Weddings

Where do I go for Event Planning? Dessert tables? Backdrops?

Have you ever wondered how to pick an event planner to execute your decisions for a big day? It’s all about connecting with someone who gets your vision! I found my wedding coordinator after months of searching and after tons of recommendations! I found someone who finally understood my ideas. Separate from the big weekend, looking back, I actually wish I knew about specific event planning services during the months leading up to the wedding for events such as the bridal shower, the dolkhis, the Mehdni, etc. Had I known there were services for that, I could have used them for ALL my wedding events!

Recently, I placed a small order with Charming Affairs by Noreen for some cake pops for my husband’s birthday dinner and got to know her a little better through this. Noreen, of Charming Affairs by Noreen, offers a full service event planning company in Dallas! It is definitely nice to have an expert help execute and iron out ideas you have for your big day or week if you’re of South Asian descent haha. There are SO many benefits for hiring a professional to help guide you through your events. This way you can execute projects such as creative dessert tables, backdrops, cute party favors, and more! This gives YOU time to work on yourself!

Noreen has been doing event planning for about a year now and has come a long way and rightfully so with the talent that she holds in her creativity! Noreen’s creativity has helped her business, but I think it’s her passion for planning and pleasing others that make her prices so reasonable. It cost me $24 for a dozen cake pops (which is very reasonable compared to market price). The cost is not the only reason I loved working with her. She didn’t think that the cake pops I ordered were up to par since she had outsourced them this time around. Noreen voluntarily dropped off pretzel sticks and nutella shots to my house, which were AMAZING for the record, because I was a first time customer and she did not think the cake pops represented her company! I don’t think you get that kind of passion and care with most other event planning services. I learned quickly that she enjoys decorating but most importantly, seeing the reaction of clients when they are satisfied with the products or services!

Charming Affairs by Noreen caters to all events and orders (small or large)! You can literally just order a few items for a small party or have her set-up and bake desserts for your entire wedding! Noreen (with the help of her hubby) has expanded her services to include backdrops for small events, handcrafting table decor for events, balloon arches, and much more! She completes most of her work herself but she does have several vendors that she can outsource to if needed. She’s open to trying new projects – just ask her and she will give you honest feedback if your inquiry is something she can actually follow through with! Charming Affairs is also open to travel, however she does not currently ship desserts outside the Dallas area. I am certainly impressed by the detail – and if you remember my blog post from my wedding series Details Details Details! details are everything for any event you are planning!

If you have not seen her website, you must check it out! Charming Affairs would highly recommend using her for all your party needs. Make sure to use the code “bollyvoguestyle” for 15% off your order through the end of August! Also note – her name has changed to Charming Affairs by Noreen (so you can find her better on all social media)!

XOXO,

P.S. If I were getting married today, I would definitely have an  intricate dessert table and would have paid less attention to the cake. Everyone wants variety nowadays so I personally think it’s better to spend your money on a dessert table (and get a fake or even just a basic cake to) to make your guests happy!
