sustainable weddings & events

Eco-friendly creative team

Staying local


Sustainable Soirées has five core values that our team uses in the planning of every event...

Our team uses paperless billing and plans each event using an internal system online to keep us organized, our carbon footprint low, and on top of every detail no matter where we are

As a member of the Green Wedding Alliance, we are committed to working with like-minded vendors who implement green practices both in the office and in the execution of events

Our design services provide couples with unique ideas that don't require purchasing single-use items. We pull inspiration directly from their venue to utilize the space wisely and we provide recommendations for stylish, reusable rental items 

With every event we book, our team makes a charitable donation to either a local or global organization. A few of the charities we've donated to in the past include the ACLU, Global Wildlife Conservation, and Malala Fund. 

We plan weddings primarily in the Chicago area, but, from time to time, we will drive to Wisconsin and Michigan. We value the close relationships we have with local wedding professionals, so by staying local we ensure consistent results for both our team as well as our clients. Not only do we support our local economy this way, but we also reduce our carbon footprint by not traveling more than 120 miles.

We plan and design weddings that leave a lasting impression on your guests, not the environment


Smart design


Conscious paper consumption

these are a few of our favorite things

sustainable living = joyful living
