Approach

our planning and design process




What we do at Bliss is exceptionally unique. We curate multiple disciplines and bring them under one beautiful Bliss roof. Traditionally, an event designer and an event planner are two very different roles - event designers work for either a florist or design house, and a planner hires an event designer to visualize their clients event. We are one of the only companies in Chicago to provide both planning and event design for our clients. We are incredibly lucky to have Jesse Deckard as our Senior Designer. He has been professionally trained in event design and has over 15 years experience working on that side of the business. He guides our clients on vision boards, spacial floor plans, custom branding, unique rentals, floral design, furnishings, renderings, fabrication and perfect lighting to design the experience.

We also coordinate all of your event details—the planning process—from selecting the perfect venue, choosing the right entertainment, to creating a menu that delights all the senses— everything will be effortlessly orchestrated and clearly communicated with online task lists, vendor schedules, guest lists and budgets so you are always in the loop.   After all, this is more than your event; it’s months and weeks leading up to your day, and they should be filled with spectacular moments—from that first time you walk through our doors to those first steps into your special event.

We are proud to say we have spent countless hours over the last 25 years developing the best vendor relationships in Chicago and all around the country which means we pass those benefits and savings directly to you.  Look though the below events for a few BEFORE and AFTER examples of Design.
