welcome darling

Ashley nicole events is a boutique wedding & EVENT planning company in chicago, il. Our goal is to provide you with an unforgettable experience!

Bringing on a planner is one of the most personal decisions you can make for your wedding day. It is important to fully research an array of planners to get a sense of their personality, style, and scope of services. Look for an expert in their field. Someone who is transparent and communicates well, someone who has a history of turning great ideas into glamorous, well-organized plans.

A good planner should be as hands off or as hands on as necessary, someone who can speak for you and your vision. Finding the perfect wedding planner will make the process fun! Having a professional who is both experienced and organized...

There are a variety of different types of planners (Full Service, Event Design and Destination) and companies (large corporations to boutique firms) all serving the wedding industry today. Ashley Nicole Events Inc is proud to offer a boutique experience specializing in Event Management aka Month of Coordination. We have created a process that is streamlined and easy to understand. When you become an ANE bride, you instantly become like family and you get Ashley’s undivided attention, you do not get passed off to a summer intern who has no experience.

We embrace technology and offer several ways to allow you to work with us from the comfort of your couch. Throughout the entire process, we discuss your vision, your budget, and your must-haves, all while walking you through your ideal wedding day. We offer simple solutions to help maximize your time, effort and finances. Wherever you are in your event planning experience, we would advise you to book your vendors in the following order: venue, photographer, caterer, Band/DJ, Florist, Hair/Makeup, and finally, the rentals. We happily provide our preferred vendor list to help you tie up any loose ends while guaranteeing the most efficient communication between the planning and production teams.
