We cannot thank Meg enough for what a terrific job her and her team did coordinating the countless details of our wedding day. As two type-A personalities, it was difficult for us to select someone that we both trusted to oversee our big day. While we read many great reviews of Meg's work, we knew after our first meeting, she was the one and she did not disappoint. Meg created a very detailed five page timeline of our wedding day. The day flowed so well as a result and provided us the peace of mind to know that nothing would be missed. As a few minor issues arose over the course of the day, we appreciated not having to deal with it. What may have otherwise been stressful if left for us, Meg and her team handled everything with calm and ease. While we know it was a long day for Meg, she always had a smile on her face and plenty of energy.

My wedding planner was Emilee Lales, and before I offer my "words of wisdom," I have to disclose an important fact--Emilee is one of my best friends also; I have known her for 9 years. But don't let that color your thoughts when you read this review because our friendship probably made it harder for Emilee to do her job. In our first meeting, we sat and figured out "big picture" things; she listened to my ideas and helped me to focus my thoughts into something more concrete. We decided on our roles and what each of us expected from the other. It is truly overwhelming to find a wedding vendor--there are SO many in Chicago! I didn't want to go with a one-stop-shop wedding center, so I knew I had already made the planning more difficult. Emilee was extremely resourceful; she helped me narrow down some choices and recommended wonderful companies. She arranged all of the meeting times to see the venues, meet the vendors, etc. If there was something I didn't want to deal with, such as telling a caterer we didn't want to go with them, Emilee took care of that. I also particularly loved (loved loved!) that she made spreadsheets, timelines, and checklists for me; she made sure that we were on the same page and that we were on track. I was in my last year of medical school during the wedding planning time and for over a month, I wasn't in Chicago; Emilee made sure that everything was still running smoothly on track while I was gone. She made sure that we kept in touch when it was important and left me alone for the little details that I didn't care for. I worried at first that because of our personal friendship, she would not treat me like a client. Emilee knew how to navigate between the friendship and wedding planning and was honest with me whenever I suggested something. She knew how to tactfully inform me if something would be out of our price range or would be honest when explaining why something would not work, and then would show me alternative ideas. Emilee scores an 11 out of 10 for professionalism. I have seen her in many different social situations, and her professionalism always shines through--she is courteous, gracious, and witty. Most importantly, she is smart! She is extremely good at problem-solving. She knows how to deal with difficult people, and how to make wrong things right. Despite the fact that Emilee was also one of my bridesmaids, she handled all of the mini disasters and made sure to keep me out of the loop unless I specifically wanted to know. She also had two Blush and Bashful interns come in and help. They did a fantastic job at taking care of the busy jobs, such as moving the flowers from ceremony to the reception. My wedding day was actually quite stress-free because between Emilee and the interns, they handled all of the problems!

Meg was extremely helpful from start to finish. I didn't worry about one thing the day of which is a blessing. I called all of my vendors early Saturday morning and Meg had contacted everyone already.
