Ali Skokos established Lavish Design and Events in 2012 as an outlet for her powerful creative energies.


Since the founding in 2012, she has spent the past years proving her ability to plan weddings, bridal showers, engagement parties, baby showers, and birthdays with a detailed attention to design that borders on obsession, and an exceptional level of customer service that is unparalleled in the Central Florida area.


Based out of Bradenton, Florida, we focus on the Sarasota, St Petersburg, and the Tampa areas; but have planned events across the country and even international destination weddings!


There is no occasion too large or intimate for our full event planning services, and we will strive to make your special day unforgettable; not only for you, but for your guests as well.
