It’s Women’s History Month, and we’re here to celebrate the iconic women in event planning who are making a name for themselves in this exciting and fast-paced industry. These women are truly bad-ass, and their work speaks for itself. Let’s take a moment to appreciate their creativity, innovation, and unparalleled event planning skills.
First up is Mindy Weiss, the queen of event planning who has been in the business for over three decades. Mindy’s calming presence and imaginative eye make her the go-to planner for anyone looking to host a wedding, corporate event, non-profit event, or even a celebrity party. And with notable clients like the Kardashians, Ellen DeGeneres, and Sofia Vergara, it’s no surprise that Mindy’s net worth is $8 million.
Jennifer Bassett – Bassett Events
Jennifer Bassett of Bassett Events is another bad-ass woman who is taking the event planning world by storm. Her company specializes in planning high-profile charitable events, weddings, and private parties, and has worked for clients like John Legend, Carrie Underwood, and The World Wildlife Fund. From vendor contract negotiation to sound design, Jennifer and her team can do it all. We’re pretty sure they can even juggle flaming batons while they plan your event.
Debi Lilly – A Perfect Event
Debi Lilly of “A Perfect Event” has also made a name for herself in the industry. Her award-winning event and design firm based in Chicago has planned countless events, including Oprah’s on-air birthday party. With 20 years of experience, Debi and her team can design and plan galas, corporate events, weddings, and even workshops at the Nantucket Floral Camp. Oh, and did we mention that she’s been named “Top Wedding Planner” by Martha Stewart Weddings? We’re pretty sure that’s better than winning an Oscar.
Marcy Blum – Marcy Blum Events
Marcy Blum of Marcy Blum Events is an internationally sought-after event planner and entertaining expert with 30 years of experience. Her events have been attended by the likes of The Rockefeller family, Kevin Bacon, and Billy Joel. In fact, she’s so good at what she does that getting her to plan your event is currently on a referral-only basis. Marcy’s services range from venue selection and layout to guest concierge services and everything in between. And what sets her apart from the rest? Her incredible imagination, which helps her events innovate rather than follow trends.
Lisa Vorce – Lisa Vorce Co.
