About Simply Chic Soirées, LLC

Simply Chic Soirées was created after a happy accident.

In 2002, Amaris enlisted in the United States Army Reserves, a decision that would change her life forever. After being volunteered by her First Sergeant to throw a holiday ball, she unknowingly became the resident event planner for every event thereafter.

From working with a strict army budget to the clients Amaris works with now, she’s learned that every client brings something different to the table and the challenge of planning an event that reflects her client’s unique taste is one she’s always ready to undertake.

If her twelve years of military service has taught her anything, it’s the importance of integrity and honesty. Planning any event can feel overwhelming when you’re not sure where to start and what are your best options. That’s why at Simply Chic Soirées their Atlanta Event Planning Packages are all-inclusive, so you know exactly what you’re getting and the exact cost.

If you’ve ever browsed an event planner’s website and struggled to find the cost of their services or packages, then you understand the importance of transparency as much as they do.

The events they plan today look a little bit different from the army holiday balls but three elements remain the same – music, love and laughter.

About Episode

What do weddings, baby showers, engagements, and other social events have in common? Among other qualities, all of these events bring people together. They connect people on a familial and community level. In recent years, technology has made it even easier to coordinate and manage these events, but a professional planner is still considered ideal for making sure everything goes off without a hitch.

Some say the first known event planner was Cleopatra herself. From her extravagant events and parties, often designed to single out those who might be worthy of her attention, we see the traditions of event planning extending to Medieval French Royalty and beyond throughout history.

For many, special occasions and events simply cannot come together without the experience and connections of a professional event planner. In the United States alone, there are over 23,000 wedding planners alone. This is an industry whose market size has been placed at approximately $855.5 million. Even as the uncertainty of COVID continues to hang over us, event planners like our guest today have made it clear that they are going to be there for people in one form or another.

All of that said, many individuals, companies, and families see hiring a qualified and talented event planner, as an unnecessary expense! Most of these special events though, the host wants to enjoy their special occasion themselves. They don’t want to be worrying about other vendors showing up on time, running out of food and or drinks, and the list goes on. That’s where a professional and expert event coordinator like our guest, Amaris Taylor from Simply Chic Soirées, LLC, helps keep all of the “if it can happen it will happen” issues appear non-existent.

For an event business empire that began unexpectedly, Amaris has built a strong, creative business. Even in the face of COVID-19, Amaris continues to promote her passion and calling in life, while working with a wide array of clients to make their dreams come true for a special event they will remember always.
