I thought the room looked absolutely beautiful. Our solid gold 50th gala was shining in gold from the table cloths to wonderful lit ice centerpieces celebrating our 50th anniversary. Your attention to detail was superb and you certainly helped us to work within our budget. I especially loved the pride you took in your work. I would not hesitate to use your creative touch and services again in the future. Thanks very much for a job well done!Karen Bossin
Sharon and her team were a pleasure to work with! They worked hard to achieve a look that our client would be happy with, and the end result was a great success. We will definitely contact Simply Elegant for future events.Shawna Creen
Frequently Asked Questions

Planners study the brand, identify target audiences, create event concepts, coordinate the technical aspects plus produce the event.
How much will my planning cost?
Planning is offered on an as need basis. You can choose to use our consulting services at an hourly fee; hire event managers for the day of the event with you doing all of the lead up project planning and securing vendors, or utilize our stress free full planning services from start to finish. Out of town services include a travel fee and per diems for meals and lodging.
Do I need an event planner?
Planners offer expert advice and insight on “what a client doesn’t know that they don’t know.” Some events can take up to 250 hours or more to plan and produce. Most companies secure event management services at the beginning of the planning stages as this saves time. Planners know and have working relationships with responsible vendors that they can go to directly and assist in contract negotiations.
How can I save money?
Planners save you time and can negotiate rates on your behalf. They know the preferred venues that will be the perfect fit for a wide range of events. As venues get booked a year in advance, this should be the first consideration. Next your planner can source all other elements on your behalf including catering, decor, flowers, entertainment, AV, etc. Simply Elegant offers Reward Air Miles.
Are contracts necessary?
