Planning a Special Celebration? Try an Event “inspired by you”


Your special day – wedding, birthday, celebration – is a reflection of who you are. That’s why Nspired Events avoids a “cookie cutter” model.

Lucy Chung, owner and certified wedding planner explains, “just because a wedding plan, a dress, an invitation or type of photography worked for someone else, it doesn’t mean it will work for you”.

Nspired Events has arranged events for groups from 20 to 400. “We talk with our clients, uncover their particular dynamic as a couple, their likes and dislikes and their story. Then we bring these characteristics to what we create for them,” said Lucy.

Some of Lucy’s clients come from different cultural backgrounds. In these cases, the events are designed with both cultures in mind, blending their celebrations into one, while giving the guests a taste of both.

Before moving to Toronto, Lucy gained considerable experience planning corporate events as a public relations professional in San Francisco. She combined this experience with time spent at her mother’s bridal shop in Vancouver.

Nspired Events opened last June in a beautiful Victorian home setting, and has been a busy place since. There’s a showroom on the main floor with dresses and accessories, make up and photography on the second, and an independent jewelry designer on the third.

They provide one-stop shopping for weddings and other special occasions. Services include event planning, photography, make-up, hair, flowers, dresses, accessories, décor and personalized invitations. Lucy’s team also arranges for a wide-range of additional services.

You can purchase or rent bridal dresses, eveningwear, dresses for children, tuxedos and culturally specific dresses. Lucy notes this is a popular choice for brides that have more than one change of clothing.

“It was an awesome year,” says Lucy, “Lots of people in the Leslieville and Beaches neighbourhood dropped by to look at our selection of trendy accessories for all occasions such as unique hair pieces and jewelry, and of course, to admire the dresses.”

Just come by and have a look. You’ll be drawn in by the creative window displays – of course, custom-made by Lucy and her staff.
