With the pandemic coming to a close, the party-planning industry has never been more ready to get back to work. With countless event cancellations and the lack of in-person options in the past year, party-planning businesses have taken quite the hit from COVID-19.

A study conducted by Avenue Event Group found, “96% of our survey participants said that they would (or already have) seen at least a 25% decrease in revenue for 2020. We also recorded that 75% of respondents have six months or less to keep their businesses operating at the same level, pre-pandemic before they have to make hard decisions. While 22% have already made some tough decisions”. has decided to tackle these issues head-on in order to uplift their hundreds of customers in the event-planning space. To do so, they have launched the “Best of” Contest – a people’s choice style contest which encourages the community to come out and show support for their favorite party-planning small businesses.

The contest will be accepting votes for businesses under any of the following categories:
  • Dresses
  • Tuxedos
  • Venues & Banquet Halls
  • Cakes & Desserts
  • DJs
  • Photography & Video
  • Limos & Party Buses
  • Live Music
  • Choreography
  • Hair
  • Makeup
  • Catering

Winners will receive a feature in our Best of digital magazine, print magazine (annual edition), solo highlight in Best of virtual event, social media features on our platforms, and much more!

All nominees will receive a shout-out in our digital magazine.

Voting is live NOW through September 15, 2021. Click HERE to vote and view more details!

We will also be hosting a live, virtual event on October 3, 2021 to announce the winners and discuss upcoming Quinceanera trends for 2022! You can reserve your spot now.
