We were really happy to see that this company offered multiple services. We found them first by searching for a DJ and upon learning that they offered décor services, promptly booked those services as well. When all was said and done we also got a great deal on a photobooth from them. Everyone did a great job. The music was so much fun and the décor transformed our room. It felt like you were stepping into another place when you entered the room. The photobooth was the hit of the night! Thanks, MWES, for helping us create our best night ever. Highly recommended!!

MWES Décor services put the finishing touches on our day. The ceremony décor (draping behind the service, aisle décor and an aisle barrier so no one but the bridal party walked down the runner) were absolutely perfect. For cocktail hour, the lights put under the tall tables made the room look so cool and specific to us. The reception was just awesome with our monogram projected over the head table, uplighting around the room coordinated to our wedding colors. They were great about the whole planning process; we gave them our budget and they worked with us to ensure it was used effectively and appropriately throughout the entire wedding.

I have been to so many weddings in generic reception halls and I wanted to find a way to make my special day not feel like another run of the mill wedding. When I contracted MWES Weddings, Patrick worked with me to make my desires a reality. Our friends and family love to dance, so I let them know that the dance floor was the most important part of our wedding. Knowing this Patrick design kept the focus to our dance floor. He showed us photos of white dance floors and we knew we that was a must to transform the old looking parquet floor into something that was elegant. Over the dance floor you used a 12 point two toned ceiling canopy that matched our wedding colors perfectly. The one thing that we were worried about going in was the color of our uplighting matching the colors. Many of the weddings we had gone to that had uplighting had a color that was close to the wedding colors but none seemed to match really well. Patrick put my mind to ease with this when he setup a meeting with us so we could bring in something that had our wedding colors in it and he went through to find the exact right color that we approved. It was little things like this to made us know MWES was going to be exact on everything we wanted.

We also used MWES for our DJ. John was very personable and brought a lot of energy to our wedding. We are glad that we did the upgraded lighting package as well with the DJ services. Having the moving lights on the dance floor with the DJ assistant that controlled them created the exact environment we wanted.

From one bride to another, if you are looking for a company that will take the ideas you had of your wedding since you were a little girl and will turn them into a reality. MWES

Midwest Event Solutions saved our wedding when the first DJ company we booked started coming back to us with all of these additional hidden fees. There was an extra charge for everything, but that was not clear from our first meeting. We had signed a contract already and thought we were stuck, but after reaching out to Midwest, they helped coach us through how to handle the situation and were very accommodating with a payment plan while we figured things out. My husband and I really appreciated the care and extra help Patrick and his staff gave us.

Great Décor, Fantastic Customer Service

The title says it all; MWES did a great job with décor and had fantastic customer service throughout our whole experience. We liked that they worked with both our venue and us to ensure that we were utilizing our budget and fulfilling our needs appropriately. They wouldn’t just sell us something because we asked for it. They talked with us to really understand the feel and look we were going for and then made sure that it made sense for our venue. We got to be really involved with putting things together and had MWES’ expertise to help guide us. Thanks again!

We booked MWES and highly recommend them. Great people/staff, fantastic service and worry/hassle-free booking and planning. Online planning tools for dj were great, everything we could think of was there and no detail was missed. Head table draping, room uplighting and bridal monogram on dance floor were breath taking. Pricing was fair, especially for the quality of service.

We booked Midwest Event Solutions with only a few weeks before our wedding date. My husband is in the army and found out he was being deployed earlier than expected, so we decided to move up our date. We were relieved to see all of the services that this company had to offer (dj, décor and photo booth) and happy that they worked with us to get things booked and settled quickly. We were delighted with how everything turned out; the paper lanterns and uplighting in our tent gave it a very cool and distinctive look. The photo booth was great fun for our guests (they helped us design our favors too-fun frames for the photo strips) and Aly, our dj was perfect to keep the party going and help our guests see important events (our backyard wedding had different locations for different things like cake-cutting, dancing, etc). It was nice to have a second dj to help coordinate with the other vendors as well. Thanks to everyone from Midwest who helped my husband and I see our dream wedding come to life on our expedited timeline. It was absolutely perfect and breathtaking.

We had our reception at the Allerton Hotel and although it is beautiful, the ballroom has a configuration such that you cannot always see the head table. Midwest Event Solutions set up video screens with a live video feed of the head table so that no matter where you were you could see and hear the head table. This made it so much nicer for guests during toasts and speeches. Midwest also did a video montage that played at times throughout the reception with pictures of us growing up and at the early stages of our relationship. It was truly beautiful and made our reception. Their DJ service was second-to-none and we had no complaints! Be prepared for a great experience with this company.

If you’re looking for a company to assist you with multiple services and achieve with each one, this is your wedding vendor. They do such a great job (we’ve been to three different weddings where they provided some service) and consistently make sure you’re happy and getting what you need. Patrick, Smooch, Aly and Kate all were great the day of our wedding. It was so wonderful to work with people that were as concerned about making my wedding day as perfect as I was. This team knew their stuff and delivered on their promises. My guests had a blast at our reception and even commented on how fun the cocktail/dinner hour music was (we knew didn’t want “jazz standards” or “The Rat Pack,” but weren’t sure what else there was). Their photo booth was the best one I’ve ever been in! GREAT selection of props (which was included in the price!!!) and very fun attendant. Décor was beautiful and meticulously done. Yes, there are tons of other companies out there that provide these services, but you’ll be hard pressed to find one that does all of them as well, plus providing excellent customer service, as Midwest Event Solutions.

This company’s Dj and décor service was perfect. My husband and I are from out of town, but our wedding was in Chicago, so we were never able to actually meet Patrick or Aly in person until the day of the wedding. They both were so communicative throughout the planning process ensuring that everything was perfect for us since we were nervous about booking so many of our wedding services from out of state. They were even able to give us some recommendations and some information on other services we were looking for that they didn’t provide. Such a wonderful resource. This company does it right!
