For our poolside wedding in our backyard, Avant Décor provided café lighting, lanterns and uplights. Elizabeth recommended some beautiful options for lighting strung around the deck and across the pool. Four days prior to the wedding, rain was forecasted and we added tents to our backyard. Elizabeth and Melissa promptly adjusted the lighting the décor to include lighting the tents. All of the lighting was absolutely beautiful!

Avant Décor was absolutely wonderful with providing the draping and lighting decorations for my daughter's wedding. The ceremony was in a small 1890's church and the reception was in a pavilion next to the church. Elizabeth and her crew transformed both buildings into something so beautiful and amazing! The draping, lighting, and chandelier was absolutely gorgeous! Elizabeth was so kind and pleasant, and offered great suggestions to help with the layout and décor of the rooms. My daughter and I were in total awe! I have to say this company went above and beyond our expectations! I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends! Thank you so much, Elizabeth!! :)

Avant Decor did an amazing job at my daughter's wedding!!!! The draping and lighting turned the entire event into a showplace. They went above and beyond in how they draped the cocktail area just outside the reception!!! We couldn't have asked for better service. And responsive!!!---we had high winds come up later in the day after set-up that started blowing over the wedding arch. They came back out and re-secured the arch in plenty of time for the afternoon ceremony! I would recommend them in a heartbeat!

Elizabeth was extremely helpful in the decision making process for draping and lighting. I was very unsure of what to do and she showed me multiple different options. She went above and beyond to ensure things were correct for our wedding. I was completely confident and at ease that Avant Decor would execute the decoration how I wanted.

Avant Decor was great to work with. They did the ceiling drapery for the reception site and then also helped us out by providing some additional drapery at the site of the ceremony. They did a beautiful job at both locations. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful the drapery was. They were very professional, helpful, and responsive. I highly recommend them.

Working with Avant was a great decision. My husband and I spoke with lots of different decor people, but the staff at Avant made us feel most comfortable. They even arranged with another company for us so that we could have a midnight balloon drop! Everything looked amazing and the draping and lights really changed the feel of the room. We couldn't be happier with the services we received!

We rented from Avant Décor for my wedding. My number one request for my wedding was ceiling draping with twinkle lights which was a great decision as it was a beautiful touch to the wedding venue. We also had one wall of a white back drop with navy swag and twinkle lights which was used as an alter area for the ceremony. Then that wall was the background for the head table. It definitely brought an elegant warm touch to dress things up. They also offered up lighting but was quite costly compared to what the DJ offered. We were very happy with the entire process which was only 1 meeting at the venue and a few emails!

Avant Decor did an amazing job on my wedding day! Avant Decor provided a crystal ceremony arch, head table drapery, and ceiling drapery for our event. It really transformed the space. Elizabeth was wonderful to work with. She provided a lot of options to choose from and gave recommendations when necessary. I had various people and vendors comment on how beautiful it looked! Lastly, Avant Decor does all of the set up and take down. Everything had to be out of our venue by 12 AM and they came back that night to take everything down. I would recommend Avant Decor for every bride!

I loved working with Avant Décor!!!

I had called around to many places and was looking for a company that would do the lighting for my wedding. When I told the vendors what I was looking for and I was quoted very high prices that were not in my budget. I decided to move forward without lighting. Then a few months before my wedding I told the coordinator of the venue I was using my original lighting idea and she gave me Elizabeth’s information and told me to call her. Elizabeth at Avant Décor was wonderful. She was so easy to work with and within the price range I was looking for. The lights were beautiful and gave our wedding a glowing outdoor look. Our guests just loved it! I have already recommended her to many other brides looking for wedding décor.

Absolutely wonderful vendor! I had seen the work of other companies who do draping at my venue when I was still in the process of picking a venue. Other companies don't seem to get the draping to look even throughout the venue. Avant Décor had completely even draping(draping was not bunching in some places and scant in others), and they're draping was nicely pleated.
Also they are great to work with. Elizabeth from Avant met me at my venue to see it and make recommendations for me. They are also prompt with emails. Great overall experience!

Elizabeth at Avant Decor was wonderful. Our first meeting was set up quickly and she provided us with a ton of examples of ceiling draping - including pictures of what it would look like in our venue! When we arrived at our reception, the draping looked beautiful! They even added some draping above the head table as a nice surprise! The draping added just enough elegance to an already beautiful venue.

We used Avant for the ceiling draping and lighting. I was really impressed with their flexibility. We got married over Memorial weekend and there were weddings at our reception venue the nights before and after ours. All 3 of us couples chose this vendor and they split the contract 3 ways so we were each responsible for our own portion (instead of 1 fronting it all and waiting to be reimbursed).

Elizabeth made an extra effort to acquire lace swags because we did not want organza and was creative with the ideas and look we wanted. Elizabeth worked with our florist to create an orb of baby's breath for the dance floor for something different that lanterns. She was very sensitive to our budget and did not try to have us buy more than was we wanted.

I rented cafe lights for my wedding reception and couldn't be more pleased with the way everything turned out. The lights were strung from the second floor balconies in the atrium where I held my reception and I was blown away with how beautiful they looked - it was exactly how I had pictured it in my head! I received so many compliments from guests, saying that they felt like they were outside at an Italian cafe.

The entire rental process was incredibly seamless, prices were competitive and both Elizabeth and Melissa were great to work with! Overall, I had a great experience with Avant Decor and would highly recommend using them for your wedding (or any event).

I called Avant Decor rather last minute as we decided we wanted some lighting inside our reception venue. They said they could do it, no problem. They strung the lights while we were setting up the rest of the venue the day before the wedding and reception. They had to work around us and all the tables and chairs. They came in, got right to work and were done in no time. We hardly knew they were there! I also called around to other companies to do this job and they were the best price and the most accommodating , especially on such short notice. They also were the only ones in town that had the cafe lights that we wanted. Without question they were one of the best vendors we used! I highly recommend Avant Decor!

Elizabeth and her partner did an amazing job transforming our venue into something far beyond what my husband and I could have dreamed of doing on our own. I have done my research and their prices and value beat the rest of what I could find around the twin cities. We are very happy we had Avant do our ceiling, stage, and guestbook table drapery and uplighting. Elizabeth was very prompt with responding to our many questions and was always so kind and flexible. I would recommend Avant to all my friends and family.

Our wedding was at Earle Brown Heritage Center with a "Country" theme! Avant was the company that was recommended to us for ceiling draping. Anytime I emailed them or made a phone call to ask a question or get an opinion on an idea I had, I always received a quick personal response! I was able to see some of Avants creations at a food tasting we attended at Earle brown and saw how a partial draping looked and also accenting. We ended up in the end with having our rooms ceiling being partially draped in Ivory with an accent of brown. It was beautiful and matched the vision we had in our heads perfectly! They also were so flexible in substituting the additional accent fee for a promotional no charge headtable draping that they were offering at the time but we had no need for that feature being our headtable was in the center of our room.

I met with several vendors for draping, and Elizabeth from Avant Decor was the only person that I felt like understood what I was looking for AND could afford. A lot of the other vendors just assume that you will book with them and push you really hard to add costs/etc. Avant Decor was easy to work with, professional, and flexible with what we were looking for on our wedding day. Great people!

I can't say enough about Melissa & Elizabeth and Avant Decor. They specialize in ceiling draping and decor so they are the absolute BEST at what they do. I have had the luxury of working with them before my May 19th wedding and their execution and quality of work never ceases to amaze me. They consistently deliver and made my ceiling draping a breeze (the last of my worries) for my wedding. I had almost forgotten about the draping until I walked into my reception and was taken aback by how they had completely transformed my space. Thanks again girls!

They were very easy to work with and are extremely familiar with the ballrooms at Earle Brown Heritage Center. The ceiling drapes gave the large ballroom an elegant touch, and entrance drapes in the bride's color were a marvelous touch. It is nice to know that you can hire a vendor and then forget about the task, knowing they will take care of it for you.

I hired Avant Decor to do the cieling draping and it was absolutely gorgeous and definitely made the room look elegant and classy! I was extremely impressed when I was with my wedding party at Crave in SLP before the reception (in btwn ceremony and reception) and my husband and I each received a glass of champagne from the ladies at Avant Decor! So nice of them...Thank You and I highly recommend your company to any bride!

Avant provided the tulle draping for our reception.

The draping was simple, elegant, and about half the price of other vendors for the same service.

Avant Decor provided beautiful swagging for our wedding. They were very easy to work with and were willing to work with both myself and the bride getting married the night before so that we could help reduce cost. I liked that there were no extra costs tacked on. We had heard good things about them and they lived up to the reputation.

Avant provided ceiling draping for my wedding reception. They were so easy to work with and had many options to choose from. I didn't want the same white formal draping that you see at most receptions, and they were awesome in creating an abstract design that matched my wedding colors. They handled all the communication with my venue for set up and tear down, so once I picked my design and signed a contract there was absolutely nothing else I had to worry about with my already full plate. I was extremely pleased with Avant Decor and received dozens of complimentss on how amazing the decorations looked.

I was thrilled when I walked into our wedding reception and saw the work that Elizabeth and Avant Décor had done to make the room look elegant and feel warm and inviting. Not only did she do an excellent job at a great price, she was easy to work with and made things easy for us by working directly with our venue to arrange times to set up and take down. I would highly recommend Avant Décor.

One swag and light for decorations were forgotten the day before the wedding but I called early the morning of the wedding, like before 7:00 a.m., and it was no problem for them to get the missing items to the location and set them up before we even arrived! Otherwise everything went off perfectly. Elizabeth was very friendly, personable, professional, and excited about her job! We really enjoyed working with her.

Avant Decor was extremely easy to work with and took care of everything. Once I booked with Avant I didn't have to think about it again. Avant took care of everything the day of our wedding from set up to tear down and everything went extremely well. Avant is service oriented and helped me with the exact wedding decor I wanted for our big day.

Avant did a great job with the decor for my reception call. They work a lot with my reception hall and so there was very little that I actually had to do.

Also there was a karate tournament in my reception room prior to our event and Avant only had about 2 hours before people arrived to get everything up and ready. It looked BEAUTIFUL!

Avant Decor provided ceiling draping and uplights for our wedding reception. The draping was amazing; it added so much to the high ceilings at our hall. I had relatives comment on how nice the space looked, and I know a large part of that was because of the draping. The uplights were not as bright as I thought they would be, although they were the regular lights (not LED). Melissa was there the day before to setup, and arrived at Midnight to take it down; all for no extra cost. Overall, I would recommend Avant Decor for ceiling draping. Although draping in general can be expensive, Avant was reasonable and did an excellent job.

Had a little sticker shock at first, but found Avant to be friendly, professional, responsive and very efficient. They are very good at what they do and made a beautiful space even more lovely for my daughter's wedding. I would absolutely recommend this service to anyone wanting to add just that little extra panache to their event.

We compared several ceiling draping vendors. Avant Decor had the design expertise we were looking for. We had white and teal draping with twinkle lights and white lanterns , it was gorgeous! We were able to share the cost of the decor for both the Friday and Saturday night weddings. It worked perfect and was even better than what we had imaginied. We would highly recommend this vendor.

The ceiling decor looked beautiful at my wedding. We did feel later when we received photos back that the lanterns were too sparse and wished that more had been hung to fill the space more and provide a little more cover to the ceiling. However that would have been a problem in part due to the fact that we underestimated how many lanterns were needed and were trying not to break the budget. I wished that someone would have made the call to spend a few more dollars to get the ceiling a little more filled in. We definitely felt that it was COMPLETELY worth the money to have someone else hang them rather that try to do it ourselves.

I absolutely loved what our ceiling looked like with the drapery. It definitely added to our ballroom and it was the one thing i was most excited about at the reception. As much as I liked it, I felt that it was very expensive. I wish that the pricing would have been a little more reasonable and they could have worked with us a little more. Nevertheless, the staff was wonderful!

We were very pleased with the way our ceiling drapery turned out. We used the lace with the string lights and we also had cafe lights over our dance floor. It added the extra charm to our reception hall that we were looking for. Very happy we went with Avant Decor.
