Central Maine's Premier Wedding and Event Planner

A Lavish Affaire is based in Winslow Maine and our goal is to help anyone with an important event in his or her life, to be able to enjoy it the way they should. Our firm was established to offer an affordable option not only for the design and decor aspect of any function but as a full-scale event planning and wedding coordinating company as well. Don’t let the stress and worries of paying the vendors the day of your event, making sure everyone is where they are supposed to be and wondering if everything is going to happen according to schedule ruin the special occasion you worked so hard to create.

Lynne Choate, owner and founder of A Lavish Affaire, has over 7 years experience in the hospitality industry including banquet and restaurant management. She left the hospitality industry and for 6 years worked as the Director of Operations for an established receivables company in Central Maine, then as office manager for Maine TREE Foundation planning fundraising events and managing their financials.

Having done many weddings and other parties as favors to friends, as well as for herself, she has seen the lack of options available when it comes to event planning causing people in the area to possibly have to spend more money than they want to or forcing them to take the burden on themselves. Because of this, she created A Lavish Affaire to offer a number of package choices as well as pricing to suit any budget.

"...thank you very much for all your hard work and your assistants as well, you are very nice and friendly, everything went well and I am very happy with the turnout, most importantly the birthday boy had a blast and the guests loved it. I will call you again should I or any of my friends decide to plan a party."

"Lynne and her crew were great. We had some problems with communication with some of our vendors and they took over and handled it all for us. They were easy to work with and talk to and got right back to us whenever we had a question or problem. She made everything flow for the entire wedding. If anything went wrong, we never knew anything about it."
