Bad experience, was not helpful

Mel gave us attitude, and was not very helpful. Basically paid for an extra set of hands.

Amazing service

We hired Forever After for our wedding this past Sept! Mel was the best decision we made throughout the whole process! It’s hard to find words to explain how wonderful she is! All of the detail and planning leading up to and the day was taken care of! I would highly recommend her to anyone planning any type of event!

We loved forever after events!

Mel and her staff are the best (and most important) wedding money you will ever spend. We hired Mel as a day of wedding planner in order to handle our strict same-day set up and tear down at our venue, not only did she execute that to perfection, but she ran the rest of the day with authority and professionalism.

She kept the wedding on time, she handled guests who had too much to drink, she made sure the music was playing as soon as the band wasn't, and also that the music was shut off when someone was making a speech. She made our venue look absolutely spectacular, she cleaned up spilled drinks and broken glass, and she did more things that i didn't have to worry (or know) about because I knew she was handling it. At the end of the wedding she worked tirelessly to tear everything down, and she delivered everything to us the next day.

Our wedding was such an insane amount of fun, and that is because we actually got to participate in it; instead of taking on the impossible task of running it. Mel's effectiveness at running a wedding with over 160 people in attendance really speaks to her organizational skill and event experience. Thank you Mel, and to everyone else: hire her. Trust me on this one.
