About Melissa Andre Events
Your wedding is your chance to share your love story with the most important people in your life. At the same time, a wedding should be a treat for one’s guests and an event they will enjoy attending and talking about for years to come. Great events are immaculately executed and rich with detail. Your wedding should be catered to reflect your signature point of view. Recognizing that, while one couple may want to treat their guests by serving individual wedding cakes with sparklers for dessert, another may prefer to wow them with an aerialist performance while they pick up their place cards. Whatever your style, Melissa Andre Events can make it happen.
Completely planning package supports the couple with every aspect of the wedding planning process. Whether you already have a clear vision or feel in mind or would prefer to create an inspiration board collaboratively with Melissa, her breadth of experience in luxury weddings, corporate events, and the fashion industry will elevate the level of your wedding above what you, your friends, and your family have ever imagined. Completely package also includes day-of coordination services to ensure the execution of your dream wedding is top notch.

Terrible Experience - Stay Away!

I bought the full wedding planner package for my wedding and to say I was disappointed at the lack of professionalism is an understatement. Melissa barely participated (or showed up) to any of the meetings and had her interns lie about her “car breaking down”, whilst posting about lunches she was having. She continually put other vendors and people looking for her professional advice down which was completely off-putting during a meeting that was supposed to be celebrating a beautiful event. One of the biggest issues I had was that she lied about vendor pricing and I ended up paying so much more than what the vendors actually charged which is ridiculous considering how much the full package is. While I understand there are kick-backs, this should be transparent in the contract. In addition, her staff never visited the wedding venue beforehand, nor did they engage with the venue staff resulting in a significant delay in the reception schedule. She makes her staff/interns (who are lovely) do all of the work, however they are inexperienced and if you are paying for a package of her services, you expect her to deliver accordingly. I found she was more concerned about the celebrity weddings she had done as opposed to planning a beautiful wedding for couples who realistically, contribute to her business. I would highly recommend staying away from her wedding planning services as there are a number of wonderful wedding planners who will take the time to do a beautiful and stunning job for your special day.

Melissa and her team are an absolute dream come true! Planning the wedding was a family affair for us, so Sophia and Melissa were especially good at bringing together all of the noise we made. What separates Melissa and her team from other vendors is that MAE isn't wedding planning, it's wedding design. Melissa takes an artistic approach to her weddings which is beyond the logistics-oriented one her competitors emphasize (logistics are an assumed part of wedding planning, what else can you do for us!) We held our event at the Art Gallery of Ontario and needed arrangements for a prayer room, Halal food and outstanding entertainment. Melissa's team went above and beyond to make sure all of our needs were met and that the venue, menu and entertainment were the best our guests had ever seen. We have never attended a wedding like the one Melissa had planned for us and don't think anyone else will be able to either -- it felt like being inside an Oscars AP! Melissa is a visionary wedding planner who will add intellectual and creative depth to any event she touches. Quite literally the most fabulous planner in Toronto!

I didn't know much about what I wanted for my wedding day before I was engaged, but I did know I wanted to use Melissa Andre Events to plan it. Then after we got engaged my now husband and I met with Melissa and were totally sold and excited to be working with her and her team. We knew we wanted someone to help us with the actual planning of our wedding and help carrying the load of all the details, but more than that, we wanted someone to help us design the day. Someone to help bring our vision for the day to the next level.
Next level it was. Melissa and I were lucky because we also shared a lot of similar interests and vision for the day . She listened to what we liked and didn't and went from there. It was a collaborative effort in many ways. Melissa has so many unique ideas and so many awesome contacts with her vendors that I highly recommend not micro managing her. There were lots of little details and design elements that we didn't even know or ask about and because of that we were able to be SO surprised the day of. It made it all so much more exciting for us. You can leave those things in the hands of Melissa and her team and trust that it will be organized and beautiful and ad so much to the day.
I can't even tell you how much was taken off our plates by Melissa and her team. They are organized & professional & honest. And while those are all very important qualities in a wedding planner I would say that Melissa Andre and her team are the very best at design and unique ideas and execution. If you want a day that is unlike any other weddings you have attended, this is the company for you. Our day was everything we wanted and more and that is in large part due to Melissa. It was literally a fairytale, the magic of the day combined with the design and incredibly unique details. People are still telling us how beautiful & original the day was. I wish we could get married all over again, and if we could, the first call I would make would be to her...again.

Melissa and team created the wedding of our dreams, it was more then we could ever have imagined. Melissa's creative flair and attention to detail were some of many talents she and her team have to offer.
Melissa has a large group of vendors that are so flexible and talented. She takes pride in her relationships with vendors and clients and truly makes you feel at ease.
I can confidently say, my wedding would not have been what it was without her and I value the relationship we now have.
In a heart beat we would do it all again!
