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’ve work with couples from Chinese, Korean, Jewish, and Hispanic backgrounds to name a few. 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.

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

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.

Allie was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. She was responsive and professional. She always went out of her way to make sure that we were getting what we requested and then some. She is so kind and easy to work with, it was like having my friend plan my wedding. There were numerous times I would have given in to the vendor and Allie stepped in and fought for us and I would say 9 times out of 10…she got what we originally were asking for, which was awesome. It can be a very stressful time and I would say my stress level was always low. She was organized and gave us helpful checklists, so all in all…it was an amazing and easy process. Wish I could get mu hubby to let me do it all over again :) Maybe for our 10 yr anniversary :) Thanks Allie!

Ally was amazing, she was on top of all our emails months prior to the wedding and took care of us during all our events. Everyone commented how calm and anxiety-free we were during the whole process. Ally played a HUGE part of that!

Allie House was plane and simple absolutely wonderful from start to finish! I still think of myself as the atypical bride; I never thought about my wedding until after I was engaged. My mother and I interviewed a few planners due to my rigorous work schedule and lack of any wedding knowledge I knew I would need someone to tell me what needs to be done and a deadline for each task. I truly had no idea about what I wanted, how I wanted it to look, where to start, what to do, or how to put any ideas I had about my wedding into words. Because of my lack of knowledge and time during the week, this also made me a very high maintenance bride. Allie guided me through every single step literally up to the day I got married; from meticulously outlining my to do's to providing insight and examples of invitation wording. She was fun, professional, and very patient and above all she was honest. I very much valued her imagination and vision to take my very indecisive and vague ideas and turn them into something so beautiful. Her job didn't come so easy when it came to dealing with my mom (love her beyond words, but she didn't make things very easy at a few points), but Allie was nothing but kind and professional. She was quick to respond to emails, return phone calls, and even text. She outlined every detail that needed to be addressed leading up to our wedding day and on the day of she had a minute by minute itinerary for everyone in the wedding party so that we all were on the same page. She was the liaison between me and all our vendors making sure that contracts were signed, room blocks were set up, payments were made, favors were ordered, musicians and DJ's were confirmed, and florists set up on time. There isn't a day that goes by that my husband and I don't wish we could go back to our wedding day and relive it again and again. Allie was such an asset that any bride looking for a reliable, organized, professional, and well-versed planner would be crazy to pass her up!

Allie was the best decision my husband and I made while planning our wedding. We live in Cleveland but were holding a Chicago wedding and Allie made the entire process as stress free as possible. She was very conscious of our budget and helped narrow down our entire selection process with the best services with reasonable pricing. She worked with our very busy schedules and packed as much as possible into weekend visits to Chicago so that we didn't have to make too many trips. She also conducted Skype meetings to help keep our traveling to a minimum. She helps keep you to your timeline and reminds you of all the details that are easily forgotten. We couldn't have pulled off our wedding without her.

She also conducted Skype meetings to help keep our traveling to a minimum. She helps keep you to your timeline and reminds you of all the details that are easily forgotten. We couldn't have pulled off our wedding without her. Read less

We found Allie of WeddingNow by searching for a wedding planner in the Chicagoland area as we are not from the area. She was the textbook planner from the initial interview through after the event. She made a very detailed timeline of what events we would need to get done and when. When it came to individual vendors (cake, DJ, photography), we set a budget and she provided a selection of preferred vendors within that range. (Each of those that she recommended were great choices in their own right!) At each step of the journey of wedding planning, she held a great balance of professionalism and humor, making our planning relatively seamless. We would recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced, knowledgeable, and fun planner who will make your wedding or event excellent.

I could not have done my wedding without Allie. From the moment I met her I felt like I had known her forever, she's extremely kind, professional, organized and all around an incredible person. I contacted Allie only 6 weeks before my wedding and she pulled everything together before the wedding and the day of with an absolute zen like calmness. I was trying to be in one million places (honestly I was turning into a hot mess) at once the day before our wedding and the day of, but she stepped in and pulled everything together with ease; the day was a huge sucess. Everyone needs an "Allie" for their wedding planning, day of coordination or any major event. I know she's going to be a huge success in the event planning industry and I'm so lucky to have worked with her!!
