This company has a vision, and that is so a necessity for small business owners. I had a nice chat with the gals of SE where I was able to pick their brains a bit. They have a vision of being "Professional, Classy and top of the line". They stay up to date on the latest trends, which makes them a top choice in Bloomington-Normal and surrounding areas. The people who would most benefit from services of SE are "Anyone with an upcoming event including corporate/business events, weddings, anniversaries, and parties of any type." We all know someone who knows someone who's planning a party or event of some type. Such a broad variety of people can benefit from their services! When talking about different trends that are effecting these people's lives, Julie said "The internet, especially Pinterest, overloads people with ideas and experiences of what they want their event to look like. Therefore, expectations are set high for including all of the ideas they see".  With nearly 50 million active Pinterest users in US alone, the possibilities are truly endless. It's great to have a virtual inspiration board to collectively get all your thoughts in one place. It is also great to have an interest in current trends to better equip your business for future clientele. Definitely a proactive choice of SE!


Simple Elegance Design is "a complete package, a full service event planning company". They offer many services that fall into event planning and offer several different packages to fit the need of every client. The "Basic Package" called Day Dreams is for the client who has everything put together but doesn't want the stress of executing it all on their big day. SE consultants would then start overseeing the planning and design for your event a couple of weeks before hand. Visit the <Day Dreams page> to learn more. Next, they have the Sweet Dreams package which is the midsize event package for under 300 guests. SE consultants will take more of a hands on role throughout the planning process of your event. They will locate venues, search for exceptional venues, set a budget and help implement that, provide basic décor/design, help find lodging for any out of towners coming to your event, several planning meetings and much more. Lastly, SE has a Simply Dreamy package, this is the full service, big shebang! Professional planning customized to the Bride, Groom and their families sharing in the special day. The package includes many luxury services including: Creative design and décor with theme and concept well thought out, concierge service for last minute details/deliveries, attendance at several important meetings with Venue and Vendors, design for "pre-event parties" (bridal shower and personal showers, bachelorette and bachelor party), and many other conveniences for the Guests of honor! With all 3 of these packages, you get SE Senior Consultant's personal attention, Unlimited email access to them, unlimited phone calls within normal business hours, confirmation of vendor services prior to the event and the absolute guarantee of a stress free special day! Another option is for the recently Engaged, it is a Basic getting started package (the DIY wedding). Here they meet with the couple for 2- 1.5 hour sessions and get them into the thought process of event planning. They go over some basics and prep the couples as to what is involved in wedding planning. Some are so overwhelmed with the process that they absolutely have to have assistance with the planning process, for this reason SE also offers a $200 credit to any services booked within a week after this consultation.


The Photo Booth is an ongoing trend amongst events in recent times. Simple Elegance has a top of the line Photo Booth available, with high quality photos, LED lights always on (which eliminates red eye), several photo size options for singles, couples or groups, a variety of props and the list continues. <font color="#0066cc">http://aweddingtodreamof.com/dreams/photo-booth/</font>
