I had a great experience working with Simply Elegant. They helped me pick out furniture that fit my budget and matched my event's theme perfectly. Jade, the event designer was amazing to work with—so creative and professional. The service was exceptional, from measuring and layout suggestions to on-time delivery and post-event cleanup. The furniture was beautiful too! Highly recommend them!

Budaya Nusantara Association had our Third Annual Anniversary Celebration this year with our members and their families at Simply Elegant’s Waterfront Park Venue. The location inside the Pavilion tent was perfect for our family picnic event. The location is a hidden treasure in Calgary, lush greenery by the lagoon near The Bow River. Thank You Simply Elegant, specifically to Rob and Jade, for the opportunity to have our celebration at the Waterfront Park, the service is second to none. I highly recommend having Simply Elegant Coordinate any events. Their team is professional, attention to detail and pleasant to work with.

Frequently asked questions

Why hire an event planner?

An event planner applies project management to the creation and development of events. They design the event including input into the menu, décor, and entertainment and coordinate the technical aspects of your special event. A planner will also work with you on the day of your event to make sure all the details are taken care of so you don’t have to feel stressed.

Planners offer advice and insight on “what a client doesn’t know that they don’t know.” Events can be time-consuming to plan. By hiring an event planner, you can save time and money in the long run as planners have connections with specific vendors and know how to negotiate contracts on your behalf.

Are contracts necessary?

Contracts protect you and your vendors. Our event planners can help you assess vendor contracts as they are a legal agreements for your party services including payment schedules.

How much does an event planner cost?

You can use consulting services at an hourly fee, hire a planner for the day, or use complete planning services from the initial planning stage to work with you from start to finish. We tailor our event services to meet your specific needs.

How can I save money working with event planners?

Our event planners can save you money and have the ability to work within your budget.
