I hired this vendor last year for our wedding in September 2020 . Our venue was changed as well as our dates . We got married at our home instead in regards to Covid restrictions It turned out well eventually. I was okay with them as they wer...
e reasonable in their pricing at the time . A small company but growing maybe to fast to handle all that needs to be done. They did not put the correct date in their change of schedule but arrived at the right place a week early . Ok, Fortunately for us it was a week early. I found that they were a bit disorganized . They did do a wonderful job with the floral design and table settings. I asked about the next year for the date September 25,2021. I was happy to hire them again for our Anniversary celebration .Jillian told me that would be great if Covid restrictions allow the venue and vendors to work again . Jillian confirmed that that date was opened and we should reconnect in the next year closer to the event .I checked in with Jillian around May 2021 since I had not heard from her to confirm that it was looking promising . All other many of our vendors and venue did. Finally after sending a text a couple of times . Jillian reaches back out to me and tells me that she already has someone else booked on that date and that we didn't have a contract . I was taken a back as I thought we had an understanding due to Covid we were on standby and I was happy to have that date. If I was asked to put a down payment then I would have been happy to do so if someone else was interested in the same day I would absolutely understand. She said that due to so many cancellations she got swamp when everything opened up and basically forgot about us . She was a referral from my wedding coordinator Simply Taleah who also works with her . This seems to be a reflection on the performance from both of them as when I spoke to Taleah about what happen ,she brushed it off . It seems to me that this is a tricky business to deal with as most people don't plan a wedding again so soon :) but, I want to reach out to any reader and share my experience to any one that may consider planning a wedding event / anniversary or any celebration to take in consideration how these vendors perform and work with others . This is a very costly investment and it is important to be attentive to whom you are working with and their ethics to do a good or excellent job. I would not recommend To Be Design to any of my friends or others . I find that they could have been honest and had done better. I felt like a one and done !

Jillian Ziska and her team make magic. Our wedding planner suggested her, and when I met her, saw her design studio, and then heard how she thought about transforming our site for an outdoor wedding, I was hooked. And she absolutely did not dis...
appoint. Besides her amazing artistic ability, she has an astonishingly beautiful array of tables of all kinds, couches, chairs, and accessories to draw from. She looked over our site and delivered a design, illustrated with a site map so her team could execute perfectly on the day, coming up with ideas I never could have conceived. She provided a beautifully designed backdrop for the ceremony, and then as soon as that was concluded, her staff effortlessly moved seating to make amazing conversational and gathering areas. There was thoughtful room for the serving staff to pass trays of hors d'oeuvres, and equally good places for people to sit with friends to consume the entrees. She additionally had thought through where the musicians should be, the bartenders, coordinated wonderfully with all of the catering staff and their requirements. She is a consummate artist and team leader, and I would hire her and her team again in a heartbeat.

ecor items that were unique a challenge. Jillian and her team did not disappoint! From the beginning Jillian met with me to go over my vision to help me bring my wedding dream to light and even after I changed my mind several times, she was very helpful and accommodating. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was just as I pictured it to be, even down to me asking her to add additional signage items a week prior to the big day. Jillian is extremely talented, goes above and beyond and helped fulfill my vision. I highly recommend TBD and will be using them for any events I have in the future. You will not be disappointed, I am so thankful to have found To be Designed - thank you to Jillian and her team for a great wedding experience from start to finish.
