Phoenix-based Stylish Events by Lisa Awarded World’s Top Wedding Planner for 2023
OK! Magazine recognizes Stylish Events by Lisa as the top wedding planner on a global scale for 2023. Lisa Foster, the owner and chief planner, attributes her success to her organization skills and passion that turned a hobby into a thriving business.
With 12 years of experience and a dedicated team, Stylish Events by Lisa plans diverse and unique events, not just weddings, across Arizona and beyond. The company is known for its landmark weddings for LGBTQ couples post-legalization in 2015 and has served as wedding planner for some Arizona Diamondbacks players.
The diversity of their services and resilience, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, have been key factors in their global success. “Surviving COVID was a challenge for all of us, but the ones that came out, we were just like, wow, we made it through. Then, we hit the major boom after COVID,” said Foster.
Current economy trends indicate a shift in wedding preferences. A study from the Thriving Center of Psychology revealed that 73% of young adults find weddings too expensive. Foster has noticed a rise in demand for micro weddings in response to the economic climate.
The unexpected honor from OK! Magazine has been overwhelming for Foster and her team. She urged those interested in her services to book as soon as possible, given the busy wedding season from September to May in Phoenix. Stylish Events by Lisa’s team plans a range of events, from weddings and social gatherings to corporate and destination events, producing between 36 and 50 events annually.
