Wedding Now specializes in custom wedding design and day of service packages. Your wedding will be professionally designed by a certified wedding planner and event coordinator. When designing for a bride and groom I work with them to insure that they get not only a unique wedding experience but one that has been infused with their personalities.

I have been planning weddings for nearly a decade now and it is still my passion and a dream that has become a reality. Wedding Now officially launched in Chicago in January 2010.

Since then I have had the pleasure to work with brides and grooms from many different walks of life. I love the diversity of people and families here in Chicagoland and helping each couple tie in family tradition and heritage.

I’ve also had the experience of working with a multitude of venues from large Chicago hotels, boutique venues, small art galleries, intimate restaurants, and even private homes and backyards. Each different couple and location inspires me creatively and I find new energy and excitement with each wedding I plan and coordinate. The Chicago Cultural Center and Cafe Brauer at the Lincoln Park Zoo are just a couple of my favorite venues I've had the pleasure to work with.

I hope you will give me the opportunity to contribute to your wedding day. I’m already looking forward to it! Read less

Allie and her assistant were wonderful. We booked her for our day of planner, but she did so much more than this. She created our timeline, ran out rehearsal, set up all our DIY decorations (and made them even more beautiful than we could have), gave us great suggestions throughout the whole process and was always prompt with responses. She was one of the more affordable wedding planners but could get away with charging 10x the rate. They stayed at the end of the night to clean everything up and made it so my mom was stress free and able to enjoy the evening. Loved her!

Look no further, Wedding Now is the only call you need to make! Felicia was indispensable in the organizing of my daughter's wedding down the home stretch. She was very organized and knowledgable as to exactly what we needed. She organized the vendors, the rehearsal on Friday night, set up of the cocktail hour, the reception room, as well as helping out with everything the night of the wedding. Because of her and her assistant Christine, things went smoothly and I was able to actually enjoy the wedding with my family and friends. Of all the decisions we had to make in planning this wedding, hiring this vendor was the best!

If you are considering hiring a day of wedding coordinator I HIGHLY recommend it and look no further than Allie at Wedding Now! We hired Allie to be our day of coordinator and she exceeded all expectations and was worth every penny (Her prices are very reasonable as well). She offers so much more than assistance on the day of your wedding. She becomes the contact between all of your vendors a month in advance and handles every single little detail you could possibly imagine. She puts together a extremely detailed day-of timeline, confirms that all vendors are on the same page prior to the wedding, and is there on the day of the rehearsal and wedding to ensure sure everything runs smoothly. Having her there allowed us to enjoy every minute of our wedding day without any stress. If anything came up, we let Allie know and she immediately handled it. I promise you will never regret spending a little bit of extra money on your wedding because have Allie as a day of coordinator is beyond worth it!

Allie is simply put "AMAZING"! She took the vision that was in my head and just made my wedding day dream come true to life!! I frequently changed my mind and Allie was right there through every decision and re-decision!!

Allie is so easy to talk to and she was available any time day or night that I panicked and needed her.

Allie was wonderful. She and her assistants helped our day flow wonderfully! If anything went wrong, I didn't know about it! All the hiccups we had early on, were quickly addressed and solved (one of my bridesmaids dumped a whole cup of coffee down her dress!). Allie was very flexible with meeting times and did an amazing job redirecting all the vendors to talk with her as opposed to me so I could focus on the final odds and ends of the wedding. Allie stayed with us the whole day and made sure all our items made it back to us at the end of the night. Which was great, especially because I was too busy having an amazing time to worry about it! I would highly recommend Allie!

Allie and "Wedding now" was instrumental in making my son's wedding a organized and well run event. Allie helped coordinate all the small details that made the wedding memorable. Because she was there, I was able to enjoy myself and know everything flowed well.
I would highly recommended Wedding Now to any bride for wedding planning.
Allie's best quality is that she is very calm and gently leads you to the right decisions without imposing her personal feelings about things.

I used Allie as my day-of wedding coordinator and had a great experience. About a month out from our ceremony she met with my fiancé and I at our ceremony and reception locations to go through the details. She helped with a lot of the final decisions by giving examples of what other couples have done, and recommending certain set-ups that would allow for the best use of our space.

She was also very helpful during the rehearsal to help keep our wedding party (and spectators) in line to ensure everyone would know what to do. That was very helpful since our ceremony location was a do-it-yourself type set-up that required a lot of coordination to avoid confusion.

On the day-of, she helped wrangle the groomsmen while they were getting ready and made sure that all vendors knew where to meet up. The best part was that she (and her helpful assistant, Michelle) helped make sure the ceremony and reception were executed exactly as I envisioned, since I was obviously busy trying to get ready and then enjoy myself!

I would recommend Allie's services to friends and family - thanks again!

My wife and I often joke that signing up with Allie and Wedding Now for full time coordinator was a better decision than getting engaged. My wife and I knew that we needed as much help as we can get planning our wedding and having to hire lots of outside vendors. We needed someone who knew the how to search through countless vendors but also (and more importantly) someone we liked working with and liked personally. Allie has a unique, calm attitude that's hard to find in this industry. She knows when to tell us to get something done and also when to let us relax a little.

Her professionalism cannot be overstated. She knows the industry and knows how to cater to each client's tastes. She gets work done. If you're looking for someone with a genuine passion to help you make your wedding the best it can be. The services are incredibly affordable (especially when compared to other planning companies) and the service is exceptional. I cannot speak highly enough

We don't know how our wedding would have turned out without Wedding Now. But we're glad we don't have to imagine. Simply top-notch.
