Worth every penny, and then some.

Hiring Melanie Parent Events was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning. Melanie, Paige, and their team absolutely reduced our stress in ways we wouldn't have expected, helped to put out last minute fires that popped up, and just made our wedding experience run so much smoother. Without them, I would have been too stressed out to really enjoy our wedding day. With them, every detail was in place the way we imagined, and a few details we hadn't even thought of were put in place before we even realized something had been missed. Every bride should be so lucky as to have this team behind them.

Melanie and their team is amazing!

Hiring Melanie was an absolute dream and 1000% worth the money. Melanie knew exactly what our vision was for the wedding day and executed it PERFECTLY. Melanie coordinated all the vendors leading up to the wedding and I knew I didn't have to worry about a thing. Would recommend Melanie and their team 100%. Thanks so much Melanie!

Melanie is a wedding fairy godmother!!

Melanie is so kind, professional, flexible and just down right amazing wedding planner! From the moment we sat down with her we KNEW she was the right person for the job!! I was able to get the best advice on which vendors would work best with our venues! From DJ, to table decorations to photo booth- not to mention we were ONLY able to book glitter and glue parties because MELANIE WAS OUR WEDDING PLANNER! (They graciously accepted us as clients even tho they were fully booked). We had so much fun planning our short notice wedding with MPE (4 months of engagement)!! Her attention to detail, ability to clearly communicate your vision and wedding dreams to your vendors is impeccable! Thank you for all your hard work and determination to make our dreams a reality! Our day truly would not have been the same without you!!

Amazing Wedding Planner

Melanie is an amazing lady! She is so easy to work with, she listens to what you have to say and does what you ask. We only used Melanie for the day of and without her help our day would not have turned out as amazing as it did. Everything was set up beautifully and the evening flowed just as planned. We couldn't have chosen a better wedding planner.

So happy that we chose Melanie to be apart of our wedding day! We had the month of day of package and it was so wonderful to have Melanie there for the last month leading up to the wedding to make sure everything was ready to go. She helped eliminate all of the stress in the weeks leading up to our wedding. She is organized and professional. Her hard work and dedication to each client is evident. I am so glad we decided to higher a planner and I am SO glad we chose Melanie to do that job. I would 100% recommend her if you are looking for a wedding planner! Thank you Melanie!

Highly recommend!!!

Almost a year since we got married and to this day we still feel like it was yesterday. Melanie and her team did an amazing job creating our vision perfectly; it was everything we imagined and planned for. They were so respectful with our needs, have been so patient with our schedules, and have been nothing but professional and cooperative. They were so helpful with giving us pointers and ideas as well as to what to expect and prepare for which has been extremely helpful. The wedding was also stress-free as Melanie made sure that everything was in order. Highly recommend Melanie Parent Events! Thank you Melanie 💕

Made our day go flawlessly

Highly recommend working with MPE if you're new to the wedding industry or if you feel a bit lost when it comes to planning. We did a Style & Design with Melanie and then had our month of services with Kristina, who executed the day perfectly — even better than what I had pictured in my head. We wanted to simply walk into the venue on the day and have to do absolutely nothing, and it came to fruition. Completely worth the money and would definitely do it again!

Easy, efficient, professional, amazing!

We had to change our plans for our wedding a couple of times but Melanie and Paige were great at helping us find solutions and create the wedding we dreamt of! Paige was incredible on our wedding day and handled everything, so much so I didn’t even know somethings happened because she fixed the issues fast. Our little girl wasn’t loving the ceremony but Paige swept in and helped calm her down fast, I was so impressed with everything but that really stuck out to me. I can’t say enough great things about them. Thank you ladies for helping us make our special day even more special ❤️

Worth every penny

Melanie was absolutely a life saver. She was a pro at evolving our plans with the ever changing public health orders. When plans changed two weeks before the wedding, she was able to create the most beautiful room for us with such short notice. She was always extremely responsive and kept us on track for the big day. Would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. Couldn’t have done it without her!
