Located in Caledon, Ontario, Marvelle Events is a company that specializes in providing beautiful and timeless decorations for weddings and other special events. This team has always adored, collected and restored antiques, vintage finds & shabby chic treasures. While being exposed to so many amazing events & assisting their clients to find these unique items, it became a natural transition to put their existing inventory into work & start expanding. In 2012, Marvelle Events was born.
Owners, Dan & Laura Forbes have been a team for 15 years. In that time, they have a combined 30 years’ experience in the event industry. They began with their sister company, Sounds Of Distinction Entertainment, back in 2001. This was a natural beginning since they both are so outgoing & passionate about music. In 2007, Laura became a certified wedding planner & they launched Marvelle Events and this year they are currently celebrating their 10 year anniversary!
The company’s inventory is comprised of more than 1500 items, along with a full collection of Harvest Tables and custom bars. Specializing in unique, rustic, and vintage decoration items, the company provides items such as tables, chairs, furniture, frames, mirrors, windows, doors, bars, collections, centerpieces, table numbers, mason jars, typewriters, picnic sets, sporting goods, serving ware, and much more. Items such as tents, portable washrooms, linens, dishware, glassware, draping, etc., are also provided.
They have recently moved into the greater Orangeville Area near Caledon Ontario, not far from the Historic Villages of Alton, The Cataract & Belfountain. They service Caledon, Dufferin County, Toronto, the GTA, Niagara, Muskoka’s, Guelph, Kitchener/Waterloo, Central & Southern Ontario. They will travel to further regions by request and based on availability. However, they do not work out of province.

Amazing people & Beautiful pieces
Wonderful Wedding with Marvelle!
Total disappointment - Money wasted
When we expressed our concerns, we were met with a lot of push back and refusal to take our concerns seriously.
Marvelle claims they tried to fix it, but what they're not sharing is that they require even MORE money from us to 'fix it', beyond what we originally agreed to in the contract. Would you blame us for cancelling our contract with them?! We'd be crazy to give them anymore money than we already have - they're already refusing to refund the money we already paid them. In addition, we don't want them having anything to do with our wedding after the stress they've already put us through. I'm so upset even writing this.
And the kicker? We scrambled to find another vendor 2 weeks prior to our big day who will be delivering the custom build that Marvelle deemed 'impossible' to make, to our exact specifications, for less money, AND we own it. So we wont have to watch Marvelle rent out the piece that we paid to have made. Lesson learned. The other vendor has been provided outstanding service though, sending updates and progress photos and actually listening to our feedback/concerns. If you're interested, we're working with Kyle from The Goodwood & Co - you'll be seeing our custom build posted on their Facebook page in a few days.
My advice to other readers: Save yourself the stress and find someone else to work with for your wedding day. There are tons of other vendors who do the same thing and won't cause the headache.
Advice to Marvelle: Re-evaluate your customer service practices. You've completely lost our trust, respect, and business for good.
Amazing month-of coordination service!
On the day of our wedding, Laura pulled everything together beautifully. She used her creative style and eye to make the venue look gorgeous. Her calm demeanour kept me incredibly calm and stress-free throughout the entire process (especially the day of!) because I knew she had everything under control and would be able to deal with anything that came up.
We had so many comments from our close family and friends about how great Laura was and we couldn't agree more. I would recommend Marvelle Events coordination service (and rentals!) to anyone getting married in the GTA!
Thank you so much to Laura and team! :)
Low quality lighting and support
There were some cheap string christmas lights leftover from a previous wedding, and we think Dan used this as an excuse to do very little.
Dan was also not helpful in troubleshooting - There were 3 bulbs in a row that were out directly above the dance floor - when I contacted Dan to see if he could fix them he said he was far away but would see if anyone else was around, and then just never got back to me. Not exactly a "Wow" job. Very disappointing, and though I like Dan personally, I would not recommend him to others looking for lighting.
