• The Event

    In 2015, Lety started The Event with a simple baby shower sweet table set up in her dining room. It's grown a lot since then. With over 100 parties and weddings under her team's belt, The Event is a team of dedicated women whose individual strengths make one incredible team. 5 years later, we continue to grow and curate innovated design concepts to elevate our customer experience. We no longer work from our dining room. We are proud to serve all over Chicago and the surrounding areas; including Indiana, Wisconsin, and Michigan.


    The Event's mission is simple: to empower and uplift our clients by turning their vision into a reality; bringing happiness and joy one party at a time. We take a hands-on, stress-free, and service-centric approach in the what we do. We know that when it comes to planning a major milestone celebration, you have many options. Above all, we value your trust in choosing us.

  • "I would like to give Lety & her team a 5 Diamond Star review πŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’Ž. Lety met with me and we discussed the vision that I had for my 40ish Bday event. I was blown away along with all of my guests when on the day of the event my vision was brought to life - it was beyond my expectations. Lety’s professionalism, attention to detail & decor was on point. Thanks to this wonderful team for helping my dream become a reality! I will continue to work with Lety over & over & over again for all of my important events. Thank you πŸ™"

    "Lety and her team did an AMAZING job at my wedding! She was a wonderful day of coordinator. She is very professional, organized, punctual, pays attention to detail, and delivered on everything. My vendor and DJ said she's one of the best coordinators they've worked with. I've recommended her to numerous friends and family. Thanks again Lety and team!"

    "I don't even know where to begin. Lety and Jacqueline lifted a weight off my shoulders for my wedding day. I honestly don't know how the day would have been without their help! They literally took the stress off me and for that, I am forever grateful. They made one of the most important days of my life a memorable one. They were quick on their feet and ready to tackle any hiccup that came their way. They kept me and my husband in the loop throughout the day. Seeing their work previously, I knew we were in capable and trusting hands. I never thought about hiring a day-of coordinator, but certain situations arose before the big day that I knew I needed to bring in the big guns! I am so glad we hired Lety and her team. Not only are they wedding day coordinators, but their sweet table design was perfection! I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing a hand for any event. Thank you both so much!!!"

    "Lety and her team did an amazing job of coordinating our wedding from start to finish. My wife and I met w/ Lety two weeks prior to go over details which she used to create a super comprehensive and helpful itinerary. Lety and Jackie were on point when it came to making sure that our wedding day went exactly as planned! Both Lety and Jackie provided such an invaluable service. We couldn't be happier and will definitely recommend The Event to friends in the future."

    "After seeing her professional and contemporary work, I decided to call Lety to plan my baby shower. She introduced wonderful and unique ideas, she fit my budget, and took care of everything! All I had to do was enjoy my day, which was the most memorable. I would definitely call her again for my next event because of the great experience I had."

    How to get started

    All first-time consultations are complimentary. Schedule one today and learn about our planning and design process. All consults are scheduled during the week as weekends tend to be our busier days.

    How far in advance should you book The Event

    For smaller size set ups, we recommend about 2-3 months prior to the event date to book. For weddings, we recommend booking 9-12 months in advance. We generally do not double book, as we want to be completely hands-on and give our best to our clients. Currently we have very limited availability during the summer season, and are booking for Winter 2020 and for 2021. It is never to early to book and secure your event date. Most of our deposits are $100.

    We proudly serve Sweet Impressions sweets and cake to compliment our sweet table design. All sweets are custom made to match the theme and color pallet of the sweet table.
