Planning the Perfect Day with Simply Chic Events

By Marina I. Jokic

As many of us know, planning a wedding can be exceptionally stressful and downright draining. But it doesn't have to be. A professional event planning service can take the stress off and plan the perfect wedding for you. Simply Chic Events in Bakersfield, California specializes in customized wedding packages, and has been awarded "The Knot Best of Weddings" for two consecutive years. Owner Irma Green is eager to help her clients bring their visions to life.

Green was introduced to professional wedding planning in her twenties while working at a bridal salon, and has remained in the industry for the last thirty-three years. At her first job in the salon, Green gradually took on increased responsibilities such as providing vendor recommendations, design and décor consulting, and eventually started planning events from start to finish. Among the most enjoyable aspects of her job are turning a couple's vision into reality.

"When event planners started naming their businesses, I knew the name Simply Chic Events was perfect for my little business," Green remarks. She has always been inspired and fascinated by all things wedding. Based on her own experience as a bride, Green knows well the level of detail that is involved in planning a wedding, let alone making it chic. Hence, Simply Chic was created for handling the painstaking details while working toward the greater vision of a perfectly customized wedding.

"Our unique approach to customized wedding planning, allows us to create a one-of-a-kind celebration that is infused with your unique personality, style, and dreams," points out Green. Simply Chic doesn't have one forte; instead, they specialize in putting on weddings in a variety of themes and locales such as romantic wineries, mini destinations, private homes as well as worldwide destinations.

Whatever their clients' expectations, the Simply Chic team is prepared to exceed them. Helping couples save money is a priority; to that end, Simply Chic has a robust list of high-quality, affordable vendors. On wedding day, Green's team is on site from beginning to end, making sure there are no hiccups.

"The Knot Best of Weddings" award recognizes the most exceptional wedding professionals in the field and is given based on popular reviews. Representing the highest-rated businesses in the industry, the award is among the most coveted within the industry and serves to distinguish the best of the best. Simply Chic, Green emphasizes, has achieved the feat of winning the honor two years in a row. As a benchmark, in 2016, only two percent of the 250,000 local wedding professionals listed on have received this accolade, while the review sample numbered almost one million.

"What I love most about wedding planning is watching everything come together on wedding day," notes Green. "Seeing the look on the couples' face when they see their wedding vision come together perfectly" is what drives Green in her work and fulfils her.
