At Lowe House we do things a little differently than most event planning companies. We think that your events should reflect you, not us, and that what makes a party magic isn't the pretty details, but the people attending it. We work with and recommend other vendors that we love, but don't ever take a commission or a kickback from them – if we get a discount, you get the discount, and the only money we make is what you're paying us directly.
We work with our clients to help them create the weddings and parties that they want with as little stress as possible. This means that we'll probably encourage you to simplify things, not add to them, and instead of asking you to gather lots of inspiration images we'll talk with you about what you want your event to feel like (that said, we also love sharing Pinterest boards with our clients).
Weddings and other milestone events by nature are often stressful – because almost anything involving money, family, and societal expectations is often stressful. We're here to talk you down from the ledge, to tell you to ignore your cousin/high school friend/brother-in-law who's questioning your decisions, and to ask you four days before go time if you really want to spend eight hours covering your table numbers in glitter. If you do, then we'll be right there with you. And if you don't, then we'll encourage you to put down the glue gun, and go have a glass of wine while we take care of making sure that everything goes off without a hitch.
Weddings do not have to be expensive, stressful, planned two years in advance, or formal. As long as they feature a couple who loves each other, the rest is ultimately pretty extraneous (although, potentially really fun extraneousness.) That said, a lack of money, time, or fanciness does not mean that your wedding cannot be beautiful, meaningful, and all other kinds of wonderful. And it certainly doesn't mean that you can't have a totally kick ass party.
