If you're on the fene, do it! So worth it!
If you're on the fence, hire a day-of coordinator--you won't regret it! We were contemplating not hiring a day-of coordinator because all of our other vendors (reception venue, church, & DJ) were super helpful, but we are SO happy that we ended up doing it! It was so nice to be able to sit down with Susan beforehand to talk through our vision for the big day and review any details that we may have missed, and her execution day of was flawless. She was always on top of communication with us, and it was a relief having her as our main point of contact to coordinate all details with all of the other vendors, as well. We said this to her many times throughout our wedding day, but we felt instant comfort whenever Susan would appear because we knew she was on top of everything and keeping the day flowing smoothly! It was especially helpful to have her helping out since we had different locations for getting ready in the morning, then moved to the church, then photos, then finally the venue reception--while each other vendor was awesome for each of their parts and also helped keep us on track, having a day-of coordinator to act as a quarterback for all of the moving pieces was so helpful and we couldn't be more grateful for Susan and team.Sent on 10/12/2019

Leanne, Sarah, and Taylor made sure everything ran smoothly from our rehearsal to our wedding ceremony all the way to the last clean-up of the night!! You often times do not realize how many quests will turn to you as the bride with questions/texts/phone calls the day before and of the wedding... and they made all of that so much more manageable, and gave the groom and myself ample more time and opportunities to enjoy ourselves and spend time with our guests!! We had a large wedding party, but everyone felt attended to, was in place on time, and able to enjoy the night thanks to this stellar team!! They are very friendly, smart, and fun to be around... Definitely a MUST for any wedding in Chicago/Chicagoland area!! We really loved working with them and know that you will to :)Sent on 03/19/2014

Mick/Courtney's Wedding May 11, 2019
Leanne and Susan from You Name It Events in Geneva, IL provided exceptional attention to detail and a personal touch during the planning and supporting of our son and daughter-in-law’s wedding on May 11. We of course, thought we had everything outlined and ready to go with the events for this day. However, after meeting with Leanne/Susan, we quickly realized their experience and deep commitment did create that personal service and was emphasized on the day of the wedding. They were professional, but also politely direct when necessary, in their approach with the bridal party and parents, during the rehearsal at the church/day of wedding and with all transportation details to the reception. When asked to do the little things, which kept us focused on enjoying the moment, they didn’t hesitate to complete any given task. We highly recommend using You Name It Events and utilize their portal to keep all plans streamlined and on schedule.Sent on 06/04/2019
You Name It Events's reply:Thank you so much for your kind & thorough review! We were delighted to be a part of the celebration and are so glad we were able to help relieve some stress and allow for you to really engage in the special moments!
Leanne is absoluteley amazing! We have worked with "You Name it " in a few ocassions. Everything was perfect coordinated. You Name It team was very discret but very helpful in the same time. We totally recommend them to any wedding that want to be a succes!!
You Name It Events was recently the planner for a wedding at our Paramount Theatre wedding venue. After working with several coordinators for various events, I was extremely impressed with Leanne and her team. The amount of attention they gave to the client, and every detail, was absolutely amazing. There was not a situation they could not handle flawlessly. I was also surprised that Leanne was so integrally involved early in the planning process and was assisting the couple from their first site visit! She has a wealth of knowledge about the industry and really goes the extra mile for her clients. Leanne is a thoughtful and caring wedding planning professional and we cannot wait to work with her again!
We first met Leanne when she was hired for a friend's wedding and was reviewed as, "the best money spent on the entire wedding". Now, we work together as often as possible! Leanne and her team are incredibly attentive, organized, and professional. Leanne is an absolute master at event coordination, and her craftiness really makes her productions extra special. Her integrity, and dedication to her clients have impressed us again and again. We love YNIE!!
