How much is your special day worth?

Recently I had a consultation with a very honest couple. The attractive bride-to-be told me that she wanted something pretty and cheap. Although I don’t believe in spending frivolously, I am a proponent of “you get what you pay for”.

With me it’s always going to be gorgeous but you’ll get something different, something unique. I am not ordinary so my designs are not ordinary. I’ve invested in my craft and I operate in a spirit of excellence. It is extremely important to me, not look like anyone else therefore I don’t want my designs to look like everyone else. Now if you bring me an inspiration picture and say “how much will this cost?” I will create it but it will be unique to you and thus its value will not be the same as someone else who may create something similar. I delight in taking your vision and making it extraordinary.

At Eleven 11 Events, we use premium draping and premium linen. Some lines we carry are Luxury Lines therefore you may never see anyone else in this area with them. I also make a lot of my items so they are custom.

The definition of cheap: costing very little; relatively low in price; inexpensive; of decreased value. Nothing received from Eleven 11 Events, LLC will ever bring these words to mind. Words that come to mind regarding our work: Priceless, superior, valuable, excellent, sophisticate and classy.

But I get it, really I do. This bride didn’t mean to say that she wanted a cheap looking wedding. What she was saying was she didn’t want to pay a lot. So, how can one not pay a lot and still get priceless, superior, valuable, excellent, sophisticate, classy and gorgeous?

First by being realistic regarding what your vision of your special day is.

If you picture a fairytale wedding with beautiful elements flowing throughout in your desired color palette, please know it is achievable. What value would you put on someone creating a day that you’ve imagined?

Here’s what a bride had to said about their Eleven 11 Events experience:

I called after 7:00 pm on Christmas Eve and Ms. Ingram answered the phone and provided me with a quote later that evening! We scheduled to meet two days later which left us just one week to plan before the wedding on 01/02/21. I can’t say enough about the professionalism of this team and their attention to details! They definitely exceeded our expectations! Ms. Ingram and her team were very responsive to our needs and decreased my stress level right away. Excellent communication and follow through was noted with all of her staff. I definitely appreciated the comprehensive services offered. Anything I needed – they delivered; from designing the wedding program, finding a photographer, creating a Zoom link so family and friends could be part of our special day, picking up the cake, shopping for a cake topper to picking up and delivering the flowers to me on our wedding day.

This is probably what's the most spectacular thing - we were absolutely amazed at the transformation of our living and dining area! When people see our pictures they ask, “Where did you get married?”. They can’t believe this was at our home and those familiar with our home, don't recognize it! It was AMAZING and absolutely beautiful!

Without hesitation, I would, without a doubt, recommend Eleven 11 Events for any special event you are planning and need assistance. You will not be disappointed!

We draped a tent for our client Gabriela's wedding reception and she had this to say:

“I didn’t know what to expect but when I saw the draping it was like a dream come true”

And when we provided our elegant gold Chiavari Chairs, one of our grooms had these words to say:

Why such raving reviews? Because it’s of utmost importance to make sure nothing ever comes across as anything but stunning and we train our staff to think like this. So when you’re quoted a price or a package from Eleven 11 Events, know that you will receive above and beyond the value of the price. Why? Because our goal is to exceed expectations... and that’s what we do.

A Word From Phebeit

I love when people smile.  It brightens my day.  I search for them as I’m out and about.  A friend once told me she was walking across the magnificent mile in Chicago and was contemplating suicide.  S
