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 6 years 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 like The Palmer House, small art galleries, intimate restaurants, and even private home 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

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.

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!!

From the beginning, as soon as we met Allie House, we knew we met OUR planner! She was able to gauge our personalities and develop an aesthetic that was both her amazing vision and our ideal.This unspoken understanding and devotion remained constant throughout our time together. More important than the professionalism and work ethic, was the fact that we gained a lifelong friend, and count Allie not as our wedding planner, but as one of the most honored guests on the most important day of our lives. We give the highest possible recommendation to Allie House, owner of Wedding Now, and say with absolute certainty, that you will love her as a friend, wedding planner, and everything in between. Thank you, Allie, for everything, there aren't enough words to express our gratitude.
Xo, Elizabeth & Scott

We hired Allie as a day of coordinator based on a suggestion from the wedding venue (Galleria Marchetti). We found working with Allie a pleasure and delight. From the very first meeting, we knew we had hired the right person. She was warm, engaging, patient, prompt, and professional. My biggest concern on the wedding day was the timing - how do we seamlessly coordinate floral delivery, photographers, transportation, venue decorations, etc. !? Allie sat with us and built us a detailed timeline that gave us total piece of mind. We had described entrance gate decorations that we wanted to get done and Allie understood exactly what we wanted and expanded upon it. The decorations on the gate turned out better than we could have imagined! We felt so relaxed and so at ease on my wedding day because we knew that every detail was planned and being covered.

Allie was an amazing wedding coordinator. From beginning to end she was helpful in making our wedding day run smoothly and everything went great!!! We were very pleased with our services and would recommend her to anyone! She worked with our budget to give us what we needed without having to break our pocket book. Any time I had a question I either emailed or called and she got back to me within the same day. On our wedding day Allie and her assistant were always making sure everything was running smoothly. I had no worries that day and I was so excited to just be able to enjoy my wedding day! Allie definitely knows what she is doing and is very organized and punctual. I highly recommend choosing Wedding Now to coordinate your wedding! I can guarantee you will not be disappointed! =D

Allie helped me prepare my son's rehearsal dinner. We had about 80 people and it looked spectacular - with balloons, a life-sized chef statue to welcome guests, chef menu/program holders, and roses for centerpieces. I was not from Chicago so Allie helped to find vendors in the area who did a great job!

We hired Allie for our day of coordinator. We were extremely happy with her services leading up to the big day and even more so when the wedding day came. There were hiccups with the florist, Allie and her sister fixed everything and made it so nice that i didnt even realize the issue until someone mentioned it to me a few days later!! She was there from the minute i walked into the church and even helped gather all the personal items at the end of the night! If you need a coordinator I guarantee you will not find anyone that will make your day better than Allie & her team!!!

Allie was simply amazing. We hired her to coordinate things the day of, but she was helpful throughout the whole process from suggesting vendors to listening to ideas and offering suggestions, her help was invaluable along the way. As for our actual day, it was perfect! I would tell anyone and everyone to hire Allie for her day of service at the very least. I had nothing to worry about. Allie made sure everything ran smoothly, checked in on both of us (bride and groom didn't see each other until the ceremony) all day. The ceremony went off without a hitch. The reception was set up exactly as I had imagined it and that was all because of Allie and her team. They probably had a longer day than all of us and she was cheerie and so very helpful until the very end of the night. I cannot say enough wonderful things about all that Wedding Now did for my husband and I as we prepared and celebrated the biggest, most important day of our lives. It was truly a perfect celebration that happened exactly the way we wanted it to with absolutely no stress for either of us on that day. We are so grateful for all that Allie and her team did to make our day so special.

Here is a list of things I (sometimes accidentally) tested Allie on:

-Gently guiding me to make decisions I should have made two months previously

-Sternly telling me to make decisions I should have made three months previously (I can't help it, I'm wishywashy!) -Contacting vendors to do what they are actually supposed to do, in a very nice way : )

-Keeping track of my pathetic vendor contract system

-Contacting my vendors with the last 4,087 questions I was too embarrassed to ask

-Giving my superb organizational skills a run for their money with her even more superb organizational skills (yep, your wedding day is timed down to the minute, and it's a necessity you did not know you needed)

-Herding groomsmen and bridesmaids and getting them to act like actual ladies and gentlemen (which they are not, let's be serious)

-Orchestrating the rehearsal of the ceremony and keeping the bridal party from getting too drunk.

-Keeping my flighty family focused and on time -Calming my nerves during the wedding and ensuring everything runs smoothly

-Being present for the entire wedding and getting everything done, yet with Potter's invisibility cloak because I swear I never saw Allie, yet everywhere you looked, there was evidence Allie and been there and taken care of something. The guest book was suddenly rearranged on a different table, my wedding cards were stored properly, and the evening was keeping on track.

Above all, Allie made the day run so smoothly that my other vendors and wedding guests told me they had never been to or worked a wedding that went so well. Allie was there for me before the wedding, during the wedding, and even the day after. I can't say enough good things about her; and the price is more than right.

Allie was awesome! She kept everything running smoothly on the day, so I didn't have to worry about anything. She was also great during the rehearsal, making sure everyone knew what to do for the next day. Forceful, but polite. The perfect balance of what you need. We couldn't have pulled it off without her and highly recommend her to anyone. She is also a great value and worth every penny.

My husband and I are so thankul to Allie for doing a great job with our wedding! We've had so much contact over the past year using the wedding design package, we feel as if we've gotten to know her well. She stayed enthusiastic throughout, and kept us on top of all the tasks we needed to get done. She has a fun, flirty and modern style of her own but she worked hard to make our wedding just what we wanted. In the end, our wedding in a downtown Chicago hotel was even better than we could have imagined, and it went perfectly - Allie ran around all over the hotel making sure of it - and we barely had to deal with any of the vendors on the day of our wedding at all. Finally, her prices were the best in the Chicago area, and definitely worth every penny!

Allie from Wedding Now was the day of coordinator for my wedding. She was excellent! I was not the most organized bride and had not considered a variety of details. Allie was always a few steps ahead of me and made sure everything went smoothly. She communicated with bridesmaids and the best man, so that I could I could focus on getting married. She made it so that the only thing I had to worry about on my wedding day, was not tripping on my way down the aisle. It was the best day of my life, because I was able to be so care free while Allie handled all the details. If you want to have fun at your wedding, hire Allie. She's super affordable, but provides high end service!

Allie is awesome! Allie was the day of coordinator for our wedding and helped make the day as perfect as it could possibly get! We knew we would need a day of coordinator since our venue was pretty DIY and neither of us would be available on the day of to answer questions, direct vendors, put the final touches on setting up the room, etc. Allie did all of this for us, and more!

When I walked into our reception it had come together even more beautifully than I had imagined, mainly due to Allie and her assistants hard work and ability to direct all our vendors as needed. I did not have to worry about anything on our wedding day - and I tend to be a worrier. Allie made it all seem effortless, even though it was obvious she had put in a lot of hard work.

Not only is Allie a great day of coordinator, she is a warm and caring person who always greets you with a smile. An absolute dream to work with - we feel lucky that she was part of our big day!

Allie provides absolutely everything you want and need in a wedding coordinator!!! From the beginning she showed enthusiasm and warmth and is tremendously motivated and committed to helping your wedding meet your every expectation. I had a very limited budget to work with and Allie was able to help me find creative and elegant ideas for my wedding while not going crazy on the finances. I was also very impressed with how Allie was able to know me so well that she came up with ideas that matched my personality perfectly!! Our wedding was held in California but even with the distance Allie was so great with suggesting vendors, favors, and helping us every step of the way! Her quick responses to my questions and ability to reduce my stress level by being so knowledgeable and competent in her profession. Allie you are absolutely amazing, Thank you so Much!!!!!

Having used Allie as a wedding planner in all three of my childrens' weddings I can honestly say I would enlist her services again if I had any other weddings to plan for. Initially planning their weddings was fun; but then the details and the stress kick in and I would start to feel overwhelmed. That is where I feel Allie excelled in making my life less stressful not only in the planning stage but particularly during the day of seeing that everything ran smoothly. Each of our weddings had glitches the could have been a big issue but Allie took control and handle the situation. ( I wasn't even aware that a problem had occurred until the following day)

At one of our weddings we ended up having approximately 25 more people attend than had RSVP. The facility added space and tables on the patio but these guest were somewhat apart from the the rest of the group and truly not an ideal situation. Allie began directing and working with the manager of the facility to move tables and rearrange the room to accommodate all the additional guest inside so they could become part of the celebration.

Allie and her assistant Felicia were wonderful to work with! I had done nearly all of the planning with our vendors leading up to a few weeks before the wedding, but knew I wanted someone to be my eyes and ears the week and day of the wedding. Allie was very flexible in her services, working with me and my budget - I REALLY appreciated that; as anyone planning a wedding knows, It's difficult to find individuals who are willing to so...especially in the city! She's extremely organized, thinking of some things I had overlooked. In general, I love and default to supporting small businesses. Allie is growing hers; word of mouth and genuine reviews will help her continue to be successful.

Allie was my day of wedding planner. I know exactly what I wanted for the wedding but need a planner for the weekend so I can enjoy my own wedding. She had such good prices and it was worth every penny! She took care of rehearsal, transportation, parking situation and paying for the vendors, purchased ceremony necessary items, all those countless details that I haven't thought of. On my wedding day, she also brought an assistance. Both of them were dressed professionally, and were very busy taking care of everything. I knew that she has less experience than most wedding planners out there. But she has 5 times the enthusiastic and 10 times the dedications than the other wedding planners who has weddings like every weekend. You can never expect them to focus on your wedding. Allie is an entrepreneur and the owner of this business and you can tell she really wanted success. I was very stressed a few weeks from the wedding because some vendors I hired myself are not responsive. And Allie was like the only one that I can count on, who will answer my phone anytime when I needed her. The transportation company I hired only showed up with 1 out 2 vehicles and Allie was able to find last minute substitution with a reasonable price. I was really grateful I found her, not to mention that her price is soooooooo much better than others. We also end up hiring her sister who is a florist for my rehearsal dinner decoration. I have to say, every service I got from her are very solid and excellent. A little hiccup that I forgot the bring the table number signs and Allie didn't notice either. But she was able to handle the situation immediately and assigned table numbers in a minute. Out of all the wedding vendors/business I hired. I'm most happy with Allie. Can't imagine without her at the wedding.
