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 100% recycled paper and plans every event using an online suite of planning tools, documents, and spreadsheets that are also accessible by our clients at any time

As a member of the Green Wedding Alliance, we prioritize 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.

We arrange composting services for food waste and floral repurposing services so that your beautiful arrangements can have a second life at nursing homes and charity organizations.

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 events 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
