If it wasn't for Maha and Divine Designs I really don't know how I would have been able to pull off our wedding in Chicago. I was an out of town bride, from Dubai, with absolutely no knowledge of anything related to Chicago. Not only was Maha able to help me plan and execute the wedding of my dreams, she seriously went above and beyond for both the wedding and henna! Maha was able to take our vision and taste and translate them perfectly, when I walked into the hall for the first time I felt EXACTLY how I always hoped I would, it was simple, modern, elegance. If I can go back in time to re-live that day I wouldn't change a thing! Thank you so much Maha, I know I've found a friend in you for life! If you're ever in Dubai please let me know!

When I signed a contract with Maha, I knew I will have some problem with commutating with her since I have read all her reviews, but the price was so much lower than others and also she has worked with the meadows club before I decided to go with her. She was great with commutating via E-mail and we set up few meeting decide on flower and other decorating details for the wedding.
I will start with the positive things, I loved the how center pieces turned out, we used the center pieces for the ceremony and reused for center places and it turned out great. Back drop was great. Even though few of my friends did not think the bridal flowers and bridesmaids flowers were fresh, but I got what I have asked for and it looked better than I could imagine.
Okay Negatives, I ordered 15 up lighting for the room only 10 or 11 up lighting was place unevenly at the hall, my wedding planner had to changed the wiring to make it more even throughout the hall.
The boutonnieres for family was so small, we have talked about have two or three spray roses on each boutonnieres but she only had one spray roses on each, which was size of my thumb.
I have requested for flowers for mothers but did not get that on my wedding day, my wedding planner had to go to nearest flower shop to obtain this an hour before our wedding.
The worst of all, I could not get in touch with her on my wedding date. I understand that she was hard to commutate with but I wish she would have answered her phone on the day of my wedding.
After talking to her she did refund me some part of boutonnieres and lighting.
I have to say her work is great, the flowers, Back drop, lighting and price cannot be better, but make sure you are willing to deal with commutation issues.

I used Divine Designs & Events for multiple resources for my wedding. I did some center pieces, bridal party bouquets, groomsmen boutineers, lighting and chair covers.

Maha and her staff did a great job of working with my vision of a rustic fall wedding. They did a fantastic job on all of our floral. My bouquet was absolutely gorgeous and the bridal flowers looked amazing when they were all completed. I thought everything we did came out exactly how i had envisioned and we were so lucky to work with Divine Designs & Events, they are affordable and really worked within our budget and for our vision, however adding some really great suggestions that enhanced the look.

Thank you so much!

I am so so happy with the work that Maha has done for us for our special day, I have never been as happy as i was when I saw my banquet hall decorated. I am so grateful and happy that we chose Devine Design and Events. Maha and the staff always have a smile on their face, so friendly with their brides, and best of all the prices were unbelievable. The most important is that they are very professional. I am so happy and pleased with Divine Design and Events that when we renew our vows, I am definately choosing them again.

One of the most important people in your wedding planning process will be your decorator. That vision you have of draped winter wonderland? A flower-riddled room designed like a garden? A canopy of lights and petals framing your ceremony? The whole theme and concept of your wedding is in the hands of your decorator, and Maha and her team will take your concept and create it flawlessly.

I went through so many changes in my ideas for my flowers and tablescapes, and through them all, Maha assured me each and every change was a great one and she would make it happen. She gave me realistic expectations of flowers that would be in season, ideas for making my wedding stand out from the rest, and even met with me until 9 p.m. on Monday nights just to make sure we were getting exactly the right details down.

Maha is so kind, generous and professional and I very much enjoyed working with her. I found her prices to be really affordable and her range of talent and amenities is staggering. I have received so many compliments on my wedding colors, flowers, centerpieces and over all design, and most people guess double what I actually paid. She did all of our flowers, lighting, napkins and centerpieces, ceremony decor, cocktail hour decor, and even threw in a few special extra surprises, like my favorite flowers in my centerpieces, just because that is the kind of business woman she is.

For a stress-free designer, Maha is certainly your girl. I could not be more thrilled with her services!

Pros-Recently married Sept 7, 2012- I'll start with this Maha a very pretty and soft spoken young lady was/is awesome in her craft, she presented my dream wedding without a mishap. Everything I asked of Maha was definitely created and then some. My wedding and reception was great the decorations were awesome! All of my guest are still in awe and talking about how great the wedding/reception was a week later. I received tons of compliments on how beautiful everything was and how I raised the bar for future weddings. She created my fairytale ambiance of love and romance. I knew what i wanted and i had a specific vision and she brought it to light.





Thank you Maha, I do look forward to working with you in the future for whatever event- now i know not to worry and just sit back and allow you to work your magic.

On the day of my wedding when I walk in I was extremely happy to see how beautiful the hall was looking all because of the back drop. I will truly recommend this place to others, the price is great & you definitely get what you are looking for & even more. One thing to make sure of is be clear.

Maha is the most creative and sweetest person I have ever met! When I say she is the reason my wedding was as magical as it was, I mean that in every sense of the phrase! Her designs are incredible and matched exactly what I envisioned for my special day. She will go above and beyond to make your dream wedding a reality, whatever you want she will do it!

Words literally can not express how thankful we are for walking in Divine Designs one evening. I made an instant connection with Maha and from that day forward I knew that she would create all of my (our) thoughts and ideas into a real-life wedding dream and more. We used Divine Designs for my flowers, church and reception decor, chair cover rentals, table linens, and also received a free candy table promotion with 3 or more services. Divine Events was very considerate of our budget and flexible with scheduling. Our family and guests stated how elegant and gorgeous the decor was at our wedding. We look forward to having Divine Events in our future parties andcelebrations :)

I met with Maha on October 21, 2010 where we discussed, decided, and signed the contract of the items for my May 7, 2011 wedding. This is a copy of the contract:05/07/2011 CENTER PIECES3 CYLINDER GLASSES WITH CYMBIDIUM 17 18.00
ORCHIDS ARTIFICIAL . L - WITH HOT PINK
THROAT , M- ALL WHITE , S- SAME AS L .
FLOATING CANDLES
05/07/2011 FLOWER BALLS XL RED BALL ON WHITE CANDELABRA WITH 2
IVORY CANDLES
description of what service was received:
The orchids were just orchids from the dollar tree that did not even fit in the vases so they stuck out of them looking like weeds. I was supposed to received glamorous cymbidium orchids instead. The "floating" candles that were to top off the vases were metal tealights that would not even stay lit as they were sinking in the water because they are not meant to be in water, besides them also looking incredibly tacky as metal tealights were never discussed nor shown to us in the display she made both at her store and at the wedding expo we visited. Did not receive the Candelabra's at all. Instead received glass vases that stood on the floor. This was explained to my mother immediately following the wedding that someone from her business had dropped and broke one of the candelabra's. That is unfortunate but it is also unfortunate that we had to rent columns for 40.00 to put the Candleabra's on that we could not use all day because we did not receive the service contracted. In the past I have tried contacting Maha through email 6 times and over the phone 5. One of the those times I spoke with Maha she even stated she would send me a refund of 150.00 (30% refund) of the services. Never received the check, contacted her more because of not receiving the check and she never replied.

Divine Designs and Events was the 2nd vendor appointment I made. I met Maha @ one the of the Bridal Expos, which I think that was the best thing a Bride can do is attend a Bridal Expo and meet all different vendors. I love Maha, she is very easy to work with. She bent over backwards for me and got me everything I asked for even if she didn't have it in her show room. Divine Designs and Events worked extremely hard for my wedding that I still had them working the day of. I would not change anything about my wedding because Divine Designs and Events made my dream wedding come true! I HIGHLY recommend this vendor to all my family and friends. I have their number on speed dial for all my future events!

I hired Divine Designs and Events to provide the decor for my wedding ceremony and reception. It was a great experience!

Maha of Divine Designs and Events is amazingly talented. I came to her with a theme and pieces of a vision and she gave me tons of ideas to bring my vision into fruition. Everything she created was right on target or exceeded my expectations. My bouquet was the most beautiful arrangement I laid eyes on! Maha's prices were also the most competitive, but the value was worth much more!

I highly recommend Divine Designs and Events.

HORRIBLE COMPANY. Please never use them. They lied to my mother and I. They were not able to produce anything they conveyed to us. They came an hour before my wedding was to start to begin set up. Everything was rushed and put together last minute. They forgot the Bride and Maid of Honor's special bouquets. Who forgets the brides' bouquet seriously? They were the second highest vendor paid besides my catering/banquet hall and they WERE HORRIBLE. They are a complete scam. We had to get a refund. They were the only vendor that was beyond HORRIBLE and did not produce what they said and what we PAID for them to do. I could go on about these idiots and scammers forever. BEWARE!!

BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING , DECOR !!! I'm sorry that you feel this way . RAIN !! when emergencies like RAIN happen for an outdoor event , we are ecpected to move quickly and rushed, it took so much of our set-up time, that was already limited. I refunded you to gain your satisfation and you agreed to it . Then you wrote all these bad reviews , after prmosing that you were HAPPY!!! I disagree with you as far as the details written about us . I also have beautiful pictures to show my clients of this event . Working with you was great , I wish you would have not listened to the false stories and details given to you , since you never saw anything that you wrote and described.

I'm sorry you feel that way ! Once we started set-up the missing small details you mentioned were not acceible to us , the stage description you gave us was incorrect which didn't allow us to complete the final detail and work. The value of work you received was great, I gave you an excellent rate . Many changes were made as well , several times which may have led to a miscommunication . Overall everything was beautiful and I hope we can work together in the future ! Thank you !

This is the only vendor at my wedding that was unprofessional. It was terrifying for me to hear a day before my wedding that she is unsure if she can provide me with everything we talked about.
Very unresponsive to emails and phone calls. She arrived with nothing preplanned and a baby in her hands. She started working on the designs right at the venue from scratch(this is not how its done!)
Our ceremony was 20 min delayed because she didn't finish on time, guests were arriving as she was still working. The florist was still setting up our reception room during our ceremony!
I am very regretful that I hired her for my big day and I hope no other bride have to go through what I did.

Unfortunatley that's not true! It's interesting how you forgot to mention that you did'nt pay your final payment till 2 nights before the event, and that I personally drove to the city at 10pm to pick up the final payment , I worked with you till th end, I was very helpful and considerate of your budget , the centerpieces I deisgned were worth much more than what you paid.You were contacting me at midnight and non-business hours ! You changed your wedding flowers so many times, I have emails proving you changed your details the night before your wedding , you were so nervous you kept calling our company , yes it's true ,I did say I was not sure if I could do the designs the night before , ONLY because you changed it that moment , and at that point You were asking for items not contracted for and unavailable . As far as the decor it is WAS AMAZING!!!!! for the brides reading this review , please ask me for photos of this event so I can prove myself and Divine Designs and Events !! Your reception and ceremony was in the same place , so your comments are false , I completed your wedding hours before it started , then you asked if I could do ceremony decor for FREE , which I was nice enough to try , but your gazeebo was over 15 feet high and I didnt have a ladder to go up there and try to arrange some decor , It took over an one hour trying to get up there to do you a favor and risked my self being to help and be nice. Did you mention that you intentionally stold my vases and columns that I used for your event ??? Did you also forget to mention that your DAD grabbed my arm and tried to hurt me , because he thought I was paid to do the ceremony and it didn't work out , It was not in the contract , you hassled me to an extreme , I was very patient with you , I'm so offened that you wroted this review . I'm owed an apology !!

Buyer Beware.You can't hide from legal judgements against you, its factual. I have sued this company in small claims court and received a judgement. I am still waiting to collect my payment for this refund. Your day will come, legal judgements don't disappear.

We ordered chair covers and a backdrop. In all fairness the chair covers were perfect.The backdrop was never set up on time. Guests were waiting in lobby to enter. We were promised a refund. Never happened.

Ever wonder how a company can dissolve and have multiple addresses? Don't believe me? Try looking up this company on cyberdrive illinois. Not getting a response to your email or phone calls? No worries, neither have I, and its almost six years later.

Don't trust this company. It was the only thing that my wife cried about that day. I haven't forgotten and never will forgive you for making her cry that day.

I have been married for several years now, but will never forget this company ruining my wedding reception and never refunding my money for what she did deliver on our contract. I hired Maha to do chair covers and a backdrop at my reception. While the chair covers were done nicely, she never did the backdrop. The people showed up late to the venue and were in un-prepared and never executed. She said she needed more time, however where do you go with 300 people so she could have more time. We had spoken after the wedding and she agreed to refund my money since the service she was paid to do was never done. After countless attempts to get me money back still nothing. Completely un professional and ridiculous. Do not trust this company, apparently contracts don't mean anything.
