It’s all in the details…

Kate Jackson-MearaKatie Jackson-Meara Founder and planner ~ So Dressed Up

In short: I create, style, and produce custom, chic events nationwide and love what I do.

I have been obsessed with great style, darling little details and perfectly planned parties for as long as I can remember. My passion for planning the perfect event, complete with every adorable detail my clients can dream up, {and years of incredible experience in the event and fashion worlds} prompted me to create So Dressed Up- a Chicago based wedding and event planning business with an obsession for perfect plans, impeccable style and darling details (of course!) Whether it’s a chic dinner party or your wedding day, I believe your event should be a reflection of your personal style; unique and fabulous. Some of my work can be seen in The Knot Chicago, Style Me Pretty, CS Brides, Glossed and Found, Be U Weddings, The Suntimes: Splash, Weddings by Design and more. In 2012, I was named one of Refinery 29’s Hottest 30 Under 30 in Chicago for my entrepreneurial accomplishments and work in the event and bridal industries. I have worked with Macy’s, Kate Spade New York, BHLDN, chic couples and a variety of other personal and professional clients in cities nationwide on weddings and events of all shapes, sizes and styles, of course!

When I’m not crafting the perfect party, you can find me on long city walks in J.Crew flats and oversized sunnies. I love everything about the city- especially sharing time with my hubbie, friends and family. I adore vintage shopping, travelling, Chanel lip gloss, my grandma’s costume jewelry, fashion, bridal, and home design glossies, gorgeous china, lush peonies, and Mo-town music. I’ve never met a bow I didn’t like and believe everyone should live a life that’s So Dressed Up! Keep up with me and the inspiration behind So Dressed Up on Darling Details! xo
