About Us

Creative License is a full service event and wedding decorating company that has been creating beautiful weddings and top notch events throughout the Minnesota metro area and eastern Wisconsin since 2001.  My name is Terry Gentry and I am the owner and head designer at Creative License.  I have over 25 years in the wedding and special event industry and founded Creative License after I working as a event designer and later as buyer for a large national event company.  Our staff is  comprised of handpicked, dedicated, experienced , talented decorators.  They take great personal pride in every event we do and will go the extra mile to make your guests go "WOW"  

Why us...

I knew at that time there had to be a better way to make everyone's wedding beautiful and affordable. I began Creative License to give better and more personal service to the smaller clients.  Bigger isn't always better and there are plenty of large decorating companies out there with large warehouses, staff and overhead and they are booking many events each day.  You may not get the experienced,  A-list decorators for your wedding.  We only take as many wedding or events are we are comfortable with doing on any given day.  Many times we have had to turn down potential clients to make sure we are providing exceptional work for those that have already booked our services. Our events and weddings are coordinated directly with you or your venue contact.  We can arrange a consultation with you at your venue or at our warehouse. We can also coordinate all services through phone calls or e-mail, whatever works best for you.


At Creative License we provide full service decorating to insure that each wedding or event looks perfect. We require our product to be set up and taken down by our staff. thus insuring a flawless look for your event.  Our pricing includes delivery, set and take down within a 20 mile range of our office*.  There are no hidden fees or special weekend or late night fees.  We will coordinate with your venue for delivery, set up and take down of your decor, one less detail you need to worry about!

*Depending on location there may be a out of area charge.
