve been lost. Day of she was great and had an assistant with her, Lora, who was also very helpful. Trisha was often running back and forth between me and my groom and checking in with vendors to make sure everything was happening that should’ve been. As far as I know there were no problems on my wedding day, and that is exactly why I hired a DOC. Even if there were issues I never knew about them and I was able to relax, as much as a bride can. Thank you again Lora and Trisha!

    We loved working with Lisa

    After a few friends of ours hired (and loved) Liven It Up for their weddings, we inquired and were soon paired up with Lisa Wandel.

    We met with Lisa a few months before our wedding to hammer down our timeline. Lisa was friendly, professional and had no problem answering all of our questions. Her attention to detail is incredible and she helped us nail down specifics that we hadn't even thought of! Lisa is very responsive and approachable - we truly thought we were working alongside a friend the entire time. On our wedding day, Lisa was prompt and made the entire day run flawlessly. She even picked up glass with her bare hands when someone broke a candle holder!!

    My wife and I were able to enjoy the day with our family and friends because we knew that with Lisa there, everything would go smoothly - and it did! Lisa was truly a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her!

    an absolute dream!

    Kim Weinberg from Liven It Up was nothing short of a miracle worker! Her communication was impeccable and it did not seem as if I ever had to lift a finger. Working with her was a pleasure- she is respectful and helpful, but most importantly, she is so much fun. I debated hiring a wedding planner, but after my initial consult with Kim, I was sold. I was not living in Chicago when planning, and Kim was there for me every step of the way. The entire process was stress free and she made it easy for both me and my mom. Kim is patient, as hands-on or hands-off as you want her to be, and truly made my wedding planning experience enjoyable. I will be referring her to every engaged friend I know and working with her for as many future parties as I can!
